On Wednesday last we published a list of New Zealand amateur championship times. In one of the records a mistake occurred. It was stated that the 220 yards record was 2”sec. This was palpably wrong. It should have read:—2so Yards,—27sce : A. ii. Williams, C.A.A.C., at Christchurch, on 21st April, 1888 ;H. M. Reeves, C.A.A.C , at Timaru, on 2od May, 1888; 11. M, Reeves, C.A.A.C., at Christchurch, on 27th October, 1888; H. M. Reeves, C.A.A.C., at Timaru, on Sth May, 1889. Why is a city called “she?’ Because there is always more or less hustle about a city; and, besides, a city has outskirts, while a “he ” has no skirts of any kind.
