GENERAL SP0HTIXG SEWS OP THE DAT
Patrons of the local baseball club cannot
possibly have derived much consolation
.from the result of the team's "Western trip as
far as it has gone. The showing, as far as
good playing is concerned, has been a poor
tone indeed. But there are, no doubt,
causes or reasons for this poor showing
which may to some extent satisfactorily ex
plain matters. However, the trip among
other things suggests a question well worth
discussing at the present juncture. The
query referred to: Is it a wise and profita
ble policy to make these spring trips with
the club? A question of this kind cannot
be answered in a word; indeed there are
so many features connected with it that to dis
cuss them all would require three times the
"space I hare at jay command. Hon ever, there
are two or three points of it that can be dis
cussed here, and I venture to say the result
;11 show that it would be better for the club,
flayers and the public If the "sprinirpraC'
was done at home. Generally speaking

reporting for duty on April 1 are in
jpects similar to the supposed sculler,
jome here, to use the phrase, in softcon
n. They need to be hardened to undergo
struggle before them, and it is safe to say
.at nobody ever heard of a man or
i number of men getting physically
hardened by riding about on trains,
sleeping in strange places almost every night;
and performing in strange towns day after
day amid cold and damp weather. There have
been many traininc and "hardening" systems,
but tne above has not yet neen known except
in the basebah world. "Why. the wonder is
that the players don't return home much worse
than when they went away. If the players
were to stop at home, and steadily go through
a dally exercise. Including ball playing, the re
sults as far as the pbycal condition of the
players is concerned would be exceedingly bet
ter. They could then expect all the good
effects that accrues to an athlete who carefully
ttains at one place for five or six weeks.
A Financial Los.
It is, indeed, rare that we hear of any of these
practice trips being a financial success. I
think it is sale to say that the Pittsburg club
lias its first success to mace yet, so that from a
monetary point of view the club is a financial
loser and the players are no better and proba
bly not as good physically as they would have
been bad they remained at home and done their
practice. I may say boldly that they would
have been better bad they stayed at home, be
cause it is worthy of note that when away I rom
home they practice on none of the grounds on
which thev have to play during the pennant
contest. But these "practice" games are an
imposition on the public. Manager Phillips a
day or two ago.evidently without any qualms of
conscience, said the club is not away to play
winning ball, but is out for practice. This is
another way of stating the fact that the public
Is being fooled. A club is advertised to play a
game and the public is led to believe that
everything connected with the contest is hon
est. This delusion ought to exist no longer,
bowever, because Manager Phillips has told ns
that victory or good playing are not the ob
jects. Practice only is the aim. In truth, this
is worse than a hippodrome. When this ex
ceedingly frank admission is made we need
hardly expect the public to come to the con
clusion that spring exhibition games are all
shams and delusions.
The Work of the Clnb,
Nobody who is interested in the welfare of
the local team need be discouraged because of
the apparent poor showing it so far has made.
The games and general circumstances so far
have been such that there really is nothing to
lead us to any reasonable conclusion regarding
the merits or demerits of the team. It cer
tainly would" be unreasonable to expect the
players to be in anything like good condition
yet. Until they are, that is, until they are in
sound playing form, it would not only
be premature but unfair to criticise.
Besides, we cannot expect a team
to play with that vim and determination in a
contest where there is nothing at stake that
would characterize them in a championship
struggle. It seems to me a fact that no team
could steal 11 bases on a pitcher like Pete Con
way were he in earnest about his work. Yet an
Inferior aggregation like the Kansas City team
pilfered that .many from him on Thursday.
