DOUBLES ABOUND AT TOLEDO Two Owners Take a Pair of Races and Jockey Jones Rides Three Winners. TOLEDO, Ohio, August 15. After racing in closest pursuit of Colonel Taylor until midway of the stretch, J. F. Winschers Uncle Bei t took command and scored an easy victory over Silence and Marmite in the fifth race, which attracted the best field of the card at Fort Miami Park this afternoon. A big dog ran in front of Shifty and Marmite opposite the eighth post in the stretch when both were racing in a contending position. Shifty apparently jumped on the dog, which was killed instantly, and the Parson representative immediately dropped out of con-j tention. J Trainer AVinscher made it a double with the victory of Uncle Bert when Quincy AVard captured the second race for his stable after leading throughout. It was the fourth consecutive victory for Uncle Bert. E. E. Sterrett also provided two of the winners in Carl Roberts and W. G. McClin-tock, both of which came from behind in the stretch to win their respective races. The. riding of jockey H. S. Jones was a feature. He piloted three winners, the Sterrett pair and also Uncle Bert. Jockey G. Williams piloted two winners, Batty II. and Quincy Ward. At the conclusion of the racing he was set down for two days for rough riding. Georgk T. Miller, who is doing the starting here, has been engaged to serve in that capacity during the meeting at the Hawthorne meeting, Chicago, opening September 30. Charlestonian and Nightstick, the property of A. C. Woollat of Windsor, arrived here today. The weather was fine and a crowd of 6,000 witnessed the sport.
