The Red Stars defeated the Red Ravens yesterday, 8 to 7. It was almost a split. There will he no professional ball here next week. Butte will go to Salt Lake to see what can be done with the Mormon Ilders on their own grounds. Ilowever, that ball game between the Butte Elks and the Helena Elks will be something worth seeing. Helelna ha played a numbier of matched games b far this season and will comle over pre pared to win that cup or slip a cable. Salt Lake has a lot of good players, but somehow they donl't seem to get the scores. They lack in trami work and energy.

When a great number of his friends gathered to felicitate hibm on the occasion of his recent marriage, lie said: "Friend.: I cannotll call you more, nor can I call you less. I feel this evening as I have never felt for a very long time. I amt pleased to have you all at my wed ding, and. I assure you, words fail to ex press imiy feelings. I do not wish to' dwell (n the past: all I can say is that I love tmiy I;ttle Julia. and I shall be a good, true atid hotnest hiusband.

Clink your glasses and drink to our future happiness. Being overweight when it is time for the going to sound is an old story with Jack O'Keefe. Around Chicago he frequently made muatches at a certain weight and would tilp the scales two or three pounds over the mnark. Rather than spoil the show, the other llan would waive the over weight and fight O'Keefe. But nine pounds was altogether too much for a 133-pound man to allow, and Britt was right in re fusinlg to take a chance with the Chicago lad. Next to matching two fighters, the weight question is the hardest proposition the promoters have to encounter, and many a card has been spoiled by one of the which is not usual with him, for he sel domn has his say about fighting. Pausing a moment, he said: "Now, I'll tell what I think Corbett is going to do. lie has been talking about running away for 20 rounds. lIe's told several people that and they've told me, but I don't by lieve it. I think he will rush in and try to knock me out in four, five or six rounds. lEverything proves that; his long abdomi nal training, to build up his defenses; his constant sparring and his work with the big bag. "Besides, it is his only chance. He can't keep away from me for ao rounds, even if I'll let him, which I wouldn't, as the crowd wouldn'tstand for it. lie knows it and will find me ready." Jeff's judg ment on Corbett's condition was that he was overtrained. ticipate in the shooting. Fred Snyder of Butte holds the Brownlee medal for 5o singles, and Dan Yancey has the Klepetko medal for ten pairs of doubles. A lunch will be served at the grounds. The shoot ing will begin at to o'clock tomorrow fore noon. and two Chicago golfers are again to meet each other for the Western championship. They are IIf. Chanler Egan of Exmoor sad (Continued on Page Nine.) contestants who either could not or would not make the required weight. Oakland has taken steps to curb the .mushroom" boxing clubs in that city. An ordinance was recently passed allowing incorporrated athletic clubs to give boxing exhibitions after first having obtained per mission from the board of police and ire cnmmissioners. Under this act, all clubs not to the liking of the board will be put uut of business. Less than one week remains before Jet fries and Corbett will meet to contest ifr the heavyweight championship of the aorld, and speculation now is on regard Im the number of rounds that Corbett will .tcy. Bets of even money that he will not ,tsay more than so rounds are offered, but .iith no takers. Among Corbett's friends e stand is taken that as it took aj ,.ondIs for Jeff to knock Corbett out when tl y met at Coney Island in an i8-foot I, mg it will le impossible for him to touch hijm hard enough to put him out in ao r, unls in a a4-foot ring. They are not Iuking into consideration, however, that I, firies has improved in his work to a re :earkable degree, and is faster, hits harder .aId protects himself better than he did hen he and Corbett met in tgoo. Cor tt is in the best condition he ever has Iown, and will make a strong effort to t;ly the limit, but there are not many up this way who think he will be able to do the trick. There is liable to be a passage at law hI tween Julia May Gifford, the recently a;It wife of Robert Fitasimmons, and I'rederick C. Whitney, when the theatrical manager, who is on his way to this coun try from Europe, reaches New York. When Mr. Whitney engaged Miss Gif ford, he thought he had a find and made a ccnutract with the little soprano, extending overr I I years. Mliss GitTord does not seem to take that cn,,tract very seriously, as a letter was received from her at the Whitney offices ;saying she had decided to retire from Mr. \\ hitney's management, as her pugilist husband had other plans for her future. \\hat Mr. Whitney's reply may be re mains to be seen, but it is likely he will not accede to the change until the courts have an opportunity to decide upon the strength of the contract which exists be tween him and Miss Gifford. The letter did not mention the nature of the plans which Fitzsimmons has in mind for his little bride, but it is understood, the freckled Australian has ideas of a istarring tour of his own after he has fought his next fight, with Miss Gifford as his leading woman. The great fighter is growing older every day and it is only natural that he should be casting about for a new profession. Ac cording to a recent announcement of his own, he has no money. He has always had the managerial bee an his silk hat and has quite frequently expressed a liking for the theatrical business from the viewpoint of the boxoffice. Nothing is more natural than that he should go a-starring after his next battle, as the public undoubtedly entertains strong sentimental feeling toward the iron man of the prize ring. It is also natural that tihe sharer of his household should share the dramatic honors for which he will strive. AGAIN THE ELODERS ARE DEFEATED SALT LAKE TEAM GETS ONE LONELY LITTLE SCORE IN THE EIGHTH INNING. If Salt Lake wanted to win at any stage of yesterday's game there was no outward evi. dence of it. The play was listless and tne visitors didn't have a look-in. It was simply a lquetion of whether the Elders would be shut o1t or not that kept the fans awake. Quick was in the box for Salt Lake. In the fljt inning, after two men were out, Flannery made an error which resulted in Butte getting four runs. So far as the result of the game was concerned, this settled Salt Lake's chances. Roach pitched a good, steady game for Itutte and received fine support. Following is the score: UL'TTE- AB. R. II. PO. A.

