My physical condition was such that I had no streng-th and was all run down. The doctors said my kidneys wre not affected, and while 1 Did Not Know I Had Kidney Trouble, I somehow felt certain my kidneys were the cause of mv trouble, My sister. Mrs. t". E.

Swamp-Root, and the address, Binghamton, N. Y. have the slightest symptoms of kidney. OBJECTS TO PASSES. Actress Would Shut Out All Who Hold Season Passes. There was trouble at the Crawford Saturday. There was a weman at the bottom of it. John Griffith and his company, -who have been having a rather bad time financially at tha Kansas theaters where they have been, played "Spartacus, the Gladiator,' as a matineeand "Virginius" at night. "Miss Kathryn Furnell," who in private life is Mrs. John Griffith, in the terms of the profession'"was on the door," meaning that she took the tickets at the entrance for the afternoon per formance. For a woman to be in front is unusual, but Mrs. Griffith was there and v. hat was more she was determined to have her own way and rule both ends of the theater. Just to be :n syle and keep in practice she ranted about the season passes presented at the door. It was really a good thing that there were season passes there as the audience would have been that much smaller had they not been there. So while Mr. Griffith was preparing for a gladltorial combat on the stage his wife was train ing for a combat at night. She an nounced that at the night performance she would refuse admittance to all pass es. Roy Crawford remonstiated with her but she was stubborn. So he called O. T. Crawford to his asssictarce. "The curtain will not go up if you are on the door tonight," announced O. T. Crawford. "I shall take tha tickets," announced Mrs. Griffith. "It is in the contract for our regular ticket taker to do that," said Crawford, "and unless he does it there will be no how." "We'll see," said the wife of the gladi ator. Manager Crawford does not believe that "when a woman will Bhe will," and he stuck to his ultimatum. At the usual time for the doors to open Saturday nigh Mrs. Griffith was there to take the tick ets. "Do you intend to take tha tickets?" asked Crawford. "Yes," she announced. Crawford went back to the stage and ordered the stage caxpenter to turn out the lights. The house wr dark. Then Mr. Griffith rushed to the front and expostulated with his wife and in duced her to leave the arena and don the rarb of Virginia and cease the battle. Mr. Griffith won, and then held a stormy interviuw with Crawford In the office, finally he went back to the stage and played ""Vircrinius" to a house which paid T4 to see the production. The adage at the opera house has been changed to "when a woman will she won't." Those who saw the five acts and thir teen scenes of "Spartacus" at the matinee had their doubts aa to the entertaining qualities of the production, as did those who saw the six acts and twelve scenes of "Virginlus" at nieht. Mr. Griffith is an actor of considerable abiiitv, but his style of acting, w hieh some call ranting, and the plays which he produced are not 83 popular aa they used to be. The com pany played to j0 at Kewton a few riluhts ago. The Meal man compares a woman with a fading flower every time she ia looking yellow with a biiioiia attack. SPORTING NEWS. Brutal Speetaelo Was the Ilyan West Battle. Fought Seyenteen Rounds in Pools of Blood. WEST'S NOSE BROKEN. And Ui3 Corner Looked Like a Slaughter Pen. Gor So Thick That a Mop For Floor Was Required. Rjan Almost Knocked Out But Finally Won. Louisville, Ky March E. Tommy Ryan, of Syracuse, last night was given the decision over Tommy West, of Brooklyn, after seventeen rounds of a twenty-round contest. West's seconds threw up the sponge. The fight took place at the Audito rium, under the auspices of the Southern Athletic club and was the bloodiest and most desperate ever seen in Louisville. They entered the ring at catch weights and each weighed in the neighborhood of 157 pounds. After the tenth round West was as sisted by Terry McGovern. In the first round honors were about even, though both were right in for busi ness. Both landed often and hard, West getting in several hard jolts on Ryan's nose. In the second Ryan was knocked down twice, and seemed all but out when the gong sounded. ' At the first knock-down Ryan took al