LIGHTWEIGHTS FIGHT TWELVE
ROUNDS WITHOUT ADVANT AGE ON EITHER SIDE. COVE-ALLEN BATTLE PLEASES FANS Paddy O'Hem, of Lewistown, and Young Wallace, of Milwaukee, met last niglit for their third battle, each having previously won a decision, and the hope of the partisans that this meeting might prove decisive was not realized. Referee John McIntosh being compelled to declare it a draw. Both lightweights showed very mark ed improvement over their previous form. O'Hern was much stronger and fairly held his own at infighting wltn the husky Wallace. He showed re markable speed and his foot work was excellent. Wallace dropped his old system, of covering up through the greater part of every round, as he did when he last met Paddy here, and fought an open battle most of the time. Through this he made a vast ly better showing than when he fought O'Hern here some months ago. He too, has more speed and is a very hard hitter. Throughout the fight O'Hern played consistently for the stomach and landed some hard ones in the midsection. Wallace made Paddy's face his mark just as consist ently. The result meant a great deal to each of the boys and thev both fought very cautiously. The weights were announced at 128 pounds each at 3 p. m. yesterday. Wallace had i I.ouis Savoy, Percy Cove and Willie Freeman in his corner, while Tommy [ McCarthy and Phil Kearney did the! advising for Paddy. j Round 1—Wallace opened with a! Rad for the face, but was short and I 'hey clinched. Wallace landed light; to the face and O'Hern evened it upj with one to the side of the head.

Round 2—The boys came to a clinch immediately and on breaking Wallace landed to the face and then to the neck. There was another clinch and on the break Wallace tried to rush and P'>i , 4v uppercut him. A moment later Wallace tried the same thing with exactly the same result. O'Hern may] have had a very slender shade in this.! Round Round 3—Wallace led for the face but was short. An exchange followed and Paddy landed light to! tle face, followed by the usual clinch' nod infighting. There were several ex changes and near the end of the round Wallace scored a clean blow to the face, Paddy coming back with an up-: percut. Wallace tried a rush hut it availed him nothing and he was forced; to cover. Round 4—Opened with a light ex -1 change. O'Hern landed to the atom-' nch and Wallace got home to the face. There was a lot of infighting during this round and O'Hern's ability at] this style of milling against Wallace! surprised the fans.

It appears that in no city'of 1,000,000 ! lonle or morn save Moscow, in Eu 1 people or more rope or America, has there been a de crease of less than 20 per cent in the death rate within the period given. In Berlin the decrease was 41.5 per cent—from a rate of 26.5 to one of 14.7. New York improved from 27.5 to 16; Chicago, from 21.5 to 15.1; Philadel phia, from 22.3 to 16.8. Of European cities, besides Berlin, Paris dropped from 24.4 to 16.7; Lon don, from 20.9 to 12.7; Vienna, from 28.2 to 15.8; St. Petersburg, from 32.8 to 24.1. The change in backward Moscow was from 33.3 to 26.9. "I believe," writes Prof. Bailey, "it was an Englishman who once said that since the cities were so much more unhealthful than the country district, we wondered why people had never thought of building their cities in the country. "That is what we are trying to do at present. We are making parks and playgrounds in our cities, we are build ing tenement houses in which the light and air can enter every room, and we are trying to give the people of the cities some of the advantages of coun try life.

Street had; been going rather badly and had been carrying a grouch for nearly a month Tim called the first strike. "Aw, go on, you big dub!" yelled Street, glaring at Hurst. "That ball was over by head. Why don't you clean up your eyes?" "You have a fine kick coming, you recruit", answered Hurst, reaching around in his hip pocket and bringing forth a clipping. He shoved it in front of Street's amazed eyes, and growled, '"You have a fine chance to kick, you have! You're a great bat ter, yes, you are! Look there, the averages have you down at .220!"

