Willie has sV.own me r. straight Irft, a blow the chpllon?- er pnls his whole weirjht behind, that may spill a lot- of Maxic's blood and play havoc wl:h tho German's features. Trfv rlinirn for the knockout blow, if he lands it. is a left hook to the champ's chin. I doubt that Sclrmolinc carries enough guns (o pierce th? Stribling armor. Mas'j vaimlcd shon blows. rmncTies that lo carry plenty of •=toam bchird them, may licver rmrt a. more vul- neralib spot than the Gcnrsian's neck, arms or shoulders.

[ judging from tlw kicks one frequently hears about his clutching. He never has been knocked out. Schrr.elin? probably never has encountered as well-condit:o::.?rt an nthlotc as Slribling. Tho Georgian's strength—I'd say he is stronger than Maxie—his grealer. experience and the steam in cither hand ought lo carry him to (he cbam- piomhip. If I'm wrong, don't feel sorry for me.

Liane was flattered by his attentions, knew the others were jealous when they appeared together. But she was only his mother's social secretary and Clive was sole heir to enormous wealth. Should she tell him about that earlier romance? The love story of Liane Barret and Clive Cleespaugh is one of the most absorbing in modern fiction. It is told in the new serial, "Heart .of Liane," written by Mabel McElliott. Stage .life, fashionable New York society and daring underworld intrigue are all accurately pictured. "Heart of Liane" is a story you will not forget. Watch for the first chapter! It begins Tomorrow In Courier News
