Alfred Shrubb, British Runner,
Loses Race Through Col
. lapse Near Finish.
English Runner Leaps Ahead at
start and Maintains Hot Pace
for Over 20 Miles, but
Fails to Last.
fork. Feb. C. (Special.) In one of the
most exciting Marathon races ever con
tested In this clty'a greatest arena, Tom
Longboat, the Canadian Indian runner,
defeated Alfred Shrubb, the British
runner, tonight. Shrubb started the
race at a breakneck pace, beat several
of Longboat's records for a part of the
distance, but fell from exhaustion
while still In the lead in the latter part
of the twenty-fifth -mile. Longboat,
stiil maintaining his characteristic lop
ing stride, finished the distance alone,
thus Bailing the victory.
The Garden was packed by a most
enthusiastic crowd, and the British
rurtner was the favorite with the on
lookers from the start, though the In
dian had many staunch friends among
the eheerere. Shrubb's pace at the
start plainly exhausted him, and, while
his running wes considered most re
markable, it was evident that his
Judgment, was at fault, and that he
overdid In the early part of the race.
There was some delay in getting the
race started, but at 9:1S o'clock the run
ners were lined up, and a minute later
were sent away. Shrubb immediately
flashed in the lead, and assuming a fast
pace gradually Increased the distance be
tween himself and the Indian runner.
Shrubb's tactics soon became plain. He
Quickened his pace after going a lap
or so. and though Longboat ran with
easy strides, it was evident that the pace
was too stiff for. him. When Shrubb
finished the third lap the Indian was a
tl.ird of a lap behind; and Shrubb finished
the first mile In four minutes, 32 seconds,
the Indian slowly but surely falling be
hind. British Itunner Lap Ahead.
At the end of the mile Longboat was
three quarters of a lap behind and at the
finish of the next or 11th lap. the Indian
-Just trailed astern of the -English run
nr. At the end of the second mile
Shrubb was leading by nearly a lap and
a half. The time for the two miles was
10:1S 4-5.
Shrubb's almost perfect action In
running brought him the admiration of
the crowd, expressed frequently in cheers
and shouts of encouragement.
Longboat, with his usual lpe, how
ever, had a host of friends who did not
seem to lose confidence as the English
man drew Into a comfortable'lead.
"Shrubb can never stand that gait to
the end." shouted one of the Indian's
admirers, and it seemed. as If this sure
ly must be so, especially as Shrubb fin
ished the five-mile distance In i!,:54. not
so very far from the time it take to
cover the distance when trained men aro
running at their best. Shrubb was two
and a half laps ahead at this time.
Gains Grow Greater.
It was noted here that while Shrubb
had gained two laps in the first three
miles, he had added only an additional
half lap in the next two miles. Shrubb'a
plan, it appeared, was to run a fast mile
or two. during which he made decided
gains, and then he would steady down
lo a trot, apparently to reserve his wind
and strength. His sprints always cre
ated an uproar in the crowd, the spec
tators cheering him frantically.
The Englishman gained another two
and a half laps in the second five miles
and was five laps, or half a mile, ahead
whin the ten miles was finished. The
time for the ten-mile mark was 57:32 3-5.
longboat's time for the ten miles In
his race with Dorando was 6S:57 1-5.
nearly a minute and a half behind
fhrubb's time tonight.
Maintaining his fast pace, Shrubb In
creased his lead to six laps at the 12th
mile, but the Indian was not to be wor
riei out of his long, swinging strides.
Near the loth mile he shook himself and
picked up about 50 yards. Shrubb. how
cvp continued to open the distance be
tween himself and the pursuing Indian,
end the 15-mile mark found the English
man 6' laps ahead. Shrubb's time for
the 15 miles was 1 hour. 23 minutes, 2S 4-5
Shrubb's ninning was a revelation to
'.he spectators, who continually cheered
the flying Englishman as he moved
round the track with a machine-like
notion that carried him steadily forward.
. Shrubb secured an additional lap, mak
ing seven laps In all at the seventeenth
mile. During the running of the nine
teenth mile and also the twentieth, Shrubb
Placed the eighth lap between himself and
Longboat. The time for the twenty-mile
mark was 3 hours, 1 minute 25 4-5aseconds.
Stop for Xcw Shoes.
. Shrubb. In the twenty-first mile, sud
3cnly stopped to change his shoes. Dur
ing his brief absence from the track
Longboat gained one of his, lost laps, but
Shrubb, coming on the course again,
started out at a lively clip with the evl
Jpnt intention of regaining the lost lap.
Tom Flannagan. the Indian's old man
axer, brought Longboat's wife out on the
track to encourage her husband.
Pandemonium broke loose in the garden
during the twenty-second mile. when
Shrubb came down to a walk for a few
yards. It was apparent that he was In
some distress, but he soon was off again
with a swinging stride, though with a
lower pace.
Indian Gains Heavily.
Cheered on by his bride and the
shouts of his friends. Longboat In
creased his pace and soon began to cut
down rapidly the lead of the now fast
tlrlng Englishman. The end of the 23d
mile found Longboat only four laps be
hind Shrubb, who frequently broke his
pace and walked to rest himself. The
tndian in the first half of the 21th mile
hrought forth a hurricane of applause
ay regaining another lap on his rival.
Shrubb was in evident distress, and It
as only a game effort on his part that
kept him struggling on.
Ixngboat regained another lap at the
end of the 24th mile, and was now set
ting the pace. Thousands of spectators
yelled and cheered the Indian as he
slowly moved abreast of the English
man, who was now but a scant lap
ahead as the pair moved on the second
lap of the 25th mile. Longboat ran
without any seeming distress. Shrubb
fell back to a walk.
Longboat quickly took the lend. The
Englishman collapsed on the track, leav
ing the triumphant Longboat to finish
the race alone.
Previous to the Marathon, the five-mile
match race between Robert Hailen. or
New Tork. and Mike Spring, of Brook
lyn, was run. Spring was allowed a
handicap of ten seconds. Hailen won by
one and three-quarters laps. Time
27:20 1-5.
Longboat's time for the race was 2
hours 63 minutes 40 2-6 seconds, which is
nearly eight minutes behind the record
made by Dorando, the Italian, In his
race with Johnny Hayes, the Olympic
Marathon winner last Fall. The Indian

