THE LATE P. D. ARMOUR.
HOW DOES THE KEELEY CURE AFFECT THE GENERAL HEALTH?
j ; There can be but one truthful answer, and that is that it is beneficial in every
sense of the word. There is no nausea or. other sickness during treatment. The rem
. edies build up the nervous system, and it follows from this that the general health
'.must be improved. Ask our patients; they know and will tell you truthfully. Do not
ask a saloonkeeper or other person whose interests are against our work. Informa
tion upon any subject should be asked of those who know, not of those who guess.
' '. The Keeley Cure is now more than twenty-nine years of age time enough, the most
captious will admit, to test its merits and the permanency of its effects. Could we
remain in business over twenty-nine years and still be prosperous if we injured the
health of our patients! ' ,
The above letter shows you the faith
the founder of the great Armour Pack
ins company Interest had In the Keeley
Cure. Dr. Keeley's most enthusiastic
supporters were among our very-best
business men and professional men;
men who, not requiring treatment
themselves, have observed the wonder
ful good that has been accomplished
by the Keeley Cure and have advised
their friends of it. And hundreds
of business houses have, like Armour
sent us their employes for. treatment.
None other than the late "Joseph Me
dlll, publisher of the Chicago Tribune,
after a thorough test, wrote.
"I sent Doctor KeeleV five of the
worst drinkers and opium eaters 1
could find. After a month they were
sent back cured. The poison -had been
impelled from their systems. They
looked as if a miracle had been per
formed upon them."
Twenty-nine yearn of uninterrupted suc
cess, the Indorsement of the friends t
humanity, ami the applause of more thin
three hundred and fifty thousand sradu
atea. la the record of the Keeley cure for
liquor and drug addiction In 1880, when
Doctor Keeley declared that drunkenness
waa a dlaeane, and that he had dlacovci i-d
a remedy for It, the declaration waa re
ceived much as the new of Ualllleo'a ols
covery that the earth wa round, or
Harvey'a discovery of the circulation of
the blood. Abuae and ridicule were heaped
upon the bold scientist. Kven no treat a
philosopher as Bacon did not believe In
blood circulation. But truth la ever tri
umphant, and time and Investigation have
conrlrmed all that Doctor Keeley ciaunea
for hla twin discoveries dlaeaae and the
remedy. What Doctor Keeley said then,
and what the pioneer Institute at Dwlrfht,
111., and Ita many branches throughout the
United States and elsewhere say today Is,
namely, that If the drink habit be con
tinued long enough, the victim becomea a
drunkard. This Indicates a diseased con
dltlon wherein the nerve cells have become
so accustomed to performing their func
tions under the Influence of alcohol that
they are dependent upon It, and will no
longer perform their functlona properly
and painlessly except when under alcoholic
Influence. This condition proves tnai i
craving exists. The craving proves a dls
eased condition of the nerve cells. A the
physician diagnoses a cough as the symp
tom or aiseasea conamon, m iveeiey pny
alclan diagnoses the llauor desire as a
symptom of diseased nerve cells. The
general practitioner alms to remove the
cause, when this Is done the symptoms
disappear. The Keeley treatment restores
the cells to a normal condition and the
craving for drink disappears.
Who Takes the Keeley Core?
We have cured thousands of veterans of
the War of the Rebellion in the Natloiiul

range from fifty to eighty yeaiV
We have cured children under five yetr

How Long Does it Take?
' The cure of drunkenness Is usually ef
fected In four weeks. All patients receive
a thorough physical examination, and the
treatment is adapted to the needs of each
Individual case. Alcoholic stimulants re
supplied to patients undergoing treatment
for drunkenness during tile flrM few -days,
after which the desire disappears, and
hence tltere Is no struggle to "quit," no

