DONE WITH SPIKES Result of the Olympic Field Day Games. EXTRAORDINARY HIGH JUMP. Leland Stanford University Athletes Capture a Majority of Events. The spring field day of the Olympic Club took place yesterday, but owing to counter attraction at the Height-street grounds tbe attendance was not up to tbe expectation of the club managers. A better day for outdoor athletics could not possibly be desired. There was no heavy fog to chill the thin-clad athletes and the gentle zephyr that kept the numerous little flags which decorated the beautiful greensward in motion, was welcomed by the runners, who had longed for a breath of fresh air after a hard race. None of the representatives of the Uni versity of California contested, but in their places tbe comiag "flyers" of the Iceland Stanford University appeared and aston ished the athletes of the Olympic Clubby their very excellent performances. K. A. Suitor of Stanford walked away with the first prize from the six-yard mark In the 120-yard race, and Reynolds of the same col lege took secund prize. The 6 .0-yard run was captured also by Donald ii. Fry of Stanford who, although stinting from the fifteen-yard mark, beat the second man home by fully the length of bis handicap. The mile walk was as usual a tiresome spectacle. There was much disappointment when the announcement was made that the great distance runner of Stanford College, U. E. own, would not start on the three-quarler mile race. Brown was on baud and stated that owing to the bad weather, which had spoiled the Palo Alto track, he was unable to train for the event, and rather than take any chances of a defeat he considered that the wisest thing he could do was to remain out of the contest. The race was won by Pert 11. Coffiu of the Olympic Club in good style. Coffiu, who is one of the most graceful runners that has been seen on the cinders for some time, will prove a dangerous op ponent to any of the long-distance slriders who will measure steps with him at the championship meeting. Terrlll, who represents an unattached club, astonished his opponents by winning the 300-yard dash from the five-yard mark. It must lie said, however, that Maynard of the Stanfords made, a grand attempt for first honors, and were it not for the fact of having to run several yards on the outside of his opponent his chances of victory would have been very good indeed. Land did not have to exert himself very much to defeat Casidy and Coffin. The lat ter quit alter traveling about eight laps. In the shot-putting Stanford's colors again came to the front. Orcutt, a finely put together fellow, with a good ..imply of bone and muscle, took the first prize away from A. 11. Lean of the San Francisco Turn Verein. The Stanford man had. however, a handicap of three feet, which he needed, as he defeated Lean by two inches only. The pole vault was sharply contested, and after numerous trials it was won by M.-. Clellaud of the Acme Athletic Club, who was closely pushed by Crane of the Stan* ford University. Ad'lph Cheek, a lad of 10 years, gave the running high jumpers the surprise of the day by clearing 5 feet 9 inches, which is a remarkable performance for a lad of his years.

Cogswell applied to Judge Hunt for an injunction yesterday to re strain the trustees of the Cogswell Polv leclinical College from holding their tri yearly election of officers. . On March 19, 1887, Dr. Cogswell executed, a deed of trust to several prominent gentle men conveying to them certain property with which to found his polytechnical school, naming, however, certain conditions and THE MORNING CALL, SAN FRANCISCO, SUNDAY, MARCH 20, 1 893-SIXTEEN - PAGES. restrictions in regard to the execution of the trust. On January IS, 1892, he sued the trustees to declare the trust deed void, on the ground that tho conditions had not been compiled with. Pendingthe trial of this suit the tri-yearly election fell due and he sought to prevent such election, fearing that his rights in the suit would be thereby prejudiced. Judge Hunt slated that the election of new offioers among the trustees cannot affect his substantial rights in the litigation, and suggested that the case would have been tried long ago had It not been for the delay of counsel. The injunction was dented and the case set lor April 7. SPORTING NOTES. Events That Will Take Place To-Day on Land and Water. A boat-race will take place to-day over the Long Bridge course between Prank Huplisea and Han Fitzsimmons Against Frank Darling and William Met. rill . The winners will be ready to meet any two oarsmen of the coast under 20 years of age. With one more game to play for the pen. nant the standing of the clubs of the Gaelic Athletic Association competing therefor is as follows: " . Emmets— 5. won 2. Inst 3. O'Briens- Played 6, '.yon 4, lost 2. Parnells— Played 5, won 4. lost 1. The game at Alameda to-day between the Parnells and O'Briens will probably be the last of the series unless the O'Briens win, in which case they would be (led with the Parnells, and another game would be neces sary to decide the championship. The Pacific Kennel Club has selected David Sinclair to act as clerk for the bench ■how committee. Mr. Sinclair Is certainly the right man in the right place, as he has had a wide experience in the East in con nection with kennel affairs, and should therefore prove a valuable man to the com mitter, whose headquarters are at 028 Market street. .Judging from the interest that Is being taken by the sportsmen In the coming show tho Pacific Keuuei Club can reasonably hope for success. li." opening of the Scliuetzen Club Park nt .--.iii Rafael to-day will no doubt be au affair which will afford much enjoyment to those in attendance. Splendid prizes will be offered for bowling and rifle-shooting. The first handball tournament given by the Olympic Club tins year will be played at the club's grounds this afternoon.. As handball lias become a very popular sport with ' amateur athletes a large attendance is expected, j . AN ARTIST'S GENEROSITY. William Keith Presents a Great Paint- ing to the Press Club. One of the most generous gifts over made by any of our local artists was the presenta tion of. his masterpiece by William Keith to the Press Club of San Francisco. The great and often admired canvas rep resenting a woodland scene In Maine, painted by this famous artist after a sketch which he made when back in New England years ago, was yesterday hung in the rooms of the Press Club as a present from a great painter to the newspaper men of this city. The picture is well known as a companion tn the painting owned by Mrs. George Hearst, called "In the Woods of Califor nia," and it has always been considered Mr. Keith's best work before the public. In; a woodland meadow a flock of sheep are browsing, while in the perspective a farmhouse stands in an opening, surrounded by all the appurtenances of a New England country home. The lime is evidently late in the spring, when all nature luxuriates In that part of Ihe country, for the sheep are almost buried in the hieh grass which they have selected for a feeding ground, ;.-.•'■• ' ~ A Newsboy Hurt. _r. ..... -X- _ , .. . . _- ueorge .iseno, a newsboy, living at San some and Vallejo streets, was trying to sell newspapers aboard the Tropic Bird at Mis sion-street wharf yesterday when his foot slipped and he fell down the hold, He was removed to the Receiving Hospital, where It was found that ii" bones were broken, but the lad had sustained a sharp shock and a contusion of the hip.

