After we passed the shelf In .the

was no further trouble. I gave Annn

Mrs. True by the hand; Malle and I

to my arm. Once she stumbled, but I
caught her; after that I steadied hot

she looked up nt me and smiled, but

how to glvo Imp the scent, and told
her In a whisper, how to start him i.n

pointing at the breakdown, sbo jumped
up and cried:
"Seek, Imp! Seek!"
Ho looked up at her with a knowing
glance, but stood wagging his tail;

believes thero is not a shadow of
doubt as to his ability to have trotted
in 2:07 or 2:07 1-2 on a good track, as
he was one of tho best of finishers. Tho
Stamboul raco is a strong factor to
day, ho not having as yet sired a pacer.
E. II. Harrlman paid $41,000 for him
at auction In the old American Insti
tute Building In tho winter of 1892-93.
The horse died laBt summer at Goshen,
N. Y very suddenly.
Goldsmith Maid was an old marc, as
nge goes today with horses, when she
started trotting; Doxtcr was erratic at
first; St. Jullen a famous highflyer for
several years, Rarus one that caused
no ono trouble, yet did not come to his
speed early; Dcnzetta seemed a won'
der, although Imperfect as to gait,
Macey always using a single blinker
on her bridle.

McKtnney's sensational filly, Zephyr,

beautifully galted. Lord Derby was
offered to tho covered track contingent

work Ed. Geers put in with the long-
legged bay fellow. He took a record
of 2:07 In his first season 1900 and
looked to be superior to The Abbot by
a second or so.

Geers has never driven a hoppled pac

pace to tho trot and Hclr-at-Law from
tho trot to tho pace. The trainer of
touay Bomenow goes out racing any
horso with a chanco to win a part of
a purse whether he wears honnles or
ungainly rigging. Almost any balanc

There aro anxious hours ahead for
any ono who undertakes rapid speed
making. At 2 tho horses may bo per

Horses that can repeat In 2:10 several

Horses at tho races are schooled to the

a day when that horse, trotter or pac
er, was not at tho 2:50 line, travelled
every way except the right one, and
somebody had to befriend him and
study It all out. The colt handlers

the rural districts aro termed, do far
moro brilliant deeds than they receive
full credit for and are the ones who
