THE TOUT AND THE BUSINESS MAN; OR NEVER TRY TO FLEECE A TOUT This is a story of a tout who induced a l,usiness man to bet on a race horse. The business man won the bet the tout in duced him to make, and then threw the tout down. Touts have no rights or repu tations. Business men whom they make win bets very often throw them down. Why not? It is business, and they are touts, says the St. Louis Republic. This tout induced the business man, who will be known here by the name of Ole Paulson, to bet on the race horse known as The Boer, at Delmar one day last summer. The tout knew O. G. Roche, who owned The Boer. He had inside in formation that the horse was fit and trying hard. He got Paulson down. Of course, the understanding in such cases is that which the tramp in "A Messenger From Mars" impresses upon the supercilious mil lionaire. "'Alves, partner, 'alves." In other words, Paulson was to bet a chunk and to split the winnings with the tout. Paulson went along and bet $ao. Then Tbe cut in and bet $soo more. He got $55o against his $aao. "Now," he chekled, sticking $700 worth of tickets in his pocketbook, "I will hold these out and show my frien.. the $ao ticket and split that with him. Here is where I save something lmse $aS." The race was run. The Boer won. "I am very glad," said the tout, who was a decent fellow of some standing and simply purveying his information. "\'e won a good bet." COURSING IS GAINING A FIRM FOOT HOLD BACK EAST; AN INCIDENT Says the Daily America: While the lawmakers of California are trying to stamp it out, coursing is getting a foot hold in the East. Not as a public sport, it is true, but it is now enjoyed by many of our best sportsmnn, and, in fact, there is a coursing club already in existence, to which all who are intcrested in grey hounds belong. On stated occasions the members meet and they enjoy seeing their dogs chase the hares, which are brought from Wichita, Wis., cspecially for the purpose. Those meets are now held on the big estates of Long Island, and are regular, scheduled features of the off day, Sunday. For the benefit of those not familiar with what the sport of coursing really is, a description of the Waterloo cup, the "blue ribbon" of the coursing world, will prove interesting. Two lithe, snaky dogs, held on leash and collar by one man, stooping behind a hurdle. A hare, driven quietly from be hind the hurdle, starts at sight of the dogs and man and goes off at full speed ahead till it gains 50o yards' law. A rush by man and dogs. The man stops, jerks opne the catch of the patent collars, and "brindle" and "black" stream after their prey. The judge, in red coat and hunts mnan's cap, gallops in puriuit. Brindle SHORT STORY OF THE LIFE OF JACK MUNROE By Robert Edgren. Jack Munroe, the miner from Butte, Mont., has become a prominent figure among the heavyweight fighters since the day he landed his bony fist on Champion Jim Jeffries' short ribs. MunrOa, if he succeeds in forcing his way into the front rank, will be a good representative heavyweight! He is nearly as big a man as the champion; shorter, but almost as heavy. lie weighs, in box ing costume, which does not count for a great lot in the weight line, about sis pounds. Jeffries himself weighs nearer the ajo mark. Munroe is a strong man. Jeffries got his muscular development by riveting boilers; Munroe got his by work ing in the copper mines, by tramping for hundreds of miles over the mountains on prospecting tours and by playing football for years on some of the best club teams In the country. Jack Munroe was born in Pennsylvania. His father was a sailor, short but stocky and strong. His mother was over six feet tall and powerful in proportion. Jack has four brothers, all over six feet, and all as strong as he is himself. His oldest brother is the giant of the family, and, incidentally, of Juneau, Alaska. Munroe went West while he was a youngster and grew up with the country. lie hunted bears and deer with his broth ers through the mountains. Now anl then he worked for a time in some mine, for the whole Munroe family is intercstcl In minining. Then Mlunroe went to 'Frisco, where by spending his time around the camps of the various big fighters who came there to train for bouts, he developed a'taste for the boxing game, and acquired a certain degree of cleverness with the gloves. Then he entered the Pacific coast chain pionships-amateur-and won by knocking out three heavyweight opponents. Mun roe, as champion of the amateur class, at TELEPHONE GIRLS OUT OF TROUBLES It was reported yesterday that the troubles of the telephone girls would be aired at the meeting of the Silver Bow Trades and Labor council last night, but when the meeting was held there was nothing done In regard to the mat ter. No new girls have been put to work since the meeting of the operators' union last week, and everything seems to be running along smoothly enough at pres ant. Word has been received that General Superintendent Murray of the Rocky Mountain Bell company is coming up from Salt Lake"tomorrow to have a talk with Dan McDonald of the American Labor union for the purpose of bringing about a satisfactory understanding between the company and the operators. "Ding my cowardly buttons I" said Paul son. "Would you believe it, I only bet $ n on -him. I have such bad luck lately that I have no nerve." The tout was disappointed, but horse. men get used to disappointments. lie smiled bitterly, bit his lip and said, "I amt sorry. I told you he was a good thing." "You are not half as sorry as I am." said Paulson. "Hold on a minute. Hlere is $15, your share of this ticket." The tout took it and said, "Thank you very much. I regret that you did not bet more." Paulson moved down the line and meet ing Charley, the clubhouse commissioner, gave him the $7oo worth of tickets to cash, lest the tout might see him cashing and tumble. Charley took the tickets. gt the money and meeting a friend went into the cafe to have a drink. lie sat down and remained some time. Paulson, mean while, began to get eager for his money. He asked a friend if he had seen Charley and told him why he wanted hint. 