The handsome little steamer Rosalie made her trial trip yesterday. Invitations had been sent to over 200 guests to attend the trip and most of them weie on hand. Long before 1:30 p. M., the time the steamer was scheduled to start, Washing* ton-street pier was crowded with poople curious to know what the mysterious little steamer was to be used for. Those who were not possessed of invitations were not afforded the privilege of Inspecting the Rosalie on the inside, but the outside suited many, for added to her beauty, she was very prettily decorated with fl.'gs and bunt ing. At about 1 o'clo ■!; the invited guests com menced to arrive, and at 1:30 o'clock, when the Rosalie weighed anchor, about 200 guests were aboard of her. The Fifth Regi ment band commenced to play, and the Rosalie started on her trial trip. She was headed tot the Union Iron Works, where thn sights were taken in, and from there sho proceeded to Black Point, thence to Sausalilo, Tlbnron, Red Rock and around Goat Island, returning to the dock at about 4 o'clock. During the trip the guests nssembled in the cozy cabin, where speeches were made by W. I). English and other.', compliment- C. L. Dimon and James J. Elbert, the own ers of the steamer, upon her beauty and the enterprise for which she is intended. Mr. D.moii, In a very neat speech, ex plained to the guests the mission of the steamer which had created so much curios ity. He said that the Rosalie would be used purely as an excursion steamer to ply dur ing the summer months around tho bay and to the Farallono Islands, Monterey and Santa Cruz. Mr. Dimon also said that ho had studied the situation thoroughly and he had found, that this city was In need of an excursion boat, as when Eastern visitors come here they visit the park, 111 House, etc., but they never have an opportunity to take a trip around the bay. The speed and engines of the Rosalie were Dot tested yesterday, but it is claimed that an average of 14 knots was made un the trip. s_^ The steamer Oregon arrived from the north yesterday afternoon. The revenue cutter Rear, which will shortly depart for the Arctic, went to. Mare Island yesterday to secure supplies. Non-union crews were shipped yesterday on the schooner doubling and the ship John Briggs. The Pacific Mail steamer Acapulco left for Panama yesterday with a light cargo. ON THE COMSTOCK.

Huston Transcript. How many people have heard the verb to strawn (Vermont), or to strain (Nantucket), meaning to wander about aimlessly ? Could the phrase "I don't guess it's so," be prop erly attributed to a genuine Yankee, speag ing the rustic speech ? A Yankee says "1 reckon" only less often than he says "1 guess." is this as ancient a use with him as "1 guess," or did he some how pick it up from the Southerners. Are doughnuts called simbaUs elsewhere than in Weymouth, Bingham and a few other towns in Southeastern Massachu setts? How far west or north must one go before a doughnut becomel a "nutcake," and how much further west before it becomes a "fried oake ?" What is the origin of the former New England term, now almost obsolete, of "dodunk" for a stupid, simple person? The word is often fsimd in Mr. Roland K. Rob inson's Vermont's stories, which, by the way, are the best Vermont stories yet put in print. . A New Kind. Detroit Free Press. •.

"Come off," exclaimed the other one, as he pried It open with his knife, "there's nothing in it." "That's why we call it the Lllluokalani sandwich," explained the first one, and went un eating.

