"Chane-Wi OWie .~tHis ahie"' ,i Rh ISTIf` New York, May 1t4"Wb5P Packy Mehwisand knooked ait Pete West, ii first Optpne, two r tupdsqjght -e8 t s e rea v a , iýw w n I he bier a stokyrg, for a third of tU MA.cU, -o e daMlded to become º 1. O 1e boxer. The other night got $10,000 for bo to0 t.h.td with hatt Wells In MadoIn s.aure arden-41,000 a round, or' $ . minute. This was the largest ealkh guarnate the stockyards cham pion ever took down for a glove fight 'ahtd it lanreased his total w.Unlng, in the ring to more than t110,000. Ith tirn for exwhibitions on the various the. rltalt circuits Moarland aas earned -pougb to enable ilm to write a bcheck for *$00,000-the financial reward for bis victorious career as America's cleverest exponent of the manly art. Packy isn't near the end of his ring ca~lpaign, either, so he expects to rap another golden harvest in bouts with Wolbast, Welsh and Hugh Mehbean, the Australian lightweight champion, who will be here In June Mbder the management of Joe Woodmau.. To prove that all boxers are not spendthrifts It may be accepted as gospel that MoFarland doesn't get rid of money foolishly. In the first place he has no bid bhabits. He doesn't drink, smoke or shew, cures nothlng for the bright lights or gay companalons and believes in arising with the sun. He has built a fine home In Chicago, where his father and mother live in solid comfort and where he spepds his time when not engaged In fillin' ring and theatrlc l engagements. Althourh Packy is only $4 yearn old, he realises that he cannot keep on bosing forever and that it Is good business policy to make all the money possible before hather Time puts him out of the ring forever. "Boxing Is an easy'. way to get money." said the Chloago lightweight the other day. "and I am making hay while the sun shines. It s a natural sift and rve been lutkly enough to profit by it. Money mnans comfort. and comfort means' happiness, partou larly for the old folks at home. rd rather take good care of father and mother than do anything else I know of. There's nothing in dissipation and many poor fellows have failed to real ise this truth until too late. Healtth s wealth, particularly in my case, and I am very grateful. When I began to box I never dreamed that I could make enough money to be well fixed the rest of my life. But I persevered and luck always was with me. It pays to take care of one's physical condition." MeFarland is a devout Catholic. He goes to church regularly and is ex tremely y,harltable. In short, he is a model young man, who has done his share to elevate boxing in this coun try. When Paoky left the garden after) Whipping Wells he hurried beck to his quarters and seat out for a quart of' oo ream. As he slowly got aways with It. ,e remarked: "Thistr siay weakness, boys; It makes me feel hall" AS IT LOOKS Well, we're a long way trom the bot tom yet. Three errorless games In a string for Bslankenship's men. Rather poor, eh? a SamlohO pitched a grand ame. lNght different men made the eight hits he allowed. Charlre Oaefer appears to be going well for Salt Lake, as has been re tharked before. Jachs, working for Ogden, got a hit. Also, he had another one or two some time before this year. Warren,. Zamloch and Roberts broke Into the stolen-base column yesterday. The Skipper was a thief twice. The OgdenlButte games are featured by plenty of hitting anyhow. The win. nina team usually collects" 15 satfe swati or better. Yesterday the Highlanders made it tpr4e and two with the Saints. A split today Is all we need to take the long end of the srlnes. Why is the Miner's sportwriter so unkind as to intimate that our Peer les Le bder is over 'the limit? Just because we are on to at present?

The9e's noth Ing like stiekilis up' for the home folks, but betting on the Highlanders to win two In one afternoon is the most sublime sort of faith. The two teams have been battling head and bead all week. with every game a aloes one. 6alt Lake and Wslesoula are evently matched. although we can see a shade for Blankenshlp's crew.

The crowd of 30,000 persons took the game as a joke. At the end of the third inning there was a rush by a couple of thousand of bleacherites, who de manded,their money back.

Ira Courtney, Beattle Athletic club, tied the Olympiad record of 10 4-5 in the 100-meters dash. Wonderful Jump. Horine's wonderful running~, lfl0 jump of 5, feet, 7 inches flat was un doubtedly the most remarkable per formance of the day. But Samuel Bellah, though ayusally falling short of the world's record, pushed him hard. In the pole vault, after he had cleared 12 feet, 7, and cleared it with inches to spare, a new Olympic, but not a new world's recbrd, Bellah, em boldened by his success, moved the pegs to the 13-foot mark, and cleared it beautifully, but fouled it In con ing to earth.
