THE CAULFIELD MEETING.

This meeting opened on Saturday. The sound pace set by Key ill the Caulfield Stakes suited Coil, who caught her below the distance, romping home.

The Labor Day sports take place on the Caledonian Ground on Wednesday next and a very attractive programme has induced numerous entries for nearly every one of the events, and keen and exciting c impetitions are expected. Besides running and" walking events there are four bicycle races, and as the handicapperß seem to have made very exact calculations (so the critics say) the public can anticipate interesting and close finishes. There are items for both professionals and amateurs. In connection with the sports an art union is being conducted this year, and as the proceeds are to be devoted to the very laudable object of giving the free library movement a help on the Committee expect that all those who have the welfare of this proposed institution at heart—and they take it that everyone in the community would like to see a free

library—will purchase tickets according to their meaus. The members of the Labor Day Committee feel that they have done their part, and it now remains with the public to say whether the free library movement will be given a substantial impetus or not.
