The distance was at a mile and an eighth

some who had seen tb- Fixer gelding baik
to in a shorter rce Wedn-sday. A lonG
delay at the poet had or.'bably llred Tlck
ful on tnat occasion, now ever, as yru?r;y
ho showed no signs of wearying over the
route. Walsh sent him to the front from
the v-cry start and dahed aro-nJ the rtrt
turn a3 If he was riding In a four-furlong
sprint. . . ,
Bv the time the Quarter pole was reached
lie had opened up a agp of eight lengths be
tween his mount and the Held, and kept
hustling Tlckful alone as though every post
wns a winning one. At every furlong the
Flier colors were a lit'le further in the
lead, and the field was trailing out desper
ately l"hmd In an effort to keep up. 1

delight arose from the bettors who had

This cbulllltlon died nwav at once, how

great shape and was running well ri't h

Terra Incosntta staggered In second, the ,

Off absolutely last, the Bratton entry lost

"A mlgho cheer went up when the four

"I know 1 was in sight of the wire when
that long lank gray came In and Ben
Franklin was behinl him! There was a
thunderous hnwls or joy and rage. The
mob broke down the fences and rushed
into the ring, and It looked to me like
everybody was shaking his fist In his neigh
bor's face and the neighbor was returning
the con.pliment. There were several rough-and-tumble
fights. The friends of the favor
ite would not believe Btn Franklin had
been beaten fairly Tney charged that the
boy that rode him nail permitted a horJ
doctor to enter t!i stable the night be
fore and dose him. The charger? wore In
vestigated, but the Judges decided the gray
had fairly won. and the men betting on
him were entitled to their money.
"The resu't about ruined the owners of
Ben Franklin. Emory became deranged,
and for a long while he was under treat
ment, but I think he finally recovered. Ben
F.-anklin never ran any more races, but he
sired some line animals since. My father
had two of hi" colts, ard they did credit to
their illustrious ancestor.
"I am not much given to sport these
days', hut if ever onother race like that Is
pulled off within reaching distance. I'm
afraid I'd be there."
