clal timekeeper.
The Mycr party entered the ring at 8:57 :
nnd received n qulot welcome. Immediately
after Myor took his seat Bowcn walked across
ho ring nnd shook bands with him. Bowcn

Time was called at 0:15 : anil the men began
their fight for a f3OOU purse.
When the men advanced to the center of
ho ring Bowcn was looking confident and
Mycr was smiling. Mycr wns aggressive
nnd Uowen was wary.
In the tint round Bowcn knocked
ilyer down twice , whllo ho himself received
mt slight punishment. Bowcn used his left

leavlly on Myer's heud nnd body , ono blow
on the ribs In the second i-ound sounding all

shmontln the Ilrst. round , hut was the ag
gressor all the time and seemed conlkleiit.
Myer received a third knockdown in the
.hlrd and his nose was bleeding profusely.
In tnoHttli. sixth nnd seventh rounds Mycr
continued on the npgrosslvo and received
most of the punishment , Bowen escaping
with n heavy blow on the forehead nnd ono
on the arm. v
In thti eighth round Mycr was still the np-
presser , but not as cngor as formerly. Ho
trlod to make Bowen load , but the latter was
cautious and declined until near tlio end of
the round , when Myor knocked him down
The next two rounds were nbout even ,
Bowen possibly having n little the best of It.
Ju the eleventh round Bowen smasncd
Myor in the eye , causing- to blood pro
fusely. Still Myor continued oa the agpTJS-
The Now Orleans mnn was thoroughly
irouscdln thu twelfth round and fought vic
iously , but with bad Judgment. Toward the
end of the round both landed heavy rights ;
Myor seemed groggy.
Ilounus in nnd 14 Myor scotncd disgusted
wltn uowon's tactlca and begged Andy to
load. Myor straddled in too far and received
aleftinthoatoma'jh. Bowcn landed loft In the
stomach. Mycr landed ono or two good ones
and Bowcn turned to run , but Mycr clinched
lilin. Myer land his rliUit tolld on Bowen's
liond. Myor dropped his nnr.s to urge Bowen
on. Desperate clinch occurred In the middle
of the rlnff with honors csy. .
Hounds 15 , 1(1 ( , 17 Myor's ' facial expres
sion was laughable. Myor led for face nad
Bowcn gave him hU head. Bowen landed
right and lolt on t.ho body. Myer was still
the aggressor. Ho had n terrible black and
blue oyo. Bowen landed richt hand swlnp
on the body and Mycr looked savngo. The
round WHS tiresome. Myor till nnd ran away ,
came back and landed right ; Bowcn landed
right nnd loft on Alror. I5owon landed n
heavy light on Myor'a stomach and the larce
nudionco cheered. A clinch occurred In
Myor's corner with Myer on the ropes.
Bowen lilt Myor a heavy right on the Jaw
and nearly upset himself from the force of
the blow.
Rounds 18 , 10,20 Myer made a very rash
attempt to land his rliht ; but Bowcn ducked
the blow , but caugut it a moment lator.
Myer was still the aggressor , anil Bowen
played for his adversary's wind. Sharp
clinch occurred , and Myer landed n terrible
right ; another clinch occurred , nud Mycr In
breaking away foil to the ground. Mycr was
doing a good deal of the lighting , and seemed
In these rounds to gain ground. Howen hit
Myor n drlvo and urovo him out of the rppos.
Bowcn led and landed , knocking Myoi * to the
ropes. KoforeoBrowstor cautioned Myor to
light fair.
Kounds 21 , 22 , 23 Myer was enffor to fin
ish the light , but could not land. Boweu
landed a heavy right on Myor's sore oyc.
Bowoa landed loft en the stomach without a
return. Myor landed n vicious right nnd
committed several fouls.
Hound IM The round opened nnd Myor
fouled Bowen several times , and the crowd
became boisterous nnd cried , "Foul , foul. "
In the midst of a wwtudo by Myer's and
Bowen's seconds Kofereo Browstcr awarded
the battle to llovvon on a foul.
In n conversation with several Myor tnon
they stated that ho Justly lost the buttle. On
the whole , however , It must bo said that the
mill was an unsatisfactory one.
Note. At midnight President IsV well sent
a telephone incssugo to the nowspanora sav
ing that the linal decision in the light would
bo rendered at noon tomorrow , Wednesday.

This wns the news contained in letters re
ceived yesterday by inorctmnti cnunged In

of truth In the rccont reports of another

Piiii.Annu'iiu ; May 10. Joe Duhrlingor of
Wrightstown , Bucks county , Is nearly laugh
ing himself to death over the Now Hops ex
tension of the Hudson railroad which runs
by his farm. Ho weighed l r > pounds three
months ago. The first train passed his farm
on March 1. Duhrlingor hns laughed so
much since then that ho only weighs
110 pounds. The doctors nro puz
zled nnd Duhrliugor's friends nro
awaiting the result with alarm.
Durllnger is nbout fifty-eight years old. Ho
is a native of Germany. When the Now
Hope extension wool into operation with a
stntion nt Walton , nbout half n mile from his
farm , his property increased in vnluo nt once
nnd he began to grin. All hU talk was of
Iho improved vnluo which the extension
would give his land nnd how his posterity
would benefit thereby. Then ho boirnn to
neglect his own work nnd took to watching
the rnilroad men at their work. Ho win so
tickled that ho took several of the railroad
men to board for almost nothing. Duhr-
llngcr's mirth grow ns tlmo wont on nnd ho
< lci ! nothing but sit on his porch nnd wait for
the trains to go by. His keen oars detected
the whistle in the distance and thU wns so
gratifying to him that ho would
burst out into nncontrollablo laugh
ter. Ho would inspect the track , laugh
ing quietly to himself nnd return to
his house to await the coming of the next
' train. Ho knows the time-table by heart
and can tell the time every train Is duo. llo
allowed everything to co to pit-cos on his
farm. His wife hopes that the novelty will
wear off ana that ho will regain his normal
state. Ho does not laugh now quite ns much
n ho did , but his interest In the care of the
road Is undlmlnlshc-d. Monday ho walked
eighteen miles to testify for the railroad In n
case of trosrnss on the track.
