Thrilling and Paliiotic.N THE v W7 MA A page from tlio memorable liis- of Gone Leo Tonight and Tuesday Only price and there Is no place where this ran bo obtained more satisfactorily than in the upper peninsula of Michi gan. According to a recent issuo of the World's Work, "we are in a good deal of danger of deterrent If not disas trous land speculation In many parts of the country. Go where you will, and you hear of a'bnormal increases of land prices. City land, town land, all t hare in this rise." Wcrk Conservatively. It Is to avoid this very thing that the people of the upper peninsula de sire. They want the upper peninsula settled aiid they want the land sold, but It will be done in a conservative manner. There are no lands in the country that can 'be 'bought as cheap ly a In the upper peninsula of Mich igan. If one fhould suggest that it tan be purchased from to $23 an acre, people in Illinois, Indiana and Iowa, where the rrice of land reaches from $100 to $2")0 an acre, would le amazed and would shake their heads in unbelief. Because the lands In these states have Ijeen settled and are now occu pied, they cannot realize that these prices can prevail in any other section of the country. Kven if they did ac cept tho statement that land is sell ing in this part of the country so cheaply, they would 'pass it up with the thought that it did not amount to much for agricultural purposes. Prove Lands are Good. The people of the upper peninsula know that these lands are Just us good as those in the prairie states and to some extent better, and this summer they are going to prove it to them. When the exhibitions of the prod ucts of the upper peninsula are shown at the land show in Chicago people who heretofore have been in Ignorance of such a section of the country as the upper peninsula of Michigan will at first wonder, then Investigate, all of It ending with the resolve to visit Mackinac. Sell Out and Settle Here. Many people who have a few acren of land In other states which they can sell for $100 or more per acre will ell out and come to the upper penln sula, where from Ave to twenty times as much laml. can be purchased with the money obtained from selling the few acres at home. It will only be a question of time until the upper peninsula will be ipop- ulated as thickly as any portion of Illinois, Indiana, Ohio or some of the other states that have an average of several people to the square mile. trt rw -r-t SPORTING NEWS OP THE WORLD GOOD WRESTLING AT THE V.

WHO WILL BE CHAMPION? Ordemftnn'a defeat by Cutler prob ably means a meeting between Wes terguard and the former Mlnnejota man. There Is considerable specula tion at the present time as to the Am erican champion. There Is really no champion outside of Ootch. when you come down to the curb and cut out all the flowery Persiflage. Following the announcement by Hugh Chalmers that he will give a Chalmers "30" cur to each of two players, one in the National league, and one In the American league, who do the most to help their teams, Con nie Mack, manager .of the world's champion Athletics, has telegraphed Mr. Chalmers as follows: "Congratulations on your liberality and enterprise In offering automobile to the most valuable ball player In each league. The new plan will not cause Individual playing and is en tirely unobjectionable. I have talked to some of our star players and they will try hard to bo licensed-tag pur chasers at the end of next season. Chalmers and champions is a good pair to draw to." Mack has voiced the sentiment of the leading men in major league base ball. Mr. Chalmers' proposition to have the awards to the most valuable man In each league made by a com mittee of newspaper men, removes the only possible objection to giving priz es for baseball prowess. According to tho new plan a number of the most skilled baseball critics In the country will decide, not the ability of a player In any one department, but his gener al usefulness in all departments. The onlyway a man can wlu a' Chalmers "30" in 1911 is to play Just the best ball he knows how all the time. Awarding the prizes in this way ought to do . great deal to stimulate loyalty and whole-hearted effort among our major-league stars. siz1.

RAMSDELL OUT OF IT. TWO HANDED FIGHTER. Tommy Burns Used Right Better Than His Left. Some of tho champions could not use a left with the same telling effect as their right hand. Tommy Burns, who fought a dozen or more fights In the copper country under the name of Noah Brusso, had a wicked right hand. He could knock his oppenent out with out drawing back to put force behind it. Joe Gans was another who could win a battle In a hurry by getting about a two-inch leeway from his op ponent's Jaw. Gans was a two-handed fighter. His left hand was as treach erous as his right. A majority of knockouts credited to Jim Jeffries were from his left hand. This was only natural, since Jeffries was a southpaw and favored the port side punch. Pennsylvania Sprinter Has Row With the School Faculty. Philadelphia, Ta., Feb. 13.
