HO FIGHT IN ARKANSAS.
Governor Clarke Firm in His
Determination to Stop
WILL OVERREACH THE LAW.
Advises Sports Not to Visit the
State Expecting to See
LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Oct. 20.—Govern
or Clarke was interviewed at his home to
night. He was in cheerful spirits and
talked freely of the mill between Corbett
and Fitzsimmona and authorized the cor
responds m to .-ay for him :
"I am unchanged in my position. .There
is no possibility of a fight between these
two men at Hot Springs. The idea of two
or three hundred sports at Hot Springs
being able to pull off a prizefight in Ar
kansas when the law says they cannot do
it is preposterous in the extreme."
"How about Judge I.<:atherinan's de
'That doesn't amount to anything, as
stated in the papers here this morning,
only the word 'ruse' snould have been used
instead of the word 'rule.' I was expect
ing Corbftt would adopt some such ruse at
his habeas corpus trial in order to bring
the matter before the courts. Attorney-
General Kin s worthy left here for Hot
Springs this morning to get a complete
transcript of the case, and as soon as he
returns, which will bo to-morrow night," I
shall adopt effective measures that will
quickly terminate the present suspense. I
cannot say what I shall do, but you can
safely say that the figut will not take
place, and I think it would be but fair for
you to advise those people in the North
and East not to come to Arnansas expect
ing to see the fight, because it will never
come off in Arkansas."
FEAR AJf EXT I! A SESSIOX.
Ocvetmor 4tarl>c May Convene the Ar-
lea nsas Legislature,
HOT SPRINGS, Auk., Oct. 20.— Even
in prize-fighting circles this has been tne
inott quiet day that has been experienced
bore in a week. The lobbies of the hotels
have almost been deserted, and the familiar
faces of such pugilistic luminaries as Yen
dig, Stuart, Brady and Pelaney have been
noticeable by their absence. Since the de
cision of Chancellor Leatherman, however,
there appears to be a feeling of more as
surance engendered in the minds of the
people of the ability of the Florida Ath
letic Club to bring off the clove contest
here as billed. All doubt has been re
moved as to the existence of any statutory
provision prohibiting glove contests or
prize-fights by which there can be any legal
interference brought to bear to stop Cor
bett and Fitnimnions from coming into
the State with the determination to engage
in their contest.
The day of the right has not been fully
determined upon by the ofliciais of the
club. It is thought that either the Hth or
15th will be selected for the Corbett-Fit z
The probable action of Governor Clarke,
in view of the decision of the Chancellor,
iss the subject of much comment and sur
prise. His decluratiou at the beginning
that he would not call out the Legislature
if the men fought in the State House
yard is remembered, and the fear now is
that he will not abide by it, but will call
an extra session of the Legislature at once.
It is a recognized fact that the Governor
has no law to warrant him in calling upon
the militia without first being called upon
to do so by the civil authorities of Garland
County, and the opinion is freely ex
pressed here that the Sheriff meant "every
word in hi? letter to the Governor, written
yesterday, and which is supposed to have
reached him this morning.
An extra session of the Legislature is
now the Governor's only hope of making
good his word that there shall be no meet
ing of Corbett and Fitzsimmons anywhere
in Arkansas. If he should persist in send
ing the militia into this- county without
being called upon to do so the local peace
officers will see that they do not damage
either life or property.
Attorney-General Kinsworthy has been
here all day engaged in the work of getting
the appeal papers ready to take the case to
the Supreme Court to-morrow. The tran
scripts were completed this evening, and
the Attorney-General will leave for the
capital on the early morning train. In an
interview he stated that, as the Governor
was exceedingly anxious to have the legal
aspect of the" question decided, in all
probabilities the Supreme Court would re
view the papers at once, but he could not
say when a decision would be given. He
stated that he was perfectly satisfied with
the decision of Chancellor Leatherman ;
that the decision was not unexpected ; that
the Chancellor could not well give any
other opinion than he did under the proof
made. He also stated that, in the event
that the Supreme Court affirmed the de
cision of the lower court, that would end
all interference on the part of the Gov
ernor, so far as the law is concerned.
What other steps, if any, the Governor
contemplated taking, the Attorney-Gen
eral would not say.
The written demurrer to the petition of
Corbett was filed to-day. It is a mere de
nial of the fact that the petitioner has
stated sufficient facts to entitle him to a
writ of habeas corpus as prayed for.
