JOTJHN AIL MONDAY 2TIGIIT. 9 y IE PIG uo niLi John L. Salliyan Thinks Lanky Bob Will Beat O'Brien. IIe lias the Punch, That's Why," Says the Veteran. OLD FIGHTER IS HAPPY Mas Given Tp His Fight With John Barleycorn. Will Appear With His Company Tonight at Auditorium. John L. Sullivan is in town. Imagine a man weighing 260 pounds, standing five feet and ten and one-half Inches In his stocking- feet, 4S years old. Treasuring 27 inches about the thigh, 17 above the calf of the leg-. 17 inches about the biceps and 14 inches about the fore-arm. having a chest expansion cf seven inches and a chest measure ment of 42 inches, a neck measuring 19 Inches and needing a 21 inch collar and there you have just a few of the things which -oint out why the only John I was the greatest fighting ma chine of his age. lie was caught at breakfast, in his Jolui L. Sullivan, AVho "Will Apppear With His Company at the Auditorium Tonight. own room at the Throop hotel, in a good mood, and in his lingerie, if you'll pass that word. Before him was an ar ray of liver and bacon, great heaping quantities of both, with plenty of dec orations in the way of coffee, rolls, and other breakfast perquisites. He was manifestly happy and hungry. He got up and shook hands, and a grasp of his fingers threatened total destruction. It was like a vise. "Glad to see you!" came like a loco motive whistle out of that big neck and throat. It had a sound something like an ocean storm. The rafters rattle when John L. talks. But it is deep, rich and clear, in fact beautiful, if you like a bass voice. It is a dead cinch that he won't have to wear him self out making everybody hear in the Auditorium tonight when he separates himself from one of his famous mono logues. It is a genuine pleasure to meet John L. He can talk about everything un der the sun with fluency. He can tell stories, relate anecdotes, give dates in history, and in every way royaliv en tertain a visitor. Stories were sandwiched in between his bacon and liver. When he got through he dug up a pipe, of which he has a great assortment. He filled up the cavernous bowl, got a good start end then leaned back, happy and con tented. The chair fairly groaned under the huge mass of muscle and adipose which ornaments the anatomy of the oll-timf great fighter. His head would take the prize in am beauty show. Clear-cut. well modelled his hair and curled mustache a silvery while, he might pass for prosperous fctad of a bank, or a man who tells the trusts how to run thir business He Plight be a mayor of a big city' A United Plates senator's toga wouldn't look amiss on the big fellow's physi cal make-up. John L. believes that Bob Fitzim mons. the old speckled leopard, almost a big an idol as Sullivan himself, will ret ihe money in his fight against Jack O Rnen at San Francisco on Wednesday " Why?" was asked of him. "Why," he answered back. "Because old Bob has the punch. He has it." And tnen John shoved out one of his pon derous big arms, that looks almost like the limb on a full-grown oak tree, and exhibited the thing which fighters call their "punch." The air fairly whistled In the exhibition. "But then you know," said John, light ing up his pipe again. "I don't like to Ray that for publication. But then I guess it Is all right. I've got to he care ful about my prognostications on fie-hts. But it's Fitz for me. Jack is shiftv But ain't Red-Top Robert, too?" "What atiout Jeffries?" he was asked. "Ah, there is a boy," said John iJ. "But I don't blame him for not fighting any more. It is hard work .the hardest kind of work. Not many of the bovs are stuck on the fighting game for itself. itS. haa licked 'em all. Hs is making money now. He certainly is a great one." "What about Jim Corbett?" was asked. "He talks about fighting again," was the answer. "I guess he is afraid thai people will forget that he is alive. He is a fine boxer, but not a fighter. I don't say this because he got me, though." "What about the fighting game in general?" "Oh," was the answer, "I guess the business is about over. Ltfts of states are stopping it. Then, too, many of the boys are doing their scrapping through the newspapers instead of in the ring." "How do you keep yourself in such good condition?" he was asked. "I've quit the booze," he replied. "1 haven't taken a drink for months, and what is more I'm not going to take any for a long time to come. During the last twenty-five years I have given booze a tough battle and I find that they are still making it and making it faster than ever before. No man living ever won a decision from old John Barley Corn and he is still champion of cham pions. I know whereof I speak for I have entered the ring many a time with him. But we all