As a matter of fact, Fulton did'well enough in that bout.

Holding Miske even was' a greater feat than anythlng-AVlllard ever did in his ton-round affaii's. Willard never'boat a man wholhad youth, speed.and cleverness. He did lose to Gunboat, Smith and Tom Mc-Mnhon, both of whom were smaller than Miske, and they had less boxing skill. At any rate, none of Willard's other victims could have done much to Miske m ton rounds. ~ Three Boutt for Fulto'n .Lincoln, Nob., Jan. 29.-Fred Eulton, heavyweight pugilist, today announced he Iiad made arrangements for the following bouts:-Tom Cowler, at Denver, February 1; Charley Welnert, at Philadelphia, February 7, and Frank Moran, at New Orlei^ns, February 22.

It was against the advice of his manner, "Darkey" Daniels, that Talt fought Kansas, and this was the reason why tho pair split. �'Daniels had arranged a program where Talt was to meet a |/iumber of second-cKiss boxers'before ho was to mix it with any of tho real good boys. 'Tait's �lrctched ideas of his own boxing abijity, liowever, would not lot him see-tliiiiga that way, and he went and accepted the match,with KansdB; Today Tait is a wiser and sadder,boy.
