Tha long-looked-for Corbett-Jackson
right ended a few dreamed it would
both men fought to a standstill in sixty
rounds and unable to injure the other in
tha least. Tha men were in the fluent
possible condition. Jackson's black
akin shone like polished ebony. Corbett
in tit ring was the picture of a well
developed, lithe athlete, his extremely
white skin contrasting strangely with
that of the Australian. Th cleverness
of the two men was shown from the
moment they entered tbe ring. Corbett
showed up bravely and confidently, and
Jackson fought admirably, ne was not
aa aklllful as Jim. but Peter weighed
twelve pound more (107 to 185), and

things pretty even. There was a good,

twenty-five rounds the fight was a bril
liant success. Had either of the men
been knocked ont there, the contest
would have gone down to history as the
finest ever fought in California.
All the San Francisco sportsmen that
were able to toddle were t here. Corbett
for half a doxeu rounds did not pay a
bit of attention to the Australian
fighter. His unvarying scheme was to
make a play at jumping back, and in
stead of doing it to setid his left hand at
the narrow line of black skin that
showed between Jackson's guarding
hand and his belt. He usually suc
ceeded. Jackson would try to uppercut
In return, and Corbett would beat Uiat
Dirbett's brilliant boxing showed from
the first round. The two moved about
the ring litbely as two snakes and as
cautiously as two men fighting for
110,000 in cash and a fortune beyond
should. For a while neither took the
offensive. They imply moved around,
watching for an opportunity to send a
fist into any opening that presented, it
self, There were not so many of these
openings, either. Corliett managed to
get in the greater number of blows and
to labor the least. Jackson' great work
in his previous battles ha beeu a pec
liar jerking of his slender body out of
harm's way. Peter missed the trick
when he tried that in this contest. Cor
bett's arms were too long and he was
too long. When he reached for the top
of Jackson's white tight he usually
touched it, an! he tonched .it nsnally
with a retmrt like a bursting paper bag,
Jackson showed his great generalship
in keening Corbett moving backward all
the time. This tired Corbett more than
anything else. Jackson was stronger
than the 8nn Franciscan, but Corbett
more than offset this with superior sci.
ence and agility. Both fought for the
body of his opponent and were severely
punished. Jackson's stomach : and
shoulder were completely goneaud Cor-
bett's hands were practically useless.
After the forty-first round no fighting
was done. A walking match then tx
gan and lasted until the sixty-first round
when the reforee deemed tne ngut "no
contest. It was evident tha the fight
could not be brought to a finish. 1 here
was not a knockdown in the fight,
i The important rounds of the contest
were the sixteenth, twentieth, thirtieth,
thirty-first and forty-first. In these
rounds some hard fighting was done and
it looked at times as if the battle wesjro-,
tng to eud, sometimes in favor of Jack
son and then in CorVett's. Little blood
was shed. Jackson drew first blood in
the sixteenth and Corbett brought forth
the Australian's claret in the eighteenth.
The fight was a test of the Dempsey
and Jem Mace schools of ft gating. Cor
bett fought Demps style all through
and Jackson followed the teachings of
Mace. The decision of "no contest"
make the two men dependent upon tha
generosity of the California club for any
part of the purse they may get. ,,

ITEMS rOR OUR FARMERS.
If the old bone lying around farm,
bouse or about the yard, were gathered
together and burled at the root of fruit
trees, not only would the premise be
greatly improved but the growth of the
tree also advanced, for tree are very
fond of such nutriment a I found in
bone. Fragment of bones are Just a
valuable a bone dut, although their
lenient of fertility will not be found
available in so short a time a if tba
large pieces were reduced to atom,
Bury the bones at least eighteen Inche
below the surface so a not to interfere
with plowing. -

Now that our orchard are about
to be n'planted, pruned and renewed,
a few words may prove of value about
reue wl ng a n orchard. Thoroughly
cultivate the ground between the trees.
Do not be satisfied with one plowing
but cross plow. It is not necessary to
plow nearer the trees than three feet.
Much damage is done to orchard by
careless plowing. Corn I the best
hoed crop for an orchard, and beans
the next. Potatoes should never be
planted lu an apple orchard,, a they
exhaust the potash from the soil and
that is what the apple needs. The
least exhaustive crop should always be
grown In an orchard, or else tbe trees
will be robbed of needed sustenance.
It is a double robbery to make a mead
ow in an orchard and nothing will run
an orchard down so fast The ground
may be plowed In tbe spring, but a bet
ter pluu is to turn over tbe sod in the
autumn In order that ,the trees may
have full benefit of the decayed sod and
the more mellow soil.

The Fitchburg Sentinel tells how a
Leomiuster farmer cured hi horse of a
balky freak by gentle means.
He drove him, attached to a rack
wagon, to the wood lot for a small load
ot wood. The auimal would not pull a
pound. He did not beat him, but tied
him to a tree aud let him stand. He
went to the lot at sunset aud asked
him to draw, but he would not straight
en a tug. "1 made up my mind," said
the farmer, "when that horse went to
the barn, he would take that load of
wood. I went to tbe barn, got blankets
and covered the horse warm, and he
stood until morning. Then be refused
to draw. At noon I went down and
be was probably lonesome and hungry.
He drew that load ot wood the first time
I asked him. I returned and got another
load before I fed him. I then rewarded
him with a good dinner, which he
eagerly devoured. I have drawn sev
eral loads since. Once he refused to
draw, but soon as lie saw ma start for
the house, he started after me with tbe
load. A borse become lonesome and
discontented when left alone, as much as
a person, and I claim that this method,
if rightly used, is better for both man
and iiorso than to beat the animal with

Wo have noticed, says a farmer of
experience, that our garden plat seems
after a few year to get tired seemingly,
of growing crops, and we had been ad
vised to change to some other spot and
rest the soil. We have a better plan
than that, since it takes from one to
two seasons' cultivation to get garden
soil lu good condition. We rotate our
crops on the same piece of ground. It
is a good plan to make a diagram of
tbe pint used for a garden, and have it
marked off into divisions of suitable
proportions for the vegetables required.
Each division should be numbered, or,
what Is better, the name of the vege
table raised thereon written upon it.
These diagrnmsdrawn each year should
be carefully preserved, so that, by re
ferring to them, one could ascertain
just what had been raised on each par
ticular division for years back, and by
this means keep up a systematic rota
tion. A garden to be advantageously
cultivated should lie long and narrow,
thus enabling a horse cultivator to be
used to advantage. SuOh garden veg
etables as rhubarb, asparagus, aud
others of a like kind, requiring two or
more years to reach the proper bearing
condition, should of course, be given a
permanent place for several seasons;
but they, too, need removing about
ouce iu four year in order to got the
best possible results.
