Marvin Hart, the Kentucky heavy
weight "njitt pusher," now looms up as
a leading candidate for the champion

Now Marvin will probably meet that

Hart and Ituhlin have fought twice.
April Il, 11KM. they went six rounds in
Philadelphia, no decision lieing ren
dered. Hurt showed great ability and
endurance In that bout. A mouth later
In Baltimore they fought twelve rounds
to a draw.
In hb re.ent fight with Jack Root
Hart showed true championship cali

Johnson, the negro "scrapper."
Among the other men that Hart has
defeated are Sandy Ferguson, Kid

Hurt is trying to coax Jim Jeffries
to miet him. The ex-champion, how
ever, does not think the public would
pay to fc-e the match. The Keutuckiau
ways: "1 will sign articles to fight
Champion Jini Jeffries for the heavy
weight title as soon as lie says the
word. I am ready to book up with
him nt any time and think that I am
the only map In the world wlio wonM

beaten Johnson, a man Jeffries has
Ikh-u side stepping for months, and cau
put it on the ttoilertnaker too."
Hart has proved himself a game,
tough man and one who will In time
claim a fight with the champion. The
general opmion of the sports seems to
be that Hart la too small a man to

"She always goes right ahead and
does things without consulting any

"Humph! I wish I had her In my

"Yon never know what she is goirjg
to do next."
"Again I say I wish I had her."
Noticing the lookn of .surprise that
were cast at her, the last speaker went
on: "Iid you ever find yourself In a
position where yonr advice was asked
fifty times a day? That's where I was
after I married John and came to thta

his sister wanted her Jacket sleeves
remodeled she couldn't rip them out
and cut them by a pattern. Oh, no!
She was no good at those things. She
had to bring them to me. If anything
went wrong every one had to be help
ed to solve It. Even new acquaint
ances would drop in to state their
troubles. Just think of the delight of
having as a close associate a woman
who never consults you about any
thing she does! What a blessed re
lief!' A girl has to go downtown either to
select a hat or to find a ignition. She
can't bear to go alone, so she turns
to another girl who Is perhaps very
busy herself, and she says, "Oh, do
come with me!"
That's tbe spirit of it alL "Oh. do
come with me!" "Oh, do write this
disagreeable letter for me! or "Tell
