Dougherty Loses Three Straight
Falls to Burns.
An F.xeltlnKl'onteat at Turner Hall on
Hatnrday X Is lit Ths Sparring
Moats The Biz Itork. In-vlnrlblew
Turner hall was well filled on Stur
day night by lovers of athletics to wit
ness the wrestling match between "Far
mer" Burns ot Big Rock Iowa, the cham
pion middle-weight wrestler of the world,
and Hugh Dougherty of Eugland for
$ 50 a side aiid entire gate receipts. The
match was catch-as-catchcan, two points
down, no holds barred, beet three in five
falls, Police Gazette rules governing the
Pete O'Day of Davenport, was master
or ceremonies, and be first introduced
Frank Brady and Johnny McGee, who
sparred three rounds with honors about
even. Then came auother 3-round con
test between Tom Williams and Johnny
Glass with about the same result. A
glove contest between Jack Feeney of
Davenport, and Joe Flaherty, the late
vanquisher of Ed Sheppard had been ar
ranged, but as the latter still carries a
sore hand fromghis encounter with the
colored lad it was declared off. Instead
of this a 3-round contest with the gloves
for points between Pete and Johnny
O'Day occuirtd, Jit being the best of the
evening, being quite spirited at times.
At the conclusion of this tho two
wrestlers made their appearance, Burns
being seconded by Johnny Gipson and
Dougherty by Johnny Cowden, Joe Fla
herty being chosen time keeper . and Jim
Sweeney of Davenport referee.
"Farmer" Burns, as usual, was in fine
condition, making a better appearance
when stripped, if anything than ever
before, his fine pbyeique showing him
plainly to be a giant in strength and en
Dougherty, his opponent, is also of
fine build. Though not quite as tall as
the farmer champion, he outweighs him
from 3 to 10 pounds. Great bunches of
muscle stand out all over his back and
neck, and when he made bis appearance
many in Ibe crowd were of the opinion
that he would give Burns the hardest
tussle be eyer had about here.
In tLe first bout it looked as though it
was going to be a long and terrible etrug
gle, both meu showing exceptional abil
ity. Burns was nearly all the time the
aggressor. Time and again he got his
man in what seemed to be a tight place,
but with an extraordinary effort Dough
erty would ss easily get out. Half and
full Nelsons, hip and hammer locks
were gained and lost in quick succession.
Dizzy head spins and bridging were
common features. Dougherty's clever
work at the latter being particularly no
ticeable. Burns toward the last rushed
his man, giviug him some quick flying
I. lis, which he afterward claimed should
have been given him by the referee, lie
finally got a half Nelson, forcing Dough
erty's shoulders to the floor, the time be
ing 16 minutes.
The second fall was won by the farmer
also in less time than the first, though
both men worked like Trojans, and each
showing himself to be skilled in the
English, French and American style of
wrestling, both men being surprised at
the other's acquaintance with it. In
this bout Burns showed himself to have
the best wind, though bo.h were drip
ping with perspiration and were scarcely
able to retain any holds they secured.
Burns finally won the fall in 11 minutes
and 30 seconds.
He also won the third after only
being 30 seconds on the
carpet, having by chance se
cured a half Nelson and double cross
lock pinning Dougherty's shoulders
down. This ended the congest the bet

Catarrn Can't be Cared
with local applications, as they cannot
reach the seat of the disease. Catarrh is
a blood or constitutional disease, and in
order to cure it you have to take internal
remedies. HiU'h Catarrh cure is taken
internally, and acts directly on tbe blood
and mucous surfaces. Hall's Catarrh
Cure is no quack medicine. It was pre
scribed by one of the best physicians in
this couatry for years; and is a regular
prescriotion. It is composed of the best
tonics known, combined with tbe best
blood purifiers, acting directly on the
mucous surfaces. Tho perfect combina
tion of tbe two ingredients is what pro
duces such wonderful results in curing
catarrh. Send for testimonials free.

THE COURSE OF CHOLERA.
The Origin of the Flag-tie Can Always be
Traced to Bengal, IU Birthplace--Acid
Again as Prevention.
In view of tbe fact that Asiatic cholera
is now hovering along tbe shoes of this
country, and none can tell how soon it
may effect a landing here, a paper recent
ly prepared by Prof. William G. Eggles
ton of Peoria, has a peculiar interest for
all who are giving any thought to the
disease. From Prof. Eggleston's inves
tigations of the matter he has come to
the conclusion that no matter in what
part of tbe world cholera may be found,
its origin can always be traced back to
one place. Bengal is its birthplace, and
there alone is it always to be found.
When it spreads itself beyond that prov
ince its presence in outside countries is
directly traceable to Mohammedan and
Hindoo pilgrimages to Mecca and other
sacred shrines of tbe devotees of these
From Bengal it makes its way by two
routes by way of Calcutta and tbe
Ganges to the sacred city of Hurdwar
and thence by the direct land route to
the Caspian and Black seas, on the
Russian frontier. The second route is
from Bengal to Bombay and thence to
Mecca. After every outbreak of tl e
scoutge the civilized world is more or lets
in danger for a period of five years. At
least that is the average time it has taken
to run its course in previous great out
breaks; but, as sanita-y science and the
knowledge of the disease have been
making rapid progress of late years, it
may be that tbe experts who are now
fighting it may be able to cut short i's
career and render it much less harmful
than before. So far cholera has never
spread itself beyond the confines of its
habitat by the direct water route from
India through the Suez Canal.
In Prof. Eggleston's opinion it is be
yond the range of human possibility to
put India in good sanitary condition in
any reasonable time, and to make the
pi'.grims from that country observe
proper rules of hygiene and cleanliness
would require two soldiers to each pil
grim. Tbe most riotous imagination
could scarcely exaggerate the filth of
India and Egypt. The Hindoo and Mo
hommedan pilgrims use the same water
in which they have washed themselves
and their clothes for drinking and cook
ing purposes. Such people are scarcely
ripe for treatment by mortd suasion, and
it is even questionable if they couJd be
forced at the point of a bayonet to adopt
the hygienic habits of an enlightened
civilization. Chicago Post.
Dr. Rtilly, secretary of the Illinois
stale board of health, was recently shown
an editorial in a Chicago paper based on
the recommendation of the usa of sul
phuric acid as a preventive of Asiatic
cholera, and in which it is asked: "Would
it not be well, therefore, for the board of
health to investigate its efficacy, and
make a public statement?' As concern
ing the foundation for this recommenda
tion. Dr. lieilly took down a fat octavo
volume labeled. Cholera Epidemic of
1875 in the Uoiied States," and read
therefrom as follows:
"Meanwhile both passengers and
crew should be put upon a ruiner&l acid
regimen, with a view of establishing an
acid diathesis of the system, or as nearly
so as may be. Sulphuric acid lemonade
should be serred out regularly under the
supervision of an officer clothed with
authority to see that no one shirks ita
And agsin from the same volume: "It
may bo alleged that in tbe foregoing
pages too great stress has been laid upon
the acid prophylaxis of cholera to the
exclusion of all others; but the culmina
tivo evidence of the experience of the last
60 years warrants the ground here taken.
Beginning with the year 1814 cholera
literature down to the present time
abounds in proofs clinical, physiologi
cal, pathological and meteroligical of
the efficacy of sulphuric acid, and there
ran be but little doubt that we possess in
the mineral acid a certain means of pro
phylaxis against cholera. "Prophylaxis"
it was here explained, means prevention.
