The Hutchinson Stock Farm.
Among the Minnesota trotting stallions
who are gaining reputation through tho
performances and promise of their get, is
Colonua, owned by Hon. S. G. Anderson,
proprietor of the Hatobinson stock farm,
located just on tho outskirts of the pleas- '
ant little village of Hutehiuson, in McLeod
county. The farm is admirably adapted
to stock purpose?, having a good grass
producing soil, plenty of good water, nat
ural drainage, and well sheltered by timber,
a most desirable attendant in this climate.
Hera is the home of Colonna. He is a
bay, lG}i hands high, foaled in 1870, by
Belmont, ho by Abdallah, out of Belle, by
Marubrino Chief; dam Lady McKinney.
Unfortunately Colonna waa taken when
first brought on from the East to a remote
and obscure section of the state, and it is
only in the last year or two that any but
ordinary mares have been sent to his em
brace. His get, though, when trained, it
is claimed, all show speed, thus illus
trating his powers of propotency in a
most striking manner. The only one of
his get, we believe, that has received a
track education and been in a race, is Cap
itola, a bay mare, foaled in 1878 out of the
thoroughbred sorrel mare Flora. Capitola
is about 15:2 hands, with v. good length of
body. She trots low and easy, with one of
those gliding, deceiving strides that con
veys the impression she is going a 2:40
gait when in fact she is coming nearer
to 2:30. In her two races last
summer she was out classed and
did not make a very good showing, but in
a private trial, with judges up, it is claimed
she showed a mile on the Minneapolis
track in 2:29. Two of Colonna's colts that
will be brought out this year are said to
be even more promising than Capitola, and
a further assertion is made that of all his
get, no one that has been trained, has
failed to show 3:00 or better in his three
year-old form. Colonna is described as
most symmetrically formed, possessing
high courage, fine style, and perfect

