der and sentenced to imprisonment tor lite
at hard labor. The jury were out about
seven hours and a half. There was marked
silence in the crowded room when Mrs.
Dill was ushered in to receive her
sentence. She was deathly pale,
but otherwise self-possessed. Mr. bunder
hoff was called to interpret the words of
Judge Hudson, Mrs. Dill being a German.
When asked if she had anything to say
why sentence should not be passed upon
her she replied. "1 am not guilty." Ihe
fortitude Mrs. Dili possessed was remarka
ble, but as the judge pronounced upon her
an imprisonment for life sentence she
tainted away. Her counsel. W. K. Pur
cell caught her in his arms and with the
assistance 01 a bailiff bore her from the

disappeared Jan. 96, and that about ten
days afterward his body was found m a pile

the two sons wore accomplices to the deed.

of Albright, Smith & Co. last week, hav

proof safe, spent a long time in fruitless ef
forts to open it. As a last expedient resort

An Apparent Wrongs
There is trouble in Hanson county over a
recent decision of some of the laud officials.
It seems that when the county was settled
many of the quarter sections had consider
able excess that had to be paid for before
filing was allowed. Of course this excess
has been improved like the rest of the land
and valuable buildings are often found on
it. Now the settlers are notified that it was
all a mistake, allowing them to pay for the
excess, and that it could only be secured by
entry as in case of the rest of the land ami
they are told to come and get the money
back, and the land goes to the government.
The hardship of this is shown in the in
stance of Joseph Swift. He has about one
hundred acres of this excess, all in cmltiva
tion and all his buildings on it. He was
compelled to buy it and it wotUd be sheer
robbery to force him to give it up now. But
the settlers are refusing to take the money
back and will organize and resist the execu
tion of the order. Gov. Pierce will prob
ably send the attorney general to inquire
into the facts.

The Democrats in Dakota see much en
couragement in the recent removal of the
Republican postmaster at Ipswich and the
appointment of a Democrat. Mr. Bold, the
postmaster, was very popular, and no
charges of any sort could be brought against

The Huron Democrat believes that there is
equally good cause for the removal of every
Republican in office in the territory, and is
confident that it is a "pointer" full of .en
couragement to Democrats.
The presbytery of Dakota, which recently

murdered an Insane Patient.
Noebistowx, Penn.,May9. — Alexander
Steele, an attendant in the insane asylum,
was brought before Burgess White this
morning charged with murder. The orig
inal commitment was manslaughter in con
nection with the killing of Theodore Castor,
an insane patient in the asylum, who was
found dead with a number of ribs broken.
The violence used was such that one of the
broken ribs pierced the victim's heart. Will
iam L. Turnbull, the other attendant, accused
of killing Castor, was used as witness. He
says he saw Steele brutally kick and bruise
Castor for leaving his bed and refusing to
return. After the beating witness went to
bed and heard the assault renewed. A few
minutes later Steele called him and Castor
died in his presence. Steele asked him not
to give it away. This request and his fear
of Steele prevented his giving this testi
mony at the coroner's inquest. Steele was
committed for murder and Turnbull
held as a witness.
New Chief for the Printing- Bureau.
Washington, May 9.— Secretary Man
ning to-day requested the resignation of
Col. T. N. Burrill, chief of the bureau of
engraving and- printing. E. O. Graves, as
sistant treasurer of the United States, has
been appointed to fill the vacancy. Mr.
Graves entered the department in 1863 as
a §1,700 clerk, has served as chief of the
department, as superintendent of the re
demption agency and as assistant treasurer.
He was also examiner of the
civil service commission under
Grant and in 1877 was a member of the
commission appointed to reorganize the
bureau of engraving and printing, The ap
pointment is a promotion for Mr. Graves,
the salary being $900 more per year than
that of the assistant treasurer. He voted
for Mr. Cleveland. The bureau of engrav
ing and printing has about 1,200 employes,
but twelve of whom come under the pro
visions of the civil service law. They are
appointed by the chief of the bureau.

