He is going to fight again and try to recover his lost title and, even If he fails, he is perfectly sat - itded with what he had gotten out of his years in the prize ring. He has been a champion for seven years and he has won one big kick out of it and about $3,110,000. He has found that some one cared for Jack Dempsey and not Just for the rhamnlon.

"Vell, - Jack," was my first question, "now that you've been through it all, from the bottom to ' the championship tell me, was it worth the price?" Worth the Pries. "Tou bet, your life it was," said Dempsey vehemently. "I made a iot of money, a co:pla of million, I guess, and I've got some of it left. 1 m not saying how much because Kearns may read this.
