the magnitude of the sport of foxhunting America, though when croea are ridden

Uncle Sam Gives Johnnie Bull Hints
on Racing: Greyhounds.
"The Americans," says the London
Field of recent date, "have given us the
advantage of practical hints, generally
known as notions or wrinkles, in many
things, sport Included. Unfortunately we
English are skrtcln accepting a 'wrinkle,'
especially "when It comes from a com
paratively new country. "We might men
tion as a' passing 'instance of our con
tention the starting machine, which has"
been used on Australan race courses to
the greatest advantage for several jears,
and also in America, yet which the Jockey
Club only recently adopted, and then In
a piecemeal shape, after long cogitation
and practical trial.
"The latest 'notion in sport comes from
America in connection with the registra
tion of grej hounds. Somo six or seven
ears ago, when the National Coursing
Club In England decided that every lit
ter of greyhounds must be registered
within two months of whelping by merely
recording the number and sexes of the
whelps, it was hoped that a Oheck had
been put upon a prevailing fraud In the
pedigrees of puppies But at the same
time there were discerning people who
suggested that the powers that be had not
gone far enough; in other words, there
was still a convenient loophole for the
perpetration of malpractices.
"The American coursing authorities
copied tills regulation, but they were not
long In discovering the one thing need
ful to complete the legislation namely,
tho registration of the colors and mark
ings of every whelp In a litter, and they
havo gonq.atep further, by enacting that,
the date of?! every service must in like
manner be. registered It is now, theie
fore, almost impossible to mix the mem
bers of two or more litters of grev hounds,
either designedly or even accidentally,
and we may now hope that our national
coursing club will ere long perceive the
necessity of taking a leaf out of the book
of their much .younger and withal enter
prising confreres of the American coursing'
"-It is also worthy of note thatthe Amer
icans, When they formulated &. code of
coursing Tules, decided that the duplication
of names of greyhounds should not be per
mitted, as It Is in this country.) The nu
meral nuisance has, as a matter of fact,
created much confusion, especially In Ire
land, since the registration rules came
into force nearly 20 years ago We do not
think there would be much objection to
Its being done away with, even at this
WHili RACE IN GERMANY.
Turfman Schrciber Will Invade Em-
pcror "William's Domain,
It Is worthy of note' that an American
Invasion of thoroughbreds to the Conti
nent is- more" than probable, says the
Spirit of the Times, "frith such an in
vasion the new era in racing seems more
than likely to spread To those at all
acquainted with Mr. Barnard: Schrelber,
his confirmation of the news that he Is
preparing to take a stable of American
thoroughbreds to Germany to rac6 will
be accepted' as final and cbheluslve.
- Mr. Schrelber Is fully equipped for such
a journey. Ho has the wealth, the stable
(containing horses of. hla own and oth
er's breeding of high merjt), and the ex
perience of the successful owner, book
maker and race-track director combined.
He has learned that purses as large as
$25,000 are offered at Baden Baden, and
that comparatively small fields contest.
Henco he believes he has an admirable
chance to combine business with pleasure
at the same time Mr. Schrelber has an
extensive following in the West among
tha very best classes of turfmen. Should
ho prove at all successful, there will be
wanting not a few ready to follow his
example. The outcome, therefore, re
solves Itself Into a problem of more than
mere sectional Interest.
OD03I HAS LOST HIS NERVE.
To This Is Attributed His Lack ot
Success at New Orleans.
Once the germ creeps Into the heart of
a. jockey, his career, no .matter how bright
It may have been, becomes shadowed, and
If what experts at New Orleans say of
Jockey Odom Is true, the crack light
weight oflast year has lost his nerve.
Odom came Into prominence by his bril
liant riding nt New Orleans last winter.
tHe showed himself to be a capable judge
of pace, a good, strong finisher, and ihe
was fearless. Above all, says the New
"York Times', he was well guarded from
the tempters who like to "make friends of
jockeys, for his father-was Tith him con
stantly. He has been engaged to ride this season
for William C. Whitney, and recently he
began to take mounts In New Orleans,
in order to be ready for the early spring
racing In the North. Backers of horses
alj over the country have been playing
his mounts unsuccessfully ever since The
experts at New Orleans say that Odom
will not go through a field of horses as
ho used to. It may be that in the nar
row escape Odom had when John Fritz
fell with him at the Brighton Beach track
last summer he lost a quality that Is es
sential to success In the' saddle.

Motorcycle Racing of Future Some
thing to Try the Nerves.
How motorcycle racing of the future
will be conducted can only be surmised
The high-banked tracks built for cycling
cannot Ue used with safety at "faster than
aL25 pace, and the miles which have been
covered by motdrcycles in faster time were
at the Imminent risk of the lives of those
marning the machines. It Is not improb
able that the future will see tracks banked
as high as 40 degrees, around which the
machines can rush "at railroad speed one
mile In 60 seconds being considered nothing
extraordinary so that the two-wheel ve
hicle will appear to stand out almost
horizontally from the speed course.
, Special tires that must be treated with
Jco water to prevent their getting too
hot and fastened to the rims by various
lugs and other appliances, will doubtless
be a part of the future racing machines.

Scotland has relatively the Insignificant

Harriera are also strong in numbers,
"but they vary a great deal in size and

They are classified as stud-book, cross

English harriers, -and dwarf foxhounds

hound cross, harriers and beagle cross,

Of this very valuable lot, classed as har

Thus the list gives the large total of
11,302 couplss of all kinds of hounds used

gain an idea of the magnitude of the fox

teams made up of bowlers who have not
taken part In championship games, will
be arranged among the leading clubs of
Portland, to begin about the middle of
March. These contests have been held
before, and furnished fine sport There
are a great many eHglbles, and. no doubt,
the teams to represent the different clubs
will be chosen by "try-outs." There are
many bowlers in the clubs who have never
had an opportunity to appear hi mter
club contests, and there will be a scramble
for poelUona on the teams which will,
doubtless, be very evenly matched.
