Jnt now bacaui'h haa refueed to algn
attlcla for a laeniy-roiiml fight with Sam
(.atigfoid, giving a a "on that the com
Ihg ala-round bout In Thlladelphla on April
iff mint ha drilled flrat. From all accounta
Ketchel ha loat favor In California, where
ha an once regarded a a world-beater.
Thai wa wlnn he ahowed wlllln'gnea to
fight anybody, regardlem of weight and
Inihra, and a I no won fame hy displaying
rematkabla ganienee In long drawn out
encounters. Hut Ketchefa failure to atop
raphe In twenty round and hla weak fight
agalnat Jack Johrt'on opened the eyea of
California experts, who now Insist that the
once formidable Michigan piiglll la noth
ing mora than an exploded phenomenon.
Ketchel rerelved an offer of a lin.OOO
gnsranlee not long mgo to meet Langford In
'Frisco during the week of the Jeffrles
Jnhnaon affair. I.angford already had ac
cepted tha proposition and snw no reason
why Ketchel should not attach his signa
ture to Iha article. But Ketchel, It seems,
sent woid lo the promoters that he could
not think of tackling I.angford In a fight
that Involved so much wear and tear. In
word, the Michigan fighter ahowed that
ha did not csre to spend a month or more
In strict trslnlng. Because of this luck of
energy, therefore. Ketchel is roundly
acored oi tha coast by persons who say
ha Is afraid to take chances In a bout of
more than six rounds and who predict
that unless he Is absolutely fit Langford
will make short work of him when they
coma together In Quakertown.
Iianrford. meanwhile, has made a pro
nounced hit at the Golden Uitle and Is re-
aided a the logical opponent of Jack
Johnson, providing, jit course, the latter
should happen to defeat Jeffrie. In that
vent I.angford would promptly challenge
Johnson to fight for $10,000 a -.lle and
would post that amount Immediately to
bind a match. Hut lngford doe not be
lieve h will ever have a crack at John
son for tha heavyweight championship, be-'
cause he feels confident Jeffries will win
the big fight. In expressing this belief
tangford ssys Johnson lacks real game-
ness; that If Jeff la fit and can hit like
he used to, the negro champion will quit
tinder fire. He Insists that no matter how
clover Johnson's defense mav prove, Jef
fries 'wlih his tremendous punches will
lltf rally beat down the blit black's guard
and hammer lilin Into a s'.ate of submis
sion with blows on the body. If Jeffries
wins, Langford saya he will not challenge,
him, for ho declares he would have no
chance to whip the boilermaker. But, on
the other hand. If Johnson succeeds, the
Boaton slugger will hound him Into a
match, which he has been anxious to se
cure for several years.
May Call Again
Kana City Wanti Russian Lion to
Try Hi Luck , Once .
KANSAS CITY. April t. Several well
know n wrestling promoters in this city
are trying to Influence Oeorge Hacken
schmidt, the Russian Lion, to come to this
country again to display hla prowess In
the mat game. Hackenschmidt Is the
wrestler, It will ba remembered, who was
handled so roughly by Frank Ootch, the
world's champion, when the two met In a
title bout two years ago.
One of the men who is working to get
Hackenschmidt to come to this country
again Is W. W. Wlttig. He arranged the
bout with Uotch two years ago. When
he was asked If there was a possibility of
the big wrestler coming here he said: .
"In all probability Hackenschmidt can be
persuaded to come. The best wrestlers 1n
the world are In this country today, and
It Is to his advantage to make the trip.
Of course, he cannot forget the battle with
Ootch. Hackenschmidt atill thinka he got
a rough deal. However, that'a ancient
history; so what's the use in talking
".ome persons have told me that they
do not believ the Rtissian would
prove a good drawing card. Many of them
think he quit In- the match with Gotch.
I am not of that oninlon. however I ka.
auraly be.ve tn,t n9 would be tta big a drawing
card as ever.

WASHINGTON. V. C. April -Th se
curing of the national regatta for this
August IS and 13 on the Potomac P.lver
wna a clever mov on the part of the
Potomac Boat Club, which made tha bid
for th affair, and President Charles n.
Warden "and his able lieutenants ar com
ing In for high praise on securing the blue
ribbon aquatlo event of America. Ther
was no regular regatta scheduled for the
Potomac river for the present year. Balti
more was on a hot scent for the Labor
Day regatta of tha Middle States Associa
tion, and last fall Boston wanted It badly,
but on the pretext that their new cause
way was not completed they withdrew,
though at the same meeting the New Eng
land Association had July 4 given them for
tha day of their big race meet. Baltimore
set up a claim of straw, while Saratoga
made a feeble bid, and both were wiped
away when they saw ar. almost unanimous
disposition to vote Washington.
It was but another vote of confidence In
the ability of the Potomao Boat Club to
manage such . national affairs, as their
record of three middle states held here
by this club haa given them a world-wide
International reputation among the oars
men, and it's up to the membership to keep
up that reputation by making; the two
day's national of 1010 the greatest regatta
America has ever seen.
Claude R. Zappone. the delegate from
Washington on the National Association,
states that the sentiment everywhere wa
for Washington, and he la confident that
the rgatta. will eclipse the most fond hopes,
and President Pllklngton and Secretary
Fortmyer of the association were en
thusiastic in stating that they really be
lieved Washington would be taxed to house
the crowd that would flock here to see the
To boom this feature of the reg-atta it Is
expected that the convention committee of
the Chamber of Commerce will get busy
and by the distribution of literature Induce
many from far away places like Canada,
the extreme northwest and south to visit
the city during the regatta. They are going
to make it a gala week; that is, if tha go
ahead boomers on the convention commit
tees are backed up by the full Chamber of
Commerce, and visitors will see Washing
ton at lta best, even though it be mid
summer. The action of the Chamber of Commerce