This department of the Globe has al
ready mentioned, in brief, the facts in ref
erence to the surgical operati on recently
performed upon the trotting gelding
Clingtone, 2:14, but the character of the
operation, and the causes making it neces
sary, are so little understood by breed
ers and owners generally, that
we to-day giva the state
ments of Mr. W. J. Gordon, owner of the
horse, and of Dr. W. C. Fair, who in
formed tho operation, mads to the Spirit
of the Times, in response to inquiries, as
312. W. J. GORDON'S EXPLANATION. .;
Cleveland, 0., Jan. 2.—1 have delayed re
plying to your favor, requesting particulars of
Clingstone's condition and recent il!:;( -, in
hopes to enclose at same time Dr. Fair's profes
sional statement of tho surgical operation that
he has so skillfully and successfully performed
upon him recently. The general facts, however,
are that, owii . to carelessness in castrating tho
horse, when about two years old, ono of the !
cords was clamped with and grown to the skin of
the scrotum, and instead of this cord being re
leased aud contracting back within the abdomen,
it has been pulling to and fro with every step
he took for the past live years, producing irrita
tion, soreness, iiud, finally, a pure fibrous tumor
at the end of tlia cord, which, upon removal,
w?ig;he 1 twenty-four ounces.
Notiuug was known of the existences of this
tumor until Nov. 1!) last. Somo discharge of
pus from the groin was noticed the day before
by Mr. Baunders, when he informed mo that a
similar discharge had .) scarred last June at East
Saginaw, Mich., but by. the prompt use of as
tringents he said that it soon ceased, and he
thought it was a trifling mattor, and said nothing
about it to me or anyone.
Mr. Pond (his former owner (has just written
to me that ho had had an experience with Cling
stone, similar to that of Mr. Saunders, without
considering it of any special importance, and
until now supposed it to have been the result of
pink-eye, but as soon as I was advised of it I had
Dr. Fair make a critical examination. He at
once discovered the tumor, and upon being in
formed that he had successfully oper
ated upjn sixty or seventy similar
cases in the course of his pract:"ce,
without a single failure, I at onca decided to
have him operate on Clingstone, as soon as the
horse could bo properly prepared, which he did,
in the most satisfactory manner, on Nov. 22,
cutting the cord well above the tumor, and
where the muscular tissue was in perfect health,
and thus insuring perfect and permanent relief.
His recovery has been rapid and satisfactory in
every way, and he now feels and acts better
than he ever has since I owned him. He re
covered soon after his return' here in September,
from the interfering injury received at Fleet
wood, and has not at any time suffered from m
sore throat, as has been reported.
It seems but reasonable to . conclude j that if
this horse hod not been so seriously handicap
ped he could have easily beaten his Cleveland
record of 2-. H. It now being known that he
had seriously debilitated by wearing a close
sheet-copper muzzle for seven weeks prior to his
race, and also at the same time carrying a large
and painful tumor.
DR. W. C. FAIR'S SCIENTIFIC STATEMENT.
Your letter, requesting a written statement of
Clingstone's illness, was duly received.' My
first knowledge of the matter was on the 18th of
INovembdr last. Mr. George W. Saunders then
informed me that a slight discharge of pus was
coming from his groin. Hie following day I
made a careful examination of him, and found
a large-fibrous tumor on the spermatic cord,
firmly adherent to" the scrotum, extending as
high up as the abdominal ring, with a small
fistulon< opening at the lower end, discharging a
small quantity of pas. : ,
I reported his condition to 3lr. Gordon, and
recommended an operation, which was consented
to, w;i;i instructions to proceed as soon as ad
I prepared the animal for the operation by
5 feeding him no bulky feed, andTestricted his
53ie: to cooling laxatives for three days.
Not. 22, we cast him, and secured him firmly.
I t^en proceeded to operate, with the assistance
of my business associate. Dr. B.C. Hutchings.
I dissected the tumor from the surrounding scro
tom. taking ocre go as high up above the tumor
as p >.«ible. I placed the flat clam on the healthy
spe ..: i.uc co:-'i, removing all the tumor and one
mcii u53 b !•■•■'-'" o| the itiiy cord. I cauterized
the -.'Dil o' fa 3 curd, ligatured the arteries, and
im n-iiliaieiy released him.
Clingstone exhibited great courage during,
the operation. • « «.
T 10 tumor was purely of a fibrous composition,
measuring about six inches in length, and the
Tb»p" of h flattened oval, largest at lower cud
weighing twenty-four ounces.
Doubtless, this tumor was the result of im
proper castration with the caustic clam. The
operator allowed :he end of the cord to be
caught up with the edges of the incised scrotum
in the caustic clam, p/oducing the adhesions
which caused tho tumor. Another possible
cause in by leaving the cord too long, or when
tho enmaster muscle has suffered from some de
bility, and tho extremity of tho cord has re
mained in contact with the wounded scrotum,
or has slightly protruded beyond the opening.
All of tho above mentioned causes may result in
fibrous tumor or schirrus con 5.
After ths operation I visited Clingstone twice
a day for twelve days, then once a day for fif
teen days, making a record of his symptoms at
each visit and dressing tho wound. His stall
was hoatc-d and kept at an even* temperature by
artificial means; he was given gentle walking
exercise every day, warm water to drink, and
well- cooked warm food. His recovery has been
Bpeedy wid v>;iy satisfactory.

