THE STARTER'S FLAG,
Goose Tlill Jockey W:is Off in
Front and Won Four Hairs
at the Fair Grounds.
BIRDIE STONE AT LONG ODDS.
Meddlesome Landed the Third Tvaee
at a Fancy -I'l-ire Go Out's
1'oor Race Tom Col
lins in Form.
Jockey Dominic!: took the starter's Has
into his owu hands yesterday and won four
races, thus passim; the century mark in
winning mounts for the meeting by two
races. In almost every race Domlnick beat
the flag and broke up the excellent starts
Mr. llruen had framed up. It is a habit
lie has. The boy has won a great many
more races than any Jockey at the meeting
entirely on his ability to beat the lUg. He
Is not a bunch rider or a comer from be
hind. If he can get away in front he can
ride. And he knows it. Hence lie has been
getting running- starts, standing btarti
every kind of starts, but always, or almost
always, the bet of all the statts.
Three times out of four in both small and
large fields the Gooso Hill Sloan got the
best of the breaks, and the fourth time he
was away running and soon in front.
Domlnick has a fine record as a winning
jockey, and it was all made in the first
three jump". Many boys at the track can
outfinish him. as Dale did yesterday on
Thrive, but it seems none of them has
Starter Brucn's pitching; motions down so
fine. In baseball they say that tho secret
of base stealing is to watch the pitcher
closely and learn his motions, so that a cer
tain movement accurately foretell" the run
ner when ths ball is to be pitched later on.
Domlnick must have Mr. Bruen's wind-up
motions pretty fine. It remains to be seen
Jf ho will diagnose Starter Chinn's prelim
inary motions as accurately at Kinloch
The track was heavy as load yesterday
and winners were hard to choose. Any
man that could pick the first race was
entitled to 15 to 1 for his money. Armand,
on unbacked good thing, landed It.
Tcrralene got the money in the second,
and she deserved it. Unquestionably she
was best in the race. Frost gave her tho
best ride she has had in many days.
John S. Dratton and Hill Dixon got off
n good thing In the third when they put
Meddlrsomc over at S to 1 without knowing
IL Tom Gllmore was -a -natural favorite
here and finished a nice, decent last under
Dale. It is a good thing the census has
already been taken. If the enumerators
were looking for information around the
Fair Grounds yesterday' they .would never
have counted him. He could not be count
ed. Ho did not exist.
Tho bookmakers tried to mal;o the public
bet on Alien Turner In the fourth, but
the people would go to Thrive, albeit Mr.
Oahn's good colt had not been to the post
for thice months. Thrive ran a fino race,
for the Cahns can fit a horae for a first-timc-out
win. After a bit of a drive at
the sixteenth poje. Thrive disposed of Alice
Turner and came home on the bit an easy
If Tom Collins had been a "dead" bottle
of beer and had beeii tricked into life by
the sharp crack of a waiter's corkscrew,
ho could not have lathered and frothed
any more than he did when, he paraded
for the fifth race. When Toraasso lathers
like that he is always, or nearly always,
worth a bet. It shows that he is In good
form. He can no more run without his
lather than a barber can shav lacking tho
tame assistance. Kvcry one who saw the
long streams of white roam run down Col
lins off hind leg like the froth out of a
badly-lapped Aeer Keg put a bet on him.
Domlnick had just beaten the gate on
Meddlesome by a long way, and no one
looked for him to get away In front with
Collins. He did it though, by five lengths
running. The Geezer got away with him.
The rest were off by and by. The Geezer,
favored by the break, raced along with
Collins. Hi Kollor was beaten when the
flag fell. Had he not been so he would
have won. for he made up barrels of ground
and ran The Geezer to a nosu for the place.
Miss Theresa was a favorite at 3 to 2 for
the last event and never was in it. Somo
said that the exact kind of mud did not
suit Ulrdie Stone, who Is celebrated for her
fondness. for some particular kind of sloppy
going. Birdie won galloping all the way.
Corner gav Margarot F. one fearful hand
ling. It was terrible to witness. She might
have won. Miss Theresa did not liko the
going. In a close finish it 'appeared that
Dale got second money with The Thrush,
but tho judges said not. Under a bad ride
and a bad start. Empyreal did excellently
and should bear watching another time.
In the afternoon proceedings were en
livened b an Impromptu hair-pulling-match
between two young women In the
stand. It appeared that the females in
question quarreled over the proprietorship
of a male person who rejoices In the alllt
eratlvo appellation of "Turney, the Tout."
One of tho women claimed to have lcsal
rights to the sole and undivided affection
and loyalty of the precious character in
question and accused tho other female "f
being an alleged and unlicensed marauder
upon her preserves. Both women wcro at
once ejected from tho stand, to tho evident
relief and comfort of tho individual over
whom they found it necessary to quarrel
nut to tho disappointment of the crowd
which gathered to see the affray.

