SHANAHAN THE ATHLETE.
Ho Holds the "World's Becord for tho
Running Two Hops and a. Jump.
'The accompanying picture 6hows Daniel
.Shanahau, the holder of the -world's record
for the running two hops and a jump. His
figures at this game are 50 ft. 1 in., and
he made this great performance at Lim
erick, Ireland, Aug. 6, 1883. In the fall of
that year he visited America on the Gaelic
Athletic team, but owing: to the different
nature of the grounds he could not ap
proach the figures he made in Ireland.
When he made this reco rd he won the
Gaelic championship at the running hop,
etep and jump.
The Irish authorities allow two hops and
n jump to be used when doing a running
hop, step and jump, although the games in
America are considered different and sep
arate records are given them. In a run
ning hop, step and jump the athlete, after
taking a run, leaps from one foot, lands pn
it again, wliich is called the hop; then he
takes a stride, landing on the opposite foot,
and the final movement is a jump from
that foot, landing on both feet. In making
a running two hops and a jump the athlete,
after giving the hop as in the other game,
hops again, landing on the same foot, and
his last move is a jump, leaping from that
foot and landing on two.
It is claimed that a further distance can
bo covered in a running two hops and a
Jump thau in a running hop, step and
jump, because in
the former all the
work is done on
one foot, which
in proportion than
the other foot.
Another point in
favor of the two
hops and a jump
is that on account
of the work being
done by the mus
cles on one side of
the body t he posi
tion of the athlete
does not change as
is necessary in the
hop, step and
jump, when first
one and then the
other foot ia used,
about a swaying
motion and some
timos a zigzag
who have tried
both games say
that although bc-t
tr figures can be done at two hops and a
jump they prefer the hop, step and jump
as an exercise, because it develops both

clothes. He is a first ch.s.s all round
jumper. lie has cleared over 22 feet at the
running broad jump, and when in America
took third at the national championship
games with 21 ft. 10a in. These figures
would usually win, but bo was in very
warm company. Victor E. Pchifferstein
won the contest with 23 it. 1 in. and A.
P. Copland wss second with 22 feet.
Thero was no grass good enough in the
vicinity of the large eastern cities where
Shanahan was that fall for him to make
great figures at his favorite game, and his
best effort at the two hops and a jump
was a little over 45 feet. In doing this gahio
he hops with his right leg and clears on
tho firbt movement 10 feet. His next hop is
between 13 and 14 feet and his final jump is
close to 13 ?t-t. To do tho game well one
must have well rolled, springy turf, for
the Hr in landing on the various hops is
great, and if there is not some give to the
pround no jumper can bland the strain.
Tho nest batt figures at the running two
hops and a jump are 4 ft. S in. by J. Pur
Fcll. and as a comparison it may bo men
tioned thRt Pursell holds tho world's ama
tour record for the running hop, step and

Schiffcnicin to Retire.
It is said that Schifferstcin has about
concluded to retire permanently, and al
though hw ambition for several years has
boon to lower tho running broad jump rec
ord it is now feared that ho will never be
equal to tho task. Strict training brings
trouble to his lungs, and although after a
long rest ho can stand considerable work
ho cannot onduro a siogo such as is neces
sary. The best record is 23 ft. 3 in., and
Schifferstein on one occasion came within
l Inch of it, and on anothor 14. inches.
H. E. Laurie, tho crack English bicyclist,
now in the United States to see what
honors ho can win, is a very well built
man, standing 5 ft. 8 in. tall, and weigh
ing 1G3 pounds in racing costume. He has
not boon on the path long, but has mada
somo unusual records. His latest feat was
at tho royal games at P.uldington in the
presence of tho Prince and Princess of
Wales, when ho broko all the records on a
safety machine from ono to ten miles,
doing tho latter distance in 27m. 33 2-5s.
Ho is at Lynn, Mass., whero he will train
on account of tho fine track there.
The new road improvement bill lately
passed by the stato of Massachusetts has
caused much favorable comment by the
many bicycle clubs in that state. Manv of
those clubs have passed a-vote of thanks to
several senators who took an active part
In favor of tho bill.
An order recently passed by the com
missioners of Druid Hill park, Boltimorc,
compels wheelmen to give the road to all
horsed vehicles by turning to the right,
and not more than two wheelmen shall
ride abreast. The penalty for violating
either of these ordinances is a fine of 3.
THE PRODUCTION of an abundant
growth of hair, of a silk-hke texture
nnd of tho original color, often results
from the use, by those who have become
bald or gray, of Ayer's Hair Vigor :
" I was rapidlv becoming gray and
bald ; but after using two or thrco
bottles of Aer's Hair Vigor my hair
grew thick and ploy aud the origi
nal color was restored- M. Aldnch,
Canaan Centre, N. 11.
" A trial of Ayer's Hair Vicor has con
vinced mo of its merits. Its use has
net only caused the hair of my wife and
daughter to be abundant and glossy, but
it has given my rather stunted mus
tache a respectable lencth and appear
ance." K. Brittou, Oakland, Ohio.
" I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for
the pat four or five years and liud it a
most satisfactorv dressing for the hair.
ItL all that I could desire, being harm
less, cauMiig tho hair to retain its
natural color, and requiring but a small
miantitv to n-ndr the hair easy to ar
range.' Mrs. M. A. Bailey, 9 Charles

in 18S4, when ho lod that team in the offi
