It would lie hard to do that in the brief limits of a newspaper article, yet I hopo to bo able to tell enough here to encourage those who read it to try the benefits of a littlo training. It in pleasant to take and it benefits a man—or woman, either- more than a dozen doctors. If I were to give up boxing forever I should still take a course of thorough conditioning 1 once in a year or so, just for the pleas- fle»h. I had no supertiaous HeMi to net 3d of.

To bcjfin with, the methods of training as well as of boxinpr have changed vastly since tlie ancient Mr. Fiffff be- tfau to teach tho manly art of self defense. The old London prize rinff rules, under whieh men fought barehanded on the turf, have practically fallen into disiKO. Tluiy should never be revived, for they encouraged brutality. Under those rules a pame man was virtually knocked out half a dozen times before lie was so beaten that ho could not come to time at thi; end of one minute's rest. Under tho Quecnsbury rules, which now povcrn championship battles, the man who is knocked down must be up and iiffhtinp within ten seconds or ho loses tho contest. This is merciful to the conquered, and it does noi prevent the best man from winning. A (Treat many followers of the old system complain that under modern rules the inferior fighter may win with a "chance blow." It seems to me that \Vilh a cheerful companion at ray side 1 usually covi'ix-d eight or ten miles every morning- in rapid walking 1 , varied now anil then with a run—pood for the wind. After boxing and wrestling I enjoyed the luxury of a rnb- rtown until thoroughly dry; then n bath in a tub of sea water or perhaps a swim for five or ten minutes. Upon being rubbnil dry again I was stretched on o high couch and thoroughly rubbed by my trainers with a iniment of alcohol and witch hazel. This is one of tlu> pleasantest things about training. To be well massaged after a Turkish batli is well enough, 3iit there is not half the comfort in it that an athlete enjoys in a thorough rubbing 1 after a brisk morning's work. Billy Delaney managed the. job, and Donaldson, McVey, Creedon and Tracy did the rubbing. No brushes or mit- ;ens were used. The appetite that comes to one after guch a course of work, bathing and massaging is something enormous. No one will believe how much he can eat ( under the circumstances until lie has | actually enjoyed the experience. The ' chief meal of the day was eaten about noon. Our dinner table, was a jolly neethir" plane. Hreakfust did not always bring us all together, so my wife, her father, Mr. and Mrs. Urady and all the rest of our party met for the first time in tho day at dinner. ! There was always a couple of hours of whist, lounging, chatting and letter . writing after (iiuner. | Then, instead of walking, there i came an hour or more of handball followed by boxing, wrestling and bag | punching.

Each knows what tho other is trying to do to him, and it is his business to take care of himself. It Is folly to talk about "chance blows." All my training for tho roccnt con test at Jacksonville was done as carefully a* possible. I expected to po through twenty rounds with Mitchel and I tried to put myself in good enough condition to fight all day if necessary. The event showed that all this anxiety was perhaps not necos sary but it is an imperative rule for a man defending tho championship of his country always to enter the ring In perfect condition. Tho great thing to bo <lor,o was to brinirmy power of endurance to its best condition. For this it was necessary to tako long walks and runs, to box, to punch the striking bag, to wrestle and to play » great deal of HE GOT A SHAVE.

Chauncfty, retired, of lii-ook- lyn, Mad his beard shaved off recently in New York, anil many men ha.ve lost beards in tlin same way before. Capt. Chauncey. however, will never do it again. As the barber was using his shears he sn.fd : "llaf you a fembly'?" "Yes." said he captain, "a wife and two children." "Since veil vas your viskers shaftd alretty?" "Not for twenty years." "So," niunuiired the barber. "Veil, all I god to say iss dot your fembly Ton't know yon yet. Dot's all." •Capt. Channcey's beard had parted artistically anil was by no means ordinary. After paying the barber for his work and his compliments, Capt. Chauncey stopped in to see a friend on business. '•(lood-moruing, lilank," he said; "have you sent that check to—" "What check, sir? Wh-a-a-t! Chauncey!" That was discouraging, but Mr. lilank made it all right by saying: "Chauncey. old man, pardon my surprise, but 1 have never seen you without a beard. Really it makes you look ten years younger. It does, forafacn." Capt. Chauncey left New York to face his wife and children with a lack of confidence. He fingered his latch key nervously, and wondered if the hall lights were burning low. Before he had shed his overcoat Mrs. Chauncey was there to greet him with a kiss. She turned up her face with the usual greeting. Her eyes met the captain's and then dropped to his smoothly- shaven chin. "Oh, Chauncey, how could you do it? How could you? Oh!" said Mrs. Chaun- cev, drawing back. "It was a barber, my dear," said tho captain, remembering 1 now what tho barber had said about his beard and his "fembly." "But, Chaucey, how dreadful. I will have to gel used to you by degrees. Don't stand in that strong light, roy dear, Oh. it's too dreadful, fir WILE CiRE - - bj B«a MIK, Ma. th St.. Sol.

