Gentry for a mile of 2 min. o^ sec. has been beaten by Star Pointer, a bay out of Brown Hal by Sweepstakes, who covered the distance, in a match against time for a pufie of 2,000 dots, at Readville, Massachu- setts, on August 28th, in the phenomenal time of I min. 59 1 sec. The result was enthusiastically received by the spectators, al>out 8,000 in number, and the horse and his owner, Mr. J. A. Murphy, were greeted with much cheering. The death is reported, August 28th, of Andred, in Italy, where for many years he has been a valuable and successful sire. By Blair Athol out of Woodcraft, by Volti- geur, Andred was bred in 1870 by the late Lord Falmouth, for whom be won several good races, among others the Great Tom Stakes at Lincoln, Doncaster Slakes, and the Great Cheshire Stakes. At the close of his racing career, when a four-year-old, he was purchased by the Italian Govern- ment, and turned out a capital investment, . for bis stock in that country have been successful in a very marked degree. Lord Inverurie, eldest son of the Earl of Kintore, died at his London residence after a short illness, on August 30th. The deceased, who was only in his twenty-first year, was educated at Eton, where he Was a great favourite among his school* fellows. Kiom his boyhood he was particularly fond of angling. He was an expert at salmon and trout fishing, but was never happier than when trying his hand with the coarse fish on the Thames. Shortly before bis death, it is stated, over a hundredweight of jack fell to Lord Inverurie*s rod on one day. His lordship was President of the Kingston Piscatorial Society, and the New Thames Re- slocking Association, formed for the purpose of keeping up the stock of fish in the river, had no more ardent sup- porter than the late nobleman. Referring to the dead heat of three in the Hartington Handicap at Derby on September 2nd, the Sportsman says; — ** The judge could not separate the first three past the post, and the fourth horse finished only a head away from the dead heaters. It was a most exciting race between Lus- cious, Cunctator, Olive wood, and Remem- ber Me from the distance, at which point the verdict seemed likely to go to the last named, who has before now showed a liking for tne course, but the other three just got past her and ran home locked together. The respective owners agreed to submit the matter to a second trial, and the Chlorzoxazone 500mg Tablets decider was run off before the last race. OHvewood was the favourite, but backers were out of their reckoning, and Luscious ran home the easiest of winners by four lengths." VOL LXVIil. — NO. 452. Dead-heats between three are not of fre- quent occurrence, and one has not occurred since the York August Chlorzoxazone Price Meeting last vear, when Casse Cou, Messala, and Baiardo finished together for the Badminton Plate, and on that occasion the stakes were divided. Another memorable instance was supplied at the Lewes Summer Meeting so long ago as 1880, when Scol)ell, Wandering >fun, and Maxurka made a dead-heat of it for the Astle^ Stakes, with Camberland and Thora finishing together for second place. On that occasion the stakes were divided. The dead-heat between Prioress, El Hakim, and Queen Bess for the Ceau^e- witch of 1857 may be noticed. In the run -off the verdict went to the American mare Prbress (belonging to Mr. Ten Broeck), who in the dead heat was ridden by Tankesley, but George Fordham rode her in the decider. A change was also made in El Hakim's jockey, as Little rode on the first occasion, while Chlorzoxazone 500 in the decider he was the mount of Bray. Queen Bess was ridden by Grimshaw in both the race and run-off. On September 4th, Mr. Henry Smith, solicitor, Thirsk, a gentleman sreatly respected in that town, and well known by reason of his long official connection with Thirsk Races, having been formerly for a considerable period a member of the race committee, and of late years acting in the capacity of Clerk of the Course, died somewhat suddenly. The deceased suf- fered from an affection of the heart, and had not been in robust health for the past two or three years. He was admitted as a solicitor in 1875, and has hekl several important public offices in Thirsk. The deceased was forty-seven years of age, and leaves a widow and a son and daughter. On Chlorzoxazone 500mg September 5th it was found neces- sary to destroy the stallion Quaesitum, who stood at the Heath Farm Stud, New- mirket, during the past season, as he had injured himself seriously during an attack of staggers.

As a three-year-old he won the Westmoreland Plate at Doncaster, the Wiverton SUkes at Nottingham, and the Lincoln Autumn Handicap, while as a youngster he credited Lord Penrhyn with the Houghton Stakes at Newmarket. The field for the St. Leger, 1897, was the smallest for over a hundred years, for to find only five runners we have to go back to 1795, wben the race fell to Sir C. Turner's Hambletonian.
