Caimdtanteam the first year that I w a managing the ale leaves.
,1 twe-P-pe ef Toronto- he G.ehe an- 'W .l'Sle
rhaU aaa ahowed their rivalry la the most treaaa fah!ea. Finally the
hostility between them settled .vn.to belM,!l, ad they arranged for a
great aaH d."ate game, te be played at 1-J.aa park, a favorite Sanday re
sort of the Toronto people, with teams limited lely te the employe, of the
office, aad with myself a Hmplre. the Toronto elab having a day off. Some
game. too. JedgtaK by" the pbe Interest delayed la Toronto, where ex
rttcmeat v,a, t fe,er heat, aad even cltteea aeemed to hare M. money
up oa obc eliri or the other.
-Kaeh elab had oat It cohort dal ly taking tarns la practicing at my
ballyard. and they had ome fearfal aad woadcrful maffer, on parade. The
Morid. however, seemed to ha.e a shade the best of It especially In the bat
ting, and the ere of the combat was at haad, with betting 3 to 1 oa the World
arra,. At this jaawurc. the Globe people dlscover-d a new Moses to lead
them- oat of their despondency a llneatype man. aenly arrUed from Eng
land. He brought with him credentials shewing that he had been one of the
best cricket Mmn la England, and & eel-red that he would Hke to go Into
this blooming American game. They t ook him oat for practice, and, to the
Intense delight ef the crowd, he drove every ball that was thrown him cjer
over the fcaee or two miles down the field. It was evident that Mr. S"h
man was a great nataral slagger, aad the Globes decided to pat him In right
field, tmst te his batting, aad pray th at no flies would come his way.
"All Toronto torned oat to the si eat srame, and the excitement was tre
mendoas as the Worlds, first at bat. banged oat three ran, mainly on er
rors. The Globes took their Inning, lit hard on the ball, and soon had the
bases fnll. To men pat ap pep files, and then the great Englishman strode
to bat amid frantic yells from stand and bleachers. The second ball came
across knee-hlEh and the bat fairly crashed as the Briton pnt aU his
fctrength open the wood. BHpp went the ball It soared on high, It pasied
ont over the center fielder's head, an d It rolled way down the lane, while
three mas came la, and the Globe partisans shrieked for Joy.
lad "te KBgWshmaa, carrying his bat, rashed ont, not to first base, bat
to the pitcher's slab! Here, he whacked his bat sharply on the slab, and
then galloped baek to the heme plate. He pounded the plate with his bat,
then rushed oat again to the pltchlag slab. After once mere hitting this,
he sprinted baek to the home plate, and was thumping It When the ball came
1b from deep eeater; the second baseman got It, threw It to first, and, under
the rules, I had both to call the Bngllshmnn out, and to declare that none of
the runs he drove la coasted, as the third oh was made on a ground ball
throws to first ahead of the batsman! The good Englishman simply Im
agined that raas eeaated the same as 1b that dear old came of cricket, aad
was going ahead with what he theag ht was the star performance of the sea
son. The game? Oh, yes the Worlds won ont. 12 to S won it by Just the
margin of the fear rnns that the Englishman's hit oaght to have collected."

After a very heated argument Alex

Foaght Like AVI Id Cats.
The best bout of the night was be
tween Kid Pajo and Billy Hart It was
a scheduled six round affair and was
announced for the "bantam title of
Texas." Each youngster swung all the
way from his heels and mixed-It every
minute. Pajo was' in the Ufetter condi
tion, and although Hart was as game
as they make 'em he was getting de
cldeded the worst of it during the
fourth round, Pajo unwinding upper cuts
with clock like precision, and the ref
eree stopped the match. After the bout
it was found that Hart had badly
sprained his wrist and was fighting on
his heart only.
Pajo has lots of steam and clever
ness and the fans would like to see
this bird matched with some other
'banty" or rematched with Hart on
condition that the latter put himself
in better trim.
Kid Lansford has improved. The last
time he met Mitchell he looked like the
merest novitiate. Last night he gave
a pretty fair account of himself and if
he would forget his grin and cut loose
at full speed for four rounds he aad
Mitchell would frame up fine for a
As it was last night, Mitchell was, as
usual, too clever. Lansford walloped
him on his bruised beak and the gore
spurted about in professional style.
Mitchell was the personification of
good nature, however, and he nursed
Lansford through the four rounds
using his cleverness where it would
show to the greatest advantage.
Soldier Boys on Program.
Kill rvt-r t Mw VnrV and Jut Ttn-
land, of Cincinnati, fought rather slow

