Monmouth college basketball team
met defeat last night at the hands of
Augustana, its old rival of former
years, to the tune of 34 to 15. It was a
frreat victory. Both teams put up a
gocd article of ball, but Augustana
easily 6howed its superiority and -well
doserved to win. Every man on the
team did his part.
This game was an event in Augus

OPEXS WITH A HrH.
The game was called a little after 8.
Both teams were heartily cheered as
they appeared on the floor.
For the first half Augustana had the
the south basket. With the blowing of
the referee's whistle the game started
out with a rush. Augustana scored
first, but Monmouth was not slow in
evening up matters. For five minutes
the teams played even, the advantage
being first with one team and then
with the other. Augustana then took
a brace and from that time on out
played Monmouth In every depart

leading Monmouth by 10 points, the
score being 17 to 7.
All through the second half Augus

no time did Monmouth even threaten
to pull away with the game. Although
Augustana kept increasing its lead
right along Monmouth still remained
in the fight and the play was fast all
the way. When the final whistle was
blown the score stood: Augustana, 34;

both astonishment and commendation.
By introducing an elaborate treatment
of Italian and Grecian marble, the foy

table, marble hall, with a grand stair-w-ay
of that material and all the wains
coting, door caps, arches and balus
trades hewn out of this expensive
material. The walls are covered with
a gold brocade shaded into olive as a
background for the splendid collection
of paintings by modern masters, which
is such an extraordinary feature of
this great establishment, and the new
ceiling in elaborate plastic work finish
ed solidly In dull gold .is thought to be
one of tha finest examples of this class
of work ever produced In this country.

Rich carpets and oriental rugs cover
the floor, and the genuine effect is be
lieved to be absolutely superior In
beauty and elegance to any theatre
decoration in America. While the dec

been thu6 greatly Improved, the stage
has been refitted with an entire new
equipment of beautiful scenery ap
propriate to the superior character of
the house, and the bookings for the
late winter and spring season are of
such value as to confirm the claim of the
theatre that it plays all the leading
stars of the world. Among the coming
stars are Nat Goodwin. Irene Franklin,
