Lad's great victory over the best four-
yoar-old thoroughbred in America, Mc-
j 3ce, at Harlom on "Wednesday last
' marks tho feature ovent of the week.
' ' Actually giving1 away six pounds of
j 'weight, according to the scale, Engllah
j Lad, tho popular champion of Western
; i ' three-year-olds, defeated McGee, the
, ' ' I best four-year-old In tho West, In one
( ' of tho most inspiring contents of the
season. The victory was only by a
i .pose, but It wrought up the crowd to
,! higher pitch than has any race this
j 1 . , Tho contest itself was a grand cxhl-
( bltion. But more inspiring and more
i nerve-tingling than tho race was the
acceptance of It by the Immense aggre-
I i gntion of human beings packed in the
j stand and about it. In not a single

II just now Hushed with five victories and
in most magnificent condition, English
Lad was not expected to win.
But when the eighth polo was neared
' and It was seen his chances were more
1 than even with the great McGee, tho
I spectators went wild. Applause was
j tho ordor, and It was forthcoming,
j Their yellings, ecreaming, clapping
and Jumplng-Jack movements were suf-
Hclent to bring the hearts of the more
, callous spectators to their throats.
I For the race McGee was a -1 to 5 fa-
vorite, with English Lad held at 14 to 5,
' and Witful at 4 to 1. Getting away to
a good start, Souffrlere set the early
j j pace under sufferance. Then McGee
moved up In command. All the while
t j English Lad lay back in third position.
( Turning into the stretch, NIcol began
to call on the popular Idol. His re
i sponse was that of a game ,true-heart-i
ed racer, and ho soon was on almost
I ; , equal terms with the favorite. Then
' began a duel that lasted from the
eighth pole to tho finish, with English
Lad slowly getting In front of the En
I gllsh horse.
English. Lad's Game Finish.
1 1 At the wire the colt had the advan
,j j tage by a nose, though all the last slx
, ( teenth or more he had McGee beaten.
At that, both horses wero ridden out in
I ,a hard drive. Witful, noted as a
1 stretch runner, simply could not get up
l to the two, finishing an easy third. The
. last mile of the journey was made In
just a fraction over 1:30, which shows

') , Pittsburg's millionaire turfman, Capt.
i 'S. S. Brown, owner of tho crack three-
1 year-old Broomstick, winner of the
I Brighton handicap, has been spending a
i few days here. He goes out to the
i , track occasionally to see his ponies run.
j Ir. Brown believes he has the undis
puted champion of the year in Broom
M stick, and during a conversation with
;i' several friends declared his willingness
; to match the crack colt with the West's
l champion, English Lnd.
!;i The Pittsburg owner saw English
;j Lad race Wednesday, and was im-
. pressed by the showing of the Cook
"I think," declared Mr. Brown to a
number of his friends, "that Broom
stick can beat the Cook horse over a
mile-and-a-quarter Journey any time
r that they care to try conclusions with
us In the East. If English Lad goes
' East for the Saratoga meeting he will
have every opportunity to hook up with
: I Broomstick at the Spa, as I will enter
. j him freely, and I'm not afraid to race
' I any man's horse."

I ; tween McChesney, for two years the
Idol of the Western racing public, and
' v English Lad, the present marvel of the
Western turf, has been revived, and

great speed marvels meeting in the

"THEY SAY" IS A LIAR.
Loose talking breaks up more firms
and more homes than any other one
thing I know. The father of lies lives
In hell, but he spends a good' deal of his
time In Chicago. You'll find ,hlm on the
Board of Trade when the market's wob
bling, saying that the Russians nre Just
about to eat up Turkey, and that It'll
take 20,000.000 bushela of our wheat to
make the bread for the sandwich; and
ddwn In the street, ns-klng if you knew
that the cashier of the 'Teenth National
was leading a double life as a tMngle man
In the suburbs and a singular life for a
married man In the city: and out on
Prairie avenue, whispering that It's too
bad Mabel smokes Turkish cigarettes,
for 9he's got such pretty curly hair, and
how sad It is that Daiy nnd Dan are
going to separate, "but they do say that
he shl sh!. hush; here she comes." Yet
when you como to waeh your pan of
dirt, and the lies have all been carried
off Into tho flume, and you've got to the
few particles of solid, elghten-carat
truth left, you'll find if8 the sultan
who's emoklng Turk3h cigarettes, and
that Mabel Is trying cubebs for her ca
tarrh; and that the cashier of the
'Teenth National belongs to a whist
club In the suburbs and Is the superin
tendent of a Sunday school in the cltv;
and that Dan. has put Daisy up to visit
ing her mother to ward, oft n threatened
mvop down from the old laxly; and that
tho Czar hasn't done a blame thing ex
cept to become tho father of another
baby girl. There are two ways of treat

they're booth good ways, One Is not to

YACHTING A POPULAR, SPORT.
While there Is a popular belief in
many quarters that yachting Is a sport
for Kings and millionaires, this is an
erroneous Impression, aB almost any
one, no matter how small his Income
may be, can Indulge in this fascinating
pastime to his heart's content at com
paratively small expense. It is truo
that steam yachts like the Valiant cost
something like $1,000,000 to build, and
that tho syndicate that owned the Re
liance probably spent close to half a
million dollars beforo the Shamrock
III. waB beaten, but boats of this typo
are the exception and not the rule.
Nowadays, when a man can buy a
good, serviceable sailing dory lor nom
J35 to $50, or purchase a small power
launch for from 5175 to 5250, there is no
reason for him to envy a Vanderbllt or
an Iselln; for, if he really loves the wa
ter, he can get as much sport out of
the game and have far more fun than
his wealthier neighbors ever thought
In the old days our yachtsmen went
In for huge schooners with big crews,
and, as the New York Yacht club did
small boats by refusing to enroll yachts
its best to discourage the building of
under a certain tonnage, Imitating the
Royal Yacht squadron, In England, the
sport was confined to comparatively
few people. About thirty years ago,
however, other clubs sprang up in re
sponse to a demand by people of lim
ited means who were fond of the wa
ter and of sailing their own boats, but
who could not afford the expense of
running "a sailors' boarding-house,"
The result was the building of hun
dreds of cats, and sloops of the sand
bag type, and while they furnished
plenty of sport for a time they were
dangerous boats to sail, at the best,
except in the hands of experts, and re
quired too big a crew to handle them.
They, in turn, gave place to cabin
cats and single stickers, fitted with in
side and outside ballast, or boats with
sulllclent beam to keep them right side
up In almost any kind of weather. This
type held sway until early In the '00s,
when the first restricted or one-design
class, as it afterward became, Bprang
Into existence with a little fleet of 21
foot keel boats ordered from Herres
hoff & Gardner by sonic members of
the Scawanhaka-Corlnthlan Yacht
club of Oyster Bay.
The boats only cost about $1200 or
J1400 each to build and, strange to re
late, It was not the cheapness of these
little racers that appealed to the organ
izers of this class so much a3 the fact
that they were not built to conform to
any particular rule and thus were not
subject to any vexatious measurement
rules so long as they confined their
racing t6 boats of their own class. For
the one-design class boats were not
afTected by any of the many changes
In the measurement rules, and their
owners knew that they could race to
gether for years without any ranger
of being outbuilt, and that If they
wished to dispose of them they could
command a much higher price than
the ordinary small boat when their
racing days were over. Another at
tractive feature of the one-design class
Is that theoretically, the boats should
have the same speed, and while they
don't quite work out that way ,in prac
tice, handling plays a more Important
part here than In any other class of
boats. Duncun Ewlng in the Illustrat
