THE GREAT FIGHT: WHAT IT SHOWS.
It is a sad commentary upon the
boasted milization of the nineteenth
century, that so brutal an affair as the
Sullivan-Kilrain fieht should be al-
lowed. It was not only allowed, but
attended by immense crowds, and
enioved bv them doubtless as no
other erent would have been. It
almost equals in interest, and to
some surpasses in importance, a na
tional election, upon which hinge
such stupendous destinies. This is
shown by the fact that the editiou
of the New York World containing
an account of the fight lacked only
a few copies of being as large as
that edition containing the result of
the last presidential election. There
is many an individual in this coun
try who is well acquainted by read
ing and hearsay with the two slug-
gerg who could not tell you the
President of the United States and
This shows a depraved condition

Governors blow and bluster about it,

the meantime high State and city
and county officials attend and cheer
the performance. It was even boast
ed by the manager of the affair,
when it was over, that the sheriff
concluded to allow it ero on, as he
could not contend with 3,000 men
who wished to see it. The New
York World, knowing how so choice
a bit of sensational news could be
enjoyed, went to the trouble of put
ting up telegraph wires to tne scene
of the contest. Yet the Governor
didn't know (?) where it was to be.
Government becomes but a traves
ty when it has to enforce the laws
without the' moral support of the
people ; where its efforts to counter
act a great evil are rendered futile
by the fact that the evil is counten
anced, upheld and enjoyed by the
people in general.

Park's Horse Uer!
In offering to the public Parker's
Safety Whiflletree, I present an article
that is good and durable, and which will
be appreciated for the convenience and
safety it furnishes all who drive. With
the use of this device ranch labor is saved
in hooking and unh oking horses besides
the safety and assurance it gives against
accidents and runaways and smash-ups,
as the horse can be released from the ve
hicle instantly without the occupants
moving out of their seats, and with no
more effort than would be employed In
lifting a two-pound weight.
SOME POINTS of EXCELLENCE
It is invaluable in breaking young
horses, or horses that are in the habit of
running away, or horses that are usually
kind and tractable under ordinary eir
cumstaneas but nervous and excitable in
noisy, crowded thoroughfares.
The most timid lady can drive a spirited
or dangerous animal without fear of
harm. It is strongly made, the best ma
terial being used in its construction, and
it will cutwear any buggy. It is made
interchangeable in all its parts, and can
be duplicated at a trifling cost.
A horse can be hooked up in less than
one-fourth the time employed by the old
way. No change to be made in the har
ness in using the tree.
It is the best thing for the purpose that
has ever been invented.
It is a saving of time and labor, and in
many instances will save life and prop
erty. I invite inspection and investiga
tion of this tree, and a practical test of
all I claim for it.