This, to my mind, proves the statement of Mr.
Phillips that the players are merely out for
practice. A few of the team have done well.
That perennial youth, Jimmy Galvin, has com
menced well. So has Smith, Beckley and
Iiller. Smith, in fact, can always do well in
the field. Lauer, the new catcher, has given
excellent satisfaction so far, and altogether
there is not much to complain about yet.
Where Will Ward Go?
Another phase of the Ward controversy has
presented itself. John M. has sternly refused
to obey the mandates of President J. B. Day re
garding the Washington deal and at present
the former is simply a reserved man. It is now
.a certainty that he will not go to Washington,
because Presideht Hewitt has very wisely com
menced to expend that $12,000 in purchasing
two or three other good players. It may be
that President Hewitt's club will be all the bet
ter for Mr. Ward's refusal. Two such men as
Wise and Morrill, together with another good
man, are certainly worth more than Ward in a
team. Where Ward's destination will be for
the season is hard to say. If President Dav car
ries out his threats Ward will play nowhere,bnt
will simply be kept on the reserve list. How
ever, it seems that a result of this kind is not
at all likely to happen. I don't think that Mr.
Day has the least fear of "Ward or the brother
hood. That body is cractically useless in the
matter, but I do think that Ward is too
good a man for Mr. Day to,pat on the "Shell"
for a season. Sooner than do that I fancy Mr.
Day would sell Ward to Boston. However, it
Is likely that Ward will remain in New York.
The IieaEne Teams.
During the week all the National League
teams have been playing except, of course,
Chicago. All of tbem have done tolerably well
except the Pittsburgs. Indianapolis has had a
tough time with Louisville, but Shreve was a
puzzle that the Colonels couldn't solve. Cleve
land vanquished the S Louis lot, "nearly shit
ting them out. New York has done well, and
so has Philadelphia. . Altogether, judging
from general results, the teams seem to be in
tolerably good shape. New York at present
looks the most formidable.
St. John Hesitates.
John Teem er has failed to bear anything
definite yet from St. John regarding the pro
(posed races between him, Teemer, add Gau--,daur.
I am at a loss to understand why St.
John is hanging fire. Teemer has really
panted St. John his own .terms and still the
fatter hesitates. This fact wonld seem to
prompt the opinion that St. John may have
rued of bis challenge, because it is simply bis
challenge that Teemer is replying to. Teemer'a
original challenge was rejected by St. John and
tie issued another. The McKeesport sculler
lias accepted this and still no .match is made.
T o onthree races between Teemer and Gau
daur would be interesting. Although Teemer
has beateu the St. Louis man It is bv no means
certain that he will beat him next time. Qau
daurisaspeedy tnd powerful rower and he
ought to have anything but the worst of a two
mile race with Teemer.
Weir nnd Murphy.
One of the great events of the week has been
the battle between Ike Weir, the "Belfast Spi
der," and Frank Murphy for the featherweight
phampionship of the world. The battle was
somewhat out of the ordinary, the way battles
go nowadays. There were a sufficient number
of pomts in it to enable us to come to a conclu
sion as to which is the better fighter of the two
and there were also plenty of bad points which
can be utilized to show that both men can learn
a little more. Doubtless the battle was in some
respects an extraordinary one. It was ternffle
audit was harmless. As a real battle it lasted
only a very short time, and as a burlesque it
lasted feO three minute rounds. Not long
ago good judges would have laughed at
the idea that two pugilists, with hard gloves,
could have faced each other 80 rounds under
Queensberry rules. The great object of the
latter was to have nothing but real business,
which was thought to mean that any two men
fighting under Q, R. would have to fight from
the word go. Such battles as that of Meyer
andMcAuliife and Weir and Murphy, how
ever, put a different phase on the matter. We
can now safely say that two pugilists can re
main in a ring nnder Queensberry rules just as
long as sleep, hunger and leg weariness will
permit them. Sqrely matters have come to
