BOUGHT FOR A MERE TRIFLE. Uttla Wonder, Who Carried Off the Blue Ribbon In 1840, Cost Hi Own er Only $325 The Successes of Vol tigeur and Thormanby. Stories of Derby winners having been sold as youngsters for exceed ingly small sums are fairly numerous, and without going too far back into i the recesses of the past at least two I Instances can be cited of animals des tined ultimately to win the "blue rib bon of the turf" which as yearlings no one thought good enough to buy. Voltigeur was one of these, and the other was Thormanby. Voltigeur was bred by .Robert Ste phenson in 1847 and as a yearling was sent up to be sold at the Doncaster sales, a reserve price of $1,750 being placed on him. Not a man' was found to bid that much for him; consequently he was withdrawn. In all probability he would have re mained unsold had not Williamson, a relative by marriage of Lord Zetland, seen him and, having taken a fancy to him, finally persuaded his lordship to buy him. His Judgment was triumphantly vin dicated, for not only did Voltigeur win the Derby and St. Leger, but he suc ceeded in establishing a line of thor oughbreds which is at present domi nant on the English turf and likely to remain so for some time to come. Thormanby.. too. was sent up to be disposed' at the Doncaster and, like Voltigeur, did not reach a nominal re serve. Desirous of getting rid of him, however, Plummer, his breeder, re quested his famous trainer, Matt Daw son, to come and have a thorough look at him. This Dawson did and, perceiving at a glance good points about him, which no one else, apparently had noticed, bought him for Merry, his patron. Strange ' enough, Dawson gave the . same figure for Thormanby as that paid for Voltigeur. .As i two-year-old Thormanby ran fourteen times and out of this number scored nine wins, and in the Derby of the following year he beat a field of thirty. It was said that the race net ted Merry the nice sum of $200,000. The cheapest horse that ever won the Derby was Little Wonder, which was successful in 1S40, for he cost his owner, Robertson, the meager sum of only $323. Spaniel, too, winner of the race in 1831, was picked up for a very small sum. Lord Egerton, his breeder, letting him go for $750. Pyrrhus J.. which won in 1846, was purchased by John Day, the noted trainer, as a yearling at Doncaster, Gully, the pugilist, taking a half in terest in him. As a two-year-old the horse never ran, and seemingly his abilities were then of an unknown quantity, for at the end of the season Day agreed to sell his half share in him to Gully for $500. Day's chagrin at his subsequent victory In the Derby was very great. Teddlngton. the winner of 1851. was bred by a blacksmith, who sold him as a foal, together with his dam, to Sir Joseph Hawley for $1,250 and a further $3,000 if he won the Derby. Sir Joseph and his confederate. Mas sey Stanhope, to whom the horse real ly belonged, profited largely over the success, and the Jockey. Marson, who rode the horse, received $10,000 as a token of victory, which in those days was unprecedented. Sainfoin, which carried the colors of Sir James Miller to the front, was an exceptionally fortunate purchase by John Porter, the trainer. He bought the colt out of the Hampton Court lot of yearlings in 1888 for the very rea sonable price of $2,720, Sir Robert Dr Alae UtiojSA.half iatereaUia. bl. LOST.

It was Indeed a profitable deal for Porter and Sir Robert. Another Instance of Porter's shrewd ness as a horse dealer was his pur chase of the great horse Isonomy for the bagatelle figure, comparatively speaking, of $1,800. The real owner was Fred Gretton. Isonomy gave no real promise of his worth as a two-year-old, his only vic tory being a nursery stake In the lat ter part of the season. As a three-year-old be was not seen in pnblic un til the Cambridgeshire, which he won easily by two lengths and incidentally earned no less than $200,000 in bets for his owner. Had he been in the classic races he would in all probability have cleaned the board. As a four-year-old he won the gold cup at Ascot and the Goodwood and Brighton cups and crowned these feats by literally running away with the Great Ebor handicap, carrying the crushing weight of 136 pounds. The following year Isonomy proved himself a better horse than ever, not only winning the Ascot gold cup again, but also the Manchester cup with the almost impossible burden, one would think, of 138 pounds. 'It has been calculated that altogeth er Isonomy won for his owner up ward of $500,000 in stakes and bets, which for an $1,800 investment was a colossal profit. Brooklyn Eagle.

