GAME HOLDS INTEREST 1 DECATUR HERALD i I II -1 v. Starchworker Will j rf Armistice Day Miners Confident of Easy Victory Over Locals. Followers of Independent football teams are centering their attention on the Staley-Taylorville game scheduled to be played in Taylorville, Nov. 11, as the chief attraction for a big celebration for service men there that day. ' Many have declared their Intentions of goli.g to Taylorville from Decatur. A special train may be chartered for the occasion. Both teams have a good record this year. Taylorville has played three games, having defeated Stonlngton -43-0. Benld 34-0 and Carlinville 78-0. Staley's suffered one defeat at the I Viands of the Peoria Tractors, who won from the locals 3-0 with a drop kick from the 35 yard line. The strength -of the Staley team can not be figured on that game however, as the players had practised but one week together when It was played and the challenge was accepted with the understanding that the Tractors give Decatur a return game. Manager Fritz Wasem has been endeavoring to have the Tractors come to Decatur soon but now that they have a clean slate, they are taking no chances of coming to Decatur and having Staley's hand them a defeat. In Staley's other two games, played after some practise, the local squad has walked away from its opponents. Stonington fell 50-0 and Staunton's vaunted coal miners fell under the onslaught of the locals 89-0. Will 'ot Import Players Taylorville papers came out with a story recently which said that A. E. St. ley had been heard to say that he would stand an expense of $4,000 to bring players to defeat Taylorville in that game. This report Is absolutely without foundation, and Staley's will go to Taylorville with the same lineup which has been used heretofore. "We are not going to Import any men, because we have a strong enough team to go down there and defeat those fellows without doing so" said Capt. Wasem, Tuesday night. "My men are going to work hard for the next two weeks and when the team lines up against Taylorville, it is going to show real style of football. During the last two days, we have been unable to work on the field, but Tuesday evening was given over to a blackboard lecture. Coach Brannan Is In charge of us now and is teaching us new plays. "Pep" will be our slogan from now on and we are going down there to win." So confident are Taylorville fans of winning that they are betting that to MB Be Main Attraction on Staley's will not . even score a touchdown. They will not bet that Staley's will not score, because they are afraid of Jack Mintun's toe which has proven very accurate in the games so far this season. There are plenty of Staley men who are willing to take plenty of Taylorville money at odds on the score or even money on the possibility of Staley s scoring a touchdown. Champaign Here Sunday Capt. Wasem announced Tuesday night that the Staley team would probably play Champaign here Sun day. Champaign has a strong team of players, having defeated Areola in last Sunday's game 9-0. The Areola eleven defeated the Rantoul aviators the previous Sunday by a decisive score, so the game with Champaign the com ing Sunday will be the best which has been played on thelocal field. BOWLING SCORES In the first game of the Bowling league schedule on Hill's alleys Tuesday night, the Dubs took three straights from the Fords. Russell copped honors for the thigh Individual score, but J. Litz was the most consistent and mawe high individual average of 191. Staley's pin men will bowl the Hounds tonight. .

Can You Stand It? New York. Dr. Connor, formerly or jonns nopKlns hospital, says: Hundreds of thousands of men who smoke and chew and who believe themselves healthy are suffering irom progressive organic ailments. They would never have been afflicted had it not been for the use of tobacco and most of them would soon get well if they would only stop the use of tobacco. The beBt known habit forming principal of tobacco is nicotine, out the most deadly and demoralizing is furfural. Both are deadly poison, which, when absorbed by the system slowly, but surely, affect the nerves, membranes, tissues, vital organs and vitality of the body. The harmful effect of tobacco varies and depends on circumstances and toe individual. In some it causes general debility, others catarrh of the throat, indigestion, constipation, extreme nervousness, sleeplessness, loss of memory, lack of will power, cowardice and fear, mental confusion, etc.; in others it causes heart disease, bronchial troubles, hardening of the arteries, palpitation of the heart, tuberculosis, blindness, cancer and the common affliction known as tobacco heart. If you use tobacco In any form you easily detect its harmful effects by making the following simple tests: Read aloud a full page from a book. If your voice becomes muffled, hoarse and indistinct and you must frequently clear your throat, the chances are that your throat is affected by catarrh and it may be the beginning of very serious catarrhal trouble.

There was a well defined impression, however. that a reply to President Wilson would be outlined, at least if not fully drafted and adopted by the con ference as a whole.