Green was instructed to buy the fastest trotting
in the world, regardless of ex
pense. "What, nearly the price of a Fifth
F" I queried. "Yes,'? said my
informant, "'what signifies price to a mill
ionaire'e ambition." So Charles opp.aed nego
tiations with Orrin Hickok, who then had St.
i in the grand circuit, and finally agreed to
buy the horse at $45,000, on condition that he
would maintain his supremacy, and pa:'d $1,000
cash for the privilege of "calling" him at that
price within a certain time. The king had a rival
in the circuit, Maud 8., and, as is well known,
sin tied him iit Rochester, on Aug. 11, 1880,
both making 2:11%. "We therefore abandoned
our intention of taking the horse," said Charley,
"andlet the $1,000 go as forfeit." "So you
see, Hickok was driving for a big stake," con
cluded my friend.
Chester's Compute Trotting and Pacing
The Spirit of the Times says: "Cheater's
complete trotting and pacing record will
go to press next month, and in the mean
time any information in regard to events
that are past will he heartily welcomed,
and put in its proper place, to be preserv
ed forever. We wish ourreaders to bear
in mind that this work is to contain full
summaries of all races trotted or paced
from the time of Boston Blue (or of Yan
key, if his claims to precedence, recorded
elsewhere on this page, are found to be
substantial), to the close of 1882. Very
many contests, some of them of an im
portant nature, that have never before
been published, will appear in this book,
and any person who can furnish
the necessary data for additional
summaries of this character will confer a
great favor by doing so. Corrections of
errors that have been noticed in existing
publications will also be thankfully re
ceived, and it is particularly desired to ob
tain pedigrees of performers, whether of
early or late times. Every owner of a
trotting stallion is requested to send in the
names of all horses sired by him that have
appeared on the turf, in order that he may
receive due credit. The idea of this work
is to make the records, once for all, com
plete and accurate up to date, and if any
of the performers are not properly cred
ited, it will be, after this notice, the fault
of those who should be most interested in
securing such credit. No information, of
any sort, that is reliable, can oome amiss.
The book will be published in May, 1883,
withont fail, and will be a handsomely
bound octavo, of over 900 pages; price,
$10. Address Walter T. Chester, P. O.

Death of the Trotting Mare Fleming Girl.
This department of the Globe of last
week mentioned the serious illness of the
trotting mare Fleming Girl, one of the
most prized of the Midway matrons. At
the time that item waa penned strong
hopes were entertained the mare would re
cover. On the contrary, she continued to
grow worse, and death ensued Tuesday
morning following. She was purchased
in Kentucky for jj;t,OOO, with a view
to use upon the turf, at
nr.'t, for though she had niado a record of
but 2:33, she showed a trial upon which the
purcha?e hinged close to 2:20. A pter her
turf career she was to be retired to the
stud. She was prepared for the campaign
ing last spring, and entered through the
Northwestern circuit, but she showed up
very poorl/.acting from the first as if over
worked. She was then bred to Blackwood,
Jr., by whom she was in foal when she
died. Her breeding on her sires side was
Royal, being by Paddy, and tracing
straight back through the Patchen family
to Imp. Messenger. Her dam was Anna
Belt, by Arr.ericus. Her death is a serious
The American Draft Horse.
Too much careful study of the principles
of breeding cannot be given to the sub
ject by those desirous of perfecting a race
of hordes that shall in time be known as
the American draft horse.
Those who flatter themselves that the
draft horse of the future is the one show
ing the greatest amount of avoirdupois
are destined to disappointment. Just at
present any large horse, if not decidedly
ugly, will sell at a price affording a profit
sboy c cost of raising, but soon as the publio
becomes educated up to realizing the com
parative value of the different breeds and
the market becomes better supplied, there
will be a distinction made that will bring
thousands of breeders to realize how easily
they have been gulled by the now ste
reotyped cry "They are big and will sell."
A conformation will be demanded which
ensures the greatest strength and endur
ance, proportions requisite for easy,grace
ful action, and mill-power to propel the
massive proportions at a speed in keeping
with the work required. Then bone, mus
cle and sinew will be taken into account
and come to the front as the first consider
ations; and light-boned fat, flabby, indo
lent, weak constituted stallions that are
now being hawked about the country
whose only qualification is their dead
weight, will be sent to the rear.
The modern Clydesdale and his illus
trious progenitor the English cart or shire
horse, have a world wide reputation for en
ergy, power and endurance, equaled by no
other breed. These two breeds — practical
ly one —have come among us to stay, and
every year are demonstrating their supe
riority by practical tests in every state,
county, and town in our great Northwest.
There should be no strife between these
two strains of horses for they both possess
the same characteristics, and conformation,
unless it may be that the English horses
are somewhat smoother, and more com
pact than the Clyde; but there has been so
ranch of the former infused into the latter
of late years, that it requires an expert to
say where the English leaves off and the
Clyde commences.— The Plowman.

