AVILLARD BEAN, CHAMPION OF UTAH.
From a photo by tho E(lto Portrnlt Co., Fioyo.)
Willard W. Bean was born in 1-rovo in May, 1671, and
is consequently about 27 years of age.' He was educated in
the public schools at Richfield and in the B. Y. academy in
Provo. Mr. Bean's lifo has been varied and his temporary
occupations many, He has herded sheep, has worked on
stock ranges and has been a general farmer boy; has worked
in a saw mill and has taught school for one season at Anna
bella, Sevier county; he has appeared on the stage for several
seasons with well known companies, and is an elder in the
Mormon church and well known as a preacher in the Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He first achieved a
reputation in athletics in the B. Y. academy, where he was
captain of the baseball club and president of the athletic club.
He for some time served as instructor in physical culture in
the Third Ward Provo League and Gymnasium, which he
assisted in organizing.
Willard Bean is a natural athlete, and in contradistinc
tion to most people in his line is noted for his morality and
proper living. He does not and never has used tobacco, al
coholic stimulants nor even tea or coffee, and has so far as we
know never been heard to swear. He can justly be regarded
as the ideal of the aspiring young athlete, and it is his earn
est desire to elevate the profession of the manly art and leave
a record which can be followed by the generation of pugilists
who may come after him. Mr, Bean expects to shortly leave
for the coast to take a special course in physical culture. He
unquestionably holds the championship of Utah, having de
feated all who have stood before him and is prepared to de
fend the title from nil aspirants in this State, as we'll as meet
all outsiders in his class. Mr. Bean is a middle-weight
weighing when in condition, as he generally is, about 155

Some Pugilistic Nonsense.
The following piece of "rot1' appears
on tho local page of tho Salt Lake Her
"bho4loati, an nlleged pugilist, Is
after Jim Williams for a match. -Jim
la n member of tho police forco and docs
not want to tight. There was a tlmu,
bcfoto Jim got his last place, when ho
would have met Bean and fought hi in
to a tlnish; when ho suggested to Beuu
ho would mako that llolsh iu four
rounds, but Been did not want 10 scrap.
Now he sees Jim has a job and one
which he will not likely quit Just for
tho shko of ongaglug In a slugging
match ho Is challenging Jim loudly
and frequently. Jim declares hu does
not waul to light,,. but lf'lkuti will
mod him hi tho barn some tluio. after
ho gets off shift, ho will undortnko to
satisfy his would-bo antagonist that ho
Is not a fighter, without any fuss or
All of tho nbovo was undoubedly !
