' o There are good reasons for believing that the? e are many thieves here who have been following the races. It will be well to keep a lookout for them. A rule of the trotting association is that the Maysville papers shall not be allowed to circulate on the grounds. This rule was evidently incubated under a seven and a half hat. The full programme of each days' races will be found printed in the Daily Bulletin. It is the same as that sold at ten cents at the track. The price of the Bulletin is one cent.

Failure oflhe Ten-Mile Dash to Materialize. Miss Burke Arrives and Exhibits Iter Horsemanship. Her Horse's Legs Broken by a Fall. Florence M. and Anna W. Winners in the 2:40 and 2:20 Classes Respectively Yesterday, the time fixed for the beginning of the races opened most favorably, with bright sunshine and the air keen and penetrating. The track which lays through a rather sandy district, had dried off well and was in the best condition. The attendance, as expected, was very large, and we must add, a sorely disappointed gathering, owing to the failure of the great event of the day that had been so widely advertised the ten-mile dash by Miss Nellie Burke, of Nebraska, and Miss Lillian Devere, of California. The latter lady, it is represented, was taken suddenly ill at Louisville on Monday, and telegraphed through Miss Burke, on Tuesday, to have the race postponed. The Secretary of the Trotting Association replied that it was impossible to comply with the request, and directed Miss Burke to come herself from Louisville with horses and make an exhibition on the grounds. Miss Burke answered : Louisville. Ky.. May 15. 1882. J got your despatch too lute to start the horses, but am coming myself. First class horses will answer. I will ride against a or respectable Jockey. Nellie Burke. In the absence of "a gentleman or respectable jockey," the arrangement was not made and the race did not take place. The Association then by means of hand bills, issued an address of explanation to the public of which the following is the gist : 11 As it is impossible to have the ten mile race take place as advertised the Board have declared it off, and deem it proper to lay the above lacts before the public without comment, but with the open confession that they greatly regret that such a misfortune should overtake the Association at its first meeting. Miss Burke will arrive to-day, and if possible to arrange it will have the ten mile race go on Friday." Miss Burke did arrive by the Morning Mail at noon, much to the public relief. She is a pleasant-featured little lad3r, of vivacious manner, and is apparently on the sunny side of thirty. And we hope we betray no confidence in saying that she is married and the mother of a boy of eleven years. Beared in Nebraska where everybody rides horses she became an expert equestrienne at an early age. Subsequently she instructed a ladies' riding school at Omaha, and her graceful horsemanship attracting general attraction, she was induced to engage in match racing, and is now acknowledge to be the fastest lady rider in the world. She is credited with riding ten miles at Austin, Texas, in the wonderful time of nineteen minutes and thirty-six seconds. Miss Burke manifested an earnest desire to comply with all the terms of her contract with the Trotting Association, and in compliance with their wishes in the afternoon gave an exhibition of her style of riding. As her stable had not ariived she used an untrained and vicious horse, the property of Mr. George "Wells, of this county. It is proper to say that she was made acquainted with the animal's bad points and offered no objections to using it. Mr, Robert Liter, one of our most expert horsemen, kindly volunteered to accompany Miss Burke over the course. A good start was made. Miss Burke managed her horse easily and gracefully exhibiting her skill with the reins to fine advantage. On the last quarter of the mile, however, her horse broke the tendons of both fore legs and fell. Miss Burke fell with the animal but was quickly upon her feet and escaped all injury except a'slightly bruised shoulder. The first race was for 2:40 horses. Purse $800.
