NIMRODS TO TAKE
TRIP TO RED ROCK
JOHN E. DAVIS, EMIL HANSON AND
FRANK CONVEY WILL LEAVE
,BUTTE TONIGHT.
The hunting season in Montans is now at
its best and many parties are leaving Butte for
a few days' trip through the woods and about
the lakes of the state. Tonight John E. Davis,
Emil Hanson and Frank Conley leave for Red
Rock lake, where they will spend a week.
Next Tuesday Thomas M. Hodgens and J. T.
O'Brien will join the party.
The ducks and geese are said to be unusu.
ally- plentiful on the lake this season. The
stport is reported to be the best in years.
While they are gone the hunters will stay at
the Montana Hunting club.
The hunting club has been in existence for
the' past 14 years. It is composed of Butte
men with two exceptions. The clubhouse is a
large roomy structure which cost $4,ooa 'IThe
grounds about the club comprise poo acres, all
of which is fenced.
The accompanying picture shows John E.
Davis on his Kentucky horse. It was taken
by II. H. Cross, the famous animal painter, in
s895.
At that hime Mr. Cross was engaged in
painting a number of horse pictures for the
late Marcus Daly, some of which may be seen
today in the Ravalli hotel at Hamilton, and in
the Montana hotel at Anaconda.
Mr. Cross was 6a years of age, but was very
fond of hunting and was enthusiastic as a
boy. While he was painting the famous ltam.
burg and Tammany and other notables of the
turf, he spent considerable time hunting
throughout the state.
It was while the party was staying at Bel.
mont Park, the wellknnwn ranch of W\. II.
Raymond, in Madison county, that the accom
panying photograph was taken.

BUTTE DOGS IN THE
COURSING AT KEARNEY
DY ASSOCIATED PRESS.
Kearney, Neb., Oct. 24.-The Mississippi
Valley coursing game met yesterday
without a winner in the all-age stake and
the money was divided. This was neces
saty because of lack of time and the
supply of jackrabbits running short.
The first ties in the all-age stake were
run off, the winners including Yours
Truly, Black Boy and Northern Express,
Grace Greenwood, Confidence, Cloudburst
end Charming Thought, owned by Blake
and Smith of Butte.
KID FREDERICKS. AT FIRE
Havre, Oct. 24.-Kid Fredericks, the
light-weight boxer who knocked out Jack
Clifford at Helena a short time since, had
a narrow escape from death at the fire
which burned the Havre Press building.
Fredericks was one of the hardest work
&ng of the volunteer firemen, and while
close to the building came near being
buried under the walls as the hook and
ladder company was tearing it down.
My Treatment of
ANAEMIA
AND ALL FORMS OF MALNUTRITION.
INVOLVING NEURASTHENIC
CONDITIONS
IS THE MOST
MODERN AND RAPID
Competent authorities now assert that a large percentage of the oases
of simple anaemia will be found to have a neurasthenic origin; even where
the anaemia is directly due to malnutrition, involving faulty conditions of the
stomach and intestinal tract, there is always a more or less serious impair.
ment of nerve tonicity.
The old. method of treating these conditions with ordinary stimulants
and tonics do little beyond exhausting tissue activity and helping to debili
tate the nervous and blood systems.
The various forms of iron, cod liver oil, malts, phosphates and ordinary
mediolnes that are generally given in these conditions do little but disor
ganize the sensitive digestive organs without building up the system as is
intended. 'My new lymph treatment builds up every organ of the body with
out loss of time,
There is no abnormal condition that afflicts the human body for
which more remedies are offered than for the variety of affections generally
designated as nervous diseases.
NEURASTHENIA and Nervous Prostration
I doubt if there was ever a being born who passed from childhood to
mature age without encountering some form of these troubles.
Nervous and prostrated people should consult without delay a doctor
that is treating hundreds of such cases and making them his special
study.
It costs you nothing for a talk, If you do not need treatment you
will be told.

If you are afflicted with any chronic, nervous or private disease
and wish a quick cure, carefully consider the above facts and consult
the doct r before taking treatment elsewhere.

