There was a tone of sadness In the voice and Just a suspUdun of u tear In : Jimmy's eye as he frankly admitted! that he "couldn't tii?ht any more." Probably It was the feeling of melun- . choly that comes to the one-time great actor when he realizes that the plaud- ; its uf the public are no l.mner for him. . Probably he felt as does the old ma jor league baseball player when told by his management that he isn't fast: enough lo continue with the team, but ' must seek employment among the , minors. The fact that he received less money for his loser's end than as ever handed to him for engaging t 1 m the s- re- time, no one een fsitely pri.v that his .;;(. ''d Is nit .iL.-e'utely clean. He haH sl'dred all protits with his brother Willis, who managed him while he was lighting, only recently In- made his father and mother a present of a 15.000 summer-home not far from this city. Out of the ring llritt was a credit to the "profession." He was a model f correct dress and a stickler for spotless linen. Hard study made him u brilliant conversationalist and a fel low with opinions of his own. An occasional fondness for the sparkling Juice of the grape, with automobiles and other accessories, probably ac counts for his retiring from the" ring while he is not yet 3o years old.

Tommy Burns, the champion fight er, has written a book, which he has had published in Kngland pretty quick work for a man who so re cently reached the tup of the pugilis tic ladder. Tommy gets off s un.; pretty good things. He says: "I have been styled a 'third-rate chuiupiun," and may possibly be such; but if that is a fact then all the ther boxers knocking about Just now ust be only fourth-raters, and I ouldn't like to class them as such, !. -spite all the critics have to say. it's cui i.nm. but the demerits of my rivals ar. only discovered after I am done with them.

President Pulliani. of the National League, who was here today, said: "When two base runners negotiate a double .steal each should be credit ed with a stolen ba.se. but if the catcher throws one of the two out the other should not be credited with a stub n base, as he reaches his des lination on a put-out. "I hardly think it fair to the ratchet- to credit one runner with a stolen base if he n!ps the other when the pair try for a double steal." said Pul liani. "He certainly cannot throw out both base runners and should be protected to that extent. Of course, there may be .some who differ with me. but that i.s my opinion. "You can't imagine hw many In- iniiries 1 receive about different plays mat come up during .1 season. There fire hundreds of them, and I suppose in many cases my opinion differs rad ically from that of some one else. Scoring Is, to a great extent, a matter "f Judgment.

It Is imperative that the fans of AlbuiUeriUe turn out in good y num bers tonight at the m etinK to be held In the oflb-e of Iv L. Medler 1,, th,. Whiting block, corner of c,..d avenue and Second street upstairs, for the purpose of arranging for a baseball team. A manager nml secretary and treasurer are to be elected and H I" equally imperative that live ones be chosen for those positions. While it Is April yet, it is believed that It will ri-uuire a month to build up .1 team and that by the time the weather is right the team will be ready. Alhuiiucriiiie has less baseball material to start in with this year than in many years past and many players will have to be secured from the outside, which will not be very lifliciilt considering that Frank Har ds, who was secretary and treasurer d' last year's team, already has 1. umber of letters from players ilesli ng to come here and play. A few of tli.se players' an- willing to work wln-n pot playing ball, and can be had for a little money, from a base ball source, providing they are given rk. It Is believed that a large number of semi-professional players or a majority of the players can be cured under the same conditions, which will do much toward making the team a success financially as well us from a point of view of furnishing the fans some good sport and giving he town some good -advertising as a I'.'e OIK. People with money to spend and milling to do must have something to talk aboul and a winning baseball am solves the problem. Albuiiier- liie must have sm h -a team. While in- field from which teams are to be had is small it is plenty large' enough furnish games at h ast once a week. lil Paso has several teams in the field. Ils Vegas is getting up a team. Trin- lad is getting up its usual good team join the Colorado State league hut the league lias not been formed yet mil It is likely that games can be had from that city this summer. Santa Fe Is already In the game, and the Pecos valley has a six-team league. With tin- New Mexico Kastcrn railway In operation games may be had this year from that part of the territory. There are probably a half dozen (layers in the city who have worn the Brown in days gone by und who might be persuaded to don it again for the opening of the season, and some of the old players might make good for the entire season. All of these players should attend the meet ing held tonight. The meeting will called to order at 7:30 01 lock.

Uutler, Uert Uuker, WHEN ADVERTISING IS THE SUBJECT It is rot hard for the business man to determine which of his adver tisements are producing results, and it is only natural that he should place his advertising where experience shows it will do the most good. That is exactly the reason why The Albuquerque Citizen is carrying more advertising than any other paper published in New Mexico. If you wish to verify this statement, lay your ruler upon The Citizen and the paper that in your estimation i its closest competitor. Measure them for a week and take the average. You will find The Citizen several columnsjin ad vance per issue. We confess,' that we are in business for what we can make, and we realize that just as soon as an advertiser ceases to get results, we lose his account. That would be bad for us, so we spare no effort that could pos sibly increase the value of our services to him. One reason why our advertisements secure results, is because 'The Citizen is issued at an hour when people have time to read. Prove the advantage of this by your own case. How much time do you have for reading in the morning? Don't you read the headlines, and maybe an article or two that are of particular interest and then go to work? This is true of almost everybody, men and women. But when The Citizen comes out, it is different. You have time then to read everything, from telegraph to town topics, from editorials to advertisements. The evening is the only time that busy people have time to read. toe employ a man whose sole business it is to look after the advertising, in your office, in The Citizen office, and in the composing-room. He is a busy man, but never so busy that he can 1 talk over your situation with you. He will advise you to your own best interests (for reasons aforesaid) and give you the benefit of his experience. He will write your ad from your sugges tions, or from his own ideas, and he will care for it when it goes into the paper. SEND FOR HIM TELEPHONE 15 Tom Hubbel, Dr. V. W. Spargo, M. P, Kelly.

The change of base on the part of the Itner is partially, so he says, because he had a difference with Nelson over a money M-ttlement in l,os Angeles, and partially lnause of the guaran tee that C.lea.xon has made.
