Stage Pat Up and Entertainments to He Given Tills Winter—Ritlemen at the Range—Movements of the lSotvl eru—Baseball, Trotters aui'l Sporting Notes. The Hudson County Wheelmen have pleasant quarters at the corner of Cres cent and Communipaw avenues. The rooms are cosy and have been put in the best possible shape. The ceilings have been frescoed or kalsomined and the walls, doors and window casings and the floor of the billiard room have been painted. They have five rooms and a commodious bath room on the second floor. The front and largest room is used as the billiard room. The parlor opens from this and it is separated from a larger room used as the reception room. A curtain separates the two looms and they can be thrown into one room if necessary. A pretty and bright Brussels carpet has been laid in these rooms. A room for the lockers can also be used as a kitchen. The lockers have been put in. There is a large range in the room. Rubber mats have been placed on the floor about the table in the billiard room to save the Daint and deaden the sound of the players' feet while walking around during the game. A comfortable room adjoins the billiard room. It will be fitted up as a card room. The furniture for the parlor, reception and card rooms will be delivered today and the wheelmen will have an informal house warming this evening. They will hold a reception when everything is in perfect order. The first floor has been transformed into one spacious room. A stage has been erected and the association intends giving a series of entertainments this winter—sociables, dramatic and minstrel. The vocoplione band is now rehearsing for the event. The seating capacity of the modest theatre is about two hundred. The building will be heated by a furnace in the cellar. The club's first picture has arrived. It is a gift of the Pennsylvania Bicycle Club, of Philadelphia. The picture is a large solar print handsomely framed, and is an enlarged eopv of a photograph of the bi cycle club and tlie Hudson County Wheelmen taken at Devon Inn on August IX, when the Hudson County Wheelmen took a two days' run and paid a visit to the "Pennsys," as the Quaker City boys call themselves. In the corner of the mat about the picture is a silken knot with the colors of the "Pennsys." The Hudson County Wheelmen are go ing to the Rockland County Fair, at Spring Valley, tomorrow. It is expected that fifty members will attend. Twenty five will participate in the games and will astonish the countrymen by their reck lessness "a-straddlin' that air wheel and goin' like the wind." Captain Day and r. Benedict are practising daily for the event and both are confident of breaking the record. The order for the start is from the Erie depot at α quarter past one tomorrow afternoon. A large number will leave however on the eighteen min utes past eight morning train and "do" the fair. The local wheelmen have been given the right of line in the lantern parade of the Atlanta Wheelmen at Newark on Thursday of next week.

C. Boys Whitewash the West Ends. The last game of the championship series in the New Jersey Amateur League took place on the Avenue A grounds, Ber gen Point, yesterday afternoon, between the N. J. Λ. C. nine and the West Ends, of Somerville. The game was the beet or the season, and the New Jerseys played without an error, bunching their hits, too, and proving effective at the bat at critical moments. Currle's delivery was puzzling to the visitors, and they secured but two hits off him. The West Ends presented such strong players as Bishop, formerly of the Brook lyn A. C., now playing with the Senators: Farrell, formerly of the Baltimore team ; Brooklyn Club; Cuff, formerly of the Jer sey City and New York clubs; AL Will iams (known as AI.

