MULGRAVE JOCKEY CLUB. [To THE EDITOR.] Sir,-As one of the visitois from our portion of the district will you allow rae a little space to express my keen sense of appreciation of the efforts of the Mul- grave Jockey Club as evidenced in their meeting on !Jth init. When we started from Geraldton, we thought that we might possibly see a day's fair sport under the difficulties usual to small Northern Queensland meetings. In this, however, we wqre most pleasantly surprised ; we found that the Mulgrave Club possessed a course which in a little while will rank among the best north of Rockhampton, while the arrangements in every way far exceeded our expectations. Knowing that the Mulgrave Jockey Club was a comparatively new institution, we hardly expected to see everything " up to Dick " but with the exception of une or two minor details which can easily be altered, ] I think that your distiict has every reason to feel moro than proud of its Racing Club. It argues well for the prosperity | ...
