I SPORTING ITEMS. I Roquefort has arrived at Alresford to be trained by Swatton. Mr Mayer's nomination for the Waterloo Cup has not as yet been backed for shilling by the right party. The proposed cross-country runs over the Championship Course on January 17 and 24 are abandoned, being deemed unnecessary. A filly by Discord, in T. Brown's stables at Newmarket, pulled up lame after a five-furlong spin in company with Wassand^on Saturday. Aunicycle,fortravellingonice, is beinp: exhibited in New York. The machine is said to be capable of great speed, and to be very difficult to overturn. Five greyhound saplings by Milliugton out of Lady Lizzie, were sold at Aldridge's on Saturday for 501gs., a brindled and white dog being pur- chased by Mr Fletcher for 180g. Mr I'Anson has sold the chestnut colt Maronite, by Syrian out of Miss Marion, and the colt has left Highfield House for Mr Holman's training establishment in Wiltshire. The president of the C.U.B.C., Mr Churchill, Third Trinity, has arranged to be in Cambridge on Thursday next, and a crew may be expected to appear on the following day. John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1885 has just been issued. The work is invaluable to all who take an interest in cricket, and we are not surprised to learn that it has a large circula- tion. The Duke of Westminster wishes that some- thing could be done to encourage the distribution of thoroughbred sires over the country, but it is to be feared the present state of agricultural depression is not over favourable to working out such an idea. A rumour has gained credence to the effect that The Friar has been tried much superior to his stable companion, St. Helena, but there is no oundation for any such statement, and beyond his good looks and breeding but little is known of his present capabilities, in London on Saturday night 500 to 20 was taken about the Friar for the Two Thousand Guineas, and 2,000 to 40 about the same colt for the Derby. During his recent visit to England, Mr Good- win, private trainer to the Captain Fagg con- federacy of Rome, purchased the following blood stock, which left England on New Year's Day Ryegrass, Bronze, Hisna, Fille du Regiment, and two Irish steeplechasers by Solon and Uncas. r A grand skating fete was organised on Satur- day by the Paris Gun Club, in the Bois de Boulogne. Amongst the notabilities present were to be seen the Baroness Hottinguer, NIme, Ephrussi, Mdlle. de Rothschild, Prince de Sasan, MM. Blount, Hennessy, and many others. The English and American colonies were well repre- sented. The honours of the fete fell to a young American, Mr George Frost, who executed some marvellous feats on the ice, which elicited the applause of all present. Messrs R. C. Naylor and Joe Davis, together with a friend, witnessed the work accomplished by Bookworm and Drakensberg on Newmarket Heath on Saturday. It took the form of a two miles ghllop in slow time. St. George and Queen of Beauty have returned to Ireland from Manchester, and consequently will not fulfil their engagements this week. Wavelet has arrived at Manchester and will run in the Maiden Hurdle-race to-morrow. At the Palais Royal on Saturday, J. Roberts; jun. and J. North played a game at billiards of 1000 up even, Roberts spot barred, and North all in. Roberts won by 143, his chief breaks being 143, 117, and 130, .North's best being 110 (21 spots), 95, 73, and 66. On Saturday afternoon the members of the Thames Hare and Hounds Cross Country Club met to decide their race for the Short Distance Challenge Cup, about four miles five furlongs. The start took place from the club's headquarters, the King's Head, Roehampton, and the finish was at the "Well House," on Wimbledon Common, a short distance from the club's rendezvous. The race needs little description, as Maurice Wilson (the holder) took the lead at the start, and, maintaining it throughout, won very easily by about 200 yards from Percy H. Stenning.
