Canoe Club Race.

Yesterday afternoon, according to announcement, the Canoe Club held their annual fall race. The course was triangular, with the starting point near Union boat-house. The first half mile was in a northwesterly direction, the second half mile in a southeasterly direction, and the last two miles from there straight back to boat-house. The contestants were F. J. Proctor, '87, A. G. Webster, R. G., E. K. Dunham, M. S., and T. Dunham M. S. At first there was no wind, but when about half over the course a light breeze sprang up. The race was close throughout between Messrs. Webster and Proctor, the latter leading till near the finish, when the wind died away and Mr. Webster won by half a length. The two Dunhams were way behind, Mr. T. Dunham finally coming in third. Handsome silk banners were presented to Messrs. Webster and Proctor.