who is built like a young bull. It was
his first match in El Paso, and he sort
of held 'back. It was the opinion of the
ring siders that had he tore loose on
Bound, as he seemed capable of doing,
he would have been an easy winner. As
it was Boland landed the clean blows
and for the an old timer fought ex
cellently. The wrestling match between Chas.
Gordon and T. H. Flint, both of Fort
Bliss, bad the crowd standing in their
chairs. They went at it in catapultic
fashion and after eight minutes of
work Flint got the fall on what was
announced as a half Nelson and grape
vine hold. ,
It is planned to hold another pro
gram at an early date.

You Can Not Tell By A Man's Look

LL a man needs nowadays to be
a great fighter is to wear a 12

few nights ago when thick-limbed
Moha walloped the Westchester
Farmer. . i.t
Several nights later the seme tight
bug "held an adjacent seat when Gib
bons, light lean and sinewy, ham
mered Jeff Smith all over the ring.
"I take it all back." he said, leaning
over my way. "What a fighter needs
Is a pair of fast, thin legs, and a long

Paradoxes of the Gnrae.
An ideal fighter should be strongly
and symmetrically built from neck to
heels. Perhaps his development about
the shoulders should be a little exag
gerated. He should have strong legs
and arms and a broad, muscular back,
big forearm and strong fists. He
should have a world of speed, stam
ina unlimited and the strength or
a weight thrower, the courage of a
bear, the aggressiveness of a bulldog,
the patience of Job. And he might have
all of these things and be whipped by a
man of half his slxe. .... . ..,.,
Strongly and symmetrically buiitj
Well, where did that description fit Bob
Fitsslmmons. the greatest fighter, nor
barring any weight, that the ring has
known within tne memory of living
man? Bob had the thinnest legs that
ever carried a champion. His hips were
narrow, his body was thin. Hs shoul
ders looked big only because they were
big In proportion to tfie rest of his
phsique- He was topheavy. and
that he didn't hae unusually larce
arms or necs:. His axon were ve.y

Ruhlin and scores of other men bigger
and stronger than himself.

As for the Ideal fighting face what
is it like Think over a few of the
famous fighters. There was Fitxsim

head as bald as an egg a small head
set on a moderately thin neck and a
retreating chin. Palzer"s chin. Moha's

But Bat Nelson hasn't a protru.i.ng
chin. Jimmy Britt's Jaw did not tick

rounded chin. Most of them haie wide
Jaws. The wide Jaw. and not the jaw
that is thrust out aggressively, is the
fighting jaw. because, being well an
gled, it can resist the strain of a hard
punch better than a long, narrow Jaw.
Tommy Murphy is often said to have a
"weak chin," because his sticks out, but
his jaw Is wide as well as long, and
anything but weak. Jeffries had a
wonderful jaw for taking punches, be
cause it was wide and heavy. Johnson
has a ver wide jaw. So have Lang
foid Walcott and almost all of the ne
gro fighte' Still, you can't tell by
the Jaw. Frank Ootch, the wrestler,
had an unusually wide. Heavy jaw.
Frank tried to be a fighter. He failed
because the slightest tap on the chin
knocked him groggy, and a gppd mid
dleweight like Gibbons could have
knocked him out at any time without
