THE  RING���������  San     Francis(o,      CaL, Sept.  1.���������  With a full right.swing, flush to   the  jaw,  Tommy Burns,, of Canada,  last  night knocked  out Da\'e Harry,     of  San     Francisco,     in thc' twentieth  round.       The     lirst 14 rounds were  tame and   the crowd  continually called -upon the men  to light.    In   the  fifteenth   Burns caught 'Barry  with a  right      ,o  the jaw  which sent him  down  for  thc ��������� count.  He arose groggy,  but managed  to last out      the  round.       In   the  last   round' Burns  landed  several  hard  hits,  finally putting Barry out.  -The men were weigh  ed' in at 158 pounds.  BASEBALL���������  They  tell a good and true rtory of  John,J.  MeCloskey and Bill  Joyce,  the player.   MeCloskey  was managing     owner   of  the  Houston, Tex.,  club in 1888. Joyce was playing third  base anel captaining the team. In ad.  dition     to managing the team  MeCloskey  playeiL right field.  One   day,  he  made  several  errors.    The  team  which     had     won  twelve - straight  games looked  like a loser.  '.'Hold on," said, Joyce���������the employee of MeCloskey���������to the pitcher.  Then he turned and waived his hand  to MeCloskey and said:.  "Mac,  you  are rotten.  Get out ol  'the  game."   Then  to  Pat  Flaherty,'  !the   substitute     catcher. "Flaherty,  go out and play right field."   ,  I    '.',Whafs  that?"   cried   Otyner-Man-  ager MeCloskey  to  his hired      man  Joyce.
