Men are hero ivorshlpers, and love to be tecpgnlzed publicly bv successful persons vr by thosi In authority. There Is something th.-t throws a gla mour around raclnar ofllclals that makes tho ordlnarj" lay follower of the sport un commonly proud when he Is fn In ron vcrsc with one of tho occupants of a pedestal. Of course. It ts a. most decided compli- ment to any man's integrity ti lie picked out as an official hating to do directly with the running of races, but It Is hardly this which Is responsible for the elf-on'CloU's preening of those who stop bjhlnd th.j little Judicial Inclosure at the Fair Orounds. and chat a mement or two with on of the official. When Mr. Haehmelfter coms over and shnkeB hand, with that oatehv smile of h!. It alwajs looks as though tVj reelp- I lent Is thrice lilvseil. lit- hn' an uneon- trolablo lncltntkm to stick h'.s thumbs In the nrmholei of hw st and parade up and doun a, couple of tije.. And there are thoj who gaiy upon him with more or less envy. "A OOOD IJtfEP.." Another rnclng type which Is always amulm I" that which e:s Itself tip as "a good lorer." Tl:'s nienns tht ht prides himself nith tils stoicism with which hs I can watej) a In re on which he U letting gcttlnir beat. If you str.nd real close to Mm whn the race H being run. you can j hardly hlp noticing tho gradual Increase In tho dKtance I-etwcen his His as the horss he l backing falls back. If. perchance, the horee makes a wuiden spuit and assumes a better i-jsltion. the "good Ioer" cannot keep the excited gleam out of his eyes or th: talti-h out of th muscles of his face. Then, when It li over and he begins to tll how. "Of courfe. I don't mind losing my money, but " There are dozen of "but." and th "coM loisr' is never at a loss to cite one. Tho strange part about this Is that hen he Mins a btt he never wee,, tj)fr "but' which made the backers of this, that or th othr hcri-e lose, and lm" no patlcr.ee when the other "good lv'-scr" tries to re cite it to him. The old timers, of course, become, moro or less blase, but the sensation of ex citement ncer really dies out. But when a newcomer wins a bet he feels a stimula tion which Is afforded by no intoxicant or drug over manufactured or grown. His head swells and his chest expands, and he gazes over th. crond with a f-'ei-Ing of contempt which Is so good natured as to be almost philanthropic. N'o line of argument In the world could convince him that the persons who did not bit as he did ought not to be put in charge of a guardian. A certain newspaper correspondent for outsldo rapcrs a few years ao found It necessary in the course of his work to at tend the races. Of course, he bet on them In a small way. . hero and ST there, and. like all newcomers, was successful. He adopted the beginner's usual system of plavlng long: shots to show, an almost In variable rush to bankruptcy, but for two weeks his luck held out he was a Joy to h! friends. . , ,. He loved the world and everyone in It. but he would almost ha-e tears in his voice In urging his friends to do as he did. Ho didn't stop to think they were tryrnc as desperately as they knew how to win a bet. and the majority of them, having been closely associated with the turf for manv years, while he had merely touched its perimeter hours, naturally thought they had a better chance golr.g their own way. . , After two weeks, the wrong long shot began to drop Into the money: or. worw Hill, the three shortest-priced horses la the betting would split up the entire purse. Tl e gjod-natured correspondent wait first puzzled, then shocked, and final ly scandalized. He had a better head than the majority of the novices, for he stayed away, and hired a man to do his work, but a mri with the logic of Grover Cleveland and the eloquenco of William Jennings Bryan could not now convince him that there was a shred of honesty In the game or in anyone connected with It. .' t; ' -' ' - 'Jr- '" r " 'If '.--,-d A .&Al ffiL. v Ammwmmmmsmmmt a . x- - &m- -- & mmw' "mmmMmmMmmmm2mm&t i . & mm-. m&' rwmsmamKrA s - m v H!;i . vA- .-, jorii fr:;3!.5aajHei?ir.-' ss.anrjr oapacvV' i . .s'" . .. .

