NOTES OF RACE HORSES, MANX NOTABLE TROTTERS AND PACERS IN WATER BURY. A Speedway Needed in That City- Horses - With Creditable Race Rec ords Owned In the Vicinity of New Haven Some Trotters Bred In This State. The last number of the American Horse Breeder has the following news from this city. Waterbury, Conn., was formerly one of the best places on a circuit that gen erally included about a half dozen half mile tracks, all of which were in this county. In those days pool selling was allowed on all race tracks. A chat with some of the horse owners and oth ers reveals the fact that if the anti pool law was not in force in this state, the track would have a flourishing good business, and could be credited with bringing men, money and considerable patronage to Waterbury. During a recent visit to that city I met a few of the representative horse men and learned that there are In that locality a good number of trotters and pacers that are regarded as speedy enough to warrant training and racing. These horses would be started on the local track If the circuit races were held as formerly. Morris H. Noonan, of East Main street, is one of those genal entertain ing gentlemen that it is always a pleas ure to meet. The Horse Breeder has been regularly delivered to his office for many years. After a very cordial greet ing he gaev me a renewal of his sub scription fr another lyear. As I re membered that Mr. Noonan formerly owned some good race horses, I in quired what was in hos stable at pres ent, when he showed me a photograph of his favorite a handsome mare that must attract attention and- occasion much admiration on the streets of any city. She is a black pacer, sired b? Fred S. Wilkes, 2:11 1-4 ((sire of Fred S. Wedgewood, 2:05 1-4.) Her dam was by Brown Hal, 2:12 1-2, sire ot Star Pointer, 1:59 1-4. The mare has no rec ord and will be started under the name of "Grace Belle." Robert Hunt, a skillful trainer, will ship the pacer to Hartford and prepare her for the races. Mr. Hunt was very successful last year with the black mare Piny Pong, 2:17.1-4, when he won six out of seven races with her. In the opinion of many the mare showed better last (year than during any previous year. BILLY BUCK, 2:07 1-4. In the office of Curtis and Pollock I found the Horse Breeder on top of a pile of papers. One fif the first horses to attract my attention in the large stable of the firm was the bay trotter Billy Buck, 2:07 1-4. He is probably in a new home at pres ent, as the firm considered him sold at the time of my visit. Mr. Curtis showed me several horses that will undoubtedly be profitable on race tracks. One of the best of them is Lord Lawson of Dreamwold, 36270, by Baron Wilkes dam Mercedes Thayer by Kentucky Wilkes, 1854. Another is the pacer Russell Grattan, (trial 2:17 1-4), by Grattan, 2:13; he by Wilkes Boy, 2:24 1-2. Another is the trotter Grace Ward, a fast mare on road or MR. RIGNEY'S HORSES. Mr. H. M. Rigney, a resident of the vicinity of Waterbury, who has a stable of race horses, described some of them as follows: John Thomas, 2:15 1-4, a gray gelding by Keller. Colonel Ander son, 2:24 1-4, a trotter sired by Ander son Wilkes, The brown mare Little Polly, 2:17 1-4. The bay gelding Noble, nd record, but has been fast In races. A green mare by a son of Alcyone, 2:27. Mr. Rigney stated that his wife's fa vorite is the pacer Doctor Boyle, 2:27 1-4, trial 2:18, a geldng that is fast with Mrs. Rigney at the reins. Mr. D. B. Ambler, of Waterbury, is a horse fancier who Is well posted re- ardglng valuable equine stock In that section. He showed the writer several private teams that are remarkable roadsters and fast enough to have low records. Mr. Ambler stated emphati cally that "Waterbury needs a Speed way." It was evident that it a good one is constructed, visitors will be sur prised at the large number of fine horses that will appear on it. John Farley, of Thomaston, owns a filly that is a remarkably fine one and Is highly prized for the reason that she was bred by Mr. Farley. The filly is two years old and is called Junie. She trots, although sired by the fast pacerf McGavock, 2:15 1-4; he by the Hamble tonian trotter McEwen, 2:18 1-4. The dam of the filly was a valuable mare formerly owned in New York city. Mr. Farley owns a superior road mare that is valuable particularly in that section which abounds in hills and valleys. An other roadster in the same stable is, ac cording to reputation, good enough for race tracks. , Mr. Albert Koegel, of Thomaston, is a very genial gentleman who is classed with the enterprising horse fanciers of that section. MR. HOLMES' HORSES. D. M. Holmes, of Saybrook, has some growing colta and some race horses. At the head of the list he places the very lively colt Buster Brown. He is broken to cart and paces at speed, but will trot at a slower gait. His sire, Mlnturn, 2:16 1-4, was fast at both trot and pace. Another colt that shows good signs of speed is a pacer called Robert P. The pacer Bismarck, 2:25 1-2, is having light road work and is going well. Aley M. is having some business in harness and is in fine condition. During previous years Mr. Holmes has trained and driven his horses in races. The winter, which has been a mild one in this vicinity, has passed with very little snow and no real good sleighing. Mr. Strom, owner of Patro nla Princess, and one of the handsom est sleighs in the city, recently stated that, he has hitched to his sleigh only one day during the winter when the sleighing was not good. The warm days have made the city streets so dry and dusty that the wa tering wagons have commenced to wa ter the strets in order to lay he dust. CENTAUR. PEOPLE'S1 CHORAL ONION. The People's Choral Union hold the center of musical attention just now, and their concert to be given in Wool sey Hall on Thursday evening, April 19, will be ithe big closing concert of th musical year. A chorus of two hun dred and forty voices, fine soloists, the New Haven Symphony orchestra, all under the inspiring direction of the im mensely popular conductor William E. Haesche, will crowd tie beautiful hall and acrieve the triumph of the Choral Union's five year's of life.

The soloists will include Mrs. Homer Sawyer of New York, contralto, Mr. George Oscar Bowen of New York, tenor, and Mr. Frederick S. Weld, of this city, baritone. The sale of tickets will begin at Steinert's music store this morning, April 14, anw will continue until the day of the concert. The price of ad mission, which entitles the purchaser to a reserved seat, will ibe twenty-five cents. A limited number of front seats on the ground floor will be sold for thirty-five cents. The demand for seats is far greater than, ever before and before and early application should be made by all desiring good seats. Already friends of the Choral Union have engaged hundreds of seats.

Whittaker as accompanist, the Union has constantly progressed until It is equipped to give the splendid concert planned for next week. STATE AUDITOR CANDIDATES.

"The dead shall rise," and pray what for, Unless they are to live again? Nor will they live just as before, In sin ar.d sorrow and In pain, And have the same old helpless life. With all Its struggles and Ms strife. To live again and be the same, With no improvement or advance) - The old condition to remain; No change the new life to enhance, Would be no benefit to men, For they would sin and die again. If "the dead shall rise," it would mean Both advancement and improvement, Or else, as can be plainly seen, It would be a backward movement No honor to God, no help to man Commencing again where he began. That beautiful life will not ba A repetition of this state, But fulfillment of prophesy Promising man a new ibeglnntng, With perfect chance of no sinning. Nor will we Tlse to live a day, But for the promised thousand years As all the holy scriptures say As in shadows and types appears The just and unjust, every man, According to the gospel plan. The first man took away our chance To live aright, be just and good; The second man makes our advance As certain as He wisely could, And leave us free to nobly act, And prove our character intact. The resurrection will restore All that we lost, and we regain Beside, that gift forevermore, The right of eminent domain; Own ourselves, our nature control Able to govern body and soul.
