Witli the Kentucky Handicap a
jmatter of history, the attention, of
western turfmen is now turning to
the Latonia Derby, which great $15,
000 race for three-year-olds is to run
at "Fair Latonia") on Saturday,
This will be the third and last of
the three outstanding events of Ken
tucky spring racing. And it will by
no means be the last.
The star three-year-olds of the sea
son will be tried by this race, with
its stamina testing distance of one
mile and one-half, as in no other
contest in which they will engage
during the whole season., It is com
ing to be recognized that the Lato
nia Derby is in a class by itself as a
contest for three-year-olds and each
passing year finds the owners of high
class three-year-olds more and more
desirous of winning this classic of
the western turf.
For this year's running of the La
tonia Derby, there are sixty-eight
eligibles, including ttie cream of the
good three-year-olds that have been
prominance. Two weeks in advance of
Among the candidates for this race,
which has been run uninterruptedly
since 1883, are such stars of the turf
as Kenneth. Alexander's Escoba,
George J. Long's Freecutter, Gallaher
Bros.' Sewell Combs, Willis Sharpe
Kilmer's Exterminator and Sun Bri
ar, G. W. Loft's Papp, T. C. McDow
ell's American Eagle, Wm. Martin's
Sunny Slope, Andrew Miller's Re
count, John W. Clark's James T.
Clark and others of scarcely less
proinence. Two weeks in advance of
the running of this great race it cer
tainly looks as though it will fur
nish a notable contest and perhaps
as notable a struggle as has been in
all the history of this big event of
the Western turf.
NEW RULING MADE ON THE USE
ADVANCED PASSENGER RATES
CINCINNATI, OHIO, June 13.
Promptly at midnight, Sunday, ticket
sellers at the Grand Central and
Pennsylvania Railroad depots began
selling passenger tickets at the ad
vanced rate of three cents a mile, in
keeping with the recent order of Di
rector General of Railroads W. G.
For the past few days, tickets to
distant points have been sold in ex
ceptionally large numbers by city
prompt and Courteous Attention
HOT AND COLD BATHS.
Don't Fail To Attend The
Millinery and Shoes
Watch For The
ticket offices of Cincinnati initial
lines and at the depot offices. Ap
parently, a great many Cincinnatians
were hurrying to take advantage of
the old rates and through travel was
reported as being heavy in all sec
tions of the country.
Ticket sellers early Monday morn
ing reported two or three persons who
remonstrated at the increased fares
charged but said that most travelers
understood about the new prices and
paid the extra money with a grin, ad
ding they hoped that it would help
win the war.
According to the ticket sellers, the
public seemed to consider the advance
in prices as quite the proper thing
and the only comment was in the
way of cheerful pleasantries. One
woman purchaser said she hoped the
extra money would go to the fighting
marines, because they were doing
such wonderful work in France.
General Passenger Agent D. M.
Bowman, of the Big Four, and Chair
man of the joint city ticket office
committee in Cincinnati, said Sunday
night that there was no estimating
the effect the advanced rates would
have on travel.
"We simply have no precedent to
go by, and, apparently, the only way
arp ran find out the effects of the ad-
'vance will be through actual expert
iience. rassenger men nave taucea
jwith a great many people who say
I they are going to take their vacations
ithis vear. but. of course, there are
a great many people passenger men
do not see and talk with. I really do
not know how to give any estimate,
approximate or othewise, and it is
generally agreed that any specula
tion along that line right now would
be mere guess work."
Passengers who were en route last
night on tickets purchased at the old
rates were allowed to finish their
journey without paying any excess
fare, but this prevented any stop
over privileges. Return trip tickets
sold at the old rates were also honor
ed, as these tickets were sold accord
ing to the passenger tariff rates in
effect at the time oi purcnase. wnne
mileage tickets were not honored, un
used mileage will be redeemed.
Rates for iPullman sleepers and
chair cars were advanced and Pull
man representatives, like passenger
officials, said they could not estimate
what the effect would be on future
Ticket office receipts will be watch
ed with great interest for the next
f pw weeks. While there are some who

vanced fares, the great majority are

of money and will continue to take
'their vacations as usual and that the
revenues of Uncle Sam will be great
ly increased. These passenger men
'are of the opinion that if the Gov
ernment wants to curtail passenger
travel far more radical measures will
be required than the mere advancing
of rates a fraction of a cent a mile.

trator for Bourbon county, three
pounds of sugar a month for each

latest declaration of the National

it is expected will be strictly adher

more stringent than the previous, one,

LOOK OUT FOR POISON IVY NOW
This is the season of the year
when the presence of poison ivy is
very apparent in the city and county.
Several cases of ivy poisoning have
been heard of in the city. The poison
ivy leaf is an inoffensive, harmless
looking thing, but woe betide the un
lucky individual who comes in con
tact with it.
The danger from poison ivy vines,
which have been found growing in
various sections of the city and
county, and which have caused con
siderable inconvenience to persons
will prove to be slight if the proper
precaution is observed don't touch

Black powder mixed in cream is also
a cure, as is sugar of lead.

WHAT IF THIS SHOULD HAPPEN
Wheat flour was issued by S. D.
Hanley, local food administrator, on
a physician's prescription, at Dallas,
Texas, last week. Texas for the last
two months voluntarily has foregone
the use of any wheat. Hanley re
ceived a letter from a physician ask
ing him to permit the sale of flour
to a patient with pernicious anae
mia for whom the flour was needed.
