IN THE RACE
TO REACH THE
The tanbark ring was laid in front/ of
the clubhouse, the spacious verandas' of
which furnished a coign of. vantage from
which the interesting competition could be |
viewed.. The ring was in the form of an |
overgrown "8." The two. -circles were
beds of green lawn, which made a pleas-
Ing contrast with the dull red of the tan- i
bark. A tastefully decorated stand on the
opposite side of the ring from the club
house provided an excellent viewpoint
for the people of the countryside. During
the afternoon there was a large attend
ance of spectators, who came in all man
ner of conveyances, from an Irish jaunt
ing car to a puffing automobile.
Competition was keen in man v of the
classes. The most, exciting was'that for
the best high-stepper in the show. Two
old rivals. Walter Hobart's horse Para
gon, driven by his owner, and George A.
Pope's Sweetheart, which have been com
peting against the other since 1893, were
again brought together. E. D. Beyland
and ,W, Mayo Newhall looked the" class
over long and critically. They were un
able to agree as to the disposition of the
blue ribbon and finally called F. S. Moody
to their assistance. Walter; Hobarf car
ried off the blue ribbon triumphantly and
also a silver cup, which went with it.
BJRLINGAME Country Club
never presented a' more animat
ed appearance nor a more pleas
ing one than It did yesterday on
the occasion of the third annual
open-air horse show held under
the patronage of the club. .
The jumping competition was the last
on the day's programme. It was the best
ever seen at a show here, although ' the
entry was small. The principal event nar
rowed down to a match between Walter
Hcbart and John Lawson. The former
rode his once great horse Royalty, which
shows signs of his advancing i'ears. John
Lswson rode Vanity, a slashing big thor
oughbred, which raced over the'jumps in
the colors of Edward Corrigan some years
since. After being sent over the
small jumps the judges were unable 10
decide between the two horses, and Mr.
Lawson Suggested a high jump. The bar
was put at about five feet. On the third
attempt Loyalty cleared it. Vanity was
not so fortunate, knocking the bar down
Each lady received a blue ribbon. It
required no straining of gallantry on the
part' of the judged to make so obviously
deserving an award.
An * interesting feature of the competi
tion during the day was the appearance
of a number of ladies as amateur
"whips." Miss Maud Bourn, Miss Taylor,
Miss Florence Whittell, Mrs. H. T. Scott
and Miss Graham were among those who
Ehowed their ability in the ring.
A. P. Welch's Nip was placed . second ;
Walter S. Martin's Baron third. Sweet
heart was. unplaced. 'This, was pronounc
ed a wonderful class, the opinion being
freely expressed that it could not be beat
en outside the New York show. , V; ;.•

ant at each essay. Dolly Gray took third
money. Mutuels on the winner paid $2 80
in each heat.
CICERO . A CLOSE SECOND.
Some zigzag piloting on the part of J.
Doran lost the first heat of the 2:30 class
event for Dan Alden, the well-played sec
ond choice. After leading from the word
almost, Alden swerved under punishment
the last thirty yards, colliding with Vel
ma, driven by H. W. Miller. Although
Dan Alden won by a head j the Judges
could do nothing but award the r heat to
Velma. Reinsman Miller's bike" went
down after the finish, throwing him out,
and the pacer ran away a half-mile be
fore being caught. Mutuels on this heat
paid 19 35. Elchora Wilkes, the favorite,
after two or three losing breaks finished
third. Velma displayed good staying
qualities by drawing away from the trot
ter Clara L in the second heat and dis
posing easily of Elchora Wilkes in the
next heat in 2:26%. Mutuels paid $3 90.
Only four scored for the word in the
opening 2:40 class number, and Lady Lar
sen. over which Ed Aigeltinger held the
ribbons, -was touted as "the merchan
dise.". Dr.. A. McLaughlin behind the
"wiggler" Bondy C couldn't see It in that
light, going out and winning in straight
heats. Time— 2:31%, 2:39%. Mutuels on the
two heats paid, respectively. J9 65 and
$6 05. In the first heat Lady Larson lost
the place to Cuba, but filmed the tables

The matinee racing given under the
auspices of the Golden Gate Park Driving
Association at Emeryville track yesterday
\*as liberally patronized by admirers of
the light harness horse, an unusually
large number of Jadics in hoiiday attire
gracing the occasion With their presence.
The sport was excellent,' with no "chop
ping" of heats being indulged in what
ever. Bondy C first for the 2:40 class race,
and Velma, winner of the 2:30 class event,
furnished the surprises, while later on Al
Bandy and Sable La Grand sent the fa
vorite players home on velvet.
For those who wished to speculate an
auction box and a Paris mutuel machine
dispensing $2 tickets, conducted under tbe
supervision of Harry Corbett, kept opea

