The Secret
The secret of strength is perfect digestion. This
applies to mental strength as well as p' ysical strength
and is perfectly logical if you think about it for a moment.
Johann Hoff's Malt Extract always successfully helps
digestion. Indeed, it is the perfect assimilator of food
Every person who takes Johann Hoff's Malt Extract with
his meals will realize the difference. Not only is ihe dis
tress gone from the stomach but there is also the unmis
takable prompting of strength and energy because the
nutrition in the food is penetrating to every portion of
the body.
Johann Hoffs
MaJt Extract
is not a stimulant with a reaction. It is a glorious aid to
natural laws. In fact, it makes natural laws operative ar.d
never disagrees with any ope. These statements are facts,
and the unimpeachable record of over half a century
proves it. You won't find weaklings, physically or men
tally, among those who use Johann Hoff's Malt Extract
with their meals.
EUGENE SANDOW, the strongest man in the
world, writes:
" The secret of my strength is perfect digestion. I
use Johann Hoff's Malt Extract and find that it always
aids me in the proper assimilation of food."

The Great Cresceus 2:021-4. Champion of the World
There is a great interest in the com
ing appearance here of the champion trot
ting stallion, Cresceus, in an attempt to
lower his own and the world's trotting
record of 2:02*4. Oeorge H. Ketcham,
owner and driver of the great trotter,
when yet a very young man, was in deli
cate health. An outdoor life seemea the
proper thing, and a natural love of horses
attracted him to driving. The game be
gan to be interesting with the acquisition

MicliiKnu and Either Minnesota
WiNCoiiHiu the Only Answer
to the UiieNtiou.
"With the feeling that Minnesota has a
championship team this year, admirers
of the maroon, and gold are beginning to
talk of a postseason game with Michigan.
as they feel that that will be the only
way to settle the western championship
question, once the badgers are out of the
way. There is the rub, of course, and
the Minnesota management refuses xo say
much as to postseason matters until the
16th of November has been passed with
safety to the gopher colors. The very
fact that they indicate a desire to wait
until after that date before saying any
thing points, however, to a desire on
their part to have the question of the
western championship definitely settled,
especially should Minnesota win from
However the early games result, there
in a feeling in western circles generally
that the question should be settled. The
Chicago Tribune of yesterday voices this
sentiment and calls attention to .the fact
that both Michigan and Wisconsin have
light schedules. Assuming that Wiscon
sin is to win from Minnesota, this would
leave the way clear for the wolverines .to
meet "the badgers. The former have no
more hard games this season, unless the
Carlisle Indians and lowa are to be con
sidered hard. The former will probably
not be; about the latter there seems to be
some doubt. lowa will have some good,
stiff work on her hands before she meets
Michigan, so that Michigan will have the
advantage to some extent in preparation
and in less risk to her men. All things
considered, therefore, Michigan has noth
ing in the way to prevent a game with
any rival claimant for championship
honors. Wisconsin has games with Ne
braska, Minnesota and Chicago. The
first two may give her hard work; the
Minnesotans will certainly do so. Min
nesota, on the other hand, has the lowa
game next Saturday, lowa now being in
the best form she has shown this year,
and then in order, games with Wiscon
sin, Northwestern, Illinois in close suc
cession at .the end of the season—Nov.
16, 23 and 28 respectively. Wisconsin
has the advantage in having no game
scheduled for Nov. 23. In a postseason
game, therefore, Minnesota would seem
to be at some disadvantage. Still with
Wisconsin out of the way, there is little
doubt but that the knights of the maroon
and gold would be willing to have a try
with the wolverines to settle all ques
tion to supremacy, if such a game would
fairly do it. It is safe to say that if
such a game should be played it would
draw a crowd such as has never been
seen at a game of football in ,the entire

toward arranging for a postseason game,

lowa is going to bring a big crowd to
see the game. Strange as it may seem
that "hunch" of Manager McCutcheon's
has strengthened the confidence of the
hawkeyes immensely, and now there Is
talk not only of victory but of keeping
their goal line uncrossed. Minnesotans
feel that it will have to be an awfully

