. TliolatoJohn Harper commenced rac
ing in early lifo, and (or sport rather than
(or the luunoy Hint was in it. And, in or
order to umlointaud llio trainiuR of a homo
ho spent ono year as a sort ot an appren
tice under Capt. 8id Uurtridite, of Pcott
County, who was one of the pioneer turf
tneu of Kentucky. "Uncle John." as Mr.
Harper was usually called hy his ncih
bom, never married, nor did his brolltern,
Jacob and Adam, nor his sinter, Ming
Ht-tuy. (All murdered Adam by llio
Jayhawkors during the war, and Jake anil
Mis Polity aomo tiuin afterward by parties
unkuown to this dato.) The three broth
ers and sifter lived together on the homo
stead, holding the rirotierty in common.
Adam was tho farmer, Juke the financier,
Miss Ilctsy tho liounckeepur, nud John,
the raco borne luau.ier. They wero u
plain people, honest and cloxo wcalthy
for that country and tho times without
ostentation of any kind; kind nnd neili
liorly, and overflowing with plain, honest
Tho Niinturu farm is situnted in tho
liilust jiortion of Woodford County, in
the heart of tho blue-crass region, which
was at ono time rvk'iirilcl u tl.o exclimvo
thoroughbred nursvry for the whole coun
try. Many of his tioik'bliors were liirfmen
the liiilnnln, lllnckburiM, Fords nnd
Alexanders. Mr. Harper was himself a
remaikably rikkI trainer, verv careful with
Ins homes, and 1 don't think that he ever
bad a balky or a bad starter. His bones
weto ircucrally in ifoml cmidition and
w hen they went to tho hwi every ono h it
coiilidciit they would win if it were pos
sible. Ho never hnrked his ImrM.
fur lame amounts rarelv if ever more
thani.'j. Mr. llarHT owned iiiiinv jt-mkI
buntcs in his day. Tho lint of tliein of
w l.ii h I have an v recollection n llarptr'a

the originator of that system of pooling.
Mr. IIarr was a cIono man, iiu.l, like a
g hkI many bolora hint nu I in.niy after
bim, be never started with tho U-nt blood,
nor until tho latter p.irto(liii lif.' ever
p.itronisi-d a liili priced stnlliott, but bn-d
to his own stock. (I'.y the by, this is n
grout error generally amniig breeders. No
one can make a mistake in breeding to an
lnioried horse, as all the sliced conn s
from them). I ht aid lien, lluford r.iv
that lin almost forced I'ncle John to
bned Nunlura and Funny Holloii to
Ix-amiiigtoii; that if it bad not been
for bun, itnlord, nntnra and l iiiiiiv
Holtoii would never bnve liad anything
but K.ndonMT col is. !ut let that go. I
know this, and I think a good uisny w ill
Atrree with in", that tho l'iiminton pro
duction was tho bent tliat Nnnlius ever
foaled, or for that matter, Is'ticr than any
that either Islington or hiidorw-r ever
aired. And this puts me in mind of Iho
great cup rare at Saratoga hetftrt-n J.ong
fellow and KmfUbi-r in IS7I. was nut
there and of coumo did u tlie race, but 1
beard anil read a groat deal alnml it a', tho
time, and among other thing 1 heard this,
that tho odds wcru in favor of lsngfellow
a llicm-und to sis hundred, and a largo
majority of the New Yorkers werotticking
to I ihher at iIicmi odda.
Now, luclo John was a very cIoko
mouthed man as regarded hit borne, and
there was no powil lo wav to pump bim.
Jlut tbn night hcloro Hie riu-e thero was a
grand ball, and L'mlc John at that time
was a famous character i t Saratoga. He
was invitpd, of course, and went through
mere curiosity. It is ini-dlcx to say that
there were many beautiful women in at
tendance from all wetionn of the country,
and tho young and pretty ones winhed to
be introduced to tho Keiitutkian who
owned tho II ftest and inrt beautiful
borso in tho land, and be was
sxiu surrnuinlei! by many beau lies
with their sltendunt gallants. Iho
old gt'iillonian was modcii, but be
was both pleased and rhaimed at the at
tention paid hint. On being ankcd about
his family, ho smilingly suid that bo bad
none; that hu bad, in fact, coiuii to Sara
toga not so much for the puriMwo of raring
as lo get him a wife. In Iho meantime
tho gallants commenced to twit tho old
geiilleman about tho race. Ono of tbein
aaid, "L ucie John, thev say that King
fisher is going to I -cat I-oty'lcllow tomor
row." "Well, 1 d o-n-'t k n-o-w nlmnt
It," said t'nclo Johu, slowly. "Well,"
replied another, "everybody savs po."
Well," n-plied t'nclo John, "if l i,er
beats Ixtiglellow tomorrow he'll l.avo tj
run from miii to rrmt."
Tin-so fellows wero trying to ptnnti bim,
and there was nothing to bo Iranied from
thcs.i HiMWers; so one of tliem Skked him
bow fast he thought Kingtl-hercoiil I run a
mile, and I'ncle John Suid that ho thought
that Fisher could run a nulu in ahoui 1:41.
iTho fastest mile at this ti mo was Ileu m's
at Ciuciniiuli. 1 So )uu cu luin.n t

After the great baudicap had been run
at (iravesend. a reporter bad a that with
Jockey Hamilton as follows:
"You see, Mr. takclund, bo never gives
mc no orders. Ho never says liothiu' at
all 'cept, 'You better win dat race, yon
black raval, nu' cf ye don't I'll break
every bone in yer black body.' An' then

Whenever l'riiico went I went. When I

got to hump yo'N-lf.' "
"Why did you let Juicier nnd Hanover
get sm h a start on you going round the
turn?" was asked.
"I never gave no notion to 'm," was
Hamilton's reolv. "I said: 'No sellm'
plater from t liflon ken cotno over hero
and heat Mr. laikeland's boix:' an' I jes
laid low an' watched ole Royal, lie was
the only other horso in the raco for me. I
let out a warp foin' round do turn when I
wo Koyal mi-pin' up. 'You can't fool
me, Mr! Koyal,' I .; 'I am a lay in' low.' "
"When did you begin tbo run nnd giv
your horse his head."' asked a "bookio"
who had joined tho grouti.
