SUPERB RACING DIVIDENDS OF THE ROYAL ASCOT MEETING MEETINGIN IN ENGLAND Like a diamond of many facets Ascot shines at all angles It can be regarded from several standpoints and from each there is something to admire something worthy of contemplation In Its fashionable aud Society aspect nothing com pares with it and though Goodwood may take the palm in respect of natural setting by reason of the charming demeusc In which tUe meeting there is held the Berkshrro gathering is easily first as to the general tone of the sport and of the estimation in which the leading prizes offered are held There are few more coveted run for any ¬ where and it Is a credit to any borse and on honor to any owner to be able to boast the hallmark of an Ascot victory Further the intrinsic value of the stakes competed for is oil a high level and with the exception perhaps of a couple of races of no very great worth the programme Is built on a substantial monttHry basis The dis ¬ tribution of the treasury becomes consequently a matter of Interest aud thdugli each year brings a varying proportion iir the number of races won by owners us well as of their value the sharing taken as a whole usually comes out with tolerable eveuess eveuessThe The Cup may be described as the centrepiece of the meeting the winning of which gives more satisfaction than the winning of any of the many rich stakes presented and the race usually repre ¬ sents greater value than any other prize It does so ou the present occasion though some run It close and it is agreeable to know that It has been taken by a great horse Prince Palatine had proved himself to bo such befqre Thursday and though idiocy or fanaticism perpetrated an outrage which prevented Tracery battling out as he In all probability would otherwise have

after fulfilling other engagements taken for him he will not be allowed t leave It His monetary value s a sire Is uow enor ¬ mous as values go nowadays aillT It will only be in keeping whit tlirttiitrfs Of things for hiui to have the opportunity of passing his excellenci along in the land of his origin As has so often been the case our French friends sent over some ¬ thing with which to have a cut for the Cup but while one of their representatives managed to finish fourth the other was In a legweary condition on pulling tip tipThough Though securing the blue riband of the meet ing Mr
