1 him up to that time, as ho jabbed him with
the left, and he hadn't then learned
how to " stop " well. Dempsoy has
i long since grown out of Dacoy'sclass.and the
light-weight deserves credit for courage in
facing the Honparoil. Dempsey played with
him for three rounds and Dacey seemed to be
getting a shado tho best of it, but when
Mitoholl's dread cut looso in tho final round
it was as if Maud S. and Western Belle trot
ted a match evenly to tho three-quarters and
then the matchless queen camo home as sho
liked, with Johnny Murphy looking back in
in his seat. Another spectator likened the
bout to the races between George and Myers.
Myers trotted along easily behind Qeorgo
until tho last lap, then passed him as if he
were standing still and burst the tapo with
his hands down.
Boating upon the Harlem has run to canoes,
sailboats and barges with tho close of tho re

be rowed, the one-mile sculling handicap for
the Osborne medal, open to all members of
the New York Athletio Olub, which takes
placo on Oct. 22.
There are two kinds of really good boxing
cloves. Both sorts aro made with the best of
sheepskin and it is universally called kid.
Boston boxers aro partial to old Bill Busbee's
gloves, while Now York and Philadelphia
sparrers prefer Fields's. The last-named glove
is made with what is called extended finger
tips and afford a first-class chance to grip the
hand. An effort was made to get Hullhau
to use a clove with tho long finger-tip,
but ho still prefers the variety he got
his first practice with around Boston.
Old Jem Ward, who died a year ago, aged
eighty-four, for years champion of England,
would never use any but finger-tip mittens,
and thoyare sometimes called tho Jem Ward
glove.' Billy Edwards and Arthur Ghambors
are just os strong advocates of the Field
sparring implements. Miko Donovan, teacher
of the New York Athletic Club, and Trofs.
Austin and Van Slyoke instruct only with
the Now York gloves. Most of tho gloves
used in sparring nowadays are too bin all and

While Champion Pole -Vaulter Baxter
walked to the dressing rooms of the Mott Ha
ven grounds after breaking tho wonderful
English Vaulter Ray's record at the New York
Athletio Club's medal games on Saturday
afternoon, ho told The Evening; Would man
his opinion of tho British champion. " He's
a wonder, no doubt," he said, "and I have
not the slightest intention of disparaging
him, but I don't admire his Mapping It
seems to me more like an acrobatic feat
than a fair trial of speed and strength. No,
I don't have any idea of imitating Barry's
method. Borne of tho 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
better than 13 feet If there is a good wind
blowing whon he is trying."
Easy foot wear has come into fashion of
late years." Timo was when a man who woro
low-heeled, broad-soled shoes was looked at
. as a clumsy chop with big feet. The best
and most comfortable shoes for walking, or
even for standing behind a counter in, are
the "seamed-down- the-eatire-centre-ln-f rout
shoes of the professional and amateur ath
letes. Ordinary shoes have a soam running
around over the instep. This is a most im.
portent part of the foot to bo left
free. At every stop we take tho
long tendonB on the upper part of
the foot raise. If they aro confined
by this seam running around instead of
parallel with them they cannot do their work
long at a timo without becoming very tired
or sore. A well-flttlng pair of walking, shoes
of the kind with the seam down thtf front
will wear longer and can be made of heavier
leather, yet weigh no more than the regular
"store" variety. As an encouragement to
plenty of walking, and consequently robust
health, an easy, well-fltting shoe is indispen
sable. To secure an easy foot havo tho shoe,
maker measure your foot while you are
standing. Have half a dozen pairs of shoes
in use and wear a different pair each day.

trio views he may have hold on the subjects
of politics, religion or government so long
as he furnished thorn wiUi those things thst
are appreciated by ovory youthful mind, and
wltn them ho was a favorite who had no rival.
A proof of this is tho fact that for many
days after his departure for Chicago they col
lected at tho regular hour about tho familiar
penon in thosquaro where he wasaocustomod
to meet and entertain them with the capacious
pockets of his coot overflowing with sweets
and goodios, and refused to believe that ho
had deserted them for good.
After continued waiting and disappoint
ment, however, they were forced to Relievo
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 tho past, and that they
would have to depend for the future for re
freshment of this kind upon tho sporadio
coin that they could sucoeed iu collecting
from their parents and relatives. The pros
pect was opparently so dismal that some of
them who obtained tho address of Citizen
Train ahd woro able to write sont letters to
h,ftU of Psthotio pleadings, telling him
that life was a blank, devoid of pleasure with
out him. assuring him of their continued
lpvo for him and begging him to return to
them without delay.
According to latest accounts, howovor,
Citizen Train is so busily ongaged in boom
ing the causo of sooial revolution and making
the blood of the good people of Chicago and
the West turn cold with his terrible maledio
tionB against tho present social system and
his diabolical suggestions as to what his An
archist legions aro going to do when they got
hold of affairs that he has found no timo to
reply to these appeals of his little friends in
New York, who still continue to haunt the
square in the hope that one day hp will sud.
denly make his reappearance and bring baok
joy and gladness to thoir hearts.
It is tho popular belief among tho ohfldren,
who formerly comprised Citizen Train's en
tiro social circle, that the good man has boon
enticed away from them by unfair means,
and the story of some malicious person that
the superior attractiveness of tho boys and
girls of the Western oity haB a good deal to
do with his prolonged absence has made
them wildly jealous of their supposed rivals
n the West.
"I don't believo," said one little tot, with
f? 6,T 8', conation. " that Mr. Train thinks
the ohildron of Chicago are any nicer than
we, for ho often used to tell us 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 truo."
Another little girl informed tho reporter

