Leu’a Browns and the Tulsa Produc-

Was Called on Account
Sherman nnd Tulsa battled for fif-
teen tunings yesterday and at the end
of the time Umpire Roth ctlled the
game on account of darkness with the
score standing 3 and 2. It was a bat-
tle royal from start, to finish and had
all tile thrills and chunges that go to
make up a good hall game. Klontz
tolled on the mound for eight and a
third Inings for the Producers and
just before Patterson tied the count
for Sherman was jerked for Poison.
Higginbotham worked all fifteen in-
nings for the locals.
Klontz had the best of the nrgu-
meut from Hie first nnd let the Browns
down with three liils, while Poison,
who relieved him, allowed four. Roth
runs were scored off Klontz, however.
Tulsa gleaned n total of thirteen
safeties. These were scattered, how-
ever, and with good support Higgin-
botham | ml led out of a number of had
looking holes. Both teams played good
The Producers .counted first in (lie

Higginbotham tied tip the game for

ricked just after Patterson stole.
In the fourteenth Higginbotham
startl'd out to win his game with a
scorching drive to right. He was re-
tired, however, attempting to stretch
the hit to a triple.

For Itching Scalp
You do not want a slow treatment
for itching scalp when hair is falling
and the dandruff germ is killing the
hair roots. Delay means—no hair,
it Get, at any drug store, a bottle of
jtemo for 25c or $1.00 for extra large
size. Use as directed, for it does the
work quickly. It kills the dandruff
germ, nourishes the hair roots and im-
, mediately stops itching scalp, It is
a pure, reliable, antiseptic liquid, is not
greasy, is easy to use and will not stain.
Soaps and shampoos are harmful, as
they contain alkali. The best thing to
use for scalp irritations is zemo, for it
is safe and atso inexpensive.

Papers were signed last night by

A, I). Green, writing to the Sport-
ing News from Fort Worth, lias the
following to say of three players sent
hack to tills circuit by that team and
is of esjiocial Interest to the fans of
Fort Smith and Van Buren as two of
them are Twins; “To get within the
TexilL league player limit. Business
Manager La Grave of the Panthers has
sent Thompson and Countryman to
MeAlester of the Western Association,
and Ada ms has been .returned to Fort
Smith of the same league. Adams and
Thompson, the two recruits sent back
for further seasoning,, are both flasl#
fie lders but neither showed a tenden-
cy to bit anywhere near the Texas
league standard. . Several games tlmt
have gone into the lost column would
have Imsmi won had a Hit been forth-
coming from either. There is no
doubt that Adams would have made
good, had lie been off to a good
start; but things broke badly for him
in his hitting and It became so that
It was really pitiful* to see his futile
efforts at meeting the ball. Country-
man's sale to MeAlester comes as a
surprise. The Houston boy pitched
the- few starts Ik
*n*de. He was not given the opisirtu
ntiy of iK-ginnlug a game, but be fin-
ished several after some other hurler

When Bc4> Dowie was turned back
by Chattanooga lie liecame the prop-
erty of tbe local baseball dull. But
E. M. Innicnn and Manager. Murray,
ufter wilt tiling "Chief New u si it* and
"Mike" Watson perform, couldn't see
Boli. All of Which elicited consider-
able surprise for the fans. But to
these few brave martyrs who faced
the cutting wind ami drizzling rain to
olteeive yesterday afternoon's pastime
there suddenly came a light. While
the youthful Alike was hack of the
platter, catching a great gnme, getting
seven putouts and six assists, scoring
four runs and getting five lilts out
of five times to the (date. one of
them a home run, ami totaling ten
bases, Dowie was catching the same
game which he displayed for Hie Ok
tehonia City fans for three years,
good receiver and thrower, and that's
all. itowie isn't a hitter. There is no
getting away from that. Although he
•went great for Tulsa for u few days
and slammed the Hull ail over the lot.
ho is now dropping hack to his natural
strata of mediocrity, where iie will
doubtless always remain. On the oth-
er hand, Watson is hitting 1 letter ev-
ery day. His iiert.irmance today
boosted liis mark front .429 to .441.
nnd his clean, healthy swipe at the
hall and almost faultless hutting style
gives assurance that he will continue
to Is* a terror to the opi>osiiig pitchers.
And while Watson, grubbing his
ehuneo when “Chief Newashe was
Injured, is going at such a speetacu-
lar pace, Newashe Is Inking Ills time
and allowing his Injured knee to mend
fully before entering the game, there
being no occasion for u rush with the
remarkable performance of “Mike."
With Newnshe am) Watson in the
game, Murray's catching staff will
not. Is* forced to how to any In the
league during the season. Dowie
might have been a gk-eat favorite by
Ids reoctvtnif and throwing ability, but
catcher Hint combines nil of these
with the slugging ability of Wfttsou Is
just that much ahead.—Dally Okla-
Evidently the Oklahoman sport
writer thinks Col. liunean has THE