such a pass that something ought to be done to
prevent such contests. In many respects it
would be far better to have no Queensberry
rules at all. I am aware of the many good
qualities of the rules mentioned, but I doubt
ery much whether or not two men of equal
weight fighting for the championship should
adopt them. Certainly it would be in Keeping
with a custom that is as "old as the hills" to
have every championship title contested for
under London prize ring rules.
Weir the Better Ulan.
Regarding the now famous battle much can
be said, because, as far as any definite result
of it is concerned, neither man was awarded
the victory. However, in my way of thinking,
there was sufficient done in the battle to show
that Weir is a much superior pugilist to Mur
phy. With the exception of the sixty-seventh
and sixty-eighth rounds the real battle was
confined to the first IS rounds." During that
time Weir knocked Murphy about like a prac
tice bait .Murphy couldn't jrevent"the on
slaught and his counters counted almost for
nothing. I think that if the battle had been
decided on the work of the first 15 rounds there
would have been 10 to 1 on Weir being the
winner. In all respects Weir proved himself
bettesjthan Murphy. The latter lacked tactics,
hitting power and defense. Weir dis-
? laved these to a very great extent.
lowever, after the first 15 rounds
AVeirwas practically hors de combat. His
bands were gone and he simply became an or
nament in the ring that Murphy tried to get but
couldn't reach. Murphy's inability to reach
out and settle Weir after the tatter's hands
were gone is conclusive proof that he is not a
champion. Murphy and his seconds knew what
was wrongwith their opponent, and still Mur
phy failed to "corner" Weir by an means. Of
course Murohy forced the fighting, but Weir
persistently dodged out of the way and Mur
phy couldn't prevent him. Weir, no doubt,
exercised good judgment in keeping out of the
way when his hands were useless. He now
and again tried to use them, but practical peo
ple know that to strike with a broken hand is
then limited himself to keeping out of harm's
way. Altogether, everything goes to show that
"Weir is a better fighter than Murphy. The
atter, doubtless, is one of the pluckiest little
ellows who ever entered a ring, and it was
only bis remarkable pluck that kept him going
so long after the early part of the battle.
The Spider's Weak Point.
Weir, however, has a weak point, and one
that probably does not redound to his credit as
a pugilist. His hands frequently fail him, and
it may be that this is owing to a lack of art on
his part. It is one of the greatest essentials
of pugilism to know when, where and how
to hit an opponent. First-class men,
as a rule seldom break their hands up. Jem
Mace faced many good men with the "raw
'uns," and Mace never damaged his hands.
He waited patiently on every occasion until be
saw an opportunity to hit his opponent just
where he wanted. Mace also knew how to hit,
and as a result he invariably had bis man. no
matter how big, at his mercy without getting
scarcely scratched himself. I contend that Sulli
van. Dempsey and even Mitchell, almostasmuch
as Weir, were deficient of that quality just re
ferred to in Mace. Sullivan broke bis arm on
Cardiff's head in the most stupid fashion. The
injury proved tna Sullivan was attempting a
swinging blow just at a time when he shouldn't
even have dreamt of it. Dempsey acted sim
ilarly with Gallagher. All this shows that
'bad" hands are, as a rule, as much the result
of bad judgment as anything else. A bad
workman will spoil the best of tools.
Abont the Old Timers.
Writing of glove versus bare knuckle fight
ing, Mr. Henry Sampson, of the London Ref
eree, has the following interesting opinions in a
recent issue of his paper: "In the old sporting
drums there were always to.be found three
sorts of performers (1) such as Mace, Brettle,
Langham, Keene, Walker, Holies, Nolan,
Shaw, Lead, Gollagher, Gannon, and others too
numerous to mention in these limits, who were
as good without the gloves as they were with
them. (2.) Such as Sayers, Madden, Cobley,
Hicks, Travers, Dillon and' Reardon, who.
showed better form as fighters than asspar
rers. N. B. And don't you forget it: Some of
those in this second list, though sparring was
not their forte, could spar better than anyone I
