KIDAY, MAHCII 17, 1011.
Turfmen Are Looking Forth to
Active Campaign In East.
BIG TRACKS TO OPEN AGAIN,
Metropolitan Courses Preparing For
Summer Meeting Jockey Clubs Of
fering Liberal Purses For Stakes.
Pimlico to Open Season.
With the advent of spring tho turf
men are looking forward to the open
ing of the eastern thoroughbred horse
racing season, which this years begins
nt Jamestown, Vn., In April.
There will bo racing at Sheepshend
Bay, Gravesend, Hcluiont park and nt
Saratoga, N. Y., to say nothing of the
smaller metropolitan tracks on the
Now York circuit. While many things
may happen between now and the
opening of the racing season, at pres
ent the prospect for a summer's racing
In the eat linf not looked brighter In
Several of the big stake races are to
bo run on the metropolitan tracks this
year, and Saratoga Is looklug forward
to one of the best seasons In her his
tory. It is the racing folk that keep
the town going both in summer and
winter that Is to say, the natives of
Saratoga charge such high prices for
everything In summer that they have
enough cash left over when the season
closes to carry them over until the bell
ngain rings in the paddock.
That the outlook for the season of
1011 on the New York tracks is bright
Is shown by the fact that the West
chaster Racing association and tho
Saratoga association are nlroady shap
ing up things for a lively campaign
later on. At Ilelmout park stake races
for this year include such classics as
tho Juvenile, with $2,500 added; the
Ladles', for fillies, three-year-olds, -with
$5,000 added; the Belmont, with .$5,000
added, nnd several other stake events.
Then nt Saratoga tho association will
run the Saratoga special, the various
hotel stakes which In years past were
for $10,000 each; the nopeful stakes
for two-year-olds, and many other
classic events which have made the
great American watering place famous
throughout tho world.
In Maryland tho outlook Is brilliant
for n season of high class sport. No
attacks have been made upon the turf
game In this state.
While the first meeting of the year
will begin In Jamestown, Vn., tho sea
son of 1011 in the cast will In reality
begin nt Plmllco In April. Such prom
inent stables us those of Herman
Duryea, II. T. Wilson, Jnmes It. Keene,
Sam Illldreth and possibly Harry
Payne Whitney nnd A. Belmont are
expected to race at the meeting.
With tho stables of such world re
nowned American turfmen racing once
more the eastern season of 1011 will
have a most brilliant beginning.

CLIPS HIS TOES FOR SPEED
Arkansas Ball Player Thinks
Their Length Hinders His
Success as Bn3o Runner.
Probably laboring under the
theory that Mordccni Brown,
star pitcher of tho Chicago Na
tional baseball team, gained his
efficiency when a finger was
snipped oft" by a thrashing mn
cbluc, Edward Griffith, who re
cently signed for the Fort Smith
team In the Western association,
has had his toes cut off to in
crease lils swiftness of foot.
Smith formerly wns u City
league player of prominence In
Little Rock, Ark., but fouud the
abnormal length of his toes mil
itated against attaining any
kind of speed as n base runner
nnd ultimately retarded his ef
forts to attract managers In tho
larger baseball circles.

Paull has been practicing Cor the
past few weeks and has displayed
some of his old time form, in 1009,
when he won the Intercollegiate mile,
Pnull was considered to bo one of tho
greatest runners Pennsylvania ever
produced. As this Is Paull's last year
at the university he will strain every
point to make a cleanup In all the
events In which he Is entered.

LANNIGAN'S NOVEL SCHEME.

Something entirely new has been
sprung by "Pop" Lannlgnn. tho versa
tile trainer of tho University of Vir

men of his track squad to run low he
makes them dash underneath a rope.
While tho scheme Is novel nnd orlglnnl,
It will no doubt be of great benefit to

Starting out with not tho brightest
prospects In tho world this year, "Pop"

Dniicm Po -n- Event
Yes, It 13 rather early in the season
to talk of graduation gowns, but
tcmpus has a fashion of fugttlng
quicker than schedule time In these
strenuous days, so before one has a
chance to turn around the sweet girl
"grad" will be needing her new gown.
The illustration shows a delightfully
simple and girlish design for the oc
casion. The tunic lacing Is one of the
noticeable features, nnd altogether the
gown Is "sweetly pretty," as our Eng
lish cousins say.
Boudoir Sets For Summer.
The new spring lines In fnncj bou
doir sets. Including sofa pillows,
scarfs, bags, pincushions nnd a large
number ot practical articles, are
brought out In particularly attractive
materials aud with pretty minor vari
ations In the way of trimming, which
makes them very fascinating to wo
men In general, says the Dry Goods
One of the daintiest of boudoir sets
is shown In white cotton voile, with a
pink ribbon design running through It
aud large pink roses placed on the rib
bon at Intervals In border effect.
This design adapts Itself admirably
to the various methods of trimming.
Cut Into strips the material is used
as an attractive border all around the
square pillow or In two vertical bor
dors across the long pillow. The long
pincushion and corset bag have this
border running through the center.
An effective new trimming that Is u
revival of an old mode, old enough,
however, to be again cnlled new, is
the fringe and passementerie border
of macrame cord By the way. wide
bands of lace crocheteH In line ma
erume cord, copying venlse patterns,
are being used as high style dress
trimmings, and this Is probably respon
Bible for the reappearance of this kind
of work In the fnncy goods depart
ment New Combination Footwear.
One ot the latest hints from Paris
Is the (lowered stocking combined for
effect with the gemmed slipper. The
designer of this pretty combination
made richly embroidered stockings,
the figures being Bowers of any kind
to suit the wearer's fancy, and set

The "Tea Leafer."
A rood deal of the tea consumed by
the working classes In the days when
Arthur Young complained of the ad
diction to this luxury had never seen
either India or China. In one of John
Ashton's works on England he cites a
case In which a boy charged with
gambling stated that the money found
In his possession had been made by
picking tea leaves. This led to the dis
covery that many persons made a liv
ing by picking Bloe leaves nnd white
thorn leaves In the fields near Camber
well and selling them to a local cow
keeper for a penny a pound. One man
said he picked from fifty to sixty
pounds n day and always found a mar
ket for them. The leaves were subse-
I qucntly sold to a wholesale merchant
I who obtained as much as 8 shillings a
pound for them under the guise of ten.
j The merchant was prosecuted and
fined, not for adulteration, but for de
frauding tho revenue. And tho "tea
I leafer" Is still the slang name for the
i petty thief. London Standard.
Whims of Parrots.
"It Is odd," said tho bird store
keeper, "but It Is true, how people
come Into n bird store and expect to
open up a conversation with a parrot
offhand. They fail and then make up
their mind that the parrot Is worthless.
This will apply to a majority of seekers
after a talking parrot They do not
give tho bird credit for the sense It
actunlly possesses. There are parrots
valued at nnywhere from $50 to $500
that will not bo conxed Into conversa
tion with a stranger nor while he Is
present, although they are the very
best of talkers. Parrots often refuse
to perform when there are purchasers
looking on, but once the store Is clear
of them they will chatter away through
their whole vocabulary as If their very
lives depended on their being heard.
This obstinacy often spoils good sales.
Most parrots will talk to a girl or wo
man much quicker and freer than to a
boy or a man." Browning's Monthly
