HART PUTS ROGERS QOOOOOOOOOOOOOO'OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OUT IN THE SECOND o
Hot Springs, Ark., March 10. Mar
vin Hart of Loiiisviiie Knocked on
Harry Rogers, the Indiana miner, in
the second round last night before the
largest crowd that ever filled the Whit
tington Athletic club. During the
short time that it took Hart to dispose
of his opponent, the miner was knock
ed to the mat seven times.
As a fighter the lad from Indiana
proved a joke. He lacked both sci
ence and strength, anil the sudden ter
mination of the fight, which was sched
tiled to go 20 rounds, was. a great (lis
appointment to the spectators. From
the first blow landed by Hart it was
plainly seen Rogers was no match fo-
the Kentuckian. He became weak al
ter the first round, so severely did
Hart punish him.
In the second round Hart landed
four terrific blows to the jaw, and
each sent the Indianaian to the mat
Rogers was wild with ins swings ami
left innumerable openings, which were
taken advantage of by Hart. Twice in
the last round Rogers swung so wiil
Iv that he slipped. Hart realized th.it
he had his man going, and a left swin
to the stomach, followed by a right to
the jaw, closed the career of the minor
as a heavyweight aspirant
