BAUERS TWO GOOD ONES. Lexington, Ky., November 13. Julius Kauers chestnut filly by Previous Mary Street is in demand. Mode Nicol offered 1,000 for her, Grover Hughes raised it to 1,100 and then Colonel Milton Young, whose Onondaga was the sire o the dam, said he would go a couple hundred better than that. Now Rob Roszel, the feed man, has mailed an offer of ,500 to Mr. Kauer, who is at present in New York. William Steele is the trainer of the filly and she has shown him a quarter in better than 24 seconds, the first eighth in 12. This filly is not alone one of the speediest yearlings at the local track, but one of the handsomest. She looks every inch a race liorse and has plenty of size. It is this, possibly, that has caused her to be more fancied by local people than the Mesmerist Disadvantage lilly, her stable mate, which has worked faster. Another thing, there is a popular belief here that Mr. Kauer would want more money for the Disadvantage filly than folks in this neck of the woods are in the habit of paying for racing tyols. From the manner in which she clipped off that eighth of a mile in lis last Sunday morning, she is what tiiey call down here a "rich mans horse." "If I can buy the Mary Street filly," said Mr. Roszell today, "I will send her down to New Orleans and get some quick money with her. I, of course, would rather have the Disadvantage filly, but she is beyond my pile and probably too good to take a chance with in winter racing. She is the kind, I think, that one would want to hold over and not race until along in July or August for the first time."
