The woDd used is Brazilian rose wood, and, taking into consideration the fact that an instrument only lasts a few weeks, and the wood to be seasoned for three years, ono can imagine Esmeralda as a busy woman. When not at work, Esmeralda spends her tlmo riding around the city in a cab. Auto mobiles travel too fast for her, and *he wants to see as much of the city as possible. For her harbor trips, she engages a waterman's boat.

LADY PROMOTER FOILED. j A message from Shrevpo*-t, Louisiana U.S.A., states that the strong arm of the law has thwarted Louisiana's only feminlno prize fight promoter, Miss Fannie Edwards, of Vivian, aud as a result the ppeedy little mill she arranged baa been ctflled off. After much scheming, this young woman, daughter of a prominent merchant, succeeded in closing a match bet ween Kid Aubrey and Young MeCorinick. The proceeds woro to help replenish tho depicted exchequer ot a band of which she was the busi ness manager. Wide advertising was accorded tho contest. Jealousy, springing from wide notoriety the fighters were attracting, is what is held accountable for brluglng the match to the attention of the authorities. The sheriff of Caddo was ordered to stop tho fight. To the uninitiated, cbiirsicg may appear to to n somewhat uninteresting sport, but then he is— uninitiated.

A CHAMPION FED OF THE SIXTIES. Although the name of the once-great athlete had been familiar to mo Bince my boyhood days, it was not until a rccent week that I had the pleasure of conversing with Mr. Tom Car ruthers, of Edinburgh, in his day one of the best all-round men in the country, and th-? ? print champion of Scotland for a dozen years (writes 'W.L.S.' in the Manchester 'Sporting Seventy-three years ot age.

SPORT IN OTHER LANDS FOUR FAMOUS MARES. ALICE HAWTHORN, BEESWIN'O, CAUUER OU, AND KINCSEM. Tho fact that Alico Hawthorn, Beeswing, and Caller Ou won between them no Ic33 than 151 races during their Turf careers la a sufficient testimony to their wonderful prowess (writes 'G.13.H.L.' in the London 'l.S. and D. News'). Achievement, Formosa, Sceptre, and Pretty Polly endeared themselves to tho heartB of tlio sporting public by their great deeds on the racecourse, but they wero no more tho eqnlne Idols of their day than wero tlio threo extra ordinary marcs alluded to In theirs. 'Virago I had a remarkable record.

ONE OF INMAN'S BEST. DELIGHTFUL DISPLAY IN BREAK OF 439 AGAINST PEALL. [Newspaper Article] — Saturday Referee and the Arrow — 29 March 1913
ONE OF INMAN'S BEST. DELIGHTFUL DISPLAY IN' BREAK OF 430 AGAINST PEA.LL. j When the match between Inman and W. J. i Pen 1 1 was arranged, says the London 'Daily I Express' of February 21, many people argued I that the strain of a billiard match of 24,000 up in a fortnight would sooner or later tell on the champion. There was nothing in the play at Thurston's yesterday afternoon to confirm this contention, for Tnmnn was in grand form, coin ing out with an average of 50 and an aggregate of 11S3 to 461. In a hrrak of 4.19 Innran gave one of his finest exhibitions. He played delightfully, his me thods being both Instructive nnd entertaining. For many years Inman was considered a per form or v;bo played with tuorr than average luck, and framed J1I3 game with a knowledge that his good fortune would enable him to progress. lli^ methods and style wero then somewhat crude, and the improvement he has made i3 astonishing.
