Inclined. Til? wan strikingly exemplified
the other day in the big Union railroad
station at Columbus. Ohio. The
writer was listening to an entertaining
account of the difficulties chut attended
the efforts of Corbett to start ^Brother
Joe" in the vocation of professional base
ball . when the conversation WAS interrupt
I by the passing of hundreds of
boys in blue, who were marching aboard
a 131k Four train that was to carry them
from the Columbus barracks to Fort
Thomas, Kentucky, opposite Cincinnati,
for work before the target range. It wos
the Seventeenth United Statee Infantry
?one of Uncle Sam's crack regiments,
but It was amislng to observe the way
the soldier boys turned their heads to
l.)ok at Corbett, for the word had passed
along the line In the mysterious way
news Is flashed through a crowd that the
ex-champlon was sitting near-by. Tho
officers were kept busy holding the line
In anything approaching alignment.
However, when the regiment boarded tho
train an.I restraint had ended, the enthusiasm
of the boys was unloosed In a rousing
cheer that awoke echo after echo
through the great vaulted train shed.
Ami li was Sunday, too. The racket was
kept up until Corbett stepped to the railing
and repeatedly acknowledged tho
compliment. The latter was evidently
pleased with the reception accorded him i
s.? unexpectedly, and remarked:
'Those fellows must come from the
coast."
In connection with this Incident there |
was an amusing bit of unconscious comedy
on the part of a gentleman of mature
3'ears. w hose attire, from cowhide boot i
to slouch hat, heralded him In no unmh- ]
takuble manner as a resident of the rural
community sometimes called Hayseeds
vilie. The old fellow was standing next i
to Corbett nnd In s<?me way l?ecame im- !
t>ued with the idea that the boys on the
train below were giving their vigorous
f xhlbitlon of the "glad hand" for his par- I
tlcular benefit. Someone kindly enllght- j
ened him, and then It was even more
amusing to observe the look of awe with i
which h?- took In the great man beside I
him. The old fellow brought the chap- j
ter to a end by volunteering a hearty
hand-shake which Corbett accepted with
the affability that has replaced the former
arrogance that alienated some of his
admirers.
"Ye?," Mid Corbett, after thetraln had
pulled out. "1 had quite an experience
getting Joe Into the big league two years
ago. When we were at Asbury I'ark
and I vras training for the flght with

In my training ho frequently played
ball on the grounds near-by, nnd very
soon I got wonderful reports of his pitching
abilities, but didn't pay much attention
to them. Joe is a great fellow to
'string' one and one day he made me
laugh by declaring be could pitch a ball
with such a tremendous curve that I
couldn't catch It. Tho result wan wp

you know; he's the best twlrler in the- m
country to-day without exception. He T
leads the league In victory, and there's p
one feature of tlie boy'# work N
I've noticed thU year that E
Che scribes d??n't ?eem to m
have caught onto the fact that In only
one game this year has the opposing
team earned as many runs as Baltimore
In games In which Joe has pitched. Had
there been no errors in the gumes he's
pitched, all but one would have bwn victories
for his team. I don't believe this
recoid has ever been approached."
BOXING.
Before very long it is likely lovers of
the manly art will be treated to a bout
between Will Donaldson, of this city,
und Mike Kelly, of Cleveland, both colored
heavyweight boxers. They are
anxious to meet each other, and will if H
some club will bang up a purj^or guar- H
antee a share or the receipts. There is Jb
no doubt but what they'll put up a
lively contest. Kelly has been in the
city for over a week. Donaldson
sparred three rounds at Jack Bowen's
fistic entertainment at Washington T
Thursday night. He went on with Ed
Violett, who claims the colored ehamplonship
of Canada,and he didn't get the
worst of it by any means. The liowenHtelzer
contest, by the way, was stopped ?
in the fourth round by the police, 8telzer
had the best of It all the way T
through. Donaldson will go to Washington
again to-day to get on a match
with VloMt, to take place wherever
there Is an ussurance of the Klondike.
THE SIX-DAY RACE. h
h
Sprints, fast and furious, were the or- ^
der of the evening at the Ladles' SJx f.
Day Bicycle Race, last evening, the
leaders riding more laps than on any g.
previous evening. Wagner and Allen jj
seemed to have It In for one another and r
the way they chased each other around
the saucer at breakneck speed was terrific.
Vine, Howard and Hartley also
had their sprinters with fhem, while __
Young, the local rider, shows remark- ?
able Improvement over her riding of im(|
Wednesday night. She stayed with the run
bunch it good part of the time and set
seemed to have no trouble in managing 8??'
her wheel. She will learn to be a "Famous
Flyer" yet If she keep9 on. The KJf
race will finish Saturday night, cutting pa(1
the time down to ten hours. Rain pre- ami
vented the continuance of the race on Hot
Thursday and the management at first Hot
intended to let the race continue until {'j'^
Monday evening In order to get In the g?l
entire twelve hours. It appears, howev- Kill
er, that some of the girls have other engagements
for next week and there- '
fore must leave town Sunday. On this ST.
account the race will finish this even- ?r?