know now. (3) Such as were as clever with the
gloves as almost any in the first list, and clev
erer than some, but who had no stomach for
the ring itself, or whose ways in life did not
permit of their entering it professionally.
Among these might be named one Donovan,
who used to show at Shaw's, in Queen's Head
court, Windmill street. Another was (for a
long while) Jack Drew; it was not until he was
old and stale, and bad long been known as one
of the cleverest sparrers in London, that Jack
Drew fought, two fights and won them;
he did not long surve the strange effort;
With these were many another who would
have made the best performers of now. skip,
though, as they never fought, their names have
long been forgotten, and it is no good trying to
give them a spurious celebrity. Then there
was a sort of cross between the three sorts I
have given, as represented by such men as
Crockett, Mos3 (Young Dutch Sam the Sec
ond), and Bendoff, cum multis aliis. These
were as clever as cats with the gloves, and
would try their best to fight; but, somehow or
other, they always had the worst of luck with
the bare knuckles, whenever, that is, they start
ed on any one who could hit hard and stay.
It is not easy to say where a thorough expert in
old-time fighting and sparring would place the
Tylers. Both were as clever without the gloves
as with tbem, and were up to every dodge that
ring practice permits: but Tom's hands were
softer.than most prize fighters' heads, and Bos,
if his good eye got hit hard, was almost help
less. It was not easy to bit that eye hard; still
the task has been accomplished, and must be
reckoned in a summary of this sort. As to
Tom, he would have been absolute champion at
anything near his weight with the new style
two-ounce mufflers." .
In Praise of Baldock.
Mr. Sampson continues: "Analysis is not
always easy if you want to be exact. I have
not mentioned Baldock, nor his dead chum
Cocklin, in any of my lists, chiefly because I
don't know where they would go best Both
were, when I first knew them, really clever
sparrers, both afterward showed fine quality in
the ring, though Cocklin in his first and most
ambitious effort was unsuccessful. But, clever
as they were, I have seen both worsted by men
they could have lulled without the gloves; and
so perforce they must go iuto the second list it
lam to be logical. This reminds mo that one
of the most dexterous yes, and ambidextrous
fellows 1 ever saw with the gloves was Jem
Smith from Brighton, who when tried
in the ring made but a poor and feeble appear
ance. Here is another of the sort who must al
most turn in their graves if there is any way by
which they can learn about these the best of
Ml times for glove performers. But to get
back to Baldock, who must remember Smith,
the Brighton Doptor, even better than I do.
My chief trouble with regard to placing Bal
dock properly is this, that, dropping his fight
ing qualities altogether, there is no one I know
now. among all the vaunted new school, of any-wht-
-e about his weight, who could have lived
with him for points, say, as he was in '59 or '60.
Baldock is still a sort of Jerry-go-Nimble. He
has kept his figure, and wears a pincenez glass,
and is doing well, and, when he does not
give way to excitement unduly, is really
quite the sporting ofter. He could fight
at nine stone when be began, and there
is nothing I should like better Jhan to get Mm
as he was when he fought JackSrooks, and let
him have a go with Mr. S. Baxter, who creates
such a funk now, and who is believed by those
who have only taken boxing on with the
fashion, to be A-per-se, the real genuine
double-distilled and undiluted champion of
champions. If such a trial could be arranged,
I should like to lay a bit of odds on one. and,
believe me, that one wouldn't be S. Baxter.
What is more, remembering Baldock's later
efforts, I shouldn't be without hope If he had
to meet with the gloves either of these later
day wonders, Mr. Toff Wall or Mr. C. Mitchell
Without the gloves big chance would be still
Cat. McCarthy's Victory.
There is, indeed, llttlo to comment on re
garding the battle between the two McCarthys,
the bantams. The contest was so one sided
that all that can be said is: Cal. McCarthy Is
an extraordinary little fellow. It will be diffi
cult to find his peer. PKCiGLE.

