Straight, clean struggle s for superiority, horse a-ainst horse, were the only issues, and the best won. Gretua Green, a highly tried gucceisful campaigner at the Florida "rack, took first place la the Carter, the event of the day. That victory wag marred in some popular esteem by a start which appeared from .the grand stand to be rather ragged.

The tenor of the criticism is that a race across the Atlantic Ocean would be too dangerous. The yachts in order to make speed might be dan- gerously rigged and lightly construct- ed. Admiral .Montague points out that a-5 this is an American race, ra- ther than an international affair, the start and ending marks, should both be in American waters. It is a ques- tion whether there will be British re- presentation in the race. However, sufficient entrants have already been secured to ensure success. There wal be two German yachts, two French yachts, one from a Baltic state, and probably two from America. Fads and fancies race they might be called the whims and humors of the thoroughbred.

After Sysonby's death, the pony, was inconsolable for a week or 'more, but soon transferred his affec- tions to Wild Mint, and afterwards to the star of each particular year. Colin, the matchleao Commando colt was the pony's greatest chum, and in their warming-up gallops before the big races, the real runner would lay by those most concerned with uki- j mate success by the ultra-particular i one. i Usually the fads and fancies of race horses lake the form of fondness for some'animal or particular person. Oft- times, however, it is in the form of a violent dislike for sounds, color, or for persons. There is not a soul who has attended a race in last tea years who is not familiar with James R.

Gcats, rabbits, a parrot, dogs, ponies, special stable hands and even a rooster went along.

Golf Telegrams The Latest Fad Mr. Rockefeller and Others Are En abled by the ew Low Rates to Send Out Their Scores. It rather vras a fortunate thing tbat the telegraph companies put on tha i'fty words for the of tec'' ra1> l r.ight, otherwise the golfers would no' have been enabled to advise friends of their scores on the link: each night without an expense tha woui- be prohibitive. Take Brother John D. Rockefeller for instance. Ever since that nigh letter idea became vogue he has kep the wires hot pach night from Pocan tico advising his friends of the joll good scores he has made. Each telegram he sends begin with the word "fore." which is a ti to the recipient that he shall loo out for startling information. The operator balked at first, insis ;.ng tha: such words as were code words, and tha they didn't come under the night le ter rates. A goir rules oook and a little per- j sinsion convinced him of his error. and he has had a good, healthy night's work since that :ime merely in send- ing nighi letters on the great game.