A meeting of the Florida Athletic Club
will take place to-niorrow morning at 11
o'clock, when Martin Julian will be pres
ent and be heard aneut the proposed
postponement of the meeting and change
of rounds, the decision to be on scientific
points. The very best feelings do not
seem to exist between Julian and the offi
cers of the Florida Athletic Club at pres
ent. The latter claim that Julian had no
forfeit money up* on Fitzsimmons and that
if it does not put in an appearance he will
forfeit nothing but his time. Julian
claims that neither ne nor Fitzsimmons
have been treated just right in the affair;
that they have not been consulted as to
SiJy of the proposed changes, and that
they have been accused of having nothing
Bf> on the tight. He 6ays that Fitzsim-
Bions is in splendid condition and that
Owing to the difference in the weather be
tween here and Corpus Christi he
A&es not think it best to bring him here
Before the day of the fight.
"What do you think of the revised arti
cles of agreement?"
"I do not like them at all. We agreed
to right a finish battle to see who is en
titled to the championship, and the arti
cles provide for a soft-glove contest for a
limited number of rounds. I do not in
tend to sign the new articles of agreement
at all. It will be a fight to a finish or no
fight at all. I make this statement most
"What about postponing the- contest to
some Inter day?"
"I object to that also. We agreed to
fight on October 31. I will have Fitzsim
mons here on that day ready to go into
the ring and fight. If* the other parties
are not ready we will claim the forfeit, ac
cording to contract. Then, if they want
to make other arrangements, we will ac
commodate them, but this fight must be
brought oil according to agreement or not
"It is claimed by some that you have no
forfeit money up. How is that?"
"The money was placed in the hands of
the stakeholder all right. All of it but
$1800 has been attached. Just how the
staKeholder aliowed it to be done, I do not
know, but :li;it cuts no figure, as we have
another $10,000 to put up as a side bet
where it cannot be attached by anybody."
TO FIGHT IX MEXICO.
The Great Fistic Jiattle May Tahe Place
Ae«r I'nso Itrl Jt'orte.
A dispatch from El Paso, Tex., to The
Call statts that the Corbett and Fitzsim
mons proposed right, of which so much
has been said and written, will positively
take place in the first week of December at
Paso del Norte, on Mexican soil. Com
plete arrangements have been made with
the proper authorities for the "pulling off"
of this championship battle between ihe
giants of the ring, and in conjunction with
the great ristic jubilee a bull-fight, the like
of which has never yet been witnessed in
Mexico, will comprise one of the many
sporting events of the day and evening.
Horse-racing, broncho riding and other
pastimes dear to the hearts of the Mexi
cans will add to the excitementof the hour.
Fitzsimmona and Corbett and the smaller
fry are only too willing to fight upon any
ground where they will meet with no in
terference from the authorities.
LOS ANGELES RACES.
High- Class Horses Have Been Entered in
All the Events Of the Coming
LOS ANGELES, Cal., Oct. 20.— The city
is to-night full of horsemen from all parts
of the State, gathered to attend the annual
meeting of the Sixth District Fair Associa
tion which begins on Monday. The entries
are unusually numerous, and the best
horses from all over the State as well as
many from the East have been entered.
Some of the greatest performers of the
year will start. The purses are liberal and
encouraging to good racing. On account
of the meeting being held so late in the
season it will bring together the beat horses
on the coast.
In the two-year-old pace Monday are en
tered the greatest lot of two-year-old pacers
that ever faced a starter.
In the 12:17 trot, among others which will
contest are the great three-year-old Doctor
Puff and Jasper Ayers, together with Jas
per Faulsen,2:l6>.£; Hillsdale, 2:15; Myrtle
Thorne. 2:l6'^; Native State, George Dex
ter, Irene Crocker and Pasadena Belle.
The fourth event, the 2:25 trot, with ten
entries, has among its entries some of the
best product of the great breeding farms of
the State, representing thepreat Stamboul,
Guy Wilkes, Alrnont Medium, Albert
Weichard's Elector, Silver Bowl and San
With Rilkwood, Seymour Wilkes, W.
