DOMBEY AND SON,
OUR MUTUAL FRIEND,
In the second round Slavin directed
his blows at Kilrain’s ribs directly under
the heart, and he landed too many of
them to please Kilrain’s friends. Not
withstanding this, Kilrain again had the
best of the round. He nearly knocked
Slavin over tlie ropes by a blow, on the
neck, and hammered SI ivin’s head and
In the third round Kilrain again
pounded Slavin to the ropes, but this
seemed to exhaust his strength. Slavin
struck Kilrain under the left ear and
knocked him flat. He got up, rallied
and clinched, but in the break away was
again knocked down. The gong saved
him from defeat in this round. He was
in great distress. His seconds braced
him up, and he managed to respond to
the call of "time,” but Slavin hit him os
he pleased. Kilrain was knocked down
four times, and he was bleeding in
stream? from a broken nose. Kilrain’s
only hope was in clinching tactics, but
eacii time he tried it he received terrible
punishment in his ribs.

Dickens was the greatest novelist who ever
lived. No author before or since his time has
won the fame that he achieved, and his works
are even more popular to-day than during

pathos, masterly delineation of character,
vivid descriptions ol places and incidents,
thrilling and skillfully wrought plots. Each
book is intensely interesting. No home should
