ATHLETICS. (CONTINUED FROM PAGE 3.) [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 February 1887

ATHLETICS. I {continued from paqk 3.) As the 440yds. Handicaps do not come within the meaning of sprint racc3 accord ing to the Sir Joseph Banks jrules no penalties will be enforced against tliojirafc or second men. Next Monday the beats of tho Ouarter-inilo .J2-.miicap promoted by Mr. jrinS: jSrnith will, be run. The entry is a very large one indeed, and all our best men have accepted. It must be pleasing to Mr. Smith to find himself so warmly supported by all tlie best runners. M'G^rrigal on 20yds. should run a very good man, but Myers on scratch thinks ho can win. The handicaps are so well adjusted that I do not particularly fancy anyone at present excepting M'Garrigal or Morrissey, ou the 14yds. 1 venture to say that the affair will bo a great success. The acceptances for the Sir Joseph Banks Sheffield should be very numerous, and there is promise of it being the greatest success yet attained in the way of iprint running.

A BEAR STORY. [Newspaper Article] — Referee — 24 February 1887

A BEAR STORY. Old Putnam is fairly outdone by a man in Texas. Every schoolboy is familiar with the famous feat of Gen. Putnam, of revolutionary fame, in crawling into a cave and shooting a large wolf that was a terror to the neiirhbourhoud. Putnam's feat has always been regarded as an extraor dinarily daring one, but thero is an old man in Ulvade county, Western Texas, who sees Old Put. and goes him several better. He is ail old hunter, who pays particular attention to reducing tho census of the bears. He goes about dressed in uncouth garments, with a hatchet and a pistol in his belt, looking very much like a twin brother of Robinson Crusoe. His campaign plan for reducing the number of bears is surprisingly simple. He crawls into the bear's cave and shoots him in the head with a re volver. He lias within the last ton years killed upwards of three hundred bears. In some instances, he has followed a bear more than fifty yards into the bowels of the earth, j using a lantern in such cas...

Now, two or three seasons back, when the two latter boats met, the Asteroid generally allowed the Lotus (then known as the Water Nymph) 3 to 4min. and beat her, but since then the Lotus has undergone a thorough overhaul, and has been rigged to perfection, and consequently has proved herself to be a much faster Doat than before.
