shifts Jot easy BROWNS CHANGE THEIU MIND RE GARDING THE GOPHER TEAM. TABLES ARE NEATLY TURNED, COMISKEY'S MEN GETTING THE BIG END OF AN 11 TO 8 SCORE. Millers were shut out. First Hawkeye to Bat Made the Only Ran in a Remarkable Game, Special to the Globe. ST. LOUIS, Mo., April 17.— Today's game between the Browns and St. Pauls was close and exciting during the first Bix innings, the home team leading up to that time by one run. Donahue was pitching for the Browns, and his delivery was proving very puzzling to the visiting batsmen. Kisln^er reliev ed "Donny" in the seventh, and fur an inning and a half was pie for Oomis key's team. With the bases full in the eighth Inning and one out.Reese Hill, the pride of the Ozarks, was called to pull the game out of the fire. He gave Mcßride three straight balls, and then thai fel low dropped the ball in front of the plate, the result being that Hill made a plain, every-day kind of stop and tossed the ball to Murphy, forcing the runner at the plate. This was luck, as had Mcßride played the game he would surely have received a free passage to first, and a run would thus have been forced over the plate. Fres ton hit safe for a base, Nichols sin gled, scoring a run and filling the bases again. Glasscock followed and sent the sphere on a line to left field, scoring Mcßride and Preston. A foolish piece of base running, coupled by brilliant head work by Murphy, Douglas and Turner, resulted In two men being run down, retiring the side. Hill was very fortunate in this inning, for if Mcßride had waited and received a base on balls, and Nichols and Glaaseock had not become mixed up on the base*, the visitors might still have been at the bat. Kisinger and Hill were not the only "phenoms" that exploded today. There was one other. Andy Fuller, a most Inoffensive kind of base ball player, who looks as though he would do nobody any harm, not even the ball, gave a weird exhibition of fielding and bat ting. The best work for the Browns was performed by Donahue, Murphy, Hartman, Cross, Parrott and Turner. The St. Pauls put up a greatly im proved game over their work of the day before. Their batting was hard and their fielding brilliant. Nichols, Mcßride and Preston captured every thing that came near them. The en tire Infield played nicely, Hollingd worth doing probably the best work. Mcßride, Glasscock and Preston led | In the stick work. The score: St. PauL ""A. 13." H.

BURKHARD CO., 61 East Seventh St. dred people saw Dcs fciolnes turn the tables on Minneapolis and defeat her by a score of 1 to 0, this afternoon. The first man to bat for Dea Moines, Letcher, made a single over second, advanced to second by a sacrifice and was Bent home by a single. That was the only score of the game. Neither Bide made an error. A total t>f only nine hits was made, and withal It wae the most extraordi nary game ever played In Dcs Moines bo early In the season. From first to last It was fast, clean-cut base ball. Ball, at short for Minneapolis, again- played a wonderful fielding game. One of his throws to first was nothing less than phenomenaL Minne apolis got but one man to ihird base, and only twice did any of the Millers reach sec ond. In the ninth inning, with one man out, Wilmot singled to right and Pickett came to bat. He sent a terrific liner between second and first, and for an instant it looked like a score for Minneapolis. But by a running jump, nothing short of a miracle. Dcs Moines' second baseman, Mohler, stopped the ball, touched Wilmot on his way to second and threw to first in time to make a double play as a fitting ending to one of the most excit ing games ever played in the city. Carney pitched the entire game for Minneapolis and was hit but five times safely. Sonier pitched the first three for Dcs Moines, Leighton fin ishing the game. The larter is an amateur. This is his first year with a professional team. In six innings the Millers got but two hits off the amateur. Score by innings: Dcs Moines 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 o—l Minneapolis 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 o—o <..-(iin««r Will Appeal.

Lyke, of West Concord, are in the city endeavoring to arouse Interest here in the establishment of a base ball team. The team is to consist of salaried men engaged for the season, all of them from outside the city, with possibly two exceptions, Ryan and Bamber. Mr. Riley played with Owatonna last year, and Mr. Lyke was man ager of the Winnebago City team. The team will play Owatonna, Mankato, Faribault, Wl nona, etc. Ann Arbor Beaten. DETROIT, Mich., April 17.— The Univers ity of Michigan ball team tackled the De troits, of the Western league, on the latter's grounds this afternoon. The result wa4: De troit, 5; University of Michigan, 0. Watkins, for the collegians, pitched an excellent game, but the Ann Arbor men were weak at the bat. Stnr Twlrler Released. BALTIMORE, Md., April 17.— John McMa hon, who, up to last season, was the star twirler for the Baltimore Base Ball club, was today given his release. The reason for thiß action is found in the fact that Manager Han lon has more pitchers than he knows what to do with, and prefers the youngsters rather than the old-timers. Bis 1 Lesijtue Umpires.

