A man who saw tbe Palmer-Sullivan fight at the National Spotting clnb of London some time ago gives an interesting account of the way ihings are rcn in that exclusive sportiug organization. "Only members and their guests can get into the arena, "he said recently, "and everybody wears evming dress. There is room for a big crowd, and when every spectator is in his seat all haw are removed aud smoking is scriet- ly prohibited, V?heu rbe light is under way, perfect order is tnaiurained. If an eioitable ineaibor yells encouragement to tbe contestants, he is promptly ordered to bottle himself \ip, and if he offends •gain he is quickly ejected frpm the building. The referee sits outside of the ring and is in full charge of everything. If he notices anybody who is inclined to be disorderly, be quickly calls upon attendants to put the offender <wt In tbe Sullivan-Palmer figbt tha referee warned tbe American several tunes for foul tactics, and after the twelfth ronnd ended be said: " 'Snllivan, if you v?ere an Englishman, I would have disqualified you in the sixth round, bat as yon are art Ajaorioan I want to give you all th« chalice In "tee •worliT. 'If yon use tha» elbow again, however, I shall have to stop the bout.' " If a boxing club hereabout conld be conducted in such a manner, it would be a novelty never before experienced by ring followers. It is almost always the case that local bouts are artended by some persons who cannot restrain themselves when fighwrs are mixing things up.—.Xevr York Sun.

In the morning he rose early and took a walk to the bail grounds ro see how work was progressing on the grand stand improvements. When ha reached the gate, he was deiiie'd admission. He became indignant, but no explanation was offered. The guard at the gate continued to stubbornly deny him admission. Smothering his auger, Hart walked along the fence until he found a peek hole. Utilizing this, he saw that The workmen were busy. That was what he came to learn, and he returned to his office. On the-way there ie was informed that there was a carpenters' strike on and that the refusal of admission was because of his being taken for a walking delegate, . The guard did not want any of that kind to get in and stop the men •working. "I have been taken for many things," said Hart, "but never for a •workingman.

Herr John Day was about town today exhibiting the model of a tether, an ingenious device of his own Invention. The last number of the Scientific American contains the following reference to Mr. Day's Invsntlon: "The tether is made In adjustable sections, designed to contribute to contribute to the com'ort of an animal feeding, while affording great freedom of movement within prescribed bounds, the movement of the animal in any direction being without danger of entanglement In the tether rope. The improvement has been patented by Jobn Day, of Logansport, Ind., and will solve a long- felt want, as It keeps a horse or any animal in that part of a pasture where It is put and yet gives it space for feeding."
