KNABP UP, By reason of some remarkable exhibitions of supreme speed, Charles Edward is one of the equine celebrities of the year and justly so. He is unquestionably "a high class young horse by nature, but infirm legs stand in the way of his lielug kept always at his best and it is only When the care of a skillful trainer puts- him in good racing condition at intervals, that he is able to run to the limit, of his natural endowment. In tire early part of last year he was deemed one of the first flight two-year-olds and won the rich National Stallion Stakes from -Superman, Be Mund and three others in 59s at Belmont Park. - .......

Ballot, 114, Dr. Gardner, 120, Electioneer, 114 and Nealon, 120 in l:37g, winning. by four, lengths with such, case as to show conclusively that he could have set a new mile record had. he been pushed .out.
