though Dempsey made him cry quits in nine
rounds. Jack has sinoo said that Dacey both-
ered him more than any othor who fought
u i 0lm Up to that time, as he jabbed him with
3 tthe left, and he hadn't then learned
how to " btop " well. Dompsey has
i long since gTown out of Daceysolass,and the
light-weight deserves credit for courage in
facing the Nonpareil. Dempsey played with
him for three rounds and Dacey seomed to be
getting a shade the best of it, but when
Mitohell's dread out loose in tho final round
it was as if Maud 8. and Western Belle trot
ted a match evenly to the three-quarters and
then the matchless queen came Lome as she
liked, with Johnny Murphy looking back in
-in his seat. Another spectator likened the
bout to the races between George and Myers.
m Myers trotted along easily behind Qeorgo
until tho last lap, then passed him as if he
were standing still and burst the tape with
his hands down.
Boating upon the Harlem has run to canoes,
sailboats and barges with the close of the re

the Now York .thlotio Club, which takes

Thereat two kinds of really good boxing
gloves. Both sorts are made with the best of
sheepskin and it Is universally called kid.
Boston boxers are partial to old Bill Busbee's
gloves, while New York and Philadelphia
sparrers prefer Fiolds's. The last-named glove
is made with what is called extended finger
tips and afford a first-class chance to grin the
hand. An effort was made to get Sullivan
to use a clove with the long finger-tips,
but he still prefers the variety he got
his first practice with around Boston.
' Old Jem ward, who died a year ago, aged
j eighty-four, for years champion of England,
would never use any but finger-tip mittens,

walked to tho dressing rooms of the Mott Ha-
i ven grounds after breaking tho wonderful
i English Vaultor Bay's record at the New York
j Athletio Club's medal games on Saturday
j! afternoon, he told The Evekino Would man
t his opinion of the British champion. " He's
1 a wonder, no doubt," be said, "and I havo
not the slightest intention or disparaging
him, but I don't admire his 'lapping." It
seems to me more liko an acrobatio f eat
than a fair trial of speed and strength. No,
I don't have any idea of imitating Barry's
method. Some of the boys say they intend
to practice that style, and I think if some
light-bodied, good jumper becomes an adept
at pole-climbing he will raise the record to

trio views he may havo hold on tho subjects
of politics, religion or government so long
as ho furnished them, with those things that
ruu?preoiftted y eTory youthful mind, and
with them he was a favorite who had no rival.
A proof of this is the fact that for many
days after his departure for Chicago they col
lectedat the regular hour about tho familiar
pench In the square where he was aooustomod
to meet and entertain them with the capacious
pockets of his oat overflowing with sweets
and goodies, and refused to bollovo that ho
had deserted thorn for good.
After continued waiting and disappoint
ment, however, they were forced to holievo
that their friend had forsaken them, and
there was a general howl of grief when thoy
realized that the feasts of peanuts and gum
drops were things of the past, and that they
would have to depend for the future for re
fresnmont of this kind upon the sporadio
coin that they could succeed in collecting
from their parents and relatives. The pros
pect was apparently so dismal that some of
them who obtained the address of Citizen
Train and were able to write sent letters to
Ri,??11 of Pathotio pleadingBt tolling him
that life was a blank, devoid of pleasure with,

love for him and begging him to roturn to

According to latest accounts, however,
Citizen Train is so busily encagod in boom

the blood of the good people of Chicago and
the West turn cold with his terrible maledio
tions against tho present sooial system and
nlB diabolical suggestions as to what his An.

reply to these appeals of his littlo friends in
New York, who still continue to haunt the
square in the hopo that one day he will sud

joy and gladness to their hearts.
It is tho popular belief among the children,
who formerly comprised Citizen Train's en.
tire social circle, that the good man has been
enticed away from them oy unfair means,
and the story of some malicious person that
the superior attractiveness of the boyB and
girls of the Western city has u good deal to
do with his prolonged absence has made
them wildly jealous of their supposed rivals

"I don't believe," said one little tot. with

tne children of Chicago are any nicer than
we, for ho often used to toll ub that he
thought wo were the best girls in the country.
At any rate, I am going to write him a letter
and ask him about it, and I am sure ho will
answer it, and say it isn't true."
Another little girl informed the reporter
that she prayed every night that Mr. Train

a peculiarly crooked gray eyo, and was fur

truding upper lip t and lastly, a pair of slight
shoulders clad in a blue-cheeked shirt and
almost hidden by tho broad straps of a pair of

the Sergeant," again in an undertone. He's
only eleven years old and he is fitting for

