f Darby, tho HiirIMi .lumper.
Joo Darby, tho recognized champion
jumper of tho world, nn oxchango says, Is
now giving exhibitions at tho Westminster
Aquarium In London After each perform
ance his manager choltcngos any man in tho
is 01 Id to jump from tuo to twenty standing
jumps lor nny amount ot money.
During tho week John F, Hartnclt. tho
great Lnsteru juniper, who halls from
Docdhnm, Mass.. has accepted this swoon
ing ehallmgo. If Daiby will glvn him ono
foot In tuostnudlim Jumps ho will mako a
match for $IXK n side, nnd glvo or talto $100
for expenses, llnrtnott will Jump lu nuy
city In tho United States within two months,
but can not go to England before March.
The fact that llartnctt will not Jump an
even tuntch shows what a champion Darby
Is. Whllo HufTnlo Hill was abroad this oar
ho had with him tho recognized standing
broad Jumping clmmploir of Amorica,
George llnmlllon, who holds tho world's
riconl. Cody mado n match with Darby
for Hamilton and Darby won easily,
During his cxhlbltloiis'ln Lofidou Darby
has cleared lu two standing Jumps twenty
six feet two inches, making 11 now record.
In two back jumps hoclcaicdulnotecufect.
Ho has cleared six feet In a ruunliig hip
Jump. Ills most wonderful performance
was thrco Jumps of thirty-six foot thrco
Inches, on tho last Jump clearing tho head
ot n man seated on n chair.
As a trick Jumper It Is doubtful It Darby
over had nn equal, In a broad Jump with
weights ho has cloarcd seven chairs In n
row. One of his favorlto tricks Is to Jump
from nn ordinary brick, Jumping over a
chair, nnd landing on an upturned brick
without knocking cither down,
Dnrbj's challcngo Is open to the world,
In enso 110 ono lu Kugfand Is anxious to
Jump this wonder, ho will visit America and
