Belton is on for today. YESTERDAY'S EVENTS. The first race yesterday was a three- eighths mile dash. Billy Mack and Jenny Lind ran a close race and the time was fast—86$ seconds. Joe Lee was third, and Nigger Baby fourth.. The Second race was a three-fourths dash. Me Too was expected to win, '-and he did in 1:22. Ansel Jr. ran a •close second, and Kokomo came out as ie did on the Fourth—well in the rear. The third was a half-mile dash and •was looked forward to with interest. Ida M. won it prettily in 62, which was •slow. Jenny Xiind ran second, and 'Country Boy, 'a Britt quarter-horse, •showed great speed half way round, 'but could not 'hold out. The last race was a five-eighths mile 'dash and was the occas.'on of lively .guessing. Billy Mack was held out of 'the half-mile'raoe for this, and was expected to give<Gildersleeve a close pulL He failed to do it, however, and Ben. 'Smith's horse ran away from bim and .Jack Kline in 1:04. All the races were exciting and the horses were in good trim. The dash race does not-last long, and there is no ~f ooling on first heats. TODAY'S RACES. The hot race today is the mile dash, in which Gildersleeve, Ida M., Me Too, -and some of the others will meet. It will be exciting, Ida M. ran her mile ^and mile and a half on the Fourth t» warrant the belief that she can make •any mile horse work. Me Too holds the state record, and Gildersleeve cam Tun so that.many believe him a sure winner. • . A BIG- DAMAGE SUIT. TPapers Are Served In a. Salt Whlcli Will Attract Attention — $5,06O "Wanted. . Clarke & «Gdhenour and Sullivan & McMahon -have begun a suit against Ohas. B. Morehouse and ithe State Bank of Bancroft for $5,000. Theair client is a man named Schemmerhom, who has figured on the court docket until the laflt term wtien an indictment -against hitr^was dismissed. He lived formerly near Bancroft, and was indebted to the defendants in this suit at the time :he «old his property and moved to Montana. He is the man whom Geo. W. Skinner and Sheriff Graham pursued and captured in that state and held under arrest until the money was rfonthcoming for his Bancroft indebtedness. It is for this false imprisonment, 'as he alleges, that he wants $5,000. 'It is claimed that at the time he wasfarrested he had property in Kossuth, -and that there was no reason for the arrest whatever; The prosecution was never continued afjier be paid, and %ie'Considers it illegal and .injurious to make criminal arrests for the sole purpose of collecting money.

