already received insure the finest live stock
and agricultural exhibition ever offered in
the northwest, while the field and
track sports provided are ou
a scale of magnificence never be
fore attempted in the state, not
excepting even the brilliant efforts of Old
Thaumatnrgus himself in the past. In
addition to the speed trials, trotting, pao
ing and running on each one of the six
days of the fair, there are also provided
most attractive field sports and maneuvers
for each day . Monday is to be children's

see our Minnesota flyers almost unani
mously represented, as well as many from
otfier states. All communications making
entries or for information should be ad
dressed to Chas. H. Clarke, secretary.
State Fair Races.
\\ c again call attention to the fact that
entries for the classes reopened for the
state fair races, close Saturday next, the
18th, at 12 midnight. The classes reopened
are for 2-year-olds, 4-year-olds and under,
2:36, 2:29, free for all Minnesota stallions,
free for all pacer?, and double teams, trot
ters or pacers. When re
opened, four entries had been
received in the 4-year old and under, 2:36
and 2:29 classes, and these will undoubted
ly fill as most likely will also the 2-year
old class, leaving the free for all pacing,
double team and f reef or all Minnesota stall
ions to be substituted by other attractions
which will be announced early in the com
ing week.
Intelligence from Owatonna is that the
buildings are rapidly approaching "comple
tion, and that they will be ready for
the reception of stock and other exhibits
several days before the opening day of
the fair, Monday, September 3d. The
rush of applicants for space is unparallel
ed in the history of the society, every nook
and corner of the grounds, the stalls
for cattle and horses, pens
for s&£gi&s4jßwine, and space in the ex
hibjflS Snngs being engaged.
[email protected]|fe. beneficial featu res of the
fair'wTll bqßveral public sales of blooded
stock. One of the most important of
these will be that to be made Friday, Sep
tember 7, of short horn cattle and Poland-
China swine, by John A. Cole, of Hustis
ford, Wis. The cattle to be offered belong
to three popular families: The Frantics,
same foundation as the Belle Duchesses,
Fennel Duchesses, Filberts, Fidgets and \
Fletchers, and the Floras and Miss Wiley's, j
the same foundation as the London Duch- j
esses. The cattle to be sold have been j
kept in good breeding condition, the fe
males having had no grain since grass
grew, and the bulls have never been fed on |
heavy grain, their grain feed being mostly
oats and barley. The short horns to be
sold are the get of Baron Gwynne 9th,
18,940; Mayflower 2d, 27,241; Duke
Of Brookhurst, 45,793; Earl of Antrim, 35,
--359, and Spring Brook, 32,787. The
swine are pure and well bred specimens of
Poland Chinas, eligible to or recorded in
all the records, the sows in pig to the
grand boar Lord Duffield, 1,751. The sale
will afford Minnesota breeders an oppor
tunity to secure some extra good stock.
Horse. Portraiture.
A number of the equine beauties that
have in the past four years been purchased
by Com. Kittson, have been portrayed on
canvas by some of the most noted animal
painters in the country, the whole forming ,
a galaxy of as spirited and life like paint- !
ings as can be found in any similar col
lection.
The number comprises a pictare of each
of the following animals: Yon Arn
im, Lady Rolfe, Sannie G.. and Spots
wood, all by Scott, and a large and beauti
ful painting by Gross, wherein the stallion
Revenue is represented as being driven to
harness, by Mr. B. D. Woodmaneee, super
intendent of Midway park. The portrayal
of both horse and driver is faithfal to life.
