While the teams are in the second divi

the race between these three teams is very
For one brief and enjoyable few hours
the Browns crawled, over, the back of the
Siwashes, but the Indians would not be
denied, and when Los Angeles came to
their town they proceeded to take the Loo
Loos into camp, Just as did the Browns.
Lohman, of course, will not lose the series
to the Siwashes; not if Pete can help
himself. And if Portland can keep the
Senators from duplicating their former
victorious visit here, they win sianu a
show of getting out of the cellar.
All the talk about that $1000 fine and the
blacklistlne which the Pacific National
League threatened to inflict on all play
ers in the Pacific Coast League after
May 15 seems to have been Just what The
Oregonian predicted it was at the time
froth for Hannlvan and Ziegler, two for-
mpr nlavers on Parke Wilson s team,
have found berths with Pacific National
League teams. Hannlvan is playing with
Tacoma, and Ziegler is with Helena. This
does not speak well for that "nomDie"
punlshment which the National people
were going to hand out to all players who
dared to play in the Coast League.
Kostal and Engle have found jobs with
the Roseburg team, and both have won

equally as fast as, that furnished during

Fisher's "Tads" will arrive this morning,
with the exception of Doyle, who
made a mistake when he Joined issues
with the ground-keeper at San Francisco.
Doyle -will be with the team, but, if stor

It was Claud Schmeer who was presented
with his release. Schmeer's knee went
back on him during the first Los Angeles
series, and since then he hasnotbeen able
to get back into the game. Schmeer, when
he Is Jit himself, Is one of the best short
stops in the business, and but for the mis
forttmo to his knee, he would have been
the ranking shortstop of the league.
Schmeer tried hard to get into condition.
but the Injury was such that only time
could cure it. Some timo ago, when he
found that it would be many weeks, per
haps a couple of months, before he could
nlay. he requested the management to
give him a month's rest without salary,
and then at the expiration of a month.
if he could not play, he was to be re
leased at his own request. Schmeer went
into the game on Saturday. His heart
was all right, but his knee was still too
weak to stand the strain of fast foot
work, and he gave up trying to play.
The injury, which started from a sprain.
has threatened to develop Into "water on
the knee," and, in spite of care, has no
"yielded to treatment. Schmeer's home is
in Portland, and he will perhaps go into
business for himself. He has had several
offers to Join teams flaying- in the near

time to resting his knee.

BAD DAY FOR BLACK BASS.
Sunday Fishermen Catch, Fevr Fish
in the Slough.
The majority of the largo number of
persons wno went nsmng ior oass on
Sunday did not find it a very favorable
day. Many say they did not get a blto
from a fish, but plenty from mosquitoes
The fortunate ones are entitled to first
place. Frank N. Scott a youngster who
lives near Columbia Slough, below tne
Vancouver railway, caught 18, mostly of
fair size, but It Is said that by much
practice he has acquired some ways of
luring and catching bas3 which are hot
generally known. Dr. E. Dow. Connell
went down to Guild's Lake, and between
10 A. M. and 4 P..M. caught 15 bass, us
ing fish worms for bait Beal brothers
made aflne catch of bass at their game
preserve, bagging 42 in all, quite a num
ber of them weighing four to five pounds.
One whose religious proclivities pre
vent him from fishing on Sunday took
a trip out to the slough on that day to
see how many fishermen were there and
what they were doing.
He met a barber who had often reaped
the stubble on his chin, just beyond
Woodlawn, on his way home, lugging
a string of four dozen catfish, bathed in
perspiration and covered with glory and

half a dozen sloughs where there should

"green bass," and not the black bass,
They are certainly more green than
black, but some say when they get into
swift water up the stream where the
water is overshadowed by trees, they
turn darker In color, and maintain that
they are without doubt the "big-mouthed

very gamey, and splendid eating.
-SIUMttOCK'S RATTLING PACE.
Challenger Sails Over Cup Course in
ATLANTIC HIGHLANDS, N. J., July
20. Ten miles an hour for 30 miles, wind
ward and leeward, was the rattling pace
set by Sir Thomas Llpton's cup-challenger
in & race with Shamrock I In the waters
of the international race-course off Sandy
Hook lightship today. The challenger
exact time for 30 miles was 2:59:20, very
nearly record time for a cup event and
on a par with the Reliance's splendid per
formance off Newport in June, when the
American yacht covered SO niiles In less
than three hours.
Shamrock Hi's windward leg today was,
however, not a beat to windward. A shift
in the wind at the start made it possible
for her to fetch from the starting line to
within two miles of the turn quicker time
than if she had to beat all the way. Her
reach of 15 miles In 1 hour, 9 minutes and
8 seconds, an average pace of rising 13
miles, is near the record for a cup race.
Despite her splendid performance -she
beat Shamrock I by only one minute 22
seconds elapsed time, but the new boat
had lost at least two minutes by tho part
ing of her jib topsail sheet when she was
four miles from the finish line. The race
was sailed in a splendid wind rising from
10 knots at the start to 15 at the finish,
and a good part of the time the yachts
wero dragging their lee rails through the
froth from under their bows.
The yachts were preparing for another
brush when Sir Thomas received notice
from the Associated Press by De Forest
wireless that the pope was dead. Sir
Thomas immediately stopped the racing,

Tragedy of the Woods.
Cottage Grove Nugget
Last week a tragedy of tho woods was
witnessed by Foster Phillips and Silas
Gibbs, who were fishing above the Phillips .
homstead cabin on Mosby creeic The boys
had gona.up the etream and were fishing
Mown, when they heard the bleat or a.
deer. Turning around they discovered a
big buck In the water a short distance
uo the creek, with a Huge gray umoer
wolf standing guard and watching his
chance to kill the deer. The boys were
lthout guns of any description, and.
therefore, were no protection to the deer.
Whenever the deer would" attempt to get
to the shore the wolf would head him oft
and make him take to dsep water again.
This was kept up for some time, when the
deer was taken at a disadvantage and
killed In an instant. The boys state that
tho wolf was a monster, and when they
made efforts to drive him away from the
deer he stood his ground and acted as
though he would just as soon add a man
or two to his dinner as not. The boys
made up their mind that they didn't care
for venison anyway and contented them
selves with taking a few more trout.

