THE OMAHA SUNDAY BEE: MAY 2.
Removing the symptoms Is not all that is necessary to cure Con
tagious Blood Poison. The virulent germs which produce these out
ward manifestations must be completely driven from the blood before a
real cure can be effected. The least taint left in the circulation w ill,
sooner or later, cause a fresh outbreak of the trouble, with all the hid
eous symptoms of ulcerated mouth and throat, copper colored splotches,
falling hair, sores and ulcers, etc.
Contagious Blood Poison is the most treacherous of all diseases.
It has its victims in its power
Almost before they realize its
presence, because its first
symptom is usually a little
sore or pimple so insignificant
that : it ' does "not excite sus
picion. But the insidious
poison is , at work on the blood
and in a short while ' the pa
tient finds he is more or less
affected from head to foot,
Contagious Blood Poison
is too dangerous to trifle with.
No time should be lost in rid
ding the blood of this destruc
tive poison, and in no disease
is it more important to have
the proper remedy. Medi
cines which merely check the
symptoms for a time and leave
the real cause smouldering in
the system have brought mis
ery and disappointment to
thousands. Faithfully the suf
ferers took such treatment,
usually of mineral nature, and
when all symptoms had dis-
ppocared and the
up in the
was left off, found
had only been shut
yvstcm awaiting a
. opportunity, to return,
every symptom intensified.
S. S. S. cures Contagious
Blood Poison and cures it
permanently. It goes down
into the blood and removes
every particle of the poison,
makes' the circulation pure
and healthy, and does not
leave the slightest trace of the disease for future outbreaks. S. S. S.
is made entirely of roots, herbs and barks, all of which are heal
ing and cleansing in their nature. It does not contain a particle
of mineral in any form to injure the delicate parts of the system.
S. S. S. will also drive out any lingering remains of mineral poison
that may be in the blood from the former treatment. If you are suf
fering with Contagious Blood Poison S. S. S. will cure you, because it
will purify your blood. Home treatment book and any medical advice

dock defeated Harry Broom for $1,001) and
the championship of England, and th next
year Bayers whipped Perry, th Tipton

amount. Jn 183 Tom King, after a hard
fight, defeated Jem Mac for $500 a aid
and the English championship. In lfct
Jo Goss and Mace fought a aiaughtarlng

Then go back to aome of th bar

Harry Lacaru fought Denny Harrlgan in
lSoi for $300 a aid up In Canada. Harry
wa a ion of th well known Issy I.aiarus,
who ran th Falstaff. a famous old sport
ing hotel on Jamea street, New fork. They
battled eighty-six round In log minute
and Harry won. After th fight Lazarua
shook hand with poor Harrlgan and 'then
collected $60 from the spectator for hi
antagonist. This was considered a very
Important fight at the time and all th
leading New Tork sport were at the ring
aid. Just think how much the victor got
out of this affair after he paid his train

f.ghters of today wouldn't accept $200 for
three weeka work to get Into condition,
while Harrlgan and Lasarus trained hard
and faithfully for three month.

"All that Jo Cobum, afterward cham
pion of America, fought Ed' Prlc for In
1 for $300 a aide. The battle took place
at Still Pond, about nine mile from Bos
ton, and created great excitement among
eaatern sporting men. Price was a hand
some fellow of 26 years, standing five feat
ten Inches and weighing lft pounds when
he entered the ring. He was a native of
Indon, Bngland. while Cobum was born
In Ireland, being five feet nine and one
half Inches tall and weighing 15$ pound.
The battle lasted 160 rounds, in 200 minutes,
and wa the longest bare-knuckle fight
ever held In America up t that time. Iiater
on, however, James O'Nell ot New Tork
and J. Fitspatrlek fought for four hours
and twenty minutes at Berwick, up in
Maine, for $200 a side on December 4, 1860.
Price was a remarkable man, aside from

Belfast, Ireland, for the title and $600 a

county, Canada, had donated for the oc
casion. Cobum waa seconded by the noted
Orvllle Gardner and Jimmy While, while
Gibbens' handler were John Pyburn, after
ward a Brooklyn police commissioner, and
Hen Winkle. It wa a good stiff battle,
with honor even, up to the twenty-first
round, when Cobum landed a corking blow
over the heart and the Irishman went
down and out.. So you see that away back
fifty years ago fighters could score knock
outs with blow in the body. Coburn's
blow remind me of the famous solar
plexus punch with which Fitcslmmon
stopped Corbett at Carson City.

