OLD STABLE ATTENDANT IN SERVICE Discussing how the war has caused Newmarket trainers to employ and value the services of old men, the Newmarket correspondent of the London Evening News mentions the case of Ned Cahill, who recently celebrated his seventy-first birthday. "Cahill is the man who attended to The Lamb when he won the Grand National in ISfiS and 1871, and he was associated with that horse throughout his career. Afterward he was for some years in Captain Ie Barbers employment. "We have heard and read of the longevity of many jockeys, gentleman riders and stablemen, but I question the writer says whether thev have undergone the same hardships and misfortune as Cahill. who has thrice had his left leg broken, his right thigh and his collar-bone once, besides sustaining internal injuries. , "A mare mimed Housewife, then trained by Blackwell, was responsible for his last breakage, and yet last year the veteran was capable of riding racing-pace gallops for G. Manser and A. E. Barton at the Warren House establishment. "He has for some considerable time been the attendant of that gentlemans filly Earna. which is engaged in the Lincolnshire Handicap and the Victoria Cup, and he is as much devoted to that filly as a north country coal miner is to his racing whippet." Manchester Sportius Chronicle.
