Billy Cation has arranged for the re
ports of each inning of the great game of
billiards which takes place in New York
tonight. Tbe detailed reports will be
received at Catton & O'Connor's Club
sample rooms on E'ghteenth street.
Jacob Schafer in speaking to a Chicago
reporter tbe other day about tbe opening
of the Club sample room here not long
since in which his friend Billy Catton is
interested, after referring to the success
of the opening, said:
''It all reminds me of the letter I once
received from a man down in Indiana
who bad a 3-table room in a town of
5,000 inhabitants. "Dear sir,' it said, 'I
wishtohaye a billiard xhibi'.ion. with
the view of educating try natrons up to
a high plane of billiards and to correct
the ideas of the old fogies, who sit and
talk all day lone of how Michael
Phelan once ran nine at the Freoch
8 ball game. Now, could you and
Slossoa . come? I assure you, my
dear 6ir, that you wilt be given
a royal greeting, and the boys will have
lots of fun (we are only six hours from
Chicago ani they switch o2 the caboose
of No. 7 freight at this pVint). for among
my patrons will be found citiz3ns up to
any game from handling a game cock (Z
inch gaff) to an exhibition with a jimmy.
Come oti, Jake, (1 use y. ur pet name be
cause everybrdy else does, although I
have seen you only in photographs, and
let the preliminary hours he between Ives
and Carter, Sexton and Dly, and such
other billiard talent as can on such short
notice be procured."
Eugene Burns, of the C, R I. & P.
freight office, has been confined to his
home the past few dajs with the grip.
It is understood that the C, R I. & P.
intend making some radical changes in
their yards her 1 in the spring which will
include tbe grading up of several tracks
and a rearrangement of the present yards.

"He is a brirk." Plutarch, in his "life" of

Sparta, who saw much to :i'!i.iire ami

Sparta whs not a walled town, aud askw
the explanation of its luck of offensive
works. No answer was reuirrn-d tbat day.
Early the next morning, however for
the Spartans roseatdawn the Epirote was
awakened and conducted to the field rf ex

Sparta was drawn up in battle array.
