habits of these fish, preying upon the
game species, the state law calls
upon fishermen to kill them when
ever caunht by seine or hook. The
garfish are r garded as scavengers

Johnson's two chief handlers, took
the bull by the horns yesterday and
stated that under no consideration
would they permit the champion to

Fourth of July. That is the present
size of the Johnson-Flyun ring and
it Is in place.
A week aco when the referee ln-

measured 1 7 'i feet and asked him if
its si.e suited him, Lil' Artha replied
that he wouid not enter any objec
tion. Flanagan and Hitrna were mum
on the matter until yesterday.
Shortly before noon they waited on
! i.r,.n.i,., ti.
f'urley and made
known their objections, stating that
the size of the- ring would have to be
increased or there wouid not be any

swollen, worse trouble may quickly
follow. This is often the cause of i

ache, etc. Uric poisoning Is also f re- j
