The Palace Rink was comfortably filled last evening, when Miss Mabel Sylvester made her second appearance in trick, fancy, and figure skating. Her movements were made with extraordinary rapidity and gracefulness, and she seemed to skim along the floor with no apparent effort. Upon the conclusion of her exhibition she was applauded sd heartily that she was compelled to return and go through a few extra evolutions, for which she received due acknowledgment. Manager Crockford announced that to-night Miss Sylvester would appear ia her famous fire act, which ia said to be one of the most interesting of her varied exhibitions. The Engineers’ full band was in attendance.
The City Hall Rink continues to be well patronised, the floor being in splendid order. Entries are now being received for the Three-mile Handicap Race, for which a handsome medal Las been procured. This should prove an exciting race, several wellknown fast skaters having entered.
