BOOKS BEAT SIX
TALENT HAS A HARD TIME OF
IT AT ASCOT .
Favorites Are Bowled Over With Dig.
gutting Regularity— Elie Takes
the Brooke Course
; Another severe fall was experienced
ny the students of form at the Ascot
race track yesterday afternoon. Not a
single favorite got near the money
mark. The six first choices were played
to a standstill and the books reaped a
harvest unprecedented in the history
of the game In Los Angeles. Each of
the fourteen books which ■ are doing
business cleaned up heavily. It la es
timated that the pencllers took out of
the ring more than $40,000.
The weather was bright and crisp,
with an appreciable rise In temperature,
and a card -which was only ordinary
kept a fair-sized crowd on the anxious
seat all of the afternoon trying to pick
| Few of, the big bettors were mixed up
with the game yesterday, and alto
gether the speculating was far below
the average. Not a great number of
stiff commissions were registered.
Ten was counted on the talent. The
' day was suited , for perfect enjoyment
of the sport. The card was only or
dinary and, as the populace is longing
for racing-, the crowd was a little above
the; average considering the attraction.
Those who had taken the precaution to
sew up car fare in their waistcoat
pocket rode home; the others walked.
One ■ little well played second choice
managed to squeeze her way home in
the ! Stygian darkness of form, ■ but
her victory availed naught. This was
in the fifth race, when Evea G. was
played aa though it were all over. She
carried all the wise Investments of the
track and at the short price of 7 to 10
finished second to Eleven Bells.
The most pretentious race of the day,
a 4-year-old and upward event, sell
ing, drew out a fair field. The quartet
was asked to take a trip over the
Brooks course (seventy-three yards less
than a mile and a quarter). The books
had something up their sleeves in this
event, and kept the public guessing by
posting two favorites— Rough Rider
and Heather Honey — equal first choices
at 2. t0 1 each. Elie was held at 7 to 2
and 4 to I, 1 while Watereure and Wen
rlck 4 sold at 15 to leach. A ton of
money poured in on Watereure, and
at; post time his price was hammered
down to 5 to 1. ■■ • . .
f ' The winner of this event turned up
in Elie, second choice in the betting and
with; hardly a friend. .The chalkmen
cleaned up more to this race than any
other event on the card. Wenrlck got
the best of the start, but Heather
Honey raced, past him on the back
stretch and retained this advantage
until the quarter pole. That good old
campaigner showed a lot of speed be
tween- the three-eighths pole and the
stretch bend and for a moment threat
ened . the leaders. The Jockey saved
ground by shinning the rail, but the
old horse was not there when called
; upon. At the end he was tired enough
\to 'lie down. Rough Rider was in a
pocket all the way round, but with
clear sailing closed with a rush. Elie
' was always in a good position and at
the weights and distance proved much
the best. He came up on the outside
. and easily stood off the determined
lush of Rough Rider.
Many considered the effort of Water
. cure mo3t creditable, from the fact
I that he has been in the barn for a year
:,or more and has only started twice be
fore, in that time. His race of yeßter
day was a good one and when properly
. placed he will display seme of his old
. In the race preceding this event Klt
■ tie B, a fast trick from the stable of
I James Blute, was selected by the talent
. to gather all the money, but she failed
jto perform up to her work-out. It was
la 2-year-old event and the babies were
.'asked to go over three and a half fur
longs of ground. S. M. Williams' Silver
Sue, F. T. i Wood's Azuba and J. K.
■ Frayling's Annis, were the touted good
things and each of them were played
to some extent. Annls had been work
ing well with Father Catcham and her
• performances in the morning were of
such high class that she went to the
■ post with not a few supporters. Kittle
sot most of the big money, but the
best she could do was to finish third.
At the start she was badly messed
about, but at that she about ran her
The winner, B. Schrelber's Tendl, ran
a much improved race over her last
dart and scored at the Juicy odds of
12 to 1. Silver Sue was second and
Kittle B third. Frayling's filly, Annis,
acted badly at the post and appeared
Inclined to sulk. She may amount to
something later on.
The first race on yesterday's program
brought together twelve of the worst
ever. Great Mogul, Mai Lowery and
St. Winlfrede were the best liked of the
unwieldy field, and each came In for
Home support. -Mai Lowery was the
supposed good thing and played as
though it were all over. She ran a fall
race at that and got second place, with
Mogul In front and McFlecknoe third.
The latter showed a lot of early speed
und 'looked all over the winner at the
head of the stretch. He stopped to
nothing when the pinch came.
