treatment at tbe hands of Fallen In the second round of a bout between Jack son aud Fallon the latter made effort to knock out the man from the Fallen is evidently out of form and showed up poorly in tho first round Toward its close he struck savagely at the goodnatured colored pugilist who seemed surprised at the attack They came together with a rush in tbe secoM fold Jacksons long arms flew around his opponent in a dangerous way Tho round was brought to a sudden close by the police shoving Fallon off tho stage If it had not been for this Jackson would have knocked him out In a bout with
