Tlint Sprinkler and Sweeper.
A novel btreet-sweeping machine has been
put into actual work on Philadelphia
trects. Its-Jecided novelties are that It
carries Its own sprinkler the rear part
of the lank hoiding the water that, In
stead of sprinkling the street to keep the
dust down, the revolving brush is kept
dampened all the time, thus avoiding the
mud and water on (ho streets necessary In
tbe old methods; and tbe most Important
of all, that the dirt taken up Is thrown
directly upon the endless carrier, which
lakes It up and empties it Into tbe tank
composing the front of the machine. This
tank is removable, and when filled is lifted
out and an empty one substituted, while
tbe filled one Is carted away, dispensing
with all shoveling and dust. The machine
weighs but 1,300 pounds, and In Its trials
has demonstrated Its merits in a way very
gratifying to those Interested. One of
them Is now In actual operation.

Capt. Horan Admltn niMen Are Too

(Special to The Times.)
New York, Oct. 3. Capt. Horan, of the
Cambridge athletes, does not think much of
the chances of his team with Yale In the
games to be held on Saturday.
"I am not sanguine of victory," he says.
"In fact, I shall be much surprised and cor
respondingly pleased If we capture a ma
jority of the events. To Yale I concede
the hammer, shot, broad Jump and 100
yard run. Cambridge, I think, will win the
350-yard, quarter-mile, half and one-mile
"The hurdles and the high Jump I con
sider In doubt, while the 100-yard event
seems -safe for Richards; yet Lewlng, who
will start, may prove to be a surprise. He

The Corbelt ar.d Fitzslnuuoius fight, 6o
far as Texas Is concerned, is done for. The.
action or the legislature of that State yes
tcnlay was discussed -ever where alwut

on the boxers and their friends.
The iiucslinii that was on every liody's
tongue was, will Corbelt and Fltzslinmons
fight? Pome thought they would, others
thought they wouldn't, and Hie "wouldn't"
ing no doubture nearly right.
It is a will known laet that Corbelt did
not want to make a match wllli.l'itzsim
mous He iiislstid that he should not be
usked to light a man who was not in his
cla-s. He ni'd l.c wn imposed upon when
he was forced Into the fight'liy newf-papcr
and 'oilier hard hearted pecph.'.
ntzsiinnions has been saying he was
siiolllng lor a fight. He piouubly thought
ho was when the match was first made.
He seems, however, lo hate changed his
mild. If he had not he would cot have
made the kicks hat have been heard from
him o' laie. Men who really w mil lo fight
do mil lay awake al night watching for
things lo turn up that the can use to keep
them I rem fighting.
The present Mains of things gives lioth
Corlietl and Fllzslnininns a chance that
it is ci.tlioly sare to pndlct they will will,
ingly ai-cept. That is lncy,"we wanted
to fight, but the law ctoprcd us." That Is
about what they will tay, ai.d there will

It will do to because the authorities of

There Is a good deal of ellsappolntment

Morris was formerly a Washlngtonian, but

liefore he left this city, but has improved
greatly iu the past year, and good Judges
of boxers here and elsewhere believe him
to be capable of giving any 150-pound man

try a very ttlff argument. Iu fact, some
or his more enthusiastic supporters declare
that none of the 150-pounders are as good
as be Is. Morris is much disappointed at
falling to get on a matcli with McCoy. He
says he believes he can liest him, and as
the Kid has made quite a name recently
Fred says such a victory would be tbe mak

McKenzie, right guard; Singer, right tackle;
S. Maupln, right end; Kelly, quarter-back;
Parsons, right half; Yount, left half; J.

himself as more than pleased al the recep

American cricketers. When ciuestlotiHcl as
to his opinion of American cricketcTs, he
acknowledged that the game had riMchesl n
much higher standard in thM country than
he had nupiioscd. The- Philadelphia team,
he said, furuUned the Llggest urprle for
bun and his men.
In reganl to the proposed illt of the
Philadelphia!!- to England next i.eaon,
"The Philadelphia team Is a very strong
one, bat I think it will meet with defeat at
the harels of ll.e firsKlass coumii's of
England. Your men would certainly Ma ml
a good chance of defeating the unhersities
and the lcer counties, but against the pro

chances would be next to noihfiig.

