0 NOT LAST LONG M.AJORITY OF BOXERS ARE VIRTUAL LY OUT OF IT BEFORE TURNING THIRTIETH MILESTONS. *In former years a pugilist was not con sidered in his prime until after he had passed 30o," said a veteran follower of the prize ring recently. "A fighter who is still at the top of his class after his 28th year is considered a wonder. Of course there are exceptions, as in the case of Bob Fitasimmons. He is certainly a well preserved man, and it will be many moons before we find another like him. Pitz is nearly 42, but he can fight as well as he did to years ago. Then there are (Tommy Ryan, Joe Choynski and Joe Wal cott. Choynski was never a champion, but he is a great pugilist, for all that. "Take the old-timers, such as Barney Aaron, Jem Mace, Doony Harris and others. They did their best fighting after they were 30. Then there was Joe God dard, Frank Slavin, the later Peter Jack son, Billy Edwards and Pete McCoy. John L. Sullivan was all in, so to speak, before he was 34. Kid McCoy is under 3o and has been forced to retire because, according to his own admission, he can not fight any more. George Dixon lost the featherweight title to Terry McGov rn when he was in his 3oth year. Mc Govern, in turn, was defeated by Young Corbett before he was as. Pedlar Palmer won the bantam championship of the world from Bill Plimmer when he was so, and gave way to McGovern four years later. Although Palmer is a38, he has been re garded as a las-been for some time. Billy Plimmer was compelled to quit the ring before he was 30. Kid Lavigne, one of the best light weights the arena has produced in the last decade, was all in before he was ao. Frank Erne, who succeeded him at the top of his class, went down before Joe Gans, the present lightweight champion, in his a7th year, and now he has retired. Jim Corbett was knocked out by Bob Fitz simmons and lost the heavyweight cham pionship when he was 3s. Tomni Sharkey, although only in his 3oth year, has been out of it ever since his last fight with Jim JeTffries in 1899. Sharkey always paid the strictest attention to his health, too. Star light, the veteran Australian middleweight, who has been the trial horse for a num ber of the foremost Australian heavy weights, past and present, is still fighting. Starlight is nearly So, but the youngsters have all they can do to beat him in de cisive fashion. "Harry Forbes, who is only a young ster, having been born in 1879, lost the bantam title to Frankie Neil a few months ago. Forbes has been fighting ever since 1897. Jack McAuliffe was not more than 31 when he retired. Gus Ruhlin, who was born in 1872, is still in the ring, but he has never shown much form since he was put to sleep by Bob Fitzsinmmons three years ago. Peter Maher has been out of it for years, although he is still a young man. He was born in 1869. The Sullivan brothers, Spike and. Dave, have bleen re ceding in form for years, yet neither of them is over 30. Kid McPartland of New York, who was expected to fill Kid. La vigne's shoes some day, has retired from the ring. McPartland was born in 1875, but he was forced to quit the ring a year ago, when he was knocked out by Joe Gans. "The method of modern pugilists in training and looking after their health is different from that which the old-timer used to undergo. Present day scrappers make twice as much money as some of the champions did in the past, and they live only for today." Hennessy's sale of men's fine underwear begins tomorrow (Saturday) morning. GUS GARDNER WINS BY ASSOCIATED PRESS. Lansing, Mich., Nov. r.--Gus Gardner won the decision over Doe Fitzpatrick in the roth round here last night. RHEUMAT ISM AN INDE8SRIBABLE TORTURE Because Rheumatism sometimes comes on suddenly it doesn't prove that it is a chance disease or one due to accidental causes. It takes time for it to develop, and is at work in the system long before any symptoms are felt. The blood, is the first point of attack, and the poisonous acids that cause the aches and pains are then distrib uted through the circulation to different parts of the system, and settle in joints, muscles and nerves; and when the system is in this condition it needs only some exciting cause like exposure to night air, damp, chilly weather, or the cold, bleak winds of winter, to arouse the slumbering poisons and bring on Rheumatism. The severity of the attack depends upon the amount of acid in the blood and the quantity of acrid matter in the joints and muscles. Some peo.

