The day was an Ideal one for racing,
the weather being as nearly perrect
as one would wish, while the Ice was
in excellent condition.
It was late In the afternoon when
Iho races were Btarted. The first race
was the 2.25, and there wore four
Htartcrs: Bcnnle, owned by C. B. Hol

purse of $10.
This ended the day's sport on the
Ice, though several Impromptu brushes
were indulged In by owners of fast
Kteeds. It was the biggest day Crystal

conclusion of the races rigs were got
ten ready for the return trip, and a
