A RECORD SMASHED.
The Time for Three-Year-
Olds Reduced Yesterday.
Splendid Running in the Two-
Marigold Wins Easily in Unexampled
Honors Easy Between Favorites and
Outsiders—The Closing Day One of
Fine Sport Largely Attended.
The annual fair of the Sixth District
Agricultural association was brought to
a close yesterday afternoon, and proved
to be one of the most successful of its
kind ever held in this city in every way.
There was another large crowd at the
Agricultural park, and an excellent card
had been provided for the amusement
of the visitors, but it suffered somewhat
in comparison with the sensational one
of the preceding day.
The first event on the programme
was a seven-eighths-mile dash for 2-
year-olds, for which Dave Bridges' Peri
and Chase's Mystery were the only con
testants. The former was constituted
favorite at 10 to 8, and justified the con
fidence reposed in her by winning by a
length and a half in the fast time of a
a minute and.a half.
The race—Jhe flag fell to an even
start at the very first attempt. Peri
was the first to show in front, but
Mystery was right at her side, and at
the three-quarter mark had the lead by
a head. The favorite increased her
pace, however, and at the half mile had
regained her position. As they rounded
the bend Peri had the pole and wast hree
quarters of a length in the lead. Mys
tery came with a rush, however, at the
head of the stretch, and got on even
terms with the favorite; but the pace
was too hot for her, and as both came
up under the whip, she dropped back
beaten. Peri never faltered and finished
with two open lengths to spare. Time
The sensational event of the day was
unquestionably the second, a two-miles
race for all ages. Although there were
only three starters the betting was very
lively, and more money changed hands
upon this race, than any other during
the meeting. The pools which had fluc
tuated considerably over night, were
comparatively steady, Marigold being a
pronounced favorite. Opinion was very
much divided over the relative chances
of Naicho B. and Four jAces for second
choice, and when the pools closed each
was at $25 against $50 for Marigold. The
race which was an exciting one for over
a mile and a half resulted in an easy vic
tory for the favorite in the extraordi
narily good time, of 3:30>0, which beats
the slate record for that distance, and
the world's record fpr a |three-year-old.
Murphy, who ro<le the winner, waa en
thusiastically cheered on returning to
the stand to weigh in.
The ratie —They came for the start at
the very first break, Marigold having a
little the best of it. Four Aces cut away
at the turn and was making the running
a length from Marigold at the first quar
ter, Naicho B going easily at the latter's
girth. This order was maintained to
the half, but on the upper turn Mari
gold closed upon Four Aces and Naicho
B made a spurt with her. All were to
gether at the head of the stretch and
raced past the stand neck and neck at a
terrific pace. The company was too hot
for Four Aces, and he attempted to drop
out at the drawgate. Cook plied his
whip, however, and sent him after the
others, but he was never in it again.
The leaders raced round the lower turn
for the second time stride for stride,
girth to girth, but at the fifth quarter
Naicho B went to the front. Marigold
closed with him, and at the mile and
a half was three-quarters of a length
in the lead. Naicho B's tail went up
on the upper turn and Marigold draw
ing away, entered the stretch three open
lengths in the lead, and came under the
wire in a common canter. Naicho B.
was second, six lengths behind, and
Four Aces brought up the rear twenty

The third race, a five-eighths dash,
for all ages, was not upon the card, but
was arranged hurriedly by Secretary
Benjamin. There were four entries,
Zingarella, Alfarata, Ida Glenn and
Gambo, and there was very little to
choose between them. Ida Glenn was a
pronounced favorite in the pools, but
the others were equally well thought of
for second ch< ice. The talent met with a
terrible surprise in the victory of Al
farata, who beat the favorite by a short
head after giving her two pounds.
The race—After six breaks, in each of
which Gambo got off well in front, but
refused to rejoin the others on their re
turn journey, the flag fell to a straggling
start, with the favorite in the lead. She
made the pace a hot one to the upper
turn, when Gambo went through his
field and supplanted her. The latter
then led to the head of the stretch,
when Ida Glenn closed upon him, and
Alfarata who had been laying back in
the third place moved up also. The
three came up the stretch on even
terms, but when within 250 yards of the
wire Alfarata came with a rush and
snatched the race from Ida Glenn by a
short head. Gambo lost the place by a
neck, but Zingarella was several lengths
behind at the finish; time I:o2>s.
The last race, the 2:45 diss trot, was
the biggest surprise of the day, as Jiny*
who went begging in the pools at ft
against $30 before the race, won
two heats very cleverly, only lost the
third by a head, and won the last with
First heat—The trio got away at their i
second attempt to a very even start, but,
Ji n. who had the pole, at once went to I
the front. At the fii-st turn all three j
went up in the air, but Jim was on bis I
feet and away in an instant. Before the
others recovered he was ten lengths

Second heat—The horses scored three
times before receiving the word, but
they went off to a good start. Jim went
to the front at the turn, and as both
Leon and Victor broke again, he drew
away, and had gained an advantage of
six lengths at the quarter mark.
He maintained this lead to the
upper turn, where he was slowed
up and Leon closed the gap
between them considerably. The lat
ter, however, was not speedy enough to
overtake Jim on the stretch, and the
Chino horse won easily by four open
lengths. Victor narrowly escaped being
shut out; time 2:3o>^.