WO" HIS CASE.
A IMitliulelpUla. Liivryer' Iilen of
Thrift awl How It Worked.
Over In Philadelphia dwelt a young lair
student who fell inlove jnstas heirosalioufc
to Ik- ailmittc-d to practice, says the New
York Journal. The slrl's farther alto be
longed to ILc profession anil wa reckoned
pretty smart, as Philadelphia lawyers so.
The old fellow gave a partialconjcnt to tho
young man's pl-adliigs, I nit concluded he
would try the student and tee if I.e was
worthy to be his eon in-law. So he said:
"The case of Blank against Blanklusbeen
on the calander several years It has been
and conies up again for argument at the
nest general term. I am counsel for the
plaintiff. I have fczd the cafe four years,
hut now I Him it over to you. Here ara
the papers; see what you can do."
The young mjn took the papers and went
to work with a vim born of love for if ho
won the case should he not ako win a brideT
At last lire seemed to him worth the living.
He studied the case thoroughly. lie con
sulted the authorities and was loaded and
primed for a brilliant argument w hen tho
court convened. He made bis plea and won
the case without any trouble.
With n heart overflowing with Joy he re
turned lo his prospective father-in-law
and, slapping down tbe papers, he ex
"See here, sir; thecase is won! Thcsearo
the proofs. What you tried for years to do
I have accomplished at a single term of
court. Now, may I Lave your daughter?"
The old fellow looked up with a imtla
upon his face as he replied:
"I think you a fool and you can't have
my daughter. But I -n ill Just give you a
little gratuitous advice: It n tiue 1 had
the case four years without winning it,
and it is ako true that I made thousand
of dollars out of it; but ou have gore and
settled it; and what baveyou made? About
$50. No.slr, you oin't have my daughter."

A Brick Vault Which Contain,, llloeka
of Steel That Are Iimilunble.
In the midst of the ruins of the demol
ished building on Sansom street, above
Sixth, where the firm of Mackellar, bmiths
& Jordan, type founders, is preparing to
erect a new foundry, stands a large trick
and steel safe, the antiquity of which,
dates back almost a century.
The safe is built up from the cellar, on
substantial foundations, to a level with
the first llcor. Ur. llackellar, one of the
members of the firm, said recently that
what it contains is the key to their business.
The value of the books and papers of the
firm pale into insignificance when com
pared to the appraisement of the matrices
and dies with which Imprcsi-Ions of type
are made that have been stored In this
safe for many years. They could never
be replaced if destroyed, and tbe firm
takes exceeding care of them. The safe
or vault Is about 20 feet lorg, 10 feet high
and as many feet wide. Its one entrance
Is a doorway on the cast side, which is
closed at night by an iron and steel door
half an inch thick.
The -wall?, floor and roof of the safe
are of steel plates, backed by three rows of
brick. Inside, the matrices anddiepuiichcs
are systematically arranged in boxes and
shelves around the walls. In the morn-.
Ing those matrices which are needed are
taken from the vault, which is now reached
by a shaky plank bridge, and carried to
the foundry. At night they arc taken back
and locked up.
When the new building is up the safe
will be reconstructed for the second time
la Its hUlory. Once before, some thirty
years argo, It was strengthened and made
fire-proof by the addition of steel walls and
better building of the outer brick walls.
It Is now fireproof and so arranged that,
should the building which contained It have
burned down, the safe wouldntlll ha veatood
In the original spot, for its foundation res
cil on the cellar floor.
The building which the type founders ar
about to erect will be higher than the former
one and will he built of rompetlaa trick.
