Tho Methodist ladies will hold their
annual bazaar on May Gth and 7th

flowers, aprons and fancy work. tf
In the history of the world there
have been several fights that stand out
as truly great . Everybody knows or
ought to know all about the battle be
tween David and Goliath. Mythology
celebrates the desperate struggle be
tween Hector and the Invulnerable
Achilles, and we all know that Sparta
cus was a great scrapper, and nearly
every male child has heard of the Sul-llvan-Kilraln
right But none of these
can compare in point of Interest before
the actual combnt with the Jeffries
Johnson battle, which is scheduled to
be held at the Emeryville race track,
Emeryville, Cal., July 4.
It Is estimated that the crowd that
will cheer the victor on that day will
be ten times as great as that which
turned down Its thumbs at the bout in
which Spnrtnous won tho gladiatorial
championship and as many times as
big as the gang that saw Hector do his
sprint around the walls of Troy before
Achilles finally put him out.
At first the promoters planned to
erect n structure that would hold
20,000 people, then 30,000, and now
Rickard and Gleason have shaped up
arrangements to seat CO.000 wild eyed
fight fans. Reservations for seats have
been received from all over the world
People who have never before taken
any Interest in boxing aro going to
eeethe fight of the century. Hugh
Mcintosh of Australia is to leave the
antipodes for San Francisco with a
party of 200 or more. From England
half a dozen lords are coming to take
in the big mill. The pnrty is expected
to arrive la this country early In May.
Noblemen from France and Germany
are also bound to see the big mill.
Jack Gleason says he has a request
from China asking him to reserve 150
Beats. Nearly every big city In the
United States is to have one or two
special trains headed for San Fran
Cisco. It looks as if Rickard and Glea
son will have to Increase the seating
capacity of the arena once more.
Of lute there has been a lot of fren
zied writing about the probable re
ceipts, and some of the unthinking
have estimated that $500,000 or even
$1,000,000 will be raked over the box
office desk. It Is to be said that $250,
000 will very nicely" and generously
cover receipts.
They are saying that a full million
will be bet on the result of the great
est of all fist fights. A million is a lot
of money, but there are many wise
boys and hunchees who are quietly
stowing away the dollars against the
time when the betting begins to be
lively, nud it is possible that the ag
gregate of the wagers at the last will
look like a picture of the national debt
Is It not barely possible that retire-
inent of all this coin to stakeholders'
hands might bring on stringency, tight
money and largo uncertainty? This is
not the financial editor's department,
but it Is humbly suggested that if the
Jeff-Johnson mill takes the money out
of circulation, as some of the sport
writers say It will do, the treasury ex
perts had better arrange to have all
the big prizefight transactions carried
out by check.
At least it is wise to leave enough
money in circulation to handle pros
per' -. Wo want no more clearing
house certificates.
The promoters have made arrange
ments with nearly all of the leading
railroad lines to the coast and with
their co-operation will put into effect
a system of supplying tickets for the
big fight that caunot fail to satisfy
In brief, the plau Is to make reserva
tlon for a certain number of seats for
each railroad. A person intending to
make the trip to Frisco to see the fight
has only to apply to a railroad agent,
deposit tho price of the ticket he de
sires, and the railroad company will
Issue to him on order on Mr. Gleason
or Mr. Rickard for a seat in the res
ervatlon secured for them.
This order will be countersigned by
an ngent of the railroad when the rait
road ticket is issued. Under this plan
speculators would have to buy a rail
road ticket with each ticket for the
fight. The tremendous expense, of
course, bars them from doing this.
Every safeguard will . be taken
against counterfeit tickets, and Glea
son and Rickard will be indemnified
by a substantial bond by the ticket
manufacturers. Tho whole scheme
has been thoroughly worked out and
pronounced flawless.
Gleason has mapped out a color
llieine In conjunction with the tick
rts that promises to prevent tho con
fusion usually attendant upon big
events of this kind. There will be
eight prices of admission. Each differ
ent priced ticket will bo of a certain
rolor. The entrances to the arena
will bp painted In colors to correspond
with the ticket. A man holding a
line tl k t will kuow that ho can't go
nstrny if lie enters the arena through
tin eutrnncp pnlnted blue. The same
will of eonr.p, apply to the other col

How Fortune Changes.
How strangely baseball fortunes do
mutate! Some years ago Tat Tebeau
gave his brother George a temporary
job in the Cleveland outfield just to
help him out with a little money. Now
George is one of the biggest magnates,
with probably twenty times as much
money as Pat has tucked away.

Somebody had thrown a stone at
the village constable as he patrolled
his beat at night, hitting him on the
The perpetrator of the outrage
was not recognized, but on search
ing for the missile the constable
found a peculiarly shaped stone,
which, lie averred, he had seen or
namenting the window sill of a man
whom he charged with the assault
"I experimented with the stone,

"I threw it at an old 'elmct of mine,

struck me."

asked the suspect. ,
I thought of that, triumphant

block of wood inside the 'elmet, and