Pfeiffer, O. A. Hickok, John Splan and

John Murphy is the king."
The veteran turfman, Dan Mace, lately
remarked, while looking over Vanderbilt's
celebrated trotters, that "there is nothing
like a dash of Morgan blood to make
tough, enduring, stylish roadsters." And
the general public is fast realizing the
fact. Ten years hence a "dash of Morgan
blood" will be much more highly prized
than at the present time.

The St. Louis Globe-Democrat says that

The major has had much experience. Col.
Clarke says he will not start this season,
and may call on Ivlaj. Murphy to drop the
flag at Louisville. It is to bo hoped a
good starter will be secured for the West,
for no position has been so much abused
in the past few years."

than some people dream of. At Mr. Bon

daughter of Clark Chief, dropped in April,
1881, a bay colt to the cover of Startle, son
of Rysdyk's Hambletonian. In October
Mr. Bonner began to put in a trough ao
cessible to mare and colt twelve quarts of
oats a day. In the day time the two had
the run of a sixteen acre grass lot and
they were housed at night. The colt was
weaned Jan. 10, 1882. It was given six
quarts of oats and two quarts of bran
daily. When it was thirteen months
old it weighed 925 lbs.; fif
teen months old, 970 lbs.; seventeen
months old, 1,025 lbs.; and when eight
een months old the scales balanced at 1,000
lbs. On the same day Startle weighed
1,000 lbs.; Eldridge, 1,015 lbs., and Nnt

Some strange thing 3 have occurred in
connection with thoroughbred mares and
their foals. "The Druid" tells of a mare
named Eldon, having lost her own
foal, drove Madcap, her paddock compan
ion, away from her bantling," adopting it
as her own. Another mare named Milk
sop took fright at her foal, and flatly re
fused to suckle it. - Sir Charles Bunbury
had a grey colt by Diomed (winner of the
first Derby) with five legs— growing
out of his —and sold it to a showman.
Vesta had fourteen foals, all greys, and
Speed made a point of killing all her foals,
while Tuft never reared one. A
horse, well . named Resurrection, was
supposed to have been born dead, and was
thrown on to a dung heap, the warmth of
which revived him. On the Petworth
estate, in 1825, nearly every broodmare and
she ass cast well-grown dead foals, for no
cause that could be made out. A mare by
Orville went thirty-seven days beyond her
time, and gave birth to a foal with no feet
and her half-sister shortly after had one
without eyes. The dam of Montreal,owned
by Lord George Bentinok, bred only three
seasons, and had twins each time. There
were a pair of twins named Tweedle-dum
and Tweedle-d«e, one of which throve bet

Death of the Largest Man in the District,
[Speoial Telegram to the Globe.]
Washington, Jan. 13.Mr. W. Ignatius
Dier, the builder and contractor, who died
in Georgetown, was a large man. He was
powerfully built and weighed 375 pounds.
Indeed avoirdupois began to interfere with
his business affairs some time ago and he
retired from active life. Mr. Dier, when
he died last Sunday, was the largest man
in the District. Ever since he was com
pelled to remain in the house he has in
creased in weight. His last illness, while
partially resulting from a fall, was chiefly
owing to the constant accumulation of fat,
the cause of his death being the
growth of that substance about his
internal organs. ' To such an extent
had the mass of fat increased, that
when be died he weighed no 1e33 than 375
pounds. As can readily be imagined, no
ordinary casket would serve in a case like
this. One had to be made to special order

