ticular motive In giving the fight feat In

black eyes- seen In Philadelphia In many a
day. Piddle bad done the palntln.

tree: and Tony Hlddle left the ring with a
dent In the left aide of hla chest and Just

hard tinder the tutorship of "Jawn"
O'Brien. And the ten. years' training
showed yesterday when he got Gelger Into
the ring.' The battle only lasted three
rounds, but during those nine minutes of
fighting What Hlddle did to Gelger was
a plenty.- His last blow blackened Gelger'
cyea tend then Hlddle remarked, "Now, 1
guess weare quits.''
The two men then shook hand. In de
scribing the fight today.. Hlddle said:
"It waa give and take and there never
waa any hard feeling between uf, but now
our account Is settled. So long as the
details of the -fight have become public,
1 tint It mentioned that ten years ago
Gelger. cava me a terrible Ticking. He
amaahed In with, right and licked me good
and. I decided that I. would some day give
blm a similar dose."

Allen Freeman to
Give His Wealth to
Would Establish Theaters Where
Radicalism Could Be Taught
by the Drama.
NEW YORK. Dec. l.-tSpec!al Tele
gramsAllen Freeman of Kast orange,
one of the richest soctallxts In this coun
try, through the dralh of his father, Joel
Francis Freeman, formerly treasurer of
the Standard Oil company, is planning to
use his wealth to promote free thought.
He Is working out the Idea of an Inde
pendent theater. In which radicalism can
be taught by dramas that will deal un
flinchingly with religion, molality and
riches and poverty.
"I want to employ this money to educate
people." Freeman said. "Nothing In the
world can accomplish more than educa
tion. It seems to me that an excellent
Idea would be to promote free thought by
Investigating and disseminating facts con
cerning all foundations, all systems of
morality, the distribution of products of
labor and resources of nature. This can
only be attnlned by means of free lectures
on these subjects, free schools where they
can be explained and posxlbly through an
Independent theater one that Is nut con
trolled by any special Interests where rad
ical plays can be produced."

Now th&t the time for coasting and other winter sports is at
hand, we want to speak a word of WARNING, with particular
reference to COASTING.
On all streets on which there are street car tracks, and on
all hills which cross or terminate on streets having street car
tracks, there is a CONSTANT DANGER to those indulging in the
exhilarating sport of coasting.
Man and women, as well as boys and girls, hare lost their .
lives, or have been seriously injured by dashing into moving
or standing cars on their sleds or travelers.
Why jeopradise your lives by coasting where the hazard is
so great, when tnere are so many places in this city of hills, where
this sport may be indulged in with perfect safety?
