JOHNNY LORE, 20 TO DAY, HAS 125 BATTLES UNDER HIS BELT. One of the busiest little fighting men in the business is Johnny Lore, who, although he still has a year to go before he will become a real adult, has about 125 battles under his belt. | Johnny will pass his 20th milestone today, having been born on the last day of 1894, and he has boon scrap ping four years. During his first year. In the game, 1011. he took part in 41' bouts, and won 25 by knockouts. His, success as a preliminary boxer made i him a favorite with the fans and gave , him a chance at bigger game. Lore's first defeat camc In 1012. when he was stopped by Tommy Houck. Last year he fought Joe Man dot, the clever Frenchman, lo a dra>v lu 10 rounds at New Orleans, anil also fought a 12 round draw with Joe Shugrue in Youngstown, O. He tlicnj returned to New Orleans, where ho j was knocked out by Frankie Russell, the Crescent City Italian. Lore also got. the worst of It in a 12 round bout with Gilbert Gallant, the conqueror of Leach Cross, in Boston. Lore's re- j cent battles haven't proved him a won der, but now that he iR at ills bwt! several pounds above the lightweight limit, he has a chance to cop the wel terweight title. Almost'any boxer who can make the weight has that. This Is also the birthday of Danny | Webster, the English boxer, who at; one time made a considerable noise j in the featherweight division. Web-1 ster was bom 29 years ago today lii Canterbury. Eng., lint, most of his scrapping was done in Los Angeles. His first big battle was In inos. wlien ' Ad Wolgast stopped him 111 IS rounds. He defeated Charlie White in a 20' round alTair at Vernon in 1310. but Joe nivers practically ended Ills fca-j rcer when lie knocked Webster out In the 13th round at Vernon about j four years ago. . Another veteran who celebrates his birthday on the last day of the ycari Is Charley Goldman, the little Hebrew ( boxer. Charley was born 111 Russia, i but. escaped to America at an early j age. and took up the honorable pro-; fcsslon of fisticuffs about ten years j ago. when he was 1*5. Goldman twice j fought Johnny Coulon when the Int ! ter was bantamweight champion, and i on each occasion stayed the full lfi rounds, but without winning any par tlcular glory. ' Robert M. Byrne, for several years a third baseman with the Pirates and i the Phillies, was born in St. Louis 2!) i years ago today. Byrne broke into professional baseball just ton years ago, when he played with Fort Scott, j Kan., in the Western Association. 11a j was at Springfield, Mo., in 1005, tak ing turns behind the bat and also j playing first and short anil In the out-1 field. The next year he went i o ? Shroveport, La., which then had a < club in the Southern Association, as i 'a shortstop'. His work there was so ; good that he was called into the his i show in 1907, covering third base for the St. Louis Cardinals. It stands: lo reason, however, that no baseball player could possibly make good inj his native city, and in 100!) Byrne was swapped to the Pirates. He remained in the Smoky City until 1913, when j a mid-season deal sent him to Phila delphia. Byrne lmJ5 played a good game with the Phillies, nlthough he lias never figured as an infield play er. and bis batting has never reached the .300 mark. This year he batted around the .275 mark, which Is about his average for several years past. 7 TODAY IN PUGILIS- | I TIC ANNALS, j ? zzzz ? 178S?William Warr defeated Will Wood In a long battle near Loudon. Like most of tho great battlers of that period, Warr hailed from Bristol, where he gave a good account of him self in several battles before he was matched, for.the championship with Tom Johnson ill 1787. Ho was de feated by the champion, but recover ed his laurels by whipping Will Wood, "tho Coachman," who was a bard hit ting and stubborn fighter. A littlo later Warr got, into a fight with a blacksmith, and landed a blow on the smith's Jay that ended forever the 'career of tho latter. Warr served a term in prison for that. Warr then tried to get a match with Dan Men doza, -who had claimed the title after Johnson's retirement, hut the Jew re fused to meet lilm until Warr slapped Ills face. The Hebrew then, consent ed to the match, and twice defeated 'Warr in battles for the title. That 'ended Warr's fighting, career. ? 1885?Danny Webster, British feath :A be Martin Too much tact makes a sneak an' K coivard of anyone.

WASHINGTON, Pa., Doc. 31,-Fred | Jamison, biggest money -winning driv er over the half mile tracks last sea son, has returned from Lexington, Ky., with three promising colts, two for his string at the Washington fair grounds and one for the stable, of Harry Fleming at the same plant. All three horses aye owned by Pittsburgh men and were purchased recently at the Kentucky horse center. The speediest horse of the trio Is Major Spier (3), 2:10 1-4, a 3-year-old trotter, by Directum Spier.. This bay geldln gis owned by J. C. Gormley, of Pittsburgh. The other horse for Jam Ison's string Is Guy Ilea, a hay stallion with a mark of (2), 2:IS. He is sired by George Todd, comes of fast stock and is owned by J. P. Howley, of Pitts burgh.

