Jeffries' Cnmp Without Snap as Re
sult of Glllett's Order.
Jeffries' Training Camp. June 20.
Wo are all like a stale bottle of pop
absolutely without any snap or ginger
and once more Jeffries disappointed
me by resting and not doing any box
The gloom thnt was cast over the
camp by the announcement that the
governor had ordered the fight
stopped lias not disappeared and no
body felt at all like working. We all
wanted to just loaf and think , and
that's all .we did.
Of course Jeffries did punch the
bag and play two games of handball
in the morning and he interspersed a
little rope skipping into ins morning
Avorkout. Hut I noticed that he did
not put the vim into the game that he
generally does , and I proved an easy
victim for him because of my own
gloomy feelings. I was totally with'
out ambition and felt a little bit re
llevc'd when I learned that Jeffries
had Cut out work for the day.
Mind you , what Jeffries did he did
well , but he just did it in the manner
of a man who wants to keep in shape ,
not in the vigorous slam bang style
that has characterized his work be
fore. You see I'm using my own feel
lugs as a barometer of Jeffries and 1
think I have him gauged right. How
ever , way out here where we are nl-
most cut off from civilization we can't
tell exactly what's going on in the
city , and understand that a lot ol
things have transpired and developed
that we know nothing about.
Jeffries 'insists upon making him
relf think that the light will bo held
in Frisco , and he will continue tc
think that way till he's officially notl
lied to the contrary by Tex HIckard
Up to date ho has not been notified
If the scene of battle Is changed , ant !
it appears likely that it will be , 1
should advise Jeffries not to ask for r ,
postponement. He already is in great
condition and I do not think he coult
improve on himself physically by tak
ing more time.
Personally , from what Informntior
I have at hand , I do not think there' ;
n chance for the light to be held ii
Frisco now. Hut until Jeffries has
his mind set at rest regarding this
point I do not believe ho will attempi
any boxing whatever. And that's
what is worrying mo just now UK
boxing.as I have said all along , Jell
needs it , and needs It badly. It's al
well to say that he never boxed mucl
in training before and that he has
done more glove work for this fighi
than he did for any other one he evei
had , but it is also true that he nevei
has stacked up against such a clevei
boxer , outside of myself , as this same
Mr. Jack Johnson. My light with Jeff
ries at Coney Island Is what we hai
to go on in trying to figure the com
"But Jeff won , didn't he ? " say you
He did , but we must remember tha
that was ten years ago , and ten yean
makes a big difference. And we als (
must remember Jeffries has not had i
glotn on In seven years , whereas IK
was boxing right along when he wen
against me. If he did not do it whih
training he was doing It in the rlnj
for blood. The fast work at boxlnf
will get Jim's eye and distance rlghi
and then there'll be nothing to It
That's absolutely all he needs now
and I know It will help him greatly

