Park Is Beautified
The park has 1 been • beautified under
the active direction of Capt. UlasH and
presents a decided change for the bet
ter as compared with last season.
Flowers are to be seen in almost
every direction. The walks and drive
ways have been banked with nature's
sweet-scented beauties and the open
spaces between the fences surrounding
the grandstand and paddock have been
ridded of their barren appearances and
are now green with a coat of Ken
tucky's bluest blue grass.
The paint brush has not been spared,
either, and all the buildings have been
polished with thorough coatings of
lead and oil until they resemble new
structures. Even the chairs In the

the busiest man In Southern California
during the pust two weeks and only
yesterday could he announce the com

the opening of the season. Everything
Is in readiness and all the officials
are expected to arrive before tomorrow
Eighteen races are carded for the
three days' program for this week. This
Includes two stakes, the Jonathan club
handicap, to be run on opening day,
and the Santa Catallna selling stakes,
to be run Saturday.
The first race of . the meeting will be
a sprint for three-year-olds and up
ward for a $100 purse. The weights
for this race will be five pounds be
low the scale, with allowances to non
winners of a race of $1500 since July
1 and non-winners of a race of $300
value in 1905.
Jonathan Club Handicap
The Jonathan club handicap, the
first of the season's stakes to be run,
will be the fourth race of the opening
day. It 1s a handicap sweepstakes for
two-year-olds and upwards, with $1250
AVelghts are to be announced tomor
row and the only penalty affixed is
five pounds for winning other than
selling purses after the weights are
announced. This, practically, means
that the anouncement of weights will
be pounds which the candidates will
carry in the stake, as all the con
tenders are either now on the grounds
or on the road to Ascot and will have
no opportunity of incurring the pen
High Chancellor, which probably
would have shared favoritism with
Eugenic Burch in this event, may not
be a starter, owning to an accident
which befell the great bay of the Bon
sack stable at Emeryville in his last
race at the northern track and which
Is expected to keep him in the hos
pital for some time. The Bonsack
stable Is on the road to Los Angeles
and the extent of the Injury will not
be known until its arrival.
Eugenia Burch, which is regarded as
one of the best horses which will race
at Ascot this season,' has been stabled
at the track for several days and is
showing excellent form in the morning
workouts. This means that the east
ern crack will go to the post as the
favorite for the opening stake.
Jocund is another entry in this
stake which probably will be declared
out of the stake. This crack runner
is at Bennings and will not be shipped
to Ascot until after the eastern meet
Bill Curtis is being schooled over the
jumps and will hardly start. Israelite
is another doubtful starter and it Is
doubtful whether Barney Schrieber will
have Deutschland here for this stake.
The Santa Catalina selling stakes Is
the second stake on the card for de
cision during the week and is also for
two-year-olds and upwards and carries
$1000 added money. Weights in this
event are governed by the selling
price named by the owner at the time
of making the entry.
Ninety-seven nominations have been
made for this stake, which Is at seven
furlongs distance, and starters will bo
announced by the owners on the day
before the race.

will ride for the stable. His favorite
among the McCarthy horses is Wye

better efforts from this goorl runner
than can any other rider. McCarthy

airbrake he submitted It to Commo

office and permitted to explain his mis

mall. Occasionally Mr. Vunderbllt ut
tered a grunt merely to dignify that he
was listening to the enthusiastic re
cital. When the Inventor paused Van
derbllt was reudy with his decision.

LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER s6, 190s.
HIGH CLASS PERFORMERS IN
Closing Day's Card for Harness Meet
Is Best of the Fall Session's
Offering at Agricultural
The fall meeting of the Los Angeles
Harness Horse association came to a
close yesterday afternoon after five of
the best events of the meeting hail
been decided and It is announced that
the session was the most successful
In the history of the association.
Grand circuit performers held the
feature events of the card, if any one
of the races could be called a feature
over the others, and the contests were
of a class seldom witnessed elsewhere
than on the grand circuit.
Hazel Patch, Zolock and Dedalion
met In a free-for-all race and, al
though the majority of the spectators
picked the race 1-2-3, the heats ex
cited great interest and enthusiasm.
As was expected, Hazel Patch won
in straight heats. Zolock took second
money and Dedalion, which outfooted
the coast stallion in the final heat for
second place, was third.
Patch invariably set the pace and
was never headed in the circuit of the
course. In the first heat the three
pacers became bunched at the three
quarters pole, but Patch breezed on the
course easily and was strong enough
at- the finish to .win by a full head
In the second heat Patch repeated
the performance, passing the Judges'
stand two lengths ahead of Zolock,
which was an eo.ua 1 distance in front
Dedalion went out in the third heat
and chased the pacemaker, and Zo
lock dropped out of the contention at
the three-quarter pole, allowing De
dalion to fight it out with Patch,
which won by three lengths.
The three meetings of Patch and
Zolock have served to demonstrate the
superior speed of the eastern horse,
although track conditions In all the
heats between them have been such
that any approach to the track or coast
records was Impossible.
Another event which excited much
interest was the 2:09 trot. Jupiter B
was scratched out of this event and
John Caldwell, from the stable of J.
C. Klrkpatrlek and holding a record of
2:09 made on the grand circuit, and
Helen Norte, belonping to Judge Hen
ry C. Brents and holding a grand clr
suit record of 2:09 1-4, were left to
fight it out.
Helen Norte. with a grand burst of
speed, took the lead at the eighth pole
and made the pace throughout the
first heat. With a gap of one full
length to the good, she seemed a cer
tain winner until she broke at the 1
last sixteenth and John Caldwell got
The second heat was a great contesf,
with both trotters fighting it out j
through the stretch to the wire, Cald
well winning by a nod. In the third i
heat Norte took the lead and held it
to the quarter pole, where she broke
and Caldwell passed her. In attempt
ing to make up lost ground, Norte
broke iigaln at the seven-eighths pole
and Caldwell breezed home four
These heats, until spoiled by Norte 8
breaking tactics, were grand contests
and the audience was on Its feet to
witness the nose finishes in the first
two trials. The trotters raced true to;
form until the breaks and good time
was made In two heats.
A coast record was shattered In the
fifth race, when Briney X, owned by
W. H. Berry, and driven by R. A.
Smith, trotted a mile to a wagon in
2:15 In his one effort at beating 2:20.
This is the best time for a mile ever
trotted to a wagon on the coast tracks.
The 2:40 trot was the greatest race
ever witnessed in Los Angeles. Three
entries went to the post in the first
heat and Sona took an early lead,
which she increased with every stride
until Hhe passed under the wire a win
ner. Immediately lifter the start the
nice took on the appearance of a pro
cessional breeze and great gaps wern
sonn separating the contestants.
California Poppy was In an unkind
mood and refused to move out of a
jog, being distanced in the first heat.
It was Jokingly intimated by a spec
tator that Poppy misunderstood the
conditions of the race and therefore
refused to finish ahead of the two min
utes and forty seconds limit.
As Poppy heroically struggled with
herself and refused to heed the cluck
ing of her driver, 11. H. Oarhmd, she
was greeted with an . ovation greater
than that given to Zolock when he won
the first heat against Hazel Patch last
Thursday. After a grand effort Poppy
passed the Judges' stand without Bet
ting a dangerous mark against her fu
ture performances, regardless of the
delay occasioned by her leisurely move
Gen. Boode spoiled all his chances of
winning by repeatedly losing his stride
and breaking. The name performance,
repeated six times during the second
iiiiit, .spoiled the race and made it an
eiiHy win for Sona.
Sona made the circuit In good time
In each heat and was trying through
out to go at her best clip, regardless
of the wulkover, practically, which she
The first race of the afternoon was
the deciding heat in the unfinished
2:27 pace from Friday and the pop
ular choice, Victor Platte, after trail
ing the field half the distance, came
strong In the atretch and won ' from
The Grandstand and Paddock at Asco t Park
Jennie A, the pacemaker, by a head.
Jennie A and J. A. C. got away In
front and pumped themselves out, hav
ing: nothing left for the finish. Platte,
although last until the three-quarters
pole was reached, made a leisurely run
to the stretch and when the time ar
rived for him to make his bid for first
money, he had everything In the speed
line and was fresh enough to withstand
the gruelling rnce In the final eighth.
The attendance yesterday wna equal
to the record made Thursday, when
thousands turned out to witness the
I contest between Hazel Patch and Zo
lock. And It was a reluctant audience
which arose and filed out of the grand
stand after the final heat in the 2:10
trot, which ended the day's program
and the meeting.
The Infield was again crowded with
vehicles and the occupants witnessed
the contests from their points of vant
age In the bluegrass enclosure.
Immediately before the races began
a huge bouquet was sent to the judges'
stand and almost precipitated a riot
among the crowned heads of the asso
ciation until it was ascertained that
the donors, Mrs. C. A. Canfield and
Mrs. Henry Berry, dedicated the flow
ers to all without preference or partial

