George Gabriel of New Haven has left a will bequeathing $30,000 to his wife. At her death $15,000 of this sum will go to Yale College. Gabriel was an umbrella mender, and it was not supposed that he was worth any such amount of money.
Last Wednesday afternoon, at New Haven, W. G. Lane, Yale '88, ran three miles against time and broke two records, the American amateur record for 1 1-4 miles and for three miles.
