M’CORMICK WAS GAME'
But Big Peter Jackson I Knocked Him Out in a Round and a Half. ‘ WORK OF THE ATHLETIC CLUBS. Amateur Ball Games—News of the Professional Leagues. The set-to between Peter Jackson, the Australian champion, and Ginger McCor mick at Cronheim’g Theatre, Hoboken, last night was witnessed by nearly three thousand people. Jack Fallon, of Brook lyn, was the referee, and Messrs. Smith and Husemeyer were timekeepers. Mc Cormick was knocked out in a very short time. He was not in condition. Sports say that he is not heavy enough, anyhow, for a big fellow like Jackson. He was to get 8100 if he could stand before Jackson for four rouuds. He was knocked out in a round and a half. Time was called at eleven o’clock. Jackson held his body back, while Mc Cormick stood erect. Both men sparred cautiously for some seconds. Jackson seemed to be somewhat shy of McCor mick. The latter led off, but failed to reach, but a moment afterward the men were at close quarters, and McCormick landed a nice blow on Jackson’s right law. This evidently rattled Jackson, and he went for McCormick hammer and tongs, landing each time. The spectators cheered McCormick. They said he was the pluckiest little fel low they ever saw. Jackson kept ham mering away on Ginger’s jaw, while “Lit tle Mac” went for his opponent’s stomach, giving him one or two solid blows there. McCormick continued to force the fight ing, but Jackson at last got in a heavy left hander on his mouth and sent him to grass. When he arose he went pell-mell again for his opponent. Most of his blows fell short, however, and even those that he did get in didn’t seem to have much effect on the Australian. Jackson rushed him back behind the scenes, when the referee ordered them out to the middle of the stuge. Then McCor mick rushed in and jabbed Jackson two or three times. When time was called Jackson didn’t seem to have been put out in the least. “Little Mac” was, however, ! winded. After a minute’s rest Mac made another rush, but was met with two blows from Jackson, delivered in quick succession. McCormick, instead of trying to protect himself, kept going for Jackson’s stomach. Mac was ilnallv forced to a corner and a heavy blow laid him low. He was not able to respond in ten seconds and Jackson was declared the winner. Monday’s Schedule.

An Incident of Life on the Prairie and in the Min ing Camp. When tho rush for the Kansas farm ing lands was at its height, and eastern farmers, tired of the red soil at home, were selling out at a sacrifice in order to join the pilgrimage to a land rumored to be literally flowing with milk and honey —where broad and productive acres could be had for the asking—Andrew Wright, an honest, practical young Granger who had spent all his life in the Mohawk valley, was taken with the western fever. lie was not wealthy in the goods of the world, but ho had a wifo and 2-year-old boy that helped to more than make up for the lack of financial resources. By shrewd bargaining he found after he had sold everything he owned that he had enough crisp bank bills in his hands to go to tho west and make a start on the new place. His objective point was Kan sas, but when almost there he was in duced by a land agent to go over into Nebraska and take a quarter section within three miles of that muddy and erratic stream dignified by the name of Platte river. Once settled, and with a three room sod house built on his claim, he started in to work with a will, and at the expira tion of two years he found himself well on the road to tho complete ownership of as fine a farm west of the red Missouri as “lay outdoors.” His one great trouble was the scarcity of farm hands in the busy season; so it was not at all surprising when one day a tramp who applied for work was taken in as almost one of tho family and looked upon as a veritable godsend by tho over worked youDg emigrant. “Tony” Williams, as the newcomer called himself, was a hard looking, un couth sort of individual, who worked with a will during tho day and at night romped with little 4-year-old Joey until the lad used to watch for his coming, and find the most pleasant hour out of the twenty-four when Tony was with him. It was rather a queer sort of friend ship, but it lasted all through the win ter, and until one spring night, when the old restless spirit came back upon him and tho farm hand packed up his little bundle and quietly stole away in the darkness. A year upuuu m iuo uiiumg uiomilw did not increase “Tony’s” financial con dition nor his appearance, either, for that matter, but it found the young farmer just so much nearer to the complete own ership of his quarter section, and at the expiration of that time the tramp turned his face to the rising sun, and by dint of sundry “lifts” and stolen rides on freight trains, found himself one fitful night treading the land he *>ad plowed some months before. It hardly seemed like the same place to him, for instead of the sod house there stood a one story frame building, and less than a hundred yards away was a big roomy barn. “I’ll jest crawl into ther barn,” solilo quized Tony, “so’s not to wake ther folks. I wonder how the little chap is and if he will be glad to see me. They’re pretty white sort of people, and I guess I’ll stick by ’em this time and take ther old man’s advice an’ make a man outer myself.” Thus satisfying his conscience at hav ing run away, he crept into the barn, and half burying himself in a pile of straw which had been left near the open door, was soon asleep. It was hours later when a lurid red glow, which lighted up the sky and heated the air for miles around, caused Tony to shift uneasily on his rough but comfortable bed and to finally open his eyes and an instant later jump to his feet with a bound. The prairie was on fire! Away off, on what seemed like the lower edge of the horizon, was a sheet of flame which had formed itself into a bar rier through which none might pass and live. Forked tongues of fire, leaping from the mass, licked at the air as if to find more food for their greedy appetite. The tall, dry grass swayed and shivered as if each particular stalk was endowed with life and was making an effort to escape a certain fate. As the tramp looked, particles of burned herbage floating down the wind fell about him and he heard distinctly the crackling of the consuming element as it ate its way through the matted growth. The grandeur of the sight stupefied him, and ho was lost in contemplation of the awful spectacle. The uneasy lowing of the cattle, and the fretful whinnying of