"After Coburn got back to New York
nd settled hi training bill he had just
$60 left to tpsnd about town. When you
compare this with Tommy Burns' $30,000
tor losing to Jack Johnaon It seem ridicu
lous, for Coburn wa a greater pugilist
than Burns in every way. Why, boy,
Coburn would have whipped Burn, John

off a log.
"Some of these modern fighters want
jO0 for car fare before they will come to
town to talk business with club match
makers. But the old-timers, you can bet,
had to walk If they didn't have the price.

the old fighters were often giabed by un

who was known ss "Steel Ribs," because
of the terrible body punching he could
withatand, fought Saucy Aleck, an English
man, twenty round In thirty-five minute,
and after a bloody battle he won a purse
of Just $."0. The famous John Morrissey
fought Prof. Charle F. Ottlgnon at the
latter gym in Crosby street, thl city, the
tame year for a $36 purse. It was a glove
contest for points, but Morrissey made the
profesaor hed much claret before the bout
Barney Aaron, who died several years
ago, and Dan Keirigan, a noted rough and
tumble scrapper, split a ten-dollar bill one
after a red hot four-round argument. Patsy
Marley and Con Orem. two a game fight
ers a ever pulled off a shirt in the ring,
fought sevci.ty round in two hour and
fiv minute on the turf In Delaware for
$50 In the same' ring where Con Fitzgerald
and Ed Wilson had just finished a great
mill. At th end of lue sev enty-sixth round
a company of soldiers suddenly arrived
and captured more than 100 of the spec
tators. This occurred on October 27. 1SS3,
and among the prisoners who were escorted
to Fort Delaware were Coburn, Orem. Jim
Blunders. Harry Hill, Ed Wtlaon,-Captain
TurTir. Tom the Boatman and many oth
er. Billy McMullen, however, managed to
ball most of th crowd out th rext d.iy
and when they came before General
nVhoepf, the commander of the fort, all
but the fighters, who had been pinched,
too, were allowed to go.
"It wasn't such a pieaaant trip going to
fihis in those daya ot the civil war, for
there were soldiers everywhere. When I
saw the bayonets at the Marley-O.-em mill
I never knew I could run so fast through

streams. Poor Orem. After hiding for

ever saw giving consolation to the winner.
It wa rather pathetic, too, corning as It
did from an old broken down prises fighter
who had just received the beating that
ended lit long ring career. When he got

fought a lot of bard battle for les than

a $300,000 purse muit be emoking om nw

tn that world that will draw that amount
of money unleas the fight could be pulled
off In Madison Square garden, and that
only another dream because the authorities

Tony Ross, who waa beaten by Kautman

Meaey for Claba.
"lis a fact that big clubs In this city

only way the clubs can protect themselves
Is to combine and cease outbidding one an

on a fixed limit for purees, say $5,000 for
ten rounds, a half hour's work In the ring:
How many actor or professional men get

TRAVERS WANTS BRITON SCALPS
Deadly TirtTlnar Iron May Do the

With Jerome D. Travera. the American
amateur champion. In Scotland pructlcliix
for the British championship, which takes
place at Mufrflcld, May 24 to 28, the at
tention of all our players Is naturally cen-tered-on
his performances. At this tlm the
dutalls of the Mulrfleld course may be of
interest. These figures are taken from the