most the full count. The third and fourth rounds were West's and the fifth Ryan's. In the sixth West landed on Ryan's nose and there was more blood. Ryan was the cgeressor in this round, but West blocked and landed at will, and but for the gong might have fin ished his man. In the seventh Ryan's lip was split and West's nose was broken, his right eye closed, his forehead laid open in two places and his ehtek split. Blood poured from his wounds as time after time Ryan landed en the injured places. He piayed continually for the broken nose and for the next half dozen rounds made a veritable chopping bi'X'k of West. The punishment West took was wonderful, blood pouring from nearly a dozen of his wounls. West's corner looked like a slaughter house, and the fight announcer actually had to wipe the blood from the floor- with a mop. So bloody, indeed, was the fight that several persons near the rtrg were nauseated and had to leave the hall, still during round after round West came up only for more poundings on the nose, eye and cheek. In .the seventeenth round, when it was seen that West was fighting a hopeless fight, Terry McGovern threw up the sponge for West, and the referee gave the decision to Ryan. WALLACE WILL STICK. SayB Ha Will Play in St. Louis or No where Power Satisfied. Pittsburg, March 5. The story sent out from Chicago last night that among the Xational league players who had signed contracts with the American league was Wallace, the St. Louis ir fieUler, - who was credited with having sighed with Cleveland, was denied oy Wallace here today. Rhody Wallace lives at MIHvale, a Pittsburg suburb, but when he saw by the morning papers that he had signed ,with Cleveland, he came rushing into Pittsburg to put a denial on the win to Patsy Donovan. Wallace said: "There is absolutely no truth in the story, and such tales won't do the American league any good., 'ihey hurt me, too, and I want no more of them." Wallace took occasion at this time to kill any hopes Pitts.burgei-3 have of landing him here from St. Louis. .Dis cussing Dreyfuss' offer of Tannehill and Ely for him, Wallace said: "I shall not leave St. Louis if I hav any say in the matter, and under the new regulations I- am entitled to a say. I - will leave for St. Louis very soon.' The rumor that Charlie Power, late president of the American Association, has been guaranteed something very good next yeai", likely Nick Young's berth, was practically confirmed by Power today, on his arrival from the east. He said: "I am satisfied with the situation. 1 went irto the project with my eyes open. I received assurances from the authorized agent of the National league circuit committee that the association would be supported through thick and thin, but the failure of some of these promised supporters to live up to their agreement, and the fact that one of our own men went back on us, knocked down all we had built up. I was awa!t? when I took the position, and. while at first naturally inclined to feel a trirle sore over the deal given the associa tion. I have considered the matter in every light, and am satisfied to remain silent and bear the burden." WHERE SCOIT WILL PLAY. Reds' Star Twirler Will Not Deny American League Rumors Toledo, O., March 5. Ed Scott, the star pitcher of the Cincinnati team, has made no plans for next season. Scott would neither affirm nor deny the ru mors that he had pledged himself to the American league. "It ia too early to talk about what I will do. When the proper time comes I will have something to say, perhaps, but just at present I propose to keep mum. I have received a contract froai the Cincinnati club, but have not signed it, and don't propose to, because the salary was the same as I received last year, and I know that I am entitled to a decided increase. "I suppose I could go with the Amer ican league if I wanted to. but I don't care to talk about that just now. I'll play ball somewhere this season, but I don't know where just yet, I'm not in baseball for my health any more than are the magnates." NOTJROULAH TACKLES A BULL. Turkish Wrestler Threw the Wild Ani mal, But Had to Be Rescued. New York. March 5. Nouroulah, champion wrestler of Turkey, has met in mortal combat a ferocious bull. He walked unarmed into the pen where this king of the western plains held sway, battled for