After a great deal of jaw fighting between the governor and the Duval club at Jacksonville, the fight be tween Corbett and Mitchell took place on time. Corbett is still cham pion. We give the result below by rounds. Round I—Corbett led with his, left on Mitchell’s chin. Each ex changed body blows and Jim reaches Charlie’s left eye heavily. Mitchell reaches the ribs. Another exchange and Mitchell clinches. Mitchell gets m one on Corbett’s neck and Jim lands right and left again jnst as time is called. Mitchell lands a good body blow. Honors easy in the first round. From the first round it looked as if it was to be a wicked fight Round 2—A wild exchange and a clinch. Corbett uppercuts his man as they come together. Mitchell lands hard on the ribs and as Mitch ell came toward him Jim caught him on the head, staggering him. Corbett uppercuts Mitchell again and lands with his right on Charlie’s ribs, Mitchell reaching Jim’s chin. In a sharp rally Corbett had all the best of it Mitchell got in twice on • Corbett’s neck. Corbett knocks him down twice in succession. Jim floored his man cleanly and knocked him down again as he essayed to rise. The gong saved Mitchell. Round 3—Mitchell rather groggy. Corbett rushed at him, swung right and left heavily on Mitchell’s neck. Charlie went down. He took the fullest time to rise and then Corbett rushed at him like a tiger. Mitchell clinched, Corbett threw him off and floored him with a stiff facer. Again he took all the time to rise, and when he advanced toward Corbett the latter swung his right with deadly effect on Charlie’s nose. Mitchell reeled and fell on his face, helpless. The referree counted one, two, three, four, five, six. seven, eight, nine. Mitchell is knocked out. The referee declared Corbett the winner and champion of the world. Time of fight nine minutes.

(???)LY AND THUNDER. **•( U TfcMfM UM mmprnrt Wrn • IMA at tk« Dm*. **\W Parrot stories are regarded ae here is one that I b»> iiere is true, because a friend of ml— »» vouch for it personally, having been present at the time. He was calling on my friend. Dr. Frank Har ris. at his home in Winthrop, Mass., christened Cuicory Doc. He calls it Chicory Doc because there is a dock outside and a “d« c” inside, and the whole place is surrounded by the bine flowers of the wild chicory, and is also quite chic. Well, the doctor has a parrot which is a remarkable talker, and of whose many expressions most are self-ae quired from observation. He sings and dances “Peek-a-Boo," calls to the neighbors and members of the family by their names. and is especial ly valuable when the telephone rings and the servant is not in that part of the house, as he. on hear ing the bell, immediately cries: “An nie! Annie!’’ till she comes and an swers the calL Hu also responds to any knock at the door, asking who it is, inviting the person in. and if the person does not come immediately, »ays: “Wait a minute," as he has heard others say before. One Sunday aft rnoon, when my fr end was there, a very heavy shower was in progress and the con versation was hushed by the fierceness |of the downpour and the flashing of j the lightning. Presently a sharp I flash was folio ed by a tremendous report, and then came the voice of Polly I “Who is it? Who is it? Come in! Wait a minute!’* Then, as there vas no response, he called sharply: | “D »ctor! doctor!’’ and then losing pa i tience, he became more familiar and insistently shouted: “Frank! Frank!’* But, though the company laughed, they all thought that the lightning had given a close enough call, and the erv of the bird _was not answered. A l)knc«rou4 Witness. “You can take the witness,” said the prosecuting attorney in a trial before a Texas court to the defend ant's lawyer. The witness happened to be a good-looking girl. ••Judge.” exclaimed a young man In the buck part of the room, stand ing up on a seat with one hand under his coattail, “don’t let him take her! That witness has been engaged to me for moren three years, and if he takes her tliar is goin’ ter bo (.rouble right here.”—Texas Siftings.