The June Sale at Midway.
On the 10th of June next the public auc
tion of high-bred trotting stock will take
place at Midway park, St. Paul. A very
handsome and complete . catalogue of the
stock offered has been prepared by Capt. J.
P. Wood, and any person desiring one can
obtain it by writingtoß.D.Woodraans.ee.Bt.
Paul. Minn. Some of this stock is as good as
the best produced in Kentucky, New York,
California or, any . other state, as any one
can see by examining the pedigrees given
in the catalogue. The sires and dams of
some of these youngsters offered to the
public at this sale, have no superiors for
breeding, size, form I and • all else
that goes to make .up first
class trotting stock. They form and
constitute a part of the great family of ac
knowledged standard trotting stock pro
ducers of this country. All are of good
size, well-boned. and muscled up, strong,
vigorous and healthy. While, therefore,
their breeding is through the same lines—
the Hambletonians, Clays and Mambrinos—
their form, strength and general health is
far superior to the stock offered in the states
referred to. This last is the one : great
point that Minnesota will always have to
boast of. Some portion of the year we
have very cold weather, but while it is cold
it is not damp, and the lungs and hearts of
animals bred here are in a healthy condi
tion, and consequently they can endure
more work and are better every way. There
is good reason to believe that when our
breeders are well agoing in -.the business,
that is, in the course of a. few years more,
they will demonstrate . that Minnesota has
no superior, as a state, in which to breed
the trotting horse. Last week we gave a
list of the stock that C. A. DeGratf will:
put into the sale. Below will be found the
list of youngsters that will be put in by

A STIUJVCi OF Tittmm <;iiiiiii:us.
A Veteran ' .Trainer ' « I ves 'the ; Fine
Points of J.K.Aekcrmmi'n String:.
The Globe has already mentioned most
of the horses now at the Minneap
lis Driving park, but there are a
number of lino animate which have
been removed to the stables there the past
two weeks, notably those in the charge of
the veteran trainer and driver, J. E. Aeker
inau, and owned by J. F, Appleby of the
twine binder fame. Mr, Ackerman was
called upon by a representative of the
Gr,oiiE a few days ago. He was found not
only a clever and successful horseman, but
an affable and accommodating gentleman.
He has in charge some phenomenal two
year-olds, horses that are destined to as
tonish this part of the country, if not the
world. At the head of the list comes the
beautiful chestnut stallion, Lakeland. He
has a notable pedigree: By Anton, by Al
mont, by Alexander AbdaJlah, sire of Gold
smith Maid; first dam by Brown Chief, by
Mambrino Chief, sire of Lady Thorne,
Then comes the handsome chestnut mare
Pearl, ft fine-bred animal, sired by Tuckyho,
dam by Swigert. She trotted last
year in a three-year-old race, mak
ing a mile in 3:45)^, which we
believe is the best time ever made in this
state. She has only started in two races.
Like all the horses handled by Mr. Acker
man, Pearl is intelligent and well trained.
She understands her master as does a New
foundland dog, and does his bidding,
Twine Binder is an extraordinary chest
nut gelding. He is tall, rangy, and his mus
cular development is perfection personified.
He has a vexatious and almost incorrigible
aptitude for running away whenever
speeded, so that it is impossible to even ap
proximate his possibilities. It is
however, to say that he is speedy. He
shows up fairly and is graceful. His habit
of running away, Mr. Ackerinan believes,
is now in a fair way of being broken. Be
fore passing into the hands of his present
owner Twine Binder had his jawbone
badly shattered by some sort of a device by
which his driver undertook to drive him so
that he could not run. Mr. Ackenuan's
ingenuity has been brought into requisition.
He has invented five styles of bits, and has
now succeeded in getting one that pleases
the horse. Although naturally high-lived
and somewhat rebellious, Mr. Ackerinan
has him now trained to all sorts of tricks,
and he gave an exhibition with him in
front of the stables yesterday, without
bridle or halter. He will be started in the
June races of the Driving Park association.
