Liginger, chair- man of the commission in presenting bis annual report today "It has also demonstrated that the commission Is more than self-sustain- ing. The state derives almost ?14, 000 from tbla department for the year." t The commission exacts 6 per 'cent, of the gross receipts of each boxing match held under its directions. "Ex- penses of the body, including the sec- retary's salary, are not allowed to mount .nen.aiinum. "..The state, therefore, is enriched by about through its control of this branch.of athletics, Last year boxing clubs held matches in 'Wisconsin, averaging four bouts to the show. Ten boxers were suspended or bar- red from the state.during the twelve months. Among these was Packey McKarlaiid, who was adjudged' gui'ity of-BtalliiiK. PRICE SAID HAVE BEEN PUT O'N HANDY ARTICLE- WHAT'S THE IDEA? Wan A fully signed recall peti- tion. Hest prices paid. A new conuiiodity made its appear- ance on the local market horizon this morning, and although the supply be somewhat limited, the demand is brisk. The Herald has it on good authority, that the recent recall petition, which was thought to he a dead issue, is still in existence and is likely to cause some uneasi- ness in the vicinity o! the cily hall. FIFTY WOULD BUY IT The instigators oi this petition .were appioacheil the other day by well.known business man in the city, who inquired as to what price would cause it to change hands.. Fifty doll- ars was offered, but the sale .was not effected, as those who had it', figured that it' was worth..more than a more dollars and cents valuation, to them, and that it might come in handy. It seems to lie' all ovcc the lahor bureau. The labor men-want a hur- eau, and; some of the other citizens do not want it." The commissioners don't just know yet. want it or not. The recall -faces them whichever way they turn. U they create a civic labor bureau, the objectors promise to bring down the recall in all its twenty-four hours. If it is not granted, there is a recall petition all nicely signed, ready to prove their undoing. "It is pretty small business to ac- cuse me or catering to the lahor said the mayor this morning! "The labor men. have -asked for this bureau for. three years, and it .was to have ;fceen .started under ;Mr. Tracy's1 department.

Now. is to start this bureau if we are ever going to do it. It is hot needed in times when work is'plentiful, but would fill a nw! iLDw; when..the jobs are scarce." The .attitude of the commissioners at- the-present time is one of wait. They ate waiting on an expression of public opinion, and it it is not forth- coming, the matter may. go to a vote.

Each is supported by nat- ural obstacles. The foremost three lines are distinct groups of numerous lakes. The fourth and strongest de- fence line is the Vistula river, extend- ing from the Russian frontier to the Baltic. "Outside these defence lines, the Germans have on the northeast, the very strong "fortress of Konissberg, w-Hh fortified advance positions at Web Jan and Habian. This fs situated on the flank of the. Russian lines, and must bo invested, necessitating the de- tachment of a considerable force. "The foremost three defence lines are extensively fortified. "There are important and perman- ent fortifications at Allenstein and Boyen, and the whole is filled with lakes, leaving only comparatively nar-: row defiles for the advancing troops.! The country ia full of fortifications, partly provisional and partly "field works, most of which are' armed with heavy guns. A frontal attack would be a very difficult task.

In counlries where beer is used as a fable age, dyspepsia is pi-aclically unknown. So is stomach (rouble in general. In Germany beer is more frequent- ly drank than at meal time.
