I. Herod was bred by Mr.
Billiard, of Ussian, lowa, gut by King Herod, son
Black Hawk, by Hal's Black Hawk,
son of Sherman Morgan ; his dam was by Green
tain Boy, son of Hill's Black Hawk, by
rgan; 2d dam byGifford Morgan, son
or Woodbury Morgan. King Herod's dam was
by Hill's Black Hawk, son of Sherman Morgan;
2d dam by Revenge, son of Justin Morgan.
Sherman Black Hawk's dam was by Young Ham
bletonian, son of Harris' Hambletonian, 2d dam
by Matchem. This is one of the most conspicu
ous examples, as well as one os the best of in
ing that can be found. His trotting is the
very poetry of motion, a frictionless kind of gait
which always seems limitless. Even when
striding 04 feet, his way of jjoing seems as easy
as the play of the piston rod of a locomtive. He
it broken to harness until six years old.
The Larabies secured him by the force of circum
-. The horse lias on several occasions
ied horsemen by his wonderful
flights, but it is needless to instance more than
t these. Messrs. G. W. Garrett, E.
11. Smith and J. M. Shaffer testified under oath
tr. M. Shaffer drove Herod over the Mil
waukee, Wis., driving park course, on the 27th
of September, 1879, as follows: First quarter in
35*4 seconds, 2nd quarter in :;:; seconds, hair
mile in 1 :08}£. That his driver then slowed him
up, but could have trotted out the mile in 2:21).
To us win. have seen his marvellous nights,these"
o not strengthen our belief in Herod. We
have always contended, however, that the horse
always went into his races out of condition, but
even under such circumstances ho has done
rs. In his race at Milwaukee on the Bth
of June last, when both Kentucky Wilkes and
Euwin B. stood better than he in the race. Ile
rod was in no condition to trot against such
horses as those, and Sa'olc and Green Charley.
Nevertheless, he trotted the last half of the third
heat in 1:09, finishing second to V.'iikes in 2:25,
beating the fast mare Sable out or third money.
Late in the Bummer he was Bold to bis present own
ers, Larabie Bros., Deer Lodge, Montana, where
lie trotted a race or two last fall, As he, is now
to be used as a stock horse, it is. (jiiite properto

been forgotten, that of King Herod will live on
the written page and in his offspring, who have

Woodford WOkes.
Mr. Geo. W. Sherwood, of St. Paul, has made
a recent purchase of a stallion colt that will,
without doubt, prove of lasting and very great
value to the state of Minnesota. For a number
of years Mr. Sherwood has been gathering in his
stables marcs of excellent quality and breeding.
Ue has also had a number of good stallions, etUl
not one that just suited his taste, lie has there
fore been for some time looking about to find one
that, in his judgment, all things considered,
would he satisfactory. 11,- at last found what he
wanted in the two-year-old colt WoodfordWilke?.
The purchase was made at Glenview, where is
located the breeding establishment of Mr. J. C.
I'enan, on the 7th Inst. The colt is a handsome
brown, 15 hands 3 inches high, left hind ankle
white, foaled June 9, 1882; weighs 1.095. From
the above description of him it will be seen
that though a oil of but two years, he is a large
animal and will make a large and commanding
horse. lie is by George YTllkes, record 2:23,