would como back to New York, and expected
that her prayers would be answerod before

Basg fishing has tho most votaries among
the piscatorially inclined. It Is a high-toned
kind of fishing, and if a man can land a throo
or four pounder he is happy. Tho nlneteon
ppund bass, nearly three feet long, caught at
Hell Gate a week ago Is the despair of all tho
fishermen. A boss doesn't often start out
with tho inborn oonviotion that ho is a whalo
and grow aooordingly.
The bst bait for striped bass is blood
worms and sand worms. The tough fringe on
a soft shell clam will fetch him, too. Bass
average about a pound and a half to two
pounds, and a fisherman is quite willing to
show his bosket if he captures fif toen or six
teen of theso;
Weakflsh are found In the same localities
in which the bass are caught, but in deeper
water. The bass love the shoaler places and
feel most comfortable in three or four feet of
water. They feed on tho meadow grass,
while the weakflsh sourries about for his
sustenance among tho oyster beds.
Flounder fishing is good at Jamaica Bay
and Rookaway. Along the shores of Long

ingenuous supers, more or less clumsily clad
in skins, would have represented the Torpsl.
chorion beasts, but we'vo ohongod all that
now. The management aro unwilling to
entrust such realistio work to supers. They
have Buggosted tho advisability of introducing
trained animals, and have been disouBsiug that
idea very sxtenslvely. Now, In case real anl.
mals bo introduced, they will clash very pain
fully with the human msmbtrs of the cast.
The actors and actresses insist upon having
their dressing-rooms on the stage in conse
quence of tho many ohanges the play requires
them to make. The animals will need theso
rooms for obvious reasons, and that is why
the actors and actresses strenuously object
to this saorifica to realism. This difficulty
has caused a hitch in the arrangements and a
temporary stoppage of work. It will proba
bly be overcomo during tho ensuing weok.
The Bijou Opera-Houso has not boon lucky
since last May, when Honry E. Dlxey as.
sumed a portion of the management of tho
house. The ensuing season is felt to depend
almost entirely upon the production of
" Conrad the Corsair " to-morrow night. A
number of out-of-town managers are coming
to New York to witnosa its production.
An offer has boon reoolved by cable from
W. W. Kelly, manager of tho Prinoess's
Theatre, London, for " Edltha's Burglar,"
whioh the London manager is anxious to give
at his house in oonneotton with Miss Grace
Hawthorne's performances, which are shortly
to take place thero. In the event of this
arrangement being mado.the American child,
known as little Oelie, who will bo rcmom

at the Lyceum Theatre by little Miss Leslie.
Hiohard Golden and M. A. Kennedy are to
follow the example of Robson and Crane
and Evans and Hoey. and be starred through
the country as comedians of equal merit, un
der the management of W. W. ltandall. They
aro to appear in a faroe-comody entitled
"The Fourth of July," writtsn by 0. A.

to keep them from careering Into the orches
tra. They will be attaohed to a phaeton in
whioh Mrs. Knight will be seated, and the
turn-out will be in keeping with liotten
Bow's latest edict,
Harry Paulton, who is known as tho wri

the oast of "Dorothy," the production of
which at the Standard Theatre is to succeed
"The Arabian Nights." "Dorothy" will
probably be given on Oct. 81, in case " The
Arabian Nights" can be sent on the road by
that time, Biohard Golden will then play
the part of Ohou-Ohou and William Gill,
who is responsible for "ly Sweetheart,"
will play the Policeman.
Miss Myra Goodwin has abandoned " one

of the theatrical profession. It is said that an

which no could not be tolerated by these

THE K1T-KAT6" NEW IDEAB.
Reproducing Poiea from the Old Master and
Drlncloa Nature to Towa.
Tho Kit-Kat Olub has Introduced two now
ideas Into the system of work for the coming
winter. By one idea tho posing of miscel
laneous models lust as the fauoy seoms to
strike the Committee on Models is practically
abolished. As a substitute the members of
the olub now work from a model posed after
tho most successful poses of the old masters.
Steel-engraved copies of the old master,
pieces are kept as works of referonce In the
club's library. When the principal points of
a picture are to be reproduced the model is
posed to resemble, as far as pocslblo, one fig.
ure in the picture. When this figure is dona
the pose is changed to some other picture
In this way tha members of the Kit-Kat Club
will In time beoome familiar with most of the
figures of the best painters.
The other new idea is tho introduction of
nature itself into the studio. During the
winter time tho artists cannot go to the conn
try, bo they bring the oountry to town. Tho
Executive Committee is now busy setting up
in the olub.rooms specimens of vines, leaves,
ferns and branehes of trees. This week n
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 obvlata to soma ex

park or to the country.

