s d is s s f . s il - s e TEXAS ARRIVALS AT NEW ORLEANS. f New Orleans, La., December 12. Texas horsemea will be well represented at the winter race meet- ing at the Fair Grounds track. Several who linv-s ;t been here for some time were joined by five more today. The. newcomers and their horses were: D. " B. Freeman, with Great Friar, Ora McGee, Rose-1 burg IV., Smoky Dan, El Pato, and Monument; J. 1 W. Kosseth. with Lucy March; V. Hooks, with e Rake and Marchalong; G. W. Billerman with W. C. West, and R. Morse, with Miss Daniels and Lilly ; May. This runs the total of the horses now at the track to more than 200. Dr. J. S. Tyrees string, from Washington, and that of Ed Moore, from r Nashville, will arrive shortly, and this will send c the number here to over 250.
