To the uninitiated, a horse race for a stake purse, and the regular ordinary purse has little difference in meaning. But there is quite a considerable difference of dollars and cents to the Agricultural society For instance, the stake race for a llrst 'purseof one thousand dollars requires every horse entered to pay five per cent of the purse whether the horse is started in the race or not Kvery horse thai wins anv one of the four dn Kjons of the money pays ten percent of the purse or $100 Tin. horse winning the race gets 50 pi r cent anil Uie horse coming] in second best Jf> pi r cent, third ).\> per cent and the fourth. 10 per cent of the $1,000 purse or exnc ly what he is required to put in it For example.
