Rydc, Aug. 16. Mr. Howard Gould's
Taclit Niagara started in a race to-day, but
went aground on tho Ryde Bandhead, and
for some time it was impossible to float her.
The Britannia,' Atlsa, Hester, Corsair,
Carina and Caress, forty-raters, and the
Niagara and Isolde, twenty-raters, started
to-day to race from Uvde, around the Isle
of Wight, about fifty.mlle8, for the prizes
offered by the commodore of the Royal
Victoria Yacht Club, a cup and a Eecond
prize of 40 to go to a yacht of a different
class to the winner of the cup.
Tho Ailsa was the first to get across, fol

The Britannia had the weather berth. The
Corsair and the Isolde (40-raters) were
the last to go away. The wind, which
was from tho soullitast, was very light.
The yachts were sent away to the east

as soon as possible a steamer was sent to
her assistance. She stranded in a good

and consequently she was at no time in any
danger. A tug got a line to her before she
had been aground long and pulled her off
with little difficulty. She at once camo

stated thnt'tbe Niagara was in the lead
when she struck. Ho had used the lead a

and found three and one-half fathoms.
She struck with a bard bump and remained
fast for half on hour. She sustained no
damage. Capt. Barr further 'stated that
he thought that lnsuch weather as prevailed
to-day, the Niagara would have bad a good
chance of winning the first prize.

The non. Frank JJ. Holland, mayor of
Dallas, is probably one of the most innocent
men on earth.
"I have never seen a glove contest or a
horse race and I have never been In a gam
bling house in my life," said he tile o4her
dayarSt. LouU. "Ihavenothinglncommon
with the sporting element, but I do believe
that the tuiulug boxing contests in Dallas
V. ill be a great benefit to our city and to the
Stale of Texas."
This, coming from a church member and
a man of Holland's standing in his owncom
nlty, should give a rair idea ot the way the
wind is blowing. He continued: "It is be
cause I believe the contest between Fitz
simmons and Corbett will benefit Texas that
I favor Jt. It will bring thousands or vis
itors to our State, and once they come, they
will be struck with the natural advantages
we have to offer and will do much forus.
"There will lie no law against the contest,
and It will be beld. Gov. Culberson, It Is
true, has Issued a proclamation against the
contest, but nrter September 1 thtre will
be no law prohibiting a glove contest in
Texas. The governor knows this. I will
say that I know the governorwell, and he
will not fall to do his duty and carry outthe
law as It stands on the statute book on the
day of the contest, but as after Bcptember
1 a glove contest will be legal, upon thepay
nieut of a $C00 license fee, the governor
will have no law against the contest to en
force. "I was surprised to-day to bc'called upon
by leading business men of St. Louis, who
staled that they Intended to witness the
bout, and requested me to put them on the
police force, so they could attend, unrecog
nized. I shall accommodato some of them,

The fishermen , and there are lots of them
hereabouts, are In their glory. Never In
tho history of this sport In these parts
has It been so delightful, or so productive
of gratifying results as at the present. So
savs Harry McCnrniick, and he knows. It
Is said that what Mr. McCormick does not
know about fishing and gunning around

Mr. McCormick declare,! that never has
the fact tiiat a law should be enacted that
would prohibit the taking of fish during
the spawning season from May 1 to June
10 been so forcibly Illustrated as tho
present condition of the sport Illustrates it.
For about three weeks during the recent
spawning season, the water was mudd;
and not suitable for fishing. Nature pro
vided Uie protection of tho finny ones
that the law should have furnished. There
was little or no fishing done during their
muddy spell, -and thousands of bass that
would have been taken had the conditions
been different, were left to produce. When
it Is considered that a female brings forth
at cadi spawning an innumerable number
ot young flMi, the present plentiful sup
ply of bass and other choice species so
tempting to every lover of this sport Is
Everywhere fishing is now good and hun
dreds are out with rod and line every day,
and all meet with unprecedented success.

