Spotting News In the opinion of Charley White, the old-time referee and pugilistic expert, the coming battle between James Ed ward Britt and Jabez White, England's best lightweight, will be one of the best ring engagements seen in years, and, on his own ground, the American should win after the hardest engage ment of his career. Here is what White has to say: By Charley White. NEW YORK, April 16.—When Ja bez White fights Jimmy Britt it will be virtually for the lightweight cham pionship of the World. A thousand men have asked me to p ! ck the winner, but lam free to con fess the task is too much for me. Fighting on his native soil will give Britt a shade of advantage, but only a shade, and the men who talk about Britt looking for easy money in tak ing on the champion of England had better study the public form of the fighters. Both Fierce Fighters. Britt's record and his abilit'es are well known to American fighters. Ja bez White is recognized at his weight, as one of the best men that England ever produced. I saw him beat our own "Spike" Sullivan, one of the strongest, gamest, fiercest men in the business, and I must say that I have great respect for this pale young Eng lishman. Looks Like McCoy. When Jabez White strips in the ring the people of San Francisco will be surprised. He looks like a small Kid McCoy, but very much paler. His skin is dead white, his hair l'ght brown, his eyes large and prominent and very blue. In fact, they look like the eyes of a fashionable tenor until be begins to fight. Then they blaze all right. In buiid White has the same coffin-chest and long, lanky limbs as McCoy. You can't see any muscles to speak of on either arms or legs; yet somewhere in that long body he has the power to hit a fellow that will drop any man it lands on. Has Studied the Game. Like all boxers not of the slugging type, Jabez White has always been a hard student of the game. His great specialty is a rattling good defense. Between fights he doesn't spend his time drinking and telling people how great he is. Instead of that he takes GIRL BAFFLES THE SCIENTISTS. Develops Ten Personalities in Twenty Months—All Entirely Separate. LONDON, April 17.—An astonishing case of a girl possessing ten separate and distinct personalities within twen ty months is being much discussed in medical circles. The girl was the patient of Doctor Albert Wilson, and so remarkable was the case that Doctor Wilson laid it be fore the committee of the Medico- Psychological association. Many of the members of the body were at first skep tical, agreeing that the manifestations were undoubtedly genuine, but they were unable to offer any explanation of the occurrence. Doctor Wilson also reported the case to the Phychical Research society, who have now published its deta ! ls in their proceedings. Girl's History. In April, 1895, the girl who was then under 13 years of age, and indifferent ly educated, had an attack of influen za. After remaining in bed for ten days, she went out into the cold air and suffered a relapse. Within the Text two days she was on the point of death, but gradually recovered her strength. There then began to appear in succession ten personalities, the le.st one of which occurred a year and e;ght months after the first, and took the form of blindness and imbecility. Now, at the age of 22, she is in good health, the best of her personalities that showed itself having been edu cated and developed. The personalities manifested them selves as follows: First personality April, 1895, acute mania, intense fear, with blindness and illusions as to the presence of snakes and craving for oranges and lemonade. Second personality, about a month later, a simple child with reversed ideas as to writing and speaking. She re pudiated her name, but would respond on being referred to as "a thing." Third persolanity, July, 1895, physi cal health improved. She now became \ery passionate, attempting to eat her clothes. She could read and write, though unable to do so when possessed of personality No. 2. Fourth personality, in August, 1895, she became a deaf-mute, and failed to hear loud noises close to her ears, tut could speak in deaf-and-dumb language. Things Reversed. In her fiifth personality, December, 1895, she again reversed things, called fciack white and thin people fat. She spelled backwards, but wrote forwards. She believed she was 3 days old, but care of his health and keeps looking out for chances to improve his style. Therefore, he went out of his way to box with all the best Americans who visited England, such as Kid Lavigne. Eddie Connolly, Dick O'Brien, Mike Seers, "Mysterious BMly" Smith and little Eddy Curry. Has Fast Gait. From these men White learned about tbe fast, rushing, slugging American style of fighting. He worked up his defense so that he could do his share of the punishing. The result of his careful study appeared when he fought "Spike" Sulivan at 132 pounds before the National Sporting club, in London, in coronation week, 1902. I saw that fight. "Spike" Sullivan was not champion of America, of course, but he was one of our strongest, ruggedest men, fast and aggressive, and as plucky as you'll find in all the world. Sullivan went at White from the start. He rushed him all over the ring, but the nearest he could get to the pale Englishman was to meet his left fist. Once in a while that staggered "Spike," but he always rallied in a moment and went after White as fast as ever. Britt Is Good Man. It may seem unnecessary to recall the abilities of Britt, yet after show ing what s formidable fellow the Eng lishman is I want to go on record as saying that Jimmy Britt is one of the best lightweights since Jack McAuliffe was champion. Jack was his superior only in generalship, coolness and the matter of timing his punches so as to meet the enemy coming in, which, of course, made the blows hurt twice as much. But in this battle with Jabez White Britt will meet new conditions. Frank Erne, Eddie Hanlon, Young Corbett and Battling Nelson all carried the battle to him. White won't. Britt will find White away back be hind taht long defense of his, always alert, cool, ready to pounce on an opening the moment it shows, yet ro good at blocking and so fast on his feet that it is almost impossible to hit him effectively. To sum up—these men are the greatest lightweights of England and America, and the one who is fighting at home has a slight advantage. But, oh, what a battle it will be! understood everything that was going on around her. She was paralyzed in the legs at this stage, but her condition changed. In an instant she leaped from her bed, ran upstairs, where she threw herself to the floor and revolved on her back and shoulders. She also rested on her head and attempted to walk up the walls. A few days later she was normal again. ' ' The sixth personality was in May, 1896, when she appeared as a sweet child, but totally Ignorant of spelling, reading and writing. This is the per sonality that is now being developed satisfactorily. In the seventh personality that of June, 1896, she remembered clearly her early childhood, but not her illness, and subsequent period. This stage lasted a fortnight. The eighth personality in June, 1896, came with a fit of conoubions and a complete loss of memory. The patient said she had been born the day be lore. She called her father Tom and her mother Mary. It lasted three days. In the ninth personality, October. 1596, the transition came gradually. Fits of temper were noticed; she talked like a young infant and could not walk, tut she could speak a little French, of which language she was quite ignorant in the normal period. The tenth personality, December, 1596, was a blind and imbecile stage. NOTICE TO CONTRACTORS.

Eighteen to two was the way the score stood Sunday afternoon after the Fruit Pickers and the Barley Growers finished the ball game at the new ball park, with the largest number standing to the credit of the Walla Walla team. There was a good sized crowd present and notwithstanding the game was one sided from the start there was enough heavy hitting done by the Fruit Pick ers to keep the fans enthusiastic. Bivens, the colored man who pitched for the Ninth Cavalry team last year, was in the box for the Dayton team and when he was forced to retire at the end of the sixth inning 15 safe ones had been made off his delivery. He gave way to Leonard who was touched up for four hits. McGucken did the twirling for Walla Walla and held his opponents down to four safe ones. To "Curley" Thompson fell the credit of getting the first home run of ihe season, but before the game was over Fisher had rapped out one that went over the left field fence for four hags.
