BODEN ADMIRES RIFLEMAN. John Boden, the retiring secretary of the Arcadia track, says of its speed: "The new: course is the fastest in the world. I account for this by the presumption that at one period the valley in which the plant is located was the bottom of the sea. This theory is borne out by The fact that the loam is pure silt, which all track superintendents endeavor to obtain: It is my prediction that new American records will be "established there for all distances during the present season." Speaking of the Arcadia horses, Mr. Boden says: "Rifleman is the most imnroved animal there. It is my firm belief that Rilleman is capable of taking up 120 pounds to Montgomerys 100 and at the same time administer a good beating. Under anv reasonable weight adjustment I dont believe tliere is a horse now in training in California capable of taking the Carman horses measure."
