Address, ftt Centnrj Coll Coipuy, Wilkes Barre, Pa Box 87 HISTORY. Popular belief associates the King's Evil" with blood poi soning and it is interesting to here review the history of this impression. The King's Evil first appears in History just prioi to the Twelfth Century when Edward the Conqueror imagined it wt e j he possessed the miraculous gift of curing certain diseases by the ! simple touch and by pronouncing 1 a few sacred words. After the example of Edward, the King of ; France, became celebrated for ; the skill with which they cured scrofula, goitre, etc., by his pro cess. Scrofula then became unil versally known as the King' Evil and is to-dav sometimes as Such a luded to by that name, method of cure has been claimed to be the peculiar attribute of the sovereigns of England and France, but history does not san tion this, for it appears to have been not unfrequently employed in Scandanavia, and to have been derived from the mystical prac tices of the Divide in curing dis ease. The exact words used for the cure of Scrofula by the French Kings were:—"Le roi te touche, Dieu te guerisse." In this enlightened age no body would be silly enough trust a case of Scrofula to a Kin or his words unless it that the King aforesaid,'had a diploma jot two from medical lieges of good repute, writing none of the Kings in our circle of acquaintance have taken up the study ot medicine and we therefore suggest that every man, woman and child suffering from this dreadful disease send fifty cents to Dr. Jonathan G. Tru man, Lemon City, Fla., for a bottle of "Marvelo." There is but one cure for the King's Evil —for Scrofula—and that one cure is Marvelo. This marvel ous prepaiation can only be ob tained of Dr. Jonathan G.

AMONGST THE ATHLETES ■ploy Items Taken From the Latest Happenings in the Roped Arena and on the Field of Atb letlcs-Wilmlngton's In teresting Budget. DIAMOND DUST. The question as to who invented the first catcher's mask is again going rounds. Captain Tyng, of Harvard, leads in the guessing contest. Bntfolonians resent the idea that Bam Wise is a back number. He played more game* at second base this year than any other Eastern Leaguer. Harry Berthrong, who in his day was the fastest base runner in the buemess, ii now United 8tatee Collector of Cus toms at Manzanillo, Cuba. Washington fans have been for ever a week digesting a beautiful tale that J. D. Lesley, a bicycle man, has a 30 days' op tion on the Senators' franchise and dob. >. Mr. Freedman says there are no ne gotiations on for the purchase by the New Yerk Club of the Baltimore team. Hto is satisfied that he has the nucleus for a good team. Woods, of Chicago, who was touted as a batting and fielding wonder in the spring, batted at .162 on the season. Only his good pitching kept him in the big League. The veteraD, Sam Thompson, bas asked the Philadelphia Club for release from reservation, as he claims to have an offer to manage a Western League team next reason. The U. of P. faculty committee has re fused permission for the base ball team to play with professional nines. The captain and the manager of the 'varsity nine were desirous of arranging games with the league teame in order to give the 'varsity men the beet practice at the opening of the season. The Cincinnati scribes have finally come to the conclusion that the Cincin nati infield needs strengthening, in bat ting at least. A1 Lawson at this late day claims that he is the manager who first discovered and stood sponsor for the now famous McGraw. McGraw is said to have won $500 on Joe Gans, the colored Baltimore pugilist with the German name, who bested Mc Partland. "Bug" Holliday will likely put in the entire winter as cashier fora well-known bookmaker at the 100 days' New Orleans race meet ng. Pitcher Pardee, of Kansas City, is an expert pool player, and has been en gaged as manager of a billiard hall in Kansas City. Tlie Boston Club lias about decided to have the Beaneaters do their preliminary training at Durham, N. C., the teat of Trinity College. The lifting of that labor boycott against the Cleveland Club is the* first great step toward the restoration of base ball prosperity in the Forest City. Hollingsworth, the Jittie utility man of the St. Joe team, is now plaving quarter back on the Enswortli Medical College eleven at St. Joseph. Alex Smith was the only League out fielder who didn't make at least one as sist. The pride ot Broadway played in 20 games in Brookly's garden. Thomas K. Burns, who, as the new manager of the Chicago base ball team this year, made money for the club's stockholders for the first time in several seasons, has just been elected vice-presi dent of the Springfield Club, in which lie still retains an interest. While in New York Wednesday he said that the profits of the Chicago Club this year reached nearly $50,000.

