thlrda of the bowling season. The only
Important feature of the week's play was
'the work of the (late City team In taking
'five gamea out of kIx from the Oermaus.
The postponed series was played off, as
well as the regular meeting of the sched
ule. The result boosted the percentage of
the Oate City men considerably. Mean
while the Omahas took but two out of their
three gamea with the Nationals, and thus
dropped a little In perci-ntag.'. Thus there
Is one team somewhere within striking dis
tance of the leadera once again. Hut It Is
a king journey yet to a tie. The Nationals
and the Clarksons were a tie for third
Idace last week, but this time the Nationals
lost, while their rivals won, and took the
position, the two being now separated by
ome fortyeven polTls of percentage. Tin
rest of the teams are strung out the same
as before. The Westerns and Krug Parks

the local bowlers by the announcement that

use the weighted ball constantly, and co-ild
hardly do without it. The weight of i n

pounds and one-half. Balls (re loadeil so

Matrimonial Mutters BrlnsT Family
Much In the Public Eye at
Present Time.
(Copyright, W3, by Press Publishing Co.)
LONDON. Jan. 31. (New York World Ca
blegramSpecial Telegram.) The earl of
Rosebery's family has been the center
of much social interest for some weeks.
First It was announced that bis elder
daughter. Lady Sybil Primrose, one of the
greatest heiresses In Britain, was betrothed
lo Charles Grant, whose sole distinction
seems to be that he Is a dancing man.
The match Is said to have been strongly
opposed by Lord Rosebery, but, as the
young woman has a will of her own and
likewise a fortune of her own (having In
herited It from her mother, a Rothschild),
she seems to have carried her point. She
Is 23 years old.
Her younger sister. Lady Margaret, mar
ried three years ago, at the age of 18, the
earl of Crewe, a widower twenty-three years
older than she and with three daughters
of Just about her age.
Next came the report that the former
prime minister's elder son and heir. Lord
Dalmeny, as engaged' to marry Lady
Marjorie Grenvllle, the only daughter of a
still famous beauty, the countess of War
wick. Lady Marjorie was 18 la October.
She Is handsome, fond of all outdoor sports
and a fearless horsewoman. She has not
gone Into general society yet, spending her
time mostly at Warwick castle.
Then came Lord Rosebery's party, Janu
ary 8, In commemoration of Lord Dalmeny's
coming of age. Dalmeny Is a second lieu
tenant In the Life Guards and goes much
in society, hut has no liking for politics
or study. The family's political hopes rest
on the younger son, Neil. On reaching his
majority Dalmeny came into the Inheri
tance from his mother of $10,000,000. Ills
one ambition In life is to cut a figure as a
