TheSilverSrill Cor. 4tli Ave. A Bth St. ' Alex* Smith, fomier national open champion, telle of the following wonderful shot: ,, Most players when caught In deep sand traps are well satisfied to just get out. During the national championship in lyo over the links of the Philadelphia Cricket club"! holed out from a nasty sand trap that was at least 50 yards from the 'green. The shot was particularly unusual because it was made in tho final round of the Important tournament, when every stroke made a big difference in the winning scores. The leaders were pletty well bunch ed at the start of the last round. When playing the seventh hole my approach was half topped and the ball fell short into a mean sand pit a little to the right of the green. This mishap looked like tho Iors of at least one stroke and at a lime when an extra stroke would have put me almost out of the running. I mado up my mind to take a des pernte chance and try for the green rather than juat recover out for pitch up to the pin. Taking the heaviest niblick I had I got tho ball up Quickly and it went high In the direction of the flag. The ball dropped on the green perhaps 30 ifeetln front of the hole and had just enough strength to roll in. The shot wasn't aO" spectacular as lofting over tree.s, but to me It was one of tho most remarkable and useful shots I havci over seen. It was that sand shot more than anything else that was resiiop.slblo for my winning the national title that season.

New York.-The present stituo of lliQ world's he.ivyweight champlousuip looks about the same to-day as It did when Jim Jeffries announced his retirement In 1904. Burns and count-leas other pugilists then claimed the title, Including even Jack Munroe. In fact, we have now tlio days of 1904 repeated. Wlllard has retired. He may, however, and in all probability will, emerge from his Kansas farm long enough to take a sound whipping as Joffi-ies did. It being the invariable rule that a fighter once in retirement Is practically gone when it comes to hooking up wltlt a real game scrapper. Now we have two would-bo champions, Futlon and Dempsey, on our hands, and both of them arc ready to stake their punch against all comers. Dempsey has been accused of picking "easy marks" during the most of his ring career, and at one time was very much dissatisfied with tho whole game and wanted to get out of it. Nevortbe-less, he has been making some noise all winter while tho prospective Wil-lard-Fulton bout was in the air. After that was unceremoniously blackballed by the public, Fulton said ho waa willing to give Dempsey the once over. ^ > As to the possible outcome of the, battle very little can be said now. Ful-' action again.' ton has met some good men and has a mighty punch. Dempsey, on the other hand, has not been credited with victories or even battles with the top-notchers, but he has a long string of one-round knockouts to hie credit. Tho only fair basis of comparison io on the two meetings with Billy Miske of St. Paul. Dempsey and Fulton fought Miske last winter, but neither registered a decided victory. "The greatest outfield that was over gathered together In the entire history of the game was the Speaker-Hooper-Lewis combination of the Boston Ilcd Sox," declared Clark Griffith, manager of tho Washington Senators. "In days gone by, and oven in the present, there have been outtleldora who, individually, outranged .ny one of that trio. But when It cames to a combination, nothing ever approached Speaker, Hooper and Lewis. Their work was almost miraculous. It was almost Impossible for a batsman to hit a ball into safe territory In the Ked Sox outfield. Any one of that trio seemed able to travel 100 yards-and still get the ball, They /;ould go backward and forward.^ in amazing fashion; they could catch the ball on their shoolops or over their s'noulders. "And those boys had throwing arms that knew no peers. Times without number those fellows would make a catch far out toward the fenco and the man on third would try to go homo on an apparent sacrifice fly. It seenied that nothing but a miracle could atop him from scoring. Yet tho Red Sox gardeper who caught tho ball would whirl, heave-and the runner was out standing up. "Speaker, Hooper and Lewis made up tho greatest outfield of all time and I doubt if another combination as unl formly powerful ever will be seen In LONGER LINKS IN SIGHT. M'GOORTY BOOSTfJ MITCHELL. The ayes seem to have it in the vote on whether Ritchie Mitchell Is the real thing In the fighting line. Eddie McGoorty is tho latest to cast his vote. He was back of Joe Welling when he and Mitchell clashed at Milwaukee recently. "While Welling was considerable of a disappointment to me for his failure to win when he had his man going, there Is another side of the fight one must look at," said McGoorty. "That side of it Is all around the Mitchell end. It Is evident to me that Ritchie I� a much better boy than most people credit him with being. I thought ho put up one of the greatest battles In the face of a serious handicap that I ever saw, "I asked Welling about Mitchell at the end of tho third round, and Joo told us in the corner, that Mitchell, though he seemed to be flopping and staggering around the ring, was stlU strong and had a big punch. Twff rounds after that Mitchell was entirely over his trouble and had his punch working in great shape. He staggered Welling time and again, and Joe got pretty good boating, althouj^ all through tho battle Joe kept trying his best to land some sort of a punch on hla man and succeeded ' in getting home a few that seemed to hurt. "Mitchell's quick recovery from a right flush on tho Jaw, and the able manner in which he conducted himself after that, stamps him as a Tlghtlng man with a great future."

U. 4 Loi Angela* A conception of the extent to which the Increased liveliness of the golf ball has brought about lengthening of the links may be formed from tho figures of the distance negotiated bV the players at the Olympla Fields Country club, Chicago, where Chick Evans and Warren K. Wood played the pros Hutchinson ahd Barnes, recently. Where a ifew years ago a course of 0000 yards was considered of cham plonship caliber sD fa�-flylng have become the improved balls that now that would seem tojibo a short course wholly unfitted for high-class ama tours or pros. The Qlympla field course has an out Ifength of 3422 yard and an in of 3311, or a total of 6733 yards. This is the distance of a 300 yard hole longer than the Garden City Golf club course from tho back trees, and 500 yards longer than tho Piping Kock links.
