The Mission of the Physical Drill – Strength Magazine – May, 1926

“You damnable coward! I’ll wipe up the place wit you.” This bandinage the gentleman took with stoical good grace. In fact, he laughed right in the Bruiser’s· face. The big Bruiser became grossly indignant at this, and very promptly prepared to administer a sound thrashing to the smiling gentleman. It happened in Kelly’s saloon and a goodly crowd was there. Somehow the Bruiser, who had a reputation as a bully, did not like the gentility and refinement of the young man who sauntered up to the bar next to him and nonchalantly ordered a whisky and soda.