Tho Olympic Games, which begin morrow at the World's Fair Stadium, will bring together tha greatest collection of athletes that have assembled at one time In tho history of sport. That many records will be broken Is not disputed, as the class of men that will contest for honors Is of a high grade. The team races will also be hotly con tested, as tho athletic associations of the East and West have got together many crack men who cither attended college be fore or were with some smaller organiza tion, and the clubs will battle for the greatest number of points. The track and field wero put in condi tion last week, and notldng will be left undone between now and the time for the first event to make everything convenient for the competitors. Six championship events are scheduled for to-morrow, while four handicap con tests will bo run off simultaneously with tho big cames. The sixty-meter run will be the first event started, and followed by the throwing tliteen-pound hammer. 400 meter run, ZS50 meter steeplechase, stand ing broad Jump' and running high Jump. The handicaps will include tho l-ynrd hurdle, running broad Jump, EiO yards ran "id putting sixteen-pound shot. INTEREST IN RENEWAL. There is widespread Interest In the third Olympiad of tho renewal of the ancient Hellenic games. In ISM representatives of the athletic associations of the world, who were assembled In Paris, decided that ihtro should b a revival of the Olympic C H. GARDNER. Australian hurdler. to-games, and that each country In thould be tho bcene of their celebration. To Greece, by right of priority, was ac corded the privilege of the first celebra tion, which took place in ISS6. The an nouncement of this decision aroused Greek patriotism to the highest pitch, and from wealthy citizens of the country came con tributions to cover the expense of the preparations for the great event, in which, it was decreed by the Parts Congress, every form of physical exercise practiced In the world should be Included. Despite the fact that much opposition developed In some places to the renewal of the games, the whole affair was a wonderful success. Originally the greatest of the four pan Hcllenlc festivals of the ancient Greeks, the Olympic games were celebrated at In tervals of four years In honor of Zeus. In an enclosure on the plain of Olympla in the Province of Ells; With sacrifices the festival began, followed by contests in running, wrestling, etc.. closing on the fifth day with processions, sacrifices and banquets to the victors. Garlands of wild olive were the only prizes, and with these the winners were crowned. .Extraordinary distinction, was shown to the victors on their return home, and thereafter they en Joyed numerous honors, and privileges. The contestants were required to be free-, born, and, for many centuries, of pure Hellenic blood, but after the Roman con quest tlie Romans participated. Those who took patt In the Olymplo events were required to train for ten months previous to the contests. Judges, chosen from FELLK CAIILA1A. Cuban distance runner. turnamon; tho inhabitants of Ells, w ri twelve in number, and controlled a larse number of aids. Following the elaborate ceremonies of the first day and the classification of the contestants of the various games, whlcn originally consisted only of foot races but which wero later supplemented with other contests, the festival began. On the sec ond dav there were thee contests for boys: Foot races, wrestling, boxing aril the pentathlon, or contests of five g-imes -leaping, running, throwing th d'scis. throwing the spear and wrestling. Then followed the nankraton. or combination of boxing and wrestling Horse races, wl: boys as Jockeys, were r.lso held on ta.s day. CONTESTS OF .MEN. The third was the prmcip.ii diy. wVu the contests of the men were en. On tha: day there were foot races over .-Ingle ar.d double courses, as many a3 twenty time.! around the Stadium; wrestling ami boxing, which freouently resulted In death to the vanquished; and the rice of men In heavy armor, wearing helmets, greaves and shield. On the fourth day the pentathlon for men. with chariot races, horso races and sometimes the contests of the heralds. Proecesjlons, sacrifices, awarding of olive crowns and banquets fnarked the fifth and last day. Such were the games In olden time. , For centuries the Olympic Games wer held on the site of the present stadium, situated acro the IIIktux Itlt-er from Athens.opporitc Lycabettus and the Acrop olis, In a natural hollow formed by three hills, spurs of the Hymettus mountains.
