Talk About That Absurd Re
port From Minneapolis.
Prospects of the Local Ball Club for
This Season,
The Champion's Eetusal to Fight Under
Prke King Bales.
It is a question that won't be settled off
hand as to whether or not snakes or baseball
clubs are the subjects of the more sensa
tional stories. I am inclined to think that
the natio nal game will take none the worst
of it in comparison. Stories of the most
surprising and ludicrous kind 'regarding
baseball affairs are nowadays just as prolific
as the most sensational snake stories. It is
not long since we were told with much
seriousness that Von der Ahc's St. Louis
team would be transferred to "Washington.
That story, which might be called a good
sized whopper, was soon thoroughly ex
ploded. But another has been sprung and
even more sensational than the one referred
to. This time we are told that negotia
tions are going on for the transfer
of the Pittsburg Club to Minneapolis; indeed,
according to the story-tellers, the scheme is all
cat and dried. Were the story true, Minne
apolis might need all the .sympathy possible if
the team is so more successful in f utnre than
it has been this year. However, there is no
truth at all in the rnmor or statement, and it is
difficult to understand how such a stupid story
conld originate except it may be the result of
remarks made by poor Horace Phillips while
in his sad mental prostration. The story was
cent out from Minneapolis, and what puzzles
me most is the fact that the Minneapolis re
porters neTer asked what Pittsburg had to say
in thb matter. The story was, undoubtedly,
sent out in all seriousness, which really com
mands more than usual sympathy for the too
innocent credulity of the propagators
of the story. Doubtless, there hare
been sufficient of what the ancients
would call trials and tribulations in
the club to make everybody connected
with it sick and weary at heart. Probably no
team in the country has been more of a mark
for misfortune than Pittsburg has during the
season. Player after player has been dis
abled, and as a climax one of the ablest and
most gentlemanly managers in the country is
taken from the club by a sad illness. This is
discouraging, and It would be no surprise to
me if the present directors were to err
"enough" and sell out. But it would be arrr
prise if the club's franchise were to go so far
west as Minneapolis. We can rest assured
that there is plenty of money in Pittsburg to
buy the franchise and players from the present
owners were they disposed to sell. Why, the
League would never for a moment think of los
ing a city like Pittsburg. If it aid, depend
upon it, the Association would soon be on the
Manager Phillips' Illness.
The very sad turn which the sickness of Man
ager Phillips has so suddenl) taken is no doubt
a great surprise to all True, he has recently
displayed symptoms that recalled by present
circumstances would hare suggested a pending
mental derangement, but few, if any, of us
ever dreamt that the affliction would terminate
so seriously. All authorities unhesitatingly
aver tbat recovery is impossible, but according
to the old saying, as long as there is life there
is hope. However, it mar be safe to say that
Horace will not be a manager of a baseball
team again, should be recover, and in losing
him the club lose as able a man as can be se
cured. The public will proDably never know
the amount of work that Manager Phillips did
in one way and another. His mind was ever as
restless as the waves of the sea: be was ever
concocting and working out schemes tor the
financial success ot the club, and his work was
never half hearted. His whole mind and en
ergy were always devoted to anything he took
in hand. White there was nothing about him
of a brilliant nature, never did a more patient
more honest, more original, or shrewder man
manage a baseball team. His work will be
missed. While others did their work amid a
flourish of trumpets, Horace aid greater things
The Home Team's Prospects.
Undoubtedly the home team is in a sorrow
fnl plight. Probablv a more unfortunate lot of
ball players never set out :to contest for the
League pennant. It seems as if the club has
been battling tooth and nail against fate from
the first week of the season, and in the natural
turn of events a change ougbt to take place.