WEBFOOTERS EVEN UP ALL
Toren, Goodwin and Baum Unable to
Head Off Northerners, Who Bat
Like Fiends and Score
The webfooted aggregation from
Portland evened up all the old scores
they ever had against the Angels in
yesterday's game and the drubbing ad
ministered to the pennant chasers
caused the latter to resemble a prize
winning bunch of amateurs.
Sixteen hits were turned into fifteen
runs and Toren, Goodwin and Baum
were experiencing an off day and
couldn't keep the ball out of reach of
the 42-inch ash sticks from the Port
land bat bag.
Jones was also slugged until he was
half Inclined to hand In his resigna
tion, but this did not mean runs every
time for the Angels, and when Umpire
J. Ira "Slats" Davis announced the
end of the game the locals had one
run less than half as many as did their
The game was an exemplification of
how bad It could be played if an effort
should be made as a test. In this re
gard It was a record-breaker, as well
as a heartbreaker. Every form of play
and misplay in the base ball dictionary
was given a demonstration in the nine
innings, and the game will probably
be recorded in history as the only
one of its kind.
The score is sufficiently disgraceful
without elaboration and Is given in
full detail herewith:

FINDS MARK TWAIN QUEER
An Englishman Who Mistook the
Humorist's Book for a Guide
New Orleans Tlmos-Democrat.
"Coming over," said the noted Eng
lishman, "I discovered a most remark
able thing in one of your guidebooks.
The keener of the stn.ll recommended
It highly. It was called 'Idle Excur
sions of an Idle Fellow,' or something
of that sort, you know. It reminded
me of our own Jerome, you know. It
was the effort of one of your Ameri
cans, though. I think his name was
Clarence or Samuel Clemens. He had
a pen name, too, of Ilnlnes or Plains,
with the queer word of 'Mark' before
it. I did not notice particularly. But
what has amused me was his manner
of writing. He says In this odd book
of his some queer ■ things— some ex
ceedingly queer things. At right, I
cannot understand them. If you will
be so good I will read to you this most
peculiar book— thank you." The wnlter
and bellboy came back with a dozen
books. After a little trouble the Eng
lish visitor found Mark Twain's rem
iniscences of an excursion and read
aloud this most "remarkable" para
graph. It went something like this:
"This is a fine place for a vacation.
The Bermudans are hoping soon to
have telegraphic communication with
the world. But even after they shall
hnve acquired this curse It will still
te a good country to go to for a vaca
tion. For there are charming little
islets scattered about the enclosed sea,
where one could live secure from Intru
sion. The telegraph boy would have
to come in a boat and one could easily
kill him while he was making his land-
Ing." "I wish to find some explana
tion of this," continued the English
man. "I know some years ago your
principal diversions were killing In
dians and buffaloes. But I had under
stood that all this was gone, and why
should a man sit beneath his own hatch
and pot a fellow — a mere boy from the
telegraph post— while he was trying to
moor his dinghey? None of , you seems
able to answer. Yet you Americans