How a Man Punished an Egg-Stealing Servant. 11-.'.-T-iIo Express. Among the passengers on a train running Into Buffalo yesterday was a spruce looking young farmer who occupied a seat alone and appeared lo be reflecting on something really amusing. He would now and then chuckle to himself as though he had got the better of some one in a way that thickled him. Finally a fellow passenger remarked to him that he looked particularly happy. "Yes," he said, "I had a little fun yester day over a serious matter. We have a girl working for us who Is chain lightning at housework, but Is light fingered. We had missed a good many little things from the house, but I had no evidence that she had taken them. I observed, however, that for some reason every time she went to the home of her parents she carried a bundle of Clothing and brought it back again with pre cise regularity. Among the things we missed most con spicuously was almost the entire pioduciiou of egg-, but we could not conceive of a way In which she could carry them home with out being detected in the act. I was de termined to ascertain if she carried them away in the bundle, and so, when she ar ranged to go home a few days ago, I insisted upon driving over that way. 1 noticed at once that she was not enthusiastic over the proposition. "When all was ready I caught up the regulation bundle and at once could feel the eggs within. There must have been two or three dozen In there. 1 handle it as though it was damage-proof, and she grew corre spondingly nervous. I put the bundle where one of my feet could easily reach it, and on the way 1 would every minute crack an egg and remark that I thought 1 heard peculiar noises now and then, and wondered what it could be. It was a zero day, but when I turned to see how the girl was en joying it the sweat was pouring down her face, and she looked the very picture of despair. I cracked a few more eggs, and remarked about the peculiar sound again. When we reached nor home I.took good care when 1 helped her out to hnnd her the precious bundle. It was in a condition unfit lor transportation, but I placed it in her hands with groat pleasure. I think she never will forget just how she. felt as she endeavored to hang on to the bundle and keep the eggs where she had placed them. I shall not soon forget how she looked. I need not describe how the eggs seemed to enjoy the situation, but let the curtain drop iv fiout of her dress and wraps." BADLY MIXED A Couple of Begging Imposers Be trayed by an Amusing Mistake. New y orlc Mm, Pedestrians on Sixth avenue yesterday during shipping time were much puzzled by an old woman who was playing a barret organ at corner of Thirtieth street. On one end of the organ she had pasted this sign: "Help the Blind." Beneath it ap peared this second appeal : "1 am the Father of Seven Motherless Children." The old woman wore a pair of blue gog gles, behind which her eyes were com pletely hidden. Many Quizzical looks were thrown at her as the passers-by read the inscription on the organ, and one or two persons said some sharp words, but the old woman went on placidly turning the crank. A few blocks down the street the mys tery of the inscription was cleared up. At Twenty-sixth street sat an old man turning music out of a barrel organ as dilapidated as the one whose faint strains could almost be heard from up the street. He, too, wore goggles, and his orgau bore this legend, "Help the blind," and under it, "I am tho mother of seven fatherless children." A mail stepped up to him and said: "Look here, my friend, next time you go out you had better get the sign right on your organ." The grinder must have guessed what the error was, for, pushing the goggles back from his eyes, he peered quickly up and down the street as if looking for a police man. Seeing none, ho leaned over and read tbe sign.

ABOUT FINGER-NAILS. Their Growth, Their Health and the Time to Cut Them. i-liiladelpliia Times. The philosophy of the finger-nails is a most Interesting study, simple though it may appear at first sight. It has been computed that the average growth of the finger-nails is 1-32 of an inch per week, or a little more than an Inch nnd a half per year. The growth, however, de pends to a great extent upon the rate of nutrition, and during periods of sickness it is undoubtedly retarded. It Is understood to grow faster in summer than in winter, and differs for different fingers, being most rapid in the middle linger and slowest la the thumb and little finger. According to the rate of growth agreed upon by eminent authorities, the average time taken for each finger-nail to grow its full length is about four and a half months, and at this rate a man of 70 years of age would have renewed his nails 186 times. Taking the length of eacli nail at half an inch, lie would have grown 7 feet 9 inches of vail on each finger, aud on all his fineers and thumbs an*aggreg«te length of 77 feet 6 inches. It is asserted by some that the nails of the right hand grow faster than those of the left. __ _..-■.:•■ it is interesting to watch the history of a case of disease as recorded upon the finger nails. When we look at the patient's nails we see on each of thera a distinct ridge, showing that the portion ot the nail which has grown since the acute attack is much thinned out. if a person has broken his arm within eighteen months, the ridges on the nails of the hand of the affected arm may be seen, while they will be absent on the other hand. The more acute the illness the sharper will be the ridge. Extreme anxiety and mental depression - have the same ' effect ou ihe nails as physical disease. Tne finger-nail is a very enduring evidence of disease. If there has been an acute rheumatism in the system, with a temper ature of 104 or 105 degrees, the nail will be cut down sharply. In typhoid lever, where the disease comes on gradually, there is no such sharp cut ting ol the nail. '•."-'.•- There are several well-known sayings with regard to the paring of the finger nails, and among them are the following: "Cut them on Monday, cut them for heal ; cut them on Tuesday, cut them for wealth; cut them on Wednesday, cut for a letter; cut them on Thursday tor something better; cut them on Friday, you cut fur a wife; cut them on Saturday, cut for lung life; cut them on Sunday, you cut them for evil, for all of that week you'll be ruled by the devil.''
