1 I I NOTES OF THE TURF. The Juvenile has been one of the star two-year-old features at Morris Park since it was transferred from old Jerome Park in 1892. Some of the past winners, such as Dr. Rice, Casseopia, Firearm, Glenheim and Doublet, have since been prom inent factors in the game, but it remained for Tommy Atkins to secure the additional honor of the fastest time ever made in the Juvenile. The best of his predecessors failed to show better than the even minute, but the Masetto youngster came home in 0:59i besides repeating the Keene triumph of last spring. J. Mooney, St. Louis.— The bet is off. My Gypsy opened at 4 to 5. G. J. Jaeger,£St. Louis.— Kentucky Farme* was 8 to 5 place, 1 to 2 show. Subscriber, Chicago.— The odds quoted on Thrive were wrong. They should have read, place, 2 to 1 ; show, evens. G. W. McKee, Windsor, Ont.— Chopin, place, 3 to 5 ; show, out. G. W.