There is also among the collection another
fine picture of Sannie 6. painted by the
artist Hayes. The gentleman is now a
resident of Minneapolis, and has lately
completed two very fine paintings for the
collection which now among others
decorate the office of the palatial sta
ble at Midway. The first is a bijou of a
picture representing the fa
mous mare So So, standing in
the foreground of a most beautiful
landscape, wherein the beauties of sky and
earth are most happily blended. The por
trayal of the animal in the picture is true
to life, showing the mare in all her grand
proportions, to an exactness seldom ob
served by animal painters, not deviating
where a little flattery would add to the
beauty of the painting. The other paint
ing lately finished by Hayes, is a true repre
sentation of the grand stable at Midway,
a front view, before which are grouped visi
tors, horses, attended by their grooms, etc,
not omitting the proverbial terrier, whose
companionship seems to be indis
pensable to the happiness of [many high
bred horses. The main figure in the fore
ground is the famous stallion Blaokwood,
Jr., who is represented as earnestly view
ing the surroundings on being released
from his confinement within the building.
On the left and to the rear of Blaokwood,
is standing the peerless young stallion,
Revenue, an excellent representation of
the original. Further to the rear, and on
the right of the picture, a groom is hold
ing by his bridle rein, the beautiful young
stallion Spotswood, son of Blackwood,
Jr., which representation is an exact model
of the horse — a much better one in fact,
being more true to life than his portrait
by Scott. These paintings have been ele
gantly framed in uniformity with others,
of which they are most worthy in compan
ionship, the whole forming a most valua
ble collection, not only as faitnful repre
sentations of noted and valuable animals,
but on the principle that things of beauty
are a joy forever, and in the enjoyment of
which when occupying the elegant room,
the walls of which they decorate, Superin
tendant Woodmansee is to be congratu
lated.
Grand Old I'arole,
Parole, owned by Peirre Lorillard, is
without a doubt the most successful race
horse ever produced in this country. In
answer to a correspondent the New
York World gives the following sketch
of the career of the grand old horse:
In answer to the above, the World regrets its
inability to spare an entire page of the paper
for a history of Parole and hi 6 achievements. No
American bred horse erer ran in as many races
as Parole, both in England and America. la
fact, it is doubtful if any horse ever foaled ever
appeared as frequently in pnblic as Mr. Loril
lard's and the public's old fa»orite. He was
foaled at Chestnut Hill, near Philadelphia, in
1873, was sold a yearling at Barker's, in this
city, in 1874, and first ran at Monmouth Park
on July 8, 1875, when he won the July
stakes from Mr. Belmont'e Freebooter,
the late H. P. McGrath's Bryen and J. A. Grin
stead's Knapsack in I:l7}£. Captain Coeter
acted as starter, and used, as was the custom
then, a drum. Sinoe that time Parole has been
constantly before the public, and that his ca
reer has been successful will be seen at once by
the following table:

The races ran in 1879, and tea out of
the fourteen in 1880 were run in England, the
other four were run in the United States and
wore wins. The principal stakes won include
the July, August, Saratoga and Kentucky
stakes, when a two-year-old . On the occasion
of his winning the Kentucky stakes The World
said: "He (Parole) is the best yet seen for all
weather. He won the Saratoga stakes in the
mud; to-day (August 10, 1875,) he won on a fast
track, running a mile in time equal to the best on
record — made by Aristides at Baltimore last
autumn, when the mile was run in 1:44%" As
a three-year-old he won the All Aged (now the
Excelsior) and the Sequel at Saratoga, and the
All Aged at Jerome park. When four years old
ho won the Woodburn and Maturity stakes at
Jerome and the Cup and Summer handicap at
Saratoga. The next year he won the Baltimore,
Monmouth and Saratoga cups, which
performances induced Mr. Lorillard
to send Parole to England,
where he won in 1879 the Newmarket handicap,
the City and Suburban and Great Metropolitan
handicaps at Epsom, the Great Cheshire handi
cap and the Epsom gold cup. None of the races
won in 1880 included any of the important
fixtures. In 1881 Parole won the Westchester
cup and Manhattan handicap at Jerome park,
since which his victories have been exclusively
handicaps and purses which have as a rule,
closed the day previous to the race being run .
