The rap d Improvement made in pro
d icin? tbe trotter during the last 30 years
finds no parallel in the history of breed
tag science, stj the current Horseman.
The lofty point of excellence 'reached in
this the second year of the last dtcide of
the century was beyord the vision even
of the dreamers of 10 tears ago. Tbe
long ieign of Maud 3. demonstrates the
greatness of her performance of six years
sgo. Tbe feat tbat defied improve
ment in blood, in tracks and in training
for six years was a mighty one, and it
odds all tbe more gloiy to the one that
surpassed it. Only Ave j ears ago the
first tbrte-year old stallion, Patron,
crossed tbe 2:20 line, but while he was
s'Jll a young horse. Ax tell, at the same
age, trotted in 2:12. Four years ago 2:18
was the champion mark for three-year
olds, but in two set sons it wss reductd
to 2:101. Atthe close of 1889, 2:16 was
the four-year old record, but when the
autumn leaves of 1890 fell, the
mark was down to 2:10 . For eight
years the five-year old record made by
J y Eye-See stood ubeaten, but today we
hve one five-year-old with a record of
2:08, another with a record of 2:09 and
another with a record of 2.0)9 From
1881 to 18S9 tbe stallion record stood at
2:13J In 1 889 it was reduced to 2:12,
and now we have tbeae stallion recoids
all below the champion maik of only two
years ago Ailerton, 2 09J; Nelson, 2:10;
Palo Alto. 2:10; Stamboul, 2:11, ana Del
march. 2:11 J. From 18S7 until 1890 tte
yearling record stood at 2 311. then it
dropped to 2:29 J. and now it is 2:26J.
From 1SSI to 1888 tbe two-jear-old re
cord was 2:21. In the latter year it was
cut to 2:18, but now, 10 years after tbe
triumph of Wildfl iwer, Anon reduces the
mark of her successor to 2:14) .
These figures are the landmarks of pro
(trees prodigious, murvelaus and unparal
leled in breeding for speed. But the
most wonderful performance of all, great
er than tbe all-aged and three-tear old
records of Sunol, the stallion record of
Ailerton, or the five-year old record of
Nancy Hanks, is tbat dazz ing mile of tbe
two-year old stallion Arion. when be
trotted the Stockton track in 2:11, only
one half a second beyond tbe allegtd
stallion record of Maxey Cobb, tbat de
fied the assaults of all comers for five
years. We do not believe that any rec
ord now on the books is invincible; we
recognize tbat the progress of the past is
but an earnest of the progress of the
coming years, but we shall expect to see
the two-year old record, 2:14, and tbe
tbrce-year-old record. 2:10J, endure lon
ger than any other of the present cham
pion figures, and the former seems cer
tainly tbe more nearly invincib'e of the

At Harper's theatre tomorrow night.
Manager Montrose will present one of
the most refined entertainments tbat has
been seen at tbe theatre this season. Alba
Ileywood and his peerless company will
give a programme which will iaclude
some or Air. ueywoou s inimitable im
personations and there will also be musi
cal selections by tbe artists of Mr. Hey
wood's company and other interesting
features. Tbe Indianapolis Journal says
of tbis entertainment:
Alba Ileywood is a versatile artist in
character sketches. Indetd it would be
bard to find bis equal in "old lady" puts,
and the "boy" set is sn oddity peculiar
to Mr. Heywood's original humor. H'8
o'.ntr aeimeations and comic songs are
p'easicg and laughable. Mies Flora
Drescber tbe violin solist, takes leader
ship among American ladies who have
chosen tbe violin. Her execution is mar
velous, and there is to be noticed in ber
playing a delicacy of grace of movement.
Dewey Heywood, flutist, takes first rank.
His rendition of "Come Back to Erin."

pass of his instrument, there wss not to
be discovered a falsity in tbe beautiful
theme of tbe old Irish melody nor in tbe
