AMONG THE HORSES,
Youngsters That Made Their
Mark on the Turf Last
Ten Hi^h-Bred Yearlings Es
tablish Records of Three
Minutes or Better.
Repaid Wilkes, Axtell and
Sunol Looked Upon as
Sunol's Wonderful Conforma
—Whips and Tips.
The following table, prepared by the
turf editor of the Turf, Field and Farm,
ami comprises for the past season the
n;irliut?s who trotted or paced in 3
minutes or better; two-year-olds in 2:50
or better: three-year.olds in 2:40 or bet
ter, and four-year-olds in 2:30 or better.
It Is a very difficult compilation to
make. and. in the nature of tilings, can
not be absolutely correct. Emendations
will be received and credit given.
There are only ten of the yearlings, and
those who deprecate requiring such in
fants to go a full mile at speed will not
regret this. It is too severe a task, ex
cept in the case of a lew phenomenal
ones, and^bould be prohibited by pub
lic opinion, if not by law. The fastest
mile by a yearling was 2:85, by Faus
tina, bay colt, by Sidney, owned by
Count Valen3iii, of California. The two
year-olds that did the 2:40 trick
are much more numerous, yet
fifty failed where one succeeded. The
honors for the age belong to Regal
Wilkes, bay colt, by Guy Wilses, la
2:-20%. This is the second two-year-old
to beat the famous 2:21 of Wild Flower,
which was so long deemed unsurpassa
ble, but in this year of wonders the feat
has excited scarcely a ripple of com
ment. It seems to me, if I were a
millionaire lookine for a world-beater.
this fellow, whose dam is Margaret, by
Sultan, would not escape my attention.
The three-year-olds with 2:40 records
are plenty," with Queen Sunol. 2:10};, at
their head, and King Axtell, 8:12, only
yielding place aux dames, while the
four-year-olds, in 2:30 or better, form a
goodly list, with Edgemark, 2; 16, at the
head of the trotters, and Gold Leaf,
2:H 4. commanding the pacers. The ;

CONFORSI4TION OP SUNOL.
Itobert Bnnncr Speaks With En
thusiasm of His New Purchase.
The owner of Maud S can afford to
speak with enthusiasm of her young
rival, JSunol. He has tried the queen —
she has twice lowered her record in his
hands— and he knows tier greatness.
He believes that the daughter of Harold
and Miss Russell can do better than she
has yet done, and yet he cannot close
his eyes to the fact that a three-year-old
which trots in 2:lo>£, and which has
been timed a quarter in thirty seconds,
may rate, with age, to a lower mark than
2:OS? 4 . The best: way is to test the
question in public. The queen, and the
princely daughter of the house of Elec
tioneer, should be brought together on
a good track some time next year, and
each be driven for all that is in her.
Bouner says: "The more I see of Sunol
the 1. .0 re 1 am impressed with her won
derful conformation.- Hickok tells me
that she has more speed than even his
great pacer, Adonis', and Marvin says
she is the only trotter he has ever driven
a quarter in 30 seconds. As she is only
a baby, it remains.' to be seen whether
she can, when she matures, lower Maud
S's record; but as Gov. Stanford puts it,
I think she can if any horse can do it.
Still, as you are aware, the public do
not know all that Maud S is capable of
OPEN TO THE WORLD.
Senator Stanford's Unaccepted
Challenge to Breeders of Trot
It was several weeks ago that we an
nounced, on the authority of Senator
: Lei and Stanford, that ten or twenty
half-breeds, sons and daughters of Elec
tioneer, out of thoroughbred mares,
would be matched by Palo Alto acainst
an equal number of foals of the same
age by one stallion out of trotting mares
untried in the stud, i The object of the
proposition is to submit theory to a
practical test, to settle, by actual trial,
the question as to whether colts out of
mares possessed of what are generally
recognized as trottine strains can per
form better in harness than foals of the
same age by a trotting stallion out of*
careful y selected thoroughbred mares.
We should have thought that some of
the blind followers of the wordy
advocates ot no-thoruughbred-blood-in
rotter would have snapped up this
challenge before now. : li" they really
believe in the dogmas of their windy
preachers, they should step to the front
with their money. Thus far- there has
been no acceptance of the : liberal prop
osition, and the silence of Senator Stan
ford's critics is suggestive. It means
that the faith of the radicals has been
undermined by the cold logic of recent
events. Dame Winnie, a thorough
breds, is one of the greatest trot-pro
ducing brood mares at Palo Alto, and
Esther, dam of Express, 2:21, is steadily
: growing in reputation as a mother of
j trotters. The price put upon the year
ling sister of Express by Senator Stan
ford was $7,500, and Marvin did not
want her sold even at this fieure. He
said if such yearlings were allowed to
pass from Palo Alto, he would find it
hard work to win stake engagements
when he crossed the mountains with a
string or trotters, and his manner
plainly indicated that lie meant just
what he said. ; / :-y . ■ .- -•
WHIPS AND' TIPS.
Gossip About Horses, . Horsemen
and Their Doings.
Everybody seems anxious to find out
how much Mr. Bouner paid for the
great Sunol. "but as yet all remain in
ignorance. A great many stories and
surmises have been set afloat, the latest
one squeezed out of the New Yorker by
a California reporter being as follows:
"1 am bound on honor not to divuige
the exact figure. However, I'll say
more to you than I have yet said to any
one. I gave more than (40,000 and less
than $50,000; strike your own average."
Without counting on his figures, the
reporter asked: "Well, did you throw
in your blood mare Lucy Cuyler with
115.000?" "I didn't say J45.000, did I?"
Without waiting for an answer Mr. Bon
ner added: "Lucy Cuyler did not go
with the bargain. She still belongs to
me, and is at present with my stud."
There is a possibility that Budd Doble
will handle the lines over Maud S next
year. To a reporter for a San Francisco
paper Mr. Bonner said recently "that
one of his sons had asked him to let
Maud S go into the bands of Budd
Doble, who desired to bring her to this
coast, where he fully expected she would
materially lower her record. There is
great probability of my acceding to my
son's request," he said. "You see," he
added, "Murphy, my trainer for over
twenty years, died a few months ago,