the horses aroused in him a sense of the danger, and he instinctively turned and looked towards tne nouse. There was no sign of life. It was time for action now, and he had already lost many valuable minutes. He ran to the house and beat with both hands on the door. “Mr. Wright, the prairie’s on fire—the prairie’s on fire!” There was no answer. Time was pre cious now, and when Tony saw a spade standing up against the side of the house it seemed to him like a provi dence, and he took advantage of it. The door went in with a crash and as ho jumped through the opening he met Wright coming out of the bed room. The room was brilliantly lighted by the reflection, but not a word of recog nition was spoken. “Get the horse3," said Wright, in a low tone, and when the tramp went through the door Wrright turned back to the room. “Our only hope is the rivw.” he said to his wife, who with a white, drawn face, was hurriedly dressing Joey, but her poor, trembling, nervous fingers made little headway with the task. When Tony came with the two horses, Wright and his wife took one while the tramp held Joey in place on the other. There were three miles to ride to the river and safety, and all but the boy looked with anxious eyes at tbe line of thundering flame, while the farmer sighed os he thought of the destruction that fringe of ragged firo would do his place. But there was no time for sentiment, so away they started, leaving all but hope behind. For two miles the horses kept almost side by side, and then it began to look as if the race was not going to be an easy one for the heavy, well fed animals. Steadily the fire had gained until now, as they were almost iu sight of tbe river, a sweep of tbe wind seemed to hurl the flames at them and their throats became so parched they could hardly breathe. Tony’s horse, bearing the lighter burden, sped ahead, but the struggles of the other animal were becoming so labored that hf slacked. Wright beat with his fists at the tired beast, who, faithful enough under his double burden, tried hard tc respond by an increase of speed, but 11 was no use, for with the effort he wen1 down on his knees, throwing the twe heavily to the ground. As the woman shrieked In her down ward flight the tramp heard, and turn ing in his uncertain seat he looked ir time to see two motionless forms, the struggling horse, and then, like a tliinp of life bending to grasp its prey, th< wave of death swept over them. Everything seemed a blur to the tram; after that, for when ho opened his eyei an hour later he was lying on the oppo site side of the creek, with Joey near by watching with wondering eyes the glare of the embers on the blackened waste He remembered nothing but the goinj down to death of the farmer and hii wife, and realized the fact that he had c new burden to bear In the care of the orphan boy. When strength came back to him h( picked Joey up in his arms with a feel ing of tenderness he had never knowi before and made for the ranch of thi nearest neighbor, some miles away where he told the story and found will ing hands to help in the sad ceremony of consigning the charred remains to i decent grave. As for himself, Tony was for goinj over into the Colorado diggings, leaving the boy with the new friends, but Joey refused to be separated from his pro tector, so with a little purse donated by the big hearted farmer and with a re solve to devote himself to his charge the tramp took the orphan up into thi mines and prospected with the hundred of others for nature’s wealth. The erection of a new cabin announce! the fact that he had come to stay, am during the months which followed thi boy grew strong and hearty under hi foster father’s care and became the Ufi of the camp. As a miner, poor, lnex perienced Tony was an indifferent sue cess, although he managed to keep i sack of flour and a rasher of bacon h the provision box, and occasionally madi a barter with a wandering Jew for littli delicacies for Joey. But even this poor luck was not des tined to last, and when one night thi boy cried because he was hungry, am the tramp knew there was nothing ii the little nl.ioe to eat. he became desner ato and walked out In the cool night ai of the mountains to think what was h be done. There had been days in his life whei he had little respect for the eighth com mandment, and it was very natural then at this critical period, that his uneducat ed mind should urge him to take fron others to supply himself and the boy He tried to reason that it was righ enough under the circumstances, but hi: logic was not powerful enough, and hi put an end to the whole matter by say ing to himself as a sort of mental apol ogy: “Ef it wasn't for Joey it ’ud be diff’r ent, but he’s got to be looked after some how.” After that the provision box in Tony’i cabin was always full to overflowing and the tramp grew so extravagant as t< send to a far away city for a new sui for the boy, who, delighted at the nev prosperity, was happier than ever anc forgot entirely the pangs of hunge: which had racked his little frame. Om morning, however, the boy, who wa well on to 0 years old, woko and founc himself alone. He lay a long while wait ing for Tony and then dressed himsel and went out. It was but natural when he saw i crowd around the Red Light saloon tha he should make for that point, and hi did, calling all the while with his shril little voice for “Uncle Tony.” One of the men picked the boy up an< carried him back to the cabin, while tin rest were gathered about the prostrati figure of a man which lay partly proppei up by a folded blanket in front of tin saloon. The man on the ground wa saying in a weak, thin voice: “I alius tried to do ther squar thing pards, although I hev made some slip in my life. I don’t mind going hungr myself, for that’s nothing new, but couldn’t see the kid want, and I had ti do somethin’." After a brief pause he continued, al though in a fainter voice: “I don’t blame Jim for pullin’ on me cuz I admit I was in his place to do him but he done me. I know I’m going fas now, but, pards, look after ther kid He aint got nobody now, and I done the best I" The rest was indistinct, and when thi convulsive twitch which had stopped th sentence enaea, lony was aeaa. He had been as faithful to his trust a he knew how, but hits lifo had been thi price of his sin. It was a long time before Joey becami reconciled to have any one else taki Tony’s place, but the griefs of childhocx are not lasting, and it was not until late; years that the boy fully realized the sad ness of his early lifo.
