Our Invercargill correspondent wires : “Mr H. Howard’s dog Horse Marine dropped dead while being fed, and the wellknown bitch Harmony was found dead in a garden. Both may have been accidentally poisoned. Harmony was one of the best bitches in the colony, being the mother of Horse Marine and Haroun-al-Raschid, while Horse Marine was the sire of the winner of the Waterloo Cup at Dunedin this year,”
There was wretched weather at Geraldine yesterday, and the attendance was consequently limited. Tornado won the Hurdles, paying a dividend ofL2Bs; Sultan(9.s) easily defeated Little Shamrock (7.10) in the Racing Club Handicap, of one mile and a-quarter, and paying a dividend of L2 3s ; and Alcicous won the Flying Handicap, of six furlongs, from Erin-go-Bragh, the dividend on this occasion being L2 I4a. The fields were poor throughout the day. The following nominations have been received for the Auckland Racing Club’s meeting on Boxing Day and January 1 and o ;

THE HAWKE’S BAY MEETING.
[Special to the Star.]
NAPIER, September 27.
The weather this afternoon cleared, and promises better to-night than it has done for some days, but the course must still be heavy, and in consequence the results will be very different to what would otherwise have been the case. Had the going been good Whisper and Lady Florin would both have been backed at short prices for the Spring Handicap; as it is there is no betting whatever for the big event. Believing that neither Whisper nor Lady Florin will go well in the mud or heavy-going, I shall select Kotuku to win, with Cyclone as tho best outsider. For the Hurdles, Chemist, if on the job, must win, with Premium or Waterfall next best. For the Guineas, Soots Grey will be a big favorite, more especially seeing that the race has been won the last two years by Christchurch horses; but Tiralleur, in my opinion, should furnish the winner. For the Flying, Kotuku or Whisper are the best. The Welcome Stakes also should be won by one of Mr Gollan’s pair, and there is not much to choose between them.
