tTHlil SCRANTON TRIBUNES-TUESDAY, DECEMBER 2. 1902,
Parents are responsible for the
sight of their child. Watch out
for frowns or squints. When he
reads or looks at a picture book,
does ho hold It too near or too
far? 15 Inches Is the right dis
tance. These little defects grow
faster than the child and In many
cases can be overcome If dis
covered In time.

is contended that there Is a sutllclent
sum of money now outstanding to pay

Hilly Coulter, of Dumnore, got a de
cision last hlght on points, over Hilly
Mack, of Park Hill, after ti hotW con
tested ten round tight, pulled orf In this
city before- a very cosmopolitan crowd
of Interested spectators, numbering
There has boon a bitter rivalry be
tween the two men. dating back for u
very long lime and there was no dif
ficulty some weeks ago in arranging a
match. Kuoh man had a crowd of sup
porters and admirers present last night
and tho referee was obliged at times
lo threaten to call things oft because of
the coaching Indulged In by them. Thu
simple request, "Xo remarks, gentle
men," didn't have much of a quieting
effect nml a stronger lino of language
had to be used.
The men entered the ring promptly at
10 o'clock after a rather uninteresting
six round preliminary bout between
two youngsters. They are both of a
size as regards height but Coulter was
plainly in the best condition. He
weighed In just before the fight at 142
pounds and there didn't seem to be an
ounce of flesh on his lithe and muscular
form. Mack's seconds wouldn't say
what he weighed, but ho looked as if ho
would tip the scales at 1B0 or 155 pounds
and there was a deal of flabby flesh on
A Lively Beginning.
The first five rounds were the liveliest
and things dragged after that until the
ninth, when both men livened up again.
Old timers who witnessed thu bout,
however, say that it was one of the
snappiest and prettiest fights ever seen
In this city. It seemed to be tho unan
imous sentiment that Mack would have
made a better showing If he had been
in better form.
Coulter led the fighting from the
handshake and was on the defensive
for only a few short Intervals during
the ten rounds. He used his right arm
almost entirely during tho first few
rounds and Mack just managed to get
his head out of the way of terrific full
swings from him a dozen times. Had
one of the kind that Coulter was lad
ling out In the first four rounds landed
squarely Mack would have been dead
to the world. As It was, he only got
half their force.
The men were at It hammer and tongs
from tho first call of time and before
a half minute's lighting Mack landed a
left bander under the jaw that sent
Coulter down on the floor. He took
eight seconds and then jumping with
cat-like agllty swung his right
twice In succession, but Mack dodged
back and escaped. Mack drew first
blood in this round with a right on the
Coulter started out at a. 2.20 gait in
the second, but failed to land effectively
on Mack's head, though he got In some
short arm jabs in the chest that count
ed. He was on the offensive through
out the round, but Mack got out of his
Some Bad Openings.
Mack left some bad openings in the
third round and Coulter got in with
his right several times, but never land
ed squarely. Coulter kept forcing the
fighting and had Mack on the run. The
latter got In a few on the body.
The fourth round was the hottest
mix-up of tho night and told on both
men. It was no child's play. There
was no fiddling and few clinches. Both
were on the aggressive and both gave
and took from the start. About the
middle of the round Coulter began to
see things coming his way and sailed
in. He got Mack over the ropes and the
latter seemed going, but worked out
Into the center. Then Coulter tried a
wild bull rush and went after his man,
throwing science lo the wind, Ho
swung his right four times with the
rapidity of a locomotive piston, grunt
ing viciously, but Mack ducked and got
out of the way. Coulter followed him
to the ropes and had him half over
when time was called.
The strain told in the fifth when both
men began to look groggy. There were
two lively Interchanges at close quar
ters but no effective blows were laud
ed. The sixth was a series of clinches
and tho referee worked harder thnn
either man in separating them. Mack
began to loom up In the seventh and
looked fresher than over. He landed a
hard left on the Jaw, but Coulter
blocked two stiff upper cuts.
Tho eighth round was tame, Coulter
doing the leading but landing only
lightly. Coulter landed a hard one on
Mack's Jaw at the opening of the ninth
but the latter wasn't phased a little bit
and only smiled. They were dancing
when time was called. The tenth was
fairly fast and honors were evenly di
vided each man giving and receiving.
Coulter landed a lonely punch on
Mack's nose and drew blood Just before
lime was called.
The referee's decision in favor of
Coulter was generally satisfactory,
though there were tho usual number of
dissatisfied ones. Mack's body was a
mass of livid red spots and Coulter's
face was not pretty looking,