John Rogers, of the Philadelphia Club, advocates two leagues of eight clubs each, the winners to play off for the championship of the two associations. of of SELF DEFENCE. Midget Glynn called at this office and tied that if Jack Phillip had $50 to bet he would be very willing to take him on. Now Phillip if you mean business speak up. Jim Corbett and Tom Sharkey, who are to meet in a twenty-round bout at tbe Lenox Athletic Club on next Tues day night for the largest parse ever fought for by two fighters in this part of the country—which is $20,000—are both in better shape for this important battle than for any fight that they have taken part in. Kid McCoy says Corbett will beat Sharkey, but that the fight will go the limit. George Dixon, the colored wonder, who secured the decision over Dave Sullivan last Friday night, won over $3,000. Limplier defeated Maxey 1 laugh at the Lock City A. C., Lockport, N. Y., on Tuesday niglit. Jack O'Brien and Jack Hamilton, both oPNew York State, fought at the Manhattan A. C., Troy, O'Brien getting the decision after twenty-five rounds. Spider Kelly and Fred Muller fought a twenty-round draw at Woodward's Pavilion, San Francisco, on Tuesday Dight. Jack Downey, of Brooklyn, and Jack Waldron, of Trenton, will appear in the wind-up at the Pelican A. C., Brooklyn, on Saturday night. Walter Johnson and Charley Steven son, two colored heavyweights, will ap pear at the Arena next Friday in the wind-up. Stevenson put Johnson to sleep on Monday in three rounds. Ellwood McCloskey and Danny Me-1 Mahon, the two local featherweights, will appear at the Nonpareil A. C., Phil adelphla, on Saturday night in the wind-1 on Frank up. If either man does not fight fair he forfeits his share of the receipts. Joe Choynski and Gus Kuhlin hare been practically matched to light twenty rounds at the Lenox Club about Decem ber 26. Philadelphians will remembor the fast bout these men put up at the Arena a couple of weeks ago, and a good fight is looked for in New York. Mysterious Billy Smith and Tommy West, who fought a twenty-round draw at the Horizon A. C., of Bridgeport, on Monday night, have received no money as yet from the club officials for fighting, ana are not liable to get any either. Training « Dixon, who is with Oscar Ga is the more systematic of the two. He doesn't (mat his work with as much vigor as Tom does, but be is more per sistent and never stop* to talk to any one. with Bharkey is George for his fight e little negro preparing rainer. Tn of a at CYCLING. Nat Butler's tale of "Whoa" at Point Brceie Wednesday night will scarcely tend to elevate the standard of cycle racing in the eyes of the horsemen or in deed anyone else. "It looks as if the question of long cranks would attract considerably more attention next year," says a man in the cycle trade, "than for some time past." Major Taylor, the wonderful colored cyclist, broke his own world's record of 1.32 for a mile here Wednesday by going the distance in 1.31 4-6. The pacing was poor and he rode 100 yards with no help at all. Of the many entries for the six-day cycle race at the Garden next month thirty-one men have signed articles. It is not likely, however, that the manage ment will permit over ^twenty-five to start. "The most popular form of mechanical pacing in the future," saya an English cyclist," will in all probability be the petroleum-driven motors, as petroleum can be purchased at almost any place, while the eleetric machines can only be charged in important towns and cities. From England comes the report that next year will find motor pacing in uee on the famous Crystal Palace track, which holds all the desirable English times, and has obtained distinction by being the belt of cement on which Cordang accomplished his marvelous twenty-iour-h >ur ride of 616 miles 340 yards. It is now about time for Mr. Potier, of New York, to flood the country with bulletins from the executive office of the League of American Wheelmen to show that there is such a thing as a president of that organization. On the evening of December 3, the Saturday before the six-day race, the first outlaw indoor meet of consequence will be given in New York. Edouard Taylore, the French lad, and Harry Elkes, the young record holder, will ap pear in an hour's paced race behind multicycles. Major Taylor, through his manager, Ward, has issued a challenge to Eddie McDuffee, the middle-distance champion and former holder of the world's one mile record, in which lie states he is willing to wager any part of $1,000 that he can defeat McDuffee in a aeries of one mile races, best two in three heats, with a flying or standing start. FOOT BALL. The Friends School foot ball team went to Newark yesterday and played the High School eleven of that place. At the end of the game the score stood 0 to 0. The Delaware College eleven will play a practice game with the Aetna club, of Newark. All lovers of foot ball should take in the game on Saturday between the War ren and Eddvstone. This is the deciding contest and the game will be a hard fought affair. Even money already is being wagered on tiie Hamird-Yale foot ball game, which, in . point of general interest, promises to overshadow all other foot ball games this year. Coach Woodruff again got in tiie game Wednesday by way of giving a practical illustration of how the game should be played. Cornell will play a defensive game against the Quakers Thanksgiving Day at Franklin Field. The coaches are drill ing the Ithacans with tills plan in view. It now appears to be the plan of the Yale coaches to place Ely and Eddy in the back field to handle Harvard's kick ing game on Saturday, and judging from the work they have done this week they should do well. he a of ' Tickets for the Yale-Harvard game were placed on sale Wednesday at New Haven, Conn., and were all sold inside of fifteen minutes. They were sold in twos and threes, and the speculators did not get hold of many, although they offered the students $3 for $2 seats. After the poor showing of Tuesday, the work of the Cornell 'Varsity at