CHURCH LOST A TREACHER Slum of Toot Unit (Slant Altered Plnn of Life nnd Proroketl 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. Stnrt llnxpr, 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 weight champion. 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 carry today aftor,fuindreds of ring 'bat- ties. The blow khocked me senseless. I was? unconscious for threo hours and a half, and the blood that ran down my throat strangled me so that I camo very near dyng. At last they brought mo to. Tho coin I was carrying had flown out of my hand when I was struck. I re membered that I had started for some Bnuff, but I had nothing to buy It with. so I staggered home In tho dark empty- nanuca. The Home Trouncing;. "When I slipped In through tho door my mother only saw that I had a bloodv nose. My training for the ministry hadn't mciuaed fighting. I'd often been warned that I must not fight. " 'You'vo been fighting, have your nsked my mother. And without anothei word she turned and took a stout whip down from its nail on tho wall and pro ceeded to give me the worst whipping 1 ever had in my life. Then alio sent rot to bed. "Next morning sho came to my room. 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 rn-ver went to either a school or a church afterward. My mother used to send mt to church, but I'd He on the grass out side and listen to the hymns, because I loved tho singing, nnd then ask some, body tho minister's text, so I could tell what It was when they abked mo at home. "The trouble was that all this time 1 could only think of tho man who had beaten me. Week after week the desire for revenge grew. But I was a slim little fellow, onlv 11. nnd I ln l'i v,n,. , .'chance to fight If I met him. Brooding over it put an idea Into my head. I'n work und grow as strong as I could, ana Itarn how to fight, so that I'd bo ready when I was big enough to tackle him. Pructlcliiir for Itprriiire. "I went to my brother's blacksmith shop and Induced him to give mc two old leather aprons. I out these up Into pat terns for boxing gloves. I'd never seen any, but I'd heard about thorn. I sewed tho gloves with string and, stuffed them with leather clippings and cotton, ana then got the other boys of the neighbor hood together and boxed with them every day. "Ill a couple of years I could outbox any. of tbem eailly, and I was growing tall. Kvery night before I went to nlep I thought of what I'd do to that foot bait player when I giew a little bigger. 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. Ing me strong fnst enough, nnd I got another Job as a striker In Parson & An drew's foundry, swinging a heavy sledge. This was great work, but after threo yearn I threw a hot tire over the fore man one day and I got fired. "While I was working there, 15 years old, I had my first ring fights, to a fin ish with bare knuckles, London prlin ring rules. I won them all with knock outs. My next Job after leaving the foundry was as a painter, then as a paper hanger. I could do three men's work, and did It. Next I went to'work as a horseshocr for my brother. I stuck to that Job five years. "All this time I never forgot about the foot ball captain. By the time I was 17 I concluded I could whip him. and the " " years i spent all my iDare t time " " , "".

PITY THE TRIALS OF BARBERS Hand of Tonsorlnl Artist la Stomp Trnreler In Course of n Year's WorU. 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 for shaving. 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.