FIGHTERS HATED TO TRAIN
Surprising Methods of Sullivan, Titz
simmons and McAuliffe.
LONG CHANCE ON GETTING LICKED
A sh.re nd iIa;reot Will !) for
Mr," John I., lard to Say Jim
Hall's Flsht vtlth Fits
"Wait till I get a shave and a haircut
and then 111 be ready to fight!" That
la whdt John U Sullivan used to say
when some new rival had been dug up
and the big fellow waa requested to be
gin training. Sullivan never cared much
for training and waa not an exception to
the rule either. Many of the greatest
fighters get Into Idle and laay habits
after thry have reached the top rung of
the ladder. The overwhelming defeat of
Stanley Ketchel in California recently at
the hand of Hiss Papke, the new middle
weight champion, la said to have been
due to a lack of training coupled with
the highest sort of living. Even James
J. Jeffries, the greatest of all pugilists,
never liked to train.
"I don't mind the actual fighting." said
Jeff recently, "but the training la In
fernally hard work for a big follow like
me. You see I'm so heavy that It's a
very tough Joh to take the weight off.
No more of It for me. I'm through."
It would probably take Bit Jim at least
thiee months of the hardest kind of work
to K"t Into proper condition to defend the
heavyweight title. Nobody knows this
better than Jeffries and for that reason
he prefers retirement to strenuous gruel
ling training methods. The famous boiler
maker Is naturally laxy and like other
champions that have thrived before him , wagon driver when he- faced Kllraln
he ha a fondness for the pleasures and
luxuries of Kasy street.
One Jeffries Trained.
Fot" that matter It would be tempting
fate for Jeffries to re-enter the prise ring
after so long an absence from the game.
Their s at least one fight for which
Jeffiles really trained long and faithfully
and tl.at wes Ins battle with Kltzslmmona
for U i hamplonvhlp. When Jeff began
work for that miu he weighed exactly HI
pounds, but after six weeks of terrific
work lie scaled at J06 In a shirt, trousers
and socks. He never fought at leas than
:'.0 after that and now weigha 260.
It was lack of condition which was one
of the reaaona for the downfall of Sullivan
when Corbett beat him at New Orleans
In 1W. Corbett, young and ambitious, was
In magnificent condition. He was trained
to hp minute fast, aggressive, clearheaded
and cmfloeut. Sullivan, after a semblance
of training at Canoe Place Inn down on
Long Island, entered the ring hog fat, alow
and .ith a brain befogged with wine.
"I tmly nerd a shave and a haircut for
this young dub." he said and then met hla
Wa'tti loo. In the twelve years that SjIU
van I Id the championship he never did
any r al liarj traili ng except perhaps when
he flirt won his title. The laat time he
waa r- ally fit waa when he tackled Herbert
Sladn, the Maori, In Madison Square Gar
den In ISC OKI Jem Mace brought Blade
here from New Zealand, saying that the I
Maori was a wonderful fighter. Sullivan
always respected Mace's Judgment and
worked with might and main to be ready
for the supposed killer. But Slade was
nothing but' a lemon and Sullivan stopped
him In three short rounds.
Sully's Idea of Training.
- When Sullivan was supposed to be train
ing for the Kllraln fight up at William
Muldoon's place at Belfast, N. T., he really
Indulged in all sorts of dodges to avoid
much hard work. He used to Insist upon
having a shave, haircut and shampoo every
day and never failed to say to the country
barber as he settled back In the chair:
"Take your time now, cull. Don't hurry
this Job. I wan't a rest. See?"
Of course the barber knew bis business,
and Sullivan would often kill a couple of
hours In this way, while his real trainers.
Jack Barnett and the lata Mike Cleary, aat
anxiously waiting to get a crack at him.
These men were the only ones who could
Induce Sullvan to do any work at all.
Muldoon and Sullivan, on the other hand,
were almost always at swords points and
on several occasions nearly came to blows.
When Sullivan went out on the road for
long walks, he always Instated that his
trainers, Barnett and Cleary, thould g
ahead of him. Then after covering a few
miles Sullivan's wonderful thirst would be
gin lo get In Its work, snd the champion
would hunt up a spring where he would
gulp down perhaps half a gallon of cool
water. It was often the case that when he
returned to Muldoon's farm hs showed an
Increase in weight of four or five pounds,
to the consternation of his handlers. The
water did It. of course, but Barnett and
Cleary did not know It.
Another favorite loafing place of John I
waa the cheese factory at Belfort. He uaad
to spend houra there watching the process
of cheese-making, or sleeping In some dark
corner of the factory. It was no wonder
then that Sullivan waa aa fat as a brewery'
nichburg. Mlas. If Kllraln had been In
anything like good trim himself that day
he might have carried off the champion
ship. As It win, any first class middle
welglit coud hsve beaten either Sullivan
or Kllraln. They were both stale, slow and
out of form, in apite of the fact that they
went seventy-five rounds with bare
k..uckles. I,ondon rules, some of the rounds
being oi.ly half a minute long.
ew Notion the Coast.
Sullivan's alleged training for hla mill
with Corbett at Canal Place Inn was an
other farce. Ks did practically no work,
drank all the ale he could get and slept
under the shade trees when he was sap
posed to be doing hard work. Some of his
backers discovered Sullivan's true condi
tion about two weeka before the mill and
Immediately sent a barrel of money out
through the country to be placed on Cor
bett at big odds. At least two of his frienda
were said to have cut up tTOO.OOO, won In
Jim Hall of Australia was another big
man who seldom did honest training for a
mill. Even when he stopped Fttsaimmons
at Sydney he was not In proper fettle.
There have been numerous arguments re
garding this battle. Fltsstmmone has re
peatedly asserted that hs "laid down." The
following Interesting account of the mill
appeared In the Sydney Referee on Febru
ary 11, W9n:
"The laat fight Hall will have before
leaving on Wednesday next was that with
Bob FlUsimmons, the clever and agile New
Zea lander, who haa been looked upon as
one of the smartest middlewelghts for two
year now. They fought for 100 and the
gat money. Hall was all aboard In iht

