FOUNDED A BIG FAMILY;
Mambrino Chief, the Progenitor of a Sturdy Race of Fast Trotters, James H. Clay's Ressonsfor Tald*ur the Great Sire Back to Kentucky. An #etertaining Talk With We Sea on the Subject- An Experiment With Jersey Cattle. James B. Clay, when asked this week re garding the statement going the rounds of the press that the late Gen. Singleton, owner of the trotter Silverbeels, was paid forfeit by Hon. James B. Clay in a match made between Mambrino Chief and Silver heels, said: "My father, James B. Clay, brought the first trotting horses to Ken. tacky, they being Mambrino Chief, Tar lioni and Vermont )Blaek Hawk, and the white mare Polly, called the New York Mare. I-have seen the statement going the rounds that my father paid forfeit to Gen. Singleton in the celebrated match race. Gen. singleton and my father were the very best of friends, and the match which I think was for $10,000 a side, $5,000 forfeit, grew out of a friendly rivalry be tween the two men. We had a fairly good track at Ashland, and on it Mambrino Chief was trained. I think that the late Dr. Herr did some of the training. A short time before the day set for the race Gen. Singleton paid father the forfeit,, he believing, no doubt, that Silverheels would be defeated. Father arranged two other matches for Mambrino Chief, one with St. Lawrence and the other with Pilot, Jr., and in each of these races he also received forfeit money from the owners. The owner of St. Lawrence not only paid forfeit, but presented father with a beautifull Ally by his horse. The day before the match with Silverheels, or Pilot, Jr., I forget which, Mambrine Chief trotted a mile over our track at Ashland in 2:28, and on the day of the match he trotted the Kentocky assoeia tion running coerce, which, as you know, has a considerable hill. in 2:88. "Mambrino Chief never went out of the state of Kentacky after having been brought here by my father. He made four or Ave seasons at Ashland, when father sold him to Willis Jones, of Versailles, Ky., who made one season and part of another with him when he died. My father believed that by crossing Mambrino Chief on therough bred mares he would lay the foundation of a great trotting family, and it was with this idea in view that he bought snob mares as Utilla, by imp. Margrave, one of the highest bred mares in the stud book; Susan, by imp. Eclipse; Fay, by imp. Yorkshire, dam by imp. Fury, by Priam, and Heads-I-San, by imr. Glencoe. The latter mere is the granddam'at.the noted race horse Sprinagbok. The first colt Mambrino Chief ever got in Kentucky was oat of the mare Utilla, and he was presented to Mr. Thorne of New York. Father called him Ashland, but I think his name was changed and that he ilgares extensively th the trotting stud book. The price paid for Mambrino Chief was $4,000, and Taglioni and Polly cost $1,000 each. Kentucky breeders thought father was making a wildcat speculation in laying oat so much money for a bread of horses of which so little was known in this state at that time. He sold Mambrino Chief, however, to Mr. Jones for $5,020, and the sales of trotting horses that were held at Ashland, although they took place daring the war, when knsiness of all kinds, and especially the breeding of horses, was greatly demoralized, show that his jadg shent was good. Had not untoward cir curuetances occurred I feel satisfied that Ashland would have made aname for itself as the cradle of the trotting hbrse business in the west. "It was not alone my father's fondness for trotters that caused him to import them into this state. His venture had a broader foundation than that. His idea was to improve the breeds of horses and other live stock; and in this connection it might be well to state that he brought eight head of Jersey eattle to this city as early as 1856 or 57-the first ever imported into Kentucky. -There is an amusing incident connected with his Jersey cattle venture which shows how times change. We made more butter than we could use after the tows had be come domiciled in their new quarters, and mother told the coachman to take a lot of it inte Lexington and sell it at the market house. The cows had been eating grass and, like all Jersey butter, that which the coachman had for sale was a beautiful deep yellow. Prospective customers would smell of it and taste it and than shake their heads and say: 'It's too highly colored. You must have used some coloring matter.' The coachman protested that it was nothing but pure butter, without an foreign sab stance whatever; but he brought the butter back home without selling a single pound. Mother had the butter packed up and sent it to one of my uncles in Louisville, who used it on the table. This gives you an idea of the prejudice that existed at that time against anything new' in Kentucky, and you will agree with me that it is no wonder that hares-breeders thought father was going daft when he brougrht such costly animals its Mamntirino Chief, Taglioni, tet.. to Kenturky for the purpossi of breeding." Mr. Clay's father was a sun of Henry Clay. the orator and statesman, who was himaelf an importer of fine horses and jacks. Young Mr. Clay inherits ali his grandfather's love for line elect; hot his breeding ventures have been confined prin cipally to thoiroughhred hatrse, in which line he is making an enviable rrputation. To his father, however, the trotting horse breeders of Kentucky ewe a debt of erati tuds the can never repay, for, with the name5 of Mambrino Chief reuroved from trottinrr horee hiatory, the old common wealth would cease to be the queen of i breeding etates.-I'liladelphia Record. flarkisa's Arnica talve.

