the same theme as that chosen last night,
there is not a hall in the city capable cf
holding one-half of the crowd. He came
to us unknown, but his name will remain
long in the memories of all who heard
him, and his lecture will be remembered

JOHN L. SULLIVAN.
John L. Sullivan, the pugilist,
told us once that it is a great
mistake to train very much for
phvt-i al contest. All h t-ver
did to get himself in a condi
tion of perfect health, was to
get the whisky out of him, then
he had plenty of reserve power;
whereas a person who has been
trained according to rule, has
little or no reserve force. His
nervous system is strained to
the point of exhaustion before
he enters the ring That this
is true ie shown from the fact
that most pugilists die from
lung trouble John C. Heenan
