sum 60 per cent went to the gladia

$2,401 for his light, while O'Brien gets
$7,383. It was the largest crowd that

HOW THE MEMORABLE
DEED WAS DONE.
San Francisco. Dec. 21. "Philadel
phla Jack" O'Brien last night, at the
Mechanics' Pavilion, knocked out Bob
Kitzslmmons in thirteen rounds. Fiti
was able to stand out the round, but
collapsed after reaching his chair.
At the close of the round Fltz landed
a left on the stomach of O'Brien, who
replied with his right to stomach and
left to Jaw. This was too much for
Kitzslmmons. He knew that the end
had come, for, as he sat down he said
to Referee Graney, "Eddie, he hit
me In the stomach, and it is all over.
O'Brien gave an elegant exhibition
of sparring and footwork. His duck
ing and dodging and side stepping
were amazing. Fitz's swings gener
ally found only empty air, missing
sometimes by fully a foot. Before
leaving the ring. Fltzstmmons made
a little talk. In which he declared that
he had done his best and had fought
his last fight. The attendance was
Immense and the old favorite had the
sympathy of the crowd all the way

The tragic death which befell ner

of readers of The Evening Citizen. In
a nutshell, he and a companion fell
from a bridge on the Zuni Mountain
railway, on which they were work
iug with a gang of men for the Amerl
cau Lumber company. The men were
precipitated manv feet bciiw into a
canyon, both dying as a result of their
injuries'. Before the accident, Rog

value, thrust th".m into the fire where
they were burned up. A serious situ
ation then faced the poor widow, as
there was but little left in tho house
to eat. The Women's club of this city
was quick to act when they learned
the facts in tie case, and assisted by
the several butlness men, three boxes
and a barrel f goods were parked,
and tomorrow t'ney will be taken to
