Apilnst her llnmiistical lore

She's even so pretty and gay ;
JJut she never will lo.trn how to cook.
Her gowns nro from Oallla's shore

Her father the bills must deplore
Kor her very expensive array.
She paints and she models In clay
To nmko beautiful every nook.
And ait of all sorts she'll essay ;

I'd give her a chance to say "yes" ;
But she never will learn how to cook.

Philadelphia Times : Five horses for
$70,000 , a stable of forty-six horses which
cost over $140,000 , or .an average of over
$3,000 per horse three of these cost the
Dwyer Brothers on last Saturday .j'J.COO '
and two additional horses that they
bought at Pierre Lorillard's sale brought
the amount which t'jey ' paid for new
racers up to ? 70,000 , all this is phenom-
inal. The Dwyer Brothers , who run
horses purely to maio money , just as
other men keep a store or shoemaker's
shop , will go upon the turf this year with
the greatest racing stable in the world.-
Kngland or France cannot match it for
priee nor speed and no turfman in this
land can approach it. Congressman
William L. Scott , of Eric , Pa. , tried to
match these two Brooklyn butchers , who
make their living by running horses. So
did A. J. Cassatt. But these Pennsylvanians -
ians , with all their money , found these
two men willing to pay more for the
pick of Mr. Lorillard's ' stable than any
men in America. While Bill Scott bid
? 28COO for Dcwdrop , the Dwpers added
$500 and quit Scott. He added § 5,000 , to
the price after all other bidders except
ho and the Dwyors had ceased to con
tend , ft
This remarkable price for n filly is
something new in the annals of the turf
and only shows how rapidly it is advanc
ing. Dewdrop is classed as the greatest
tlyear > old in the country. Her engage
ments are many and valuable. She is a
Favorite in every stake for which she isLe
Lo start , and the acceptances in most of
them are so numerous that she is likely
to nearly double the money that she lost.
Yet she may never come to the post. So
n-cat are the uncertainties of horse-racing
that nothing is assured until the ( lag falls
at the finish. Yet the Dwyer brothers
accent the hazard. Why ? .Because they
rim horses purely upqn business prsnei-
[ > lcs. They are rcgariled as incorruptible
and , although they arc simply on the
turf to make money out pf it , the public
Feel that when one of their horses starts
it will win , if it can. Therefore their
reputation is of the best and their won
derful expenditures in the purchase of
new mhterial to replenish a stable that
was already famous is hailed with gener
Mr. Lorillard's sale is evidence ol two
[ lungs first , that the interest in racing
is incrcabing , and second , us men drop
out now men come in to take thoirplaces.
The most experienced turfmen in the
country pi iced the sale on Saturday at
the Kancoas farm at 80,000 to § 100,000'
Japtain Connor , one of the best authori
ties in the country on these subjects , did
not think it would reach $100,000. The
bidding also showed that August Belmont -
mont had returned to the turf. M. Wai-
cott comes forward to take the place of
Jim Keene , and several new men are an
nounced as patrons of llio turf for this
year. While Mr. Car.satt and Mr. Scott
liavo good stables they are in no condition
to cope with the one great combination
which races for money instead of fame.
It is singular how the success of the
Dwyer brothers illustrates the power of
strict attention to business , and thu total
disregard ot expense in securing the best
that can bo had , and taking yfcod euro of