part Of the League giants from the start. They

fourth inning, and afterward hiv him at pleas
ure. Nichols made a two-bagger in the third,
but failed to connect with the plate. In the
fourth Miller led off with a single, moved up a
point on Beckley's hit and went to third when

Mr. Maul went to bat with the bases full, and
with a long drive to right brought in Miller

A SEAL PHEN09L
Dlanaeer Barnle Lays Hold of a Wonderful
rSFEClAL TXLXOBAM TO THE BISPATCH.1
Baltimore, April 6. Manager Barnie is wear
ing a smile that spreads from ear to ear. The
wonderful transf ormationwas caused by the dis
covery of very phenomenal pitcher. His name
is Charles Goetz, height 6 feet 2 inches, weight
175 pounds. A commercial traveler picked him
up in Green Castle, Pa., where be had been
fooling the local heavy batteries. The drum
mer brought him to the grounds yesterday aft
ernoon while the men were practicing, and
asked that the countryman be given a trial.
Expecting to have some fun with the green
bom, the Doys prevailed on Barnie to put him
in. He was a little wild at first, but soon stead
led down and put up shoots, drops in and out
curves over the plate in a fashion which fairly
struck the players dumb.
He also pitched a peculiar zig zag ball, which
he called a "whipporwill swoop." He then
went out on first base and captured thrown
balls with a reach not unlike that of Long John
Reilly. He also took a turn with the stick, and
not only solved the curves of the twirlers, but
drove the ball away out to the center field
fence. Barnie saia to-day that he would put
him in against the Pennsylvania University
team next Tuesday. Goetz is about 23 years
old and a bouse painter by trade. Lately he
bad been pitching in Roanoke, Va. Barnie
says his gigantic phenomenon is the swiftest
pitcher be has ever seen. Cunningham, the
kicking pitcher, has come to terms. He sent a
telegram to-day stating that be was on his way
to Baltimore to sign a contract.
Spalding's Baseball Players Arrive in New
New YobKj April 6. Spalding's baseball
teams arrived in the city to-day. They were
met at Sandy Hook by a steamboat having on
board John M. Ward, J. W. Spalding, De Wolf
Hopper, Digby Bell and a large number of
others. The players were taken aboard the re
ception committee's boat and speedily brought
ashore. "Old Man" Anson wept tears of joy
The party were escorted to the Fifth Avenue
Hotel and treated like lords.
Captain Leigh Lynch, one of the managers of
the party, told an interesting story of the trip
to a crowd of eager listeners. Among other
things be said:
"While our trip was an enjoyable one from
almost every point of view, while we had atten
tive audiences everywhere, the audiences In
nearly every case understood nothingabout the
game, and consequently were unable to appre
ciate the best points of the play. I believe
they understood and appreciated the game
better in England than any other country we
visited. You see the gamerof rounders which
they play there gives tbem an idea of what
baseball is, but the idea, I am compelled to ad
mit, is a sort of hazy one. Still we have found
audiences in San Francisco, when we started
out on our tour, who understood less about our
game than English audiences."
"In what country was our game least under
"Well, I never thought of trying to find out,
but I would say that it was less understood In
Italy than anywhere else. I think the game
will now be generally taken up, at least in the
British isles. If it is not. another tour of
American ball players would not help it."
The Carnegie Org-nnlze.
N. A. Vandevort, manager of the Carnegie
Baseball Club, submits the following list of

toward the formation of an athletic club in the
East End, which is claimed will supply a want
in that direction. Many names have already
been received and everyone is talking enthusi

The interim committee appointed is working
hard and pushing forward matters, and it is
expected that in the course of a month all pre

as necessity requires and the members wish:
Baseball, cricket (with f nil opportunity of ex
celling in the popular English game), lawn
tennis, football, Indian club and dumb bell ex
ercises, running, throwing the hammer, etc.,
The football game will be a specialty in the
cooler weater, and as there will be in the club
several gentlemen who were at; one time promi
nent players in Scotch clubs, the "home of
football," members can rely on being trained to
play the game as it should be played!
Cricket will also be a distinctive feature, and
it is intended that members will have ample
opportunity to judge of the merits of the game.
Of course our great American game will not
suffer by any means. In all, it is hoped, by
uniting In a grand combination of sports, to
mae a very successful and popular organiza
tion. In the meantime, parties desiring informa

