Nervous Prostration from whatever cause overwork, dissipation, insomnia, care, worry tends directly to permanentinvalidism or the insane hospital. It is the bane of the present age and of the Ameri can people. In the mad pursuit of monev, men forget health, happiness, everything but business and the ac cumulation of wealth, which, if se cured, becomes valueless, because they have no health with which to enjoy it. The happy possessor of a healthy body never knows he has a body because of any ache or pain, and w ith systematic, reasonable attention to business, invariable rest and recre ation hours, plain, nourishing diet, almost anyone can be well. There are times, however, when there is an unavoidable strain. Use a few doses of 0J to tide over the emergency. It will assist to maintain the well bodv at its normal standard, ami for thif alreadv sick there is nothing better to bm!d uf the constitution and rehabilitate the nervous system.

SHARKEY AFTER ROEBER. Sailor Wants to Try to Stop Wrestler in Six Rounds. New York June 13. Tom Sharkey will In all probability be matched within a few days to meet Ernest Roeber, the champion wrestler, in a limited round bout. According to the conditions Sharkey will be obliged to knock his opponent out before the limit to gain the decision. Sharkey believes he can defeat Roeber In six rounds, but Manager O'Rourke, who evidently has a little more respect for the wrestler's fighting ability than the sailor, wants the bout extended to fifteen rounds. A compromise will I'robably be effected on ten rounds. Roeber and Sharkey were originally matched to meet before the Jeffries Sharkey bout, but Manager Brady said that if the sailor fought Roeber before his match with the champion he would declare his bout off.