Sermon by Rev. Dr. Smith at Clinton Ave
nue M. K. Church Yesterday—Union Ser
. -vice at Plymouth Church--Interesting
Talk for the Young:.
Clinton Avenue M. E. Church.
The services at this, church were begun
at 9:30 a. m. with a love feast; at 10:30
preaching by the presiding elder, Rev, Dr.
S. G. Smith, and the administration of the
The sermon of Dr. Smith was ono of his
usual clear, forcible e*Tort3 full of plain
pointed argument. The subject was Mat
thew 11th chapter, 4th, sth and Gth verse?.
The proposition that in the end to do
right would be found advantageous was
enunciated. How may men always do
right then became a question of great
importance. There arise supreme mo
ments in'each man's life when the angels,
of God appear to be camped upon
ono side of him and all the hosts of hell
upon the other. How is man to choose
between the right and wrong in such a mo
ment? The Christian religion comes in
this emergency and aids man in this great
crisis. Mankind are swayed in all their
acts by some three or four primary mo
tives or impulses, of which hope, fear and
love are the principal. Unless Christiani
ty, founded upon the Bible, does help
a man to do right it is worthless. The
Bibla may be perfect in a literary point of
view, yet if it is no aid to man in his effort
to do right it is valueless. Unless Christi
anity helps a man practically, it is of no
account. If it does not help him nothing
can. Hope, the first and chielest of
all the motives which sway human
ity and which becomes at once
not only a mental but a physical help be
longs entirely to Christianity. In Chris
tianity I am led to hope for a better con
dition both in this world and the next, to
fear to disobey a God whose infinite love
to me inspires my warmest love in return.
It is not because I fear them because he is
bo strong and powerful and could crush
me in a moment, but I revere him because
of his goodness and love to me. That
Christianity helps a man practically can
at once be seen. It helps him to successes
in life for with it comes morality and with
morality comes good habits and the man
of good habits is more likely to have good
health and good health fits a man for greater
exertion both mental and physical and in
creases his power of production whereby
he accumulates wealth. Thus in a worldly
point of view Christianity helps a man al
ways. If a man who does not regulate his
business upon the principles of Christian
ity is prosperous he must violate the laws
of society as well as of God and is a thief,
for which class the penitentiaries are built,
even such an one becomes more prosper
ous when he finally submits to the in
fluences of the Christian religion and reg
ulates his business according to its teach
ings. In all the history of the world those
nations have achieved the greatest results
and existed the longest who have been
moulded upon the Christian religion, and
those who have spurned or forsaken
it have miserably perished. What three
nations rule the larger portion of the
world to-day, and whose flags are floating
respected and triumphant on every water
of the globe—England, Germany and
America —Christian nations who recognize
God and Christianity. It becomes the most
powerful force mankind has ever known,
and in the magnificence of its achievements
exhausts hope, love and fear, the master
passions of humanity. Not long since a
man appeared before a St. Paul audience
and paraded the wonderful love he felt for
his wife and children, walking up and
down the stage and uttering those vows
and sentiments which we love best to
breathe in the ear of our own loved ones
in the quiet and sanctity of our homes.
This man said "Christianity knows
nothing of love." What love oan
be greater than that which Christianity
does teach. The most perfect symbols of
human love are cited again and again as
but faint and inadequate measures of the
love the Father feels for mankind, and in
the birth, life and death of the Savior
Christ no degree of human love can ap
proach it. The whole of Christianity is
summed up by him in the injunction to
"love God with all the heart, soul and
mind, and our neighbor as ourself." The
whole teaching of the Christian religion i 3
of a love 30 supreme and overpowering that
without it mankind never could have known
tho length and breadth and depth of that
most sublime of all human passions. If
the human soul can not b9 touched by such
love as the Bible teaches it must fail to b9
reached by anything.
Finally all of civilization and enlighten
ment which the world possesses it has re
ceived through Christianity, and to that
which has done for man more than any
thing else on earth must he turn for help
t& do right.
The Union service announced by the
Sunday Globe for 3 p. m. yesterday was
designed a3 a general union gathering
to be a sequel to the week of prayer. It
was participated in by a number of the
pastors and congregations of the city.
