GENERAL SPORTING KEWS OF THE DAT
J. "W. Harbison, of New Castle, Secre
tary of the Trotting Horse Breeders' As
sociation of Western Pennsylvania, was in
the city yesterday arranging for the annnal
meeting of the association. The meeting
i ill be held at the Seventh Avenue Hotel
on the 14th inst. It is expected that this
meeting will be one of the most interesting
that has been held by the association. The'
latter is in every way progressing jrcrider
fullv, and its members own more valuable
stock now than ever. During a conversa
tion last evening, Mr. Harbison said:
'Oar associaHri2.ta done well this year.
Oar rap& -meetine af Indiana was a great
success in all respects and let me siy that
Indiana has the best half mile track in
Pennsylvania. We did so well there that
our annual meeting will be a pleasant one.
At our approaching meeting we will decide
on the stakes and daises next year. I
think that we will decide to have fewer
races and bigger purses. A change of this
kind is desired.
"lam inclined to think that such a change
will not be a bad one. Both Indiana and
Washington want our meeting next year,
and I cannot tell where the next meeting
will be held. Of course none of us have
anything to say against Indiana. Our
members amount to 100 and every memb-r
is a horse-breeder. One of our members, Mr.
Sibley, is now a Congressman, and we are
all proud ot the tact He is a fine gentle
man." Regarding the voung trotting stock of
the association, Mr. Harbison said: "The
youngsters are remarkable. Miller and
Sibley, of course, have some verv good
ones, and so have the majority of our mem
bers. At the farm with which I am con
nected we have three flyers. We have a 6-year-old
that has gone a trial mile in 2:17J
We also have a 3-vear-old, by Bezant, that
has Biade a trial in 2:18, and still another
3-year-old that has made a mark of 2:23.
Mr. B. C Howe, of New Castle, has a 2-year-old
colt, bv Clay, that has shown a
mile in 2:40. This oolt is really a promis
ing horse, and. is expected to do wonders.
Generally speaking, I can say without ex
aggeration that our association is to-day
stronger in numbers of horses, better in
quality of stock and richer in money than
it ever was.

Eastern sporting .authorities concerning the
battle between Grx'ggains and Costello. On
one side it Is claitned that the men fought
with pluck, vigor and skill. In support of
this it is arsued that Greggains had his nose
broken and Costello bada broken hand. Both
men were almost nnable to stand when the
On the other hand, it is claimed that at no
time did the men flgnt to hurt each other,
and slmplv tttood off at longr range, feinting
and making light exchanges. In one in
stance, It is arsned, about 10 rounds were
fought and not an effective blow was struck.
It Is further claimed that if Greggains had
fought anything like a fighter after the

A RE1JABKABLE AZTEC PRAYER
Quoted in Full ly a Colorado Fciontist in
Jroof of Dis Views.
A 1Y0XDERFUL PIECE OF LITERATURE
The following is a portion of Prof. "W. T,
Poster's scientific notes, which accompanied
his weather forecasts this week in the
Rocty Mountain ATnw ot Denver. In his let
ters for the past five months, the professor
has maintained that the earth has several
times been struck by comets, which have
caused the different geological ages. The
letter is of intense interest at this time:
"It is claimed by many that the Aztecs
are the oldest race of people on earth, and
their records and traditions sound much
like those of Genesis and Job. Their his
toric legends divide the past time of their
race into four epochs, aes or suns. The
first of these ages terminated, according to
Gama, in a destruction ot the people of the
world by a famine: the second in a destruc
tion by winds; in the third the human race
was swept away by fire, and the fourth was
a destruction by water. The Hiadoo
legends are very similar.
v "The Aztec prayer is a most remarkable
piece of literature, and was evidently of
fered and perfected during a long continued
pestilence. It is sublime In thought and
language, and like the hymns ot the Vedas
and prayers of the 'Hebrews, has been
handed down for thousands ot years. As
evidence that the human race on the West-.
era Hemisphere was destroyed by a comet
I give the following extracts trom this
ancient, wonderful and sublime Aztec
prayer as translated into the English lan
guage: The prayer of tho Aztecs.
" 'O Lord, Thou hast held it good to for
sake us in these days according to the coun
sel Thou hast as well in heaven as in hades.
Alas for us, in that Thine anger and indig
nation have descended upon us in these davs;
alas in that the many and previous afflic
tions of Thy wrath have overgone and
swallowed us up, coming down even as
stones, spears and arrows upon the wretches
that inhabit the earth. This is the sore
pestilence with which we are afflicted and
" 'A great destruction the rain and pesti
lence alreadv make in this nation and what
is most pitiful ot all, the little children that
are innocent and understand nothing, they
too, die, briken and dashed to pieces as
against stones aud a wall, and there re
main of them not even those in their 'cra
dles. Of young and old, men and women,
there remain neither root nor branch: Thy
nation, Thy people. Thy wealth, are leveled
down and destroyed.
" 'The fire of the pestilence, made ex
ceedingly hot, is upon Thv nation, burning
and smaking as a 5re in a hut, leavinz noth
ing upright and sound. The grinders of
Thy teeth (falling stones?) are employed
and Thy bitter whips upon the miserable
people who have become lean. Has; Thou
altogether forsaken Thy nation and Thy
people? Hast Thou verily determined tha't
it perish and that there be no memory in
the world, that the peopled places become
a wooded hill and a wilderness of stones?
Serenity and Clearness Wanted.
" 'Is it already fixed in Thy divine coun
sel that there is to be no mercy nor pity for
us until the arrows of Thy fury are spent to
our utter perdition and destruction, that
the snn shall never more shine upon us,
but that we must remain in perpetual dark
ness and silence? O, our Lord, Thine
arrows and stones have sorely hurt this
"O most strong Lord make an end of
this fog and smoke of Thy resentment,
quench also the burning and destroying fire
of Thy anger, let serenity and clearness
come, let the small birds ot Thy people be
gin to sing and approach the sun; give them
quiet weather, so that they may cause their
voices to reach Thy Highness.
"It may appear 'wonderful that the Aztec
priesthood co ilu preserve and hand down
to us through the ages this cavern hymn,
but it could no more oe lost than could the
Lord's Prayer. This hymn of the Aztecs
contain many passages, the meanings of
which their 'priests bad lost ages before
America was discovered, just as our
learned theologians for more than 4,000
years have not understood many passages
in Job and Genesis.
"These legends, traditions, histories of
every tribe, race, nation, point to a great
and important event, a cataclysm by which
the human race was almost destroyed, and
this, cataclvsm was followed by an im
mense period of darkness, then a great
cloud, and then the light returned to the
The Great Conflagration.
"The traditions of cave life always ac
company those in reference to a great fire
anil all unerringly point tp the comet as the
"Geological records prove that the sur
face rocks under the drift have been ex
posed to great heat, in many places from 50
to 100 feet deep, and this could come from
no other cause than a comet striking the
"Our geologists contend that there was
an age of thick clouds, of floods, snows,
glacier ice, during which the waters of the
seas were lowered, and no other cause than
a comet could do all these wondrous works.
''From whence came the drift and the
gravel and the clays? They are not in
places to which nature would carry them
unless we admit that a great comet struck
the earth and deposited its water, its min
eral clays, its gravel and that which we
now call the dirt.
"There is no harmony in the geological
record unless we admit that materials in
great bulk came from outer space. The ris
ing and falling of the seas, hundreds of
feet and suddenly, cannot be denied, nor
can such be accounted for except by acces
sions from without, such as might have
belonged to our moon when it was a

