Batter icy. rams. can ,u. and liquid fire were used constantly in the at tack upon the half-ruined forts of Constantinople, and at one time the Turks seat forward a wooden turret on rollers, which was destroyed by the Greeks and their Allies. A Christian squadron of ouly five ships repulsed the Turks iu a desperate na val raid, though Mohammed himself, sitting or. horsoback on the beach, yelted reproaches at hit sailors and even spurred his horse Into the- sea. Mohammed conceived the desperate cr part of the harbor. In cnc night the Turkish fhv: climbed a hill and was launched, and the upper harbor was occupied- The Ottoman cannon demolished tho Greek forts iu forty days, and the CiuaF assault begao on the morning of May 23.

For instance there is Samuel Langford, who started life in Nova Scotia, and who is about as handy a man with his fists as any to he found on the crust of this oblate sphcriod. Old-time fans will recall many othor Canadian heavyweights who made their mark?on the faces of their oppononts?among whom were two native sons of little Prince Ed ward Island, Joe Lannan and George Godfreyl. Lannan, who was born in Charlestown just half a century ago, March 1, 1865, was a contemporary of John L. Sullivan, Charlie Mitchell, Pot'cr Jackson and other heavyweights who gave zest to tho Hfc of the fight fans some twenty-five or thirty yoar3 ago. Godfrey, best remember ed as "OTd Chocolate," because of ;hls decidedly brunette skin, was too light Lo aspire to tho heavyweight cham pionship, but the game and clever ne gro gave the big fellows of that day a lot of trouble. Llko nearly an me uhhuuiuu EjuX* ars, Joo Lannan began his ring lareer In Boston. It was about thirty years ago that Joe began mingling with boxers now :iR but forgotten but fair by prominent In that period?such follows of Danny Kolllher, Matt Cun ningham and JI<n Duffy. In 1885 Lannan went to St. Paul and whipped J'oo Brady and Billy Wilson, but lost to Pat Klleen. He also bested E. McKoon at Grand Forks N. D.. Back In Boston knock ed out John P. Loughlln and Frank Herald and fought a draw with his :ountryman, George Godfrey. Lannan got Into the limelight In 1887, when he was matched with Jake Kllrain for the championship of America. Jake then claimed the ti tle bccauso of Sullivan's refusal to meet him and a littlo lator he was presented with a belt symbolic of the title. Tho Canadian put up a good light, but he was defeated In eleven rounds. In 1889 lio fought another draw with George Godfrey, and then mot Jack Ashton who knocked him out In the nineteenth round. Later that year Lauaan and Peter Jackson tTled to fight at Revere Mass., but' tho cops butted in and stopped the proceedings. In 1892 Lannan fought i three-round drawn with Jim Cor bott and then mot George Godfrey igaln. The fight was staged at Coney tnocked out by the negro. That end 3d his careor In America, although he ater fought a few battles In Eng force at ttye San Francisco Expoiii !on, for the tournament. The polo jeople will hold the center of atton ion of tho smart set at the fair un 11 April 2b, when tho final meet is srs, who will have a tournament last ng a month. Matches will be played on the polo : field in the Exposition grounds three times a week. The new field is a beautiful stretch of sward which looks down toward tho bay. Twice a week there will bo matches at El Gerrlto field, near San Mateo, where the moro exclusive society patrons of tho polo grounds will have their head quarters. Through private correspondence, It is learned that tho Earl of Elgin, Sir James Wilson, the Countess of Lev en, tho Duke of Lclnstcr, Sir John Carey, and other prominent English | enthusiasts will attend the matches. ; The Playcre Fraternity is about to; branch out, Ed. Ruelbach, who has signed a Fed contract sice tho Brook-' lyn Nationals released him, is already; at work organising an insurance chap-, tor. Dave Fultr. says there is nothing; in the fraternity constitution to pre vent an alliance between tho slaves, of organized baseball and the about-to be-uplifted minions of tho rebel chiefs.