'The friend, being a wag, strung him along. "Gave him $7oo worth of tickets to cash." he said. "My dear Iboy, I saw him running across the infield 'now with his street clothes on. He never had that much money before. It is too to m that he has ducked with the coin." Paulson had forty fits. lie told him the story in excited tones, which gathmrced a crowd. reaches the hare a engtlt ahllead. 'Ihe hire turns sharp at light angles to Ilack, who turns it back to bri'ile. Brindle now turns it away iront black. folliws its cut turns it :aain 1still keeping close to it , drives it forward once or twice, i;t.I black shoots acro-s and kills. The crowd roars. The Judge shouts 'Brindle" for though black killed it was brindle that dii the most to assist to the death). The re spective trainers of the dogs rull to pick them up. The flagman waves white ii blindle was on the right side at the slip, red if he was on the left. The ciurs. is over, ao a.econds from the ntoment the dogs were slipped. Both Died of Heart Disease. One of the most sensational incident,; which ever happened to a contesting dog happened to Princess Dagmar, which won the cup in 1881. During the first course her opponent was seen to suddenly stop and apparently lie down, and on the off. cials reaching the spot they were ast4;l ished to find the hare stone dead also lying a few feet off, but with no mark of injury upon it. A subsequent post-mor temn examination of the bodies revealed the fact that both dog and hare had died from heart disease, brought on by over exertion. tracted a lot of attention on the coast. He decided to turn pro. and arranged a fight with Hank Griflin, the big black who was Jefl's first antagonist in the ring. Griffin was a clever boxer and a hard hitter. Hie cut Munroe all to pieces dur ing the o0 rounds of the fight, but he was unable to either knock himn out or tire him down. Griffin won the decision. Mun roe went back to Idaho, where he had some mining claims, and started to work ing for himself. Hut it was in Butte that the, miner achieved fame. lIe had gone back to min ing there to get what prospectors and miners in that country call a "grub stake" for another sojourn in Idaho. This time he could not play football as he had be come a professional athlete by fighting Grillin. JefTries came to town., meeting all comers. lie agreed to take on the former amateur champion. And right there Jeff made a mistake. lie thought he was picking out an easy mark. With out any extra training he went in to whip Munroe, the ragged miler, strong foot ball player and aggressive tboxer, in less thll;an four rouns. It was a task som what beyowl Jcltiries' strength at that tiime. Mlunroe's friends say that the miner put it all over the champion from start Io filish; that he put Jeffries oni his knects with a terrible blow over the heart, and that. when the gong ranll at the concln hion of the bout Jeff was far along th, road to defeat. The backers of the cha:m pion, on the other hand, claim that Jeltris considtratcly allowed Munroe to stay for a couple of rounds and then was unable to catch himt before the limit. They also say that Jeffries never dropped to his knees under the impact of the miner's list. lie that as it may, the referee gave Mlunroe the decision at the end of the fight, not merely a statement that lie had lasted to the limit-that would have been unnecessary-but a decision that lie had won over Jeffries. PLEADS NOT GUILTY E. E. Mathers' Case Set for April 8th By McClernan. E. E. Mathers, who is accused of having burned a barn in the suburbs of the city a few months ago, was arraigned in Judge McClernan's court this morning and pleaded not guilty. His trial was set for April 8, In McClernan's Court, In Department III of the district court this morning, Judge McClernan or dered the calling of a trial jury and an nounced that on Wedneuday he would act criminal cases for trial. "lie was your licensed commissioner, Mr. Celia," said Paulson. "You are re sponsible to me for the money. I hold you responsible for it." "How much was it?" asked Mr. Cella. "Seven hundred dollars," said l'aulson. "I bet $too with Barney Schreiber and $too with Virginia Carroll. Go ask them and look at their sheets if you do n ot lie lieve me. I bet $aoo on The Boer." "Then you are a liar," said a voice at his elbow, and the tout looked straight in his eye. Paulson changed more colors thani a chameleon working overtime. "Mr. Celia," said the tout. "you know me to be all right, even if I am broke, and have to get a man to bet for me once in a while. Now, this fellow promised, to bet $,oo for me on The Boer. After the race he told me in the presence of two friends that he had bet $2o. If he makes any trouble about this matter you can have t!he evidence of myself and my friend.."

London, March 3.- The remarkable case of thl Irish gol ornalments will soon come on for a hearing in the law courts. 'These relics were ploughed up in sonme land in western Ireland in R186 by a farm laborer and passing throulgh several hands, were sold to the British museum for .6oJo. All efforts to reclaim them for Ireland were unavailing, the authorities at Blooms. bury being precluded bIy statute from parting with any object once acquired. The government officials say the arti'les art treasure trove and therefore belong to the crown, but the trustees of the museum re ply that within the living memory, the sea has burst over the land on which the ob. jects were found and probably at the date to which they belonged the sea extended much further Inland. The relics Include a collar with orna ment of Celtic character in relief; a twisted collar of solid wire, two neck chains, a bowland and a model of a boat, with oars, SUAVE BOOK AGENT SAID TO BE THIEF A.
