rtciio, Nov., July 0. While there Is
iiiubIc nud laughter todny lu Jnck
Johnson's enmp, where the black I
heavyweight champion of the world
and his followers exult, there Is gloom .
and somber silence nt the Jeffries J
, stronghold, where the white gladiator
grieves over the loss of both the cham
pionship and the right to make the
proud boast that he Is the "retired, un-
defeated champion of the world." It
Is a bitter day today for Jeffries.
The thousands "of Callfornlans who
came )"re proud of him and confident 1
of his invincible prowess have all de- !
parted with the exception of a few
score who have lingered behind. The
thousands who took the first trains
back to the coast seemed dazed, and
They as well as the sporting men
from other parts of the country havo
spent the hours since the battle debat
ing the white man's defeat, and, whllo
opinions differ as to the cause, the
general tone of the comment shows
that Jeffries has lost more than the
He has, however, won In dollars and
cents what nn average American
would call a substantial fortune.
Jnck Johnson turned over the sport
ing world when he knocked out James
J. Jeffries in the fifteenth round.
It was sudden, tills defeating of a
hitherto unbeaten man. It camo swift
ly, like the dropping of some bolt that
.wrecks n 10,000 horsepower dynamo.
Hardly had the bell sounded when
the lightning movement of tho negro's
right arm in an uppercut ended in a
thud The tremendous heat of the
white fighting man swung back as the
glove lauded on his jaw Just to the
right of the midchln. His torso re
laxed, his knees trembled, then crook

Sixteen thousand people leaped to
their feet, and tho great dish of the
arena was so still that those eltting

the black champion's teeth as he
snapped his Jaw shut ami stood wait
ing over tho fallen fighter.
The timekeeper hud counted nine.
Jeffries, his head swinging from side
to side on his thick neck, struggled to
his feet. Hardly had ho straightened
when two terrible Jjlows shot over hl3
feebly rising guard. A right and left
uppercut to tho chin followed. Down
the whlto man tumbled. This timo his

legs were crooked over tho whlto

Dr. Swift was optimistic as well
as patriotic in his Sunday night ser
mon. From Deut. 4, 9 he took his
text, "Lest we forget." He paid
earnest tribute to the founders of
the nation and the bravery and de
votion to God and principle they
showed in the dark days of the Rev
olution. He told how Robert Mor
ris, the rich Phlladelphian, raised
?50,000 In one morning for George
Washington's suffering army, and
narrated other incidents of Revolu
tionary self sacrifice in this and oth
er states. He showed that, despite
the howl of pessimists, there is still
goodness and truth and morality in
the American people, and that they
will live up to their heritage.
The American flag was over the
pulpit nnd "America" was the closing
"How to make a better country,"
was Rev. Will H. Killer's theme
morning and night. He urged his
morning congregation to make the
most of themselves mentally, mor
ally and physically, and In that way
to build up the nation as a whole.
In the evening he deplored the
growth of class spirit and urged
more democracy and broad-minded,
tolerant judgment of our fellows.

Rev. George S. Wendell did not
preach a Fourth of July sermon. In
the evening he spoke on "Lead,
Kindly Light" nnd paid a tribute to
the talent and Interesting personal
ity of Rev. Dr. John Henry Newninn,
the author, who was an Episcopal
rector but who died a Roman Catho
lic. Next Sunday, Mr. Wendell says,
he will not consider any hymn, but
later ho will take up others.
They come together, and Jack hooks
left to ear. Johnson spoke to a man In
the crowd, saying, "Hello, Tom." He
hooked left to Jim's swollen mouth,
but missed left uppercut Ho uppercut

Drought About Hy Sudden Change
From Wet To Hot, Dry Weather.
Says a dispatch from Hnrrisburg:
Scores of Inquiries have been re
ceived at tho department of agricul
ture tho past week from about half
the counties asking tho why nnd
wherefore of tho trees shedding their
leaves during June, as if tho month
were really October.
State Economic Zoologist H. A.
Surfnco says the cause Is apparently
the sudden chnngo from tho pro
longed rnlny spell to seaBonnblo sum
mer weather. Tho hot, dry spell
came so suddonly the trees could
not draw up moisture into the leaves
with sufficient rapidity, and this
causes tho leaves to fall. In very
few cases are Insects responsible.
"Tho remedy," said Surface, "is
simple. Break up tho ground under
the treo with a pick. Scatter fer
tilizer, like nitrato of BOdn, on tho
ground, carrying It somewhat be
yond tho spread of tho limbs. Use
from half a pound to four pounds
of soda, according to tho slzo of tho
tree. Then saturate tho ground
thoroughly with water."