WASI;twTo2ro May 9,-One of the mosl veatiRous 4nestoius the sertery of the in, terior and the commissioner of Indisa affairs are frequently celled upon to solve is bow to send back to the reservations the Indian delegations whiok visit Washington, Within the past week Ave of these delega. tionq have arrived in Washington for the purpose of -laying before the great father supposed grievaseas for adjustment. At the eonelasion of sbor4 conferences with the Indian ofcleas the Indians fled themselves no wiser respeeting the laws which the Indian eommissieaer cannot dis regard, and whioh the Indians apparently will never comprehend, any more than be fore they left, fir reservations. They find themselves i aehiagton without money to pay their board, and having made no provision for returning to their homes in variably call upon the Indian bureau foe aid. Consideration of this questien has been necessary so eften of late that the commis. sioner has referred the matter to lecretary Noble, with a view to having it dfilnitely determined what coarse he shall hereafter pursue. The last ease of this kind was the request of the Chippewa Indians from the Leech Lake, Minn., reservation to be given $10,000 of the money appropriated by con grase as indemnity for losses sustained by them on eccount of the everflowing of the government dam at the headwaters of Leech lake some years ago. Before this delegation left their reserva tions they were notiled by the Indian com missioner that their presence in Washing ten was unnecessary, and that if it were determined to make the trip they must ar range to pay their own expenses, including the return trip. Despite this warning, the Indians having no money to pay their way back from Washington, asked for an advance ot money due the Chippewa tribe in cemmon which the commissioner did not feel warranted in granting. The Indiana appealed to Secretary Noble, who, while unwilling, for fear they should eventually be sent to the poorhouse, re lnutantly directed that the money be ad vanced them as the only way out of the predicament. SOLDIERS DRESSED VP. Enlisted Men 4a the Army Will Wear Cravats Hereafter WAsHenoNON, May 2.-The enlisted men in the army are to be furnished with cra vats, the fiet they have had since the days when the military wore stocks. When General Hollabird was quartermaster-gen eral he made his memory dear to the pri vate soldier by adding a linen shirt to the wardrobe of the enlisted man and giving that worthy a linen collar when he wanted to dress up. There was a good deal of dis enssion by the present quariermaster-gen eral when he succeeded General Hollabird, as to whether the soldier should pin his collar to his shirt or whether the army should be put to the enermous expense of purchasing eollar buttone. The sabjecs brought up the matter of abandoning the linen shirt entirely. It was finally decided, however, to retain the shirt and provide cravats extra. The latter will be made of black silk and, as a starter, 20,000 ties will be purchased. The announcement of the addition to the soldiers' uniform will soon be made in general orders by General Scho field. A Desperate Pickpocket Killed.

Remarkable Experience of John Turk, a PIo. neer of Helena. 89 Doses Taken at Once Did Not Kill, but Succeeded In Curing Him. Fohn Turk, Cascade, Montana, took 80 deuse of a so-called "ban Franoisco Quack's Medicine," at once, and was not killed, as promised by rival doctors. In Septem ber, 1888, he called on Dr. A. C. Stoddart, visiting hysiolan for Dr. Liebie & (Co., Liebig World Dispensary, San Francisco and Butte City who had offices for two weeks at the Merchants Hotel, Helena. Mr. Turk had suffered for years with Rheumatism, Impurity of Blood and effects of mercurial Salivation. He had four of the best physicians in Montana attend him, and they failed to relieve him. Dr. Stod dart examined him, seat his prescriptions to Liebig Dispensary, San Francisco. to be prepared. After Dr. Stoddart left, Mr. Turk met the local deetors and told them what he had done. They laughed at him and said "that lan Francisco quack would kill him." He was so frightened that when the medicine from ban Francisco came he 0t the bottle upon a shelf at his house, P70 'ark attest, Helena, and it stood neg lected until December (nearly three months) while Mr. Turk suffered day and night, had net slept halt an hour at a time in years.
