Irreverence One of Our Perils.
"ilifcfhlevous Is the irreverent and
scornful use of the tongue that often
vulgarizes the very temple of sweet
ness and purity," writes Rev. Newell
Dwight Hillis, D. D., In The Ladles'
Home Journal. "No person of refine
ment and culture can doubt that Ir
reverence Is one of the perils of our
day. In former times men entered the
cathedral, rich with colored glass, with
marble and pictures and rare tapes
tries, to whitewash the frescoes, smash
statues and use the paintings and
tapestries for doormats. But it has
been reserved for our generation to
enter the temple of reverence to de
stroy all ideals, to rob the noble names
of 'their grandeur and the noblest
places of their majesty. Today vul
garity permits sanctity to attach to
few objects or Ideas. In 1886, when
Athens revived the Olympian games
and America sent its representatives,
there Journeyed to that ancient land a
vender of patent medicines, who was
discovered sticking an advertisement
of his porous plaster upon the walls
of the- Parthenon!"

McCoy Knocked Out.
Jack McCormick of Philadelphia,
knocked out Kid McCoy in about
one minute at Chicago, Friday
night. The bout was to have been
for six rounds, and it was generally
thought that McCormick stood no
show at all. He himself said before
entering the ring that he was going
to do his best, and let it go at that.
The fight was so short and bo quick
ly over that there was almost noth
ing to it but the punch that put Mc
Coy to sleep. The fight was under
strict Queensberry rules, hitting
with one arm free permitted.
When the gong sounded McCor
mick started in to rush things, rely
ing on his greater weight and su
perior strength to ollsot McCoy's
science. He received a straight left
in tho mouth tho tirst time he tried
it and a second later a savage left
hook on the side of the head halted
him a second time. He then rushed
twice more, carrying McCoy to the
ropes both times. The first time he
hit McCoy over tho kidneys with his
right. The second time as they came
from the ropes still clinched McCoy
freed his left and sent a hook to Mc-
Cormick's cheek, dropping him to
the floor. McCormick lay quiet,
making a pretenso of claiming a foul
although none had been committed.
McCormick ros,e on the order of Eef
eree Hogan with a sheepish grin on
his face. The knockdown had not
injured him. The men squared off
once more and then came the end
like lightning from a clear 6ky. Mc
Coy was moving in cautiously;
around McCormick, both hands low
down, neither being as high as the
belt. McCormick suddenly let fly
his right and it landed full on tho
jaw. McCoy went down like a dead
man, flat on his back, legs and arms
outstretched, his face pointing
squarely to the coiling. It was evi
dent the instant he struok the floor
that his fighting was over for the
night at leaBt.
Pandemonium broke loose in tho
hall and there were wild yells for
McCormick, shrieks of "Get up, Kid,
get up." Hogan went down on one
knee by the side of McCoy and
shouted his call of the seconds in the
fighter's ear, but McCoy was past all
hearing. At the word "ten" he
raised his head slightly and Hogan
paused a second before ho shouted
'out," but McCoy was still out of it.
Thirty seconds would not have
brought him into condition to fight
