In his report Dr. Tillman says of Cor bett : "Realizing the benefits of physical power In common with his marvelous speed, he has worked to that end with studied care. By a system of exercise he has developed muscular force required to sustain him in the struggle for the championship with his giant opponent." Yesterday Corbett took a jaunt on the road and practice with the gloves in the gynasium. lie is in perfect condition and knows it, but is not willing to take a chance on going back in his preparation by taking an ill-advised rest. Like Jelfries, he has varied his work with pleasure and has avoided the nervous strain which marked his condition in gctting ready for previous contests. * Jeffrles will move from IHarbin Springs to Oakland today and will be a guest of the Reliance club until Friday night. Billy Delaney is delighted with his con dition, and pays he will surely win through the onslaught he will maintain from start to finish. Rather Inconsistent.

Nor do they understand that a great many troubles from which they are sufferers, that they attribute to other sources, or that they are not able to locate at all, are directly traceable 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 fatal 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, loss 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 headache; 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 manifestations, making a careful microscopical and chemical examination of the urine ab solutely necessary, 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 per fect 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. If You Are Suffering Consult the doctor who has made a special study of chronic diseases.

Harhin Springs, Cal., Aug. a.-Jeffries put in an easy day yesterday working in the gym. nacium and sparring with Fits, Kennedy and Jack. The clhanmlpion was never in such con. dition in his life andn he will be a revelation when he strips for his friends in IFrisco. In his set to %ith Vita yesterday the latter tried to sholw him rhow ('rbrlett acted in the clinches nt ('arson City and how he rubbed his hand in Vitl's face, making his lips bleed. JriT then illustrated to Vits what he will do if Corlett tries that plan with him. It sur. priseld Iit, who suail: "If you do tlit to him lie will jump over the ropes." Many frienlds were iiIp fromn Sn Francisco yesteridaly and Jit was in high spirits in con* sequence. Jllly L.yons, who is one of the champlion's staunchlllest supotllrters, will remain here until Jeff leaves for O(akland. D)elaney SIDE REMARKS ON THE DAY'S SPORTING NEWS There must be a hnndoo lurking about first place in the percentage column. Every time Ilutte gets to the totp there is a dreadful slaughter and down Ilntte goes again. Anyway the opinion obtains around this camp that Salt .Luke. can't do it again. Mr. Wigga is certainly the king bee of the cabbage patch so far as 1iutle is concerned. The Elks' loving cup, for which the .lclena and Butte baseball tennis will battle tomorrow afternoon isnl't worth 30 cents, but the honor of holding it is priceless. Frank June's will probably umpire the Elks' baseball game tomorrow. The llutte Elks will wear the suits that Me Closkey' rchamlion' wore wlihen they won the pennant last year pure white with a dash of purple. The gang will be all here tomorrow. The Ilutte Il1k who doesn't get his little old straw hat with the purple band and get in the parade tnomorrow, gets fined. And that's no elvanescenlt dream either. The Elk.' )aMchall lteant ill have one more practice this evening at the gardens. The latest rumor in baseball circles is that John J. Mc('loskey will not be located on the coast next season. It Is said that he has signed a contract to manage the Minneapolis club in the American association. W\hen I'resident hart hired him to handle his team at a large salary he was manager of the Butte 'club, which won the pennant in the Northwest league last year. His success with that team attracted Ilirt's notice, and after conslderalle dickering with the Ilutte club Induced it to release MscCloskey fromnt a two years' contract.

Some one who had been to Alamedadold Jeff about Corhett's new heart punch. The champion laughed, and said: "I think he 11ll need some kind of a punch that deals with the heart, if I have him down right. All the trouble with Jim has been around the bean. I am willing to let him send home that heart punch as hard as he likes, and you fellows have been rending in the papers what Yal. Krnney and lierger say about it. Well, its watch and see it won't affect me." Fits when not boxing with the champion spends his time in lung walks with his new wife, who seems to enjoy the experlenqe of being present when a fighter is training for the championship. Fits says he will arrange to star his wife this fall in a piece now beilg written for her, and if successful will nevhr fight again. .

