he was known for the thirty years
He is now more than eighty years
old but has the appeal ance of a man
of fifty He has still the military
bearing first acquired in the Virginia
militia and later in the Confederate
Smythes health improved steadily
after he came to the banks of the
river notwithstanding he squatted in
a place where the pioneers suffered
with chills and fever widely known
in the early days as the Wabash
shakes He has not been ill a day
reads without glasses has a firm
step and the grace of an athlete
He did not like publicity or noto
riety especially in the pose of a her
mit but he welcomed visitors espe
cially those with whom he could talk
on matters worth while Asked to
write as a naturalist if not of his
reminiscences he replied That
would be a petty satisfaction of van
ity and if I became a successful
writer it would defeat my purpose of
living out my years as I am doing
This was a few years ago and
commenting on vanity he said I
have not seen my own face in any
kind of mirror for eight years except
the disturbedreflectlon of the water
He preferred to live his song rather
than to sing it
Long will the lovable old man he
remembered by those who visited
him His gentle voice sweet tempera
ment dignified and gracious bearing
He loved children and showed them
photograph- his own now grown to
manhood and womanhood
Jem Mace Originated Present Style
of Fighting and Was Invincible
for Years
London Jem Macd the English
prizefighter who died recently at the
age of 79 was at one time worth more
than 1000000 but of recent years
has been dependent on friends Occa
sionally he had appeared in music hall
Mace was born at Beeston in Nor
folk and In his was one of the
greatest of boxers His first great
fight was with Bill Thorpe whom he
beat In 18 rounds When Tom Say-
ers retired from the championship in
1860 Mace was regarded as his legit
imate successor but his supremacy
was soon challenged by Tom King
The two met in January 1862 when
after 43 rounds Mace was given the
verdict For the next ten years Mace
was practically Invincible
Mace 1b regarded as the father of
the present style of boxing because he
is the originator When the former
English champion entered the profes
sional prize ring the boxers stood toe
to toe with spikes In their shoes and
banged away at each other until one
or both dropped to the floor exhaust
ed At first Mace engaged in this style
of fighting under the so called London
prize ring rules Owing to the sturdi
ness of the men of his day he had
little chance at that game and con
cluded to use a style of his own He
originated his style and for the first
time in the history of the prize ring
vas seen fast feinting with both
hands side stepping and ducking
Mace was an artist at scientific boxing
and for that reason beat all his oppo
nents easily He struck a hard blow
with all his cleverness and time and
again in his battles blinded his oppo
nents with his jabs and hooks Seldom
did he come out of a bout bearing
a mark of any kind as he avoided all
the attempts of his adversaries to land
with his ducking side stepping and
When Mace originated this clever
style of boxing he feared no man and
was matched with fighters weighing as
y -
Jem Mace
much as 30 pounds more than himself
In those days his style of footwork
which he originated was a revelation
to the enthusiasts It struck the mar
quis of Queensberry so forcibly that he
caused the present rules to be drawn
up Mace also may be said to be the
originator of the marquis of Queens
berry rules because his cleverness at
boxing prompted the makers to draw
them up
