and that in wakllng one mile. It is 14
rounds and 16 feet from starting to finishing
point. To walk ten miles it will take l k
rounds and ltxi feet." Tbe following per
sons were appointed and acted as judges:
W.J. Andrews, A. M. Hughes, Jr., and
Sheriff W. A. Alexander.
At 9 o'clock, precisely at the tap of the

their opinion that he could have made it In
