fortune is smiling
with a good deal
of liberality upon
W. L. McGrath.
Eight or ten years
ago his pecuniary
position was not as
satisfactory as he
very naturally de
sired to have it.
He was not greatly
distressed, but at
the satne time he
sighed for more.
He finally bought
a farm of 120 acres
out in the north-
west part of the county, a mile or two
beyond Lake C'onio, for 882 per acre, got
as much time as he could on it, and
went into the building association with
the view of digging out in the course of
seven or eight years. It was a long
trip and a weary journey over
those apparently endless years. The
time at last came when he was
emancipated anil owned his farm, upon
which he resided with his family all the
time from the purchase. Now comes
the most interesting part. These I*.'.)
acres have appreciated in value till now
they are worth $1,000 an acre. The
world now looks a good deal more pleas
ant and Attractive to Mac than it did
for a white, and prosperity seems to be
setting his way in a very comforting
and consoling manner. Most of this
120 acres consists of meadow land,
which furnishes excellent pasturage
for his trotting stock. His stock is not
large in numbers but choice, and runs
back to Hambletonian 10, Black
wood v Jr., Yon A mini, Bashaw, etc.
This stock he is preparing to increase
in a careful and select way. For sev
eral years he has been studying the
breeding problem. with great care and
attention, and has fixed his mind upon
the very best strains of trotting blood.
It will not be long before he will have a
full representation of the best. The
great Pancoast, that was sold at the
Glenview sale a year ago, filled Mack's
eye for a stallion, and as he could not
get him or breed to him on account of
the distance he is from Minnesota, he
concluded to do the next best thing, and
that was to secure some of the produce
of his sons. He, therefore, went down
into lowa and purchased a colt and
filly by Patronage, a son of
Pancoast, and full brother of Patron
2:14,"'. In addition to these purchases
he has arranged to send two of his best
mares to Cleveland, U., to be bred to
Patron. Much of the stock he now has
on his farm, is by Theseus, the son of
Administrator, by Hambletonian 10.
Theseus is a grey stallion, about 15.2,
stout, well built, with good strong
limbs, and a very natural disposition
to "bend the knee and trot." His pro
duce now on the farm, from one to three
year-olds, all show the same marked in
stinct. When hurried up in the pasture
they all move in the same way and in
variably strike the trot. This seems to
be the only gait they know
anything about. In the races
the produce of Theseus made
a magnificent showing, especially
in the yearling stakes, which he won.
It seems to be Mr. McGrath's idea to se
cure the best and then cross the stock.
In order to do this he will send two
mares to be bred to Patron. He has
already two mares at (apt. Marrett's
farm to be bred to Nutwood Mambrino,
and also two mares at George W. Sher
wood's farm, to be bred to Woodford
Wilkes, son of George Wilkes. Thus it
will be seen that his stock will be based
upon llanili e.onian 10, into which will
be introduced three new, separate
strains, viz: the Wilkes, the Nut
wood-Mambrino and the Pancoast,
and the produce of these will
be crossed upon the fastest
and best strains that present and future
breeding shall develop. Some of the
best stock he now has on his farm
comes through Commodore Kittson's
Blackwood, .Jr., and Yon Arnim. Belle
Yon Arnim is a magnificent specimen
of a trotting filly, and has under her the
cleanest and best legs that were ever
seen under a trotter. (In this farm is a
very beautiful .lake, covering about
twelve acres, to which the stock has
free access. Of course at this season of
the year the stock is running in the
pasture and looks a little rough, but all
are healthy and vigorous. It is very
natural that they should, for the grass
is deep and heavy. The idea that Mack
has of breeding is a good one, and if he
sticks to his theory in a few years he
will have such a collection ot trotting
stock as will satisfy the most particular
breeder in the country.
While Mr. Bonner has been patiently
wailing all the season for some trotter
to come up to and surpass the record of
this famous mare, he has kept her in
good condition, that he might be able to
put her on the track at any moment
when the horse should appear with
speed enough to beat her. From time
to time during the summer he has
speeded her just to feel of her, and
know that she was there. She has been
and still is in great form. She nas
trotted a full mile on the Tarrytown
track in 2:103^", and about a week ago,
in weather cold enough for a heavy
overcoat, went half a mile in 1:04%, the
last quarter in 30% seconds. The
queen has her speed, but as
the season is fast fading without
any horse making a record beating
2:08^, or in any. way jeopardizing her
great record, the risk anil trouble of get
ting her ready to start in public has not
been shouldered by her owner. The
reputation of Maud IS has affected prices
at .Voodburn. Colts by her full brother,
Lord Russell; are in great demand and
the average price paid for them was
5:5,000. This fact again, as similar ones
have done many times before, demon
strates that the best stock pays the
breeder the best. It needs no argument
to convince the purchaser what is the
best in the trotting line. The record
tells the whole story, and there is no
getting away from it.
A Great Filly.
The filly Sudie D., that broke the
yearling record on the Lexington (Ky.)
fair grounds a few days ago, is a beau
tiful brown, stands 15 hands 1 inch,
weighs 750 pounds, and was foaled
April 9, 1880. She is by Sherman's
Hamiltonian, dam by American Clay;
second dam (Jano by American Eclipse;
third dam by Steel Whip. The breeding
on the dam's side cannot be traced
further. She was bred by Ed. CI ashy,
Fayette county, Ky. When she broke
the record she was shod in front with
seven and a half ounce shoes, hind feet
three and a half ounce, and carried no
toe weights. She wore shin and coronet
boots behind, in front shin and quarter
boots for protection. A high wind pre
. vailed at the time, yet she went the dis
tance easily and finished well. Mike
Bowerman, one of her former owners,
says he will bet $2,500 she can trot in
2:33 on any good track in the country.