ten full minutes with the flying, lunging horns, the vicious knife iike hoofs flying fast around him. and has walked forth unscathed. The arena scene in "Ben Hur" was re peated by the bulky Turk with the most vivid realism. Martin Julian, the Turk's manager, arranged the affair. The Turk bad boasted of his prowess wit".; wild bulls too often. The manager cf the Hoboken stockyards picked out his biggest and wildest bull. Isouroulah walked boldly into the pen. The beast made half turn, when Nou roulah, with a spring, grabbed him by the horns, and with a quick. .. wrench brought him on his knees. It was but for an instant, however, for the now enraged animal sprang to his feet and tried to gore and stamp his strange antagonist. Nouroulah clung to the horns for fully ten minutes, but they were too slippery for him to throw the beast again. He had to be rsscued final ly by a dozen men. There were a dozen invited spectators. GREAT TROTTING RACE. Proposition For Four of World'sSwift eat Horses to Contest For $60,000. Boston, March 5. Probably the great est trotting race ever seen will be ar ranged this season for the largest purse ever hung up. The proposition is con tained in the following letter Issued last night by Thomas W. Law-son, owner of the champion gelding Boralma: "As there is considerable controversy about the merits of Cresceus, Charlie Herr and The Abbott, and there seems to be much trouble in getting on a match between all three or any two of the three, perhaps I may be able to as sist now that I have concluded on ac count of the cup race not to send Bo ralma to Europe until next fall. "To that end I will agree to race Bo ralma against the three, each entry to subscribe $10,000; and I further agree that the association holding the race will add a purse of $20,000, making $80,000 in all, the first horse to take $40,000, sec ond $15,000, third $5,000. All minor con ditions to be arranged on a mutually satisfactory basis to all." AFTER THE JOCKEYS. Fleischmann Negotiating For Dale Mitchell Signa With Murphy. New Orleans, March 5. Nearly all the good jockeys here have been engaged by prominent stables for the year. Mitchell will ride for Millionaire Murphy, of Philadelphia, for whom John W. Rogers trains. Kane left for his home in St. Louis last night. He will join the stable of Senator Worth, of New York, later. Odom left for Columbus, Ga, for a visit. Clarence Mackay will have first call on him. Landry - has accepted Green B. Morris' terms, and Dale will probably go with Juliu3 Kleischmann. Dave Gid eon took his departure for Hot Springs last night and Steve L'Hommedieu went to Memphis to take a rest. He quits a big loser. Haskell Defeats Nebraska. ; Lawrence,Kan.,Mareh .5 In the pret tiest and fastest basket ball game seen in Lawrence this year, the Haskell five won from the Y, M. C- A. five of Lin coln, Neb., by the score of 52 to "A. The game was furious from the firs;, but the Red men's miraculous wind was too much for the Nebraskans. There was no letup with the braves, but the. Lincoln boys tired and became dis heartened. Both of the umpires were Lincoln men, hence the large number of fouls on Haskell and small number on Lincoln. Hagensick made only six free throws. The Irdian's team worr; was perfection and -was helped greatly by Archiquette and Payer. Lincoln made some good ylays, but were never fast enough for the Reds. Hancock played a godd game, as did also An derson and Hagensick, but slow mov ing and poor judgment lost them thi? game. This victory makes Haskell the champions of this section of the coun try. Haskell was beaten by Independ ence, but hopes to get another chance at them. Sharkey Signs to Fight Maher New York, March 6. A match be tween Tom Sharkey and Peter Maher will probably take place in the near fu ture. Sharkey signed articles for a con test with Peter, and the men are wait ing to hear from a club to offer a purse. According to the agreement the mill will be for twenty-five rounds, and to be decided within six weeks. The pugilists will insist on 60 per cent, of the gate receipts. Sharkey will begin training on Monday. Sharkey says he and Spider Kelly will leave for Europe in the sum mer and tour Ireland, Scotland, Wales, England and France. They do not ex pect to return until October. Tanforan Races. San Francisco, March 5.

