Well, the negro is down and out, a fact that very few will regret. Dur- ing his reigit as champion Johnson did little towards making himself popular with the boxing public, and his repeated demands for win, lose or a title, battle did not add to his reputation. Johnson was fortunate during the time he held the title in that neither England, America not Australia could produce a heavyweight worth calling a cham- pion.

Yet it frenuently happens that a player in- sists on talking to such inanmiste ob- jects as balls, clubs, grass, etc., not even overlooking caddies. If there is anything in the world to make a man talk It is an inanimate caddie. There are many such. There is no account- ing tor taste anafl a tale could oe told about it, and there is also no accounting for these kind of-men who constantly chatter about everything in general and nothing in particular.

MacDonald Bicycle Repairer Gunsmith Phone 1032 418H, 5th Street There is a story going round about a certain learned judge who, in walks of life other than goif, had been emin- ently successful, rather in contrast to his career on the links. He had a habit of speaking to his clubs, some- times sharply, otber times command- ingly and often despairingly. Anyhow, he was constantly .talking. One day be attempted to play golf, and do what he might, there was no getting the ball to do a thing except that which was absolutely contrary'to his to say ambition. Reaching the fourteenth hole, near which was a bridge over a good-sized crook, he was seen to wend his way creek ward with firm step, as if de- termined to end all his sufferings once and' forever.. Of course, he was closely watched with more curiosity than apprehen- sion. He stopped on the middle of the bridge, and in a loud voice, his face raised, ,he called upon al'i the heathen, idols and other things to wit- ness his act in connection with this game, which was far beyond all hu- man endurance. Assuming his most eloquent manner, he addressed eaoh club separately as he. drew It forth from the bag, and after each disser- tation proceeded to hurl the weapon far astreara. As a climax bag, bafts and umbrella went hurdling after. It was dramatic. Two days later a friend met the judge in his chambers, and not-know- ing of the formal death and interment golf, performed so legally and so eloquently, invited his honor to a round. The last-named tapped his desk thoughtfully, was lost.