SIDE LIGHTS ON THE
DAY'S SPORT NEWS
Leave it to James Edward Britt to coin
new phrases in the prize ring. While dis
cussing his coming fight with Canole in
San Francisco the other day, he said: "I
shall heqd him the blow soporific,"
Joe Corbett, a brother of Jim Corbett,
and the star twirler of the Californtia
league, is one of the players who opposes
the adoption of a "salary limit" in the big
baseball leagues. Corbett said:
"Players like l.ajoie, Waddell, Wagner,
Young and a few more are worth all the
money they demand. They draw the
crowds -to the grounds, and why then
should they not receive more money than
a player who is never heard of and cannot
draw enough money during a season to pay
for his sleeping car berths on the trips?"
Sounds all right. at that.
When Champion Jim Jeffries starts in
New York he will have no trouble in find
ing Jack Munro,c the miner pugilist.
Munroe says he will be pleased to have
a talk with the champion, and, if pos
sible, sign articles for a fight.
In an interview in Chicago Jeffries said
he did not believe Munroe could be in
duced to enter the ring with him.
W'hen Munroe read this he said:
"\\'ell, if Jeffries thinks I won't fight,
just let him show that he means business.
Nothing would suit me better than to
meet the champion. In fact, he is the one
man I have been anxious to fight ever
since our last battle.
"Jeffries has never, shown any inclina
tion to give me a return match, although I
have been after him for almost a year. I
will have to call off nmany others to meet
the chhnplion, but he can have a fight
whenever he is ready to sign articles.
"Jeffries is blufing wen he says I
don't want to fight him. Why, I wanted
to meet him in 'Frisco, but he put the mat
tcr off. He tried to get me to fight when
out of condition and I simply refused to
take the chance."
All Butte is interested in the zo-round
glove contest between Eddie Santry of
Chicago. and Aurelio Ilerrera, the Mexi
can, which is to take place next Thursday
night at Anaconda.
Everyone wants to see the scrap and
if all go who have said they will, it is
doubtful whether the theater will hold
them. The Mount liaggin club, under
whose auspices the contest is to be held, -
has made arrangements to seat about a,ooo
persons and it is estimated that fully
that number will attend.
Eddie Santry came off the road yester
day at Anaconda weighing just exactly
1a9 pounds and after his trainer had
rubbed hint down his manager, Teddy
Murphy. said to him: "lDon't work any
more today, for you are one piound ultnder
now and I don't want you to tmake tthe
weight until a tday or two before the tight.
This allowed Santry the rest of the day
to hinmself and he spent it with a party
of friends playing ping pnog and whist.
Santry's fight with Herrera will decide
the lightweight championship of the
Northwest and the people of Butte and
Montana in general swear by the Mexican,
who prides himself on never having been
defeated in Montana.
Any time HIerrera fights in this section
of the country he is backed heavily to willn,
and it is thought that his friends will -.et
their pile on hinm this time, too, although
there is a geteral feeling among those
who are well posted in such matters that
Santry will win.
The Chicago lad has certainly done his
share of fighting in his several years at
the game and he has fought and bled
with the best men of his time, from the
champions down to the fifth raters, and
successfully, too. his slashing ao-routnd
battle with (;eorge I)ixon, then the feather
weight champlion, and his Iknock-out of
Ben Jordan,. championl of Etngland, stamp
hiin as one of the best jo -rountd mleln in
the ring today. Santlry is in excellent
shape for thie hout with lierrera and is
very confidcnt of winninig.
Herera is pegging away at his training
quarters at Houlder, his hand is mtuch
better and his manager said last night
that his ittai woultd e in fit shape to wager
a million dollars on. lHerrera does no
bioxing w!tile he is working, in order to
rest his sore hand and most of his work
is done on the road. lie and Billy Woods
take their usual six-mile spin each morn
ing and in the afternoon they go out
hunting rabbits. Upon their return Her
rera does a few rounds of hag punchling
and this completes the day's work. The
Mexican has many visitors at his training
quarters.
