I As August 14 approaches, dis
patches from Earbin Springs
and San Francisco are multiply
ing rapidly, for advertising pur
poses. The excitement will soon
iiave to be stirred up in the East
in order to make it profitable to
the pugilits, as it requires near
ly a week for travelers to get to
San Francisco from the Atlantic
coast and nearly faur days to
reach the ringside from Chicago.
But the Pacific coast has become
so well settled up, and the mixed
population is of a generally
sporty turn, SQ the attendance
at the fistic battle will probably
be large, whether many come
irom the east or not.
Latest accounts from the train
ing quarters are to the effect
that Jeffries and Corbett are
assiduously hardening their
ilesh and strengthening their
muscles. Corbett has been do
ing most of the bragging, but of
late there have been quite as
loud and enthusiastic counter
claims from the Jeffries train
ing quarters. Jeffries looks like
an ox in comparison with Corbett,
it is said, and if his bulk does not
represent a large share of flab
biness he ought, to stand up
against anything Corbett can
throw at him in the way of fists.
On the other hand, the cham
pion looks too heavy to be
sprightly, and if Corbett can
dance away from him after dej
livering his blows he may be able
to outlast the twenty rounds and
win the fight on points.
It would be unsatisfactory,
however, to have the fight de
cided on points, as there would
be a referee's war from the
start- Therefore, the "general
public," which is willing to en
dure pugilists for a short time
occasionally, for the sake of
change, would be pleased to have
a kuock-out, because of the en
suing quiet.
says that this fall he will build a
$500,000 plant, which, when
placed in working order, will con
vert silver into gold at the rate
of tens of thousands of dollars a
day. From a dollar's worth of
silver he expects to make 40
worth of gold, that's about as
good as investing in. Beltrami

The land forces alone of Europe
number "on the war Sooting" 25,000-
000 men. Even Spain has an army
larger than our own.
Standing side by side 25,000,000 men
would make a continuous line from
Calais across Europe and Asia to Ber

Parading up Broadway at the usual
pace, infantry in flies of twenty, cav

On the continent soldiers are carried

cars we should call them. To mobil
ize these men at once would take 625,-

At a mile headway the trains would

Their Love of Liberty Being Evinced
in Many Ways.
The Slavic women of Europe are
Just now occupying much attention by
the part they are taking in national
affairs. The University of St. Peters
burg was closed because of the trou
bles of women medical students who
objected to the severity of the exami
nations. Now comes the report that
the Prussian government has arrested
a large number of Polish women in
Qnesen, charging them with conspir
acy. In that city was a large women's
club, formed for the purpose of study
ing Polish literature and history. The
police have discovered, or think they
have discovered, that the club is real
ly but a cloak for political intrigue
which threatened much harm to Prus
sian intsrests.
Enthralled the Congregation.
It is related that a stranger once en
tered a cathedral in Sicily and begged
to be'allowed to try the organ, which,
was new and a very fine instrument
that even the organist did not under
stand. With some reluctance the or
ganist allowed the stranger to play,
and soon the cathedral was filled with
sounds that its walls had never heard
before. As the stranger played, pull
ing out stops never before, combined,
and working slowly up to the full
organ, the cathedral filled, and it was
not until a large congregation had
wondered at his gift that the stranger
told his name. He was Dom Lorenzo
Perosi, the young priest composer,
whose latest oratorio, "Leo," was re
cently performed at the Vatican dur
ing the celebration of the Pope's jubi
A Question of Identity.
Thompson and Rogers, two married
men, wandering home late one night,
stopped at what Thompson supposed
to be his residence, but which Rogers
insisted was his own house. Thompson
rang the bell lustily soon a window
was opened and a lady inquired what
was wanted. "Madam," inquired Mr.
Thompson, "isn't this Mr. T-Thomp
son's house?" "No," replied the lady,
"this is the residence of Mr. Rogers."
"Well," exclaimed Thompson, "Mrs.
T-Thompsonbeg your pardonMrs.
Rogers, won't you just step down to
the door and pick out Rogers, for
Thompson wants to go home."
Weather Signs.
The color of the sky at particular
times affords a wonderfully good guide
to the weather to be expected within
the coming twenty-four hours. Not
only does a rosy sunset presage good
weather and a ruddy sunset bad
weather, but a bright yellow sky in
the evening indicates wind a pale
yellow, rain. If in the morning the
sky is of a neutral gray color, the
indications for a good day may be
considered favorable. Generally
speaking, it may be said that any
deep or unusual hue in summer be
tokens either wind or rain.
Descendant of Robert Burns.
The only direct descendant of Rob
ern Burns is a clerk in a Chicago
shipping office. He is Robert Burns
Hutchinson, and hia descent from the
poet is unquestioned. His mother,
Sarah Burns, was a daughter of Lieu
tenant Colonel James Glencairn Burns,
the third son of Robert Burns and
Jean Armour. Mr. Hutchinson will be
48 this year. He was born at Chelten
ham, but crossed the water in 1891,
when he married Miss Mabel Burnand.
Their little daughter. Dorothea Burns
Hutchinson, is the next in the straight
line from the poet.
A Recipe for Jokes.
Mother is a writer of jokes, being
very successful in disposing of those
in which her own children pose as the
heroes. One day a literary friend,
who is a wife but not a mother, said
to her: "I wish I could write jokes
that would find a market as readily as
do yours!" Up spoke the hero of
most of mother's witticisms. "I'll tell
you how, Mrs. Sims: You get some
children, paper, envelopes, stamps,
and ask your husband to buy a type
writer! That's all that mamma did!"
Poplar a Lightning-Conductor.
A careful examination of the trees
that are struck by lightning shows
that over half of them are poplar.
From this fact scientists conclude that
the poplar has some value as a con
ductor of lightning.
Lives Saved by Science.
The number of deaths each year in
London was, 150 years ago, fifty-one a
thousand. In 1820 it was twenty-nine
a thousand, and it now is about eight
