Despite Dcmpscy's retirement however, Tex used to insist that the million-dollar gate would icturn. "There'll te some more big feller; come along that can punch like Dcmpscy," Tex used to say. "Thau what yon got to have to bring them out—the big fellers." Xot All Bis Fellers, .Though Evidently, from the figures a 1 hand, it is going to take more than men of the Sharkcy ami ficolt caliber to "britifr them out."
