measurable class in her performances
here, for it Is quite a feat to start
three times and make every one
winner and In each case having stiff
opposition to overcome. Syzygy, a
two-year-old carrying light weight,
was expected to make it Interesting
for Autumn Rose pn account of his
good races here, winning twice ena
running second on another occasion.
She was in forward contention to the
three-quarter pole, racing Merman
into submission at the half, but in the
final drive home tired , and allowed
Whip Top, who laid off the early pace,
to finish with a rush and take the
place by a length. The rest of the
field was not serious. Merman quit
badly in the final furlong, finishing a
poor fourth, four lengths in the rear
Lee Jackson carried off tne jocKey
honors of the day. He piloted home
two winners, having the leg up on
Autumn Rose in the fifth and pre
vious to that, by clever handling,
brought Gerando in .first, beating out
Irvin on Brown Tody in an exciting
stretch battle. Ben Sand, in close pur
suit ell the way, came with a rush in
the final furlong and all but beat out
Brown Tony for the place, the colt
Just lasting to get the secondary po
sition by a head.
The afternoon's sport opened with
a banar-up finish between Rebel Queen
and Mae Hamilton, the former getting
the decision by a short head. Lucky
Mate, an early contender, dropped out
of, serious contention at the stretch,
leaving the battle to Rebel Queen and
Mae Hamilton For, five furlongs it
was a beautiful race betwaen the
three placed horses, the winner and
Mae Hamilton racing heads apart to
the half, where Lucky Mate closed on
the lenders and forged to the. front
to lead for a furlong by a head and
then quil. Rebel Queen assumed the
point of vantage at the stretch by n
neck and held cn gamely to ib? end.
Sweet Owen, at a fair price, had
little trouble defeating a good bunch
of selling platers in the second event,'

Has Football Lost Any
Of Its Danger This Year?
Twenty-two deaths directly attribu-1

This is eight less than last year's
record, but there are still more
games, and many injured are hover
ing between life and death in col
In the number of players seriously
injured all records have been broken
in 1910. The total of accidents which
did not result fatally is four hun
dred and ninety-nine, more than twice
the record of last year and nearly two
hundred more than in 1908, which un
til now was the most disastrous year.
All the deaths ana accidents of
1910 have occurred under the new
rules which football experts promised
would largely eliminate the peril of
The game was divided into quar
ters instead of halves, particularly to
reduce , the accident list. Open play
was substituted for mass play, that
limbs and skulls might be spared
from fracture and over-taxed hearts
get more frequent resting spells.
The figures indicate that football
under the new rules is more dan
gerous than ever before. The safety
rules have contributed sixty-five bro
ken collar bones, forty broken legs,
thirty-seven broken noses, thirty bro
ken ribs, twenty broken ankles, sev
enteen broken fingers, thirteen bro
ken shoulders and eleven broken
wrists, as "well as fractures of other
portions cf the anatomy to a gener
The number of deaths among col
lege players has been unusually large
this year and refutes tbe assertion
that men who are properly trained
and coached are not in great peril.
