ing a steam-roller, I tell you ! And that foul punch : it made me sick to see it. I thought it would have killed old Bullock. But up he got, bent double, and insisted on carrying on with it. Game !

Hit this kid Francis on the shoulder and pushed him over. The kid was too exhausted to get up. But the funny thing is, he thinks he's as good as Jack DerrIIpsey. He'd fight anything.
