January 10. -We nW William Puke aataMai the t bataaM grill the other day. He said: "Why havent yon been out to see my year lings."

Cochran telephoned and -aid he would Ike to see some horses and that after ihe trip lie had aa he Olympic he was now about ready to look some over. We motored out to Mai-ons Lnff it 1 -e and moi Duke at his stable With the wealth of India Prince Aga Kiiau ai his hack thi- summer at Deaarine, he was able to purchase what he waire.i at the sales.

Arc de Triomphe. Bruleur and Kwang-8a. Among the lot are brothers and sisters to no.ed . performers. They will not be wanted for tiie races until the end of next June, -o they are only walk bag, trotting and cantering. Take them right through and they impress cue as being big two-, year olds. They look hard and healthy. There are just under thirty of them, and certainly if looks go for anything they will render a good account ..f themselves. Duke iias nothing again-t big two year-olds.

Before these two-year-olds J left chantilly for Maisons-Lafitte. rumor says . that Duke moved them along a bit. and this filly could fairly fly. She is not a heavy filly and has ! plenty of size and awality. They jwiid something , like one hundred rhoii-and and some odd francs for . lor. We adjourned to the house f«r tea and tiif- . ford Cochran complimented Duke on the condition . of his horses and what a good-looking lot he had 5 and -aid he felt positive the Indian prince would • have a pleasant debet on the turf. Duke said that , he had been fooled before sometimes in horses and I. • knew he would sometimes be fooled again, but he really thought he had some runners for this 1 year. As we were saying good-by we asked Dnke which . horse he considered the best he ever trained. Without a moments hesitation he replied Prestige and » MacKinley. It surprised us ami we asked if Mat -Ktaley was that sort of a hor-e. "Indeed he was." ! I said Duke, and added. "Fiank will tell you the [ j . s.-me thing." The motor whs turning, for with a ! ! "Goad night, gentlemen, come out any time, youre j always welcome." from Duke, we are sism 111.1k-1 ing a quick run into Paris.