' . ? ?, ? . Miaa Eversham, who counted Tony as one of her moat promising pupils, ?was decidedly surprised. Tony was a sculptor of those little terra cotta and clay figures which are sold by ped dlers on city streets; but hehad a genuine artistic ability which Miss Eversham prided herself on having discovered. She had even projected a brilliant future for him, beginning with a course at the Cooper Union and ' ending with commissions from state governments and crowned heads. "But, Tony, you didn't tell .me any thing about this," objected Miss Ever sham. a little petulant "But I did not know till las' week, mees,". responded the young fellow. "I got a letter from my cousin Marl no. in Palermo. Ho save my father's life In the time of.the revolution. Now he write ho is an old man and to die, and have no money. So must marry his daughter. Marta, ?whom I never see. He say she nineteen and ver' beautiful, and she meet me on boat tomorrow.' ^ "We!1., Tony, I >'ou happiness, answered Miss "Eversham, dubiously. "But after you are married, coma to see me. I want to talk to you about ?about your studies." Three days later Tony aprwnrod, smiling. , ? . "It is all ri\ Mees Eversham, ho said. "I no marry till Christmas." "How is that, Tony?" Inquired the teacher. ? _ "Well, mees, I go to the boat. Tony explained, "and there is no Marta. But instead, a fashionable young wom an ask for me by name. 'Are you Tony Satelll?" she ttBk. '1 am friend ?That Eea Marta," Said Tory. of Marta. My father have beeg es-, tate near Palemo. . Mnrta she cannot i come. She say you mus' send money, | then she come.' So I send money a Christmas, and then Marta come to me." , i Miss Eversham was still more du bious. and her anxiety on behalf of i her protege was not lessened wheir, as the weol;3 passed by, Tony's face became more and more downcast Miss Eversham rallied him on his de spondency in view of his approaching marriago, but it was not until late in the year that Tony vouchsafed an explanation. ? "It Is all gone, all my hope gone, he said, pulling a photograph out of his pocket. "I-ook, Mees Eversham. Miss Eversham studied the photo graph with dismay. It'was that of an extremely plain young woman slat ternly and gaudily attired, and the shoulders wore those'of a hunchback. "That ees Marta," said Tony. 'She is a cripple and can never stand on her feet. All her life she go so." "But, Tony," said Miss Eversham, "surely It Is not nccessary for you to marry a girl whom you have never seen, if she Is to be an invalid all her llf?." ^ "I have sent the money." said Tony, hopelessly. "She arrive tn t ree weeks." "But why. Tony?" "Her father 6ave my father during the revolntlon," said Tony. Then sud denly he clasped his hands and wept unrestalnedly. "Oh. it ees hard. Mees Eversham," he said. "1 love Juliana ' Legardl." _ Miss Eversham drew the story from him then. Juliana was the young woman who had brought him news of Marta. She had come to America to display some paintings, and had achieved great success. Already she had become something of a vogue In the world of art. Only twenty-two, she bade fair to be one of those wom an painters whom modern Italy is pro ducing in numbers. She had taken an interest In Tony, and be had fall en madly In love with her. Poor Tony! He felt that he was not worthy to kiss the ground she -walked upon. "An honest man may aspir? to trie hand of any woman." said Miss Ever sham, in a pardonable aphorism. "Tony, there is no reason why you should consider yourself bound to marry your cousin." ? "I have sent her tho money, ex plained Tony, hopelessly. "But, Tony?" "Her father save my father in the time of the revolution." Tony contin-. ued, and there was such finality in his. tone that Miss Eversham ventured no more. 'About 60 horses are blng trained, at the Washington fair plant. - s ; ? p-Kj;' ? . I It was not Juliana's fault if Tony had fallen In lovo with her. Juliana Legardl departed for Rely suddenly a couple of daye later. Miss Eversham read of her Balling In the newspapers, and looked anxiously for Tony the following evening. But be did not appoar at night school, then or at any future date. And as the days went by and no word came of him. she gradually came to abandon all expectation of ever hearing of him again. He remained In her n^Jnd, however, as the type of fidelity; his faithful brown eyes often came before her and slie would glance at her class of Ignorant Immigrants and sigh, thinking how nearly she had succeed ed in creating one genius out of the heap of raw material that passed through her hands. And then, about a year later, when she had ocased to think of T my, ex cept as an Incident of the past, she saw him at the door of the night school as she was leaving, waiting 'or "Tony!" exclaimed Miss Eversham. "Why, where have you boen all thls| time?" ? i "In, ltalv, Miss Eversham. he an swered, anil Miss Eversham looked at him In astonishment. Gono were the gaucheries of the young man whom slie hnd taught: he spoke like a gen tleman and looked like one. Uncon sciously she found herself accepting his offer of the inner side of the street. And she found, loo, that she was regarding him as one of her own class, and no longer as "raw mate rial." "And did you marry Maria, sne wanted to ask. as he escorted her through the streets to war/1 her home; but she could not bring herself to do so. The young man at her side looked so radiant, so evidently prosperous. "You "see. Miss Eversham," lie. ex plained. "when I got,homo I had a chanco of a commission for soma statuary In the town hall which at tracted tbo attention of art critics, and ?well. 1 am well-to-do now. and al most famous, In. Italy. And so "!* wife and I are on our wedding trip here, and you must meet her." "Marta?" (lashed out Jllas E\er sham. . Tony nodded. "We aro staying at the Continental," he said. "I -wonder If it is'too late? She wanted mo to bring you back tonight. Five minutes later Miss Eversham found herself in the presence of? Juliana! "Tony!" she exclaimed In bewilder ment, turning from one smiling face to tBe other. Tony was rubbing his hands ana chuckling like a schoolboy.

Dec. 31.? Manager H. T.
