but we shall have to ask you
to put up with it for an

New York, feept. 25. Turfmen are full
of the unlnoked for outcome of the first
racentGracsend yesterday. It wasa fhe
furlongscicntand twehc horses started.
Among the entries was Lucky Baldwin's
Satiable, a colt that was cast off by the
Gideon stable. The odds against Salvable
were 15 to 1. Gradually this was pounded
down until at the finish of beltiug Sahable
was a prohibitive fa oritc.
When the field got away Salvable rushed
to Ibe front and no other colt In the race
got within striking distance "of him.
It was, of ciH-6e, apparent that some
one with a lot of money was behind Satia
ble. It was generall believed, of course,"
that it was lialdnln, and now there is no
doubt about It. Two or three bookmakers
who took big commissions n hen the bitting

most swamped and a number of othirs were
It is not, of course, known how much
money Baldwin realized out of the race,
but It Is billeted that his winnings were
greater than tiave been made by anj man

nings of Riley Craunnn on Henry of Na
varre far In the shade. Grannau won ?G3,-

Turfmen at Cincinnati are disturbed over
an occurrence at the Oakley track. There
has been bad blood between the famous book
maker, Horace Argo, and thecqually famous
ownerof horses and manager of race tracks,'
Ed Corrigan. The trouble between the two
men had its beginning at the time of tberaur
der of Jim Brown,- the noted Texas horse
man, and three policemen at the Garfield
Iark traik, Chicago.-yearsago
It found new fuel during the recent war
between Hawthorne and Roby. At that time
Argo ran a poolroom in Chicago, and It is
said that through Corrigau'sdickcring with
the Civic Federation of that city the place
was ilosed up Argo submitted without
much ado, but quietly told his friends he
would even things withCorrlgnn Theother
day Corrigan entered Leo Lake In a selling
racefor $700. AflertheraccwasoverArgo
euterf d the Judges' stand, tendered the $700
and the amount of the purscwon by thefirst
horse, $1,000 in ail, aw1 ilalmed Lake, and
after a wrangle with some of Corrigan's
friends got mm.
Corrigan paid f 6,500 for the hort-e, and
considered him worth much more than that,
He turned livid Avltb. rage when lie heard of
Argo's aitiou. Both men are noted for the
way they can hate and for their courage,
and a tragedy is looked for at any moment.
There has been as much "evolution" In
the improvement of trotting appliances as
in the horse himself. In 1829 theflrstsulky
was built and weighed 1G0 pounds, and was
the frailest structure of the kind ever put
together, writes L. C Underhill. The"blke"
of 1805 weighs as little as twenty pounds
One I Love is the fifth filly to win the
Great Eastern handicap, which was inaug
urated in 1883. Dew Drop won it In 1885,
carrying 110 pounds, and ran the three
fourths of a mile In 1:10 :!-4. In 1800 the
distance was reduced to the Futurity course
and the race was won by Sallic McClelland
In 1:14 2-5, carrying 124 pounds. In 1802
Lady Violet carried 125 pounds and won in
1:10 l-O, and in 1801 Gutta Perclia, with
110 pounds, won in 1:10.

the worst year In the history of the trot

out even on the season thus far.
"The determination of David Gideon to
sell oft all of his good horses. Requital
among thcrest,and"keeponl) ascllingplater
or two with whicb.'xi amuse" himsiir, coupled
with his staement that "no one but a mill
ionaire can afford to own a blg stable
and run his horses honestly under the new
conditions," carries with it a great deal
of meaning. Gideon is nota poor man, but
be is not a millionaire, and his words ver
ify what has often been said since 'the al
leged reformation of the turf has set In,
that horse racing is to be monopolized by
the rich as has been about everything else
out nt which a dollar may be made, and
that the owner -of moderate means is to be
put out of business.
Early In the spring when It was an
nounced that .August Belmont and other
wealthy turfmen badsecured control of

Capt. Lea to Hue his men up daily from this

Although It is -early to say anything of tht
makeup of the team, as is usual a line and
backs have been picked out to start the
game. The following men have been
selected: Center, Gayley; guards, Rhodes

The substitution of Gayley for Riggs at

bad much more experience in the position,
and Riggs will probably play a better game
at guard than he did at center.

