Buncrort's lilK llaces. Register: The two days' race meeting of the jockey club on the association's truck here Wednesday and Thursday was seriously interfered with by the weather clerk. Over seventy-five horses shipped in with the expectation of starting, but the condition of the track made them shy and half the entries were scratched. The continuous heavy rains of the pnst few week's had soft ened the course too deep for the harrows to help it much. This discouraged the owners of many good horses, and instead of fields of ten to fifteen in each race, seven was the highest number to face the flag in any event. With the exception of a few, whose entries cannot be accepted on account of being outlawed, all the horses here ship to Algona for the meeting next week and if their track can be gotten into acceptable shape lovers of the sport will have a chance to see some of the best that over happened in the state. Tho horses are here, and with a good track they will all go after the purses. Wliltlemore Champion. Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Farley and daughter Frances were at Nora Springs this week attending the commencement exercises of the seminary. Miss Mae Farley graduated from that Institution Tuesday night. H. J.