Low Down is a small black stallion and
a wonder to everybody. Mr. Appleby has
become so attached to him that money can
not purchase him. He will not be 3
years old until July, but he can pace a
"living storm." Yesterday Mr. Ackerman
hitched him up to Black Bird, a running
mate, and paced him around the track three
times after warming him up. Some of the
best judges predict that when 7 yeai's old
Low Down will make it warm for John
ston, but that is a long way in the future.
As it is there are many who are willing to
wager large sums that he is the fastest colt
in the country. No one not having wit
nessed the feat would have believed it,
therefore the time in which the colt paced
a mile will not be given out. When pulled
off the track there was not a
"wet hair ON mar,
Low Down was sired by Tuekyho and is
out of a half sister to Pearl.
The black stallion Diamond is a two
year-old trotter of great promise. He was
sired by Executor, the well-known stallion,
and is nearly the same breeding as the horse
As Low Down is a phenomenal pacer, so
is the black gelding Dandy a phenom
enal trotter. He was also hitched
up to the running mate and
exhibited. It was the eleventh time he had
been in harness, and scarcely knew what
trotting was, yet he went, although some
what unsteady, like the wind. He is 3
years old and will be started this summer
What his possibilities are it is difficult to
predict. Some think he can beat 2:30 this
summer. His breeding is nearly the same
as that of Low Down.
Unknown is another handsome black 2
year-old of promise. Sired by Tuekyho,
byAntar, and dammed by a blooded mare of
note. He has only been in the harness a
few times, but will be tracked at once.
William Parker, the well-known colored
driver, and / the trainer of Molhe B a few
years ago, has a fine stud of trotters in
training for the campaign. Among them is
the chestnut stallion Glenwood with a
record of 2:27, by Wapsil, and owned by
Dr. Dunsinoor. He is particularly ad
mired for his staying qualities.
Prince Smith has a new acquisition to his
stable in a green horse by Swigart and
owned by James O'Brien of Fergus Falls.
It is said that he showed a mile in 2:24 last
L. A. Legg feels especially elated over
the feats of his thoroughbred mare Ollie
Becket, in outrunning the famous Laßelle
N, and carrying 25 pounds more than La
John Van Horn has just taken a green
gelding and a green mare to train, and he
thinks he has got winners in them.
Mike Gannon also has some promising
green horses in training.
How Shall We Breed Our Mares!
To the Turf Editor of the Globe.
The question of breeding is an important
thing. Fanners send their mares either to
the nearest stallion, the cheapest one, or
the one owned by their neighbors who so
licits their business. Every owner of a brood
mare owes it to himself, to his neighbor and
to the owners of stallions to breed with
judgment. By this it is not meant he must
breed to the most expensive stallion, or that
he should send his mares hundreds of miles
away to breed her to the sire of the sensa
tional trotter of last season. He should
first decide what he wants to do. Now that
we have decided to breed trotters, let us see
what is required. We find the following
elements: size, color, action and the market
value of blood lines. The judicious breeder
will always aim high. If he fails in hitting
the mark he will be sure to find himself in
a better position for the next trial. In other
words, he breeds to the best stallion avail
able. He must be better bred than the
mare. No sane man desiring a trotter will
breed a running mare to a pacing stallion
and reasonably expect a trotter. Wonders
never cease. He might get one. No horse
cam transmit what he does not possess. It
is hoped that owners of brood mares may
be led to give the question of
breeding that careful study it
deserves, and fully investigate the
matter. A few dollars saved on a stallion
fee may prove a loss of ten times the
amount saved when a purchaser is sought
for the produce. How many breeders have
given this a thought? What are the pro
ducing blood lines? Take Wallace's stud
book and compare them and see for your
self. Two-thirds of our fastest trotters of
to-day are descendants of Rysdyk's Hamble
todian and Mambfino Chief. For instance,
take George Wilkes, son of Rysdyk's Ham
bletonian. His best cross was on Mam
brino-Patchen mares, and Dictator's was on
Mambrino Chief and Clark Chief mares.
