FIFTY YEARS AGO.
A CAPITAL IDEA.
Extensive improvements are soon to
be made in the Sacred Heart church
and in order that the money neces
scary to meet the expense might 'be
raised without putting the parish
ioners to the inconvenience of a gen
eral collection, Father O'Brien de
termined to have it raised toy popu
lar subscriptions from the more
wealthy members. How well he has
succeeded was made known yester
day. The following are those that
contributed and the object for which
their contributions will ibe used: P.
W. Wnen, $600; John P. 'McMatom,
$500. These amounts will be de
voted for the erection of two marble
altars on either side of the main
altar. , The following gentlemen con
tributed $100 each for the purchase
of oil paintings to be placed in the
sanctuary: James Horan, T. J. Mur
phy. John F. McElroy, William Hic
key, Dr. John C. Lynch and John C
Ford. , James Sexton, Jr.. gave the
sum of $125 for the purchase of a
sanctuary lamp. Fourteen others
whose "nalmes were' not announced,
donated $50 each for. a new set of
stations of the cross. There 'being
fourteen stations, each station will
cost $50. It is expected the im
provements will ibe completed by
Sunday, March 3, when Bishop Tler
ney, assisted by fully 50 priests, will
re-dedicate the church. Another
surprise will he when the new organ
arrives. ' It will ibe one of the finest
church organs in New England, and
will not list far from ' $10,000. It is
expected to" arrive here about the
middle of March.

Although no Italian "has ever won a
world's pugilistic title, many of the
sons of sunny Italy have been game
and clever boxers. One of the best
of them was Benny "Sanger, who re
tired from the ring about six years
ago after a long career as a feather
weight and lightweight. Tanger, who
was sometimes called. The Tipton
Slasher," was bornyln New York City
thirty-three years -ago today, Feb. 18,
1882. ' He stood only a little over five
feet five inches.
Benny was about seventeen when he
started fighting, first as a bantam and
later in the feather and lightweight'
divisions. He won many 'of his early
battles by knockouts, and among his
victims were several boys who later
neld cnampionsnips. In 1900 he
knocked out Harry Forbes In the fifth
round of a bout in Chicago, shortly
before- the , Rockf ord boy won the
world's bantamweight title. In the
Bami year he stopped Young Corbett
and the next year the Denver lad
annexed the featherweight title by
knocking out Terry McGovern at
Hartford; The little Italian also ad
ministered . -the sleep dope to Tommy
McGovern, the famous Chicago boxer.
and battled draws with George Dixon
and Young Corbett. ,
At that period Tanger looked like
a coming champion, but the hoodoo
that prevents Italians from reaching
the top of the pugilistic ladder was
still at work. Tanger defeated Young
Corbett and Harry Forbes shortly be
fore they became champions, and in
1901 he whipped .George Dixon short
ly' after the Chocolate Drop had lost
his featherweight honors to Terry
McGovern. The Italian outpointed
the olever negro in fifteen fast rounds
at St. Louis. In 1902 Yanger stopped
Abe , Attell in . nineteen rounds, . not
many months before the little Hebrew
claimed the featherweight title. Ben
ny also defeated Austin Rice, the
veteran "Iron Man," at Chicago, and
Kid Herman, the Montreal Hebrew,
was knocked out in the third round
by the little Italian.
In 1903 Yanger whipped" Kid
Broad, - the Cornishman, in a twenty
round bout in Louisville, and defeated
Hugh McPadden in Detroit. Yanger
then went to theJ Pacific Coast, where
he was matched to fight Eddie Han
Ion, the little California "phenom"
who had made such a brilliant rise in
the fistic profession. In their first
battle, pulled off in San Franri
Benny held Eddie to a draw after
twenty rounds of brilliant work. They
w ai8o again a few months
later, and this time Hanlnn -eii
the decision, although Yanger went
the full twenty-round route, and
made a good showing. This wu ,
first time in his career the Italian boy
Yanger then returned to Chicago
and fought a draw with Aurelio Her-
rora, me Mexican lightweight. He
then defeated Charlie Nearv in Mil
waukee, after which he was again
matched with Herrera. His second
session with the Mexican took place
in -tmrte, jsaont., and Yanger was
B.xiocK:ei out in tne eighth round. It
was the turning of the tide for the
little Italian, and he was never as
good again. He defeated Tvr, ,,-),
Sayers in Milwauke, and then went
East and was stopped in the first
t " y xarry -ewis at Baltimore.
In 1806 he was knocked out w t.
my Murphy at Philadelphia, and lost
to Kid Herman at Indianapolis, to
Steve Kinney at Davenport, and to
Matty Baldwin at Boston." In i sot t,
fought his last important bout when
he was knocked out by Packey Mc
Farland at Fort Wayne, Ind. A year
ortwo later he tried to pull a come
back, but met only inferior men. In
his prime Yanger was a great little
boxer, and he ranks among the best
u me near-cnamplons.

bill of unusual attractiveness. Of
equal interest -with the arrangement of
the big vaudeville show, is the "book
ing here of Lew Fields, the famous
comedian, in his first appearance in
the "movies," in "Old 'Dutch," a very
quaint comedy in five parts. Fields
makes every hit as toig a hit as a
film comedian as he has 'been in
the legitimate stage offerings.

real life and is adequately presented
by a large cast.

a repertoire of the most tuneful songs
including tooth old-time masterpieces
and present day hits.
The Four Bards, the acrobatic
marvels of the age will thrill' au
diences with an exhibition of the most
daring feats ever performed on any
stage. '
El Burton & Co. have an odd and
delightful offering that, is bound to
bring results, if reports from othi
er cities in which it has appeared
count for anything. The act con
sists of singing and dancing tout is
far different from the usual f song
and dance . skit in that the artists
make many beautiful - costume and
character changes and carry" exquisite
stage settings to enhance their offer

Mardo and Hunter in their excru-
tlatlng arrangement of odd nonsense
entitled "The Crazy Recruit" will be
responsible for fifteen minutes' of

INSTINCT
Nature did not Intend that animals
should be educated, or did she bless
them with a super-abundance of common-sense.
Instinct Is thcta" domineer
ing trait and with this they In many
Instances show their superiority over
people, i For example did you ever see
an animal with a pair of rubbers, a
raincoat or an umbrella? .' It seems
that their dothlng is ever the same,
Nature has taught them the wisdom
of precantion with their INSIDES
rather than with their OT7TSIDES and
yet they never have colds, coughs or
grip- .
Humanity -would do well to accept a
im frnm their ostlncve friends
and during changeable weather use an agreeable preventive, raer than be
foroei to wow an etpenaw ana aiwgMuiD uu.
