SACRAMENTO SPORTING.
Marysville Pisreon-Shoot—
and Anglers.
SACRAMENTO, Cal., May 24.— "N0;
we were not in it,'" said one of Sacramento's
crack shots as he savagely bit off the end
of bis cigar and applied the gas : jet to the
other. "We simply struck the hottest
combination of the season at the Marys
ville trap-meet. Why, clear scores would
not take anything, because when one
t dropped everything in sight three or four
f ethers would do the same trick, and it
ended up in division of pool money, and
no one would be ahead. But, say!
talk about shooting and crackajacks and
all that, I never attended such a dead-hard
shoot in my life before, and never saw
such universally good scores. But we had
a royally good time if San Francisco did
rapture the medal and the majority of the
stuff.*'
tn the medal shoot J. H. Durst, A. J.
Webb and Ed Fay tied, each killing twelve
,-trai;:ht pigeons, and in the shoot-off at
s-ix birds Fay killed ihera- all, scoring
eighteen straight and walking off with the
medal.
A number tied on second money, George
Witrt'iibrock of Sacramento being our only
■ fermentative to draw down a slice in the
tii vide.
The Spoonbill Gnn CJub will hold its
.'ifth prize shoot of the season to-morrow,
and a good day's sport is expected.
The Fish Commissioners are planting

During the week io.OOO young Dolly
Varden trout passed through^ Sacramento
for their future home in the dark-blue
waters of Lake Tahoe. Twenty thousand
youngsters have been placed in the head
waters of the Feather River, where there
is every prospect of their prospering
greatly. As soon as some responsible man
ran he found in Placerville to receive them
a shipment will be made to that place.
On the river the fishermen are complying
with the provisions of the law, as they are
extremely afraid of Game Warden Helms.
There are reports abroad that lish are

SPORT NEAR VISALIA.
A Club That (s Accomplishing Ex
cellent Service.
VISALIA, Cat-.. May 24.-About two
years ago the Visalia Sportsmen's Club
was organized with a membership of
about ten. During the next six months
its members numbered over 100, and it
was incorporated with M. L. Weaver as
president and A. R. Orr vice-president, J.
Sub Johnson secretary and L. C. Hyde
treasurer.
Since its organization the club has re
ceived from the State Fish Commissioners
and planted in the tributaries of the
Kaweah River about 175,000 young trout,
which are doing nicely at present and
promise to make the river one of the finest
trout streams in the State.
The club has also procured some Mon
golian pheasants which are breeding in
confinement, and as soon as a sufficient
number of them can be had for stocking
purposes they will be turned loose in Se
quoia National Park.
During the summer of 1894 the club, with
V'heassistauceof Lieutenant Dean, caught
and delivered to the State Fish Commis
sioners of ban Francisco twenty-four golden
or Mount Whitney trout, for "the purpose
of propagation and planting in the public
. waters of the State. The club is now ne
gotiating with parties in Texas, who have
agreed to furnish twenty pairs of wild tur
keys which it proposes to turn loose in the
National Park.
During the month of April, at which
time it was necessary to appoint a game
warden, the Board of Supervisors refused
to consider the question on the grounds of
economy, but the club secured the services
of one of its members and had him ap
pointed to serve without compensation.
In regard to the golden trout of Mount
Whitney, J. Sub Johnson of Visalia re
ceived on May 10 the following letter from
the secretary of the Fish Commission :
San Fkancisco, Cal., May 9, 1895.
J. Sub Johnson. Visalia, Cal.— Deaf. Sir: We
are very sorry to announce to yon and the gen
tlemen of your club tbat about ten days ago
the golden trout at our Sisson hatchery began
to show signs of distress and since then have
all died, except two, and they evidently are
afnictpfl with the same trouble. We have had
Dr. Gilbert of Stanford University examine
dead specimens, and he has been unable to de
termine the cause of death.
They were fat and full of spawn and milt.
They have no parasites. We are at an absolute
loss to explain the trouble, and can offer no
explanation. We feel the loss most severely,
and would have gladly given up all oar other
fish to have saved these beautiful tish that your
club went to so much trouble and expense in
getting. Had the fish lived one month longer
we would have had several thousand eggs. Be
so kind as to inform your club of the loss of
these golden trout, and oblige yours respect
fully. California Fish Commission.
On the 16th inst. Secretary Fletcher of
the Fish Commission wrote to S. L. N.