Of this One colt Mr. McFarran says in his cat
alogue, "We believe we can say without exag
geration that, taking the size, style, substance,
finish, way of going and breeding, this is the
best colt Wilkes ever got, at least this is the
opinion of several good horsemen. The oppor
tunity to buy such a horse as this at auction, or
any other way, is once in a life time." The
price paid was $4,800 cash.
T.ane K. Stone's l'ure/ittse.
L. S. Follett, the popular banker and breeder
of Hastings, has sold to lion. Lane K. Stone, of
St. Paul, a tine carriage team, one of the best
that ever came into this city. The horses were
both sired by Jauesville llambletonian, he by
Milwaukee, and he by the Hero of Chester. The
dams of tlie horses are by Richard's Bellfounder,
and known in tliis city as the Morris Lampry
mares. The colts are blood bays with star in
forehead, are three years old this month, stand
lti>. hands, and are what might be termed a
line toppy colts, These colts, if a sample of
■lauesville's colts, place htm in the front rank as
a sire of line carriage houses. Price StiOO.
The. Midway Sale.
The Turf, Field nml Farm, in speaking of the
sale of trotters that is to take place at Midway
on the Hth of June, has the following:
The catalogue of the public sale of trotting
.-t.vie at Midway Park, on Wednesday, June 11,
contains sixty-nine animals, among them Silver
lon, who has a record of 2:20.^. lie will be
shown on the track, and should
bring a good price. Lady Humboldt,
the sister of Humboldt, 2:2 OKi, is in
foal by Blattwood, Jr., and she is recommended
for a brood mare. Naamah is wall bred for the
harem, being by George Wilkes, out of Hagar, by
Alexander's Abdallah. She is in foal by Black
wood, Jr. Hebe is in foal by the same horse.
She is fourteen years old and a daughter of Bel
mont and Haides, by Mambrino Chief. Jennie is
aba; tilly, two years old, by Yon Aruiiu, out of
Hebe, by Belmont, and she promises to make a
fast mare. This sale will scatter many valuable
animals over the northwest. '
VanderblWa Coat Off Flyers.
The announcement that a couple of W. n.
Vanderbilt's cast-off horses were to be sold at
auction, brought a crowd of aboni 500 to the
Cleveland track on the 6th, there being also sev
eral other animals with fast records to be disposed
of. The assemblage was an oininently 'horsey' one.
lis members leaned against the fence which sep
arated them from the homestretch, expectorated
tobacco juice vigorously, and never alluded to
an animal exhibited by any term except "That
there horse there."' The general topic of con.
versation was the ex-Vanderbuilt livers, and
there was a strong expression of unfavorable
opinion concerning a man who would allow horses
that had carried him safely and swiftly through
man; a brush down Harlem lane to be sold for a
mere song at public veudue when their days of
usefulness were over.
Lysander Boy, having a record of 2:20, and for
whom the millionaire paid §10,000 not many
years ago, was first offered. Just as he was led
out great excitement was cansed by the arrival
of a carriage from which descended Mr.
William Turnbull, Vanderbilt'a intimate friend,
Ca;it. Jake Vanderbilt, uncle of the rich man,
and a young man whose identity nobody seemed
able to fix. A thrill went through the crowd
when the names of the party were announced,
the general opinion being that Yanderbilt had
sent the delegation down to rescue at any cost
his pets from the ignominy of being sold at auc
tion. The distinguished trio seated themselves
about the center of the ampitheater, and the sale
of Lysauder Boy proceeded. Everybody waited
for the supposed Samaritans to bid, but they
spoke not, and in a few moments Lysander had
been purchased by Charles J. Clark, a Pittsburg
oil man, for Si,GOO,
Then Small Hopes, "the turf outlaw," was
brought out. This is the horse that Vanderbilt
nsed to swear by, and his sale was the event of
the day in point of general interest. He was a
beauty in his early days, but is now only
a knock-kneed reminiscence of the fleet steed
that hauled his late master a mile in 2:23. Mr.
Vanderbilt would surely not let him be sold. All
eyes were turned to the three men in the amphi
theater as Small Hopes was driven up and down
the track, making dispairing efforts to exhibit
some of his old time speed, but the gentlemen
from New York were unmoved. Mr. Turnbull
blinked solemnly at the sun; Capt. Jake eat even
mi.re elect than usual under his silk hat, and the
mysterious young man whistled "Mary Kelly's
Beau " with a display ot technique and fidelity to
detail that «:is astonishing. Somebody Etarted
the bidding \y.ith an offer of 5250, and by slow de
■;rcessi9o was reached, at which figure Small
Elopes became the property of E. Agur,a resident
ot Wilkesbarre, Pa.
As the auctioneer's hammer fell the Vandcr
bulll party rose to depart. Somebody remarked
that the old horse went pretty cheap, where
upon Capt. Jake remarked, with great golem
nity, "People ain't no darn fools;" and as the
party moved away the strains of "Mary Kelly's
Beau," as whistled by the mysterious young
man, lioated through the air like v rrquieln ami