The championship title is a secondary matter altogether." This is what Frank Perkins and Gieorge Sudheimer write after visiting the camp of James J. Corbett. They were sent to report for the Amateur Athletic association on Cor bett's condition, and witnessed an exhibition bout given in their honor. Ioth Perkins and Sudheimer are well-known athletes, and their opinions will have a great deal to do with iluencing the betting of the local men on'the fight. i'rc,fcssional baseball players are this season as numerous and much better than tips on the races. There are now t7 important profes. sional leagues, and probably to times as many of the smaller semi-professional and amateur or gatniations. These leagues average eight clubs each, which means that ;j6 aggregations rally at the call of the umpire's "'lay ballt" Many of these clubs carry from is to so players on the payroll. Others use only ts to tI. The aver age, however, easily reaches IS men to a team. One hundred and thirty-six teams, using as players each, make a remarkable total of a,o40 ball players who will scribble their autographs to contracts before spring blooms again. This is figuring on the professional class in league ranks only. There are thousands of semltpro* fessional aggregations who do not come under the head of league players. than $3.nno had been wagered in this city. The bulk of this money went at a to r, with Jeffries the favorite. It is believed that the Corbett end will sell today at to to 4. and that a large amount of money will be bet. Jeftrics and his retinue have leIt Harbin Splrings and taken tip quarters at Oakland, where he will remain until the day of the fight. ('orhett entertained a number of visitors at his quarters in Alameda and gave an exhibi tion of his tactics and his athletic course of training. The demand for seats for the fight is the greatest ever known here, and the hall, which will hold to,ooo people, will not be able to accommodate the crowd which is anxious to witness the contest. lotih men are confident of victory, and it is certain the fight will be a lively one from the start. JOCKEY ROGERS IS FATALLY INJURED BY ASSOCIATED PREISS.

GAME NEWS FROM MONTANA WILDS DUCKS AT WILD HORSE LAKE ARE GETTING PLENTIFUL AND $0 ARE POACHERS. Havre, Aug. is.-It Is reported by ranchers residing about Wild Horse lake that parties have been killing ducks at the lake out of season. One rancher reported that two people killed ducks a week ago on the Canadian side of the lake and he believes they hunted on that side. Ducks are reported quite plentiful, a large number of ducks breeding at the lake by reason of the abolishment of spring shooting. The fall flight will commence within a short time when the surface of the lake will be fairly covered with ducks, geese and brant. Last year Wild Horse Lake was perhaps the best duck hunting ground in the state. Hundreds of flights of Canadian ducks from the far north dropped into the lake for a week or two. Several hunting parties are being arranged for the first week in September. A number of Helena people will be here on September 3 and C. W. Young, George Purnell and others will go out the first week after the open season begins. Thousands of Quail. Lewistown, Aug. :s.-Twenty-four dozen quail were shipped to Kalispell from Nebraska three years ago, and so rapid has been their increase that it is now estl mated that there are not less than three thousand of the favorite little game birds in Flathead county. It is suggested that quail culture could be made a success in this county, as there is a suffciency of woods and the climate is very suitable for them. The law protects them and if a few dozen were brought in it would be but a few years until there would be thousands on the benches and in the mountains of this county. Trout Getting Low. White Sulphur Springs, Aug. :a.-The trout streams of Smith river valley are getting depleted and we are at a loss to know the reason why this is so. The government hatchery at Bozeman would furnish this valley all the young trout and greyling necessary to keep the streams well supplied if the people would take interest enough in the matter to ap ply for them. There is no town in the state where the people so universally en Joy the sport of fishing as in White Sul phur Springs and at the same time there is probably no town where they manifest the indifference about keeping up the stock. At the rate they are now disappearing in a few years the people will realize the fact that they have elegant trout streams, but no trout. The SIavlo Name.

Many athletes have pined for the cogp nomen "the man with the iron jaw," but it has remained for Henry Geyer, saz Twenty-fourth place, Chicago, to show the police that he deserves the name. During a quarrel over a pitcher of beer at Twenq ty-second and Grove streets Geyer was shot by James Ludden, of 379o Wabash avenue. T he bullet hit Geyer in the jaw on the left side, and, though the wound bled profusely, the bullet flattened on the jaw without even splintering that member, according to physicians who attended the injured man. Geyer says he thought for a few mind utes that he was killed, but he soon found that he was not even knocked down. He walked to the People's hospital, Twen ty-second street and Archer avenue, and had the bullet removed and the wound dressed without taking an anaesthetic. He then walked home. So far as can be learned Geyer is the first Chicago man to be shot point blank in the jaw by a 38-caliber revolver and fail to suffer a broken Jaw. Dr. I. C. Gary, who removed the bullet, said it was easy to take the bullet out, as it had cir4 cled the jawbone and lodged inside the mouth, just under the skin. The physician says that Geyer's escape from 4 broken jaw is due to the nearness of the; pistol to the head. Geyer's face was badly burned by the powder. Luddea was arrested by the plice of the Hinmas Street etation.-Baltimore American.
