LICON, -Manager, j Salvator, great race horse, had beaten Tenny, mighty runner of the turf, in the Suburban Handi cap at Sheepshead Bay. Salvator had also disposed of other rivals in that same race, and they were calling him the King of the Turf , wnen uavtd ruisiler imade pro test. He owned the person of Tenny, and in that horse was wrap ped the pride and the ambitions of the tribe of Pulsifer. So insistent was Pulsifer that Tenny bad no superior in Amer ica, that fee worked himself into no . emotional challenge, and made .a wager of five thousand with .James B. Haggin that Salva tor could not repeat the perform ance of the Suburban and thrust defeat into the face of Tenny the second time. Thus it came about that on a June day at old Sheeps- head the great crowd gathered to witness a battle of the giants, and the whole country lingered close to the telegraph wires to get first hand oews of the finish. Now, there 'have been many splendid stories and at least one good poem written of that match. Stirring tales they are; and yet there is one little yarn one may write even now, which, while it may tarnish in a measure the crown of Salvator, yet gives to Tenny his due, long overdue, and goes to bow that in this stupend ous game of horse racing the prize is not always to the swiftest. Sal vator did not beat Tenny in the match because he ran a bit faster. enny had a .peculiarity, and be cause a jockey Knew it and took fair advantage of it, Salvator had his white nose in front at the end of that remarkable mile and a quarter. It was Isaac Murphy, negro knight of the saddle, who won the duel. Of course, he had the swift and earnest assistance 0 Salvator between his knees; but any other boy but Murphy astride Salvator on that day would have viewed the finish from the rear. HE LOVED HIS HOME. ' Tenny was what you might call a home body. He loyed bis sta ble and its associations. Run greatly he could and would, but, given his own norse way about things, he would never have been a far wanderer from the stall which gave him shelter. That particular stall at Sheepshead was just at the middle of- the second turn of the tracs. lenny could see the door invitingly open when ho galloped past on the track. He did see it on many morning occasions when he was taking his work, and many times he made a playful effort to eave the track and go through the gap for home before he had finish ed his constitutional. Now and then when he was having a gen uine work out running a distance almost at top speed he would j bear out on the turn and make a real try to slip out and home. It was that peculiarity of which the shrewd Isaac Murphy had knowl edge. Isaac feared Tenny in the match. He told Haggin so frankly. He had been on Salvator when that horse had all he could do to beat Tenny in the Suburban, and he, better than anybody, knew what a foeman Tenny was. - Haggin was so filled with confidence, born of his worship of Salvator, that he would scarce give ear to Isaac's fears, and had the negro lost the race it is my belief he would have parted racing company with the black boy. So it was that Isaac put himself to serious thought, keeping his counsel, as was his habit. " When he mounted for the match he had what racing people call "an ace in the bole." Whether or not that ace would win for him, one fleeting moment would tell. Both riders had instructions to run all the way. There were to be 00 waiting tactics. Speed, speed, -speed ! was to be the way of the ruotoing, and they made it that way. Off froia the starter's red flag the pair of horses sprang. fighting for the lreedom of the bit. Head and head they burst through the first quarter of a mile, the crowd sitting breathless. Then there came a iild shout from the stand as Salvator's head, and then his neck, showed to the front. Gradually the neck became half the length of Salvator's long1 body. Tbea ut became the whole length, and Tenny's 'bead was at Salvator's tail. All thk time the pace had beeo terrific. All this time Salva tor was, surely as death's coming, creeping away from Tenn. ( That did not mean Tenny's de-i feat, for TenDj was known as a great treteh winner. He could make his last quarter a tremendous effort. Salvator went further away and daylight began to show be tween them. The pace was never slackened. " Garrison on Tenny was patient, knowing the stretch run he had under him, and hoping that Salvator would tire at such speed. Salvator drore along the I back stretch and swung into the second turn a good length and half in front, and becoming uneasy, caution Tenny and more of the horse. a Garrison was He began to to ask a bit THEN CAME THE CODP. Then Murphy sprang his coup. Tenny's stall stood there just be yond the middle of the turn, and the door was calling him from the heat and the trial of the day. Gar rison had almost begun to urge Tenny, and the horse had begun to respond. Marphy took just the right moment, and guided Salvator away from the Inside rail toward the middle of the track. Tenny perforce must be eased out also, for to come up he must come on the outside. Garrison gave gen tie pressure on his right rem as the middle of the turn was reached., Tenny went out wide and then wider. ' He saw the stall loor. He was going home ! Garrison felt the purpose of the horse; and in a flash swung on the left rein, sitting down to ride in good earnest. Tenny, disap pointed, nay angered, at the loss of home going, pinned his ears flat on his hooded head and sulked. For half a dozen strides he fchort ened and fought back atthe demon who was fighting him. Garrison punished Tenny as he had never been punished before. Murphy looked back as be took Salvator close to the rail again and beaded into the home stretch. Tenny was more than two lengths of open daylight behind, and he was still mad. Garrison was one of the great est finishers that ever bestrode a horse in this country. From the bead of the stretch home be put in the effort of his career. Tenny straightened bis ears again and answered Garrison. 