We have had Many differing impressions of Siki the Man and Siki the Boxer. Here is a fresh one from a san Francisco newspaper usually Well informed on sporting. It is new and it paints the senegalese in picturesque terms a Savage with a veneer of French polish. J a sporting Man who knows Lais Phal otherwise battling Siki the French senegalese says that his Nom de Guerre battling Siki tells nothing. The appellation of the singular senegalese fits him like a tailor made garment. He is a queer admixture of the boy and the Man of the Stone age and the twentieth Century of Sav Agness and civilisation. You read of him of his exploits and escapades and you expect to meet a Semi Savage. You see a Semi Savage when you first look at him. Then come introductions and a Surprise. The Jungle fairs away before the boulevards. You find the Blac fellow from Senegal above the Ordinary intelligence. He discourses interestingly and understanding on Many subjects showing at All times a Continental Courtesy and polish. A raconteur. You find him considerable of a Ian Guist speaking French fluently and having a smattering of English German. Spanish italian dutch turkish and arabic. He is an interesting conversationalist and a splendid raconteur. His sense of humor is especially prominent. Yet when you study him closely you see he is showing Only the superficial that he is covering his real self with a veneer. Yon know you will not have to scratch very deep to find the Savage. But the Savage Ness barbarity which Siki keeps bottled up before you is of the schoolyard More than the Jungle. There is nothing vicious or particularly harmful about it. A Boyish Chap. He has a Boyish dislike of restraint rules irk him training bores him he wants to sing dance play. Like a youngster in a preparatory school he s will to work and study but he finds it easier to put his. Mind on horseplay than he does on work and boy swy he chooses the easiest Way. Young Choc Ful of health arid vitality boy All Over yet his own Boss it is Only natural that at times he should throw restraint to the winds and raise cain.". What Siki needs More than anything else is a father. No manager will tame him. No manager unless he thoroughly understands his child like protege governs him with heart As Well As brain and with that parental combination of sternness and kindness. Siki is a great boy and has to 1be handled As such. Siki Doft de his coat some weeks Back to show his muscular development. The senegalese scrapper has the largest pair of biceps we Ever have seen. That Means nothing but he also has a wonder Fui set of hitting Muscles. Well muscled Back. The layer of cords and sinews that lie just under and Back of the armpits bulge out like the Crown of a Derby hat. The Muscles Lay in Mounds across Back and shoulders. His forearms Are Large and Well developed. He is by coned and has a Good pair it he is not As Stocky As he looks tapers Down to a narrow Waist and clean Racehorse limbs. He has that build which generally denotes great natural Speed and agility coupled with tremendous strength. One who saw Siki whip Carpentiei in Paris and who read the american newspaper accounts of Siki s form and methods of milling in his training bouts at Summit n.j., says Siki must have been under cover in those training bouts before the newspaper men at Summit. He certainly did not Box in his usual style which is a most Peculiar on consisting of weird swaying crouches when he bends almost to the floor Only to suddenly Spring into the air lashing out with both hands. Style born of Jungle. It. There is nothing orthodox about his boxing. He has a style All his own the Creepy gliding springing attack of the Jungle. He has no defence. He has no time to master new ring ideas and his own natural style is peculiarly effective. An orthodox Boxer finds it hard to fathom and solve his style. He is 26 years old. He was born at St. Lous do Senegal in september 1897. He answered to no other name than Baye until a wealthy frenchwoman on a visit to Senegal virtually adopted Liim and re christened him Luis sea voyages question of temperature writing in the English sportsman the special commissions has the following to say we have heard and read so much about the extreme disadvantage at which a Racehorse is placed by a sea voyage even of six Days that i have looked up Merman record. He won the Williamstown cup in Australia on november p. 1896. After that i bought him for mrs. Langtry and he was shipped within a month viz., on december 8, 1896. After a seven weeks voyage he landed in England on january 26, 1897, and was taken direct to Newmarket to Fred Webb s stable. It was a Haid Frost at the time very different from the temperature which he had left below the line. Webb soon had him at work and ran him at Kempton Park on april 19 for the Kingsclere Handicap a Mil and a half event. There were eleven runners and Merman carrying top weight 9st. 71b., made a very told show and was third Best though Watts eased him up just at the last and finished fourth. He had been Litt
