Xow that Dempsey is giving exhibitions at Atlantic City, many enthusiasts of the gentler sex have
flocked there to see him perform. Dempsey usually takes a plunge into the dee every day, and the girls are

giving an exhibition of what they have learned from the champion for the benefit of the camera man. It is well
to say the "censor" passed on the bathing suits.

The coming Dem-psey-Carpentier

in which the championship passed
along to the present defender.
The fir;-t of the modern clashes of

July 7, 1882, at Mississippi City, just
across the Louisiana, line from Xew

Sullivan, born in Boston, weighed

The Irishman's left jaw had ibeen
fbroken in two places by Sullivan's
smashes.
Paddy staggered to his dressing
quarters to discover that while he
had been takrng a sound thrashing,
scene rascals had stolen all of his
clothes and the ?300 they contained.
He was flat broke, for the winner
got the entire purse.

"The boys were out in full force,"
said a newspaiper account of the

free as waiter, for the winnings were

HITTING THE
7 A I

With Geo. E. Firstbrook
Baseball averages do not always make the best of players. This is evi
dent in the flashy brand of baseball being uncorked by Kingdon, the Bridge
port shortstop. On figures Kingdon looks like a selling platter, but In a
grame he sparkles with the glitter of a million dollars on a pile of twentyi
dollar gold pieces.
Baseball records show that KLinRtlon's lxvttinjr average with the
PortIai:I tcun of the Pacific Coast ijcagTiei was hat .19ft in ttie 129
pf.mes in which he participated, while he had a fielding mark of
.909.
Kingdon by his brilliant playing in the recent home games has floated
into the affections of local fans. He's a chap who will break up many games
by his timely batting, although he may not pile up a clouting average of
.300. He's fast and full of "pep," fully equal to the sensational and spec
tacular Gonzales of the Springfield Ponies It is .not amiss to label him the
peer of Kasiern League shortstops.
Ring don may yvt blossom into a hatter of the ravage type,
The case of JJogcrs Ifcomsljy, champion hatter of the N ational Uoagne
and first baseman of the St. ZjouIs Nationals, is recalled.
It is only a few years ago that Miller Hoggins, then with the Cards,
"spotted" Hornsby playing on the Dennison team in the Texas-OklaJioma
League. At the time 1 1 ornsby was only hitting around the .220 mark, but
Huggins knew he had the big league stuff in his system, with the result that
Hornsby has developed into one of the stars oX the navtional sport.
Remembering the case of Hornsby, just glance at the major
league scores a few years hence and see what Kingdon is doing;
If he continues his present fast clip a rosy future awaits; 'him.
During his expectant wait for reinstatement action at the hands of
Judge Londis Benny K-auff will have an opportunity to ponder over his
deportment while in the limelight. Benny, no doubt, has learned his lessoi
Yale, by handing a defeat to Holy Cross on the -diamond, has
furnished a bit of consolation for the supporters of the Blue dia
