"I found out then that Fitz could not get away from me. ami I got in a couple of jroott stiff punches on him, one in the stomach and the other on the ear. I have not any excuses to offer for losing the flrht, but I still think that I will Fee the lay when I will show that I can whip him. "Fitz i3 not a fair fighter. Five minutes before I went into the ring I got a note from Johnny Carroll warning me absut Fitz. Carroll was the first man to bring Fitz out in this country and he knows all about hl3 methods. He told me to watch out that Fitz did not strike me with his wrist over the head; that he depended upon that trick to win. He wanted me to cau tion Referee Duffy to look out for a foul of that character. It Is an old trick, one frequently used in Australia, and I have been cautioned myself about using it. You can daze or tun a man with a blow with the wrist on the side of the head, where, if you punched with your fl.sts. you would not hurt him. You then have him started. Fitz worked this blow on me in the last part of the first round. I had hooked onto hl.s Jaw with my right, knock? .g him back against the ropes. He retvm.r ied from them and dealt me the blow lth his right wrist across the head. It a as as !f I had been hit with a club. I was stunned, but the crowd, which had not observed the blow, were cheering me for the rush I had male at Fitz and the noise revived me. Fitz is a hard hitter, but he was never able to use his right on me until I was all but gone. "When I stood dazed and stunned with my Kuard down, he had to hit me six times to get in a knock-out blow. Just now all I want to do U to get on a fight with a middle-weight and redeem my reputation. I'm good for a good number of years yet as a fighter, and if any of these middle-weights think I'm a mark I'll give them an oppor tunity to show it." Fought Twenty-Three Hounds. ' SPRINGFIELD, 111..

Com munication with south Florida s being re stored, and special dispatches are pouring In relating to the damage done by the West Indian hurricane, which raged In the State Tuesday and Wednesday. The dis patches all tell the same story of houses wrecked and crops destroyed, but no 'loss of life is reported. At Tampa several large cigar factories were wrecked. The large three-story brick factory of S. Seidenberg & Co. was destroyed. The factory of C. A. Joyce was demolished, as were also the factories of Yebor 4c Manarara, Theodore Perez & Co. and O'Halloran. The First Presbyterian Church and the Talatial Ho tel, Tampa bay. were badly demolished. The total loss on buildings at Tampa Is estimated at $50,000. Communication with Fernandina was also restored to-day. The schooner Edward Stewart, which was loaded and lying at anchor, was blown across the river, pulling her anchors with her, and is now lying on a mud flat In about five feet of water. Dur ing the storm at Fernandina the British steamship Boston City and the Elmville collided and were badly damaged. The steamer Princess was sunk between Pa- latka and 'Flckata. She was valued at $12, 000. The steamer Edith was driven ashore. The steamer Debarey was driven against the drav bridge and wrecked. The stearn yacht Maud was sunk near Crescent City. At St. Augustine no lives were lost, but several houses were wrecked, and the losses will run into the thousands. Nearly all the 1 windows in the city were blown in and the houses flooded with water. The Ponce De Leon Hotel was damaced in this "way. The losa on the hotel's furniture is heavy. The waves clashed over the sea wall and made rivers of the streets. Many wharves were blown away. Between Green Cove Spring and Palatka, on the St. Johns, twelve wharves have dis appeared. Between Jacksonville and St. Ausrustine not a telegraph pole was left standing. The da'mage to the orange grow ers is incalculable. In the large groves the ground is completely covered with green oranges. The loss is fully 20 jer cent. The eatft coast is still cut off from com munication below St. Augustine and Palat ka, though communication may be restored to-night. Every effort is being made to hear from Jupiter and Key West, which are sup posed to have "been in the storm's center. The storm was as severe in tiie interior of the State as on the coast. It struck Tampa and then traveled northeast toward Jack sonville and St. Augustine. At Oala and Orlando. Interior points, seve.ul eels were found after the storm passed. It is safe to say that the storm has cost Florida more than $1,000,000, but no lives have been lost, unless at Key West, Titusville, Jupiter and other east coast points. Gale at Atlantic City. ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Sept. 2S. Heavy gales are raging along the coast to-night and the storm Is increasing- In violence.

"Did the President authorize the present proceedings in this court?" asked Mr. Ir win. "I will say." said Mr. Walker, "in an swer to the question of counsel, yes.

Tha meeting was held in a new school hous several miles from the city, and the building was inadequate to hold all who came. A number drove, down to Stock well from this city, and were well repaid for the trip. Mr; Posey is one of the most lluent talkers who ever spoke In the coun ty. After listening to his speech at Stock well many of tho&e who accompanied him from this city expressed regret that he had not been billed for the city. Much credit for the success of the Stockwell meeting is due to committeeman John Rob erts, of that place. The meeting was pre sided over by George P.

