A Detailed Description.
From tho dispatches (o tho daily
press wo obtain tho following which will

PitoviPK.vct:, It. I., Aug. (i, 1881. -Soon
after camo tho groat event of the
day, and the greatest event in tho history
of the trotting turf. Jay Kye See camo
on tho track, and as ho swung into the
stretch the judges announced that he
would make an attempt to beat his re
cord. Jim Murphy, behind his own
running horse, was also on the stretch
limbering out, as he was to go the mile
with Jay Fye See, to give tho littlo (Iyer
courage and force him to a faster gait,
if necessary.
After jogging down the stretch onco
or twice .lay Kye See turned at the
distant stand, and came down to the
wire for tho word. He was working
magnificently, and as "go" wan shouted
by Mr. Windsor the little gelding sped
away around the turn, with thn uinuer
about eight lengths behind. Never did
a horo work more evenly than did Jay-JCye-See,
as ho sped around the turn, and
it M.'omed as if he was a piece of
machinery, and not a thing with life, so
perfect was his actions. Up tho quarter
lie went, with (he runner trailing four
lengths behind, and as he sped into (he
straight Itithers cut him loose. Faster
and faster wero his strides, and it was
evident "lid" meant to send him.
At the half tho watches registered 1 :0."i,
a 2 ;10 gait, and if he could hold his own
forthe last half he would accomplish an
unprecedented feat.
Around thetmnor turn it seemed as if
ho was Hying, and fast as had been his
gait on the baekstretch, it was forced up
now to something terrilic. On anu on
he wont, without a suspicion of a break,
passing the three quarter post in 1 :.'.,
At this point the runner came up even
with the trotter, arid now began the final
struggle. Down he came, without a
skip, ever stride trotting in the mo
montous race against the fast-flying
seconds. ISithers had not yet used his
whip, and as tho gallant flyer sped down
to the stand, and under the wire, (here
was a momentary bustle, and then
suddenly the cry, "He has dono it," was
raised by tho-e among the spectators
who had'timed him. A loud burst of
applause greeted this announcement,
only to Is) followed by a much more
ontliiiiastic demonstration as the board
swung round, witli the record '2 :10"
upon it.
Never on a raco track has thoro been
a sceno of wilder excitement than
followed the announcement. Hats, canes,
handkerchiefs ami fans were waved,
whilo men shouted themselves hoarse in
cheering the king of the American turf.
When Hithers came back to (he stand
with Jay Kye See a magnificent horse
shoe of flowers was presented him, while
around him gathered groups of admi
ring friends.
Immediately following this repoit
came the following.
Ci.i:vi:i.anp, Aug. 2. -This has been a
groat day at the driving nark-. On
account of rain interfering with the
programme of the week, tho sort began
at 11 this morning and continued until
f, when the race were iinidied. The
attendance n large and the weather
was pb ii'irit, wept a short shower at 1
o'clock , Ui truck was good.
At half past 1, lictwten three heats of
a pacing race of tho - :27 class, Maud S.
was brought on tho (rack, and after a
littlo warming up, William Illair, the
driver, nodded forthe start and gave the
mare her head. She strode oft in the
smoothest conceivable manner, unattend
ed by any horse to help her along, and
mado the entire circuit like a perfect
working machine, without a .kip. She
passed tho first quarter in !12! seconds;
tho half mile in 1 -01 f ; the thrco-quartcr
post in 1 ::(!(, and tho full mile, time
given, in 2 :0D;.
Three gentlemen limed her from the
judge'H stand. Davis Homier of New
York made the time 2 01) ; W. 1). Fosig,
secretary of tho Cleveland Driving Park,
2:01) :i-f, and J. Cuinnnngs, president of
tho Toledo Driving Park, tl:0!).. Several
watches in boxe opposite tlfo judge'd
stand marked '2.0'.).1.
President Edwards announced that
tho time was a record, in as much as a
wager of $100 was made on time, 1). H.
Loudentsach of Chicago putting $100
with Captain Goorgo M. Stone, manager
of Maud S., that she would trot better
ban li:ll.J.
Tho track is estimated to bo a second
and a half to two seconds slower to-day
than tho Providence track. Tho great
crowd of spectators went wild with en
thusiasm when tho timo was bulletined
showing that all previous records had
been beaten and that tho handsome
mare had mado the fastest mile ever
t rotten.
She exhibited no signs of distress after
her unpn railed performance, and was led
to her stable amid excited cheoring,
followed by a crowd of jubilant admirers.
hho had dono no work for ten days. Gun
tain Stone is confident she could easily
trot on tho same track Monday in 2:08
or better, and is mora than over confi
dent that she is the fastest trotter in the