the Potomac Boat club to make the affair J
it la hoped, by the Board of Trade; which
will be asked by the local oarsmen to help
along the city affair. Commissioner Ru
dolph is an enthslastic exponent of aquatics
and rowing In general, and aa head of the
district government is very much gratified
that Washington secured the regatta.
Tha National Association of Amateur
Oarsmen of America fn awarding the 1810
regatta to Washington ' acted wisely and
will redound to the credit of those in'
charge. The two daya of classic rowing
vents will attract the best oarsmen ot
America and our northern British posses
sions, it will stimulate Interest among our
oarsmen, will afford visitors an opportunity
to see our unrivaled course on the Potomac,
and there Is no doubt our generous public
will respond to the call liberally when sent
out by the committee In charge.
President Taft, who Is an ardent oars
man, having pulled on the Yale varsity
crew, Is elated that the Potomac river will

LEGS BROKEN SLIDING
IN BASE BALL GAMES
tollaae Playa Hare Been
Jnreal Far Tale
NW YORK, April . Two college base
ball playera have been badly injured this
spring while In tha act of eliding to base,
one at Harvard and one at Tale. This
sort of Injury has been frequent on the
diamond in recent years. A few yeare ago
George Van Haltren, then of the Giants,
broke hla leg while eliding for second base
on the old Tlttsburg grounds. Lefty Davlfj
broke hla leg the same way on the same
grounds, and Mike bonlln fractured a leg
while making a slide on the Cincinnati
grounds. Another player who broke a leg
sliding was Otla Clymer.
As a matter of fact the second cushion
haa been prominent aa a atatlon at which
accidents have occurred. There have been
Innumerable spiking at that position,
most of them accidental, but a few Inten
tional, and other accidents resulting In the
incapacitating of a player for a considera
ble length of time. Year before last Larry
Doyle was stepped on by John Hummel
whl e the latter was trying to reach second
base at the Polo grounds, and Larry waa
out of it for the reat of the season. In a
previous season Tim Donahue of the Chi
cago Nationals waa severely spiked by
Jack Warner while the latter waa making
a slide'. Harry Slelnfeldt and Napoleon La
joie had a collision at second base. Every
body thought for a moment that Steinfeldt
had been killed, but he soon recovered.
La joie, however, as a result of the accident
developed water on the knee and was out
of the game for a considerable length of
time. Hal Chase has been spiked on the
hand a couple of times sliding to second.
Fewer and in some case fatal accidents
on the ball field, however, have been more
due to other causes, such as head-on col
lisions and playera being struck by
pitched and batted balls. Already thla sea
son there ha been a death from a pitcher
being struck by a batted ball. Also dan
gerous is a swiftly pitched ball, the narrow
escape of Roger Bresnahan two years ago
fatality was that the other day a boy was
hit on the head by a fly ball, death re
sulting In a few hours.