How many Hambletonian stallions that are
producers that have got the blood of Ham
bletonian Star, Mambrino Chief and Clay
cross on their dams? Black Hawk and Mor
gan on the second and third dams are very
essential. You take the Black Hawk and
Morgan on first dams and they produce very
few trotters, but tiiey are trotters them
selves. How many sons or grandsons of Rys
dyk's Hambletonian out of Black Hawk or
Morgan dams that have sired trotters? Only
one of note, namely, Almout, Jr., who has
four in the 2:30 list. By in-breeding on
mare's relation on the sire's dams you are
likely to get trotters. For instance, take a
Hambletonian staljion whose dam is Black
Hawk or Morgan blood and breed her to
such a stallion and the produce is likely to
be very rapid. On the other hand, you take
a stallion whose dam is Mambrino Chief
and Black Hawk and they cross on most
any kind of mares. I think I have taken
up too much of your space already, so I will
close until later. Respectfully,
C. S. Radcliffe.
An Addition to the Running Turf.
Chicago Breeders' Gazette,
From present appearance the running
turf will ere long receive a notable addition
to its list of owners in the person of the
California millionaire, Mr. .John W. Mackey,
that gentleman having, through his agent,
been conspicuous at the recent sales of thor
oughbred yearlings in Kentucky, and it is
probable that when the Woqdburn colts and
lillies are offered to the public; he will again
be a liberal purchaser. At the Belle Meade
sale, which took place April 30, where the
stock disposed of included the get of such
sires as Enquirer, Great Tom, Bramble and
Jjiike Blackburn, Mr, Mackey's agent se
cured eleven choicely-bred ones, and the ex
tent of his investment at this, the opening
sale of the year, indicates that lie intends
going into racing on an extensive scale.
The Enquirer yearlings which fell to Mr.
Ma^key's bids were a chestnut colt out
of Vanilla by Jack Malone; a chestnut filly
out of Capitoja by Albion; a brown filly out
of that good mare Mozelle (dam of Brook
lyn, Bridecake and Beechenbrook) by Jack
Malone; a bay filly out of Blondina by Bon
nie Scotland; a brown filly out of Bandanna
by Bonnie Scotland; a black filly out of
Nubia by Albion and a bay filly out of Tal
lulah by Planet. The two Blackburns are
a chestnut filly out of Gossip by Leaming
ton and a chestnut filly out of Annie Au
gusta by Leamington. A bay colt by Great
Tom, dam by Sawn, and a bay filly by
Bramble, dam by Tipperary, completed the
purchases. It woxild seem that Mr. Mackey
has purchased with a view to the breeding
as well as the racing qualities of his stock,
as the blood lines of the animals selected by
him have become famous as successful pro-*
ducers of runners.
Thoughts of Shoeing and Training.
Turf, Field and Farm.
The lightning flashed outside and the
elms which shaded the porch dripped the
moisture of an April sky, but it was dry
and cozy in the parlor of the old-fashioned
hotel. "I am sorry that the rain began be
fore you arrived," said Turner, "becau.se J
wanted to let you see the horses work on
the track. Now you will have to look at
them in the stable." ♦Thad counted on
different weather," replied the owner of
Maud S, "but we will make the best of the
situation. If you will kindly have each
horse led from his box to the stable floor I
can see all that I am most anxious to see."
After Trinket, Edwin Thorne and others
had been critically examined, Turner re
marked: "The first time I saw you, Mr.
Bonner, was at Point Breeze, twenty-nine
years ago. You were a famous man even
then, and I took a position where 1 could
study you well. I was a boy, and I was
curious to see whether you would buy the
horse which the parties who had you in tow
were ottering. After seeing him go you
declined to purchase, and I was gratified,
because the animal was not what was repre
sented. You know more about horses
now." "Yes, I have picked up a great
deal of information. My limit at first was
$800. Now, it is difficult to say what I
really would pay for a horse which would
beat the record of Maud S. With me, the
best is the cheapest. All tilings considered,
Maud S was the 'cheapest horse I ever
bought. She had what 1 wanted, and what
I spent more than twice §40,000 in trying
to obtain by the purchase of other horses.
