"1 had been suffering with lung trouble
far some time before I became discour
aged 3iy cough was severe; my ex
pectoration profuse, and 1 was reduced to
about US pounds, when I inquired of my
physician the Police Surgeon whether
he would allow me to consult Dr. Shade,
the throat and lung specialist. He ob
jected Ty saying that Dr. Shade was an
Imposter and a fraud.
""1 did net Improve; on the contrary, I
was growing weaker and weaker day by
day. So I thought I had better go to Dr.
Shade, which I did.
"I began improving under Dr. Shade's
treatment, and In six months I was al
most a well man.
Today 1 can say my lung trouble is
prefectly cured, and I weigh 176 pounds.

COMIT THUS OF KELLY
The Greatest Ball Player the
Country Ever Saw.
THE McCOY-BONNER BATTLE
TIicj Khl ClinlleiiKitic Champions,
lint Fighting Suelcer.s Chanci', tho
Cult'h .N'cw Catcher, in Jligli Fa
vor With Chicago Funs Promise
of u Season of Groat Cycling.
Mr. Conant. one of the owners of the
Boston club, while in a humorous mood
at the recent gathering at St. Louis, told
an amuhinir story about Mike Kelly.
"There was the greatest ball player this
country has ever .known, said he. "At I
the same time he was an expensive one.
Why, do you kiiow Kelly cost the Bos
ton club1 more'thaif $14,000, exclusive of
salary? First wjc purchased his release
from the Chicago club for $10,000 and later
after the "wind tp ' 9f the Brotherhood
fight we put up an additional $4,000 for
Michael Angelo, and in this connection
1 had an interesting experience. Mike
said he wanted $4,003 to pay for a home
he had recently purchased, and we ad
vanced him the money. He came to Bos
ton to sign a contract. My partners
were out of the city at the time, and 1
went down town to meet Kelly. 1 found
him at a tavern in company with conge
nial spirits. I spent about half the night
with the party, for I -was afraid Kelly
would get away from us, and I finally
got his signature to a contract. 1 then
paid my bill at the tavern. It included
numerous items for damp goods 'which
Kel and his friends had consumed, and I
think the bill called for something like
$200. As I said, I settled, and took my de
parture. A few days later I had occa
sion to drop in the same tavern, and im
agine my surprise when the clerk pre
sented me with a bill for about $140. I
explained that I had settled my bill be
fore I left the house on the occasion of
my previous visit. The clerk said he
thought the second bill was epiite regular,
but I couldn't see it that way. The pro
prietor was called In. He looked at the
bill and said: "Why that's regular enough,
Bill.1 I asked him to explain, and he did
so by saying: You settled all right the
other night, hut you evidently forgot that
you neglected to order refreshments cut
off from Kelly and his friends. This bill
Is for the beverages furnished Kel and
his party after you left. They had a real
pleasant night, celebrating Mike's return
to Boston.' There was nothing left for
me to do but settle," concluded Mr. Co
nant. "I tell you Kelly was an expensive
player, but he was a. good one."
The bout between Jack Bonner and Kid
McCoy is now practically a certainty.
This meeting will be of considerable in
terest to "Washingtonians for Bonner is
quite well known here. The alacrity
with which McCoy is taking on easy
things and steering clear of hard ones is
not increasing the "Westerner's popu
larity. Bonner has never done anything
in th ring to entitle him to distinguished
consideration, and McCoy's matching
with him at this line when bigger and
better game is within his grasp does
not speak well for his sincerity. In fact,
McCoy's conduct goes far to substanti
ate the assertion of Mike Connelly, man
ager of Peter vMaher, whi claims that
McCoy told him In a personal interview
that he was "challenging eh:r.rlons but
fighting suckers," and gave this as his
reason for not covering Maher's $5,000,
now in the hands of Sam Austin, to fight
any man In the world. Of course nobody
con criticise Bonner for taking on McCoy.
He has all to gain and nothing to lose,
and withal seems to conscientiously be
lieve that he has a chance to win. He
bases his idea on the former bout he had
with McCoy. He state that, while McCoy
Is clever lie Is not a hard puncher and
that he was little the worse after they
had finished and that he could have gone
on at that rate for a long time. Bonner
has greatly improved in his boxing of
late. He has always been n man of great
endurance and a glutton for punishment,
as was evinced in his early days in the
ring, when as a novice he fought a
thirty-live-round 'draw with Scaldy Bill,
then in his prime.
Men who have been connected with the
sport since its Inception declare that the
prospects are tjiat there will be the most
successful season In the history of cycling
In this country. There are at the present
time more good racing men In this coun
try than for many years. For several
seasons past the crack American riders
have been in the habit of making trips
to Europe to meet the star racers there.
Such a thing was unnecessary this sea
son, for the reason that all the foreign
champions are in America and training
for a campaign in this country.
Lucian Lesna, the Swiss middle and
long-distance champion, who made $1,500
in this country last fall as the loser's end
of match races held in New York and
other places, has announced that he is go
ing to marry and retire from the racing
field. Before he takes this step, howev
er, he Intends to visit Africa and then this
country' again In order to swell his bank
account. Lesna will arrive in this coun
try in time to ride In a number of impor
tant middle distance races during the
The record of winning percentages of
Sloane and Burns, the crack lightweights.
Is an Interesting study. Sloane last year
had the largest average of wins of any
American Jockey. He had 3CD mounts and
won 127 times. This is a percentage of 37.
Burns lias a percentage of a trifle over
37 for the New Orleans winter meeting.
Out of 230 mounts he has ridden 87 win
ners. Thus it will be seen that the two
lads are running a close race and it will
be interesting to note their success this
Notwithstanding the general impression
that cycle racing will be dead in Europe
this year, it seems that some big prizes
are to be offered. First prize values of
$2,000 and $3,000 will he offered on the con
tinent, in short distance races, the first
for a sprint race at Turin and the second
Australia will be represented on the race
paths of this country during the coming
season by two of the speediest riders in
the colonies, Megson and AValne.
The Cincinnati baseball players seem to
be having a regular picnic at San An
tonio. The people of the town seem to
have taken a great fancy to them. Am
usement places of the town are thrown
open to them, and spaghetti suppers and
Mexican dinners are offered them daily.
A visit to an ostriclt farm was one of
the features of entertainment offered
them the other day.

