OF ILLINOIS SAYS
Will Always Praise Tanlac for
. . Restoring His Health
; 'Gains 37 Pounds.
"I suffered for eight long years
before I found a medicine that
' would do me any good, but since
taking Tanlac I have gained ex-
ctly thirty-seven pounds, and all
c niy troubles have Been completely
- overcome," said John N. Moore, a
well known and prosperous farmer
who lives on R. F. D. No. 4, Empire,
111., while in Shorthouse's drug store
in Bloomington the other day.
"When I commenced taking Tan
I lac" he continued, "I had reached
the point where I couldn't do any
work at all, and was forced to hire
a hand to take my place' on the
. farm. I had suffered so much and
. so long with stomach trouble, I
was just about down and out so far
as, health and strength was con-
cerned: During all these years ray
appetite was very poor, and what
little I did manage to eat would
cause me worlds of suffering.. Gas
would form on my stomach so bad
that I could hardly get my breath,
and; I would 'have the worst sort
of. eramping spells. I finally got
to where I was hardly able to re
tain, what I ate, and would actually
get nauseated very time I looked
at anything to eat.. I had fallen' off
so much, and was so low in health
, that all my friends were talking
about the awful condition I was in.
T was very nervous all the time and
never knew what a good night's
"1 heard about Tanlac, then, and
I thought I would give it a trial.
well, sir, my friends and neighbors
rre talking differently now. They
are asking me what in the world
nave I been taking to make such a
bi.? improvement in my condition,
Tdfit just does my heart good to
- tell them that Tanlac did it It is
wonderful the way I have gained in
' weight and strength. I can go to
the field now and do as much hard
- work as any hand on the farm. My
' stomach seems to be in perfect con
' ilitlon. and I never have indigestion,
" nnd am not bothered with gas form
ing after meals. I have the best
appetite I ever had in my life, and
can eat just anything I want. I
am free from all that nervousness,
U'0," and I sleep just like a boy
every anight. Tanlac has done all
" that for me, and I am as well and
hearty now as I ever was in my life,
Rnd as long as I live I will pass the
good word along to others' who suf
fer as I did.". - ;

0'Rourke Says Willard Far
from Best Fighting Condition
Former Trainer Says Champion Is Fat and Slow and Js
Nowhere Near the 'Shape He Was in When He
Defeated Jack Johnson at Havana; Jess Gets Arm
Weary in One Minute of Sparring.
By FRANK G. MENKE.
fnlvcrsal Service Staff Correspondent.
Toledo, O., June 24. No admirer
has suffered keener disappointment
over the present condition of Jess
Willard than has Tex O'Rourke,
one of the greatest athletic trainers
in America, who assisted in fitting
the big fellow for his winning fight
against Jack Johnson.
"I could hardly believe my eyes
when I saw him," commented
O'Rourke "I read some stories,
which spoke glowingly of his condi
tion and I was bunked into believ
ing them. TheJess Willard of to
day is far removed from the great
gladiator that put the negro into
the pugilistic scrap heap.
"Willard is fat on the outside and
I fear that he's mighty flabby on
the fnside and it's what is inside thit
really counts. A fighter may look
good to the eye and seem finely
trained from the outside but if he
isn't hard all the way through he
can't stand the pace of many rounds
of fighting. Willard is slow, very
slow. He appears muscle weary a'
ready and he's boxing on the flat
of his feet. What a vast difference
from the Willard that I trained with
for months, back in 1915. There-
was an unbeatable fighter. A fel
low who could stand up all day
long and take everything that was
TRAIN FOR BOUT
Chicago Admirers Send Train
ing Partner Presumed to
Know Wrestling Methods
of "Strangler" Lewis.
A mysterious stranger is visiting
at the home of Joe Stechcr in Dodge
and he accompanies the Peerless
Joe whenever he leaves the home
nest. Supporters of the Nebraska
wrestling champ living in the vicin
ity of his home have hinted rather
strongly that they were curious
about the stranger.
"I want you to meet' a friend of
mine, trom Chicago, joe smiles
when introducing the mysterious
one. Visitors at the training camp
near Dodge have been unable to
learn the identity of the man who
apparently has taken entire charge
of Stecher's training for his Fourth
of July match with "Strangler"
One diligent questioner of the
Dodge county mat marvel asser'ts
that the stranger was secured by
friends of Sailor Joe in the Windy
City to tram him for the coming
bout and that he is specializing on
a plan to combat the famous 'Lewis
"headlock." "Chicago money will
back Stecher to win the bout in any
amount," the Dodge man who claims
to be on the inside sr:d. "After
watching Stecher work at the Great
Lakes, Chicago sportsmen and sail
ors from the station "are confident
he can easily defeat any man in the
ring, lt Nebraska friends of Joe
want to fatten their purses, they
will have to start before the Chicago
crowd reaches Omaha."
Three Training Partners.
In addition to the "mystery man"
Stecher is working out daily with
his brother, Anton, and Joe Smeal,
a 250-pound boy from Fremont, who
has assisted him in training for pre
Since Lewis succeeded in keeping
away from the deadly Stecher scis
sors hold for five hours, three years
ago, Joe has been learning other
holds. His mat followers are con
fident that with the training he has
secured since that time he is now
just starting on a career of con
quest that will be invincible.
Trains Ont of Doors.
Stecher' is doing all of his training
out of doors, he said in a letter to
Gene Melady, who is promoting the
event. "I have concluded that this
is the only kind that counts," he
said. "I am playing base ball every
day and making regular runs around
the country in addition to working
out with my partners. I will keep
this up until three days before the
match, then lay off. ;-
Joe has learned from experience
that big matches are not as easy as
easy as to get as they once were,
and then only to the best men
on the mat. He i" profiting
by this experience and training
diligently and is confident of defeat
ing Lewis. His Omaha bout, July
4, is the first he has had since May
22, when he defeated Charley Cutler
of Chicago in Indianapolis.
handed out to him without tiring,
a fighter who didn't know the mean
ing of the word 'weary.'
"Willard now seems old and tired.
In 1915 he moved around on his toes
all the time; now he works on the
flat of his feet. There is no spring
iness in his legs and no zip to his
actions as compared with 1915. And
the frequent dropping of his guard
indi.ctes that he gets army weary
"Willard mixes it furiously with
his partners for about one minute of
each round and that's all. Then he
lays off and let his partners hit him
while he stalls around and rests for
two minutes from the exertion of
that minute of working."
"There's another fault with Willard,
and a great one. He isn't timing
his. punches. He's got the same
fearful strength, but his batting eye
seems dimmed. The champion used
to hit with unerring accuracy. Now
it's different. He is making plenty
of wild swings even though thjey are
directed at slow moving sparring
partners, whose every trick of de
fense is known to Willard.
, "What's your thought as to the
outcome of the fight?" O'Rourke
"Im not committing myself just
now, but if Willard hopes to win
he'll have to be in far, far better
shape than he is right now."

Ihe proposition that Burns offers
on behalf of Taylor is that Curley
cover Taylor's $100 forfeit or raise
the ante to $500 and he will cover it
within 48 hours and the balance
within three weeks of the match.
Farmer and a number of his friends
