In tha history of ring contests Battling
Nelson, tha aturdy little Dane from II It
nole. knocked out James Edward Britt of
Ban Francisco at Colma late thla afternoon.
The end came In the eighteenth round and
was a clean-cut, fairly won victory. Thla
la a almpla atatement of the result. The
story of the battle Itself furnishes a thril
ling story. No element that goea to give
the fight the superlative title of "greatest"
waa missing. The aurroundlngs, the crowd,
the known bitterness of the men toward
each other, the uncertainty aa to whether
there would be a fight at all up to within a
brief quarter of an hour before the fight
actually negnn, the cleverness, gameness
and endurance displayed by the two boxers
these are what made the fight a great
It waa the atory of many another ring
conteat tha aucceas of the atrong, sturdy
enduring fighter against a clever, cool
boxer. Thla In brief la a description of
Nelson and Brltt'a Ting characteristics, re
apectlvely. From the very first moment of
the fight until Referee Oraney finished the
count of ten aeconds Nelson forced the
fighting. Though battered by Innumerable
bruising blows on the face and body and at
times very tlrid Nelson never for one
moment gave ground. He came back after
very vicious attack, the clever Britt al
ways ready to exchange blowa. For the
rushing, forcing, persistent tactics of Nel
son Britt could find no effective counter.
The Callfornlan tried every blow known to
him and he apparently knows thorn all to
atop Ma tireless opponent. In every way he.
failed. It is true he punished Nelson
severely, knocking him down once and
staggering him several tlmea, but never
waa he able to bent him back and change
the aspect of the fight
. Brltt'a Only Chance.
J Only once. In the third round, did It
a ftnnfar to thnaa clnne pnnnrh in tiirlirn the
w tide of battle that Britt might win. In
this round he reached the must vulnerable
snot on Nelson s body, his stomach, with
two terrlflo right-hand blowa that carried
punishing force behind them. Nelson falt
ered for a moment and doubled over,
Quickly turning his attention to Nelson'a
face, Britt sent In a terrific right across
that dropped the Dane to his kneos. There
was a great shout from Brltt's friends,
but the Elation waa short lived. Nelson
got up before the timer could reach the
count or two and rougnt tne only way ne
knowa how to light always coming toward
hla man. At this critical time for Nelson
the gong sounded for a rest, a most cheer
ful note to Nelson'a supporters. The call
of time for the succeeding round, however
found the much battered fighter fresh and
ready to resume.
Nelson was always the first to begin
rounds, tnough not always the first to land
a blow. Time after time hn would glide
along after Britt, much after the style
of I Ittslmmons, never clever on his feet,
but always seeking to shorten the distance
between his opponent and himself. Except
in soots, the rounds were all Drettr much
alike. Nelson alwaya forcing, Britt always
giving ground: Krltt trying to keen Nelson
at the end of hla snappy left hand and
the Dane using every means to get Inside
the circumference of the clever Callforn
lan'a two good hands. Whenever Nelson
broke down the defense or accepted the
blowa aimed at him he would hammer
away at the body, alwaya coming out of
a ennen witn awinging at tne jaw.
Britt la Knocked Oat.
The eighteenth proved the end for Britt.
A detailed account of that round, which
listed about two mlnutea. ahowa little dif
ference from the othera. Britt waa tired
but game and willing. Nelson forced him
anount the ring and gave manv body blowa
alwaya boring in. He cornered Biitt and
drove him against the roues. Britt squirmed
out and sent in a terrific left to the stomach
that appeared to hurt Nelson. Nelson
covered up his body and Britt awung for
his face. Quick aa a flash Nelson sent In
a snort, sharp lert-nand blow to Britt
stomach. He gave way and atenned hack
crouching In order to deoelve Nelson and
give himself time to recover. Nelson saw
tne damage nis mow had Inflicted, how
ever, and pressed on. He forced Britt into
his own corner, and there. In a rally that
lasted but a few momenta, the end came.
Britt went down suddenly. Nelson says it
waa from a blow on the Jaw. Britt had
no clear idea after the fight wnai nut him
out, but in tne opinion of those who were
close by it waa the blow In the etomac
that took all hla remalnlnar strength an
ha fell from exhaustion and waa counted
out Dy uie omciai umeKeeper.
Beta Declared Off.
Referee Oraney cauaed much aurpriso
after he had been chosen to act by declar
tng all befs off. Subsequently he gave out
to the newspaper men that beta made after
his acceptance would atand. Thla waa
about t:38 o'clock, which waa an Important
point to bettors wht posted their money
. prior or aubaequently to Oraney's declar'
Statement by Graaey.
Following la a atatement by Eddie
It waa the greatest lightweight fight of
modem times. Nelson kept after Britt
all the time. He was too strong and tough
lor unit. 1 mougm rseison would w

gamiest boy I ever aaw In the rinr. H

I went over to his corner and said
"Jimmy, you and I will be friends."

