After his retirement from the ring he conducted saloons at various times and was fre-fiuently in institutions because ot 111-liealth.

A V\^OIVIAN'S OBSERVATIONS Lethbridge, Feb. 21, 1018. The Editor of Lethbridge Herald:- Dear Sir,-I would crave space In your paper to discuss tho recent local bout or fight, and as 1 believe it is very unusual for a woman\ to venture to comment on sports of this nature, I ask leniency of judgment on your part re my criticism of such performance in war time.  I wish to state right here that I am not averse to clean sport but when a district Ilka Lethbridge dlstrlcl falls to raise enough money to carry on Bed Cross work for our men who are flfehi-ing In the mud and snow and ,blood in France and elsewhere to make this world sate for tho coming generations and for our best ideals of liberty and equality, how can a club such as the Lethbridge Sports and Amusement club exist? or from what source comes the revenue ofsaiddub? How can men who cannot pledge any amount of money no matter how small to Red Cross work, on account of the high cost of livin'k, afford to pay as high as from $1.00 to |3.00 to watch ' a bout which has all the earmarks ot 743-2247 'a-what do you call It ln.-sport vernacular? Oh, yes, a frame up. A match that is fixed in other words or appears to be from a woman's standpoint, for it is. a - well known fact that- neither man. would raise a fist without .being guaranteed ascertain amount of money. I do not want to pose as a klU-joy, but don't you honestly t! Ink that the 1700 or there about that the man from tho east 4)ut in his purge and the |500 or there about that the l9cal man gets, could have been spent to better advantage and have left more real satisfaction to the spenders if it had been utilized buying shirts and socks for men overseas who are often coU! and wet and dirty, , Of course, I grant you it would not be giving, those dear pets, the .where-^] withal to have a nice little blow-out until it is tlme.^for another workout to get in shape for the next little bout, but I would like to say in "all sincerity that in,the opinion of the people who have given their husbands and sons and brothers also other relatives dear to them, and I am surel do not overstep when I Include our: men who have been to the front, have done their bit and returned. I feel safe in saying that in the opinion ot the last we feel that it those dear fighting sports must fight their places is on Uie battlefields ot the allies or In military camps, getting in shape for the battlefields. Do you know that'I heard a discussion tho other day as to whether the local tighter will be exempt from military service, one man really thinking that the fighter (?) has sufficient C^uli) orin-fluence tO'sget exemption. ' How can men expect women to save and conserve, not that 'we are not .willing to, but what is the use, when we can go down the streets ot our city and hear suph discussions as the above in business places and on the streets. Then take a quotatloii from your own papor, date Feb. 19, "More than two hundred fans watched thp workout,! at tho Alberta. Cote." Now could two hundred men, of course, there were no women there ot this city meet In one place like that and not have in tli'eir number pno father or brother or son of a man who is fighting In Flanders to keep back destruction from us, arid I wonder did those men-'at that "bril-llnnl" workout pause and think of the boys of their own flesh and blood who are waiting every hour to get the order to plunge Into the -bloodiest and most awful struggle that lias ever beeii known, and still would go on and pay out from $1.00 to ?3.00 each to seo � draw fight. If such is the case I want those men to pause and in doing so, recollect that; there are women in your midst who are not sleeping nights, thinking oC the message which they/ may receive from "over there," at any time, and wondering If there will be ba^dageii and dressings and stretcher caps and ' other necessities for tho broken, mang- ' led and wounded ..who will be carried off that field of blood, or Mr. Editor, if there was not one man In that twu hundred at the workout, who had the slightest interest in any man who la ' doing his duty In Flanders or else^ where, what are they doing here? \^hero do they come from and what la their occupation? Surely we are not to be led to believe that there are tKat many men in a city q| tliis size whoi follow gambling tor a livelihood, this is ono point I would like have explained; for one can scarcely bellev� that iu a comparatively small oity such a ' shocking state of affairs is possible, especially If they are at all acquainted with the life ot the greatest democrat, ot the world who said in 1865: "Wltli malica toward none; With charity for all; With firmness In the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and his widow and his orphan -So do all which may achieve and cherish, a just and lasting peace among ourselves, and all nations." Nor can one easily believe that the men left in our midst are all of the calibre ot those ot whom Qobby Burns said, "Give fools their silks ana knaves their wine but' that their desire is to see the time come, soon "When man'to man tho world o'er shall brothers be for a' that." ,. And In conclusion, 5Ir. ' Editor, I would like to call your attention to. the difference in attendance at. this famous workout in the Alberta Cafo,-and the meeting announced by the city : council to be held in the board ot trade building, on Monday evening last, to arrange plans to raise money for Halifax relief. l4ine brave souls put In an appearance and showed, thereby, in,' terest in sending relief ^o those who are wounded and maimed and homeless, through no fault of their own.. Surely this is man's inhumanity to man or so It seems to an onl6oker. , Thanking you for considerable spaca In your valuable paper and trusting to hear or see replies, I am. Sincerely, M. E. TAYLOR, General Delivery,- Lethbridge* I LEONARD SACRIFICES $65,000 According to. "inside" advices, Ben* ny Leonard has" sacrificed a deal of coin since he abandoned his flstlo proclivities to try to develop the nephews of Unde Sam at Camp Upton. It is well known.that Bonny was In line to collect a barrel or two of golden shook-les after he won the championship, and. he started in to do >so, but then his ; duties at Y^phank calledhlni to th� "front," and since he last .took his pa-triotlsm down on Long Island. Benny.-, hasn't had time to collect anything r--v not even a shave. You ought to seo him now!- You wouldn't think he was., a "kid" champion any longer-but that hasn't anything to do with this story;!