The above simply represents Parole's public
work . What he has done in private has been
fully as useful, if not as productive. For tho
last two years he has been used as the school
master for the two-year-olde at Rancocas, and
with Feakes on his back he has led nearly all of
them in their gallops, frequently running three
furlongs, half a mile and five furlongs to a sec
ond of the time 6et, and it was duo entirely to
his having "led" so much in that class of work
that when compelled to run behind at Jerome
Park last June he fretted and sulked.

Aranza, recently returned from Eng
land, made her initial race at Monmonth
Park, Saturday, the 4th, in a three-qnarter
mile dash, which she won.
J. I. Case denies the widely
circulated report that he had pur
chased the sensational pacer, John
ston, record 2:11%, for $25,000.
Mr.Carl Gutherz, the well known portrait
painter, brother-in-law of Gen. Mark D.
Flower,is going to try his hand at a portrait
of Com . Kittson's pacer, Little Brown Jug,
record 2:11%.
The Spirit envoy at Buffalo reports Dan
Woodmansee as saying: "I think so well
of Witherspoon in her present condition
that I am ready to match her single hand
ed against St. Jolien, Edwin Thorne or
Trinket."
The New York Sportsman says "Midgely
i (Com. Kittson's jockey) thinks he has a
good filly in Issaquepa. He says he is not
afraid of the nobility, not even the
Duohess. We trust, for Frank's sake, he is
net mistaken."
The bay stallion Maxey Cobb, 2 :20^, by
his performances thus far the present sea
son, is showing himself to be about the
best, if not the best aoa of Happy Medi
um. His dam is a mare by Jupiter, son of
Long Island Black Hawk.
The old race horae Mintzer, formerly
owned by the late Dr. Mintzer, of this city,
kas been put to jumping, making his ini
tial race at Monmouth park last week in a
spin of one mile and three-quarters over
seven hurdles, finishing seventh with one
horse behind him.
The black stallion Pioneer, bred in
Kentucky by Gen. W . T. Withers, has been
sold to James A . Roberts, Melbourne,' Au
stralia. Pioneer was foaled May 16, 1880,
sired by Cassius M. Clay, Jr., dam Ellen

The Chicago Driving Park club has an
nounced the opening of two rich stakes
for 1884 and 1885, being the Northwestern
stallion stake for 1884 for three-year-olds,
and the Great Northwestern etallion stakes
of 1885 for three-year-olds, now yearlings.
Among the designated stallions is Commo
dore Kittson's Alarm.
Mr. B. Beaupre did not keep the little
bay pacing mare Ada 8., which he con
tracted for as a mate to Frankie B. Opon
being hitched double the mare showed
some signs of vicioHsness and so she was
returned . He is now driving Frankie B.
and Black Fraak, who are doing some fast
work, going quarters in better than 2:30.
The advocates of thoroughbred in the
trotter have had their faith in their theory
greatly strengthened by the performance
of the bay mare Maggie F, who feot third
position in the 2:29 class at Pittsburg,
winning the second heat in 2:26. Her
breeding is given as by Newry, thorough
bred son of Lexington, dam an apparently
well-bred mare that her owner claims as
thoroughbred, with a running record of
1:47.
"Vigilant" in The Spirit, in denying a
a rumor to the effect that the Monmouth
Park association contemplated forming a
stock company, says we find, however, that
Com. Kittson and other gentlemen have
beoome members of the association and
am informed that any reputable turfman,
who follows the sport as a sport, will be
welcomed as a member, the idea being to
encourage the breeding and racing of
thoroughbreds and to keep the sport pure.
The "horse sharks" recently locating in
St. Paul, are no "slouches," whatever else
may be said of them. Headed off in one
direction, they take a new departure, al
ways coming up smiling. They have
now commence* advertising in the truly
good Minneapolis Tribune, alternating
their ads. with the truly wicked P. P . It's
a good combination to play, and if they
don't catch suckers it will not be their
fault.
