Coincident with this news, it is un
derstood that Bantam Champion
Johnny Coulon has decided to re
enter the ring Thanksgiving Day,
with Chavez as opponent, and Denver
the site of the battle.
Coulon has been in the mountains
for some time recovering from an at
tack of stomach trouble, and believes
he is now in condition to do battle
and give a good account of himself.
If the Logan Square boy finds he is
in shape lie will accept the challenge
of Kid Williams of Baltimore, leading

progressed to the class presided over
by Willie Ritchie, and has fought one
or two good fights at the poundage.

lawn, one or two wiser folk saun
tered round the rose-bordered paths.
Two of these were seated in a quiet'
part of the garden enjoying the scent
of the flowers and the solitude. They
were engaged. Presently a mutual
friend sauntered down the path and
"You two seem to be enjoying
yourselves over here all alone," said
"We are," said the girl, and, being '
a girl, managed to look pleased to see
him. "Won't you join us?"
"Sorry, I can't," answered the
friend, "not being a clergyman. But
I'll go and find one, if you like!"
