Calgary, ,A..trch 13.-Tommy Burns, ex-heavy weigh: champion- of the world, reiched this city today on a business trip, and will spend some time here. He is president of the Y. .M. C. \. boxing club in Calgary, and has a gents furnishing store here. ZBYSZKO SHOWS GREAT CLASS Minneapolis, March 14-Zbyszko siiowed great form here last night in his match with Jesse Wester-gard of Des Moines, and v^on two straight falls in 1,03 and 10 nnln-utcs. Manager Herman stated that the match between Zbyszko and Hackenschmidt vwas not yet made, although so stated by Chicago papers. He said arrangements were under way and would soon be finished to' bring the men together. The Knockout Kid Ex - Champion's Weekly Budget ~ Live Dope on the Prominent Fighters of the Day - Brown was Only Entitled to a Draw With Wolgast AllentowB, Pft., March 13.-For a second time Ad Wolgasit and Knockout Drown bare met for a session with the floves and proved nothing except that neither Is a boxer who can make ertravagant claims of class. The consonsus of expert opinion is that either Packey McParland or Owen Mmm jvauld have no trouble in ovit-polMlag both men In llmUedround bottta, with chaB��� greatly in favor of tsdtng the conteata w4th knock-otttt before the Ume limits,  Aa uatMl It Is difficult for the read-era of the New York papers to tell from the stories of the fieht which here Uist year be was flghtiniT in tha welter division. And ho was not muob of a boxer either. Allow for naitural Improvement I can't figure by any stretch of tho imagination how he could outpoint such a marveloua boxer ns Welsh. It is more than likely that detailed reports will show that the baltle was at iratch weights, and that Freddy was giving away a lot of pout> dage. At that Wells must be wondeiN fully imjiroved to win ;he decision, and we may hear further good reports froiTi him In the near future. Another Slap at Johnson A great m-iny sports thought I.nngford's easy vlc:ory over Hill Lang would force Champion Johnsoa to oome out In the open and offer to fight somebody; If not Langford, may. be Kaufman. But Ja/Ok Is not th� { least bit disturbed or bothering his ; head aixjut it at all. He has been offered a slice ot a |.SO,000 purse ta meet Sain, but his only reply to dat� is, "I want more money." The champion has always contended that a bout between colored men will not draw any real big coin, but just tihs was the better man. The critics are \ same ho wants to hold up the pix)mo divided, aa 'was the case after the ters for a big chunk of moKuma, or Phiiatfelphte meettng. Some have j nix on the thing, Kaufman the Only Mope ~ ' Al Ka.ufmau may be il\e oniy man with whom the power lies to force the champion to return lo tlie ring. It Al were to come boldly fomard and Brown wla'niog by the traditional city Moek, wWla the more conservaUve let U go at a dr�w. which Is very Ukely tha only fair decision. I requaated. a., well-known and faif-Blndad-ftttthority on pugilism to tele A Sound Argument It would be intensely foolish for us to Insist on the superiority of the ROXBORO CIGAR if, on trial, it wouldn't stand the test. No gdvertising is any good that hasn't got the goods behind it. It Is only continued custom that makes the production of a cigar profitable. With a poor article, all the advertising in the world could only Induce one trial. Advertising in such a case would be merely a waste of money. Our point is that it costs no more to smoke a good cigar than a bad one. We are spending an immense amount of money in the knowledge that the ROXBORO is a good cigar. Try it for yourself.

Eberg came back strong for the Remembered the Past second bout and broke half a dozen cbaace for MoFarland to do that and be fit. MeFarland'Moran Tonight But if New Yorkers were dissatisfied with the showing made by the lightweight champion they have something more promising to look forward to this coming week, 1 refer to the to-round contest scheduled for Tuesday evening befrwe^n two really clever and hard-hitting lightweights, Owen Aioran of England and Packey McFarland, the stock yards' champion. This match ought to prove something worth while, I would say, and also prove to the sports that it is ocoas-ionolly opportunity that makes champions and not always merit or ability. Mi' tip Is McFariiind, if there is a. shade. Of course there will be no referee's decision, hut the opinions of tlie scribes win not be so conflicting on this occasion, as both boys are pop-. ular with the pencil pushers.

Mert Sparrow, captain and star wing man, was attacked with appendicitis Sunday. St. Marys had not a spare man to take his place, as one of the players turned professional a few weeks ago. Gotch got a decidediv mixed reception when he atipp-ired. It �ft-as (he fore first time he had been seen in winni- times from dangerous positions be he finally caved In to a crotch and body hold.

At the time Morgan wore the second catcher's mask made, "Yale professors laughed when told that Avery could curve a ball." wya Morgan. "They claimed It was against the law of gravity. "We shoired them. I stood behind a tree, with Avery 60 feel away. He couldn't see me. and I couldn't see him. He curved the ball around the tree and I caught it. That didn't satisfy them. They said something was wrong, but they couldn't tell whaT it woe. "Mftnn, � PrJncoton pitcher, was the first college player to use tha curvet Batters thoi�ght he was crazy. They couldn't figure om �t first why they couldn't hit the ball. "A man named Tyng who caught for Harvard invented the mask . He made 'two and sent me one to try. r sent it back to him.

Tyng reduced the else of the iron hands and the mask catchers wear today is the result." ;
