fetloclc Thousands of people and each one seemed to bring tho almighty dollar swarmed around tho betting ring Money flowed like water continual streams of it going into the bookmakers stands where the horde of clerks were kept busy handling the tickets From the first bet to tho last seemed equally anxious as to their choice in the third race Such y days sport raining though it was and hard too has seldom boon grandlycontested races and a third close enough to be somewhat doubtful made up the ffrst part of the programme which was as follows A First race throefourths of a m He handi cap S added

They ran in this man ner to tho half when St Charles and West chester took up the running and wore rac like troopers around the back turn into the stretch Whips were drawn and St Charles responded sooner than Wcstchester who lost a neck but he made it good in the few jumps and at it again they went hammer and Hamilton tho colored boy was playing a lively tattoo on ribs of St Charles with tho spurs and the great and only was turning tho whalebone into Westchester at a rate that would make anything run Sfc Charles got his head in front at tho and now from out the bunch in the the whip

run and Chaos now had to hustle for himself And hustle he did Tournament had half a length the best of it and Hamilton sitting down on Chaos set sail for him Inch by inch that half length disappears and it is now a head Only a sixteenth to go Soo tho people rush out into the pelting storm Women heedless of their gaudy trappings rose up too and cheer lapon cheer went up Hay ward sitting TJKE A STONE MAN upon tho back of Tournament his lips close to the horses ear as he leans forward he seems to whisper to his gallant steed But Hamilton is whipping and Chaos is coming Ride now 11 ay ward Draw out that whip and smite taim for he will not heed the words you whisper to him Strike those reeking sides covered with foam and rain Let your cap go for the wind seems to but make sport of you Rido Ride for your life for the black demon is looking you in tho eye and the race is his No not vet Loud are the shouts Hats canes and all are lost in the turmoil Chaos can you not lot out one more Cannot those already flying foot go faster No Then yon cannot win for Tournament knows no quit or falter Game and true as his father before him he will not bo beaten The wire is ten foot away but further effort now seems useless With a minhty swing each jockey endeavors to land his mount ahead but alas for thorn they swung together and if the horses had been one it could not have been closer Side by side and NOSE EVEN WITH NOSE they are now over the line No eyecan tell the difference it is so slight And when the judges announce it a dead heat tho peo ple fairly go wild but such it was and
