In this case also the horses were.'of different types but the decision went-to the horse of road character. Plenty of Saddle Horses The saddle horses were a big class but rather mixed in type, varying from the slender thoroughbred to the eleven-fifty cow horse. It was decid- ed to split the class by giving a spe- cial for cow horses. This drew four, of which string Tom McCaugherty took- first honors with a quick acting bay. Ewing was close after. In the remaining honors there were three of thoroughbred type and a black nearer .pony height and a nice norse on the small sorL side "but also a little for gentleman's grass in the middle7 of the field.! Thought it was mostly straight away trip the horse took the work seriously j and went up with a horri. ble and unseemly suddenness.. Tom i won approval also. j An Indian took the third chance j on a sorrel of about 16 hands with a' back just- made for lifting. The neche was piled up; on the first excuse and i got a successful nasal hemmorage. The white man has him beaten at his own game. Young Dan Hassan undertook to ride the sorrel later but the raw edge was off and the horse! only negotiated the track, jumped ditch, fell and shot Dan off without hurting him and the game was over. The money was divided between'! Grady and Three Persons. A2ST OFFER WHICH MEETS THE SPECIAL, WANTS OF CLASSES OF READERS.