confirmed his claim to the championship.
Fltsslmmons looked 4n far better condition,

"The first round was chiefly noted for
Hall's long and effective left leads and
heavy rights on the ribs, one of these
nearly bringing Fits down, and for Fits's
clever countering and determined attempts
with his right at the Jaw. Hall avoided
these easily, his quick lnstepplng and neat
guarding serving him well. Fits got his
shoulder well up to Hall's attempt at the
"Round two waa similar, though Hall did
muoh more execution than Fltzsimmona
and discolored his left poeper with a hot
right. He also stabbed the New Zealander
In the mouth heavily and visited the ribs
hard and straight with the right.
"Coming up to the third. Hall carried
out his avowed Intention of taking all Fits

If he could. He fought furiously, but Fits's
cleverness with his head caused the cham
pion to beat the air and Bob's shoulders
a lot and to be soon pumped utterly.
Neither could do mivb damage, but Hall
got awfully groggy and nothing but his
level head saved him. He kept his long
left poking out or came in with his fore
arm across Fits's throat, and so was Just
able to last the round, recovering a bit by

laid his Jaw bare for one second. Rising

Jack MeAallsTc'a Record.
The pugilist who took the greatest
chances of them all by not training was
Jack McAuliffe, the former lightweight
champion of the world. He openly ac
knowiedged to a friend recently that he
never did any real training for a battle
after he left the amateur ranks. Jack waa
a quick thinker and a great ring general
and drpended more on these qualities then
on physical condition when inside the ropes.
He was in bsd shape when ha fought Jem
Carney of F.ngland a seventy-four-round
draw at Revere Beach, Boston. McAuliffe
knew st the time that he waa in no shape
to tackle the Brltiahar. but as tha latter
refuaed to postpone the mill Jack simply
suffered the terrible gruelling to save bis

