Trip With California Heavyweight Re gcrdcd as Preliminary Step to Bi- gBattleHe Recently Weighed 260 Pound Corbcli In Training By THOMAS F CLARK Is James J Jeffries retired heavy weight champion to return to the ring and fight Jack Johnson 1 This is the question that has been agitating the sporting public for the past few weeks At present all indications point to a future battle between the pair Jef fries has disposed of Ills holdings in his Los Angeles figLt t lu and has agreed to go on a thctricl tour with Al Kaufman the alifcrnia heavyweight as a sparring pat ber If reports are to be believed tLc big fellow has placed himself in the hands of Billy Pelaney the astute who first saw great possibilities in Jim Jeffries and melded the crude youngster into the winds greatest heavyweight pu gilist While Jeffries has not announced his return to the ring his tour with Kauf man is but t preliminary tou worlds championship battle He has actually started in to train in Los Angeles and while on the road hewill do some strenuous work with Kaufman This mode on the part of the big fellow is taken to mean that he will soon an nounce his return When Jeffries entered the gymnasi ujn recently he tipped the scales at 2GO pounds stripped it is said and declared to several friends that if he ever fought again he would have to take off at least thirtyfive pounds Billy Delaney says Jim can easily take off thirtyfive pounds in six months and that he can also get into old time physical condition If Jef fries should decide to fight Johnson the Lnllermaker would be compelled to reduce gradually which would be accomplished by long runs on the road steady work in the gymnasium and dieting As the big follow is only thirtyfour years old ring experts say that he could train down and be strong and fast enough to give a good account of himself in a battle with Johnson But with Jeff willing to make a match It must not be forgotten that he would have to wait fur Johnson to name the date of the encounter Johnson if lie does not keep out of the ring for a year or more will have plenty of work cut out for him as Sam Langford and Joe Jeannette both colored will try to meet him in Lon don while according to Willus Britt Stanley Ketchel the present middies weight champion says he will m Jre a match with Johnson as soon ay the latter is willing to talk business But Ketchels sudden change of front if correctly reported does not cut much figure with sporting men inasmuch as he has persistently refused to ac cept the challenge of Langford All things considered therefore it looks as if negotiations for a Jeffries Johnson fight if Jeff comes back will JIM JEFFRIES THE CENTRAL LIGHT El PUOItilSlI AT PRESENT not begin for some time to come Jef fries however will probably go on the road and pick up a small fortune in the meantime His partner In the Los Angeles booze emporium says that Jeffries is after coin and that he will resume boxing in order to fit himself for real work in the ring Jim Corbett has taken the fact that a negro holds the title so much to heart that he has started training in view of a bout with Johnson Corbett Is fortytwo years old but says that with six months training he will beat the colored man Corbetts declaration that he Is to reenter the ring Is not taken seriously by the sporting public Gentleman Jim Is nil in as far as fighting Is concerned Is the belief It Is doubtful if Corbett could defeat Johnson when the former was in his prime The colored giant Is just as clever as Corbett ever was and can deliver a much harder wallop Corbett Is only a boxer he never was a fighter and the general opinion is that JOhn- son would kriock him out In jhj time If the pair ever met r DIRECTORY 7 lI KeitMckv Avoiding to the last census Ken tucks has

should have an eastern ora southern exposure where the little newcomer who is always an early riser up and dressed long before other members of the family can be a priv ileged character and enjoy the morn lug sunshine both of which make for health and happiness The furnishing may be iirtisjtic and yet suggest sim pliclty White woodwork throughout with an enamel finish which wears well though the dull is more pleasing to the everis the best to choosey With this finish use a sketch scenery nursery paper in delft blue and white Zfh furniture should be painted white to match the trim and the small bu reau the chest of drawers having glass knobs as well as the chairs tables basciuet and baby basket of wick er should be in pure clean white A bathroom connecting with the nurs ery is a luxury but hot a necessity where expense is considered The en ameled nursery toilet sets can be bought for a small sum and are very convenient Some of the sets decorated with flowers are charming- In these days the sanitary conditions are of such important consideration it is well to instill in the mind of the nursemaid the old saying Cleanliness Is next to godliness and to have this room furnished and arranged so that A It can be easily kept clean Have a hardwood stained floor with one large rug of blue and white coloring allow ing an eighteen inch border Book shelves built in the corner spaces of

in a most con spicuous place This is important as overr68make hothouse plants of their chil dren but instead give them plenty of fresh air and exercise The window hangings should be of simple design Little plain white Swiss Dutch sash curtains made with a two inch ruffle down the front and lower edge and run on a rod with an inch and a half heading above the rod are pretty for the fop and middle sash Altogether this makes four little curtains at each window If liked the mIddle curtains can be of chintz in blue and white to match the paper and hung just to the sill at either side with a

correspondence one doesnt mean letters This form of exchanging courtesies has almost gone out of style Few people receive letters any more in the true sense of the word Intimate members of the family write each other at more or less frequent intervals to exchange family news or ask and answer questions The modern definition of corre spondence is a mass of notes answers to invitations letters on business char ity philanthropy and appointment making Ones best embossed paper with monogram and street number is too expen sive to use up by the quire a week in this fashion On the writing desks of women who live a wide life there are stacks of small pads which are in closed In colored morocco These are of good paper with a strong edge and are detached without giving the look of being torn off They are used for letterslandThey will not serve for answering in vitations to weddings or formal dinners or any of the affairs for which en graved invitations are sent out but they do for a multitude of other things and are a great convenience and a sav ing of money There Is also an oblong card made of slightly thicker paper which may bear the street number if one wishes to go to that expense