Q. B. Morris' Cloverton, at 4 to 1,
won the fourth race on the card from
Sugden and Susie Christian. Our Pride
was backed to a standstill in tiiia race
and went to the' post at 3 to 1 after
uoenins at 7 to I.' Crlffll and Wager j
were nlso well playM to win the event
The defeat of Evea O. In the fifth
race gave the talent nn awful nhoclc.
She was backed from even money to
7 to 10, but could do no better than
finish sceond choice In the betting. The
Lieutenant was third.
Ralph Reese captured the sixth race
at the liberal price of .7 to 1 from Light
of Day and Sweet Kitty Bellalr*. .Toe
Kelly, well played at 7 to 1, finished
out of the money.
Mai Lowery was heavily played In the
first race. After being prominent for a
short distance In the stretch, Great
Mogul beat her out. She ran a clever
race and Is a good future prospect.
Tab McFlecknoe. Is good and fit and
after showing a lot of early speed only
tired at the end, and in worth remem
bering for the next time out.
St. Wlnlfrlde was the touted good
thing In the first race, but the Sink
castoff failed to deliver the goods and
will do better next time, as she ran as
If short. This race will do her good.
Silver Sue ran a cracking good race
yesterday. Is a good looker and ran as
if a bit green. Should be heard from
Annls Is worth putting down for the
next time out. Away poorly, she did
not know what was expected of her,
and when urged on after a rough Jour
ney through the stretch finished like
Azuba worked a quarter of a mile In
:23 on several occasions, but got away
badly In each of her starts.' She will
get away some day and win.
Watereure was backed from 15 to 1
to 6 to 1 In the third race, but the
track was a trifle too slow. He loomed
up dangerously at the head of the
stretch, but stopped to nothing. He
Wants a lightning fast track.
Tom McHugh and "Stew" Peters will
probably be seen in the saddle In the
steeplechase race on Friday. They
headed the list of steeplechase riders
In Chicago last summer.
Had Fuller on Rough Rider met
with clear sailing he would p*bably
have won. He was pocketed until the
seventy-yard pole before he could get
Bookmaker Bob Wldney, who claims
to be the biggest winner at Ascot dur
ing the present meeting, is planning to
form a company with a capital of
$500,000 and establish a permanent
Herbert on Susie Christian would
perhaps have won had he picked the
best going, instead of getting too close
to the rail, where the track was heavy.
This one will win about the next crack
out of the box.
Sugden was much the best in the
fourth race. Away badly, he was pock
eted and v cut off. He got through on
the rail in the heavy going and Just
failed to get up. Is a good future pros
Crosby led his Held all the way to the
stretch and when placed where he be
longs will earn brackets.
Herbert on The Lieutenant carried
Evea G. out, whereby she lost several
lengths. Otherwise she would have
been closer up.
One book chalked up 20 to 1 against
Kehailan In the last race and the mob
was there with the coin. The penciler
put up 2 to 1 then and they went to It
like ducks go to water. The book
maker let the fortune pass his door
as Kehalian finished outside the money.
The first 100 to 1 shot to put in an
appearance inside the money since Dug
Martin ran second at 50 to 1 a place
was Sweet Kitty Bellairs, who was as
good as 20 to 1 for the show.
Throw out Schoolcraft's race. Sulked
as usual all the way.
. Every stake is well filled at Los An
geles and the indications are that some
of the best stake animals in the coun
try will be seen on the California track
after the holidays.
It is not unlikely that the ban against
Jockey Boner may shortly be removed.
At present he is restricted to stable
mounts at Oakland.
The Ascot ' Derby has closed with
sixty-five entries. It is to be run Feb
ruary 18 over the new Brooks course,
seventy-three yards short of one mile
and a quarter. The race is for 3-year
olds, with $2000 added money. .The
Derby last year was run on a heavy
track and was easy for Bill Curtis, but
a fight is promised this year. The
horses named are: Slnicado, Danzuder,
Capitanazo, Paciflco, , R. L. Johnson,

The new course was adopted in order
to shorten the distance and to avoid
the stretch turn at the start. The start
is at the head of the stretch.
Jockeys H. Phillips and Nlcol have
ridden between them sixty winners In
the 142 races run at the> Crescent City
track, which is almost 50 per cent.
J'li ill ips leads the list' of successful
Jockeys there, with thirty-two winning
mounts to his credit. He was second
nineteen times and third twenty-one
times, being out of the money but
twenty-two times out of the ninety
four mounts. Nlcol Is his closest rival,
his record being twenty-eight times.
Phillips rode most of his winners In
the early part of the meetlrife. Just
now Nicol is the fashionable Jockey
and stands best In public esteem.
The riding of Willie Davis since he
left the employ of W. B. Jennings lias
been far above par. He has succeeded
In getting mounts that had a chance
and he rode them to win every time.
