Thero wa? a lurgo turnout of gollors at tho
Crescont A. 0. yesterday, and. In addition to
the long-drlvlnc contest for a cup presontod by
J. H, Ollphant, tho President, an olglileou-holo
swoepstakos at modal piny onubled the mem

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

of accuracy Tucker, C'umiiboll and O'Flyn

Amateur skaters rocelvod an opportunity
to test ttielr mettle yesterday In a sories of
rncosat Montclalr. Home of the speedy ones
canio a long distance to meet the metropoli
tan craaks. 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. Hou got up In time to
bent McflaveZout for second place.
. Tliu admirers oCBeo and Hornfeck had
eoino heated arguments after the race, whlnh
ended lu u challenge from Bee to skate his rival

Tons of Muslin Underwear.
Our Great
Midwinter Sale Opens ToDay. 1
The scene has already changed. 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 ?

warBahool, S4 and 110 IVist I'lfty-flrat street,
5 CHterday afternoon at 'J o'clock, when all tho
solected competitors had appeared. 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.
Ho has the making of a chess player, for he
seomsto possess nil the necessary qualifica
tions. 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.
