Endurance Motor Run.
Of twenty-three motorcyclists who
started on the endurance run to Albany
and return from New York In the recent
test of the Federation of Motor Cyclists,
fifteen covered the 271 miles in excellent
time. The rules did not permit ma
chines to go faster than fifteen miles an
hour, nor were- they supposed to aver
age less than six miles an hour. Tho
preliminary figuring shows that five
men were tied for first honors, Includ
ing Walter Zelgler of Hartford, who
rode a 2 h. p. Columbia. He held close
to the schedule throughout and had no
trouble whatever with his machine.
Maine's Clever Sportswoman.
Maine possesses a sportswoman in the
person of Miss Ethel M. Russell of Au
gusta, Me., who Is in many ways with
out a peer. First and foremost she Is
thoroughly acquainted with the national
game and cannot only score a contest
perfectly, hut tell nil the fine points,
when the players should steal, whether
It Is the proper thing to sacrifice or line
out a hit. Miss Russell Is a splendid
type of outing girl tall, well propor
tioned, standing 5 feet 9 inches in her
stocking feet, and tips the scales at 155
pounds. She was graduated from Colby
In the cluss of 1900. While in college
Miss Russell was captain for two years
and the strongest player of the basket
ball team, and was prominent In other
sports as well. When croquet was en
joying its greatest popularity, this re
markable Maine girl won tournament
after tournament. She is a clever hand
ler of a pair of oars und often rows
eight or nine mile? at a time. As a base
ball player she stands pre-eminent; a
few years ago she organized a women's
baseball club Ln her birthplace, Weld,
Me., which was very successful. Miss
Rupsell went behind the bat and caught
a good game throughout the club's ex
istence, her throwing to second making
her the terror of would-be base stealers.
Billiard and pool playing are also on
this woman's list of accomplishments,
and has put to shame many a boastful
masculine wlelder of the cue when it
came to a question of pocketing the
Ivory balls or making difficult caroms
or masse shots. Miss Russell also plays
tennis and Home years ago kept her an
tagonists tolerably busy. Of late years
she has taken up golf.
As a pedestrian she has considerable
ability, thinking nothing of walking ten
or twelve miles. She is a rapid walker
and few, unaccustomed to long tramps,
can keep up with her. This twentieth
century outing girl can also box clev
erly, give and take punishment, climbs
the mountains nenr her home, goes
snow-shoeing for long tramps, and. in
fact, does most everything that can pos
sibly appeal to an athletically ambi
tious young woman. She was trained
and educated as a school teacher, which
calling she has practiced successfully,
her control of would-be bad boys being
Flanagan Breaks Record.
In the presence of fully 7000 specta
tors, who attended the Gaelic athleti -
tournament for the benefit of the Chris
tian Brothers' Trninlng college, at
Clontarf, Dublin, Ireland, which was
held at Celtic Park, Long Island City,
John J. Flanagan of the Greater New
York Irish Athletic association, in
creased his world's sixteen-pound hammer-throwing
record from 171 feet 9
inches to 173 feet. Ho also threw the
5G-pound weight a distance of 36 feet 4
Inches, which is within five Inches of
his world's record with that weight.
These two performances were recorded
in the all-round weight-throwing con
test, which also Included throwing the
discus and putting the 16-pound shot.
The points scored were live for first,
throe for second and one for third plate,
ln each of the four events, and Flana
gan won with a total of fourteen points.
Myer Prlnstein, formerly of Syracuse
university, and now of the Greater New
York Irish A. A., ran n close fourth in
the one-quarter-mile run, starting from
scratch, und also distinguished himself
' In the board Jump handicap, clearing 23
feet 3 Inches, which only gave him third
place in that event, as he was conced
ing 26 Inches to D. Frank, the wlnnr,
and 12 Inches to J. D. Weber, who got
the second prize.

TO PREACH GOSPEL. II
NEW YORK, Aug. 5. Bad Bill Dah- II
len, the Giants' shortstop, who earned
nis soonquot oy mynau kicks, not 10 HH
say assaults on the umpire, has decided 111
to quit the game and take up evange- HI
llstlc work. Since the beginning of the
season Dahlen'a team mates noticed on
trips west a cadaverous looking man
who would hardly let Dahlen out of his
sight. At the same time Bad Bill was fl
receiving letters begging him to join Ifll
the church, abandon the Sunday dese- SH
cration and give up hall playing entire- flH
ly. The writer assured him that ho iiiH
would find him another job, not so lu- hI
cratlve, but much more satisfactory to flH
the soul. He implored Dahlen to use H
his influence with the other men and a H
quoted scripture to show that the V H
Giant shortstop was cut out for the B H
particular work of missionary among I H
ball players. j H
Dahlen was at first amuGed, then an-
gry. then showed the epistles to his 1 H
team mates, alluding to the author ln f I
ribald language. It was noticed, how- ffl
ever, that he kept the letters, and when I
alone read and reread them. Gradually j H
he became morose, would hardly talk I
to anyone, and while on the train sat I H
by himself, never Joining in the discus- H
sion of the game. H
Yesterday Dahlen informed Manager (ml
McGraw that he Intended to quit base- 111
ball Immediately for his new field, and II
the little manager almost fainted. He ill
Implored Dahlen to remain with him for ill
the rest of the season. Dahlen, It js w
said, has assented. ill
