FEATURE RACE TO BARSAC HERDEL RACER BEATS JOHN REARD0N IN A HARD DRIVE AT JUAREZ. Mexican Course Is Swept by a High, hut Warm Wind During Day Jockey Claver Returns to Saddle and Pilots Two Winners. El Paso, Tex., February 12. An exceedingly high and warm wind blew over the Juarez course today, but did not deter the crowd from coming out or mar the afternoons sport. Three favorites, one second choice and two outsiders accounted for the card. Hazel C. sprinted away from a big baud of selling platers in the fifth race and won in a common canter. The feature race of the day was a seven-furlong allowance affair, which fell to Bursal, the public choice. He defeated John Reunion in a hard stretch drive when John Reardon appeared to have the race won. Bonne Chance raced miserably, failing to show any of his usual speed and finishing beaten off. Jockey A. Claver, who has become a strong favorite with local racegoers, signalized his return to the saddle after a five days suspension by winning the last two races on which he had the mounts on Hazel C. and Trojan Belle. Manager Winn is planning to make at once extensive Improvements on the sun promenade in front of tile stand. It is now graveled, but he will change it to a smooth cemented surface and have half of it in terraces. Presiding Steward C. F. Price Is in receipt of a letter from Judge E. C. Hopper, written from his home in Hopkinsville, Ky., stating that he has fully recovered his health, which will be pleasing news to his many friends in racing circles in the west. W. C. Clancy was a bidder for Herpes, winner of tiie second race. He advanced her from 00 to 00 and J. W. Pinkham bought Iter in. The good race mare Gold of Ophir, owned by Doerhoefer and West, broke down in her race of yesterday and probably has ended her racing career.

His temperature this morning was 104. Denmark, which won a race Wednesday, was sold in the Juarez paddock recently for 100, J. W. PiiiK-ham being the purchaser.
