ILLINOIS GAME NOTES.
Gophers are said to ' be unusually
numerous in central Illinois this sea
son. In some sections (hey are dam
aging the corn, while in Ogle county
some of the farmers have delayed
planting the seed until they could ex
terminate the animals . from their
fields. Anton Piper, one of the pio
neer farmers of Ogle county, poisoned
the gophers by the hundreds, soaking
corn in arsenic and leaving it In the
vicinity of their burrows. Farmers
say that the gophers eat the tender
blades of corn and are a greater pest
than the crow.
Hook and line fishing is now at its
height in Illinois and the sport is re
ported to be excellent, except where
heavy rains have raised the rivers and
creeks. A small section of central
Illinois was visited with an unusually
heavy rain during the last week and
the resultant high water In the fishing
streams has forced a postponement of
fishing. In other sections, however,

IN PERFECT FORM
Willie Ritchie training for White
Milwaukee, Wis., May 26. The Char
ley White-Willie Ritchie fight, to bs
held at Milwaukee tonight, will bring
the present boxing season to a close
with many interested fight fans look
ing on. This lightweight battle is at
tracting unusual notice, not only be
cause it is perhaps the last importaitf
contest of the season, but for the rea
son that the participants are regarded
by many as being unusually well
matched. A fast and warm argument
Charley White la undoubtedly one of
the fastest and cleverest of his class
and well fit to enter into a title dispute
with the champ. In the past year or
two he has piled up a remarkable rec
ord and has fought his way up to a
challenge for the belt after many had
regarded htm as an indifferent second
rater. Since his defeat in his fight
with Jack Britton, something over a
year ago, ihe has acquired quite a hit
in weight and certainly a great deal
in speed and cleverness.
White enters the ring with a very
slight disadvantage in the matter of
weight. Ritchie Insists on his 135
pounds, and White will make 133. It
is pointed out by Ritchie backers that
the champ is stronger than his ad
versary, but the White adherents
come back with glowing accounts of
Charley's rapid-fire left and his right
cross, in both of which he ha3 a bulge
on Ritchie. It is generally thought
that this evens matters up quite a bit
and as regards aggressiveness, the
wallop and all round boxing ability and
generalship, both boys will meet on
even terms. The host of backers that
Charley White now musters tells bet
ter than anything else of his wonder
ful Improvement and the maturity of
his fighting ability.

In preparation for the fight Ritchie
some weeks ago took up golf. He says
golf is the best thing in the world to
put a fighter in trim.
