HUDAS MAID LIKED
TO WIN HER RACES
Good Horses Will Be Seen at
NORFOLK, Va.. April 2. Bourgeois,
son of Burxomastor and Victoria M.,
who will hear the silks of Mr. Earl,
a sportsman of N'sw Jersey, this yenr,
s the most forward two-year-old quar
tered at the Jamoatown Jockey Club's
track. He turned a half in fifty-six
seconds over a fast ttack Sunday
morning, and con Lelghton, tho man
who brought him up from Charleston,
pays he will show some speed before
the week is out.
BourgeolB is pointing for a race to be
run the opening day. If Ielghton'a
reputation for veracltv was not fixed
he might find it difficult to convince
folks that this Bourgeois Is a two-year-old.
Thn colt, n biff bay with block
points, stands lust .under sixteen hands,
, and has the development of a thrco-year-old
H? haa powerful shoulders,
a splendid middle piece, and well de
vtlored quarters, and he weighs nil of
His legs and feet look as though they
might endure forever, and, Letghton, a
man .if wide experience, predicts that
he will prove tin uncommcnlv " tough
campaigner. Bourgeois started five times
at Charleston, finishing second twice
But lit- did not do his best In South
Carolina. His racing at Palmetto Park
was intended merely as preliminary
work for the Norfolk meeting.
I.eichtnn had no Intention of hurry
ing such a big youngster. Bourgeois 'is
home bred. Mr. Karl, who owned and
raced his dam. a daughter of fjold
S)lniiir, bred bv Jamps B. Haggln,
raised the oolt at the Crawfoid farm In
.Monmouth county. Now Jcrpty.
Pat. "".' Yl" 'l veteran hirseman, who
watched Bourgeois run at Charlcston.and
was deeply improved bv his way of
handling hlniaelf, predicts thut the son
of Rurgomaster will make the bent
two-year-old of the Norfolk and Pint
lb o meetings.
Cotnfnz Coon, the only horse known
to have been raised at the old Graves,
end race traek, lias recovered from the
cold he developed Just after his ar
rival at Norfolk and Is snlloplng again,
uelghton bad hlro on the track Sunday
with Hilda Maid, and he galloped u
mile at a two-minute clip. His short
Hpell of sickness dj.l not nut him .Lack,
and he will be racing next week.
Hudas Maid Angular.
Hildas Maid, a sister of Hudas Sis
ter, Ib a lightly put up, angular miss
of the Blues type with a trick of break
ing from the uarrier light lightning
and moving quickly into her stride. She
will win here.
One of the two-year-olds Pat Olvlll
brought down from Bennlng is a
daughter of Sain and La Sorelia, and
a full sister to Emperor William. Sho
Is compactly made and active and la
ready to run us well as are all of Mr.
Clvill's horses. The Sain filly has a
Mkoly two-year-old stablemate In a
chestnut colt by Bannockburn out of
All of Clvill's horses came from Bar
ney Schreiber's "Woodlands stud in Mis
souri. Four of them are three-year-olds.
These are Little Erne, a brown colt by
6ain; Ttidgeland and Sheriff Gannigan,
respectively a chestnut and a brown, by
Deutschland (he a son of Sain), nnd
Aplastar, a bay by Bannockburn.
Sheriff Gannigan is the only maiden
In the lot. The others won la3t season

get a purse here during tho spring
meeting of the Jamestown Jockey Club,
which begins Easter Monday to con

No, we fans don't like this rain, but
we'd rather have it tumble down upon

Catholic University, though white
washed by the Nationals, has nothing
of which to bo ashamed. The Tied and
Black team Is as strong aa the next
college nine, and "Chief" Greene, by
eliminating his feverish deslro to got
runners napping, can be most formida

always dangerous. It Is too bad tho

FEINLI UY PITCH
IN TODAY'S GAME
Georgetown Team Hopes to
Win After Whitewash
Victory Over Lafayette.
Georgetown will meet Columbia this
afternoon In the second game of the big
week holiday games. Coach Sprlgman
has selected Chris Felnll to work for
the Blue and Gray team and from the
exhibition given by the pitcher against
the Nationals on Saturday an excep
tional performance should be credited
to the popular twlrler. Fury will do
Columbia comes with several star
players, notably ICelndl, reputed the best
first baseman In the colleges today.
Keindl Is also a basketball player of
ability and has played for several years
on the Light Blue and White. Tho Co
lumbia team has had but few games
this year, but on form should be a
strong contender In today's game.
With the first game of the big series
of the week safely tucked away with
Lafayette's defeat yesterday by 4 to 0,
Georgetown is looking forward to the
games to come with the assurance that
big Dave White Is there with the goods.
The big fellow had everything yester
day that goes to make a heady pitcher
and combined with faultless support be
hind htm succeeded in shutting out La
fayette with ease.
Ryan, utility fielder for Georgetown,
furnished the sensations In the game by
grabbing everything that came his way
including one catch that was thought
to be out of his reach.

A Fertile Spojt.
No one will ever know Ju3t what a good ball town
Washington, D. C. also U. S. A. is, until some man
ager is lucky enough to furnish the citizens thereof a
team up among the contenders.
It's a matter of some doubt if New York or Chicago
would outdraw this city on a steady run where its
clammy athletes were in poking distance of tho flag.
How many paid-in souls would New York, Chicago,
or Philadelphia average with a team grapneled through
a weary stretch of years to seventh place? Nino and
three-quarters is right. If Griff can only demolish the
sempiternal hoodoo which has harassed the spot where
Colonel Roosevelt is willing to return, the gate receipts
would not only turn J. P. Morgan a mottled blue with
envy, but there Is also the chance that we may be will
ing to let our name go before the Baltimore convention
with four years of local residency ahead.

Tide, Time and Ty for no man wait;
They dally not within tho gate,

The fastest of the three is Ty.
The Perfect Laxative
For Elderly People
New Orleans carries an athlete by the name of Mar

Raymond into tho controversy and establish at least a
class B bonmot But sterner matters beckpn us along.
"Ball players," announces an esteemed co-pal of the
Sporting Pen, "are only human after all." The author
of these stirring lines was evidently never a pitcher
forced to face Lajole, Baker, Cobb, or Wagner four
times in one afternoon.

Most elderly, peoplo are troubled in
this way, with accompanying symptoms
of belching, drowsiness after eating,
headaches and general lassitude. Fre
quently there Is difficulty of digesting

ensues, as It Is hard to find a suitable
remedy. First of all tho advice may be
given that elderly people should not use
salts, cathartic pills or powders, waters

What they need, women as well as men,
is a mild laxative tonic, ono that is

The remedy that fills all theso re

properties that strengthen the stomach,
liver and bowels, is Dr. Caldwell's Syr

people use, to the exclusion of all other
remedies. Truthworthy people like Mr.
Joseph Smith, 308 Gressett St., Peters

take it at regular intervals and In that
way not only maintain general good
health, but that they have not in years
felt as good as they do now. You will
do well to always have a bottle of It In
