This race run Jfirst at tne Forest City fair then at the Brltt fair. The race will be run by as many horsea as are deemed best to reach the limit first. The riders will change horses every half mile or mile, using their own iuiteement about how often to change n order to Win. The race will be for a nurse of $300 and side bets, the win' ner to take all. The Tribune says Fred Corey will have charge of the Hancock county string ofhorses and everyone knows that Fred is always a winner on horse races and that the county horses could not be in better hands. This will be the most interest- ins race that has ever taken place in Northern Iowa and there will be ample opportunity for the sports to get their money in circulation. Mr. Corey also offers to race one of his horses five miles against any bicycle rider on earth on a §200 wager, this race. to be made at the Hancock county fair in September The program for the lair of 1897 is the best that has ever been put up, the purses being liberal and the race program has new feature that will be exciting and interesting. Glldersleove Not a Wader. Blue Earth City Post: The running race mentioned in The Post of last week to occur at our fair grounds on Saturday last took place as per agreement. Friday night and Saturday forenoon there was plenty of rain and all expected the race to be postponed but the person who had money up on Optimus decided that he could run in the mud better than Gildersleeve and objected to postponement. - He was right. Optimus can wade in the mud and perhaps swim faster than Gildersleeve and therefore took the purse, but his owner nor backers dare not bet a cent on another race upon a dry track. It was stated here that some Winnebago City sportsmen were anxious for another race and T. W. Donovan and Louis Holt went up there Monday for the purpose of arranging for a race, but the visible supply of betting capital seemed to have been exhausted. The Gildereleove—Optimus Knee.' . The Blue Earth Globe reports the race in which Gildersleeve was beaten: It rained hard during Friday night and opened up fresh again about 7 o'clock in the morning, and nobody thought the race could be pulled off. But it cleared up about noon and the owners of the horses would not agree to postpone the race, and muddy as it was preparations were made for the event. The track was so soft that the horses' feet sank into the mud up to their fetlocks at every step, and the first heat was won by Optimus in 2;OH. Optimus won the next heat in a little slower time, and was declared winner. B. F. Smith offered to match Gildersleeve against Optimus for another $200, and run on a dry track, but no race could be arranged. He is satisfied that his horse is the faster on a dry track, but concedes that Optimus is too fast in the mud, . . Racing Notes.

Webster City has the biggest racing meet this weelt ever given in Northern Iowa. Gildersleeve is down for some of the running events'. The purses amount to $3,500.

The orders are that any man, woman or child found bicycling along the right of way of the Chicago & Northwestern railway shall be arrested and the person's wheel taken in charge and sent either to Belle Plaine or Boone. The law is an old one and not strictly enforced. The matter has been revived, however, by the killing of a bicycle rider on the eastern division a short time ago. •*- •*• HA young man in Blue Earth City was scratching a match to light his cigar. It snapped and part of the head flew off and lodged in his eye, An effort was made to wipe the ember out but on examination it was found that it had burned through the membrane and when the doctor got it out the eye sight was nearly destroyed. -*- -j- -H John F, Buncombe, who is travelling in England, rriles of a remarkably destructive hail storm, to the Fort Dodge Chronicle. Here is a hail stone story hard to beat: "The hail which wrought all this havoc was not so much hail as solid lumps of ice. The hailstones were of a most peculiar description. In the base of each there was a small frosty nucleus about the size of a large pea, and resembling an ordinary hailstone; but around this there was an accumulation of clear, solid, hard-frozen ice, which radiated in curving lines from the center, and looked like nothing so much as a small cauliflower." -*•"*••*• WiUF.
