He's a swell-looking fellow." The king came frolicking u;), his big arms waving, his grin broad. Wise-cracks poured oul of him as if he were Jfnuny Wulker. He doncect around on his foes, laughing and talking—this Joe K. Brown of the prize ring. . "Sure, I like to fight," he said. "The trouble with most ol llicsc fighting guys is, Ihey got sinus trouble.". "Whal do you mean, sinus trouble?" "They don't like to sign for .fighls,' 1 replied the kingfish.

His swelling muscles blushed pink as he worked faster. Then he turned to special exercises. He was so enthusiastic his trainer, 3am Buckman, had to stop him. "Haw, haw," laughed the king. "Know why T work so hard?.... BO I can get up a bigger appetite.
