games at Athens. Following is n
continuation of tho report.
Tho long distanco racos from

followed by tho mossongcra cen

defeat of tho Persians, wa8 won
by Louis, a Grook peasant, and
his victory was greeted with
thunders of applause aud shouts
and cries from tho Stndion and
surrounding hills, that betokened
tho Wild enthusiasm ho had awak
ened in the breasts of his country
men. This victory has done much
to soothe tho disappointment felt
by tho Greeks at tho downfall of
somo of their champions.
In this event thoro wore twenty
competitors, including Arthur
131ako of tho Boston Atholetio
Association. lie was not ablo to
run tho twonty-six miles and fell
out. When tho winner crossed

out tho country, and in many
towns tho victory was joyously
celebrated. Tricoupis, ono of tho
Grook competitors, was exhausted
by his exertions, and is now pros
trated. Tho prize, in addition to an
olivo wreath, is a haudsomo cup
given by M. Braal, a woll-kuown
French savant and writer on
mythological subjects. Tho timo