This is my second visit to Point Breeze,
and I think that I am able to give you more
points about horses than would have been
possible twenty-nine years ago. As I have
f uriu'shed you some information about shoe
ing, I should like to have you answer one
or two questions on training." "All
right," said the renowned reinsman, "go
ahead." "In preparing Trinket for a race,
or a trotter of equal speed, would you at
any time drive her a fast mile?" "No. I
first give a horse strength by plenty of slow
work, and I frequently brash him about
150 yards just to see if he has his speed. If
I know on the eve of a race that he is hard
and strong and has his speed, I am satisfied.
Ido not want a watch held on him from
wire to wire. I am confident that his
strengtli is sufficient to sustain the action,
and I do not care to run the risk of tearing
him to pieces in trials upon which no money
depends. When I was a boy and §200 looked
as big as a million, I had a horse matched
against a pacer to go a single mile for $250
a side. Jn training him 1 discovered that
through excess of action he hit his arms. I
was in despair, when 1 was advised to try
and put him into condition by swimming.
Like a drowning man, I grasped at a straw.
The river ran near my door. I hired a man
to row me in a boat, while 1 sat in the stern
and held the halter. We started up stream,
and the horse swam beautifully. On the
return he struck out eagerly, and actually
towed the boat. I kept this up for ten
days, and I never brought a horse to the
post in better condition. The violent ac
tion in the water had given pliancy and
firmness to his muscles and made his wind
as clear as the ring of a bell. I won the
race easily, but it is lucky that it was a sin
gle dash, because through his faulty action
he cut his arms into ribbons. The great
trouble in training on the track is to avoid
driving a horse off his legs. He is apt to
pound himself to piece 3 before you get him
to a race." "If you keep your horse bal
anced you will correct faulty action and re
duce the risk of breaking him down," ob
served the owner of Maud S. "True,"
quickly replied Gen. Turner; "but unfor
tunately, none of us understand the science
of shoeing, the principle of action, as you
do. Show me the way, and I will gladly
follow." The theory of Turner with regard
to trials previous to a race will not apply to
all horses. For instance, on the Saturday
before the Tuesday on which Maud S made
her record of 2:09) i, the chestnut mare was
driven a mile in 2:lo>£.
Sannie G. is about to foal.
Commodore Kittson and D. W. Wood
mansee left Saturday night for Chicago.
The services of Capt. Kidd of Lexing
ton, Ky., who performed the duties of auc
tioneer at the Midway June sale last year,
has been secured to act in that capacity at
the sale on the 10th of June next.
The change in the track at Midway has
been completed and is a good deal improved.
It is not lay any means a regulation track,
as the limited space will not allow such a
one to be constructed. It is greatly im
proved, however, and will be serviceable
for exercising the horses.
John Wright of Farmington has added to
his trotting stock the black mare, Belva
Lockwood. She is B years old and is 15.3,
sired by Allie Games, owned by Simons &
Clough,.of Rochester, Minn. Allie Games
is byAlmont. Her dam is by Dorsey's
The brood mare Lida, property of Com
modore Kittson, died at Erdenheim the night
of May 4, from the decay incident to old age.
As the dam of Enquirer she will always be
noted. She was also the dam of Tocsin
and The Squaw. Lida was a bay, foaled
1858, by Lexington, dam Lize, by American
Eclipse, out of Gabriella, by Sir Archy.
H. G. Finkle of Moorehead has entered
his bay colt, Lord Nelson, by Wellington,
in the three-year-old colt stakes, in St.
