( 'round battle between Jess Wlllard and
Frank Moran, which Is scheduled to be
held "somewhere" In this city on March
IT. Tex Rickard, who Is promoting tho
uffnlr, will offer Jeff the job.
Itlckard and Jeffries are great friends.
They have kept up a correspondence
ever slnco the fight between Jeffries and
Jack Johnson, which was promoted and
icferecd by itlckard.
In casf Jeffries accepts Tcx'a offer,
application will bo made to tho State
athletic coirmilsalon fbr a referee's
license for Jeffries. Whether tho com
mission will grant .this license Is prob
lemailrtil, but If precedent Is followed
there may be some difficulties placed In
the way of .Tcff'B appointment.
However. thH will rest entirely- with
the commission, which has discretion
ary powers in the matter.
I think that Jeffries as referee will
help tho match along," declared Rick

is staying. "I Intend to Invito Jeffries

THE beachcomber was shuffling
along the sands, like some fur
tively uncouth night animal. He
was a forlorn spectacle un
shaven, 111 clad. For a week now ho
hod dwelt In a tumble-down shack at
the far end of Surfton beach a- two
room hovel, deserted long ago by the
coast guards and lit only for outcasts.
There could bo no doubt that the
beachcomber was an outcast. He spent
his days hidden In the shack. Only aft
er dark did he venture forth In search
of food or firewood. Tho few people
who had seen hlmtm these night prowls
thought him a mere tramp, and nick
named him "Mike."
This evening Mike was scouring tho
shore for driftwood. Ho had gathered
an armful of It and was crossing the
beach toward the base of the cliff,
where lay a bit of wreckage that the
mobnlljiht had just revealed to him.
He had nearly reached the cliff base
when a blaok cloud momentarily blot
ted out the moon, making the beach
suddenly dark. Mike looked up Impa
tiently to learn the cause of the dark
ness. Even as he looked, the cloud passed
on. and the moonlight burst forth, as
vividly elear as before. But before he
could lower his eyes and continue his
search for the elusive bit of driftwood.
Mike's gaze was caught and gripped by
something that swayed and reeled ec
centrically on the verge of tho cliff,
far above him.
He looked more closolv. There, sil
houetted against the brightness of the
midnight skv, he could make out two
close-locked bodies, fighting for very life
on the cliff edge battling as wild beasts
battle so maddened by the blood lust
as to be heedless of their peril. A mis
step on that perilous vergo must send
one or both of the combatants crushing
over tne brink.
Mike stared upward, spellbound.
Then he shouted. Tho night wind car
ried away his cry of warning. Gal
vanized Into feverish activity, he cast
aside his carefully boarded armful of
wood ana ran to the base of the cliff.
Tho lower part of the cliff was
bowlder strewn and honeycombed with
caverns and holes. Above these was n
tortuous path, up along the sheer edge
of the precipice a oath that a light and
active man might possibly climb.
Forgetful of his own safety. Mike be
gan to swarm un this steep trail, to
ward the aumlt. No longer could he see
the fighters. But. as he neared the
crest he could hear their hoarse breath
ing, the stamping and scuffling of their
reet. tne naiistorm or pehbles that thev
dislodged and sent rattling down the
siue or me cJirr.
Max Lamar was yielding. Inch by Inch,
to tho fearful pressure of his foe. With
every ounce of his 240 pounds, and with
every atom of his mighty strength.
"Smiling Sam" Eagan was striving to
drag Lamar to the cliff brink and hurl
him over.
Max realized his enemy's Intent, and
fought like a wildcat to overcome the
terrible handicap of weight He
writhed and struggled In vain to stay
that Irresistible pressure. Nearer and
nearer to the verge his antagonist
tugged him. All wrestling tricks were
futile against tho lowbullt and com
pact mountain of muscular weight.
Other tactics were necessary and must
be put to use. right quickly If Lainar
were to escape with his life.
The crime specialist wrenchod one
arm free and struck. His lett fist bat
tered thuddlnglv against the sweat
ing flesh of Eagan's upturned face.
His blows were delivered with all tho
skill of a trained boxer. But his
arm was too cramped and the distance
too short for him to deliver them with
anything like full force.
Eagan shifted his hold, so as to pinion
tho flercely driven left arm. and twisted
his broad face to one side to evade the
shower of blows.
The maneuver enabled Max to tear
freo his right arm. Bracing himself, he
threw every atom of hla weight and
has waning strength into a short-arm
uppercut His fist caught Sam at the
point of the jaw.
Eagan's mighty arms relaxed their
hold under the Impaot of the blow. His
head jerked back. A quiver ran through
his mountainous bodv.
Before he could brace himself, Lamar
struck again. Eagan reeled backward,
dizzy, and all but helpless. With boxer's

But It was too late to recover his bal

like a wild .beast cofnered. With ono

Of distant buwlders.
Tho beachcomber crawled dazedly to
his foot and looked arourfd him. From
below ho hod seen two men battling
hero. Yet, when Mo had arrived at the
crest only ono man had been visible.
And that one man was gone.
Au Mlko still blinked uncertainly
about him, ho heard a, muffled cry that
seemed to como from the ground be
neath his feet. Ho jumped to ono side,
lh superstitious dread.
"Who's-who's there?" he mumbled.
The cry was repeated fainter, mom
feebly. And with It camo the sound of
nattering pobblcs. Mike's fear vanish
ed. Ha located tho voice now. Lying
at full length, he peered down over
the edge of tho precipice.
Six feet below him, and hanging over
a sheer three-hundred foot drop, clung
n man a mail who hnil broken his fall
by seizing an outcropping Jut of stono.
To the stono tho unfortunato Lamar
was clinging with both hands. His
body swung helpless below It. His grip
on the stone was already fatting. Once
or twice. It seemed gone. But with cat.
like agility he woutd ever renew his pre
carious noid.
"He can't hang on there more than a
few seconds longer," muttered tho
beachcomber, noting the Increasing
weakness of the suspended body.
Mme, Theumalan. wife of the only
Christian member of tho Turkish Parlia

Mrs. Wesley M, Stoner, president of

"Here, you I" ho howled. "Stick tight!
I'm going to help you, if I can."
At tho voice, Lamar tightened his slip
ping grasp and looked upward. Above
he saw the unshaven face of tho tramp,
glaring, wild-eyed down at him.
Tho beachcomber was stretching one
arm downward. But ho could not reach
Lamar by nearly a yard.
Can you hang on while I run for a
rope and someone to help me pull you
up?" he called.
Lamar did not answer. He had no
strength to squander on words. He
needed every fraction of his ebbing
power to maintain his slippery hold for
even a minute longer. Tho beachcom
