STAR POINTER IS KING.

In 1:50 1-4.
The question whether or not it is
possible for a light harness horse to
pace a mile better than two' minutes
was settled in the affirmative last
Saturday at Boston, Mass., by Star
Pointer, a Maury county bred and
raised horse, ftoing a mile in 1 io'J1.
A press dispatch reports the event as
Star Pointer, at the Readville
track, took the champion crown
away from the New York pacing
stallion, John It. Gentry. The con
ceded king of harness horses to-day
engaged in a tilt against the walch,
and when it was over the two min
ute mark was a thing of the past by
just three quarters of a second. It
was a royal wind up to the greatest
grand circuit meeting of the year.
The day was perfect for a record
breaking attempt. The track, in the
opinion of the horsemen, was faster
at the July meeting, but it was in
better shape to-day than at any time
during the week. The heat was
oppressive and not a breath of air
McClary drove with more than a
snug hold of the pacer. With his
big, easy stride, the stallion stepped
the first two furlongs in just 30
seconds, a two minute clip. A
mighty cheer went up from the
grand" stand as a half thousand
watches caught the half in :59s4'.
The three, fourths in 1:29 caused an
Around the turn the pacer stepped
a little to the outside, but the waver
was for but a fraction of a second,
and once in the stretch the horse
moved perfectly. The driver says
that at the distance Pointer ap
peared to be to his limit, but when
he cslled on him and the runner
came along, Pointer forgot that he
had been beating the two minute
mark, and responded with a burstof
speed right at the wire. It was not so
rapid as to cause a sensation, but it
was sufficient to make the last quar
ter in :30.l4, and the horse 9eemed to
be within himself.
The two minute mark was beaten
three quarters of a second. Mc
Clary was hoisted onto the should
ers of his friends and taken from the
sulky to the stand. The crowded
grand stand went wild, and horse,
driver and owner received an ova
tion. Scores of watches got the
time as announced by the judges,
andC. V. Marks, of Chicago, who
saw his greatest rival to Joe Patchen
widen the gap between the horses,
declared that if anything the mile

To set about successful poultry

to observe the following:

from the pullets, but to select the
best layers as pullets and breed from
them the following year. Only
after several years' careful selection
for laying qualities may any attempt
to begin on a larger scale be made.
Go to no unavoidable expense in
buildings and such ; they may look
well, but are of no real value.

A big acreage of fall sown wheat
is being planned for by many far
mers. We say, don't. Present and
prosperous high prices will probably
stimulate an enormous sowing of
wheat this fall and next spring, not
only in the United States, but
throughout the world. Just this
was done after the high prices of
".tl-2, and it caused a world's over
production of wheat which has just
been reduced to normal proportions
by a short crop in foreign countries
this year, following a reduced yield
last season. Low prices are as like
ly to follow big supplies of wheat
next year as during the past few
years. American Agriculturist.