Special to The Journal.
lowa City, lowa, Oct. 22.—Manager Mc-
Cutcheon tells the following story of how
his "hunch" came:
It was a little late in coming but it is here
now. I was writing a football article for the
Daily lowan and was thinking about rail
road rates to Minneapolis next Saturday when
all of a sudden I had the feeling in my bones
and I danced and shouted for Joy. It has
never been known to fail. Dr. Knlpe believes
in "hunches" and has asked me anxiously
many times this year if I had gotten one this
year. The "hunch" said, besides the glad
Cresceus. With the years came the am
bition to own a great trotting horse, and
as Cresceus early showed all the points
for making a record, Mr. Ketcham, who
had bred and trained him, now allowed
himself a word of praise for his stallion.
At first even his best friends laughed
when Georg* quietly remarked that he had
the fastest horse on earth, but their
cynical grins turned to smiles of admira
tion when the sorrel began to smash the
records as a 3-year-old. Since that time
he has justified all that Mr. Ketcham has
news that lowa would not be scored on by a
touchdown, that the worst had passed this
year. For two years our teams have had five
points scored on them regulrly. Chicago did
it in '99 by a place kick, Michigan did it last
year and the points have been scored al
ready this year. You see the inference.
It is probable that from 2,000 to 3,000
lowans at least will see the Minnesota
game. Thp- demand from alumni over the
state for information regarding rates has
been very great. Alumni of lowa at Ma
son City and other cities along the line of
the Burlington road have chartered cars.
The university will have a big rally and
torchlight procession Thursday night, the
evening the team leaves for Minneapolis.
A mass meeting of students will be held
on the campus in front of the old capitol
building, and after speeches from Coach
Knipe, Captain Williams, Manager Mc-
Cutcheon and other athletic authorities
who will go on the trip, the team will
be escorted to the depot. The lowa team
will arrive in Minneapolis, Friday morn
ing, and will be quartered at the West
hotel. Friday afternoon it will practice
on Northrop field, according to present
arrangements. The lowa rooters will
leave lowa City on the trains going north
after 12 o'clock, Friday noon.
Outlook Gloomy for Contest With
Diiliiili Saturday.
As a result of Friday's victory over Me
chanic Arts of St. Paul the Central team
experienced a severe relapse and "blue"
Monday was on with a vengeance. Cap
tain McCarthy, the life of the team, was
injured internally, and it is a question
whether or not he will be able to play
in the game Saturday with Duluth. The
team depends so much on McCarthy to
"fuss" the other side when on the de
fensive that the rooters will be chary
of backing the home team to win.
Trouble, as usual, comes in a bunch,
and Hunter, at right tackle, though still
in the game, is suffering with a bad knee.
Theis, the star halfback, who proved such
a ground gainer In Friday's game, is out
altogether with an injured side. He is
in poor condition, not having been in
training previous to the game.
On the other hand, the scrubs took on
new life yesterday and were able to stop
formations and break up interference
easily. They prevented the first team
from scoring in a fifteen-minute half and
succeeded in shoving Stowell over for a

lowa City, lowa, Oct. 22. —Dr. Knipe is
working his proteges overtime in order
to get them in shape for their hardest
game of the season next Saturday. Three
hours were put in at Athletic park last
evening, in punting, running through
signals, and bucking against the scrubs.
The Hawkeyes this afternoon play the
Coe college team from Cedar Rapids.
This team held the lowa scrubs down to
a tie, three weeks ago, at a score of
0 to 0, and is considered a good team to
strengthen lowa's defense. It is also the
object of the coaches to try new men in
this game. A large number of substi
tutes will be taken to Minneapolis, which
means that the hawkeyes will play their
! hardest game. ......
I In yesterday's practice a general shake
j up was made, in order to familiarize the
subs with the new signals. Folk, the man
• from Dcs Moines . college who recently
; came out and has been playing guard, was
| placed at center. With the exception of
■ his unsteady passing, .he plays a good
' game. Berry, who played center in the
i Drake game, two .weeks ago, while Briggs j
I was laid up with a wrenched- back, was
i put in at tackle.; Macy, captain of the
i second team, played fullback. He is an
\ exceedingly aggressive player and perhaps
I the best' punter at lowa, but his lack of
, endurance has prevented him from mak
ing the first team.. Jones, a very promis
ing man at halfback, was given a trial.
j These men, : with sub-Halfback Wilkins,
1 will accompany the team to :, Northrop
; field. "Jim" Brock way, the 200-pound
ex-guard, is here to.show the men on the
line how ,to '"hold I em." About. twenty
five scrubs were lined .up. against the
varsity to-night, and failed to make a
touchdown. •■ The lowa line ■is being

football team, for the first time, defeated the
University .of . Pennsylvania by the narrow
margin of 6 to 5. All the scoring was done
in the first half. „ „ L „..;..,'
The navy made the first score.; Belknap
kicked from niidfield to Howard. Howard fum
bled and Soule fell on the ball. Pennsylvania
was penalized five yards for offside play, thus
bringing. the ball on Pennsylvania's five-yard
line. Pennsylvania held twice for downs.
The ball was then on the four-yard line and
Nichols was' shoved over for a touchdown.
Strasburger kicked goal. •. . .'. . '. ■ .

promised for him, and to-day he holds
more world's records than any horse, liv

sas City yesterday and will go against
the half-mile track record on Thursday.
Mr. Ketcham will then ship the champion
direct to the Minnehaha Driving Park,
and on Thursday, Oct. 31, make the drive
for a new record over famous Mlnnehaha.
The course at 'Haha is in excellent condi
tion and should the day prove fair, there
is a good chance for Minnesota to give
the world a new trotting record.
Farlbault and the alumni of that and other
similar schools resulted in a victory for the
Faribault institution, the score being 33 to 0.
It was a hard-fought battle, the graduates
putting up a plucky fight. But they were

Fifty years ago as Dr. McLean treated the most complicated eases, earing «nd
