The Englishman did not lack for supporters ot the same sort. Here were two ot the greatest boxers that ever entered the ring, each as clever as could be and each knowing the others strong points. The man who led was sure to get the worst of it, and, knowing this each man held his own ground and refused to open hostilities. The crowd cheered and taunted, but the umviU-ing principals simply stood stHl in their respective corners and glared at each other. This lasted until Mace Avent to his comer, picked up a bottle, and, turning to his opponent, shouted: Refused to Fight. "Come on, Joe, and have a drink with me." "Sure," said Joe, and as he stepped torVf-ard the gipsy handed him the bottle. After the drink Coburn asked Jem why he did not' come out of his corner and tight like a man, and '.Mace hurled back the question. They had hean in the ring an hour and a quarter without striking a blow, when suddenly a score of men in military garb and mounted on draft horses were seen advancing toward the ring. At their head was a very stout old gentleman on a great gray charger. He wore a cocked hat with an ostrich feather in it, and was garbed in the uniform ot a British general, although he waa only the high sheriff. From his golden belt hung a finely mounted scabbard. In which rested his sword. Behind him were a score of mounted men, all, like their leader, in military garb. Stole Sheriff's Sword. There was consternation when this eompany halted at the ringside, and more, anxiety when their leader de- TRIED TO CROSS FRED FULTON San Francisco Fighter Got For His Pains Beating Fred Fulton's San Francisco experience is still echoing back from the Coast. Following the mixup regarding Frederic's appearance at a soldier benefit and a most generous panning ot the large one' b'y the town press they invited the big one to give a four round exhibitioa before a San Francisco club. It was only to be an exhibition, but apparently someone rubbed on the lather. They brought in a big one. Rudy Peterson by name, and Frederick stepped into the club ring to give what he supposed to be an exhibition. Peterson made it a fight. For three rounds he waded into Fulton, California style, and there was great glee in the earthquake belt. Fulton, feeling that he was a guest and not supposed to pull any rough-stutf, protected himself as best he could and sparred. Finally, in the fourth round, the notion came ambling along through the dome of the Fulton machine that he was getting crossed and he cut loose. He knocked the everlasting lite out ot Mr. Peterson. They say it was plock-pllft-plow, and Mr. Peterson, hearing what the British soldiers refer to as the bells ot Hades ringing loud and dear. They stopped it to save Mr. Peterson from requiring a tub of hot water for thawing out "purposes. The trouble with this sort of stuff is that a doublecross requires fast work. The delayed pass is absolutely bogus when there is to be dirty work at the crossroads. San Francisco writers who have been doing Frederic a delicate brown on the griddle over the mlxup on the soldier benefit, now say that while they don't like Frederic any better, the bird certainly cati fight.-Minneapolis Journal.

Crowder's new "work or fight" regulations may require professional-baseball players either to engage in some useful occupation or to join the army. Baseball players as well as jockeys, professional golfer.-i and other professional sportsmen. General Crowder said tb-day, will be affected by regulations if strictly enforced. Theatrical performers were excepted from the regulations pt the direction of Secretary of War Baker, who is said to feel that the people cannot do without all amusement In war time and that other amusements could be dispensed with more readily.

Kioruan ot Goshen, N.V, He will train her at Charter Oak Park. New York.-Three-fingered Mor-decal Brown, former star of the old (^ubs, and recognized at one time as one of the greatest pitchers who ever worked for a big league baseball club, is all through now as a great star. As a baseball romance Brown's history stands alone. His rise to tame as a big leaguer was meteoric, once he shook the shackles of the minors from his feet, but If It hadn't been for a twist of fate Brown would have gone through the minors a third baseman. It was with Terre Haute, when that city had a club in the Three-I league that Brown awakened to the fact that he was a pitcher. When an accident happened to a flock of pitchers, he was requlstioned from third base and sent into the box, with such effect .that he surprised the natives by wiu-'nlng his ganie. From that time Brown was a hurler of class. He never had sl,i?ned a contract from Terre Haute, so he signed with Omaha the following season. Pat; Donovan, then managing the St. Louis Cardinals, purchased him, getting himself into a scrap with the Terre H�ute club which sdll claimed him. The claim was settled tor ?300, and shortly afterward Brown was traded to the Cubs. With Chicago Brown remained until he was traded to Cincinnati. He refuaed to report to the Reds, and Garry Hermann made him a tree agent when Brown jumped 10 the Feds. Brown managed the St. Louis Feds, before lie finished w'tli big league baseball and finally drifted to the American Association. His sojourn as a star was troublesome, brilliant and measurably brief, but he leave.s a record behind hira that will be hard to touch for years to come. HIb battles with Christy Matthewson when Matty was star ot the Giant staff, will live in baseball history tor years to come. face to face with the mystic puddle. Before Uoyle wont to Florida last winter, his baseball days wore about over, and ho had his ticket bought for aMiaveu of rest tor iigcd athletes. Larry didn't want to retire, but wanted lr> come back to the Giants, so he hunted up the Florida pool that Ponco de ] Leon tell down on. And look at Lurry today! Then imagine where Do Leon is. Doylo'a rejuvenation Is easily tha sonsution of the basobull season. It the major leagues know anything, they will send all their players down to Doylo'.s spring in Florida next season. Some of the players really ought to be sent before next season.

Any one who has stood back ot 11 lino of men shooting at the traps must certainly have been impressed with the often ludicrous positions some shooters strive to get into before they call "pull." Because iiullviduals vary so much it is very hard to lay down hard and fast rules for the proper position with any particular type of firearm. Yet one can always tell the beginner by the awltwardness ot his position and also by the fact that he keeps changing from shot to shot. JIaking due allowance for the build of the shooter. the position for trap shooting should ho one that can be assumed quickly and with precision. A heavy built man with considerable muscloa about the shoulder usually places the butt of the guu directly against Iho shoulder. A thin man, however, will often find that he will sutfor less punishment if he hoid.. Sunday Games, ColumbUK .Minnoapolls 0. Second game.-Columbus U, .Minno-apolls 1. Indianapolis s, .Milwaukee 9.
