ECHOES OF SPORT. Kitchener, the smallest jockey that ever had a mount in an important race, has given more trouble to sporting scribes than any other jookey that ever donned a racing jacket. How often has the question ' What was Kitchener's bodily weight ?' been answered in the sporting newspapers ? A jorrespondenfc has furnished an English publication with some very interesting particulars of this wee bit of humanity. Kitchener, who real name was Titchener, waa taken out of the West Sussex WorkhouBe, an orphan and a friendless lad, by George Ducker, who trained horses for Mr. Dorian, of Adsdean Castle, Sussex. The correspondent says that he often played marbles with Titchener at Adsdean, and that Titchoner always cheated. Subsequent events proved fchafe Titchener could not ride straight. As a boy he rode for Mr. Dorian, and his transference from Ansdean to Newmarket was due to the fact that he galloped Hobbie Noble down the turnpike road from Adsdean to Chichester on the eve of the...

A certain colonel, remarkable for his oddities, having drunk too freely, ordered his servant, who was an Irishman, newly hired, to bring him his pistols. The servant obeyed. The colonel then loaded them both, and, having locked the door, commanded his man to hold one of the candles at arm's length till he snuffed it with a ball. Prayers and entreaties were in vain, ana compiy ue must, and did, though trembling. The colonel performed the operation at the first attempt, then laying down his pistol, was going to unlock the door. Patrick catches up that which was loaded. ' Arrah, master,' says he, ' but now you must take up the other candle, and let me have my shoot, too.' The colonel called him rogue and rascal to no purpose; he was now vested with power, and would be obeyed. Accordingly his master extended the candle ; but, this being the first time of Pat's performance, he not only ami6sed the candle, but shot off a button from the breast of the colonel's coat. So narrow an escape ha...

Tragedy in Fact and Fiction. Here, by the way, is a short and true story of the day that few novelists would hare dared to invent. Kentucky is a hot-headed, warm-hearted, fearless State. Picking up a Kentucky paper you feel that, compared with an English county, it is indeed a new corner of a new world, though America is beginning 10 nave ita anmqumes ana to talfc of its ancient buildiags. One of the latest incidents of Kentucky is singularly tragic, not alone in a sanguinary sense, hut dramatically. One L. D. Woods, a respectable inhabitant of Cleveland, had a sister who, desiring to visit a siBter in Somerset, was placed by a rail road guard in charge of the night clerk at a station which was only a mile from Somerset. While she was waiting for the train Mr. Barney Higgins, the luuyuL ui uuiuemcb, uuiuu upon une scene ana ottered to drive her to her 6ister's house.
