THE LEAGUE'S FINE START
ricToxv FOJt tut: CtcxTint αλί> IXDUPMAOKNT CLVBS. Full Scorn· of the Two Gainn — The Athletic Clubs— Wnyn«'l Meeting— lively LnrlllsnlK and Sntcpirtful RcoU-Spurting blutée. The Jersey City Amateur Bowling League made a beautiful start lust night. Two games were played and both at tracted a large and enthusiastic audience. At both the best of feeling prevailed. The unsuccessful clubs accepted defeat gracefully, and the victors, although happy, did not indulge in any demonstra tion, Out gave three cheers and a tiger for their opponents, and gave it with a will. The compliment was returned by the vanquished, and then both united in endorsing the fairness of the umpire. At the parting there was a merry shaking of the hands by the rivals. Thus has begun the meetiDgs that will produce good results if the same spirit that was manifested last night li con tinued. THE RIVAL PLAYERS. The rival teams last evening were the Ceuturys aud l>ifayettes and the Inde pendents and Volunteers. A remarkable coincidence whs that the home clubs won in both instances, although the visiting teams the prophets had It would be suc cessful. The scores were low. This was due to the fact that the players were nervous at the opening, the use of regulation pins ana care in placing them on tlie spots and the players had to watch the chalk line and keep on the right side of It. They will become inured to these things with a little practice, the nervousness will vanish and the score will go ud. HOW THE CEXTÛHY8 WON. The Lafayettes were the callers at Colo nel Brown's Court House alleys, where tfieCenturys bowl. The alleys were in au nrti'li rnriditinn. The place reserved for the spectators was comfortably fliied. The couteet was nip and tuck and the audience had au op portunity to cheer both clubs. They moved along iike evenly matched trot ters until the fifth frame. There the Ceu - turys struck a snag. The pins would split so that It was impossible to make spares and the Lafayettes obtained a lead of 3T pins. The ill luck of the Ceuturys continued in the sixth frame and when the totals were put in they were in the rear by 51 pins. It was worse for them at the end of the seventh frame, as the boys from Lafay ette had improved their lead and were 58 pins ahead. The visitors were regarded as certain winners. A LONG LEAD LOST. The game is not won, however, until the last pin drops. Luck is fickle. The Centurys rallied white the Lafayettes fell away. In the eighth frame Hulse, Mages, Wallace, Bowiey and E. Del Orme made spaïes, and Mills and Kerr made strikes. An almost open frame for the Ceuturys. Loach, Douglass and Jones, for the Lày fayettesj made strikes to stay the gain of their opponents and Cohen put up a spare, the others failed to get either. The eighth frame closed with the Lafayettes in the van with a decreased score. The Centu rys had cut it down by 37 pius. In the ninth frame the Centurys drew closer to the visitors. Maggs. Bleder huse and E. DelOrme made strikes and Hulse put up a spare. t . The only open frames on the Lafayette's frame were those of Duls. who made a strike, aud Mills and Baxter had spares. The frame closed with the Centurys only seven behind. THE FIKAL SFCKT. The home team made a grand spurt in the last frame. Maggs and Kerr made strikes, and Hulse, Wallace and Bowiey made spares. The best that Uie Lafay ettes cuuld do was strikes by Brennan and Mills. It was a disastrous frame for the Lafayettes, and the Centurys finished thirty-one pins ahead.

Independent's First Victory, An enthusiastic crowd last night wit nessed the first game of the tournament of the J ersev City Amateur Bowling League on the Indedendent Club's alleys at Metropolitan Hill, Greenville. The Independent's opponents were the Volunteer's teuni. The alleys were in good condition and freshly oiled and tho players had a set of new pins to knock down. This they claimed was the cause of the low scores made by both teams. From the first, almost, it was seen that the members of the home team had their own way, and no private bets could be obtained. SLOW START BUT QUICK FINISH. The game did not. begin until nine o'clook, find it was half past ten before it was concluded, and the volunteers gave threo cheers for their victorious rivale. Among those who were present at the opening of the tournament and appeared deeply interested in the result were:— Lyman Van Winkle, Charles Finlay, K. W. Beach, Charles Schwartz, Fred Peil, Godfrey Dillovvay, Fred Delvay, G. Wake, E. F. Flannagan, J.Hill.Sr.,ana J. Hill,Jr. J. O'Neir, Lawrence Brooks, William Sotliern, Steve Myles, Fred Nieinau, S.

