There Is no use denying (hot n lot ot
feminine Interest In contorliiR about
the Carpentler training quarters.
Hut though mysteries and ccnt
seem to be the ordor ot the day
hern is, where, ono little secret U
going to bo turned right ilde out to
the public gnio.
The fact that female forms roar
be seen prowling about ttio cow
pasture's dlitant fence trying, .to
get near George' training gyma
doenn't mean that American wom

of rolling on floors, morning and
night, whirling ones arms around
like plnwbeels till ono becomes
ditty, going through all thoso box
ing moTomenta might be simplified
until life were worth living.
Tb secret preparation of Georges'
food is In the hands ot bla special
cook, Henri Marcot. The menu Is
directed and supervised by Trainer
Wilson. There Isn't a chance for
the diet fans getting1 the recipes
and the system at least until after
the fight. (
Thoy ssy Carpentler Is massaged
with a special preparation. Wilson
won't tell what It Is which adds to
ttio general mystory.
The baseball fever will again
como to tho surfaco Sunday among
tho patrons of the city lcaguo
games when thoy loam that a num
ber ot surprlsos are In storo for the
attendants at tho PIumbob-Ewauna
and Jewcl-Copco gamee. Tho news
oven surprlsod the sporting depart
ment of this nowspaper. No- one hod
aay Idea that tho Copcos had any
thing special hidden up their
"sleeve" since they wandered over
to Yrcka and lost their scalps to a
bunch of "Juice pluggera" working
for tbo same company. They say
they are out tor scalps themselves,
and that tho bunch of egg-scrambler's
looks llko rcadr money to thbm.
Manager Thompson and Mascot
Mather ot the Copcos were button
holed and beseeched to tell just
what their "mystery" was, but with J
smiles and twinkling eyes, the re
porter was frankly told that the
only way to find out tor sure was
to go out to Modoc Park Sunday af
ternoon and see for himself. Man'
ager Thompson says that the team
will be revelation. Just what
"revelation"' means Is beyond the
writer's comprehension, but It his
opinion was sought,, he might sug
gest that the jnlce stingers were
going to be "shockingly rude with
their bsts" on tbo league leaders.

Tho unsuccessful attempts to lure
Chof Marcot and Ous Wilson Into
divulging a few secrets being futile
and Carpentler being unapproach
able, It has been suggested that
after the fight Oeorges might make
a fortune by giving a course of In
structions, with special menus on
"How' I retain my perfect figure."
Now, while Georges Is alto a per
fect gentloman It does get on his
norvrs not to bo able to gate at the
skyllno without seeing a female
head sllhouttcd against tho far hor
izon of the cow pasture.

i WTLL LEAD ALL
tNHW YOltK, Juno S3. The
bempscy-Carpentlor boxing bout for
' the world'a championship at Jersey
City, July 2, will ilruw tho groatost
'gate" In tho history of sport.
A month before tho fight, Pro
moter "Tax" Hlckard announced
that the seat sales totaled 1650,000.
Blnco that day the sale of all seats
has gone on briskly except far the
ISO pasteboards, which aro ex
hausted,' and the general admission
oats, In bo placed on salo the day
of tho fight, nickard estimates
that approximately 66,000 persons
will pay 11,000,000 to view the,MoGovorn-Krne
ring action at Hoylo's Thirty Acres,
t .Thoeo figures will ccllpso by far
all previous, records for ring con
tests or any other sport" In this
Country. The Wlllard-Dompsoy bat
tle, at Toledo, Ohio, which estab
lished the provlous record, drew
451,00p at the box office, a puny
flguro as compared, with what tlm
coming apoctaclo will attract.