Wood, Diablo, and Directly, the world's
champiou two and three-year-old pacer,
and the great Waldo J. in the free-for-all
pace, it will certainly be a great event, as
the horses are the best in the State. Zoin
bro, possibly the greatest three-year-old of
this or any other year, is a contestant in
the 2:13 trot, having for bis competitors
Boodle, by Stranger; the great race mare,
Ethel Downs, winner of the hotly con
tested five-heat pace at Santa Ana last
week; Visalia, the fast and game four
year-old, and Nellie W. This should be
one of the great races of 1895, and it would
not be a surprise if the horse that wins
beat 2 :10.
In the three-year-old trot, 2:27 class, are
entered sonic of the great three-year-olds
of the year. The 2:13 class contains tho
the names of Chehalis, from the nortb,
and Waldo Jr., a representative of the
south. There are also in this race other
horses that have demonstrated their capac
ity to go fast: Fred Mason 2:10, Dudley
2:09?<, Ketchum 2:13^, Belle and Hanford
Medium, the last two being winners and
consistent performers through the circuit
There has also been introduced at this
meeting, to take place on Tuesday, a gen
tleman's road race, in which considerable
interest has been manifested as the horses
are owned in and about Los Angele3 and
will be driven by their owners.

scandal in turf circles.
In-and-Out Running of the
Santa Anita Horses Will Be
NEW YORK, N. V.. Oct. 20.— The Tri
bune will print to-morrow the following:
B. J. Baldwin, a unique and picturesque
figure on the American turf, has been
called upon by the foremost body on the
American turf to explain the notorious in
and out running of some of the horses in
his stable. E. J. Baldwin, who is known
all over the civilized world as "Lucky"
Baldwin, has been a prominent figure on
the turf for many years. Baldwin first
gained prominence on the turf through
the purchase of Norfolk, a son of Lexing
ton. He paid $13,001 for Norfolk, the extra
dollar being added to win a wager that a
son of Lexington would sell for more than
the (at that time) fabulous price ($15,000)
paid for Lexington himself.
From the beginning Baldwin always
raced a formidable stable. Many of the
best horses that have raced in recent years
were owned by the Californian. Through
out his career "Lucky" Baldwin has been
careless of public opinion. Criticisms by
the press or the comment of race-goers
never had appeared to affect him. Some
of his horses have raced constantly. Em
peror of Norfolk was a champion and ex
celled his opponents so much that he was
invincible until his owner raced him off
his legs. Yolante, Los Angeles, Silver
Cloud, Gano, Rey el Santa Anita, Key el
Carreres, Arapahoe and others were not
true running animals, consequently
"Lucky" Baldwin and his methods have
been the subject of censure for several
The Santa Anita stable has had many
managers and numerous trainers. Some
of the latter have been notoriously suspi
cious for several years. At the Memphis
spring meeting there was a serious turf
scandal in which the Santa Anita stable
was concerned. One of the jockeys for the
stable made an affidavit that he was in-
structed to win, although the blacksmith
for the stable swore that the jockey said to
him that he was instructed differently.
At the Latonia meeting the stable was
cut into two divisions. Samuel Hildreth
was engaged to train tlie Eastern division
and W. G. Brlen had charge of the West
ern division. When it was decided to
unite both divisions Brien journeyed to
Gravesend to take charge.
He was greatly chagrined, however, by
being ordered to get from under the shed
without delay and afterward being denied
admission to the track. This caused a
commotion for a time, but resulted in
Samuel Hildretn being retained as chief
Tne horses Rey el Santa Anita and
Arapahoe have caused so much comment
by their startling chances of form that the
stewards of the Westchester Racing Asso
ciation called a halt on Saturday and will
refuse the entries of the Santa Anita stable
until the stewards of the Jockey Club de
cide upon the merits of the case.
Baldwin is furious and threatens dire
vengeance on anybody who dares to say
that he ever profited a penny by taking
advantage of any fraudulent transaction
on the turf.
In the uptown hotels and cafes the Bald
win scandal is much talked about. Many
ask, "Why don't they call down Mr. So
and-So or Mr. Somebodyelse too?"
Baldwin will be given every opportunity
to vindicate himself. It is a long step
toward reform to strike at tne evil of in
and-out running, even if the victim is E. J.
Baldwin. J. O. Dormer has resigned as
steward of the Jockey Club, consequently
it is not likely that the Baldwin case will
be heard until his successor is elected.