SPOPT I FTTFR FIIRNISHFn By toe assocmtIdpressI NEW YORK, September 6.—The re markable spurt of the Boston Nation al league club, which carried it from last place to a tie for first position in a little more than a month, established record in major league baseball. While the Braves never seriously threatened the record of continuous victories, they won strings of games ranging from four to seven straight, with seldom more than one defeat breaking the sequence and is a York ; Giants for first place on August 24 was extremely sensational. it is hard to fix the exact date upon which the Braves first showed signs (,f the rush that was destined to carry them from the bottom to the top of the , league in less than six weeks. On Monday, July 6, the club was in last place, having won 26 games and lost 40 for a^percentage^ of -394.^ Philadel pliia held seventh place with .467. On that date the Braves started a run of four victorles and continued with few defeats until August 24. During this period Boston met every other club in the league except Philadelphia, win nin S 33 games, losing eight and tieing ! (,ne - while P la y in K at this .805 clip ! the Braves scored 164 runs, 335 hits, rna de 54 errors and had 285 runners stranded on the bases. The averages show that but one and two-sevenths errors w «re made per game and one run scored for every two hits. The ij es t run of victories was made be tween July 27 and August 6, when nine games in a row were won from Chi cago, St. Louis and Pittsburg. It is also a P e culiar coincident that these ,. ounted for t he eight games lost by the Braves, during the period under i consideration. Nothing like this rally or rush has 1 heretofore been recorded in the an nals of the bi B league. The nearest approach was the dash of the Chicago ^ lte Sox , n 1906) when under t g e management of Fielder Jones, the Chi cago club, by winning nineteen straight games, lifted itself from sev enth first Place in the American : league and later defeated the Chicago Nationals in the world's championship sene f s ', \ ou F * am f two ' Ev f en tbis run fell short of the record, for the major league figures were set at twen ty games by the Providence club of the National league in 1884, and the | minor league record of twenty-eight games, made by the Corsicana club, of the Texas league, in 1902. - Billiard contests between experts al ways attract attention the world over, but followers of the game in the States States and Canada will be af forded an unusual opportunity within the next two months of witnessing the acknowledged professional masters of the English and American styles in an international series of matches, the games in which will be played alter nately on English and American ta bles.

Inclusive. The Canadian dates and places of meeting will be arranged later on. Both men have been practicing earnestly for some months, each of course paying a great deal of atten tion to his opponent's style of game, and the matches should afford billiard lovers splendid opportunities for in teresting comparisons. Twenty-one years ago, May 29 to June 2, 1893, the late Frank C. Ives, the Michigan cue wonder, who was known as the Na poleon of French and American bil iiards, played a series of three match es with John Roberts, Jr., the English billiard champion, the first in London, England, the other two in Chicago and New York, at the English style exclu sively. Ives won the London match, 6,000 to 3,821, mainly through the "anchor" shot with two object balls "choked" in the mouth of a corner pocket. This was a trick which Ives had learned from his tutor at the American game, the late Jake Schae fer ,of Chicago, and having once se cured this "position," Ives could have continued to click off caroms inter minably. The English champion was prevented, under the conditions of the match, from playing the "spot" stroke more than once, because he could keep counting from that position almost as At Chicago, the following Septem ber, Ives defeated Roberts again, by a score of 6,000 to 5,303, under similar ] conditions, but two weeks later they met in New York in a match of 10,000 points up, with the "spot" and "an chor" barred, and under these changed conditions Roberts won after a most interesting week's play by 10,000 to j 8,738. During this match Ives sur to prised Roberts and all the other ex perts at his deftness and the "rail" nurse, in which, by diligent practice, he had mastered the art of turning corners and passing the side pockets without pocketing a ball. In one game, with Roberts far in the lead, Ives made three runs of 651, 515 and 395, a total of 1,551 points, at this style of play and the following day made an , share of the money prizes other ru nof 586. On the final day of the match, although Roberts was 1, 001 points in the lead, the English champion declared that he did not feel that he had a safe margin, as Ives was likely to run out the game with his wonderful "rail" work, but Ives was unable to secure his favorite position that day and Roberts won handily. The conditions of the coming series are unique, as each man will have the opportunity of pulling up at his own style should his opponent's "home" game become too strong, and if Hoppe can develop the "rail" nurse to any de gree of efficiency, his well-known abil ity at balk line play should give him a splendid chance of winning the larger The passing of the 1914 baseball season is marked today by the comple tion of a number of the minor league baseball pennant races. Beginning with the Class B leagues and extend ing through to the Class D divisions, leagues in all parts of this country and Canada close with Labor day double headers. Among the most prominent associations which play their final schedule contests are the Central league, Illinois-Iowa-Indiana league; Texas State league, Tri-State league; Canadian, Colonial and Northern leagues; Atlantic league, Central asso ciation, K.

The two major leagues have still one month of play ahead, for they are not scheduled to end their flag-chasing ac tivities until October 7. Before that date rolls around, every league en rolled in the N. A. P. B. L., except the American, National and Pacific coast leagues, will have closed their season. The far western association boasts the lnogest period of schedule play, for the Pacific Coast league began play on March 31 and continues until October 25.
