Then Pearce,; gained slightly, and in", the first minutes had rowed 38 "strokes to Arnst's 34. At Uhr's Po\M (about;* 500 ' yards); Arnst V seemed !to ,f alter, and ; was then a length behind. This was 1 , ; i quickly increasedVto* two lengths, and the ; rumerous friends of the challenger wore ■well pleased. ' . ~ Pearce continued to row a faster stroke: . than his rival, who was plugging along .« J mechanical 33 per minute. Indeed, he ii'P l ' ihi3 going -nearly pliihe way: , Fearce ya-'i doing ensper work, and was ' making ■'.><« po-cC, for j it '/was generally known, thus ii ; Arnst] got in front lie would,, retardthe., cad, , throughout. • . ' , , After sculling for three minutes Arnst; be- ; gan ; to; hold his own, : and soon afterwards he regained "the: lost' distance slowly'-but surely.:''.;-'; •■ ' . , Approaching Blaxland's Point, .Pearce went rather far in, and Arrist followed him —an error; of judgment. Pearce must .be allowed ample room to get clear, and as ; Arnst had drawn level there was a; fear that an infringement of the ; rules would ; take place. Arnst, with superb coolness, stopped rowing, land Pearce passed the.mile beacon in sm. 355., with -a lead of a full length. Once • clear of the point. Arnst put ; in; some par- r ticularly ; strong." work, and of a ;■: better, class ■ than he had shown on the-first; mile. '^ Ha had been sluggish on the catch, and there was a lack; of dash and lift about his rowing. Pearce, on the other hand, - . was shaping better than in' previous races, and his work was, effective. ■ ' *- On -, the ' half-mile between Blaxland's and Putney Z Arnst made his ; effort, , and drew largely on bin reserve ; power.; After rowing seven minutes' the boats ', were level, -which; I ; means that Pearce had lost a length in less* , than a qu.viW-raiis. " -: > , ' Ariist r.i w took thedetd. : uiid ih; betti'ag was >vt lo>:> j odds on the t;'.--ampion.'

'395.,' and. be •v'.Tirf rowinr. bsfcter than ho had been; , He increased his lead to four .lengths en tho next quarter-mile. • The race was dearly • much in favour of the' champion, but; the ..numerous friends of , Pearce urged..him to : renew his efforts, and by way of encourage- , ment, yelled to him that tho - man in front . was done,; and was : .coming ; back i to- him. Pearce was very game, and ; did not i spare himself,; but his task was an impossible one. The two miles was reached in about 11m. 503., and hcre'Poarco' was 10s. slower. ,-\ "■' '■: Passing Gladesville: both men •••«r,.(/a-codd deal 'spent, and ; Arnst ■;.' seem <•<■ •.•orit.r-nJ to retain; his.lead 1 of five lenguis.

After the]race Arnst said: " Sinco I last met him Pearce has improved 7out! of sight. The race proved conclusively that he is '■. a] much better man than I gave him credit for, being, ' and:,'-]I can .tell : you, he ] pushed me harder than any of the men I've] yet met.' "Whv, Barry was only child's play "compared to Pearce." Pearce, asked if he,j intended to] again challenge ; the champion, ; remarked: 4 ."No, I; don't j intend making : another, match with him ; '■'■'. lie's too_ hot.,;,' He'll beat "them, all, and for some time to come.