MAY SECURE WATERLOO CUP.

Fox Hunting Also on
If the comhinod plans of the St. IouIs
Coursing Club and the Kinloch Jockey Club
do not miscarry ndmlrurs of the Rroyhound
and thoroughbred horse, very proper and
natural alllnities, will ho uiven a unique
combination of both sports this fall. At a
meeting held Sunday, which was attended
by tile ofilcials of both clubs, it was de
cided to Rive a week's coursing meet about
October 15 in conjunction with tho races at
Kinloch Park. Whether this plan will be
carried out or not depends on the American
If this organization sanctions the running
of the Waterloo Cup, Fiate, Purse, Con
solation Stake nnd American Derby at Kin
loch Park St. Louisans can sit in the stand
and see the hounds chase the rabbit in the
Infield while the horses are circling tho
track in the races. They can speculate on
the dogs, too, just as they can on the
horses. Books will be made on the courses,
and It Is expected that the money-takers
will be kept busy.
Should the American Coursing Board
grant the request of tho St. I.ouls Coursing
Club, the greatest greyhounds In the coun
try will be shipped here to participate in
the events. The Waterloo Cup is to cour.'i
ing what the Derby is to horscracing.
Tho sport will he conducted on a larger
scale than ever before attempted in this
part of the country.
Speaking of tho prospects for a good
season of coursing Charles Benson, secre
tary of the St. IjuIs Coursing Club, saidi
,"If we secure the Waterloo meet we will
outdo San Francisco in a coursing way.
San Francisco has for a long time been
recognized ns tho coursing center of Amer
ica, but it will ha-o to take a back seat
now. We have secured the grounds some
thing that we have been looking for for
several years. If the Waterloo event is
secured it is the intention of tho club to
add $300. An entry fee of $25 will be
charged nnd we expect that at least fifty
dogs will be named. Witli fifty entries, tho
stake will be worth $1,730, quite a tidy sum.
With the Waterloo Cup come the Waterloo
Plate and the Consolation Stake and the
American Derby for Puppies. This will
make one solid week of coursing.
"1 received a 'very fnvorable reply from
the president of the board in answer to my
request for the Waterloo. I think that it
is about settled that we will secure the big
event. If successful we will seltct the last
week in October to decide the events."
The club Intends to spend $1,000 fitting up
the infield at Kinloch for coursing purposes.
The ground lias been ploughed and the har
rows are at work at prtent. Then It will
be rolled and when this is completed It will
make one of the best coursing parks in the
country. The inner rail will bo covered
with canvas all the way mound the track
and it will be painted black so that it will
be easily seen by the jacks. A big space
will be fenced oif at the northern end of
the inclosure and this -will he used as a
home for tho hares: ' Tho bottom of tha
fence will be lined with small holes to en
able the jacks to ewape.
"We will secure the first bunch of jacks
in a few weeks, and they will be allowed to
run around In tho inclosure so that thev
may become familiar with the location of
the escapes. I don't expect to see more than,
one of tho long-eared creatures killed in a
day's coursing. At the southern end will bo
the chuto. It will be patterned after the
ono wo had at Pastime Grounds last year.
"Should we fail to secure the Waterloo
meet we will rompienCQ tho season the first
Sunday until after tho racing season ends.
Then wo will give meets three days a week.
In these meets we will add $75 and $100 to
the all-aged stakes, and $50 and $75 to tho
"The foxhounds of the Woodbine Hunt
Club will also be located at Kinloch this fall
and will hunt three days In eacli week.
What with racing every day, coursing r
Stnylays. and fox hunts three days eat.i
week, Kinloch will be quite a place of pas
time tne coming winter.

