Spirit of Revenue.
I take little risk of being crltlclied
when I say that no living boxer knows
moro about the fine points ot the sport
than Rob Fltislmmons. It was Rob's
marvelous fighting brain as well as the
mighty loft fist they used to call the
"freckled thunderbolt" that won him
tho heavyweight championship of the
world when he faced Jim Corbett at Car
son at noon, March 17, 1S37.
Rob Fltislmmons was a genuine mid
dleweight that day. He weighed exactly
1M pounds stripped. Never slnco th
boxing glove was Invented have so much
fighting fqree and skill been combined
with that slight weight. Corbett was the
cleverest of the big men ot his time, and
Fltislmmons whipped him, wore him
down and knocked him out In fourteen
round. Wnit.., hl flehtln hrnln was
better than Corbett's nnd because clean
living had given him endless stamina ana
1 courage and self-confidence.
And Fltislmmons was as true a sports
man ns ever lived. Almost a novice, he
met tho great "Nonpareil," Jack Demp
sey, for tho middleweight championship
of tho world. In a few rounds he had
the mastery. Then, when Dwmpsey'o de
feat was sure, freckled Rob held back his
blows and pleaded with Dcmpsey to re
sign the unequal contest. "You'll havo'to
knock mo out: I'll never quit," said tho
champion. And Fltislmmons, after ap
pealing to Dempscy's seconds and the
referee, reluctantly forced tho fight and
slipped over tho finishing blow. Then,
picking Dempsey up In his arms, he car
ried Jack to his corner, with tears
streaming down his face, For ,the mo
ment Fltislmmons forgot that he had
Just won a world's championship title
and a fortune He saw only the pathos
of tho defeat that ended tho career of
a famous champion and a game man.
The story of Bob Fltislmmon' start as
a boxer has never been told. It is gen
erally known that lie was a horscshoer
In Australia nnd that ho camo to Amor
lea an unknown and leaped almost at
onco Into world-wldo fame as middle
But Fltislmmons wns 27 years old when
he came here. He must have had some
history in Australia before coming to
America. World's champions aren't made
In a few months. It tnkes years of fight
ing nnd hard work to get where Fltislm
mons was wheri he beat Dempsey, and
later on Corbett, and then Gardner, tak
ing the middleweight, heavyweight and
light heavyweight "world championships
In succession. Bob sat down nnd told
the story of his start, and here It Is:
"My mother began by training me for
tho ministry," said Bob. "Until I was 11
years old I went to church and sang In
tho choir twice a week, and to Bible class
twice on Sundays. But for a box; of
snuff nnd a kicked foot ball I would
have been a minister todny.
''We were living In New Zealand, about
1,500 mlieb across the sea from Australia.
One day my mother sent mo to buy a box
of snuff at a chemist shop near our
homo, On the way I passed nn open field
where two foot ball teams were playing.
I walked slowly, watching the game and
wishing that I could get a chanco to kick
the ball. I was very curious to !now
how It would feel. Just whllo I was wish
ing somebody kicked It over the fenco
and It rolled right to my feet. So I
kicked it back again as hard as I could.
"A second later the captain of ono of
tho teams, a big fellow over six feet tall,
leaped the fence and ran straight at me.
Before I had any idea what he meant
to do 'he struck mo a terrific blow on the
nose, smashing it and cutting a gash
across tho brldcp that Is the onlv mf t

Tho coin I was carrying had flown out
of my hand when I was struck. I re

The Home Trouncing;.
"When I slipped In through tho door
my mother only saw that I had a bloodv

mciuaed fighting. I'd often been warned
that I must not fight.
" 'You'vo been fighting, have your

down from its nail on tho wall and pro

My eyes had swollen over night and were
closed tight, and my nde was a sight.
When my mother saw for the first time
how badly I was. hurt sho cried over me
und told me again and again how sorry
she was shhad whipped me, and I told
her how it all happened. Then she sent
for a doctor. I was hurt Friday after
noon. Saturday there was no school, and
on Sunday my eyes wcru still closed, so
for the first time I was let out of going
to' church. But Monday I was made to
go to school. There the scholars laughed
ut me so much that I ran home, and I

afterward. My mother used to send mt

I We were right by the sea and I heard
about what great fighters -sailors were.
I So I made up my mind to run awuy and
be a sailor for a year or two. I had
fixed It up with the captain of a bark
called tho Isabella Ridley, and was about
to skip out the next morning, when up
came a terrlblo storm In the night and
wrecked the Isabella Ridley and' nine or
ten vessels, driving them high on the
shore. I gave up the sea and got a job
as a carriage painter at seven shillings
a week. In a few month I was a good
painter, having n very steady hand for
tho fine striping. But that wasn't mak.

another Job as a striker In Parson & An

This was great work, but after threo

PITY THE TRIALS OF BARBERS
Hand of Tonsorlnl Artist la Stomp
Trnreler In Course of n
A New Yorker who dotes on mathe
matical calculations has rrsasoned out
that the barber Is about the hardest
dlrven man In the city. He seta forth
his observations for the edification of
barber shop patrons as follows:
For a clean shave Chin, cheeks and
upper Up tho number of strokes was
236, and tho time occupied, Including tho
preliminary lathering and tho final pow
dering, was exactly ten minutes.
Taking tho average rator stroke ns
bring, say, one inch In length, the dis
tance traveled by the blade In removing
superflous hair from tho face Is six yard
one fool and eight Inches.
Consider the barber's shop hours from
8 a. m. to 7 p. m. Deduct one. and a
half hours for meals, and It leaves nine
and a half hours. Assume half of thU
Urns to be taken up with hnlr cutting,
shampooing, waiting for customers, etc..
and It leaves four nnd three-quarters
As not every customer Is clean-shaven,
we must also mako an allowance on tho
number of strokes and on the time ccu
pled. Suppose wo take tho averago num
ber of strokes at 160, and the average
time for each shave as eelght minutes.
This w6uld BlVo time for tho scraping of
about thirty-six customers, and the dls
tance traveled by the raxor would be 6,400
Inches or 160 yards.
T.he number of customers shaved per
week will be about 1W. Allow a fort,
night for the summer holiday, and you
have a total of 9.S00 customers a year,
with a raior stroko distance of 1,470,000
Inches, which Is equal to twenty-threo
miles 353 yards and ono foot.
Further Investigation revealed tho fact
that when tho statistician shaved him
self about 696 strokes aro required to pro
duce a result equal to that obtained by
the barber with his 23fi.-New York Press.