Ellis of the Visalia Sportsman's Club, stat
ing that the Commissioners were exceeding
ly loth to give up trying to propagate the
golden trout, and that no effort will be
spared by the commission to assist the
sportsmen of Visalia in procuring another
assignment ; the letter concludes as follows :
"We shall be glad to do what we can to get
the army officers in command here to write
and qujeken the pulse of the superinten
dent of the National Sequoia Park on the
fish question."
SPORT NEAR UKIAH.
Some Favorite Streams In Mendo
ctno County.
UKIAH, Cal., May 21.— The angling
season is now in the noontide of its glory.
The Adirondacks in New York and the St.
Lawrence in Canada may afford sport and
outings on wider and more expensive acale
than our own fair Russian River, but no
6pot anywhere that we have read of can
compete with the charming spots of Men
docino County, or the sport to be had for
the same comparatively trifling expense
of time and money. The coast part of the
county, where the settlements are but an
hour or two apart and overlook the restless
Pacific, is simply a succession for 125 miles
of interesting places for the outing sports
man in any phase of character or in the
pursuit of any kind of pleasure.
Such streams as afford all the heart can
desire coastwise are the Gualala, forming
the boundary between Sonoma and Men
docino counties; the Garcia, near Point
Arena, the king of them all; Brush Creek,
at Manchester • Alder Creek and Elk Creek ;
but a few miles north, the Navarro, the
wondrous Navarro, that with its tributa
ries gives an area, affording the rarest of
sports, of at least 500 square miles; the
Albion, easily reached and with its basin
traversed with numbers of good roads;
Big River, with its outlet near Meudocino
City, on the ocean, and its source within
an hour of Ukiah; the Noyo, within a mile
of the city of Fort Bragg, and its numer
ous tributaries, spread well out through
virgin redwood forests, touching even the
M. B. Gibson of the Ukiah Sportsmen's
Club.
interior valleys and Ten-mile River, fur
ther north, which might, without stretch
of fact, be classed yet as "unexplored terri
tory"! Could ambitious sportsman or
angler, or those who desire perfect outing
pleasures, desire more?
As I said in a former sketch the field in
Mendocino County is dual— coast and inte
rior — the former having the characteristic
coast climate, the latter the characteristic
California climate modified to some extent
by its proximity to the ocean and interven
ing forest belt.
Here in Ukiah we are unusually favored.
In any direction we may go troutinp, and
besides fishing on the best of streams have
a picnic on its picturesque banks with
fresh trout on the bill of fare — dinner and
supper if desired — and return in ample
time to read the evening paper before bed
time.
On Sunday last Cold Creek was visited
by a jolly party from Ukiah, who pic
nicked the whole day on the banks of that
delightful stream. Four carriages in addi
tion to the occupants bad good things for the
feast under the trees. An icecream freezer
was a part of the pharaphernalia.
The party consisted of C. P. Smith,
chairman of our Board of Supervisors;
Mrs. C. P. Smith, Miss Mabel Smith, Miss
Jessie Crockett, Mrs. James Shattuck,
Misses Ida and Susie Harris, Miss Anna
Banks, M. B. Gibson, Deputy County Re
corder, and wife ; John Brown, R. H.
Delafleld of San Francisco and Marcus L.
Gibson.
Such outings are becoming numerous,
and scarcely a day passes that does not
find a party on some one of our beautiful
trout streams, enjoj-ing a picnic as well as
the sport. Nimhod.
The Ukiah baseball club met and easily
conquered the Hopland Club last Sunday
in a game played at Ukiah. The score
stood : Ukiahs 38, Hoplands 18.
LOS ANGELES SPORTING.
All About Wheeling and the* New
Upper Ten Club.
LOS ANGELES, Cal., May 24.—Ar
rangements have been made for a monster
lantern parade on the night of May 29 to
inaugurate the great bicycle meet, "to take
place here the following day. Invitations
have been sent to all the bicycle clubs of
Southern California to participate, and a
large number of wheelmen will respond.
Lanterns will be furnished free by the Los
Angeles Wheelmen's committee.
The great 25-mile invitation race at
Athletic Park last Saturday continues to
be the talk of the town. Fritz Lacey, who
won race, is, of course, "the biggest man
on wheels."- He is deserving of all the
praise be gets, having made the splendid
time of 1:03:7%, breaking the L. A. W.
record of 1 :04 :34 3-5. Muchs y muatby was
manifested for Godfrey Schmidt, for hardly
were things fairly under way before he
went plunging head first iuto a pile of tan
dems. Schmidt, before the start, stood
second favorite, the odds offered being on
Ulbricht, Schmidt and Hatton, in the
order named.
