Several World' Record ltroken.
From Friday's Daily.
The dirt track at The Denver Wheel
i:ib park maintained its reputation
for being the f astest track in America
by having three records Dioken yester
d.iy in the opening races of the na
tional circuit meet.
The lirst record to go was the one
mil open, class A, paced by the quad
ridden by Cruwell. IMppin, Beck and
Hanks. C. U. Collins followed the
quad so closely as to clip off two sec
onds from the former record of 2:044 5.
Harry Clark of Denver went for the
one-mile, class A, unpaced record of
'J.10 held by A. H. Hughes of Denver,
and succeeded in cutting down to
2:0-5 1-5, a world ;s record that will
pr bably stand for the remainder of
this racing season. The third record
to be changed was the one-mile quad
time, which was 1:54. Stone, Swan-
birough, Dixon and Connihear, with
all conditions favorable, lowered the
time to 1:47 4-5.
Orlanda Stevens; the Ottumwa won
der bicycle rider, reduced the q-iarter-
mile unpaced record at lledrik,
Iowa, in the sensational time of :231-5,
lowering the world's record for that

race records at Lexington, Ky., by
placing himself in a class alone, as
the incomparable." The reco-d for
two- ear-old Allies of 2:16$, held
jointly by Sillican and Impetuous, has
been beaten by half a second, and the
honored title that Oakland Baron held
as the king of racing colt trotters has
passed ami a new name is written
above all others, and Tommy Britton,
2:loi, is the king of his age, and by
conservative horsemen is regarded as
the ureaiest one ever bred.

I'uIk on m New Engine.
The Burlington has put into service
a ne .v engine on the fast mail betweeD
Oman 4 and Chicago that promises to
be something of a record breaker. The
engine is Xo. ol0 and has just I een
given its trial tests at (ialesburg, and
is bfiug used for a few days on pas
senger trains between Chicago and
Galesburg and will then be put in the
fast mail service. On the trial tiipi
the engine, attached to four cars,
made a mile in forty-three seconds,
and on longer distances struck and
maintained a speed of sixty-six miles
an hour. In spurts it made an aver
age of seventy-six miles an hour, and
when once in active service is expected
to furnish some records in fast time.

let us not forget the meek and lowly
pumpkin. The pumpkin is not as
pretty as a peach or r bunch of luscious
grapes. Its neck is too small and its
belly too large for horticultural beauty,
but when the innards of the pumpkin
get into a stew and become involved
between the upper and netber crusts
of an old Virginny pie crust, we'd like
to see the human palate that wouldn't

for samples was enormous. A very

along the creek. It is reported that
the best samples were secured by Mor

joy over finding the "gold" was only
equalled by their disgust when they
found the stuff to be brass. A funny

Now corner a Milwaukee horse doc
tor with the assertion that beneath the
shaggy yellow blossoms of the golden
rod flower lurks germs of a disease that
is death to hortes. He claims that the
horses which eat the tempting plant
go into a gradual decline, the blood is
destroyed, the tissues wasteaway. and
they die in from three weeks to three
months. This is a startling assault
on Nebraska's favorite flower. It
should be remembered that Milwaukee
has been celebrating for a week, and
it is not likely that the horse doctors
resisted tbe deluge of local inspiration.
