Farmer Baraa HmmSj tn Meet Ath.rtea
I adn tk RnlM.
Farmer Martin Barns, champion
wrestler of the world. Las been Leard
from in reply to the challenge issued
by Ed Atherton. of Cuba, X. Y., and
is ready to meet the latter under the
rules of wrestling. In the articles of
agreement prepared by the Cuban be
specifies that three points down
i-hould be essential to consider a fail.
The farmer objects to this, but is
willing to wrestle under the rales
which govern such matters. This
morning the following came to Tea
Asgcs from Mr. Burns, who is now
ia Cbicago after a tour of Iowa, dur
ing wbica he has been giving wreetl
Chicago. Dec. 3. Editor of The
Argus: I have received the articles
of agreement that Mr. Atherton sent
yon. Now I wish to state that the
rules of wrestling provide that two
points down shall contitute a fall.
Botb the American and English rnles
so stipulate. So I wish to state that
I will wrestle Mr. Atherton two
points down, best three in .five, for
f2-50 or $500, and am reidv to sga
articles tu that effect any time.

Speaking of this brilliant pecta
cle which comes to the Grand cpoa
house in Divenpiri Sunday niat,
the Chicago later-Ocean recently
saiJ: It was si expectant throng
that gathered into the four walls of
the llayniarket last evening, fend
severely tcxed its capacity in order
to ace the last edition of Charles H.
Yale's mjtgEificent epecracle, Tbe
Twelve Tnuptalions.' Thre was
not the slightest thing thai remind
ono of this play's former presenta
tion in this city. As far as the title
i concerned, any other name would
have answered as well, as the piece
has no bearing on the name. The
cotcpatiy is composed of some seven
ty or eighty people, particularly
strong with its comedians, and with
a dramatic company far above the
average; also a pantomimic troupe
who are not only clever, but artistic.
The scenery, of which there is an
abundance, is beautifully painted,
and with the various lights, is shown
to be very effective. The ballets are
beautifully costnmed. while the
dancers are young, pretty and grace
ful. The specialty features are num
erous, and are carried ail through
the play, and the dancing of the
premieres is unusually good."

Jay a Doctor Now.
Jay Andrews, the favori'e tosstr
on the Rock Island-Moline 1831
team, has probably played his last
professional ball. Here is what the
Des Moines KecorJ says:
"Jay Andrews is now in Washing,
ton. 111. He expected to again enter
Rush Medical college this winter,
but business detained him until afer
the term had been well started. For
his own satisfaction a week or so ago
he decided to take a medical exami
nation before the state board. This
he did and was last week informed
that his tITjrt had been successful.
Jay has now been declared compe
tent to hang oct his shingle as a fall
fledged physicisu. He will doubt
less do this. At present he is ofii
cing with an elderly physician, whom
he often helps in his prectice. and
now will perhaps accept a partner
ship." Tha Wbola tttory

Many a man fails in business be
cause of his physical inability t j at

wakes up acd looks iquarely a. him-
se.i ana nis aaatrs be will brak off
those habits that weaken bis body
and prevent him from pushing his
plans to a successful irsu.
Tobaccu and c ffee e em so harm
less that a man feels tbt they can
not hurt him seriously, and for that
reason sticks to them day after rtav
until his nerves gle out and a long
oerioa oi nervous prostration sets in.
While a man issick his business roes
to well, experience shows that it
cton t go right, and that a sick spell
is a wonderfully expersire invest
ment. CJuit the p -Uonous habits, and na
ture will el .wly rebuild the broken
rystem without the uof medicines.
