A new game has been Introduced at Chi
cago It is called "'Royal Cycling." Its
merit lies ill that it takes a cool head,
good generalship, good judgnieut and
good riding to play it successfully.
The game Is an entirely new creation
and four teams, two ot men and two of
women arc now being trained to give it
a public start. If it proves interesting,
exhibitions will be given in all of the
It tenures a field 300 feet long and 100
feet wide Tins is divided in the center
by an alley, forming a right and left field.
A team occupies each field. A. single
cycle wheel with a broad pneumatic tire
Is placed upright in the alley-way. The
principle ot tl.egame is to drive this wheel
through attacks of opponents toscore lines.
Hiding courses are laid out, and the players
keep within tlicsc courses, always circling
to the left and constantly moving.
DRIVING THE WI1EEL
The alleyway Is constructed of netting
forming two upright rides, between vililclj
the wheel Is placed. The uetllng is atiout
fifteen inches high, and exposes the upper
part of the wheel, -which is to be (.truck
or pushed by the players. Cycle foils
or Ingle-slicks are used for driving.
The object !s to elriv c the wheel forward
through the attacks of opponents? In
starting the game the wheel is placed m
the alleyway at center field. At a given
signal both teams start from center field
In opposite directions and circle back- to
the starting point to begin the battle, to
drive the wheel toward the opponent's goal
or hold it against attacks.
Lower goal is directly ahead for the
right f'eld team and upper goal directly
ahead for the left field team.
Tlie line between center fields represents
center ami if Hie wheel goes over either
way it counts two for the team sending
It over. Lines between the upper and
lower feoals r present half goals and back
tackle, and driving toward the goal rep
resents half goal and counts five.
Driving luck toward center field rep
resents back tackle and counts three. The
alley way div ides at upper and lower fields,
forming right and left pockets for the wheel
to be run into. These pockets represent
goals and home fields. Goal counts ten;
bomeficld, four; half goal, fire; back tackle,
three, and center field, two
CRITICAL POINT Or THE-GAME.
The most critical and lutcrcsting part
of the game is reached at half goal and
and at goal division lines, doubling up
on the score by working the wheel back
ward and forward at half goal, counting
five to three, or, if the time is short,
the losers may close the inning by com
bining forces and rushing the wheel
backward Into home field, scoring four
points and preventing opponents making

minutes are allowed for intermissions.
The game can be played by any number

THEY WON HEAVILY.
The bookies had only a fairly good day,
as thre-e favorites anil two second choices
1 inded the coin. They won hiiivily on the
opening race, but were scorched on Hie
third and fifth, which went to Joycuse
The hottest kind ot a tip was on Sails in
the opening race. It-was reported that
he ran rings around Mid Roe- In his work,
but he certainly did not chow himself apjhlc
of doing any lull g when asked to race.
He closed a T to 5 chalice, but at the
finish had to be content with third place;
being beateu out by both Harry Rhodes and
Gallatin outclassed the field that he met
in the fecond race ami went to the liost a
1 to 3 chance. Of the others Reel Star
and Pruice Klamath were moet fancied and
were quoted at sixes.
Gallatin had the rail and taking com
mand on the first turn was never headed.
Little Bender kept at him all the way unci
taking no chances won easily at the end by
a length and a half.
The third race was a very funny lciting
affair. FIrtt Joyeusu and then O'Hearii
had the call, their priccB going from eveu
money up to 3 to 1. with surprising quick
ness. When they went to the post O'Hearn
was favorite at even money with Joycuse
at 5 to 2.
Before they were off, however, It was
Just the opposite; Joycuse had the call and
O'Hearn was a 2 1 2 to 1 chance.
Joyeuse beat the flag and was never
caught, winning p J lied up by five lengths
from O'Hearn, with Annie T. third.
Notwithstanding the fact that Herndon
had been pulled every time he started fer
tile past niQiith the books made Inni a hot
favorite. He Justified tho betting by go
ing out in the van and winning all the way
from I) on as L, with Peter Jackson third.
Both Joiinny and Hnrry Kelster were
heavily plaed in the fifth raee, the former
closing at even money, with Ke-!terat.'I to 1.
Panic made the- running until well into
the stretch, where Johnny went to the
front and won somewhat cleverly from
Humming llird, with Kcister third.
The closing race furnished a pretty head
finish between Vent and Grand PrI'C.
Grand TrK, who was the favorite, cut
out the running ami was only beaten In the
last jump by Vent. Foundling was a good
third, a length away.

Tilt' Chiiiiiplop Will Play Hero on
There is probably no better way to find
out the exact condition of the champion
pugilist, Corbett, than to see him In a
baseball game. This opportunity will
be given the public next 'I uesday at Na
tional Park, where the champion will
play with the crack amateurs ot this
town. His agility, running power, and
wind will be tested to the utmost.
The game itself promises to be a first
class one, as the makeup of the teams
would Indicate. The team Corbett and
his brother are to play with will include
Gilroy, Barrows, Klelnschmldt, Dicken
son, Wi-ner, Tuller, and Havens; while the
Bureau of Engraving and Printing team
will have out its regular men, and as the
latter have notlost a game this season,
they will try hard to keep up their record.
William J. Betts will umpire the game.
Corbett will appe.tr on His field promptly
at 4 p in., and commence exercising, and
the game will start at 1:15 p. in. Jim
is a great lover of baseball, and the game
will be more in the order of sport than
work for him.

The location for the takeoff for the

NEW BOWLING RULES.
The American Bowling Congress, which
met in New York during the latter part of
the past week, thoroughly overhauled al
most every rule governing the game of ten
pins and some material changes were made
Rule 9 was radically changed. It
changes the game from tlirce halls to each
frame to two balls, but in no way inter
feres with the present very satisfactory
method of scoring.
Locally, a howling league is again spoken
of. but from present indications there will
be several changes in the make-up of that
body from hist year's league. It Is not
altogether certain that the C. A. C. will be
a member of any bowling league this sea

may apply for admission to Hie league, and
among them are the teaim from the Wash

upon the status, present and future, of the
club, met with most gratifying success; in
deed, much bevond the expectations of the
majority. It Is, ami certainly could not
