Wini Fiercest Battle of His Life in Fifteen

Govern and Corbett Kelt.
LOUISVILLE. Feb. 22. Terry McOorern
defeated Pare Sullivan tonight in the arena
fi the Southern Athletic club after fifteen
rounds of it deiperata fighting as waa ever
ieen In any ring. From the first tap of ths
'gong; to the end It waa slam bang, ham
mer and tongs, nearly every second, both
men working away with all the energy they
poeseased. There ha seldom been seen
battle where the Issue waa more In doubt.
'In one round it would be Sullivan and in
Ah next tt would be McOovern. Then Sul
livan would come strong again and even
thing up once more.
McOovern, knowing that the fight meant
tils position In the front rank as a fighter,
.waa after hi man every second. In the
majority of the rounds he was on the ag
gressive and Sullivan waa forced to do far
more defensive work 'than hi opponent.
Me put up a wonderful tight, however, was
tam to the core and lost the fight more
through a blunder of his own than because
he was knocked out.
Groggy at the Last.
When the finish came, however, he was
groggy and going fast. The chance are
that h would not have lasted many more
rounds even had he risen to hi feet be
fore FItzslmmon called ten.
In the fifth round Sullivan was at his
best. He forced the fighting, especially
In the last half, and had McOovern plainly
going. The latter walked in a very un
steady fashion aa he went to hi corner
and nothing but bis splendid recuperative
power enabled him to come out In shape for
the sixth round. He came out atrong,
however, and although there were times
when Sullivan seemed about to' turn the
tide hi way again, from that time on. Mc
Oovern kept steadily, but slowly, gaining.
He fought hard, and Sullivan was grad
ually, but surely, going backward. Sulli
van was badly punished, his left ear be
ing split open, hia llpa cracked, his ncae
bruised and hi left eye damaged.
MeGovera Sever Lets I'p.
During the twelfth, thirteenth and four
teenth rounds Sullivan was slowi.T going.
McOovern was at him like a wildcat every
Instant, He gave him no rest, and Sullivan
was. when possible, hanging on for life.
'The end came when the fifteenth round
was nearly over. McOovern had forced
Sullivan Into a neutral corner. He landed
ft storm of right and left swings, and
catching Sullivan with the left square on
the law, sent him down on hi back. Sul
livan wa up like a flash, but did not rise
from bis knees. He was confused, groggy
and nearly out. Fltrsimmona counted nine
and as ha uttered the last word Sullivan
started to rise, but did not get higher than
low crouch. The instant hi knee wis
off the floor McOovern came after him and
Sullivan, hardly knowing what he was about,
went down again.
The referee promptly declared him out
ad McOovern the vlc'tor.
Sullivan attempted to quastion the de
cision, but Fitsslmmons would not listen
to him.

Discussing the light Fitsslmmons said:
Sullivan wa down more than ten second
before he tried to rise. He wa on his
Knees fully five seconds, before I began
to count and had he atood up when I said

maidenhood and manhood has a very close
relation to the family. When he comes in
ball tbe suffering1 seems over, halt tne dan

night and day and after year of such
service confidence in him is almost un

mere temporary trouble that will wear off.
In treating every case from whooping
congh to diphtheria and typhoid fever th
average physician has no time to specialize
any one class of diseases hs has no oppor
tunity to make a study of the particular
maladies of women. And he has another
disadvantage in that thousands of modest
women will not tell the details of this kind
of sickness to a doctor. But Wins of Cardui
is a family physician, a specialist of female
diseases that has never been -discredited as
a regulator of menstrual disorder. It sel
dom fails to effect a perfect cure and when
case are absolutely incurable, it never fails
to benefit the patient.
Mr. Theodora Fuller, of Neensh, Wis.,
is one of th thousands of women who have
cause to praise Win of Cardui. She is one
of the prominent women of her town and
her letter cannot fail to attract ths atten
tion of thousands of sufferers. As Presi-

"Three yean age I suffered with inflam
matioa of the womb caused by catching
a bad cold during menstruation. I had vio
lent pains la the lower part oi th abdomen,
also along the spiral column, and frequent
headaches. At times my menses would
stop altorcther and then .suddenly I would
flow without ceasing.
M I consulted my family physician and he
prescribed for me, but I got no relief. Read
ing aa advertisement in ths paper of what
McElrec's Wine of Cardui could do for such
a case I decided to try it and took it faith
fully for three weeks, when to my relief and
delight I found myself entirely cured and my
general health much Improved.'
To cure a woman suffering like Mrs.
Fuller suffered, in three weeks, is truly a
great thing fur any medicine, but with
Wins of Cardui this very thing it occurring
everyday. Thesiiryof Wine of Cardui
is an bid one but it is coming home with
renewed force to thousands of women,
