All-America Foot Ball Stars
i ' i '
By W. i. FARXSWORTH.
NEW TORK. Nov. ll.-Foot laJI ex
perte are figuring on their all-America
elevena about thia. stage of the season
and already have probably decided upon
certain pluyers. It 'is hardly fair, how
ever, for anyone to pick their men so
early, a not until ' tha very last game
has been played and won It Is a certainty
who la the very best in his respective
position. , .
Tho' writer, HUo ' hundreds cf others,
thinks he knows of a few who slresdy
are sure of being elected to tho "great
est team on paper," vbut tbe only way
to mention their names at this time of
the year is to call thorn likely candidates
Wendall, whose front names ore Percy
tangdon. looks to be as sure of muKIng
the all-America team an he waa latst year.
Here la the pivot of the irreat Harvard
eleven. Take him away from the crim

weakened 80 per cent.

as Pprackllng, but he Is not. In ' tiie
opinion of the writer, as versatile a per

Pprei'liJhig was a demon in hla attack.
Ha did not show to the ssme advents;?

Immense.. And, believe me, the lltUe
Providence eleven is far ahead of any
other In this mod of attack.

unto a bakata.ll catcher thiomlng to

SAN FftANCISCO, Nov. ll.-Ad Wol
gast and Freddie Welsh are to box
twenty rounds In the Vernon arena, Los
Angeles, on Thanksgiving:-day.
Here Is an event that, looms tu re 3
letters on the pugilistic calendar.
It la a genuine championship and wilt
b marked with all the "pomp and
panoply" of such affairs. A 'coveted
title will hang7 In the balance, and the
affair will, be presided over by a real
Jive referee; who will be reedy to slap a
shoulder' or-hoist a glove-bedecked hand
aloft when the battie ts lost and won.
After the bobtail bouta of the east and
the no-account , contest of the west, a
ring event of this character. I some
thing to look forward to. What makes
ii an me more interesting -.Is that It
flavor of the International complica
tion. If Woigast win hi match It will be
i the crowning triumph of hi career. A
victory over Packy McFarland or Matt
Well at the hard and, faat lightweight
notch would not mean a much, for It
I very evident that neither of these men
could meet the champion on level weight
terms. Both Packer and Matt hav to
fight-a few pounds above the scale, and,
such being th case. Woigast would get
little credit for whipping1 either of thorn
"at '133 ringside."
Welsh can make any weight that Woi
gast can make. In the next place,
Freddie Is a combination fighter. He la
reinarkubly. clever at ttand-away work,
and he , has studied the. ftght-yourself-loce
system until he 1 well able to tako
car of himself during clinches or rough
ing rpells at close quarter. He 1 one
of the , cleanest little fellow that ever
took up fisticuffs as a mean of gaining
a livelihood end h is a conscientious
In addition to ail, this, he know th
fighting part of Ad Woigast thoroughly,
having watched the Michigan Wildcat
develop from a husky rfovlce to a world
champion and having "had 'em on"
with Woigast In hi cub days.
If Woigast overcomes all this, it will
prove that the present holder 1 the light
weight chaniplou through and through,
or scanning point for point, the light
weight division at the present time holds
no more formidable bidder for th title
than Kngllsh Freddie Welsh,
Some of Woigast' ardent admirer are
of tbe opinion .that he w ill hav no mor
trouble with Welsh than ha -i.i.
wen Moran. but It la not easy to deter-
mine how they arrive at the conclM.ir,
It Is generally admitted that Moran.
when he boted Woigast, waa in poor
shape, owing to leading a dissipated life.
Ho made a brave show of fitting himself
for tbe tuwgle. but the tamina waa miss
Ing, and the best proor of thls,waa that
Owen lacked the support of the betting
Men who had 'Wagered thetr money on
Moran In hia prior fights In Ban Fran
ciaco, placed their coin on Woigast last
Fourth of July. This doe not Imply
that there was anything crooked la the
affair, but rather that those who knew
Moran were well satUfled be could not
"go the route." And the result proved
that they figured correctly. 4
Asaln Moran fought right into Wol
gasta handa. He led Jut when the
champion wanted him to and he allowed
himself to be Inveigled tnto mixing mat
ter, in wiucn he was outpointed
Th. re ure two direction in which Wolsh

