Displaying a form as startling as that t in his opening game of the tournament. Champion Jimmy Smith defeated Billy Englehardt in eight games, in the Greater New York Individual championship for The Eagle medal, at the Monarch Palace last night. Smith made the fine average of 227, which is just a trifle short of equaling his own record of 230 6-6 for one series. . He had to sacrifice the first two games to get "warmed up," for, after allowing Englehardt to get a lead of 2 to 0, he finished out the match by winning the next six in succession. Englehardt was forced to bowl his best to win the first two games. Smith rolled VL'T for his opening ngure, and Englehardt went to 234. In the second the Brook-lynite fell to 195, while the home bowler! hit 231. This was the only time during I the match that Smith went under the! double century mark. Smith began in xne tnird with 23 1, and trom then on, until the end, his lowest score was 211, which came in the seventh game, and was sufficient to win against 209 for Englehardt. In only two games, after Smith had started his rully, did the Monarch pin-knight come within striking distance of the' champion. Smith won the fourth by only 5 pins, and the seventh by only 2. The other games were easy victories. The victory places Smith second to Heins, with a record of 6 won and 2 lost. Scores: Hiiiltli 327. 217. 227 . 236, 243, 211, 243.

It certainly was a big night for Brooklyn in the tourney, for Billy Heins of the Subway alleys defeated Frank Bruno, the Riverside representative, In nine games At the Subway alleys. Heins did not roll in the form that has characterized his work In his previous matches, but he outclassed the Manhattanite easily. Heins won the first three games with scores that were well abovo the 200 mark, but dropped the third, when ho fell away to 179. Ho took the fifth with 216 and this was -the last time he hit above 200. Games then alternated until the end. Scores: Hclns 210, 222, CIS, 179. 2K. 158, 154, 161, 178. Tot!!, l.GMi; HverHse. IKS 4-7.

The little black object was Vixen, who had been sniffing and snarling at the tall j and legs of the elephant for some time, i much to Hathi's disgust. But when the j little terrier grabbed his trunk and be- j gan to scratch at it with his teeth, the j gigantic beast was seized with terror and j groveled a huge suppliant before hig lit-1 tie tormentor. ! Blinkers looked on In amazement at the j big creature's cowardice, but as ho had ; seen few elephants, he did not know that often they are more afraid of a tiny do- j mestlo animal than of some of their jungle companions. I Vixen, when he saw the huge shape wobbling before him, became somewhat j frightened himself, but as the animal : arose, evidently with tho purpose of de-feuding himself, Vixen renewed the charge, and in a few minutes was chasing the unwieldy brute around the ring in a most undignified manner, to the amusement of the onlookers who wero enjoying this fight between the Big and Little. Hath! had lost his head and was about to dash out of the ring when Kala Nag's big trunk grabbed up the terrier, and after shaking him until Vixen yelped for mercy, sat him up on his back, where the little dog sat and gasped for breath with a meek, subdued look In his fierce little eyes during the rest of the per formance. I The beasts now moved their tubi In a j row, where they all sat with books in their trunks as the trainer made long, marks on a llt'-lo blackboard. At a signal the books were lowered and each elephant in turn trumpeted as many times aB there wero straight marks on the slate. They looked very funny to Blinkers, as they sat with their mischievous, knowing j little eyes fastened on the teacher, and' the dog emitted a bark of delight when , they all rose on their hind legs, with j paws dnigllng before them In poodle j fashion, and bowed with little buucuIb to j tho trainer as he rang a hall as a sign 1 that school was over. The beasts now returned to their ped- ! estals, and after wheeling them around with their hlndlegs only, they sat down . on them, and with trunks rocking to and , fro, watched a stur performer walk on j the tops of a double row of bottles. For . this feat tho little elephant, for he was . a baby one, received a soda-water bottle which he promptly opened by holding it in the right position on the ground by his fort paw, whllo ho twisted the cork out of It with his trunk. The contents of tbo bottle he quickly emptied down hlB mouth and then with a bow roturned the empty bottle to the tralnor.

