The test of strength occurred in that city one day last week, at a gymnastic tournament, at which Dr. Winship performed his great muscular feat of lifting nine kegs of nails weighing 1,000 pounds, and raising, with the aid of harness on his shoulders, 1,517 pounds. He was succeeded by Thompson, who, commencing with the last lift of the Doctor, then went on adding weights and lifting, with harness on his shoulders and hips, until the numbers stood successively, 1,536, 1,636, 1,736, 1,836, 1,936, 2,036, 2,136 pounds--a very remarkable lift, the latter, to be sure. He also experimented with dumb- bells weighing 100 and 165 pounds.--Another competing gymnast, named Curtis, "pushed" first 130 pounds, and then 150 pounds in each hand with the pulley, and lying down upon his back put up 110 pounds in each hand. But the feat of the evening was the great lift of Thompson, and the judges so considered it in the award of the $200 prize to him.
