The boxing carnival in the K. of
L. hall Saturday night was a grand
success. The preliminary bout be
tween W« Kelliher and N. Cunning
ham, two local boxers, was fast and
devoid of anything that looked like
science. After four rounds of terrific
slugging it was declared a draw.
Kelliher should have gotten the de
cision. The principals of the main
bout were slow in putting in their
appearance. McGeever was first in
the ring. He was followed a few
moments later by Travis. When
stripped, McGeever looked a great
deal the heavier man. Although it
was claimed that he was only nine
pounds heavier than Travis, 8 ounce
gloves were used. The first 3 rounds
were a pretty exhibition of scientific
boxing, honors being about even..
Both men seemed confident. In th<*
4th McGeever started into do hx' s
man, and Travis clinched repeatedly
to save himself. This round was
McGeever's. The sth was an exhi
bition of scientificsluggling. Travis
showed great gameness and Ability to
stand punishment. In the/, <;th ftn d
last round McGeever lai t <led hard
and often, hitting Travi s, w hen and
where he pleased. Tra v i s saved him
self from a knockou t by clinching.
He clinched 14 tinges in this round.
When time was c a iied he held to the
ropes for Referee Shannon
of Athens gave McGeever the decis
ion, but at thf. request of both boxers

An amusing game of base ball was
played on the Laporte diamond Sat
urday, between the home team and
Lopez's cracked nine. To tell the
story briefly the local team had a
bad day of it while Jjopea played
right from the shoulder. They bat
ted like fiends and the feet of the
local players who merely chased the
ball, felt like those of a recruit who
had drilled steadily tII day after
the agony was over. Not being
present it is impossible for us togo
into details a'iul tell how the 16 to 1
scores were made, even had we been
present, the attempt would be futile,
as Mark .Twain only, of all living
humorists could write it as it should
IH» written. The score card showed
no tftar plays nor even any good
onefc'. There were errors and iniss
liaips in profusion. This however
c«ln be attributed to lack of practice.
.The score Itself furnishes substantial
proof that base ball is a science, and
that off men are not scientists. The
score: 38 to 7, favoring Lopez.
