The ebb f topic, of conversation yes
terday afternoon and this niotiiliig
among lovers of the tnrf wnt tho nnex
pccled defeat of MUs Woodford by tho
I.orlllanl's Pontine. It was expected
that tlio Queen of tho Turf would win
her race easily, though till tho best
horses In America, save Imported ltlcli-
mond were pitted against her. O L.
Loilllatd had In" Thaekeruy nnd
I.ouIelte, tho foimer having defeated
Woodford ticlioit tlmo ago In ti seven
eighths' daih. Withers had in lit fast
one, Duplex, at 110 pounds, and many
thought ho would get tho placo money.
So prevalent was this Idea, that tho
bookmakers hero only laid 8 to 5 against
lilin. Though Loulsotto was tho moro
lauded of George J.oilllard's pair, the
owntt evidently tried to win with
Thackeray. So suto was every ono of
Woodford's victory, that tho book
makers hero would only lay 1 to It and
1 to ! against her; Pontine was at fi to
1; Iiotilsctlo, (! to 1, and Thackeray and
Grenadier, 10 to 1 agalnt. Loulsotto
set out to make tlo pace, but was passed
at tho half by Woodford nnd l'ontlac.
Tlio English black had tho advantage
attlm thrro.quailors, and McLaughlin,
Hulling the mate could not win, eased
her up, Thackeray lltilshlng second
and Loulctto llihd. Thu time, 1:1!),
was slow, though the track, to bo sure,
wan Foniewhat heavy.
Tho defeat of Woodfoid will un
doubtedly lead to tho long-talked of
match between her and tho black
submbau winner. Tlio slicking point

Over 7,000 people witnessed this remark

side. Chicago played without error,
and Now York made only 3. For nine
Inning both sides wero blanked In
quid; succession. Most of the work
was done by the pitchers, catchers and
In-ilelders. Not a hit for moro than
one baso was mado during the wholo
game. Tho tenth Inning began amid
great excitement. Ewlng. the first
man at bat for tho New York, drive a

his anxiety to Held the ball in, fumbled

was thrown out. In thomeaiitlmo Ew

hall to Williamson, who touched Ewlng
and, In tho opinion of a large number of
those present, put him out. The um

declared Ewlng Eiife. A great shout
went up, and when, a few moments
later, Ulllesplo ilrovo a grounder to

seemed to lose Its senses. Men throw
their hats In the air nnd danced nround
like schoolboys. This was the only run
made. Chicago made a desperate but
vain attempt to score In their Inning.

been struck by a pitched-ball as hard as

A bold highway lobbety was com
mitted on I he Avenue, near Tenth
street, about -l o'clock yesterday after
noon, while the Avenue was crowded
with clerks from the up-lown depart
ments. Henry Darey, who dt Ives one
of Hcurlch's beer delivery wagons, had
stopped in front of a saloon to deliver
several kegs of beer and make a collec
tion of money. A cab that had collided
with him Intentionally at Thhtccnth
street nnd tho Aventto drove up as he
dismounted from his seat. There wcro
thrco men In tho cab, and rough char
acters, by thu way. George North
rldgo was driving and his brother, Will
iam, and Henry Schultels wore Inside.
George Nortlnidgo dismounted llrst,
and walked quietly townrd the beer
man and struck him a tenille blow on
tho head with the butt of his whip.
Darcy was stunned by the' blow, and
came near falling. Before ho recovered
the robbers relieved him of his pocket-
book, which he carried in the Insldo
pocket of his jacket. Tho pookethook
contained about $j0. Darcy recovered
consciousness and grabbed tho pocket
book, but ono of tho men got the money
and stalled down Tenth street. It was
all done In a remaikably short space of
time, but a crowd began to collect, and
before thev could real'zo thu situation
tho two men drove oil" in tho cab, nnd
took up the man with the money at
Ninth street. Policeman Ed. Wcedon
arrived on the spot at that moment and
jumped Into n hansom, and tried to get
tlio driver to urge his horse. The driver
was not very enthusia-'tic about over
taking tho highwaymen, and thu otllcor
selcd tho rclhs and pounded the horse,
and tho result was an exciting raco be
tweon him and the lleelng robbers.
They went up Ninth street to D, down
D to Eighth, and up Eighth to E, and
across to Fifth.
The race attracted a largo crowd, and
the policeman urged his hone with his
club. Ho was losing ground, and It
looked ns if tho men would get away
from him when ho met a gentleman
wl'li a team of fast horses. Wcedon
quickly explained thosituatli 11 and tho
man took tho olllcer In and they over
took the Hying cab In a short time. As

"I suppose- wo could If we tried," she

"Yes, of course wo must," ho re

Where are wo to meet the shallop?"
What, don't you know?" questioned

Then Air. Dunstan Insisted upon her

Mr. Dunstan inquired whether any

Refreshed with that beverage which

started oil' once more with her com
