"The large amount of money that

Lee, Hurvurd graduate and young
American bullfighter, whoso prowess
In the ring has aroused the Jealousy of
native and Spanish matadors, Is dying
at u hospital as the result of having
been fatally gored during n fight at
In his last light Lee showed even
more nerve thiwi he has before exhib
ited. Though critically gored, he killed
the bull and walked to the stand,
where he fell. The Mexican spectators
were astounded by the courage he dis
played. They could see he had been
wounded In a ghastly manner, and
they expected that he would fall be
fore the second charge of tho bull and
be trampled to death. But after he
had been knocked down as the horn of
the Infuriated animal sank deep into
his body ho arose before tho animal
could turn. As the bull made for him
ho doftly thrust his sword luto a vital
spot, and tho animal fell dead.
Tho nerve ho displayed was so star
tling that the spectators wero thrown
Into a furor. They would have cheered
him, but wero too frightened. Then
when ho fell at the staud they realized
that cheers were out of place.
Since Leo's appearance hero last year
ho has been In demand In every part
of tho country where bullfighting ls
practiced. Ho had come from a ranch
In Texas where he had been a cow
man for several years.