Third heat—After scoring six times,
the trio received the word to an even
start, and Jim at once took the foremost
place. Victor and Leon broke again at
the turn and the former dropped back
twenty lengths. Leon soon got down
again, and gradually overhauling Jim
on the backstretch, passed him and
led by an open length at the half
mile. He increased this to two lengths
at the head of the stretch, but Jim stole
a march upon him and came with a
rush at the finish, and, amid great ex
citement, both passed under the wire

the heat to Leon by a head; time

There was a large attendace at the
Horticultural Fair last night, and many
people who have never seen the fine ex
hibits of fruits which delight the eye of
the visitor, expressed astonishment at
the products of the wonderful soil ami
climate of Sonthern California, which
make it possible for such enormous
fruits and vegetables to be possible
things. Watermelons weighing over 100
pounds, gigantic bunches of many kinds
of grapes, apples and in fact all kinds of
fruits displayed in tempting style at
tracted the admiration of all beholders.
A stem of tobacco at least seven feet
long, corn stalks too high to mention
without causing one to be discredited,
were to be seen. The bottled products
of the vineyard in attractive ' original
packages" are not wanting either.
In the art gallery splendid specimens of
the taxidermist's art,of the photographer
and the embroiderer, were to be seen.
No exhibition of the horticultural di
vision of the association has ever been of
as grand a character as that of the pres
Among the finest exhibits at the
horticultural fair are those of Henry
Bohrmann, the celebrated mantel
maker, and they attract considerable at
tention. The wood carving in the art
room, in antique oak, is considered a
masterpiece in that line of business. On
the stage a mantel with illuminated
parlor basket is the cynosure of all eyes.
Henry Bohrmann's reputation as a
manufacturer of mantels is almost
national. He makes them in wood, iron
and slate. Fine cabinet ware is made
to order in his establishment. Bank,
office and store fixtures are some of Bohr
mann's specialties. He fitted up the
German-American Savings bank, and
any one who has seen the offices of that
institution may be able to judge of the
high degree of his workmanship. This
is the filth time that he takes the first
prize for the art works in his line of
business. Art tiles for mantel decor
ations, grates, brass goods, gas logs and
all kinds of open fireplaces are either
kept in stock by him or made to order.
His warerooms are at 514 South Spring
One of the special features of the fair
was the exhibit of the Los Angeles
Lighting company. They had on the
platform a number of stoves adapted to
cooking food by means of gas. To give
practical demonstration of the fact that
a good dinner can be prepared on a gas
stove, every night during fair week an
excellent cook has prepared waffles,
fritters, oysters, roast beef and chicken,
and these eatables were distributed
among the visitors. Last night, how
ever, the company did themselves
proud by offering a gorgeous dinner to
the Los Angeles press. Fish, turkey
and a variety of other good things were
cooked on the large gas range, and made
a delectable supper for the hungry re

Be Careful of Your Derby In Summer.
"Derby hats must be handled with
velvety touch in summer." Few people
are aware of the fact that the great heat
at this season of the year softens a stiff
hat so much that it can almost be rolled
up into a ball. That's why the crown
should be handled as little as possible,
because it is the easiest thing in the
world to dent the hat when it is soft, and
the mark will stay there forever. The
hat is all right if you don't touch the
crown while it is soft, because it regains
its natural stiffness as soon as cold
weather cools it off. If you hold a derby
hat near a hot stove it will lose its stiff
ness in a few moments and be limp as a
rag.—New York Journal.
| Increase of Railway Mileage.
i The increase in railway mileage in this
country during the first six months of
the year was 1,893 miles. This is ac
counted highly creditable. More miles
of railroad have been constructed in the
southern states than in any other section
of the country. The northwestern states
and territories, where construction went
on rapidly for a while, have nearly
stopped building. Massachusetts laid
but a mile and a half of new road.
Maine about ten miles. The other New
England states stood still. California
gained one mile.—Chicago News.
Girls on Bace Horses.
I John C. Moore, a rancher near Moore
Station, permitted two of his daughters
to ride a couple of race horses he owns,
one of them. Gold Dust, being well
known for speed. The girls rode with
surcingles only, but the horses became
unmanageable. Being two of them and
supposing themselves matched for a race,
the high bred animals dashed away with
.their inexperienced riders. The girl?
were soon thrown off and dragged a
short distance. One had her arm broken,
nnd the other was injured internally.—

