It ia pa "The til '.") -' ' SPORTIIJGJEUS Garry Hermann Maj Not Start in Monday's Derby. Belief General That Brown's Colt Is Not Conditioned ALARD SCHECK IN FOIUI The Schorr's Crack Racer Shows Mile in 1 :42 Even. While Hermann Has Not W orked Ont Less Than 1 Nashville, Tenn., April 26. The Impres sion prevails among horsemen here that Garry Hermann, the Kentucky Derby fa vorite, will not be a starter in the big 3-year-old event at Churchill Downs on Monday. One prominent owner said to day that Captain Brown had bought Garry Hermann with the intention of winning the American Derby at Wash ington park, and that he had given Trainer Tucker orders not to start the son of Esher and Silk Gown in any race which would impose a penalty if he won. It is also said Tucker has written to a trainer here that Garry Hermann will not co to the post in the Kentucky Derby, but will be pointed for the American Derby according to the wish of Captain Brown. If the story is true and it has ail the earmarks of being so those who haw backed Garry Hermann in the win ter books to win the Kentucky event have just cause to criticise the owner and trainer of the colt for not announcing earlier that Garry Hermann would not be a starter. In the Louisville future book the colt's price has been forced down from 4 to 1 to even money, which is the price now laid against him. John P. Schorr, who will be represent ed in the race by either Joe Prey or Alard Soheck, and perhaps by both, is one of the trainers who believes that Garry Hermann wil not start next Mon day. T. P. Hayes said today that all re ports of the work which the colt has shown would indicate that Trainer Tucker is not hurrying him and he will not be ready to run m the Kentucky Derby. Mr. Hayes said that he had re ceived a number of letters from trainers at Churchill Downs to the effect that Garry Herann was not good, and he at tributes this idea to the fact that the colt is not ready, and that his trainer is not hurrying him with the idea of starting him in the Kentucky Derby. Garry Hermann two weeks ago worked a mile in 1:44. This is the best work ho has done. If he starts he will have a chance to win. and in order to have a chance to win he will have to be set down at least twice before Derby day, next Monday. He must be worked a mile in less than 1:42 and a mile and a quarter in less than 2:10 if Trainer Tucker intends for him to win the Derby. Alard Scheck has run miles in some thing like 1:42. "While he was beaten at Memphis three times, he has been better each time he has raced, and he is what ia known as a seasoned race horse, and if Garry Hermann is not worked faster than a miie in 1:44 at least twice between now and Derby day Scheck is sure to beat him in the Kentucky Derby, WOMEN TO RIDE ASTRIDE. Brooklyn Girl Promises Sensation at the Forthcoming Horse Show. New York. April 25. Young ladv mem bers of the Brooklyn Riding and Driving club promise a sensation at the horse show to be held across the river. They will ride astride. One of them said to day : 'This opposition to riding cross saddle is all bosh. Women do it out west; they do it in Boston. Why, I've seen well known London society leaders ride astride down the row. There is nothing immodest about it. Ail who have seen a woman ride cross saddle have been forced to admit that the sight was not at all shocking. Any woman who has ridden that way never wants to use the side saddle again. It is a safe, natural and altogether graceful position, and the young women of Brooklyn are not going to he deterred from following a sensibie fashion jut becaose a lot of old fogies bold up their hands in horror. Many a girl who rides cross saddle would be ashamed to appear in some of the bail costumes that these very particular ma trons affect." WILL NOT START IN OAK 3. Miss Bennett Will Be Given Rest and Then Race at Local Tracks. Memphis, Tenn., April 26. Miss Ben nett, G. C. Bennett's speedy 3-year-old filly, will not be a starter In the Ken tucky Oaks. Bennett stated today that he would rest his stable here two weeks and would then race exclusively at the Chicago tracks.- Miss Bennett, he said, had proved to his satisfaction that she would not go a mile, at least not this early in the year. Lady Schorr, who was injured by a kick from Duellist at the post in the Turf Congress stakes, did not have her ribs broken as wa9 re ported. She was cut to the bone on one of her ankles, but George Walker, the Schorr trainer, expects her to be en tirely recovered by the time of the running of the Oaks at Louisville. J. F. Schorr has sold Fred Hessig for $2,000. He had an offer of $S,000 for Alard Scheck, which was refused. DETROIT 14; MILWAUKEE 13. Game Won by Great Batting Rally in Ninth. Detroit. April 25. Writh the most mag nificent batting rally ever seen in Detroit, the local American league team snatched the opening game of the season from Mil waukee in the ninth inning, after the great crowd present thought that Man ager Duffy's men had won.

In the same inning the home team made a dou bel play from third to second and to first, the first double made on this dia mond this season. The Ottawa pitcher's record was better than the visitors.

