"Bat" Nelson and "Uncle Joe" in Bout
WASHINGTON. Battling Nelson ,
ox-lightweight champion of the
world , and "Undo Joe" Cannon , who
s something of a scrapper himself ,
sparred a round in the speaker's pri
vate office recently. It wasn't such
a tame go at that , although largely
Nelson and his manager appeared
before the house committee on inter
state and foreign commerce to op
pose the bill introduced by Represen
tative Walter I. Smith of Iowa to pro
hibit the exhibition of moving pic
tures of prize fights and the publica
tion by newspapers of the details of
pugilistic encounters. After Nelson
had spoken his piece he left the com
mittee room and was hurrying down
the corridor toward the exit when
Representative Wagner of Pennsylva
nia came chasing after him.
"Hey , Nelson , " ho cried , "tho speak
er wants to see you. "
"You'ro on , " said Nelson , and he
made tracks for the speaker's office.
He got a warm greeting. TJnclo Joe
shook his hands , felt his biceps and
slapped him on the back. The exam
ination was returned with Interest.
"Say , " said Nelson to Mr. Cannon ,
as ho ran his hands over the speak
er's arms and shoulders nnd sized up
his height , "I thought you were a big
man , but you're only a little fellow. "
Some of the group surrounding the
two Informed the lighter that the
speaker took hla dally cxerciso nnd
always kept himself lit.
"I know he was there on the train

hands in approved style. Ho made a
few swift passes at the "Battler. "
"Philadelphia Jack O'Brien showed
me how to do this , " he said as Nelson
backed away laughingly.
"If you had begun boxing a few
years ago , Mr. Cannon , " said Nelson ,
"you would hnve made a bettor boxer
than a speaker and you certainly are
some speaker. "

"Geo , " said Nelson , "I'm much
obliged for your map , Mr. Cannon ;

in my life. "
"I'm happy , " replied Mr. Cannon ,
gravely , as he bit the end off a perfecto -

Stood High as a Third Class Fiddler
'T'HIS otory has been floating around
I the house In Washington. Nobody
offers to father It :
There was once n fiddler who was
very precise In his statements. He
wasn't much of a fiddler , and ho knew
It. It was not in his nature to claim
talent which ho did not possess. One
night there was n dance. The commit
tee couldn't get the regular music. So
they appealed to this fiddler. Ho said
he sure would play for them.
"Are you a first-class fiddler ? " they
"No , " ho admitted.
"Aro you a second-class llddler ? "
"Well , no , I'm not even a second-
class fiddler. "
"Well , for gracious sakes , what are
you , then ? Are you a llddler at all ? "
"I'm not a first-class fiddler , " said
the honest musician. "I'm not a sec
ond-class fiddler even. Hut I stand
darned high in the third class ! "
They took him on.
Walter Evans , correspondent of the
Kansas City Star , knows probably
more about Kansas politics than any
man alive. He thinks Kansas is ono
of the greatest states in the Union.
"Speaking of fiddling , " ho said , "I
knew four brothers once that wont to
Kansas and took up four adjacent
quarter sections. Each built a mud
house on a corner of each section , so
that their homes were close together.
Then they proceeded to plant all four
sections with wheat. They didn't get
n grain that year , because of the
"They were up against It hard when
winter came. So two of the brothers
went to Mexico and worked In the
mines. The other two stayed behind.
the miners sent them rnbriey to llvo
on. Next spring the two brothers re
maining again sowed wheat. They
had a bumper crop , and the miners
came home. Wheat was 'way up
then , and the brothers made a barrel
of money. Now they own land In
Kansas till you can't rest. They don't
live in mud houses any more.
"Talk about fiddling ; one of these
brothers , even after the bumper crop ,
would rldo to a dance at night , play
till morning and then ride home and
go to work. Ho got a dollar and a half
for his playing. He didn't stand very
high in the third class , either. "
Longworth Disapproves of Imitations
Is chairman of the committee
which Is investigating the Merchant
Marine league of Cleveland , and the
foreign shipping trust , when Olcott ,
the regular chairman , is absent.
Longworth was In the chair recently
and James L. Uhl of New York was
the witness. Uhl was telling of nn at
tempt he had made to trace a certain
letter to Its source. He had to visit
foreign steamship agents. He gave
Imitations on the stand of how these
agents talked. Longworth's face be
gan to flush , because Longworth
doesn't like exhibitions of this sort.
"Oh , " Longworth murmured , "I
think we have had enough of that. "
The murmur was Iqud enough to
reach the witness.
"I'll apologize , " he said. "Hut when
I was n boy I had n faculty for giv
ing Imitations , and my father was
never able to break me of the habit"
Even Longworth smiled nt the
nalvette of this reply.
A member of congress stood-on tLj
steps of the house ofiico building nnd

wistful look In his eyes.

He went slowly , like a boy on the
first day of school.

