Tales of the wealth accumulated by .Jess.-, Wiliard .-since things began to break for him, are ably supported by the all-round: millionaire, .appearance of his manager, Tom Jones, at St. touts, recently. :. Jones'almost b'iinded the people by appearing without warning. He carried the. following field lamps:: ' One 8-carat searchlight In a platinum base, on the third finger of left hand. One 1500 candle power tie pin made up entirely of diamonds and rubies, in the general scheme of a fox's head (fox is correct). One battery of 16 diamond arcs and two rubies mounted in gold,.

" >: Conquer "Athletic "Heart" "Athletic heart," the Nemesis of the oarsman, runner, football player and others who indulge in strenuous forms of sport, has been conquered. If you have an. enlargement of'the va'ivular organs, as the result of over-competition, a physician, or on a pinch, a carpenter, can quickly effect a cure. All that is needed is a slight tapping with a hammer, upon the seventh cervical vertebra and your heart will shrink to proper proportions while you wait. At least that Is the gist of an announcement-made by a prominent medical authority, and it sounds so simple that even the layman hesitates to start a controversy, especially-since the physician already has first call upon the hammer. Furthermore, the athletic enthusiast can not but hope that the report is true. Acoepted at its face value it opens a wonderful'field for improvement in many Hues of sport. Think what it will mean to .baseball when the average big club manager discovers that by pounding at a certain point with a bat he can change a. solid concrete skull to a receptacle filled with something approaching human intelligence. 1 Harry Pollok has started a campaign to find opponents for Freddie Welsh.

The .Journal goes, on As a halm to the starved :appotitcs of patrons of the game Edmonton, through the energy of Louis Scaler, now and then gets a chance to view �omc good amateur . mit wielding. is called good amateur boxing, everything that can be suid in its favor has been: said. It is l.o more on a par, with good pro hoxing than an ox is on .a par with, u fifty h.p. roadster as a\ means. of- transportation. ,.� . �'''.:/"'''� "Not that there.,is any disposition to belittle what the amateurs are doing here. Scaler started out with nothing in the way. 'of. material and lie has graduated a dozen or more performers who arc/capable of holding their own-.with* amateurs anywhere, A few of them may some day loom up � on' tho pugilistic horizon, but, no matter how prejudiced one might be-in their favor, it would bo 'foolish to contend-that they, are championship calibre at this writing, There' Is a'Difference "'J'hc amateurs are in, .embrvo as boxers. The professionals-ithat is, the ones worth seelng-^arethc finished .product. They devote their whole time and energies toward the perfection of physical condition and-the acquisition of physical skill. Top-notch efficiency as ..a. boxer demands incessant work, 'something that is possible to few amateurs who stick within: the. Simon-pure .laws. . "Folks who oppose the'theory that the manly a'rt of self-defense and its practice arc wholly, beneficial'to the human frame are mighty few.and far between, and the number \yho futile-ly try to draw a fine distinction between amateur and professional boxing is steadily diminishing. If anything, pro boxing is less brutal than the amateur brand. The boxers are better conditioned'.' They are more skilful in defending themselves against serious* blows* and with; matchmakers always striving for evenly balanced bills, there is very seldom any damage done. The percentage of professional boxers "injured in proportioi to the number-engaged in the. sport is mighty snial} in- comparison with that recorded in other 'less, brutal' pastimes. Hockey, rughy, baseball, lacrosse and/ motor driving all pile up much greater mounds of injured participants each year than docs the boxing game. .. ' . . A Single Shadow '.VThe history of � the professional boxing game in western Canada contains but a single dark chapter that comes to memory now. "That was the'death of, Luther McCarthy in a manner which was purely accidental. Polkcy, who-was in the ring .with him then,, was a dub, and ring history probably does not rcpord a single parallel to the incident. To blackball the sport, because of such an accident is not much more logical than to suggest that'people stop eating because  a: lew' hundred gpt ptomaine poisoning .each � year,,, or � that' automobiles be banned because reckless drivers or careless pedestrians cause innumerable: fatalities: "Professional* boxing is'enjoying an era of popularity elsewhere- in Canada and one never:hears any kicks of brutality. Winnipeg, Saskatoon and Montreal, and the Pacific slope, arc all enthusiastic over the game and- horror of horrorsr-down in Toronto-the-good not long ago the saintly citizens sat up straight and prim, like the Puritans they are, and gazed in unmasked wonder upon the moving pictures which showed the Johnson-Willard battle; in-Havana."