There are no indications, however, tbat would
lead us to expect any great change for the bet
ter. The old fault, ana a great one, is still in
existence. The pitchers are weak, in fact at
the present time there is only one pitcher that
can be relied on. Our old friend Galvin is
somewhat out of line at present, and while be
is pitching with considerable force, the results
are very disheartening. It is not expected that
Garfield will be of any use to the
cluD this year whatever he may be next if he is
retained. So far, Howe and White have not
ouly been disappointing to the public but also
to themselves. I'm sure that nobody feels
their mistakes more than themselves; but they
will get down to steadier work, and if we could
once get our pitchers in form there might be
hope for a good position in the race yet. How
ever, as matters look now I don't expect the
local team to finish better than sixth place. It
cannot beat Chicago or Cleveland out and it
will have to struggle to get ahead of Indian
spoils. True, Cleveland has had a tremendous
slide, but that is not the result of bad ball
playing. That club has, during the last week
or so, played some ot the most remarkable
games and lost. Wherever tnat team may
finish. Its first season in the League is a re
markable one. At any rate I am inclined to
think that the Cleveland! will easily keep ahead
of Pittsburg.
PfeflVr's New Book.
I am in receipt of a new book entitled
"Scientific Ball," by Fred Pfeffer, the
brilliant second baseman of the Chicago team.
Nowadays, when baseball books are almost as
numerous as guides to Europe, one has to be
guarded in passing an opinion on any of them.
However, 1 have read Mr. Pfeffer's neat llltlo
volume, and I can conscientiously say that it is
a very useful addition to baseball literature. It
is very well written, indeed, and tbat pedagogue
rtjle which characterizes many books is absent.
The book is full of useful information, and
contains a biography of the author by Mr. De
Witt Bay.
Sullivan's Arrest.
John L. Sullivan, now commonly called the
champion of pugilistic champions, has finally
been arrested for participation in the late prize
fight for the championship. Undoubtedly the
event that is, the arrest has been one of the
great affairs of the week, and doubtless has
surprised many people. It certainly will have
a great effect on prize fighting in America, and
may to a very great extent oe the means of
preventing any more championship contests
outside ot some privileged club. But there are
some very inconsistent features about the
arrest, features well worthy a little .comment.
A question which will undoubtedly strike
all of ns the very first moment we
think ot the matter is: Why was the
fight allowed to take place at all if Governor
Lowry is such a determined man in enforcing
law? He and bis subordinates bad any amount
of warning, and yet there wasn't the slightest
interference with the contest. I once beard a
very able judge say that it certainly was the
duty of officers of the law to prevent crime,
and not wait until It was committed to get a
case. We can set it down as a certainty tbat
if anything like a reasonable effort had been
made by Governor Lowry to stop the battle it
would not have taken place in his bailiwick.
This fact really does detract considerably from
the earnestness and honesty of purpose of the
present proceedings.
A Benefit to Snlllvan.
It has often been said that it is am ill wind
that blows nobody good, and It teems that the
arrest of John L. will work to bis great benefit:
ndeed, many people are convinced tbat the en
tire proceeding is a "put up" affair to advertise
the champion previous to bis starting ont on
his boxing and athletic tour. While I cannot
bring myself to believe that such is the case. I
firmly hold the opinion that the affair will re
sult In great profit to Sullivan and thoso inter
ested in his projected tour. After the proceed
ings are-all over and Sullivan goes South on a
tour bo will, to use a common phrase, coin
money. There are thousands ot people in the
country who will look upon him as a martyr for
the sport of pugilism. At any rate,
the advertising that he will get
will be worth many thousands of dollars,
and If he can keep his head level amid all the
Jirospects of wealth he will donbtless net a
landsome fortune. It cannot be expected that
Kilrain will be allowed to go free; if be is a
shrotrd man be will follow the examplo of Sul
livan and face the music The general opinion
seems to be tbat a fine will be all the penalty
imposed. This may be so. but it will add an
other strange feature to the case if. after pur
suing the pugilists all over the country, tbey
are taken to Mississippi simply to be fined and
receive a little admonition. If after tbe two
gladiators have passed through the legal or
deal they could arrange a series of public box
ing exhibitions they certainly would drag in
the dollars to almost an unlimited extent. It
is not likely, however, that the lion and the
lamb will play together.
