tronble to begin was 4 o'clock p.m..
and by that t me fully fifty men rf all
walks of life, from the respectable
cotton bnyer ti the festive bat keeper,
bud assembled to eee the sport. The
rcom was about 100 feet long and 40
fett wide, and on oae side of it a 10
fiot riDg had been staked off. The
tloor vat bare and slightly sprinkled
with rosin to prevent slipping. Much
time was loet in arranging prelimina

wan f mnd that tbe purse fell short

mitted to deliver blows when clinched
or after the referee calls "brea't."
At 0:0,1 o'clock McGraw entered tbe
riDg, which was sepaiated from the
audience by ropes firmly secured to
rue iron stakes and pillars. At 6:06$
Doyle entered the inc!o3ure, fo' lowed
by bis seconds, who were provided
with a bucket of water, a horse sponge,
a bottle ot whisky and a vir.l of arnici.
McGraw's seconds were similarly pio

The tactics of cautious sparring
adopted in the first round were con
tinued in the second. The men
seemed to be ganging each other's
skill, although it had already become
evident to the knowing ones in the
audience that McGraw was greatly
superior to Doyle in science, strength,
agility and endurance, and a sure
winner, barring accidents. There wai
do partlcclar feature to mark this
bound 3.
. McGraw got in soane clever work
and knocked Doyle down. The men
got warmed up and fought viciously,
clinching a half dozen times and let
ting go reluctantly even attir repeated
calls of "break" by tne referee. At
the conclusion of the round tbe men
retired to their corners, pantng and
puffing with the hot work done.
McGraw set another stinirer fnll in
Doyle's face, and after clinching lifted

becoming interested and wanted them
to go on. "All riabt."safd Dovle's sec
ond, who by the way is considered tbe
best man ot bis weight in tbeee parts.
"All right, let's finish this without

welcomed by the crowd, but tbo ref
eree would not have it, and it must
be eaid to tbe- credit of both Dovle
and McGiaw that tbey did not insist
upon it

In this round Doyle did Lis beet
work, and got in some tilling btowa,
among others kno.-k-dnwn that was
exu'ained by the MtG:a adherents

slippery condition of the spit where
be fell.
b:cno 8.
The figlt'rg began without tuition
and was tierce from the beginning, but
McGraw delivered his blows with such
rapidity, force and f fleet that Doyl"
became groggr, Btaggn.cd. reeled and
finally fell reeling to the tl ior aa limp
asaia?. He was picked up by his
seconds and thrown i.t Mctiraw who
knocked him flit with apparent evse
and furnished a peifett illus'.ri tion ot
whfct is called wipiDg the Iborwith a
nan. Doyle us picked up again
and again knocked down, this
time moaning, "Oh, ob !" in the most
piteous tones, as if mortally injured,
lie was carried to his corner and titer
much tubbing and sponging revived,
but be evidently bad enough, for he
took off his gloves, threw them to tbe
tbor, and went through the antics
usually described as throwing up the
sponge. His eecond.", however, en
treated him to fight one more rouud,
telling him tbey Lai detected sigus of
weakness in his antagouitt. He finally
l onsen ted, and when time uj called
came to the scratch.
For a man who looked aa near dead
id Doyle did when be lay on the
giound, it muat be confesKed he ad ad
sufficiently spry in the ninth round to
give color to tha theory tla' he was
either shamming in the eighth loJtul
or coward to the back-Umti. A f or one
or two feints McGraw knocked Doyle,
against the ropes and befit e he could
recover hit him pgain. The men got
t)getber, the referee shouted break,
but McGraw cou'd not resist
the temptation to pummel
him once more. "Foal'' was
claimed by Doyle's neconds and
allowed to the general diNguet tf all
firesent but Doyle a menda, as the
tt'er was awsrded the tight and got
tbe money. It was a lame and im
potent conclusion to what promised to
be a fight to be decided on its merit.
The genei n! sentiment cf sporting mi n
who were not interested either way is
tl ut if McGraw is alhwtd lalf a
chance be will ting the lift) out of
Doyle. '

der "dumped" Vaa Dibber's laet
otiekfol of type on the "galley." The
jubilant shouier held a curious look
ing watch "on" the led?r in the
contest and he felt justified by tbe
time made, and in cloe mental figur
ing on each stick emptied, in culling
out in thet way. When it was ollii'i
ally announced tbat Van Bibber bad
set 2650 ems in the hour and a half,
this beiDg fifty ems more
than tho previous "beet record,"
the many palefa;td "typos"
clustering about the stage gave
a subdued cheer and talk t of tbe
piobable champion swift making 2800
ems before the clr a j of the race was
indulged in, and a'l the ia:ers are
good-natured and jovial over the con
test, and only hope the public will
really grasp the details cf the match
and be satisfied with their effoits. A
curious feature of the tourney was the
statement of one rf the men tbat the
strain on his mind and system in close
it'.tention to the copy and cases, nod
his rapid motion fn; an hour and a

The d' ttils of the crime with which

Hammack, pitint him as oaacf the
vileat wretches with whom the law
ever bad to deal. Ward owna lO'.Hj
acres of the richest land iu Trous lule
coiiLty, and baa a fine frrui well
stocked with blooded cattle and
horses. He wa-s married at nineteen
years of age to an innocent and pnt

hunhaud's lusnno thirst for wtiiaky,
and during tbat tini9 be ha fre
quently beaten bis wife, a fiail,
delicate lit'lo woman who bore it iu
sildnce. While the last heavy enow
lav over two feet deep on the ground
Ward went borne intoxicated, and be
gan quarreling w th hia wife, wbo
t'ied to get out of his way. He struck
her two or three vio'ent blows and
she ran out iido the hall. Ward seized
a shotgun and was in the act ol pull
ing the trigger when his wife sudden
ly turned, ran under the tnuf..le and
knocked the turret up The It ad wai
discLifgcd into the wall, tearing away
the lathing and pin tsr and the gun
fell from his hands. The frightened
woman tanoutcf the house, followed
by the brute, who threw ber down in
the snow anu began btating ber with
his lUttt. With the energy which
cornea of despair the detracted woman
dt frjtidcd her life, delivering hI bait
one 11 iw with audi tuect that her aa
sailant's hold was broken and he fe
to the ground, it anned for the mo
ment. Seizing her opportunity she
made her escape to the barn and con
ceulud herself in the bay in the

Triple Weildlnsx Reception.
Tbe triple wedding reception last

vard was one of the matt success
ful affaiiH Memph'B society has
ever known a great deal to say Iu a
city where refinement, elegance and
taste are neatly always combined upon
occasions c f that character. The idea
of a triple reception had about it an
air cf novelty dear to the feminine
soul, though it carried with it the
necessity for a -wonderful amount of
ok i ll and tact in order to harmoniz tbe
variety of circumstances and incidents
which must necessarily arise. To say
that the culmination cf the event, for
which such elaborat e preparation was
needed, wai aa happy as the idea
itself, is nothing more than a graceful
tribute ti the lair ladies upon whom
its management devolved. Kvery de
tail was arranged with the skill which
comes only with the most thorough
acquaintance with the unwritten law
ot polite society.

fifty of tboie in the eity who were in
