Metropole Club will be well represented
in the crowd,
There is talk, and serious talk too bf
local sporting men of matching Jack Fal
vex ngsmnst Austin Gibbons, The men
behind Falvey mean business and they've
gct the mone{to back up their opinion,
hey think that Falvey can defeat the
Jerseyman and ere many days according
to rmoent- indications, there will be a
challenge issued, with a forfeit to back it
up, }’(’i the men who are willing to back
the Rhode Islander. It all rests with Gib
bons, I think, as to whether or not they
come together, The matter of matching
them has gone so far that Falvey's backers
bave been looking around for a place to
!mll it off, but as Ket have agreed on not h
ng definite, 1f t e‘y meet at all it will
be right here on Rhode Island soil in all
probabi lit?'.
Well, what of the men® Which wonld
you pick for a winner if they come to
gether? Falvey's chances ought to be
good. He is cleverer than Gibhons by long
odds and when it comes to being shifty on
his feet Gibbons isn't in it with Jack.
The New Jersey man’s stock as a fighter
has dropped about 50 per cent. since his
fluke with Jack McAuliffe and the fact
that men who have seen both of them in
the ring are willing to back Falvey
against Austin is |}v]n'tty good evidence
that they know, or think they know what
they are doing.

welcome and Wwhen fts ioulv.nmu are con

hearty approval of all who saw it. The bl;}
ufige was fitted up hastily for the change o

smoothness,
Emma Jueh and Albert Guille as Marguerite
and Faust and Franz Vetta as Met‘hismplwh-s
were called before the curtain at the close of
the first wrt.
After this there was a long wait. The attnfo
carpenter attracted gréat attention. Scarcely
anyone left.for everybody was anxious to hear
the “Cavalleria Rusticana™ sung and they
were well satisfied with it when at last the
curtain rose on a scene in a Sicilian town, with
gaily dressed peasant girls and men.

provements are made in the cast and lines,
and there have already been many, it will get
its just dues. Beyond question th:dpla,v is better
acted and more evenly distribnt than when

graceful artiste deserves enmura‘,n-mo-nt when
ever she essayvs “Judith,” not from any n?'m

AS 1 WAS SAYING.
There is a woman who comes runnin
down the steps of a Louse on Greene ut.ree%
every morning jlustv as | Yau through it
and in her hand she has always a bunch of
vivid flame-colored nasturtiums. She
crosses the street with a quick step and
})ulls the bell of the house op?osiw. Be
ore it has fairly begun to_jingle there is a
face at the second floor window above, It
is a bright face but a ¥le one nmiling
above a blue wmpger. he woman wit
the flowers holds them up and nods, and
the pale woman reaches her hands down
ward towards them, and then the door
opens and the flowers and the two women
dnsa{)pvur. One morning the flower
carrier dr(ipped a nasturtium on the side
\l\'ulk and I wore it in my button hole all
day.

It is a noticeable fact that women, no
matter how eloguent, gifted or learned, do
not know how to make speeches, as a rule,
The{ are not sumcientlvxg ‘“‘cagey.” They
say indiscreet things. They tread on Keu
ple’s toes, At a public meeting at which
only ladies wvre{present in New York not
long ago, the wife of oue of America’s best
known ’)rem_-hers made a remark which
must, if it had become generally known,
have half ruined her husband’s life work
and utterly destroyed her own influence—
simply from want of tact. Yet she is a
remarkable woman,

If women are to extend their i:uhllc ac
tivities it would N? them to take lessons
in speech-making by attending political
meetings, Long practice has made men
adept in avoiding people’'s corns when
they walk. A tenth rate Yolitiml orator
could give most women of high intelligence
g(:inu on “what not tg say and how not
say it.” Yet women are nnguestionably
the more eloguent sex and are su;flmwd
not to be witl‘mut personal tact. All that
they need is a course of attendance at
political "M‘l!fillg.‘i.' S
“It’s queer how business is inflnenced
some times by little things,” said a Provi
dence stationer the other day. “Once, a
business man coming to Providence and
{mttinu up at a hotel, found a very cheap
ooking but very good pen in use in th~
writing rcom, I{i inquired of the land-
Jord where he got the pens, and was re
ferred to me. Well, last month's bill of
goods to that man was at the rate of
about £OO a year. He's one of my best
customers; and a pen did it.”