SOME RAILROAD BILLS That Against Stealing Rides on Trains Well Liked. f Railway Age " on the Rail road Commission Law. The session of the legislature which Is just closing has been notable for the im portant consideration which railroad matters have received. The question as to whether or not "double-header" trains should be run early excited much interest. The bill prohibiting the operation of such trains was supported by railroad men from all over the state, the reasons urged being that such was dangerous to life or limb of employes operating them. The bill, however, did not take favorably with the legislators and was allowed to die on the calendar. A measure which no one can doubt the fairness of was that permitting railroad men to vote away from home. That which perhaps pleases the rail road men most of all is the bill malting stealing a ride on a train a crime. The trainmen are given authority to make arrests. If the law is strictly enforced its benefit will not be measured merely .from an economical standpoint, but it will have been a great social factor for good by discouraging hoboism and all its concomitant results. A recent number of the Railway Age has the following to say concerning an other measure passed by the Kansas legislature: Kansas is again to enjoy a railroad commission, the legislature iiaving pass ed a bill establishing such a body, with power to fix and enforce rates when com plaint of unjust discriminat'on is made and confirmed. The measure is more reasonable than the bill which proposed to give the commission absolute power to establish and change rates and classi fications, and. in short, to take the man agement of all the railways in the state. Under the new law the board will have ample power to protect the people against unreasonable and discrimina tive rates, but the railways, like other citizens, will be assumed to be innocent until they are proved guilty. If a fair minded and competent commission is appointed, the administration of the law should not prove injurious to either the railways or the people,, al '.hough its necessity may be doubted. For some time Kansas has existed without a rail road commission and the prosperity of the state has been remarkable, SANTA FE LOCALS The men in the car department are working ten hours per day now. They begin at 7 a. m. and quit at 6 p. m., in stead of at 5 p. m. as heretofore. A. T. Parfiitt, the new boiler shop foreman, has taken charge of that de partment. Ed Heck, -who ran a nail in his foot several days ago, while at work in the field, is still laying off. Glen Mortland, a North Topeka boy, has taken a clerkship in the machinery department of the shops. The boilermakers have had a group photograph of themselves taken for the purpose of presenting it to A. M. Baiid, their former foreman. j H. S. Montgomery, general watch in spector of the Santa Fe, is sick at his home on Monroe street. W. P. Batters, of Ohio, and J. W. Van Fossen are new men in the car re pair department. Brakeman Bruner is laying off. Brake man Murdoek is taking his place. Railroad men will sympathize deeply with Pat Sherman in the death of his wife. The funeral will be held Wednes day afternoon. . East-bound passenger trains yesterday afternoon were considerably "off." No. 6, due here at 4:35, did not arrive until 6 o'clock. The delay was caused by the wind and by a hot box at Emporia. The wind was the chief cause of delay to other trains. RAILROAD NOTES General J. H. Lyon, general western passenger agent of the Missouri Pacific, was in Topeka yesterday. In the Atchison district court Judge Bland granted an injunction restraining James A. Spaulding from riding a patent railroad bicvele on the tracks of the Atch ison, Topeka & Santa Fe railroad. H. S. Jones, foreman of a Panta Fe fence gang, was killed a few days ago near Longfon. He was at work when an iron snatch block weighing 25 pounds struck him on the cheek, killing him in stantly. He was 54 years old and had been in the Santa Fe service fourteen WHY SO MANY FAIL. The Reason So Many Catarrh Rem; edies are Unsuccessful. There are few troubles, for which there are so many remedies and so called "cures" as for catarrh and it may be added there are few diseases so difficult to really and permanently cure Inhalers, sprays, powders and douches are all applied locally and give tempor ary relief, often only a few hours, and it is doubtful if anything like a real cure of catarrh was ever accomplished by the use of local applications. Catarrh is a constitutional disease, it is in the blood like rheumatism and to cure it requires an internal medicine to act upon the blood, to drive out the ca tarrhal poison from the system entirely and anyone can readily see that a salve or powder or inhaler which simply clears off the mucous membrane of the nose and throat can have no effect on the real cause of catarrhal disease. The remarkable success of the new catarrh remedy, Stuart's Catarrh Tab lets is because it drives out of the sys tem through the natural channels, the catarrhal poison, the germs of grip, bronchitis and consumption and causes the hawking, spitting and gagging be cause the excessive secretion is no longer supplied when the blood is made healthv from the regular use of Stuart's Catarrh Tablets. The remedy is in the form of large 20 grain lozenges, pleasant and palatable, composed only of wholesome antiseptics and so safe to use that little children use them .with perfect safety and bene fit if the little one is suffering from colds, croup or cough from any cause. Stuart's Catarrh Tablets have been on the market scarcely one year, yet they have met with popularity and success that druggists everywhere in United States and Canada now have them in stock and report a constantly Increasing demand for them.