dirge over the grave of Small Hopes.
'•if 1 had £200,000,000," said a man who was
chewing a straw, "I wouldn't let no old hoss of
mine end his days that way just to save S5UU.''
"Me neither," replied his Companion, and this
view seemed to be that of all present.
Small Holies has probably attained more notor
iety than any other horse in the country and this
notoriety was due to his participation in a cam
[iniu'ii of turf outlawry in the fall of 1575 which
resulted in the expulsion from all tracks belong
ing to the National Association of the horse and
those who managed him on his nibbing tour.
At that time Small Hopes was in his prime, be
ing <i years old. Himself and his owner, a man
named Deyo, residing in Michigan, had been sus
pended the previous season by the National Trot
ting association for some infraction of its rules,
and, sunn ling under the sting of this punish
ment, J)eyo resolved to start out with the horse
under an assumed name and trot him in races
Crom which his record of about 2:30 would bar
him. Deyo had at that time in his employ as
driver a reckless young fellow named Bill
McGuigan, and with the noted Charley Perkins,
of Rochester, N. V., they began a tour which
eventually resulted in the discovery of their
scheme and the expulsion of the entire party
from all tracks belonging to the National asso
ciation, small Hopes was at that time a remark
ably fast horse— capable, no doubt, of trotting a
mile In 2:15 or better—and the havoc which he
mad* in three-minutes races may be better im
agined than described. Horsemen at small west
ern meetings that Tall were astonished at
the ease with which an unknown brown
gelding captured every purse for which
he was entered, frequently distancing
the entire field. This horse was Small Hopes,
who was entered in race under various names,
being known as Laplald, Lothair, and West
brook. After trotting a number of races in the
West, in none of which his identity was discov
ered, he was shipped to Boston, and the tactics
which had been so successful in this part of the
country were repeated there. But by this time
suspicion had been arousd, and ou the horse be
ing forcibly taker, possession of by the track of
ficials, it was discovered that the lower part of
his hind 1< •_-.-. originally white, had been painted,
and when McGuigan saw that the game was up
he admitted that Lothair, Lapland, and West
brook were ti» « ■ tame horse ami that the real
name of the animal was Small Hopes. The ex
pulsion referred to above followed immediately,
but the wonderful speed shown by the horse in
duced Mr. Vanderbilt to pay a long price for
him, and in tlu tali of is;; he gave that gentle
man his ttrst reputation as a driver by being one
of a double team that drew him a mile over
the Floetwood Park track i:i B:33 —the fastest
previous record by a donble team haviuj;
been mora than two seconds slower.
At that time Mr. Vanderbilt was loud in his
praises of Small Hepeß, saying he was the best
horse he had ever situ or owned, and it was
gi oerally understood that no matter what
vicissitudes might overtake the millionaire
nothing would induce him to part with his fa
vorite road-horse. But by continual banging
round on the roads of New York Small Hopes
became somewhat infirm, and this,with increased
age, rendered his value less every year, nntH
last -,:i~..!i Mr. Vanderbilt sold him fur a mere
,:!:.■• ... '■■.:. Hulbort, a millionaire railroad opera
tor or this city, who was fond of a good horse.
People who had commented on Vanderbilt's lack
i>f affection for small Hopes was gratified to see
the old horse pass into tue hands of a man who
would Bee that his last days were made pleas
ant. But when Mr. Hnlbert died a month or so
ago. his widow decided to dispose of all of his
trotting stock,and among the lot was StnallHopes,
who thus came to be offered at a public auction
to-day.
Goldsmith Maid.
Turf, Field and Farm: On Sunday last, at
Fashion Stud Farm, Mr. 11. L. Donsman saw
Goldsmith Maid for the first time. The ex-queen
of the trotting turf was enjoying the sunshine
a nd the freedom of a paddock, and she was as
coy as a school girl when sftange hands attempted
to caress her. She even playfully laid back her
ear? and kicked up her heels when her owner.
Mr. H. P. Smith, tried to take her by the short
foretop. Mr. Doosman was surprised to see the
old mare so well preserved and bubbling over
with life. It is thought that she is again in foal.
In another paddock Gen. Knox was found dainti
ly chewing tlie eighteen Inch green-cut rye
grown on the farm this spring. The stallion
looked to the visitor just what he is. a horse
ot good bone and ragged constitution. His teeth
are hadly worn, and it is necessary to supply him
with soft food, but otherwise he is able to shift
for himself. Mr. Donsman thinks of bunding a
manure pit at Artesian Stock farm, somethFn T
like the one at Fashion Stud farm. It is water
tight and ha? a capacity for 500.0'J0 tons. The
liquid is drawn out upon the fields in large sprink
ler* and it has a magical effect upon the land.
The soil, which a few years ago was considered

