From a gentleman who an lved hi this
city from Mttrphysboro on Monday, we
learn that a big time Is looked for al that
place on Saturday, the event being a big
horse race arranged by .Mr. F. K. Al
bright and a gentleman from Sliawmc
town. The conditions of the race, wo
are told, are that Mr. Albright is to run
his noted hor.e ''Modoc Chief" against
another noted horse, single dasli of half
a mile, and the owner of the lioru that
goes under the string first to take both
horses. The race is to come oil on
Logan's track. Both the horses to run
are very fast and valuable. They were
both bred by the world-renowned race
hore Lexington, and fast time will no
doubt be made, a: it is evident both
hores will be pushed to win.