Herrick's Baseball Team.
Herrick Press : The leaders of Her
rick's baseball organization went ou
among the business people Monda ;
and solicited donations of funds wltl
which to purchase new ball suits
mitts , and other paraphernalia usei
In the games. Our people respondet
to the call liberally and in the coursi
of an hour or two nearly $150 wai
raised. Herrick Is to have a goo (
team this year , but Intends to adhen
to the rule of playing local parties
only , which we believe should be fol
lowed by all the towns In the Inter
est of good , interesting baseball.
With "Unloaded" Gun.
Wisner Chronicle : While Willlan
Schmoldt was shooting at a target a
his father's home last Sunday with i
small rille , a bullet struck Mona , tin
little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Join
Dewitz , who was playing at thel
home at a distance of several blocks
The ball passed through a small per
tlon of the llesh on one of her limb :
and grazed the other. This acclden
demonstrates the danger of using fire
arms in the city. It Is Indeed fortu
nate that the ball did not strike tin
little girl in n vital spot or It wouli
Lave caused a terrible tragedy.
NORDICA STOPPED THE CLOCK.
The Clanging of the Tlmplece Bother'
e'd the Singer.
New York , June 20. Not for every
one IH the old town clock of Irvlngton-
on-tho-Hudson stopped. Hut last night
It came to a stand for Lillian Nordlea.
The songstress did not stop It her
self. It was done by polite town olll-
clals. This Is why :
The other day when the singer visit
ed the town hall , In whoso tower Is
the old clock that has not stopped for
years , Hhe made a few minor altera
tions In the room for the concert
which she gave last night for the ben
efit of the Hudson Kiver Franchise as
sociation. As she stood on the stage
the old clock boomed forth the hour.
"Mercy me , what , was that ? " ex-
lalmed the singer.
She was told that it was the clock
sounding the hour.
"Hut I can't sing with that going
.HI. " she declared.
So the clock was halted In Its prog
ress. It was allowed to strike the
lour of 8 , just before the concert be-
; tui , and then it was silent until 11 ,
when the concert was over.
AIMS SUIT T MRS. J. S. LOFTIS.
Mrs. J. W. Oliver Asks $25,000 for the
Alienation of Affections.
Chicago , Juno 20. Mrs. Ida Loft Is ,
wife of Joseph S. Loftls of the diamond
mend linn of Loftls Itros. & Co. , was
sued for $25,000 for alienation of affec
tions by Mrs. Ada F. Oliver , wife of
John W. Oliver , SOti East FIfty-llrst
street , a real estate man connected
with the firm of Oliver & Co. , 110
While the suit , which was filed In
the superior court by Attorney Hiram
I. Keck , representing Mrs. Oliver , has
attained only the dimensions of a
praecipe , it was gathered that Mrs.
Oliver claims to have met Mr. Oliver
and Mrs. Loftls together in the Con
gress hotel recently. They did not
recognize Mrs. Oliver , according to
the story , and In consequence Mrs.
Ollvod was enabled to surprise her
husband by accusations when he had
reached the Oliver residence that
night. Thorn was a family smash and
Mr. Oliver departed from the prem
Over the telephone from her resi
dence at 4011 Sheridan road , Mrs. Lof-
tis , the defendant in the case , made
vigorous answer to the allegation con
tained in the bill.
"Tills is absurd and Impossible , " she
gasped , when told of it. "This is the
first I have heard of the charge. "
The story about the alleged meetIng -
Ing In the Congress hotel then was
recited In detail to Mrs. Loftis.
"Absolutely absurd and Impossible , "
"Who Is Mr.Oliver , ? " asked the In
"My husband will discuss this case , "
responded Mrs. Loftls firmly. "I am
not going to go Into my affairs with
"Is Mr. Loftls there ? " asked the in-
tervlewer , who was perfectly willing
to talk with him.
"Yes , he's here , but he's sick and
can't come to the phone , " responded
Mrs. Loftis. "But he'll talk to you to-
"This is a surprise to me , " said Mrs ,
S. T. A. Loftis , wife of another mem
ber of the diamond firm. "I know
nothing of this trouble. Yes , I know
the Olivers that is , one family ol
that name. "
Mrs. Oliver was found at her resi <
deuce. She proved to be a brunette
with flashing eyes. She was In higli
dudgeon and spoke wrathfully to the
reporter. In point of speed her words
competed with the flashes of her eyes
"I won't talk about this to any re
'porters , " she announced. "You can'l
bluff me into talking. "
The reporter spoke soothingly ; , bul
she refused to be beguiled by his re
presentations. She wouldn't tell where
her husband was if she knew. etc.
etc. Then she bounced back into hei
flat and slammed the door.
Mrs. Walter D. Oliver , 4501 Drex
el boulevard , said she had not heard
anything about the trouble.
"I didn't know that they had had
any trouble , " she said , referring to the
Oliver family Involved in the suit. " 1
cannot discuss their affairs. "
The Loftis brothers gained some no <
torlety In 1908 , when a shooting oc
curred in their office during a bus !
ness meeting of the company. Samuel
Loftls was shot and slightly wounded
and the central police were called.
Samuel came into public notice
again last August when he was expelled
polled from the South Shore Country
club "for conduct Injurious to the
peace and good order of the South
Shore Country club" by a vote of the
board of directors.
It was alleged at the time that Mr ,
Loftls had used unbecoming language
to his wife and had laid violent hands
upon her. The evidence was to the
effect that Mr. Loftls did not strike 01
slap his wife , but that a scene wai
created In the club that was Impro-
Norfolk Has Water Famine.
If Norfolk had had a fire Fridaj
night or Saturday , or if It has one to
night , there would have been and
there will be serious danger. There
isn't enough water in the standpipc tc :

flame. Residents living near the
stnndpipe can't get a drop of watei

other parts of town , when the hose is

to maintain pressure.
Part of the time the city buys olec

The city mayor himself says the
water barely leaked through a garden
hose at his home. The mayor's telephone -
phone was kept busy by Inquirers who
asked to know what the trouble was.
Ho made an Investigation and found
that there was very little or no water
at all In the standpipc , though the
electric pump was working. "I don't
believe there was ten feet of water In
the Htandpipe last evening , " said the

