Portasre Lake ......... 14 J .667 Canadian Soo 11 J? Pittsburgh i ' 5 - American Soo jj ' S Calumet .. 7 , 13 -cM Just to deanonstrate to the 4,000 people who gathered in Duquesne Garden that they -were in a class by themselves when it came to playing hockey, the Portage Lake team, leaders In the International Hockey league, gave the local seven its second defeat this week, the score last nisrhi being 2 to 0. As in the first contest, Stuart's men gave a real exhibition of the game, and while Pittsburgh put up a better 'front . than . they did on Tuesday, they were again outplayed. Lake shot both of his team's goals, one in the first half and ' one in the second. - - . In the' first half neither team had much advantage over the other, each side making numerous attempts at goals, but failing to connect, until a few minutes before time was up. when Lake took the puck up the ice and shot their first goal r-om in front of the local's net. Young and Smith tried time and again at the Houghton net. but the great work ot Goalkeeper Reagen kept the disk from going in. The Northerners made the second and final point about the middle of . the second half, when Lake again connected on a pass from Stuart. The- local men were unable to keep up with the champions in the second half and-played-on the defensive most of the time in an attempt to keep Stuart and his men from scoring. In the first half both sides placed the puck inside the net. but it was from an off-side play and didn't count. The work of Stuart and Taylor for the Houghton seven, and Toung, Campbell" and Smith .for Pittsburgh was the feature of the game, their individual playing being brilliant. Once in the second half, Taylor took the puck from In front of the champion's net and skated the length of the rink, only to be blocked as he went to shoot . by Toung, a lew feet from the net. Referee Schooley had things kind of easy in the way of penalizing, the game being one of the cieanest that had . been played this season. In the second half Stuart and Young came together, but were promptly benched before they could do each other any damage. By losing last night's game the locals Sropped to third place, and their chance ?or the championship of the league went nearly out of their reach." Their only hope now is by taking the remaining one and the Portage Lakes losing a game to Calumet. With this they can tie the leaders and play a post-season series. Their chance of doing this is slim, as even if they would win Saturday Portage Lake would only play the harder against the Calumets next week. Last night's line-UD:. Portage Lake 2. Pitsburgh-r-0.

BASEBALL PLAYERS ON PMCE- FIELDS. Doings Among Majors and Minors Boiled LV.vn for Busy Fans. The New York Giants are actively j-aetlcfng at lAn Angeles. They will play three games at San Francisco on March 18. 17 and It. George Gibson is working hard at West Baden to reduce his weight and he expects to be down to the desired 17a pounds within a few days. The four pitchers are showing admirable speed in dally workouts. The Connellsvllle team, of the Western Pennsylvania league, is to have a great drawing card In the shape of a giant Indian, Joe Whltecrow, 6 feet 4 Inches tall, a left-handed batter and pitcher. He comes from the Carlisle Indian school. The Sharon ball team yesterday received a signed contract for Pitcher Jackson, who was traded by Manager Alex Pearson, of Union-town, for Catcher Fred Ulrtch. of last year a Sharon team. Sharon will play exhibition games with Beaver Falls and Euclid Beach Park team, of Cleveland The Pittsburgh ball club haa decided to make use of two large portable batting nets during practice at Exposition jark. One will be located in front of the left wing of the grandstand and the other before the right wing, to protect the spectators from foul tips during the warming up prior to the games. Henry Willig. who has signed as outfielder for the East Liverpool team, of the P. O. M. league, has left Uniontown for his home at Wllllamsport. Harry Schuler, another player who has been wintering at Uniontown, has gone to his home at Philadelphia. Rurnor has it that Schuler may also be signed by Eaet Liverpool. The advance squad of Cincinnati Reds are tolling on the training field at Marlln. Tex., under a broiling Southern sun. and the strangers all seem to be showing up In splendid eryle. Captain John Gantel, In picking up a hot grounder, split the forefinger of his right hand, but he says It will not fteep him out of the game. Hans Wagner surprised Secretary Locke yesterday by paying a visit to the local headquarters. He did not sign his 1907 contract, preferring to live up to his old custom of waiting until the day before the Pirates start South. Trainer Ed La Force pronounced the big shortstop the most perfectly developed man In baseball. The Pirates and Cubs are reported to be quite chummy at West Baden. They practice together a great deal and pass the evenings largely in fanning. The mineral water treatment Is already showing good effects. Shorty Slagle, of Chicago, however, is still on the sick list and is not yet strong enough for work. The annual election of officers of the New Castle baseball club was held last night. They are: President, A. C. Hyde; treasurer. Scott Paisley; secretary. Will Aiken; directors. Dr. Allen Urmsson, Ralph Reed. Frank Smith. Frank Strawbecker, Bert Wells. Charles H. Young. A. G. Hyde. Will Aiken and Scott Talsley. Pitcher W. R. Slagle. of St. Paul, will not pitch for the Sharon baseball team the coming season. He signed a contract to twirl for Sharon, and it has since been ascertained that he was traded by St. Paul to Indianapolis for Outfielder Dunlevy. The matter was investigated and It was found that. Slagls was not free to sign. Announcement was made yesterday by officials of the Akron baseball club that Ben Caffyn, the outfielder, purchased by Cleveland from the Des Moines Western league team last fall, and who played 30 games with Cleveland, had been bought by Akron. Caffyn batted .320 in 97 games in the Western league. The Western association met at Kansas City yesterday and rejected a proposition of the Western league to take over the club at Tr-peka. This action, according to President O'Neill, of the Western league, is a violation of the agreement with the National association made at Buffalo with Secretary Farrell. as the representative of the National association. The purchase price. J3.000, was sent to President Shlveley, of the Southern association, a week ago. JOCKEY IS TRAMPLED ON CITY PARK TRACK.

Because of these irregularities the refuse and waste matters of the body are not promptly expelled, but are left to sour and ferment, producing irritating acids which are taken up by the blood and distributed to all parts of the system. This acrid matter weakens and diseases the blood so that instead of supplying the body with nourishing, healthful properties it deposits the poison with which it i3 loaded into the muscles, nerves, bones and joints, and Rheumatism gets complete control of the system. Some suffer almost constantly with the disease, while others have intervals of freedom, during which they live in constant dread of the next attack, when an exposure to cold or dampness or some other irregularity will cause the symp PURELY VEGETABLE Ing up the weak, sour blood to a state of purity and richness. S. S. S. is the King of blood purifiers, just what is needed for the cureof Rheumatism. Book on Rheumatism and any medical advice sent free. THE SWiMHT BDrmrMS GO. ATLANTA. CAm 1907. WILMINGTON.
