Training Until June.

Three or Four Weeka to Fit Him For

198 Pounds When Ho Tacklae Jaff.
Until recently the all absorbing ques
tion was, Will Jeffries be able to get
iito condition? Now they are asking
If Jack Johnson will be able to do him
elf Justice July 4. Some people are
Worrying because the negro is having
a good time at his Seal Hock quarters,
near San Francisco, and has not set
tled down to the real hard training.
There Is no need for any worry. John
ton knows how to get Into shape for a
battle. The negro champion needs
only the fraction of the time Jeffries Is
using for the preparation, as he has
been fighting often and can get Into
shape very quickly.
Just at present he Is getting all there
la to be had out of the sensation of
being a prominent figure in the public
eye. lie seems to feel that the hard
grind of the training season will be on
whenever be makes up his mind to for
sake pleasure and meet it face to face.
While training for his fight with Tom
my Iiurns in Australia some of the
well meaning visitors did not like
Johnson's style of preparing for a
world's championship fight, and they
made suggestions. Johnson heard
them and was quick to resent. From
these training camp experiences devel
oped the feeling of dissatisfaction
which resulted In Johnson turning
Sam Fitzpatrick, a valuable, conscien
tious manager and advertiser, adrift.
Johnson has some sound logic of fan
epigrammatic nature in his comments
on training. He says:
"A fighter when in the ring may
wish he had some of the strength he
wasted on a wood pile. '
"No heavyweight fighter needs to
starve In order to be fast enough to
enter the ring.
"It Is tax enough on any one's
strength to fight, so it is better to save
all your power by refusing to worry.'
Johnson says he will begin real hard
training about the first week in June,
Then he will get busy with, the weight
machines, the medicine ball and the
four round tilts with the human punch

tion notch In three weeks.
If he started sooner he might find
himself stale. He knows what's good
for him and doesn't have to monkey
around to find out how long he should
train or what kind of work suits him.
Johnson has his mind set on being at
concert pitch by July 1 aud then be
able to hold himself In trim from then
until he faces Jeffries In the ring.
When Johnson arrived at the train
ing camp he tipped the scales at 220
iwunds. After u few twelve mile runs
on the roud he weighed 210. In talk
ing about his weight recently John
' "It never worries me bow much or
how little I weigh. My training is all
bused on how I feel and perform. If
I could hit as hard, be as fast and feel
ns well 1 would not enre whether I
weighed a ton or 1.T0 pounds. But
common sense tells me that 108 or
200 pounds Is enough for me to weigh
and be at my best. I do not expect to
weigh an ounce more than 108 when I
meet Mr. Jeffries. It is not necessary
for me to tip over buildings or wrestle
with bears. All I need la some out
door work, a little boxing to retain
npeed, and I will be there without an

Value of. a Surplus of Energy In th
Battle of Lifo.
In every department of life phys
ical, mental unci n iral reserves are
of incalculable valuo. Many people
work so hard that they exhaust
their physical energies each day.
They make it a matter of con
science to wade through just as
much work ns possible every day, no
matter how painfully it is done, not
realizing the tremendous value of
keeping oneself vigorous, buoyant.
No life can be vigorous if it is
not kept fresh, responsive, by great
physical and mental reserves. As
hibernating animals, like the bear,
in cold climates sustain life through
the winter wholly upon the reserve
fat and nutriment stored up in the
tissues, so patients who have splen
did physical reserves and resisting
power are carried through severe
sickness and sustained through se
vere illnesses by this reserve sur
plus, stored up vital power, while
those who lack it, those who have
dissipated it in abnormal living and
excesses, often lose their lives even
in much less severe illnesses.
Great business men accomplish
marvels with their reserves. Many
of them work but a few hours a
day, but they have such tremendous
physical reserves and so much stor
ed up mental energy that they are
ablo to . accomplish wonders in a
short time because of their ability
to work with great intensity and
rcople who keep their physical
and mental surplus drawn down
very low by working a great many
hours and almost never taking va
cations, who do not fill their reserve
reservoir by frequent vacations and
by a lot of recreation and play, do
not work with anything like the
freshness and mental vigor of those
who work fewer hours and con
stantlv accumulate creat reserve
There comes into every life worth
while a time when success will turn
upon the reserve power. It is then
a question of how long your stored
up energy will enable you to hold
out. There wul often arise emer
gencies when your success will de
pend upon how much fight there is
m you. Success Magazine.
Tho Tree Moved.
M. Thouar during his explora
tions in South Africa had occasion
to apprehend an attack from hos
tile natives. lie kept his men on
the watch for six days, though they
were worn out with fatigue.
"Once a sentinel slept leaning on
his gun," he wTote. "I woke him
and warned him that one of the
least dangers of such a sleep was
that a Toba spy would fall on him
and kill him with his own gun.
While we talked 1 observed that a
little tree which I had noticed ear
lier now occupied a different posi
tion. I fixed ray attention on it
and saw that it moved almost im
perceptibly. I had seen such a phe
nomenon before. The sentinel and
I prctcnded.to sleep. Tho tree con
tinued to approach. Suddenly I
raised my gun and fired. We rush
ed forward. There lay a Toba
wounded in the leg and grasping
the branch with which he had dis
guised himself as a tree."

Arthur Devlin Is counted by many
fans, especially New Yorkers, as the

Eddie Grant of the Quakers is steadi

champion Pirates now use Bobby
Byrne on third, a midget who does his
best, but Is not to be considered a
topnotcher. St. Louis has Bnrbeau

even smaller than Byrne and hardly
as efficient. Mowrey is an unfortunate
player who is growing old in big league
