UNCLE INJURY IS NOT SERIOUS. Oakland, Cal., December 17. S. C. Hildreth has decided that his two-year-old colt Uncle, for whom he paid 0,000 to John E. Madden last summer, will not be able to race until some time next month. Uncle, after landing here last November, became suddenly lame. Hildreth made an examination and " " concluded that the Injured hoof would have to be pared- away. "Its a case like that of MeChesnoy," said Hildreth the other day. "The trouble is right up alongside of the frog, but if I give Uncle enough time the injury will not be so bad as that of McChesney. After Durnell and Herz bought McChes-ney they raced him when his hoof was weak instead of letting him grow a new, one. As a result .the bad flesh ate right into the crown of the fost. I believe I will have Uncle galloping some time, next month and may be able to get Mm ready for the" California Derby, which, will be run on Washingtons birthday."-
