It was a fast battle from start to finish.
There was action In every louud, nnd tho
large number of Haubcr's pals In the au
dlenco had plenty of opportunities to
cheer. There Is no doubt that Hnuber
was the favorite of tho ciowd, and he
remained a favorite throughout tho battle.-
Thoso who expected to sec a slow, un

Secrnl times when Haulier rushed,

with nu mlsfnitune and always leached

the .toys were boxing and their eager
ncs to get at each other.
Philadelphia .lawn put on some big
league stuff hi the eniller 1 omuls, when
he distracted Ilnuber's attention long
enough to allow Ilrother .lack to get lu
some telling blows. Haulier was plainly
worried and hurled 11 few kind words lu

was making faces at Henry, but nt a late
hour this could not be verllled. At any

That's why we leave the taste
of Fatimas entirely up to you.

taste of Fatimas better than any
other cigarette they ever smoked.

is that Fatimas will give you
cigarette-comfort at all times.
This is why they have won the
