ARLINGTON PARK ARRIVALS Thoroughbred Colony at Great Northwest Side Plant Being Augmented Daily. Thoroughbreds for Arlington Tarks spring meeting of twenty-four days, opening June 4, are arriving daily, mainly from Kentucky. A few have been brought from New York. Several have come from western points, notably Crystal Tennant and Masked Marvel heading a consignment of Tijuana cam-pa fetters. Mere than 100 horses now on the scene are the advance guard of more than 1,200 for which reservations have been made.

The management is requiring all owners to state definitely the number of horses they wish to send. Maj. Frederic McLaughlin announces that acceptances are based on quality, not number, an assuranco, he says, that Chicagos great plant on the Northwest Highway, twenty-three miles from the locp, will have, in its second meeting, the best thoroughbred sport in the record of Middle West racing.