In view of this criticism from WolEh
it will be Interesting to watch how he

Woigast makes it his boast that h
hatm't met a man yet whom he couldn't

that hla opponents lead simply because

they lead because they have to that he

Every old sore is due "to the ulceration of flesh
tissues. The superficial abrasion or opening may
nave come as the result of a scratch, burn, cut, or
some other wound, but the place remains open and
of a chronic nature because the tissues ond flesh
fibres beneath the skin are in. an unhealthy condi
tion from a polluted blood supply.
Even if it were possible to subdue the ulceration
of the flesh and produce an antiseptic and cleanly
condition of the sore with medicines applied to the
external opening, such treatment could not bring
about any permanent curative results. Deep down
in the blood there is a continual cause at work to
prevent the dace from healing.
If we expect a permanent cure it is not the !0RE but the BLOOD
which must be cleansed. Then the morbid matter and infectious germs
will be destroyed, and the flesh, becoming healthy, will knit and join
together, and the ulcer can no . longer exist. We do not mean
to say 'one should never use any externa! treatment for an old
sore, for we realize that some' salves, lotions, etc.. are often verv
soothing to the irritated and painful flesh. But the person who

been done there is no longer left any inflammatory impurity or infec
tious matter to irritate the place, and nature causes the natural and
certain healing of the ulcer. When S. S. S. has purified the blood and
the placi is once more nourished with pure, rich blood, then every
symptom disappears, and it is not a temporary cure, but the place is
firmly and solidly healed from the bottom to the outer skin. S,SS
is recognized as the greatest of all blood purifiers, and therein lies its
ability to cure old sores. It is purely vegetable, containing no mineral
in any form, and its tine tonic effects are always helpful in overcoming
the impure systemic effects of an old sore.
We have a special treatise on Old Sores which we will be glad to
send free to all who desire it. It contains the statements of many
cured persons as to the value of S. SrS. We will also be glad to send

Army-Navy game, which Is to be held
in thii city on November S5. will In mJ
probability draw ona of the largest
crowds r.f tho Kriditon season. Ae
cortflrff to reports from tbe Pennsylvania
coeimltlee, which bciy bas charge of th
tlcit.'ts and arrangements for the game,
the d-iwc.nd for tickets has been cnor
moiiA. As ia former year?, one-third of all th
snats on fcVonklin field will go to each

lb University of Pennsylvania will b
soil, as usual, to the following university,
bodir, viz., truKtoes, faculty, con
tt'.h.itcrs. Members of the foot bull team

Each ticket will be sold at JJ.60 and th
proceeds divided between the organisa
tion for the relief of dependent widow
of officer and enlisted men of th army
ar.d r.avy of tho United States.
While comparative fw tickets hava
been found en public sale In former years,
nevertheless; each year some of 'thou
who were fortunate enough to have
tickets allotted to them have seen fit to
abuse the privilege. Many different plans
have boon tried in past year to atop
speculation in tickets, all of which were
more or lea effective.. This year any
person unable to use the ticket allotted
may receive the face value of them from
the committee at any time prior to tha
morning cf tho game, all such ticket to
be sol at the bos offlco of Franklin
Try to Protect Tickets.
The committee ia makrhg every effort ti
prevent the sale of ticket allotted to tha
university. If any ticket Is offered toe
sale at more than Us faoo VhJue the com
mittee reserve th right to purchase the
same at the advanced prlco at which it
Is offered for sate. When signing tho
application etich person to whom .tickets

i.iittee for tho price thus paid la excemt
of the face vahio thereof. A record ia
