Portobello Swimming Club

On the mornings of Wednesday and Thursday the deep-diving medal of this

club was competed for by five members. The depth of water varied from 13

to 18 feet. Mr. Robert Smith was very successful in recovering the

plates from the bottom, bringing up six on the first and two on the

second morning, with which number he secures first honours. The second

place was taken by Mr. J. Wallace James. Mr. Smith, the medallist, is

deaf and dumb.--Scotsman, Aug. 29th.
