HAIVriMOBK, Md.. Oct. 30. Whsn
Klyslan won tho steeplechase from
three-year-olds nt tho Laurel track
yesterday, he wiped out the last cent
which was contingent on his sals to
Mrs. Timothy D. Donohue. For b It
known that In addition to the sum of
money that fair devotee of the turf
laid down for the big Imported son of
MacDonald II, sho agreed to pay out
tho value ot tho llrst purse or stake
that ho might win.
On this clause In the contract of
sale bangs a tale, tho sidelights of

you to save, a dollar (or many)

Mrs. Timothy J Donohuo's husband
Tim is a great trainer of "leppers" us
tho sons of tho "ould sod" call tho
steeplcchaso horses. Tim dovclopud
Tho Brook, tho best cross-country
horse of the season, and sold him early
In tho year for 14,000. Ho then cast
his cyo around for a likely three-year-old
that could win tho Harbor Hill,
tho stake event which has been,
thanks to the liberality of Clarence
Mackcy, so eagerly nought by owners.
This event has been regarded by turf
rr.sn as "tho Derby over tho sticks,"
for It has been restricted to three-year-olds
and is tho most valuable
event of Its kind In the United States.
Tim's selection was isiysian ana lurs.

usiy noted cash in nana ana an
r in tho form of a promissory
note to pay tho valuo of tho llrst raco
ho won. So far so good.
Glyslan mado good In his trials
over tho Jumps. Ho proved to bo u
sura Jumper and hud so jnu.'h speed
that owners began to say to Tim.
"You havo tho Harbor Hill stakes
In your grasp." Ibis was music to
Tim's oars, but a discordant note was
struck later when, because, of tho

Just when things looked like tbun
dcrcluuds for Tim's chances of win-
nine Kll'slan OUt tho managers Of thj
had to glvo It up? soliloquized Tim.
What was ho to do?
A whiff at tho good old plpo gave
him a happy Inspiration. Why, start
Klyslan In u raco a few days ahead
of tho stake, win tho purse, pay over
tho money and tho colt could race for
tho stnko later, frco of hobbles In the
form of a mortgago on his bide; so
Tim went to work. Thero was a race
on at Laurel that filled tho bill, but
it was so close to tho stnko fcaturo nt
Plmllco that It might Injure Klyslan's
chanco In tho big event If the raco
was allowed to stand on tho original
programme. By tho judicious uso of
a llttlo blarney to tho secretary, tell
ing how much better tho raco would
fill yesterday thun to-morrow, he had
tho raco moved up two days on the

of tho season.
But tho happy part of it to Tim Is
that the winnings of tho stake will
now go to Mrs. Tim for Liberty bonds