A Beetle That Is Worse Tliaa a Can. Hi bill. Cannibalism has been regarded as the low est depths of degeneracy, but observations made by F. Nordlinger prove that in animal : life conditions are existing which are worse than cannibalism, says the Philadelphia Rec- I ord. The zoologist relates that he at one I time, when digging in his garden, happened to I cut in two a large cricket, which he thought had been killed by the accident. Looking ten minutes afterward at the supposedly dead cricket, he was very much surprised when he saw the forward end of the cricket busy eating up the rear end. It takes pretty good nerve to do that, but we cannot judge of the Bensations of pain in animals of a low order by our own sensations and feel ings. Interested by what he had Been, Mr. Nordlinger placed the two halves of the cricket Into a clot of earth and some roots, ana lie actually found that tne cricket not only get entirely well and grew a new end, but judging from the disappearance of every vestige of the other part, he concluded th»t the cricket has disposed of thai part of its former anatomy by eating It up. THE SAINT PAUI, GLOBE: SUNDAY, APRIt 18, lMf. WHY luILIiS GOT OUT CAYLOR RELATES SOME INTEREST ING NATIONAL LEAGUES HIS TORY. COST ONE MILLION DOLLARS TO IGNORE THE EX-PRESIDENT'S ADVICE RECARDIXG BLACK LISTED PLAYERS. THE NEW COACHING RULE. Already a Hint That It Is to Be come a. Dead Letter. Special Correspondence of the Globe. NEW YORK, April 15.— The instruc tions which President Young", of the National league, has sent out to his umpires, preparatory to the opening of the championship season, have a ten- dency to temporize the new coaching rules. He tells his umpires in the same sentence to strictly enforce the rules, but not to be too aggressive about it. If the rules are to be strictly enforced, aggressiveness on the part of the um pire is absolutely necessary. There fore I am inclined to believe that the umpires will lean strongly to the latter part of the instructions and not make a radical departure from their policy of last season, which was tinctured with a great deal of leniency. Probably Mr. Young has hearkened to the voices of the captains and of the rooters which have gone up in a grand chorus since the Baltimore meeting, protesting against the literal enforce forcement of the revised coaching rule. The almost universal cry is, "Do not make Quaker meetings out of base ball games or you'll kill off interest." If a plan could be devised whereby a happy medium would be reached between senseless yelling on the coach lines and Just enough chatter to keep up the excitement, it would be a happy day for the national league. As it, there is bound to be trouble on the umpire's hands during the first few weeks of the season". He will be placed betwixt Scylla and Charybdis, and only the patient, more experienced and conservative members of the staff will pass through safely. The ante-season months of this year will go on record as noted for the large number of ridiculous base ball stories which have been spread broadcast through the land. Two parties are blamable for this state of affairs— viz., the advertisement seeking magnate and the grab-all space writers who stand ready to make a story out of any thing which may be given to them. The most silly of all these fakes was the report that the Brooklyn club had offered the Cleveland club $100000 cash for its players and franchise. The story on its face was absurd. In the first place, the money would represent nothing but the Cleveland team. The Cleveland franchise without a first elass team would not fetch a dollar under the hammer, because its owners have time and again declared that even with a second-place team the city would not support the club. In the next place, the Brooklyn's third-base man, center fielder and right fielder are far superior to the men who cover those three positions for Tebeau's nine. That leaves the $100,000 to represent the release of Tebeau Child*, McKean, Burkett, Zimmer Young. Cuppy, O'Connor, Wilson and Wallace— ten players, two of whom are at least second class. The days of $10, --000 payments for a player's release have passed forever. Especially has the time gone by when any one club will pay that price for each of ten players, including men like Wilson and Wallace. In the third place, the Brook lyn club has repeatedly announced that, on account of the negative action of the minority stockholders, it was not in a position to expend a dollar in strengthening its team. In spite of these three patent arguments against the truth of that story, it was given widespread credence, and thereby the parties who started it off attained some secret end. A similar story was set floating in which eleven league clubs were going to pay Rusie's last year's salary and thus compromise his case against the New York club, this, too, in the face of the league's action at Baltimore, where the body pledged itself by a vote of eleven to one to aid the New York club in resisting Rusie's suit for re lease. Should the court order the rebellious pitcher's release