Warmoll, a popular and enterprising sporting gentleman, has become lessio of tho old Woolpack Hotel within the last couple of months. In that short time he has laid down as pretty a cinder track as the most idealistic could desire. In a neat little garden at the back of tl:e hotel there is constructed a good 70 yaris track, that has gained the hearts of the runners at first sight. Sir. .Warmoll is a man that if he once puts his hand to anything he is never satisfied until all obstacles are over come, and in a short time inter.ds to have a full 130 yards of a cinder track com pleted. Hutehens, the cliatapion of the world has been training here, and his preparation is near completion. .

Proposed Alteration in Cricket Rules. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887

Proposed Alteration in Cricket Rule a. Shrewsbury, Lillywhito, and Shaw, who havo been interviewed, express their disapproval of the proposition to give six balls to each over, and tho alteration of the rule of leg before wicket. They say oxtending tho overs would tiro tho bowlers, and give the advantago to tho batsman, and alter ing leg before wickot rule would give un limited power to the umpire, and cause more gambling than over. Garrett ox presses similar views. Percy M'Donnell thinks if overs of five or six balls' were instituted it would shorten matches, and approves both it and. the alteration of tho leg before rule. Ho thinks if a bowler can make a ball break so as to take a wicket, if it is stopped by any part of the batsman's person tho bowler Bhould have advantage of his skill, and the batsman should be given out. Blackham and Spofforth also approve. The latter says English umpires aro much moro capable than the Australian. Major, Palmer, and Wardill approve of the pro po...

A WARNING TO STARTERS. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 6 January 1887

- A WARNING. TO STARTERS. It was during tlie running of the Odd fellows' Handicap, at Uulli, won by Clark, that au unfortunate; accident, which might have resulted mjire seriously, occurred. Mr. W. Kyan, the starter, was despatching the men on their journeys with the cus tomary pistol or revolver, but did not take the trouble to extinct the ball from the cartridges. 'When he fired the revolver he pointed it to the ground, so that the ball spent itself harmlessly in the earth. A person should never place too much confidence in firearms, for when loaded they are always dangerous. In ono of the lieats tlie runmlrs were at the scratch ready to start, '?' hen Mr. Kyan requested them to get on: their marks, at the same time pointing witli a flourish of the revolver the starts. It ljappened, however, at the time that a strong wind was blowing, and in some manner the cock of the revolver became entangled with the coat of the' starter.

He then goes on to say that Hogan ran in the Sheffield for which I was promoter, and gives me tho credit of being the trainer of the winner Best. I had nothing to do with fiest, however.

? Tips by :S]iocspike- ? Gladstone Sheffield. ? Although only half of. the first round of the above handicap was. run on Tuesday, yet in that half probably the final winner appeared. I think the Quecnalaiider, P. W. CARMODY, on 15 yards, who did the fastest heat in 12 9-10sec., will win. It is hard to see how ho got such a start, for he has been a good performer. Tliero i3, however, some talk of disqualification for incorrect ontry of performances. In liiB absence, I fancy J. Conway, 18 yards, who had a walk over. Anyway, it will be a good race between these two.
