REO CLUB JAMS FERN HALL.
Greatest and Most Exciting Scenes Ever Witnessed at Five Points— Page and At Rivers Tickled Over Great Triumph—Scottie Williams, Kid Dinge and Kid Bell Victors. Whether a smoker given by the 1 Reo Club, an exclusive residential club at Five Points, would be a suc cess or not was the perplexing ques tion to be solved by Page and A1 Rivers, the pleasing promoters. To their credit it can be truly said that Five Points was thoroughly awakened by the boxing event. Men who had never witnessed a prize boxing con test before, crowded into the hall., Women led on by the curiosity of see ing how a contest was conducted, what and how things looked and were done, were there in goodly numbers and furnished much enthusiasm and spirit throughout the contest. The boxing headquarters were at the Reo Club and consisted of reading and writing rooms, private dining and leisure rooms with a small cafe kit chen in the rear. Even this inviting place was alive with boxing fans, each expressing his opinion of the outcome of the fight. And shortly after 9 p. m. the exhibition of clever boxing be tween Scottie Williams, Denver’s clever and champion welterweight, and Young Pebo of New York City. This event merely went to demon strate the skillfullness and agility used in the ring. The large crowd began to grow impatient for more ex citing doings” and then came the Dinge Brown contest. Promoter Al. Rivers announced the participants and a large round of applause greeted him as he spoke of the Reo Club and its prospective bouts.

Kid Dinge and Brown began the mill with favors slightly in favor of Brown. It took but a few seconds to change the sen timent. Brown led off with a stiff right swing. Dinge blocked. Brown feinted with left and swung right up percut to stomach. Dinge defends gracefully. The crowd begins to cheer Dinge because of his coolness and perfect ease and clever defense.

Brown gets in two good blows just as round closes. * In the second and third rounds Brown and Dinge mix fiercely. Severe blows r are given and taken with Dinge bring ’ ing the crimson from Brown’s nose and mouth. Everything is Dinge now, the eager crowd is on its feet yelling, » excitement is at fever heat, bets are j readily exchanged while the men are . resting for the next round. Brown’s . punishment is beginning to tell on him. Dinge, confident at his success. , takes the aggressive. In the. fourth and fifth rounds the battle is fierce and Brown is receiving a terrible beating but is game to the core. Dinge takes many hard blows to deaden Brown, who is weakening, and with left jab in the stomach, Dinge knocks Brown off of his feet and Brown falls on his back wiggling, trying to get up, while the count is on. and cannot rise. Dinge was carried from the ring as winner. Battle Royal. Five Five Points bantams entered the ring and the odds were on the “big’’ boy. The gong sounded and all the “little” boys went for the big boy hammer and tongs and finaly three were pushed out. or knocked out, and one walked out of the ring and the battle royal was declared a draw’. Kid Bell Vs. Pie Davis. This bout was a sort of a disap pointment to the fight fans as there was very little fighting and that was mostly forced on by Bell. In the first round Bell, who had previously knock ed out and won another decision over Pie Davis, started the fight with Pie ' Davis crouching and covering his face i and body. Bell forced the fighting in ! every round and while he tried in the third and fourth rounds to knock out j Davis, he could not. But to Davis’ ! credit, in the third round he, with a terrible left swing, caught Bell and knocked him down about three feet distance. Davis rooters went wild, i Bell closed in and was more careful. but Davis never took the offensive but I stood and always covered. Now and j then he would strike back. Bell was; given the decision upon the ground that he led the fight all the way through. If Bell had acted like Pie Davis, who never took the offensive, the men would have been looking at each other yet. Bell tried to force the fight but Pie was evidently afraid to mix with Bell. The Reo Club went after the peo ple. reached them and they respond ed in large number. Never has so much enthusiasm and spirit been cre ated by the Reo Club. Everybody is talking about the successful event and praising Al. Rivers for his nerve in attempting to find pleasure for the Five Points sport enthusiasts. The Reo Club is the' attractive point in Five Points. Mr. Rivers announced that he wij| pull another big event off in the near future. Watch for an nouncement. MIZPAH ART CLUB MAKES GRAND SUCCESS. The Presentation of the McDaniel Sla ters Complete—Miss Dietta Wil liams Makes “Hit”—Five Hundred People Present. Never has any club produced such a constant, uninterrupted series of hearty laughter, pleasant ebullitions of joy and pleasure in such a ludri crous manner as did the Mi/.pah Art Club last Tuesday night at Fern hall. The hall was crowded by the city club ladies and their friends. Every club in the city had its representa tive there to assist and encourage the young club of this city to get its dele gates’ fare to the State Federation. But the female minstrel alone, exclu sive of the worthy object which c aused the entertainment, was enough to pay over and over again the price of admission. As minor characters Mrs. Herman Fields sweetly sang the song "Last Night Was the End of the World,” while a great ovation was visited upon Miss Etta McDaniel-Goff when she sang Mr. Paul Caldwell’s latest composition, "Love Is the Ten derest Flower.” In the afterpiece, ‘Stepchildren.” the maid, Mrs. A. Rice, Mrs. Herman Fields, as step mother; Mrs. Adrian Mackey, Mrs. Robert Robinson. Mr. Jasper Splivens, Misses Jessie Ford, Dietta Williams and McDaniels, as assistants, deserve more than passing mention. The re curring laughing scenes of the min strel from the opening to the close were replete with clean, witty jokes, filled with funny suggestions, so ludri crously delivered. Mrs. Hattie Me- Daniel-Hick man act’d as a veteran of the burn stagedom. She knew how to dress, act and say things to keep the house in a complete uproar of laughter all the time. "Don't Toot,” "The Bald Head Moon” and her song of "San Francisco Bound,” and her graceful and artistic tango with her brilliant trimmings plunged the large audience into the deepest and heart iest laughter. Imagine a person with cactus hair, each hair sticking out independently to itself, fix in your mind a disfigured, clumsy, blackened 200-pound woman whose color was a deeper black than ten midnights without a sun, then ob serve a misfit dress whose colors were those of the rainbow with the tango bloomer* made of white sheeting, which effect completely harmonized with her big awkward feet full of corns. When she batted her eyes it looked as if two white marbles were placed in a bucket of soot and when she opened her mouth it looked like the bottomless pit. Such was the role played by the comedian, Mrs. Hattie Hickman. Her very appearance as she stared at you would cause you “to crack your sides laughing.” And then her funny manner of delivery, assist ed by her partner, Miss Dietta Wil liams, made a sight never to be for gotten. In the quarrel and the love scene the following expressions were coined by the comedians: “Marsh mellow' ping pong with candied peaches. Midnight brunette with the gummy-fuggy smile,” “smokestack blonde with the tango and chocolate yum yum ears,” "sweet dreams with the banana nose” and an “ice cream Sunday with a oocby-coochy goo goos.” ‘Don’t Toot." The female minstrels made an exceptional good effort to please and were successful in every degree and the Mizpah Art Club should feel proud of its success in every way. Don’t toot.
