- Yesterday's Wheel Rare.
Quite a large crowd gathered at the bicy
cle track, yesterday afternoon, to witneas
a few friendly contests between local
riders. In the one-mile handicap raoe, W.
T. Cloud, an. eighty-yard man,. won tbe
event in 2; 58, from about seven entries,
though it Is perhaps fair to say that the
acratoh men, Brash and McGaflio, did not
race until the flniah, confining their atten
tion strictly to each other.
In tbe five-mile raca, Jack Mennet, who
had a one-eighth mile handicap, gained
about 200 yarda on the scratch men, and
won out In 16:05. As In the mile race, tbe
cratch men confined tbelr racing strictly
against each other and made a pretty
finish, with Brash in tbe lead.
The small boys' race of balf-a-mlle, with
four entries, wa hotly conteated and won
in the time of 3 minutes.
A race for keeps between Brash and Mc
Gaffin la not an improbability, la the near
future, and will be worth going miles to
aee, should it occur.
