TWENTY-FOUR MARKS SHAT-
TERED BY TROTTERS AND ;
' PACERS' DURING 1908.
MINOR HEIR AND UHLAN STAR
Former's Mile in 1:59'2 Establishes
New Record for Green Pacing Stal
lion Wonderful and Sensational
Runs by The Eel, Leading Lady,
Hamburg Belle and Other Horses.
Coming right after such a record-
breaking campaign as was experi
enced in 1907, another year ot sensa
tional performances has just closed,
or practically so, and statisticians axe
knee deep in work figuring up the
great season performances and new
world's records that were established
since last July by the time annihilat
ing trotters and pacers.
No less than 24 new world's records
were shattered during the last, sea
son, while some splendid season per
formances were given that almost
equaled world's records. The feats
performed by fleet trotters and pacers
were so many and of such a sensation
al nature that it is difficult to select
whicli is the greatest. The record
taken by The Leading Lady in a trial
agajnst time at Lexington of 2:07,
which establishes a new record for
three-year-old trotting fillies, is of
course a remarkable performance, but
it can not compare with some of the
other splendid exhibitions of speed
and courage displayed by the other
equines whose names will be inscribed
in the hall of fame of the horse world.
Perhaps the performance of the two
pacing wonders, Minor Heir and The
iiiel, were as great as any of the
shining stunts pulled off by any cam
paigner, although it must be consid
ered that the performances of The
Harvester (2:08), Hamburg) Belle
(2:04), Uhlan (2:07), Czarevena
(2:12), and Highball (2:03), are
all record-breaking ones, and any of
them would stand out very prominent
ly if it were the only exceptional
performance of the year.
So much attention is now paid to
breeding that faster horses are bound
to grace the turf, .and next year it is
expected that another collection of
speed merchants will appear that, al
though they may not eclipse the marks
established this season, they will prob
ably lower a number of the present
The Leading Lady's record of 2:07
lowers the record for three-year-old
fillies, that has stood for 15 years. It
was made ' by Fantasy in 1893 and
was 2:08. The performance of TJh
lan, when he trotted a mile in 2:07
at Columbus, broke the world's record
of 2:08, held jointly by John Nolan
made sin 1893, and Boralma made in
. Fleming Boy's record of 2:07. sur
passed Kinney Lou's record of 2:07
for the fastest heat ever trotted by a
green stallion, while Highball shat
tered the record of 2:04 for the fast
est heat eVer trotted by a gelding,
which was held by Tiverton and Went-
worth, by reeling off a mile at Peoria
in 2:03. The mile in 2:07, trotted
by the ill-fated mare, Alceste, in the
M. and M. race at Detroit, in the fifth
heat, established a new record for
trotters for a similar heat.
By trotting a third heat in 2:04,
Hamburg Belle lowered the former
record of 2:0& held by Sweet Marie,
while at Tere Haute Jack Leyburn es
tablished a new record for the three
fastest heats for trotters of either
sex by reeling off three heats in
2:07, 2:06 and 2:04. This lowered
Alix's mark made in 1894, also that
made by W. J. Lewis in 1906. Jack
Leyburn also lowered The Monk's
record of 2:05 and 2:06 made in
1902 for the two fastest heats ever
trotted by a gelding. He trotted two
heats at Detroit in 2:05 and 2:04.
Minor Heir established a new record
for a green pacing stallion by pacing
a mile in 1:59, while he also equaled
Star Pointer's race record of 2:00
made in 1897. , The Dean stallion also
lowered Bolivar's record of 2:00
for a first beat. Citation equaled the
world's record for the fastest heat by
a pacing mare in a race, held by Ec
static at 2:01. Jerry B equaled the
world's record for a sixth heat by a
pacer, held by Planet at 2:06, while
he also holds the record for the fastest
seventh heat ever paced. At Lexing
ton Jerry B paced a mile in the sev
enth heat in 2:07, beating the record
held by Baron Orattan made in 1904
and King Direct made in 1904 of

SOME REMARKS FROM MINNE
What They Think of Western Canada.
A party of editors from a number ot
cities and towns of Minnesota recently
made a tour of Western Canada, and'
baying returned.: to their .homes .they .
are now " telling - in their ' respective
newspapers of what they saw on their
Canadian trip. The West St. Paul
Times recalls the excursion of the
Minnesota editors from Winnipeg to
the Pacific Coast ten years ago. Re
ferring to what has happened in the
interval the writer says: "Thousands
of miles of new railway lines : have
been built, and the development of
the country has ; made marvelous
strides. Millions of acres, then lying
in their wild and untouched state,
have since been transferred into grain
fields. Towns have sprung up as if
by the wand of a magician, and their
development is now in full progress.
It is a revelation, a record of conquest
by settlement that is remarkable."
The Hutchinson Leader scharacter
izes Western Canada as "a great coun
try undeveloped. The summer out
ing," it says, "was an eye-opener to
every member of 'the party, even those
who were on the excursion through
Western:" Canada ten years ago, over
considerable of the territory covered
this year, being amazed at the prog
ress and advancement made in that
short space of time. The time will
come when Western Canada will be
the bread-basket of the world. , It
was a delightful outing through a
great country of wonderful possibil
ities and resources."
Since the visit of these editors the
Government has revised its land regu
lations and it is now possible to se
cure 160 acres of wheat land at $3.00
an acre in addition to the 160 acres
that may be homesteaded.
The crop3 of 1908 have been splen
did, and reports from the various dis
tricts show good yields, which at pres
ent prices will give excellent profits to
the farmers. ,
From Milestone, Saskatchewan,
there are reported yields of thirty bush
els of spring wheat to the acre, while
the average Is about 20 bushels, TV'S
quality of grain to be shipped from
this point will be about 600,000 bush
els. Information regarding free lands
and transportation will, be freely given
by the Canadian Government Agents.