from reservation there is not a club of the twelve which, if it consulted no outside interest, would not like to sign him. Yet that decision, coupled with Rusie's subsequent en gagement by another club, would so seriously effect the future interests of the other clubs that it is very doubtful if his triumph in court would restore the player to the National league. The magnates have learned the lesson of what selfishness costs and learned it well. It has lately been published that former Pres ident A. G. Mills resigned from the league in 1885 on account of a pressure of business. That is a mistake. He resigned for principle, and the story has never been told. I will here add it to base ball history. In 1884 the Union association was organ ized for the avowed purpose of breaking up the National league and the reserve rule. One of its acts was to use large cash bonuses and exorbitant salaries to tempt League play ers to break contracts. The only players to succumb to the temptation were MeCormick, Briody and Glasscock, of the National league club at Cleveland. They "jumped" in mid season, and as a consequence the Cleveland club was bankrupted. The Union association failed at the end of its first season, and the treacherous Cleve land trio were blacklisted. At the spring meeting in 1885 several League teams were found to be weak, and a proposition was made to reinstate the blacklisted trio and d's tribute them where they would So the most good. A. G. Mills was the league's president and he had originated the reserve rule as well as the national agreement. Against the proposition to reinstate he earnestly protes: ed, and warned the magnates that such a mistake would some day cost them dear if they made it. Over his protest and against his warning the players were reinstated. At the close of the session Mr. Mills resigned and declared before all the cubs that so long as one of those three players was recognized in professional base ball he would never en ter the league's council chambers, ihas was twelve years age. Glasscock is stilT playing and although Mr. Mills is one of the league's five honorary members, he has faithfully kept his pledge. How well his warning was fulfilled the National league magnates can attest. Had those three men not been forgiven there W .£ U ! d J lave been no Payers' league in 1890. That Players league cost more than $1,000 000 and almost killed the great professional The magnates now often think of Mills his warning, his well-kept vow and the cost of rejecting his advice. And when they re call all this they are very sure they will ndt repeat that error. _O. P. Caylor. BASE BALL SMALL TALK. The schedule adopted by the Western league leaves several loopholes for managers to fill in. Detroit has open dates right through the season, and many of these are on account of the Sunday games. The home dates open are June 18. July 2 and Sept. 14. Wh|le abroad Mr van Derbeck would like to fill in these da'v« : May 17, en route from Grand Rapids to Mil waukee; June 1, en route from Minneapolis to Detroit; July 11, Indianapolis; July 13 en route from Indianapolis to Minneapolis- July 20, en route from St. Paul to Milwaukee' July 30, en route from Kansa3 City to Detroit- Aug. 12, en route from Detroit to Kansas City : Aug. 17, 18 and 19, en route from Kansas City to St. Paul; Aug 26, en route from Minneap olis to Detroit. Whlie iv« muddy condition of the ground* prevents any outdoor work, the men are not losing anything. They put in their regulation four hours today learning signals and dis cussing the game. Manager Walking invites suggestions in the way of plays, and the men are not Blow in presenting their ideas. "When ever a good play is suggested it is carefully gone over, and a signal is arranged for it. Base ball is becoming more and more like football. The real up-to-date manager has a signal for every combination of circumstances which may arise oa the ball field, and usually from the bench, keeps every player informed as to what the others are trying to do. — In dianapolis News. Watkins always did have this signal "hunph." The Columbus Dispatch says: Don't forget "Old Hoss," the king. Crooks. Jack has the dope book screwed down to the bottom of his trunk. ''Nay, nay," says he, "no booze for me this year. I'm going to show some of 'em up. You caA't fool with the oil of gladness aud cover second on this team. Say, I wonder if any of these pool rooms will open in this town this year? They won't need any modern morality sharks to close 'em. I'll make 'em think there's a wave of financial depression under the present administration when I cut loose with my bundle. Ain't got no inside information, I guess. No, I ain't! Watch me beat that Kentucky Derby and see these Columbus ■ bookmakers tie crepe on the front doorknob. I'd like to see this town wide open on Derby day. If it is, you just sit up stairs on the front balcony and watch 'em put up the blinds when I get done cash ing in." Several Reasons ago, while the Chicagos were playing a game, s>ays the Kansas City Times, Anson was coaching on the first base line, and one of his men was barely nipped at the bag. The umpire ran down to see the play, and as he passed Anson he asked: "How is it, cap?" "He's out," replied Anse, and the decision was rendered accordingly. In that same game there was a similar play while Comiskey was standing on the coach line. When the umpire asked Comnny the same question he was told that he was man aging a club, not umpiring a game. All per fectly proper on Oomiskey's part, still, the absence of diplomacy and the constant pres ence of truth and courage is what has made Anson stand higher in the esteem of the bet ter class of ball players and patrons of the game than any man who ever drew on knick erbockers, hose and spiked shoes. "Condition," said Arlie Latham to Tom Loftus. 