"Unless we can get pressure with

to ask the citizens to quit using water

The mayor ajso believed It would
cost more to fix the pump in tiptop
shape before the city could have the
plant in first class condition.
The city street sprinkler was shut
off during the afternoon to save water.
"The electric pump is a 4'JO-gallon
capacity machine and the city steam
pump ibout i > 00 gallons , " said one
man , who has been running the pumps ,
and both together can't keep the
stamlpipi' filled well enough to pro
tect the town against fire. The pumps
haven't the capacity to meet the de
mand , at the rate Norfolk is using
water now. Hose allowed to run in
the lawn all day long Is commonplace ,
and the result is that If Norfolk should
have a fire , there'd be serious consequences

In Quaint Old Venice.
Venice , May 10. Of nil the cities of
the eartli this is the most unique , for
it is bnilt out in the Adriatic sea on
120 small islands , about ten miles from
the mainland. The city is connected
by 4f > 0 public bridges so that the
streets are made of water , and gondolas
dolas are the vehicles for travel.
Horses and carriages have never
been seen in the streets of this an
cient city. Venice was founded by n
few men seeking an escape from
Attila , who was looked upon as the
"scourge of God. " This Venetian city
withstood the storms and attacks of
enemies for over a dozen centuries ,
and still defies the sea that constantly
Hews through its streets.
The first bank of deposit In Europe
was started in this city , and here the
first newspaper known to the world
was printed in St. Mark's square for a
coin , called The Gazetta. Venice was
the first town in Italy to print books.
On the Grand canal is the RIalto
high bridge mentioned by Shakespeare ,
which Is curious and attractive but
worn by the lapse of years.
Rogers says , in describing Venice :
"There is a glorious city in the sea.
The sea is in the broad , the narrow
Ebbing and flowing ; and the salt sea
Clings to the marble of her palaces.
No trace of man , no footsteps to and
Lead to her gates. The path lies o'er
Invisible ; and from the land we went ,
As to a floating city steering in
And gliding up her streets as in a
It's a Slow Life.
It is strange ! All through the city
are the waterways for the gondolas ,
which are the only means of transpor
tation. How would Norfolk people
like to live in such a city ? Always
life. No sound of rolling wheels or
bear one away to business or the
store. It Is indeed a very slow , quiet
waiting for a gondola to come and
The noted church In the city is St.
Mark's , so named because the apostle
St. Mark is buried near one of the
shrines. It was built In 830 A. D. Out
side the portico are four bronze
horses , the work of Lyslppus the Co
rinthian artist. They were presented
to Nero , who caused them to be har
nessed to the chariot of the sun , after
wards used by Troian and then
brought from Constantinople by
Doge Dandolo in 1204. Inside the
door of the main entrance is a stone
on which it Is said Pope Alexander
III made Frederick Uarbarossa pros
trate hlmnolf. and placed his foot on
the king's neck and made him recog
nize the papal power. This was July
23 , 1177. This shows how some men
use power when It Is given unto them.
In front of this church Is a largo open
court or rlazzotta , where people feed
the thousands of pigeons trom 2 to 4
o'clock each day. and 1 am sure our
party enjoyed this novel experience
very much , and then the birds are so
tame and will eat out of one's hands.
Nearby Is a clock tower on which are
two bronze figures which strike the
hours on the big bell and then bronze
figures come out to mark the time , one
for each hour , and the days here are
marked by from 1 o'clock up to 24
The square Is surrounded witli shops
and stores of a thousand kinds. Near
by Is the Doges' palace , on the Grand
canal. This Is a wonderful building ,
now used for a picture gallery. The
best and finest paintings here are :
"The Israelites Crossing the Dead
Sea" ; "Christ in Glory ; " "Jacob's Re
turn Home" ; "The Angel Driving the
Vices Away" ; "The Battle of Lepan-
to" ; "The Adoration of the Savior. "
Hut the most famous of all Is "Para
dise , " by Tintoretto. This picture Is
GOxlOO feet , and if Paradise In any
wise competes with this , as wo truly
believe thnt it greatly surpasses any
picture , it is Indeed a grand good hap
py place and most of all to be sought
Infamous Prison Under Palace.
rndorneath the palace is the in
famous prison where the captives wore
kept , and these are dingy damp cells ,
and death would surely be a pleasure
Instead of years spent In these horrible
rible places. Just above these cells
and over a canal is the Bridge of Sights ,
where women , wives and sweethearts
came to weep for loved ones who had
been sent to Imprisonment.
The cheapest ride I ever had on a
steamer was in Venice , where I took
