THE UPPER DES MOIKKS: ALGOKA IOWA, WEDNESDAY AtJGUHt 4L COMPLEXION SUGGESTIONS, A complexion specialist Is authority for the statement that the hest and safest animal fat for thfi skin Is goose crease, which is absorbed quickly and closely resembles human adipose in composition. Fruit is considered by many authorities as one of the best aids to digestion. Therefore, they say it should be eaten freely. Its beneficial effect Is due to the, malic and other acids which O re found In the cultivated fruits, such a g pears, apples, granes. etc. RAMS HORNS.

"Ever since spinniug was a type o£ iTomntily industry from nge to age', it has been expected that beautiful apparel should clothe women. From the clasnic robes ot Aspusin to the rich dresses of Elizabeth, iind thence to the wedding gown of Puritan Vrisfolln we see the attractiveness of dress." But at 'his time only has it become possible for all women to be becomingly attired at u small cost, the supply ot beautiful inexpensive dress fabrics now to be had, making it au easy matter. Yet there are womeii who insist that, the expense of having summer gowns laundered is greater than the original cost, and that in tho end light woolens or summer silks are more economical. This is a mistaken idea, as washing pretty belongings is a fine nrt, which is very easy to learn. Any girl no matter how delicately reared can wash her own summer gowns. A bright day plenty of water, and u little-pure soap are the necessary aids in the work. To do it fill a tub two-thirds full of warm water dissolve n fourth ot a cake of Ivory Soap (which will not fade tho most delicate colors), add it to tue water, wash tho gar roents carefullv through it, rinse first in clear -water, tlien in blue water, wring dip in thin starch, hang on the line in th shade. When dry, sprinkle, and iron on the wrong side. ' Eliza R. Parkor. That Old Money Ouegtion. Ada—The count is to call on papa to-rnor row. Carrie—Ah! An international monetary conference. MISCELLANY.

HOMAS THOMAS is one of the numbers of young pitchers who has yet to make a name In his chosen profession. He was born on Dec. 27, 1873, at Shawnee, 0., and it was at his native place that he took his initiative lessons in the mysteries of curving the ball. After gaining some rural knowledge, and considerable confidence in his ability to deceive the batsman, he applied for and received his first engagement with the Peoria club, of the Western association, for the season of 1805, and he not only demonstrated his ability to hold his own as a pitcher, but ranked high as a batsman In the forty-eight games that he participated in, having a batting average of .31fi. His fine showing during his first year as a professional led to his engagement with the Detroit club, of the Western league, for the season of 1896. He participated in only twenty championship games last season, but showed such efficiency that he was re-engaged for this season. Some of his best pitching performances while with the Peoria club were as follows: In three games played on May 4, 12, 14, 1895, he allowed the Lincoln, Des Moines and St. Joseph teams each only five safe hits. On May 17 the St. Josephs made only four safe hits. On June 28 the St. Josephs made only three safe hits and scored one run off his delivery, while eleven of them were retired on strikes. On July 29 the Denvero made only two safe hits off him. His best batting feats that year were: May 24, three safe hits, including a double bagger: July 12, three safe hits, including two double baggers; Aug. 18, three safe hits; Sept. 8, four safe hits, including a triple and two double baggers; Sept. 25, three safe hits, including a triple bagger. During the season of 1S9G he was credited with pitching a number of good games. His most noteworthy performance occurred on the afternoon of Aug. 18, at Detroit, when he pitched in two games against the Indianapolis team. In the opening game he prevented the Hoosiers from making more than two safe hits and shut them out without a run. The second game the Indianapolis won 7 to C. In the two games he struck out eleven batsmen. Thus far this year he is credited with several good pitching' performances. On April 28, at Indianapolis, he held the Hoosiers down to three safe hits, from which they scored only one run. On May 6, at Detroit, the Columbus team could score only two runs, although they were credited with eleven safe hits, while seven of them were retired on strikes. On May 21, at Detroit, the Kansas Citys made only three safe hits off his delivery. He is also hitting hard and with a frequency that ells. condition; catchers who have effectual* ly stopped base stealing; pitchers with confidence that they were to be well supported; an infield capable of playing all the nice points and on the a;ert, for different kinds of hitting, and an outfield covering an immense lot of ground. These are a few of the reasons. Then Boston has the finest string of base runners connected with any one club. The men are hard and willing workers, and they remember how they were treated when they were playing in hard luck by the loyal brigade who had confidence in their ability to play good bare ball. "Ah! but will they keep it up?" chimes in the hungry looking skeptic. Well, I should say they were as likely to do so as is any other club. The team is composed of men who have gone through championship seasons are not likely to weaken if a good chance comes to battle for the pennant coming down the home stretch. The players are medium-sized and natural players, and started the season in good condition. They are not as likely to be injured as larger men. They will certainly meet defeat, and at times may look for a strange hoodoo In camp, but the way they faced the music after standing the gaff at the go off is evidence enough for me that they will play the string out this year and at least have a shy at that Temple Cup money. SILENT StJFFEREM Women do not Like to Tell ft t>bot6t the Details of their Private Ills. A Clever Inll«l«ler. Samuel Oillen, the clever Infielder, who has been playing third base and short field for the Philadelphia club this season, was born in 1870, at Allegheny, Pa., and gained considerable local prominence as an amateur before starting out on his professional career, which he did with the Davenport club, of the Illinois-Iowa league, in 1891, he The reason why so many women in silence from the multiple disorders connected with their sextinl system is that they cannot bear to broach the subject to a inari, even if he is a physician. No one can blame a modest, sensitive woman for this reticence. It is unneces* sary in these times, however, for a womatt makes to all afflicted women a most generous offer. Mrs. Pinkham of Lynn, Mass., bids every •woman who suffers to write to her and confide every symptom that annoys her, and she will give her advice without charge, and that advice is based upon the greatest experience ever possessed by man or woman in this country, and extends over a period of twenty-three years, and thousands upon i thousandsof cases. Why suffer in silence any longer, my sister, whenyoucnngethelpfortheasking? Don't fear to tell her every thitiff.

