There are very few entertainments of the corn na tional sort, and In fact, very little to re lieve the monotony of routine. Even af fairs of a religious or charitable nature are not give.; frequently, and the devotee Is puzzled to find anything of Interest for the hours which are usually given to so cial pleasure. As a matter of course the euchre and whist clubs are holding their usual meetings, and there have b* - n sever al Informal entertainments by the larg-T organizations, but these interest only a limited number, as the Invitation list, as a rule, includes only members and visit ors from a distance. The theatres have been exceptionally well patroniz* d. and the few local talent entertainments have attracted many patrons. The musically Inclined are looking forw*ard to several af fairs which promi.se to be notable suc cesses. ENTERTAINMENTS. She Is the newest kind of a New woman—big and grand.

ANOTHER SAD WARNING. Frank Dieringer Drowned In “Hack” River Ifesterday Morning—Other Narrow H I capes—Hoys Should He Kept Away from Thin lee l»v Some Means. Yesterday the young hoys of the city had another solemn and awful warning of the dangers attending skating upon | the rivers or creeks when the ice is too j thin. ; Every fall In the temperature suffi I cient to put an inch or an inch and a half of ice upon the “Back” river or creeks is followed by a rush of small boys with skates in their hands, and it is like trying to check an epidemic to attempt to convince them that there is a decided element of danger in the practice. _ The recent cool weather put a thin skim of ice upon the surface of “Back” river, and as usual there were any num ber of boys, mainly from the Island and Bridgeport, who insisted upon skating. Friday a boy broke through the ice and had a close call for his life. Yesterday morning two or three others went through, anil one of them, Frank Dieringer, a son of Henry Dieringer, the well known barber of Market anil South streets, who lives at No. Ill South Huron street, was drowned. Clarence Youse was one of two other boys who went through at about the same time, but both these latter youths got out after more or less trouble. The body of young Dieringer was re covered soon after the accident by a young man named Mahlke. and it was carried to the shore and Dr. Best sum mond, but although the lad had not been under water more than five or six minutes, all efforts to resuscitate him were futile.

Already the old ri valry between Dayton and Springfield, which in Tri-State league days was very hitter, has broken out. Bowling. The projected National Bowling League will probably be organized at a meeting to be held in Cincinnati on February 3d. The movement, which was started by R. M. Archer, of this city, appears to have met with favor among devotees of the game through out the country. It is likely that the meeting will be well represented, and that the objects for which it is called will be properly corried out. It is cer tain that six cities will be represented, with a possibility that there will be twelve or more. The plans upon which the League will be conducted will be formulated at that time. The Famous team maintained its rapid pace among the South Side c lubs, and has a good lead for first place. The work of the Harvests has been rather disappointing, and they are now in the four hole, while the Randy Boos have surprised all bowlerdom by crowding up to second place.

All the arrangementB have been com pleted for the annual Cycle Show, which will be held in New York City from February 6th to 13th. at the Grand Cen tral Palace. The number of exhibits will eclipse anything ever seen in this city, or in the world, for that matter. The demand for spaces has been greater than ever before, and the show’ ought to attract more people than were pres ent at the old shows, held at the Madi son Square Garden. The prizes won by A. A. Zimmerman, in the many years he was on the track, will be exhibited for the first time in a conspicuous place on the auditorium floor. The average visitors to the Cycle Shows at Chicago and New York will notice in the exhibits of wheels and accessories that the manufacturers have given this year much consideration and thought to the perfection of details. They have overcome many little rough points heretofore overlooked by the trade. The American wheel of to-day is far ahead of its Knglish cousin in perfection of detail and finish. Possi bly this is the reason that the American maker has been able to produce a light er, and at the same time as equally serviceable a bicycle as the foreign maker. Bungling chain adjustments have caused trouble to the rider and much profanity. The style of chain adjustment fitted to the higher priced Crescents is not only a great improve ment. but it adds materially to tho f.. ish of the rear fork ends.