ing and puxxling problem In collegiate
athletics becomes again prominent. It Is
well known that some of the colleges in
the country have entirely given up their
efforts of prohibiting the playing ot eum
mer base ball for money or lta equivalent
by their students.
These colleges say thst It is not prac
ticable to enforce the amateur rules with
regard to this sport; that It ha been tried
In the past and failed; that It is better to
come out squarely and permit the atudents
to play, for money under certain restrictions
than to prohibit It and not be able to en
force the prohibition. They also say that
the efforts toward control result tn a .great
deal of hypocrisy and falsifying with a
consequent greater Injury to the student
body than the open permission to the play
ers to spend their summer vacation In play
ing base ball for money. These colleges
permit men who play on professional ferns
during the aummer time to play In Inter
collegiate Contests the following spring.
There are other Institutions which aie
endeavoring to control this matter by allow
ing the students to play aummer base ball
for money, but not permitting them to
play afterward in Intercollegiate contests.
In order to give them opportunity of play
ing base ball in the spring special teams
of Ineligiblea are formed and these play
with the intercollegiate representatives, but
do not take part in intercollegiate contests.
Most of the colleges of the land aie en
deavoring to, apply the amateur rules to
college base ball as well as to other forms
of sport. These institutions find that it is
a most difficult problem In intercollegiate
athletics with which they have to deal.
Very stringent rules are necessary, and
the temptations to violate them are so
great that many' students undoubtedly do
ao and then conceal the fact.
The demand for good base ball players
la so great In this sport-loving country
that the pi-oblem is bound to continue lo
be a most serious one. Many organisa
tions are dealing with the subject In a
most drastic manner and have succeeded
in applying amateur ' rules pretty thor
oughly to summer base ball among the
colleges and universities represented In
their membership. Among ttvso colleges
are the Intercollegiate Southern associa
tion, the Ohio State association and the
"Big Nine," centering about Chicago.
The Intercollegiate Athletio association
haa been Studying the question for several
years. It obtained a report in 1307 from all
parts of the country', which showed that
the evasion of the amateur rule in sum-,
then it has had committees working on th: J
subject endeavoring, first, to get a satis
factory enunciation ot th amateur law,
and, second, to devise a uniform means
for enforcing this law with respect to sum
mer base ball. The task is not an easy
one and It Is by no means as yet - com
pleted. The greatest trouble, is that the
publk) and the student body' Itself are not
educated equally as to what la the law
of amateurism or as to Its necessity. The
matter is to be reported on again. The
Amateur Athletic Research society i mak
ing a special study of this problem and
It is hoped that some satisfactory solution
will be evolved by next December.
A great deal of interest is manifested in
the efforts of Dartmouth to settle this
question for itself. The authorities there
are endeavoring to educate the student
body to the opinion that it Is not fair
for the professional to compete against
the non-professionals; that the young man
who goes off and spends his summer
months in playing professional base ball
should not afterward return to college and
compete in intercollegiate contests, because
It makes the game unfair to the other
side. It, however, believes that the young
men who need to make money to pay
their way through college ahouid be al
lowed to do so on base ball fields if they
can, and yet not be deprived ot.the priv
ilege of playing during college season. To
accomplish thes ends this institution has
elected the scheme of forming . teams of
players eligible for Intercollegiate contests.
Such teama have every opportunity to play
In intramural games, but are not allowed
to take part In intercollegiate contests.
This is the scheme being tried at Dart
mouth' and It aervea to have many good
features. It is a practicable way of' set
tling this vexed question of giving the boy
who needs to make money and can do It
on professional baae ball ninaa an oppor
tunity for thia and yet not deprive him of
the privilege of playing during the aca
demic season. On the other hand, it will
remove the temptation to falsify, and it will
do away with the unfairness that comes!
from making the average college man p ay
In the Intercollegiate contesta against any
professional. Something should be done to
correct the evils resulting from the tempta
tion to conceal professionalism on the part
of our college base ball players. One fea
ture that complicates the situation la the
fact that two or three colleges and univer
sities in a region may be endeavoring to
apply the amateur rule atrictly to base
ball, whereas most of Its rivals may not
apply these rules. The rivalry between in
stitutions and th desire for victory are
so atrong In many cases that It all leads
to many infractions of the rules of ama
teurism, Which have a serious result on the
morals of the student bodies of the com
Probably within the next year or two
methods wiil be estsbllshed which will con
serve the rights of all, meet with public
approbation, and preserve principles ef
amateurism in college sports.

I didn't find out I had contracted Contajious Blood Toison
until it had made considerable headway. I had heard a great
deal of the value of S. S. S. as a blood medicine, in fact had a
friend who had cured himself of the same disease through its
use, so as soon as I discovered the nature of my trouble I began
taking it. I got along splendidly from the very first and my
recovery was steady. When I first began the use of S. S. S. my '
face was so full of sores and eruptions that I could not share.
Other parts of my body were similarly affected, but there is ' '
now not a blotch, pimple or any. other sign of the disease. I
was cured by S. S. S. and I know I am cured to stay cured as
this was several yenrs ago. There is nothing that equals
S. S. S. for Contagious Blood Toisoii and I always recommend
it in such cases. WALTER WliBER.

The acknowledged virtue of S. S. S. as a blood remedy induced
Mr. Weber to commence its use when he found he had contracted
Contagious Blood Poison. The good results he obtained is just another
demonstration of its value as a cure for this disease.
Contagious Blood Poison is the most powerful and destructive of
all blood disorders. Its virus permeates the entire circulation and this
explains why any one afflicted with this malady usually finds its symp
toms manifested in every portion of the body. From head to foot the
insidious poison breaks forth. The hair and eyebrows come out, the
mouth and throat ulcerate, skin eruptions and sores and ulcers break
out on the body, the bones ache, glands in the groin swell, and
frequently the nails on hands and feet are affected.
The only possible way to cure Contagious Blood Poison is to
remove the cause by purifying the blood. This is just what S. S. S.
does; and it is the only medicine that absolutely and thoroughly
cleanses the circulation of every particle of the germs and virus of the
disease. Mercury, Potash, etc., are often used by despairing sufferers
in the hope that such strong treatment will kill the poison. But this
cannot be done; the disease may be checked temporarily and the
symptoms improved, but the old poison is slumbering in the blood, and
when the treatment is left off the disease always returns.
The ability of S. S. S. to cure Contagious Blood Poison comes
from its blood purifying properties. It goes into the circulation and
removes every trace of the poison, makes the blood pure and healthy
and leaves no dregs of the virus to break out later on. S. S. S. is made
entirely of roots, herbs and barks, each of which has a direct and
I cious Blood Poison the entire system
