On the first of January there were
ip this country, according to the offi
cial estimate nearly 23,0U0,000 horBes,
a greater number than ever before,
except in the years 1909 and 1910.
While these figures show that the
coming into use of motor vehicles has
thus far had very little effect upon the
quantity of American'Jiurses, there are
the best of reasons to believe that,
from some cause or a variety of causes
the quality of our horses has suffered.
Horses are more numerous than they
were a year ago, the increase amount
ing to approximately 58,000. but good
horses are growing scarcer. This is
shown in the difficulty that army offi
cers experience in securing mounts for
the cavalry arm of the service. Ger
many, which has only 3,200,000 'horses
all told, has much less difficulty in
getting mountsjfor herjarge force of
cavalry than we have in securing
enough horses for n very muchsmaller
This may be due in Dart to the fact
that our Government will not pay more
than $150 for a three year old horse,
and American farmers find no profit
iD raising horses suitable for cavalry
purposes at this price. But there
must also be other causes operating to
bring about a decrease in the quality
of our horses. Even when the limit
of price'is placed by individuals at a
very much higher figure the t good
horse is hard to find.
There was a time when we boasted
with good reasun of the excellence of
our horses. They led the world in
many respects. With greater know
ledge of scientific breeding and a
more widespread disposition to employ
that knowledge, American hosses
should have improved in qualitv. That
they have not should be a matter of
regret, for the time has not come, and
we hope never will come, when man's
oldest and best friend among the
dumb animals, excepting onlv the dog,
has no place in a world of men.

Importation of Song Birds
Some 600 English song birds are to
be imported into this country. Since
the consignment will include nightin
gales, skylarks and other hirds whose
praises have long been chanted by
British bards, there is no doubt that
the feathered immigrants wiil be cor
dially welcomecfby that portion of the
public which admires British poetry.
But unless the treatment thev are

given our own native birds, the aliens
are in for a stirring time when they
are finally turned loose and told to
shift for themselves, it is net at all
likely that'they have the resourceful
ness and the capacity to cling tenaci
ously to life which that other importa

such a Sharked degree. 'Few birds
have, for that matter. But unless they
develop an unexpected resoluteness of
