IN II PRIZE FIGHT
Presbyterian Minister, Formerly
a Pugilist, Officiated at a
Bloody Boxing Match
BOX, AND GET RIGHT WITH GOD
8ald He. Would Rather Be a Boxer
Than a 81ssy Watching Women at
Street Corners How He Justifies
His Presence at a Prize Fight.
Omaha, Neb. Tho star feature of
the Buckles-Fitzgerald twelve-round
boxing bout was the sermon, by the
Rev. "Kid" Wedge, referee, delivered
during tho Interval between the pre
liminaries and the main event
The Rev. Mr. Wedge Is an ex-pugl-11st,
an enthusiastic T. M. C. A. work
er and pastor of a little Presbyterian
church at Monroe, Neb. He happened
to be In town In connection with the
Omaha Theological Seminary, where
he was a former student, and was
called Into tho ring to umpire tho
After tho preliminaries had been
disposed of the Rev. Mr. Wedge lean
ed up against the ropes of the ring,
and, facing an audience of 1,200 fight
fans, pulled from hlB pocket a hymn
book and announced a selection. He
read It through and then commenced
to sing, being Joined by many in the
audience. The singing finished, ho
said that he wanted to make a few
remarks with reference to prize fight
ing, saying In part:
"There is Just as much intelligence
In the prize ring as In the pulpit, and
If the game Is conducted as the rules
prescribe there Is no more brutality
than In golf or polo."
Explaining his presence as a ref
eree of a fight he said:
"Christ was the greatest mixer tho
world has ever seen, and because I
am a mixer following in the footsteps
of tho Nazarene I am here to-night
go that I can get close to you men, so
that I can do you the most good. To
be saintly one does not have to look
sick and feeble.
"You can go about helping those
who do not need help, but the
truly good man la the one who
helps the poor man and feeds the
'bum' of the gutter, and I want you
to understand that the world Is dead
wrong about the cruelty of the boxer.
Boxing is an honorable calling and is
much more respectable than playing
smear, rushing the can or chasing
around after other men's wives. I
would much rather be one of these
athletic gentlemen than to be an ad
dlepated sissy standing around on the
street watching the women walking
past and observing how high they lift
their dresses when they step over a
"There is a great work for ministers
to do, and if they do it they can save
the boys from going wrong. Let them
fit up gymnasiums in their churches
and give the boys boxing lessons. If
they will do this they can fill the
pews with the boys and young men
and they can keep them In the
churches and they will not go to the
"It is the fact that the young men
and boys have nothing to do after
they finish the labors of the day that
drives them to the devil. Learn to
box and get right with God, and you
will not go far out of the way."
Thus the Rev. Mr. Wedge closed his
remarks. He was greeted with tumul
tuous cheering, after which he called
the principals from their corners and
they went to pummeling each other,
the blood flying over the minister's
frock suit and his white shirt front

No better lotion for the tender skin

Too Old for a Good Complexion.
Miss M. E. Nobody is ever too old
to improve herself and certainly twen
ty is not such an advanced age that
you may not expect to have a perfect
complexion with sensible care. From
your lack of color and enlarged pores
I should say that you were anaemic
and had a poor circulation. You bad
better ask your physician to give you
a tonic to build you up. For the cir
culation you should try deep breath
ing exercises every day, and physical
culture too, If you can manage to de
vote fifteen or twenty minutes to it
The best cure for enlarged pores is
the dally use of the complexion brush.
Scrub your face with warm water and
a good soap, rinsing It oft well after
ward. This will open up the obstruct
ed glands and pores, and the pores
will contract gradually to their nat
ural size. If you scrub all over every
day In warm water with a larger
brush, you will find your circulation
and consequently your complexion
To Make Hair Stay in Curl.
Here are two formulas from which
to select. The first has a very drying
effect on the scalp and if used too
often will make the hair brittle. Do
not use It at all if your scalp is In
clined to dryness and, if you do use
It apply It not oftener than once a
wek or every ten days. The second
will not have a drying effect and may
be used every day if necessary.
Formula No. 1 Dry salts of tartar
(carbonate of potash), 1 dram; cochi
neal (powdered), 1-2 dram; liquor of
ammonia, essence of rose, 1 dram
each; glycerine, 1-4 ounce; rectified
spirit, 1 1-2 ounces; distilled water,
18 ounces. Let the mixture digest
with frequent stirring for a week and
then filter. Mo Isten the hair with the
lotion when dressing. The effect will
occur as the hair dries.
Formula No. 2 Gum arable, 1
dram; sugar, 1 dram; rose water, 2
ounces. Mix and dissolve. Moisten
the hair with this solution. Put up in
curling kldB or papers.

