not feel nervous as I pushed through

the ring that night at Cney Island.
Funny! I Just kept thinking, "Gee,
I'm glad all that hard training Is over."

hook after hook. He didn't go for the
body much Almost all of his blows
were sent for my Jaw. Many of them
I blocked or ducked, but a few reach

hit. In the middle ot the fourth round
I dropped the crouch for a moment
and straightened up to slug, and then

bent over and drove my right Into his

The Effects of Opiates.
THAT I.NTAIVTS aro peculiarly susccptlblo to opfumnnd Its varfoui prep
arallons,all of which aro narcotic, is well known. Even In the smallest
doses, If continued, these opiates causo changes In tho functions and growth of
tlio cells, which nro likely (o become permanent, causing Imbecility, mental
perversion, a craving for alcohol or narcotics In later life. Nervous diseases, such
as Intractable nervous dyspepsia and lack of staying powers, aro e. result ot dosing
with opiates or narcotics to keep children quiet In their Infancy. Tho rule among
physicians is that children should never rccclvo opiates In tho smallest doses for
morn than a day at a time, and only then If unavoidable.
The administration of Anodynes, Drops, Cordials, Soothing Syrups and othr
narcotics to children by any but a physician cannot be too strongly decried, anil
tho druggist should not lid a party to It. Children who are ill need tho attention