A Sweet Singer Who Just Sang Once and Died. , Or all the days that's in the week, I deirly lovo but one day, And that'll the day that comes betwixt A Saturday and Monday. It was an old, old song. But the voice that sang it wasn't old by any means. It was fresh and clear and sweet and strong. And it came ringing out from the dirty, foul-smelling alley, reminding one of a time when I heard a bird song come floating up from the dark hold of a ship. Down the street, as if he were in a great hurry to get somewhere, came Professor Halo, the man who taught the children of the rich people uptown how to sing. He looked tired and worried as if the harmony of the day had jangled all out of tune. AU at once he, too, heard the voice, and now it was singing: 'Tie then I dress up In my best, And walk out with my Sally; She Is tho darling of my heart, Ληα sne lives aown îzi our auey. The grave professor seemed suddenly to forget his hurry. He stopped stock still. "By jove! What a voice!" he ejacu lated, as the tone sank to a plaintive, vibrating minor that thrilled through the murky atmosphere like a burst of sunshine. And then he went in pursuit of the voice. In a two wheeled huckster's cart, which had been disabled and deserted, stood a little girl about 9 years old. She had on a red calico dress. It was pretty dirty, but apparently the little girl thought she was dressed up. She had washed her faco back as far as her ears, so that he could see that she was very pretty. Her skin was a clear olive. Her eyes were big and bright and brown. Her hair was almost the color of mahogany and hung in thick, tangled curls down below her waist. She wore no stockings, but on her feet was a pair of blue satin boots, with tassels at the top, and little pointed heels, such as the chorus girls in the opera wear. She was standing with her head thrown back, her little hands clasped tightly across her chest, singing with all her might. Around her were grouped about a dozen little gamins of the alley, who, if not appreciative listeners, were very enthusiastic ones. When the professor appeared the en tertainment stopped and the little singer looked as shy and as confused as if she had been caught doing something naughty. But the professor did not notice her confusion. He pushed his way right through the dirty, sticky little group and up to the side of the cart. "What is your name?" he asked eager ly, "and where do you live?" Shyly twisting her lingers into the folds of her red skirt, the little girl an swered, In a confused way: "My name is Alice Flynn, and I live down there," nodding her head toward a basement near. "Who taught you to sing?" "Nobody. I always knowed how," answered the little one, with a side look at her companions. "Whom do you live with?" was the pro fessor's next question. "Gran'ma," answered Alice. "Will you take mo to see your grand mother?" asked the professor, suddenly. Instead of answering him Alice looked at her audience and giggled. Professor Hale evidently knew how to gain his point, for, taking a silver coin from hie pocket, he said: "I'll give you this if you'll take rue to your grandmother. Will you go now?" "Oh, "won't I, just!" exclaimed Alice, and she scrambled over the wheel of the cart. "Come right this way." The professor gingerly picked his way down the dirty steps into the dingy cellar which Alice called home. Sitting in an old rocking chair, smoking a rank smelling pipe, was a very old woman. She was so nearly blind that she didn't notice at first that Alice had company. She heard the footsteps, and began: "I think it's time ye was a-gettin' home, you good-for-nothin' little trollop. An' if ye ain't brought the price o' a sup o' tay and a bit o' bacon it will be th' worse for ye." "I've brought a gentleman with me,'' said Alice. "He wanted to come and see you, and here's a quarter for your tea and bacon. He give it to me for bring in' him." The old woman lifted her shaking head and looked at the professor with watery, bloodshot eyes. The professor didn't waste any words. "Madam," he said, "this little girl lias a wonderful voice. I want to take her home and teach her to sing. Are you willing that slio should go?" "And what would I be doin' widout her?" whined the old woman. "And me wi' the rheumatiz that bad I can't be puttin' me foot to the floor." "Well," said the professor, "here's a $2 bill that I'll give you. And I'll send you that amount each week if you will let me have the little girl." The old woman hesitated a little at first, thinking that perhaps the profes sor would increase his oiler. But when she saw that lie had no such intention she accepted eagerly enough. And then tue gentleman took Alice oy tne nana and led her away, while the grandmother sat mumbling over the crisp new green back, without so much as giving her a word of farewell. Alice began to be frightened. She commenced to cry and kept on crying, even when the car stopped and the pro fessor led her up to the front of a beau tiful house looking right oil on the park. She still cried and begged him to let her go back to her miserable alley and her wretched old grandmother. She didn't feel any better when she got in side of the hall and stood on the soft carpet among the pretty lightsome flow ers. You seo she wasn't used to it. The professor stepped to the foot of the stairs and called: "Come down here, Kitty. I want you." And Kitty came, a beautiful little yellow haired fairy, all in ribbons and lace, who cried, as she ran