Biddy Bishop is arranging dates for his
fighters in the East and he expects to
leave IMontana in a few weeks and will
stop at Kantsas City, I)etroit, Milwaukee,
Chicago, Philadelphja and Boston. Bishopt
has made application for matches for
Herrera with Young Corbett, Terry
McG;overn, Abe Attell, Benny Yanger,
tHughey Murphy, Jimmy Briggs and Tim
Callahan, and for his middleweight, Billy
Woods, he wants to get matches with
"Philadelphia" Jack O'hrien, Tonimny Ryan,
Joe Walcott and Young Peter Jackson.
It will be noticed that Bishop is after
the very toughest men in the business to
pit against his inen.
There is much curiosity to see Woods
in action here before the trip East is
begun and it has been suggested that a
match betweent Frank )unn and Woods
be arranged at one of the neighboring
cities. D)unn is well liked here since his
ao-round draw with Jerry McCarthy, and
there are many who believe lie could lick
most of the middleweights who are now
posing as champions. Dunn is somewhat
heavier than Woods, but it is not thought
that Bishop would object to a few pounds.
Eddie Croake is out with a challenge
to box any of the t58-pound men in the
Northwest. Croake is a good one and
has fought the best men in the business,
Billy 'Woods would make a good match
and the latter says he is willing to meet
Croake on any terms and will make a
side bet in the bargain if Croake desires it,
Teddy Murphy, manager of Eddie San
try, says that he has a man to match
against Billy Woods at Igo pounds. His
candidate for the colored boxer's scalp
is Tony Caponi, the undefeated Italian
middleweight of Chicago.
Teddy Murphy writes the sporting editor
of the Inter Mountain that lie will back
his man against Billy Woods for any part
of $5oo.
"Caponi has beaten everything In Mil
waukee and Chicago that weighs from
145 to 155 pounds," says Teddy, "and
I think he can beat Biddy Bishop's bogey
man.
"I would like to mention, too," con
tinues Teddy, "that Biddy shouldn't laugh
too early over the possession of the best
that is at 138 younds. Santry is in better
condition than he has been for three years,
and I think he can heat Herrera easily,
"I notice in the Inter Mountain of
yesterday that Johnnie Ritchie wanted
to meet some man at 1as pounds. I will
match Billy Rotchford of Chicago against
him at any time for a side ubet. Rotchford

CHAMPION WISHES
TO FIGHT MUNROE
VERY ANXIOUS TO GET THE BUTTE
MINER INTO THE RWGO
FOR A BOUT.
New York, Oct. a..--Champion JelTries
is not very fond of lying idle and reports
,ay that he is to get on a mlatch with Jack
Munroe. It is not because the chalpliotl
thinks Munroe is a great tighter that he is
iianxious to tteet hin in the ring, but he
dislikes the idea of the miner pugilist
posinlg as his conqueror.
Jetlries wants to wipe out this allegeil
Sictory and it is his intention to force
Mtunroe to a fight,
Ever since Jetries dlefended his title
nfainst Corbett he has beet taking thinlgs
easy at his hIone in i.o0 Angeles. Most
of his time has been taken up in huntitng.
The big boilermaker delights in hIluit ii
big game, lie prefers the mIatitains to a
Broadway. Neither does the chaumpiont
care for theatricals. lie would much pre
fer to engage int a battle than to stand
before the footlights.
Jefries' dislike of the stage proahly
cost hint many thousanlds of dollars. as
he is the first champion who ever failed
to take advantage of a championship vice
toty by traveling over the coutitry, giving
boxing exhibitions. Ilowever, the winnling
enid of his San Francisco battle netted him
more that $t5.ooo, which will keep him
for a short time to comie.
Jeffries ii the greatest heavyweight
champ:lllioin the worl Ih:ts ever seen in
niatlie ways. So anxious is he to defendl
his title against all comters that he is al
wa;)y on the naggressive, and he furntisihes
the oldd splectacle of the champl)iOn rulln
nliln. after his opponents. There are int
man;iiy ambnlitious heavyweights rttlning
atiler Jeffries, for they know that the hig
fellow will take theni at their word and
siit articles so quickly that it might af
feet their hearts.
Never before has there iwent at cham
pion who was so willing to miix it ip with
