' Well, the Braves copped the World's

ACORN A. C. HOLDS ,
(By "Old Man Gramp" at Ringside.)
. The Acorn A. C. held their monthly
smoker in the-club, rooms on Kossuth
street, -"Thursday - evening, about 500
followers -of . the roped arena being
present : - Five v entertaining bouts
were served to .'.'please, the-; fans the
feature bout of the evening being the
one between ''Irish'" O'Brien and?
"Fighting Dick" Rowan, Slim Bren
nan's new White Hope. Rowan won
the battle on, points, he haying- the
first three rounds of the four-round
set-to. The- curtain raiser was a
corker . between Young, j Hogan and
Mickey Lyons. In my opinion, it was
a corking draw. In the first round
Lyons floored Hogan with a right to
the jaw, but thereafter- it was nip
and tuck, bothy boys giving the fans
a good run for their money,.
The second bout was, as one "wag "
called it a "Tango Dance" between
Young Denny and Mickey Ramsey, by
name .but not by nature. Ramsey
and Denny are ardent supporters of
Christoforo Colombo although some
of my readers may think that they
were members . of the Ancient Order
of Hibernians. Raesey was the most
willing of the two, while Denny was
like a grasshopper, dodging his oppo
nent at all times and never willing to
mix it. The third bout was between
Young Nocman and Kid Handy from
Lewiston, Maine. 'In the third round
Handy put over a left' to Noonan's jaw
and the bout was over. This lad
Handy 'has one of the best left hand
kicks that has been seen tn Bridge
port in years and all he needs is a
little training and a good manager and
he will soon be heard from. The
star bout was a rather tame affair be
tween Teddy Hufobs of Pittsburg and
Dick Miller from New Haven. This
Is the same Miller that , was laid to
sleep by Young McAuliffe a year ago
in Eagle's hall. Hubbs got the de
cision on points. . '
Harry Morrlssey pleased the fana
present with a clever rendition of that
popular ballad entitled "Playing the
Game of Love."
We then had McCue and Harvey
with their banjos and they were fol

has just returned .from a two years'
trip to the coast. Williams was the
classiest looking referee, that has ever
handled about in this city. : His work
was beyond' reproach and he kept the
boys working at ajl times. Give us
a little, more of the . like of '.Williams
as the third man in the ring and the
fans jnay rest assured that they will
ge't their money's worth.

. v Announcer Brennan at the close of
the bouts had the following to say in
regard to the boxing game in this city:
"Gentlemen, it is the idea of the Acorn
club to have a smoker' of this - kind
once every month. The game is
practically dead in this city, for the
simple reason that the boxers are de
manding Federal League salaries jfor
six rounds of Boston Brave fighting
(by that I mean Stalling.) Until
they lower their prices the Acorn A.
C. will positively refuse to talk 'busi
ness with them."

KID M'COY IS 41
, BUT, STDLL IN, RING
' '5 Twenty-f enr years Is , a long ; time
for a. (fighter "to last,, bnt Kid McCoy,
the Hoosler middleweight, although
he will he forty-one years old today,
ia still able to pull off the "come
back" stuff, and to give (occasional
fiarhea of the "form which, made him
one of the cleverest fighters in the
world when- he was in hia prime.
Norman Sei by, to. give the y Kid his
right and proper name, was twrn Oct.
1T,1873,: in . a - Hoosler village about
forty miles from Indianapolis. ; Aa a
lad he was afflicted with the wander
lust.' and beat, his way over a . good
part of America. . His' first; real bjtr
tie was pulled ' off in Irdianapolis in
1890, when the' Kid, who had become
a Jack: of all trades, was workinar as
a-waiter i in a) restaurant. .. The Kid's
employer was an ex-pusilist, , and his
place was a sporting resort, with a
boxl-ng- rmg lot connection. One. day
young Selby ot into a dispute with
another waiter; and the Iboss ordered
the turbulent lads to wait until even
ing and settled their .quarrel with the
gloves in the .ring, upstairs, the loser
to lose his joh as well. .. McCoy- had
a fondness for his job, and he- put
it all over the other chap. His, em
ployer was so pleased with his show
ing that he. gave the Kid his start in
the (boxing- game. In 1893 he got a
job as assistant cook in (Bob Fitzsrm
m oil's .training camp, and, without
letting It -be known that he was " a
professional , boxer, he watched , Bob
at work and finally got a trial as spar
ring partner. McCoy was then little
more (than a lightweight, and he took
a' lot of hard knocks from j th
freckled fellow, "but at tie same "time
he gained valuaiblo experience. . When
Fits ouit the middleweight division 1
McCoy claimed the title, and held it
against all comers, although, his claim
was disputed by Tommy Ryan. Mc
Coy whipped .Gus , Ruhlin, Peter
Maher, "Joe Choynski, and other good
heavyweights, "but was knocked, out
by Jim Corbett. The Hoosier retir

of his time in Europe, ana was oro-

the Belgian playwright. He has made
several corre-backs in tne rng. ine
Kid has "been married no ; less than

merous bunch who carry: the slogan,
'Middleweight cnampion - ox ane

will "be twenty years old tomorrow.
McCoy is a native of New Jersey ana
has 'been 'battling in the ring since
1910. His claim to the middleweight
championship is based on his defeat
of George Chip, who alleged that, he
came the ititle-holder by; whipping

Old Doctor Otis Cranda.ll, who came
back strong with the St., Louis Feds
this year, will celebrate his twenty
sixth birthday. "Doc" was born , II
Fowler,' Ind., and played independent
bail in his. native state before he
busted into the league game on the
twirling staff , of the Cedar Rapids
Three-I " club. He. was going along
strong, having won about nine-teniths
of his games, when one day the man
ager used cuss words in his presence,
and Otis went away from there.
Eventually the manager wrote Otis
an apology, and he returned to Cedar
Rapids, where MoGraw also started
his league career. Muggsy always
had a fondness for the Iowa city, and
when he heard of Crandall he decid
ed to give him a trial. With the
Giants Otis acquired the name of
"Doc" because he was always -right
there to give first aid to the injured
when a pitcher went to pieces. He
saved many a game for the Giants.
