THE BAKERSFIELD CALIFORNIA^: -FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 27, 1908. WILL BUILD SANATORIUM IN TOWN OF DELANO. (Delano Record.) Dr. M. D. Allen Is planning to build a sanatorium in Delano. He says that Ihe only way he can get practice In this land of perfect health will be to Ret it from other less favorable localities. The excellent climate of this place, and the extremely favorable conditions to recovery from various diseases prevalent in other localities, have Inspired the doctor to build a commodious house suitable for housing and treating patients The history of Delano proves conclusively that the rate of mortality Is exceedingly low and that great numbers Of people have completely regained health by simply becoming residents. Should this plan succeed, there are no reasons to question thnt Delano may eventually become a famous health resort. WILL MEET TONIGHT.

The program, being mixed, offered to all some events that jvere sure to please. The horse racei were excellent, the 4% furlongs, running race being the best that the Hudnut track has yet produced. Fred Stoeckl, riding a Heading Standard motorcycle against Bert Ding ley's "Bluebird" In a five mile race, displayed grit and nerve. After the first three laps the crank hanger _ broke and the pedals and the front 'l sprocket of the machine fell off. This ! left the chain on the back sprocket dragging. Stoeckl was. warned to atop but kept on till the engine went bad and he was forced to leave the race. This race was made up on th« grounds. Stoeckl was given a quartet mile handicap and undoubtedly would have given the automobile a hard run barring the accident. Dingley at the wheel of the "Bluebird" tore off a fast five miles In 7:11, four seconds slower than the Sunset car's track record. The heavy track was against hlnl. This car pitted against Free's Sunset next Sunday will be a great race. The motorcycle races were not up to the standard.

After making a chopping block of Hilly Morris for 13 rounds, Al Nell was last night awarded n decision over Frank Carillo's "find" for a series of the most palpable fouls ever .seen in I lie history of tho ring. Long before Referee Sam Ferguson stopped ihe fight and declare 1 Nell the winner the fans were yelling to have the fight stopped because of Morris' low blows As It was. not even the most steadfast backers of tho loser could deny that they had all that was coming to them from the decision. A subsequent medical examination of Neil by Drs. S. V. West and N. N Brown showed that the last blows hail left plainly dlscernable marks Luckily, the fighter will have no permanent Injury because of them. While Morris was fighting fair the match was a good one. When one man was not leading the other one always was. Nell adopted much the same tactics through every round. He would stall for the first half of the round, until Morris, who se.emed n 'lemon for punishment, had wasted bis steam, and would then come bark and make a veritable punching bag of his opponent. There were times when Morris would send Nell back to the ropes with showers of right and left swings to the body and head, anil twice Nell went to the floor, but each time the knockdowns were the result of wrestling tactics or an overbalancing blow, and Nell managed to guard most of the apparant haymakers that Morris half landed on him. Synopsis of the Fight. In the first round Morris worked bard and had a decided lead. In the second both exchanged hard blows and things looked fairly even, though a left hook closed Morris' right eye and really turned the balance in NeilV favor. In the third round Neil went hard after Billy's other eye, and though he did not succeed in closing It, he brought blood from his nose and mouth. During the rest of the fight the ring resembled a shambles .and both fighters were covered with gore from the waist up. The fourth round was a whirlwind affair. Doth men went at it hard, and one of Morris' rushes made Al drop to his feet, but he was up again in a second and had all the best of the argument. In the fifth Morris apparently drew a little blood from Neil's nose early In the round, but Al recovered later and had the better of the round. The sixth round was a repetition of the fil'th. In the seventh Morris half tripped, half wrestled Neil to the floor. He was up in a second. In the eightb Al went to Ihe floor again, this llnie being overbalanced by a blow to the heail when retreating, after a rush. He \v;is up again at once. Morris went at Noil hard to follow up his suppose,-] advantage. an-I hmde 1 several good irris appeared to be renalnln.i iil^ | lost steam. In the ninth inning Al evened matters up by putting -Morris down. The latter appeared to be surprised, and took the count of nine. Neil went at his man hard to finish him up. but had only a half minutes left. The next round was uneventful. In the eleventh Morris started his foul tactics, and the crowd was soon yelling for the fight to stop. The next two rounds went the same way, and If one blow landed below the belt twenty did. Sam Ferguson finally stopped the unfair contest, and awarded the decision to Nell. The " act was greeted with cheers. The preliminary was a one-sided affair. The original Kid Parker, who now supplants the former Kid Parker at the Hammam baths, put out Kid Burns In two rounds. Burns was not knocked out, but quit after taking a *errible be'.'tttiK. Sam Ferguson refereed both contests In an eminently satisfactory manner. Lem Sill was the announcer. The receipts were $66. r i. The Fmh'ei-.s got half, split 60 and 40. SAN KKANCISCO. No. 26.—Stanley Ketchell of Orand Rapids, regained the middleweight championship of the world today anil reversed his detent of lust September, when he sent Bill Papke. the Illinois Thunderbolt, crashing to the tloor before a well-directed left swing that caught his opponent flush upon the chin. The end came In the eleventh round. Prior to this, Ketchel had demonstrate,! clearly that he was master of his opponent at any kind of lighting. Hound by round Ketchel chose bis opportunities and when opportunities offered phute'l the right to head or body, generally escaping without a damaging return. Relieving his appearance and forcing the fight throughout every minute, Ketchel was stronger up to the moment of the knockout blow. Once during an aggressive moment, they fell in the ringside and toppled through the ropes, wrapped In u close embrace. It was a left to the atom Michigan fighter's glove aloft. Papke, still dazed, seemed unable to realise bis defeat. Two Good Games of Polo Promised ach that sent Papko to the roped at this juncture. In falling Papke sel/.ed his opponent and the force of his rush carried them clear of the platform and over tiie heads of the spectators. A hundred willing hands assisted them to the center and in a moment they were grappling In a clinch. Ketchel was a victor throughout. His appearance during the early I rounds did not tend ID encourage- those who had hacked him nt odds of 10 to 7 and 10 to G, but his awkward delivery of blows deceptively fast seemed to lull Papke into a false sense of security. In the first round Ketchel drove 'l'apke into a neutral corner landing right and left almost at will and thereafter the Illinois contender was always at a disadvantage. Step ping aside at critical iuucUires, Ket chel swung his right time and again flush upon his opponent's jaw, now and then alternating with left driven to the body. In the fifth round Ket chel drove' a hard right to stomach and Papke had not put up his hands before he encountered a hard right to the jaw. Before this in the fourth round a light tap on the nose had brought blood from Papke, that start ed the crowd yelling for the Micht Manager Smith has arranged with Selma for two polo games on Saturday and Sunday next and hot contests will sure be witnessed.

A moment later as they broke out of a clinch, Ketchel swung the left at three-quarters length, landing squarely on the point of the chin.
