I VANITY FAIR. 4 • MEN OF THE DAY. I I —From "Vanity Lair. I MAJOR EUSTACE LODEU. I Major Eust?c? Lcder is a n-cd?t, irc?h-?m- p'exioned bachelor, the scn d the late Sir Robert Lcder, who, in his day, was a famous racing man. From Ekm Eustace Lcdcr went ic, r ath to Cambridge, where he achieved neither ath- letic nor scholastic distinction. He left the University for the 12th Lance is, with which IC- giment he served for fifteen years. His first visit to Ireland-an island which he then re- garded ca rather a bow-was with his regiment. But he changed his cp:nicn after a year or two, bought Eyrefioid Ledge, in C:unty Kildare, set up a breeding establishment, and finally sent in his papers and settled down. The British public were generally unawa o of the existence of the gallant major until 1S03. The sport-Tig world knew him as the owner of Billow, Star Sheet, Game Chick, and Hammer- kop; but the fortunate possessor of Pictty Polly speedily asquired the e-ame nation:; 1 re- cogMiton as is the prerog-ativo of Prime Minis- tors, distinguished generals, a.nd first-class ericketcjs who have made over two thousand rutiis. Fiom the day when Prettv Polly wen the British Dominion Stakes at Sandown-by I can- not f,Y how many lengths—Major Eustace Lccer s name nnd fame were made. And now that to Pretty Polly, Spearmint has been added, his niche in the British Hall of He iocs :o as- sured. He has a keen eye fcr a ho;fe, and a sound judgment in his stud arrangements. He is a smalt smoker, and a fair shot. He does not dance, but loves to fthew ycu his garden. He has lecently been ekv ted a member of the Jcckey Club. The choice was generally ap- proved by the Race Ho se Owners' As o: iation. JEHU JUNIOR. WHERE TO LIVE. A new demand is springing up amongst th ose who Fcolc fcr houses in tho residential West End. In years gone by the first consideration was the no it fashionable street that, the pocket of the hoi-se-hi'.nter could affc-rd; now there is an overwhelming dca Ílc to funl u- L, e "'1' which is beyond the ran?& of the cab -hi-fl-s fiom the near(6 hotel, restaurant, club, or em- porium. down which no proces-ions of a dis- tressful or militant description have any reason to pass, and which is beyond the dieams of the maddest or most enterprising motor ornni- bui. The question at the present moment is not which is the "bo-st" "trcet in London, but whether there is one in which a rr.oderjtely deaf, iron-nerved person can live in peace and quietness. THE CHURCH AT THE RACES. I There is an amusing point about Doncaster. At no other race meeting will you find the clerical element in evidence; yet it is con- sidered quite fitting ths-i every parson within reasonable distance of the couieo should not only enreitain for the meeting, but himself be pre so nt if he be so disposed, and en the first visit of his Majesty after his accession it may be recalled that tho Bishop of the diocese OITIC:a,ly received the King; at Daicr.flrer Station —surely a unique incident. i ONE FOR THE MASTER. There is a certain ccUego at Camfcrd where t>c M?cr is in ?ho habit of asking freshmen to bre"kfFst in batch? of four. Before RHmg- the inner man, however, a certain amount of ceremony han to be gone through. This con- s?sts in gue?ing what di.?hea are conceded be- neath the covers, and nnul the freshmen guess 00rredly they get no breakfast. One morning the time arrived for Mr. X. to go through the ordeal in common with three others. He evi- dently came prepared, for in rep:y to the usual formula, "And what do you fiuppese, Mr. X., is under this cover?" canic the staggering re- ply, "Plea.se, sir, tench stewed in Malmsey wine, bskd to a turn, a.nd then surrounded with a garniture of lampreys from the river Rumber." It was only for a moment, that the Ma-ter was taken aback, for lie rejoined, with con?idcr?bie ?nhomi, "I am afraid Mr. X., th?srstabt?hmfjnt won't run to that." But rumour has it that that fr<simian was never asked aga in.
