[Special to Ths Timea-Digpatch.]
CIIARLOTTESVILLK, VA., March 31.
?Coach Lannigan gave a number of
the members of the Vlrglnia track
team some fast trlals yesterday after?
noon. Wlltshlre ond lOager took the
trlals in the bjalf-mllo. Tho tlme,
whlle not glven out, was known t>>
have been very fast, consldering that.
tho wlnd was agalnst them for fully
200 yards at each turn. Quarter-mlle
tt lals were tnkcn by Thurlow and Stan
ton.
In the sprlnt events, the runncrs
were greatly helped by tho wlnd, but
even wlth thls some good tlme was
made, Ashby winnlng a heat in 10 2-a
seconds. He repeated nlcely ln the 22i>.
runnlng the distance ln 23 seconds.
Rector ran the 220 In 22 4-6.
Stanton. the Californlan, again ahow
ed his versatllity by doing hla hun
dred In easy fashion ln 10 3-5.
Burke and Enimert ran a close sec?
ond to Rector ln the 220. and-repeated
nlcely ln thc htjndred. runnlng a dcad
heat ln 10 3-0.
The mlie resulted in a very pretty
race, Charles Williams and Luclen Carr
runnlng a dead heat in 5:10. Honsch,
Kloan, Llndsay and Toulimin also took
trlals In tho mlie.
Martin and llolladay both took trlals
in tho low hurdles. In leaving the
nlnth luirdlc Martin trtpped and sus
tained a severe fall. Coach Lannigan
ls very much worrled about Martln's
eondltion. The star hurdler Is now in
tho hospital, and It will probably be
sevoral davs heforo ho gets out. Lan
nlgan is afraid that tho accident will
hurt Martln's chances in the Valo mcet,
as every mlnute is vaiuable at thia
stage of tralnlng.

When Pred Nlblo. the Amerlcan
hdrriorlat-travelor, grn-e the flrst of hls
"travel taiks" in the Academy of MXisIc
three we.ejti ago, tho small audienco
that heard hlm w-as dellghted, and sald
so.
Last nlght, when an audlence that
well filled tho playhouse, traveled.
wlth tho lec.turer through "Russl.a
from the Black S'en to Slbe'rla," hls
llsteners must have felt that they
wore lemporarlly transported to an
other land, Rcallstlc acenes of cvents
and pltices served to lllumlnato every
utterance. I
Aithough a comparatively young
man, Nlblo has acqulred tho art ot
appeallng to hls audlences, and this
was well manlfested by tho verdlct of
those who heard hlm last nlght. Ho
has n charmlng peraonallty, and hls
aim seems to bo to make hls audl
tors feel that he. with them, ls really
on a pleasuro trlp.
"Tales of Travel ln Distant Lands"
Is the general toplc of all the siibjects
chosen, and under thls head those who
dttend tho aet-les will securo an exat-t
knowledge of tho way in whlch people
Ilvo ln nearly every land under the
sun. ? A
Many school chlldren wero in tho
audlence last night, and the verdlct of
a well known educator ls, "I know of
no bottcr way ln whlch to Impress
Children than ln portraylng scenes as
Mr. Nlblo does." There ls no lapse
ln the Interest *T>om the rlsc to the
fall of the curtalri.
Next Wedneaday nlght JIrt Nlblo
will take hls audienco through South?