pleadings of Auctioneer George Tuthill

Business was a trifle <JulI until the free
for-all - event, last on the card, slipped
around. It went to Sable La Grand in
straight heats, driven by the veteran Dan
Misner, with startling scenic effects by
Charles E. Parks, the "old hoes" of the
driving division, behind his toppy side
wheeler Imp. Sable La Grand ruled fa
vorite and took the first heat -in a head
finish from Mack, driven by M. M. Don
nelly. Mutuels paid $5. Imp had the red
flag Sashed til his face, and resented the
¦distance judge's action by trying to run
away ihe reverse way of the track with
Driver Parks. Just when It looked as if
the latter was booked for a most uneven
\ and lumpy ride Marshal Dalziel mounted
his saddle horse and succeeded in pulling
up the fractious pacer. After the usual
cooling-out pause Sable La Grand again
downed Mack in a whipping finish by a
half-length . for the second heat in 2:Z5\%.
Mutuels paid $3 2». The result caused a
mild mix-up among the backers of Mack,
who apparently thought that horse could
do better, tut beyond four or five vicious
swings, only one of which connected, no
fatalities were chronicled.

Jockeys Seriously Injured in
a Fall at the Gravesend
Track in Bedford Stakes
CHICAGO. May 30.— The grand stand at
Hawthorne race track. was destroyed by
fire this evening, half an hour after the
last race of the day had been run. Nearly
every one but the employes had left th©
track. The fire started in the cupola of
the main building and gradually worked
downward, giving ample time for savins
the horses in the paddocK. as well aa af
. fording an opportunity for the escape of
a few stragglers who occupied the stand. 1
One man was killed during the fire and 1
several'men were badly injured, although,
none of them will die. The man who was
killed was a hanger-on at the track and,
v.as fcnown as "Chicken Pete" Ru3h. He.
with some others, was watching the tire
fiom the roof of the, engine i >use, which,
unknown to them, was on.li... The root
suddenly caved in and Rusa was burned
to death. The other men saved them
selves by jumping. Before the fire was
under control the paddock and betting
ring were in ruins. The loss will exceed
$100 000. Seven days of the present meet
ing remain. Arrangements were made to
nlght with the Harlem racetrack offlciaia
whereby the rest of the Hawthorne pro
gramme, beginning to-morrow, will be
run at Harlem. . New buildings will Da
erected for the next meeting, which will
commence the latter part of July.

LONDON, May 30.— The hopes of the
Americans, which were 'raised to such a
hlgn pitch during, the first few prelimin
ary games played by Captain , Foxhall
Kecne's polo., team, are . Jlkely ; to be
dashed to-morrow, as In the opinion of
nearly j all the • polo experts, . both Ameri
can and English,* who have watched the
practice, the English team .Is sure to win
two but of three matches and retain* the
American challenge cup. It is . doubtful,
even, 1* playing at the top 'of their form,
the Americans will.be able* to defeat the
strong combination" which . the 'English
players have brought together*; .'but. in
addition to this fact, there, is not a mem
ber of the American, teams who is play
ing in hie best form, and; the Amer.can
ponies, as - well as the men. . seem to feel
the effects of this climate.'. . ...-. '¦¦-¦<< ¦-' <
• When the Americans began splaying
here they showed a dash ana vim which
thoroughly alarmed. the Englishmen and
the fear was freely expressed in the r-olo
pavilions at Hurlirsgham and Ranelagh
that the Americans would -win. The bet
ting at that time also favored the-Ameri
cans, but this is all changed and the
Englishmen are very confident. The bet
ting to-night ranges from 2 to 1 to 5 to 1
on the English team. .'--.. ' -
One great disadvantage which both the
American and the English selection.com
mittee has to contend with : is ¦ the ; vile
weather, which -left the. Americans shod
of practice and prevented ; , the English
players from being . selected at '. an early
date. The American team, which will
play to-morrow, la •" composed of " R: . L.
Agassiz, J..E. Cowdln, Foxhall Keene and
L Waterbury. The personnel of the Fng
llsn • team is as follows: Cecil Nickalls,
p ¦¦ W. .Nickalls. Walter H. Buckmastei
and Charles D. Miller. W.dEustis will
be umpire for the Americans and F,
Freakes for the Englishmen. Captain St,

1TEW SCIENTIFIC PROCESS.
A Preparation. Discovered That Will
Destroy the ' Dandruff Germ.
For. some "time It < has been knoWn that
dandruff Is caused by a germ that digs
tip the scalps Into little white flakes, and
by sapping the vitality .of the. hair at. the
root causes falling hair, and,, of course,
finally baldness. For years there have
been all kinds of hair' stimulants and
Ecalp tonics on the market, but there has
been no permanent cure for dandruff un-
til the discovery of. a preparation called
.Newbro's Herpicide,' which destroys the
Candruff germ. Destroy the' cause, the
effect will cease to exist. Kill the dan-
druff germ and you'll have no dandruff
no Itching scalp;, no falling hair. '