SUMMERING THE PETS.
HOW THEY ARE LODGED, BOARDED
AND CARED FOR.
Families Believed of Embarrassing In
cumbrances—Some Things Worth Know
ing About Dogs and Other Animals.
An Interview with a Specialist.
In the summer season, when so many
families shut up their city residences
and go to the seaside or country, the
disposition to be made of the family pet,
be it dog, cat or bird, is often a most
embarrassing question. It is often a
nuisance to take it along. Humanity de
mands that if left behind it must be
properly cared for. The numerous fanci
ers, dealers and doctors of domestic pets
in this city fully appreciate this situa
tion of affairs, and in summer notify the
public by signs on their establishments
that with them can be found "summer
board for domestic pets."
A LARGE BUSINESS.
"The business is qnite an extensive
one," said a keeper of one of these "pet
hotels," "yet it is not as great as we
would like it to be. 1 think that the
keeping of a house cat or dog is getting
less and less popular with people in or
dinary circumstances. The wealthy
people keep them because they have the
room and servants to look after them.
The wealthy, though, generally own
their country or beach places and send
their pets there, so we get very few
boarders from them.
"While people in ordinary circum
stances are giving up dogs and cats as
bouse pets they are growing fonder and
fonder of song birds. Dealers who take
birds to board are now doing a rushing
business. People of moderate means
when they leave town generally go to
hotels where they would not be allowed
to take their pets, so it is from them we
get most of our boarders. One Sixth av
enue dealer is boarding nearly one hun
dred canaries and many parrots and
mocking birds. Fifty cents a week is
the charge for small birds and seventy
five cents for parrot 3. We charge $10 a
month for a dog's board* and $? a month
"People who value their domestic pets
should be very careful how they care
for them during the summer. Give
your birds plenty of rape seed, and as
little large seed as possible. Slip a piece
of green stuff between the bars of the
cage occasionally. Also give them a bit
of apple once a day. Apple is a natural
tonic to birds. Keep your cats indoors
as much as possible, and brush their
coats thoroughly every day. Feed them
lightly, giving them fish and milk dishes,
but no meat.
HOW TO CARE FOR DOGS.
"There is not one owner of a dog in
ten who knows how to care for the ani
mal The dog should be kept as quiet
as possible throughout the heat of the
day, but he should not be chained or
worried with restraint He should be
fed lightly and only twice a day, and
change should be made in his food fre
quently. Don't give him meat Give
him a bone to chew once in a while.
For staple food give him milk dishes and
vegetables. A great many people will
tell you a dog won't eat vegetables. If
a dog turns away from vegetables the
first time take them away at once. Give
him a fresh supply at the next meal. He
will be hungry enough to eat them then,
and soon will take to them as naturally
as to meat
"Dogs should frequently be washed in
cold water containing a little alcohoL
Use common yellow soap. If you must
muzzle your dog in summer, don't keep
him without a muzzle all the rest of the
year. Put it on him for a half hour or
so every day, and he will get so used to
it that when he has to wear it steadily
fit won't worry him. If people would do
this for their pets there would be fewer
so called mad dogs. Dogs are very like
ly to have a rush of blood to the head.
That gives them a running fit. They
froth at the mouth and people think
they are mad. I never saw a mad dog,
and 1 have been handling dogs for fifty
years. When a dog gets one of these
running fits he is harmless, and if his
head is ducked into a pail of cold water
he will quickly come around."
"At this time," said a South Fifth
avenue bird fancier, "not one quarter of
the birds and animals here are mine. Most
of them are boarders. There are, be
sides the canaries, finches, thrushes,
mocking birds, macaws, parrots, and in
that row of strong wire cages are cats of
valuable strains, and back further I have
the monkeys, while 1 keep the dogs in
the basement and in kennels in the
The reporter walked into the yard and
found kenneled there comfortably a St.
Bernard, several fox terriers, pugs and
black and tans, and there were probably
twenty more in the basement. The
fancier said that himself and his wife
and grown daughter had their hands full
in caring for, feeding and doctoring the
menagerie in the summer, but as regu
lar custom was light he found it so
profitable that from year to year he in
creased his facilities. He charges for
birds from 25 to 60 cents a week, for
cats $2, and for dogs and monkeys from
$1 to $5 a week
"That St Bernard over tbere," said
the fancier, "will eat as much as you or
1, and then he must be cleaned and
washed and exercised occasionally."—