There Is not a father, mother, sister or
brother throughout this country but who
will admit that they have a dread of the
coming winter, and fenr that some of
their family may become a victim of one
of the above dangerous diseases. Yet this
fear can be overcome and this feeling. of
dread changed to one of security and
conlidence if they will accept the evi
dence of thirty-eight hundred doctors and
the testimony of three hundred and
twenty-seven thousand people, who have
adopted the Australian Dry Air Treat

cide. HYOMEI, and the method of apply
ing the same, without the use of danger
ous sprays, douches, atomizers or vapors,
has accomplished more gqod In the way
of preventing and curing these diseases
than all other methods or remedies com
bined, as is shown by the fact that but
forty-nine persons out of tho thousands
upon thousands treated have reported no
benefit received, and the majority of
these were persons in the last'-s'tagcs of
consumption. In the face f such over

that The R. T. Booth Co. claim their

while In training that it will take only
a. short time to get him in condition. He
is pleased with the outlook. He thinks
well of Burns andisays the team should
do well this season. He likes the work
he has seen Chance do. He says the new
man is remarkably fast on the bases and
a good fielder. Whether he can hit or not
he does not know.
The Enquirer .says that "Woods' Is by
far the best base-running catcher the
Cincinnati team has had In years. He
goes down to first on a hit in regular
Elmer Smith style, and can "step" some
when it comes to circling the bases. He
hasn't played in his position yet, so there
is no line to give on his backstop work.
The wrestling bout between Ernest
Roeber-and the Turk, Yousouf, to take
place at Madison Square Garden, on
March 2G, has awakened more interest
among the sporting people than any
event of the sort that has occurred since
the wrestling days of Muldoon. None of
the athletic experts Is willing to make
a guess as to how the match will result.
It Is safe to say, however, that If You
souf is the wonder he is cracked up to
be, he will make short work of Roeber.
According to Col. Hopkins, Dan Cree
don will not be able to enter the ring
again soon possibly never. Hopkins is
credited with the statement that Dan's
left arm Is almost paralyzed from an in
jury received while boxing with Joe
ChoynskI previous to his fight with Mc
Coy. The Louisville players will report for
duty one week from today. Manager
Clarke will at once take them to West
Baden for practice.
The Louisvilles have decided to farm
out Pitcher Stewart. He goes to Detroit.
Ritchey has settled his differences with
the Colonels and will join the team next
The Philadelphia Inquirer predicts that
unless there are a number of big deals
made between now and April 15, the
clubs finishing in the first division will
in all likelihood be Baltimore, Boston,
Cincinnati, New York, AVashlngton. and
Cleveland. The standing of the other
clubs wrll depend altogether on the de
velopment of the new players and the
manner in which the clubs are handled
by their respective managers.
Pitcher Jouett Meekin, New York's
twirler. who has been wintering at his
home in New Albany, is indignant at
what he considers the work of "khock.
ers." Reports have been started that his
pitching arm is dead, and that he has
been undergoing massage treatment to
restore it to service. Meekin denies all
these reports vehemently.
Great things are expected from
George Kelb, the new pitcher of the
Cleveland Club. He has been at Hot
Springs for some'time with the baseball
colony that has been located there, and
reports of his work in exhibition games
are decidedly encouraging. If reports
have not been exaggerated. It is proba
ble that he will be asked to assist Young
and Powell during the early part of the
season, as Tebeau wishes to hold back
Cuppy until all doubts about the sore
arm have been removed.

talk of the looters, was .played last
night in the institute gymnasium and the
Carrolls. surprised the leaders by winning
by the score of 7 to 4.
After the first half it was a game of
see-saw and kept tire large crowd, one
of the largest of the. season, at fever heat
until the last goal was thrown. It was
one of the cleanest; and best all-around,
games played In the National League se
ries. Both sides gave a splendid exhibi
tion of free passing and blocking.
The result of this game tics the two
teams for first place and from now on the
pace will be a hot one. At the end of the
first half the score stood 4 to 1 In favor
of the Carrolls and they looked like easy
winners, but the Cadets were not easily
downed and with only five minutes of
play left in tho last half they tied the
score on a splendid overhand throw from
