Tho Santa Clans of tho links, ns It turned out, had spatial favors In store for MacMuhon, who not only won the cup for driving, but also tied nt 1)1 not for first plaoo In the sweepstakes with James Ithett. Accuracy as well as dlstanco countod In tho driving content, nud, as tho boundary Hues were only seventy feot apart, most of tha competitors found that I.alng had sot a bird task for them, Moreover, a ball between the lines tell en rolling ground nud was apt to " Lick " out If at all near tho boundailos. At about 130 yards from the tea a decided slope began, and If this vnntago point could bo calnod a long and favorablo roll on tho ball was almost a certainty. Each player tccolvad three trials, the average counting. Only two of the contestants sot safo on their thrcont tompts, Patterson and Vlckors, but each spollod his chance to win by topping ono ball, line Mahoii pulled his first drivo, nnd, although a longball.lt went out of bounds. Ills next two attempts were lone und turn, tha agcrcgnio distance being .'HI ards 1 foot, and, ns this won for him nn av crime of 114, ha proved to bo the winner, MaeMahon Is nn old-tlmo tennis player who has only bocn at colt for about ten months. A fact that nuido his show ing the more credltablo was that until vory recently ho plnjed from too to ho'o with only one club, and that a puttur. But for tho uood of accuracy Tucker, C'umiiboll and O'Flyn might enslly havo mndo n hotter showing than tho winner, but after one or two truo triuls each they became wild In dliectlon.

Verona I.ako. on which the racea took plaoo, is picturesquely situated. It is surrounded by hills, and the sloping banks formfcatuiul grand stands for a orowd. Most of tho spectators yesterday, howevor, were on run ners, and took turns at speed and fancy skat ing In tho Intorvals between tho contests. A ttack of six lnpa to tho mllo had bean laid out on the smoothest portion of tho large sheet of ice, and to the spectators equipped with ordi nary skates it appeared In perfect condition. The long, narrow blades ot the raoers, how ever, slipped Into the little groves made by parsons practicing around the traok early In the dav. The competitions were so oxcltlng and tho men so well matched that fast time would have been made if the loo had been In llrst-elass shape. Tho day's sport began with the one-mile novice taco, in which seven men fnood the staiter. It wns a loafing contest for the first half mile. Then the Montclalr lad, Ous Hornfeck, cut out the pace; and, swinging alone In promising stvle, won easily by fif teen laj-ds. Pullerton of Brooklyn beat out tho Now Haven novice. 0. V. Holland, by Ave yards for tho place. Inciting Incidents were of frequent occur rence In the ono-mllo handicap. In which 0. MoClnvo of tho New York A. 0. and V. II. Morritt of Ht. John had, to concedo starts ranging from 5U yards to 110 yards. The soratoh man went away at a dashing pace, and cauclit the field at n lap and a half. Then Le rjy H 2, who received fifty yards handicap, let the (cratch man gain that distance and then sit out in earnest. He led at two laps, with .11. It, Hornfock next. Mi Clave was holding Merrltt, but he struck the New Brunswick nun's skate and went down. This put him PracMcallyout of the race.. Ilnrnfeck and Morritt followod fiee's pace until forty jnrds from the finish. Then the Brooklyn boy put in a few speedy strokes and swept across the lino n winner by three vurds. Hornfeck and Jlerrltt crossed the line almost together, but tliu former dived forward tit tlio finish nnd re eeivedltheudges' vordlctlfor tho place. The Ht. John skater disputed the award, and beaause thuy would not change It refused to start In tho three-mile race. With Merritt out the three-mile event was looked on as u good tnlnc for boo. He and M. It. Hornfeck received 1-.' yards start, and at tho end of two laps they deprived the limit man. Humment, ot the lead. Hornfeck again prollted by tuing Hee as a pacemaker, and thuy reeled off the laps at a beautifully oven gait. Hu covered the first mile In Il.mlnutes L'o seconds and two miles In 0 minutes 40 sec onds, 'lho two hnd drawn away from the bcrutch man. McCluve. who was hopelessly out of it. Icnterlng the last lap the Berkeley hcliool boy sprinted and halt war around ho commenced to draw away, when his skate caught In a rut, and he fell headlong, Tho crowd chcored wildly ns the Montclalr man cainu homo a winner.

