A telegram from Mobile on Tuesday sent by Mrs. Green, of Pensacola, Fla., his daught er, who is at his bedside, reported him resting well and apparently out of dan ger. The message was sent to Mr. L. Landers, who has kept in communica tion with Mobile during the entire week. His illness is said to be a gen eral breakdown caused by overwork. Dr. McEwen is quite an important factor in Baptist affairs in Aabama, and was in the city only a short while ago attending the Sunday-School Con gress. SALEM A. M. E. CHURCH.

Jack John son, heavyweight champion , of the world, tonight outboxed Tony Ross, of Newcastle, Pa., in a six-round bout given under the auspices of the Na tional Athletic Club at Duquesne Gar den. While the bout was declared a draw on account of State laws pro hibiting the rendering of a decision in boxing tournaments, public opinion willingly conceded that Johnson had the better of the go from start to fin ish. It was a fast fight, both men up Y. M. C. A. Last Sunday the Y. M. C. A. held an interesting meeting at the St An drews Presbyterian Church on cor ner of Eighth avenue and Gay street.

The Ladies Aid Society of the First Baptist Church, Eighth avenue, North, met at the home of Miss Maggie W. . Stubbs, Monday afternoon, June 27. The President, Mrs. Louis Fort, called the meeting to order, and after ENJOYABLE DINNNER. An enoyable dinner was had at the home of Mrs. Carrie Brown ,10 Trim' ble street. Several courses were served. Those to enjoy he dinner were Rev. W. D. Pettus, of Peters burg, Tenn. Rev. T. W. Johnson, pas tor of Clark Memorial Chapel; Rev. W. R. Smith, District Superintendent of Nashville; Mrs. C. Brown, Mrs America Coffey, Miss Lillle Thomp son, of Hermitage. Tenn., and Milss Irene Brown. Of all the athletic sports indulged in by the American people it must be ad mitted that baseball is in the lead. This season of the year the small boy, the youth and the old man can be seen taking part in the game in some form or other. There are leagues upon top of leagues from one end of our coun try to the other. Men make baseball a business. They Invest millions of dol lars annually in salaries and equip ment Negroes are making attempts at running teams, and are succeeding fairly well, but there is need of better understanding between managers of clubs. A few months' ago ' Mr. Wm. Smith organized a team of young players and everything was running smoothly until he took the boys on a trip through Kentucky and Indiana. As soon as some of the managers saw what the boys could do they made them flattering' offers and as a result the Nashville Collegians are shot to pieces. The team promised to make a good showing, but Mr. Smith finds himself in worse fix now than when ha started practice in the spring. And it takes a good team to win, and win ning is what makes the home folks turn out. A good team in Nashville would be a raying proposition, and the people believe Mr. Smith is trying to get a good team, but they are from Missouri, and will have to be shown. They will support the game though when properly paid. The Louisville Cubs and Nashville Collegians playftd a series of games last week. The Louisville team boys took all three by good scores. The gartes were batting feasts in which all the Louisville players took a splen did role. The Nashville pitcher seemed unable to stop the hitting of the visitors, who slammed the ball to all parts of the lot. The feature of the game was the manner in which Watson, of Louisville, played third base. He is without a doubt the best seen in these parts for some time. His bitting was also a factor in the games. Smith and McVay, of the Collegians, also did some good hitting, and . the fielding of Kendall and Caruthers also saved many runs. The Collegians leave In a few days for their long southern trip, making Memphis, Bir mingham, Montgomery, Macon and New Orleans. We are hoping - them1 : success on their trip and may they bring home the bacon. The Standard Giants are having quite a successful trip from all reports, and seem to be. winning some games. They are making Missouri, Indiana and Kentucky, but hope to be at home in a few days resting up and then taking to the path again for a long Southern trip. 1 'T'T"",J row j 111 a DOES YOUR GllltfCII NEED SEATS?

Johnson, however, seemed to be out of condition, repeatedly rushing Ross, but seldom landing effectively. The crowd shouted wildly whenever Ross landed a telling blow, but hooted Johnson for his apparently rough work in the clinches. Referee Jimmie Dime said after the fight that Ross did remarkably well in the face of the fact that Johnson had it over him in weight and height. Johnson refused to talk after the mill, while Ross anxiously begged, for another opportunity to meet him. 1 COLUMBIA CUBS TO THE FRONT.