WHISTLER'S LAST WORK.
He Painted Portrait of Canfleld, the
Gambler, as "His Reverence.'
NEW TORK. July 20. Probably the
last portrait completed by the late James
McNeill Whistler was named "His Rev
erence" by the artist. The original is
Richard A. Canfleld. of this city, the
well-known sporting man.
Whistler gave Canfleld the last sitting
on the afternoon of May 15, in the study
of his London residence, and the portrait
was finished some time last month. It is
supposed to be resting now on the easel
on which it .was painted. Canfleld is In
Saratoga. A dispatch from that city
quotes him as saying of the painter,

"I see there Is some speculation there

he had a weak heart In Holland last

Charles L. Freer, of Detroit, who has,
by the way, the finest and most com

the world. Whistler gave me my first
sitting for the portrait In the Spring of
1902, just after he closed his studio in
Paris and returned to London. He gave
me several sittings, and then, as I had

Its Reel Significance A Feature
of the W. O. W. Carnival That
Should Not Be Disregarded by
Anyone Who Is Without a Piano.
Of nine makes of fine pianos, one make
of each of which contains an ax, to denote
a cut of $25 to the luck' buyers, only four
remain. Contest open to everybody.
Early In the season when it was decided
to hold the grand Woodmen's Carnival at
thl3 time, Etlers Piano House began prep
aration for the occasion by ordering a
large number bf fine pianos. It was our
Idea to have a beautiful Carnival exhibit,
as fine, or liner than we have had during
tho years gone by, whero our display has
invariably carried oft the highest honors,
receiving all the high prizes and diplomas
for the quality of the Instruments and va
riety of exhibit. The Carnival, however,
being so close to our store, we decided to
hold our exhibit here, and the amount that
we would have spent In the Woodmen Car- 1
nival for advertising, the erection of a
booth, etc., etc, we are giving our cus
tomers. It is our desire to have this ex
hibit as closely Identified with the Carni
val as if it were actually within the
grounds, hence the "Woodmen's emblem,
the ax, in nine pianos which signifies the
payment of J25 to the first purchaser se
lecting an instrument from any one of tho
ONLY FOUR LEFT
The popularity of our pianos and the
confidence of the people in our statement
has been again demonstrated by the im
mense success of this W. O. W. contest.
In setting aside nine lines on which to
make the cut of $25, we felt safe In calcu
lating this number of prize pianos would
be sufficient But with the Carnival
scarcely half over we now have only four
of tne pianos with the axes in tnem re
maining. This gives the next purchaser
cuances out of 26. the next one 6
chances out of 26, the next 2 chances out
of 26. the final one a single chance of the
26 to secure S25 off the price of a fine
As the Indications aro very slim for
these pianos holding out more than a day
or two longer, and as this contest has
been so very successful we feel we can

W. Carnival may be as full of Interest
and attractive to visitors as the first we

DR. W. NORTON DAVIS
The tendency of men to neglect
minor ailments is responsible for
many a blighted life. Happiness and
safety demand that skilled medical
ald"be sought upon tho first mani
festation of weakness or other dis
order In men. Neglect means the
oncoming aggravated condition that
will In time involve the general con
stitution. During our 21 years as
specialists In men's diseases we
have met with every possible com
plication of private ailments. Our
success in effecting permanent cures
has never been approached. We
have acquired the understanding

any tonic system of treatment that

This is a scientific truth that we
have discovered, after careful study
and observation in hundreds of
cases, and is a truth upon which
our own original system of treat
ment Is based. We employ neither
tonics, stimulants nor electric belts.
We treat chiefly by local methods,
and our success In curing even
those cases where others havo

The importance of quickly curing
contracted disorders is being more
fully recognized among the medical
profession. The tendency of theso
diseases Is gradually to extend
backward, involving in a chronic
inflammation the most vital centers
of the organic system. The serious
results that may follow can scarcely
be exaggerated. Safety demands
an absolute, thorough cure In the
least possible time. Wo have
treated more cases of contracted
disorders than any other physician
or institute in the Northwest Our
cures are thorough, and aro ac
complished in less time than other
forms of treatment require in pro

employ remedies of our own devis

Our treatment Is painless, harm
less and prompt in curing. The
patient need not be detained from
his occupation a single day.
In our treatment for this disease
mild and harmless methods have
again triumphed over surgery. We
cure without pain and without cut
ting or dilating. The obstructive
tissue is dissolved, and till affected
membranes thoroughly cleansed and
restored to a healthy state.
Specific Blood Poison
Others dose the system with min
eral poisons scarcely less danger

best they hope to do by this treat
ment Is to keep the disease from
manifesting its presence upon the
surface of the body. Under our
treatment the entire system Is
cleansed. The last taint of virus
is destroyed. We employ blood-
cleansing remedies heretofore un
known in the treatment of thl3 dis

and absolutely destroying the poison
in the system. Such cures cannot