Louis, Thursday, October 8, 1885. He
will meet there the celebrated three-year
olds by Electioneer. These are the well
known Palo Alto colts about which so
much has been said and written. Mr. Fin
kle bolts into the fastest company . known
in the United States, and we hope he has
not made any mistake.
The officers of the State Fair association
endeavored to secure the services of Capt.
Charles Smith of Earlville, 111., as starting
judge of the races at the state fair, but he
writes that it will not be possible for him to
come. It will be remembered that Capt.
Smith acted in that capacity at Minneapolis
several years ago while that city was con
tending for the superiority with St. Paul in
regard to fairs, and his management was
very satisfactory, indeed. It is to be re
gretted that his services cannot be secured, i
Now that so much has been written
against C. A. De Gmff s lutnmer of breeding
stock in open sheds during, the winter in
Minnesota, and because so many wise incut
who know so much about .breeding have de
clared that good, healthy trotting stock
could not be successfully bred that way,
we call special attention to the fact that on
the 10th day of June next. Mr. Charles
A. De Graff of the Elysmn
stock farm, Janesville : Minn., will
expose for sale at the Midway auction sale,
a considerable number of colts and lillios
that were bred and raised in open sheds on
his farm, and were not kept during the
winter in box stalls, nor did the groom go
and "tuck them up" in the night or feed
them with warm, consoling drinks with a
spoon. They roughed it. An opportunity
will be given in June to examine them and
see whether they are good, sound, healthy
animals or not.
The Coney Island Jockey club will give
an extra day's racing on Saturday, May 23,
for the benefit of the Bartholdi pedestal
The track at Hampden Park, Springfield,
Mass., has been remodeled, making the
turns perfect, and the track has been sod
ded, the same as at Narraeansett. About
$5,000 has been expended upon it to make
it as near perfect as possible.
The Woodard sale of trotters at Lexing- "
ton, Ky., which closed May 1, was the most
successful affair of the kind on record. 285
head of horses being disposed of at an av
erage price of §278 per head.
"Knapsack" McCarthy has fifteen horses
in training at Philadelphia, the latest ad
dition to the stable being a green pacer
owned by E. H. Smith" of Milwaukee, that
was purchased last winter for $500, and
that is said to be good for a mile in 2:30.
The stallion Ked Cross, 2:21K, has been
sold to a New York gentleman for road
Mr. J. I. Case is willing to sell the pacing
mare Gurgle, record 2:20, owned by him.
Mr. W. J. Gordon of Cleveland has finally
engaged a driver for his stable of trotters
during the coming season, his choice being
T. J. D unbar of Milwaukee.
All the talk about a match race between
Mary Cobb, Harry Wilkes and Phallas has
ended with nothing, being done, and the
plan now is that the associations composing
the Central circuit should make a class foi
these horses, and also admit Trinket and
Panique, the colt that Commodore Kitt
son sold to the Dwyers last year for $14, 000,
and that was subsequently disposed of for a
much smaller sum, is reported to have
broken down in such a wanner that no
hopes or his being able to race again are
Miss Russell, the dam of Maud S, foaled
a grey colt by Harold recently, the young
ster being a full brother to the queen of the
turf. Green Mountain Maid, the dam of
Prospero, 2:20; Elaine, 2:20, and Dame
Trot, 2:22, dropped a full sister to these
well-known trotters two weeks ago.
W. W. Bair— "Shouting aud yelling at
the horse is the old-fashioned way of driv
ing. The cooler and more collected the
driver the less excited the horse and the
better work the horse will do. The only
way to master a horse — I'm speaking of fast
horses more particularly — is to treat them
kindly, speak coaxingly, and be with the
horse you drive enough for him to know you
well. By shouting at a horse and whipping
it you may get it under the wire a second
sooner, and it may drop dead the next
second. If a horse's legs could only stand
the strain faster time could be made, and
Maud's record could be pulled down to two
minutes, A horse's wind will last. It is
not the wind that gives out; it's the legs."
Registered. Standard 1774. Record 2:47;
has shown a 2 :28 gait, without having ever