downstairs: "Oh, papa, where did you get that little girl?" "I found lier down in our alley," an swered the professor, with a twinkle in his pvn. "How do you do, little girl?" said Kitty. "What pretty hair you've got; and, oh my! what lovely bootsl Where did you , tot tharo?" Alice was an rigiit now. one wiisu i , afraid any rnoro ami she answered very j promptly and confidentially. "I bought 'cm of the ragman for fi' | cent, and I Rot this dress from the rag man, too. Ain't it a daisy?" lu a very few minutes the little girls were chatting away as if tliey had known each other always. And then Professor TIale told his daughter to go ' and call her nurse. When she appeared he said: "Mary, you may take this little girl upstairs and give her a bath, and dresp her in some of Miss Kitty's clothes. To morrow you may go out and see about getting her some clothes of her own, and you may fix up the little room next to yours for her to sleep in. She is going to stay with us for a while." • « * « # * It was night in the gay city of Paris, ι and the grand opera house was all ablaze ] with a thousand lights. Up and down through the gilded foyer ' gay couples were walking, and as they walked they talked of the young girl who ] was to sing that night. "They say she is very beautiful," said one, "and that she sings like all the birds in the forest." "She's young," sajd another, "only 15, tho bills say. And yet she has studied 1 under all the masters, and they pro- ! nounced her wonderful." , I am sure you have guessed by this time that tho singer was no other than our little girl of the alley, Alico Flynn. It was a daring thing to bring her out in | the gay capital before all the critics, but Professor Hale was a man who dared. Ho proved that when he first took charge of Alice. At last it was time for her to appear. She came forward almost as timidly as sue lirst entered w great liuuse on rii ty-ninth street in New York. The hundreds of people, the dazzling lights, the sudden burst of applause and the hush of expectation which followed it were all so confusing that Àlice was bewildered. Her first impulse was to turn and run, but then she remembered what Professor Halo had said to her: "I am looking forward to the greatest triumph of my life to-night. You must not disappoint me." He was standing in the flies now, breathlessly watching her, and Alice said to herself, desperately, "I must not fail." And she did not. Her voice trembled a little at first, and the people began to look at each other significantly. And then— But who could describe that song? When she ceased the great audience sat silent and in tears. Then from a thousand lips came the "Bravo! bravo! Call her back! Encore! encore!" When Alice came forward the second time she found herself confronted by a barricade of roses, which her enthusias tic audience had piled in front of the footlights. She never knew what made her do it. She hadn't thought of the old song for years. But it came to her now, and without any assistance from the orches tra she sang: Of all tho days that's in the week, I dearly lovo but ono day, And that's the day that comes betwixt A Saturday and Monday. The air was still quivering with tho homely yjathos of her pathetic minor key when from the pit there came a startled cry of "Fire! The wings are on fire!" Of course there was a stampede. Some one sprang from the right of the stage and seized Alice's arm. "Come this way. There's a solid wall of fire on the other side. It started in the green room and crept around to the stage." "But Mr. Hale is there," said Alice, fearfully. "Well, he'll have to stay there, then," said the man, "for nobody can get at him now." He still attempted to drag Alice away. "But Borne one must get at him. 1 will not go and leave him here." "I tell you it is madness," cried the man. "It's sure death to go near tliat side." • men ι a acay ana aie wuu mm, saia Alice, firmly. Then, with a presence of mind that was wonderful, she ran to the dressing room, seized a long woolen cloak, on which 6ho emptied the contents of the silver ice pitcher, and wrapping herself in it, she plunged straight through the wall of fire. Mr. Hale was not where she thought. She ran about through the stifling smoke, but could not find hitn. The man who tried to hold her back stood in the center of the stage, dazed. Some one ran up and seized hijn by the shoulders, asking in a frightened voice: "Where is she? Where is Alice?" It was Professor Hale. He had escaped from the other side. Dumb with astonishment and terror, the man pointed toward the flies, which were now a mass of flame. "Why did you let her go in there?" "She thought you were there and she went to save you," was the answer. The professor, before the other could prevent him, sprang in after her. An instant later he drugged her out on the stage. Streams of water began to . play over the flames, and soon the two men were able to make their way out to the street, carrying Alice between them. In spite of the long cloak the fire had dealt cruelly with her. For several min- j utes she showed 110 sign of life. Then j she opened her eyes and made an effort to lift her head. The professor raised her tenderly up j in iiie rrme Slift lnnlmrl intn his nvna pleadingly for a moment and then a mist soemed to gather. She lifted her right hand with α pathetic little gesture and faintly, tremulously, but sweet and plain tive as ever camo the strain: "And she lives down in our alley." That was all.
