TJo what he would Capt. Crocker could
only maintain his lead on the wind
ward work. At one time the Beatrice
would (rain a few lengths, but soon the
Owecnce would make a spurt and gain
It back. The elowneM of the sailing is
shown by the fact that there were but
1 1 seconds of difference in the sailing
of the two cracks in the loug boat from
Nuliimt to Minot s. (in the last reach
in from Nahant to the finish the wind
freshened, and the Beatrice nlainlv
showed her superiority, as she carried
her sail splendidly and uropped the
keel boat sloadily. 'J'he Beatriue won
the race finally by the small margin of

A BEAUTIFUL CUP.
II W ill Prove a Mliniiliia to Atlantic
The yacht which wins the Manhattan
Athletic club cup will carry oft the
handsomest prize of tlve year. Few
know probably that there is a club !

the cnae none the loss. Early this last
spring, just after the club had taken
possession of its new home, and when
"tliinffs M. A. C.-ward genurolly were
booiuliifr, the Men of merging the
yachting department into a club
was BugKuatnd, . und eventually

'is tho Cherry lliamond Yacht

Fire EsmpH for 8r)iuo1 Hulldlnei,
A novel gystora of Are escape for school
buildings has boon suggested by Capt. Kea-
gan, usKiatunt ohiof of clia Boston Are dopart-
niont, wnion upon m race looira an an might
prove of considerable practical value. UjB
idea la to utilize the large yard area to be
found about nearly oyory school house in
Boston and eroot an ornamental iron tower a
abort distance from tho building.
This tower would contain a broad iron
staircase leading from tho top to the ground,
J'romoaoh lloor of tho school house a oov-
ered bridge would lead into the tower, and
iiwuwii iwtmuig li uiu uie nuuooi room to Ene
bridge would bo kept unlocked during school
hours. The rooms on oaoh floor would oon-
noot with each other, and in case of (ire the
aoholars oould have unobstructed access to
thobrldgc. By such au arrangement, whon-
ever a fire broke out the would always be
an egress open, and even if matters became
serious, the iron tower and bridges would
, romula unharmed. Tho plan appeal's to be
i Js'said, not bo lmlc'Ii, more than what is laid
- oue-ion, the 'presiait fire seae6. And wo
should'thiiilt the ate plan might be adopted

THE HIGHLANDERS AT ALMA.
dlr Colin Ciimpbtll'i ppal to National
l'rldo Tlirlllliiir Story,
Onr fine brigade of guards was severely
out np whoa the Highlanders drew near, and
then, as Klnglake tolls us, a man In one of
he regiments reforming on the slops, cried,
In the deep and honest bitterness of his heart:
"Let the Scotsmen go onl they'll do the
workl" and with his throe kilted battalions,
Sir Colin, whose horse was shot nnder him,
advanced to meet twelve of the enemy.
"Now, men," said he, "you are going Into
action, anil remember this, that whoever is
wounded, I don't care what his rank Is, must
lie whore he falls. No Boldier must carry off
wounded men. If any man does such a
thing his name shall ho stuck up in his parish
kirk. Be steady keep siloneo-flro lowl
Now, men, the army is watching us! Make
me proud of my Highland brigade!"
So beautifully dow tho author of "Eothen"
-an eye witness of this part of the battle-:
describe thoir movements, that we cannot
resist quoting him again. "Theground they
iiuu to aseonu was a goon ileal more steep and
broken than the slojie close beneath the ro
doubt. In the land whore those Scots are
bred tliore are shadows of snillno- clrairla
skimming up the mountain sido, and their

is smooth, eiwy and swift. Smoothly, easily

tartans ranged dark in tbo valley; now their
