S In the Third
I' By MORRIS SCHULTZ
Copyright, 1923, WcHtura Newspaper Union.
"lu thc third round; don't forglt,
bid," Dorney had whispered. M .lo lo
fer all you're worth, nnd he'll go easy
with you. Then In tho third you git
ItN?n the Jaw and goes down-see?"
Abe nodded. The prlnclpnls faced
each other lu tho ring. Lof sky, the
champion, grinned nt Abo and tapped
him lightly on the chook. They spurred
and broke away.
Abo <wus dimly conscious of the vast
concourse of spectators. It was the
great event toward which bo had boon
working for five years past-his ambi
tion, tim welterweight championship.
It had been dllllcult to Und a big man
willing to meet him. Ho hud fought
his way up from tho bottom, and he
lind bad tough luck.
And now, at tho last, the thing that
he had looked forward to so lpng hud
become his Infamy, Abe had always
"""fought straight. Ho waa tho logical
man to meet Lol'sky, But Lofsky had
refused to meet him. And Abe's young
wife and the baby were pining Ul an
East Side tenement.
Then temptation had come In tho
form of Barney. Lofsky would moot
him for the purse of nine thousand
dollars, If he would take two thousand
and a knockout.
Abe had refused scornfully. He
knew that he wus a fair match against
Lofsky. But tilings at home were
going worse, und Minnie was threat
ened with tuberculosis. In the end
"It ain't as If lt was your finish,
kid," Burney bad snld to him. "No
body expects you to beat Lofsky, and
no ono will know. You'll git your
chance again somo day."
That was the understanding under
which they met.
Abe rushed in, pummelling Lofsky
fiercely about the body. Lofsky par
ried and guarded, returning an occa
sional blow which lacked all of Lof
.ky's steam. At ?rst Abe thought
Lol'sky was mindful of th? compact (
but theil he realized that the big man
had not trained for tho light, lie was
beefy, puffy, with too much stomach
over lils belt.
And then Abe saw that his chance
had come. Lofsky had not trained,
and he was trained to tho ounce. Vic
tory was within his renell, with seven
thousand Instead Of two US bis share
of tho proceeds.
Ho could redeem himself and fight
fair, as he had always done, In confi
dence of. victory, and so" avoid tho
worst offense known to the prize ring.
On the other hand, if he tricked
Lol'sky and his manager, would he not
be guilty of an offense equally bnd?
The di lemma was a hideous ono, and
there seemed no way to escapo dis
And suddenly ho'saw red. Ho would
beat Lofsky at any rute, If he could.
Ho sprung bi and dealt him a blow
upon the Jaw that staggered bim.
After that he fought furiously, stand?
lng up under a rain of punches. He
benni Lofsky grunt, ho saw the look
of surprise come Into his face.
Tho 'round endod amid tumultuous
applause Abe hardly heard tho whis
pered advice of his seconds. When
tho next round began he rushed nt
Lofsky and began driving bim nil
around tho ring. A fearful stomach
blow momentarily crippled him; then
bo had sent out his left, and Lofsky
had reeled and fnlloji.
The spoctators were growing frantic.
Was this another David) There was
an ugly look on Lofsky's face ns he
rose and met Abe's showering blows.
Thero was a clinch. Then Lofsky got
homo on Abo's stomach and cheek, two
staggering punches that evened things.
Abo grow cool. Ho had bee? rushing
it too hard. He guardod for tho re
mainder of the second found.

Tho third found-th? men faced one
another. Lofsky waa sneering. There
was a cut over his eye, and his nose
was bleeding. There was a look of
uncertainty In his eyes. Abe resolved
to put forth all lils might In this round,
the one In which he wus hooked to go
down. - He rushed. He beat down
Lofsky's guard. And then
Ho opened his eyes. His second was
stooping over him, sponging his face.
"What's the matter?" ho mumbled.
"Did he get me?"
"Got you In tho middle of tho round,
kid. Gee, an ox couldn't have stood
up again *? a punch like that of Lof
sky's bay, you sure put \p it better
fight than was expected I"
As he staggered to bis corner Lofsky
came up and shook bands. "Geo, kid,
you certainly had me guessing," he
? remarked. "I thought for sure you'd
double-crossed mc, till you let down
your guard, of I wouldn't have struck
Abe smiled. There w'ns a great
pence In his heart. Ile bad boen
beaton fairly-and fate had ?'ordained
that bo was to keep lils pact. He
would light fair In future. And Lofsky
would have td meet him again. He
must be ready next time for that
punch of Lofsky's.

Not long ago, writes a contributor,
while my nephew was consulting the
librarian nt tho Fresno city library, a
8mnll boy entered with a book that his
mother wished exchanged. Hut, since
she had neglected to send a list ot
booka to choose from, the librarian
was somewhat at a loss to know what
book to send. Finally she asked :
"Has your mother rend Freckles?"
"No, ma'am," replied tho boy;
"they're brown."-Youth's Companion.

gain as evidenced by.spirited bidding
which rapidly ran tho offers fr?m a

which was accopted by Chairman

When tho bids reached tho sum of
$625,000 Mr, Lasker called the board
which sat In at the sale, Into execu
tive session to determine whether the
salo should be continued on the unit
basis 'or iii lots . The former course
was adopted, and tho bidding from
then was largoiy between Mr. Perry
and tho Dravo Construction Co. of
Pittsburg. Tho latter finally stopped
at $749,000. Mr. Perry's represen
tative then offered $750,000.
Of the licet 217 vessels are wooden
and nine aro of wood ?and steel. Two
hundred and eleven aro now at Clare
mont, Va., 13 at Orange, Texas, and
two at Beaumont, Texas.
Ono of tho conditions of the salo
was that they were not to be used
for transportation purposes as steam
ships, and that they would bo dis

Chairman Lasker said after tho
salo that ho thought the successful
bidder expected to dispose of the
ships as scrap.