The Championship Claim.
Want of space prevented my saying anything
last week about Smith's challenge to Sullivan
and the former's claim to the championship.
However, I can speak more definitely on tbe
matter now, as Sullivan has publicly declared
his intention to participate in no contests in
future except "fair stand-up fights, face to
I ace-"This settles the question beyond all doubt,
and for the life of mel cannot see why Sullivan
should any longer lay a claim to the champion
ship. Of course we all know that his reference
to "face to face" means Queensberry rules. I
thick the question is a very simple one to argue.
Kilrain and Smith fouebt for the champion
ship under the old-time and recognized prize
ring rules. The battle was a draw. Then Sul
livan, under the same rules, fought Kilrain
and won the championship. Let us bear
in mind tbat tbe rules were tbe same that all
champions fought under, probably with one or
two slight changes. But when Sullivan has
followed in the wake of other champions and
won the highest title under the recognized
championship rules he declines to risk the title
except under different conditions than those
under which he won it. I submit that there is
no justice in a proceeding of this kind, nor is
tbero any precedent. If the question was sub
mitted to any 12 disinterested men in the world
who know anything at all about pugilism. I
venture to say that not one would vote in Sulli
van's favor. It is. therefore, clear to me that
if Sullivan persists in his determination to not
ficht again under prize ring rules he has no
claim whates er on the championship belt. But
what does Sullivan's resolve mean? It means
to a great extent prize flghtlngin a more brutal
form than we have had it. Only bullies
and men of brute strength talk about "face to
face" fighting. For Generations it has been
taught tbat there is science and art in protect
ing one's-self with the weapons nature bas
giveti.us. This art and science allows little
men to bold their own against big men, pro
viding there is room and opportunity, accord
ing to rule, to out-maneuver the big man.
There is something scientific and fair In these
conditions, but when a man of brute force in
sists that his opponent shall bn compelled to
stand in front of him until he is almost bat
tered to death it is time to draw the line. It is
not fighting; it is butchery. Sullivan's declar
ation simply means tbat be thinks he can pul
verize everybody under Queensberry rules. We
have known this for some time; but his declar
ation also means tbat be has little regard for
prize-ring rules, and we may take that to mean
that he is not at homo under them. We have
also known tbat ever since he fought Mitchell.
However, it may be that he will change bis
mind and adopt a policy more creditable to the
prize ring.
English Criticism.
In a long criticism of the Sullivan-Kilrain
fight Henry Sampson (Pendragon), of the Lon
don Jieferee. says:
A few lines before we are told of the way in
which Sullivan jumped on Kilrain while the
man appointed to see fair took no notice, the
same report informs us that Sullivan was seized
with "a fit of vomiting, which lasted several
minutes," and that while it was on "Kilrain
manfully stood in tbe middle of the ring and
waited until he recovered himself." This is
carrying chivalry to an extreme: In Its way the
story of Kilrain'. magnanimity is, it true, as sin
gular as the storv or Sullivan's brutality which
came as reward for and sequel to it. The first
dntyofaprlze fighter is to win, by fair means if
he can; if noVjby" foul means, providing the ref
eree will allow'tu This Is an understood law in
prizefighting, and Is tbe reason why it is neces
sarv to exercise so much care in the selection of a
governing official. According to tbe un
written bat none tbe less existent pugilistic
code of honor. Kilrain fully deserved
jumping on for having neglected to secure the
battle monev and tbe bet money as well what
time bullivan was seized with sickness. Seeing
his chance. Kilrain ought to have pommeled
blm without stint or mercy, it is not so long ago
tbat I was discussing with a fighter still alive the
merits of another fighter now dead and gone, said
lighter whol still alive having been some years
ago regarded as easily chief among seconds,
bald he: "Hell, you see. guv'nor, lilU K. never
possessed hair enough devil lor a fighting man. I
remember when be fought Joe G it was an awfnl
wet day, and they used to be constantly down
together. I was a-secondlng BUI, and so I says to
him, says 1: Vheu you're down on the ground
get some mud in your hand, and as you struggls
try and rub It In his blooming eye that'll give
you a decided advantage ' Ana what do you
think tbe blasted fool said, guv'norr Wbv, he
said: -'.No, old man, I won't do that: if I can't
win fair I won't win foul, lorn.' And yet they
called him a fighting mac-yahl-rot I call it!"