thirty -seven bass. The largest one weighed
Home Ul'perman caught fourteen Just
b"lov Point ot Rocks on the came day,
tho biggest one of bis string weighing four
and three-quarter pounds. John Kennedy
went to Sir John's Run and In three days
bagged forty eight beauties with the fly.
Joe Enuantrout, at Sycamore Island,
caught eleven fine bass and a rock fish
that weighed three and a quarter pounds.
Gus. Keyser and W. D. Chadwick caught
twenty-three bass in two days at Seven
Kocks, Just above Sycamore Island. John
II. Hunter has been enjoying himself nt
Great Falls for the past week, and he had
most gratifying luck. C. Finn Keys and
Edward Droop made a big catch at Seven
Rocks, among the rest being two black
bass that weighed four pounds each.
W. D. Chadwick and Mr. McCormick tried
! new fishing plan at 'Sycamore Island
last Saturday night. Tbey went out after
1 1 o'clock and got thirteen bass with spoon
and fly. This, Mr. McCormick cays. Is the
first time this sort of tackle has been used
by moonlight, and the success of the ex
jicriment vt ill no doubt prompt many to try
It. The largest of the thirteen fish weighed
four pounds; the cmallest one two and a
half jiounds. This, Mr. McCormlek thuiks,
is pretty good evidence that big fish feed
at night, and that It accounts for the poor
fishing in the daytime during the moonlight

A New York Man Kills a Venomous
Serpent I nil Fair Fight.
Van Hess, of Cannonsville, had an ex
citing fight with a rattlesnake the other
day, and though the snake was killed.
Van will not forget his experience,
says a correspondent ot the New York
He and several others were sitting on
tho back porch ot George Seymour's place
when he sa w the tall grass moving in the
"There goes a- snapping turtle," said
Van. "I'll get him, and we'll cut the
honored name of Hess in his starboard
Suiting tho action, to the word, he
skipped over the fence and was soon along
side of the body which was moving the
grass. Then the grass stopped moving, and
so diil Van. An instant later he was
coming back to the store on a run, and from
the looks ol his face the others knew be
had run up against a rattler. These snakes
a.iru u-cii very plentiful In this section
tills season and have shown fight whenever
But Van was game, and, when the
boys began to guy him, said he'd kill
that snako with his bare hands. Going
Into the 6tore he pulled on a pair of high
boots and took the largest sponge in tbe
place. Willi this for arms he returned to
the snake, while the rest or the-1'boys"
canieaIong nt a safe distance behind
to watch the fun.
The snake was moving off as Van again
approached, but, at the disturbance, with
a rattle he "set" for fight. Tho aDgry
head, which wasswaylnghlghinthegrass,
gave evidence that the reptile was a big one,
and the continued rattling showed that ho
wan angry in proportion to his size.
Van's nerve was shaken a little, but
he advanced slowly toward the snake,
holding the sponge at arm's length.
The snake drew its head further back to
strike, and as Van shoved the big sponge
at it, suddenly struck its fangs deep into
Its peculiar meshes. Tho effort was a
surprise to the snake, and with diffi
culty it released Its fangs as Van backed
A second time the sponge was pushed
at the snake, and the head again shot
forward harder than before. Before it
could release the fangs Van caught the
swelling neck close to the bead with his
right band and squeezed with all his
power. The snake uncoiled, and as Van
shoved the head to the ground, sponge
and all, and placed, one big boot on it,
the twisting, squirming tail settled around
his leg in a grip that made Van yell with
One of the other boys, encouraged -by
Van's wonderful dsplay ot coollness, ran
to his aid, and with a big Jack-knife sev
ered the head where Van's boot held It.
The body was untwisted from Van's leg,
and when straightened" out by tbe head,
tbe body was found to measure, five feet
and one Inch. An Investigation showed
that the fangs of the snake were still
entangled in the sponge.
Van's method clearly established his
reputation as a snake hunter, and be
wears the nine rattles on his vest as a
souvenir of the encounter.