an hour's ride for two cents. It was
here I met a Mrs. Ilutchlns of Indian
apolis , a classmate of mine while a
student in DePauw university.
Venice Is a city of 2r)0,000 ) people ,
and thousands of tourists are dally in
the town. From Venice we took a
long run on the train to Uelluno , a
beautiful little city in the mountains.
Here we chartered a coach and took a
two days' coaching trip through the
Tyrolese Alps of forty-seven miles.
This was a beautiful trip , as we wound
our why up over mountain after moun
tain , each one covered with the eter
nal snow. We spent one night at Cor
tina , just over the line in Austria. It
was very cold here , snow being all
around our hotel. We secured car
riages here for a still higher drive
over the new Dolomite road of ten
miles through a region of unsurpassed
beauty. It has been called the pearl
of the Tyrolean mountain-world , and
Its sublime grandeur surely justifies
Its name of the Alpine Paradise of
Tyrol , for not even the wildest Imag
ination can possibly conceive a more
bewildering array of phnntnsticnlly
shaped mountain giants or more va
riegated lines of richly tinted peaks
and spires that tower into the blue
sky on every side , all white in the
glistening sun. The ancient burgs and
castles scattered over the mountains
increase the charm of natural beauty.
A large snow plow had to go before us
and open a road for us. After passing
over the mountains we were told 8,738
feet high , we came to Toblach , where
we took the train for Innsbruck ,
Again we passed through a wonderful
mountain scenery , leaping from moun
tain to mountain and passing from one
feet deep on every one. We came at
last into a beautiful valley to the oily
of Innsbruck , the capital of Tirol , a
city of 50,000 people. Hero we spent
a. few days and feasted on the pictures
in the royal palace and visited the
tunnel to another , rnd snow ten to 100
"Hofkirche , " named after the patriot
Andreas Hofer , who fought against
surrendering Tirol to Bavaria. Gener
al Hofer was captured and ordered
shot by Napoleon.
As I sit in my hotel and look down
in the valley I see parks , gardens ,
green trees and fruit , then I raise my
eyes up the mountain and they are
crested with the snow. So here I am ,
in one second I see the summer scene ,
but the next I see the frost of the
north pole. Our party Is all well and
we are having a great time.
I must say goodbye.
Charles Wayne Ray.
Innsbruck , Tirol , May 13 , 1910.
A Visit to Dresden.
Dresden , May 22. We have spent a
very delightful time in Dresden , the
capital of Saxony , located on the Elbe
river , 11C miles southeast of Berlin.
This is a modern , up-to-date city of
600,000 people and is a popular center
for American tourists , and just now
the town is flooded with these globe
trotters. Some are here for a few
days only , but others are here for one ,
two and three years.
The streets are elegantly paved
with either block , wood , s one or ce
ment and are clean and well kept.
However , you will often see that the
street sweepers are women some
times real old women. The stores are
large and fine in appearance , but are
generally confined to one line of goods
one store for gloves , another for
hats , shirts and so on , and on Sunday
these stores are all closed and canvas
is placed over the show windows so
that goods are not to be seen on the
Sabbath. The railway station Is a fine
large marble building , very neat and
clean. There are three beautiful
churches here the Presbyterian , Luth
eran and Roman Catholic.
The royal palace is a magnificent
place. It is the homo of the king of
Saxony. The decorations , furniture
and furnishings are very costly. On
the outside wall facing the main street
are painted the pictures of all the for
The royal art gallery commands the
attention of the world , for it has 2.GOO
pictures , Most of those are master
pieces. One of the principal attrac
tions hero Is the "Grosao Garten , "
which Is a large park , two miles long
and one mile wide , and Is a.very beau
tiful place. Flowers , trees and nature
beauties are elegant ; then the little
lake Is a mass of fishes and I thought
how M. C. Ilnzcn. Dr. 1) . K. TIndall
and 1) ) . Mnthowson would like to have
a chance to drop their hooks In and
try their luck.
Meat Cheaper There.
The big steamers ply up and down
tiie river and do a large business. 1
have noticed that moats are cheaper
here than In America. Ham and ba
eon are Hi cents per pound.
One can rldo several miles on the
street cars for two cents , and on a
bus for one cent for a rldo.
This Is a center for musicians , and
many are here from America and also
from England. The much talked of
llnlley's comet has passed over with
out any serious injury to our world ,
and people here who were very much
excited before have settled down to a
once more quiet life. The recent re
port concerning the navies of the world
gives the United States second and