The Breeders' Gazette concludes an arti
cle under the caption "How the winners
are bred," with the following sentence: "It
is trotting blood that wins trotting raoes,
and when the horses have finished their
journey from Chicago to the Atlantic,
and the Gazette list of winners is comple
ted, the truth of this remark will be even
more fully appreciated than now." Breed
ers will do well to keep this truth in
mind when making breeding selections.
Mr. R. S. Piper, well known to Minne
sota horsemen as the former driver of
Capt. Herod and other horses belonging
to ffm. Veazie, Marine Mills, Washington
county, is at present in charge of the track
Chippewa Falls, Wis., where he has Borne
thirteen horses and colts belonging to
himself and others, among them a brown
Btallion, 6 years, 15 hands, 1,000 pounds,
four white stockings, by Swigert, dam un
known, that is very promising, having
shown 2:31 on the half-mile track.
Chirm & Morgan's stable of racers, which
proved such a formidable one at the South
ern and Western meetings, seems to have
gotten completely out of form since reach
ing th« East. Markland, who was an easy
winner of several good raoes at Chicago,
has bten beaten by some very moderate
horses, indeed, at Monmouth Park, and the
other members of the string which have
been started have shown no better, the
caase, it is said, being a throat affection
contracted sinoe arriving in the East.
Mr. D. Swigert, proprietor of the Elmen
dorf stud, Lexington, Ky., has purchased
the celebrated English stallion Prince
Charles, for an out cross on his Lexington
mares. Prince Charlie is 17 years old, is by
Blair- Athol, from Eastern Princess by Sur
plioe, son of Touchstone and Crucifix, etc.
He is a rich chestnut, with a blaze face,
stands 16:33^ hands, and is the most suc
cessful racer ever brought from England,it
being almost impossible at the time of his
withdrawal to find anything that could
beat him .
The average time at the Cleveland trot
ting meeting was never equaled. Forty
heats were trotted at an average of 2:20 1-5
te the mile, and thirteen heats were paced
at an average of 2:18 9-13 to the mile.
The average of the fifty -three heats trotted
and paced was 2:19 45-53. Never before
has 2:20 been beaten in the average of
a four days' meeting, and this one
was protracted to five days. Jay Eye See
dropped his record to 2:lsj^, Phallas to
2:ls>£, Wilson to 2:16& Director to 2:17,
Fannie Witherspoon to 2:\T%, Clemmie
G. to 2:18^ and Sleepy Joe to 2:iy} 4 .
The Fergus Falls Telegram, printed at
the home of Matt. Laib, owner of the stal
lion Selkirk, 2:2i>^, denies the statement
oopied into the Globe last week
from the Chicago Horseman, to the
effect that the stallion was
on a ringing tour in the south under the
name of Dick West. The Telegram says
the stallion is now in that city, and has
been all the season. He is now 17 years
old, and Mr. Laib stands ready to back
him against any trotting stallion of his
age in the state.
Mr. Milton H. Sanford, connected with
the running turf since the opening of
Jerome park in 1866, died at Newport, R.
1., on the 3d inst. He was the second
Amerioan to try the experiment of sending
Amerioan racers across the ooean to com
pete with the English thorough
bred on his own ground,
his first shipment being in the
autumn of 1875, in which was included
Preakness, Mate, Bay Final and a lot of
yearlings, the stable being maintained un
til 1881, when fast failing health caused his
abandoning further efforts. He was a
native of Massachusetts, born in 1812.
"Vigilant" in The Spirit gives currency
to the following: '"It is feared that all is
not well with Leonatus. He broke away
and threw his rider at exercise, a week ago,
and ran a mile and a half, pulling up
slightly lame, according to the statements
of witnesses, but Mr. Morgan and McGin
tfs his trainer, soouted the idea. The colt
failed to face Parole on Saturday . That
constituted the first rumble of the storm.
But sinoe then he has been miesed from
the morning gallops, and all sorts of ru
mors are rife. His party still deny any
tking is the matter, but appearances oause
the trainers to fear somet hing is wrong.'
