ry, ftenteinbei' 2l '1034 HOPE Stf Aft, E6P E, iRAYSON i'ELMONT PARK, L. i. Many a ecplc chasing horse Is frolicking on e flat. This reverses the procedure, which »• years has been put to mediocre ind even first rale runners on the flat [liver the jumps. The career of Brown Jack, England's famed thoroughbred, started the .!ad. Brown Jack lias been the recipient of more universal publicity than ny oilier galloper of Ihe last few >cars. Known as the "world's craz- est horse," Brown Jack made British urf hislory by winning Ihe Alcxdra tnte, at two miles and three quarters half dozen times in a row. Brown Jack started life as a chas- T in the outlying districts of Old J Albion. His ability ort thai flat was £fcOon suspected, and, like the late la- ?lnenled Chase Me. He was given a fehot tit flat racing. Distance His Dish Brown Jack, aside from having a ^disposition which no one, except the veteran jockey, Steve Donahue, scorns' , to have been able to figure out, prov- • cd no great shakes at such sprinl distances as a mile, and a half or even two miles. He won over routes of over li mile and a half and up, aiid really became a star at journey. 1 ; of more Mh.in two miles. Thus, at nine. Brown Jack brought Ins string to a clone with a .scintillating sixth straight victory in the Alexandra Plate, and added another brilliant chapter to the life of Donahue. fror a number of years the crack of Joseph E. Widcncr 's hurdles • has '• been Azucar. This one is just about the best of (he day, many considering him the peer of Arc Light. Tourist II, and Green Cheese. Now at a fairly advanced age. Azucar is being given an opportunity to lope on llie flat—and is succeeding. A'/.ucar made his bow at .Saratoga and bent a spanking set of mile horses in fast time. He then proceeded to piove that he was something more tlun a one-race horse on the level by comind down in front of excellent fields. Apparently he will enjoy himself in his new role to an even greater ex- loilt that did Brown Jack. A peculiar thing is that Azltcar has remarkably early foot—the sort one associate.': with a sprinter rather than an animal tlial can pick up 165 pounds and run with it on a four-mile quest. One might have expected Brown Jack to do well at two miles but hardly a sterling obstacle eater to excel at the shorter, distances..., . Whether the Widcner connections Will keep Auzar on the flat remains to be seen, but since opportunities for earnings arc somewhat improved there he may remain to become one of the superior American sprinters, and to write something new in racing books.

KlTCH Croutons Make Soups Children's Be- light CruiH'hy Morst'ls Used as Lure to Hearty Meals BY MARY .

Baked apples with cooked cereal and cream, crisp toast, milk and coffee. LUNCHEON: Cream of celery soup, croutons, sliced tomatoes, Bcston brown bread, peach dump- linas. milk and coffee. DINNE: Breaded veal cutlets, marcaroni in tomato sauce, Kentucky wonder beans, grape pie, milk and coffte. <f those ri'luctant caters, that causes parents so much worriment. What the does is to serve a carefully prepared vegetable soup made with meat or chicken stock and different vege- etables every day. , Then to add food element and Interest, she accompanies the soup with Croutons, those little brown cruelly squares of butturbd toast that children love. There are several ways to make crouUm. 1 :. Some cooks dip the neat cubes of bread in melted butter aiid browil them in th L . oven. Other drop D E Often and often during those first weeks he drove her down to New Martin to see the smiling young man in the big bed. Edward greeted them, grinning. The doctor was "nuts," he said cheerfully, lie oxpectfed him to stay there on His back for six weeks! Meantime the music box tinkled cheerily away, the books and baskets from Fifth avenue confectioners continued to arrive' and to bo distributed grandly among tho patients and nursing staff. Edward's mother arrived magnificently during the (Irst week and. having assured herself that her son waa in no danger, swept majestically bff to Florida, "Yoii'ro my family." Edward told Boots as Denis ranged about the rooin, smoking clgarct after ctfta- ret. "Look after her, won't you, Dlnny?" Denis had nodded restively. Doota was still at tho shop. She would not tender her resignation Until, their marriage date waa a certain thing. But tho strain o: the long winter was beginning to tell on her. She grew paler, noticeably tlilhrier. There wtre always tlrtrk circles under her eyes now. Tho doctor frowlied thoughtfully whenever the invalid spoke bf leaving the hospital. A little longer, ho counseled. Better not rush It A break lli<b that wa,s a serious tiling, hot to bo tHfletl with. "They're /crazy about rho here," Edward said, chortling. "They don't want to lei me go." 'Inhere was a little nurse with Irish eyes and a flyaway cap who iad been on night duty for a while. Now the patient no longer requirec that service but Boots noticed Idly that Miss Kerrigan was always somewhere about. She had "an ap pbiitlbctoiny" Just down the Hall she said gttyly, bin that was cbnilnfe along all right. It appeared sh had time to spare to dawdle In Mr. Van Sclvor's doorway, listen ing, chatting merrily. February raged out and Edward was in a wheel chair. He couiti walk next week. Dr. La Purge said It seemed odd to think of the till yollng man taking a few tentative itlmout frightening slops. Better not rllsh it. ... The coal bills piled up at home Boots paid oiie. paid something oh another. Her fatiibr chafed at the restraints of the winter, also. Once Edward had spoken haltingly ot a loan bul Boots had been so proud Iti lu-r refusal that he had not men- toned the matter since. It sconied to the girl that every lithe she inet Denis these days they quarreled. It was ail right when they were In ICdward'3 room to- t'other. Then tiiey iiad to keep up appearances, for the Invalid's sake. But when they were aione each said sharp, hurting thiiigs lo the other. "How's the beautiful Kay?" She woiild lift tier eyebrows Insolently when she asked it. "1 couldn't tell yon. She'll b-: home soon, though. Mr.ybo 1 wdri't be glad." "lie hates me, ho hates' mo." Boots would tell herself, burning with resentment. Tl/TARCH stalked in and the bonds of fate seemed to draw more tightly about her. Edward spoke confidently now of their marriage. It would only be a short time until le'd he as well as ever.. ..E.!u;h_ time he mentioned it tYlb' '".prospect seemed to draw nerfrer. Tlie girl faced tills with an actual fainting of the spit-It. "CSood evening, Mrs. Lund. I'm ust on the wing. Off duty. Got i little boy with tonsils in :!U'! le's going homo right away." Thus Miss Kerrigan. "She's a pretty little thing." loots reflected. "That dazzling "Love me?" "You know I do." It was true- It was true! No OIIP could help loving Edward. Ho was one ot the world's best. If lief heart did not beat double time at the sound of bis voice, her breath corhe and go suffocatingly in her throat at the thought of him that was surely no one's fault But fine marriages, splendid marriages, had come of just such love as this. The other was a wild ness, a dream that must Ue abandoned. Denis appeared In the doorway. Ho had been smoking a clgarct in the stinroorh down the hall. , "There are 10.000 prospective fathers storlnlng up and down this corridor," . ho announced gloomily, ramming Ills hands Into his trousers pockets. Edward gave a shout of delight. "Ten thousand catlinh! The maternity floor's the one above." "1 know, I know," benls said testily. ''But they've got some ot them parked down here to keep eh) quiet." ' The nurse on duty at the dfi.'-k Iboked in smilingly to remind them that goodhlghts wore Imminent. Boots' Hissed Edward dutifully and went out In thn hall toward tlie dleViitor. "'Bye, old man." Denis paid, klckirig tlie bed post for want ot something belter lo do. "Clieer-oh!" Edward waved his hand. "Be seeing you."
