AN,l> KITCHIE MKKT TODAY
TO NAME I IIIKK MAN IN
THE RING,
SAN FRANCISCO, Cal., Nov.
18. —Tom Jones, acting for
Champion Ad 'Wolgast, promoter
James W. Coffroth and Willie
Ritchie met here this afternoon
to name a referee for the Thanks
giving day liattle. Wolgast al
ready has turned in his list of
eligibles, but nothing has been
heard from Ritchie on this score.
Both Jack Welch and Eddie
Graney have been eliminated,
neither caring to officiate. Wol
gast said he would be satisfied
with a San Francisco referee, and
it was believed that Jim Oriffln
stood the best chance of being
named.
Not since Battling Nelson and
Jimmy Britt signed articles Tor
their memorable battle at Colma,
Cal., seven years ago, have pugil
istic circles been so deeply stirred
over a buttle involving the light
weight championship of the world
ag they are over the Willie
Ritchie-Ad Wolgast contest,
which la scheduled to take place
in Daly City, Cal., just over the
boundary line of San FranoißCO
county, on Thanksgiving after
noon.
Ever since, their, four-round
bout in San Francisco last spring
in which Ritchie easily bested the
champion, there hag been a de
mand for a return match over the
long route, Ritchie never once
getting off the champion's trail.
Ritchie, although rather large
for a 133-pounder, is confident
that he can make the weight
without weakening himself, and
with such an expert trainer as
Billy Nolan, conceded to be the
best conditioner in America, he
believes that he will go into the
ring with all of lilb strength.
The challenger never touches
liquor or tobacco, always keeps
himself in good shape and in all
ways is a model boy, his one dis
sipation being candy, which, of
course, he cuta out when training.
He is a consistent and faithful
trainer and liveß up to all camp
rules. Nolan has his own idoas
about training and he invariably
sends his men into the ring in fit
condition.
Nola is a great believer in the
simple life, usually taking his
charges to his ranch in Northern
California and compelling them
to live as close to nature- as pos
sible. Nolan is a stickler for diet,
selecting food with extreme care
and preparing it* "Just so."
Ritchie is a plain eater, bo Nolan
will have no trouble with him
In this regard.
Ritchie will train in Marln
county, Cal., across the bay from
here, where the weather is warm
er and the roads are better.

14 YEAR OLD BOY PICKED
FOR CHAMP BILLIARDIST
WALTER COCHRAN, BOY
BILLIARD MARVEL.
(By Vnited Press leased Wire.)
CHICAGO, Nov. 18.—The title
of champion billiard player of
the world may soon rest on the
head of a 14-year-old boy about
as big as a cue.
He is Walter Cochran, who
haila from lowa, and is now
rounding into a world beater In
Chicago, under the instruction or
. W. Perkins.
"Prof." Perkins is the man
who coached Calvi* Domareßt
and any number of high-class
oilliaidists, and he declares that
not only is young Cochran the
most promising pupil he ever
had, in his 5 years' experience,
but that the boy will be greater
than the late Wizard Schaeffer.
If you understand billiard lan
JU?CH¥S £r£jIMOOWS
The dictionary, one can find by
reading it through carefully, con
tains many quaint things, in oth
er sections than that headed
"Q."
For example:
One is pleased to learn that
Billingsgate is a "place in Lon
don noted for its fish and foul
language."
And then again:
One is glad to have such a clear
and convincing explanation that
"several" is "more than one or
two and not many."
One wonders why Mr. Web
ster's book Isn't one of the six
best sellers.
The various small and novel
tasks connected with the adjust
ment of a brand new flat had
been successfully accomplished
by the husband-to-be without any
difficulty. He was just getting
ready to give a varsity cheer for
himself when the matter of the
dressing table and the chiffonier
came up for consideration.
In transportation the mirrors
had been removed lrom these two
articles. The wife-to-be, who was
superintending the flat adjust
ment,- suggested they be re
placed.
The H-2B was brave. He care
fully adjusted the mirror sup
ports to the dressing table, and
then prepared to fasten the mir
ror.
But something seemed wrong
wi{h the mirror—or the supports.
The mirror seemed about three
Inches too wide for the supports.
The H-2B was of the opinion the
supports had shrunk. He didn't
say so. He Just pulled away, try
ing to stretch them bo the mirror
could fit in. For a long time he
struggled in silence. Then he
beard the bride-to-be's voice.
"I think," William," she was
guage, consider this latest feat
of the boy wonder: He averaged
5 5-35 in a Class A 18.2 inch
balk line tournament, to the
amazement of Chicago experts.
Ho continues to amaze those
san'o experts by the jkill he
shows in his daily practice at
Mussey's rooms, whero Perkins
holds forth as teacher.
He had no scientific knowledge
of the game when he went to
I'erKiiis. That made it easier for
his teacher, for there wasn't any
thing to forget. He quirkiy
grasped the fundamentals, learn
ing the 20 elementary shots and
their numberless variations, de
veloping his natural delicacy of
touch and revealing an instinctive
perception of the game's mys
teries that delighted tne veterans.
The best thing of bis wonderful
that, in Bpite of his wonderful
gift, he is just a regular boy, un
spoiled by psaitie and admiration,
and having no bad habits.
HE DOKS NOT SMOKE
CIGARETS.
saying, "it would be better to put
on the mirror that was there be
fore. That chiffonier mirror
won't fit the dressing table."
It was a shame the B-2B had
to learn so early of her H-2B's
awful temper.
Vests will button up the front
this fall.
According to advanced styles
this season, nearly all of the mal
nifty trousers will have two legs.
The watch pocket will be in front
and the chewing tobacco behind.
The hats will be plain this year
and very few aigsattes or willow
plumes will be wbrn.
Silk hats will be worn by gen
tlemen who are trying to burst
into society; also by corn doctors
and undertakers.
Red flannel undershirts have
gone out of style among the more
particular dresßers, —Richmond

Mother was covering the old
pin cushion.
"If this old cushion could only
talk, what tales of joys and sor
rows it could tell. It was given
to me nearly 30 years ago. That
was while I was conducting a
dressmaking establishment. This
Is the second time It has been re
covered since I owned it. These
old pinß that I took out of the
bran filling may be older than my
oldest girl."
When she said this she pointed
to a pile of pins that she had
taken from inside the filling.
There were 137 pins and 16 nee
