Sores and Ulcers never become chronic
unless the blood is in poor condition is
sluggish, weak and unable to throw off
the poisons that accumulate in it. The
sv-stem must be relieved of the unhealthy
matter through the sore, and great danger
to life would follow should it heal before
the blood has been made pure and healthy

When this has been accomplished the dis
charge gradually ceases, and the sore or
ulcer heals. Itis the tendency of these old
indolent sores to grow worse and worse,
and eventually to destroy the bones. Local
applications, while soothing and to some
extent alle iate pain, cannot reach the seat
of the trouble. S. S. S. does, and no matter
how apparently hopeless your condition,
even though our constitution has broken

a statement to the effect that "Walcott

Said the announcer:
"Manager Kennedy believes that there is
trickery in connection with Walcott's end
of this fight, and he sajs that Walcott's

It was explained that the management
could not control the wagers made, al
though it would have liked ery much to
have declared all bets off. As matters
stand, therefore, all the bets mpde on tho
contest will go with the referee's decision.
In other words, those who backed West will
be paid the wagers.
The contest was a one-sided affair
throughout. Walcott, who appeared high in
flesh on entering the ring, seemed to fight
himself Into condition as he went along.
He made a punching bag of West. West
made a wretched showing, and, to saj the
least, fell far behind his average form.

They were to have fought twelve rounds,
but the New orker was forced to quit in
the eleventh round, after McFadden had
planted a right oer his heart. The early
rounds were full of fast work.
Rose was the first to show signs of weak
ness and McFadden beat him to the floor
of the ring In the eighth round. From this
time to the end of the tenth the Call
fornian held the upper hand, and when
they shaped for the eleventh round McFad

sent Rose back toward his corner. Rose

about 10 o'clock three or four mornings or
each week during the summer vacation,
have wondered why such broken-down men
were seen going In. These men called to
see tho Reverend George B. Cutten. the
football center rush on the '96 eleven, who
was graduated from the academic dspart
ment in the clios of 1S37.
Mr. Cutten spent the three years following
h's graduation In special study In psychol
ogy, theoretical and experimental. HP
notlsm and magnetic influence took up
much of his time when ho was not busy
preaching or making pastoral visits. A
hard worker is Mr. Cutten and a friend of
the poor. His church, the Hope Baptist
Congregation, has grown tremendously
slrce he was ordained to thit charge.
Mr. Cutten's theolog is of the practical
sort. He visited police courts and eleemosy
nary Institutions Whit he iriw led him to
think of the Influence of silence us an aid
to religion as a cure for s'n. and he began
to experiment first with a boy who was
addicted to the cigarette habit In such a
digreo that his mind and boJy were suf
fering. He brought the boy from the Calvary
Baptist Home nnd began to experiment on
him b hvpnotlsni. When he had put him
under the Influence he lictured him on tlitf
terrible effectH of the habit, and told him to
shake it olT. and the result is that tho boy
does not wmoke cigarettes now.
But it is with alcoholic victims that Mr.
Cutten Is most eoticermd.
To-morrow morning at 19 o'clock three or
four men will gather In the upper room.
Thev look dissipated. The stamp of ihiuor
is on their features, but they are better
men than the were three weeks ago, and
thev are hopeful because they have seen
ether men who have become total abstain
ers because two months ago they began to
take the hypnotic cure.
Mr. Cutten begins his treatment by call
