NO MORE GLOYE CONTESTS. B0X1NC1 MVTCIIES IV AEW ORLEUS A TIIIMi OP Tim PAST. Death of One of the Participants In the Opening- 3Intrh In the New Arena PuIk n. Quietu on the Sport in That CIt. New Orleans. Oct. 19 The outcome of the first boxinff match at the new arena on Tulare avenue, the unfortunate death of one of the participants, has put a qui etus on "boxing matches" in this city or state. Both the mayor and the president of the club received notice from A. P. Simmons. Attorney General Cunningham's chief clerk and representative, that the state would not permit the " boxlnc contests" booked for last nisht. Mr. Simmons received word from the club that Jegal measures would not be necessary to prevent the content, as it would not take place. The postponement is caused by Jack Evcrhardt's illness with malarial fever. Evcrhardt savs he will be ready in a few duvs. but the club will not permit him to light. Kid McPartland wanted to claim the forfeit, but finally consented to await another opportunity and telecrams have been sent to Mitt hews, Jack Daly, Zclgler and other pugi lists, with a view- to getting one of them here by Monday night. In the meantime, McPartland will go to Covington. Ky.. across the lake, which is wide open to ref ugees, and has no fear of fever. RACES AT MORRIS PARK.

New York, Oct. 19 The last meeting that will ever be held at Fleetwood was held this afternoon with fair weather, a good track and a speculative crowd. The bay gelding. King Chimes, started off to win the 2.14 class in short order and landed the first heat with ease, but in the second he had a desperate finish with Pastoral, who was only a nose behind him. In the next two heats Glenmore Boy won by a length with Pastoral a fighting factor all the way around, and the latter won the heat in a grand drive down the stretch. In the 2.1G pace Highland Lassie won the first heat by a head and the second by a length, but making a bad break in the third the heat was won handily by O. M. C.

Not many weeks have passed since tho enterprise was originated by a young man of some political prominence and business ability.

In Response to Application for Reim bursement He Received Postal Card AdvlNlnsr Illiu IIIn Claim Anmber Is 100,009. An assistant general freight agent of a K.insas City railroad lias received the fol lowing interesting letter from II. S. Tergu son, of JInrked Tree, Ark, written on the letter head of the branch factory there of a Kansas City lumber nnd box companj : "Dear Sir- In response to mj application for indemnity for damage while in transit to one folding bed, I received, some time since, a postal from jou giving me the In tel esting information that my claim num ber Is 100009, and suggesting that if neces sary to communicate with ou further I refer to this number. As it undoubtedly appears verv necessary to write vou again regarding this matter. I now comply with jour kind request to jog jour memorv b mention of the talismanic number. 100903. "I was very glad to get this postal; it Is a nice postal, and, if not patented, I think I will have some printed mvself for the beiictlt of my creditors. This thing of re sptnding to a dun by giving a reference number In lieu of the cash never struck mo before, but, if a success, it ought to prove a factor and a valuable object lesson in the economies of living expenses. However, as I am not especially desirous ot practicing the theory upon mjself. I would be greatly pleased to hear something a little more definite regarding claim No 100909. "It it had been an Illegitimate pig, met amorphosed bj- accident and sudden deaih into a pedigreed Poland China porker, or a bang-tailed mule, descended (on the prin ciple of 'De mortuls nil nisi bonum") from the dear departed Dexter or the late la- n en ted Longfellow, this matter wou'd doubtless have met with prompt adjust ment, but being only bed; just plain, wood bed (barring the fragments) I feir the claim I am so courteouslj- Invited to refer to again 'if necessary" has been filed aw ay with other archives of a like nature, where moth and rust maj- corrupt but thieves do not break through and steal, for even a burglar's time Is too valuable to be thus wasted. "If. however. No 100909 will prove an 'open sesame' to the dustv doors of the rusty recess wherein this claim is depTjIl ed, I adjure j ou let the light of daj- once more fall upon It before mould and moth destroy and let me know whether it K collectible in tho near future, or whether I "hall bequeath It. hoary with venerable nntiqultj-, as a relict of the long past nine teenth centurj-, to mv posterity and, for mvself, trust to meeting it again only on the shores bevond."

During the three dajs of the convention the following sub jects will come up for discussion. Inter changeable ticket of the Central Passenger Association; necessity- for uniform . ifttj paper for coupon tickets; excursion business in all Its details, some rules to prevent the fraudulent use of tickets; uniformity of slate laws relative to the handling of pas sengers and baggage and rates therefor; uniformltv- in the rules of railroad com panies in handling passenger business and baggage; benefits derived from pasenger traffic associations; entire abolition of skeleton tickets. MAY MEET T0AGREE AGAIN. Despite Recent Coinpnct of Executive Officers, PnsseiiKcr Situation Is Demoralized. Chicago, Oct. 19 The situation in West ern passenger rates shows no signs of im mediate Improvement, and the chances are that Chairman Caldwell, of the Western Passenger Association, will find it nec-cssarj- in the near future to call a meet ing of all of the interested lines for the purpose of seeing that the agreement re centlj entered into by all of the Western roads for the maintenance of rates and the nor.-pajment or commissions is kept. Practically evcrj road that agreed to stop the pajment of excessive commissions is row pajing them just the same as at the time the agreement was made. The set tlement of the troubles between the Oregon Short Line and the Union Pacific has not stopped the payment of tho large com missions on North Pacific coast business, nor is there nny possibility that they will bo discontinued in the near future.

