Up*to*Date Sporting flews. Just Some Smoke From the Great Sport Pipe ' Bob Fltzslmmons was not slow In bestowing credit where it was due when he got back to Chicago.

J., Dec. 22.-Added to What Hhe police call her murderous cruelty, Mrs. Catharine Ray, charged with the murder of her 4-year-old niece, Marie Conning, is one of the most wonderful specimens of physical development that ever came under the notice of the police surgeons. Were she out of her present pre ilicameut, which the police claim will cad to her conviction, she might earn n large salary by posing as a specimen of "what physical culture has done for me." Dressed in the calico wrapper of the prison, she looks slight, girlish and innocent.
