The City Hall Rink was crowded last night, it being one of the ladies’ evenings. The floor was in splendid condition. Tomorrow evening there is to be a comic bisycle race versus skates. Miss Mabel Sylvester makes her final appearance at this rink on Saturday next. In the afternoon she gives two performances, and in the evening three, which are all of a vaiied character. Her “ masherette ” act will be the feature of the evening. The afternoon prices will be the same as usual. At the Palace Rink last evening a moderate house assembled to witness the second exhibition of trick bicycling by the Kingsley Bros. As on the previous exhibition by these clever riders, the audience frequently recognised with loud applause the excellent manner in which the various movements wc;e performed. The exhibition of double bicycling by the brothers was an improvement upon that of Saturday evening, some of the tricks performed being nothing short of marvellous. To-night a procession of local wheelmen—headed by the Kingsley Bros.—will start from the Octagon and proceed to the rink, where, in the course of the evening, the Kingsleys will give a performance.
