He had of his right foot. So now he is minus an arm and half a foot. Jack went from Canada to Join the British army in Europe. His was a voluntary enlistment, for he was born in Chester, Pa, 1877. All Canada and England talked about Jack's enlistment, for he was known as the man who had won a bout tfem Jim Jeffries. But Jack was always a born fighter, and ho never loved anything better than to scrap. At that, Jack came of a fighting family. His father was a man of small stature, but his mother was more than six feet tall. He had four brothers, all over six feet tall and older than himself. When Jack was 12 years old his two brothers and himself traveled to Nevada. He had an uncle in the mining bus liBss there, and the boys naturally drifted into the same calling. rrom Nevada one brother and Jack went to Butte. There he went to  school. He was a husky lad and soon joined the football team, playing left guard. When Monroe completed his high school term he went back to mining. Later he played on the football team. That was 1895 and 1S96. In those years his team beat every organization west of the .Mississippi. Monroe was the lightest man in a rush line that averaged 220 pounds, yet he held his position for two years, | TABER CHEF DID GREAT WORK IN saved 1700 and got the idea one day to visit San Francisco. He played football with the Olympic club team in Frisco and incidentally went out and boxed with the big fight- J ers -who came to San Francisco to train. He boxed a lot with Jack O'Brien and Jack Moffat, and learned all he'knew up to the time he went east with Moffat. About a month after his second season with the Olympic club he entered a boxing tournament and won the amateur heavyweight championship by knocking out Willard in three rounds and Gallagher in two. Both bouts were scheduled to go four rounds Vancouver Had Better of Opening Period, and Almost Won In Last Few Minutes Toronto, April 1.-A frail bit of an athlete, who bears the name of Cor-bett Denenny and hails from the industrial town of Cornwall, won the world's championship and the Stanley Cup for the Toronto hockey club.

The bout calls for ten rounds. In agreeing to oppose such a renowned lightweight as Mitchell, the Canadian champion is taking a big chance, for he is liable to lose his crown. Mitchell, of course, would have to put over a knockout punch.

One day in the early part of December, 1904, former Champion Jeffries and Bob Fitzimmons arrived in Butte with a show and made offers to meet all comers. Monroe and several miners went to the hotel at which the fighters ware staying and put in their applications. Monroe was one of the two engaged. Monroe was matched against the champion, while his coworker was pitted against Fitzsimmons. T� the surprise of all Monroe waded right into Jeffries that night, and at the end of four rounds the Butte referee awarded Monroe the decision. games to two. Throughout the first and second periods, the teams fought without a score. Vancouver undoubtedly had the better of it in the opening period and it was only the remarkable work of Goalkeeper Harry Holmes which prevented them from securing a lead. In the second period honors were even though Toronto came back stronger near the end of the period. All the scoring took place in the third period and it was Denenny's sensational rush that finally placed Toron-{to in the winning column.

The Canadian lightweight, so far as is known, has never run out of a bout with any legitimate lightweight, and when he was asked to book on wHo. Mitchell he jumped at the chance. "I realize just how good Mitchell is; and know he has sent many a good boy to dreamland, but that isn't worrying me any," stated Clonie. "They can't make 'em too good for me. The better they are the better I like 'em. It may be the chance I have been looking for for some time. I am in this fighting game to get to the top of the ladder, and to lay away sufficient coin for a rainy day. If I should, and I believe I will, defeat Mitchell, then I am one more step nearer Leonard's crown, and my fortune is assured. "I have learned a whole lot about the fight game during the past year, and am out to learn more.

On the night's play there was little between the two teams. It took place under the eastern rules with six-man teams and the substitute penalty system, but Frank Patrick's men adapted themselves to the eastern style remarkably well and gave Toronto the closest call they have yet received under National League regulations.

Peculiar Incident An unusual incident occurred in the fighting here. Four British soldiers and one officer, whom they were helping back toward a dressing .station, were captured by the Germans, who merely took the Tommy's rifles and told them and the officer they were at liberty to go. Just what inspired this move is hard to say. Subsequent attacks by the Germans against Bailleul and Wlllerval failed to swing the line further back. Just to the south, near Fampoux, the British holding the line sent back word they would fight to the last and this was virtually what happened, for they gallantly stood their ground. On Friday and Saturday nights the British pushed their lines forward again somewhat. Below the Scarpe the Germans were finally held by a division which had been in the iine for sixty-one days up to the time of the Arras and made most spectacular fight in holding off the enemy from March 21 to March 28. This division had originally held a sector of the line lying between the Arras and Cambrai Road and Fontaine Wood to the south. Because of the falling back of the line below them, they had gradually been forced to give way, fighting desperately, until they reached the line between Wan-court and Henin. Hero they were holding 'irmly on th morning of March 28. Throughout the day they sustained heavy attacks but repulsed them all. The situation below them, however, kept getting worse until at one time their flank was exposed and they were fighting back with the Germans on both sides of them. As a result they fell back a little to Neuville Vitaase, where they made a further stand. The stubbornness of the defense of the British forces was shown by one sergeant, and five, men who were holding a machine gun position near Vit-nsse. Seeing it would become necessary for them to abandon this post, the sergeant sent back his "men and he himself stuck to his post, working the machine gun until the enemy closed in on him. Then ho took the gun and by lively' work reached his own guns, The division tell back fighting like demons at cIobb quarters. Neuville Vitasse was later abandoned to the enemy because of the pressure below and the British took up positions just west of the town.

Toronto, April 1.-Speaking of the hockey game on Saturday night in which Torontos defeated Vancouver, winning the Stanley Cup, the World sporting editor says the game was slow in spots and spectacular in others. Both teams were out to hold their opponents down and for that I reason the checking was very close and there were numerous penalties i for minor offenses. This at times used, up ail the substitutes and on three occasions the teams were reduced to five men a side. They played the j first two periods without a score, ' which shows hosv close was the check-i ing. I The Mail and Empire says: j "The series just completed has not been a satisfactory one owing to the hitter feeling between the players and I the disputes over the officials. Saturday night's game, however, was the best of the series, and it provided the greatest interest until the very last j second and although played under N. I H.L. rule3, there was very little dif-' ference on the night." and Perkins; Jacobs, Steele Schmidt. R.

After receiving an unmerciful panning for turning Mclnnis, Strunk, Bush and Schang over to the Boston Red Sox, Connie Mack is beginning to receive praise from Philadelphia fans.