The fair for the benefit of the Home of the Homeless was auspiciously openea yesterday afternoon at four o'clock in the basement of tho Bergen Avenue Re formed Church, and, if last night's at tendance is a criterion, the ladies in charge of the fair have every reason to congratulate themselves on tti· success of tiiis charitable work. The hall presented a gay and animated appearance last evening. Pretty maid ens, w ith their weapons, a pencil, a book aud winning smile, whicn young men found very hard to resist, %vere making vigorous onslaughts on the purses of any young men who drifted in their way. Other young ladies, however, were con tent with waiting at the numerous booths until a youug man who desired to spend his ducats came along. There are in all live booths or tables at any of which chances may be had on al most anything from a pin to α locomo tive. Table No. 1 is presided over by Mrs. Armstrong. She is assisted by an able corps of ladies. At this latter there are a variety of staple articles, such as a barrel of flour, tickeo for a tou of coal, boxes of soap, barrel of potatoes, etc. Table No. 2 is the fancy booth where quilts, pin cushions, dolls, etc., form the attraction.

(BV ΜΑΠΥ KYRLK DALLAS.) I had been sent for in great haste, and had fancied that I was needed in some extremely critical case, for the hour was 9 in the evening and the night a stormy one. What, then, was inv surprise, when I had been ushered into a handsome par lor in one of the best hotels, to find, sit ting in a large arm chair and with no appearance of ill health about her, a very beautiful woman, whom I knew to be an actress of position and had often ad mired upon the stage. She was dressed in the most becoming fashion, and arose with a smile upon my entrance. Her maid, a Spanish looking woman, with a beautiful olive skin, remained standing near the window. "You look surprised, doctor," the lady began, motioning me to a seat. '-You will be more so before you leave me. I am not ill, and I can see that you know that at a glance." "You certainly are looking very well, madame," said I. "I am feeling well," said she. "The question that I desire to ask you, as a man who has made the brain, in some degree, a. specialty, is, Am I madV You need not mind my maid; she speaks no English. I want you to give me your opinion. Do you think me insane?" "That is a very difficult question, ma dame," said I. "A doubt of your ration ality never would havej occurred to me. Besides, insane people seldom guess theii condition. However, you must have σν/uiu ibucifu ιυι i/uo ^uvauvu· "A very grave one," she answered. "Either I am out of my mind or there are such things osghosts." "There are optical illusions also, ma dame,'' said I. "But illusions of the senses of sight and touch and hearing all at once. Would that not be madness?" asked she. "Not if you were aware they were il lusions," I answered. "But they seem real to me," said the lady, "oh, so real I I suppose you read the stories about me in the papers? You have heard of the man who killed him self for love of me?" "The Frenchman!'' I asked. "To tell the truth I liave read it." "They said I was cruel to him," said the lady, growing somewhat excited. "I was not. I \vas kind at first; but he dogged mv footsteps and threatened my life. Not at first, of cour3e, but after I had accorded him au interview, and re fused him as gently as a woman could refuse a man. He wantod me to marry him. He was rich, of good family; he was honorable, and very, very much in love. But I, how could I love a stranger? And he was ugly, a great, savage look ing creature. After that he tried to kill me. He shot at me. I had liim arrest ed, and he committed suicide in prison." She paused and shuddered. "It is he who comes," she added. "■Naturally," said I, "you have been greatly shocked. You dream of him, and your dreams are so vivid that you fancy them actual occurrences." "I knew you would say that," sha sighed, "but I have very vivid dreams, for in them friends who have been dead for years come to me. They speak and move, and touch me. But when I awake I know I have been dreaming. This is different. My ghost—or my madness— ΡΛΐηοβ tn mn η non f.lio efrî<yA " "Upon the stage':"' I repeated. "Yes," she answered. "He says I shall not act again. I was playing a week ago when he came. He often comes, but never before did he touch me. This time he laid his hand upon my aim, and whispered: " 'I tell you you must retire from the stage! I exact tliia penalty of you. The nest time you tread the boards I will kill you!'" "Well?" said I. "I fainted," said the lady, "and fortu nately it was tho correct