THE HORSE MARKET.
A revival in prices is sure to come be
fore long. Mr. T. Berry, the well-know-i
horseman, who lias had forty yean,' ex
perience as a breeder, trainer, driver and
seller of horses, and publisher of. horse
journals, which has enabled him to cover
almost the entire field experimentally,
declares that lie has seen the horse bu&i
ness come and go at least three times
during the period he has been engaged
• in it. From 1857 until the war broke out
there, was absolutely no market- for
horses, and when' by chance any ere
sold for cash, it was even at lower prices
than those prevailing in 1895. A few
' went in the way of trade, but they were
not sold for cash at all. Again in 1878
heavy draft horses were bought by Mr.
;l>efry-'foi! from $40 to $8.), but there was
•no market and veiv little demand any
where. A recovery was hud about 1877
--' 8-9, and then the prices continued good
'• until 1893, since which time another era
of low prices set in. The discouraging
. "conditions that Lave prevailed since 1898
'.^impress us nio&t because they are (lie
nearest at hand; but iluy are by no
means the mostdepressing under which
the business lias suffered. As prices
huve recovered before, so they williipun:
And horses are even now bringing reas
onably remunerative figures as compared
with the returns received from other de-
RANCHE AND RANGE.
partmenll in fanning and livestock
In all the I rips we have lately made in
various directions throughout the coun
try, we have constantly kept one eye
open for colts in pastures. They have
been wonderfully few and far between.
The scarcity of colts was never greater
in (be history of the country. Breeding
for the -past three seasons at least has
come to i\ dead standstill, and about the
worst property a man could own was a
stallion, and it made no difference, eith
er, how good he was. Within the next
three years the condition of the demand
will certainly change. There is already
a much healthier inquiry for good horses
than has been known since 18015, and this
inquiry has been growing. Within the
next three years demand will press upon
supply very severely, and the wondoi
then will be where the horses are com
ing from with which to rill it. A consid
erable number of farmers already see
this, and we confidently expect a food
deal more breeding during the coming
season than has been done in the past
three years combined. It is our deliber
ate judgment that every farmer having a
good mare should breed her this spring
to the best s-ue lie can find, keeping in
view the purpose which the progeny is
desired to fill.
The movement set on foot to hold a
spring meeting at Spokane has fallen
through after something like $2,000 was
pledged by horsemen for purses. This is
unfortunate. A properly conducted race
meet at that point would he sure to be a
great success. However, it is understood
that one will surely be held in the fall.