Another Good Story.
Mr. Sampson continues: This remind! me of
another story, which I may as well tell while
my hand Is in the basket. Probably some of
tbe more ancient among readers of this may re
member Fred Mason, otherwise the Bulldog,
one of whose claims on recognition over and
above his extraordinary staying power was
that of being brother to Harry Boleno, tbe
famous Drury Lane clown. I didn't know
Mason in bis fighting days, but can well recol
lect his hanging about the sporting houses, a
little wizen old man, with a nose that looked
as though It had been beaten all over bis face
with a sledgehammer. Remarking to an old
timer on this peculiarity and you couldn't very
well help remark on it the o. t. said In reply:
"Yes, it was a rare smash, and was done by Jack
Walker when Fred was groggy, in their fight
Vagshot way. Seeing Fred was In quite a daze
and was tottering toward him, Jack drew himself
together and landed one of the most awful bits on
the nose I ever saw glTen. borne of the people
looking on hissed, and so Jack, who was
always fond of making a speech, tarns
round as Fred was being nicked up.
and he says, Genelmen." says he. 'wnatwas I to
do? This is a most dangerous man: Bill Jones
had him clean licked, and then because BUI dlan't
finish blm off, butshowed pity ouhlm,he recovers
and goes and beats 11111 Jones. I knows what's
my duty to my backers, genelmen.' Kesult Im
mense enthusiasm lor Johnny, or. as we used al
ways to call him, Jack, Walker." If I had more
space and more time 1 could tell you lots of other
stories, every one of which would go to prove tbat
if it la true that K'lraln. though having all the
worse of tbe fight, waited iq tbe middle of the
ting for sevcraUnlnutes while bullivan was being
sick, be fully deserved all that happened to him.
Jumping on included, as soon as bullivan recov
ered. The Grnnd Circuit.
The Inaugural trotting meeting of the Grand
Circuit at Cleveland during tbe week has been
a great success in every respect. The racing was
In many respects extraordinary, and Its high
quality naturally atracted Immense crowds. The
success of the meeting augurs well for the success
of the entire circuit. There are some phenomenal
horses out this season, and wonders like Axtell,
Brown Hal, Hal Pointer. Thornless and Jaca will
always draw big crowds. We may prepare our
selves to hear of many surprises before the circuit
Is finished. Fbingle,

The Local Team Beaten Again by the
Cleveland's Defeat tlie Chicagos in an Ex
citing Game.
General Baseball Kews of the Day Interesting Ama
teur Games.
Once more the home" team was downed
yesterday by the Hoosiers. The gamewas
a poor one, both as regards fielding and
pitching. The "Washington tailenders
again defeated the League leaders from Bos
ton, and Cleveland beat the Chicago. New
York had an easy time beating Philadel
phia. Dr. Foster says there is hope for the
recovery of Manager Horace Phillips.
The local ball team gave another exhi
bition of their proverbial and rare style of
ball playing yesterday afternoon. This
class of exhibitions have been numerous of
late, but yesterday's deserves a very promi
nent place in the list. Yesterday's wort of
the home players, and also that of a few pre
ceding days, does admirably as a means of
showing what a wide difference there is be
tween good, bad and indifferent ball playing.