There was a good deal of disappointment
felt that Walter Foster, O. C. W.. San
Francisco, did not take part in it, but as
his riding in the circuit meet at Santa Bar
bara on May 15 proved him to be cut of
condition he was advised not to go in and
he kept out. Had he been in good fettle,
and had Castleman of Riverside also been
in it the race would have been more inter
esting even than it was.
The meet of the State circuit of the C. C.
R. C. did not come off at Pasadena last
Monday as programmed, so that the meet
at San Bernardino last Wednesday was the

second to be held. It was a great success
and the San Bernardinos are nighly elated
over it.
The Los Angeles Athletic Club is going
to put up a new building for its own use.
In describing the interior arrangements as
they will be the Pacific Field" save the
whole of the second, third and fourth floors
will be utilized by the club, and on the
top floor suites of bachelor apartments
will be fitted up. There will be 5000 feet
more floor space than the club has at pres
ent, and in the basement a commodious
wheel room and bowling alley will be con
structed, the former having room to ac
commodate 100 wheels.
"Scorchers" have been the cause of so
much trouble and so many accidents lately
on the business streets of the city that the
Los Angeles wheelmen have appointed a
committee to confer with the City Council
for their suppression.
Prospects are bright for the Santa
Monica road race having the largest entry
of the year, Chicago, possibly, barred.
There are 475 entries for it already.
The Spinning Club, the ladies' cycling
organization or Riverside, has "folded its
tent," and Riverside knows it no more.
An upper-ten club is the latest conceit
among the swell wheelmen of the city.
The intention is to organize on the Coun
try Club plan, after the style of riding and
coaching clubs in the Eastl Some twenty
of the leading society people are already
enrolled. It is intended to make it
awfully exclusive.
The local men are training as they never
trainea before for the big coming races.
One day this week Ulbricht did five miles
in 11:35, riding the first mile in 2:1214.
Two days after Will Jenkins worked out
two miles in 4:28. Godfrey Schmidt did
five miles v»ry prettily last week in 11 :44.
After the races are over on Decoration
day in this city the Los Angeles Wheelmen
intend doing the proper thing to their
visitors by an all-round entertainment
and smoker at the rooms of the club on
Spring street. President Teed of the City
Conncil will be master of ceremonies and
award all the prizes won.
A very pretty combination is on the
tapia. As Fritz Lacey won the twenty-five
mile race last Saturday Tim McAleer, the
present champion, will be obliged to race
Lacey or forfeit the championship. The
proposal is to make it a three-cornered con
test by injecting Emil XJlbricht into it All
wheelmen here are hopeful that the com
bination will materialize, as it would prob
ably prove the most interesting race ever
held in Southern California.
THE BAY CITY'S RACES.
The Entries and Handicaps of
Events to Be Run Deco
ration Day.
The Prizes Are Exceptionally Valu
able, and a Good Meet Is
Assured.
There is no doubt but that the Bay City
Wheelmen will hold one of the best bicycle
race meetings ever given in this City, at the
Central Park track next Thursday, Decora
tion day.
The eutrv list, which is herewith pub
lished, assures this. In it will be found
the names of the fastest cyclers here
abouts. From far-away Los Angeles W.
A. Burke and Casly Castleman have come
to compete with the northern flyers, and
they are known to be two of the best class
iJ men in California.
It will be seen that the prizes are of good
value. They were all bought for cash by
the club, and there are no donations, so
dear to the heart of many cluba holding
races.
The handicapping evidences some cau
tion on the part of jtiandicapper Smyth,
lest he be too hard pit the scratch men,
but withal is very good. The arrange
ment of the races in heats gives every one
a fair chance to get into the finals and win
either a first, second or third prize.

THE BAY DISTRICT RACES
Hymn Proved a Surprise Party
in the Six -Furlong
Handicap.
HER MAJESTY TO THE FRONT.
After a Hard Drive With McLlght
Shaw Landed Nephew Win
ner by a Head.
Few pencilers weighed in yesterday.
Johnny Coleman thought the over-night
rest would be beneficial to Quirt, and backed
her.
The win of Her Majesty, who runs "as 'ow
she loikes," proved rather costly to owner Van
Ness. She was bid up .^4OO over her entered
selling price by L. A. Legg.
Quite the contrary with genial George
Beardsley, trainer for White & Clarke, who
now owns Morven, for George, looking as fresh
as a basket of ripe melon peaches, always has
a ticket or two on his sprinter, whom he thinks
good enough to give Dr. Hasbrouck a rub If
"right."
