A Nebraska Gauthier in a Public Glove Fight With an Actress—She Does Hint Up in Forty Minutes of Fighting.
A variety actress named Curtan, who was playing at the Fashion Theatre and gives exhibitions in boxing, walked into George Doll's gambling house at Covington, Neb., July 12, and commenced to shoot craps. Doll made some insulting remark to her, and she resented it by striking him with her fist. Doll clinched her, but they were separated by the crowd. They were not satisfied, though, and so it was agreed that they should engage in a finish fight, Marquis of Queensberry rules to govern. Light gloves were provided, and the populace of the town formed in a ring in the street. The two went at it and fought for ten rounds. The woman had the best of it, and at the end of forty minutes knocked Doll out.
