Y.s'erday closed the fail .meeting
e! the Jockey Club, one of (bo bttt
jriven at thii reason of the year at
Memphis. The sport was excellent
every day, the field in ncar'y every
race being large, tha fl ora eveu
ly matched and tbo finish in many In
stances slose and exciting. Tte bet
ting was lively, and if any jockeying
wns dene the crowd had no proof of
it. The time was not suspicions. The
f armors were all bosy harYestlDg and
(he merchanta had little time to spare
ior recreation. The weather was
cloudy and cold the two first days,
Tt rcoata being comfortable every day
of tt'e meeting. The a'tendance was
not large, but in view of all tiie cir
cnujstancea tho club Lai every
weon to be satisfied with
tVe gte receipts. Oa opeciui?
4,y and on yesterday and Fiiday qnile
nnmbsr of ladies aUenduI. It is
plainly apparont that the racing spirit
ha taken a firm hold hero, and it
o hing el-e has been accomplished
by the fall meeting a suie foundation
baa bi en laid tor a glorious meeting in
the spring. The ample btuble roam
olT'ifd by the club has all boe
taken by the owners of the moist
noted bUbles in the country, Ihe ad
vantages this point poteessfs tot win
tering horses having forced them
eeives open the attention of turfmen.
The treek is one of the best in the
UiJted States, and no mutter bow wet
the weather it never becomes to a mud
dy f r training an important point
In consequence horses stock will be
wintered here this eoacon tLau during
any three preceding winters put to
gether, and they will all outer in the
spring. Yesterday's programme was
an exceptionally inviting one, tho at
tendance was slightly increased, and
all, exaept those who failed t win,
went away delighted with the meet
ing. FIRST BACB.
The first race ef the dey was a dash
of eevea furlongs, the starters bring
Tony ra'tor.fvs and, Thil Lewis, Le
roy, Prohns, Hob 8 trim and Ligao.
The bo kmakew, who knew what they
were doli g, made LMand the favorite,
offering much greater odds on ell ef
the othora. The erowcl got a "tip" on
l'hil Lwis early in the earn", and
the odds of 6 to 1 at first oured wete
soon sat down t ) 2 to 1, the figures on
I.lsUind being increased to 8 to 1.
Bob Swim wna also heavily backed
to win, good nd ils being offered. A
MKteting start was made, Lislund
gettina the best of it ; the others strung
at half a length apart. At the first
quarter LMand's jjikey reiued ber
in, tad bob Swim went to the front,
Tony Ptstor also pBing thu game
little filly. At the turn they were all
pretty well bunched, Bib Hwim still
leading, but his laurels were snatched
from Mm in the fluid spurt down the
stretch by Llaland, who won by a
length; Pali Lewis sicond, and Lig-40
a good thud.
There were but two entries iu tha
aenOud race, distance six furlongs.
They were Uapt. 8in Brown's gima
little flliy Kiitie A. and Ketchuin's
faster. Katie A. wns regarded as a
are winner, bat as it ai (he la it day
the ciowd wa relaotant to put auy
money on either. Odds were given
on Fuster and asked on the black.
For the first qnarier Katie A. had the
lead, then Fa-ter taok it for a quarter,
and es tbey reaohed the turn they
w4e neck and neck. As soon as they
wept into the homestretch, however,
Kalis' A. teok the lead a-.d won in a
jra lop, Faster being a couple of
lengths behind at tLe string.
The third was one of the prettiest
races of the week and the finest one of
the closest and most exciting. The
distanee wis six furlongs, and me f ror
atarters were Rse,Tsura, Farsgnn and
Florlmore Florimore was a decided
favorite from the first, and Rose car
ried a good load of bullion when tbs
drum tapped. The favorite got away
in the lead, but was ridden with a
tight rein to the turn, Trura takln
first place and Rose bringing up the
rear. As they showed around the
tarn at the bead of the stretch the
quartette were running evenly, head
and head. Florimore had the inside
and ball way down forged a ooaule of
lengths to the fore. Wiien she seemed
about to win, Rose made a tuperb ef
fort and enptured the pr as by a head.
Taara third, Paragon well up.
Two ot the flild of eleven in the
fourth race were aciatrhsd, leaving
Fina.ity, 1'orter Ashe, 11 igL flyer, His
Hymyar. Hattie Carlisle, Barbara,
Little Minnie, Gov. Bate and Mona tu
irtarr. Mona was tne favorite, odds of
from J5 to $"0 bing rfl.rel ca all tha
other.. Little Minnie sola low down
in the pool", and on the books the
ares were $! to 1. She was as filikv
as a colt, and iusiet'd upon having the
beat ol the start, taking toe inside and
leading the bunch all the way round
Something seemed to be the matter
with the favorite. Bhe got away badly,
and on the backstrutcti ran a doten
lengths behinl the leader, throwing
tier 1 easy at me liail mile post. Jut
tie Minnie watea her mttttl, and won
handily by a length; Flualitv second
and Barbara a good third, the others
The beau'y and enjoyment of the
fifta race waa altogether in the fineat
which waa so close that it required
the Jndges to decide. The distance
was seven furlong, and Little Joe,
-Clani Branai n. Duke of. iJonnaiigbt
Jim Ny and Monarch teed the mark
-when tbe bell rung. They got away
-well together, but in the bacVatretah

Ladies who suffer from gen
eral or any special weakness not
only grow sallow in complexion
but have dark circles under the
eyes and premature crows-feet
that detract so much from their
appearance. The use of
CROWN'S IRON BITTERS
will strengthen, will cleanse and
enrich the blood, vitalize the
system, cure biliousness, remove
pains and suffering from infirmi
ties peculiar to the sex, give fresh
vigor to the mental and physical
condition, dispel the sallow hue
of the countenance and give fresh
clear rosy appearance to the skin.
The brunette will be a brunette
still, the blonde will remain a
blonde, but the use of Brown's
Iron Bitters as a purifier and
strengthening medicine will give
health to both and enjoyment of
life's duties and pleasures. The
teeth v "ll not be injured or dis
colored by Brown's Iron Bitters;
this is t ue of no other iron prepa
ration. By its faithful use head
aches are cured, constipation and
diseases of the liver and kidneys
are relieved, pains in the back and
sides are dispelled, and nervous
prostration resulting from the suf
fering caused by diseases of these
organs and the stomach are re
moved. It is the most complete
medicine made for such troubles.
Medical and chemical skill have
been employed to discover the
best medicinal ingredients and to

manner to produce a remedy
which can be used by the public
