FREE VIEW OF D0NCASTER RACES Twenty fortunate persons were able to attend Don-caster races on all four days in the highest-priced inclosure for the modest sum of one shilling each, as the result of an attempt to assist the relief funds for St. Leger, the little French town Doneaster recently adopted. Tickets were sold at a shilling, entitling the holders to a chance in a draw for twenty free tickets admitting to Doneaster paddock and grand stand. The draw took place, the lucky numbers being drawn by Mrs. Carr, wife of alderman Carr, in the presence of the mayor. The ticKets were of the value of 2.75 each. As a result of the draw the St. Leger relief funds have been augmented to the extent of ,152.75.