have our faults and our failings and I being only human have mine." "How do you exercise?" he was asked. And this is where John L. gave fat men a point which they might profit by when he said: "I put on an old sweater and an old pair- of rants, lay clown flat on the floor and roll around on my stomach. There is not a finer massage in the world for a fat stom ach and abdomen than this method. I roll back and forward a hundred times. By no other system can you get the weight as you can by laving down. A fat man is naturally heavy. The system is the finest in the world and I can recommend it to any man that is bothered with overweight. See what it has done for me." John L. got up from his chair, stooped over without bending his knees and touched the floor with the tip of his fingers. It is a twenty to one shot in the dark that few 260 pound men can do this trick, those who can, won't do it w ith the ease, the lack of fatigue, with which John L. goes through the stunt. Then Sullivan picked up a couple of dumb bells, which looked as if they had been made for a six-months-old infant to play with. They weighed a pound each. With these he exercises and just a regular old fashioned form of calisthenics is his formula. "Why don't you use big ones?!' he was asked. "They are made for show and noth ing else," was the reply. "They are not made for actual use. You don't want to tie yourself up in knots swing ing around great big weights. That don't do the business. It makes you sore as a boil. What you want is easy, graceful motion, unaccompanied by strain or fatigue. From that kind of work you get vour real genuine bene fit." "Do you diet any?" was asked of him. "I eat just two meals every day," was his reply. "And then I eat good ones." "How about your sleep?" he was asked. "I always go to bed at night as soon as the show is over and get my rest," was the answer. "Sleep is absolutely necessary to feeling good. "Say, I got a boxing partner who is a dandy." he said suddenly. "He is Jim Mi-Corniick a big six foot Texan from Galveston. The boy is only twenty-live years old, but he is doing nice business. You want to see him work." John L. was interrupted by the por ter of the hotel, who brought in a bunch of letters and a few packages. Sullivan tore, open the letters first, and read one aloud. It was from a niece in Boston and she was sending him some Christmas presents. Ha opened up the. package and took out an array of fine silk socks, some good handkerchiefs, and a few other little things. "They never forget their Uncle John," " he said. meditatively.. "I never forget them either. I have two nieces. One gets a present of $125 this year and the other one a present of $150. It is mighty nice to hear from them when I'm out on the road, living in a trunk. I can te;i you." Sullivan is here with his show, which begins at the Auditorium to night. A performance will be given tonight. Tuesday night, Wednesday afternoon (matinee), and Wednesday night. There are twelve acts on the programme. . The Hamlins appear in stead of Sallie Randall. The latter was recalled to her home in the east on account of the serious illness of her mother. The Hamlins are rated the best soft-shoe dancing and banjo artists in the country. The show will "begin tonight at fifteen minutes of, eight. This will tea a decided innovation and is one that should not be overlooked. It will be an absolute novelty for any perform ance in Topeka to begin that early, but the show will start promptly at 7:45. The doors will be open at 6:30. "We do this," said Manager Hail, "to get through. At the very best our show is not over until 11 o'clock.. We simply have the best thing in the way of a vaudeville performance that you ever saw. It cannot be beaten. I will say that it is the best outside, of New York and Chicago. That may sound lika a boast, but you will believe it after you have seen it . tonight. " It will be a good thing for people to re member, too, that no time during the performance will be too late to come in. There is plenty of it, and you can come in at any time and get your money's worth." The programme for tonight is as follows: John L. Sullivan and his mono logue, telis of his travels around the world, some of the funniest instances that occurred, producing two of the cleverest artists appearing before the public today. Sylveno, the marvelous shadow grapher. Eidridge. who builds houses of sand. Miller, the handcuff king, who has broken frbm the following prisons: Tombs prison, New York, N. Y., the prison at Portland, Oregon, city jail at Seattle, Wash., the county prison in Denver, Colo., the only man that ever escaped from Kings county peniten tiary at Long Island, N. Y., and the only man who ever