Deep Seated Disease Is Caad by

Rheumatism is a sturdy Joe, and
it never uses gentle methods wrtk its
victims. So if you are afflicted with
the disease, you may as well realize
from the first that ytm have a real
fight on your hands and that you
cannot win unless you can use the
very best methods known.
If the disease was confined to the
surface, there might be some logic in
expecting relief from fa clutches by
local applications applied to the sur
face. But you will soon learn that a
disease that can cause so much pain
and suffering is deep-seated, and
has its source far below the surface
of the skin. The pains may be slight
at first, and that is where the vic

It is seldom that Australian boxers
hate given a great deal of attention
to reports of fabulous sums offered in
America and England for fights be

but of late the stories about fortunes
offered for the proposed Dempsey -Carpentier

of them thinking. As a result several
Australian fighters are seriously
thinking of imading- the states and
England, expecting to reap some of
the soft money which the Yankees
have so often tried to get 'themselves
in other dimes. There are two or
three who will no doubt make good

they want a sure thing for them
selves, and the champion demands
his big share, win, lose or draw,
not giving a rap whether the
other fellow gets a penny or not.
It is high time that a stop was pot
to such enormous purses they do the
boxing game no good The public pays
the freight every time, and they do
not have any guaranty that they will
get. a run xor tneir money mat was
demonstrated in the Carpentier-Beckett
match, which lasted 10 seconds
over one minute, manv of the patrons
paying as high as J25 for standing
room. It is time that boxing boards
passed rules limiting the price of
tickets for such matches.
As regards the meeting between
Dempsey and Carpentier, tt is liable
to be another such a match as Beckett
and the Frenchman. Dempsey works
fast, and the fight will never go be
yond the seven-round stage provid
ing the French champion tries to mix
with the world's title holder Demp
se will have every advantage
weight, reach and height, besides age
which. In addition to his bitting
power, should spell victory for him
without a doubt.
