The Only La::ative
Uocd by Those VJho Know
People never esa harsh phytic after
they know what it does.
That griping nnd pain are symptoms
that the bowels are Irritated.
Vou have come to think, perhaps, that
Buth effects are necessary, els you
would never endure them.'
But they are not; they are wicked.
That irritation of the stomach is the
cause of nearly all dyspepsia.
That Irritation of the bowels causing
the lining to callous is the cause
of constipation.
CAscarets bring the same results with
out injury.
They never gripe never pain. They
are as harmless as laxative foods.
Salts and pill cathartics Increase the
trouble that you seek to cure.

the Load
A moving van came rolling down Jackson boulevard the other
day with a big spirited Perchcron in the center and two wretched
nags on either side. The Percheron was doing all the work and it
seemed that he wonfd have got along far better in single harness
than he managed with his inferior rnates retarding his speed.
The advertiser who selects a group of newspapers usually har
nesses two lame propositions to every pulling newspaper on his
list, and just as the van driver probably delt out an equal portion
of feed to each of his animals, just so many' a merchant is paying
practically the same rate to a weak daily that he is allowing the
f trictly profitable sheet.
Unfortunately the accepted custom of inserting the same ad
vertisement in every paper acta to the distinct disadvantage of the
meritorious medium. The advertiser charges the sum total of his
expense against the sum total of his returns, and thereby does him
fcelf and the best puller an injustice by crediting the less produc
tive sheet with results that they have not earned.
It is the pulling power of the newspaper as well as the horse
that proves its valce, and if advertisers were as level headed a.?
they should be, they would take the trouble to put every daily in
which they advertise on trial for at least a month and advertise a
different department or article in each,' carefully tabulating the
returns. If this were done fifty per cent of the advertising now
carried in weaker newspapers would be withdrawn and the pat
ronage of the stronger sheets would advance in that proportion.
There are newspapers in the city of Chicago that are, single
handed, able to build up business. Their circulation is solid muscle
and sinew all pull It isn't the number of copies printed but the
number of copies that reach the hands of buyers it isn't the num
ber of readers with money to spend it isn't tHe bulk of a circu
lation but the amount of the circulation which is available to the
advertiser it isn 't fat but brawn, that tell in the long run.
There are certain earmarks that indicate these strengths and
weaknesses. They are as plain to the observing eye as the signs of
the woods are significant to the trapper. The news columns tell
you what you can expect out of the advertising columns. A news
paper always finds the class of readers to which it is edited. When
the mental tone is low and its moral tone is careless depend ujion
it the readers match the medium.
No pn can hit a target outside of its range.' No newspaper
can aim its ioliey'in one direction and score in another. No adver
tiser can find a different rlavs of men and women than the pub
Sicher has found for himself, lie is judged by the company ho

plan ttalare.
By eliminating- tha numerous "lemona"
from the long: record a of a majority of tha
prlxe rlntr championa one can take away a
greater part of their otherwise dassllne;
camera In the fistic arena. A careful e
amlnatlon of these ring- records will ahow
a large percentage of the vlrtorlee were
acored over men who could not or would
not fight or. In other worda, were simply
"false alarms." Go back aa far aa John
L Sullivan's memorable career as a. pu
gilist and you will find that out of tha
whole bunch of opponents who met him
only four were of real clam. These wre
Paddy Ryan. Charley Mitchell, Jake Kll
raln and Jim Corbett. Even Ryan was
not a really first-Haas pugilist. He won
tha championship from old Joe Goss. who
was far past his prime , and decidedly
out of condition when Ryan took sixty
five rounds to beat him In a battle on ths
turf under London rules. Before auch
men aa Jem Mace or Joe Cobum at their
beat Goes could not have lasted five rounds
In his poor physical trim.
Sullivan a year or so later had Goss out
in two rounds With big gloves In Boston,
but ha let up on the old fellow and allowed
him to stay another round. Old Joe was
certainty a lemon for young John la. that
night. Another easy one for Sullivan waa
George Kooke, wi-.?ra he - knocked out In
two rounds. John next drova Jack Stew
art, the Canadian champion, off tha stag
of the Howard Athenaeum, Boston, In two
rounds, and then cams to thla city In
search of more soft marks. Sullivan found
one In Steve Taylor, who lasted a couple
of rounds.
