inikc-up of Sir. bulllvan, tho one man
who could knock down ncovvbornnd his

Indian could throw a tomahawk, or glvo a

of them, will bo published in The fctusoAV

an) thing that has ever been said or writ

blood will delight in studying these artis

ucss rests on this solid rock: "1 can lick
any man on earth."
W hen, lu the beginning, (he race to which
bulllvan belongs was demonstrating to

rule this planet, w hat was It that counted
In tho struggle? it was not tho flno
