TRUE TO HIS NAME
"Knockout" Brown Puts Har
lem Tommy Murphy Out in
' the First Bound.
GIVES HIM SMASH ON JAW
Terminates Boot at New York ip
About a Minute Loser Was
New York, May 25. Valentine
"Knockout" Brown, Gotham's clever
young lightweight, sprang a surprise
last night in boxing circles when he
knocked out "Harlem Tommy" Mur
phy In the first round of a scheduled
ten-round engagement before the
Madison Square Athletic club. The
battle did not last long enough to
give the fans a chance to settle down
in the seats a crushing right cross
to the Jaw sending Murphy down for
the count and ending the bout.
The result came unexpectedly.
Murphy for several years a claimant
to recognition for the lightweight
championship entered the ring a de
cided favorite although there were
plenty of Brown's backers scattered
through the' crowd. "Harlem Tom
my" started off as though he meant
business. He feinted for a few sec
onds and then started after Brown
who cleverly gave ground awaiting
Murphy managed to tap his oppon
ent lightly on the body and point of
the Jaw, but apparently never both
ered Brown. After the bout had
gone a bit over a minute Brown sud
denly opened on the offensive. He
rushed into Murphy's defense and
broke it down completely with blow
after blow, which had .Tommy be
wildered. Murphy backed into the
ropes and sidestepped repeatedly and
his Bpeed almost saved him.
The finish came whea Murphy at
tempted to turn the tide by going
onto the offensive. On the shift
Brown saw a beautiful opening and,
following a hard drive to the stom
ach he dazed Murphy completely
with a smash to the Jaw, and "Har
lem Tommy" dropped to his knees
for the count. He attempted to rise,
but cou?3n't, and his seconds lifted
him back to his corner.
COVI.OX FI?nS MATCH.
Fort Wayne, Ind., May 26. The
match at Princess rink last night be
tween Johnny Coulon of Chicago, the
bantamweight champion, and Johnny
Daly of Boston, under the auspices of
the St. Joseph Athletic club, was one
of the best ever held Eere. It was
witnessed by a crowd that filled the
rink, many of the visiting Elks at
tending the state convention here be
The referee was Charles ("Rough
House") Burns of Chicago, and
when, after 10 grilling rounds, he
held up the hands of both the lads,
his decision was accepted as fair.
The friends of Daly, nowever, are
not slow ' to claim that their man
showed the better form and in an
other state under different laws
should have been given the decision.
It is true that Daly was game
throughout the spirited contest and
made Coulon respect his boxing abil
ity. Coulon's attempts at Infighting
were met and thwarted so far as ser
ious damages were concerned.

Lest You Forget Tag Day
Saturday, Slay 28, is the day when yon win be stop
ped at street corners and in stores with the request,
"please buy a tag." If the people in Bock Island re
alized how the "taggers" had been working all through
the year, helping many poor and suffering ones, they
would willingly pot their hands in their pockets and give
what they oouldl afford and sometimes more. ' Just re
member that event a nickle will go towards helping some
one who is less fortunate than you are. Also remember
that the "tagger"? is not having the time of her life so
liciting on street corners all day, and that if yon will
help now, sometime ;in the future yon may be helped.
Put yourself in the place of these women; give them the
"glad hand" with something in it.
New Way i to Keep a City Clean
Minneapolis Is blazing a new trail.
It has; found out that no city that

it has solved the gatrbaga problem

But this la only an important Intro
duction to the story of the garbage
system which is being adopted
by a large city as a unit. When the
garbage man comes around to col
lect his quota he finds a clean can, he
is not faced with wet and dripping
refuse and in cold weather he does
not take a pick and batter the can in
order to lift the frozen material. He
merely loads the prepared garbage In
to a large steel box, somewhat resem
bling a bath tub, and which has lOu
feet capacity. Ha heals this to a cen
tral transfer station, where the tanks
are lifted off the wagon truck by
means of an electric hoist and placed
upon flat cars which convey them to
the crematory or disposal plant. A
trata of several cars soon reaches the
crematory Just outside the city, where
the boxes are lifted from the cars by
an electric hoist and dumped directly
into the fire. In other wordB, from
tbe time the garbage is rolled in pa
per by the housewife until the ashes
are taken from- the fire of the dispos
al plant there is no necessity for the
refuse to be handled by hand. As
the paper used to wrap the packages
is as a rule,' waste material, this too
is disposed of and the sanitary condi
tion of the cans and reduction in bu'k
of the waste, because drained, mak
the necessity for collection less fre
quent a saving in money to the city.

Straight Falls by Means of Hold
and Leg Lock.
George Demetral, the "Greek de

for Cyclone Tommy Thompson last
evening at the Moline theatre in Mo
line, winning easily in two straight
falls. The first on was accom
plished in 14 minutes by the aid of

challenge issued by Demetral npon
the occasion of his handicap bout
with both Thompson and Sporrey.

of both In the required 4 5 minutes.
Thompson's showing against Demet

challenge for a straight bout with
the hammerlock and strangle holds
barred.' Last evening tbe interfer

peatedly to keep Demetral from us

Following his being declared the
winner, Demetral offered to meet
any five wrestlers in the three cities
and throw them all in the space of
one hour. Not discouraged by his
defeat, Thompson offered to meet
Demetral again at any time the lat