CAS i OR I Tor Infanta and Children. Tfca Kind Ycu Kava Always Eougfct Bears the Signature of S7 Ex- Governor Morrill to Hare 880 Acres In Apples Farm Will Have 64,000 Trees on in Two Weeks. PLANTED ON SHARES Horticulturist and a Capitalist Form a Combine. Largest Distinctive Orchard In the United States. Leavenworth, Kas., April 26. A force of forty men, most of them veterans from the National Soldiers' home, axe at work setting out 27,000 apple trees on the farm of ex-Governor E. N. Morrill, In the southern part of i Leavenworth county. When this lot of trees is planted, which will be in two weeks, there will be 64,000 tree3 set out tn one compact body of land, making it the largest distinctive apple orchard in the United States, and, so far as known, in the world. F. W. Wellhouse, formerly a resident of Leav enworth county, has more acres in apple trees, but his orchards are scattered around, and some are even in different counties. Three years ago ex-Governor Morrill purchased SsO acres of land from ex-Senator A. Caldwell, of this city, and with Francis Goble, a horticulturist of this county, planned to make the largest apple orchard in the country. Governor Mor rill furnished the land and capital to pur chase the trees and to help pay for the labor, while Mr. Gople acts as superin tendent. It Is said that they are to share the profits equally if any are derived from the orchard, for fifteen years from the time it was lirst started. After that Governor Morrill is to have all. They ex pect that one good fruit year at any time after the next three years will bring in enough money from the orchard to pay for all the expenses of planting and car ing for the 64,tK trees. This is the fourth spring planting of trees in the Morrill orchard. From 15. 000 to 25. (XX) trees were set out each year during other spring months, but owing to the hard winter two years ago one planting of 20.OJ0 young trees died. These are all being replaced. For the planting of 27,000 trees the work of preparing the ground began last autumn. Fart of the land used, 15u acres, was "grubbed," cleared of underbrush. After the land was clear it was laid off in oblongs 16x32 feet. The "checkers' were marked by plowing from east to west and north to south last fall. Deeo listing plows were run through the fur rows from north to south when the plant ing of trees began ten days ago. Trees are shipped in by the carload and are distributed at the proper spots in wagons. After this is done men in pairs plant the trees, shoveling dirt around the roots. Veterans are used for planting, as they take better care of the trees than young men and do not skin them in shoveling or tramping down the dirt. The big torc.i of men set out l,5u0 trees a day in the grubbed'' land and as high as 3,000 a day in the old farm land. The trees are planted 80 to the acre, and when this 27,00 is set out. 800 acres will have been planted. Eighty acres more will be planted next year. "When the present planting is completed, the farm will have 12,000 Jonathan trees out in one body of 150 acres. Mr. Goble consid ers the Jonathan the best and most profitable apple to raise. It sells for more than all others and is the best for all around use. The other varieties set out are Ben Davis, Gano, Missouri Pippin, Grimes' Golden, Mammoth Black and Huntsman. The large barn. 50 feet by 150, will be turned into a cold storage plant. Ma chinery will be put in the coming sum mer to make this change, and a full apple packing jlant with cold storage will be located right within the great orchard. SHE USED A HAMMER. Junction City Woman Starts Out on Joint Smashing Tour. Junction City, Kan., April 26. Mrs. Anna Coover attempted to wreck the Exchange saloon in thi3 city Thursday. The instrument of destruction was an ordinary hammer. She was seized be fore serious damage was done. Half a dozen bar tumblers were broken in the melee.

Agatita Works Suspend Business Near Mulyane. Wichita, Kan., April 26. John W. Evans, one of the prominent farmers of Rockford township, this county, was in the city yesterday.

Write TTp of Kansas General in East ern Magazine. An appreciative review of the career of Fred Funston and the crowning achievement of his fame by the capture of Aguinaldo appears in the May issue of "The World's Work.' Summarizing the magazine article concludes: "The distance between this country and the Philippines makes the soldiers seem vague and uncertain figures. Only oc casionally when they perform some ex traordinary deed do they stand out clear and firm In the sight of the public. General Funston stands so now and gives promise of keeping the position. His rise has been rapid, almost without precedent; but it has been won by ex traordinary achievement. "Five years ago he was unknown; to day, at the age of 36, he is a brigadier general in the United States army. He has gone through the horrors of Death Valley; he has lived through a long Arctic night; he has fought for a people whom he thought oppressed; he has swum rivers, driving savage enemies before him ; he has led bloody charges, and, last of all, he has captured the leader of the Filipino Insurrection. A man who has done all these things is a man who seta the blood tingling and gives wings to the imagination." COMING DRAMATIC EVENTS.

John Murphy Learned That TwJ Wrongs Don't Make a Right John Murphy Is applying for a parole Murphy is serving a five year sentenci in the penitentiary, having pl-atW guilty to a burglary in Lincoln county. Murphy has learned the lesson that t wrongs do not make a right. He burglarized a store because, as hi was coming home from a season al shucking corn in another part of th country, he had his pocket picked of $G! of his $100 savings. The idea came tc him to maka up hia loss by robbing a store. He was not found out for trc years. When he was caught he confess ed, saved a trial and has stood his pun ishment since 1897, with never a msii against him in the prison records, in does not use liquor and he says and hm it said for him that he has no crimln U instincts, always, before and after hit burglary, working hard for his livins He seems to have taken his done man fully for yielding to a wrongful impulse. Beet Sugar Establishment For Rocky Ford Country. Chicago, April 26. The Tribune says: Negotiations have been completed in Chicago for the formation of the largest beet sugar concern in the world. A company has been organized with a cap ital stock of $5,000,000 to be known as the Arkansas Valley Sugar Beet & Irriga tion Land company. The plant of the new company is to be located in Prowers county, Colorado, in the famous Rocky Ford fruit district. A number of New Tork capitalists, including the Oxnards, the Cuttings, the Hamiltons, the Law sons and Richards of the Mercantile Trust company are interested.
