expected within a few days, though it
will take come little time to convaas
the members, who are scattered about
lere and there over the country.
What the attitude of the national
board will be there is nothing bo far
to indicate, though the view of Presi

be shared by a great many. Mr. Jus

Mrs. Marshall delivered the first of

The Marshall formula for plain and
fancy pastry will be demonstrated in

KID MTOV REVAMPKD.
Philadelphia, Pa., March 21. In
a dull and uninteresting fight that
bore all the earmarks of a fake. Kid
McCoy last night won the decision
over Jack Fitzgerald in a six round
go at the American Athletic club.
The last two to-jnds were very
tame, although McCoy landed the
most blows and displayed the greater
knowledge of ring generalship, but
did not come back to bis old form
at any stage of the bout. It was his
superior effort in the first rounds that
won hira the verdict of the spectators.
In the fifth round those seated at
the ringside heard Nick Hayes, man
ager of Fitzgerald, yell at McCoy,