The thin acid blood must be restored to its normal purity and strength, so that all poi sonous substances may be carried out of the system, and no medicine accom plishes this in so short a time as S.S.S., which not only neutralizes the acids and counteracts the poisons, but builds up the general health at the same time.

THE SWIFT SPECIFIC CO., ATLANTA, CA, ERNE AND KID M'COY TWO CLEVER BOXERS ARE TO OPEN A ACHOOL FOR THE SCIENCE IN THE METROPOLIS. Buffalo, N. Y., Nov. t !.-What will un doubtedly be the largest and hest equipped of modern gymnasiums and physical cul ture schools in this country will be opened in the immediate vicinity of Broadway and lorty-secondl street. in the very heart of New York city, some time before January. It is to be conducted under the personal direction of two of the greatest and must scientific boxers the prize ring ever saw- Frank Erne, the lightweight champion of the world, and that famous of light heavy weights, Kid McCoy. These two noted celebrities of Fistiana will have as their pupils some of the most prominent mil lionaires of New York and many Wall street brokers. Negotiations for the opening of this physical culture school have been under way for the past three weeks. It is said that two prominent sporting men of New York, who have been connected with box ing for years, will back the venture. Ex Champion Erne and Kid McCoy will be the two instructors, assisted by other men of prominence in the line of developing muscle. It is the intention of the promoters of this school to conduct it on an expenslive scale. None but the wealthy will he sought as members, and the fees to be charged will bar the comtmnon clas.. The school will be located on Broadlway, if present plans carry, and will be on a Brodawy scale. It is said that hath Erne and McCoy will teach mboxing les sons and that special experts for other gymnastics have been engaged. Erne, who is at present at his home in this city, was visited by Kid McCoy sev eral days ago. McCoy was on his way back to New York after visiting his pa rents in Indiana. Erne and Mct('y spent a day at Erne's home at I.ewist,n. Final arrangements between the two were com pletedI before Mct'oy sttarted for G;othamn. Erne will depart for New fork shortly after "Thanksgiving da;y and will prsonl ally direct the fitting up of the gym nasitln.

In view of the movement started by the University of Chicago to secure the coop"era. lion of WVestern universities ill abollilshing gate receipts at etllege atclt contets, the follow. ing editorial in the illustirated Sporling News is timely: The systeln of aitdtissiton to the mo111st iimportant football galilie of the season has been opell to vigoroulis adverse criticism for many years.

But it is a system all wrong, accepted because custom has made it seem a matter of course. It is wrong because, the prices charged for tickets are extravagantly and absurdly high, and are fixed not by the student sentiment, but by the demands of pay for its annmusements. But hundreds of stutdents cannot afford to see their own university team play its important games, even on the home field. It is true that many thousands of grail. untes and others would pay even $5 a seat to see these great contests, but that is no reason why the undergraduale should he conlpelltel to "stand and celiver"t for the privilege of seeing his fellow-students engage in a branch of lport which is supposed to be organized and naintained for their benefit. When it comes to making the players and chaches pay the exorbitant prices for their ticket, the fiscal system suggests too much the operation of a "get-rich-quick" syndicate. If college sports cannot be carried on without such heaping treasuries for their expenses, itf' is timne to overhaul the systems and see where reductions can be made. If the admission fee to a reserved seat for undergraduates were made st, and the rate for the rest of the pat. ronage maintained at its present altitude, a beginning would be made in the right direc, tion,.

VERDICT FOR TOBACCO FIRM They May Sell or Refuse to Sell, Just as They See Fit. St. Paul, Nov. 13.-The United States court of appeals yesterday decided that the Continental Tobacco company did not violate the interstate commerce law or the anti-trust law when it refused to sell to Joseph P. Whitwell, a St. Paul tobacco dealer, its manutfactured product. The court says: "The tobacco company and its competitors were not dealers in articles of prime necessity, as corn or veal, nor were they rendering public or quasi-public service, like a railroad com pany. Each of them, therefore, has the right to refuse to sell its conmtodities at any price." BUTTI SHOEING rORGE 17 South Montana Stroot. EXCLUSIVE HORSE SHOEING SHOP W. Mc[achran, Prop.