M. A. Balfour, on Selby avenue, is fill

Senator Beck had Congressman Kelley, the
great Pennsylvania protectionist, in tow at
Lexington last week.. After a visit lo Ash

had anticipated. " He said it was the first time
he had ever seen a trotting race, aud that he
was greatly pleased with the sport.
The horse that attracted a good deal of at

finish and the stride of a 2:20 performer.
His colts arc beginning to show up well. A
three-year-old was driven a half mile in 1:1G
and buyers are scanning them closely.
Prince Wilkes was the talk of the Lexing
ton meeting. His race in which he heat Belle
Hamlin with ease in 2:16, 2171*4 and 2:l'>>2,
stamps him as one of the best horses that has
appeared this year. Good judges who saw
this race say that he could have gone three
heats better than 2:15 every time, and one
heat in 2:13.
Red Wilkes is increasing in popularity

SUING A DUKE.
The Earl of Marlborough Wanted
in New York—True Inwardness
of His Present Visit to the West.
Special to the Globe.
New York,. Oct. 3.—Probably no
one has recently been given more
notoriety of a certain kind than
the .Duke of Marlborough, who at
last accounts was at Chicago heading
for St. Paul. According to the 10 1 i\v
ing dispatch from New York it will be
manifest at a glance why his grace
found the East too uncomfortable for a
temporary abiding place:
His grace, the Duke of Marlborough,
has got a law suit on his hands, and
Howe & Hummel have been instructed
to push it to the utmost limits. Mr.
Davidson Dalziel, the editor and pub
lisher of the weekly society paper called
Truth, is of the opinion that it will take
just $25,000 of the duke's easily earned
cash to repair the damage done to his
reputation by a letter which Marl
borough is said to have written
to the New York Herald a
day or two since. The an
nouncement that the duke was to be
sued by Dalziel has created a flutter in
society, and much astonishment at the
action was expressed, as Truth has
posed as the special organ of the duke
since his arrival in the country. The
cause of the action is due to the duke's
fondness for letter writing.. According
to the plaintiff, about Sept. 15, the
newspapers published a communication
from the duke, who was then at New
port, in which his lordship pitched into
American newspapers and denounced
them and their methods as expressed in
their articles on the attention which
Mrs. Paran Stevens and other society
leaders had lavished on him. The duke
afterwards repudiated the article which
he is alleged to have written ami Mr.
Dalziel opened the columns of Truth to
him to reply if he saw fit. Mr. Dalziel
claims that Marlborough wrote him the
following letter, which was published
in Truth of Sept. 1.
THE FIRST CARD.
To the Editor of Truth:
While thanking you for your kindness in
placing the columns or Truth at my disposal,
I have really nothing I wish to say beyond a
general expression of gratitude at the ex
cessively kind and hospitable manner in
which 1 have been received by my friends in
America. The liberties which have been
taken with my name by certain newspapers I
had fully made up my mind to treat with
silent contempt, but I cannot permit the ex
tensive publication of the so-called "Mem
orandum" which appeared in most of the
American papers over my signature, to pass
uncontradicted. It is an* impudent forgery
and ray name has Deen used without the
slightest authority. I shall be glad if you
will print this contradiction tor me, as I have
no desire to appear before the people as the
writer of a letter of which I know nothing,
and the sentiments of which I do not share.
Yours truly, Marlborough.
Newport, Sept 11.
Mr. Dalziel supposed that he had done
his grace a favor, and he was conse
quently astonished on Wednesday last
to observe the following card in the
Herald, written, it is presumed, by the
To the Editor of the Herald:
Excuse me for troubling you, but that vile