Since the repeated victories In the
by-elections to fill congressional va
cancies Champ Clark has been the
recipient of a flood of congratulatory
letters nnd telegrams. The night the
news of the election of James S. Ha
vens was received Champ got the fol
lowing : "Congratulations. Democratic
victory on the way. Next year Speak
er president 1912. Hurrah for Champ
"I am quoting my old friend Tom
Heed In answering them , " said Clark.

ask If he would run for the presidency
that year :

By Rev. David James Burrcll , U. D.
What do we menu by nu honest
mnn ? Wo want tx definition to begin
with ; nnd let It ho as simple as pos
sible. An honest man In ono who
imys hla debts. Thnt covers the whole
ease. It will bo seen thnt this defi
nition , an simple apparently , Is < iulto
comprehensive , niui it cuts deeper
than wo think. For when the matter
ot life's assets nnd liabilities IB fully
cnnvnsBPtl , It will appear that It lane
no easy matter to live and die with
n clean balance sheet
The question nt the outset touches
our relations with God. Are wo
debtors to Uod ? Yes , by universal
consent. In the bill of particulars
there nro three items , to-wlt :
First : Creation. Is there any ono
who does not rejolco in the fact that
ho was made "but a llttlo lower than
ihe angels" and in the likeness of
'God ? Is it nothing to stand erect ,
sensible of n , dirino birthright nnd of
n divine Inheritance ? Is there no
occasion for gratitude in the fact that
I nm able to dream dreams and ECO
visions , and , as Kepler said , "think
God's thoughts after him ? " What
do we owe In return for these ? The
least possible recognition of God's
goodness , thus far , is in keeping our
selves on friendly terms with him.
The second Item in the bill of partic
ulars Is Providence. In God wo llvo
and move and have our being. Wo
slept in his arms last night , cared for
as tenderly us children In their moth
er's arms. lie feeds us , clothes us ,
and continually cares for us.
What shall we render unto him for
these loving kindnesses ? Do they lay
no obligation upon us ? The least
thnt wo can do Is to bend our knees
in thanksgiving. To the beggar who
stretches out his band saying : "I am
hungry , " you gave enough to buy himself -
self a breakfast and he says : "I
thank you. " Could he do less and
bear the semblance of a man ? What
then of the man who never prays ,
who takes God's gifts without n word
of recognition ? Is he an honest man ?
The third Hem in the bill of particu
lars Is divine grace. It matters not ,
KO far as the question nt issue is con
cerned , whether a man has accepted
the overtures of God's mercy or not ;
It still remains that provision has been
made for his deliverance from Bin.
You may not hnvo accepted Christ ,
my friend ; that does not affect the
fact that God gave his only begotten
Son to dlo in your behalf that you
might be saved from sin. Hero is an
Immeasurable obligation laid upon
every man. How shall wo pay it ?
The answer is in the words of the
familiar hymn : ' 'Here ' , Lord , I glvo
myself to thee , 'tis all that 1 can do. "
Would that wo might sing it , but once
with heart and understanding ! For it
contains the sum total of the phlloso
phy of duty ; that is , of what we ewe
It Is a startling fact that men arc so
prone to overlook their obligations to
God , for hero is the very root of hon
esty. "Will a man rob God ? " Shall
wo withhold from God that which Is
his honest due ? Nay , that is clearly
Impossible if ono would be an honest
But the question touches , secondly ,
our relations with our fellow men. For
no man livcth unto himself and no
man dielli unto himself. It would ap
pear that the angels were created one
by one ; but men nro of ono family ,
and "blood is thicker than water. "
We are mutually Interdependent , as
lenders and borrowers' and each is
bound , in honesty , to balance his ac
count with his fellowmcn.
I am debtor to society ; that is , to
my fellow men en masse. The liber
ties , Immunities and sanctities of my
daily life come to rne through the uo
cial organism ; and , BO far forth , 1 air
a debtor to the community in whlcl
I live. How shall 1 meet that obli
gatlon ? To state it as briefly as pea
siblc , I am bound to put more into the
common exchequer that I draw ou
There arc two kinds of people , con
Burners and producers. The consumer
says : "Tho world owes mo a living , '
and proceeds to exact it. An idler
rich or poor , living in pursuance of
that dictum , is a dishonest man. The
producer , on the other hand , is ono
who adds to the common fund by ma
king something. He earns n livelihood ,
and something more. And when ho
makes his exit , he leaves the communi
ty richer from his having lived in it.
What are you producing , my friend ?
Make something , 1 pray you. Hake
a plow or a poem , inako a house era
a history , dig a well or build a stable ;
produce something that will remain as
your memorial , leaving the balance on
the right eide when you hnve gone

16 YEARS OF SKINI DISEASE
"For sixteen long years I have been
suffering with n bad case of skin dis
ease. While a child thcro broke out n
red sore on the legs just In back of
my knees. It waxed from bad to worse ,
and at last I saw I had n bad skin
disease. I tried many widely known
doctors In different cities but to no
satisfactory result. The plague both
ered roe more In warm weather than
in winter and being on my leg joints
it made it impossible for me to walk ,
nnd I was forced to stay Indoors in the
warmest weather. My hopes of recov
ery wcro by this time spent. Sleepless
nights'and restless days made llfo nn
unbearable burden. At last I waa
advised to try the Cutlcurn remedies
[ Gutlcura Soap , Ointment and Pills ]
and I did not need more than n trial
to convince mo that I was on the road
of success this time. I bought two
sets of the Cutlcurn Remedies nnd
after these wore gone I was n differ
ent man entirely. I am now the hap
piest man that thcro is nt least ono