Had the Pittsburg club never been organ
ired the local public would have been de
prived of seeing a style of playing that con
trasts with good playing, and enables us to
see clearer and appreciate more the quali
ties of the latter. It is easy, therefore, to
see that, after all, what may be termed a bum
team has a mission to fulfill.
The public is evidently wearying of the ridic
ulous defeats as the smallest Saturday crowd
tbat has ever been on the grounds was pres
ent to see the Hoosiers presented with another
game by tho local heroes. There was nothing
particularly different in the game from what
was seen in the previous four games.
Both teams played bad ball, but the home
players were determined to come out best on
that score; tbat is they struggled bard and suc
cessfully to do a shade or two worse than the
visitors." Tbe little crowd of 800 evidently were
out for fun, as everybody seemed to enjoy tbe
mistakes and shortcomings ottbe AlvlnJoslin
)It is an open question as to whether or not
the absence of heavy hitting and presence of
errors on the one slue; or the ineffective pitch
ing: of Staler on the other contributed most to
'the defeat. At any rate tbe two combined
settled matters quite comfortably. Tbe result
might have been different had Beckley not
made a palpable mistake in the eighth inning.
However, if the "if philosophy is gone into it
,s easy to show bow a long list of defeats could
have been victories. Yesterday Staley was
quite a mark for tbe Hoosiers and it is evident
that be is not a three-game per week mac
Getzein was also touched up lively, but not
sufficient to win. The fielding on both sides
was loose,and altogether thegame was far from
being a model one.
Hostilities as usual opened quite cheerfully
for the home team. Jocko Fields, who played
in place of Hanlon, thnmped out a two-bagger
to left. Carroll popped up a fly to Bassett and
Beckley sent Fields home ou a long single to
middle. Miller knocked a grounder to Denny,
who threw Beckley out at second.
Rowe then knocked out a fine single to mid
dle and Miller, who had stolen second and
third, scored. Sunday continued the fun and
rapped out a single to left, Bowe going to sec
ond. Kuehne kept tbe kettle boiling by bang
ing out a long single to middle, and Rowe
scored, Sunday reaching third. Alter Kuehne
had stolen second Dunlap flew out to Glass
cock. In the third inning Miller led off with a single
to middle, and Bowe reached first on a fumble
by Glasscock. Rowe started to steal second,
and Miller was foolishly coached away from
third and was nabbed at the plate. Sunday
struck out and Kuehne loomed up with one of
his three-baggers to right field, Rowe scoring.
Beckley opened up the fifth inning, and
reached first on a wild throw by Getzein. He
got second on a passed balL Miller flew out to
Myers. Rowe got his base on balls and got to
second on a wild throw of Daily. Sunday
made a long hit to right field, sending in both
Beckley and Rowe. The home players never
looked like scoring again.
The visitors also started ont well. Seerv got
his base on balls and got. to third on Glass
cock's two-bagger to right field. Denny's lone
fly to Sunday enabled beery to reach home and
Glasscock scored on Hines' single to right.
Bassett started more run-getting in tbe second
Jnmng. He made a safe bit to right, and Get
zein struck out. Beery came next with a good
single toward Fields and Bassett went to third.
Seery stole second and both runners scored on
Glasscock's long single to right. Denny then
made a hit and Hines reached first on a fumble
by Dunlap.
The bases were now full. Dot Staley struck
Myers out and Dally flew out to Fields. After
Glasscock was out in the fourth inning Denny
made a single to left field, and Hines followed
with one to right, Denny going to third. Hines
stole second and Myers knocked a long fly
over tbe right foul line. Sunday caught it,
but Denny scored on the throw in. Daily was
struck out.
