Saturday, February 8, 1913 25 AN UNFAIR ADVANTAGE Tales Told At the Ringside By W. A. Phelon KEEP tooted in the minds of pugilists, wrestlers and athletes in general s a firm belief that it is a penal offence, of magnitude little short or mur der to strike any man who happens to he wearing glasses. Few, if any, of the criminal codes make any distinction between the spectacled and the glassless person the penalty for a good healthy wallop is the same, unless, of coarse, a splinter of broken glass should cause serious injury. Still, the fighters everywhere have this belief deep rooted in their existing understandings, and, perchance, 'tis just as well they should. Many years ago, Sam Pooler, a manager of boxers who was clever and crafty, was skipper of Tim Murphy's boxing ship, the said Tim Murphy being an Austra lian middleweight, brother of Billy Murphy, the famed Torpedo. Tim came to this country hailed as the best middleweight since Bob Fitzsimmons's time, but, some how or other, didn't quite come through, losing several decisions after lively battles. Naturally, the financial part of the Murphy transactions peeved and -worried manager Pooler, and he made caustic strictures on the ability, science and general standing of his protege. Hearing of these remarks, Mr. Murphy set forth, fire blazing in his ogles, to smite and wallop Mr. Pooler. The news of his ferocious intentions preceded him; Pooler, who was a small man of middle age and not fit physical match for the warrior, chased himself to an optician, and when Murphy reached the gymnasium where the scrappers foregathered he found his manager with a huge pair of lenses straddling his Soman nose. "Bh'me," roared the Australian, "Hi come 'ere to bloody well beat the blooming 'ead hoff you. Tyke hoff them glawsses, hand Hill bash you proper." Mr. Pooler solemnly turned his spectacled gaze on the furious fighter, and gave him the ironic giggle. Mr. Murphy, frantic, raging, yet duly, mindful of the law, al most choked with wrath, but held back his eager hand. "By crikey," suddenly burst out Mr. Murphy, "the bleeding law won't let me 'it you bin the fyce, but the law 'as nothink to sye hif Hi 'it you with me foot his the coat-tyles!" And, with foot poised for a swift kick, Murphy maneuvered to gain a rear van tage ground. Mr. Pooler calmly drew from his pocket a second pair of glasses, as calmly set them on the back of his bean, lenses toward the foe, bows over his ears, and continued chatting with some friend. Mr. Murphy gazed helplessly at tne back of Pooler's head, with the unseeing glasses staring at him. He moved round again, and looked at Pooler's steel-bine eyes, decorated with goggles. Then his manly figure shook with hoarse sobs, the sobs of a strong man deprived of just revenge. "Blawst you, hannywyes," wailed Mr. Murphy, "fo a sneaking, treacherous 'ound! Hi can jolly well lick you, man to man, hand you bloody well deserve a bashing but you've tyken an unfair hadvantage hof me so wot can Hi do?"

Under the present act, deer may be killed during only the months of No vember and December. The number in a season is restritced to three, and they must be bucks. The law which W. G.

October and November, and that does as well as bucks may be killed, bat the limit of any one man three in one season.

Dr. MSam has been here only three months bat no doobt has cured more people, and established a reputation on a broader basis by advertising than any man who ever came to this city. He has the ability to cure people and the courage to back hi de cisions with a contract that k worth ks face value at any bank in thk city. HAVE YOU EVER SEEN ANY PROPOSITION THAT APPEALS TO A MAN'S HONOR that h superior to Dr. Milam's? Do" you think he could afford such if be was not able finaadaBy as well as have the ability to do what he says he will do for j'ou? NO MAN, WHATEVER BE HIS CALLING, EVER CAME HERE WITH A BETTER REPUTATION AS SHOWN BY THE BUSINESS AND PROFESSIONAL REFERENCES than did Dr. Milam, and his office k being filled every day with the best people of thk cky seeking hk cures. Will you still adhere to old and obsolete methods, or w31 you wake up and realize that every day new and kaproTed methods are being discovered and used in. the cure of diseases and are being adopted by all the live and wide-awake doctorwhose am bition k to excel and win success upon the results of their practice? The means and modes gf practice of the modem, up-to-date specialists are as superior to themethods of the common old fogy practitioners as sleeping cars, electric lights and the telegraph are to the old-time stage coach, the tallow candle and the horse-cart mail. The Microscope, the Violet ray, new chemicals, Hot Air, Electricity and Medicated Nebulization are not mere speculations of the future, but are the things of every-day utility now and are daily performing such wonders kt the cure of diseases as to make men stand and wonder at their marvelous results, which racked seem almost miraculous. Rheumatism k often cured by hot air in a day. Cancers are made to disappear before the x-ray like frost before the sun. Stricture gives way to painless electricity and melts and dissolves like wax. Hernia k cured without loss of a dop of blood or a day's detention from business. Varicocele, Hemorrhoids and all manner of venereal diseases are made light matters of concern in the certainty of a cure by improved modern methods of practice, whilst women; those from whose cheeks the roses have faded, from whose eyes the luster has departed, whose nerves are shattered, and who, from derangements of functions peculiar to their sex, are made to appear prematurely old, and who are unfitted for the duties and pleasures of life, are now restored hi health, strength and beauty by common sense, rational treatment with proper medi cation and the wonderful life-invigorating powers of electricity; thus regaining their charms and prolonging life without having to give up their place at home or subject themselves TO THE MUTILATION OF THE SURGEON'S KNIFE OR THE TORTURE OF ESCHAROTICS. Men, too. both old and young, whose blood has been made corrupt, and who suffer from the effects of tobacco, strong drink, excessive mental labors, are, by a modern system of expert treatment, made clean of all poison m the blood, meir nervous energy k increased, and thek minds are made clear. ( That to be cured or not leJe cured k no hnger the question; therefore everybody who k not well and desires to be cured by the safest, surest, quickest manner possible should present them selves at once. I have furnished from tone to time statements from people here who have been treated and expressed themselves as being highly pleased; in fact, some of whom think k marvelous that they re ceived such happy results kt so short a time after having suffered for months and years in some cases, and had given up hope that they could be made healthy and happy again.
