This, with the intervening additions,

The race given yesterday at Agricul
tural Park came off very successfully.
It was a pleasant day and a large crowd
was in attendance. It was thought by
some that Budd Doble would drive one
of the horses, but such was not the
case. The race was for a purse of $50—
$30 to the first and $20 to the second;
mile heats, three in five, to harness.
There were three entries: Mr. W. J.
Welch named Pauline, Mr. Askin
Rubber Boy, and Mr. Campbell Los
Angeles Maid. Pauline took the first
purse and Los Angeles Maid the sec
ond. The first heat was won by Pau
ltne; time, 2:55; Los Angeles Maid
second and Rubber Boy last. The sec
ond heat was won by Pauline in the
same time and the others iv the same
E)sition. In tbe third heat Rubber
oy came In ahead, but the heat was
declared void, It being claimed that
the horse broke and ran some distance.
Pauline won the fourth heat in 2:49;
Rubber Boy second and Los Angeles
Maid distanced. The betting was
about two to one in favor of Pauline
against the field. Betting on Rubber
Boy and the Maid stood even.
San Francisco, as will be seen by
the following item from. the Alia, is
about to test the legality of the law
passed by the last Legislature. The
result will be awaited with some solic
itude. The general impression is that
the law cannot be enforced: "During
the last session of the Legislature, a
bill was passed requiring every parent
and guardian in this State, having
control of children between the ages
of eight aad fourteen jrcavo, to u«n<t
such children to a public school for at
least two-thirds or the time during
which school is insession. Certain pro
visions excusing them from attendance
on account of sickness are made in the
bill. Tlie law has as yet proved a dead
letter, but it is understood that one of
the Truant Officers will shortly be in
structed by the Board of Education to
make au arrest, so that the matter can
be tested in the Courts.