Itacha, N. Y„ Wednesday, was encouraging, as the entire practice was snappy and fierce. The foot ball season of Wesleyan Uni versity was cut short vestarday and the team disbanded, owing to the failure of tbe team to secure games with other col leges. The men will go out of training immediately. An offer to bet $4,000 on Yale at odds of 8 to 10 found no takers yesterday in New York, and even money is now the ruling price. The biggest bet made yes terday was $500 even, H. N. Iiaruch of the Stock Exchange, taking the Harvard end. ter A Yale graduate, in talking over the proposed Yale-Princeton-Harvard league, yesterday, said: "You can never tell any len Yale's coaches gave the team twenty minutes' practice Wednesday with a greased ball, to try and overcome the fumbling. The players did not show much improvement, however. McBride was kicked on the leg and retired, Chamberlin taking his place at fullback. Harvard took her last hard practice Wednesday, scoring seven touchdowns on the scrub in thirty minutes. The team left Cambridge, Mass., at 9 o'clock yes terday morning for Meriden, Conn., where it will remuin until Saturday tion to of a 56 day. morning. Burnett or Jaffray? 1 hat is tiie ques tion which puzzleB tiie Harvard coaches just now. Jaffray is far steadier than his rival, while Burnett excels in kicking. Prior to the Pennsylvania game Jaffray waB sure of the place, but Burnett's field goal turned the scales in his favor. A compromise by which each will play a half is tbe probable outcome. thing about Harvard'* policy. They are thoroughly independent np at Cam bridge* and are just as liable to sign a ten-years' contract with the University of Pennsylvania to-morrow as they are to make a similar agreement with Prince ton. Ciowdis, Princeton's big guard, was a visitor at Franklin field Wednesday, and carried a pair of pretty black eyes as a memento of the Yale game. He was in troduced to each member of the Penn sylvania team, and received a warm in vitation to dine at the training bouse, but bad to refuse on account of another engagement. He afterward expressed pleasure at his treatment, and regretted t'.at he had not bad a chance to play against the Quakers. AQUATICS. The Emerald's racing days are over, Mr. Iselin having decided that her rig shall be cut down during the coming winter. It is understood that the work on (tie challenger for the America's Cup, the Shamrock, will not be etarted until the end of January. The Faculty Athletic Committee of the University of Pennsylvania has ratified the appointment of Ellis Ward as coach of the University crew of 1899. The Duke of York is coming to Amer ica to see the yacht raca between the Shamrock that is to be and the new De fender, now on the ways at Bristol. So say the quidnuncs, and they ought to know. AMONG THE HORSEMEN Jockey Maher has beqn suspended for a week, for fouling in a race Wednesday at Bennings, D. C. Jockey Sherland was thrown from Bed Monk at Nashville, Tenn., Wednes day. and so badly tramped upon that he died. Presideut Engeroan, of the Brighton Beach Racing Association, denies that a secretary has been appointed. The As sociation has not considered the many applications. MISCELLANY. Chester G-iswold has resigned as cap tain of the Princeton team. J. Stuart bas been elected to take bis place. Tbe annual meeting of the Amateur Athletic Union will be held in New York on November 31. The University of Pennsylvania gvm nastic team will begin practice in about ten days. The calf for candidates will be issued by Captain J. S. Williams in a few days. A meeting of the Graduate Advisory Committee of tiie Intercollegiate Athletic Association was held Wednesday night in New York, to consider the advisabil ity of forming a separate bicycle league. The candidates for the 1900 College foot ball team, University of Pennsylva nia, have begun practice, There was a meeting at Harvard yes terday afternoon of all the candidates for the intercollegiate and junior fencing teams. Professor Louis Rondelle will have charge of the training of the teams. Fifty athletes participated Wednesday in the first of a series of nine cross country runs to be held at Princeton. N, J. The start was made at Brokaw Field, nine scratch men b< ing entered and the distance being four miles, Campbell, 1902 ( 2m.), won, with Batbelder, 1902 (scratch), second. Hali Adali, the Terrible Turk (No. 2), who is matched to wrestle Rudolph Wolff, the champion of Australia, at the Quaker City Athletic Club, Philadelphia, on Monday night, is in excellent con dition. The Turk is open to wrestle any man in the world, catch-as-catch-can or Graeco-Roman, for $1,000 a side Hali Adali is a native of Adrianople, Turkey, and defeated the late Yousouf five years ago at the Sultan's palace. DALY IN NEW YORK. The Wilmington Lad Will Leave on Tuesday for Cleveland Where He Will Fight Joe Gans. Jack Daly is in New York City where he will stay to see the Co rbelt-Sharkey fight. As soon as the contest is over lie will goto Cleveland where he will get him self in shape for his go with Joe Gans in that, city on December 12. This tight with the colored lad will be a hard one, and if Daly wants to come out on top he will have to be in the best of condition. ' Foot Ball To-day. The High School eleven will go Chester this afternoon to play ti.e Cb ter High School team. to es have been practicing hard expect to whipe out the defeat they received early in the season. The team* will leave the B. A O. station at 2.30 and a large crowd of rooters will be aboard. and Municipal Court Oases. Rebecca Wilson, colored, appeared in the Msnicipal Court yesterday against George E. Buckner, also colored. Rebecca accused George of assaulting her with his fists and exhibited a swol len lip as a proof. When George was examined it was found that ho was pretty badly used np by the encounter with the woman, and the court releaeed him after he had paid the costs. Joseph Welch was fined $50 for acting disorderly. Frank Simms, charged with disorderly conduct, was discharged. Sidney Larri more, a soldier, John J.
