GREAT SPREAD OF SAILS OF THE
RELIANCE GIVES SHAMROCK III
NEARLY TWO MINUTEs.
AY ASSO(IAIED PRss,.
New York. Aug. 19.-The Reliance and
Shamrock III. were measured yestrrday
in the Erie basin by C. I-. Mower, the offi
cial measurer of the New York Yacht club.
As the result of his measurements and
calculations it was announced at the Yacht
club that the Reliance would allow the
challenger i minute and 45 seconds over
a *o-mile course.
It was found that the Shamrock Ill.
was slightly longer on the eater line than
the American boat, but the latter proved
to have nearly j,0ou more tsquare feet of
sail area than the challenger, and it was
this enormous spread that taxed the Ameri
can boat so heavily.
The announcement of the time allow
ance in favor of the challenger caused little
surprise at the yacht club, as it was the
general belief that the Reliance wouli
prove considerably larger all around than
The Italiance and Shamrock swung
lazily at their mnooring inside Sandy Ilook

test for the America's cup, the first race
of which will be sailed on Thursday.

A Plain Talk.
It is useless to "beat about the bush" in speaking or writing of this
terrible scourge. Plain talk is best. These cold types, used by a
master ever so bluntly, cannot suffioe to hammer home the dreadful
dangers of Blood Poison. Not being able to talk as plainly in a family
newspaper as is necessary, our best use of THIS space is to plain-talk
HOPE to the man or woman who is afflicted with blood poison. Don't
waste another minute worrying your physician or yourself over the CAUSE
of your trouble. You can GET blood poison (often innocently) in any
one of a dozen ways; YOU CAN GET RID OF IT IN JUST ONE WAY,
and that's the plain-talk truth.
For fifteen years Dr. Norcross has been using Serum Toxin treat
ment for the COMPLETE eradication of blood poison from the human
system. For fifteen years the unending procession of stricken patients,
discouraged and disgusted with the so-called Hot Springs and other
"treatments," has turned to the only cure known to medical sclenoe-the
serum toxin-discovered by Dr. Norcross. They came with shame-faced,
shiftless mein, and were discharged with brightened eye-with the
upright, fearless vigor of restored health-with renewed courage, with
mankind's richest blessing-PERFECT HEALTHI They came to me
for HOPE and they found it.
If YOU have blood poison-if YOU are timid about going among
people by reason of having sores on your face, head or hands-if YOU
have nerve-wrecking headaches-if YOU have pains in your arms and
legs almost too hard for human endurance-come to me at once. I
will cure you just as truly and certainly as I have the hundreds of other
sufferers from blood poison whom I have discharged entirely well. You
are probably willing and anxious to pay a fair and moderate sum for
your complete cure-for the peace of mind you will have when this
terrible load is lifted from your mind.
If you will only remember that Dr. Norcross is ready to cure you
-READY WITH THE ONLY CURE FOR THIS DISEASE-you will
bless the day that he had this plain-talk with .you.
