WASHINGTON, D. C, July 1G.
Although being scientists they
scorned tho superstition, somo of Un
cle Ram's best weather sharps curi
ously enough marked down today's
brand of weather for referenco dur
ing tho next two score days.
This is St. Swlthln's Day. ancient
English legends havo It that It It
rains today thero will bo forty days
of rain to follow, and that if it re
mains clear, thero will follow forty
days of .clear weather. There was a
St. Swithln all right, back In tho
days of long ago and tho legend is
older than tho hills. That seems to
bo as far ns it goes, for ono of tho
ruthlessly unromantlc weather bu
rcau sharps today looked up tho done
for the sarao day for twenty years
back, and bad this to say:
"St. Swithln falls In a month in
which moro rain falls hero in Wash
Ington than during any other period
of tho year. Nevertheless, tho record

twenty years, of the forty days which
follow July IB, tho greater part wero
rainy when St. Swlthln's Day was a
flno old day. Thero never have been
forty consecutive days of rain or
clear weather following St. Swlthln's
Day, as far as I can learn."

LONDON', July 15. The lending
figure in the wide spread campaign
of tux resistance ns n part of the
woman suffrage crusade is the Duch
ess of Dedford Following her re
fusal to pay taxes, tho government
levied ojj the Princes Skating Club
of which she is the owner.
"My reason for resisting tho pay
ment of n property tax," she ex
plained today, "is that I consider it
unjust that women should have to
pay taxes when they have no band
or voice in the making of the laws
which enforce them. I nlso wi-di it
to be known that in spite of the tac
tics adopted by the Women's Soeial
nnd Political Union, I am not de
terred from declaring myself in
favor of modified woman suffrage.
There are ninny women in favor of !.'

movement any public

militancy. By this holding bnck they
lend support to tho impression that
there is no great demand among wo
men for tho imnchisc. there nrc
alf-o many women who Jinvo not stud
ied the question nt all nud who as
sociate it only with the brenking of

gonian. King now poes ns the fountniu
head of fistic knowledgo in Portland.
When Hud Anderson nnd Leach
Cros faced each .at 3:30 p. in. on
the Fourth of July, tho agreement in
to weight, rules of infighting, breaks,
etc., were exactly what both men wen
Mippohed fo like. C'ros is supposed
to be ns dangerous at clone fighting
as any lightweight in the gamo nnd is
just about as rugged us Hud, nud one
nnd one-half inches taller, so where
Hud was at a disadvantage because
of nny agreement signed by Donald
in regard to the clean breaks it is
hard to see.
Hud, nor nnv of Donnld's friends
give him credit for knowing ns much
about tho game as n Tim McGrnth,
"Rawhide" or "Spider" Kelly, but
Hud hns said on more. than one oc
casion that ho will win the champion
ship with Did: Donald ns his mana
ger or not nt all, bo Jack King, ot nl
aspirants for Donald's borth may put
away the hammer.
Whether or not Donald lost any
prestige in signing with Cross, certaiir
it is thnt no one oor put over any
thing on him like tho trick "Cherokee
Tom Jones nnd Wolgast put on King
when hu journeyed from Portland to
San Francisco with the expectation
of taking chnrge of Wolgast's train

lie given tho somewhat unimportant
position of looking nftpr tickets on
the day of the fight.
Mcdford sports know Donald and
