Eleven heats were necessary to decide
the races Friday and eleven better heats
were never seen. Of the nine entries In the
free-for-all six horses started and every
driver was after the money. Benson II.
took the lead In the first heat and kept It by
a nose to the finish, lowering the track rec
ord, which he already held, from 2:20 to
2:17jtf. Benson had been out of pasture but
a few weeks and this was his second race of
the season, making It a wonderful perform
ance, lie .was laid up In the next four
heats but la the sixth with three 6tarters he
made a gallant fight and but for a break on
the start, would have been a winner.
The second heat was one of those per
formances that almost make the spectator
think he Is driving in the race, Syrena aod
i Dick Vail reaching the wire at exactly the
same time with two other horses but a nose
behind. Nellie K.. a horse that one year
ago had a record of 3:15 and could not go
faster, won the third heat, trotting the mile
without a skip, but finishing ahead of Dick
Vail only because of a break by that horse
on the stretch. The fourth heat went to
Syrena as did the fifth and sixth. Nellie
X was fouled on the first turn in the fourth
and kept In a pocket the entire mile or she
would have been an easy winner.
In the 2:35 pace Legal Hot won the first
heat, beiDg pushed to a record of 2:32)4 by
Aunt Mary. The second heat was won by
Aunt Mary but it was so close all the way
that the winner was not known until the
wire was reached. Aunt Mary is a fine
animal and showed that she will be among
- the fastest some day. But two months ago
.she foaled a colt and Friday entered a field
with all-summer campaigners and beat them
out because sue Is a race horse and had the
pluck to stay In and win. Capella won the
third heat and paced fast for the next two
hut fell Just a little behind each time.
A crowd was never better satisfied than
lhat which left the track Friday ana the
Norsemen expressed themselves as most
highly pleased with the treatment received,
both as to judging and starting and atten
tion shown them by the management. Next
year will see a bigger field of fast horses.

The market is full of cough mixtures, but
one trouble with most of them Is that when
they do a little good the patient has to take
so much that he gets to loathe the taste.
The Pineola Balsam Is superior to other
cough remedies because it Is agreeable to
the palate and its good effects are immediate.
In a few days an ordinary cough Is gone
altogether. Bronchitis and asthma are
moie stubborn, but they too are cured by
Ely's Pineola Balsam. A remedy worth
trying. Twenty-five cents is all It costs.

Flushing Observer: O. F. Noe, who
lives one and one-half miles west of Judd's
Corners, raised 853 bushels of oats from
eight and one-half acres of land, measured
ground. In a field which contained 17
acres, be raised 1.3S5 bushels. This Is cer
tainly the best yield of oats brought to our
notice. The above yield was measured
right from the thresher.
When a person Is losing flesh and wast
ing away there Is cause for alarm. Nothing
so worries a physician. Consumptives
wonld never die If they could regain their
usual weight. In fact there would be no
consumption if there were no wasting of
the systtm. The cause of this loss of llesh
is a failure to properly digest the food eaten.
Nine-tenths of all our diseases date back to
tome derangement of the stomach.
The Shaker Digestive Cordial will stop
this wasting of the body. It acts by caus
ing the food we eat to be digested so as to
do good, for undigettel food dues more
harm thau good. The Cordial contains food
already digested and a digester of foods ns