Arctic Club Accepts His Re
port Against Cook.
UNANIMOUS VOTE ON CHARGES
Commander Dissects Eival Explor
er's Claim to Have Beached
North Pole and Calls Him
New York, Oct. 5. Tho officers of
the Peary Arctic club met in the office
of the president, General Thomas H.
Hubbard, at CO Wall street and lis
tened to the reading of the official
statement of Commander Peary, In
which are embodied his charges that
Dr. Frederick A. Cook did not reach
the north pole and Is an Impostor. The
report was accepted by those present
by unanimous vote.
Those present at the meeting Includ
ed General Hubbard, Herbert L. Bridg
man, Edward C. Parish and Auto A.
General Hubbard said that the Pea
ry report would not bo released for
publication for at least a week, as elab
orate maps have to be made to go
While the utmost secrecy has been
maintained regarding the specific na
ture of the commander's charges,
which will point to Cook as an Impos
tor, they make an exhaustive analysis
of Cook's own story of his Journey to
the pole. Especially does the com
mander dissect Dr. Cook's statements
regarding his scant equipment for this
Members of the club say that Pea
ry's report goes sharply Into the ques
tion of tho amount of provisions that
would be imperative in such a journey
ns Cook describes. On the basis of the
amount Cook took on his two sledges
he confessed to have with him Peary
contends that these sledges could not
possibly have carried enough food to
last from Cape Thomas Hubbard, In
Grlnnell Land, to the polo and back to
this starting point. No game, It Is
pointed out, could have been shot
after leaving Cape Thomas Hubbard.

Does Not Want to Waive Claim to Dr.
Cook's First Report.
Copenhagen, Oct. 5. The announce
ment of Dr. Cook's willingness to re
quest the University of Copenhagen
to waive its claim to the first exam
ination of the records of his Journey
to the north pole causes disappoint
Tho rector of the university says,
"No such request has yet been receiv
ed from Dr. Cook, and it is Impossible
to say what attitude the university
will take toward tho suggestion that
American and other scientific bodies
shall first review the explorer's data."
The general public is inclined to be
annoyed at the suggestion that for
eign scientific bodies shall first see the
records. The people consider the
promise to give the university here
the first opportunity of passing upon
the records ns nothing but justice In
view of the honors heaped upon the
explorer by both the university and
the Danish people and their ungrudg
ing support and belief In his exploits.
Dr. Cook Makes a Correction.
Baltimore, Oct. 5. At his hotel here
Dr. Frederick A. Cook was shown the
dispatch from Copenhagen relative to
his reported Intention to request the
university of that city to waive Its
claim to the first examination of his
records. After reading the dispatch
carefully he said:
"A wrong Impression has been re
ceived in Denmark ns to just what I
said In Washington, and this, too,
seems not to have been perfectly un
derstood In this country. I shall ad
here to the original plan to have the
University of Copenhagen make the
first examination of my records, but I
shall nsk that university to withhold
the announcement of the result of such
examination- until the records shall
have been examined simultaneously by
all the geographical societies of the
world. Immediately after they have
been examined by the University of
Copenhagen duplicate copies of my
records will be submitted to all the
geographical societies of the world and
to any other scientific bodies desiring
Dr. Cook said that he expects the
final verdict of all scientific bodies
upon his records within six months
and that he will have learned of the
judgment of the University of Copen
hagen within about two months.
