Now this Loadman is the possessor of a prize as his main stock in trade. He is one of tho few who has been able to flatten out the wily Ertle for the count of ten and his record for stopping boys of his weight is quite impressive. Herman was never accused of having anything which resembled a punch. He can box like a streak, but is not a fighter. He Is tall for hio division and the advantage in height and reach has given him the edge over most lads who have met him at 118 pounds. Loadman and Herman hook up for twenty rounds at New Orleans July 4. On that day Loadman expects to leavo the ring before the end of the twentieth with the bantamweight crown balanced gracefully on his classic dome. Scalded at L. V. R. R.

Trains A new change of time on the New York & Long Branch railroad which affects many of the trains both of the New Jersey Central and the Pennsyl vania railroad arriving and leaving the New Jersey Central station here went into effect Sunday. The new changes have made the schedule al most aa it was before the sweeping cut was made during the extreme cold weather «everal months ago, when the condition was such that when one went to the station it was a matter of waiting until a train came along as it was impossible to go by the timetables. Some of the most notable changes on the present schedule is the rein stating of the Central trains leaving for New York at 11:58 in the morn ing and 3:14, !:2C and 9:40 in the af ternoon and night for New York. More welcome news is that of the reinstating of the Central railroad theatre train leaving New York each night at 12:01 from Liberty street and 11:50 from West Twenty-third street, arriving here at 12:55. The Pennsylvania train leaving New York shortly after 9 o'clock each night and arriving here at 10:38 has been dis continued as has the Pennsylvania Saturday night theatre train, the Central replacing their 9 o'clock train from New York, arriving here at 10:19 in place of the 10:38 Pennsyl vania train.