will make a nice mate for Mr. Chinn.
Judgo JIurphy said yesterday that Mr.
Fred Cook's horse, St. Wood, pulled up
very lamo after his raco on Saturday and

know why he was not nerved a week soon

must be recognized as part ot the game,
before and after taking.
By the way, Jlr. Cook's luck did not
break for him yesterday as it did in that
Odnor-Isobel raco on Saturday. Then Mr.
Cook held Odnor out in his book and laid
high price on Isohel. Through Isobel being
Interfered with Odnor wop by a scant

Chicago, 111., Aug. 27. Jack 3Ienefee to
day twirled for Chicago against St. Iuis,
and, though he was hit harder than was his
opponent, ho won his game on Ids extreme
The score was 2 to 1, and, although the
St. Louis men tried furiously In each inn
ing to bat the game to a tie and then win,
they were stalled and held in the rut where
they had fallen. However, in tho ninth
things took on such a yellow hue that the
case of hay fever which Tom I.ofttis has
just ridded himself of was turned to ono
of ague. One run meant enough to tie tho
score, and Powell was getting altogether
too good to risk many extra innings against
him. Only one was out and McGann had
Ilobinson was at the plate, and he is
known to bo a "pinch" hitter with a rec
ord. But McGann did not wait for his
teammate to make on attempt. Ho started
from second, nnd Charley Dexter caught
him. When Robinson singled there was
more trouble. Then Donlin was sent In to
hat for Powell, but ha was sent tn the bus
when ho knocked a grounder to Childs.
Chicago made hoth her runs In the sec
ond inning on threa singles. These wero
secured by Dexter. Bradley and McCor
mick. Dexter scored on the shortstop's hit,
and when Menefee lifted a long liy to Don
ovan, Bradley romped home.
On three s-lngles in the fifth the visitors
got their only mark In the run column, but
It was only because of some excellent work
by Mcnofeo that thoy did not make more.
Both McGann and Itobliison made hits.
Thero was too much promise and Powell
struck out. McOrnw then made his third
hit of tho jrame, which landed on the foul
line Just back of .first base. McGann t-corcd
on this, 8iid Iiurkett closed the act by
eo!nt- out, on a, foul fjy tc 3tcCartiy.

BR00M-C0RN TRUST'S DILEMMA
Musi I'.uy Up Present Illinois Crop
or Let (.Jo of Its Holdings.
Oakland, 111.. Aug. 27. There is great ex
citement to-day all over the broom-corn
belt of Illinois, which extends as far south
as Wayne County and east to Edgar, west
to Douglas nnd north to Champaign coun
ty, over a ueli-authenticated rumor that
the broom-corn trust is about to collapse.
The present crop of brush is now being
harvested, and when it Is ready it will be
thrown on the market, as many of tho
growers of the corn are renters and huvo
to let go of their crops lu order to pay
To let this corn be sold at its normal
price, $70 to JS0 a ton, is what the broom
corn trust cannot afford to do, as the trust
has on hand in the warehouses at Areola,
Paris, Mattooit, Charleston und Oakland
10,000 tons of brush, on which for a year
It lias been paying insurance nnd storage.
In the past day or two, two crops of corn
have been purchased by the trust at $100 a
toil. These two crops were small ones: one
of six tons, the other eight tons. The trust
could well afford tu buy them to establish
a fictitious price, ho that the farmers might
be fooled and Induced to hold thlr brush.
In the meantime, it Is a notorious fact
that tho trust is unloading Its holdlnss as
fast as it can Ilnd 11 market. Eighteen cars
of brush were shipped Saturday from
Charleston and three from here.

There are numerous reports of boll weevil
and from Hunt, Waller and Washington
counties In particular the reports were very
bad. Other insects are also reportwl as do
ing damage in cotton fields In different sec
tions of the State, and tho correspondent
at Denton County gives a very gloomy ac
count of the ravages of the boll worm. Tha
grasshoppers appear to have left North
Texas with the wheat crop, as n6 further
damage by them Is reported. Most of the
counties reporting good condition are small
producers and do not offset the damage re
ported from the counties which produce a
large amount of cotton.