thing to do at the moment. Only my fellow aciora guessed the swoon to be a real one. But the next day I canceled my engagement. I declared myself ill. The truth is I was very much frightened. I had grown used to his staring and pointing to his throat, but when it came to touching me and speaking" She paused, shuddering violently. "Yours is a case of disordered nerves, madame," said I. "I advise you to take a holiday." "I don't dare to go on acting!" she gasped. "Don't you see that? Why, I really believe you do not know why I am so troubled! In the very prime of life, with everything I value at my hand, I must sink into obscurity—retire on a email sum of money, when I might make an immense fortune—give up the applause I live for, the art I adore—and all because a ghost will have it so!" The tears arose to her beautiful eyes. She wiped them away and forced a laugh. -Oh, y<M know I had rather think my self a little out of my mind than to be lieve in my ghost!" stud she. "So should I," said I. "If you will tak« my advice you will give youre^lf a holiday, surround yourself with friends, and forget your hallucination—it is one. You are just a little upset, and it will pass." I wrote a prescription. "Take this at night," I said. "I assure you that science has distinctly proven the fact that ghosts do not appear to any one." Shortly I went my way. The fee sent to uiy office greatly exceeded my usual one, and the next day I read in the pa pers that Mme. had taken her physician's advice and would spend a twelvemonth in southorn Europe. It was more than a year, however, be fore I saw upon the walla of the finest theatre in the city the announcement of Mme. 'β reappearance. She was to play her favorite role, and tho paper» were lull of paragraphs concerning her. She was, they said, handsomer, ia better voice, and altogether more charming than ever. Beats at the theatre where she was to appear were sold three weeks in advance, and at fancy prices. As I had my fortune yet to make I felt that it was somewhat extravagant to at tend on the first night, hut I did so, nevertheless. It wa3 an occasion of dress coats and white ties. The house was full of the most elegant people in the city. The company was tine, the music excellent. The curtain rose Upon the· unimportant characters who always usher in a piny, j and finally the door at the hack of the ; atago was ilimg opte by a servant, and I Mme. entered. Λ roar of applause j greeted her. The papers were right. I She was handsomer than ever. Her role 1 was one to call forth all her art. She did not fail. As the play proceeded I noticed, how ! ever, that she occasionally glanced in the ; direction of one of the side scenes in a way I did not like. And as the curtain rose upon the last act there seemed to mc a longer wait than usual at the time when she should have entered; however, she came. She advanced to the footlights. The part she played placed her in that scene in the midst of a howling mob, who threatened her. Shu turned and faced them. They flourished weapons in the air. She ad dressed them, her tall form drawn to its full height. My memory of the play was I that at this moment succor arrived, but j it occurred to me that the scene was I changed. From the midst of the mob a strange, wild figure rushed forth. I saw it but for a moment. It threw back the ; collar of its coat and revealed a red gash ! across its throat and flung out its hand toward her. I saw it but for a moment, wondering what connection it had with the play. Then I saw Mme. fall forward on her face. Tike curtain fell. The house was in an uproar of excitement. A moment after a call was made for a doctor. I was the first to answer it. A littlo group of physicians gathered about the beautiful form tiiat they had lifted to a sofa; but we saw at a glance that we looked upon α dead woman. For my part a horror beyond that which sudden death inspires possessed me. "Dill yon notice the moment at which she fell?" 1 asked a prominent physician who stood near me and whom I knew well. "Yes," said he, "aa she spoke the last ι words of her dellance. Her friends were about to appear." "I fancied one of the populace—the one who touched her, who had blood upon him—frightened lier," I said. "Oh, no one touched her, my dear fel low," he said "There is nothing of the sort in the play. She awed them by her manner, you know. Good heavens, what a sad thing this is!" "It is horrible!" I answered. I think so still. Ko one but myself 1 had seen the man with the blood upon his throat unless she did, and unless all that I am bound as a medical man to disbelieve is true there aro sn«'h things as ghosts. MRS.
