'It Is a notorious fact." said an o"J
horseman, "that successful Jockeys
are more alllicted with the bis head
thau any other class of midgets you're
liable to meet up with. Ou two occa
sions that I recall I've seen Auiericau
waiters lake prominent American
jockeys down wheu the latter have be
come insufferable iu their conduct.
Some years ago au eastern jockey
whose fame was spread broadcast
throughout the racing world was tak
ing dinner with a parly of foolishly
Idolatrous friends at the Cliff House,
outside of San Francisco. The jockey
had Uen riding duriug the winter rac
ing iu ami around San Francisco, aud
ou this day he had won the swell event
of the ear ou a rather no account
horse. Consequently his hat was a
whole lot too small for him.
"He was an insulting little chap at
l.cst, but ou this occasion he simply
let his tongue run away with his
brains. His humor took the turn of
ioshimr au Id lime waiter at the Clitf
House who had tecn in California
since the davs of the Argonauts. I he
old man had long side whiskers, ami
the jot-key made sundry and divers re
marks to the waiter about the oppor
tunity he was giving to the wind by
wearing whiskers of that particular
length, and the old man took the talk
good natiiredly .without paying much
intention to the touch or Hastiness in
the midget's remarks. Finally, how
ever, when the wine nan gone aroiuiu
pretty freely, the jockey reached up
In-hind his chair as the old waiter was
in the act of performing some little
service for the men at the table, and
twisting his hand in the hair on one
side of the old servitor's face, lie delib
erately pulled out a fairly large hand
fill of the hitter's whiskers.
"The old man leaped back with pain
and indignation, the jockey laughing
,'at him idiotically. Then the waiter
coolly lifted the jockey out of his chair
by the scruff of the neck, sat down
and calmly deposited the midget across
his knees, face downward.
J "'Son.' said the waiter, 'there's
'something that you've slood in need of

iyonr actions hen? during 'the past few

down with a smack that Mounded very

he had to taxe his medicine. Then his
' friends at the table jumped to his res
cue, and. q'tickly letting the jockey
slide on to the Moor, the old waiter,
.thoroughly nronsed, jumped up and
knocked them down one after the oth

them he stood his ground. Then the

I saw the Incident myself. The jockey
; had had such a mighty accession of
the 'I am it' spirit that he considered
he could perform all sorts of mean lit
tle tricks at the expense of all hands
and do the same with impunity, on
this day he had won three straight
races, and his impcriousness was
'something monumental. He took din
ner witn three liookmakers on one or
the big Coney Island piers. The man
who waited on the party was a bullet
head, but a quiet, attentive man at
that. He was removing some plates
after the second course when the jock
ey picked up a siphon of seltzer and
deliberately squirted half the bottle
full in the waiter's face. The waiter
wiped his face and his shirt front oft
with his table towel and then he walk
ed up to the jockey's chair and said:
" 'Have you had yer dip iu de sea yit
"'No.' said the jockey, with an ex
pression of surprise ou his face, as if
he woudered what was coming.
'I t'oncht uot.' said the bullet
headed waiter. 'Hat's de reason I'm
jgoiu t' let you have it now.'
I "Then the waiter suddenly picked
the famous Jockey up. and Iefore any
of the men at the table could interfere
he carried him over to the railing of
the pier and dropped the midget horse
rider into the water, about 15 feet be
low. "I Jist wont f see if de little

as well as he kin ride a horse.' said the
waiter, quietly watching the jockey
