Rowing Last Saturday Cambridge won the Boat Race by 21

lengths, after leading Oxford all the way. The generalship of Mr. Brocklebank, the Cambridge stroke, was faultless. The losers were a better crew than any produced by Oxford in recent years, and they raced very pluckily. Cambridge has now won eight years in succes-, sion. Later in the afternoon the Head of the River races, which become more popular every year, were rowed on the ebb from Mortlake to Putney. 121 crews took part. These races were a great invention ; they have given a stimulus to every rowing club in the country. The only foreign visitors were a German crew, who were fairly good, coming 56th in the time-list.