W. B. Sink, manager for "Lucky"
Baldwin, was very indignant over the
treatment which the Santa Anita stable
had received at the hands of the West
chester Racing Association. When seen
to-night at the Colenian House he said :
"Mr. Baldwin is one of the most honor
able horsemen on the turf and his jockeys
are always instructed to win at every race
in which he hap an entry. He has done
more for racing than any other man and
his horses are a benefit to the turf. We
not only ask for but demand the fuLest
investigation of any race in which any of
our horses started and the result of which
may have seemed the least bit queer. We
will do all in our power to help along such
an investigation and will stand all its

The Veteran Marksman Registers
an Excellent Score on the
It was Philo Jacoby's day to shine at
Schuetzen Park yesterday. The California
Club held its monthly bullseye shooting
and the veteran marksman, who pioneered
the development of the target-hitting
science in the West, won the diamond
medal and all of the laudable distinction
which attaches to this prize. Jacoby has
devoted most of his time in late years to
the supervision of matches rather than to
an active participation in the shooting,
and his performance yesterday is notable
as indicating that he has lost "none of the
old-time prowess which made him famous
throughout the country.
His shot which gave him the medal was
only six-hundredths of an inch from the
dead center of the black bullseye. This is
in the class of rattling scores and Jacoby
will be rated a hero for some time.
The scores registered by the club mem
bers were as follows:
Jacoby 60, Burmeister 1604, Rahwyler 1220,

THEY ARE ORDERED OFF
Trespassers on the Suisun Pre
serves COMMANDED TO
A Young Man From Benicia Had
His Head Shot in Pieces
Constables from Suisun were located at
the Teal Shooting Club's headquarters
bright and early yesterday morning, where
they waited for the arrival of hunters who
I intended shooting upon the wire-fenced
grounds of the Cordelia Teal Shooting
As soon as the first report of a gun spread
over the marsb the constables, under the
guidance ol a keeper, started immediately
in the direction from which the sound
came, and whenever a loaeher, so called,
was detected squatting on the margin of a
pond or tramping through the mud fields
he was haiJed and presented with a type
written order to vacate the premises.
No arrests were made. Those who re
ceived the scrip looted at it first in dis
gust, and then either tore it into bits or
flung it to the breeze. One sample, how
ever, was pocketed, and it read as follows:
Chamberlain Tract, j
Solano County, Cal., Oot. 20, 1895. \
You are hereby notified that you are unlaw
fully upon this tend, which said'land iv known
as the Cnamberlain tract, in Solano County,
State of California, near Suisun. It is inclosed
and leased by me from the owners thereof.
You are notified to immediately remove from
this property, upon which you are trespassing,
and if you fail to 60 co you will be prosecuted
to the extent of the law.
Gko. H. Kim.och, Constable.
Ciias. W. Kei.logg, Lessee.
One of the keepers of the Teal preserve
said that the Cordelia Club leased for four
years 4000 acres of the Chamberlain tract
m July of 1803. and in the following year
the club fenced 3000 acres and had notices
posted in accordance with the law. It paid
$1200 a year for the privilege of shooting
over this large extent of marsh, and it was
a shame that outsiders did not respect the
rights of the members.
The long pending injunction suit against
the Mallard Club will be tried next Thurs
day in the Superior Court of Fairfield be
fore Judge Buckles. The Cordelias will
try to explain the great annoyance they
have been subjected to by the Mallard Club,
whose members, it is claimed, have caused
the wild ducks to vacate the well-fed ponds
of the preserves by their wiW and reckless
shooting during day and night; that unless
trespassers must be made to keep aloof
from the grounds, the club will suffer much
pain and a great financial loss.
The members of the Mallard Club laugh
at the idea of a club of comparatively few
sportsmen being in the least bit injured by
visitations from outsiders. They will cite
as an instance of great slaughter the
several bags of game that were shipped
from Teal Station and vicinity last Tues
day evening, the result of half a day's
shooting by lesß than one dozen club mem
bers. The Mallards contend that the Cor
delia Club, which has subleased portions
of its vast shooting grounds to the Teal
Club, has a lease only of the shooting
privileges of the marsh which is partly
surrounded by a "wire fence, and as a con
sequence the Cordelias have no right or
title to prevent outsiders from trespassing
on the nude flats.
The sportsmen of Solano County, and
especially the residents of Suisun and
vicinity, are very bitter against the pre
serve club members, and as a matter of
fact the trial of next Thursday is being
looked forward to with more than or

to have said that he had no power to arrest

mischief if they so pleased.
