AH tha prominent amateur glove welders of the city are entered for the contests, and eight outside battlers from differ- ent points have sent in their names to be entered on the HBts. A good many of the .hoys will fcave a following of ad- mirers at the bouts, and the occasion promises to be a red letter incident in the day's sporting events. Thirty names or more have now been given in for the Hats. Sixteen of of these have filled out application forms, and are reasonably sure to be on deck, and there is every reason to believe that nearly al'l the balance of tha number who have sent in their names will be properly lined up be- fore the week is out.

Here IB a pointer in the manly art which might toe assimilated to advan- tage by the aspirants of approved methods of boxing: The left-hand blow, the straight left from the shoulder, is the keynote of the best style of boxing. It is hard to say what a good straight left hand cannot accomplish; certainly no man can expect or hope ever to become a perfect exponent of the true style of boxing until he bas acquired a good, straight and precise left hand. With a good straight left hand a man can do more than with any other blow in the boxer's repertoire. A straight right is good, hut a man with a straight left opposed to one with only a straight right would certainly have a great ad- vantage, as the left hand is so.much nearer than the right (to an opponent) and can he got home more quickly; while a right lead, when opposed to a straight 'left hand, would be fatal to the one leading. The left hand lead off should be learned as its importance can- not be eaggerated. A nulck lead off enables a man to score point after point without a counter or return. To deliver the blow the upper arm should be kept close to the body, with the hand pointing- straight at your oppo- nent's nose. It is a mistake to draw tha hand back at all, when about to deliver the blow, us this gives your ponent notice of your intention to hit, and he will be prepared either to hit you first, or to guard and counter your Mow 'when delivered. For this reason, the left arm should never be fully ex- tended, -but the whole upper arm, as I have said, pressed close to the body, and the forearm and hand pointing straight opponent's face. In stepping in to deliver the blow, push yourself off tha hall of the right foot, and spring in about eighteen or twen- ty inches; the action of the foot and arm should be simultaneous: you must not step In first antl then deliver the blow. The lead off at the head with he left hand is the only blow that Is delivered while the right foot is raised 'rom the ground. As ;-cu step in, the foot should follow, and at the in- stant your blo'w lands on your oppo- nent, should hang over the spot for- merly occupied by the left. Take full .advantage of your height and standing perfectly upright, and not crouching in the least. When you step in be very careful to place your left foot heel first on the if your toe touches the ground first and your by uny chance gets back instead of guarding or receiving your blow, you do not meet with any resistance, and are consequently apt to lose your -balance, In which case, until you'Can recover yourself, you are at his mercy. What Is known as the double lead at the head repetition of your first- blow 'by remaining in the tion your lead placed you in, by sim- ply drawing the arm back and again shooting it out at the face. You will be aMe to draw the arm back, because your opponent's head will be driven back -with your firnt hit, and when it comes hack to normal position it another one.
