The scena ; was gratifying, to the race-loving men who stood on all the corners watching the procession. When it conies to the very best there. is in carriages, it h always "A. N.

Football at Fisk began on Bennett Field Monday, with a fair number of candidates in uniform, ready to get in condition to battle for the Old Cold and Blue this fall. A goodly number of the old stars, such as War ren, Dawson, McKissack, Smith, Thompson and probably Clarke will not be seen in the uniform of Fisk this season and will no doubt be greatly missed, but Coach Giles and Manager Jackscn are hopeful. The Coach is starting things with a rush and is determined to get the squad in the pink of condition as soon as possible. The schedule as it stands at present, calls fcr some hard series of games. Atlanta Baptist Cellege, Knoxville Co lege, Roger Williams, l ane Col'.e?.e. M?harry and possibly Tuskegee. Talladega and Howard have been arranged cr partially ar ranged to be opponents bv Manager Jeckson. The slogan already raised Is "Meharry must fa'l once more!" It is expected that within ten days the Fisk aggregation will be ready and prepared to listen for tr e sharp toot ,f the- -nfpiee's Tv'histie and struggle for the honor of their aliaa mater. Pearl High Getting Down To Busi ness. The Pearl High School football team starts the 1900 season under ery promising conditions. The old players of last year's team that have reported for practice are: Caldwell, Hurt, Davis, Captain; Floyd, R. Duncan, Duncan, ' Allison, Leach, An dersen, Williams and Dil'ahunty of last year's team are yet to report. These recruits have reported to the coach and give promise of mak irg first clnss material: Davis, Her man, Grey, Scruggs, Baxter, Johnson, Win-trn, Fite, Jesse, Stockard, H. J., MTer, Waddy, Chrismon. Others have signified an intention of joining the squad and the outlook is good. The first game of the season will be with Fisk on October 9. The team is now working with that game in view. Prof. Cameron, the head coach and trainer of the athletic eams of the High School, had greatv success the last school year. The football team won the Preparatory Championship of the South and the baseball team won the championship In 'the league composed of Walden University, Fisk University, Roger Williams Univer s'ty and - Pearl ' High 'School. The football season is drawing near and Pearl will deliver the goods. Ketchell Stands a Poor Chance to Win. We are now ready to figure on Stan ley Ketchel's chances when he goes into the ring with Champion Jack Johnson next month. They do not look particularly good to me; In fact, I cannot figure out on paper what right he has to think he can win from the big Negro, supposing he really does think so. That Ketchel believes he has great chance or at least did believe so before he was ready to face Lang ford there is little or no question. Ketchel has a mighty high opinion of his own powess, and justly so when he is fighting a man in his class, but he is fighting a man out of his class when he goes against Johnson. In weight Johnson has an enormous advantage at "least twenty-five pounds. An advantage in weight is the biggest advantage a fighter can have. It will net of course, make up for deficiency in fighting ability, but if the fighting ability of two men is about equal the man who weighs the more has a big advantage over his op ponent. It seems almost puerile to harp upon the difference in weight 'between Ketchel and Johnson, but many of the former's friends do not seem to take this advantage into consideration at all despite the fact that it is. weight and weight alone, which has divided pugilists into classes. There is no question of Johnson's great cleverness. In this respect he has another enormous advantage over Ketchel. The latter is a tough, hard vfirhter, but it whi be a surprise to me if 'he is ab'o to lay a glove on Johnson early in the battle, when he wi'l ho strong enough to have the steam behind it. -Kaufman is n mighty hard hitter but his punch did him no good against Johnson because he could not land it I do net think Ketchel has any better chance of landing than Kaufman. In every way that I can think of, except in courage and ability to slug, Johnson . has it on Ketchel. How, un der these circumstances, therefore, can one figure that Ketchel should de feat the Negro? The latter knows every trick of the ring; he is a hard hitter and wonderfully clever; he is cool bended and not disposes to take any wild chance. THE AGRICULTURAL MECHANICAL COLLEGE NORMAL, ALA..

A. axc-ccc.cocxraoooooocooc Ketchel. on the other hand, is not clever; he has a lot to learn about ring tactics; he Is a slugger of the type that offers his anatomy to his opponent in the endeavor to land a telling blow. With fighters of his own type this may be most effective, ecause he can absorb a lot of pun shmentbut against a man like John son it is apt to be suicidal. Johnson will take no chance of being hit him self to land a punch. He is able to and a punch without taking any such chance. And then above everything else, Is the big difference in weight between the two men. at these model Sunday-schools. As the contest drew to a close, it was ap parent that the race was being led by several of the Southern States, with Arkansas a favorite. After much canvassing by the different states, Arkansas led ln the collection by re porting something like $32.50. This is Arkansas' second time in the last three years to carry off the honors of the model Sunday-school. At the National Convention at Washington she won easily, 'tbe banner, going to the First Baptist Church at Little Rock. In all . probability, Arkansas will give this banner to one of the Helena churches. It will not be surprising if John son allows Ketchel to wear himself out in efforts to land a knockout early in the fight. . This is his style of fight ing; he lets his opponent come to him and wear himself down, and then, at the end, the Negro steps in and fin ishes a man who has almost exhaust ed himself by his fierce efforts to force the battle. If Ketchel were a more olever man he might be able to keep away from Johnson, but the chances are that he can fight only one way rip in all the time. This is just what Johnson wants. In spite of all this it is not difficult to see why Ketchel should be willing to make the match. According to Ml reports about him recently. he would have a hard time to ever make the middleweight limit again. Then battle with Johnson probably means a lot of money, although I doubt if It will draw the crowd that its promo ter believed it would. It is likely that Johnson will enter the ring an overwhelming favorite. It is hard to see how he could be anything else under the circumstances. Any good man is likely to make a great showing against a champion in a short fight, and yet be wholly inca pable of winning in a long battle, such as decides championships and brings out the calibre of real cham pionships. Almost any time now the famous Jeffries-Johnson controversy should become the main topic of conversa tion among fight .fans once more. The former champion will have to come out in the open this autumn if he is going to retain his hold on pop ularity. Since he left for Europe Johnson has made great strides in irnininsr nubMc favor. His claims that he can whip Jeffries are recelv Ins: far more serious consideration than they ever did before, and the Californian must do something be sides say he can defeat Johnson to make every one believe that he really can do the trick. 'Ar matters stand it is hard to see brv there is a chance of Jeffries and Johnson getting together this year and if they ever do meet it is not likely that the fight can be even Rohpriuied before some time late In 1910 Bill Curtis, in Chicago Trilune NOTICE.

Great interest, was manifested at Columbus, O., Sunday morning over the banner that is usually given away REV. READY DEAD. Last Friday night at 11 o'clock the death angel visited Woodbury and took our dear beloved pastor, Rev. W. M. Ready. Rev. Ready has been a fine church laborer and the Lord has found better work for him asove where he will be with king Jesus. He lived a Christian life, walked in the narrow path and to-day he is safe in the arms of Jesus where parting will be no more and where there will be no more sorrow. During Rev. Rea(i, i two years of ministerial work a this place he wag loved by aJll, and we can truthfully say that we have lost a faithful servant, one that was ever at his post of duty. Rev. Ready is not dead but only sleep ing and in the morning of the resur rection when all the saints who have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the lamb arise, we will join our dear elder, over ther? where there will be no more parting. Rev. Ready left a wife, five children, three sisters and a host of friends to mourn their lost. GUEST HONORED. Mrs. C. J.
