JEFF IN TRAINING
(Continued From Seventh Page.) to be exact, more roughly treated. Every muscle that was brought Into piay in rubbed and massaged, aud when Jeff is allowed to call off the work for the day bis skin glistens like satin and his muscles are so pli? able and supple that their every play can be seen beneath the glowing skin. The day has beeu a busy one and day tramping through the rough de? files of the mountains are just as beneficial aa a day in the gymna? sium. Alter a long argutueut Jeff is led Lack to camp like a spoiled .sulky child, aud his daily routine is taken up. Just at present tbe most difficult obstacle his trainers have to over? come is the ftuding of men who cau stand up before Jeff's heavy punches, should a man without an iron linbOtl aids the Big Fellow wouder tutlon attempt to duplicate Jeff stunts he would collapse. A light supper follows, and then the evening belongs to the Big Fellow to do with as he pleases. More often than not a horseback or an automo? bile ride follows, but by 10 o'clock at the latest, taps are sounded camp and Jeff is sent to hunt the bay The training of Jeffries is a serious proposition. For a man who has been cut of the ring as long as the for? mer champion it is a gigantic task to again around himself into form. There were many pounds of fatty tissue that had to be gotten rid of. In doing this due care had to be exercised to avoid impairing th Big Chap's general health. His mind had to be kept oc cupled, and then, too, great care had to he taken so that his temper was unruffled. Right here it might be stated that Jeff has a temper of his rara, and as the early stages of his training progressed this was the most tenons problem his trainers were confronted with. Jeff was prone to sulk, and when these fits possessed him his work ruffered. Only by rare diplomacy could he be brought around to a nor? mal state of mind and health, and then bit by bit work was added to his daily routine. By a peculiar con dltion ot affairs Jeff invariably re belled whenever he was called on to work a little bit harder than he had done the day before. At first he want ed to plunge into the thick of his training and take on work at the start that should only be gone through with in the closing weeks of his pre? parations for the mill. His trainers were olten hard pres? sed to keep him away from work, just as much so as they are now to keep him up to it. Frequently when the trainers seek the Big Fellow in the morning they find he has risen before day and, mounting his favorite horse, started off with his rifle for a few pot shots at game. Then follows a scramble to lind him and bring him back to camp. Searching parties start in all directions and it is in? variably the crack of the Big Fellow's rifle that proves his undoing. Jeff always puts forth the excuse that a fully In the art of boxing, for there I? none better in the world today, but he can't stand the milling tils' must be gone through In the closing days or Jeffs training. What is being done sow is but child's play, as comparec with what will come in the last fort? night or training. Then men must be produced who can stand toe to toe with the ex-Champion and swap blows until one or the other cries quits. The lighter work will be abandoned, or just enough of it gone through with daily to keep Jeff's muscles supple and pliable. But men must be found who can give punishment as well as take It, for Jeff can hit like a sledge hammer and as the day for the fight draws nearer, just that more steam is injected into his punches. The long wrangle that ensued orst the selection of a referee did not im prove Jeff's temper. He took the stand that Johnson was trying to dictate terms, simply because he holds the title oi champion?a title won from a light heavy-weight at that. The names of several men were proposed for i he post of the third man in the ring, which should have been just as accep? table to Johnson as to him. But John was crafty to realize that Jeff was chafing under his dictation of terms, and he dictated to his heart's content. While big sums were awarded Jeff ??nd Johnson by the club pulling off the fight for their training expenses, hese sums will fall far short of foot ng the total bills. To offset these shortages, both principals to the fight >re charging admission to their gym? nasiums for the afternoon mills, and many dollars are added to their gen? eral funds In this way. Few after? noons elapse but that several hun? dred fight fans journey out to the re? spective camps to see the big heavies work. Of course these crowds will lay! rease in volume as the day for the light draws nearer, for then the East? ern contigent will have reached the Coast and all will be eager for a glimpse of their favorite before be steps into the ring. It will be a great fight and if hard and conscientious work counts. Jeff will be fit for the fight of his life. Something About Costa Rica (Continued From Seventh Page.? way to football and baseball, and even the old Spanish style of courting is a thing of the past. Girls and their sweethearts are frequently seen walk? ing together without tbe company of a third party?something unknown be? t?re the Americans settled there. Costa Rica still retains the old "entrance tax." This means that the traveler must i?ay two cents per pound on all baggage brought into the coun try. The nation is practically without a navy, while her army at present num? bers leas than 1,000 men. There is little need for a military, as the peo? ple are satisfied with the government and a revolution Is a thing unthought of, and as the little republic has had Be claim made against her for more than T,0 years, there is not much like? lihood of a foreign foe. The majority of the soldiers come from the rural districts and are usually from the poorer class. Many of them are of Indian descent and have little educa? tion, although tbe schools are free and education in a certain sense com? pulsory. The soldiers, however, are loth patriotic and brave and obey to .1 may be obtained, for it Is really the only place where one may see both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The town itself has an altitude or 5,000 reet. The public squares are well kept, and one of them contains an at? tractive monument of the first presi? dent of the Republic. There is an at? tempt at street paving, but the high? ways were for the most part ill kept. The "zerpolotes" (buzzards), were the scavengers and were very tame, as there was a strict law against killing them. Aiter the earthquake they hovered above the city, attracted by the dead. This same thing occurred just aiter the earthquake in Kings? town, and the sight or that great swarm or black birds with their blood red combs, hovering over the stricken city is one or tbe horrible memories of that disaster. As Cartago was the supply station for the surrounding country, there were some very good stores and a large covered market place. The houses are built low on account or the frequent quakes, and many of them were stone or adobe. It will take weeks, and perhaps, month;, to get the bodies of the poor crea tures who were caught under these massive walls. There were few al the letter.