INTERESTING TO HORSEMEN.
The Question of What Is an Unsound Horse
What constitutes an unsound horse or other
animal? Perhaps the best definition is that
given by an English judge, a good many years
ago, and which has been often quoted In the
courts since: If at the time of the sale the
horse has any disease which either does
diminish the natural usefulness of the animal
so as to make him less capable of work of any
description, or which in its ordinary progress
will diminish the natural usefulness of the
animal, or if the horse has either from disease
or accident undergone any alteration of struc
ture that either actually does at the time, or In
its ordinary effects will, diminish the natural
usefulness of the horse, such horse is unsound.
It is held by the English courts, and gener
ally In this country, that a warranty of sound
ness is broken if the animal had any infirmity
which rendered him less fit for present service;
that it is not necesssary that the disorder
should be permanent or Incurable. In Massa
chusetts, however, the supreme Court has said
that lameness, if only accidental and tempora
rily, would not be a breach of. warranty, and
it Is probable the law that a temporary and
curable trouble, although existing at the
time of sale, if it does not injure the
animal for present service, Is not un
soundness. From what has been said
above it will be seen that many things which
diminish the value of an animal do not make it
unsound. Balking, backing, biting, shying,
running away, kicking, etc., are vices in a
horse which are not covered by a warranty of
freedomfrom vice. It has been argued both in
medical books and in the courts whether crib
bing is an unsoundness or only a bad habit. It
has been decided that if the cribbing has af
fected bis health and condition so that the
horse is less fit for present service the animal
is unsound. It Is also claimed that the habit,
if confirmed, is the indication of disease such
as will constitute unsoundness. Horseman.

An Interesting Steeplechase Among Some
English M. P.'s.
rBT CABLE TO THE DISPATCH. 1
London, April & iCopyright A crowd of
members of Parliament and their friends as
sembled at Buckingham, this afternoon, to
witness the Parliamentary point-to-point
steeplechase. There were 20 entries, each pay

riders in the House preferring the counter at
traction of the Prince of Wales stakes at Lei

a stiff country, the ditches being especially dif
ficult. Tbe competitors averaged 222 pounds
weight and each rode his own hunter. Lord
Chesbam acted as host and starter, and Vis
count Newark and Lord Henry Bentinck were
A good deal of money was laid upon tbem.
The favorites, however, were nowhere. Most
of the honorable members came to grief at a
14-f eet hedged ditch, near the winning post,
but Cyril Flower, the popular LiceraV. whip,
appropriately riding a horse named Home
Rule, took it in splendid style and won half a
length in front of Elliott Lees, the Conserva

rfPICIAL TELEGBAM TO,Tni DISFATCH.1
London, April a Copyright. The race
for the Prince of 'Wales stakes at Leicester
this afternoon was the biggest thing of its
kind on record -in England. The stake, was
11,000, being a thousand more than the
famous Eclipse stakes and twice as much as
the average Derby stakes. The Prince of
Wales and a big crowd of notables were on the
grand stand, and quite 50.000 were betted
on the course alone.
Donovanjthe favorite for this year's Derby,
was made the favorite at 0 to 4 on, Pioneer
coming next, with odds of 100 to 15, and Gay
Hampton 100 to 12. Enormous interest was
taken in the race, and here in London Fleet
street was blocked by crowds of sporting men
awaiting the result. There were 17 starters
and the lot were got off at the first attempt.
It was a fine race until within a quarter of a
mile from home, when Donovan forged ahead,
and amid prodigious excitement and enthusi
asm won as he liked by three lengths. Pioneer
second and Mintbe. a rank outsider, third.
The distance was a few yards over a mile and
it was covered in 1:543-5. The bookmakers
have been very baldly bit.

NATURAL GAS' METER.
Safe, Accurate, Durable, Eco
nomical and Noiseless.
Over 1,000 already in use in Pittsburg and
vicinity, giving perfect satisfaction to the con
sumers and the gas companies.
This is the only eas meter manufactured
that will resist any pressure that can be ad
mitted, and, at the same time, be relied upon
to measure natural gas accurately.
It is of superior mechanical design and
workmanship, and will last longer in use than
any other meter.
This meter is constructed entirely of metal,
and no part of it can in any way be injured or
impaired by the action of the gas.
It is so constructed that it Is not liable to get
out of order: the moving parts are almost In
perfect equilibrium, requiring a pressure of
less than one-hundredth of a pound to do the
work of measuring the minimum; and it will
likewise measure the maximum quantity of
gas, or its full capacity, at high or varying
pressures, without any readjustment of the
parts.' Every revolution discharges a certain
quantity of gas, and the measurement Is en
tirely exact, whether tbe quantity passing
through is at the rate of 1 cubic foot or 1,000
cubic feet per hour. With this great range of
capacity, it is at the same time safe, durable
and entirely noiseless in its operations.
Consumers will readily appreciate the advan
tages this meter enables them to secure. All
who are desirous to economize in tbe use of
gas, and pay for just what they use, can now
do so, instead of being obliged to pay a certain
sum per month, or per annum, which precludes
any opportunity to realize the benefits which
should result from a careful and economical
use of the gas.
All bouse meters are tested at the works to a
pressure of 20 pounds per square inch or, over
80 times the pressure at which tbe gas is usu

