6 HARRY CARR'S VIEW OF "BATTLE OF THE CENTURY" Clever Writer of Los Angeles Times Staff Gives Picture of Fight at Reno "Jeff" Lay In Pose of "Dying Gladiator" When Counted Out — Carr Prefers Pork and Beans Fights of Uncle Tom McCarey's Pavilion. ■ . Reno, July 4. — I have seen the "bat tle of the century." But the next time the century has a battle I would like to exchange my ticket for a seat at one of Uncle Tom McCarey's pork and beans fights. The "battle of the century" made | me think of nothing so much as the ' butchery of an old bull. When, at the end of the fifteenth round, old Jeff lay, half through the - ropes, smeared with blood, the light all gone out of his eyes, stricken and 1 helpless, I half expected him to give the "moo" of the dying bull. When the moving pictures are shown I think you will see a strange I thing — that Jeffries lay in the exact j attitude of the statue, "The Dying : Gladiator," as he was being counted out, with this addition: The group \ will have an...

Saturday, July 9, 1910. ALLIGATOR IN SALTON SEA Weather Bureau Attendants Startled By. Their Find at Creek Trestle. A real alligator was .caught Tuesday in the Salton Sea by the scientists connected with the Evaporation Sta tion of the United States Weather Bureau at the Salt Creek Trestle says the Brawley News. Although the first to make its appearance, the men at the station are eagerly looWng for more, as the well known habits of the reptile preclude its isolation. The fact that this was a young one points to the fact that there is probably a colony of them located in the marshes, and the straggler was attracted by the tid bits thrown from passing trains. The captors have tried to make a play fellow of their 'gator, but he refuses to becqme tractable and at tetmpts to seize the hands that stroke his back. Although alligators are plentiful In the Southern states, this Is the first Instance so far known of a genuine specimen being captured In the open, west of Louisiana. Speculatio...

Whether a county official is a republican ' or a democrat or a politi cal maverlc^ bearing no party brand is not of the slightest consequence.

WHERE COLLEGE EDUCATION FAILS. Old Horace Greeley was a good journalist of his day and generation, and he had no use for a college kid on the Tribune; he said college graduates were "horned cattle" in the shop. Per haps Horace was a bit prejudiced, but it is as true now as in his day that the most efficient journalists, with rare exceptions, are men that never went to college. A young man may graduate from college and yet be uneducated, untrained and inefficient in any profession, trade or occupation. Especially is this true of the literary part of college work, which is conspicuously neglected...
