Croekey Boyle defeated Andy Rambo, Frank Farley and Eugene Rowan fought a draw, Fred Woods defeated Tom Beck with, Joe Dougherty and Young Smyrna of Chester boxed a draw that was full of ginger. The management of the new Tulane Athletic Club, of New Orleans, arc in hard luck. First they had a fatality in their arena, and now the match bet ween Kid McPartland and Jack Everhardt lias been declared off on account of Jack be ing seized with yellow fever. The man agement lias been indiscreet in trying to pull off boxing matches during the prev alence of an epidemic of fever. McPart land and his Northern companions are worse, for they were foolhardy in going South at this time. They will be fortu nate indeed if they escape with their lives. What a bigoted chump "Macon Mc Cormick must be. He is the only man in America who don't know that Fitz simmons bested Corbett. Can it be that, he is on Vera's pay roll?

Honest John Kelly will pull off the tight in Montreal, on November 19. The \\ arren Football team, through its manager, A. W. helak, lias been trying for a number of years to get a game with the strong West Chester team. TJu* manager of the West Chester team wrote Mr. Selak that they would play the first game with the Warren at West ( hester if they would pay their own expenses and receive none ot the gate receipts, and they would come down here on the same terms. This looked like a flim-flam, awl the Wairen management wanted each team to post a forfeit with some response hie person. The West Chester team agreed to a 825 forfeit, but that is an other foxy move of'the West Chesters' manager, for if the Warren goes to West i Chester they do not get a cent, and the other team gets it all, and they can easily afford to lose the forfeit by not coming | here to play tlie return game. If the manager of the West Chester team means business let him post a forfeit of 8200 in j responsible bands, anil the Warren will j do the same. Then the people of W il- j nnngton and West Chester will see a , gamethat they have always wanted to! Fool Imll see. The Killikiniek fontlwll team, com - 1 posed of Germans, will line up agiiinst j the strong Ariel team at the Kiverview j grounds on Thursday next.

Frank Starbitck Imp gone to Lewisburg, Pa., where he will live in retirement for while at least. The suspension placed on the conqueror of the groat Mich oel still stands, and until it is raised the middle-distance champion ride on road or track, so he might just as well live easy as to be spending money and working hard in training. It is probable that the new match with Michael can not for Thanksgiving Day will be declared off. E. I. Rogers of New Castle has the dis tinction of owning the first bicycle bought in the United States. Tlie bicycle war is on between chain and cliainless wheel makers. The chain wheel people assert the other kind of wheel is no good, and the chainless people say, behold, it. is ! Wait till the public get hold of them and then we will know which is which.

In ' His Last TaleJHe Clainisjjto Have jBe.-n Slalilied^aud Robbed by Fellow Ho boes in a Car. Some queer things happen in the West Yard sometimes and railroad men are used to them, andean usually guess pretty close as to the cause. Last night however, produced a mystery. About half past 10 o'clock a man was noticed staggering about the yard, and as Be seemed in a fair way to be injured by Some of the trains that dodge incessantly up and down the many tracks, the men investigated. They found him bleeding from numerous cuts and stabs[and other wise cruelty mangled, lie was in a piti able condition, but refused to give his name or any information regarding him self, and accounted for his injuries by saying that he had fallen off a train. He did lint want to be helped, but seeing his conditioiijitjwus.thought best Jto bring him to tiny city, and hciwas*accord inglv put aboard a shifter and.brouglit to the P., W. &jB. depot. Tlie officers of the patrol were notified and took him to tlie Delawnre^II ospital. According to the story lie told the offi cers his name was James Devine, of 28 South street* Brooklyn. He came in on a south-bound freight about 8 o'clock, in company with five other men. He claims that he does not know them, and says that, finding that he had some money in his possession, they tried to force him to give it up. He resisted, and in tlie melee he was cut several times. He was finally worsted and robbed of $2-4 which lie claims to have had, and pitched out of tlie car in the West Yard. His story may or may not be true. The general impression among the rail road men seems to be that lie did not tell the truth. It is certain that his injuries could never have resulted from falling ofi train, unless he fell on the points of two or 4 ,rte knIve8- 1 1B left arl11 ™ gashed am * eut 11 terrible manner, and a gap ing wound extended diagonally across tl his left breast.
