Now we hear of Hock Keys conceiving the Idea of hav ing a vicious dog to act in a similar capacity : but, like the lion, the dog was having nothing of that kind of thing, and bit and scratched Hock's face pretty badly.

Matters were in Walcou's favor until the Wth round was leached, when Joe suddenly stopped and compinlncd that hid right nrm was I broken, A majority of the onlookers hooted this abrupt termination of what had been an Interesting battle.

IN PRAISE OF THE BREAST STROKE IN SWIMMING. [Newspaper Article] — Saturday Referee and the Arrow — 8 February 1913

IN PRAISE QP THE BKEAST STROKE IN SWIMMING. The Editor 'Saturday Referee and Arrow.' Sir. — As one who bus been for- some time an enthusiastic supporter of that useful method of swimming— thc breast strokc—l should like to add my advocacy thereof to that of 'R.P.'* tSat orday Rof.'l U 131. Undoubtedly the stroke is far more suitable for a longer distuuoc than that over whlth it is customary to hold the championships at present. It may be advanced as an argument against tbe Inclusion of a long-distunee breast stroke event r.n the championship programme, that it would prove tirosome to the onlooker. This. I mast most emphatically deuv, as a race over, say. -140 yards ' on the breast' would prove a far more spectacular event man a 'crawl' oi a 'trudge' over ihe same distance. From nn aesthetic point of view, the breast stroke Is superior. K is a far more picturesque method of propulsion than Its more boisterous brother the 'crawl.' whilst its value as a means of building up physique an...

The race, which will be rowed over the full championship course on thc Parramatta River next Saturday, is full or interest. Felton con tinues to train assiduously from Peter Kemp'.* shed, with Svd.

Ills chances have always been considered good on smooth waters, but the last four weeks' work ou the Parrataatta. with the alteration of his rlggiug. has done a lot to improve his water manship.
