IN THE RING. I Soldier's Round in the Big Fiht. I (Passed by Censor.) In the course of a cheerful and humor- ous letter received this week by Mr. Larry Warner, manager of the Globe Theatre, Clydach, from Private W. J. Phipps, a Swansea boy on active servic. with the Black Watch cn the Western front writes: I may tell you that we have had a good time since we caiue over here, and a warm time too. We are now having a few days rest ai'ter having been eleven days in the bring line. and 1 may tell you that we d?erve it. I have entered .he ring for the biggest fijht I have e\c? ha? iu! my life, and I am ery pleased to teE you that I have got tnrough the firt rc.:¡d: all right, gaining the points for defence. Of course, we did no attaciiiig-we left that to the Huns, but I can tell you he kept well in his corner. Bot while, our artillery and theirs were a,icing a few rounds, Kaiser Bill nearly s< .,red one on me, for he 6ent one of those Yankee hooks which landed within twenty yards of our trench and sent up a volume of earth which came over me like rain. I thought for the moment that I was in ray corner and that Dai Dolling tvas giving me a douche. But I got over that all right. Later on another straight-left came and landed overhead, b'lt no points were scored, as I covered up well. The remainder of the round was pretty evenâBill smashed a few houses in our corner, and we smashed a few trenches in his corner. We are now waiting to enter lor the second round, which will be in a few days time. We ar<jj keeping fit, and are confident of victory, so Kaiser Bill will come down from a first-rate fighter to one of a lower class.
