Middle ton and Jones, of Louisville. One of the men from Ashland will succeed Brooks. The most improved horse in the string is Auriga, which McDowell purchased a month or so ago from Fred Shaller.

This one was cut down at Louisville, but is well again and will race this coming fall. Soldier Boy. named in honor of the owners sou who joined the colors, is a fine horse. J. W.
