The chestnut son of Whlskbroom II. defeated tho best field the nation could send against him In what prob ably was tho greatset race for three-year-olds staged In a decade. Will Perkin's Thibodaux, a rank outsider In the betting, and a Kentucky-bred horse, finished second In a driving finish with Whlskaway, crossing tho wire a half length be hind the winner. Morvich was third, ten lengths bohlnd Whlskaway. Pil lory, winner of the $50,000 Preakness stakes, was fourth and Deadlock was fifth. The mile and a quarter was run In 2:05 2-5, which Is within one .flfth of a second of the track record. There was no question of the rela tive racing ability of Whlskaway over Morvich. Morvich was decisive ly beaten, struggling with a tired, weary stride at the finish. The' win ner paid $11.10 for a $2 ticket, Mor Yich being the favorite in the betting.

BARGAINS Ragan In the game with Lexington on the local lot last Thursday the Essex proved their superiority over tho Studebakera, outplaying them in every department of the game. Mon holland essayed to pitch for Loxlng ton, but his offerings proved to tho liking of our boys, and he was taken out after the sixth Inning and Parks substituted. Eggloston, a new twirl er, started the game for Mt Sterling and was taken out In tho seventh in ning when it was seen that ho waa weakening, and Townsend finished the game. Tho game, while not an especially well played one, was in teresting from start to finish and af forded much excitement. Muth, Lex ington's contorflolder, became some what "wrathy" when Umpire S. D. Gay called a strike on him and went into the center of the diamond to protest the decision. He was prompt ly ejected from the game and a fine of $10 was assessed against him. We believe a few more fines would put a stop to all the wrangling the spec tators have been forced to put up with in this league, and the action of Umpire Gay is to be heartily com mended.

A Joke at Paris The showing made at Paris Sun day afternoon was nothing less than a joke. When the boys were not making errors they were pulling bonehead plays. The exhibition was undoubtedly the worst we havo had this season and with the exception of the hitting of Ellis and the play ing of Pergrem the gamo was abso lutely featureless so far as the local aggregation was concerned. In tho very first Inning Paris secured three runs on one hit, coupled with count less errors. While it will be seen from tho official box score below Mt.

Mt- stBritoJf"t Garage All Fees Above $5,000 To Go Back To County All fees in excess of $5,000 and tho salary of necessary deputies and as sistants, collected by sheriffs of Ken tucky, must be turned Into county treasuries and go to the payment of tho cost of county government, tho court of appeals decided Friday. The question was discussed In a volum inous opinion written by Judge Moor man and concurred in by the whole court, reversing tho action of tho Fayetto circuit court, which held that Paul . Shlpp could not bring suit against J. Waller Rodes and T. C. Bradley, former sheriffs of Fay ette county. The opinion affects many counties throughout the stato in which sher iffs have been receiving more than $5,000 a year In salary from fees. Of ficials say It will save the state and counties many thousands of dollars annually. The case was the out growth of agitation for saving money to the state and counties and is backed by farmers' organizations throughout the state. The court of appeals In Its opinion held that all excess fees must go in to the county treasury. It expressly stated that It was not deciding, in this case, whether or not the state could recover from the county Its pro rata of fees paid the sheriffs in ex cess of $5,000 and expenses. Tho county fiscal courts are charg ed by the court with the enforcement of the constitutional provisions, in Its opinion. It says that the sheriffs aro required to make returns to the fis cal courts and that through those an exact accounting for his office can bo obtained. Through the law requiring that the fiscal courts approve the ap pointment of deputies, the salaries the number of deputies can be regu lated, the court said. The court confined Its remarks to the Bradley case, saying that it also was decisive of the Rodes case. Tho suit by Shlpp was to recover excess fees for 1914 to 1917 from Bradley and for 1918, 1919 and 1920 from Rodes. The opinion Friday decides that Shlpp has the right to sue in this case and says that recovery can be had. It was claimed in the Bradley case that in 1914 he received from the state $12,090.74; county, $13,515.04, and more than $G,0Q0 from private litigants. The above ruling, it is said, will affect the sheriff's office in Montgom ery county, not only in regard to the present Incumbent, but also his pre decessor, and It Is likely he will be forced to pay back Into tho county treasury several thousand dollars. By tho court's decision many coun ties in the state will be affected and, it is said, thousands of dollars will be saved the commonwealth annually. Ladles, buy Holeproof hose.