The Spirit throws light upon the breed
ing of the sensational pacer Richball. as
follows: There have been several different
versions of the breeding of the sire of the
sensational pacer, Richball, and one of our
friends in Columbia county takes the pains
to send us one of his old bills, dated at
Taghkanic, April 16, 1856. The name is
King Pharaoh (not Faro) and he is repre
sented to be by American Star (not Seely's,
as we had supposed), but a son of Mingo,
he by Eclipse. King Pharaoh's dam was
by Bay Duroc, he by Duroo, and his
grandam was Reuben Lapman's black
mare, by Bishop's Hambletonian, her dam
by old Herod.
Read the announcement of the
Southern Minnesota association in
another column, and then commence
to make up your exhibits and
entries for the speed purses, which close a
week from Saturday, August 25. The lib
eral sum of $7,100 is to be paid out in
premiums and purses. The exhibition
follows the week after the state fair,
September 10th to 15th inclusive, and with
the state fair at Owatonna and the north
western exposition at Minneapolis, forms
the grandest and most attractive fair cir
cuit ever organized in the northwest. For
particulars address C. Van Campen, secre
tary, Roohester, Minn.
Leonates mast be a pampeted equine
patrician, aocording to the following re
port in the Spirit from Saratoga: "Jack
Chirm says a trio of immaculate dudes ap
proaohed Mr. Morgan, at the branch, and
begged to inquire how the great son of
Longfellow was prepared for his races,
was he given food different from that of
common thoroughbreds, and surely he
didn't sleep in an ordinary plebeian horse
stall . "No, no," responded the Kentuoki
an, without cracking a smile, "Leonatus
sleeps on an elegant feather 1 bed; he eats
nothing but green apple pie every day,
and he never misses a pie or a gallop!"
The dudes departed with an addition to
their already amazing stock of knowl
edge."
By his performance in winning the
wager in the race against A.
B. Lasher's pacer at Midway,
Friday, Mr. Mclntosh's trotting
pony gets a record of 2:44}£, while the
pacer, though doing the mile nine seconds
faster but losing the race, gets no record.
Mr. Molntosh picked up the pony in a re
cent cattle purchasing expedition in south
western Minnesota. A number of year
lings broke away from the drove and scat
tered through the woods. He borrowed the
pony to hunt them up, and while riding to
head off some of the strays, the pony
struck a trot that astonished him, and the
consequence was his purchase. He is a
Bquare and courageous trotter, and his
present record is no measure of his speed
if conditioned.
Com. Kittson's running string made four
starts at Monmonth park last week, but
were not fortunate enough to make a win
ning. The starts were the 2-year old oh. c.
Perilous by Alarmdam Delight who finished
third to Thackeray by Great Tom and King
Ernest by Cyclone; the 2-year old filly Albia
by Alarm, dam Elastic, who finished third
to Water Lily by King Alfonso, and Leo
by Duke of Magenta, (Perilous being
among those running unplaced) and the
3-year old br. f . Bric-a-Brac by imp. Bon
nie Scotland dam Ermengarde, who fin
ished seventh with two behind her in a run
of a mile and a quarter. The Spirit re
port says: "Albia ran a capital third not
making her running until the last two
hundred yards.' '
We are pleased to learn that twenty-five
of the leading citizens of Red Wing have
become owners of the Driving park prop
erty, paid off the indebtedness against the
old association, and that with clean books
and lots of energy and faith that good
luck is in store for them, are preparing the
programme for a fair and racing meeting
the fourth week in September, following
Hastings. The grounds of the association
are in many respects the finest in the state,
and its half mile track among the very
best. Bad weather followed the
old association relentlessly, hence the
financial embarrassment. The Globe
trusts the gentlemen who have now asso
ciated themselves in the enterprise,
may fare better. The programe for the
fair meeting will be out in a few days.