and during his lingering sickness I re
frained from appolntine any one to his
place for fear he would think I, too,
had given up all hope of his recovery.
I may, when I get back, let Doble have

Martin Bersren, tho jockey, said re
cently that he had earned *0,000 this
year. This is a large amount for him,
as ho has only come to the front within
twelve months. He is likely to soon
again sign with Capt. Sam Brown for
1890. Garrison earned closed to #-.20,000
this year. The colored boy Barnes
pocketed $12,000, while Isaac Murphy,
Taylor, Hay ward, McLuughlin and
l.ittletiekl, exclusive of gifts, earned
from $7,000 to $10,000 each. These aro
neat sums of money for work in tne
saddle, but when tho danger and the
labor and skill aro considered, the pay
is not too large.
Many rich American owners have
Shown much liberality to their trainers,
jockeys and stable employes on occa
sions when they-liavo won valuable
stakes, but the way they do things in
Australia makes their gifts appear
small. Tho cable announces that W.
T. Jones, the owner of Bravo, winner
of the Melbourne Cup, immediately
upon learning of the victory, directed
that his trainer bo presented with
110,000. To his jockey he gave $3,500,
and to the stable boys*2.ooo.

COURTSHIP IN TURKEY.
It Is Conducted With the Utmost
Decorum Through a Broker.
The most unsatisfactory courtships of
all must be the Turkish, where the can
didate fur matrimony is . forbidden j to
see the bride, and must act through a
broker, generally an old . woman, who
interests herself for a consideration. and
who can usually be bought by the one
who pays the most.
' When the knot is tied then for the
firs time the bridegroom sees the bride's
face. Often the result is a disappoint
ment, and the promised nymph or hour!
turns out to be plain, ignorant and un
companionable. -No wonder, with such
possibilities, the path of divorce is made
very easy in the land of the Turk.

at Mabel Vane. lie was young, with a
bold, manly face, curling brown hair
and beard and speaking cray eyes, a
man, in grace of person, manly beauty
and pure heart— a man worthy of the
name. He was only a sailor, and had
risen to his present rank from cabin
boy, but yet he dared to love the daugh
ter of the East Indian millionaire, Ar
thur Vane. "! V;
lie loved her and he had no hope
loved her as we worship a star which is
far beyond our reach. Nothing was
further from his thought than to insult
her by telling Her that he loved her;
but to be near her, to see her often,
perhaps to do some service which would
win a smile from her— that was reward
enough for Will Clay.
She never dreamed of his adoration,
and he had heard her say among her
friends that she liked him better than
any other officer on board the Grey.
Eagle. She said it in the careless way
of girlhood, and yet he treasured* it in
his heart. Standing there, watching
the course of the ship, and ready to give
a word of warning to the wheelman if
it were needed, he never took his eyes
from her lone.
"Mr. Clay," said the man at the
wheel, as he gave it a half turn ami
rested there, "don't you smell smoke?-'.
"It comes from the galley."
'•Perhaps so, but what are they burn
ing rosin in the galley for?"
"Rosin," cried Will, raising his head
quickly and snuffing the air. Fie caught
the peculiar smell himself, and leaped
down from the wheel-house. "Keep
steady," he whispered to the niau at the
wheel. "There may be danger, but if
there is. for God's Rake, keep it quiet."
The man nodded quietly and took a
firmer hold on the wheeL - Will Clay

