James J. Corbett, John L. Sulll
Yan has led a tamo and, peaceable

any noncombatant should. The

any more,, ho says, because it is not
Bat It once was. Occasionally
John Indulges himself with retros
3antfair, and finds cause to lament
iiic times that have been, and which
are no more. Pugilism is moribund,
lo nays, and to win a championship
licit nowadays Is not vastly better
than winning the prize for perfect
attendance at Sabbath school.
Ilr. Sullivan belongs to tho old
school of fighters of which tho in
trepid. Jake Kihaln was a notable
member. They didn't use gloves

and when they fought they '.night In
:Uw open air, not for points or de
cisions, but to the ensanguined fin
ish. They knew not a gieat deal
about tho science of boxing, but

"has fought several battle which ap
imcmchod 100 rounds In duration and
which, according to tho dean of tho
3ngilists, possessed a gory glory thnt
will come no more. Speaking of sev
eral recent lights, Mr. Sullivan de
clares them to be denatured com

3Ir. Sullivan Is ono of tho few
men In the world who regret the day
f tho baro-knucklo mills. It is true
ahai fighting has been deprived of
Sis most strenuous features, and that
trickery and deceit have entered tho
game nnd disgusted oven a certain
percentage of tho sporting frater

And some, all too frail, they would

There was nobody left on tho

Of tho cruise of tho good Water
So you always will hear about this

Of n ship with a snowy-white flag
But feel no concern all your
