BOUND HAND r'OOT With muscles drawn and throbbing with pain, and joints swollen, stiff and tender, the rheumiatic patient is as helpless and dependent as though bound lamnand foot. No disease causes such intense suf fering, such sharp, nerve-racking pains as Rheunmatism, and this unfeeling mon ster, unless checked, crushes the strength and hope of its victimis, When the systemn becomes infected with Uric Acid and other like poisons they are absorbed into the blood and lodged in the muscles, joints and nerves. Then with the suddenness of an electric shock, pains begin to shoot through the muscleor joint affected, which often swells and infl;aces, and becomes tender, feverish and sore. Unless treated through the blood Rheumnatism } gro'wssteadlily worse, finally ending in shrluken muscles, ilunovable j o in t s, s a k y nerves, and the invalid's chair or crutches. The cure of Rheumatism can never be complete or permanent until the acid blood has been purified and the sys temn cleansed of all poisonous matter. 8. 8. 8. does this promptly and surely, because it is a perfect blood medicine, and an antidote for the irritating acids that cause Rheumatism. .

To the as\erage person there is as much I "(;reek" in bowling vernllacular as there is in golf or baseball. Last week lun dreds were rewarded with turkeys in bowl ing, but comparatively few of these got what is called a "turkey" in the slang of the tenpin artist--three successive strikes. hlicre are hundreds of these expressions, says Albert IBoswell, and no doubt a bowl ers' dictionary would be in as big demand aiiolng the fains as was "Joe" Ryan's first ,,if dictionary \\ith the golf enthusiasts. A "qljuad'" means four strikes in suc co -ion, a 'lblow" is to miss a single pitn and to pick one piln ofl a bunch of three or four is termlld a "cherry pick." Some of the local ft.ingetall bowlers are adeptis at lickin; cherrits; henclle the numerous low scorr and the influix of lines ilnto the treasulries of the \arious leagues. \\'When a Iber faces a "r:ilroatld"--nme piiI behind nthe r-- lie lbeoes as inervous as the el gi.eer apprioaching all oupi bridge ait full 'et.d. o misis a "raitroui" is an error.

Jerry Was Clear Out. It was several minutlltes before the Walk erville lad r&ealiled what had happened. lie tottered to his feet, assisted by his sec" onds, and startrd toward Mose's corner with the evident intentioni of rencwing hostilitics. lie was hcld back, however, and a moment later the two menl shook hands. Mlose was hailed the victor amid showers of congratulations and loud ap plause, while his beaten opponent was led from the ring the "somnanmbulist of a shat. tered drcamn." The contest had been advertised to begin at 9 o'clock, but it was an hour after that time when the principals entered the ring. Jerry took the southeast corner and .Mose the one towards Broadway. Mose wore bandages to protect his hands while \\Walkerville's Pet donned his mitts without them. Billy Nolan was chosen referee and Jack Mcl.aughlin as oflicial timekeeper. The men weighed in at the ringside ant the 7-1o, 4-6, 4-9 and 8-1o. These are termed "wide open splits." Sometimes splits are the result of a poor first ball, which hits the head pin full. The splits usually left on such a ball are the 7-1o and 4-6. These are made so sellom that" most bowlers do not try for the spare, content ing themselves with the single pin. There are other splits, however, w1jch are often the result of an almost perfect ball, such as 5-7, 5-o1, 3-10, 2-7, 8-so, 7-9 and 9-10. Most of these splits can be made. \\lhen such sphlits are made it is the result of careful, accurate work, anl the player who is frequently successful in making such shots obtains a wide reputa tion as a good bowler, and whenever such a split is made in ia league or match game, the spectators reward the player with a large amount of hearty applause. But in the score, and each illividual score tends to make bowling history, the player is credited with a spare, the same as though lie had made a simple one or two-pinl spare. It is infliitcly more ditlicult to make a split than i onie-pin spare, andl the player should receive not only the "glad hand" but also sublstactial recognition in the score. THEY THINK THERE HAS BEEN A CROD.KED DEAL The Board of Review of the NatioHal Trotting Association Have Certain Men on the Carpet. TI A tSii)iAF E llt t1Rl's , New York, Dec. 5 --The board of re view of the National 'I'rottinig association resumed its sessions yesterday, the first case ;taken lup being that of the associa tion against \Villiam (I'Ntal, Lexingtoll, Mass., and \V. .

Bowdoin of lHartford, Conn., who drove Gambcet, and C. II. Cook, driver of Hell Mine, owned by Mrs. l.evy of Nevy Haven, gave evidence. Tile name of C. J. Ilamiblett of Nltshua, N.

In the first round honors were about even, but Jerry was sent to the floor and through the ropes by a stilt uppercut just as the gong sounded. In the second Jerry used his wejght to good advantage and Mose seemed a trille tired. The third was Jerry's by a city bloct. lie landed right and left on face repeatedly and brought first blood. Mose's nose bled freely and it was pronounced to be broken after the fight. The fourth was nip and tuck.

BY ASSOC'IAT:D PRESS. Madison, Wis., Dec. 5.-The Wisconsin team will probably not be allowed to make the trip to the Pacific coast. Such was the statement given out by Manager Kil patrick yesterday evening. The reason for the change in the plans is the refusal of the university faculty to allow the team to play any other teams excepting the University of California and Leland Stan ford, the two teams which were consid ered when the faculty consented to the post-season games. The University of California team has gone out of training with the intention 'i not playing a post-season game. The peo ple who were promising the game on the coast wired Manager Kilpatrick that the only game that could be sustituted would he one with the Perris Indian School, and it is to this game that the acting president objects.

After a hot mix-up in the ropes they got back to the center of the ring when Jerry again hit the floor from a hard uppercut to the chin. This time he was out for keeps and Mose retired to his corner the winner. The first preliminary was of the farce or der. "The lismarck Kid" was fairly flayed by Billy Smith and never once tried to re turn the jabs and swings that came his way. He quit like a dog in the fourth round and was hissed off the stage. The second preliminary event was the best ever seen in Butte. 'Doc" 1'lynn, at one time almost the world's champion, un dertook to put it over Howard Opie, the pride of Centerville, and for four fast rounds these two lightweights electrified the spectators. They countered, led, blocked and jabbed with such rapidity that it was a hard mat ter to follow all the moves. 1'lynn proved to be the cleverest man with his left, but Opie's footwork was hard to beat.

In conversation with a well-known printer bowler today, he said: "'There is a newspaper team in Ana conda, employes of the Standard, who have done as much talking as they have playing. The Butte prints practice but seldom, but at that we have challenged these Anacondans on more than one oc casion for a series of games for money, marbles or chalk, yet they appear to hesi tate.