BURNS. Or., Feb. 6. (Special.) The oldest horse In Oregon died
on January 27 at the old Captain Kelley home In this city, where
the animal has had the most tender care since the death of his old
master it few years ago. This Indfan pony was once the property of
"Captain Jack," the Indian fighter of Lava Beds fame, and was cap
tured, among other ponies, by a company of soldiers of whom Captain
Harrison Kelley, then of Jackson County, was the commander, and, was
presented to Captain Kelley In tht Spring of 1873, being then nearly
seven years old, making him at the time of h)s death nearly 43 years
The animal was evidently of royal Indian pony blood, as he was
remarkable for endurance, superior Intelligence and a gait that was
very easy for his rider. Up to a short time before Captain Kelley's
death he rode the pony quite often, but of late years the animal has
been a privileged character, roaming at will during. the Spring and
Summer, and receiving careful attention during the Winter. The bid
fellow winked out peacefully.

of next week, with a performance each
evening. Monday night "Lord Dun
dreary" will be given again, and Tues
day night "Richelieu." More than ordi
nary interest attaches to the production
of "Richelieu," because of the fact that
It Is virtually only the second time Mr.
Sothern has given it on any stage. His
initial portrayal of this role was made in
San Francisco, where he was enthusias
tically received.
The Sothern company comes In Its
special train and carries all its scenery
with It. Because of floods In California
a long detour by way of Ogden had to
be made, but obstacles have been over
come and the opening bill of "Lord
Dundreary" will be given at the mat
inee this afternoon Instead of last
Thursday night as announced.

Suffered Terribly from Eczema
which Made Hands and Feet Swell,
Peel and Get Raw Arms Affected,
Too Gave Up Hope of Cure.
"I suffered from eczema on my hands,
arms and feet for about twelve years,
my hands and feet would swell, 6 weal
and itch, then would become callous
and get very dry, then peel off and
get raw. I tried most every kind ol
salve and ointment without success,
only got temporary relief. As 60on as J
would leave off using them I would t
as bad as ever. I tried several doctors,
took arsenic for two years and at lasl
gave up thinking there was a cure fol
eczema. A friend of mine Insisted on
my trving the Cuticura Remedies but,
supposing they were the same as other
'cures' I had tried, I did not give them
a trial until I got so bad that I had ta
do something. I secured a cake of Cu
ticura Soap, a box of Cuticura Oint
ment and a bottle of Cuticura Resolvent
and by the time they were used I could
see a vast improvement and my hands
and feet were healed up in no time. I
used several bottles of Cuticura Re
solvent. This was over a year ago and
have had no trouble since. I think 1
am entirely cured. Charles T. Bauer,

"My mother is a great suf
ferer from rheumatism, and Dr.
Miles' Anti-Pain Pills is the only,
remedy that relieves her."
Roycefield, N. J.
The pains of rheumatism are
almost invariably relieved with
Dr. Miles' Anti-Pain Tills. They
also overcome that nervous irri
tation which prevents sleep be
cause they soothe the nerves. To
chronic suffers they are invalu
able. When taken as directed,
they relieve the distress and
save the weakening influence of
pain, which so frequently pros
trates. Many sufferers use them
whenever occasion requires with
the greatest satisfaction, why
not you? They do not derange
the stomach nor create a habit.
Why not try them ? Get a pack
age from your druggist. Take it
according to directions, and if
it does not benefit he will return
.your money..
