The feature of to-day's card was the fourth race, an all-age affair, in which some of the best horses of the track were entered. The pride of the pleas ant Valley stable, the chestnut horse, Baritone II., and John McCauley's crack, Oracle, the best horse ever run on an outlaw track, and Underwood's game three-year old colt Monroe Doctrine. The start was a good one. Oracle and Baritone II. started off at a hot pace and outrun tlieir field, opening a gap of five lengths over Monroe and Charlie Wells. It was very plain half way down the back stretch that Baritone II. liad enough, and Oracle had a clear lead of two lengths when entering the stretch. Monroe Doctrine and Charles Wells were having a hot light to see who would retain third position. McIntyre had a slight advantage making the turn off the back stretch, and it appeared to many as though he crowded Narvaez, who fell back a length. Oracle was winning easily, and Baritone was getting very tired, and it looked as though Cluirlie Wells had the place, when the game son of Tristan came to battle again with Loyn's pet, and received the verdict by a neck. Narvaez was suspended for the meeting for disobedience at the post. I a Summary. First Race—Four and one-half fur longs: May Pinkerton, 112 (J.

The Lorillard-Beresford stables' Sandia, ! ridden by "Tod" Sloane, won the Old Cambridgeshire Handicap at Newmarket, England, yesterday. Later, Meta H., also of the Lorillard-Beresford stables, with "Tod" Sloane up, won the New market Free Handicap. The Old Cambridgeshire Handicap is of 500 sovereigns, added to a sweepstakes of 25 sovereigns each, ten sovereigns forfeit to the fund; the second horse to receive 50 sovereigns out of the stakes. Six horses ran over the Old Cambridge shire: course (one mile and 240 yards. The Duke of Devonshire's Balsame was ; second, and Mrs. Langtry's Brayhead was third.

Jack White lost a swell bet on Bari tone II., but Francis M. evened things up a little. George Tappmen made a cinch of it and played Baritone a place, luck next time. Dump Dolan, the Iron Hill assistant starter, was looking at some horses wanning up, and when Long Gain passed him he was seen to raise his lint und make a bow. I wonder why he has such a kind regard for this animal. Harry Shannon and Billy Lynch have been looking very wise of late. His I horse must be working very fast. I think they will need watching. Thomas Dycer made a killing on Re form and evened up for some of his mis takes early in the day. Arthur Worley was very sweet on T. W. W., and paid dearly for his affection. Dick Baker is stopping on a near-by farm and mining his horses on the road, and when lie gets ready to bet the Books better look out, as he seldom makes a mistake. Will have a new depositor to-day.

But as he has never showed nervousness while plunging thousands of dollars or pennies on one single race it was a surprise to see him uneasy. are Football. Wealthy undergraduates of Yale Uni 107; vereity have subscribed the necessary money for the erection of the new grand stand on the east side of Yale Field, which will seat about six thousand per sons, and will prove a great improve ment. There are three kinds of football in use by football players. The official inter collegiate is an ellipse. That use in the Gaelic game is almost a perfect globe, and the Association football is perfectly round, The intercollegiate football is the only one which can be picked up and carried. half 115; Not, of Elec 107; 105; of 110; York, a 112; Arun 107; Flash the Hr.

Although every endeavor has been made to have them do so, the football teams of West Chester and Phoenixville,! between which there has been a bitter rivalry for years, will not meet this sea Phoenixville offered West Chester! son. but fifteen per cent, of the gate receipts to play there and refused to arrange a re turn game. To this the team here would not agree, and offered to play two games, one in each town, without any guarantee or for half the gate receipts. Phoenix ville refused, and referred the manage -1 ment to her former offer, refusing any-, thing more reasonable. As West Chester will not agree to this the games will not take place. Six hundred Cornell students marched in a body through a heavy thunderstorm yesterday afternoon to the railway sta tion to celebrate the departure of the 'Varsity team for Cambridge. Coach Warner and his men left Ithaca at 5.40. That Grant Cadwalader, Yale's big guard, did not suffer a fracture in his accident, Monday, is now stated by Drs. McCosh and McBttrney, of New York city. Cadwalader lias just returned from New York, where his injury was examined by these specialists under the X rays. They declare that the ligaments were badly strained, and that the bone may be splintered, but that there is no fracture. This being the case, Cadwala der will be wearing a Yale uniform again within two weeks. One of the funniest incidents of the | football season thus far is the excite-! on day he and and out on ment at Easton over the report that Half-back Snyder had given Lafayette's signals to Pennsylvania before last Satur day's game and the talk and stuff written in evidence to prove such to be the case. Just what good it would have done Pennsylvania to have known Lafayette's signals these excited Eastonians fail to explain. Lafayette had the hall very seldom, and when she got it she was j glad to kick sifas to get it out of danger 1 before losing it on a fumble—which she I did more than once. Lafayette was so I slow in starting her plays, and Captain ! Rinehart usually whispered to Quarter- i back Best before the signal was given, and when the latter looked around to see , where the man stood he was to pass the; ball to, that the wide-awake Pennsylva- : nians could tell, without even listening to any signals, nearly every time which I of the opposing players was going to take j the ball. Yale was given an all-around challenge ! in athletics Wednesday from the r n i.; ; . it I vereity of Pennsylvania. It came from no less a personage than Prof. George F. I head of the Department of I Barker, Physics at the Philadelphia University, himself a graduate of Yale in the class j of '58. !

These old players swarmed about the 'Varsity and followed every play so closely that the spectators from the grand stand could not see which back received the ball. ' I He ti I 11 six , , tor, heveral positions on the Tigor eleven_ are still in the experimental stage. This | grand Field, per use inter the is up was especially evident in yesterday's practice, when two of the men were played at entirely new positions. Left end has been a position that has given Captain Cochran endless difficulty in the filling of it. Neither Lathrop nor Creigh have seemed able to do satisfactory work, so to-day Palmer was places! at the posi tion, and displayed excellent form. Harvard intends springing some "new ones" on Cornell to-day. The Crimson team worked in secret yesterday, and nobody was "put on" as to the quality of the practice.

Madden, who was very much disappointed, claimed the forfeit, and as no heavy-weight seems in clined to fight his man, Madden claimed the championship for Ruhlin.
