litno the uititiiitiotli pavilion wns packud
with enthusiastic humanity, testing tho
tenting capacity of tho structure which
given at 7r00 persons by mathemat
ical measurement. Out3iilo tho club
houso boforo K o'clock a crowd beseiged
tho doors clamoring f or tickets and
pushing and almost climbing over each
other in thoir anxiety to get in, but to
no avail. Tho Olympic had sold no
tickets than their seating caimcity war
ranted and with tho Inst ticket thnt
passed out of tho box oflieo business
was suspended in that direction.
It wns a quarter to 8 o'clock whon Mr.
Ed Curtis entered tho arena and by ro
qnest of President Charloy Noel spoko a
few verses. Ho told of tho calculation
made for seating overy tickotholder and
announced tho programme. IIo regret
ted, ho said, that no men could bo fonnd
for lovo or itionoy to stand up ami bo
knocked out respectively by Mitchell
and Slavin but that two local men had
agreed to boic them. Thoy wero Arthur
Uphnm and Felix Vaquelin, tho creolo
heavyweigUt. Mitchell aud Slavin
would follow in an exhibition sparring
Clmrley Mitchell rntereil
tho ring, attended by Tom Allen, Pat
Allen and Frank Slavin. Mitchell looked
round and fat, decidedly better than I
during his last appenranco here, when
mado by seconding Kilraiu.
Upham, who was introduced as tho '
champion heavyweight of Texas, looked
beefy and in no condition to spar. I
Mitchell toyed with him and buffeted
him about tho ring three rounds and
then a much better three-round cxhibi-1
tion wns given by Vaquelin and Slavin.
Vaquelin showed marked improvement,
and got in some good licks that elicited
hearty applause.
Sluvlii and Mitchell
followed in an interesting three-round
set-to, which was entertaining as a
brother act if nothing else.
It was 0:03 o'clock when Mahor en
tered the ring clad in green tights. Ho
was attended by Billy Madden, Gns
Tuthill and Jnck Fallon. The Irish boy
was warmly greeted, hut tho applause
was tremendous when threo minutes
later Bob Fitzsimmmons camo into viow
attended by Joo Choyinski, Jimmio Car
roll aud Professor Robertson. Fitz
turned about as ho passed Maher'a
corner and shook hands with tho Irish
man and his seconds in a comicnl yet
hearty manner that evoked laughter and
applnuso from tho audience.
When stripped Fitz looked a perfect
bnnch of bones and muscle, bigger and
heavier than whon he settled Jack
Dempscy in such short order, but though
the scales saw so, the extra llesli was so
well distributed that it was not promi
nently perceptible.
Matter stripped full and round. His
chest was broad full and deep, standing
out prominently. Ho was heavily mus
cled in tho hack, tapering fjracefully
down to full aud rounded hips. The
Asked for tlio VTqlgiitii
and Referee Professor John Duffy, after
consulting with tho men exclaimed,
"Fitzsimmons 163, Matter 178."
Tho refereo announced Mr. P. J.
Donahuo, tho Now York sporting writer,
as timekeeper for Mnlier, Mr. Georgo R.
Clark for Fitzsimmons and Mr. R. M.
Frank for tho club.
As tho men faced each other for a
fight and tho contrast in their appear-'
anco became apparent tho friends of i
Fitz felt strengthened in their judgment
of him, while those who had wagered
wealth "6ightnnseen" on tho Irish cham
pion concluded that thoy had mado a
good investment. His big frame and
bturdy look inspired confidence, which
ono brief hour dispelled and
showed tho burly Irishman to bo

did at least havo the graco to mako bo
lievo he was put out.
As tho men feinted for tho initial open
ing Maher lacked graco, bnt looked
fonnidablo in his massiveness. Ho
planted himself firmly and hold his
guard low and stiff.
Fitz was to tho contrary on springs.
Ho kept his arms moving in unison with
his feet, eyes bright and sparkling and j
lips hrmly sot, breathing wholly through
tho nostrils. Ho looked serious hut firm
while Manor's face was stolid and ex
pressionless. Mahor opened hostilities with a short
half-arm lead with his left, which Fitz
avoided by jumping away. Fitz bobbed
around, waiting his chance, dodging
and feinting until an opportunity for an
opening was found, when away shot lite
loft, catching Maher with tlio heel of his
glovo full in tho mouth. It was as much
a shove as a blow, and sent

