QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY SPORTS. Tho programmo of tho Parramatta Trotting and Raco Club (which has como into existence with the good intention of catering for tho people of tho district and so obviating tho necessity of their looking elsewhere for amuse ment) appears in our advertising columns, and clearly indicates that tho club means business.
