astonishing to mo to see her get

Adair Will Have an Airing in Police

In this day of mad rush for wealth
even the life of a veterinary surgeon
is marred by its worries. Two men of
this calling. Dr. Samuel R. Kennedy
and Dr. Arvid L. ri.ilei helm, staged a
one-round bout yesterday i:i Stengel

poris of the battle are that tilings were
breaking . ha-Jly for Se.iei halin when
'Referee' Tobe Wheeiock interfered
and prevented Kennedy from annihi
lating his fellow colleague.
Sederholm makes no attempt to
claim a victory by physical prowess,
but he will seek his triumph in the
P"?ajesty of the law. He had Kennedy
i-nested on a charge of assault and
battery, and the legal battle will he
waged 10 davs hence. Walter Peter
son signed Kennedy's bond.

Kach D. V. S. has his story of wh-it
brought on the fistic encounter. Seder
holm asserts t hat Kennedy is "sore"
because he lost some business that tell
to Sederholm. Kennedy says that
Sederholm has been calling him names
and one that ).-, very objectionable t"
a professional man. The particular
ipithet that Kennedy objects to ?s
Kennedy asserts that Sederholm
called him a "quack," and Kennedy
says that at the time he made up his
mind that the first time he met "Seder
liolni he would 'clean him." Accord
ing to report Kennedy was driving
past Stengel's place and Sederholm
was standing in the doorway. When
Kennedy saw Sederhilm it is, said that
he jumped from his rig and opened
hostilities. Stderholm stopped the

confidently on an advance which will
bring it higher than the fourth place
on the roll of the cities.
The events of the celebration include
a lecture on the north pole by Dr.
Uretlerick A. Cook, the flying of (Jlenn
II. Curtiss. the aviator; the exhibition
of the Henry Farman aeroplane and
