.... never forgot that the H' arvards were foe

between New and Old England on the
river ' from which the Pilgrim fathers
. started, has a historic side, and appeals
I to the imagination of the youth of both

of Manhood as was ever witnessed in

have lost no honor. Good judges think

to the race exceeded all expectatimr. ate
,; enthusiastic cheering of the Oxford crew
i was natural: . but before . and after the

There could be no mistake in this.
Englishmen.: are so devoted to manly

ordeal as was- witnessed yesterday. If