Would You Make an Investment Paying
BIG DIVIDENDS FROM THE START?
Here is an opportunity to make $100 earn you more than $500 inside of ten years with
absolutely no risk. Can you beat that in any other than the manufacturing line?
There are hundreds of prudent, cautious, hard-headed
and sensible men in this country who would willingly apply
a part of their capital to the development of a business if it
can be vouchsafed to them that they will get an honest run
for every dollar invested, and an honest accounting for every
dollar expended. It is to this class that this advertisement
is respectfully dedicated.
The Duplexophone Company of Lincoln, Neb., is incor
porated and capitalized at $300,000.00 for the manufacture
and sale of Duplexophone Talking Machines and Kecords.
Nearly three years have been spent in remodeling and fitting
up buildings, installing machinery, foundry, etc. The prelimi
nary work is all done. The factory and stock on hand in
voices more than $25,000. AVe are now in a position to manu
facture our machines, with the exception of installing two new
metal-working machines, which have been ordered. "We lack
the necessary capital to properly exploit our business and pay
for these two new machines, and have decided to sell a small
block of the stock. Every dollar of money so obtained will
go into active use in the manufacture and selling of Duplex
ophone Talking Machines and Records at once, and at large
profits. We are all ready to go ahead; no delays. As soon
as, or before, this block of stock is sold we w?ll be placing the
machines on the market, and by the end of the present year
there will be a dividend declared that will mean a good profit
on the investment. The profits will increase with the business.
We are offering preferred, accumulative stock, guaran
teed to pay 8 per cent to its holders before a cent of profit goes
into the hands of any of the original members of the company
and the promoters. If these men did not have absolute faith
in the enterprise they certainly would not offer such a propo
sition. The Lincoln Commercial Club appointed a committee to
investigate this business in every detail and here is the report
of that committee:
'l, the undersigned, committee appointed bj the Un
co In Commercial Club to iiikpert the factory, affairs, patents and
prospects of the Duplexophone Co., beg to report that we believe
the statements contained In the company's prospectus are all
facts, and we, without reserve, pronounce the Duplexophone to
be far superior to any talking machine we ever heard before.
The huKines management of the company is In competent hands.
We therefore heartily endorse this proposition. (feigned)

"At regular meeting of the .Board of Directors of the
Lincoln Commercial t'luh, held August 81, 1005. the above re
port was read and approved. (Signed)
"J. E. MILLElt, Pres."
We have a talking machine that is so far superior to all
others manufactured that a demonstration of its points of
merit is all that is necessary to sell it. It does its own talking,
and if it does not prove itself to be at least 100 per cent better
than any other talking machine manufactured, we ask no
The five talking machine factories in operation before we
started our factory, will turn out this year 1,500,000 machines,
und each of these factories is thousands of machines behind
with its orders. One record factory is now turning out more
than 3,000,000 records per month, which brings them in more
than $600,000. Every record-making company is away behind
on its ordere. The Duplexophone Co., with its vastly im
proved product, can easily do as well in the next year as any
other company engaged in this business. Our patents enable
us to compete with all other factories, with all the advantage
on our side. The demand for first class machines is increasing
rapidly, and no company ever had brighter prospects for a
successful future than the Duplexophone Company.
We respectfully request all those interested in this propo
sition to call at our office at 118 South 14th street, Lincoln,
Neb., where we will go into the matter in detail and show you
the machine and FACTS about our factory, the business and
its profits. All we ask is a chance to demonstrate these points,
and we leave the rest with you. We are not offering a cheap
proposition, but a genuine, investment of the greatest value.
The officers and directors of the company are well known
business men of Lincoln who are not given to dreaming. The
company has a good standing in Lincoln and is heartily en
dorsed by the Conynercial club, which has thoroughly investi
gated the business.
If you want an investment that will bring you in a nice,
steady income, here is the greatest opportunity offered in a
long time. And you must apply a. once, as the proposition
will be open but a very short time.
Call at our office and get a prospectus, or drop us a line,
and one will be mailed to you. ,
