[Pib Pause Association.—Copyright.J

LONDON, October 6. In the 120 Yards Scratch Swimming Race at St. George’s Baths Helling*, with a flying start, won the first heat easily, with Green (the southern counties champion) second. In the second heat Allason beat Lindberg by two feqt after a splendid race. In the final heat Helling# was the fastest away and led throughout, winning by five yards. Time, Imin 20|ieo. MELBOURNE SPORTING ■ MELBOURNE, October 7. It was a beautiful morning at Flemihgton, And the track was very fast. Toreador, looking well, galloped a mile nicely in Train SOsec. Nor’-east displayed much brilliancy whilst striding over si x furlongs in 1 min 19$ sec. Parthenopoeus executed a splendid round on the sand track hi 2min 29sec. The first mile and a-q natter was traversed in 2min ,3seo. Cocos, spurted four furlongs in 52sec, which time Vigorous beat by Delaware looked a perfect picture while indulging in long, strong work. Amberita And Fucile ran a mile in Imin 49sec. Keera and Dreamland moved sluggishly at the conelusion of a mile gallop. Paul Pry electrified the touts by dashing over a mile in Imin 44sec, finishing some lengths in advance of Coil and Metford, who took matters more sedately. Paul Pry’s performance has not been equalled for years at Flemington, but there are doubts as to whether he was shod, and he ojosely shaved all the corners. 3,000 to 130 has been accepted about Toreador for the Melbourne Cup. An offer wa* made to take 5,000 to 230 about Trent for each Cup, but 1,000 to 10 is the best price offered against him for the Caulfield Cup for big money.