"As fond as I am of reading," said a merchant, "I never peruse a legal doc ument without feeling irritable over my Inability to grasp the real meaning of such a paper at a glance. Like many other persons not engaged in the legal profession, I sometimes have to read contracts and other agreements ! drawn up by lawyers, and I often won der why in this age of common sense the 'whereases,' 'aforesaids' and "par ties of the first part are not relegated i to oblivion. The technical verbiage employed is a relic of the age when that which was mysterious and could not be understood was esteemed to be beyond the comprehension of the com mon herd. The use of uncommon Eng lish in purely business circles would j not be endured. Why, then, should 1 the transfer of a piece of property be a process so labyrinthian and so mys-, terious that a man of sound sense ' cannot fathom it? It has been esti mated that the clipping of the letter u' from suefc words as humour, labour and the like has added to the world each year what is equivalent to the productive capacityof 500 ablebodied ; men. What would we not gain if from every legal paper and from every legal suit there should be removed that vast mass of superfluity, that an tique verbiage, that bulk of repetition and solemn senselessness that now iiv wraps them as the shell inwraps the clam ?

In a character sketch of Emperor William II. in the American Magazine Octave Mirbeau tells an Interesting story of the kaiser's relations with his royal mother. The incident was re lated by Prince Bismarck one night when be had been drinking toe much. "And no one," remarks M. Mirbeau. "was more brutally sincere than Bis marck was under the Influence of wine." Here Is a part of the story: "The relations between William and his mother, the Empress Frederick, became at last so bitter that William placed spies about her, even in the bedroom of his Invalid father. "Through one of these spies William learned of the existence of a Journal which his father had kept for some years. Frederick had a taste for writ ing, and the fact that there was cold ness between him and bis son led Wil liam to fear that this secret Journal might contain some criticism of his conduct. "The empress, however, was clever enough to conceal the diary before her husband's death. Eluding the surveil lance of her son, she sent the papers to her mother. Queen Victoria, or to her brother, then Prince of Wales, I don't remember which. "Hardly had his father drawn his last breath when William over the dead body performed his first official act. "It was to demand of his widowed mother the Journal, which he termed 'memorial.' "The empress feigned Ignorance. William insisted. He spoke as master, giving his mother the order to obey. She persisted in declaring that she knew nothing of the papers. . M'WelL he confmanded, purple with wrath, you will remain under close arrest until you have obeyed mer "Bismarck, arriving at Potsdam two hours after this, found the palace sur rounded by squadrons of armed cav alry. "The emperor, whom he found still exalted, told the old chancellor how he had met the disobedience of his moth er. " 'And she need not expect pity or consideration until she has obeyed me,' he declared. Ton understand that. Mr. Chancellor? Until she has obeyed mer "The pupil had gone much too far. Bismarck saw at once that the buf foonery continued might mar the whole of William's reign. Later In life, he said, he used to wonder how he kept from laughing in his sover eign's face. "What he did was to receive Wil liam's news with deferential silence and later, when the emperor was calmer, show him that his course was sure to meet with general disapproval. There was a way. he thought, of pro ceeding much more vigorously and at the same time efficaciously. Why not rather cut down the income of the empress, suspend her appanages? " 'I know her majesty, said the good Bismarck. 'She has pride. Forced ar rest she can brave out, accepting It as a sort of martyrdom, but the money, sire, the money! Who can resist mon ey? "Further, he laid tactful stress upon the probable representations of Eng land. 'Is it really the moment, sire? "The kaiser, becoming appeased, lis tened to Bismarck's counsel. The ar rest of the empress was removed. Tba officers led their cavalry back to quar ters, and William turned his attention to the details of his father's obse quies, which he wished to be most fastidious." Tk.

PRESIDENT GEORGE WESTING HOUSE SAYS THAT ALL HOPE FOR THE ELECTION OF THE OHIOAN TODAY. New York, Nov. 1!. Plans f.r com plete electrification of the Pennsyl vania railroad terminals In this city were announced last night with the signing of a $5.K"xH contract for the work with the Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company. This followed an important meeting of the Pennsylvania directory In Philadel phia. j Aside from the importance of the contract for the work it Involves, the announcement has a poltical biguifl rance, made known through an Inter view with President George Westing house, who announced the signing of the contract. He said: "It was decid ed at first not to announce the con tract at this time, but after arriving here I telephoned President McCrca of the Pennsylvania. "Of course, we all hope for the elec tion of Taft. and I thought this would be a good time to show our confi dence." The contract is for the electrification of the entire Pennsylvania Bystem from Harrison, N. J., to Jamaica. L. I. While the initial amount of apparatus will aggregate $5,000,000. this is said by no means to represent the full amount. The system of trolley will probably be overhead, and not the so-called third rail system. The engines to be used will be entirely of a new type, and the most powerful In existence. They will resemble closely fhe steam loco motive now in use and not the type of short locomotive on the New Haven. WARRAMTSFOR 100 Merciless Campaign Is Being Waged Against Riders In Tennessee.

She's been in here nearly every day. and every time she cam In she bought stamps one stamp sometimes, soma times two, and now and then three or four." "Then what?" asked the waiting cus tomer.