'condition? I worried myself into condition wondering if you were going to take me back or not. That'll get the best of 'em in shape." After chatting about other subjects Latham inquired, "WTiat are you going to do with all these third basemen? I don't see anything else but three-baggers in sight Some of them will have to go." "Well," replied Tom, quietly, "I've got a good 'un in that young fellow Babb. He can Jump three feet in the air and pull 'em down; and his pick-ups and batting— wait and see him today." "Say, Tom," said Arlle, "He's got to jump after I get out on the field. He'll have to jump twelve feet in the air and climb that fence if he wants to be in the game with yours truly. I'll have "em all hunting stepladders. And this wing? Say, it's fright this year." Albert Mott, the Baltimore&n who is at the head of the L. A. W racing board, has had an extensive connection with base ball. Suf fering from too constant attention to desk work, he originated the Creighton club in Baltimore in 1873, equipped it and paid all its expenses. He wae manager, captain and dataller. Among the talent developed in its existence of five years were such lights as "Jake" Evans, -Hugh Daly; the one-armed pitcher, Lew Dickerson, and "Bill" Smiley. In 1883 Mr. Mott began his letters to the Sporting Life under the ncm de plume of T. Tom Trebla. a. transposition of the letters of his name. This was shortened to "T. T. T.," under which" signature he still writes, being the veteran correspondent of that pa per. In spite of the drafting last year the West ern league will be unusually strong in pitch ers this year. Each club will turn out one or more youngsters that will startle the na tives. Mullane, Cross, Boswell, Figgenieier, Monroe, McFarland, Thomas, Rettger, Car ney, Jones, Davis, Goar, Wolters, McGill, Abbey, Egan, Gbleman and several others are stars of the first magnitude, and will hold up their end in splendid shape.— Kansas City Times. President Young computes the cost of trav eling in the league for players alone at $32. --880 for a season. The salaries average $35,000 a club per season. He says: "Interest in base ball is constantly increasing. I know that, because I receive more letters all the time from people all over the country, ask ing questions about base ball matters. I an swer every letter that comes to me, whoever writes. The schoolboy receives just as much consideration as the man. because I want the schoolboy to grow up with an interest in base ball." Pop Anson is making every effort to teach Denzer, his new pitcher, how to pitch a slow ball, but he cannot hide his handjp when he grips the ball to pitch it, and the batter can easily tell every time he intends to use that slow ball. Anson is instructing Donzer two and three hours' ev«ry day, and ward comes from Kansas City that he will be a much better pither this year than he was last, when he relied entirely upon his speed.— Detroit Free Press. An exchange says: "Anson says the Kan sas CRy club is the strongest base ball or ganizaton he ever saw in a minor league. The Jolly ought to have cost Manning a cold bottle. Anson should bring his team into the Western league if he has a taste foF fast ball, and the taste would be agreeable to him." Clark Griffith says he never had any idea of starting a scheme to organize a union of ball players, as has been reported. One day at Hot Springs, while in the dressing room he playfully remarked during a discussion that it would be a good thing if a union was organized. The other day in Kansas City Roger Den zer was talking about pitchers and how they act in the box. "Durned if I can smile like Briggs when I'm in the box." he said earn estly. "It's too serious work for me. It's all I can do to remember to spit when I happen to be chewin'." Pitcher Borche*s wants to come here with his slow ball ana wild pitch, but he will not. He is at Kalso. B. C, where shaves cost fifty cents, meals $1, drinks "two bits," and other things in proportion. If Denzer should go to Minneapolis, as ru mored, what a roar would go up from St. Paul fans. The Syracuse .ball club has furnished its press box with cushioned chairs and cig arettes. Tip O'Neil, once a famous outfielder, is in the last stages of consumption. Columbus fans do not like Nate Butler's umpiring. Detroit again has the big league fever.