Irwin wants the Quakers and the Orioles
to combine and make a tour of the South
alter tbe championship season Is over. It
Is bis veheme to strike Dallas about the
time of the Texas State fair and the
Corbett and Fi'tzslmmnns fight. v
The Quakers are wondering what Ortb
will do with the Orioles to-day.
The Spldersare consoling themselves that
If they don't win the pennant they will
surely win tbe Temple cup. The Spidi ra
alwajs see something ahead to be cheerful
It is refreshing to note that Manager
Hanlon vigorously denies that he has ecr
intimated that his Orioles were not being
fairly treated by the other League clubs
In tbe pennant race. All of tbe League
members, be assures tbe world, are honor
Admirers of Bjrkett presented him with
a handsome badge at Cleveland the other
day for leading the LeagueIn batting.
It Is likely that the first three games of
the Temple cup scries wjll be plajed in
Cleveland on -Wednesday, Thursilay and
Saturday, October 9, 1 0 and 12, and the sec
ond three games in Baltimore on tbe same
dajsof the following week. It is a mat
ter of doubt as to where the odd game will
be played. If one should be necessary, but
the Clevelanders seem favorable to Pitts
Cleveland papers are intimating tbat
the proposition lias been made that the
receipts from the Temple cup games be
evenly divided. They fav the 8piders will
stand no such foolishness as this, That
tbe spoils must bo sixty percent, to the
winners and forty per cent, to the losers,
all of which indicates that tbe Tebeau
men imagine tbey have a cinch on the
sixty per cent. end.

AGE OF WOOD.
Amorlcnns In Old Days Knew Xot tbo
TTxe of Iron.
In the United States tbe age of iron fol
lowed upon an age ot wood.
Colonial times saw iron works estab
lished in Eastern Massachusetts, but not
only was the product expensive, but freight
rates were ery high, except where water
transportation could be had.
As a result, every farmer was a good
deal of a carpenter aa well. He fastened
bis shaved shingles upon his roof witb
wooden pegs, and cases hae been known
of such roofs lasting 100 years. The frame
of his bam was pegged together, and this
custom held, even after iron grew cheap.
The nails used on the wide board siding
were made by the local blacksmith oy hand,
but negB at first answered even this use.
The farmer's sledge and the boy's sled
contained not a particle of iron. Franv
and runners were of wood, put together
with half Inch pegs- The cross beams cut
away from beneath, in a rude, flat arch.
Tested directly upon the runners, a very
strong construction, Even the shoes were
of harder wood, pegged on. The pegs wcra
whittled out with an ax, and a good work
man could sharpen pegs on a stone without
dulling the ax. One waggibh fellow put
to this test, and, fiulshln; It triumphantly,
dashed bis av against the stone, saying:
"In my town we used to stick the ax in
the chopping block when we got through."
The thurablatch, by which the farmer
opened his door, was wooden, so was the
peg-or hook on which be hung his hat and
gun, and the pall In which he brought
water to wash his hands, and tbe piggtn,
which held the soft soap he use.! lnthcopera
tlon wooden, without tbe suspicion: of a
nail or screw. So was granny's arm-chair,
and every bedstead In the house turned
posts from the mill, worked up at home,
with mortise and tenoned beams of solid
birch, four inches square. Iron entered but
slightly into the making of ills wagon, and
aB for carriages and road wagons, they are
of comparatively recent development.
Nowadays, if a cariicnter drops a nail, ho
nev er stops to pick it up. The time wasted
would be worth more than the nail. It was
different w hen they were all made by hand.