The lad moved away, and, as he mounted

Sound bass, nearly three foet long, caught at

ingenuous supers, more or less clumsily clad
in skins, would have represented the Terpsl.
chorion' beasts, but we've changed all that
now. The management aro unwilling to
entrust such realistic work to supers. They
havo suggested tho advisability of introducing
trained animals, and have been disousslng that
idea very extensively. Now. in case real ani
mals be introduced, they will clash very pain,
fully with the human members of the cast.
The actors and actresses Insist upon having
their dressing-rooms on the siago in conse-
auenoe of the many changes the play requires
iiemtomako. The animals will need those
rooms for obvious reasons, and that is why
the actors and actresses strenuously objoct
to this sacrifloo to realism. This difficulty
has caused a hitoh in the arrangements and a
temporary stoppage of work. It will proba
bly be overoomo during tho ensuing week.
The Bijou Opera-House has not boon lucky
since last May, when Henry E. Dixey as
sumed a portion of tbe management of tho
house. The ensuing season is felt to depend
almost entirely upon the production of

number of out-of-town managers are coming
to New York to witness its production.

An offer has been received by cable from
W. W. Kelly, manager of the Prinoess's
Theatre, London, for " Editha's Burglar,"
which the London manager 1b anxious to give

Hawthorne's performances, which aro shortly
to take placo there. In tho event of this
arrangement being made, the American child,
known aa littlo Oelie, who will be remem.
bered by thoso who saw " The Golden
Giant" at tho Fifth Avenue Theatre last
season, will play the part now being renderod
at the Lyceum Theatre by littlo Miss Leslie.
Richard Golden and M. A. Kennedy aro to
follow the example of Bobton and Crane
and Evans and Hooy. and be starred through
the country as comedians of equal merit, on
der the management of W. W. Randall. They
are to appear in a farco-comedy entitled
"The Fourth of July," written by O. A.
Byrne. This will probably be produced at
the Fourteenth Street Theatre next May. Mr,

The ponies which are to be used on tho

Scotland, and to have cost $1,000. Mrs.
George Knight Is to manage these steads, and
to keep them from careering into the orahes

Miss Myra Goodwin has abandoned " one.
night stands " this season, and declines to
play at any insignificant town. One-night
stands have long oeen regarded as the bane
of the theatrical profession. It Is said that an
actor who goes through a season of one-night
stands comes out comparatively spoiled. He
is obliged to adopt a ranting style, without
whioh ne could not be tolerated by these
country audiences: he is obliged to interrupt
himself and the play to make way for tbe
lusty applause, and all this tends towards de
terioration. Sig. Italo Campanlnl is with us again, and
he received a hearty welcome yesterday from
his friends when La Champagne arrived.
Sig. Campanlnl has a comprehensive com

Tony Hart's friends are wondering what is
tho matter with him. The onoe glib,
tongued, merry comedian is strangely
changed, and no one seems to know when
the change began, Mr. Hart speaks with
difficulty and only manages to articulate with
a most painful drawl. Added to this he
stammers somewhat. Mr. Hart entered the
office of a theatrical manager yesterday and
asked for Mr. Golden's address in such a

at my door, I opened it, and Dtfja stood
there. She whispered softly, " Is Monsieur
Charles here t" and upon my replying in the
negative, she stepped noiselessly over the
threshold. She wore a crimson silk morning
own trimmed with laoo. Her hair had hot.
louse roses in it, worth four francs aploce.
I noticed also for the first time a small soli
taire diamond on her finger. She sat down,
with a seeming embarrasment. which I at
tributed to tbe fact that it was tho first time
she had ever been alone with mo.
" You look gay to-night, Mile. Dlja," 1 said,
to break the silence.
" Oh, do you think so ?" she cried, with a
flashing of happy light into her eyes. " Tell
me, monsieur I Tell me tbe truth 1 Am I
very ugly ?"
" What a question 1" I exclaimed, amused
in spite of myself at her earnestness. " You
are certainly anything but ill-looking."
" Oh, thank you!" she cried, In extrava
gant joy. "-You are so good, monsieur, to
say that) If I thought my faco was ugly, I
should not wish to live."
She went and stood before a long mirror,
and turned her head to tbe right and to the
left, looking at tho refieotion from all possi.
ble points of view. The full, rich color
which came into her cheeks made her grow
"You did not call upon me this hour to
ask that question, Mademoiselle," I said, be

