THE FIGHTING BROTHERS
Tales Told At the Ringside
By W. A. Phelon
, , yy KE of the biggest fighting contracts I ever undertook," remarked Jake
Ki.rain one day last sanuner, "aside froBi my meeting with John L.
S SuHivan, came off in England these 24 years gene by and I never
got a shilling for it, either. It was good training for me, though, and the comedy
features ef the affair were so rich that I felt well rewarded for my time and
"I was training for my fight with Jem Smith, the English champion, and was
running on a country road with Charlie Mitchell, when I collided with a big, dark,
brown man who was coming round a bend, leading a horse by the halter. He
rolled in the dust; the horse lit out, and a swarm of brown men seemed to rise up
from everywhere to chase him. "We had blundered into a camp of gypsies, their
tents and wagons being only a few yards away, and they seemed good and sore
about either the upsetting of their al or the escape of the horse. Anyhow, sev
eral of them strong young men who bore a family likeness advancd toward us,
cursing and shaking their fists. Mitchell and I drew together for protection, and
were expecting to fight against long knives the nezt moment, when the oldest of
the men, waving back his followers, stepped up to us. 'You are Kilrain and
Mitchell,' said he. Tve seen you both. You think you are fair lords o' the road
side, don't you? Running along this way and scaring honest folks' horses, isn't
it? Well, you are fighters. You are going to get some fighting, by Bengui! But
it'll be fair fighting, never you fear. Let one of you meet me, and you'll learn that
our tents hold better knockers than you ever saw. Which one will meet me?'
"I volunteered, and there was a short conference among the gypsies, who were
five in number that is, this one group in front of us. They were disputing about
something, but seemed to settle it when the first speaker stepped out, put up his
hands, and rushed. I sparred a few seconds, then shot over a high left, and down
he went, dead to the world. ,
"A shout rose from the gypsies, but it was not a shout of fury it sounded
more like pleasure. Another brown man started towards me.
"'I have always said,' he explained, 'that my brother, whom you just put
down, was a very inferior fighter, and this proves it. Here I come!'
"fie wasn't half bad, for an amateur, and it took two minutes of good hard
work to get him where I could drive one home. He fell, and again they all shouted.
A third one came lorwaro.
" 'I'm a far better knocker than my brother,' said he, 'but they never would
acknowledge it. Put up your mawleys!' He happened to run into a straight right
inside of one minute, and was all through. The fourth one came on.
" Say, man,' I objected, Tve had plenty of exercise, and Mitchell is just spoiling
for a battle. Why not try him for a change.'
" 'Kay, nay,' said the fourth gypsy. We mHst get a fair measure of com
parison, Kilrain, d'ye see? Now tell me, honestly, if I am not far better than my
brothers.' And he was, for I had to go like a tiger before I sent him down with
a one-two on neck and jaw.
The fifth brother held up his hand. "Not for mine,' said he. 1 may not be the
best knocker in our family, bHt yonll agree with me, Kilrain, that I'm the wisest
"And as Mitchell and I trotted down the road, we coHld see the five brothers
disputing and gesticulating, evidently quarreling as to which of .them was really
entitled to the biggest share of glory."
Thorpe Sure of Success In Baseball
Fans Figure That Great Indian Athlete Will Give Some Classy Exhibitions
in Sunning the Bases.
: By MONTY.
NEW" YORK, X. T Feb. 17. Big
Jim Thorpe will make good.
That is, he will make good
again. Just as he did when his Uncle
am asked him to squolch the rest of
the world at Stockholm, Just sCs he did
when Glenn Warner sent hm forth to
slaughter palefaqes on the gridiron,
and just as he did when Jim Sullivan
showed him how playing professional
baseball affected amateur standing and
asked if he was guilty. Everybody
knows now how Jim Thorpe made
rood then. He said: "Yes. Mr. Sulli
l did it." Now Johnny McGraw asks
Jim to make good as a New York
Giant. Jim says he will try, which
means, to those who know him, that
be will succeed.
Thorpe's keen mina, stout heart and
ability to concentrate himself wholly
on the particular task at hand makes
him the ideal type of man, mentally
and morallv. to carve a name for him
self in baseball's hall of fame.
One little occurrence within the last
six months shows a splendid insight
into the manner of man that is Jim
Thorpe. It was at the national all
around championship at Celtic park.
Long Island, y last fall. Thorpe was
after Martin Sheridan's world's record.
Nearly all the events had been com
pleted, and there were only the broad
jump and the half mile run remain
ing. Coach Warner called Thorpe
aside. He said: "Jim, if you want
tnat record you'll have to beat 21 feet
in the jump and also exceed your best
in the halg. Now go to it!"
Breaks Tno Records.
Thorpe was all tired out. He had
gone through an ordeal already that
only unusual athletes will even a
tempt. Thorpe walked up to the take
off, measured off 20 strides from It,
stood poised a moment to get (the
proper balance, then tore down the
narrow path and Jumped.
When the figures, over 23 feet, were
announced, the thousands arose and
cheered him to the echo. His record
was assured, even with a mediocre per
formance in the half mile. But Thorpe
put his new mark beyond all reaching
and cantered home in the half mile
er 20 yards ahead of Bremedus, of
Thorpe puts this marvelous eoncen
trative power into every single move
he makes. In the game with Penn,
when the marvelous Carlisle machine
had crumpled, when big Powell and
Arcasa. Thorpe's fellow backs, were out
of the game, one for infringement of
the rules, and the other with an in
jury, Jim kept ftgnting on. He was a
noble figure in there, battling against
odds that seemed hopeless, -ret never
yielding an inch when he had an
opportunity to contribute toward what
might be 'a chance for, an eleventh hour
turning of defeat into victory. Jim
Thorpe, though he had carried the ball
two-thirds of the time in the early
stages of the game, continued to be
the only Indian that could make any
impression on the hostile line or ends.
He was fatigued to a degree that in
most men would mean submission, yet
he would gather all of himself to