NEW EAST END DEMOCEATIC CLUB.
It "Will Apply for a Charter and Support
Captain Kerr for Mayor.
At its meeting last night the East End
Democratic Association instructed its
attorney to apply for a charter at
once. The association was organized
in the Twenty-first ward as a local
club last spring. Headquarters were
established in Moll's Hall, on Frankstown
avenue, and soon the membership began to
roll up. It now numbers nearly 100 ot the
representative Dusiness and professional
men of the city. Eecently it was decided
to make the organization permanent and
more general in character, and the title was
changed to suit
The ssociation is opposed to the leaders
in city government affairs, and expects to
take a lively part in the coming election.
T. D. P. Orr, of Heiskel, Hamilton & Orr,
is President. He is authority tor the state
ment that the majority of the club has uni
formnlly expressed a preference for Captain
Thomas It. Kerr as the party's candidate
for Mayor. Mr. Orr said:
"McKenna cannot be elected becanse he
is believed to have affiliations with City
Hall Republicans. On this account two
thirds of his party will not vote
lor him, and the Republicans expected
to give him their support will use
the Baker ballot against him. Mr. Kerr
is a substantial "business man who will
draw ihe vote of both parties. We believe
Captain Kerr is the only Democrat yet
named who can be elected."
THIBTT SATS EACH,
Two Allegheny Tooths Sent to the Work
house for Knowinc Too Macli.
Hugh Inghram and James Jones, aged
respectively 19 and 17 years, had a hearing
before Police Magistrate Brinkcr, of Alle
gheny, yesterday afternoon on a charge of
being suspicious persons.
Last Saturday William Marsh, a roller
who works at Lindsey & McCutcheon's
mill in lower Allegheny, had $187 stolen
from his coat while at work. The robbery
was reported to Superintendent Muth, who
detailed Detectives Steele and Johnson to
look the matter up, and they found that
the two boys arrested, although they did
not steal the money themselves, knew who
A number of witnesses testified that the
boys were troublesome about the mill, and
often picked up little articles and carried
them off. They were given 30 days each to
the workhouse. William Inghram, a
younger brother of Hugh, it is alleged, stole

Mr. J. P. Blaize, an extensive real estate
dealer in Des Moines, Iowa., narrowly es
caped one ot the severest attacks of pneu
monia while in the northern part of that
State during a recent blizzard, says the
Saturday Revieic. Mr. Blaize had occasion
to drive several miles during the storm and
was so thoroughly chilled that he was un
able to get warm, and inside of an hour atter
his return he was threatened with a severe
case ot pneumonia or lung fever. Mr. Blaize
sent to the nearest drugstore and got a bottle
ot Chamberlain's Cough Bemedy, of which
he had often heard, and took a'number of
large doses. He says the effect was wonder
ful, and in a short time he was breathing
quite easily. He kept on taking the
medicine, and the next day was able So
come to Des Moines. Mr. Blaize regards
his 'ure as simply wonderful.
