Which Is Best, a Dead Polo Player Who Was Sober, or a Living

WIUTTKN FOR THE EUSVAT REPUBLIC.
"Hades Is paved with good Intentions. This
Is a story which demonstrates how often
those who would do most for those they
love Injure tho objects of their affection in
their ery desire to protect.
Some ten jears ago a joung man. wealthy
to the million, handsome and athletic, mar
ried a girl in every way hN equal. Both
had money, jouth and personal beauty. It
looked like an unusually happy marriage.
Kven now it has procn s0.
The joung min hid all the money he
needed. He- was not Imbued with the Amer
ican eagerness to make his million two
He had a large Income and what specula
tions he did make wen sound and rei.Jiier
atie. He did not nllow business to take up
all his time.
He loved horses and desired ery muck to
go In for polo. Ills wife hid seen the great
same pl.ijed, had een a man thrown from
his- pons and knocked senseless. It alarmed
her. When her joung huvbind made known
his desire to play polo "-he at once objected.
Her objections were strenuous They pre
alled. Her husband reluctantly gave up
the fTOject. ,
He was a lively fellow, fond of goodfcl
lowshlp and pleasint compmy. His spirits
were high and had to have a safety valve,
riecludcd from following his favorite ath
letic bent he began to be a "Rood fellow."
He developed a taste for liquor. It grew
and srew. The wife tried to check it, but it
still crew. Ho is a pretty bad care now.
I once heard a parent complain of a "on's
Inclination to athletics as waste of time.
"Let him alone." said an old philosopher.
"I never knew a good athlete to be o bad
Bo it is. If mlladl had allowed her hus
band to vent his spirits In the whoop and
hurrah of polo he might have been saved
from drink. He could not have plajed polo
and been a drunkard. Statistics prove that
not one man In 1.000 who plajs polo is ser
ously Injured. Anjhow, which husband is
best a dead polo plajer, who was sober, or
a living drunkard?
Speaking of the effort made by the Chi
cago bench show- to Rive field dops in set
ters and pointers nil possible chance against
merq i.how dogs In ihese breeds, a well
known authority on field trials and bench
shov i savs:
"It Is reported that the comFig kennel
show- in Chicago has decided to pay par
ticular attention to the practical tjpe of
scttersiand pointers. It is somewhat curious
that, while prob.iblv five times as much
money nnd, trouble are invested In setters
and pointers as in all other breeds of doRS
put together, the bench shows have neg
lected them for years, and have put most
of their attention on fancy breeds of va
".Mr. Whitford. the JudRe selected to act

thority on shootlnR dops, end is an old ac
quaintance of the veterans who made St.
Louis the Rreat setter aifd pointer center
lnthedjs when 12. C BterllnR. the Lu
cases, John Munson nnd others pf that ilk
were the pillars, of the doR fancy.
'If the Chicago- show can -succeed in
arousing something like the old-time Inter
est in fetters' nnd polnturs. It would be a
great and, useful departure from recent
methods, v Mr. "Whltiord will have a. diffi
cult task Io--re,concile the conflicting Ideas
about bench-show points for'shoottng dogs.

Hero cometh light out of darkness Train
er Lathrcp of the Harvard track team be
wails the decadence of college spirit and
athletics, becaue. he i)s. the bojs have
become o Interested In fencing, boxing,
Rolf, hOcke nnd other patlmes that they
will not dfcvotc enoush of Ihe.r plavtlme
and attention to one certain branch of the
athletic curriculum to bec:me projwrly ex
pert In It as to InvariabK win.
This Is Rood news to those who love snort
for the sport's own sake, not for sake of
w Inning at any cost. Uasvball, fcotlall,
rawing and track athletics, the leading col
lege iports, are noble games They by
no means represent all that Is worthy,
cood or desirable In athletic pastime.' Golf,
hockev, fencing, boxing, skating, shooting,
etc., are sjorts full as noble, quite -as use
ful, and far better in as far as excellence
In them does not ultimately mean profes
sionalism. In fact, any of them offers a
wnrihv field for monav maklnR.
Colleges derive more or less valuable ad
vertising from the production of very suc
cessful athletes. As thincs ro, puch ab
solute success demands specialization. An
a rule, a successful college athlete Is a
specialist. Of course, in some rare cases
a IwV has plajed on the baseball and foot
ball, (earns, rowed, in the 'varsity boat and
participated in track team work. Such
cases are rare. As a, rule baseball and
football Injure the .track athlete and row
ing does not fit a man for success In oiher
branches of collego sport.
If Harvard maintains the trend which
Trainer Lathrop lamentn It will be well
for -college sports If other great colleges
follow Harvard's example It will be well
for them. The Admirable Crichton of
amateur sport Is more to be admired than
the Iron-bound specialist. He Is bound to
be more accomplished, of wider mental
range, and alwaja less of a professional. It
Is much better that the gentleman be an
all-round average man sportsman than a
mere Huccessful specialist. Let him play a
Rood hand at whist, pull a good oar In a
boat, be a fair shot In cover, have a good
seat In a saddle, a line stjle In Rolf, run-a
fair race, play a fair shortstop, than be
merely a medal winner In one small branch
By all means, let the college athlete be an
all-round man. plaj lng for tne sport's sake,
i.ot for the mere lust of winning.
The New York Dally America, a turf pa
per: may be quite an authority on running
horses. It Is rather ?roll for men from Mis
souri to read that the saddle-horse breeds
of this country will be adly hampered in
producing walk, trot and Raited horses If
the tariff against Imported Percherons,
hackneys, etc., 1 enforced.
Speaking of saddle horses the other day
Mr. D. L. ParrUh owner of Forest King
and Forest Squirrel, two champions, said:
"It does not seem possible that there can
exist a man so Ignorant that he does not
know any-better than to ay-that a hack
ney or a percheron cross is essential to
breeding saddle horses. Indeed It seems Im
possible to imagine a man who does not
know that it would Inevitably rnln the un

Victims of Varicocele.
Varicocele is a wpakened and broken-donn condition of the Spermatic veins and sexual circulation, due in the great majority
of C3-"es to sexual Indiscretions It makes no difference what the cause, be It strain. Injjry or abuse. It Is important that It b
cured, for In time It will produce a softenlnc ?ml complete wasting of the stands and result In total Impotency. That Varicocele
is one of the most serious and treacherous diseass afflicting mankind has been proven beyond all doubt. If neglected it will un
dermlne the ph"lcal strength, derange and depress the mental power. The sufferer realizes that some unseen hand Is dragging
him down, that there Is a constant drain on his vltalitv. and he knows in his own mind that he Is but half the man be was before
this disease stole upoi him. He broods over his troubles In -.Hence, loses confidence In himself, becomes morose. Irritable and de
spondent, and it is little wonder that many men become Insane from the severe mental strain or commit suicide to escape an ex
istence which promises nothing but solitary suffering and despair.

most aggravated cacs without one single failure or recurrence. Under our treatment averv trace of weakness and disease quick