The Baltimore club has picked up by a purchase from the Texas league pitcher George Blackburn, who was a pitcher with Wilkesbarre in 1894, evidently on the strength of the work he has been doing in that circuit this season and last. Blackburn is essentially Southern pitcher, and unless Han- Ion luck or the great support given by the champions pulls him through games we believe he will not be a success in the North. His opening with Wilkesbarre was exceptionally auspicious, for when he struck the club early participating in GO championship gamea that season, in 56 of which he played as short stop. In 1892 he was with the Quincy club, of the same league, and had a fielding average of .905 as a short stop. In 1893 he was with the Macon club, of the Southern league. In 1894 he was with the Wilkesbarre club, of the Eastern league, participating in 106 championship games that season, in all of which he played as third baseman. In 1895 he was a member of the Detroit team, of the Western league, participating in 125 championship games, in 115 of which he played at short field. That season he was credited with making some remarkable performances, both at the bat and in the field. He was re-engaged for the season of 1896, when he participated in 139 championship games, in all o which he played as a third baseman and again did good work. His battin performances for last year included th making of ten home runs, 15 triple bag gers and 30 double basers. Upon th advice (if Manager Stallings the Phila delphia club drafted him last fall.

He pitched against Springfield, Providence and Binghamton, and was a thorough puzzle, winning in a walk. But Dan Shannon and his crew struck Binghamton on a Saturday which happened to be very cold, and in the first inning Blackburn was ballooning at a great rate. The first inning saw five two-base hits plugged into right field and Blackburn was an easy mark from that time on. He bec-ime wild and unsteady, losing nearly every game he pitched, and when released Scranton picked him up as a makeshift, but his usefulness was gone. And in the South the following season he again became the wonder that he seems to be in. the Southern or Texas league circuit. The lilaivted Hldlot. There is a little Englishman connec ud with one of the papers down In Wilkesbarre, Pa., who, having lately discovered that the American people prefer base ball to the British game of cricket, relieves himself as follows: "An amusing phase of base ball has recently developed in this town. With the club's treasury at a low ebb the business men using the most Etrenu- ous efforts to induce other business men to subscribe funds with which to pay the players the salaries agreed to be paid, in order to keep up the team and places for the players, and every "manjack" of them howling for an increase in salary, one would think that they would be pleased and satisfied to get all for which they engaged to play instead of asking for more. The amusing feature is to see a lot of staid and energetic business men, who work from 10 to 16 hours every day, hustling around devoting hours and hours of time, which would otherwise be devoted to their own business advancement, to raising money with w>hlch to pay a lot of ingrates for working—if ball playing is work—two hours a day, when it, don't rain or the grounds are not wet, or they are not riding around in the sleeping coaches at some one else's expense. Paying them more money, too, than 99 per cent of them can earn at anything else they are capable of performing. Of course everybody knows ball players don't earn the money paid them except in cases where the club for which they may be playing is making money, and then they earn it only because the party employing them is making money by their playing. Where the club is losing money the players are certainly not earning the amount qf their salaries."
