JOCKEY BARELY ESCAPES DEATH KUNZ'S LIFE SAVED BY RARE PRESENCE OF MIND Turtle and Straggler Go Down In a Heap on the Flrat Tunn— Three Favorites Win at FOREST LOWRY Had it not. been for the good luck that generally goes with racing there would have been little in the program of sport offered yesterday afternoon to lift It out of the dull monotony which seems to be Inseparable from a long continued race meeting. Jimmy Booker gave a splendid exhi bition of those essential qualities which secure • success for • a Jockey— courage, cleverness and that promptness of decision that betokens a keen, active intellect. These are the qualities which often win races, but Booker put them, to a grander and nobler purpose yesterday. Turtle Falls Of the seven starters for the mile and / a sixteenth race, second on the card, ' Montana Peeress was made fa vorite at the almost prohibitive odds of 3 to 5. Varro was next In demand at 5 to 2, ■with Freeslas third choice at 5" to 1. Montana Peeress, -with Kent in the saddle, broke a half and a length behind Freeslas, but before the first turn was reached she was running stride for stride with Wernbergr's mare. At this point came the most thrilling Incident of the season. At the seven eighths pole Kent, on the outside, cut In toward the rail and crowded Free filas out of It. Taylor pulled the mare up with sharp turn and she seemed to want to bear out. Turtle, piloted by Kunz, was running in on the rail and when ' Freeslas pulled up the gelding crossed his legs and fell to his knees. Little Adele and Headstrong, were on the outside of the field and escaped the spill. Straggler, : with Jimmy Booker in the saddle, trailed the bunch and before he could pull his ■ mount • up he found himself in a position which required quick action. Booker saw the danger ahead of him and tried to make Straggler jump over the fallen Turtle but failed, and horse and rider fell. Had he pulled up and gone to the out side he would have trampled. to death Jockey.' Kunz, who lay prostrate in the center of the track.' Booker's Rare Judgment f Booker forgot . the stinging: disap pointment of defeat and all that goes with it and the thought of danger to himself and in the one manly impulse to save a comrade tried to make his horse hurdle the writhing form of the fallen Turtle. Booker's rare presence of mind was all accomplished so quickly that few were able to realize •what had happened. Everybody, knew that two horses and two Jockeys had gone down In a heap but few knew that Booker took his own life in his hands when he at tempted to hurdle Turtle in order to save the life of Jockey Kunz. ' Those in front went on about their business and. the race settled down to a three horse affair. Freesias caught both Varro and Montana Peeress in the stretch and soon wore them down, winning by a scant head. Varro out gamed Montana Peeress for the place. The first race on the card, which was a selling affair for four-year-olds and upward, drew out a field of nine. My Gem was. the opening favorite at 6 to 5 and despite the play on her receded to 12 to sat post time. She ran ex actly as the betting indicated and fin ished second to Elfln King and Susie Christian. Elfin King was as good as 7 to 1, while Susie Christian could be had at 15 to 1. Happy Chappy, sec ond choice at 3 to 1, ran a disappointing race and finished out of the money. Blue Coat, at 3 to 1 and on a track not exactly to his liking, won the third race from Ralph Reese, second choice in the betting, and Sweet Kitty Bel lairs, the 6to 5 favorite. Why Kitty Bellairs was made favorite is a mys tery, yet hundreds of dollars were strung along on her when on figures she did not seem to have a show to be better than second. Old Watercure Wins Johnny Mlllin's old campaigner, Watercure, at 2 to 1, and favorite, won the fourth race on the program from Blissful through the clever riding of Jockey Fuller. He made his move on the far turn and saved ground by skinning the rail. Blissful bore out a bit and finished on the extreme out side. Fuller urged the old _"Watercress gelding keenly the last sixteenth and fairly lifted him In a winner. Water cure got up Just in time and won by a good head. There was some dissatis faction over the pacing of the num bers as many were of the opinion that Blissful got the wire first. Watercure wan going fastest at the end and got the verdict beyond a question. Ralph Young was third, with Brlarthorpe and Bugle Horn beaten off badly. Dalvay Pulls Up Lame . M. 11. Tlchenor's good four-year-old Dalvay, at the prohibitive odds of 1 to 4, easily disposed of Tim Payne, Oro Viva and Fustian in the fifth race. Walsh never let the pace makers, Tim Payne and Oro Viva, get away from him and when he called on Palvay the horse responded and quickly shook oft the pair. Dalvay struck himself en the left hind quarter and pulled up a trifle lume. Qlrdlestone, at 4 to 5, took the last race on the card from Del Coronado and Cotillion without extending . himself HERALD RACING CHART ASCOT PARK. \\><ln«klii)r, »b. l-Bljtli»th <I«y. W»«th*f cloudy.

