A GREAT RACE MARE PASSES AWAY. Brief Account of the Performances of the Granddam of Salvidere. Lexington, Ky., December 2S. Sallie McClelland died here this week and was believed to be safe in foal to Star Ruby at the time of her death, though she had not had a foal since 1902, when her produce was Martha Gorman, by Sir Dixon. Sallie McClellands most famous producing daughter, Sallie of Navarre, the dam of Salvidere, now owned by .Mr. II. P. Whitney, was shipped from here to Brookdale Stud not long since, in foal to the French stallion, Adam. Mr. Whitney now has a handsome weanling half-brother to Salvidere, a colt by the Brighton Handicap winner, Broonistick. Sallie McClelland was retained by Mrs. Byron McClelland for sentimental r.casons when her late husbands breeding stud was dispersed, some years ago. Her passing removed the last relic of the famous McClelland racing establishment once so powerful in the days" when such stars as Ccsarion, Bermuda, Maceo and Henry of Navarre carried his colors. Sallie McClelland was one of the great marcs of American turf history.

Homer, Kingman, Higii Tariff, Iolero. Terriiier, Fairview and Sirocco, she held her own worthily and none was too fast to succumb to her at one time and another. As a two-year-old she won the Debutante Stakes and Great Eclipse Stakes at Morris Park; the Surf Stakes, Autumn Stakes and Great Eastern Handicap at Shecpshead Bay; Atlantic--Stakes at Monmouth Park and the Spinaway Stakes at Saratoga.
