Some have claimed that he started berore "Pop" Geers. on which ppint there is a contro-versy, but he did win a race in St. Louis in 1878, and there are few still ju uie amity wno can say as much.

Story of 4 tie Knapsack. McCarthy was born at Elmlra. X. Y.. on March 22, 1S55. hence waa Iast 02 at the time of his demise, or throe years younger than Oecrn. The first known of him outsldo of the family and boyhood playmates was in 1SC2 when a government purchasing agent wos herding hornes at Ktmira. McCarthy, a towhead boy. put in all of his spare time exercising the army 'mounts, and sti proficient did he become that when the Seventh, artil-tlery Joined the Army of thu Potomac he was with it. remuiniiiK with that command end the .nuU cavalry until the. end of the Civil war. Battle Held or utit.-ai.iln.t:i.t always found the sturdy lad at hand, he was fearless ajid look despvrutv char.eos even then. All of his possessions were toted from camp to 'imp In a shabby old knupsack tp.-ked "p on a battle Held. This ...ade him so conspicuous that the soldiers affectionately dubbed him "Knapsack" and this with the contraction. "Knap," hunt: to him through life. lie continued iklingr horses for the government after the wur and t then returned to Blmlra. where he soon became busy riding runners In quarter races and at race meetings tn the fairs about New YorK state. McCarthy was a born horseman and he was not afraid to tackle anything in the line, the pace set by bigger boys and men being the one lie strove to follow. Apprentice to Dan Mace. In the fall of lSfi" opportunity . tapped at hia door. Dan Mace, then premier relnsman of the country, f visited Klmlra with a mixed tab,L of trotters and runners which were to race at the fair. Among thttm was .the thoroughbred mare Char lotte b. that, afterwards became famous as thu running mate of the champion trottwr, Kthan Allen. McCarthy was given fhu mount j. her and the skill with which he .handled the marc shaped his career. Next sin I ns. when he was only 13 years of use. McCarthy, who had fii'iie to New York with Marc, began an apprenticeship with that driver, firing rather slow of mnvetnviit and thuught lie did nut make a nuh-b plunge Into tame, nut he worked like a nailer tiy.nn to correct his main fault, for he was heavy hand ed. whereas Mace wsm among the lightest of the drivels. Not until St. Louis In 1S7S was McCarthy given a moutu. Mace had been injured s-.. "Knaj.'" drove Darby, wi tilling the event. Later he drove Sorrel iJan and Hopeful In a few races. This convinced iiini that he could paddle his own canoe and In the fail of 1S.SU he mail.; a contract with II. V. Hem is, of Chicago. Next year McCarthy came down the big line with what then was a wonderful stable, lie won a dozen races with Utile Ilrown Jug, one of thrni in 2:11 3-4, 2:11 3-4 and 2:12 1-4 at Hartford, which was n vtecord for three heats. Kilverton won nine races, Honesetter two before he dropped dead at Pittsburgh nud other members of the stable were Sorrel lan and Fred Vuglas. Takes n V'lyrr With Kunners.

A fler t h V. .McCa rt h v opened a public stable and continued in that rapacity with the exception of a llyer at the -runners. I. I . Withers haling hired him for the trainer in tin; early nineties. McCarthy had many a famous horse during his career. In 1SS7, he bought from Andy Welch the fast Geneva S.. winner of many seconds Tor him. After his short stay with runner?.
