a Beating In 10 Rounds at New
New York. March 6. "Cyctene
Johnny' Thompson of Illinois beat
Mickey Gannon, the Pennsylvania
lightweight, with ease in a 10, round
bout at the National A. C. last night.
In the first round Gannon was knock
ed dgwn for a count of six. A mom
ent before the last round ended
Thompson put .his man to the flor
with such a hard Kght hand swing
on .the Jaw that the bell saved Gan
non from what seemed a sure knock
' Gannon simply was outclassed. Ha
slibwed- he was merely a left hand
bitter, with only a fair knowledge of
the boxing game. It was a grueling
mill all the way, but it was marred
by much clinching.
In the last round they wished o
close quarters, both getting in body
blows. Gannon reached the neck with
a tight, but Thompson was on top of
him with swings on the jaw which
hurt. At close quarters Thompson put
it all over Gannon, but the latter was
game and took his medicine.- Towards
the end of the round Gannon received
a right swing squarely on the point
of the jaw which sent him to -tha
floor. He was in bad shape, but be
fore he could get up tiie bell rang an !
the .fight was over.

the signature of his fond mother to his
enlistment papers and presented them
to his future captain. The latter look
ed them over carefully, and then hand
ed them back, saying that the father's
signature would ,have to be secured.
The aspirant, for military honors sad
ly remarked that he was afraid that

an inmate of the asylum, and the cap
tain hurriedly took back the papers,
and after apologizing for bringing up
a painful subject, remarked that he
guessed the papers would be all right.
