light-weight cham^jpji pugillit of the
world, came very Tmir loafag hi* tIHe
to-night at the Greater New York Athletic
Club in a twenty-round boat with
Frank Erne, of Buffalo. Erne proved a
tartar for the Saginaw boxer, who Is not
the Lavlgne of three year* ago fegr anr
mean*. Erne's wonderful Improvement
wan a surprirc to the Lavlgne people
who witnessed the fight.
He drew Lavlgne to him and sent
back a* good a* he got In many of the
round*, while In some of them he outpointed
the champion. It was generally
understood that a decision was to be
given on points and the statement made
at the end of the boat that both men
had agreed to call it a draw In case the
men were good and strong at tha end of
the twenty rounds, wis a source of
keen disappointment to a host of Erne's
friend*, who looked for a favorable verdict.
Erne deserve* the greatest praise
that can be bestowal on him for his
clever work and had the bout been decided
on points he certalnlr would have
trot the chstnplonship honors and tha
winner's slice of the 15.000 purse watch
the club hung up for the contest.
The men who Hid odds of three to one
on Lavigne looked sick toward the end
of the bout, particularly fn the last two
rounds, when Erne was getting the better
of his opponent and If the men were
to meet again even money would be the
ruling oddi>. Erne on his showing tonight
has the championship almost at
his mercy. Erna's principal second was
Kid McCoy. Jim Corbett. who was to
have seconded Lavigne.was unable to be
present, owing to injuries received from
Kid McCoy in their fight to-day In *

Mr. Gsrdiser Planned to Fool bis Wife, 1:
but the Scheme was Frustrated. *
GarJIner wishes he had left we!! j
enough alone. He Teallaes all too late ti
that a social reformer must not act too *
hastily. Up to a week ago there was no n
cloud on his domestic horizon. Sometimes
he did wish that Mrs. Gardiner
was not so successful In combining ar- B
dent attention to church duties with an
expensive taste In dress, but. after all.
tht^e are venial faults. Then his evil
fate threw him in with Dickenson*. n
The Gardlners are only recently mov- *
ed into Hyde Park. The Dickensons ,
were about their first friends them One p
evening Dicken?on descanted on the
times they had been having with what el
he called a "talking board." which, according
to him. was a board with the
letters of the alphabet on it, and which, f
in conjunction with a small, heart- B
shared piece of wood, mounted on three t<
legs, was supposed to spell out messages jj
from Julius Caesar and other departed ^
celebrities, the operator's fingers resting ?]
lightly on the small piece. A]
"Tell you what," said Gardiner, "let's
put up a Job on my wife. Some eve- ^
ning when we come around you put ti
your wife up to U, and let <hls board icet y
off some message from Mrs. Gardiner's &
grandmother, Eliza Harrington; don't r
forget the name." tc
What sort of manure7" osxea uick- n
enson. lr
"Oh." said Gardiner, "tell h*r that ber m
grandmother Is quit? pained by her ex- n
travagance. See! Then stick In some- a!
thins about church duties belns all
rlsht. but point out that men who work aJ
all week should be allowed to sleep lato w
Sundays ? you know the style of the a
thins." ?
Dickenson fell Into the plot readily ir
enough, but when he broached the sub- h
Ject to Mrs. Dickenson. she remarked. if
apropos of nothing In particular: Jt
"You men are allallk*." I<
"Well, my dear." said Dickenson, h
"there's no harm In It." o;
"St>. I suppose not." said Mrs. DIcken- tl
son, m^dnatively. "Well, I'll ?ee what t!
I can do." *1
A f*w evenings afterward the (lardl- Ji
n#?rs dropped In. and the talking boar.l ?
was produced. Mrs. Dickenson, with t'
one hand renting on the Indicator, prepared
for converse with the spook*.
T?* the Initial question. "Is there any v
spirit who wishes to "talk to anyone **
here?" the board answered "Yea." >v
"To whom does the spirit wish to H
peak?" solemnly demanded Mm. Dickenson.
ar.1 the board promptly spoiled
out "Amelia Gardiner." y
"Oh. William." said Mm. Gardiner. Jclutching
her husband, "did you tee J*
that?" William, striving to suppress a '2
Krtn. said he did.
"What is the spirit s name?" Inquired
Mrs. Dickenson, and the board spelled fl
out "Eliza Harrlnjr^n." while Gardiner u
winked at Dickenson In an excess of enjoyment.
"Did you know any one of that ?
name?" r.iVe! Mrs. Dickenson, turning ?
to Mrs. Gardiner. ?
"Why, yes." answered Mrs. Gardiner; ?
"It's Grandmother Harrington. Pieane, _
Mrs. Dickenson, ask her what she wants _
to my to me."
I'nder Mrs. Dickenson's careful tutor- f
hip the board opened oat: "I am tn?u- =
bird in my mind about William."
"How, (Jr.tml/iMmmn?" naked Mr*.
CJar lin-r, and th?* board rejoined: "He *"
m ?k"? too much."
"There, now. William, I'm a J way* telling
you that." broke in Mr?. Oardlner.
whll* the board continued until It had
pelted nut: "And he doenn'C go to
church often enough."

From James Payn's Literary Recol- |
actions: On one occasion In school w?*
ad come private theatricals, for. which
. great hall In the centre of the hou5e,
ppoached by a long passage foro the
rent door, afforded great facilities. One
f the play* was a dress piece, exbibltag
the court of Queen Elisabeth. It
rss my frivolous disposition, perhaps,
hat caused me to be selected as the
ourt jester. A dear friend of mine
since dead, alas! like moat of them)
layed Sir Walter Raleigh, and I well
erne ruber he took advantage of m>* beag
in a simple network garment to
rick my unprotected limbs with the
oint of his rapier.
It was on a snowy winter's night, and
he hall was crowded with a very large
udlence, whose servants. Including
hose of the house, were standing on
tie great staircase and in the galleries;
,nd Sir Walter oad I were In the long
assage aforesaid waiting to "come on,"
rhen there came a ring at the front
ioor. There was no one to answer it.
s we knew, except ourselves. But who.
t that time of night, two hours after
he performance had begun, could it
ossibly be?
"By Jove." whispered I. already- trembling
with (he sense of the absurdity of

Mr tutor. T knew, was expecting one
from Wales) about that date, but in
he hurry and bustle of the theatricals

'he bell rang again with Increased viotnce.
We opened the door, and there
tood a little roan, with a Bradshaw and
railway rug. just descended from a
now-covered fly. His gate wandered
rom the knight in his doublet and hose
y the fool in scarlet, and back again. In
peechless astonishment.
He had evidently a mind to turn and
lee. but fir Walter, with gentle vlosnce.
constrained him to enter.
We led hlnv ?long the passage, opened
he door of the great hall and pushed
im on to the stage. The applause was
eafening. The appearance of a modrn
railway traveler, with rug and
ulde. among the court of Elizabeth,
ras thought to be part of an exqulsKe
-urlesque. The queen wept tears of
loghter, the courtiers roared, not from
omplalsance, but necessity; the whole
ouse "rose** at the unexpected visitor.
