IG.-Ladys- man was one-of Ihe greatest two- year-olds of the past 20 years Ho ciirned 5111,000 as a Juvenile; , As a four-year-old on May; 30, 1KU, i Lndysman whipped ithe mighty Equipoise In a thrlllini! stretch duel In Hie time-honored Suburban Handicap ' al Belmont I'ark. The W. n. Coc stake campaigner possessed speed and could carry weight. The whllcfaccd thoroughbred proved his gallantry and the .stoutness of Ills' heart in numerous other races, He won eight In all and $1.14,000. He retired to the stud with a splendid reputation, and Is expected to en- Joy his share of success there. Yet I.adysman was a fallurc-a "tragic one—in the four great efforts of his life, with all this c'as.s. pick-up, and courage, he (lci>ped svhcn Hie chips were down. I.adysman first was a disappointment in the Belmont Futurity of 1932, By virtue of n spark- line victory in the Arlington Fu- lurllv and n Saratoga grand slam of Ihe United States Hotel, Grand Union Hotel, and Hopeful Stakes, ho was an even money choice. Ram- io HO-lo-1 Shot in Futurity Kerry Patch, a ,-JO-to-l shot, beat Ladysman in the Belmont Futurity. Kerry Patcli had the luck lo get out In fronl ami sufficient stick-to-il to remain there. Ladysman began in a tangle. Just when It seemed that lie might get through' lo score, he was blocked. Even then Kerry Patch, which had eight pounds the best of it In tile 'weights, prevailed by, less tlvi a length. . •'. ; ' The Kentucky Derby of 1933 'ii'.' will be remembered for Hie linttle between Brokers Tip aiid 'fend'['lay. and the fisticuffs between the jockeys, Mcadc and Fisher. But many also remember *hnt Uulvsninn, the winter book 'n"oi'llc which carried their money, fnllc-1 lo gel up. Brokers Tip went to the post a maiden and never "•' rmolher race. ' I adysman raced wide for nl- •751 'he entSre mile and a' quar- ^r. The extra long journey took loo .(much out of him. with', Ihc, -mi-H that when It was move on (he leaders he could hot rally.

That was the one in which all the cclebraU ed cripples were entered, Twenty Grand, E^uopoise, Mate, Faiicho, Cnvnlcnde, nnd some more. Several of them failed to set lo the post, but nevertheless the field was n remarkable one. No less than 20 started. • Ladysman ran a smashing race. Bui one oilier animal ran an even better one. He was Fred M. Al- gcr's Imported Azucar. the convert jumper. We know now (hat, like Kerry Patch. Azucar was not fit lo match biidle.s with Ladys- man. Yet lhat afternoon, when it meant 109,500. Azucar, which paid 520.80 for a $2 imltue! ticket, was Ladysman's superior. Kccom! tnon- :y amounted to $10.000. His best simply wasn't good enough in Ihc big moments, so Ladysman. one of the best horses ill years, finished his racing career unable to win any one of the four major objectives of his life. For those who follow the uncertain .sport of fishing January may be the most unproductive month of 1937 If present conditions con- llnue. Ditches, streams and all other bodies of water In this locality are swollen to a high stage from recent rains and Ihe fishing places are nil certainly muddy enough to discourage the most optomistlc. Many a wielder of the pole and line, however, Is now speculating on the prospects of n month or more hence, when with the first signs of spring, those crnnple and bass will be hungry and willing to snap up anything thnt resembles food. Experienced observers at Big Ltikn are of the opinion that sprlhf,' fishing there will be good enough to satisfy the most greedy angler. With the. Mississippi river running In Mills nayou and other pcckcts along its course theie fhould be enough game fish to fuVnlsh pastime for the ever Increasing army of sportsmen. .. , Those who cast, troll or whip a flyrod with artificial bait are reminded that their fishing license expired December 31 and a new license must be bought. Hunting licenses do nol.expire until June ''I but fishing 'licenses expire at Hie end of the regular year. Addison..Smith, deputy circuit cocurt ••clerk, has not received his supply of 19.17 fishing licenses but ex- 'wcis them- in • n short time. At least one angler lias deposited his $1.10 In order lo be on the safe side. Striking it lucky bcibre\the-re- cent rise in the lako. G. C. Hawks his brother Luke Hawks and son Herbert caught a beautiful string of 23 black bass al Sand Slough They found the bass 'biting" so Ijrlskjy that, soon their minnows were;'all used up. bill there was a plentiful supply, of fish for the Hnwks hosciioid so they came home. Hallie Craig recalls a day some years ago when he caught, a magnificent string of bream'in the old washout Jusi north of the Krutz place on Highway 01. if W e remember correctly Dr. H.'A.
