"New York. but recently the Mecca cf

the sport of the 'ectuared circle.'
"And why has this COMP to pass?
"The answer is easy. S.Smply because
these modern gladiators could not or
would not believe that a fighter's best
stoek in teaSe is to be on the level'.
-Their greed for gold robbed thern of

get the money.' L.ittle heed did they pay
to the manner of the getting. No trick

them too low. provided it came arm in

Owners of Horses Preseta Them to
Their Trainer
Lexington, Ky., Jan. 2.The gift of
the Miller & Sibley trotting holdings,
consisting of 21 head of horses, to Chas.
Marvin develops the fact that Marvin
-has been receiving more from the firm
than Sibley was making in congress.The
trainer's retainer was $5,000 a year and
in addition he received a percentage of
winnings, which was guaranteed to be
at least $2,500.
Cecellan. 2:,22, and a band of six brood
mares highly bred, are included in the
gift. The good campaigner, Pattlesign,
2:13,-i, heads the horses in training, ard
there is a good lot of youngsters coming
on from which Marvin expects to devel -
op stake winners. Marvin will have the
use of Ashland Park farm for two yeats,
when the lease held by Miller & Sibley
wiil expire. Marvin has ridden behind
more wozlds, record performers than
any living man, and his reputation is
national. The gift of Miller & Sibley is
considered the equivalent of $25,000 by
horsemen who are in a position to know
the value of the animals transferred.
Miller & Sibley first attempted to es
tablish a breeding farm in Pennsylvania,
but, failing-,brought their horses to Ken
tucky about ten years ago. Since 1891
'Marvin has been in their employ. They
were heavy buyers of Palo Alto stock,
and their Pennsylvania place,was known
as the Palo Alto of the East. Their re

of universal regret among horsemen
Will Commence at Fair Grounds on
llay 11, With Kin lock Park Later.
St Louts, Jan. 2.--Racing will be re
sumed at the St Louis fair grounds 03
May 11, to continue for 90 days, the
it fixed by the :Missouri breeders' law for
any single track. Although the Turf con
gress permits the St. Louis course to be
open on April 1, the state law does not.
It fixes the opening of the season at
April 15, and the close at November 1.
Thie gives St. Louis 171 days of actual
racing. Between April 15 and May 11,
when the fair g-rounds opens, it is con
sidered likely that Kin loch park will
have a season of 23 days. If the Ti IlesAdler-Cell
syndicate trark completel
by the end of the fair grounds season.
and the ICinloch people seek to resume
at that time. a fight between it and the
syndicate would undoubtedly result.
trust Accept Terms of London Sport
ing Club by January 5. -
New York, Jan. 2.--The National
Sporting club of London has decided to
give McGovern until January 5 in order
to make up his mind whether or not he
will tight EPn Jordan If at the end of
that time Terry does not answer, the
feathervvelght champion never will get
another chance to fight Jordan or any
one else at that club.
"'Under no circumstances will the
purse be increased," said Dr. Ordway,
the National club's representative. "The
club will give the boys a- purse of $3,-
750, with liberal expenses to McGovern.
If McGovern does not come to the
scratch by January 5 he never will get
a chance to fight at the National club."
Kid Broad's manager said loday that
he had received Etn offer of $5,000 to
meet McGovern at San Francisco dur
ing t,he first week of February. The
National Athletic club, it is said, is
ready to hang' up an Incentive. Broad
never expected that he would get this
much money, and immediately accept
ed. He wired the National people to
send on the articles to Louisville, where
Broad will train for Ills battle with
Dave Sullivan.

a representative for McGovern. He

to meet any other representative not
connected with the Tattersall's Athletic

From Good Words.1
Ons day about the year 1818 Georae
Crulkshank was passing Newgate on his
wa,y to the exchange, when, seeing a
crowd collected, he went forward to
learn what was the matter and saw that
it was tbe execution of several men and
women. He w-as horrified at the specta
cle, and on inquiring learned that the
woman was being' hanged for passing
counterfeit one pound notes. lie learned
also that this punishment was quite a
coramon thing, even though the poor
wretches often sinned in ignorance, being'
the dupes of men who sent them to buy
some trifle and return the cha,nge to them.
Wrung with pity and shame, Crulkshank

He had just finished this when his pub

to have it for publication. So Crnikshank

convention of Republican senators and
house members held last night in the

January 16. Three of those present were
Messrs. Hill 8,nd Tiffany of Susgehanna,
county and McPherson of Adams. who
had previously absented themselves
from the house caucus and voted with
the Democrats for General KcKAnes for
speaker. Mr. Beaver of Junia,ta, who
voted for Mr. Hall far speaker, was
present, but (lid not answer to his name.
It was stated that he will abide by the
caucus. Thompson of Center and Wal
deman of Montgomery, who are de

by their colleagues ta Mr. Quay. This
apparently gives Mr. Quay 126 of the
127 necessarY to a. choice. The other ab

the house and are classed as anti-QuaY
On the balloting' Mr. Quay received
the votes of 26 senators and 93 members

Is Often the Reef Cause of a Sour
That the condition of the digestive or
gans has a marked effect upon the char
acter or disposition is a truism as ol4:1 as
the hills. Old Ben Johnson wisely said
"the pleasure of living depends upon the
liver" and it is a fact which none may
dispute that a sunny disposition more
often results from a healthy digestion
than from any other cause.
Acid dyspepsia, commonly called sour
stomach or heartburn, is caused by slow
digestion of food; instead of being
promptly digested and converted into
blood, bone and muscle, it lies in the
stomach for hours, fermenting and de
caying, creating gases which cause pres
sure en the lungs and heart, short
breafh and general discomfort and irri
tation. Such half digested food is indeed pee
nourishment for the body, brain a,nd
nerves and the result Is shown in irHta
ble telatpers, unaccountable headaches
and that depressing condition usually
called the "blues" but how quickly al:
these disappear when appetite and di
gestion are restored.
Laxative medicines only irritate the
already irritated stomach and bowels
and have no effect upon actual digestion
of food.
The sensible course to follow is to
make use of simple natural digestive
like Stuart's Dyspepsia. Tablets after
-meals until the stomach has a chance to
The natural digestives which every
healthy stomach contains are peptones,

the trouble begins: the reason Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets are so valuable are!
successful in curing stomach troubles is
because they contain, in a pleasant coa
contrated tablet form all these absolute
ly necessary essentials for perfect diges
tion and assimilation of food.
Henry Kirkpatrick of Lawrence, Mass.
says: "Men and wemen 'w-hose occupa
tion precludes an active out door life
should make it a daily practice to 'LI t4
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets after meals,
I have done so myself and I know pose
tively that I owe my present health and
vigor to their daily use.
"From the time I was 22 wheti

scarcely knew what it was to be free

by irregularity and palpitation of tha

after I began using Stuart's Dyspepsia
Tablets and I can eat my meals with
relish and satisfaction which I had not
known since I was a growing boy,"
The success and popularity of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets is enormous, but it I
deserved, and every druggist in the Uni