Zeke Abrahams, so his friends say, refuses to
•watch a race in which Morven runs, but busies
himself studying up the pedigree of Senator
Mahoney, his speedy two-year-old. Zeke for
merly owned the once-erratio son of imp.
Cheviot, but sold him for $150 and a guarantee
that he would be held blameless in case the
horse killed any one.
At the conclusion of the third race, won by
Hymn, the judges questioned Weber and Lloyd
in regard to the sudden reversal of form shown
by their horse. They could not account for it,
as they backed him in his preceding race, but
Johnny Weber stated thathedid not bet a cent
on him yesterday. The horse once suffered in
jury in a railway accident and cripples are not
always reliable. It was certainly a sudden re
versal of form, but there have been many of
late that have passed unnoticed. As in all
other things, the golden twenties of the upper
ten held precedence over the copper pennies of
the lower five.
After the first race yesterday luck was
with the talent, and they kept the bookies
tiptoeing to keep on the right side of the
sheet. Two of the finishes were exciting
enough to cause a temporary suspension
of breath, and the card throughout was
above the average. Three first choices and
two outsiders were successful in pulling

The six- furlong handicap was one of the
best betting races of the day, and termin
ated in a big surprise. "With 89 pounds up
Arnette was considered a "moral," and
was heavily backed at 6 to 5 and even
money. Quirt, who ; has shown. signs of
being stale of late, received her usual sub
stantial backing at threes. Hymn's last
race was a poor one, but the price against
him, 7 to 1, looked tempting, and he .was
by no means friendless. Many, clubbing
bets were also made on the Australian
mare Joy.
Quirt followed by Hymn was the. order
away when the flag fell; but Arnette,
quickly running up from last place, took
Hymn's place, and she and Quirt raced
into the stretch heads apart. Lloyd now
began moving up with Hymn, and, passing
Quirt, soon had Jones hard at work on the
favorite. Fifty yards from the wire he
headed her, and passed the wire winner by
a neck. Quirt finished third. The six
furlongs were run in 1:14.
The opening race, a five-and-a-half
furlong dash, was taken easily ,by Rose
Clark, a 6 to 1 chance, who led all the way
and won easily by fourlengths. In a wild
drive the second choice, Nelson, ;. beat the
8 to 5 favorite, Venus, v out a length for
place. This was a poor betting" affair, the
talent evidently being at sea for a winner.
The ' inconsistent • running ■of Her
Majesty of late caused the very good price
of 11 to 5 being obtainable against her to
win the two-year-old race at ■ four and a
half furlongs. The heavy money went in
on Monitor, who was backed down from 7
to Ito9 to 2 at post. time. The Gypsette
gelding with an apprentice in the' saddle
receded in the betting to 15 and 20 to 1.
Edgemount was fairly well backed at fours,
and.Veva carried much stable money for
the place. v<
There was nothing in the race but the
favorite, for, getting away third, she
scampered to the front, and leading all the
way won by two lengths. Veva, well 'rid
den by Peters, downed Monitor a length
for the place.
There was no pronounced favorite in
the fourth race, a mile selling event, very
liberal quotations i being offered against
any of the starters. When the bell rung
the horses out, McLight and Nephew had
a; slight call in the books, both having
threes chalked against them. Tar and
Tartar and Rico were almost as well backed
at a slightly higher pi ice. .
"When Newell dropped his flag Shaw
went out in front with Nephew, with Rico
and Gussie hot after him. This was the
order at the half, but as they turned into
the stretch Weber : managed to get Mc-
Light into second position and Don Caesar
was third. What at one time = looked an
easy thing for Nephew proved quite the
contrary, for although Weber had con
siderable ground to make up, he rode his
mount so vigorously that opposite the
drawgate Nephew looked beaten. He
managed to last just long enough, how
ever, to win by a short head. Don Caesar
was a close third, about a length away.
The time was but ordinary, 1:42.
Morven, the 4 to 5 favorite, proved the
best of the lot in the last race, a rive-fur
long sprint over the inside toboggan-slide
course, winning handily by two lengths
from the second choice, McFarlane. Bole
dad, who ran an excellent race, finished a
good third, with 60 to 1 against him.

CRACK CRAFT TO RACE.
Two Big Yacht Regattas to Be
Sailed on the Bay Next
Week, ;
The Californlas to Run To-Morrow
and the Corinthians on
Thursday.
The California Yacht Club will hold its
first regatta of the season to-morrow, and
the club expects to make a very pretty
showing.
