slightly, is entitled to
a victory. Tho boxers know about all the
good judges going, and can pick exponents
of whichever of thoso two schools thoy like;
but whore the real difficulty comes in is in
conscientiously judging'a bout, part of which
has been in favor of ono uian
and part in favor of his opponent,
and in deciding which puts in tho telling
blows. This was well illustrated at tho lliui
liattan Athletic Olub's entertainment last
Saturday night. The six.round bout between
feather-weights McOIll and Davis was all in
favor of McGill the first three rounds , even
the fourth round , entirely for Davis in tho
fifth, and the last round was in faor of
Davis thu first half, and about oven the re

another round or two. The Woiild's and

thought that McQill scored tho most points
in the six-round contest, but wroto : " A

diot was undoubtedly a fair ono. as far as
scoring the most cloanhits went, but boxing

than Benny's glove flicking on Davis's nose.
The New York Athletic Club made strenu
ous offorts not long ago to absorb tho old
Dauntless Rowing Club. They wanted to
take over the champion eight-oared crew in a
body, together with adozon or so of tho other
best men in tho club. They wero so anxious
to get them that it was represented that thoy
Stood ready to buy out the club's plant at a
round sum, thereby, of courso, terminating
its existence. Tho Dauntless boys acknowl
edged their thanks at tho compliment,
but refused to go into tho big club, saying
that the old blue and white flag was what
they had grown into championship form un
der and that was good enough for them as
long as they were ablo to pull a boat.
Sticklers for exactness in amateur athletes
still deny Fole-Vaulter Baxter's right to his
new reoord of 11 feet 6 inohes. They claim
that even If the pole the champion vaulted
with did break it was a try, and the feat
should not bo allowed a record because it
was not accomplished in ono of three at
tempts. Prof. Qoldio says he lowored the
bar a quarter of an inoh after tho champion
took one try with his now pole to see if it
suited him and that Baxter wont over the bar
on the third attempt, whon it was
placed at 11 feet S incheB. Thcro Is no
particular reason for restricting an athlete
to three " trys " whon going for a reoord.
Athletio rules are silent on this point, al
though thoy expressly say that in ft compe.
tition n contestant is out " after throo
failures. An amateur who has pluck enough
tp try for a record has n hard enough job
without being 1 mpered with such a limited
restriction as tho throo trys rule. Six trys

trying to think. The Earl could bear it uo
longer; he rose and wont to his sido.
" Solwyn," ho said, kindly "friend, gTave

that they aronot true Kaythat you aronot tho
forger that Fostrr says you -are that it is not
you who havo robbed, by a stroko of your

For a moment Selwyn looked at Foster,
then back at Kack at tho Earl.
" So ho is a detoctivo a human blood
hound, is he f" he said; " well, I half thought
so. I think, knowing how muoh I dislike
tho breed, you should not have brought him
into my houfo. And bo says I am a forger,
does he ? lie will huvo to prove it, and that
will be difficult."
" Not so difficult, perhaps, as you think,
Mr. Solwyn," the detective said.
" But. for God's sake!" the Earl exclaimed,
" deny it. Think of the ohildron. For their

For a moment Max's lips quivered, a spasm
of pain crossed his face, then it grew calm
" I cannot, of course, contradict a gentle
man," ho said. " I will not stop now; I will
talk of the the children some other time."
Ho turned towards the door, but Foster
barred his uay.
