How the Racing Stables Train and Treat Their Apprentices. Their Day B««rinn nt IlBir-l'tut Th«« In the Morning und Thry Go to II«il ut KlRHt at . 1S96.] The persoi-ine] of ag-rcntracinp: stable consists first ol the trainer, second the, premier jockey, thirdly of the stable toys and fourthly of the apprentices;. Ihese Inst form the last rung of the ladder t.tiat leads to turf fame nnd for-'tune. These apprentice boys form about, one-half of the stable's help; to, o string- of 20 horses there nre. usually ten. meii 'and ten boys, an<l nearly all Ihc latter belong to 'tJie apprentice class, -The-'reason for, tnfcing..adynn-.; tage of the apprentice law is that if tie, preen boy turns out well, no unscrupulous competing 1 trainer cun lure the boy iiway from his original employer. And ngain it places the'boy under leg-id con-, frol, so ths-t his parents know exactly his and their rights. The maj&rity of these koys are secured at the express wish of their parents, who know that the boy apprenticed to the stable of Mr. August Bel- jnont. the Messrs. Kec-ne, Morris, Beard, Dwyer, Tlobart, or even to the smaller stables, will be well fed, clothed and looked alter generally. It is not alone humanity that prompts tfcis good-and even liberal treatment, but. self interest ns well, bewuse if maltreated or poorly fed the boy will run n.way. Some of Llicse boys are secured from various reformatory institutions aud homes. Harry Griften, the premier jock- t;y for ^^r. Aug-ust Belmont, who won. this year's suburban with Henry of Xavafre, is a boy out of tl»a Cutholic rirotectoi-y in \Vestcbcster county, nnd is nn exceptionally well mannered and well behaved young man, and one of the best jockfTK this: country over produced. He wns apprenticed to James Shields, and learned, most of what he knows at Guttenberg of malodorous fame- but it did not spoil Griffon, who now earns a salary of $15,000 a year, besides the usual fees of ten dollars for losing and $25 for winning mounts. Generally speaking-, however, owners d ull trainers are wai-ned neither to" harbor nor employ him. Work commences each day in the rating season at 3:30 in the morning; the "string" of 20 horses is divided into two "sets" of ten. each; the first set is exercised and then breakfast for'nil hands at six'o'clock; after this the second set is exerc-iseO,; this is finished about nine o'clock. Then everything- is cleaned up about the stable, racing- gear, stable yard aad sheds; after the work is over play for the rest of the day. At eight o'clock in. the eveniiny everybody goes to bed. To cxpcrienc.: just how well they fare in one of those groat racing- establishments. I wos'in- vited recently by tihe tra.iner of a stable belonging to one of the mos,t distJu- pnishea men on the turf in this conn- try, to dine with, him/informally of course. • The menu.consisted of potato soup -with rice, deliciously seasoned, roost mutton, boiled potatoes, green peas, fried bananae;.cabinet pudding, cream SLUce and tea! ' Now, do you know many who' dine BO much better than 'this! The boys get the some. They are great on. hot biscuit and pie, n.nd- without both no racing stable can ever have- any luck. It is considered a hoodoo to run a stable without these conditions, particularly pie. Of course there is a oook attached to each stable who markets for the entirte establishment when he is a good steward; if not, the foreman, or sometimes one of the men. • The strictcstdiscipline is maintained If a boy comes late to a mea.1 he ie shutout bf t,hedin:ing-room ond goes hungry' until the next meal. Fights, bad language and general cussedness, when displayed, ui-e punished by fines, extra work and in the case oi the smaJlor boy, in extreme cases, he learns to know the taste of a strep. While the stable is in winter quarters, the teacher from the nearest school village comes every nigln to the farm to teach, attendance being -obligatory on the boys. Three prizes are distributed every week among the best Fcbolars. Attendance at church or. Sundays is also obligatory. ' The stable buildings nre two in number, opposite each other on either side of a quadrangle, which forms the stable yard. Around all runs n covered walk, culled the "shed," where the "siring" OLNEY AND SALISBURY. A SHORT JOURNEY TO CALIFORNIA .-.:••;•-:/•.' : 'IN- V , " : • • '.

Although »t Pronent They Are Widely »t Variance Upon the Form* of the Flau, Their JJea-otlntlonn Will , Terminate In fcucc«HB. The published correspondence between the United States and .the British governments' regarding arbitration shows what progress has been made und what .arc the obstacles in the way of satisfactory results. The correspondence, says the Youth's Companion, relates both to the Venezuela b'oundury, and to arrangements for a treaty of general arbitration. In both Instances the two governments differ as to what shall be included in plans ol arbitration. As to Venezuela. Lord Salisbury insists that occupied territory, by which he means territory that was occupied iu pood faitli by British subjects January 1, 1S8T, shall not be subject to the decision of a tribunal arbitration. The British proposal is that there Eh.:ill be a commission of four — two. British subjects and two citizens of the United States—which shall investigate and report upon all questions of fact concerning the rights of Spain and of the.Netherlands, respectively, a.t the time that Great. Britain acquired British Guiana. If the governmr-ntsof Great Britain and Venezuela, on the basis of this report, are not able to agree, upon a boundary line, each of them is to nominate an arbitrator and • these two a third, and the three are to constitute a tribunal of arbitration. The boundary line drawn by this tribunal is to bfi binding- upon both countries, with the important proviso already mentioned, that it shall not give to Venezuela any part of the temtory-whicVi has been settled by British subjects. Secretary Olney points out three objections to this proposal: First, that the commission of four might be equal ly divided in its opinions; second, that no provision is suggested for determin ing the existence and good faith of Brit ish settlements in'the disputed terri tory; mid, third, that under the pro posed reservations, if- the tribunal should award certain territory to Venezuela, it would depend upon the caprice of Great Britain whether or not she got it. There are other difficulties. uhat questions shall go before the proposed tribunal? And shalUhe awards of the is waJked in, bad weather.

' . '. But with reference to more impor tant questions, and.' especially those which involve-.territorial .claims; there is a wide,.difference :of opinion.
