I were hanging around Spring
field, Mo., trying to get a start.
We were at the lowest ebb. In

gone out and left us stranded. I
had horned into a fight club and

prietor intimated that It was
about time for us to brush along.
I farmed Luther out to one board

appetite made him a poor risk
and he ate himself out or one
place after another.
"We got aloag mainly on the
touches I was able to make from
chance acquaintances. It wasn't
safe to say 'Good morning' to me
in those days. Luther never
made a whimper. When he came
around to see me I would let him

and be was always satisfied.
"At last we were dead broke.
Bat Nelson had come to Spring
field to fight before my club, and
we hoped he would .give us a new

tight was a financial failure and
the club had a fearful time col

begged him to give me some of

struggle he finally wrenched lilni-
self away from $50 and gave me
