TOMMY RAYMOND, KELL'S
PACER, KILLED AT EDOINGTON
Charles Kell, of E Igington, is
mourning the loss of Tommy Ray
mond, the well-known pacing gelding
that was entered in several races on
the Ninth street track 1his season.
Mr. Kell was on his way home Friday
night and was driving the animal with
another along the dark road not far
from home, when he met? a party with
a single rig who was driving- furious
ly toward him. In the darkness he
failed to see the other party and a
collision resulted. The horses came
together, but nothing was broken,
and after becoming' disentangled both
went on without Mr. Kell learning
who the other party was. In a short
time Tommy Raymond began acting
strangely and Mr. Kell made an exam
ination and found that the shaft of
the otner rig had entered his breast.
The animal died in the harness. He
laid a mark of about 2:"0 and was
probably worth :H).

THE PROPOSED BREWERY
The movement in which fri-city. cap

given up and the forces that have
been laboring to keep that institution
out of the city. are. satisfied. The fail
ure to carry oait.vt-he project, it is
said, was not" diie'to the opposition