Cafroll at the old California- Athletic club
he was again out of condition. Dick Roche,
his backer, had about $15,000 on the result
and saw no chance of getting a dollar of it
back as he sat In Jack's corner disgusted
at the champion's helpless condition. About
the thirtieth round Roche turned to several
race track men and said:
"I'll sell my entire interest in this fight
for 1100! Jack can't win! He's all In!"
There were no takers, but McAuliffe,
hearing Roche's offer, turned quickly and
"Sell nothing, you old fool! I'm not licked
yet!" In the forty-seventh round McAul
iffe caught Carroll with a right hand smash
on the point of the Jaw and scored a clean
The night before McAuliffe met Billy
Myer, "the Streator Cyclone," at New Or
leans in 1892, Roche and Jack were sitting
on the veranda of the broken down train
ing quarters at Bay St. Louis.
"Dick," said McAuliffe. "It's a fine night.
How would you like a nice cold bottle of
wine before you retire?"
"Nonsense, Jack,'replied Roche. "Where
could you get any wine In this bum town?
You'd better go to bed."
McAuliffe smiled as he reached under his
chair and pulled a quart of champagne
from a concealed cooler. Roche jumped out
of his seat as If shocked by electricity.
"You've been fooling me!" he yelled.
"Come down and get on the scales! I'll
bet ten thousand you're overwelgh't." Roche
was wild with rage as they went to t)ie
weighing machine, where, sure enough, the
lightweight champion was just ten pounds
too heavy HT1, pounds.
"You can never get that off! I'll go right

"We'll drink the wine. Dick," ssld Mc

which he and Roche celebrated the vic

2Vw Notion on the Coast.
When McAuliffe and Brooklyn Jimmy
Carroll went into training on the Pacific
coast they astonished rina- followers hv
their reckless metheds of getting Into
condition. President Fulda of the California
Athletic club wrote aeveral letter o prom
inent eastern sporting men asking them
confidentially for an explanation of the
go-ae-you-pleaae atyle of training. Fulda
went on to atate that thla happy-go-lucky
pair never got eut of bed before
noon, after which they took a pleasant
atroll for about a mile. On their return
to training quarters ,they ordered several
rounds of cocktails or a few small bottlea.
Then they devoured a couple of pounds
of beefsteak or a dosen chopa. After that
there was another easy stroll, with a few
drinks of whisky or beer. In the afternoon
they boxed a couple of round or punched
the bag for perhaps five minutes, Just to
get up sn appetite for a big supper. Then
the flghtera spent the whole night trying
to find out which could hold the most
whisky or sle. This unhesrd of style of
trelnlng greatly alarmed the California club
officials and caused the betting to be three
and four to one against each pugilist. This
was the time that McAuliffe stopped Eng
lish Jimmy Carroll, while Brooklyn Jimmy
Carroll put Australian Billy Smith away
In a third of that time.
!robably because of overconfldence
Fltsslmmons did not trsin hard for his firat
mill with Jeffries. Two weeks ttfore they
met at Coney Island several friends paid
a visit' ta Fits at Bath Beach. They ar
rived there at 11 o'clock In the morning
and were Informed that "Robert had not
come downstairs yet." ' Soon the Cornlsh
man appeared, and, as he was always hos
pitable, he got out a bottle of old Ken
tucky, treated his friends and took three
or four big drinks himself. Then he
wrestled with his lion, punched the hag a
while and later sat clown to dinner. A
huge steak, boiled potatoes, spinach, to
matoes and two pieces of pie were washed
down by half a dozen bottles of beer. Fits
then hitched up his team and drove to a
nearby resort, where several brandies were
consumed. At Foit Hamilton an army of
ficer who Knew Fits well got out sonic
ancient fire water and the lanky man did
full Justice to It. He was back at tjUar
ters In time to wrestle, box, exen ise with
dumbbells and also punch the bag be.'oro
eating another big meal.
"Don't yoa think the drinks will keep
you out of rhape?" asked one of his
"Not a bit of It," replied Fits. "Ths
aid stuff is for Indigestion, while t.ie
malt is to 'elp me take on weight. I've
got to build up, ye know, for Ihia chap
Jeffries, and 'ell be nothing for me. Tin
bigger the man the 'arder the tall."
But after Jeff had put Fits away in
eleven rounds tho Coinishman said for
publication that he had been drugged,
while he admitted to Ins friends that toe
"old stuff" had helped to undo him.

President Jefferson, of course, took a
new cabinet. President Madison continued
in his administration a number of the
cabinet olflcers of President Jefferson,
and President Monroe held some of his
predecessor's. John yiilncy Adams also
continued to meet about his council hoard
some of the advisers of James Monroe, but
Andrew Jackson began his administration
with an entirely new set of official coun
selors. He maintained also another set of
advisers, unofficial, who became known as
the "kitchen cabinet."