rag called the Truth has the audacity to pub
lish a letter in its issue of Sept 15, signed by
my name, which I never saw nor heard of
till some time after. Ido not pay any atten
tion to the scurrilous section ot the press or
their doings; but forgery is a serious thing,
and I think as I happen to he over here, I
ought, perhaps, ask you to make some re
marks for me in a prominent sheet like the
Herald to the effect that the criticisms, how
ever blackguard, are one thing, but that cal
umny and forging one's individual name is
another. I do not wish to take legal steps
against these people, as it would only be giv
ing the publicity they wish for. Yours truly,
Brevoort House, Oct. 16.
Mr. Dalziel at once enlisted the ser
vices of Howe & Hummel, who procured
a summons for the duke, which will be
served to-day if his grace can be found.
Mr. Dalziel was. seen at the Gilsey
•'Yes, I have instructed my lawyers to bring
suit against Marlborough," he said. "1 was
astounded by the statements made in his note
to the Herald, and I shall spare no expense
to vindicate my character. The duke seems
to have no conscience where letters are con
cerned. I have not the slightest doubt that
he wrote the letter published In Truth, and I
defy him to come before the jury and deny
it. I believe he wrote the Herald letter also,
but he may turn around to-morrow and deny
its authorship. His word cannot be relied on
under any circumstances."'.

The First Rice Throwing At a
Chinese Maiden's Nuptials.
Chicago Tin_^s. . .
In the days of the Shang dynasty,
some 1,500 years before Christ, there
lived in the province of Shansi a most
famous sorcerer called Chao. It hap
pened one day that a Mr. Pang came to
consult the oracle, and Chao, having
divined by means of the tortoise dia
gram, informed the trembling Pang
that he had but six days to live. Now,
however much we may trust the sa
gacity and skill of our family physician,
we may be excused if, in a mat
ter of life and death, we call in
a second doctor for a consul
tation, and In such a strait it is not to be
wondered at that Pang should repair to
another source to make sure that there
was no mistake. To the fair Peach
blossom he went, a young lady who had
acquired some reputation as a sorceress,
and to the tender feminine heart he un
folded the story of his woe. Her divin
ation yielded the same result as Chao's;
in six days P'any should die, unless, by
the exercise of her magical powers, she
could avert the catastrophe. Her efforts
were successful, and on the seventh day
great was Chao's astonishment, and still
greater his mortification and rage, when
he met P'any taking his evening stroll
and learned" that there lived a greater
magician than he. The story would
soon get about, and, unless he could put
an end to his fair rival's existence, his
reputation would be mined. And this
is how Chao plotted against the life of
Peachblossom. He sent a go-between
to Peachblossom's parents to inquire if
their daughter was still unmarried, and
receiving a reply in the affirmative, he
befooled the simple parents into believ
ing that he had a son who was seeking
a wife, and ultimately he induced
them to engage Peachblossom to him in
marriage. The marriage cards were
duly interchanged, but the crafty
Chao had chosen the most
unlucky day t he could select
for the wedding, the day when the
"Golden Pheasant" was in the ascend
ant. Surely as the bride entered the
red chair the spirit bird would destroy
her with his powerful beak. But the
wise Peachblossom knew all these
things and feared not. "1 will go," she
said; "I will fight and defeat him."
When the wedding morning came she
gave directions to have rice thrown out
at the door, which the spirit bird seeing
made haste to devour, and while his at
tention was thus occupied Peachblossom
stepped into the bridal chair and passed
on her way unharmed. And now the
j ingenuous reader knows why he throws
' rice after the bride.
