This will be shocking to a host of people, for no man of the west has lieen more widely known in racing and breeding for approximately the last thirty years. He was a Missourinn, and being but fifty-two years of age might reasonably have been expected to remain longer. He leaves a widow, having married iu 100!, but no children. While a youngster and clerk iu a St. Louis clothing store he began to dabble in backing horses, and with such success that he embarked in hookmaking. In this vocation lie thrived greatly and branched out into further business as an owner. His first race horse was the sjiecdy mare Pennyroyal, which lie bought from Eugene L-eigh at Guttenbcrg in February, 1892. She Avon many races for him. Xext he bought Mont-flair and Grafton. He accumulated horses rapidly that could win, and with Felix Carr to ride them soon played an important part in western racing, from Chicago to San Francisco. Fortune smiled on him in everything, and lie became a wealthy man. lie founded the famous Woodland Stud near St. Louis, and in -time had nearly 200 brcod mares there, with Sain, itauuockburn, Foul Shot and other atallions in service. As a breeder he was for a long time highly successful, Sain in particular sending out many remarkable racers. Of these Jack Atkin was probably best, but Xealon, Otis, Sager and many others of Sains progeny were of high class. Business reverses of various kinds beset Mr. Srhrellicr In the course of the last decade, causing him to cell his fine Woodland property at. much less Hum Its value and dispose of his bloodstock holdings until he had but Jack Atkin and a few brood niarcH left at the time of liis death.