Not only , docs it exercise every muscle from his scalp to his heels, but it gives him o-ood judgment of distance, cultivates quickness of the eye and teaches him how to dart either hand exactly where lie wants it at precisely the right moment. And there's exercise enough in it to tire a Rocky mountain ram. I slept nine hours every nifflit- ! No two men fight alike. Indeed, i one teacher should instruct a class of twenty men, and they should sec no style of boxing but his they would ail us'o different tactics at tho end of a year. There are many styles of boxing and most of them are excellent. It has always seemed to me that a boxer should study his own peculiar abilities and endeavor to make the best use of them. When I began at the game I found myself taller, longer in the arms and rather quicker on my feet than most men. Next to hitting straight and hard I found quickness on the feet to be most useful. There ia no way to cultivate this so well as by boxing. Therefore I always box while in training. It is true that many authorities contend that a fighter risks hurting his hands by doing this. Of course ho does. Hut doesn't ho risk spraining a groin or a knee or an ankle when he runs, or walks, or plays handball? It is quite as important for a lighter to avoid punishment as it is for him to punish the other fellow. Therefore let him cultivate the ability to get in and out of hitting distance with all the rapidity possible. Now and then we hear of follows who arc "gluttons for punishment." They ought not to be. In the game of pugilism one must tako as well as give blows, but he is the best man who takes least and gives most. Ho who can strike quickest ought to win, provided he can protect himself from counter or return blows. Very early in my career I found that I could get my punch in most rapidly by starting it from a "half-arm position"— that is, with tho elbows not drawn back past the ribs. Suppose two men are boxing. John Doe hits in the old style, drawing back his fist md launching it out with all his body weight behind it, Richard Roe, let us say, starts his blow without drawing back his fist. Whose blow should •jet there first? Certainly the one that h»R the least distance to Sf 0 It is the blow that gets there first that does the business. I soon found that while this blow was very successful in reaching its mark there was not steam enough in it to suit. Undoubtedly there was some of the wcitrl't of the body behind it, for in boxing I stand with my feet closer together than most men and throw tho body forward even in delivering tho SIMPLE BAG HOLDER.

Chauncey enjoyed his dinner and his courage came back. Mrs. Chauncey talked about the missionary box she was ma.king up and occasionally stole a glance at her husband. Capt. Chauncey went to a business meeting at the church, nnrt when the writer called at the Chauncey house later that evening he found all the lights burning low. Capt. Chauncey was on a couch in the darkest corner of the room and Mrs. Chauncey still thought it was dreadful. "I shall get accustomed to it," she said, "and perhaps I shall upprove.^The girls haven't seen the captain yet" "Why, my dear," said Capt. Chauncey, "I feel as I did when I was at West Point. My beard was a nuisance. Very few people wear beards now, and I'm glad it's gone." There was more apology than glee in this remark. "Well, Chauncey," said his wife, "I might have expected something- like this. It is the logical sequence of a man with two children who begins to smoke cigarettes. They weaken the intellect, and, 'anyway, they don't smell so nice as cigars. Chauncey, I'll forgive you on the condition that you will stop smoking cigarettes." "I will, my dear. I'll never omoke another one," said the captain, cag-er- ly, as he settled into the shadow and stroked bis smooth chin proudly, and suggested that if his feelings were any indication, the Gerry society would probably interfere with his smoking the paper-covered boy-dsstroyera, anyway.— N.

KNEW ALL ABOUT IT, And Didn't Care to Take Hit Own Fre • crlptlon In Conavquence. In the cabin of a Windsor ferry-boat the other afternoon was a well-dressed rasa who carried his hand to his jaw now and then and uttered a stifled groan. After a bit a fellow-passenger had his curiosity aroused and brusquely queried: "Toothache?" "Yes." "Is she holler?" "I expect so." "Gives a sort of wiggle and then jumps on you now and then, don't she?" "Yes. Great snakes! How 1 snf- •fer?" "I've been there and know all about it If she's holler and has the jumps it ain't no use foolin' around. What you want to do is to go toadentist." "Urn! Jerusha, but how it aches!" "Go right to the dentist and have it yanked out. Man with a toothache always feels a little scared aoout having it yanked, but ; that's all imagination, you know." "I'd rather be shot," groaned the sufferer. "Oh, pshaw! Go to some dentist who gives laughing gas. He'll give you (fas and take that tooth out without your knowing it. 1 pledge you my word it won't hurt any more than paring off a fingernail." "Cm! What a liar!