A very sad accident happened to a youfcg
man named Alexander Carr yesterday,
while hunting near Goodyears station.
While parting the tule with his gun so as
to make a trail the weapon was discharged,
blowing one side of his head off. The
young man was conveyed by his compan
ions to Peuicia, where his relatives reside.
He was in the company of his brother, L.
Joy, Shade and Pringle of Benicia when

in the Central Park
tied in the ninth inning.
Lohman's Hit "With the Bases
Full— Shooting, Bicycling
The way that high fouls and long
distance hits flew over the fence at Central
Park yesterday in every direction would
have caused timid residents of the
locality to move out or to get down in the
cyclone cellar. But the houses that hem
in the old baseball grounds are occupied
by a courageous class, and instead of seek
ing safety the men and women got up on
the roofs and watched the game.
And it was a game worth watching.
The crowd was about as big as that of
Saturday, though the rain that fell early
in the afternoon had the effect of keeping
everybody but the veterans away, and en
thusiasm ran as high as the new wire
fence, the City Hall tower that loomed
overhead, or the lurid, up-turned collar of
"Tip" O'Neill's blazer.
It was a day of long hits, and San Fran
cisco always did like heavy batting. There
would have been a nice little record of
home runs and three-base hits, but the
circumscribed area of the outfield made it
necessary to hold the over-the-fence work
down to the two-bagger limit. From the
beginning of the joint assault on tne two
pitchers until the last shriek from the fog
horn voice of Coach Mertes died awuy
over the Potrero hills it was a bright,
Los Angeles was four runs shy in the
ninth inning, but with three men on the
bases when Pete Lohman went to the bat.
Peter had just the same opportunity on
Saturday, but struck out, and yesterday he
seemed determined fo make a similar "rec
ord. He stood idly at the plate, just try
ing to forget himself, when Mr. McDonald
called a strike at the first ball pitched.
Then Peter revived like a uniformed Pat
Malone. He jumped in four different
directions, made a diagram in the air with
the handle of his bat and proceeded to
abuse the umpire. He was mad and b.e
didn't care if people were present.
The ball was pitched again and with a
vicious swing Peter caught it about two
feet to the windward of the plate and sent
it joyously cavorting to the most remote
corner of the fence. He brought three
men home and would have made third
himself but for the fact that he stopped to
tell the sympathetic young Hulen some
more about his opinion of umpires in
One run had been previously brought in,
tieing the score, but the wrathful Lohman
died at third.
The San Franciscqs batted heavily in the
tenth inning, making the score 13, and
though Los Angeles then made a run and
put three men on the bases the lead could
not be overcome.
The same teams will play at Central
Park on Wednesday afternoon. Jack Fan
ning will pitch for San Francisco and
either Barnes or Phil Knell for Los An
geles. The score of yesterday's game is:

TRIALS OF THE JUNTA
Indications That All Is not
Harmonious and Serene
A Member of the Committee
Tells of Mr. Daggett's
There is not among the members of the
Junta that harmony that would be ex
pected among such a body of men whose
sole aim is to give the City an opportunity
to choose for its office-holders a set of can
didates above reproach.
Mr. Maguire is with the Junta; so is Mr.
Daggett; so is Mr. Rainey; so is Max Pop
per. The men who have had the chosing
of the members of the committee of fifty
have not given each and all of these what
they asked. Maguire will be satisfied if
Mr. Daggett does not get much influence.
Mr. Popper will be statisfied with what he
gets, provided Mr. Daggett does not have
too much say. Mr. Daggett— well, Mr.
Daggett's Senatorial ax is very dull, and
he want 3 a great deal of wear out of
the Junta's grindstone; more than they
can allow him. So it looks as if one of the
dearest wishes of Mr. Maguire and Mr
Popper will be realized.
