at the hunt meetings In the cast next year Fre iueutly high class jumpers have developed from just such a lot as Mr Humphrey took from Ken ¬ tucky to Virginia recently He has been eager to ecure a horse to run in his colors in the Kentucky Endurance Stakes this fall but failing to discover anv performer lie could buy reasonably to run in his interest in tho big fourmile race he concluded to wait until another season to make a nomination in this event He was willing to enter Sir Catesby witli Lehans consent but the latter concluded he would not attempt to train that old performer to run
