Mopped Corbett In a seoond tight.
Knocked out Itublln, and twloe lost to
Jeffries by a margin so narrow that

thought tho championship should
have gone to tho suitor. Ho tuuda a
lortuno In tho ring, waa known as tbo
"tightest" man that ever drow down

lor u bare living.
Tom had his first lesson In eco

"You coma right over here) with mo

A llttla later Hharkey was In New

In some ways, but he hnd ono unusunl

to him, but ho never trustod O'llourko

who loally needed help. And that
ran Into many thousands, although
