Paddock: In the 22nd round at Woking Common, Eng.- This, battle was for the cham pionship or England,-as Bendigo had retired, and Paddock and "the Slash er" were the leading contestants for the vacant honor. Paddock, who had previously been defeated by Bendigo, was a good man. but he was no match for "the Slasher," and he was not slow in discovering It. After he had been thoroughly drubbed Paddock evident ly had enough, for he dropped repeat edly without a blow being struck. The referee forced him to go on, however, and in the 22nd round Paddock com mitted a deliberate foul by striking "the Slasher" on the back of the nech. after the round had ended.

Tomorrow will be Ty Cobb Day, for the Peerless Peach, who has had the title of "Greatest Player in History," wished on him by adulatlous fans, was born on the 18th of December, 1SSG. As 1886 from 1914 leaves 28. wo dope it out tlmt Tyrus Raymond Cobb is on the eve of his 2Sih birth day. Let mathematical experts who disagree with these figures speak up now or forever hold their peace. The birth date of the greatest of modern heroes is well authenticated and beyond dispute, hut two different towns in Georgia claim the distin guished honor of being the scene of the arrival In this world of the great I and only Ty. Royston, a village in | Franklin county, Ga? is usually speci fied as the birthplace of the Phach, and the citizens of Itoyston have nev er done anything to dissipate that no tion. There seems to be good ground for the belief that the glory really belongs to Narrows, in Banks county. In any event, Ty Is a Georgian, and the innocent bystander will bo per fectly willing to lot it go at that and permit Royston and Narrows to settle their own feud. 'Tlsn't always health ful to butt into quarrels like that. While Tyrus, for a consideration said to be the largest ever given to a ball player, wears a Detroit label on his buzzum during the summer months, he is still a Georgian, suh. He will accept tho filthy lucre of the no'thenehs, and play ball for 'em, but his heart dwollB ever in the Em pire state of the Southland. Ho is fiery and impetuous, as ho demonstrat ed a few months ago when he waded into a Detroit butcher after a dispute over the purchase of some fish. Ty had to pay a $50 fine imposed on him by an unfeeling Detroit police magis trate, but he proved that it isn't safe to "rile" a son of Georgia. Cobb usually spends his winters in his native state. Next to playing ball, he likes to hunt. Not long ago he made a hunting trip which netted numerous wild turkey and a deer. Ty came or an excellent Georgia family, his father having been a coun try editor who also served as mayor of Itoyston and member of the Geor gia Senate. Cobb's youngest brother. Paul, sought to emulate Ty's record, but he has never climbed higher than a minor league berth. Ty's eminent friend, Christy Matliewson, also has u kid brother. Hank, who has perform ed at first base on minor league clubs. It would be too much to expect the lightning of such genius as Ty's or Christy's to strike twice in the same family. ^ TODAY'S BITHDAY PARTY f By O. Terence. | ? ?