Borne ef Sally's Snaps.
John Flood put up a fairly good argu
ment when ha met John la. on a barge
up the Hudson river, but Flood was far
from being a champion. Among tha other
lemons who helped to swell Sullivan's
raeord were Fred Crossly, one round at
.Philadelphia: Capt. Jamea Dalton, four
rounds at Chicago; Jack Burns, tha Michi
gan Giant, one round at Chlcagro; John
McDermott, three rounds at Rochester;
Jimmy Elliott, half blind- and broken In
health from confinement In prison,, man
aged to stay three rounds; Herbert A.
Blade, the Maori lemon from New Zealand,
quit cold In three rounds. Fred Robinson
was stopped in the second round at Butte,
Mont., while George M. Robinson lasted
four rounds at Frisco. Big- Al Marx, the
Texaa Giant, ran" off - the stage before
Sullivan could get a punch at him, after
which Dan Henry, In a quick battle at
Hot Springs, had enough In less than a
round. v .
Sullivan stopped William Fleming in a
round at Memphis and Enos Phillip in four
at Nashville. Frank Herald, another al
leged world-beater, waa beaten to a pulp
In two rounda at Allegheny and Duncan
McDonald waa put sway In four at Denver.
About fifty other Simon-pure quinces were
hammered down and out by John L., wflo
haa always included them In his ring rec
ord. .
Jim Corbett'a List.
Jim Corbett, who followed Sullivan aa the
heavyweight champion, aleo has some real
lemona In hIsrecord, Including such al
leged f lghtera aa Billy . Welch, Frank
Glover, Ed Kinney, BUI Spilling:, Bob Caf
fery. Jack Smith and Peter Courtney. The
"fight" with Courtney, a big truckman,
who knew nothing of the game, did not re
fleet much credit on Corbett. Courtney re
ceived $250 to stay six one-minute rounds
with the champion before the ktnetograph
at" Edison's laboratory in East Orange.
Gentleman Jim gave thla lemon a terrible
beating to make the moving pictures look
real. Courtney had to be filled with liquor
to give him courage. In tha fifth round, by
mistake, Corbett knocked him out, but
more liquor and a rest of twenty-five
minutes brought the truckman up for an
other, round, when he was again knocked
out cold.- Tha public paid well to see tha
reproduction of this, great battle, while
Corbett'a reputation as a wonderful flatter
went up many points.
Bob Fitzslmmona' rreat fighting record
looks well In print, with hla long list of
signal victories, but, like Sullivan and Cor
bett, ha disposed of .many four-flushers
and counterfeits, such as. Arthur Upham,
Aba Congle, James Farrell, Joe Godfrey,
Jerry Slattery, Mllford Zender, Jack
Ktckey, Phil Mavo,.Jeff Thome. Jim Daly,
Ed Dunkhorst, Con Coughlln and others.
All of these men were settled In one, two
or three rounds.
Big Jim Jeffries Is credited In the records
with victories over such thlrd-ratera as T.
Van Busklrk, Dick Baker, Joa Goddard,
Pete Everett, the Mexican Terror; Hank
Orlffen, Joa Kennedy, Jack Milnroe, Jack
Flnnegan and many more, who were put
to sltii before the StiecUiluia lmd received
half their money'j worth. Jeffries was in
hla prime one of the greatest pugilists that
ever drew on a glove, but he always puts
tha soft marks named herein alongside of
FHzsitnmons, Sharkey, Corbett and others
in his official record of ring achievements.
Tommy Barns Had Some.
Tommy Burns, the present champion,
may be said to have all previous topnotch
era faded In the quality and quantity of
lemon fighters who have gone down In de
feat before him.' Nobody ever accused ths
following persona of having even moderate
fighting ability: Fred Thornton, Hilly
Welch. Arthur Steele, Ed Bholtreau, Dick
Smith, Reddy I'hillip. Jack O'Dunnnil.