Mrs. Adams Encounters a I in Hi an in Her Home. The attention of the police last night was called to a story of a mystery. A man named Adams, residing at the corner of Twenty-sixth street and Central avenue, reported the facts to the police. He said that he left his home shortly after dinner yesterday afternoon. At the time of his departure his wife was lying upon a sofa in one of the front rooms. Adams says he returned in the evening and found his wife tied to a bedpost. The told him that soon after he left the house she arose frdm the sofa and went into a rear room. Here she encountered a strange nlan. Before she could scream or give any aiarm she was struck a blow upon the head bv the ruffian and rendered unconscious. She re membered nothing after that. She has no recollection of being tied to the bedpost, and does not know how long she had re mained there. From her statements as to the time when she rose from the sofa and went into tire back part of the house, however, it is evi dent that she had been there for several hours. The interval between the time when she first saw the man and when she was struck upon the head was so short that she could not given any definite descrip tion of him. For the Conscience Fund.

How Traveler Suffer for "Water The Air Very Dry. " San Diego Letter in New York Times. The United States international boundary commission ha 3 arrived here, and is com pleting the work of establishing 258 monu ments marking the line between Mexico and the United States, from El Paso to the Pacific ocean, a distance of about seven hundred miles. The commissioners are Col. Barlow. United States army; Lieutenant Gaillard.. United States army, and Mr. Mossman, of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey. Their staff of engineers, soldiers and laborers numbers about eighty. For two years and a half this party has been in the field erecting the monuments and resurveying the boundary line, which was originally established by Commissioner Emerey from 1&49 to 1S53. The fifty-two monuments then erected have been supplemented by 200 more, which are, for the most part, plain iron shafts on rock and cement foundations. By agreement with Mexico any errors discovered in the original survey by the present commission shall not be corrected, so far as ownership of territory is concerned. Pew errors have been found in the survey. The largest was along the New Mexico boundary, whereby Unce Sam gains forty square, miles of land, which the lew survey shows to be in Mexico. Much of the trip of the commission was through Arizona deserts. At times It cost 25 cents a gallon for water needed at certain remote points by a small party of men and horses. To get horses there at all required four water tanks holding 400 gallons each, and drawn by four mules. The water in three tanks was exhausted, and the tank sent back to the main camp, in order to get the fourth tank to the point where observations were sought. The supply in this tank was sufficient to maintain several men and four mules until the return to camp. The water question Is one of seri ous importance on the desert. Thousands have perished along the boundary line of thirst. v During a inarch of seventy-five miles on one des?rt the surveyors counted 350 graves along the trail of the victims of thirst. At one point a family "of eight was buried. These foolish people earned their water supply in large demlj . The bottles were broken. The precious was swallowed by the sand. Mother. her and children lay down beneath a im ito bush and died the most horrible of deaths. The bodies, broken water bottles and dead horses were found Just as they fell. It is the custom on the desert to bury all bodies and mark the graves with crosses of stone imbedded in the sand. Curiously enough, the few an imals In the desert appear to exist without any regular water supply. Coyotes, ante lope and gophers have been seen eating the pear of the prickly cactus. This fruit Is full of minute spines. These little horns ?re painful. It is wonderful, therefore, how these animals with delicate tongues can eat the fruit. From In much moisture is ob tained. The air on the desert being intensely dry, causes rapid evaporation from the body. Observation proved that nine quarts of water daily was needed by one man to prevent the blood from thickening and becoming feverish. Each mule re quired twenty gallons dally. One surveyor was without water for several hours. He became feverish and ligrt-headini. Iack of water for a few hours longer would have killed him. This was in a shade, temper ature Jf 120 degrees, where the air was al most absolutely dry, so dry that fresh meat, instead of putrefying, simply, dries up. At one place the surveyors found the bodies of three prospectors within a hun dred feet of a natural water tank formed in the rocks. To get to this water the poor fellows had to climb upward twenty feet or so. Their strength was exhausted. They had been too long without water. And here, with the llfegivlng lluld Just a few feet beyond them, they died. Thirst on the desert is horrible. The victim first feels . pain between the shoulders. The tongue-thickens and feels filled with needle points. The eyes becurne painful, and finally any movement of the body causes excruciating pain. As the blood thickens the brain gives way and the- victim Is a raving maniac. Death soon ends the suf fering. Death In sandstorms is one of the dangers of the desert. The surveyors were once nearly killed by suffocation during such a storm. For half an hour they watched the black cloud approach. The camp was made ready. The wave of wind and dust broke over It with much violence. The air was literally filled with Pne dust. The men be gan to suffocate. An officer ordered them ta breathe through their handkerchiefs. Thus they were able to get barely enough air to sustain life. Without the handkerchiefs the noses and mouths of the men became cake.I with dust, and they gasped for breath. The fury of the storm passed in fifteen min utes, but at 3 o'clock in the afternoon the camp was enveloped, in as pitchy darknesa as at midnight. Even veteran officers thought the whole outfit was doomed. They marvel now that they escaped alive. The exact position of ttv? mounment marking the extreme southwestern boun dary po'nt between the United States and Mexico is latitude 32 degrees 32 minutes and 00:61 seconds north, longitude, 117 de grees, 7 minutes and 32.G89 seconds west of Greenwich. It is of Italian granite, and was brought around Cape Horn and erected in 1S51. HE SAW A GREAT LIGHT. The Gentleman Befriended Two Pret ty ;irln und YVrjt Left. Buffalo Express. A man had occasion to go to the Union Depot yesterday afternoon to meet his wife. When he had get to the station he found his train was half an hour late, and he bought a paper and sat down. Not long after he had seated hlmsGf a rather pretty girl, who wore a pink waist and had nice, red cheeks and clear blue eyes, who looked to be not over seventeen, came and sat down next to him. The man who was waiting for his wife took a casual look at the girl and went back to his pa per. VrtAy soon another pretty young girl, who also wore a pink waist and had blue eyes and a fresh complexion and all that sort of thing, came alcna: and stooped In. front of the first sirl. Tne second pretty girl looked as If she wanted to cry. She said, with a tremulous voice: "Why. Net tie, what do you think? The fare's a dol lar." "A what?" gasped Nettie. "A dollar: and she told us it was onlv 10 cents; and I haven't . got enough to get the tickets: and. oh dear, I don't know what we will do." She sank down beside Nettle and the two looked at the til floor with very solemn faces. Presently Nc-tti:? looked up end said: "I'll take a walk around the room. lVr hapa there 13 somebody here I know." She made the tour of the room and cam 3 back with her face gloomier than in-fore.