"SALVATOR" ON JIM'S TRAIL. A Colambns Writer Evidently Thinks Corbelt Will Not Show There for a Time, Peter Maher's friends are not only loyal, but legion, and they predict that If he. other than Kid McCoy, should be given the first chance to wrest Fitzsimmons' recently won laurels from him. They assert that Maher has abandoned the intemperance which prevented his making as brilliant a showing in his earlier battles as he might have done. Nevertheless, he then demonstrated that he was a game fellow, with a punch like the kick of a mule. He was allowed to go as he pleased, and had no coaching, but if he had had the proper training, Fitz simmons might not be the champion today. Maher's friends are pushing him for the championship. They seem to think he is easily better than Cor bett, and that Corbett knew this when Maher knocked out O'Donnell at Coney Island last year, or he would not have jumped into the ring and bestowed on him the belt as he did. Maher's friends claim that Corbett was surprised with the Irishman's powers, and doubtless soliloquized thus: "Maher whipped O'Donnell quicker than I could, thus proving that he is a harder puncher. It would take me six or eight rounds to defeat O'Don nell, and Maher whips him in a round. If the Irishman can punch so much harder than I, it is a cinch that he can take all the punching that I can deal out to him." Following this line PItESIDEXT M'KISLEY'S JiEW SADDLE HORISE, DENMARK JR. of argument the friends of Maher would willing pick Peter providing he and the Pompadour were matched. The most desirable match that Cor bett can get on in the absence of an other battle with Fitzsimmons is one with Maher, opines the Kansas City Times. A mill between the Pompadour and the Apollo of Galway would be a great drawing card. The Pompadour's aspirations t<> shine as a Thespian were erased with that final blow of the Kangaroo's, though he can still do business with the mitts and make as much money as any beaten champion. Julian's failure to throw Fitzsimmans into the New York theatrical swirl while the excitement over the Carson City fight was fresh was as serious, financially, as for him to permit Fitz to immediately announce his with drawal. ♦ ♦ • Mr. Corbett's tactics in chasing Fitz simmons from town to town are not taken kindly by liberal sporting men. It savors too much of the whining cur that snaps at one's heels in the dark. When Jim beat Sullivan in New Or leans, Fltz begged for a match, but it will be remembered that Corbett told him to "go and get a reputation." That settled it. Never once did thi Australian nag at his mantle, but took on all comers and knocked them down like ten pins on a regulation alley. In Steve O'Donnell, Corbett thought he had a world beater. One who could go down the line and get all the money, and in fact he so stated in cold type. When he saw how easily Peter Maher took O'Donnell's measure, he wanted none of Maher's game, forthwith jump ed through the ropes, tendered Maher the belt, with the proviso that Maher should not challenge him (Corbett), and publicely proclaimed Peter as the champion to succeed him. Not long after this Fitz lulled Peter to repose at Langtry, Tex., and legally wrested from him the coveted honors. Stung to the quick by adverse newspaper and sporting criticisms, Corbett with failing prospects staring him in the face, empty box office receipts looming up nightly, was forced for protection's sake to meet Fitz. The outcome of this we all know. He fought gamely and as well as he knew how and is entitled to all the credit in the world for so doing, but It stands to reason that Fitzsommons is entitled to a need- Ed rest; that too without being hound ed from town to town by a defeated man. Billy Brady voiced the sentiment of every honest sporting, man in the world when he said: "The only thing for Jim to do now. is to take on Maher and Sharkey, in fact every man now before the public and show them he is their superior. Then force Fitzsim mons to again try conclusions. If he cannot bring such a thing about, it is an easy matter to claim the champion ship and defend it against all comers." Mr. Corbett's methods will avail him little save among a certain element who can "see no good come out of Nazareth." — Salvator in Columbus Dis patch. RACING IX MONTAXA. Daly Interested in the Anaconda, and lluttc Meetings. When Marcus Daly began breeding horse* a few years ago some people thought that he might better move from Montana to Ken tucky, where the climate is supposed to be better and where he could have a chance to Bee his horses race without leaving his own state. Rather than to move from Montana to Kentucky Mr. Daly has moved much of Kentucky's horee interest to his own home. The best that the blue grass pastures had to offer in both runners and