' FREDDIE WOODS wan wllllnR to

Thoy hd been good pal.
When Jack landed buck In Mont
roue, Kruddlo wan tho first fellow ho
looked up, .
"Half tho folks In thin town think
you ran lick me," Jnck told him,
"and tho rent of them think I can
lick you. I-t'n stage u go und set
tlo It. A lot of folks will pay money
to iieo us scrap."
Woods agreed and Dempsey rent
ih! Mooo Hall. Hn put out hand
bill", did iomo ballyhoolng, and ad
vertised a dimcu to follow tho fight.
Jack Hrortw n K. ).
When tho people of tho tirwn
started drifting In, Jack wan nt tho
door selling tickets. After custom
ern censed to comu ho went up stnlrs
and doonod n pair of trunks. Then
tho huttlo was on, '
It only took Jack four rounds to
knock Woods cold.
"Ho slapped mo pretty hard," ns
Jack now recalls It, "Out I slappod
him a bit harder. Woods know n
lot about boxing ami all I could do
was slum, Ono of thnso slums went
homo and tho danco was on!"
Dompsny helped stage tho danco
and afterwards paid Woods $15 as
his share. Jack had other expenses
to meet and when hn Kt throuKh
sotlllng up, found that ho had tiro
con about ovon.
Bet Out for Reputation
Tho bout, howovor, gavo Jack a
lot of confldonco, nnd realizing that
ho wns shy on a real reputation ns a
hoxor, ho sat out to gather ono.
Smaller flKhtu turned up around
Colorado and Utah and Jnck wont
from placo to placo, either In, on,
or undornoatb a frolgbt car.
Ho was ready to battlo whoncver
thora was a llttlo plcco of change la
It. Ho seldom argued over what lie
wan to bo paid, however, and Boomed
to lovo, mainly, tho Idea of stop
ping into anything that looked llko
a ring. In a groat many ot hla early
fights ho gavo away much weight
to his oppononts.
Kvcry narw and then Jnck would
bum a freight rldo back homo to see
