At  intervals   Jcnkjns  attempted   to   get  the upper berth, but Gotch was  too  slippery,   and   finally   got  Jenkins almost'    constantly on  the defensive.  Gotch  being  thc younger man,   was  the more strenuous and-hc frequently  put  Jenkins  in1 tough  positions,  but whether he tried arm locks, further arm holds, half and inuarter nelsons,  Jenkins  thrsw  them off,     and i  finally, gaining a neck hold with     ~a '  half crotch,      Jenkins   threw  Gotch  easily, the */owaian  seemingly  weakening  under the strain.

That  the men of Bonnie Scotland are  <*-0-  uig to drink whan they feel inclined  in spite of tlie    efforts of tlie dispensers of justice,     is shown hy the following copied  from a London paper.  "An     expeirment in total prohibition made     by tlie     magistrates  of'  Glasgow has had very unexpected and  unpleasant results.

Within thc    bounds    of the citv no  liquor was procurable and there "was  a stampede of thousands by rail and  tramways    to        neighboring   places  where drink was on     sale.   Paisley,  which is seven     miles from Glasgow  was tm-onged.   A number 0f the p���������|-I  !-c houses had sold out by the middle  o   the day, and others were so crowd  *'d that tlie   proprietors had to close  ater a hopeless attempt to regulate  the rush.   A number of extra constables    were   called out  keeping order.  On Tuesday there was a record  number of cases at Paisley Policc  c������"it. Similar experiences were  witnessed at Cambuslang, also in the  neighborhood, of Glasgow.

Sullivan-and Charles-  .Mitchell do meet in the ring they  should each be provided with axe han-  < les, for the fight cannot last long  in any case for lack of staying powers on the part of either. Wit-bout  something in the way of weapons  there might l.e another draw, and  both of the gentlemen in. "q^es-  titn as to which man was mistaken  in his estimate,of the other never be  settled. It is not at .all likely they  tl.ey will meet, as both- men are  tlought to be spoofing.  DRYSDALE-STEVENSCN  Go.

THREE  WHO  WENT   AND  ONE WHO COULD NOT  An  interesting  ami   a truly   fisherman's conversation was heard at the  railway   station   before   the   nine   o'clock  train     came in this  morning.  Four     gentlemen participated in  it,  one oi whom is noted for always being able, to catch Iish, two for,being  able  to do so  occasionally,  and   ens  .who,  if he-is not able to catch any  from  the water, for obtaining a basket   from   rii   Indian  rather   than   return   home   without  any.    Three'  ~of  them     -were    going  to  make  a trip  down the .line on a lishing expedition,  and  the other was encouraging them  by"offering  to bet firvc to^ one     -that  they all came back fishlcss.    Thc argument ran high,  each of   the three  who were going expressing 1 confidence  in his own particular aUiity to catch  monsters  which  no other  man could.  'Although   the   three  who  were  going  'ware  apparently   most   anxious       to  quarrel   amongst   themselves,        they  seemed to agree upon .one, point, aiid  lhat was  iu saying unkind  things  to  the fellow  who had  to stay at home  and  sort letters���������some of  them  even  going so  fir as to  profess   to know  the price he  paid 10V the last basl-et-  ful  hc brought  into town. Thc convcr  sation was stopped by the arrival of  the   train. ' Where  Ihe anglers     weie  going they ,alone knew, and flatly refused to teH  interested cnqfiircrs.  At  all -events,' before leaving  they  were  kind      enough   to  inform   the  crcAvd  that they  would leave a few  (ish ^behind,   which   promise    Avas   received  with a scornful  laugh   by  the  gentleman who could not go, and w.ho immediately  after uttering'it dived into   the car  for   the mail,  forgetting  in his scorn   that his assistant    bad  taken  it  out a  few  minutes  before,  and   were,  now  busily sorting it     at  the  postodice.
