IGONBOAT SMITH SORRY RELIC
Cf WHITE HOPE Oil'S
It) If. ('. Hniiiilton.
(I'nlted l'ress Staff Correspondent.) .
NKW YORK. Dec. JO.—Gunboat j
Smith, survival of that dim, dark age
when white hopes were abfoad in the
land, is through. Don’t let anyone
bay he isn't. The old ship, battle
scarred in many an encounter, hook
ed up a few nights ago with Frank
Moran, who has been through for
some time, and he was hard put to it
to hold his own.
The gunner, who hail beaten
Champion Jess Willard, who fought
Ueorfce Carpentier to a'standstill and
lost on a foul, who beat Sam Lang
ford once, only to lose in another en
counter with the dusky son of swat,
has passed from among the lordly
race that once pried dollars from a
suffering public. There will be ho
more mobs at' New York club doors
to see the gunner take his medicine.
The mob got plenty when it ogw the
gunner reeling under a bombard
bardment from Moran’s guns.
Frank Moran was handed about
as nifty a trimming as any man
should wnt to see when he met Jack
Dillon lust summer. Smith once
gave Dillon quite an interesting lit
tlo session. But Smith looked aw
fully bad in the ring with Moran.
He gave the impression of being
ready to retire to the farm or the
battleship for the rest of his life.
Tile gunner hua been a good old
booiv, too. He baa fought about ev
ery good white heavyweight since
the days of James J. Jeffries, and
most of the time he v.as on the right
side of the ledger.
It was the merest chance that
beat him out of a crack at Champion
Jack Johnson when he took a smash
at George Carpentier when the ido!
t f France was down. That really
, was the last good fight he ever took
part in. Since then he has rapidly
been on the skid;. The big crash
was the only thing wanting and it
'came in the Moran battle.

The celebrated 20 mule tpatn haul

started from San Bernardino. Cal.,
on its coast to coast tour. The tour
will cover a period of about four
(years and this city will bo visited.
The borax wagons each weigh 8,000
pounds and have a capacity of 30,
5 U00 pounds. The front wheels are
' five and the rear wheels seven fec-t
; high, the hubs are eighteen Inches
• n diameter, the tires eight Inches
vide and one inch thick, and the
I wagon bed* are sixteen feet long,
four feet wide and six feet deep.
The twenty mules are driven with
i:i “Jerk line.’’ A strong steady pull
means turn to the right and a seri s
of Jerks moan turn to the left. Ti e
moles are trained ^nonths in ad van. e
,ind each one responds to his own

of borax was done almost entirelv
with twenty mule team* but the
building of railroads eliminated
(these mammoth teams. As there are
very few of them in existence today,

a great deal of time will be con

mark in existence. Housewives j
throughout Texas have seen this j
brand in their kitchen for several
generations, and now they will see
it as*a living, moving actuality. There