Tom McCune, Jim O'Brien, Harry Peppers,
Jimmy Dug-gen, Jack Hammond, Jack But.
ler, Ben p'Grady, George Bhroeber, Tony
Capont, Joe Wardlnskl, Cyclone Kelly, Billy
Woods, Indian Joe, Jim Walker, Joa Urhn,
Bill Squires, Gunnrr Molr. Jack Pdliner
and Jim Roche. Burna Is A very clever
business manager and is always en the
lookou for easy marks.
Joe Gans, the lightweight champion, Is
a notorious lemon hunter and a skilled
framer of fake fights. He lay down t
Terry McGovern in two rounds at Chicago,
also to Franke Erne at the old Broadway
Athletic club and to Sam Langford in
Boston. Hla last fight here with Willie
Lewis was simply a strolling match to get
tha coin and another fight with Low la.
One of Gan's methods is to "plant" a
fltrhtei away off somewhere and then be
gin a newspaper controversy with tha third
rater. When ha haa succeeded ta working
the sporting element up to a high pitch
Gsns then goes after hla lemon and fools
everybody. It would be a difficult task to
trace up all of Gans' hlppodromea and
lemons, tor they have been scattered from
the Atl&mlo to the Pacific. (Jans, nowa
days, says ha Is on ths sciusra and will
fake no more, but ha will' always bear
Jack Orsts Wonder.
Jack Oraro, a third rata pug, is believed
to be the champion pugilistic lemon of the
world. Ha has fought and faked In every
ctvt.laed country on earth under many
aliases and disguise. Grara thinks noth
ing of jumping from here to Japan or Af
rU a to get the col.-i ef the soft peuple who
a city under two names a few months
apart. A few years ago Orace went nown
to wheeling, W. Vs., to meet, under hi
own name, a local lSS-nnund boxer and
managed to s-et half the purse by stalling
for ten rounds. Some of-vth managers of
tha club asked htm aa ha waa leavlne- town
to send. them a 125-pounder to meet another
local pugilist.
All right," said Grace, "I va got a
younger brother who can do the weight and
I'll send him along." '
Grace msde the terms of the match and
left for New Tork. A week later there an
peered In Wheeling a smart-looking chap
wo said ha waa Jack Grace's brother. He
resembled Jack in every way. but seemed
to be lighter In weight and more particular
as to his clothing. He was pitted agnlnst
uie local 125-pound boy and proceeded to
stall very much like his supposed brother
By his cleverness In the ring he managed
to get a draw and half the purse. He left
Wheeling the next day on excellent terms
with the club, the mansgers of which sent
their 'kindest regards to Brother Jack."
When Grace got hack t New York he
laughed over the loke he had nlaved on
the Wheeling folks, and as he counted over
his bankroll In the presence of friends he
"Why, all I done waa to run off the
weight, put on a new suit of clothes, have
me nair cut close to me head and look wise
Oh, It was so easy!"
Grace has nlaved the lemon nart to man
star fighters. He says he would go against
jerrnea or any other giant if the loser's
end was satisfactory. To tie down to a
fighter of any class does not hurt nrsrv'a
feellnga at all. He can fake a knockout
better than any actor on the stage and la
one or tha greatest globe trotters In the
Philadelphia Jack O'Brien, ever since he
atartea out aa a fighter, haa Indulged In
tha practice of raising lemons. H haa
confessed to many frameupa, but not until
.tommy Burns gave him tha doublecrosa
and a beating at Doe Angelea waa ha ex
posed to the aportlng public. Tommy Ryan,
the former middleweight champion, also
had a strong penchant for lemona and
frameurs. Bo had Kid MeOnv .i,a

Boss Experts to Ineep English Tarf
Daring; Snmmer,
. LONDON, April Io.-RIc!iard Croker is
developing two thoroughbred at Glcncalrn,
Sandyford, Ireland, with which he expects
to sweep the British turf this year, and
win the classic events. He has a brood of
foals of the bluest blood, several of them
relatives of the great Orby, which won
the derby last year for Mr. Croker. Among
the brood mares which' have produced good
colts are Itlioda B., dam of Orby; Sabine
Queen, Pearl Set, Grose and Nara. Al
though Mr. Croker will be well represented
in the Two Thousand Guineas, Oaks, St.