Tbe score was now 6 to 5 in favor of the home
team and continued at that until tbe fatal
eighth. Glasscock, who was in batting humor,
led off for his side and banged out a slnglo to
richt field. ' Denny, another dangerous little
man, followed with a bit to middle. Glasscock
then made a splendid steal to third. Hines
fouled ont and Myers got his base on balls, fill
ing the bases. Dally sent out a long fly to
Fields and Glasscock tied the score on the
throw in. Denny going to third and Myers to
second. Then a fatal mistake was made by
Beckley. Bassett knocked a grounder to Roue
and the latter threw the ball to Beckley. He.
however, made a glaring muff ot tbe throw and
the ball went past bim, letting in two runs.
Had he held the ball tbe side would have easily
been out. The error ended the agony, bow
ever, at least nearly so, as tbe three local men
who went to bat were all retired in about two
minutes. Following is the score:

How They Stand.
More changes nave taken place in the League
3ennant race, as the following table will show.
The most important, probably, to local patrons
of the game Is that of Pittsburg dropping down
to seventh place. Undoubtedly the local team
has been playing worse than any during tbe
week. Cleveland is again battling hard for
third place, aud Boston has come down a little
in its percentage. TheChlcago team is making
a stubborn bid for a higher position, and is
playing well. Tbe Senators are also doing bet
ter. Following! the table of the standing up

Dr. Foster Thinks He Slay Recover Amid
Qnlet and Rest.
rsnciAi. raxxa bax to tsx dispatch, t
Philadelphia, August S. Poor Horace
Phillips is in an insane asylum. He was re
moved from the Girard House this morning at
an early hour to the private insane asylum of
Dr. Jones, at Mercbantville, ft. J. He was
accompanied by his wife, bis brother and Dr.
W. S. Foster, who came from Pittsburg to give
an expert opinion in the case. Mrs. Phillips is
a pretty little blonde woman. She is at the
asylum with her afflicted husband. Mrs.
Phillips has shown great fortitude in this great
affliction and has never left her husband's side
for three days.
She is greatly attached to Horace and in
sisted upon performing many services for him
for which a trained nurse had been hired, for
Dr. Foster does not agree altogether with the
diagnosis of tbe case made by Dr. Winfield 8.
Wolford, of this city. Tbe disease is acute
paresis, but Dr. Foster believes that there is
a chance of ultimate recovery. The rapid de
velopment of the disease does not seriously
alarm Dr. Foster and be is inclined to believe
tbat under expert treatment and amid the
quiet surroundings of tbe retreat to which he
has been taken be will greatly improve during
the next two weeks. Tbe condition of the
patient before leaving this city this morning
was slightly improved; his pulse was more
steady and his belief in tbe amount of his
riches had decreased. It appears that the
hallucination about riches grows with the
pulse. Dr. Foster returned to Pittsburg to
night but he will visit Mr. Phillips once a week
for tbe next month and be will be summoned
at once in case of a serious emergency.

A Big Crowd Expected to Greet Him
To-Day at Jackson.
Jinks Defeats Carman in the McKeesport
Quoit Match.
Ed Hlilrk Beats Jlephart la a Good Eace at
Sullivan will arrive at Jackson this morn
ing, and a large crowd is expected to meet
him. He has many- friends there and many
foes. Ed Nikirk defeated Bephart in a
quarter of a mile race, and Jinks won the
McKeesport quoit match. Jem Smith, the
English pugilist, still claims the world's
Jacksos-, Miss., August 3. The train
on which Sullivan is beingbrought to Jack
son by Deputy Chiles, reported on time,
and will reach here about midnight. The
coming of this rather notorious character
has created quite a stir in our little city and
vicinity, and no doubt a big crowd will
flock to town to-morrow with the hope of
gratifying their curiosity.
Sullivan seems to have friends in abund
ance, as there is no doubt that he will be
able to give bond even to the amount of his
late winnings atBichburg if necessary. One
party telegraphed that he would go on a thou
sand bond for hlm.While Sullivan is being made
a hero of by some, on tbe qther band many
others are not so great admirers of him. As
an instance, a prominent merchant of this city
when asked to sign Sullivan's bond by a large
New Orleans firm, declined to do so, saying he
was not in the nnir.
