AMERICAN LEAGUE DIRECTORS TO MEET Wrangle Over Third Place Series Money Will Be Brought Before Magnates. NEW YORK. Nov. 18 A specal meet ing of the directors of the American League to consider the failure of the national commission to award third place world series money to the New Michigan Aggies. York Americans has been called to meet here at noon tomorrow by the majority directors. These are Jacob Ruppert of New York, Harry Frazee of Boston and Charles Comlskey, of Chicago. The Detroit club had protested against New York's third place posi tion, claiming that the games Carl Mays pitched not be counted. New York was officially awarded the place at a special meeting of the directors. who adopted a resolution authorizing the national commission to pay the Yankees and players their share of the world series money. Ruppert said that August Hermann chairman of the commission, formally acknowledged reeelpt of the resolu tion but made no comment upon it. Areola will invade Decatur next Sunday and meet the Staley football squad in what is expected to be the best game played on the local field this year. The eleven from Douglas county lias been displaying a good brand of football this year, having played six games and won five oi them. This team played Illiopolis Sunday and defeated them 27 to 0. Taylorville only defeated Illiopolis 33 to 0 and for this reason the locals are expecting about as good a game as they had with the Christian county squad. Most Change Signals. The Staley squad will also be at a big disadvantage Sunday owing to the fact that "Bun" Moran, who played with the locals in Taylorville' November 11, will be on the Areola team, and he knows all the signals and plays of the local machine. For this reason. Coach Brannan is changing the signals and plays of the Sialey tei-n for next Sunday's game, :nul this means a week of hard work for the men. Some new tricks and ui illations will be worked out and the team will gc into the game with the expectation of winning. With a man on the opposing team having an intimate knowledge of the strength and style of play of the Staley squad, the Arcolians will have quite an advantage over the locals, and they are taking full advantage of this opportunity by getting in a week of the hardest kind of practise. Besides strengthening their offensive and defensive playing, the Douglas county gridiron men are import ing two players from Champaign, and it is probable that one of these men will be the crack quarterback of the Champaign squad who played end with the Staley team against Taylorville. The other man will probably be Jacks, the Champaign fullback, who Is now coaching the Champaign High school squad and who formerly was a crack backfield man on the With the addition of two such men as these, and their regular players. Areola is Bure to give the locals a fight-Has Sprained Ankle. The Staley eleven is In fairly good condition and will play with the regular line-up with the possible exception of Veech. Veech had his ankle sprained in the game with Taylorville and has been unable to practise with the squad since then. He will be held out of the game Sunday unless It is absolutely necessary that I he be put in In case the Areola team proves too strong. " , LEGION MEN ROUT CINCINNATI REDS CINCINNATI, Nov. 18.

This conditior. had been gradually coming on me for eighteen years, and all this time I could barely drag myself arouna. I never had any appetite to speak oi and had the worst sort of nervous headaches nearly all the time. My sleep was badly disturbed by frightful dreams and I had terrible night-sweats nearly every night. I could hardly do any -work and would have to stop and He down and rest several times while trying to do the least bit of housework. I suffered with such pains in the small of my back I could not get up and down without its nearly killing me, and i would become so dizzy I had to be very careful to keep from falling. My stomach was so badly upset 1 would become dreadfully nauseated after each meal and I could rarely ever retain a thing I ate. Now, all this was , befoni I got completely down, and I gradually went from bad to wiorse until I had to take to my bed. as I told you before. "My husband did all he eould to find something that would help me. but everything I tried failed to du me a particle of good. At last some one advised him to get some Tanlac. He did so, and the very firs: night after I began taking it I res ?d better than I had in a long while and I coninued to improve. By tb time I had finished two bottles ' could sit up in bed and every or.-who paw me was astonished at nv improved condition. Well, I kprt akin it. and you see how well I ook now.
