?JJflfff^ * IMPORTANT EVENTS EWORLD CENTERS fey ARCH ftonomns, Stuff Correspondent. LONDON, Nov. 12.—The eighth marquess of Queensberry was' renown- od in England as a gentleman, scholar and sportsman. His Interest in pugil- fnm brought prize fighting out of the dark ages of bare fisted mayhem Into the present era of gloved' slaughter. The spirit of the marquess of Queensberry, embodied in the Queensberry rules, still pervades both ring and audience at an English prize fight, which ifi quite a gentlemanly affair compared with boxing contests in some civilized countries. Talca a program at the Royal Albert hall as an example of how quiet and clean an evening of fisticuffs may be. The official announcer, a tall gentleman wearing a freshly pressed dinner jacket, steps neatly through the ropes and advances to the center of the ring to announce tho first bout. In ft voice loaded/with deep rich accent he Begins : ' "Ladles and gentlemen. It gives me great pleasah to present to you the "contestants in'the first of the matches to he seen heah this evening. Heah we have Joe Smith of Cuttlestone-on- Leatherhead, xveight 8 stone, 2 pounds, and 3 ounces. (Joe Smith rises and greets his public in the approved manner.) Over heah we have John G e d r 1 c of East-Bramblebush-on- Thames, weight 7 stone, 12 pounds, 4 ounces. -The referee is Mr. Albert Hall. Ladies and gentlemen, I thank you." He retires from the-ring amid shouts of "thankqu" from the audience. ' The gladiators then move forward into battle. For the benefit of those who think of a stone only in terms of pieces of rock, it might be explained that a ston'e is an English weight totalling 14 pounds. The fight starts slowly, for the average English boxer thinks rn"ore of his defense than of rushing Ijis opponent. The first bout produces four rounds of nice boxing without bloodshed, .and the accent of the announcer V ms out with, "Ladies and. gentlemen, the referee's decision is a draw. I thank you." The referee "is the sole judge of.fights over here. The second bout is six rounds and a little livelier. The 8,000 spectators in the Royal Albert hall respond accordingly and there is evidence that if left alone they would display considerable enthusiasm. But at this moment the announcer plays a part that may be Jn accord with the spirit of the marquess of Queensberry but is certainly strange to American ears. He has moved back to the euge of the ringside seats. When one boxer presents his opponent with a good old fashioned sock on the beak and the customers groan or cheer according to their feelings, the announcer cries out in the deep resonant voice, "Quiet, gentlemen* please." Thus the rally subsides, and perhaps the announcer adds an Inward thank you. - There is little cheering or groaning at the .ringside proper. Most of the noise comes from the cheap seats, as usual. But the calm of the ringside is probably unequalled In the world.' Lord Soandso enters with two .-lady guests. His lordship looks terribly fed-up with the idea of prize .fights in general. His seats are occupied by three Frenchmen who came over from Paris to-see Edouard Mascart in action /'and entered the privileged ringside class by crawling under the press tables. His lordship''s love for boxing contests Is in no way whetted by this delightful little Interlude. The usher whd finds that the Frenchmen can not understand tKe word for tickets does not summon the chucker-out, but merely waves the Parisian gentlemen aside and they plant themselves in '' three other seats. His lordship renounces boxing after about ten minutes, the ladies move closer to the ring, and the seat paid for by the earl of Soandso is eventually occupied by an elderly gentlema.n who entered the „ arena art: a press messenger's ticket. The majority of the ringside seats are occupied by stiff shirts, with full evening dress predominating. There are a few women present. Most of the gentlemen load their pipes with shag, light up, and sink back in their seats ' to enjoy the program in silence. Their remarks are confined to such observations as,'"I say, I believe-this chap in the green trunks gets better as he goes along. Who is he, by the way?" The answer Is something like "The one 'in black is not ' 'ightfully accurate, is he. Jolly good "program, nevertheless." The idea of insinuating that either fighter, the referee, or the promoter is a low character, and hurling a cushion or bottle to emphasize tho suggestion, Is as unlikely as re• bellion among the guards at Buckingham palace. Things to learn about London: When a freight train jumps the track, the incident appears In. the local press under the heading, "Goods train leaps the metals," 'MIRACLE" CURED A cripple for 18 years, Franc!* Mng-glo; son of an attorney, claims to have been cured by the "miracle" waters from the stone chalice on the tomb of tho Kcv. Patrick rowers In Maiden, Mass. Hero you see him using his crutches for only partial support after his fourth visit to tho grave. Others have reported "cures" , from visits to the shrine. URGES PAVILION TO CUT CHINESE WEDDING COSTS PEIPING, -Nov. 12.—Construction of a marriage pavilion in Feiping, where Chinese of all classes may celebrate wedding ceremonies, is suggested by CheniKuo-chen, a member of the Kuo- mintang, as a solution of the high cost of weddings. Chen urges the municipality to build this pavilion, and suggests that prominent people hold their weddings..there to make the place popular. Then he believes middle-class and poor people Will take up the idea, and thereby save themselves the disproportionate amounts now spent on weddings. Poor people sometimes spend the equivalent of an entire year's cost of living upon a single wedding. « STATE GRANGE TO MEET.