It Is very likely tbat in the Interim between
Sunday and the day of tbe trial at Purvis,
August 12, the Sullivan party will sojourn at
Cooper's Wells, a delightful summer retreat
about IS miles from Jackson; this is perhaps
with a view to keep Snlllvan straight until
after his trial.
Some Opinions About Smith and the Cham
pionship Belt.
London, August 3. Copyright.! The rac
ing at Goodwood, which is just over and which
winds up the London season, has not been up
to the average, as regards raclne, but the at
tendance has been large and more intensely
aristocratic than ever. The racing men and
women who were there have all scattered, most
of them to Portsmouth, Southsea and the
Isle of Wight, lor the naval review, whence
tbey will go to Cowes and Torquay for the
yachting, then to the continent, and. In fact,
all over the world, coming back next spring to
wake this bis town up again.
James Smith, the English fighter, who may
be described as a thick man, able to take pun
ishment but not to cive. it, bas developed a
humorous streak, in which he is encouraged
by some English papers. Having been knocked
around and fought a draw with a man who has
just been beaten by tbe only original cham
pion. Smith bas somehow got it into bis head
that he Is the champion, and is asklnc for that
unimportant bauble which advertises at slight
expense a notorious publication and Is called
the championship belt. No one here pays any
attention to Smith. Englishmen have come
around with unanimity to the opinion that
Sullivan, after all, is the kind of a man we
always said he was.

Do you know wbat a Watch Club is?
Thirty-debt persons each agree to pay SI per
week for 33 weeks. To determine who shall re-.
ceive the watches as they are paid for, a draw
ing is held, and tho lucky man receives his
watch. No one can draw more than one
watch. The drawings continue each week until
every one in the club has a watch, and as they
have all been paying a dollar a week, by tbo
time the last man receives his watch, all
watches are paid for.
We will exchange the Rockford for a watch
ot any other make, it with fair usage the Rock -ford
shall prove unsatisfactory. Our confidence
in Rockford watches is founded upon that sure
knowledge tbat can be derived only by actual
observation of them In the hands of hundreds
of our patrons who are carrying them. They
require less repair than that of any other
make, are stronger, and as to time come in
and we will give therhatnes or those who are

Stated Succinctly and AVltbout Comment,
From Which Yon Can Draw Your Own
Conclusions. ' V
It Is universally admitted that consumption
presents tbe greatest difficulty wblch confronts
the physician. No disease not an epidemic is
so generally dreaded no disease presents so
many accompanying functional derangements
of the entire system. The word consumption in
its general sense means a consuming; a decay
ing or wasting away of the lungs. To the physi
cian it is important to ascertain the peculiar
kind of consumption which affects his patient.
It is necessary, therefore, that he be informed
of the habits, employments, etc.. of his patient.
Is it bronchitis? is it disease of the lung sub
stance Itself? He must then treat it as tbe
peculiar conditions may require. There are
forms of consumption, though, which find their
exciting cause from the presence of irritating
particles in tbe lung substance, inhaled from the
mote-laden atmosphere In shops,mines,tactories
etc., and to which stone cutters, cutlers, coal
miners, knife grinders, btass workers, saw
makers, etc., are liable. Tbls form Is known as -chronic
fibroid consumption, and is due to par
ticles of fine dust being carried in the inspired
air and on its way to tbe little air cells depos
ited in the meshes of the fine velvety coating
of the large and small air tubes and air cells,
causing irritation, short, hacking cough and
sinking deeper and deeper Into the soft tissue,
inducing inflammation which involves tbe
glands, muscles, nerves, air cells and blood ves
sels, and finally extending to the substance of
tbe lungs. As tbe inflammatory process ex
tends mure and more tbe normal lung tissue is
changed into a hard fibrous substance and a
total obliteration of ner res, bloodvessels and
air cells takes place.