escaped from the man of war "Perry" while chained in irons to the rings of the floor. The musical Adams, undoubtedly the finest musical performance ever seen on the American stae. Baffles, the dog, a dog that has been taught and trained to steal and bring his missives home. Perkins, king of the high wire, the new slack wire performer, lifted from the stage twelve feet high. While on the wire three hoops are placed around his body almost making movement an impossibility, walking on ladder bal anced on whre, etc. Kennedy and Vincent, grand comedy pair. Can do everything on a piano but make it talk. Their act is inde scribable. John L. Sullivan and his sparring partner, Jim McCormick, a young man of 2 4 years of age, standing six feet two inches in height and weighing 196 pounds, undoubtedly the champion of the world. This sparring event of three rounds will be worth the travel of many thoroughbreds miles to see and serves as an education to ladies and children as well as men. Boxing stands today as one of the healthiest of sports. It makes the brain active and the eye quick and is something that should be, understood by every man, woman or child. Living pictures of James J. Corbett and Kid McCoy, showing the great contest. The ten thousand people are visible to the eye, every movement that is made in the twenty-four foot ring is as plain as the nose of the face, the entrance of the referee, introduction of McCoy and Corbett, the man standing in the ring agreeing to the articles as to what rules they shall fight by, the putting on of the gloves, the fight in general is as plain as if you would be sitting at the ring side yourself. The Bradys, two of the cleverest artists appearing before the public to day in their marvelous bag punching. Also singing and dancing. The Hamlins. champion soft shoe dancers and banjo players. THEY'RE PAYING UP. Receiver Bradley "Will Probably Get All Devlin Money Tliis Week. The bulk of the unpaid life insurance of the late C. J. Devlin, which has been assigned to the First National will be paid over this week. Arrangements should be perfected by the latter part of the week for the declaration of a div idend which will probably be paid soon after the first of the new year. This morning the Provident Life and Trust company of Philadelphia, turned in a check of $10,111.30 upon a policy which had been assigned. The policy was one for $10,000 but the extra amount was a dividend. The State Mutual Life Insurance company has sent a notification of a payment of $35,000, a check for which has been sent through the mail and which should be received here Tuesday. The Phoenix Mutual Life Insurance company which write policies aggre gating $55,000 have informed the receiv er that payment for the full amount of the policies will be made sometime dur ing the week. The remaining life insurance, is divid ed principally between the New York Mutual, the Germania Life and the Un ion Central. Holiday Kates Sow Santa Fe.

T. L. KING, C. P. A. The Coming Country. The opportunity for the man of lit tle means is probably better today in the prairie states of the southwest than ever before in the history of the nation. The chance of pre-empting claims or of taking up lands under government laws is gone and will not return again. It is a different kind of opening which lies before the settler and its promise is of exceeding bright ness. Its best opportunity is shown in the great southwest where the transformation is going on and where the conditions of soil and climate is in harmony with the warm skies and temperate winds. To the man who is not satisfied with his condition, the southwest has an Inviting future. Along the lines of the Missouri, Kansas & Texas railway there are vast areas of unimproved lands awaiting willing hands to make them yield the bountiful crops of which the land ia capable. There is a need of stores, factories and new business of every description. It is the finest kind of an opportunity in the finest section of the United States. The southwest is unexcelled for the variety and fer tility of its soils for its climate. Its people are progressive and up-to-date, its religious and educational facilities are as good as can be found elsewhere The M. K. & T. railway has no lands for sale, but is interested in building up this productive country. It is believed that the southwest has bilghter prospects and offers better opportunities than any other section Keemg is believing. For that reason the southwest courts investigation of the conditions as they exist. Anyone desirous of learning more of the southwest will do well to address George Morton, general passenger and ticket agent, Missouri, Kansas & 3's-9 rnilwav. box 911. St. Louis, Mo.
