in diameter was bored in the roof of Browns stable and the bolt passed down the side of a stall into the ground Brown Dick said Everything that was in the way got out of the way The boys were all badly frightened but the colt who stood in the stall didnt didn't seem to have been disturbed If we had had hay over the stall we should probably have had a fire I dont don't see how we escaped one as it was The colt whose stall was hit is Silvertone Silver by Fal Falk ¬ setto sotto Silverthread Silver Pat Dunne said in com ¬ ment meant Ill never buy a ticket on that fellow If he was a good horse

overheard a remark that Clawson Lawson sat still on Lucy Belle until almost half way down the stretch He probably rode to orders said Coulter I didnt didn't think I had Firenzi Frenzied or anything of that sort so I told my boy to run away with the race if he could I suppose Williams thought he had one that could dry up the track when cut loose so he told his boy to sit still until he got into the stretch and then run over anything that might be in front of him himTHOS hitches THOS ETHOS J GALLAGHER
