1 RAIN AT MARLBORO Big Crowd Despite Unpleasant Weather and Bad Shelter. The Girl Scores Third Victory of Meeting for R. F. Carman Purl Wins Again. MARLBORO, Md., November 15. Marlboro was never intended for a bad Aveather track. For the first two days of the meeting the weather conditions were ideal and the only complaint was the dust that was stirred up by the big crowd. Then today there came rain and inadequate shelter made the track anything but a comfortable place. But again there Avas a big crowd. The dust was transferred to red mud and it was hard to escape either the mud or the rain. " This made little difference to the faithful, and there Avas no lack of enthusiasm, Avhile the changed conditions did not appear to materially affect the attendence. The track itself is a sandy one that can take a lot of rain without becoming heavy, and apart from the discomfort that came to those who looked on no serious damage Avas done. It was another card that gave the sprinters fie of the seAen opportunities, Avhile the sixth and seventh races were each over the mile and twenty yards distances. Finishes were interesting and several of th starters were horses that had performed Monday or Tuesday of the meeting. Richard Carman scored his third victory at the meeting, when The Girl was first home in the opening dash, but she had to be ridden out smartly to offset the final rush of St. Angelina, while Olive May took third. Entering the backstretch Woodstock took the winner into a good lead and she needed all of the lead when St. Angelina rushed up in the final eighth and Avould probably have been the winner in another sixteenth. Five and a half furlongs for cheap onos, was the second offering and Gus Scheer was best when he Avon Avith something to spare from B. E. Chapmans old Bogart and L. Campbells Streamer was the one to race third. Gus Scheer cut out the running and Mary Rock raced along in second place for almost a half mile when she tired and Streamer went into that position. In turn he was displaced by old Bogart in the short . run home. Who Knows, one that attracted some attention before the running, was forced Avide on the first turn and Avas never able to reach a contending position. "HAPPY" BUXTOX IX SADDLE. Purl, the gelding that Clarence Buxton took from Adam Bennett after his previous winning race, was a repeater, when ho scored an easy victory in the seven-eighths of the third race. "Happy" Buxton, who i3 seldom seen on a half mile course, had the mount and he never left the result in doubt, r when he quickly went into a good lead and I then galloped along there to the end and : had his mount under restraint. Zenotta Avas 1 the one that attempted to go with Purl in f the early stages and Queen of the Spa Avas t not far away, but they both found the paca too hot before the run through the back-t stretch was completed, and there it was 2 that Tom Norris moved up and he held the . second place safe for the rest of the journey. - Queen of the Spa stuck it out to be third, . Avhile Rey Ennis also beat the tired Zen- - notta. t Gaudy, racing for L. Campbell and ridden by D. Stirling, Avas returned an easy Avinner e of the fourth race, Avhich was a dash of fiAa e and a half furlongs. H. Daughertys Glenn t took second place, Avhile IL R. Freckc Salt - Peter was third. The winner was accorded - extensive support in the Avagering and the-i, Aictory was a popular one with the crowd, r The start Avas delayed considerably, but all d left in good alignment. Titania and Salt 1. .. Peter were the ones to cut out the early running, Avhile Stirling was content to rate his mount off the early pace. When round-r ing the turn, Gaudy responded gamely and . quickly disposed of the leaders to Avin de-. cisively. Glenn, which Avas outrun in the t early stages, came Avith a rush and took se"-. ond place. Titania, which raced Avith Salt e Peter, tired badly and finished a belated y fourth. n Bodanzky, one that raced for Walter J. Salmon as a two-year-old, Avas Avinner of it the five and a half furlongs dash that avus ?, the fifth offering. He found the muddy c going that existed Avhen that race Avas called g to the post much to his liking and the result y Avas never seriously in doubt. At the end y he Ava3 four lengths clear of Panjandrum in n and No Trumps, a son of Hastings that is y faAored in muddy going, took third, r, In this race Arrah Go On stumbled slight-it ly after the start, but it really did not haAo any effect on the result, for he Avas Avell f, beaten before racing half a mile.

The sixth race was a mile and twenty yards affair and it went to Sir Adsum, an old gelding that has something of a reputation about the half-mile trades. At the end Jelley was riding him vigorously to offset the rush of George Washington. Jelley rushed Sir Adsum away from the barrier with such success that he was showing the way at the first turn and he never surrendered the lead. Jap Muma was showing in second place, while Stirling was rating George Washington along in third place. The second turn of the course Sir Adsum increased his lead until he was well clear and then it was that Stirling moved up on George Washington and moved into second place. In the final quarter Sir Adsum was tiring, but George Washington was not good enough to , catch him. There was a rattling finish came out of the mile and twenty yards in the concluding !raco when Prospector just got up after a Uong drive to beat Le Bleuet by a narrow margin, while La Kross saved third. Prospector was never far away and responding gamely to a hard stretch drive gradually wore the pacemaker down to be winner in 1 the closing strides by a head. Le Bleuet only beat La Kross by three parts of a length for third when that old fellow was closing in gallant fashion. T. J. Donohue shipped the F. Ambrose Clark stable to Aiken, S.