Drake's ah* cestry the Capital gives the following interesting items about his life in Iowa: Francis M. Drake lived at Drakeville Until 1859, When he removed to tfatoa* Vllle, AppanOose county, While living at Drakeville he made two trips to Cal* ifofniaj The ftfst one was with a train of slfc six-ox teams that he orgaflizjd. He had with him sixteen men and a boy. On the way but he was attacked at Horseshoe Send, Platte river, by several hundred Pawnee Indians. But the attack was repulsed, the Indians leaving nine dead. Mr. Drake singled out the chief and killed him with a blow of his musket, This demoralized the enemy and they fled. After arriving in California he engaged in the stock business. Next winter he returned by sea. In 1864 he again crossed the plains, this time with a drove of cattle. He had no little difficulty in getting back. He started on the steamer Yankee Blade, which was wrecked on the Pacific coast, and 800 lives were lost. The narative says that he escaped by swinging down a hawser and securing a small boat. With this boat he saved many lives, making three trips, to the barren coast; near by. Here they subsisted for five days on raw meat. They were pi6ked lip by the steamer Goliah and taken to San Francisco. The next time he embarked on the steamer Golden Gate. She caught fire, but managed to reach her, destination in November. Returning home he went into the mercantile business with his father and brother. When the war broke out, which /was while he Was living at Unionville, he assisted in organizing a regiment for the defense of the southern border of the state, after his company failed to get into the second regiment, for which 1 it was designed. The border* regiment was commanded by John Edwards, then speaker of our house of representatives. Captain Drake's command was Company A, In September, he was made major of the regiment. The regiment attacked Patten, a rebel leader, who had driven Col. Crainor with a body of union troops out of Missouri. Patten was driven across Platte river near St. Joseph. Gen. Prentiss then put Major Drake in command at St. Joseph. The forces there consisted of half his own regiment, some Kansas cavalry and a battalion of Ohio infantry. He held the post during Mulligan's campaign in Missouri, and successfully repelled an attack by Governor Jackson with a body of ^lis- sourians, who came down on St. Joseph flushed with victory in the capture of Mulligan at Lexington. ' <\ In 1862 Major Drake was commissioned lieutenant-colonel of the Thirty- sixth Iowa regiment, then just raised in the southern part of the state. With this command he continued during the war, frequently commanding it, and' sometimes in charge of a brigade. He was wounded at Mark's Mills, Ark., where he was left for dead. Prior to this time, at a ford on the Arkansas river, Col. Drake with 500 men if ought Marmadutce's whole division for half a day. He was brey«tted brigadier general in February, 1865. H« was mustered out in September, 1865, after having commanded a brigade for several months. Since the war Gen. Drake, as is well known, has been engaged in railroad projects, having been largely instrumental in the construction of the line of road from Keokuk to CentervHle. He was the first president of the Missouri, Iowa, ana Nebraska .road. He has also been engaged in mercantile business; besides being a lawyer, having for his partner at one time, Amos Harris, a distinguished lawyer of 30 years ago, and now living in Kansas. Another partner was Andrew J. Baker, who has been attorney general of both Missouri and Iowa. Throughout, from boyhood, the life of Gen. Drake has been an active one, and useful to the community in which he lives as well as to the state. The noble institution in this city which bears his name is largely the product of his munificence and liberality. Our next governor was married in 1855, shortly after his second trip to California, to Mary J, Lord, a native of Nova Scotia. Money, I have unlimited money to loan on long or short time, B. W.

They took a bee line for home, but were delayed by a storm. They started at 5:10 o'clock Sunday morning and did not arrive till 9 o'clock Monday morning, The Algona ball club challenged the Mulronies to play a game at Algona or Whittemore for $100 a side. The latter respond that they will play for $25 a side providing 'the game is at West Bend, They are willing to play the return game if the Algona club wants to, but are not willing to make a match game on a new ground for a purse, as some of the Palo Alto papers talked a few weeks ago.

When the actress and the ftttthor met, the former passed oh the othef aide; the latter pulled his hat down ovot his eyes. Each murmured something not at all complimentary to the other. Then Sarah Bernhardt left the Come' die Frnnoaise, went to America, where she made her first triumphal tour, and returned to France. Upon her arrival in Paris she entered into negotiations with Raymond Deslande, manager of the Vaudeville. She asked nothing bet* ter than to play there. But what should she play? She did not wish to return to classical roles. She wanted an entirely new play, which should bring out all her qualities. "There is only one man who can write the play you want," said Des- lande. "That man ia Bardou." "Sardoul" cried the actress. "Such a disposition, incapable of doing justice to an artist. Moreover, irritable, brutal, ft man who runs tip against everybody, who"— 1 ' Very well,'' replied Deslande, "let TIB say no more about it." He went to see Sardou and told him that he must have a play for Sarah Bernhardt, "Sarah I" exclaimed the writer. "Sarah I Such a disposition I Crabbed, disagreeable, quarreling with every: body, who"— "Very well, very well, it is quite understood." And three months after Sardou read "Fedora" to Sarah, who, radiant, threw herself on the author's neck in the presence of Deslande. "Ah I Deslande," said Sardou, "what did I toll you? How gentle she isl How sweet I How adorable I" "And he!" rejoined Bernhardt. "How amiable he isl How he appreciates real talent, and how obliging! Embrace me, Raymond!"