non-productive, is row asf ich as garden mold.
The clover is well advancod aud the rye is nearly
two feet high.

AMUSEMENTS.
Monte Cristo at the Grand.
Commencing this evening the Stetson
company open tbeir return engagement at
the Grand in the splendid drama "Monte
Cristo," being an adaptation from Dumas'
wonderful and brilliant novel of that name.
The drama has been given in St. Paul be
fore by the same magnificent east, and the
return of the company is anticipated with
pleasure.
The company ' '.recently performed in
Omaha, and a writer in the Republican speaks
of the drama as follows :
"Without doubt tho magnificent company
tbat presented Dumas' drama, "Monte
Cristo," at Boyd's opera house last night was
the finest dramatic company ever seen
here. It numbers among its members the
names of at least a half dozen actors that
have been familiar to the public in different
roles for a long time, and they were cast so
intelligently last night as to form a peerless
whole. So excellently was the individual
work of each actor performed that it would
be almost useless to institute comparison or
criticism. That their work was appreciated
was abundantly manifested by the frequent
applause bestowed by the audience. The
leading actors were repeatedly called before
the curtain, and co loud was the applause at
the end of the magnificent climax in the
fourth act, that six of the members of the
company filed out before the footlights and
bowed their acknowledgments.
Dumas' novel has a strong dramatic in
terest, in addition to picturesque detail, for
a wonderful truth of local coloring. The
story has undergone sundry cuttings and
mutations in its transference" from the book
to the stage. It has lost in the quir-tir
senses, but it has gained by the more prom
inent relief into which the personages are
thrown, the lite thrown into the antipathies
and hatred, and the more vivid play of the
passions. The play could not include one
tenth of the kaleidoscopic feature of the book
from whence it was derived, and as it is now,
it is very difficult to lollow, but it is none
the less interesting and fascinating for all
that. The story deifies gold and illustrates
the omnipotence of wealth."
Railway Officials Banqueted in Mexico.
Mexico, via Galveston, May 11.—Last night a
banquet was given by the city council to the di
rectors of the Mexican Central railway, presided
over by Giullarms Valle, president of the coun
cil, who cougratnlated the country on the com
pletion of the road. President Xickerson was
absent, owing to illness, but his speech was read
in Spanish aud English. A member of the party
from Boston, in the name of his companions
proposed a toast to Porlirio Diaz, who, like.
Washington, is "first in the hearts
of his countrymen."' Diaz feelingly
replied, avowing his unworthmess, and said the
compliment was the greatest it was possible to
pay any man in any language, because the com
parison was made with one "who was not only the
most eminent American citizen, but taken all in
all, was the greatest man the world ever saw. He
spoke of his friendship for the Americans, and

