The Race. — Mr Manning, with his usual punctuality, had bis riders weighed out be» times, and some 20 minutes before the time the telegraph informed the expectant sportsman that the field would be represented by 27 runners, the majority of whom were put to rights at the Six - Mile Bottom stables. As usual- the toilettes of the favourites attracted a large number of admirers, who wanted to witness their preliminary canters and then made the best of their way toward* the ending-post. The statt was not long delayed, Mr Mac George being fortunate in getting them in order. On the fall of the flaff they quitted the post in close company. When fairly settled down to their stride Adamite, making use of his light impost, rusbed to the front, and came on in advance of hia followers wide on the right, clear of Iron Duke, Rhidorroch, Chippendale, Dresden China, Bay Archer, Prince Geoxge, Westbourne, and Isonomy ; to these succeeded Attalus, Parole, Discord, Sunburn, The Bear, Jagellon, and Breadfinder at the head of the remainder. They ran thus, with but trifling alteration, tbr myh '• Choke Jade," but immediately they breasted the hill to orosa the Flat the leading division opened out, the favourite afcill holding his own wide of his horses on the

right, Rhidorroch at this point lying wide on the side, the pair being followed by Bay {Archer and his stable companion, Iron Duke, with Dresden China, Chippendale, Jagellion, and Attalus lying up ; the rearward horses as usual, although the pace hitherto had been but indifferent, presenting a lengthened trail. At the T. Y.C. post Adamite gave evidence of having had enough of it, and a3 they neared the rails he was fairly; done with, as also were Bay Archer and Prince George ; and for a stride or two Iron Duke and Dresden China were indulged with the lead, but *hey had no sooner passed over the brow than Chippendale, closely followed by Westbourne and the gallant Isonomy, joined, and the lot ran in close company into the Abingdon Mile bottom. Here Dresden China gave evidence of defeat, and was immediately headed by Westbourne, who, on making his effort on rising the hill, was sadly hampered, and suffered defeat from Chippendale by a length and a half, Dresden China being third, a length in the rear. Isonomy was fourth, two lengths off j Jagellon being fifth. Bay Archer sixth, Advance seventh, Rhidorroch eighth, Iron Duke ninth, and Parole next, with Barde and the Bear as whippers-in. Time, by Benson's chronograph, 4 mm 1 sec. Time last year, 4 mm 2 sec. Middle Park PiiAtjb of 500 soys, added to a sweep of 30 boys each for two-year-olds ; colts, Bst 101b ; fillies and geldings.

The favourite jumped away with a slight lead o£ Prestonpans, Grace Gup, and Dora; to these succeeding Brother to'Ersilia, Evasion, Zealot, and Poulet, in which position tVey ran till into the Abingdon Mile bottom. Hers Grace Cup, who ran anything but kindly, challenged the leader, but he immediately disposed of ber, and coming on won by half a lpngth. Dora was third, thrae lengths off Grace Cup ; Zealot fourth.

At a special meeting of St. Joseph's Branch HA.C.B. Society h«ld last week it was resolved that the annual fete should be held on Boxing Day. A strong and influential committee was appointed for the purpose of making the necessary arrangements.

Some interesting evidence (says the Daily sNews)aj to the character < f modern fighting is upplied by a recently-published volume, the report of the- Stafford House Committee on their operations in the late Russo-Turkißh War, Besides a " record of operations," the book contains some general reports on surgical matters by the chiet surgeons employed. In these there is to be found nearly unanimous testimony, fir^t as to the comparative fewness of wounds from the " white i arm," as swords, bayonets, lances and such-like weapons are collectively termed in French military language. The second point of interest is the greater ease with which tuch wounds healed when they were not at once fatal. Sword wounds were more numerous in the latter part of the war than in the earlier, Bays Mr Barker, and they usually healed easily. Bayonet wounds were much rarer. " Among thousands of wounded men," saya Dr Pinkerton, "I did not sea more than half a dozen suffering from sabre, lance, or bayonet wounds." And he adds that the experience of others whom he questioned was the same. "The number of bayonet wounds coming under observation waa exceedingly small," says Mr Mackellar, and though sabre wounds were more frequent in this gentleman's experience, they were chiefly due to wanton attacks on non- combatants : not to fair fighting. The fact seems to be that not only is actual hand-to-hand fighting V6ry rare ia modern warfare, but that modern weapons are very ill-adapted for it. The lance requires elbow-room and very adroit management ; the sabre needs very great bodily strength, and not a little skiil, to make it effective; the bayonet is "a moat clumsy weapon.", The bowie-knife and the short Ghoorka dagger are, thinks Dr Pinkerton, much more effective than any of our cutting arms. On the other hand, the modern riflebullet is allowed to be a terrible weapon in its effects, tyen where it does not kill, and the wounds it is flicts seem to be much more serious than those of the old spherical ball. The monthly battalion parade of the Volunteers took place at the Garrison Hall on Monday, and was well attended, consideriag the bad weather, by members of the City Guards, North Dunedin Rifles, and Wakari Rifles. After some movements were gone through in the Hall the companies dispersed. We learn that the Waipori Road Board are endeavouring to^ have their district exempted from the operation of the Protection of Animals Act, so far as hares are concerned, as those animals have recently done a great deal of damage to gardens and orchards. Mr William Fraser, of Lo veil's Flat, while fißhingattheWater-of-Leith on Monday, caught no less than 56 trout, tunning from a quarter to one and a-half pound in weight. The whole weighed a little over 20 pounds. Tho programme of the regatta to be held on the Taieri River at Henley on Boxing Day, under the management of the Committee of the Otago Rowing Club, has been issued, and as the prize-list is a very liberal one, we expect that a large number of entries will ba received for the various events. The list of patrons includes* twenty or thirty well-known and influential men, while the names of the Committee of Management are a sufficient guarantee that the regatta will be well conducted. The course is a remarkably good one. A new feature in the programme isthe Four oar Outrigger Race and the Committee would appear to have spared no efforts to induce compbtitora from distant partd of the Colony to compote. Over Ll2O is offered in money piiz «, in addition to valuable trophies, and as a large propoition of this amount has yet to bo collected, it ia to bo hoped that the public will respond in a liberal manner, Strong efforts have been made to in-

duce crews from Christchurch, Wellington, and Wanganui to compete ; and we may fairly expect that the next regatta will be the most successful ever held in Otago.