the largest and most wldoly pat

Tho Dompfloy-Carpontler bout may
tako up a lot ot time when discus
sIooh aro being hold among tho local
boxing fans as to the probable out
come ot tho groat contest In Now
Jersey but intorost and comment Is
being stirred as to the rosults of tho
bouto that will bo held in this city on
July 4-5. A lot of things twill happen
hero that tho local peoplo can see tor
thomsolves whllo all that transpires
in New Jersey will have to bo rolayed
all tbo way across the continent and
bo rocolvod second bawled, and
that's where tho local exhibitions
havo the best of It,
For two days now, a crowd of the
boxing fraternity havo asnombed ti
tho Doramland pavilion to watch the '
workouta of the two boxers who now I
are on the field of action, Babe
Iltuq and Jack Burns, and an Insight
from tho "shadow" tactics displayed
by both men gives tho audience an
Idea of Just what they will do on tho
day when they enter the roped arena.
Kxpcrtonco shows, to tho most cas
ual obsorvor, In tho cao ot Blue and
one roadll perceives In his action
with the mitts, when dancing around
and boxing tho "unknown" oppon
ent, that ho hoe been up against tho
real artlclo more than onco. It
brings a smllo to most ot the on
lookers when thoy see him suddenly
cover and dftdgo tho blows ot his opr
onont then launch out in an offen
sive Just as ho would wero ho tack
ling a rival. Bluo takes to his train
ing with a seriousness that tho no
vlco docs not understand and from
romarks passed, the casual observer
Is wondering' why he gets so worked
lip when no ono opposes him. Bluo
told ono man that his work In this
particular. Is as real to him as
though his opponont woro opposite
htm and it has helped him wonilor
fully In his career. '
njtio shows oxcollont muscular do
volopment irr his broad shouldors,
wojll shaped arms1 andt- faporing
waist. His legs aro elondor but well
muscled. When time comes for don
ning tho mitts for a few rounds
with Ilurna, llluo simply toys with his
partnor. Tho fans onjoyod tho work
out yestorday afternoon when a two
round go was staged. Only onco did
Blues' "fighting face" loom up and
that was (when Burns went aftor
him to draw him out.
Jack Burns goes to work eagerly
and oponly states that be has quite a
task ahead of him to get Into perfoct
trim but road work, bag punching
and the tricks that Blue will show
hlra, wilt work wonders
humbled that bunch, sot gently,
but downright shamefully and it
will be ao team of happy-go-lucky
hair-cutters and kitchen-robber
who will stack op against the nUll
men. Nay, aay, Sweet Mabel, not
after that 1 to 0 game at Bonaasa
Sunday. The six bit a ahot boys
say that It is fair enough to pull
that stuff out In tho bushes, but It
does not work in the city league,
not unless sanctioned first, and no
body has "Kings' Exed" them for
this game Sunday.
Now Just what the fans can di
gest from this situation Is hard to
say, for even the wlso"mes are "up
in tho air" with all tho mysterious
pussy-footing that. tho managers are
doing, the exchange ot secrets be
tween members of each club why,
some act as If they knew the presi
dent of tho "Home Brow League,"
and hade, open sesame to his collar,
and had open sesame to his cellar,
"cacho" than do the playora and
managers when one tries to learn
the truth ot the coming games Sun
day. Since the layoff for the benefit ot
the outsldo games, a number ot
shako-ups have taken place In the
teams, and a different type of game
Is oxpected Sunday. It Is reported
that 'one Jewel will be glad he has
a Job where "found" Is Included,
should his team lose, and a long
haired mill man will aavo at least
$1, should the Ewaunas annex tho
gamo Sunday from the Plumbobs.
It Is ono ot thoso mysteries which
requires a Hawkshaw or a Sherlock
Holmes, with Nick Carter as first
assistant to ferret out tho trnth.

their little pink tea scandal.

tho time when his hand was broken.
Burns delights in pushing the fight
ing but does not carry it too far.
There hoe' beon no unfavorable
comment passed upon the two boxers
when at Work and It seems tb'at most
of the spectators sense at once the
experience that each man has had
from the manner In which thoy han