Many Horses to Start in Ameri can Derby at Chicago. Lieutenant Gibson Not to Have a Canter in the Event. YET HE IS A FAVORITE Highland Lad Mentioned as a Probable Winner. Eastern Horses to . Struggle Against Western Entries. Chicago, June 13. Judging from the work of the different candidates for the American derby, which will be run at "Washington p irk on June 23, it now looks as if the race will be the greatest that has ever been deckled at that track since Edward Corrigan's chestnut filly Modesty carried off the honors in the initial event some sixteen years ago. Since the run ning of the first event the race has grown to be one of America's biggest events, as well as one of the richest stakes. The winning of this derby is considered to be even a greater honor than is the winning of the Kentucky derby. The running of the Latonia derby re sulted in a walk over for Lieutenant Gib son, but the American derby has never been a race of this kind. On more than one occasion the top heavy favorite was beaten by an outsider, this being the case in 1SS7, when C. H. Todd, at 30 to 1. beat the Baldwin pair, Goliah and Miss Ford, and again in l&M Rey El Santa Anita, carrying the black jacket with a red mal tese cross of the California millionaire, and quoted at 40 to 1 in the books, beat Domino and a field of cracks, among them being such Eastern performers as Sena tor Grady and Dorian. Lieutenant Gibson is a great favorite for this race, but in many cases the favorite does not get the money. In spite of the recent victories of this great colt at Louis ville and his walkover in the Latonia derby, many shrewd horsemen are will ing to wager that he will be beaten in the Washington park race. The question that is mostly asked by the knowing ones around Chicago is: "Whom has Lieutenant Gibson beaten that he should be a big favorite?" Lieutenant Gibson has thus far been very lucky in the fact that he has had horses that rank but little better than selling platers to go against- The fact that he has made a show of his iield dues not count for much in the minds of real students in horse racing. They state that he must mee: and vanquish a race horse of the first class before they will admit that his claim to greatness is based on real foundation. They also claim that sell ing platers, with no claim to any class, ran as fast tis any stake horse over the Louisville course. "Pat" Dunne, who is a shrewd judge of a race horse and who has seen the cnlt run, does nor. think that Lieutenant Gib son is the great colt that he is generally believed to bo. He admits the colt's abil ity to run, but places a question mark on his gameness. Gibson has not run any where but in front this year, and Dunne figures that when some game horse hitches up with him in a drive Lieutenant Gibson will be found among the "also rans." Dunne Is rot alone in his estimate of the eolt, for a well known layer of odds has offered to lay several thousand dol lars that Lieutenant Gibson will not fin ish one. two or three in this big event. In 11, Kingman's career prior to the big race at Washington Park was very much like that of Lieutenant Gibson at the present time. He hail won his races in the south with such ease that a ma jority of the people thought that he was a world beater, and. like Lieutenant Gib son, he had beaten thing. The Ken tuckians we:-e sweet v ver his perform ances and declared that lie naci tne American derby at his mercy. Some of them went so far as to laugh at the rash ness of any man who talked of starting a horse agaJ.nst him. On performance and looks the most for midable contender in the derby is High land Lad. This colt, who was never more than half good at any time last season, has developed wonderfully through the winter. This spring Mr. Scoggan had to go slow with him on account of his growth, but at the latter end of the Louis ville meeting the stable made no secret of its belief that on a fast track High land Lad could take up his weight and go a mile close around the 1:39 mark. He received a prep for the Latonia derby and both Mr. Scoggan and Captain Franklin, the trainer, were quite sanguine that they would have more than an outside chance with Lieutenant Gibson in that event on a fast track. The going, however, was mud dy and eventually it was decided to start neither of the Scoggan pair. 'Highland Iad is now being pointed for the Washington park race, and all that is needed to assure a great contest even between him and IJeutenant Gibson will be a dry, fast track. There is no ques tion as to the class of the big son of Florist. The. only mooted point is as to whether he will go the derby route. Mr. Scoggan thinks that he will. M'GOVEKN A TERROR. Knocks Tommy White Out in Jig Time. New York, June 13. At 8:35 both boys were in the club and immediately pro ceeded to weigh in. Terry stepped on the scale fully clothed and failed to move the beam, but when White's turn came it was found that he was half a pound overweight. McGovern made no objection. Just as the boys were about ready to enter the ring the electric lighting apparatus gave out and for a full hour the building was in total dark ness. The electric apparatus was put in order again and the boys were called to the ring. White was the first to appear. His en trance was scarcely noticed, while Mc Govern, who followed afterward, was loudly applauded. They immediately donned the gloves and were called to the counter to receive their instructions from Referee Johnny White. The Chi cago lad wore black trunks and looked to be in excellent condition, and Terry, who wore pink with a green sash, never appeared to better advantage, Little time was lost and the gong was rung. Terry immediately assumed the aggres sive and was first to land, with a left swing to the neck. White broke ground and tried a left lead, but Terry blocked and White went to a clinch and was cautioned for holding. They broke and Terry was forcing him about the ring when the electric lights again went out after two minutes of fighting. After about ten minutes the lights were again lighted and they were at it again. Terry rushed and landed a left hook that made White sink to the floor. Terry assisted him to his feet and again landed the same blow and followed with both handa. to the body just as the bell rang. Terry went after him like a bull ter rier in the second, and was twice cau tioned for holding. White jabbed Terry's face twice with stiff lefts,- jairing Terry's head, but the champion sent a right to the ribs that made. Tommy bend. Again White landed his left and Terry responded with left to body and then hooked it to the jaw, sending White to the floor. He got up groggy and Terry dropped him again with the same blow just as the bell rang. White came out for the third bad and Terry immediately dropped him with a left on the jaw. He was up at five and went down again with right on body and head. He got to his feet again only to go down. Three times after this White was floored. Each time he arose Terry battered him with right and left to body and head. After the seventh knockdown Johnny White counted the full ten before he could get to his feet and Terry was declared the winner amid, loud .cheers. . . - - SUBPHISED DIXON".

Many of the followers of athletics think Alvin C. Kraenzlein, the Pennsyl vania hurdler and jumper, is the great est athlete the world has ever seen. For years he has been looked upon as wonder, but the recent intercollegiate games at Columbia Field proved his sterling worth. In these games he surpased all for mer records by scoring the largest number of points ever made in the his tory of college athletics by any single competitor. His total number of points was 18, representing three firsts and one second place. The second was made in the broad Jump, and almost all ex perts concede that he would have cap tured that event but for straining a ten don. Kraenzlein Is not a remarkable ath lete in only one line. Every branch of athletic activity seems to claim him as a most apt exponent. The only feature in athletics that he has not followed is distance running. Kraenzlein is 23 years old and is feet 11 inches in height. His legs are re markably long, measuring 35 inches, or exactly half of his height. His weight is but 158 pounds.

