It would neither be Just nor fair to al low «, boxer of Lavlgno'» ability and rec ord to pa«» without a few kind word)* In testimony of hl» real worth. He differ» liom a majority of professional boxers because ho bus not spent this life In rlotoi s living, and his passing as a champion wo» . .. ... , [ not the result of d s»li«at on. His career In , , . . the ring has been a v remarkable Starting out when he was IS years old, I one. only 5 feet 3V5 Inches In height he was dubbed the Saginaw Kid by ht» admlreis In titu> State of Michigan. HI» first profes sion«! fight was with George Slddons. a slasher, tut 13a pounds, nt that time, March 1. 1SS9. and the bout wa» declared a draw after seventy-seven rounds. He met Bid den» six weeks later In a return bout, which wa» also declared a draw after lifty-tlvo rounds. On November 20. 1891, after a rest of two years. In which Lavlgno studied tho finer points of boxing, ho mot Joo Do Halo, then the Pacific coest champion. The bout w.is scheduled for thirty rounds and was be fore tho Pachte Athletic Club In Sin Francisco. Tho writer was a guest of the Olympia Athletic Club In Frisco at the time and was at tho ringside. Money w.is freely waged that the Saginaw Kid would not stay ten rounds. He not only was there at the finish, but luid «Il tlie best of ,lw bist seventeen rounds and earned 1oclslon. This was a great achieve, ment, as De Soto was of the Corbclt-V«n Court eohool olid a very clover boxer. from that dato Lavlgno'« record was a succession of victories. Ho bod wort tho American lightweight championship and was regarded as Invincible, ln 1E95 Joe Walcott tlho Barbadeas wonder, who weighed about 145 pounds, bail thrown down the gauntlet to Corbett, Fitzsim mons—In fact, all tho mlddlo and heavy weights. Lavlgno. who was yearning for more fields to conquer, took up the detl and agreed to moot Walcott at 138 pounds, Ihe latter to knock l-avlgne out to win. Walcott Jumped at the chance. The bout ms fought at Maspetb. December 2. 18.5. and proved to be itho most, remarkable fight of the century. Walcott failed to knock Lavlgne out after having the Michi gan lightweight groggy In the seventh, eighth and ninth rounds. In tact. Lavlgne came bock In the succeeding rounds and gave Walcott such a lacing that It was ns much as Tom O'Rourke could do to keep f'"' Bar bn doe« wonder In the plug. He wanted to oniwl through the ropes at the c,1,i " f the twelfth round und only a shln jfng Smith and Wesson, which had been carelessly laid on a «tool In Walcott's cor I nor. kept him In the ring. Lavlgty jiur tieyed to England the next year and beat Dick Burge In seventeen rounds In on in U-rnatlonal match. He. however, never the same 1 «vigne after Ihe Walcott content; neither ms the negro tho great terror of the ring thereafter. Apparently both bad fought themselves to a stand still and from that date began to go back. Prior to Saturday night Ixivlgue hud not fought for nearly five years. Ho has hem in France for »•venal years teaching: box mg in connection with latente, and It was apparent that Ids role of an instruc tor had not helped him any ns a ring contestant, ell was always a credit to the American ring.

NOVEL CURE FOR COLDS Healing Medication That it Breathing, Giving Much Relief. It seeima Just as ridiculous to put nw ji c | ne lnto the manvach 4o eure a cold in the head or Jung» as tt does to ou t in the rain It we want to keep j r y. The fact that many people right In Wilmington cough and hawk and ;,nuf fle for daya and weeks after they treat cold with the usual stomach dosing, shows how valueless are the ordinary cough and cold cures. The right way to cure a cold In the head or a rough and irritation in the throat and lungs, is by breathing Hyomel'a medicated ulr. Put a few drops of Hyomel'ln the neat pocket In haler that comes with every outfit and breathe this healing air for a f«w timet nnd Immediate relief will be noted. The medication goes right to the spot where the disease germs are located all ^ renders them harmless in the fu ture. the same time the soothing and healing effects of Hyomei an the irri tu ted mucous membrane give quick re lief, and the cough or cold is broken up The beat evidence of tbW great value of Hyomei 4n curing coughs, colds pad all bronchial troubles is the fact that Z. James Belt gives an absolute guar antee with every outfit he sells, that it it does not give satisfaction, the money will -be refunded. A complete Hyomei outfit, consisting of a bottle of Hyomei. the inhaler, and a medicine dropper, costs but 31. while extra bottles of Hyomei, if needed, can g, obtained for only 30c. t SAMUEL LEES COMPANY S.
