So now he is mlnuj an arm and halt a foot. Jack went from Canada to Join the British army in Europe. His wat a Toimitary enlistment, for he was born In Chester. Pa , 1*77. All Canada and England talked about Jack's enlistment, for he was known aa the man who had won a bout flam 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. Hia father was a man of small stature, but his mother was more than six feet tail. He had four brothers, all over six feet tall and older than himself When Jack was 12 years old his two br titers and himself traveled to Ne-\-,ia Me had an uncle in the mining bus ness there, and the boys naturally d.-;uel into the same calling. Prom Nevada oue brother and Jack wenl to Uutte. There he went to school. He was a husky lad and soon j:>in"tl the football team, playing left gua.d. When Monroe completed his high school term he went back to mining Later he played on the football team. That waa 1895 and 1696. In those years his team beat every organisation west of the Mississippi. Monroe was the lightest man in a rush line that averaged Mo pounds, yet he held his position for two years, saved $700 and got the idea one day to visit San Francisco.

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 tn two. Both bouts were scheduled to go four rounds. After that Milward and Gallagher won championship events, which made Monroe think well of himself aa a boxer.

The hout calls for ten rounds. bora of German dead were hanging against the barbed wire entanglements. 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 la hard to Hay. Subsequent attacks by the Ger mans ugainst Baitleul and Willerval failed to swing the line further back Jttat 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 fell back a little to Neuvillo Vltasse. where they made a further stand. The stubbornness �f the defense of tho British forces was shown by oiifl sergeant and five, men who were hold ing a machine gun position near Vit asse. Seeing it would become neces sary for them to abandon thi.-t post, the sergeant sent back his men and he himself atuck to his post, working the machine gun until the enemy cloned in on him. Then he took the gun and by lively work reached his own guns. Tho division tell back fighting like demons at close quarters Vitesse was later abandoned to the enemy because of the pressure below and the British look up positions just west of the town.

Captain John MacKinney of the naval tug N'ereld, an eye-witness of the fatal collisfen between the two steamers, testifying this morning corroborated evidence at other hearings hut as Mr. Justice Dryadale pointed out, differed from other witnesses in .stating that the collision occurred nearer the Dartmouth harbor than the Halifax side.

When it la considered that Mitchell is considered a first-rater, one would wonder why Talt has signed articles to meet him. 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 with Mitchell he Jumped at the chance. "I realize Just how good Mitchell la, and know he has pent many a good stronger nea- the end of the period, i �"�' to dreamland, but that lan't All the scoring took place in the third j worrying me any," stated Clonie.

A few mlnut-s later Fulton and his manager, Mik- well and gave Toronto '.he closest call they have yet received under National League regulations. At times tho westerners appeared to outskate the eastern champions, but at others Toronto had the edge. To a neutral it appeared that It was Toronto's "ability to come back strong after Vancouver had tied it up, that decided the issue. Chef Does Good Work. Play abounded in sensational features, brilliant rushes by Cameron and "They can't make 'em too good for me. March 21 to March 28 This division had originally held a sector of the line lying between the Arras and Cambral 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. Here they were holding firmly on th morning of March 28. Throughout the day they sustained heavy at-tacks but repulsed them all. The situation below them, however, kept getting worse until at one time their The better they are the better I like I tUnk waB exposed and they were em.

Toronto, April 1.-Spoaking 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 wero out to hold , their opponents down and for that ; reason tho checking was very close and there were numerous penaltiea for minor offense*. This at times used, up all the substitutes and on three occasions the teams were reduced to five men a side. They played the  first two periods without a score, 1 which shows bow close was the check-; ing. i The Mail and Empire says: ) "The series just completed has not been a satisfactory one owing to the bitter feeling between the players and the disputes over the officials. Saturday night's game, however, waa the best of the sorles, and it provided the greatest interest until the very last i second and although played under N. H L. rules, there waa very little dlf- ' feronce on the nlghi," After receiving an unmerciful panning for turning Mclanls, Strunk, Bush and Schang over to the Boston Red Sox. Connie Mack la beginning to receive praise from Philadelphia fana. The gray haired manager of the Athletics has been sawing wood all winter and taking his medicine like a man, hut now it seems that he will have a pretty fair ball club after all. Mack has twenty-two men down at Jacksonville and the critics, who are with the team, declare that the pitching department alone needs strengthening. Mack's new infield is lining up with George Burns on first,Morris Shan-1 non on second, Larry Gardner on, third, and Joe Dugan at short field. { Burns played with the Tigers last I year. Shannon was a member of the', Baltimore*, Gardner covered third j for the Red Sox, and Dugan, a grad- ' tiate of Holy Cross, won his spurs as a Mackman lust September. In the outfield Mack intends to I play Rube Oldrlng.