There Is an old saylpg that "the more jou kick a dog tho more,he will love jou," but there are exceptions to every rule. Some j ears ago I was stationed at Dev onport. A friend of mine (whom I will call. Bates) owned a hnndome retriever dog. The animal received more kicks than caresses from his master, and I was con tinually remonstrating with my friend on his cruelty to the dog; but his only answer to mj- entreaties to be kind to the animal was the usual one, "the more jou kick him the more he will love you." I was verj- kind to the dog, and my kind ness was well rewarded, as the sequal will show. Ono afternoon Bates and I engaged a boat for a row. Bates tried all he knew bow to prevent his dog from getting into the boat, but I eventuallj- prevailed upon him to let the dog accompany us. On the return journey a fog came on and a passing steamer swamped us, with the result that our boat was upset, and we were struggling In the water. We could not swim, and the steamer's crew could not see us, although thej could hear our cries for help. As I was sinking the dog grabbed me and pulled me to the upturned boat; but I could not get him to save his master, who was drowned. Rare Lace "With a lllstor). From the New Orleans Times-Democrat. There Is a bit of interesting history con nected with the lace that Stuart wears about the neck of the handsome black Ilk dress that he affects in the third act of the delightful "1492," now on the boards of the St. unaries tneater. it was during a tour of the celebrated Impersonator to Mexico, a jear or so ago, that the wife of President Diaz witnessed his performance and was so charmed because of his re markably clever portraj-al of a feminine character that she sent him several jards of magnificent lace that was of inestim able value, being over 400 jears of age. Stuart values the heirloom accordlnglj', and It ornaments the costume mentiomd II was during the same tour that he was made honorarj- member of the Order of Mrximllian bj- the son of President Diaz. 4VX"KKKKKXKKKK-XKK jH i m s-. IP The Love is the sun of woman's life. Its dawning is the maiden's tender sentiment; it bright ens into the steady affection of the con tented wife, and reaches its glorious noontide in the happy mother. Happy motherhood is a true wo man's loftiest ambition Her highest pride is in her fitness to fulfill this grand and sacred destiny. Nothing so clouds and darkens her existence as to be incapaci tated for this noblest of womanly functions by weakness or disease. A woman who suffers from any ailment of the delicate special organism of her sex, feels something more than pain and phj si cal wretchedness. She is mortified with a sense of womanly incompleteness. But no woman need remain under this cloud of misery and dissatisfaction. Dr. Pierce's Favorite Prescription positively cures all diseased conditions and weak nesses, and restores complete health and strength to the feminine organs. It is the only medicine of its kind devised for this one purpose by an educated and ex perienced physician, and eminent specialist in this particular field of practice.

A California church was built from the timbers of a single tree. The building is in Santa Rosa,-and was erected for the members of the Baptist communion in that plate. Tho timber was taken from a red wood tree that grew in the neighborhood. The interior of the church was paneled and finished with wood, not a particle of plas ter or other similar material being used. The floors, seatings. pulpit, roof and roofing were all formed from material taken from the same three, and after the building was flnlshetl in everj- particular stuff enough was taken from it to manufacture C0.000 shingles, besides a large quantity of scant ling, joists antl other dimension stuffs. i The following storj- comes from AVnter i loo, la.: The members of the Presbj terian church decided to erect a new place of worship. Stone was --carce. In fact, there were no quarries and no rock suitable for 1 building purposes nigh at hand. At last their attention was called to what was ap- parentij a i irgt- iioumer. wnicn stood in the middle of the plain about eight miles from the town. The huge mass of rock was like an island in the midst of a vast About eight feet of it projected above annual report of the institute's affairs by Superintendent B. H. Shawhan, its founder.

The pieces Vcre convened to the town, and before long a wonderful meta morphosis was apparent, and then this gi Hit boulder, after resting undisturbed fo, countless jears and buried bv the deposits of ages, was transformed Into a beautiful church. In Its rough state this great rock is estimated to have weighed more than 2 X0 tons. cd to the equipment, with four tubs and ten showers ot the latest pattern, a 100 gal lon boiler and modern heater. Three large fumlgators have been placed In the building for the ue ot exceptlonallj- filthj- incom ers. The work of improvement has not jet been completed. Carpenters were at work jestcrdaj, and will not finish the contcm platetl improvements for several dajs. The bathroom, the women's quarters and the men's bunks are located on the sec ond floor of tho building. New- iron bed steads have been placed on this floor, vftth new blankets, sheets and pillows and night clothes for lodgers. On the third floor sev eral rooms will lie fitted up for the use of what Rev. Shawhnn cal's "the luckless fel lows with a good front."
