Jackets for the young and middle aged are oftener seen now in fee gay Paris streets than any other form of outdoor garment There are two styles: the ehort jacket, somewhat in the reefer style, with pretty little pockets Bet rakishly askew. The high Russian or Medici collar is indispensable in some sort of fur, or else of the material of the garment, covered with rich pas sementerie trimming in arabesque pat tern. In this case the sleeves are alec covered with this trimming. But fur is everywhere, on dresses, jackets, long wraps and hats and around the tops of children’s boots. Every kind of fur is seen, and ruffs of cock’s feathers as well as long boas and short ones are worn. A most beautiful reception dress was mado of old rose la dies’ cloth, gathered plainly in the back and with the front breadth slightly wrinkled. The very coarse tweeds and English homespun materials with rough and tuft ed surfaces for walking dresses are grow ing steadily in favor.

In the second round Slavin directed his blows at Kilrain’s ribs directly under the heart, and he landed too many of them to please Kilrain’s friends. Not withstanding this, Kilrain again had the best of the round. He nearly knocked Slavin over tlie ropes by a blow, on the neck, and hammered SI ivin’s head and face unmercifully. In the third round Kilrain again pounded Slavin to the ropes, but this seemed to exhaust his strength. Slavin struck Kilrain under the left ear and knocked him flat. He got up, rallied and clinched, but in the break away was again knocked down. The gong saved him from defeat in this round. He was in great distress. His seconds braced him up, and he managed to respond to the call of "time,” but Slavin hit him os he pleased. Kilrain was knocked down four times, and he was bleeding in stream? from a broken nose. Kilrain’s only hope was in clinching tactics, but eacii time he tried it he received terrible punishment in his ribs. FRANK ». SLAVIN. In the fifth round, Kllrain was again knocked down and nearly knocked out, but ho rallied. In the sixth round he was little more than a chopping block for Slavin. He got in several blows, but they had no force. In the sixth and seventh rounds only the friendly gong saved Kilrain from defeat. In the eighth round it was only a ques tion of endurance on Kilrain’s part. He was heljplees to defend himself or mischief. In the ninth round, Kilrain started in pretty good shape, and managed to get m a couple of blows on STavin’s head, but they had no force. Slavin, on the other hand, was hitting as fearlessly as ever. Finally Slavin hit Jake a tembli left-hander on the neck, and Jake went down as if shot; but, still game, Jake slowly and painfully rose and reeled, and as the gong sounded, had to be car ried to his corner, and Referee Jere Don gave the fight to Slavin, who forth with stepped over to his dazed oppo nent’s corner and shook hands with nun.