So much for thosa phases of Mr.
Thorpe. There are other things he
must have to be a ball player. Can he
throw? Can he catch? Can he hit?
Can he run buses?

football 30 yards on a forward pass
with merelv an abrupt snap of the
wrist, direct to the hands of the re
ceiver, will have no doubt as to his
ability to control the balL Those who
have seen him hurl a discus and put a
shot will stake plenty on his amount

catch a twisting spiral punt on the
dead run seems to give a criterion on
how he will take care of baseballs in
his territory. Imagine a man dashing
from first base at a rate of 16 seconds
to the 100 yards, and then broad jump
ing 23 feet into second base. How would
a second baseman feel with such a base
runner bound his way? As to his bat

LOSE T0EL PASO
High School Wins Basket
ball Game, 24 to 31 Girls
EI Paso's former defeat at Albuquer
que was partially wiped out Saturday
night when the El Paso and Albuquer
que High school basketball teams met
in a superbly played contest at the Y.
M. C. A. gym. The match went to the
local boys by the score of 24 to 31. but
only after an exciting battle in which
the smooth team work and accurate
passing of both fives eclipsed any other
game which has been played with out
side teams by the local quintet.
Both clubs started with a run. and it
was a full five minutes of fast play
when the first basket was rimmed by
Kilburn. The New Mexico squad re
taliated with two well thrown shots
which tallied baskets. The first half
of the match was played under the
collegiate rules, and in the second the
A. A. U. standard was used. The play
was even more furious toward the end
of the second half, as the local players
broke up- several long shots which the
New Mexicans had relied upon. The
excellent work of the guards prevented
the Albuquerque students from fast
During the first part of the second
half the EI Paso five increased their
score by accurate passes to their for
wards who played under the Albuquer
que goal, and baskets were inevitable.
Against this revival the Albuquerque
squad failed to display the brand of
play which they had put up in the first
half, but kept the local quintet from
scoring by good guarding. Several foul
throws in the last few minutes of play
boosted the New Mexico score several
points. The match -was fast and clean
Half of the large crowd which at
tended the match were continually ar
guing with W. McMillan, the referee,
while the other half cheered the play
ers. ''Kilburn was the chief offensive
star of the local team, with a tally of
14 oolnts. Robertson came next with
three baskets and Hill tailed with three !

Canna brothers were credited with
throwing all of the Albuquerque points.

Hard luck at throwing baskets lost
the game for the local High school girls'
