Fort Wayne, Ind., Oct. 24. Packey
McFarland of Chicago won- the-deci
:ion over Kid Goodman of Boston last
light after 10 rounds of hot fighting
lad the bout lasted a couple of 'more
omuls the stock yards boy of Chicago
.vould have been .able to accomplish
vhat no one else has done, knock
joodman out. At the end of the 10
ounds Goodman was in bad shape.
ind it is hardly .likely that he could
iave continued much farther.
However, the Boston fighter put up
'.ard, game contest and made Packey
tustle all the way to win. McFarland
was too clever for the little Easterner
though and administered much ; pun
shnient during the 10 rounds the fight
asted. He used his right hand as li
tie as possible for he did not want to
ake any chances on having it injured
again, and thus spoil what chances he
had for a big battle with Kid Herman
n the near future.

Goodman made a big play to try to
wear McFarland down with body
punches and was rushing continually,
out McFarland managed to evade al'
he little fellow's hardest punches and
etaliated witli stinging force on Good
man's head and -'face.
McFarland greatly added to his rep-
itation in this part of the country by
his battle. -Already a favorite becauj
of his knockout of Benny Yanger, lie
)ccanie a public idol on the strength
of his clever battle last night.

of Gordon & Eerinett's production (if
A Royal Slave." The -play, whic.i
deals with life in Old Mexico, at the
most romantic time in its history, din

love story of interest.
Hailed as New Star. One of the
new stars this season will be Miss
Mabel McCane, who makes her stellai
debut iu a new music play by Harry
Sheldon White and music by P. Swen
ingson, the well known writer. The
role essayed by Miss McCane is one
of more seriousness than she has ever
done and there are times when the
emotional prevails. Something un
usual for a prima donna to attempr.
Her supporting company is a very
carefully selected one and the chorus
the season's real big novelty. This
production is replete with scenery and
electrical effects while the costumes
are the most appropriate and gorgeous
ever given a musical attraction. Theri

This play had the remarkable run of
iver seven months at the Garrick the
iter fn New York last year and it was
he notable comedy hit of the season.
Its clean, wholesome fun was especial

MISS MARIE CLARK,
In "A Royaj- Slave" at the Illinois
start to finish there is not an unclean
ne"; the Press: " 'Caught in the
Rain' is a cloudburst of laughter. It
is actors like Collier that are needed
n farce, but it is too much to hop
for more than one"; Alan Dale iiv
Ihe American: "Collier, the-very ab
lest comedian in America, never hap
pier than in this play." With snch
in usual endorsements it Is not o be
wondered that "Caught in the Rain"
ran the season through in New York
and that it will repeat its success in
Chicago is certain. The new play
gives Mr. Collier even greater oppor
tunities . than "The Dictator" or "On
the Quiet," in which he scored such
notable successes. The scenes of the
three acts of "Caught. in the Rain" are
laid in and about Denver. Dick Craw
ford, the character played by Mr. Col
lier, is, a youtis mining engineer who
thinks nothing of risking his life to
save an injured workman, but runs
away at the sight of a pretty girl.'
One day he is driven by. a terrific
storm under the shelter of a protectr
ing awning and there to his dismay
meets Muriel Mason, the prettiest girl
he has ever seen. The rain comes
down in torrents and it is u-al r::in
too and Crawford is obliged to re
main under the awning. It would not
'c to reveal too much of the plot,
which is full of surprises, but sunV-e

Muriel and at the very end of the play
he wins her hand. Although th com
edy is ever present '.n "Cm. g it in ma