Z.ack" Wheat Is the first of the
hall players who has made a dent In
tlie high cost of living by hitting the
bull, Ailer all absence of three years
the big Bull advertising signs have
made (heir appearance In most of the
parks where organized baseball is
played, hut In (lie Western association
there are only one at tlio
.Stadium and two others. As there
is a prize of $50 cash to any player
hitting the sign with a fairly halted
fly hall in a championship game, there
lias been a great interest displayed by
the visiting players and a desire that
more of the games be played in Fort
Smith. The Baris hunch was the first
lo visit here after the sign was put
up and to a man tHey asked for full
particulars of. the manner in which
they could increase their batik ac-
counts. That Is one of the reasons
that alt of the players are trying to
hit the hall between Hyder Barr and
Chief Robison ami over their heads.
Zack Wheat, the Indian outfielder of
the Brooklyn Dodgers, is the first to
have lilt the Bull, having performed
that feat at Philadelphia on April
20. The presentation of the checks

The fan tlmt Is missing (he games

hall playing ever seen on the local lot
and Hie fact tlmt Tulsa and Sherman

In fuel, these teams are among the two
best teams in the circuit and future
events will show, unless the race re-
mains in Its present close condition
through the whole season. There is
less than seven games difference be-
tween tlu* leaders and the tail emlers

With a friend occasionally for the fun
of Ihe tiling and not for profit: "If
the game has gotten to lie a gambling
proiamitlon, with the directors of the
team cutting it for big iiets, the club
might as well disband, as Fort Smith
does not intend supporting such a dis-
graceful affair.” It is now up to Pres-
ident Bell at Paris, to make the full-
est investigation of the matter nnd
act accordingly. So far us Devereaux
is concerned he ought to be susiiended
for tlie rest of the year and the other
Muskogee players who were guilty In
Tuesday’s affair should tie severely

affulr ever seen in this city.—Fort

A message from President J. W.
Bell of (lie Western association ad-
vises that Pat Devereaux, first bats-
man of tlie Muskogee dull, lias been
fined $5ft and indefinitely sas|ieuded
for his brutal assault upon Umpire
Ilcaley at .Muskogee Tuesday, an indi-
cation tlmt President Bell as they
should lie dealt with. Devereaux's as-
sault upon Healey, who is a much
smaller maii physically, was one of
tlie Western Association's blgcy eye*,
and the president cannot be too harsh
in his dealings With the assailant. It is
generally acknowledged among thu
D leagues that It 1* necessary to eoun-
tenuni e such action, on account of the
salary and player limit, to overlook
actions of that character altogether
or pass them bjt.with a fine and no
suspension. But President Bell's ac-
tion is sufficient evidence tlmt tha
Western association will break some
rules, and refuse to. tolerate rowdyism
of a violent character from the player,
regardless of Ids value for Hie league
or the club. Tlie value of President
Bell's dealing now lies with the
.Muskogee .club, Devereaux’s employers.
If they dig down into the club treas-
ury and produce the fine for the
player, the lesson wilt lose It value
nnd only encourage further assaults
or rowdyism. If they allow Devereaux
to pay his own fine and lift hlmsett
out of tite plight, tlie value of the
proxy's ruling will lie full. There is
no room for rowdyism iu the big
leagues and tlie club owners, fang or
league officials refuse to countenance
it. If the big leagues can find no room
for roughneck tactics on the diamond,
there remains little ground for the
D’s to permit it. President Beil has
started the sentiment in the right di-
rection; It’s now up to Hie oli'il.. owners
and managers to snpph the league
with the chins of baseball that otket)
