pugilistic career of one of the world's
most jpecta-ular scrappers.
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

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

Cincinnati, April 23. 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.
"At present I cannot think of any
plan by which a universal system of
s. onrig ev. ry play can be divided up
on. 1 have known of iu,tincc.s where
linif the s. orers in a press box have
c:eliie. a player with a hit, while
lb'- other ha'f gave a fielder an er

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-

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.

tling Nelson hef.ira Jimmy Colt roth's
club, switched to the Uleason camp
and agreed to tight Joe Cans Thurs
day evening, May 14th, twenty
rounds, at the I'-diseuni rink. 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. On the
face of the arti.-.s that wire signed,
the Hoei- is to receive $3,000 win.

that lie will get as much as $5,000 for
jumping the fence.
At all events, he has signed, and
tile I'nhiilz-N'elson match Is off. The
Unci- wasn't In Pan Francisco many
hours In-fore he was approached by
(ilea-son. It apparently looked good
to him. Whether he trumped up a
diffcri lice with Nelson as an excuse,
is something that I'nholz alone can
i nsw er.
The articles were sgiicd by Alvie

I'nholz's disagreement with Nelson
