Musket was originally Imported to Aus
tralia, from England.
It was thougiiL at the time, by the
shrewd Britishers that he was ot little
or no account, but he proved to be the

has time been a demand both In England
and this country for the Musket blood.

What would undoiiliredly'bp the athletic

between M. F. Sweeney, holder of the
world's high Jump record, feet r. n-8
Inches, and J F. Ityan, who holds the Euro

well known that such a meeting Is Swce

modest to anticipate a victory, he feels
coulldent that the winner woukl have

Sweeney, who does most of hiB training

At the present writing tlie Plttsb'trE
baseball club Has no, less than :hlrt-oue
plaM-rs, ami Manager M.iek has not been
heard from ror several days. He may have
lauded a lew more on the quiet. Just
what the dub proposes doing with all this
It has been rumored that the Intention
is to take a franchise in one of the minor
leagues apd use this as a sort or tialning
school, but when questioned on this point
President Kerr declines lo make any p,I
tlve stnteiueuts. Tlie plan has been tried
by Presldeut Brush, the owner of the
Cincinnati and Indtanniiolis clubs, who
has made mouey out of liotti teams.
1L ll.lellL not Isl a nan Idea Tor llm I'llls-
burg club to place a teaiu In the proposed
Central League. It could be nin at a
small cost, and the management siuld al
ways have a number or young players to
rail back on in case or injury lo members
or the league dub. The central circuit has
not been completed, and President Kerr
could no doubt get a rrancbiso ror tho
asking. Last year the rittsburg club paid
out no small amount of cash for young play
ers who were stars in the very minor
leagues, and some of them have panned out
quite satisfactorily. This being the case,
the owners of the club could save money,
perhaps make a little, by conducting thPlr
own training school. '
For several years it has been Uie custom
forsomeof thebest American riders tospend
tlie summer season riding on European
tracks and scooping In roreign golil. but
next year, according to rumors from Paris,
this will be reversed, and Protln, the fastest
sprinter Iu all Europe, and probably other
well-known riders with him, will make tliu
trip to this country for the same purpose.
Protln, It Is said, lias written to two Amer
ican rirms, asking to beallowed to ride tnelr
wheels tor a consideration and one Wisit-
em rirm has nude an orfer. iris not prob
able that Banker will leave America, next
season, so the prospects for a fast pro
fessional colony are bright. While Johnson
may go abroad to race Michael, the Welsh
man, Banger, Tyler, Berlo, Starbuck and
the thousand and one other riders for rcmii
will remain to make things interesting'
here and elsewhere.
It is regrettable lhat cross-country run
ning is not better supported in this coun
try, as It is one of the most enjoyable
and healthful exercises. In England manv
football players, cyclists, sprinters, and
other athletes have an ocaional slow
run, which keeps them In condition
through the winter, so that when they
start hard training in the spring they are
lo a measure prepared for it.
Those athletes who rest entirely from
the end of the flat racing season to the
beginning of the next always find the
first few weeks ot training very irksome
and severe. Many English clubs offer
special prizes -for the first footballer, cy
clist anil novice, and also a prize to the
club with the largest muster. Another
pleasant feature In connection with the
sport l the smoking concerts which on
ually follow the runs and arc generally
attended by many old cross-country run
ners who still like to Identify themselves
with their favorite jlastiroe.

The play Illustrates official and social lire

on the stage, and others have r.iil.si. It
remained ror Mr. Carlt ton's talents to place

ecretary of State, aud after refusing Ihe
Department as to the policy or the United
States on the Cnban revolution, he Is urged
to be their leading candidate ror the Presi

seen to better advantage. His supporting
company Is exceptionally strong, including,

Annie Russell. Jean Clara Walters. Ethel
Browning, Estellc Mortimer. George Faw
