KING GEORGES GIFT ON EXHIBITION. Toronto, Out., September 1. Anmer, the famous stallion presented to the Dominion government by Ills majesty King Ceorge V., for tha purpose of improving the breed of horses iu Canada, made his bow at the exhibition yesterday. The famous stallion was brought here from Oakville. It will be remembered that Anmer suddenly jumped into the limelight when, during the progress of the Epsom Derby of 1013, a suffragette threw herself in front of the horse and was killed. Her friends claimed she sought death in this manner for the good of the "cause," of which she was an ardent supporter. The stallion will be paraded before the grandstand daily at 3 p. ni. During the day patrons will be allowed to visit Anmer at his box stall in the main horse aerna. A special railing has been constructed around the box stall in order that the public shall only get within a certain distance of the noted animal, which, since the Newmarket incident, has developed an ugly mood and becomes excitable when surrounded by u crowd.