L-Dammeas aiewud the DISEASES OF THE KIDNEYS BRIGHT'S DISEASE DIABETES, DROPSY Very few persons have any correot conooeption of the numerous mala dies which result from an impaired or diseased condition of these glands. Nor do they understand that a great many troubles from whioh they are sufferers, that they attribute to other soureos, or that they are not able to locate at all, are directly traceeble to disorder and disease of these organs. Designed to carry out of the system certain deadly poisons, by separating the urine from the blood, it is easy to understand why disease and death speedily follow an improper performance of their function In the body. As a result of imperfect action of the kidneys, and a retention of poisonous matter in the blood, many serious and fetal diseases manifest themselves, as Rheumatism, Paralysis, Dropsy, Bright's Disease, Heart Disease, Lame Back, Skin and Blood. Trouble, Abnormal Growths, Ab scesses, Ulcers, Neuralgia, Nervousness, Cold Hands and Feet, Female Weakness, Etc. These troubles generally approach so slowly as scarcely to be noticeable, and excite but little concern until a very serious stage Is reached. The usual symptoms are general debility, lose of flesh, weakness or pain in the small of the back; red, pale or dingy urine, either increased or diminished in quantity; difficult and painful urination; pain in the stomach and vomiting of peculiar substances; periodical headaohe; dry, parched mouth, thirst, anxiety and restlessness, cold hands and feet, inability to lie on right side, emaciation and loss 'of strength. Diseases of the kidneys assume many different complications that can not always be readily distinguished by the outward manifestatione, making a careful microscopical and chemical examination of the urine ab solutely necessery, as the only reliable means of diagnosis. Those who have any reason to believe that they have the least trouble with these organs should not delay in having a thorough examina tion made at once, as such diseases almost invariably prove fatal unless checked by prompt and skillful treatment. My treatment of these troubles has been reduced to a science, and any one consulting me will be told at once the nature and extent of their trouble; and by placing themselves under my professional care will secure such treatment as will speedily remove the cause and restore them to pei. foot health. for More Than FIfteen Years I have made a special study of the above conditions. Nervousness, sleep lessness, nerve prostration, mental despondency and other neuresthenio con ditions are in most cases directly traced to derangements of these organs.
