A Clever Gymnast

Walter Stevens, a member of the British Mission to the Deaf and Dumb,

last year won the first prize for "all round performances" at the

Gymnasium of the Young Men's Christian Association. The prize consisted

of a very handsome gold and silver medals with silver buckle and strap.

He was successful in 1883 and 1884 in winning second prizes, but this

year he carried off in grand style the much-coveted first prize. His

performance on the horizontal bar was truly marvellous.