Her GeneroMlty and Coitkclentions nen Were the Lending: Cuumch. New York Times. Mme. Fursch-Madi, the famous opera singer, died in poverty. Her last days wer spent in a small, lonely cottage at Platn lield, N. J. So great was her poverty that her body will rest in an unmarked grava unless her former friends and pupils come forward and assist her little daughter, whg has temporarily been taken in charge by one of Fursch-Madi's former pupile, Mrs. Keyne, nee Attila Claire. Those who were at the funeral on Sat urday at the Catholic Church in Plainfield noted that the body, which was greatly emaciated, was placed in a cloth-covered coffin, and that an old-fashioned hearEs conveyed it to the grave. Only a few per sons were in the funeral procession, and when the hearse reached the church only three of the mourners could le found to act as pall bearers, and so the undertaker asked some men who were standing near to act. - In the "church itself there was no choir, and a clerk from a neighboring grocery was secured to make the responses. After the services, the remains were taken to th Catholic cemetery, two miles away. and. were buried In a comer. What did Fursrh-Madi do with all the money she inde during her brilliant career, was the question asked by many yesterday. The answer generally given by her friend. was that she was overliberal. and besides spent a great deal of money, not knowing the value of it." And yet had several former pupils who have never paid her come to her assistance Fursch-Madi's last hours might have been passed in comfort, and, perhaps, , pome money might have been left for her little daughter Jeanne. About the end of last year she suddenly disappeared from this city, and one of her pupils made search for her and found her at Plainfield. She told her pupil that she was compelled to leave the city, as her health was breaking down, and she needed rest and quiet. She lud bought a farm of about sixty acres near the home of her oli friend. Vic tor Clauiio. and hart settled there wi'th her husband, her son Emil by her first hus band and her daughler Jeinne by her sec ond husband. Mr. Wurtz. Sh secured b'.x. pupils in Plainfield. but would not adver tise, and thrice a week she drove out to Plainfield and gave lessons. The greatest favorite among her former pupils was Mrs. Keyne, nee Atti'.a Claire, and she had refused to take any money from her until she should be able to pay her out of her earnings as a singer, wh?n she stipulated that M.ss Claire should pay her 10 per cent, of her salary uniil the bill was paid. Whwt Miss Claire got an engagement at 30 a week, in London, she offrl to pay Fursch-Madl 6 a week, but Fursch-M.tdi refused to take it because she s.Ud that Miss Claire had gone Into light oiwra. When Miss Claire minted Furch-Madi finally consented to take her pay. When Fursch-Madl went outfof the city he wrote to Mrs. Keyne anl to her moth er. Mrs. Smith, but the letter was mislail and the adire. was forgotten. Lately a friend wrote to Mrs. Keyne and Mrs. Smith that Fursch-Madi was ick and emaciated. but before they were able to go 10 her she was dead. They' hurf.ed to tne place and assisted at the funeral. Fursch-Madi, before her death, made the Rev. Frederick Treteau, of the French Catholic Church of St. Jean Baptist, In East Seventy-sixth street, guardian of her fourteen-year-old daughter Jeanne. But as that gentleman was riot able to be there in time. Mrs. Keyne and Mrs. Smith tool: th child home with them and paid tne under taker's bill. They will hold the girl sub ject to the orders of Father Treteau. Mrs. Smith said last evening that any one who asked Furseh-Madi for money never failec to get at least a flve-doilar bill. She never, would take a pupil whom she judged would not make a successful slncer, and she frankly told her. Mrs. Smith often told her that she was unwise, and if a girl was willing to pay her tuition and graduate under her. she ought to take her. But Fursch-Madi would not listen. "If all the old pupils who have Kradu ated under Fursch-Madi." Kill Mrs. Smith, "would now come forward and pay their debts, there would be some money to sup port poor little Jeanne and pay her tui tion."
