HOESE RACING IS AH ANCIENT
How come that 50,000 people,
each braving the barbed elbows of
the other '49,999, gather on the
perspiring lawn at Latonia while a
band of sleek skinned, fire-orbed
thoroughbreds rushed madly abound
the beautiful curves of the Milldale
racing course? How come that
thousands of men and women in
East and West and North and
South wait anxiously for the first
tidings of that little mile and a quar
ter jaunt across the river from Cin
cinnati? How come that men yell
and women scream? How come that
fortunes disappear and instantly
arise elsewhere? How come that
newsboys bawl -and the headlines
shriek? How come?
There is that in the thoroughbred
that makes men do these things.
His is a power born of the primitive
instincts of our forefathers and old
as history itself. Apropos the Lato
nia Special and the thoroughbred,
says the Horse Association of Amer
ica: "Racing began thousands of years
before Christ among Arabians, to
determine the fleetest, strongest and
most enduring horses, the lives of
their owners often depending there
on. Race winners were used thous
ands of years ago as sires and this
steadily improved Arabian horses.
Later, the best Arab, Turk and Barb
stallions were taken to England and
crossed on the fleetest native run
ning mares. History shows that the
best of progeny was developed and
selected by racing. The standard of
admission to the Thoroughbred Stud
book was originally based solely on
performance on the turf. Only those
having a high standard of speed
strength and endurance were eligi
ble to record.
"Thoroughbred blood resulted
from continual racing and selection,
each generation showing slight im
provement over the foregoing. Three
hundred years of constant, selective
breeding of mares to the fleetest,
most enduring sires, gave the thor
oughbred breed extreme speed, cour
age, endurance and gameness, with
the result that the breed has been
used as fountain blood for other
breeds, namely, American standard
bred trotter and American saddle
"Thoroughbred blood is infused in
some measure into Hackney and
Morgan horses. Thoroughbred is
now the most used of any hot blood
ed breed for the improvement of
saddle, cavalry, hunting and polo
"Down through the ages the race
course has been a fiery crucible, in
which horses possessing the desired
qualities in the greatest measure are
separated from those less endowed.
Successive races are required to
demonstrate the staying quality and
endurance of horses.
"There are two things in the world
which will arrest the attention of all
men beautiful women and beauti
ful horses. All the world over men
watched with interest Saturday's
race because they have inherited
from .heir forefathers this instinct
to admire the endurance, gameness
and extraordinary speed of line

Sweeping regulations for public
ity of campaign contributions are
provided for in a bill introduced by
Chairman Andrews, of the House
Committee on Election of President,
Vice-President, and members of Con
gress. While the bill makes no attempt
to regulate primary expenditures in
view of the decision of the Supreme
Court in the Newberry case that
such regulation came within the
province of the States, it would
limit Expenditures by candidates for
the Senate to $10,000 and candi
dates for the House to $5,000, and
stipulate ,that no candidate shall
promise any man a political job in
exchange for his support.
The name of every person con
tributing $100 or more would be
The bill provides that reports
shall be made by the national com
mittees on all political parties, con

sociations or organizations of every
nature, kind and description for
whatever purpose created, organized
or incorporated, or any subsidiary
thereof, which shall in two or more
States influence the result or at
tempt to influence the result of an
election at which representatives in
Congress are to be elected."
What is regarded by advocates cf
the bill as a drastic provision pro
vides that every provision, firm, as
sociation, except political committees
as already provided for, that shall
expend or promise any sum of money
or any other thing of value amount
ing to $50 or more "for the purpose
of influencing or controlling in two
or more States the result of an elec
tion of a Senator or Representative
unless ho or she contribute the same
iu a political committee, snan me a
statement of the same under oath
with the clerk of the House cf Rep
resentatives." It was explained that this would
give publicity to individual contri

committees and would help to ac

rector of the bureau, who has just
finished tabulation of the work done
Some of these inspections were
made in every county in Kentucky

The kind of places inspected in

The Bureau of Pure Food and
Drugs will employ a third inspector

will permit great extension of its
usefulness to people of the State.
