• ! CHAPTER I. . :.'.
'-.-' One of the beet known and
mo« popular figures In Cleveland,
0., :' is natty . Johnny Kllbane,
champion featherweight boxer.
'< Many men and women who see
the little curly-headed wizard of
the padded gloves at the J wheel
of one of his big touring cars can
recall a comical sight of a few
years ago, when Johnny Kllbane
was a A. D. T. boy.
.■. Then a spindle-legged tad of
12, Johnny used to plod along on
a rickety old bicycle, pushing the
pedals only when they reached
, their highest .point, for the rea
son that he could reach ', them at
no other time. ■■; -
Johnny's mother died when he
was a little fellow, and his father
lost his sfght while employed In
a foundry. The boy lived with his
grandmother, over "under the
hill," a section of Cleveland's
west 'side, inhabited chiefly by
folk who came to the new world
from the land of . the ■ shamrock
and shadow. ,■■'",' -■ ■ ■
.;.-, When Kllbane hftJ to get oat
and hustle to help drive back the
wolf, his first employment was as
messenger. His business instinct,
developing early, he purchased an
old bicycle for $3, when he saw
boys ' who owned wheels making
more money than those who had
to hustle their messages on, toot.
