B. F. and W. W. Watts had a practical illustration of the uncertainty of life, especially in horse flesh, on Thursday morning, a telegram being received by them announcing the death of the four-yearold'colt, Thurlow T., which they owned. The colt was in the 2:40 race at Clio, Wednesday afternoon, and iri the third heat of the race dropped [dead on the home stretch, either from heart disease or from the bursting of a blood vessel. The colt was valued at $1,000 and was one of the p'romising horses of this vicinity. He had a mark of 2:39 J and this season had shown several half-miles under 1:15. Two weeks ago at Saline he won the four year old race easily, five half-miles of the race being trotted between 1:14 anc The loss to the owners is a total one, as they carried no in! surance.