BY v MANAGER WILT
BENEFIT OFTHE SICK.
Healing Without Medicine.
The public healing of the sick bytheDrs.
Smith during the oast four weeks has created
universal interested isbeingrecognlzed by the
bestclassof citizens in a substantial manner.
Mr. E. D. Wilt, Lessee and Manager of tbe
Grand Opera House, recognizing the great
good the Drs. Smith are doing, kindlytendered
them the use of the Grand Opera House for
the benefit of the sick poor. The Drs. Smith
will therefore change from Imperial Hall to
the Grand Opera House next MONDAY
MORNING. APRIL 8. The Drs. Smith will
publicly heal the sick in the Grand Opera
House every morning from 10 to 11 o'clock,
free ft charge! or two or three weeks.
The most wonderful exhibition of healing
the sick by the laying on of bands ever wit.
nessed in the city of Pittsburg is being don
by the Drs. Smith.
The strange and mysterious power these men
Sossess is not easily explained. Hundreds of
ivallds, suffering from all manner of disease,
may be seen at the hall every morning, seeking
the powerful aid and mighty touch of Drs.
Smith. Tumors, swollen joints, contracted
joints, sciatica, rheumatism and pain of every
description disappear as if by magic by the
touch of their hands. A man who had lost an
arm from a pistol shot, and who suffered from
paralysis of the right side in consequence, hob
bled upon the stage a few mornings ago. Ha
was deaf in one ear and his speech was so
affected from a paralyzed condition of the
vocal cords that it was difficult to understand
what he bad to say. He had also partially lost
the sight of one of his eyes. Tbe doctors passed
their hands over him tor a few moments and
then ordered him to arise and walk. To the
great astonishment of all present he arose
from his chair and ran around the stage, shout
ing: "I am cured; they have cured me; I can
hear and see, thank God!"
The doctor treated an old lady wbo had suf
fered from spinal irritation and nervous ex
haustion, who stated she had not been able for
nine years to sit in an ordinary chair or walk
without assistance. After the doctor passed
his hand a few times over her spine and the
region of ber heart, she exclaimed with aston
ishment: "It is tbe work of the Lord! I am
surely cured!" and she walked about the stage
blessing the doctor and talking about her won
derful restoration to health, and tbe audience
joined her in demonstrative cheers. Remember
that next Monday morning the doctors will
change from Imperial Hall to the Grand Opera.
House on Fifth avenue, where they will pub
licly heal tbe sick from 10 to U o'clock, tree of
charge, for the next two weeks. They invite
everybody to go to the Grand Opera House
and listen to their lectures and witness the
cures they perform simply by the laying on of
Many diseases of months and even years
standing are cured in a short time, while others
may require treatment for weeks. The doc
tors give no medicine except in constitutional
diseases, which, in connection with their pecu
liar magnetic operation, accelerate a perfect
and radical cure. There is great credit due
Drs. Smith for the handsome manner In which,
they speak of other physicians. They do not
claim to know everything or cure everybody,
for there are many diseases beyond the reach
of human aid. The Dr. is located at 02 Pens,
avenue, where those who are able to pay ma;
go from 9 A. it to 7 P. sr. Consultation is free,
and admission to the Grand Opera House it
also free. Everybody should go to the Opera
House and judge for themselves. Letters o
inquiry must contain two stamps. ap4-77 .
