MAPLE HEIGHTS PARK, CLEVELAND, Ohio, Sept. 19. Making her initial appearance in the colors of Joseph Hoskins, Comedy made good at the first asking when she scored a handy victory from Mill Boy and Fair Rowena in the fourth race, which attracted the best field at Maple Heights Park this afternson. Beg Pardon showed the way in the early stages, but Comedy drew clear rounding the far turn and held her opponents safe for the remainder of the way. Mill Boy was away very badly, but closed up the lost ground steadily and in the final drive outgamed Fair Rcwena. The latter was outpaced in the early stages, but made a resolute bid in the run home, showing decided improvement over her last performance here.
