BOXERS DRAW GOOD HOUSE
Exhibition Suits the Crowd at
Board of Trade Saloon
The only drawback to the boxing ex-
hibition at the Board of ITade Iasi
night was that there was not enough
tables to stand on. Some lloor space
was unoccupied near the front door be-
cause the unfortunates in the rear of
the crowd could not persuade men on
the tables to "Down in front."
The "program" consisted of four
three-round bouts. The participants,
except one. were cockneys from "Mile
Knd road" in the Whitechapel district
of London, where people drop their
H's and pick up anything else that is
loose. The boys are all clever amateur
boxers as such exhibitions are common
in the district where they learned the
The first bout was a. draw between
Scotty Clark and Paddy Laurell. It:
was an even thing between Scotland
and Ireland. “The Cockney" made
a stand-off with "Missouri Slim." the
only American in the bunch. James
Roche and Jim Allen furnished the
most amusement,as they had tarried at
the bar too long on their way to the
ring. They went only two rounds but
the bridle was thrown off, there was no
limit but the ceiling, and they went
their own gait. Allen received the
decision. In the last George Shaw got
the decision over Billy Smith in three
To reward the pugs the hat was

ARE CALLED CAVE-DWELLERS
Old-Fashioned Customs Still Prevail
Under Peculiar Name at
A few only of the old customs survive,
says Ainslee’s Magazine. We still sit on
the front steps when the weather per-
mits. Our carriages are still drawn up
in front of the markets on certain days
of the week. Our girls still continue
to think it is entirely proper for them
to walk through the public streets and
to the theater without head covering.
We still persist in believing in the
primitive character and potency of the
picnic and other bucolic diversions. We
still dine in the middle of the day on
Sunday. After that you will not be
surprised to hear that our new-fangled
friends who prefer tea and bridge to
poker and mint julep call these good peo-
ple, derisively, “cave dwellers." “Cave
dwellers," "troglodytes," or by whatever
name this element in Washington so-
ciety may be called by the ultra-fash-
ionables, it cannot be denied that it
furnishes an important support to the
social framework. The fashionable
element comes to-day and is gone to-
morrow. The "cave dweller" remains.
He is, naturally, an old resident of the
Clemency of Empress.
While the dowager empress of China
was recently proceeding to the summer
palace in her sedan chair she was thrown
to the ground owing to the carriers
stumbling. Though her majesty was
not hurt, her things were scattered
about the road. The guards were liable
to the most severe punishment for their
carelessness, but the empress, to their
great joy, pardoned them on the spot.
Much comment was caused among the
foreigners on the empress' clemency.
Toads sit at night around the bases
of electric light poles along the coun-
try roads of England, waiting for the
fall of the dead, injured and partly
cooked moths which have alighted on
the hot globes above.
