SWEEPER n. IN GOOD DEMAND SARATOGA SPRINGS, N. Y., August 4. The news from France that Sweeper II. had two new winners during the past few days was contained in a cablegram received by J. E. Widener, the horses owner, during the afternoon. Mr. Widener has placed a fee of ,000 on the horses service and already six mares have been booked to him at that figure, two of them by August Belmont, who admires the son of Broomstick very much. It was Mr. Wideners intention to breed ten outside mares, but late in the afternoon he j decided to limit him to those already pledged.
