ed when they went through a round

received no damage in return.
After the fight Fltsslmmona seemed
to be overjoyed at bis 'Victory, and
claimed that the reaxon that he did nut
knock out Gardner was that he broke
the knuckle, of both handa early In the
conteat. It wa, either for this reaoon
or because Fltxslminons chose to set
mainly on the defenalve that the fight
was not flnlihed long before the 20
rounds were over. Gardner', eye was
cut opn and his nose knocked aakew,
while Fltxlmmona bled a little at the
mouth. lieyond that there waa no
damage dune to either man.

poke him In the noe o he could step In
and Jnnd. There1 were occasional
fliahes when Fitsslmmona of olden
times appeared. But It was only tor
a moment. He seemed to tlr, quickly,
