The wide Ai eime was iackcd from curb to

Three splendid services supplied the

Considerable damage was done to firing

Pretty Private Afcir Pulled Off in
a Barn in, the Suburbs.
Both Men Were Aninteurit, Bat Fur-
nlnhed Excellent Sport for a
Walter Arnold and T. M.Shenk, two East
Washington aspirants? for pugilistic honors,
fought to a finish lr an old barn on the
Biadeiisburg Road, on Monday night, for
550 a side. "t
The fight was one of the prettiest set tos
cut pulled off in tills locality, aud was
strictly n priate affair, only about a half
dozen of the friends of. the principals being
prcseut. For a longme, it is said, there
was "bad blood" between Arnold ami
Sheuk and about six. weeks ago they
agreed to settle tlielr"dlfferences. They
went Into hard training Immediately,
"Knappy" Keruan luhing charge of Ar
nold and a friend looked after Shenk, and
when the-y stepped into the ring DTjth were
In the pink of. condition.
The boys were eehly matched in every
way, both in age ahdaWetht. Shenk, who
Is only nineteen years'old. tipped the scales
at 15S pounds, and Arnold, who is one j car
older, weighed id, at 102 pounds.
The fight was dspe-rate and bloody
and lasted twcnty-twxi rounds. Both men
showed great endurance and gameness
and took the punishment like professionals.
For the first few. rounds both sparre
cautiously waiting for an opening. It
was not, howeteruDttl the fifth that an
opportunity was preeeuteil and Arnold took
advantage of It, and went ln with a rush.
He landed, but notnsheexpe-ctcd.and was
met with a terrlfler stop by Shenk Just as
time was called.
From this round on tlie fight was any
body's, Jicllher party bating the advan
tage. It was give aroltiikc- through every
round up to the twentieth. Both men were
weak, but fighting desperately, nnd It was
evident they were ln to stay, not for
money, but for brood.'and they were both
getting plenty of It.
At the ojwnlng of the twenty-first round
Arnold was willing but wrak, and it was
evident hc'Vould not last much longer,
bhenk, seeing this, played for wind, and
when the round ended he wasiu belter
condition than at the opening.
The husbanding of 'hi strength stood
Shenk well In the twenty second andlast
round. Arnold came up smiling, but it
was a smile that plainly .said, 'I'm here and
that's all.' He mnda last effort, be
rushed, but was caught on the cbtn by
an upper cut from Snenfc.and It was all
night with him after.
The fight was perfectly satisfactory to
all concerned, exceptant coarse, to Arnold,
who, however, had no tSxiuplatnts tn make,.
Although badly tnttrrea.-lioth jnetl were
out yesterday andithrrt Is strong talk of
auother meeting for a larger purse being
arranged in the near future.