There were present Rev. Dr. M. G. Dana,
pastor of the Plymouth church, Rev. M.
Conant, of the Pacific Congregational
church, Rev. M. N. Gilbert, rector of Christ
Episcopal church, Rev. Dr. W. K. Marshall,
of Jackson street M. E. church, and Rev.
R. R. Riddell of the First Baptist cherch.
Rev. Dr. Dana presided and opened the
service with a brief announcement and
reading a portion of the scriptures fol
lowed by prayer by Rev. M. Conant and
singing by the congregation.
Rev. M. N. Gilbert gave the first ad
dresß upon the subject of "Words to Young
Men." He would not take a text or preach
a sermon, but would address himself di
rectly to the young men; the vigorous,hearty
young men who have the power, and who
are moulding society arid shaping the des
tinies of state. Their responsibilities were
great, and their opportunities for good
were large. He would hold up to them as
a most perfect model, Christ, who was a
young man, his . whole career here upon
earth being passed | before he was thirty
years of age. To strive to imitate Christ
should be , the ambition of every * yonng
man, who alone is worthy of imitation.., . ;
1 Rev. Mr. Riddell / : followed on the sub
ject of "Christian Believers 3 and Their
Duties." It was their duty to rbe strong,
and in proportion to their belief so would
their strength, and to believe- they must
have faith. There was work for Christians
here in St."Paul." He "was' not* calling at
tention to Minneapolis or Chicago, but to
our own city of St. Paul. To accomplish
this they must first have .faith in
themselves. He had no sym
pathy with that species ;of doubt
ing, trembling Christianity which
had no faith in itself and made no effort
for the good or conversion of others.
Christians should have faith in themselves
and their Christianity, and second, they
should have faith in the instrumentalities
placed in their hands for the accompliph
ment of good and the conversion of their
fellow men. Success depends upon faith
i in the means emr>loyed. He believed in
; the religion of Jesus Christ, and had faith
j in the old fashioned religion of the cross
I which the Bible teaches. He did not be
j lieve in new and novel or patent method 3
I of converting mankind.
: Religion did not consist of a little ex
cursion once in a while from the wilder
ness where too many of us, even some
church members, resided most of the time,
to the heights of consecration, and having j
a little sort of gospel picnic there, but it
meant a continuous residence of the
Christian upon Calvary. The reply of the
soldier whose command was called to go
upon a perilous enterprise, and whose com
mander, in view of the nelpless condition
of his wife and family, gave him leave to
remain behind, '"Sir, I did not
enlist to fall out," was given as
the watchword of Christians. They have
enlisted for life and should never fall out.
Lastly, it was their duty to labor for the
conversion of others, for by so doing they
always received a benefit themselves. The
anecdote of the father who, one day re
turning home to his wife and children,
tnrned aside and, in the face of a para
lyzed crowd, plunged into the seething,
boiling waters of a swollen stream to save
a child's life, and who found when the
heroic feat was accomplished that the little
boy was his own, was recoauted with a
thrilling patho3 which moved the entire
audience, and which the speaker naid was
illustrative of how Christians often re
ceived benefits while laboring for others.
Dr. Marshall then followed oa the sub
ject of "The Needs of the Hour." He was
reminded by his topic of the command of
Christ to tho friends of Lazarus to "take
away the stones from the mouth of the
aepalcher." This was just exactly, it
Eeeined to him, the needs of the hour that
Christian should remove so far as they
were able, all obstacles to God's working
for tho conversion of souls. He woaid
not pretend to say that God
could not convert sinners
without the assistance of
Christians, but he would say that he would
no more do so than Christ would have
raised Lazarus from the dead had his
friends refused to do as he had commanded.
One of the chief obstacles Christians should
remove was unbelief, and they should make
a general movement along the whole line.
They should move themselves upon the
intrenchments of sin in this city and God
would be with them.
Rev. Mr. Conant followed briefly on the
topic of "The Conditions of Success."
These he said chiefly that Christians must
be themselves filled with the Holy Ghost.
They should be ready and eager to work. A
friend once said when he found his zeal
flagging he would make it a point to labor
with the most wicked man he knew, and
that he always received a revival of his
own Christian energy by so doing. The
conditions of success were earnest, heroic
Christian labor. The service closed with
prayer by Dr. Dana, and the benediction
pronounced by Mr. Gilbert.