Milwaukee, May 10. The Jiquor license
question, settled as to the fee by the board of
aldermen, as noted in last week's letter, has
assumed a new front, or rather haß been
veneered with a new dilemma by a decision
of City Attorney Luscombc, to the effect that
according to a state law every saloonkeeper
who takes out a license must execute a bond
in the sum of $500, signed by two citizens
whose property interests in the city exceed
61,000 each. These bonds guarantee the
keeping of orderly houses and adherence to
the laws prohibiting the sale of liquor to
minors or drunkards. At Hist blush this does
not seem a very great hardship to the mem
bers of the bar liquid, but when the nicety of
discernment necessary to judge between in
nocent hilarity and noisy intoxication and
vealy youthfulness and fresh-blown mauhood
are taken into consideration, it is easy to dis
cern why man\' people will be averse to
signing a saloon bond which will make them
liable for indemnity for infractions of the
law. There is a Citizens' league in the field,
and there is no telling when or where the
vigilantes of that order-loving band will
strike. Mayor "Wallber was inclined to
ignore the state law and proceed
according to the city charter, but
he was visited by influential citizens and
urged to abide by the state law. He dodged
a direct decision by referring the question to
the city attorney, who decided in favor of the
bond. The city clerk immediately had bonds
printed and circulated, and the mayor found
himself "toeing the scratch " before he had
fairly decided whether he would kick over the
traces or not. The keepers of orderly saloons
arc smiling at the readiness with which prop
erty-owning patrons come to their relief, but
the proprietors of questionable " dives " have
in many instances been placed in sore straits
to qualify for their brain-wearing business.
The brewers will probably help a good many
of their patrons over the centre of their new
dilemma, and it is questionable whether the
bond annoyance will measureably reduce the
number of saloons in Milwaukee. Indeed,
some knowing ones predict an increase to
1,200, which will give the city about $90,000
revenue.
■WHAT TIIEY EXPECT.
The Globe correspondent invested in a
glass of beer, the other night, at one of the
best known saloons in the business centre,
and while the proprietor was waiting for an
other call, interviewed him on the situation.
The beer-drawer and schooner-navigator ex
pressed no concern for the present. The
high license Republicans and prohibitionists,
he said, are too deeply interested in the
coming presidential election to risk the loss
of the German vote by high pressure crowd
ing of the saloon people this summer. Next
year he expects music by the w-hole band.
He would not be surprised if the license was
then raised to $200,0r even §500. He also ex
pects a movement towards the enforcement
of Sunday laws and the curtailment of otiier
liberties dear to the Teutonic heart. There
is a good deal of logic in this bartender's
reasoning, but it is hardly probable that very
extreme measures will be instituted against
beer-drinkers in Milwaukee, where millions
are invested in the manufacture of the amber
fluid, and where the brewers are looked upon
even by the high-license and prohibition
people, as solid and progressive business
men. Milwaukee's beer anii brick have
made her famous, and any harsh movement
against either business would seem like the
foolish act of the tree-pruncr who sawed off a
limb between himself and the trunk.
FIRST BAPTIST CIICRCII.
Eev. A. F. Mason, of the First Baptist
church, has resigned his pastorate, fixing the
date of the close of his engagement at the
13th of July next. This resignation is the
culmination of cliureh troubles mentioned
in the letters several months ago. At
that time Mr. Mason ser.t in
his resignation to test thetemper of his flock.
It had beon so openly hinted that his services
were no longer desirable, that his friends
thought resignation the best course to pur
sue, lie accordingly resigned, but his
friends controlled the meeting at which his
withdrawal was read and would not accept it.
Whether this was preconcerted, lite the
Conkling-Piatt fiasco in New York politics,
your correspondent is unable to say, but
there was a strong tinge of diplomacy in the
matter. Its effect was only temporary, and
after a brief season of rest the trouble epened
apace again. The Globe correspondent had
a brief talk with a leading member of the
church about a week ago, and learned from
him the inside history of the affair since the
meeting which refused to accept the resig
nation when it was first submitted. It seems
that Chas. L. Colby, president of the Wiscon
sin Central railroad, who i 3 a pillar of the