Eothen Colt a Favorite For the Coney Island Suburban Saturday. New York, June 13. The book pro gramme of the Coney Island Jockey club leaves a good taste in the mouth. It gives a promise of as brilliant sport as has been seen before on the most picturesque of the race courses in the Coney Island district. Ethelbert's weight in the big handi cap will be 129 pounds, as he has to pick up two pounds extra for his vic tory over Jean Beraud in the special race at Gravesend Kinley Mack incurs a penalty of three pounds for his win in the Brook lyn handicap, bringing his impost to 125 pounds, Kilmarnock, by his Withers victory, incurred eight pounds penalty, making his weight 109 pounds. In pass ing, it may be observed that inasmuch as the penalties are graduated accord ing to the original weight allotted in the case of old horses, a similar plan ought to be adopted with 3-year-olds. For example, Kilmarnock has in this case to take up a penalty altogether cut of proportion to what he has ac complished so far. The field is likely to be very large, principally because 'of the undeniable class of the top weights. Ethelbert. 129; Imp, 12S, and Jean BeraiAl, 127. Outside of these the Brooklyn winnner, Kinley Mack, is almost sure to be a starter, and should Sheepshead Bay's custom ary luck desert him and the track be muddy is more than likely to be the winner. Box, 117; Prince McClug, 117; Rafaello, 113; The Kentuckian. 106; Charentus, 105; Wait Not, 102; Kilmar nock, 109; Survivor, 100; Gulden, 100; Herbert, 96. and Samartian, 95, seem to be the most likely of the others to face the Hag.

Induces an Oklahoma Married Woman to Elope. HIS NOVEL METHOD. Has a Negress Predict Calamity in Any Other Event. Gay Lothario Steals a Horse and Couple Flee. Captured at Arkansas City and Separation Follows. Arkansas City, June 13. Two men of Mulhall, Ok., were in the city yesterday and captured a peddler named Alex Lohmati. One of the men was E. A. Flynn, of whom Lohman bought a horse for $50 at Mulhall, but did not pay for it. He took the horse to Perry and from there wrote and told Flynn that the animal had died. The other man is Paul Kneet, the father of a woman named Ida Lane.Lohman is an Assyrian and has been peddling cheap jewelry around Mulhall for some time. Mrs. Lane was taken back to Mulhall by her father. Lohman went to Ida Lane, who by the way, is a married wo man with one child, a little girl about 4 years of age, and with whom he had fallen desperately in love and proposed that they leave the country. She said she wouldn't go until she had been granted a divorce from her husband. Lohman then went to Perry and after looking over the ground, returned to Mulhall, telling the woman that she could get a divorce at Perry in one day tor $20, but that she would have to be there. Accordingly the two went to Per ry last Thursday. They chanced to be walking about the place and it seems that they talked with an old negro wo man whose specialty is telling fortunes. me peacller proposed that the negro woman tell Mrs. Lane's fortune and it was done. Aftei- taking a lengthy and deliberate look into the past, this for tune teller told Mrs. Lane that it was lucky that she had left Mulhall when she did, for in less than ten minutes la ter her husband went to the house where she resided and was looking for her with the purpose in mind of killing her. A hurried consultation was held and the two runaways, who were accompa nied by the little 4 year old daughter of the woman, decided to come to Arkan sas City. It now develops that Lohman gave the negro woman a dress to tell the story to Mrs. Lane. They came here Thursday night and rented rooms. Flynn. whose horse was sold, took all of the peddler's jewelry and was only restrained from having him arrested by his earnest pleadings. THINKS HE HAS SILVER. Saline County Man Strikes Ore-Bearing Rock in a Well. Salina, June 13. A Saline county man thinks he has found silver. While digging a well in a ravine on his farm near Soldier Cap. on section 32, Washington township, G. E. Holmberg struck silver bearing rock, eleven feet below the surface of the ground. He was unable to proceed with his well digging any further owing to the rocky formation. He sent specimens to the state agricultural college for examina tion, and received word that if the stuff was plentiful he had a rich find in silver. In Mr. Holmberg's opinion there is an abundance of the ore. He also sent specimens to Topeka. Mr. Holm berg says that there are indications of old excavations all along the ravine. "Soldier Cap," as it is called, is one of the most prominent elevations in the southwestern part of the county, and owes its name to its resemblance to the old-fashioned soldier cap.
