J. A. PARSONS HARD LUCK HAVANA, Cuba, Dec. 22. Multiplied misfortune pursues J. A. Parsons. This morning, after having received X-ray pictures of the injuries sustained by his apprentice boy, C. Casserolla, of Cleveland, in a fall at Youngstown, Ohio, he placed the lad in a motor car for a trip to a doctors oflice. The machine refused to start, and Parsons, in cranking it, sprained his wrist and arm. About the time of this occurrence the black three-year-old, Guajiro, trained by Parsons, and ridden by jockey Lynch in exercise gallop, fell, breaking a leg. Lynch escaped with a severe shaking"" up. Guajiro belonged to Mr. Swan, a local merchant. As a two-year- eld he won a race and was second twice.
