Roscoff, with Probleme and Ismael, made running for the first quarter of a mile, when Yenise took second place, with Fldo following,, Plutuß, Nubienne, and Doublon being well up, with the leaders and Phenix in the ruck, the lot being whipped in by El Rey. Half a irile from home Yenise went to the front, bnt all were together on making the turn, when El Rey shot out, with Doublon and Ismael in attendance. The last-named soon improved his position, and looked like I winning, but opposite the stand he was b eaten, and £1 Eey going on, won by a neck from Doublon, who was a similar distance in front of Ismael, the others palling up. Value of the stakes, £972.
A Dutchman once met an Irishman on a lonely highway. Ab they met each smiled thinking he knew the other. Pat, on seeing his mistake, remarked with a look of disappointment, "Faith an' I thought it was you, and you thought it was me, and it's navther of us." " Yaw, dat ia drue. I am anudder man, and you is not yourself, and we are some other bodies."