After a time this metamorphlc tissue softens
and degenerates into pus, which may appear in
tbe sputa or be absorbed into the lymphatic
system, causes in the late stages evenincfevers,
night sweats, loss of flesb,cougb,dyspeptlcsymp.
toms, general debility and shortness of breath.
Of course, with tbe formation of pus there are
cavities which gradually increase, and In time

These cluster in spots, and by their feeding -V
upon infiamed,. softened and relaxed lung-tis-'
sue, form cavities or boles In the lungs.
From tbe report of the pathologists to the
New York Board of Health, just published, we
are able to give the latest facts concerning this
disease. About one-fourth of all deaths oc
curring during adult lite are caused by con
sumption. A living germ called the tubercle
bacillus is tbe cause of tubercular consumption
this is a demonstrated fact. Tuberculosis
can only be caused by the entrance of the germ
into the body, so the old theory of hereditary
consumption is exploded; but transmitted
liability renders tbo individual a more easy
prey to tbe living germs when once they have
gained entrance.
The Tubercular Congress which met in Pans
last year were unanimous in declaring:
First That consumption is contagious, that
it can be transmitted from man to animals and
from animals back to man through milk and
meat. It is also communicated from person to
person by the saliva, sputa, etc
Second That consumption can be prevented,
the means of prevention being scrupulous
cleanliness regarding the sputa, hence con
sumptives should keep at hand a covered vessel
to expectorate in. or better, use cloths, which
should be instantly burned.
Third That the chief hope forjconsnmptire
Ires in climatic treatment, aided by good nour
ishing food ana medication. Right here is
where the beneficial effects of the Pneumatic
Cabinet treatment is shown. In tbe cabinet tho
patient receives any de
gree of ratification needed,
from 1,000 to 10.000 feet
above sealevei. For facil
itating tbe extermination
of these germs the cabi
net fulfills one of the most
essential features of cure.
When the pressure is re
lieved from around the
patient and from the great
er volume of air inspired
the lung cells are dilated,
a fine antiseptic vapor is
inhaled for a few minutes,
vhich penetrates Into the
recesses and pores, killing
these cerms. and they are
expelled in the air. ex
pired or expectorated with
the excretion from the lungs. This treatment
causes a greater expiratory power, gives great
er oxygenation' to the blood and a system of
lung exercise identical with that given the
muscles by clubs, dumb-bells and weights.
All who are frequenters of gymnasiums or
are interested in athletic sports will readily,
perceive the effect of this upon weak and un
developed lungs. By this system of treatment
those parts of the lung which have become
consolidated and partially dead are brought
into life by the gentle stimulus given the blood
by the greater expansive power thus engend
ered, and nutrition,which before bad been only
Sartlal, or, as in some cases, ceased altogether,
, again re-established, and the diseased part is
again enabled to fulfill Its function ot purging
tbe blood from Impurities. Inasmuch as tha
entire system braimbone and muscles derives
its nourishment from tbe blood and that the
lungs are at once the receptacle Into which tbe
blood empties all the impurities it bas accumu
lated in making its rouud. and is the source
from whence is distributed the nutritive ele
ments eliminated from food and air, the impor
tance of this restoration of an impaired or de
caying part is obvious. This, aided by the sys
tem ot medication, alimentation and regimen,
which includes the rational nse of food, exer
cise and of everything essential to the building
up of the strength of patients, adopted and per
fected by Dr. Byers, makes his claim that he
cures consumption where tbe disease has not
progressed too far. a perfectly tenable one.
Dr. Byers Invites Investigation of his method
ot treating diseases of the air passages, and
can give anyone desiring it the addreses of at
least six patients treated and cured of lung
trouble during the past two years, who ac
knowledge If it had not been for this treat
ment they would not be living to-day. Besides,
he bas many cases on bis books of patients
who were benefited, and whose lives are being
prolonged, but who cannot hope for a perma
nent cure, because they put off coming to him
until their lungs were too much impaired.