Tons of dainty garments on the second floor, harbingers of spring, as if by magic have taken the place of the busy joyous Christmas week just passed. Every year makes for improvement and incites us to greater achievements. What were unheard-of offerings in this store a year ago are eclipsed by those of to-day. Notwithstanding a , large advance in the price of embroideries and a coming advance in raw materials, we are able to Ji offer you at this sale better garments at lower prices than ever known. Anticipating your question, we are frank to say that this sale is an advantage to us, that it pays us to sacrifice all profit, and in many cases even sell below cost, because by doing so we transform the natural lull in business which immediately follows Christmas into activity, energy, life, and give employment to hundreds who would otherwise have to be idle. This sale is an advantage to you because you can fill your wardrobe with a year's supply of dainty things at prices that cannot be obtained at any other time of the year. Why? Because (and here's where you get the double benefit of the manufacturer , giving up his profit as well as ourselves) the makers of these garments are not busy in October, November and December and are always ready to make a sacrifice if it will only keep their factories running. It is an advantage for you to buy now because the garments are more carefully made than iii nit uuoy acuauii, wiicn an i luan unu iiiirry. It is an advantage for you to buy of us because we make no exaggerated claim, but offer you better garments for less money than you can obtain anywhere. This statement is not made Jl boastfully and it would be foolishness for us to say that which you cannot easily verify. , ll But what are we offering you ? The very newest things in Muslin Underwear, the future fashions in Shirt Waists, the stylish Wrappers, the most approved Corsets, the delicate Cov- I ermgs for infants, the Muslms, the Cambrics, the Nainsooks ; not a skimp in the shaping, J whatever the price; not a shortcoming in fabric or finish; neat trimmings, substantial, dainty, 'f tasteful, durable, and all made in those clean, neat factories by well-paid, happy operatives (just like home made, only better, because our expeits study daintiness and give you variety). What pleasanter than gathering them at prices such as we are giving ? STUDENTS PLAY CHESS. fits .vEir jwi7.v j.v tjik istercok- J.KQIA TK TO URSA MUST.

Dr. HO. Moors of the Columbia Grammar School ad dreaned tho players, expressing: the hope that the best team would vf In tho contest. When tlierlajers were seated at the four respectlro boards, the spectators wcro struck by the youthful appearance of tho studonts. Of courso this did not apply to either Elinor U. Bout hard of Harvard or Arthur H. Moyor of Columbia or Loula A. Cook of Yalo, Thoso men have boen seen nt tho eolleeo cames In provlous years, Kaufman G. Kalk of Columbia just entered tho Columbia Univ erslty this fall hilo Quite boyish IooMiib w lion away from theboard.be nppears twice as old when engacod In play.

He Is quiot In rnannor, deliberate in his movement off nnd on tho board, and, thanks to the prcstlce which ho obtained when par ticipate an a representative of Sachs school in the Interscholastlo contests last year, he w 09 not nerv ous at all, and met his antoconlst, Charles F. 0. Arensborg of Harvard, with ro murkable coolness. This, however, could nlso bo said of the lattor. Although nt ono state ot their eamo It looked as It Talk had a fine win nine attack, it did not unnorre the Harvard man, who remalnod as cool as tho proverbial cucumbor, Tho Yale man. Albert M.Webb, had the hard est task boforo him, bb he had to moot such a rcdoubtablo antagonist as Southard, At first he seemed lost and his Ideas enmo slowly. Later, however, he Ignored tho strange sur roundings as well ns tho skill ot bis adversary, and played carefully, steadily, and quietly. Joliu A. Ely ot Princeton made a good Impres sion, lie gave a strong light to vetoranCook, und qulgkly settled dow n to his w ork. His ool lego mate, Alfred S. 'Weston, on tho other hand. looked vary nervous, and It appears as If It w III take some time before he will get used to play ing in strange company, 'i'lio pairing was as follows: rlk (0) vs. Areasbrra (II). Cook IV) vs. Ely (P), Meyer (0) vs. Weston (V), Webb (Y) vs. Southard (II). Areneborg adopted the l'otroff defence In his camo against Talk. The latter brought about tho variation which Kemenrat ono time se lected In his match agalust Hhowalter at Phila delphia when Keraeny answered to P Q 4 with P-Q 4 at tha third move. Talk shortly after the opening move got tho better game, but being afraid to risk anything he began playing for a draw, and exchanged a number of pieces. Finally, there was nothing lett on the board but kings, pawns and bishops of an opposlto color, so tliu contestants agreed to draw the game after thirty-two moves. Cook, on the second board, opened with a illiiHii'a pawn game ngiilust Kly, White se lected such ft slow variation us to give an early chance for his opponent to procoed with an attack, vvhlih, however, would scarcely have led to a win but foi Cook's Indifferent ;ihiy. Cook mude a blunder on the twenty-fourth move, which loat him tho queen, uud eight iiiovos later he wus obligul to give up the game. Kly seemed to pluy without Ihe leuit umburraxsnieut. and hlx style en used generul admiration uiiioug the onlookers.
