Hammond Lake County Times (Newspaper) - January 7, 1913, Hammond, Indiana THE TIMES. SPORTS IS FAVORITE FOR CROSS BATT Twenty times good! The pleasure contained in this package of Fatimas has made it the greatest selling cigarette in the country. The pleasure of absolutely pure tobacco. Distinctively Individual” Mexican Is Down to 134 For His Clash With Master of Ten Round Game New York. Jan. 7.—Joe Rivers, the latest addition to our pugilistic ranks, spent a busy afternoon at his training quarters between training and greeting a host of newly-made friends who took advantage of the holiday to see the Mexican In action. Rivers went through the daily stunt of rope Jumping, punching bag and when everything was cleared off the decks started in a four round melee with Tackey Hommey. Packey is not one of our greatest battlers as far as science goes. He is there with the wallop and delights in getting slammed. For twelve minutes the pair of lightweights buffeted one another around with neither overlooking an opportunity to slam. The visitor showed up to great advantage. He worked faster than ever, showing that miserable weather did not bother him so that you would notice it. His wallops were straight and plenty and most of them hit the mark. Rivers convinced the fans that he will give Leach Cross a strenuous time and there is no doubt he wll lenter the ring a hot favorite. He is now down to 134 pounds and says he could get down to the required poundage, 133, any time he desires. Joe has developed a slight fondness for Broadway and hates to leave the bright lights in his wake. His training quarters form a strong contrast to the white way. Woodlawn Inn. where he is quartered, is only a few steps away from the entrance to Woodlawn cemetery. Rivers is not stuck on the close proximity of dead ones. A more lonesome or desolate place after sundown could not be found. Cross started In work today at Lake wood, where he gets In shape for all important battles. Leach is a master at the ten-round game and figures his knowledge of the short bout will prove of inestimable advantage. nm n uke ll IEI lUS' to CMY RE-ENTERS RING OU UC OUR SEMI ANNUAL GLOVE CLEARANCE COMMENCES DOUBLE STAMP DAY.

Roger Bresnahan is now a Cub. This 0f was announced officially yesterday aft-I want”to wager ernoon by President Murphy and Manager Evers of the west side club. Evers arrived in the morning, and after completing plans for the spring training trip of the Cubs he and Pres- J ldent Murphy called up St. Louis and ; had Roger Bresnahan paged. The for- * mer manager of the Cardinals soon responded abd announced that he had come to a settlement with the St. Louis club, had the money In the bank, and was ready to accept the terms recently i offered him by the Chicago club. What these terms were was not glv- ! en out for publication, but President Murphy wished it said that he had outbid Barney Dreyfuss. the Pittsburg owner, who paid $22,500 for Marty O’Toole, the largest sum ever paid for a ball player. That doesn’t mean that Murphy paid more than that to get Roger. It means that he offered Roger more money than did Dreyfuss. and also more than Herrmann of Cincinnati. It was only another case of money talking. 25 Dozen Children's 2-Clasp White Kid Gloves that we have been featuring in recent sales at 95c a pair, your choice while they CQ/\ last, pair...

SAVANNAH GIVEN BIG JOJO RACES Vanderbilt and Grand Prix Events to Be Decided at Georgia Course. New York, Jan. 7.—Savannah. Ga., yesterday was awarded the next running of the Vanderbilt cup and grand There is more Catarrh In this section of the country than all other diseases put together, and until the last few years was supposed to be Incurable. For a great many years doctors pronounced It a local disease and prescribed local remedies, and by constantly failing to cure with local treatment, pronounced It incurable. Science has proven Catarrh to be a constitutional disease, and therefore requires constitutional treatment. Hall’s Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney & Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only Constitutional cure on the market. It is taken internally In doses from IO drops to a teaspoonful. It acts directly on the blood and mucous surfaces of the ays tem. They offer one hundred dollars for any case it fails to cure. Send for circulars and testimonials. Address F. J.

I, 1913, and Feb. 23. 1914. This announcement was made last night by Harvey Granger, representative of the Savannah Automobile club, who, with a committee of five other Georgians conferred yesterday afternoon with the Motor Cups Holding company. Granger said the committee was cordially received by the contest board, and that both races were awarded Savannah without stipulation or opposition. So far as he knew, Granger ndded there was no other applications for them. Granger said the Savannah course would be shortened to about ten miles, and that on the days of the races it would be policed by Georgia state militiamen in order to prevent accidents to spectators. According to Granger, the course now is in such condition that the contests could be held within forty-eight hours. Granger also stated that the Automobile Club of America and the Savannah club would start to work immediately to try to secure entries of foreign cars. P. I. TO MEET FARREII TODAY Chance Due Here for Conference With Owner of Yankees. Chance Is due to reach Chicago from California at 11:40 a. rn., and Frank Farrell, owner of the New York club, is due at noon. It Is probable they will get together early in the afternoon, and many believe the papers will be signed within an hour after the two meet. A number of Chance’s friends, headed by Charley Williams, secretary of the Cubs, are going out to Joliet to meet the California train and escort the P. L. into town. Still others are planning to be at the Polk street station to welcome the former west side leader. According to reports Chance will be offered the biggest salary ever paid a baseball manager. Although Owner Farrell never has made public the amount he will offer, it is understood It is to be $18,000 per year with 5 per cent of the net profits added. The biggest salary ever paid Chance by the Chicago club in the seven years he was manager was $10,000, and that was only for the last three years. Chance won four pennants and two world’s championships in seven years on the west side, and then was released last fall by President Murphy. Before sundown tonight Frank Chance, Peerless Leader, formerly with the Cubs, is likely to be signed to a contract to manage the New York American league team for the next five TM TI. NEW GOLE LINKS IS FORAMEN ONLY Organization Formed as Old Elm Club Has Site on North Shore. the formation of the Winnetka Country club comes the announcement of the formation of the Old Elm club, whose grounds will be located 400 yards east of the railroad station and Chicago electric station on the Green Bay road at Fort Sheridan. The new organization is something of a novelty in that it is to be a golf club for men only. Women players and juniors may be invited for special occasions, but essentially the club wlll be a place where the sustaining golfers can enjoy themselves and be sure of getting a game at all times without much waiting. The club Is in no sense a competitor of any other organization, and while the majority of the 150 members will have other affiliations, these, it is expected, will toe continued. Many of the members will use their other courses for daily play, but during busy periods they will be able to play at Old Elm. The club has purchased 140 acres located on the famous ridge sloping to the west, and 80 per cent of the land overlooks the Skokie valley. Only a little of the Skokie marsh is on the property and this will be used for a short water hole and for landscape purposes.    I TIMES WANT ADS SERVICE—TO YOU? ARE FOR lf you contemplate building or es-^ tablishing a dairy farm along the north shore, you had better hurry up or the j golf clubs will get you. Links in that section are getting almost as common as burglaries in the city. Following
