Down at Eugene thU afternoon
.'will be played the official opening
fame of the Willamette Valley
league season. Not the second
half the first half. What. Isn't It
the closine game? Yea. It's the
closing game too.
Yes. but look at the schedule
First Sunday. April 15. Eugene
ts. Bend at Eugene. They hare
' finally gotten around to playing
It, nearly three months late.
Half as many potentialities are
bound up in this game as there
were in the whole league season
three months ago. If Bend wins.
and it is of course the favorite,
then Bend takes the first half
But if Bend loses, then it may
be tied with Salem or Albany or
both, depending on whether they
win from the tail end clubs. If a
tie results, some way of settling It
may be decided upon at tonight's
league meeting at Eugene, and
then again it may be left that
way, to be ironed out at the end
of the second half.
Manager "Frisco" Edwards of
the Senators thinks Bend will win
and Eettle the matter, but the local
boye are not passing up any
chances to finish the season at
the top. Neither are they going
to Wendling with any expectations
of haring an easy time. Albany
lost at Wendling. Eugene barely
nosed out a victory by one run in
the ninth inning, and Bend was
held to a close score.
Especially with Coates in the
box, Wendling is a formidable
team on its home diamond.
The Senators will start the
game with the same lineup that
started against Bend last Sunday.
The probable lineups are:

have an oft day Sunday.
Martin la a husky youth who
has been hitting hard and often,
while Ricks also seems capable at

Eugene's fielding and hitting
strength has been added te since
the last home game. Les Johnson,
one of the leading hitters on the

at least this is probably due to
the state garfe commission's pres
ent Doliey of liberating fish of
from fire to eight inches in length,
The reaeon is that the percentage
of loss among the smaller fry
nlanted in previous years was
found to be exceedingly high after
the fish were in the stream.
The present system does not al

successfully shift for themselves

hatchery to the stream.
The improved methods used in
liberating fish brings to mind the
early experiences of local sports
men In attempting to secure im
proved fishing conditions.
According to some- of the older
club members several shipments
of "fry" were secured from the

than half his "calls" were on
women, children and babies. They
are the ones most often sick. But
their illnesses were usually ot a
minor nature colds, fevers, head
aches, biliousness and all of
them required first a thorough
evacuation. They were constipat
ed. In the course ot Dr. Caldwell's
47 years' practice (he was grad
uated from Rush Medical College
back in 1875), he found a good
deal of success In such cases with
a prescription . of his own con
taining simple laxative herbs with
pepsin. In 1892 he decided to
use this formula, in the manufac
ture of a medicine to be known as
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, and
in that year his prescription was
first placed on the market. '
The preparation immediately
had as great a success in the drug
stores as it previously had in Dr.
Caldwell's private practice. Now,
the third generation is using it.
Mothers are giving it to their
children who were- given it by their
momers. Kvery second of - the

is going into a drug store to buy

merit, on repeated buying, on one
