JEFFRIES BESTS CORBET-.
Thouga Janies J. Cjrbott wae faitly
knocked out in the twe-tj-'hird round
oi tbe heavyweight championship fight
at Coney Island, N. Y., ia*t niftht, und
tier.by failed to wrest the honors from
J rimes J. Jeffries, wbo lauded tbe de?
ciding pinch, tiie tormer champion <!??
montMrated to the crowd of nearly 1(1,
000 spett ?tors that he is tbe most ex?
pel t boxer in the world. He also
proved lhat he is game t) tbe core, and
that if he had met Jeffries when be
whipped Sullivan the present champion
might bave been beaten.
As it wan, Corbett proved t) be a big
??nrprise. Rated by critics all over the
?-?u try ne a hack number snd ngunl
ed ?? such by tbe public, Corbett suc?
ceeded in regaining much of his old
time form by diligent ?raining, aad
when he got itti the ring he wir?
new man to many who had seen bim
li-ht Sharkey Al th. L-nox Club a year
??.ico. ?a point of boxiog skill, general?
ship, blows of every descripion, and
epeed, Corbett, whilo be lasted, made
Jeffrie* look like a lumbering amateur.
But J? ffriea bnd tbe strength to star d
all tbe lapid jab?*) tba: were fired into
his face, even though tat y drew tbe
b od from hi-i Dose acd mouth. Then,
when Corbett began to tire, tbe big
boil rmtker, with trem?-ndom ?___?.,
?voie bim down and finally drop.?*-?!
him with a l.ll-naod punch od the j ??.
Tbe knockout came unexpectedly.
Ic was the result of constant horiog
tactic-. Jtffriiebnd tried for tweoiy
two rounds just Much a blow, but bnd
misa? d bis man t me and time agaiu,
oat with bulldog tenacity and perse
veranee tiie cbamplOD finally succeeded,
.nd wben Corbett got this blow be was
.?ic to bleep beyond any question of
doubt. It was tbe old story of a ma?.?
uiticent boxer meetiog a ruggtd, itiiit
cular heavy h t*er, capable ot tiking all
Kinds of punishments in order to get iu
a decisive smash.
Corbetl showed one weakness. Tbat
was inability to bit with tbe power of
Fit-Simmons and Sharks**. He gotto
Jetlries ottener and better than either
ol these pugiliste did, but his blows, be?
yond bruising the champion's eyes,
nose aod moutb, did not beat bim
Tfiere was just one point in the fight
where Corbett came near winning. Tba?
waa in tbe ninth round, when, witb a
grand rally of swinge, he caught Je fi"? ?es
an the jaw and actually bad ibe big man
-daggering. But Jeffries recovered so
quickly from the force of tbe blow that
when the round ended Corbett had to
begin all over again.
In tbe nineteenth round Jeffries, who
wae ru-bing harder and faster in evert
round, scored a knockdown. Tbat wa??
the beginning of the end, (or io tn<
twentietb Corbett, witb the :dea of stay?
ing the limit, ran ho much around tb??
ring tbat for the Brat time einoe the men
put up tbeir hands, he was biased. Jef?
fries was sent out to eet'-le the job in
tbe twenty-first and twenty-?leconti
rounds, but Corbett's ability to keep
away made it impossible to accomplish
that feat; but in the twenty-third J I
fries did tho trick and r. tai ? ed th.
championship. Had tbe bout gone the
limit tbe decision could have been ?
draw witb fairnot-s to both men.
Fight ent.usi-sts bega, ti arrive al
the Inland in twos and threes early in
the afternoon. All of the aborting n
r-ott?? wero opened to receive tbem, as
well as every other dollar-making con?
cern which will do bueinee. during tbe
Former Champion Bob Fitz-imroons
was among the early arrivali?. He seid
that he expected the former champio-t
to defeat the boilermaker. William A.
Brsdy, manager of Jeffrie??, first said
JefiriPB would win in four round-?, and
later said one round wonld be sufficient.
The hig 6?ht*T8 got to tbe inland early
in tbe day. Both exprewied themselves
as confident es to the outcome.
Tbe crowd began to pour into the
arena as soon as tbe doors were opened
ut 7 o'clock, but the real hot sport?* did
not begin to come in notil rather late.
There was not much betting when
the crowd began to fill up tbe house.
Even money on Corbett staying fifteen
rounds was thought to be a good bet
either way, buta number of speculators
and bookmakers were not willing to
extend tbe time limit over 12 rounds.
There were 6,000 people to the build?
ing to witness the fight.
Prevented a Tr.aj.edy.
Timely information given Mrs. Qeo.
Long, of New Strait?ville, Ohio, pre?
vented a dreadful tragedy and saved
two lives. A frightful cough had long
kept her awake every night. She had
tried many remedies and doctors, but
steadily grew worse until urged to try
Dr. King . New Deoovery. One bot?
tle wholly cured her, and she writes
this marvelous medioioe r-urod Mr.
Long of a severe attack cf Pneumonia.

matchless merit of this grand remedy

Yes, August Flower still baa the
largest -?ale of any medic?nelo the civi?
lized world. Your mothers and grand
mothers never thought of using any?
thing else for Indigestion or Biliout?
neee?. Doctors were scarce, and they
seldom heard of Appendicite, Nervous
Prostration or Heart failure, etc. They
used August Flower to clean out tbe
system and stop fermentation of undi?
gested food, regulate tbe action of tbe
liver, hum?llale tbe nervous and organic
action of the system, and that is all
tbey took when feeling dull and bad
with headaches and other aches. You
only need a few doses of Green's

you satisfied there is nothing serious
the matter with you. For sale by

?? Ancient Belief.
The ancients believed that rheuma
t sm was tbe work of a demon within a
man. Any one wbo has had an attack
of ?-??tic or iufitmatory rheumatism ?vili
agree that the infliction Is demoniac
enough to warrant the belief. It has
never been claimed tbat Chamberlain's
I'm ? Balm would oast out demons, but
it will cure rheumatism, and hundreds
bear testimony to tbe truth of this
statement. Ono application relieves the
pain, and tbis quick relief which it
affords is alone worth many times its
cost. For sale hy all druggists.