PerjuryFurther Delay In the Trial of the Coopers For Shooting Carmack Nashville Tenn Jan 29In the trial of the Coopers and John Sharp for the shooting of Former Senator Carmack Judge Hart made the fol lowing ruling in the case of Juror Leigh I have given the case care ful consideration weighing the testi mony for and against the juror The charge of drunkenness is controvert ed but it is evident that the juror is biased and as such the retaining oj him would make the jury a preju diced one Therefore I excuse Mr Leigh from service It developed that Juror Whitworth one of the men accepted is in deli cate health and that his physical con dition as represented by his physician is such as to cause the court grave uneasiness as to his ability to continue in the box through a long trial Under these conditions it is considered possible that Judge Hart will excuse him The defense served notice that it would ask the court to dismiss the eight men left on the jury on the ground that the dismissal of Leigh had prejudiced the others against the defendants The formal motion to this effect will be filed later The first witness against Juror Jackson swore that the juror who is a blacksmith would put a shoe or two on a horse collect for the work and go three miles to a saloon for a drink before he would finish the job Squire Lewis who has lived near Jackson for 25 years saw him sober once in the 25 years At this point the defense admitted that Jackson was unfit and consented to his dis missal This leaves seven men it the box The court next read a letter from Mrs J M Whitworth concerning her husbands condition He said two physicians agreed that Whitworths condition was such that to have him serve might mean his death Under such circumstances Judge Hart said he felt it best to relieve Mr Whit worth who was tue fifth juror chosen The state objected to Whitworths dismissal and the court ordered the physicians summoned forthwith De cision was reserved Juror

Several Delicious Ways of Preparing This Much Used berry iThere are all Uinds of ways of preparing cranberries Some cooks serve them as a very acid thin sauce and take the trouble to strain it This is a mistake Cranberries should be heavily sweetened and cooked with little water so that they can be molded in pretty individual molds A quart of cranberries require only a cupful of boiling water Boil stead fly rather rapidly for twenty minutes add two cupfuls of sugar and cook for ten minutes longer An exact time must be given in cooking cranberries if one wishes to have them jelly prop erly Almost any cranberries will jel ly perfectly if cooked exactly according to these directions Do not strain them Pour into small china This gives a dark rich looking moldsI that is not too acid yet the individuality of the fruit Spicedcranberries are something like spiced currants Put two even tablespoonfuls of ground cinnamon one of ground cloves and half a tablespoonful of ground allspice into a mus lin bag and tie it Simmer it In a cupful of coldwater for half an hour Then add the spiced water to pounds of cranberries three and a hat pounds of sugar and two cupfuls of cider vinegar Cook slowly until thick and then r up in jars Some house wives senothis in place of the ordinary cranberry sauce as a novelty Cranberry sherbet is a refreshing dessert When not frozen very stiff it is sometimes used as a unique sorbet to serve at an elaborate turkey dinner This ice melts easily so that it should be served immediately To make it boil a quart of cranberries with two cupfuls of water until Add two cupfuls of sugar and stir thujuice of one or two lemons and freeze Some housewives may prefer the ice sweeter For a novel cranberry pie have at hand a cupful of cranberries half a cupful of seeded raisiiis a cupful of tooblespoonful of flour and a teaspoonful of vanilla if you like the flavor The pie will be just as good if not bet ter without it Cut the berries in half and cover

responsibility Lincoln seemed disturbed and strode across the room several times Finally his face lighted up I have it I mow who is responsible he cried rWbo Mr President Who Is it the tour cried IP chorus Gentlemen General Lee is the man That sort of wit jcuts to the quick One day a clerical delegation called upon Lincoln and the large voiced spokesman said that they had been sent by the Lord to insist on a certain policy Well gentlemen replied Mr Lin coIn it is not often one Is favored with a delegation direct from the All mighty Lincoln was never a vain man on the score of personal pulchritude and often told the story of the ugly man who handed him over a knife which had been given him as the homeliest man in the country He was convinced that a mistake had been made and Llncoln was entitled to the knife A varuhifc of this story is also told but may not be true One day a man with a face like a toad drew a revolver and pointed It at Lin coln What seems to be the matter said the future president Well replied the stranger some years ago I swore an oath that if I ever myselfIcoln scrutinized the features of the other closely and exploded Shoot me for if 1 am an uglier man

Yes maybe he could for awhle replied the miller but how long could he keep ft up Till he starved to death flashed Lincoln a lOUQ of the most Jmous Lincoln jokes was his horse trade which was to be sight unseen At the appoint ed time Lincolns adversary a certain judge excited shouts of laughter by leading up the sorriest old crow bait in the county The merriment was redoubled when Abe appeared on the scene carrying a sawhorse but neither outburst equaled that which greeted Lincolns statement that It was the first time he had ever been cheated In a horse trade The great man always tried to alle viate embarrassment whatever the cause One day a young man brought a glowing letter of Introduction from a certain governor of Maryland One of the secretaries caused the young chaps face to redden with guilt by declaringAthat this governor was long since dead Oh never mind that said Lincoln This Is far more Interesting would rather get a letter from a dead man than from a live one any day This recalls another soft answer He once congratulated Connecticut on filling her quota of soldiers The go ernor of New York thereupon felt hurt that he was not complimented also for New York had fined her quota as well Ah said the president consoling ly when Mrs Lincoln passes me a cup of tea I never think of compli menting her for It I expect It This recalls his famous illustration of a tea

He took the pencil and wrote Always pronounce English as it Is not spelt SpeJI as jt is not pro flouncedS The Bite of a Rattler The Cherokee Indians cure for the bite of a rattlesnake is at once so