Notwithstanding the liberal purses offer
ed by the Manitoba turf tslnb for their fall
racing meeting, aggregating $8,000, we
fear the long distanoe will deter Minnesota
horsemen generally from putting in an
appearanoe . When the Fargo association
getß on its feet again and invites our
horsemen to accept their hospitality and
compete for the money they may hang ap
the liberality of the Manitoba
club will be liberally re
sponded to by Minnesota horsemen . The
meeting commences Sept. 11, and is to
continue four days. The parse? in which
Minnesota horses can compete are the
3:00, 2:36, 2:40, 2:29 and free to all trot
ters, purses ranging from $300 to $800;
running, two mile dash, $400; running,
half mile heats, 3 in 5, $400; running, mile
heats, 2 in 3, $400; hurdle raoe, $300; run
ning, one and a half mile dash, $300. A
special purse of $1,200 is offered for a
trial by Com. Kittson's pacer, Little Brown
Jug, to beat his record, 2;11^. Entries
close Sept . 1 .
The Omnibus Stakes at Saratoga, in
which Chirm & Morgan's great colt Leo
natus, will make his first appearance in a
race in the east, if all right, will be run Sat
urday next. As Drake Carter has beaten
both George Kinney and Barnes, the
Dwyer cracks, it would look as if Leonatus
would have an easy victory, that is, of
course,if in condition, though the knowing
ones report P. Lorillard's Pizzaro as show
ing up unusually well of late. The next
appearance of Leonatus will probably be
in the Monmouth stakes, opened by the
association to bring all the cracks to
gether, including Iroquois, the Derby win
ner, for which the entries in addition to
Iroquois, are Monitor, Eole, Pizzaro,
Barnes, George Kinney, Miss Woodford
and Leonatus. For the Select stakes, a
post sweepstakes for two-year-olds, to be
run the same day, August 25, the nomina
nators are Commodore Kittson, Clipsiana
Stable, Samuel Bryant, E. L. Lorillard, E.

The black pacing horse owned by Mr.
A . B. Lasher, of St. Paul, by his perform
ance over the mile traok at Midway, on
Saturday afternoon last, most completely
▼indicated himself from the aspersions
that have been cast upon him by the own
ers ef rival roadsters*, namely, "that al
though he is a fine looking horse and very
speedy at a short brush on the road, yet he
is not a horse of pluck and endurance,
being both unable and unwilling to pace
fast for any distance beyond a road brush."
Such has been the talk of his back cappers
in the past, which was sud
denly changed on this occasion,
when he passed under the wire, after pac
ing a mile through the mud, in 2:35^.
This performance being made without
preparation, and without before been
started to speed a full mile during hfe
present ownership, [over two years. It is
now in order for the parties who have
been foremost in underrating the horse to
name another roadster owned in St. Paul
that is capable, under like circumstances,
of repeating the performance.
The racing at Buffalo last week proved
too much of a procession in nearly all the
events to be interesting. The special free
for all was won easily by St. Julien, Fanny
Witherspoon and Trinket dividing third
and fourth money. Gem got third in the
pacing race, Richball and Lucy having
been disposed of by getting the flag in
their faces in the first heat, leaving only
Buffalo Girl, Flora Belle and Gem to finish
the race. Fanny Witherspoon did not
start in the 2:18 class, Mr. Woodmansee
electing to depend Jupon Minnie R. to
maintain the credit of the stable. The
result of the race has not reached us.
Three heats were trotted Friday, when the
race was postponed till Saturday. Of the
three heats trotted Friday, Addie Gould
took the first, and Monroe Chief the next
two, Minnte R. finishing fifth in the first,
with Santa Claas behind, and third in the
last, Santa Claus second. This week
the flyers will be at Rochester, N. V., the
Kittson'? entries being Gem in the free for
all pacing, and Fanny Witherspoon and
Minnie R. in the 2:18 olass, the first named
probably being started.

costs us nothing extra for rent or

bought directly from the factory
in case lots. It is, therefore, easy
to see why we can and do sell

an error and think because we
sell at such low prices that our