Fitz's impetus carried him forward
upon Mahor, who sat down nnd Fitz
walked over him. Maher quickly re-
ained his foot anil blood was seen trick
ing from his mouth. Tho sight of il
ecmed to mako turn vicious and ho
tishctl at Fitz landing a heavy right-
anuer directly under tho heart that
ient the Australian against tho ropes near
labor's corner. Tho Irishman was
ready to follow up his advantage Bwif tly
and tho vast audienco held its breath in
anticipation of seeing Fitz knocked out
in tho first round, but Mahor hesitated
a second and tho sound of tho gong de
prived him of tho golden opportunity of
delivering the decisive blow. Fitz was
saved and a sigh of relief was givon by
his backers, bnt it wns well nigh tho
unanimous opinion that ho would not bo
iu it much longer.
At tho opening of tlio second ronna

but othorwiso nil right, his oyes snapping
and mouth shut. Mnhor's mouth was
bleeding and his respiration heavy.
Fitz quickly rccvered and from thni
time on ho simply kept jabbing with his
left hand on Mnhor's faco, increasing1
tho flow of blood with overy punch and
skillfully ducking and dodging to avoid
tho attempted returns of tho Irishman. '
Round after round saw no c.haugo in
tho tactics on either side. Fitz would
coolly step up, jab Maher on his
HlreilliiR Is'ono or Mouth,
duck or jump away from a dropping
swing mid como back at his man at
will on tho soro and bleeding spots. Fitz
seldom used his right hand except as a
guard to stop tho .blows aimed at his
wind. Two or threo times Mahor did
manago to catch Fitz with an upper cut,
but tlio blows seemed to lack steam.
In tho seventh round Fitz landed n
neat pivot blow on Maher's neck which
elicited cries of foul, but no heed was
paid to them as thoro was no agreement
to bar such a stroke.
In round nino Maher changed his so
rious look and smiled as Fitz jabbed
him in tho noso and mouth, producing
n squashing sound audiblo all through
tho pavilion aud which brought a fresh
flow of blood over Maher's breast.
In tho tenth round Mahor started in
to force the fighting and made tlio pace

tho tenth round rammed it homo to such
effect that ho took no moro chances.
Ho jabbed through tho eleventh and
twelfth rounds almost without a return,
nnd near tho end of tho twelfth round
ho said to Fitz
"I'll Quit After This."
.Taking him at his word Fitz lot up
until the gong sounded and as ho walked
to his corner ho said, "Ho's quit, Jim

Carroll rushed across tbo ring to Ma

ho was being sponged off by his attend

been somo poor outcast whom Jim
Blaino had seduced, Mrs. Blaino could
nover havo spoken in a moro brutal
manner. I spoko up for Mario: 'Thoy

Everyone should know that the entire
human structme is constantly being torn
down and rebuilt, the tame as in the
vegetable world the trees shed their leave
and a;:ain put fortli new shoots. Now,
when the blood becomes too weak to carry
to the kidneys und liver this dead tissue
that should be removed, the whole system
becomes enervated and a distressed feeling
of weakness and unnatural fatigue follows.
One feels half dead, so to speak, and liter
ally ii half dead, the old tissue clinging tn
particles throughout the system, prevent
ing the forming of new tissue and tha
awakening of new life. At such times a
medicine that will enliven the blood, re
more its sluggishness, till it with red cor
puscles, and strengthen it, is necessary.
There is only one mich medicine and that
ia Dr. John Bull's Sursaparilla. Its action
on the blood ii like the ell'ect of cream on
coffee, t( malxsitgood. Ho you want to feel
tho exuberance of perfect health? Doyoa
want to feel strong and full of life in every
part? Do you want to increase your self
control and ho a perfect man or perfect
woman, fiee from the unnatural tenden
cies of wasting and debilitating diseases?
Then use Dr. Thill's Snrsapurilla. It will
make you feel new and full of stiength.
