C. J. FITZ GERALDS LUCK NEW YORK, N. Y., July 8. Christopher J. Fitz Gerald has loved horses all his life and he has spent most of his life looking at them either as a follower of racing or as an official of the Jockey Club. His affection even goes so far that he wants pictures of horses around him. Recently he saw in an auction-room a painted study of several horses and bid 50 for it. He took the painting home and had it cleaned, and discovered he had purchased a work of Isaac Van Ostade, a Dutch master of the seventeenth century. The painting had been in the Baring and Dunmore collection in London. It is said an offer of 5,000 had been made for the painting, but Mr. Fitz Gerald says it is not for sale.