Within the put few years the demand for
speculative trading facilities, not only in ths
argo cities, out in many or tne amauer ones,
oth iu tho United States and Canada, has
been mot lu a manner that enables ths peo
plo In these interior cities to trade in stocks
ilenlt in at the New York Stook Exchange,
and at New York figures. This is dons by
the establishment of branch "buoket-shops"
in all these different cities, which are in pri.
vato teleeraphio communication with the
central oftloe In New York, whence they are
directly supplied with the New York quota
tions. As a rule these places are patronised much
mora extensively than tha regular Stock Ex
changes, and as they are usually fitted up in
an attractive, not to say gorgeous, style, they
have a much more arlstooratio air than tho
ordinary buokoUshop. As a matter of fact,
they are not commonly known by this oppro
brious title, but are held out as branch of
fices of some New York stock brokerage firm,
and those who gamble In them are regarded
an the oustomers of the firm. Their trans
actions are called contracts the same as If
they were dealing with a legitimate member
of the Stook Exchange here, and although no
stock is ever really bought on sale or deliv
ered on those contracts, whloh are merely in
the nature of registered lists, the same as in
an ordinary buoket-shop, they are usually
run by people who have some capital baok of
them, and ft is regarded as comparatively
safe to trade with them so far as the ability
to collect possible profits is oonoemed.
It requires considerable capital to run a
system of offices of this description, for soma
of these firms or companies maintain as
many as a score of branches In different parts
of the country. They aro to be found in
almost all the cities in tha interior of ths
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 bean opened in Montreal.
Except that it is not so common for the
proprietors of these places to "lay down"
on their contracts, as in the case of an ordi
nary snap bucket-shop, tha methods of deal
ing are almost identical, and are just as
unfavorable for tha speculator.
Thero aro several of these oompanlssin
New York whloh maintain out-of-town
branches and thsy are In hot water nearly
all the Umo on account of the opposition
whloh they meet everywhere from the legal
authorities. It frequently happens that when
a customer has been wiped out after putting
up a big margin, he will take advantage of
the law and sua the company for the amount
of his loises, pleading the Gambling Act, and
showing that there was no legal contract.
In addition to stook notations these com
panies usually furnish to their branch
offices the prloes of wheat, corn, petroleum
and ootton, but the speculative dealings in
these commodities are not as extensive as In
tha caso of stocks.
ABOUT THE CITY'S CUARDIANS.
Inspector Williams owns a fast catboat and
is ready to race against any officer on tho
force at any dlstanoe.
Ex-Judge Gunning 8. Bedford is a frequent
visitor at Police Headquarters and tolls won
derful stories of his electioneering suocess.
Col. Emmons Clark, of the Health Board,

Ex-Alderman Mosterson is conspicuous as
one of the very few civilian clerks who aro
employed in tho Polios Department at Head
quarters. Mr. Hopcroft, tho private secretary of

" Happy Gi ge." He is a bard worker and
nover loses his temper.
Sheriff Grant drops in at Police Headquar
ters froquently and nas a pleasant social chat
with his personal friend, Supt. Murray not
about politics, of course.
President Frenoh and McfCord, tho ward
leaders, aro inseparable friends. Tho burden
of their private conferences is how host to
serve tho Bspubllcan party.
Police Commissioner McClavo is very fond
of hone flesh and rarely misses race day at
Jerome Park. He handles tho ribbons bo
hind a valuable bay trotter.
Everything points to a general shake-up
among police captains. Tony Allaire is sigh
ing for pastures new, and may find suburban
air vory conducive to good health.
Gossips at Pollco Headquarters assert, with
a significant toss of tho bead, that Cant.

Her voice was rising as she proceeded. I
began to fear that she would disturb the
house and porhaps bring Trenholm, himself,
to the room. I therefore told her that she
must bo calm and go at once to her pbumbor.
I said that with Englishmen a ring might
moan a great deal or nothing, and that I had
no means of knowing what as in the mind
of my friend when he bought this particular
article. She grew quiet immediately, and
we talked in low tone for a few minutes. She
stated with the utmost frankness that he had
never offered even to kUs her, nor shown his
affection in any v,ay which could not be con
strued into mere good-nature and generosity.
When she left, there were tears on her cheeks,
the first and lost I ever saw thero.
I meant to speak to Trenholm about this
I did, indeed 1 I suspect he penetrated my
design, as he never seemed to give me juts
the right opportunity. But in bis heart he
must have known all that I could have told
him. No man certainly not Charlie Tien,

love go unobserved.