Twenty-five yachts have been entered,
and in the list are not a few swift craft.
The course selected is a good one, and
will give tne yachtsmen an opportunity of
showing the stuff in their vessels in wind
| for responsive letters from equally promi-
nent men and women in other lands.
Below is a letter that commends itself in
■ this spring month of May to every woman
in San Francisco. It was voluntarily writ-
ten to Wells, Richardson & Co. by a lady
| whose portrait, given above, is assurance
of her high character and honest disposi-
tion. She is a picture of womanly health.
She is Mrs. Robert M. Moore of Laporte,
Ind., and she writes:
"Please accept my heartfelt thanks for
the great good Paine's celery compound
has done me. Ido think that there can-
not be too much said in its favor. I was
completely run down a year ago, and had
the advice and attendance of two of the
best physicians in the town, who pro-
nounced my sickness nervous prostration.
I was treated by one for two weeks, and
| then went to another and at first he
seemed to help me, but after a while, in-
j stead of getting better I went from bad to
| worse.
"At the earnest solicitation of two of my
ward work. The yachts have been divided
into classes, according to their sailing
length.
In class A are the Seven Bells, Rover,
Edna, Thelma, Ripple and Mischief. Class
B has the largest crowd in the group, be- j
ing the Dolphin, Mascotte, Lillie V, Pil- j
grim, Xaro, Hope, Mignon, Surprise, j
Stranger, Sultana and Halcyon. In class I
C are the Major, Mirth, Whirlwind, Flash,
Olive, Corinne, Hazel and Topaz.
Class A consists of craft of 35 feet sailing >
length and over; clasa B, of yachts of 26 j
feet and under 35, and in class C is included [
vessels under 26 feet.
The course is across a iine drawn from j
the southerly pierhead, narrow-gauge ;
mole, to the most westerly breasting buoy, I
marked by a nag: thence to and around
Blossom Rock buoy, leaving same on the
port hand ; thence to and around a stake-
Doat anchored 4 1-16 nautical miles south
east, leaving same on port hand ; thence to
the finish across a line drawn from the
southerly pierhead to a stakeboat anchored !
ilue west 100 yards out. The preparatory
gun will be fifed at 12:55 p. m., and rive
minutes latpr class C will start. There will |
be a lapse of ten minutes between each
start, and the time of yachts will only be '
taken during- the ten minutes following
the starting"gun of each respective class.
The race will be governed by Seawanhaka ;
rules, except that in the computation of
time allowances mean length shall be !
taken instead of waterline length.
Prizes will be awarded to the winners in
each class, and a special prize will be given
to the yacht making the fastest time over
the course.
The tenth annual regatta of the Corin
thian Yacht Club will be held on next
Thursday over the channel course. This
is the most popular course on the bay for
yachtsmen, and the craft will be in view
from the San Francisco shore nearly all
the time during the progress of the'race.
There arc twenty-seven entries for the re
gatta, the yachts being classified as fol
lows :
37-foot class— All over 30 and not over 37
feet load water line— Harpoon, Thelma
Dawn, Nereid, Edna, Speedwell.
30-foot class— Over 25 feet and not over
30 feet —Freda, Naiad, Kara, Truant, Wave. :
25-foot class—Over 20 and not over 25
feet — Cupid, Secret, May, Mist, Belle. ■■
Mignon, Pinta, Fen Foilet, Narmah.
20-foot class— 2o feet and under— Ceres j
Cisn<*, Witch, Cornelia, Caprice. Iris and I
Venture.
It will be gratifying to consumers to
note that the quality of the baking powder
most generally in use in their kitchens,
the Royal, is confirmed by the highest
official authorities as altogether the beat of
any in the market.
children and a dear friend, who was very
much interested in my case, I commenced
j to take Paine's celery compound and took
j seven bottles, and am thankful to say that
|lam a well woman to-day. Considering
| the low state of health in which I was, my
cure has been pronounced wonderful. You
can uss this communication as you
! see fit."
For recovery from the effects of too con-
stant indoor work, worry, over-exertion oi
body or mind, and for the general de-
pressed state of health that is so apt to re-
sult from a sedentary life of hard work and
routine, Paine's celery compound is the
one strictly accurate relief. It refreshes
and restores the worn-out tissues, disposes
the body to take on new flesh and rapidly
clears the system of the us?d-up elements
that clog its healthy working.
Drudging indoor workers who seldom
get a long breath of fresh air— and there
are many such, both men and women-
recover vigor of the nerves and vital
organs through the use of Paine's celery
compound.