church and a rock of great strength under
the Baptist church of the northwest, first in
formed Mr. Mason of the division in his
Sock, and asked him to resign. Then Mr.
Colby went east with his family. Mr. Mason
did resign, but as has been stated his resig
nation was not accepted. When Mr.
Colby returned temporarily, several
weeks ago, Mr. Mason went to Chicago
to meet him and have the first talk on the
new situation of affairs. The result of that
talk was not favorable to Mason. Mr. Colby
informed him that he must go or he (Mr.
Colby) would withdraw from the church.
Finally Mr. Colby agreed to see the leading
members of the church and report to Mr.
Mason. He interviewed the church mem
bers according to agreement, and wrote to
Mr. Mason informing him that a large num
ber of them were favorable to his retirement,
and stated that if upon his return from New
York Mr. Mason still persisted in occupying
the pulpit, decisive measures would be taken
to settle the matter. These decisive meas
ures have been rendered unnecessary by Mr.
Mason's resignation and its acceptance.
THE CAUSE.
The origin of the trouble is as difficult to
trace as a Coeur d'Alene gold vein. After
sifting everything very fine, and giving the
accused the benefit of the doubt, one is in
clined to base the whole thins; on purely per
sonal grounds. One can easily see how triv
ial objections can be magnified in a church
quarrel so as to include doctrinal questions,
as not one in twenty average church mem
bers knows anything about doctrine. The
difference between the various Protest
ant, churches is as little known almost as
the exact distance between tweedledum and
tweedledee. Some of the church members
went bo far as to hint that Mr ilason
is at heart a Swedenbonrian, and
that his wife is even strongerin that doctrine
than he is himself. Tour correspondent has
heard many of Mr. Mason's sermons, but
cannot say that they were other than sound
Christian teachings, sparkling with thought
and full of vigor. As to doctrine he is silent.
The First Baptist church has a poor record to
back it in this trouble, as one of its most pop
ular pastors. Rev. Mr. Griffiths, was forced
out a number of years ago because he
preached so hard against grain gambling
that it hurt the feelings of a prominent grain
operator now of Chicago. Mr. Griffiths' re
tirement is mourned to this day by many of
the First Baptist flock. Mr. Mason's with
drawal will also cause sorrow, as he is a per
fect gentleman and a preacher of acknowl
edged brilliance.
DEATH OF DR. WEEKS.
Dr. Lemuel W. Weeks, one of Milwaukee's
earliest pioneers, died on his dairy farm at
Summit, Waukesha county, Tuesday night
last, at the age of seventy-eight years. He
came to this city in 1830, and made a fortune
by real estate speculation, principally ou the
South side, and although he subse
quently lost a large amount of money in
unfortunate operations iv wheat and pork,
he died a wealthy man. His real estate in
terests in Milwaukee aggregate $100,000.
He is survived by his wife and two children.
Horace Weeks, his son, is a miller on the
Hudson river, New York. His daughter is
Mrs. Geo. G. Jones, of this city. Mrs.
Weeks is a sister of Wm. A. Prentice, of
Milwaukee.
AN OLD LANIJMAUK.
The Republican boose, on the corner of
Cedar and State streets, is being torn down
to make room for a new hotel, which will cost
$54,000. Several years ago a brick addition
wa3 built on the north sjde of the hotel, and
the structure which is to take the place of the
old building in process of demolition will be
of the same style of architecture as the wing
mentioned. When completed the hotel will
be one of the largest in the city. The old
building was erected on Cherry street in
1836, ami named the AVashington house. It
was afterwards moved to its present site, and
at the time of the birth of the Republican
party it was renamed by its then proprietor,
an ardent Republican.

PILES! PILES!
A sure cure for Blind, Bleeding, Itching and
Ulcerated Piles, has been discovered by Dr. Wil
liam, (an Indian remedy) called Dn. WILLIAM'S
INDIAN" OINTMENT. A single box has cured
the worst chronic cases of 25 years' standing. No
one need suffer five minutes after applying this
wonderful soothing medicine. Lotions and in
struments do more harm than good. William's
Ointment absorbs the tumors, allays the intense
itching, (particularly at night after getting warm
in bed,) acts as a poultice, gives instant and pain
less relief, and is prepared only for Piles, itching
of the 4rivatc parts, and for nothing else For

"By a thorough knowledge of the natural laws

provided our breakfast tables with a delicately
flavored beverage which may gave us many heavy

articles of diet that a constitution may be gradu

with pure blood and a properly nourished frame."