1 Shortly he began to close the gap. Slowly, an inch at a time it seemed, but still surely he was gaining on Sal vator. And Salvator was running just as fast as he could. Murphy drew his whip and looked back again. He laid the whip down and called to Salvator with voice, knees and hands. The whip for the last resort. Tenny was clos ing. Was the distance to the fin ish enough ? Given sufficient length of ground, and Tenny would put away all separation and be at Salvator's throat in front of him. Murphy rode hard. Garrison almost crept to Tenny's foretop in nis straining ror etrort. JNot a murmur came from twenty thou sand watchers. Tenny crept on Salvatar strove. Tenny at his quarters, at Salvator's saddle skirts, at his neck, at his throat latch, at the finish ! Outside the judges' stand no one could tell which had won. Haggin stood white holding to his son's arei. Salvator's number went up. "Too too close for comfort, son," said Haggin. Sal vator had beaten Tenny by the shortest of heads and was lurf King. j Kow, had it not been for that home loving of Tenny's and Isaac Murphy's minding of it., there would have been no half lensrtb lost on the second turn; and, as you see, only a short head sepa rated them at the finish, you may figure for yoiirself which would have been crowned that June day when two horses broke all records for a mile and a quarter in the endeavor to break each other's racing hearts. Whooping Cough. This disease commences very much the same as an ordinary cold, but may soon be lden titled by its peculiar cough. The principal danger is from the accumulation of tough, tenacious mucus in the throat, choking the child, or the prolonged and violent cough ing, rupturing the tiny air cells of the lungs. When neglected complications arise. That is. it leads to other and more dangerous diseases, convulsions, pneumonia, etc., which often results fatally. ''Uoussen's Honey of Tar" will keep the the cough loose and the expectoration easy, allay the irrlta tion and tickling in the throat, mak Jng the fits of coughing lees violent and less frequent. The reason this remedy has bad such phenomenal suc cess in the treatment of whooping coughs is that the manufacturers of of Coussen's Compound Honey of Tar are the sole proprietors of the process of manufacturing Castanine, a power ful alKaloid obtained exclusively from Castanea Americana, or the American chestnut leaf . This almost specific rem edy for whooping1 cough, taken from the chestnut leaf and added to other valuable medicinal agents: hoar hound, wild cherry, squills, blood root, mullein, tulu, honey, tar, etc., makes the compound prescription, known since 1801 as "Coussen's Compound Honey of Tar" The only ablsolute and pbsitivu remedy for the distress ing cough Known as the Whooping cough.

When the Pure Food Bill be came a federal law the National Government took a long step for ward. The law is doubtless sus ceptible of much improvement,but in its present form it is bringing results of far-reaching importance to every family in the United States. Its principal provision is that the label must tell what's what. If headache powders con tain dangerous stimulents or nar cotics the label must tell the na ture of the ingredients. If a ca tarrh cure is made of cocaine, the the public must have a chance to learn something of its formula be fore buying the poison. The sure cure for consumption that drugs the victim and hastens death must not longer masquerade as a magic medicine, and the soothing syrup containing opium or morphine must be branded so that a mother may not kill her child unwittingly when trying to quiet it. These and other provisions of the l'ure Food Bill bearing upon the drug trade move' the Chicago Times to observe that it will now be easier for the careful physician to warn his patients against taking, med icines that create a habit Says the Tribune : "Aqua pura cum grano salis will continue to bring in 10,000 per cent profit to the druggist when prescribed, but at any rate it can do no barm." " In view of the fact that the trend of modern science is toward a less use of medicines, while tho aver age patient still requires a certain amount of dosing to be convinced that be is being cured, the "aqua pura cum grano salis" prescrip tion and the like, must still have a place in the list of useful drugs. The physician who prescribes ef fective remedies without dosing the system with harmful drugs is no less a scientist,and much less a' charlatan, than the one who, in the days of empiricism, proceeded upon the theory that the more he roic the dose the more probable the cure, although he couldn't tell why he expected certain results from certain medicines. The Pure Food Bill, if it ccatained'no other provisions than those relating to labeling medicines, and if it had no other effect than that of mak ing it easier for physicians to per- , suade patients of the folly of dos ing themselves with harmful med icines, would be one of the most beneficial laws recently enacted. While considering its benefits, it should be remembered that Mr. Cannon, of Illinois, if be is not misquoted by Washington corres pondents, used to call the agitation in its behalf "the damn foolish ness of fanatics." It was not until he had been pounded into submis sion by the battering ram of pub licity that the Speaker cried "per secution" and permitted its pass age. Like the Appalachian Bill, which will be passed eventually by the American press, 'the Pure Food Bill failed to interest the Speaker because it meant pork to no poli- . tician and votes to no tartv.. - Louisville Courier-Journal. .