They seem at variance with the following
from the London Field, which says: "The
total length of Muirficld I now 6,194 yards.
It Is curious to note, however, that even
with the recent extensions. Mulrfleld will
have eleven holes between 300 and N0
yards, seven holes of this average length
occurring In the first half round of nine
holes. The longest hole (the eleventh)' Is
4T2 yards, and the shortest is the fourteenth,
with 138 yards."
Those familiar with Mr. Travel' game
look forward with pleasurable anticipation
to what he will do on these eleven holes
between 300 and 400 yards. That deadly
driving iron of his, direct at the pin fur
anything from 180 tn 200 yards, should tell
Its story. If on his game, he will put the
amateur record for the green to at least
aixty-nlne with a possible sixty-eight. On
distance there are only two holes on
which he cannot get the green In two,
under normal conditions. To offset these
there are short ones. With one putt on but
theee greens and a sixty-nine Is In sight.
Travers will drive for him from 220 to
260 yards, according to the - going and
straight down the course. On his record
with mashle, Jigger, mid-iron, cleek and
brassy, he can generally get near enough'
to the pin for a chance to go down in
As a putter there la probably no player
in the world more accurate than Travers
when on his game. Golfers have seen him
frequently hole out from distances of over
fifty feet, and he is deadly on those from
two yard to fifteen feet. Hi nerve and
courage have been proven in many a hard
battle againsht Walter J. Travis, such as
the semi-final round ot the last champion
ship, when he stood 2 down with 4 to play,
and won out by 2 up, by taking four con
secutive hole in better than par figures,
4, 1 4 and 3.

BASE BALL TRAVEL EXTENSIVE
Few Itrnltae the Way a Team Motes
NEW YORK, May 1. In connection with
the splendidly organized system of pro
fessional base ball there is one feature to
which the public seldom gives a thought,
and yet It Is one of the most Important
matters that has to do wltli the pastime.
Jt Is the travel. Offhand, one seldom
thinks of the long Journeys which the
teams of the country are compelled to make
to fill their schedule engagements. The
extension of lerrltoiy has been going on
for so long, and the fact that a team may
play In New York one day and in Cleveland
or Pittsburg the next has come to he so
mucli a matter of common knowledge that
It attracts no attention.
Yet It should. In spite of the comfort
with which the Americans travel and the
great distances which they annihilate In
a night, there Is a certain amount of hard
work In connection with railroad life which
does wear on the players. Without the
facilities, which are at our coinniBml to
go from one section of th country to an
other, the baae ball circuits would be much
more circumscribed than they are now.
Jumps to St. Tenuis from Boston, the long
est route that Is traversed, would be out
of the question. The great Intersectioiml
leagues would be Impossibilities.
As It Is, players, when making the long
Journeys, are less likely to do themselves
Justice than when they have shorter rides
to fill their engagements.
The best trained athlete, and the one
who observes most carefully the require-'
merits of perfect health, hardly feels at ills
ben when he arrives In St. Iouls after
a long night ride over the flat but trim
lands of southern Indiana and southern
Illinois in midsummer.
Occasionally there Is a reversal of form
on the part of teams from tlw east which
play at St. I.ouls, which Is attributed to
the carelessness of the players, but, as
a matter of fuct, is simply the result of
physical wearinesa and nervous worry after
a railroad ride of hundreds of miles.
An Instance of travel weariness was In
evidence this spring when the New York
National League club was on its way homo
from the Texas training ituarters. The
players had been on the road almost every
night for a week. The first time that they
enjoyed a thorough rest was In Richmond,
and even then thev were called at an early
hour In the morning to take the train for
Before the cars had rolled five miles
from the station half of thb players were
huddled up In the corners of their seals,
worn out from their long siege of travel
on the rail, and anooslng quietly in the Vir
ginia sunshine which permeated their spe
cial car. Yet they, played bull that aft
ernoon as If they had rumbled down from
New Tork In a stage coach. Another In-
