Of all famous battles in the ring this was most dramatic. Dempsey was the absolute idol of his time. For years ihe had been king among the middle- I weights.

Referee It was the North and the East R. Wilson. against the South and the West. A flood of money poured into New Or- leans from around New York. -But so much gold was shipped in from Cali- fornia and so much local money ap- peared' In New Orleans that Fitzsim- mons men were lucky to get odds a- gainst the champion. The fight was held In 'the historic Olymphic club scene of many a'famous championship battle. A special ring was for it. The ropes were stretched on heavily padded posts. The floor of the ring instead of being of boards covered with a felt mat, as in modern contests, was of black sand, packed down until it was nearly as hard as asphalt. It was said "to have a little spring underfoot and to be as good as any turf. In the old days bat- tles were usually fought on the turf. Draws Great Crowd Vast crowd assembled at New Or- leans. The club seated only about 450C people and tickets -could not be bought at any price after they" had been goo- bled up in the first rush.

They smiled across at each other in a friend- ly good foemen who respect- ed each other, and who were to fight hard without malice. The chief of pol- ice weighed the gloves, and then the fighters stripped down to the fighting costume and went over to the scales Dempsey stood aside and 'watched closely while "Lanky Bob" was weigh- ed. He -scaled exactly ISO 1-2 pounds. The run had taken off four and one- half pounds. Dempsey weighed 147 1-2 pounds. The weighing over both re- turned to their corners and put on the loves. Dempsey offered to wager 000 with Fitzsimmons. Fitz accepted the bet, b.ut the chief of police refused to allow money up or any bet to be made in the ring or at the ringside. And then, without further delay, the bell rang and the fight for the world's championship began.

WILL MEET n FAMOUS JACK RYAN Winnipeg, Aug. next big affair in the pugilistic line in Winni- peg will be the match between Tony Caponi and Jack Ryan, which will take place on Friday next at the Auditorium. It was originally intend- ed to pull off the bout the follow- ing week, but for various causes a Change was made. a good workout Eddy's Tactics Everybody has seen Eddie box, but few have seen him in his present shape. For .two weeks back the "bout has been discussed .from, every angle, and the relative- merits of the two combatants compared. It .will foe a between a champion and one who wants to be one, a combination that without doubt makes one of the most spectacular mills possible .to be put on. Eddie has the way of getting them in. He is fast on his feet and his ability to block is much advanced. He has a terrible right-hand jab and an upper marked K. O. nearly every time it connects. That the bout will be like chainlightning while it is go- Ing, there can be no doubt The nigger wallops him some with an air of Johnson. .He also protects well and blocks with a style of his own. Eddie lands well and uses his- head. Eddie's Measurements The measurements taken of Marino today by the sporting editor of The Herald are as follows: feet 4 1-S inches. pounds. inches. inches. 1-2 inches. Across 1-4' inches. inches. One arm 1-S inches. inches. Chest 1-2.inches. Marino trains at the East End fire sation every day at p. m. AtteM's Showing Attell is a picture in the ring. is quick, speedy on his feet He has a tremendous build, indicating power to give and receive much punishment His punches are fast and effective. Today -he .boxed .two rounds with two volunteers, and showed his marvellous ability to jab and his lightning and scientific method of attack and de-- fence. Without a doubt Attell is one of the cleverest men in the ring to- day. Comparative Training Both boxers indulge in somewhat the same form of .training. Marino indulges in four rounds of ibag punch- ing. Ke then takes three or four rounds with the exerciser, after he gets into it with Griffo and rubs down afterwards. Attell punches the bag for some time, and follows with several min- utes' work with the exerciser. He then does some shadow work and then boxes a few rounds with anyone who will put on the gloves. After this work he does some acrobatic work on a mat and finishes with a rub. Gif e Your Shoes A Chance Don't neglect destroy the natural toughness of the leather vJth poor or harmful dressings.
