Yes terday the Oxford aud Yale uuiversity teams contended on the Queen's club grounds for athletic honors and Kugland wou by 5i events (not points) to 3 events. And about the same time the Britannia was beating the Vigilant for the seventh consecutive time, crossiug the line ahead and not needing her time al lowance. There was any amount of en thusiasm for both Yale and Oxford at the Queen's club ground -,and partisans of the two teams made the air ring with their shouts when a point was gained by oue of the contestants. I'romlueut Americans Trescnt. The Uuited States ambassador. Mr. Bayard, and Mrs. Bayard, Bishop Potter and all the secretaries of the United States embassy were conspicuous in a group, which was surrounded by the for eign representatives, who were in sympa thy with the Yale men. The scoring was done us follows: The university wiuning a first in any event, scores five points; three points are scored for either univer sity for a second place in any event, and one point is scored by either uuiversity for a third place in any event. There was one fact that the Americans had to re mind their Kuglish competitors of aud that was that the British won on their speed at runuing, the Americans takiug nearly all the other events. Itegiuuiug of the Contest. The bell was rung promptly at 4:30 p. m for the competitors iu the KXJ yanl dahh. The moment the Yale men appeared the baud struck up "Hail Columbia," which was greeted with loud applause ou all sides. When the pistol was fired there was roar of upplause and iu a secoud it was seeu that Fry, the Oxford mau, hud the lead. While it was still in progress Cap tain Hickuk advanced to make his liiiidity throw.

Then a roar of applause announces that Hickuk wins the hummer throwing for Yule, while another roar tells that Fry has tukeu the dash for Oxford. Yale had the best of the start in the hurdle race, but the Englhdiuieu come up at the fourth hurdle and got in lirst, Cady falling (Cudy is a Yale man). It was the same all through the running races, the English were the best, while in the ruuuiug broad jump aud putting the shot the Americans were away ahead. The Cloning Event.

Pond for Yale taking the colors to the frout iu the lirst lap. Green how, Oxford, however, was ruuuiug evidently with much reserved strength and he pushed to the frout, caus ing the Oxonians to yeil like madmen. Pond could not down him, though Yale yelled so hard in her effort to encourage the Xew England runners and Greeuhow came iu ahead of Pond by six iuches iu a ternhc liuiuh only to be seized iu the arms of yelling Oxouians, raised aloft and carried along the track. After the liiiish poor Pond was completely exhausted and fell into the arms of two friends who fairly carried him from the Held, while a few feet distant the victorious Greenhow was beim; borne aloug hoisted ou the shoulders of the howling crowd.

He said the Oxford team was delighted with the Yule athletes. He thought the Americans had not done their best, and certainly were not up to the record. This was be cause they were over-trained. While the Oxford men had not reached their best form because they were under-trained. AH the members of his team were sur prised at Hickok's work with the hammer and weight, lie regretted that the condi tions were not better aud he thought that if the track had been dry Sheldon would have cleared twenty-four feet in the run uing broad jump. He said further that, although it was difficult to iudu.-e the Oxford men to train in the summer tne, he was determined, if possible, to get Oxford to agree to a re turn match with Y'ale in 18U5. He hoped that the athletes of the two universities could meet annually. Hickok said he was bitterly disappointed, not so much because the Yale team was bsaten as because the Oejl did not do as Bellas thev.did in tha BOCK ISLAND, ILL., TUESDAY, JULY inais.

One mau remained in the buggy, the other two came in and one sail he wanted some cheese. Mr. Wetherwax, who is also the postmaster, started down stairs after the cheese. As he raised the cellar door both men covered him with re volvers and demanded the coutents of the sufe. Wetherwax is a small man, but game. He struck the revolver from one man with the lamp he held, but the other mas fired twice at the storekeeper, both shots tak ing effect. One entered through the right hip nnd the other entered the right side, struck a rib and glaucjd. The men ran out and jumped into the buggy and fled.
