The sport furnished at the Island track
yesterday was of a very tame discriptton.
TheallSidaiice wasonly fair, there wercbut
nothing out of the ordinary; Three favorite-,
two second chokes, and an outsider
lauded the money.
The only finish that was worth anything
was that In the firth eent. .lo Jap,
Marguerite 11, EllMvcirtlinndHelciiH. bad a
rattling tilt clear through the "stretch.
They all of them looked to bo -winners
twenty yards from the wire and passed
the Ft. mil heads apart.
No less than fourteen faced the kkirlrr
in the opening event and they wrro a rank
collection of dogs. Obcrlln looked on
luper to be the best of them njid lie was
made the favorite, ilo-ing ntevi-n money.
For a wonder the talent landed on the
right one. Tat'cy Mcllermntt had the
mount ami he brought Iiiiu home a length
to the good of Tannic Heerly, a IB to 1
WON' HIS SECOND KACE.
Imp. Samaritan scored another win in the
second race. It wnsntfivefurlongsaud ho
was nude a 1 to :i chance. To a good start
Jessie Tnral showed Ln, trout but could not
keep up with the f Is ing favorite and had to
lie content witli second money.
Wellman and Perfidy luriiislitd a good
betting contest In the third race. The
former oicncd at threi-s au-1 was backed
down to ecn money. Perfidy opcntsl
favorite at fl lo 5, but quickly w ent to 13
to 5. The good money soon came In, how
ever, and she was backed to 7 to 5, at
which price she closed. Oleasoncarrledhcr
out in front at I lie start and leading all the
way won handily from Miss Elizabeth,
with Wellman third.
BULKED ALL THE WAY.
Gallatin had the call la the fourth and ap
peared to outclass his field to such an
ixtent thathc was made a five to one shot.
He had a bad case of the sulks and refused
to run an inch ot the way. Harry M. took
up the running soon after tin-start and won
in a gallop. Gallatin took It into his head
to run when it was too late and finishes:!
The handieapper6 got down on Ellsworth
In the next as if the race was as good
as over, and he went to the post a pro
hibitive favorite at seven to ten. He vvns
out In the lead by a good length as Tar as
the paddock gate, where lie nult badly
and was beaten out by Jo Jap and Margue
George Mansfield landed another race
nllh Foundling, who -won the closing
event from Grand Prix. The betting was
divided .between thesg two, first olio and
Hicn tiie other leing made favorite. To
a poor start Foundling got away In the
lead with Grand Prix in close attendance.
They raced lapped the entire distance.
Foundling lasted long enough to win by a

aiiE STRANGE MEETING.
The meeting of the two women whore
pictures are hero given shows that every
day life fundi tics experiences as thrilling
asthose that come to us only in our wildest
dreams. And the fact that such meetings
occur every day iInu a moral that every
woman in the land ihould take to heart.
Here was a woman In the prime or life,
pursued by that sentinel which Eccks Its
victim among her lex alone.
From a living picture she liccame. In less
than a year, a wreck of human wreUhi-d-ness.
From despondency to despair seemed
but Uic remaining sup, the last step.
HER LAST FAREWELL.
Overcome by the presentiment that pre
cedes n lingering death, she-asked to be
removed to her old home In the West, nnd
i-poke what to all seemed to Is? her last
farewell. In the very paier that chronicled
her departure the doomed Invalid found
letters written by Mrs. Belle Dement, of
Iroquois, III., Mrs. Minnie Smith, or Lowell,
Oregon, and others. Some of these letters
aro printed blow. They told how cures
had liecu found for cases like her own
shattered health that had almost sapped
life away. With no more hope than that
which prompts the drowning man to catch
at a straw for she firmly believed herself
Incurable. Just aR tens of thousands of
women believe themselves incurable she
followed the advice coutalued in these
letters.. The result Is liest told in the
woman'R own words. "In less than five
months," she writes, "I returned to my
friends In the East, as well and strong in
body nnd mind and as Iiappy and tree tiom
pain as any woman iu the world. I had
gained nearly thirty pounds In weight and
was so changed Iu face and form that when
one of my dearest friends met me In broad
daylight she almost fainted. Tor
SHE BELIEVED ME DEAD.'"
She adds. "I owe my whole life aud
Happiness to Doctor Pierce's Favorite Pre
scription, which cured me after doctors,
travel, baths, massage, electricity, had
failed to even benefit!"
This woman's case, remarkable as it may
seem. It Is not an exceptional one. Thou
sands and thousands of Just such cures
have been made In every State by this same
special remedy for women's peculiar dis
orders aud diseases. This world-famed
remedy Is not recommended ns a "cure