haste and yet with a terrible jf ear. tug

the captain coining out of the gentle
man's cabin, and hurried up to him.
"There is : ' something wrong." he
whispered. "Don't you smell . burning

"Go forward and investigate," he said
in a low tone. "If you find that it is a

are the boats?"
"All right, sir; you may trust to
They had good cause for fear. The
entire forehold was filled with rosin, in
boxes and casks, and if a fire started
there it might as well be in a nest of fat
pine. Will ran down to the lowerdeck,
where he was met by a crowd of excited
firemen and • coal-passers, who were
rushing madly on deck. Quick as
thought he seized the foremost and hur
ried him back. -:■
"Get back, you fools!" he cried.
"Where are you running to?"
"Fir*»!" whispered the man, hoarsely.
"Fire in the forehold!"
"Suppose there is. Is it your doty to
rush on deck and alarm the passengers,
or get buckets and try to put out the
fire? Back, there, all of you. for 1 will
brain the man who dares to flinch now.
Stand back, I say!"
The men cowed before his superior
will and saw that they might yet do
something to save the steamer.
A guard was placed at the hatch, so
that no one could come down, and the
scuttle which led into the forehold was
opened. No sooner was this done than
a dense volume of black smoke rolled
out, and the scuttle was closed again,
for Will saw that nothing could be done
in that way. The men ran forward
with axes, but had scarcely gone a
dozen steps when they felt the deck
tremble under their feet and saw small
jets of flame shooting up through the
planks. A moment more and there was
a sort of explosion, and the red flames
leaped up suddenly and caught the

danger from the passengers now, for

cries from the deck announced that the

sea, the danger of all others the most
feared— the danger of fire! Women

trembled and could not move hand or
foot, and others ran wildly about the
decks, rendering no assistance. Mabel
Vane, utterly bewildered by the sudden
horror, felt a strong hand cjutcn her
arm, and saw Will Clay, blackened by
smoke and singed by flame.
•'Go aft," he said, hoarsely. "Stand
on the port quarter and wait for me,
and 1 will save you or die trying. Obey
me girl. 1 am your master now."
She looked at him in mute wonder and
obeyed him In silence. He sprang
away and began to fight the fire as he
could, aided by the officers and crew,
a.id some few of the passengers who
kept their heads. Among these was
Arthur Vane, a handsome old gentle
man with an engaging face.
. "You are a man, William Clay," he
said, as the two burled the contents of
a great water cask down the open
batch. "If we ever: escape, the com
pany shall know that they have got a

"Love her, you."
"Just now you said I was a man,"
said Will, quietly. . "Lay hold on that
cask, you. What are you shirking for;
can't we talk and work, too?"
A strange smile came over the face of
the old merchant, and they burled the
cask into the water, and assisted the

crowd recoiled before this determined
young man, for even in an hour like this
men fear sudden death.
"Keep back, 1 say!" repeated the
young mate. "Pass along those ladies
first, for they go in the first boat."
The order was promptly obeyed, and
then six of the crew, called out by name,
went into the boats and pulled away
from the gangway, under command of
the first mate. ' Boat after boat pulled
up to the gangway, received its load
and pulled away. There was no more

of the young mate and the captain, who

them aud they pushed off, leaving the
captain and mate upon the doomed
steamer, as long tongues of flame leaped
out toward the boat. Through this
fiery barrier the two men dashed and
were seen striking out for tire boat.
"Stop I" cried Mr. Vane. "You have
left the captain and Mr. Clay."
The men looked at him fiercely, but
the steady eye of the old man awed
them and the two were helped into the
boat, the captain supported by the
strong arm of his gallant mate." The
boats pulled away together, while the
column of flame which shot into the air
announced the fate of the Grey Eagle.