Leger and other classics, the former head
of Tammany hall will ba a formidable fac
tor. American turfmen familiar with the Eng
lish turf have declared since Mr. Croker s
filly, Pliodora. won the Dewhurst plate
at Newmarket that the owner of Orby lias
sn excellent chance to win the Oaks and
other big events with the filly, and thus
complete the measure of hla success In
England. The winner of tha Dewhurst
plate, a seven-furious race, la accredited
with having stronger claims on the succeed
ing year's classics than has the winner of
the Middle Park plate, a slx-furlong race.
Lesbia,. which, won the latter stake, Is de
scribed aa a small but exquisitely shaped
filly, and not likely to grow much. She
defeated Rhedura in' tlie Middle Park
plate, but the Utter was Just recovering
from a severe lliness. Lesbia did not start
in the Dewhurst plate, a week later, the
race won by Rhodora. If Lt-sbla had
started It Is generally conceded that
Rhodora would have taken her measure
at the longer distance. i It is figured on
this that Mr, Croker's chances to win tha
Oaka are better than those of Sir Daniel
Cooper, the owner of Islila. Cap and
Bolls won tha Oaks for James H. and F. P.
Keene six years sgo In hollow style.

Why llarrard'a Attltade Toward
Snort Reforms Is Impnrtaet
Clnb Rowing; System in
1 It appealed to someone the other day to
ask, "Why Is It that so much Is always
being written about athletics at Harvard?
Why do so many persons think It necessary
to find fault with sports as they are man
aged at Harvard?" Need It be said It was
a Harvttrd man? When a person looks bark
to much of the heated discussion of ath
letics In the universities he Is very apt to
find that most of the talk and argument
la about things as they are put Into action
at Harvard or things that Harvard haa
recommended In a general way. The rea
son that Harvard Is all the time coming
In for criticism, as a rule far from kindly,
is chiefly the fault of Harvard Itself. At
this v-ery time tho currents of athletic con
trol In many colleges are running whlrl
poolwlse Instead of according to custom.
Tha disturbing element has been Injected
by Harvard. 1
When the men who were delegates to the
meeting of the Intercollegiate Athletic As
sociation of the United States last winter
discussed the matter of limiting athletic
schedules and spoke of what they Intended
to do. it did not produce .any uprising.
These men were going to move quietly, and
after due Investigation, toward their end.
However, they wero not as important as
Harvard. What Is done at ' Cambridge
amounts to a great deal more. The chief
reason for this Is that Harvard meets the
biggest colleges In sports and is among tho
biggest. What Harvard Intends doing In
terests Tale as the actions of no other col
lege, not even excepting Princeton, influ
ence the Blue. .
Harvard la Tale's chlrfcst rival. It takes
only the statement In the Tale News of a
recent " Issue regarding the reasons that
there Is no Yale-Cornell boat race to prove
that beyond question. The Tale paper said
that Tale put more value on a victory over
Harvard than any other prise In the
aquatic world. Therefore It reasons Itself
out' directly that Harvard's movements
have adirect effect on athletics at Yale.
Competition Life of Sport.
The life of college sport Is competition.
While in a general way Jt would suffice to
have Intercollegiate contests there are the
other and larger competitions which count
most. The games between universities and
their greatest rivals are those which arc
considered worth while. It's a great deal
like beating your twin brother at lawn
tennis to take part in intercolleglata'sporls.
Tour're the champion of the Smith family,
maybe, but there's a deal more satisfaction
in being the champion. of the Smiths and
Jonscs combined, especially If there is any
rivalry In other lines between these two
families. '
It doesn't lack force through ' repetition
to say what has been said time and again,
that competition Is one of the best alms
and ends of sport. The point la made often
that men ought to take sports for the rec
reation in them and that athletics Is not
the main object of collegiate , existence.
There are few persons who would set them
selves up In opposition to these state
ments. On the other hand, the natural
Instinct among persons equipped for' a
game Is to try to determine who. is the best
at tho game.
It might as well be argued .that tha
trained architects turned out by the uni
versities ought not to compete against one
another for a living. They ouglat to be
architects for the aesthetic pleasure de
signing gives them and they ought to be
content with little pay. If any. Of course
"that's business." But business or not. It
Is no more the expression of the natural
Inborn tendency to fight It out with some
one else than is the modern development of
college sport. .