They were all chuckling and gurgling as they chased back and forth with their ears standing up like fans and their trunks swaying like a ship at sea. All Blinkers could see was a mass of broad, heaving backs, big yellow tutsks crossing nnd rccrosBing with loud clicks, swishing tails and rocking trunks, as he peered down at tho wonderful jungle dance. The dance that has rarely been Been of man, so say the elephant catch-era, us they tell of the elephant ballroom way back In the wilds of tho Junglo that these strange creatures have trampled level and smooth, as they have silently danced In the bright silvered light from the moon. When the dance was finished they all tramped with steady, pondcroui f?et that sounded like ihi uncumlng of an army to a pile of Ions at one end of tho ring. Here they formed a lino and each elephant, placing his trunk around a log In the center, carried It to the mid dle of the arena, where they laid them one by one on top of one another until the three walls of a llttlo log cabin had bren built. It was curious to see how diligently some of them worked, stopping only to give a lazy skulker a prod in the side aB much as to Bay, "Get a move on, you old lady, or you'll get a lash!" Kala Nag, the leader of the gang, as he laid a lug down crosswise on top of another, would stand with one eye shut as he glanced dawn the lino to see that the log was straight. The cabin was almost completed, when suddenly there came a loud "Hlkkl-tlkki-tavl!" and a little animal, half cat and hal weuBel, jumped from out of the pile of yogs. It scurried swiftly to the highest log and stood with pink eyes and nose and tall all of a fluff, scolding and chattering with rage at tho huge beasts, which had evidently disturbed his retreat. All nt once It gave a loud sneeze, as if choked with dust from the logs, nnd then KATHLEEN HAYES. ft4 ' -v ' tea . -siv- 'PI fMlwt YA ft,W..iit.iliiiaii4ilAraifS-,lili.fMiM!, Little Kathleen Was "Guest of Honor" Party. at a Recent Children's began to Jump up and down on all four feet together, and head to the ground, as l (puttered and called Klkkl-tikkl-tavl!

Li AUNT JEAN'S DAILY TALK Duchess, an elephant at the Lincoln Park Zoo, Chicago, was given her winter bath and massage of neatsfoot oil yesterday, while hundreds of children looked on. The elephant suffers from dryness and crat king of the skin in cold weather, due to Indoor air and steam heat. Sixty gallons of the oil, warmed and rubbed into her hide with brushes by keepers on stcpladders, were applied to Duchess. She trumpeted with pleasure during the operation and came out of it black aud glossy for the winter. i Minnesota Kanny, thoroughbred English setter, granddaughter of the famous I Joe Cummins, wears spectacles. Sue Is ( the property of Troy Cantrell of Lead ' Hill, Ark., and was fitted out this week j with "specks" by an oculist of Harrison, who found that she was suffering from ! astigmatism. This dog has been known j as the best hunting dog in Northwest Arkansas for several years. I This year, before the opening of the ' quail shooting season, Fanny went to the fields by herself, coming in ;u night badly scratched and many times showing evidences of bud falls and bumps. No such actions hud been observed In the : kennel yard und and over the lawn at home, where every object was known by . Fanny. It was discovered that her eyc3 had gone bad during the summrr and an oculist was called. The "specks' are. held In place by straps and appear much j like goggles.

If girls only new what! charm lies in the voice that Is soft but i clear and well modulated they would give 1 more attention to Improving and chang-1 lng tho oftentimes strident voice which jars on the sentitive ears of a listener. Many times 1 have met a girl with a1 fine profile and majestic carriage of the' head and I, of course, have expected her I volco to be low und deep and well .mod- j ulated. It has given me a distinct shock when I have heard her speak to hear a ' little squaking voice like a mechanical ' doll. I On the other hand the girls of "doll"! variety, of whom you would expect every quality of gentleness and sweetness, may! possess a deep masculine voice and unusually unpleasant sounding because It! was so unexpected. ' j Teachers of elocution have proved that It is not Impossible to bring about a complete change In tone by the cultivation of a voice. Wonders have been accomplished by them and the pupils of a conscientious teacher will not only speak in clear tones but they will enunciate distinctly without the loudness which seems to be fashionable nowadays. Addison says: "Notwithstanding a faculty bo born with us, there are several methods for cultivating and Inspiring it." I am quite sure that every girl wishes to have a pleasing voice and I am quite as certain that every girl can have it " it she will. Without this charming quality the grace of face and flsure will not so readily make and hold trlendB. Gentle and quiet wordB are much more powerful and effective than the kind, so try and sec that your voices arc tuned to the proper pitch aud tiien watch its effect upon others. AC NT JEAN.