He Needed the Money
When a now famous specialist began
the practice of medicine as a young
man he numbered among his first
patients a certain Mr. Darlie of Woon

physician treated his patient success

One day the doctor called to Inquire
after his patient's progress. Although
assured that the latter was enjoying
health he had never known before, he
at once assumed an air of the greatest
concern and advised a speedy operation.
"But," said the astonished convales
cent In broadest Scotch, "Dinna ye tell
me yoursel' an operation wasna neces

year gone, an' wha' d'ye want to cut

The physician hesitated a moment,

Tears, Idle Tears
Mrs. T. De Witt Ta,lmage, at a tea
which she gave In Washington in Mrs.
Fairbanks, honor, said of a little girl:
"She Is a remarkable little girl. Her
mind is so original that I think she
will grow up to be a genius. The other
afternoon, awakening from her nap, she
called her mother to her.
" 'Mamma,' she said, 'what was I
crying about before I went to sleep?'
"Her mother smiled.
"You were crying, my dear,' she an
swered, 'because I wouldn't let you
have your father's watch to play with.'

Special Cable to The Herald.
LONDON, Nov. 25.— Lord Dunboyne,
the king's remembrancer and senior
master of the king's bench, has re

of the king's bench since 1874.
The duties of the king's remem

onerous. If he attends the law court*
for the pricking of the sheriffs, acknowl
edges homage from the holders of
crown lands and Is present at the
swearing-in of the lord mayor he na.»
done nearly all that Is asked of him.

A Profitable Investment
A Few Words In Defense of
Race Track Speculation
Most people assume that it is morally
wrong to speculate, that is on the result
of a future event, and the cause of this
nrises from the fact that the assumption
has been generally accepted by multitudes
of people who put up a fence between
sport and trade. In their opinion It Is
wrong to risk money on results of the
former but perfectly right to do so on
the latter. Now this is not true. Dealing
in real estate is looked upon as an ex-
ceedingly solid and respectable business.
Yet speculation is the very life and soul
of the trade. What is more common than
for a man to take option on a lot or sev-
eral lots, with a certain time limit? What
is that but a wager? The owner practic-
ally bets that the property will not ad-
vance in price, while the holder of the
option bets that It will. These men are
simply betting on the correctness of their
judgment. Just as a horseman bets on
his capacity to pick out the best horse in
the race, and both transactions are equal-
ly moral. It is abuse- of speculation, not
its use, which is wrong. To illustrate this:
We will say that a man settles In a
Rtrange locality and commences to invest
In reil estate with absolutely no knowl-
edge of its value, and does so upon the
advice of those who have it for sale.
When the bubble bursts he will find him-
self a bankrupt, and tho same will befall
an inexperienced person who goes to tho
race track to speculate. I truthfully be-
lieve that the American turf of today
affords one of the best fields for specula-
tion. What I mean by this is careful,
shrewd and eonservatlvo speculation. But
an inexperienced person has no more
chance of making money on a race track
than a blacksmith has of filling a watch-
maker's position. I have been connected
with the turf for a number of years and
know from experience that this is true.
Today, though, is the day of systems,
and all successful business is conducted
by the use of some Bystem. A few years
ago such a thing as a system was un-
heard of on the race track, but they have
finally found their way there and have
como to stay.
It was only last spring that the book-
makers on the eastern tracks began to
realize that there was a leak some place
and that they were having their- per-
centage taken away from them, and
aftor figuring Industriously for a few days
they concluded that it was the system
players that were making the inroads
Into, their bank rolls.
After several years of study, and after
blending the ideas of somo of the most
successful turf experts with those of my
own, I have completed a system by ths
use of which a person with a limited
amount of capital can win from $10.00 to
$15.00 per day. Experience is not neces-
sary, though it always proves beneficial.
I want to place this system in the hands
of not more than 20 or 30 parties to op-
erate during tho rece meeting here, and
I wish to do this on a percentage basis.
I have nothing to sell and I do not handln
commissions. Those that wish to co-
onerato with me will find it very profit-
able to them, and I would be very glad
to give them further information at any
