For some months past the deni
zens of Dodge City have been pre
paring for a regular Mexican bull
fight to be presented July 4th.
Some 3,000 or 4,000 people -were
assembled on the fair grounds to
witness this novel spectacle, but
the dispatches indicate it to have
been a very tame affair indeed.
The fight took place in an arena
100 feet in diameter enclosed by a
fence eight feet high, provided with
eight escapes and two ladders.
There w ere five bull fighters and
four animals. The first bull ush
ered into the ring made the only
fair fight, furnishing only half an
hour's amusement The second
was quiet and, showing no spirit,
was withdrawn. The third pranced
into the ring, throwing up clouds
of dust. After being angered by
several spear thrusts, he made
matters very lively, and after being
exhausted was lassoed and dragged,
from the ring. The fourth proved
a failure, and the crowd demanded
the first bull, -which was returned
to the ring. After a brisk fight
and much charging the picadore
gave him a fatal thrust with the
lance and he fell dead. One of the
matadores was severely injured
about the ribs in the final encoun
ter and he mar not recover.