One day he rode four winners In a
row and finished up the day with two
seconds. Since then he ' has kept up
the good work and has been astride of
one or more winner* every day.
He is ;' now far in i the lead of the

other jockeys at Emeryville and if he
continues to ride as he has for the
last week or ten days, he is sure to
finish the season as the leading jockey.
He has a good pair of hands and a
sensible head as well as being a good
Judge of pace. Bettors are beginning
to realize this and play his mounts.
Just as Davis' work at Oakland has
been good, so has Hildebrand's riding
been bad at Ascot Park. The- star
jockey was badly shaken up and hurt
a short time ago and since then he
seems to have lost some of his courage.
He made his reputation through his
daredevil spirit. He was always. will-
Ing to take a chance and because of
this he landed many winners.
Peanuts Hildebrand ended the year
of 1904 with something over 300 winners
and broke all existing records for the
number of winning mounts In one year.
There have been other jockeys who
have been rated as America's best,
but they have not attained the popular
ity and fame of Hildebrand. This boy
is classed with such riders as Tod
Sloan, Fred Taral, Snapper Garrison
and others famous in turf history
whose fame lives after them.
There is no more complete compen
dium of racing information obtainable
than the American Sporting Manual,
edited by Frank H. Brunell and pub
lished by the Daily Racing Form Pub
lishing company at 124 Fifth avenue,
Chicago, 111. The edition for 1905 will
be ready for distribution by January 15.
It contains a table of the American
racing records, tables of the best time
made over every race track In the
country, lists of the winners, second
and third horses, together with the
time and value of all the prominent
stakes since their first running, many
of them back into the '60s; records of
the winners of the ancient and noted
stakes in England, Including the Derby
and Oaks: speed of the various race
tracks; five s tables for handicapping
and Instructions as to their use; a
table of bookmaking percentage; the
scales of weights In use by the jockey
clubs; a list of the great equine win
ners; the leading sires of their respect
ive years; the champion Jockeys for s the
past ten years; the racing statistics of
1904, Including winning owners, horses
and jockeys, with amounts and per
centages; general harness records; a
record of the pugllistta contests of
1904, a list of the champions from 1719,
m record of remarkable contests and
the rules governing pugilism; the bil
liard records and other matter's con
cerning which sporting men are con
stantly making inquiry.
The American Sporting Manual is the
handiest volume a racing or sporting
man can have about him when an ar
gument arises. It is an authority. Sub
stantially bound it can be had for the
small sum of 30 cents.

Condon Defeats Sad Bam
In the Last Race '
Bp«cim to Th- Herald.
SAN FHANOIBCO, Jan. 11.— Despite
the muddy track, the talent picked the
winners today until the sixth rate
which was won by \V. 11. Condon.
Sad Bam was the favorite but the go-
Ing was not to his liking. Besides
this the speedy three year old, David
Roland, ran his eye out the first half
mile. Both leaders stopped badly in
the last part, where Condon came up
and won easily from Squire Johnson,
with San Nicholas and Ishlana close
Tony Ilnrrelt scored another win with
Barrack in the fifth race, who won
going away from his field.
Sir Wilfred scored his third succes
sive win and Is easily the host of the
babies who have sported colors so far
In the third race Chandler on Edu
cate came dangerously close to beat
ing Mino. Chandler claimed a foul for
crowding but it was not allowed. Bom
bardier hdd an easy task in capturing
the $1000 handicap, Nlgrette quitting
after six furlongs of the event. The
going was not to the liking of Major
Manslr, who made a poor showing.

RHEUMATISM comes from poor digestion, stomach troubles, torpid liver, weak kidneys and a general
sluegish condition of the system. Food souring in the stomach poeons the blood-it becomes too acid. - The
liver and kidneys fail to act properly, and the circulation is clogged with impure matter and burning acrid fluids
which penetrate and saturate the bones and muscles, joints and nerves producing the terrible pains and aches and
other disagreeable symptoms of Rheumatism.. As it originates in the blood and affects the whole system, it will not
_ . -s <jo to depend on liniments and other external remedies. Such treatment is help-
Jjflfflßjfc' jlSßlfc ful, but the blood must be restored to a pure, healthy state before the cure is per-
B^**^* ifflr **1H W^~^ ma'nent. When S. S. S. has driven out the impurities and built up the thin, acrid
TWaHSfa blood and stimulated the sluggish organs to better action, the cure is thorough and
W^^Sa w**"^Bb fcw^MH lasting. The feverish, excited nerves then are soothed and the muscles relieved of
DteiLiny BJfcMggJP KlS«W|ip the torturing tension, and the whole system is restored to its former healthy state.