THE KIT-KATS' NEW IDEAS.
UepradnclnaT Foaea front tbe Old Blasters and
Drlnalns; Natnro ta Town.
The Kit-Kat Club has introduced two now
ideas into the system of work for the coming
winter. By one idea the posing of mlscel.
laneoua models iust as the fanoy seoms to
strike the Committee on Modols is practically
abolished. As a substitute the members of
the club now work from a model posed after
tho most succoaaful poses of the old masters.
Steel-engraved copies of the old master
pieces are kept as works of reference in the
club's library. When the principal points of
a pioture are to bo reproduced the model is
posed to resomble, as far as possible, one fig.
tire In the picture. When this figure is done
the pose Is changed to some other plcturo.
In this way tho members of the Kit-Kat Club
will in time become familiar with most of the
figures of the best painters.
The other new idea is the Introduction of
nature itself into the studio. During tho
winter time the artists cannot go to the coun
try, bo they bring the country to town. The
Exeoutive Committee Is now busy setting up
in the olub-rooms speolmens of vines, leaves,
ferns and branches of trees. This week a
load of pumpkins, cornstalks, apples and
other farm products will bo received from
the country. The presence of these things
in the olub-rooms will obviate to some ex
tent the neoesslty of tha artists going to tho
park or to the country.
The season promises to be an interesting
one for the KIt-Kots. Most of them are do.
ing good work, and are rapidly comlngta
ooming to public notioe In their art. Tha
officers of tho olub are as follows t President,
Lafayette W. Seaveyt VIoe-President, F. G.

cities of the country, but their lists of stooks
are comparatively small, and tho volumo of
their speculative dealings correspondingly
limited, as compared with those of the Hew
Within the past fow years the demand for
speculative trading facilities, not only in the
larco cities, oui in many or we ajnauor onus,
both in tho United States and Canada, has
been mot in a manner that enables the peo-
Sle in these interior cities to trade in stooks
enlt in at the New York Stock Exchange,
and at New York figures. This Is done by
the establishment of branch " bucket-shops"
in all these different cities, whioh are in pri.
vate teleeraphio communication with the
central office in New York, whence they are
directly supplied with the Now York quota,
As a rule these places are patronized muoh
more extensively than the regular Stook Ex.
changes, and as they are usually fitted up in
an attractive, not to say gorgeous, style, they
have a much more aristocratlo air than the
ordinary bucket-shop. As a matter of faot,
thoy are not commonly known by this oppro
brious title, but aro held out as branch of.
vces of some New York stock brokerage firm,
and those who gamble in them are regarded
as the customers of the firm. Their trans
actions are called contracts the same as if
they were dealing with a legitimate member
of tho Stock Exchange here, and although no
stook is ever really bought on sale or deliv
ered on those contracts, which are merely in
the nature of registered lists, the same as in
an ordinary bucket-shop, they are usually
run by people who have some capital baok of
them, and it is regarded aa comparatively
safe to trade with them so far as the ability
to collect possible profits is concerned.
It requires considerable capital to run a
system of offices of this description, for some
of these firms or companies maintain as
many as a score of branohts in different parts
of the country. They are to be found In
almost all the cities in the interior of the
State, throughout New England and in
Canada, and it was only a day or two ago that
it was reported that two gorgeous palaces of
this kind had Just been opened in Montreal.
Except that it Is not so common for the
proprietors of these places to "lay down"
on their oontracts, at in the case of an ordl.
nary snap bucket-shop, tho methods of deal,
ing are almost Identical, and are Just as
unfavorable for the speculator.
There are several of these companies in
New York which maintain out-of-town
branches and they are in hot water nearly
all the timo oh aooount of tha opposition
whioh they meet everywhere from the legal
authorities. It frequently happens that when
a customer has been wiped out after putting
up a big margin, ha will take advantage of
tho law and sue the company for the amount
of his losses, pleading the Gambling Act, and
showing that there .was no legal contract.
In addition to stock, quotations these com.
panics usually furnish to their branch
offices the prioes of wheat, oorn, petroleum
and ootton. but the speculative dealings in
tbeso commodities are not as extensive as in
the case of stooks.
