If the pony was out of of an operatic srar by her manager, his sight, the big race horse, which or one with an artistic temperament possessed a heart twice the size of a by those most concerned with ultl-, normal horse's head, and lungs of like the ultra-particular capacity, would be restless and un- mate succes.s by ea^y. .Vfter Sysonby's death, tlie pony was inconsolable for a week or more, but soon transierred his affections to Wild -Mint, and afterwards to the star of eacli particular year. -------- ......... ,,-,.

The tenor of the criticism is ; that a race across the Atlantic Ocean i L'sually the fads and fancies of race would be too dangerous. The yachts horses take the form of fondness for in order to make speed might be dan-1 some animal or particular person. Oft-gerously rigged and lightly construct- times, liowever, it is in the form of a ed.

There Will be two German .vaclits. two JVench yacht*, one trom a Baltic tate, and probably two from .\in^iea. iiss to�ay, tae regulars appl,vuded the teat wildly. Not a horse car left the great train ing tracks at Gravesend and Sheep's Mead Bay for the winter campaigns without some sort v/i an equine pet aboard. Uoata, rabbits, a parrot, dogs ponies, special stable nands and even a rooster went along. KamotM horses abroad also have had their pe�B, as witness the cat which travelled with Best Man. a not ed performer on the English turf of a decade ago; the pony Pretty Polly fan cied, and without which shs would not extend hersett a bit in her morning gallops unles she stouu approvingly by Sceptre, too, another great horse on the UngUsh turf, had a pet pony, as did Robert the Devi.. The last nam' ed racer Invariably ^uawed good-naturedly at his pet's tall, so that tbe appendage was in a constant state of raggedaess.

Waving a red rag at a bull is a byword of many years' standing, but blue seems a color most race horses dislike extremely-why, of course, none can tell. High strung as are all thoroughbreds, unusual noises, too, affect their racing qualltie�. Some, however, fairly revel in the blare of the band on a big race day, and seem to know the cheers of the crowd as tile drive for the finish comes, are meant as an actual inspiration for tliem. Straining every muecle to get past the wire first many a game horse gives Just one ounce more to his effort as the frantic shouts of the spectators reach his ears-"game as a real race horse." Golf Telegrams The Latest Fad Mr. Rockefeller and Others Ars Enabled by the elgn whh the club. From their letters it aeeme to be tbe 'Impreasion that tbe Lethbrldge taam la reported to be a live bunch aad have a good chance for landing both Senior and Intermediate honora thIa year. There certainly appeara to be more iatereat in the game tbia year than laat, more playera have been out to practice and many more have algnltted their Intentiona of coming out. A aub- falr-nlnded people there waa nothing to Juatify one player In harming another. There is nothing In tbe rales to Juatify it and In many of the aenlor games much of the rough work, croan cheeking, etc., baa been eliminated and faat atlck handMag, torch playing and accurate paaalag baa taken Hn place. In fact, there la now aa aiach adence In Laoroaae aa la aajr other game and In aome caaaa more. It Is regretUble that there Is atUI so much rough playing In Lacroaae games, bitt it must be remembered that In the majority of cases hard feellBga among the players Is the cauae. for nfhile Lacroaae never waa aad never wtH be, a parlor game. Tbe roughness does not belong to It aad should aot be countenanced by the refereea. it la also regrettable that at the aame time rotugh work fiada favor wHb a majority of the apectatora. if It bappena fie be the home team which la making tbe rough play. In tUa way the spectators themaelvea are eaeonraglng rough work among the playera. In fact the writer haa played In games whan the speotatora have applauded rough work and called upon the players to do bodily harm to the oppoalag team. It Is to be hoped that In the coming season the home teama wiU receive the support of the cRJiena who will Judge the play impartMly. and condemn nny rough playlat that Is unnecessary. The games thin year win piobabiy be played on the ball grounds where spectators may witness the games In comfort. The schedule haa aot yet been arranged, but aa effort will be made to have all home gamea played while the bait team la away from home. It la the Intention of ute dub thia year to make every effort to have the Devebea Cup winter here after the end of the aeason, and alao retain tbe beau tifid Silver Cup. which Mr, R. A.
