Ashland, Va., April 7.?In the dual
meet here yesterday, Frudurlcksburg
I won over Ashland by a count of 112 to
I TS. There were many Interesting fea?
tures In spite of the one-sided score,
among widen were the good running of
Sale, of Frederiskeburg, and the spec
tacular finish of Lancaster, of Ash?
land, In the senior relay, when he over?
came a lead of about forty yards, and
won the event by about two feet. Tho
all-round work of Fredcrlcksburg was
good, Ashland surpassing only in the
tield events. The medal winners were
Sale and R. Rowe, of Fredcrlcksburg,
and D. Lancaster, of Ashlnnt'.
it is due Ashland to say that the;
school here Is not near as largo as
Frcdorlcksburg. Consequently the per?
formance of those from the city upi
the roart was of a higher class, having j
.so many men to select a team from.

So many applications have been re.

be pulled off In some huge building
capable of peatlng upward:) of 1,000