He spread his hoof badly on Tuesday and owner Cushlng will now throw him out of training. Another "knight of the pigskin" to make his first appearance was T. Tay lor. C. C. McCafferty, who Is racing a string at Oakland, has a contract on his services and sent him to Los An geles to ride for his brother, J. J. Mc- Cafferty. This boy was riding with fair success on the Canadian circuit last summer. He made a promising debut here by piloting his first mount, Freeslas, to victory and running second on Tim Payne: He Is a very alert boy at the post as he beat the barrier on each of his mounts. He possesses a lot of nerve which he showed when he was almost - thrown over the fence on Freeslas on the first turn when Montant Peeress bumped him badly. He managed to squeeze through a small opening which won the race for htm. Throw out Happy Chappy's effort of yesterday. He can do better and Per rlne.was of no help to him. Many of the wise brigade were of the opinion that Ellin King could not win on account of being wind broken and thought that he would stop in the stretch as he was running against a heavy wind. The result was Btol on an 8 to 5 shot. Varro's race was too bad to be true and he can do better. Dugan gave him a bad ride and the horse can do much better. Freeslas was run up $300 over his entered price by "Dick" Williams. The usual extra five left her in the hands of her new owner, McCafferty, In whose charge she showed wonderful Improvement. Through a masterful finish that Ful ler put up on Blue Coat he Just man aged to last. Fuller brought in Water cure in the same way. He looked beaten at the sixteenth palS : but through a superior finish Just did "nip" Blissful on the post.' Many of the bettors who played the latter gath ered around the Judges' stand hissing over the decision. The Judges were the only ones in a position to place them. Tab Brlarthorpe. This one will win soon. Was badly outrun the first three quarters and finished like a whirl wind. Fair Light is a good future prospect. Worked a mile in 1:43 on Monday and ran In her race yesterday as If short. Race will do her good. LOS ANGELES HERALD: THURSDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 2, 1905.

FAMOUS TURF PLUNGER, PITTSBURG PHIL, DIES George E. Smith, better known as Plttsburg Phil, died yesterday at Ash ville, N. C. The famous turf plunger, fever-stricken, passed away at the age of forty years. Bookmakers who have been ques tioned agree % that none of the big bet tors of today and none of the students of the race tracks can be classed with the late Pittsburg Phil, j They give credit to Phil for being the greatest player the ring has ever known. Much money as he has ■won from 1 them they delight in telling of his amazing plunges and of the tricks he played on them. Wrought up by the ruling passion that has made his name a byword on every race course in this country, the great plunger picked winners in phan tom races, as he lay delirious and near death's door at the sanitarium at Ashe ville. "Plttsburg Phil" was the coolest and most calculating man the American turf has ever known. No man could ever discern from his facial expression or action whether he bet a cigar or a fortune on a. race. Sphinx-like he would watch, his favorites come down the stretch. If he won there would be as little trace of animation on his stoic face as there would be signs of disappointment If he lost. No one could read his mind, his hopes or his fears. Just before his death there was re action in Asheville. As he lay upon his bed of fever he wildly called upon his horses in immaginary races, plead with them, cried to them and then fell back upon his pillow weakened by hla frenzy shouting words of victory. Men who have marveled at this once self-possessed man recall how he lost £285,000 up to the last three days of the Saratoga meeting In August, 1902. Two days before the meeting closed he won heavily on his own horse, Brunswick, at 6tol to Bhow. The next day he v/ent through the betting ring and §SOfiESMfiOICERS^ Six years ago I became afflicted with a VAi,DOSf a, Ga., September, 1900. 1 J •evere sore leg which continued to grow Swift Specific Co., Atlanta, Ga. wJkWP* fjifiMh worse, gradually, until the entire leg Dkar Sirs— l want 'to tell you about Hflß&tjnijiilu from the knee to the foot was one solid my case and the good S.

A great running sore, oj deep offensive ulcer may develop from a slight scratch, bruise or pimple— a harm- less looking little boil or slightly swollen gland may soon be an ulcerating mass that will develop into a cancerous ulcer, dangerous and destructive. Middle-aged and old people are the most frequent sufferers from old sores and chronic ulcers, but the young, even children, who have inherited weak constitutions or had them contaminated and tainted by Malaria, or other sickness, are afflicted in the same way. These chronic sores and ulcers are a constant drain on the system, sapping the vitality and strength. They depress the energy with their foul pollu- tion, and are sure signs that the blood is charged with poisonous matters which in its weak, sluggish condition it is unable to throw off.
