In a fuller report of the Fulton-Miske fight at St. Paul on Friday night last, the Associated Press says: Miske opened the fight by running Fulton, sripping under the larger man's left hand and working into a clinch in an endeavor to reach Fulton's stomach. Fulton held his smaller op-fponent away, his greater strength telling, as Miske tried to reach his body. During the first three rounds Miske boxed in a crouching position, with Fulton straightening him up with left uppercuts, which .Miske took and rushed back for more. Fulton's superior boxing ability held Miske'at long range at times, but the - the ground of dependents. . When informed today of the action of the local board Cobb declared he is willing to serve whenever he is called. He became 31 years "old last December 18. ? ? ?

College football holds the record in numbers at 80,000 in round figures. Boxing holds the record in gross receipts with $270,-, 775. Baseball and racing are behind football and boxing in attendance as well as in receipts only because of space limitations. Football set its high" mark when Yale defeated Harvard in the Yale Bowl at New Haven in November, 1916. Boxing climbed to dizzy heights when Jack Johnson knocked out Jim Jeffries in the heart of the Rockies. Baseball's record in both attendance and receipts was set in the fifth game of the world's series between the Boston Red Sox and the (Brooklyn Robins' at Boston in 1916, when 42,620 menrVomen and boys paid $83,873 to see the Red Sox clinch the title. Close to 60,000. men and women wero jammed in Belmont Park on Memorial day of 190S, when the late James K. Keene's unbeaten Colin heat August Belmont's Fair Play .in the Belmont stakes. It is said that fully 70,000 watched "Snapper" Garrison ride Boundless to victory in the American derby of 1893, the year of the world's fair in Chicago, and no doubt racing receipts for a single day have approached close to the $200,000 mark.

Penna., Jan. 22.-Lew Tendler, of Philadelphia, won the popular decision over Frankie Callahan, of Brooklyn, in the'r six round bout here last night. Callahan had th^.bet. ter of the first two rounds but a'fter that the local lightweight was the aggressor and won on points. The fight was fast throughout. ' ilar international fame, wishes us tn recover either for him. There are times when the mottoes on which we established our reputation to the effect that there was no trouble too small for us to attend to, and that once having taken hold of the thing we did jnot leave go until we had seen It through, appear somewhat doubtful assets to our present day organization." Mr. Woodbrldge remarked upon the success of the convention of U. F. A. secretaries and the desire for its continuance. , The Financial Situation a3 to finances. This statement was made: "In,the financiaV st.-'-*vcut you will note that there h: far-� * substantial increase in revenu .:�e -particularly to the reveftue from our iiail insurance work and the increase in membership fees. It is not easy to draw a comparison between this year's statement and that of last year, as it was found advisable to inaugurate a somewhat more" up-to-date system of book-keeping than ha fkom Front Paqii port of the directors; report of the-secretary; aiiditor's report; report of the legislative, live stock and transportation* "committees. The evening will be given over lo entertainment under the auspices of the city and the board of trade. A veal old-fashioned country dance will be staged in the Al Azhar temple. Hail Insurance On Wednesday the report of the hail 4 insurance committee will tie made. This is one of the most important topics to come before the convention, and it is believed that the directors' resolution on the matter will be adopted. This resolution calls for the extension of the hail insurance act to every municipality in the province, and asks that when new municipalities are formed, they become automatically participants in the municipal scheme. As premium rates in Alberta are higher than those prevailing in Saskatchewan, where the municipal idea is generally operative, it is hoped that an extension of the scheme in Alberta will have the effect of lowering rates charged by line companies. Nomination of Officers Wednesday afternoon will be devoted to the nominations for president and vice-presidents with an address on "Consolidated Schools," by Hon. J. K. Boyle. The ballot for president w(II be taken on Wednesday. On Thursday nominees for vice-pre-c'dents will address the convention and ballot will follow. Consideration of resoJutions will occupy the remainder (of the day. Addresses by outside speakers' will he delivered on Thursday aud Friday evening.

Swanson, professor of economics at the University of Saskatchewan, who will discuss "the war after the war," and other economic ques^ tions affecting western agriculture. The Friday sessions will be occupied in further consideration of resolutions, and. in other convention business. The Women's Convention The United Farm Women will convene this afternoon ia Paget hall. The annual address of the president, Mrs. Walter -�*arlby will be read, and also the report of the secretary, Mrs. Barrett. On Wednesday the director's reports will be presented and president and vice-president elected. Mrs. Mc-Kinney, M.L.A., will address the ladies on "Women in.Politics" on Wednesday afternoon. The remainder of the week "will be devoted to consideration of resolutions, balloting for directors, general discussions on topics 'affecting the rural home, and addresses on timely subjects by local and outside speakers. The attendance from the southern portion of the province will be large, as all trains arriving so far from both the Altfer&yde and Macleod subdivisions have been loaded. The resolutions to bo considered at the convention will include some of the moet important ever brought before a body of organized farmers anywhere, and interest in them has been widespread. There are numerous requests that the duty on farm machinery be removed, and a Jarge number ask for government ownership of packing plants and a minimum price on live hogs. The board of directors have submitted a number of important resolutions also, among them a request that the government take overwind operate the railways. Divided into religious dominations, by far the greater number of To- rontonians are Anglicans. Next in order are Presbyterians and Methodists. PROTECT SEA TRAFFIC Loudon, Jan. 22.-(Via Renter's Ottawa Agency).-In the house o� commons, Sir Richard*Cooper asked: "How can enemy submarines oper� ate regularly in tho Mersey while British submarines cannot operate neai enemy ports in the North Sea?" Mr. McNamara. under-secretary"for the admiralty, said he was not prepared to admit that British submarines could not operate near enemy ports in the North Sea. He emphasized that conditions in the Yicinlty of enemy ports are wholly different to those near British ports. Absence of mercantile traffic enables the Germans to do extensive mining, whilst the volume of mercantile traffic In British ports necessitated the keeping of British ports clear of mines. v WANTS FAMILIES OF V Montreal, Jan. 22.-Mr. Justice Mar* eehal yesterday expressed his opinion that until the military representative at the exempt'on appeal court over which he presided could assure the court that the families of drafted men would be provided for and not have to suffer want, it would be unfair to send men to the front who claimed exemption on the ground of support. Military representative Archambault stated that he would try to get positive, proof of the fact that money would be paid to the family of any soldier, and also the exact amount.
