BEST YET GIVEN
Horses Entered at Aledo Will
Go to State Fair Fol
The racing at 61st annual Mercer
county fair to be held at Aledo Sept.
15, 16, 17 and IS, is expected to be
the best trotting meeting to be held in
this section of Illinois in the month
of September. Requests for stable
reservations and entry blanks are
coming in so lively that Secretary
E. R. Petrie declares the big equip
ment of barns for the racers will
be filled to overflow. Not in years
has the prospect for such a field of
horses been so bright for the Mer
cer county fair.
Some of the crack mile track
horses of the Illinois and Iowa cir
cuits and practically all of the horses
from the half-mile tracks -are headed
for Aledo and many of them will ship
from there direct to the Illinois state
fair at Springfield the following week.
Special train service on both the
Burlington road and the Rock Island
Southern will bring thousands of peo
ple to this great county fair, while hun
dreds of automobiles will carry many
more. A tract of 15 acres is provided
for the parking of the autos.
No less interesting will be the large
exhibits of cattle, in the new cattle
pavilion and the horse show. These
departments are always prominent at
Mercer county fair because they in
clude herds from a half dozen states.
This year there will be on the ground
a number of herds which have been
winning at state fairs In the middle
west. A special provision has been
made which will permit the herds
showing at the Mercer county fair
to enter four days late at the Illi
nois state fair, thus insuring a com
plete show at the Aledo fair.

ball has ofttimes been bestowed upon
John J. McGraw, and it may be a fit
ting name at that. Like the Napoleon
of old McGraw baa met his Waterloo.
McGraw claims that at least four of
the National league umpires this year
are not competent to fill their posi
tions. An assertion doubtless brought
on by the fact that the Giants are not
having such an easy time this year as
in past seasons.
It Is said that Jones will draw down
$50,000 for managing the Sloufeds for
three years, but anyone who Is con
demned to St. Louis for 36 months Is
entitled to twice that much.
II Blue Sox Thank Moline. II
The Davenport Blue Sox can thank
the Moline ball club if Pretzeltown
wins the pennant in the Three-Eye
league this year, and there now seems
every prospect that it will do so, be
cause the Plow Boys have practically
put the Distillers out of the running in
the race. Peoria has been the run
ner up all season and for the past
month the team has been within hail
ing distance of the flag. But now
cbmes Moline, just when the Distillers
are but one and a half games behind
the lead, and put the kibosh on Peoria
with four straight wins, while Daven
port was grabbing a couple from the
Watchmakers. The Blue Sox hold
such a comfortable lead that they will
have to lose at least two-third3 of their
remaining games while Peoria must
win nearly all of theirs in order to
beat Davenport out of the pennanL

Danny Goodman whom you all know,

greatest scrappers the lightweight

knocked out. The scrap between"TJan

PLAN A PROGRAM
FOR LABOR DAY
Race Meet and Horse Show May
Be Held at Exposition
Dan Flynn, manager of Exposition
park, left this morning in his car for
Galesburg, where he will spend the
day at the races in progress there and
make an effort to secure some of the
horses for a race meet at Exposition
park on the afternoon of Labor day.
Dan plans to stage two races of five
heats each but has not decided upon
the time as yet. They will probably
be a 2:15 and a 2:25. Several good
horses will be secured and a splendid I
program put on if Fiynn's present
plans materialize. If no race meet
is held it is probable that the promoter
will arrange a couple of boxing match
es in connection with the Ward Horse
show, which will be held at the park
on that day.
