Iloxcd Six Rounds nt the Aroiin in
Philadelphia, July 2C Henry Pep

and Jack Bonner, of Summit Hill, Pa ,
boxed a lively six-round bout at the
arena tonight. Poppers proved himself
an excellent boxer, and, being quite
shifty on his feet, managctl to escape
nearly all of Bonnet 'a blows. They
mixed It up pretty warmly in the fifth
round and there were borne good short
arm exchanges, but Peppers generally
got out of reach of tho straight blows
and at times ho had Conner pretty
well used up In chasing; lilm about the
Tho bout ended with honors about
even. It was stated that Peppers is
slatid for a twenty-round fight at San
Francisco in, a couple of weeks nnd
this probably explains his desire- to

HOW ANSON SIQNED MERRITT.
The Catcher Wns Ilarcfootcd nnd in
lines When Discovered.
Undo Anton hus picked -up moro ball
playcra than any other leaguo manager.
His reputation for letting youngsters havo
a fair trial has sent many a new man to
him with a request for a chance to play
ball. Sovcral years ago Anson wus In Bos
ton with his Chicago team. Ho was In a
bad way for catchers and was about
ready to do a turn behind tho bat himself
whon a boylch-looklng fellow,, drevssod
poorly nnd in his tnro ftcl, camo up to
Undo as ho was standing In tho hotel cor
ridor ono morning and said:
"Aro you Anson?"
"Yes, sir. Who nro you?"
"Well, I seo you reed a kotchcr and I
walked hero all tho way from Providence
to seo If you'd give mo a chanco. I'm a
kctohorand I think I'll do. said the follow.
"You do, eh? Well, go In there and get
a square meal and then como out to tho
grounds with the players," said Anse,
"I ain't got any uniform," remarked
"I'l get you one," replied the big Swede.
And an hour later tho Chlcagoa were, on
tho way to tho South End grounds, ac
companied by their new catcher.
"what's tho duck's name? " said sovcral
of tho men to Anson. The captain didn't
know nnd declared It didn't make any dif
ference. Rut Just to settle his players'
curiosity, Anso asked tho new man.
"Merrltt's my name!" wns tho answer.
Two games wero played bv the Chtcagos
that day, and Merrltt catmht in both. Ho
handlid Hutchison and Gumbort without
a passed ball and hit tho 'ball on tho nose.
After the gamo Anson signed him to a
formal contract. Merrltt is now with tho
WITH THE CYCLE RACERS.
F. A. McFarland, Arlando Stevens and
J. Frank Statbuck, who made known their
wish for a pursuit team race with any
other three riders In the United State's
for $300 a sldo but a few days ago, will bo
aecommcdaled by Tom Eck, who will
cover tho money as soon as deposited for
his charges. Earl jvlser, A. C. Mertens and
John S. Johnson, adding tho latter to his
string for tho occasion. Eck say3 that
thcro Is no doubt In his mind that McFar
land, Stevens and StarLuck Is tho strong
est team In this country at the pursuit
game, outsldo tho thrco men ho has se
lected. Tho rcccrd too buzzes merrily In tho
bonnet of Earl Klscr, who says that It
will bo but a week at tho most after tho
closo of tho circuit before he secures tho
mllo record. Klser made the attempt for
this mark sixteen times at Coronda after
a winter of hard training and did not get
it then. Johnson tried ten times In the
south last fall so that the say-so of the
Klser of today is not tho doing. A mllo
In 1.39 1-5 is no Joke and a mllo In better
tlmo Is far worse.

Montreal, Canada will probabl take .1
national circuit date somo tlmo late In
August, having applied to Chairman Mott,
who said that tho date will bo nllowod
providing an opening may bo obtained.
Montreal was a circuit meet town In "DC.
Eddio Bald says that he will ride no
more match races against Tom Cooper
and Earl Klser without another rider In
tho contest Ho gives as his reason for
this tho hellef that the two riders work
moro or less together. Bald pays that
this decision Is linal and absolute, and
that tho race proposed for Manhattan
Beach must bo mado an Invitation affair
with four or moro riders, or his agree
ment, which Is not yet signed, will re
main that way
The caso of Allen Jones, the California
racing man. Is very peculiar. Jones In
tended last spring to como to tho cast for
the national circuit. A rider of excep
tional hf.ecd, his chances for success were
most excellent. Rolng employed by at
prominent firm on the Coast, he was in
duced to enter tho Sunday races by them.
The father of Jones is a prominent divine,
and his position was peculiar with a son
racing on tho Sabbath. His plea won,
and Jones Is compelled to renounce rac
ing while nt tho height of his career.

of whether ho wins or loses, ho will
mako tho match with McAullffo or Lav
lgno. Kid Mcl'oy Is demonstrating his gieat
skill In cveiy battle. Meeting Dick Mooro
tho other night, McCoy started tho game
with a swing on Moore's ribs nnd Mooro
lesponded with two light body blows.
McCoy punched Moore lightly on tho
head twice and tho crowd cried: "Stop
playing with him." MrCoy laughed and
started at Moore, but tho bell rang.
Mooro rushed tho Kid In tho opening of
tho second round and got a, right and
left on tho face. Then tho Hoosler boy
began to work. McCoy feinted, drew up
closo to Mooro and uppercut him neatly.
Mooro went down on his knees, but
camo up quickly McCoy feinted again,
got Inside Mooro's guard and swung his
right to tho chin nnd then his loft. Moore
fell on his faro and had to bo carried
to his chair. McCoy never had an easier
victory. T! Kid Is a pugilistic wonder.

At reduced prices, still continues. We have $100.00 Bicycles ranging in price from
$50.00 to $75.00. You can buy department store bicycles at any price. We have none.
It is bad policy to buy a bicycle that will turn out to be a neck breaker. Remember,
we are the largest dealers in the city, and can offEr you better inducements than any
one in the city. Not in business for one year, but here to stay.
