Lucille had her innings last Wednes
day on the Pinehurst Track. The Thor
oughbreds were slated for 4 furlongs.
Hurd brought out his Kinder Lou; the
rinehurst Stables entered Hardy, and
Thomas had Lasses up on Lucille. The
stand thought they had an easy thing
picking Hurd's colors for victory. But
the other two horses got the jump at
the start, with Hardy leading. It
wasn't so much of a start, but it proved
to be enough. The famous racer never
got into the running seriously. Hardy
held the polo and the advantage until
they came into the stretch, when a short

Mrs. Frank Butler, known to the world as Annie Oakley, has spun many a yarn of
old days on the plains and in the camps of the Sioux in the beginnings of Buffalo Bill s
Wild West Show. Frank Butler was one of the men employed by Cody to round up his
warriors for him. In this picture he is shown settling a personal fued between two chiefs,
each of whom claimed the other owed him a dollar, Frank settled the difficulty by having
them each hand the other the money simultaneously.
yards. Lucille, though behind, set the
pace, and showed too much speed for
the Pinehurst mount. She finished a
half a length to the good.
Lasses rode another creditable and
furious race in the mile. Hatto, Bex
and Topsy were set to it once around
the track, and made an exciting finish
of it. There was nothing to choose be
tween the three ten jumps from the
wire, and they all whisked by the stand
in close formation, Topsey a fraction
ahead, apparently eased into place by
the wise little darky.
The steeple chase ' as always was a
delightful spectacle and an inspiring ex
hibition. But as a contest there was
little doubt of the outcome after the
first few hurdles. Thomas' Fort John
son was on the crest of the wave, and
had reserve steam that was altogether
too much for the veteran Travellor
ridden by Dixon, and old George.

The match race between Thomas up
on Lambert Splane's Bannie V. and
Henneson up on Rex was a thriller.
I There had been quite a lot of discussion
i at the stables as to who was the best
horseman of the two and all arguments
and bets were to be settled on this race.
Heralded as the favorites and 'with such
laurels to be won, it was no wonder that
young Thomas went to the fore at the
drop of the red flag. However, Henne
son who is an old hand at the racing
game, went right after him, and it was
on the stretch that he made Rex open