One who is prominent in the committee
of fifty and one of the original twenty-five
said last night: "Rainey we have no use
for. It is no good trying to whitewash
him and claim that he and Buckley are at
outs. Of course, so far, we have not
antagonized him openly for policy's sake
The committee is getting a little tired of
Mr. Daggett, too. Here he comes into a
San Francisco local right from Biskiyou
with his Senatorial aspirations. What
does he care about our putting up a good
local ticket as far as his interest in this
City goes? ?vo, he wants to grind his old
Senatorial ax, and that is so dull by this
time that it would use up our whole grind
Btone. 6 ii "J
t . ? f course he has got in a man here and
there and his Mr. Armes has been doing
some cunning work, but we are on to then!
now and Mr. Armes brings up only
smiles when he offers his mild insinuating
suggestions. You see the trouble is that
Daggett, besides asking too much ex.
presses altogether more confidence in Mr.
Kainey than we think Mr. Rainey de
serves. It don't look well. We are work
ing in the interest of the local Democracy
with a view to putting up a good ticket
and not to help out anybody's aspirations
nor rehabilitate any discarded bosses."
CRICKET ACROSS THE BAY.
The Lake County Eleven Defeated
by the Pacifies at Ala
The first match of the Lake County
cricket eleven against local clubs came off
yesterday. It was with the Pacific Club at
Alameda, and resulted in a victory for the
home team by 7 wickets.
The Pacifies won the toss and put the
visitora in. Kelson and Hammond made
a strong defense, but the others of their ,
team were evidently the worse for their
journ?y on the previous day and.fell com
paratively easy victims to the bowling of
Casidy and Charley Hill. They reached a
total of 52.
The first few wickets of the Pacifies fell
for so small a total that the northerners
were led to hope for the best, but Harbour
and Casidy extinguished their hopes by
steady scoring, and the total of the visitors
was overtopped by thirty runs.
Then the rain came down and it was
feared that the match would terminate,
but at the first indication of clearing up a
fresh start was made and the Lake County
men went to bat. Keeling made 31 with
careful play, but was poorly supported, and
the side was finally dismissed for 64. The
few runs that remained for the Pacifies to
tie and win were promptly compiled, thanks
chiefly to the efforts of "Myers. The chief
feature of the game was the superb bowi
ng of Harbour of the Pacifies, who got 4
wicketsf or no runs, making the hat trick
The Lake County men were |entertained
at luncheon by their opponents, and pleas
ant speeches were interchanged. General
Warfield gave a warm address of welcome
on behalf of the home team. The scores:

I-ATEST WHEEL VERSES.
"As Providence willed,
By her bicycle killed."
'Twas thus her epitaph ran:
"In bloomers aud cap
Though Rad the mishap,
She went to her death like a man.*
There is a wheel in the affairs of men.
Which, if ridden properly, leads on to health:
Omitted, all the voyage of their life
Is bound in indigestion and in miseries.
A cycler, his bearings to clean,
Squirted through them some gasoline;
And this simple trick
Made his wheel run so slick
That since then he hasn't benzine!
If you want to mix some sugar
In the sweetness of your life,
Just procure the lirhtest tandem for the day,
Then invite to do the steering
Your young sweetheart or y'oA wifp,
And go out and navigate the right^f way.
Farewell, alont; farewell, to all my hopes'
This is the state of man: To-day 'he «oe» forth
Upon a gas-pipe wheel; to-morrow scorches
And elades the nimble cop thick upon him-
The third day comes a chuck hole—
And then where is that gas-pipe wheel?
An Occupation That Everybody
Should Be Engaged In All
Few people realize how much we can do
In warding off that grim monster, death.
Our days are not "numbered"— we cannot
determine the number ourselves, but we
can add or subtract from it.
We are continually though uncon-
sciously doing things that shorten our life
by hours — days— years.
We work too long, too hard ; we eat food
onsuited t« us, to« much or not enough •
we overstrain certain muscles, limbs
senses «r faculties, while others remain
unusei or undeveloped; we expose our-
selves to excessive heat or cold, to impure
air; we squander our vitality.
True, wuh most people these things are
Hie necessary consequences of the struggle
for existence. It is to the millions wno
cannot continually think of their health
that this is addressed. It is to them that
Peruvian Bitters is recommended.
\\ ith them Peruvian Bitters is to the
body what oil is to machinery; it keens
the entire system so toned that it worka
w . lth i th .« i<J a 8 t possible friction and waste
of vitality, with greatest power of resist-
ance to the germs of disease. Peruvian
Bitters is an infallible tonic, which, when
vitality has been reduoed by poor digps-
tion, overwork, sickness, trouble, puts the
various functions in such normal condi-
tion that nature, unhampered, soon re-
stores wasted tissues, vigor and energy.
