mock on the pleasant veranda, the muffled
roar of the surf falls upon his drowsy ears like
the applause of thousands, and he half fancies
that he Is stepping into the ring to meet the
strong boy. This illusion Is usually dlssl-
Sated by the voice of his trainer requesting
Im to join In a little spin down the road for
the purpose of getting up an appetite. Then
he awakes to a realization ot the fact that time
has not been called for tho chlet evont ot his
pugtllstlo career, and patiently resumes the
routine o! his preparatory work.
The cottage which Corbott occupies Is about
a mile from Asbury Fark. It Is a neat build
ing, with a opaclous veranda running around
the front. It Is the property ot V. U. Brady,
Corbett's manager, and In addition to Brady
and Corbett there are Ililly Uelaney. who has
trained the Callfornlan for all his bnttles; Jlra
Daly, Corbott's sparring partner; Dennis Dil
lon, a Callfornlan, who assists In the training,
and a number of servants. As a place of
preparation for a physical contett Corbett's
location Is unsurpassed.
The barn In which his Indoor work Is done Is
fitted up like a gymnasium. First is the inev
itable punching bag. and the ono whloh he
uses Is unique. It Is a pear-shaped leather
bag. the stom end being attached to the sus-
fiensorr rope. Tho bag Is about twenty-four
nches long nnd three feet In circumference at
the thlskost part, near the bottom. It Is In
flated with air. The bag was 1m ented by Cor-

bett, and the one now In uso was presented to
him by the (llrmplc Athletlu Club of Ban Fran
cisco, Corbett claims superiority for the bag
by reason that a mtt Imru blow Is required to
send It to the celling, and It returns
with a velocity anil lorce which makes
it nocossarr for tho punchor to keep
on tho alert nnd brace hlniFoll. There

The branch of his training which gives him
the most vigorous exercise is. however, the
handball ourt..whlch adjoins the barn on the
ocean side. It is very well constructed, and
not only affords splendid exercise, but also
unlimited sport Corbett naturally docs not
indulge every day in all the features noted,
but varies thom. lie does all his In
door work in tho morning and walks
during the afternoon, which is direct
ly opposite to tho system emploved
by Sullivan, who walks in tho morning and
takes his gymnastic oxerclso In tho aftornoon.
The Callfornlan says that if he walked in tho
morning he would feel too tired to do much
work in the afternoon. Corbett has now been
training four weeks, the work being directed
toward strengthening tho arms, keeping tho
wind in good condition and maintaining a
(rood state ot health. He will not begin Ills
lard work until the 1st of August, when he
will put In four weeks of good, solid effort.

nrgued pro and con at great Inngth. Tho gen
oral opinion was Hint Corbett vat n lino fol
low, a strong and cloxor boi-r. and they would
like to see him win. but Hulllvnn's knook-out
record usually caused them to shako tholr
heads. Included in the throng that watched
tho pugilist at work were half a dozen ladles,
who took great interest In tho proceedings.
Ono fair onlookor exprmsod the opinion that
"Corbett did not look at all ferocious." and
sho "just hoped m would defeat hnlllvnn."
Corbett's Hrst work was with tho pullors,
and for hall nn hour he inndo them Rrjueuk,

"Didn't see anr." replied Daly. . .
Corbett Insisted thut Ihoru must be some

vealed four letters. He would not permit his

went to the extent ol having Daly read the
