Newcastle, Pa. May 19. George
Gardner of Lowell, Mass., who for

championship, was stopped in the
seventh of what was to have been a
12-round bout here last night, Tony
Ross of this city showering blows on
the weakened Lowell man till the po
lice saved him, declaring Gardner all

left to jaw, flooring Gardner. Ross
pounded Gardner . about the ring in

strength. . In the fourth, after much
infighting, Ross- landed heavily several
times in the stomach, visibly weaken

plainly. Gardner was staggering un
guarded early in tire seventh, under a

At the Majestic. The principal star
at the Majestic theater, Chicago for
the week of May 25 is Delia Fox, one
of the ' most famous of all the comic
opera singers, who has been associ
ated with De Wolf Hopper and others
in some or the greatest productions
this country has ever seen.' Having
entered upon stage work when she
was scarcely more than a child Delia
Fox Is still in her prime and is prov
ing throughout the country to be oni
of the most attractive stars now in
vaudeville. Possessing -- undoubted
magnetism and a charm of manner
which is quite rare she succeeds in
vaudeville as she did in opera in car
rying an audience along with her, and
very few of those who have become
famous during recent years can com
pare with her in- the certainty of
method or the' attractive features
which win success on the. stage. Clay
ton White and Marie Stuart, who are
known as the most versatile farceurs
in .vaudeville, will appear in their
wonderful bright and amusing one act
play entitled "Cherrie." Although
compressed Into 20 minutes this is a
complete and "well rounded farce comedy-
lacking only the padding and ver
biage which would transform- it Into
a better three-act comedy than is com
monly seen tm.'the dramatic stage.
Both of these " people have demon
strated unusual ability ; In the art of
entertaining general audiences and it
is generally - conceded that their act
alone is well worth the price of ad
mission. The Colonial Septet," a big
end . beautiful musical act involving
feeven artists. Is conceded to be one
tot the strongest and most artistic
seta of the kind now upon the stage.
Jt is exceedingly refined, and not only
the music but the scenic atmosphere
of the act commands admiration. The
Bisters Macarte offer, a veryexpert

Canton, Ohio, May 19. Clarence
Forbes of Chicago put out Art Simms
of Akron in four rounds last night at
the Grand, the police supervising the

withdrew him at the end of the fourth.
Frank McGuire, Massilon, and "Kid"
La master, Akron, went three fast
rounds, each being sent to the floor.
Bernie Strapp, Akron, and Tommy
Kennedy, Buffalo, went four playful
rounds, warned from real blows by
tinct novelty, the act being one which
adds a new note to the ordinary regis
ter of vaudeville. La Slyphe is a
graceful dancer quite justifying her
rame by her terpsichorean exploits,
while Raymond and Caverly, the fun
ny men, , may be depended upon for
an interlude of up-to-date -. humor.
Prelle's dogs in a novelty act quite
away from the ordinary, form another
interesting feature cf a bill which
also includes many other specialties.
