when the two big boxers got after each other with nil the fury of threw all dis cretion to the winds and kept up a rain of dreadnaiight blows upon each other the Canadian for the first This furious caveman battle in the ring caused him to tell a I was over there early in the he and I had quite a to do with our We soon dropped all that and just got the men to Put the gloves on them and them at

who were dis ploying this They Feel Miflhty When it was when one of the contestants had gone down for tho count and wan up lootie again with Another reign of pandemonium when the two heavies shook hands in the They felt mighty fit that night of mighty capable of taking on the Huns and accounting for which is the frame of mind wo want them For they had had tliu old fighting spirit shown tho fighting spirit the Canadian officer had told me was ono of the big and contributing factors to the suc cess of the Canadian forces over Its a wonderful thing for our army that it is going in for this sort of It builds up morale and In it makes for fighting And it does not make for Ask your parson or priest who is In a cantonment about if you dont believe The chances arc ID to 1 that he had a ring
