By Robert Edgrcn. Ti$hUn& with the Uhts In generally supposed to havo originated with Greeks, but recent discoveries of carved figures In boxing position have Mwiu that, the art of fisticuffs was known to tho ansient Assyrians Ions before tho Greeks appeared in history, lining tho bands in combat being a "Mtnral thing. It is likely that boxing was known to other civilizations tfceus&adB of years before even tho anclont Assyrian. la England, where fisticuffs wa h goae on for many ccnturlos.

General D'Yorl:, &c, &c, 0." Apparently tbe first fighter who made a fortune out of boxing was "Tom Johnson, who after contending fsr the championship of England, In about sixteen fights, retired and be came respectable having by his ex traordinary success realized the as tonishing sum of nearly flvo thousand pounds." I like that "retired and became re spectable"! Unfortunately Tom Johnson didn't toy "respectable." Having squan dered his fortune he had to fight acr&ln, ana being old and soft was "beat almost lifeless," and shortly af terward died "from the severe blows he had received." Fighting was a tough gome In those days. The toughest of tho old tlmo fights were between English and Irish champions. One of theso went 125 rounds, and both Purccll, the Eng lishman, and McCarty, from Ireland, were beaten out of resemblance to anything human, each in turn being "caught In chancery" and hammered Into a state of collapse only to bo re vived in the half mlnuto Intervals by brandy administered by their seconds. In tho 125th round tho Irishman rose from his second's knee and mut tered "I won't fight any more." The Englishman, unable to see but strlk lng at the sound of tho voice, landed the last blow. A came Irishman was Ned Lan- gan, who won a ecoro of fights Ix-forc he met Tom Spring for the British championship. Spring was ,v much bigger man than Iangan, who scaled 16$ pounds. Spring broke both his hands, but in the seventy-six rounds Spring either knocked or throw Lan can down about sixty times, often falling on hint as ho foil. This was nor nf trie, irnmn under tho old rules Lang&n was knocked out, but mado , m appreciation or mo gnmeness . which was very generous conduct toward a loser In those days.

Jackson knocked Mendoza out in the ninth round, In ten and a halt minutes of fighting. There were several treat Jewish fighters in the old days in England. Tho best of theso wcro Daniel Men doza (one of whoso descendants has a tailor shop near tho Brooklyn Bridce In New York to-day); Dutch Bam, Barney Aaron and Abraham Bclaaco. They were all noted for their skill. Dutch Sam (Ellas Samuel) wolghed only 130 pounds, yet ho won a hun dred fights against men of all wolghts. iicttlng away from tho ancients. we'll come down to a bit more mod ern times when John C. Hcenan, the Bcnlcla Hoy, champion of America. went to England to fight Tom Sayers lor the world o heavyweight cham pionship. Tom Sayers, heavyweight champion of England, waa on extremely clever boxer and only n, middleweight, like Charlie Mitchell, who afterward fought Sullivan. Ho fought for eleven years. His longest battle was 103 rounds with Harry I'oulson, and ho lost only one fight, early In his career, when Nat Langham beat htm In 61 rounds. Tho English idolized Sayers and thought him Invincible. HERMAN -SAYERS BOUT FIRST INTERNATIONAL FIGHT, John C. Heenan was bcrn In Troy in 1535. His height was 6 feet 2 inches and his weight 190 pounds. He was a great boxer. In I860 ho challenged sayers ana went to England to flrht. This was the first International ring battlo to attract wide attention. The men met In a hastily roped ring In a piece of woods near Farms borough, Encland, before a great crowd that followed the fighters In carriages, cars or on foot to the rcn dezvous. Sayers used all of his skill and Keenan pressed the fight deliberately. It lasted two hours and twenty min utes forty-two rounds at the end of which tlmo Sayers was badly beaten and entirely exhausted and on the point of being knocked out. The Americans accompanying Hee nan had wagered heavily on him to win, and rather than see their man knocked out and lose their bets, Eng liBh roughs around tho ring pulled up tho stakes and tore the ropes down. stopping tho fight. Heenan was roughly handled by tho crowd. SULLIVAN INTRODUCES GLOVE- FIGHTING. Tho refcrco next day decided that the light was a "draw," thus saving the wagers on the English champion The English hportsmen who con ducted it decided that tho world's championship belt should bo given to Sayers, and an exact duplicate of It presented to tho American, However, Hcenan'a belt never materialized. Ho had to return homo without It. This was about tho same treatment Jake Kllraln received later when ho fought nnd whipped English Cham pion Jem Smith In Belgium, tho ring being pulled down to savo Smith ftom a knockout. Tho last world's champion undr London prlzo ring rules waa John I. Sullivan, the greatest of them oil. It was wliei. John li. decided to introduce fighting with padded gloves instead of tore fists that a new era dawned In boxing, and Queennborry rules sup planted tho crudo brutalities of Lon don prize ring days.

K., BUT NOT STRENUOUS ONES, SAYS RESEARCH PRESIDENT H Many Sports Are Beneficial to Them, Says Daniel Chase, but Others in Which They Participate Now Arc More. Harmful Than Many Suppose. By Joseph Gordon. , rr rOMEN are going in for athletics too strenuously. The danger of women's athletic activities docs not lie in tbe fact that It Is " under-developed, as stated by cortaln exploiters of amateur sports. Tbe fact is that It la being over-dovolopcd and to such an extent that its over-development threatens Its existence., Tbe Idea of girls com peting In hammer throwing, hurdle Jumping, distance running and other sports which require a great deal of physical endurance is a hindrance to tho physical development of women." The abovo statement was made yes-1 terday at tho opening address at the Sixteenth Annual Convention of the Athletic Research Society by Its new ly elected President, Daniel Chose. In a statement given by Mr. Chase to The Evening World he said ho was not opposed to women's athletics. In fact ho was In favor of them, pro vided that tho health of the athletes was considered and that as far as possible tho standing of women's ac tivities was put In charge of women directors and coaches. "Many spoils are beneficial in tho development of women, but a great many In which they participate now are more harmful than many sup pose," said Mr. Chawo. "Take for Instance basketball games played by girls under rules meant for boys. In Itself basketball Is a lino game for girls all throwing games arc. Hut the rules under which most of tlw games are played make them too strenuous for girls. Rules, taking this fact Into consider ation, should bo mado so that girls may play without any fear of injury. "Another great sport I am in favor of is swimming. Girls can excel In that branch of sport without Injury. It Is not no much a matter of endur ance, except long dUtance rnoes, and It helps develop girls and women.

I am a great bo licver In games for schoolgirls which will be of bqneQt to them. It is next to impossible to maintain golf courses at the average school, but It is pos sible to give elementary Instruction in golf, and occasionally, If there la an opportunity, to take them out to a course for a practical lesson." Asked If ho was In favor of sending teams to compete In tho events for women at tho Olympic games, Mr. Chase replied: "I am In favor of sending over teams to compete in all events which nro not too strenuous for girls. There are sprints, runs, swimming sprints and other swimming events. Then there Is basketball. If tho rules are not liko thoso under which most of oui presont games are played. But I am opposed to their competing in ham mer throws, high hurdle Jumps, long dlstanco races and other enduranco tests." Mr. Choso spoko encouragingly jf tho future of women's athletics, and cited tho progress mado In New York Stato In tho last three years. In al most every school which reports there has been progress, especially among tho glrlu of tho Junior section, seventh and eighth grades, and In tho first-year high school.

This elevator is only a platform no id, no top. Tho operator told me later that he had taken the young man aboard at the fifth floor.
