Journal) the Herald trophy which he won easiiy'on Christmas Day, Alex. Decoteau blew into Edmonton from the southern -city yesterday. Decoteau is looking fresh as a daisy and, the lifctle stunt he pulled off in Calgary, hasn't enlarged his cranium in. the least He will -continue to train faithfully and when any other alluring race looms up he will be out for the laurels. "I knew from .tee bark of the ar- tillery that I could win the race a explained Decoteau. "I felt better in my life. -I was in ex- cellent shape and when I first gallop- ed ahead I fully, intended to hold the pace and win the race. I knew I .could beat Slecklenberg. I had that "much confidence in my own ability. But I can truthfully say I was rather afraid ,of the fellows from the coast" Decoteau is a runner of no small ability and he should be looked after "'carefully. In those big races in ths east next year is where Decoteau should enter and undoubtedly the Etifiiozuon colors would play a big part.
