THE PACING RECORD
Of Star Pointer EZzeUy Equaled by Di
Readville, Mass., Sept. 23.-Da
Pat?h, the famous pacer, went again
the wo-ld's record of 1.594, made t
Star Pointer on the Readville trac
five years ago, this afternoon, and i
a truly magnificent performan<
equalled the rpoord. Weather coi

Dan Patch was brought out f<
a. warming up mile with a runner i
pac naker. Without an effort I
went the distance in 2.13. Half a
hour later the handsome black pace
came out for his trial against time.
As in the other mile, a runner wi
sent out ahead. No time was losti
scouring, and Myron Mclienry noi
ded the first time down for the wirn
and a hundred watches caught ti
start. The pacer had his stride froi
the yord, and there was not a ski
for the whole mile, his legs movin
with perfect regularity. It was n<
until the third quarter that every o0
felt convinced that the record was i
danger. Up the stretch came tt
pacer, his flashing under the wire

Suicides for 1901
Somebody has been getting to
n gether the number of suicides in
d American and other cities last year.
San Francisco leads off with the
largest ratio, 39.1 per 100,000 of
population. Next comes another
Pacife coast city, Los Angeles; with
a ratio of 29.8. The reader has nat
urally been looking for Chicago, and
n that city does, in fact, come next,
gt with a ratio of 24, followed by the
y neighboring city of . Milwaukee,
k whose ratio is 22:2. New Orleans
,n was the scene of the self destruction
se of 218 persons per 100,0000 of pbp
i- ulation, and Cincinnati followed
close, with 21.2. New Haven is next,
>r with 20.8, and then comes the
' borough of Manhattan,- with 20,
e though Greater Nev York as a
n -whole is well down the list, with a
'r ratio of only 13.6. This is less than.