trotters has been purchased by the man from Montana. He has also been a liberal importer, and now as a race meeting promoter he has taken away from Kentucky the man who made famous the great trotting meeting at Lex ington each fail. Mr. Tipton will manage two meetings that are to run from Jun« 2? to Aug. 28 in Anaconda and Butte, twenty live days in the former and twenty-nine days in the latter place. As these towns are only twenty-seven miles apart, it makes fifty-four dayß of racing for that locality. The pro gramme will be made up of twenty-four ■take events, twelve for runner* and twelva ior th« harness horses. Added to these will be a liberal li«t ol purees for runpers and the harness horses, arranged so as to best suit the Btables that summer in Montana. With a shorter and less attractive meeting in th« places mentioned the amount handled in the auctions by the late Charley Stiles was $1,600,000. Some of the best of the stables now at the coast will spend the summer in Montana, and if money and square dealing will attract the harness-horse men they will be there. M'KIJrtiET'S SADDLE HORSE. Description of Denmark, Jr., Bonglit for the President, LEXINGTON, Ky., April 16.— Denmark Jr.. the superb saddle gelding purchased here th'.s week by Charles Fleischinan, of Cincinnati, for President McKinley, is just five years old, stands 15% hands high, and weighs 1,125 pounds. When Mr. Fleiscliman arrived in Lexington he went immediately to his friend, Gus Straus, the turfman, of this city, and asked him what he thought about Shelby T. Harbison's horse Denmark for the president to ride. Mr. Straus went with him to Har bison's establishment, and the well-known educator of saddle horses exhibited Denmark to the admiring Mr. Fleischman. He told Mr. Harbison that it was very easy to un derstand how he, after training the horse, could make him go through the various evo lutions so perfectly, and he ventured the opin ion that a stranger would not be able to make the horse change his gait so readily, and al together show such ability as a saddler. Ac cordingly Mr. Fleischman's coachman, who had accompanied him to Lexington, and who knows but little about saddlers, was allowed to mount Denmark and put him through his paces. To the astonishment of both Mr. Fleischman and Mr. Straus, the horse acted as well with the stranger on his back as he had done when Mr. Harbison bestrode him, and after nearly an hour's exhibition Mr. Fleischman said he thought Denmark would do for a president to ride, and he immediately closed the trade at a very stiff figure. Mn Harbison did not begin the education of Denmark until last spring, as he pre ferred to allow him to get his full growth. He developed Into a first-class saddler so rapidly that his owner entered him in many saddle rings at the fairs throughout Ken tucky and Missouri, and he was uniformily successful in winning first prizes. He is a beautiful bright bay, fine clean-cut bony head, large hazel eyes, long, tapering ears, well set on his head; beautiful neck, carried in absolutely perfect saddle horse form; high withers, insuring a good seat to the rider; short back and well coupled, indicating that he can carry weight without tiring; large quarters, heavy tail, magnificently carried when in motion; large body, well rounded, and perfect legs and feet. In his entire con formation he is a perfect model. Denmark has been educated to conform to the gaits laid down by the National Saddle Horse Breeders' association, namely: Run ning walk, rack (better known as S'ingle footing), trot and canter. He is bo well edu cated that he changes from one gait to an other at the word of command. He excels at the rack, a gait which is very popular with tlX^resident, and of which he spoke partic ular!/ to Mr. Fleischman when he commis sioned him to buy the horse. At the canter he is perfect, and has been taught to lead with either foot, and change the lead at the word of command. He needs neither whip nor spur, as he will increase his speed from a running walk to a rapid canter by the spoken word. His back is so well suited to the saddle that he can be ridden tor days at a time and yet no signs of saddle marks can bo discerned on his back. He is as docile as a lamb, and when going at the highest rate of speed will stop in stantly at the word of command. He will stand perfectly still wherever left. He is well tempered and is not afraid of iteam cars, electric cars or any of the things which usually frighten horses. A hunter can rifle him and shoot a shotgun from his back and he never flinches at the heavy fire. Denmark has been greatly admired t>y the thousands who have seen him in the show rings in this state and in Missouri, and the president is to be congratulated on having secured such a splendid animal to ride.
