The Ktiiulito of tho Cliorrr Diamond

Fully l'-'-111'" rersons wltneBod the day's

. had th distinction of enteritis to tho
,nortlns ralato of fnshlon mid beauty, but
n, tho fatino It l' appnront that It will
tue tn share the honors with Its rival.
Sbortlf attxr uoon the spacious grand stand

of Invited guests, llcforo Ilia athletic events
j,j got fairly itudof way the upper and lower

compelled to lnndethe right Held blcnchor

ground where the loft-flold bloa liorlen v.oro

many more wbio at the doors vainly clam
erlnrforadinl'.slon. BSwndita upon tbo club house porch a protty
scene ns In view. The open air scats ,en a
Bovine mass of different colored parasols, and
tie huge stand with Its thousands of charm- j
ttslr erstumed women was again ollVet on the
other ride by a constantly moving throne with
ictisliedei of rich colors, looking tor all tho
world like a migrating Held of variegated
mushrooms, while tho steep bluff, with Its
many occ a ints, was a background to
It IL The olllcials who bad woikcd
bard to make tbe affair a success could
tnrdly restrain their omotion at the sight.
ml one remarked: "The $.",00u this is
era Ice the club has been well spent." Ad
nMluD was by invitation only, nnd It Is estl
BiUd that 20.000 invitations were issued. In
rkw ot the face that many were given to
Wanner In blocks tho " It. S. V. IV engraved
in tue curds waa a matter of much amuse
ment. It wai only fitting that stioli n groat nicotine
tbuuld result la some wonderful perform
ances, and recotds kept tumbling duiing the
slternoou. The very flmt event showed that
the beautifully laid track was more than
willing to do Its share, fur Mart Ilomington,
running easily and against a strong wind in
tbo lino-yard scratch race, won by twenty
ignis in ill 3-5 seconds, dangerously close to
Lon Myers's long-standing figures of ill '. sec

equalled John Owen's world's lecord. but as.
unfortunately, only two timkeepors started

bud covered the distance In 1 minute Hi ' sec

Dohm was Impeded on the lust lap, coming
tbrough his Held, and had to pull out nnd run

Murphy became slightly pocketed. Banker got

went head over heels, when he seemed to have
the inco almost secure.
The lawn tennis finals were played tn one
corner of the ground, nnd during the alter

tention. Miss M. K Cablll again showed tbat
td Is well-nigh Invincible.
The anuatlc portion of the programme did
not attract n large crowd, uelngdeclded In the
morning. There was a fair attendance, how
ever, owing to a general curiosity to see Mr.
.Norman Munro's wonder, the Norwood, which
i was to be on band to race against

The swimming raoe was the most interesting
Cart of the water show, twelto contestants

sent oernoard according to their allot

satisfaction alter the race owing to tbe
handicapping, nnd urgent inquiries were
made for tbe Individual who had parcelled out
the stnrts. Harold Cleaver, the M. A. C. swim
ming director, was the guilty man.
The naphtha aud canoe races were ordinary
affairs, onlv two starters appearing In encb.
The eight-oared shell race was aollnker right
to the llnistilngline.
Lacrosse, basebill. and football were the
concluding pastimes. The famous New York
A. I' l.iciosse team met the Manhattans, but
there was no ill-feeling and tko spectators
who had joyfully anticipated another such a
game as occurred at staten Island ou Labor
Day wore woulullv disappointed.
Canon's band played stirring airs through
the half-mile and one-mile running contests,
and the question arose whether tbe muslo

them to tbe sidewalk at abont the time when
the llremen declared all danger over.

that he believed the fire was of incendiary ori
gin. When the firemen broke ln tbe front door
they found two distlnot fires burning, one In a
heap of wrapping i aper under the counter,
and the other about ten feet off. toward the
rear or the stoie. A kerosene oil can, bolt
tilled and without a stopper, was close by.
Devo and his family live in rooms opening
out of the store. Mrs. Deyo and , her , children
are at Mlddletown. Deyo slept by himself on
Friday night. He cot up at about 'i o'clock
to answer the milkman's Knock, and went
