Inst nltfht the farmyard champions were
crowing out the old year In one discordant
urimon t'n IhhUId of tho Clitrden. It

lmd knew that Vnther 'I lino had rut an
other notch on the eternal vot.1. for they
did their best toward theilln. I ndoiibtedly
tho most passive bipeds at tho kIiow were
the swans, the two kinds shown belne the
whl.tllne and Pcwlcks. Whether It was
the work of 4imn practical Jo!.cr or fuNn

sexes hum; around tho enuen where the
swans wuro ein'hwed 'l'hev watched every
movement of tho birds ntid stayed around
In front of the imkcp till a late hour 1'lnally
some one nrouiul asked one of thu crowd why
they wnti'hed the mviiii m persistently,
when one .ild' "ftVru '.Milting to hear
the whltllnc one do a swan souk We
were told," the jrlrl added, "that they ting
once a ear on the lal ila and that the
oinf Is vry mournful and beautlftd, o
we thought It was better to have It to say

i:rly in the day word went round the
fiarden that a number of the Ithode Island
Heds would be shipped to I'.urope for the
ue of breeder who Intend to otnbllh
th" breed ahroad. Consentient y the depart
. inent occupied by the birds attracted a cal
lery all day. and those In charire of ihe
V evhlbits were liuiy nuswerinir nuestinn
as to how the breed was deeloped. One
V put It tersely that It was an old fashioned
nroed under a new cover and that old sea
I captains and travellers to foreign lands
were responsible lorthe breed It was
said that the dois now and attain would
rr ne some torus irotn oilier lands, such
n .Malays, and cross them with the home
hitds and that more by chance than anv
nientlrlc method the Heds were devef
0ed When It was found what particular
cros produced the correct hue the breed
ers stuck to it It was by rereverjne
on these lines that this valuable breed was
ma de popular
In the different classes the blue ribbons
wete pretty well distributed, but whatever
advniitase there whs rested with Lester
lompklns of Concord, .Mass. His pullets
were found to be the best, and In the single
tomb and rose comb classes he earned
the blue In other classes he sained four
ecvomls, three thirds, three fourths and
fle fifths. The other eihibltors to score
rftectlvcly were Watson Wcstfnll. Henry
K Cheeseboroush. Kaufman and Wind
helm, the Hed Keather Karm, Old Acres,
William Phillips. .lr.. and J. U Dude A Co.
I.leht classes of Anconas held their own
with the fanciers, and during the week they
were never short of crowds around the
raires Five of the blues fell to the lot of
H C Sheppard of Berea, Ohio, and it was
notable that in the class of rosecorobs. be
secured all the ribbons for the cock, hen,
cockerel and pullet. In the ordinary class
of Ancona hens he gained a first, fourth
and fifth. The other breeder to score
were Krank W. Mains of Morris Plains.
N. ! . in two classes, and H. M. Bedford
of Strongsrllle, Ohio, In one class.
A very Interesting breed shown were
the American Dominlriuce, and the honors
were divided between I). Skerrlt of L'tlca,
X. V , and W. 11. Davenport of Colerain,
It was officially announced that the at
tendance was the best In the history of the
Crew mil Soon nesln Work on Machine)
In New Doathotue.
New Have.v, Dec. 31. The crew candi
dates will be put to work tn the Yale boat
house the coming week, instead of as In
years past spending several weeks on the
machines In the Yale Gymnasium This
change of plan has been made possible by
the new boathouse, which will be opened
for the first time next week.
In developing her varsity crew this year
ale is up against the problem of breaking
In practically a green crew. There are but
three veteran oarsmen from the crew of
toil) in college, Capt. Krost, who rowed bow,
an Sinderen at No. 3 and Buckingham at
No a Of these only two, Krost and Vji
Sinderen, are certain to try for a place In
this year's boat, as Buckingham did not
do any rowing last fall.
It Is understood that an innovation will
be tried in the removal of Tan Sinderen
from the starboard side of the boat, where
he rowed last year, to the stroke position.
Capl I'rost will probably retain his old seat
at how, and the other positions in the boat
will be filled by men from last year's four
oared and freshman crews.
Many former Yale oarsmen are In favor
01 giving me crew men more cnanre to
try out with other college crews and de
velop before the rac-e at New London.
According to one, former crow man who
rowed in two victorious crews, Yaie would
never think of sending a football team
onto the gridiron to meet Harfard that had
not been developed by games with other
colleges, and Ihe same policy could be tried
with rowing with equally beneficent reBiilts.
A Yale rnwlne Milvisnrv i(immiltM ,n.
fjsrlng of Julian W Curtlss -70, chairman;
H.iKoy Whitney, 'r,S W A. Wodell. U,
will take In charge rowing affairs this year.
I his committee has just been selected by
apt rrost to work with him In developing
among ale graduates added interest in
this sport and In looking after the boating
ptoiwrty Ihe committee will nlso decide
iiiest ons or boating policy, and will plan for
I'uis'iie rates n wile nnaiiy consents to row
other colleges than Harvard.

opportunity. The same complete showing of new
models will be there, the same unique display of record
winning aeroplanes, filling an entire floor; the same

Highest development of the motorcycle.
Not a cheapening of the automobile.
The Motorette is as reliable, as well built, and as efficient as any
high priced motor car
Except for excessive speed it is as capable. (25 miles an hour
With it is achieved more than ever before, the ultimate aim of all
practical motor car builders
Low cost of maintenance and operation.
The most radical change in
Motordom this year
It ii the first successful three-wheel motor car. Knox and Duryea
in America ; Boille' , Bcnz and Damlier in Europe started with
thi idea. They saw the immense saving in a three-wheel car.
Uniunnountablc difficulties which they met in the solid under frame,
tildng of the rear wheel, short wheel base, etc. have been over
come in the Motorette by means of a mechanism called a stabilizer.
It is just as high grade in its construction as a $6,000 automobile.
With it the old hindrance to motor car ownership cost of main
tenance and operation is reduced to a minimum.
See it at the Grand Central
Palace Show all week