More and More Sports.
Maybe years and years ago, when few
took part In sports and study - waa tha
whole thing, the Intracollege sports, which
consisted of a type of base ball and a less
violent pig's 'bladder foot ' ball, were suf
ficient. But even In those days, for which
some educators now sigh, it did not take
long for the men In colleges near to one
another to discover that there waa a rivalry
which could be worked best through the
medium of athletic games. It is not to ba
denied that athletic sports have grown
to a point where their Importance does
Interefero with the college work In some
colleges. And those colleges have them
selves to blame. They' confess their In
competence to foresee the development of
athletics when they how announce that
athletic sports have got away from them.
It rather reduces Itself to this: Inter-collegiate
sports are highly natural and In
well managed universities need not be be
yond the control of the academic heads.
To return to the other matter: Harvard
oucht to be more diffident about announc
ing radical changes. It is like a card housg
or a chain of weak banks;. Touch one and
down goes the whole fabric. If Harvard
makes a false step Yale Is'affected, Yale in
turn affects Princeton and then .it goes
waving along through the whole card house
and the .entire fabric of collega sport Is
about destroyed. The changes niay be
well intended; few may gainsay that. But
what Is done, or perhaps better what Is
announced as likely to be done, ought to
be considered very carefully before it Is
made public. With all the doctors at work
on the body of college sport that poor
framework may suddenly collapse. It takes
good heart to stand these sudden shocks.
And it lan't as if Harvard carried through
every announcement that is made. Far
from it. The continued "scarehead" an
nouncements from Cambridge are the
shocks thst are proving too much for tho
weak heart. "Harvard to do this" and
"Harvard to do that." -"So and so of the
Harvard faculty attacks sport" and the like
are all announcements of bluffs that do not
make good and certainly make bad for
the future of Intercollegiate sports.
The Western Conference Intercollegiate
association Invited the University of Cali
fornia to send a team to the conference
track and field meet in Chicago on June s.
but the Calitorniana declined the Invita
tion. The chief reason was the great ex
pense Involved In sending a track team
half way across the continent. There was
no consideration of not having the men,
because the Pacific coast athletes are get
ting to be pretty good of late.

The skin is provided with countless r9rcs and elands, through which
an evaporation is going on continually, day and night. This is nature's
method oF regulating the temperature of our bodies, and preserving the
natural appearance of the skin. These pores and glands are connected
with tiny veins and arteries through which they receive, from the blood,
the necessary nourishment and strength to preserve their healthy condi-i
tion, and enable them to perform this duty.
So long as the blood is pure and rich the skin will be free from
eruption or disease, but when the circulation becomes infected with
acids and humors its nourishing and healthful properties are lost, an4
its acrid, humor-laden condition causes irritation and inflammation of
the delicate tissues and fibres of the pores and glands, and the effect i
shown in Eczema, Acne, Tetter, Salt Rheum, or some other distressing,'
disfiguring skin disease. . .
These humors get into the blood
through a deranged or inactive con
dition of the system. Those members
whose duty it 'is to collect and expel
the refuse matter of the body fail to
properly do their work, and this
surplus or waste matter is left in the
system to sour and ferment and be
absorbed into the blood. There are
also, certain other humors which get
into the blood from without. The .
juice or milk of poisonous plants such
as poison oak, poison ivy, nettle rash,
etc., enters through the open pores of
the skin and takes root in the blood.
This causes a breaking out which
remains for a time and then disap
pears, but returns at certain seasons
of each year.
The.cau'seoF all skin troubles can be traced to some kind of humor
in the blood. Smooth, healthy skins are only possible where the circu
lation is pure; and therefore the cure of any skin affection tan only come
through a thorough cleansing of this vital fluid. Salves, washes, lotions,
etc., are valuable only for their ability to keep the skin clean, allay the
itching, and tend to reduce inflammation; they cannot correct the trouble
because they do not reach the blood. ' .
S. S. S. cures skin diseases of every character and kind, because it
purifies the blood. It goes down into the circulation and removes the
humors that are causing the trouble, builds up the weak, acrid blood,
away, the skin is again nourished with rich, healthful blood, and comfort
is given to disease-tortured skins. Special book on Skin Diseases and
