those letters would not like to see their names

If farmers v. sir failures,
reading farmer would see and note
them, ahd so avoid them in his practice,
which is true in many cases, no doubt. I
will cite a few such cases:
I had a fine colt in the fall, when it came
into winter quarters it was hooked by some
horned animal, a cow, as was supposed; it
was called an accident; the colt died. A
ibor lost one last fall in the same way,
an accident, of course,
simp; d 'ss, and for years past has
■ care that colts and horned cattle do
not r:. tme yard together, so no
such loss has occurred in thai way. Many
colts at this season of the year are exposed to
as day andl. a shed
to the weather or the sides of a barn or
a stack of hay or straw. Many such colt 3
are lost during the winter or spring, and if
not are very poor,and in many cases CO

and scant . rd housing,
and also good feeding and housing, audtinds
pays much better to feed liberally and
house carefully from all cold, wet storms in
the fall and early spriug, also snowstorms
and cold weather in whiter. They should
have plenty of room to exercise in, and
plenty of time to do it in during all lair

I will mention an instance of a colt my
son wintered one year ago for a neighbor;
the colt was offered for sale in the fall for
without a purchaser. My son having a
suckling colt to winter of the same age, was
persuaded by the neighbor to winter his, he
supplying oats to feed his colt night and
morning,-two quarts at .each feed, with hay
and a box stall as mentioned. Some of our
other neighbors said he would spoil ihe colt
under such feed and. treatment. Both colts
had a stall side by side; both were turned in
a yard on all pleasant days. The summer
past, 1 ... his colt pastured on
an adjoining farm with four other colts that
had been well wintered, all of the same age;
his outgrew them rapidly, and this fall
when he brought his colt from the pasture,
the writer weighed him; weight 050 poi
he had gained one pound daily both winter
and summer, and the past summer hen-, was
oue of extreme drought; consequently the
feed was very poor the last part of the s a
son. Had the usual amount of rain fallen
and the pastures been good, the colt would
have weighed more than 1,000 pounds at the
close of the pasturage season. The price of
the colt now is $200, even at half that, it
has paid extra well to give him the good care
he has received.
Accident to Ificltolt.
The San Francisco Chronicle says: A se
rious accideut occurred at the Bay District
Agricultural grounds on Sunday afternoon,
April 6. Orin A. Hickok, the well known
driver and trainer, was exercising the trot
ting filly Ruby when it occurred. A running
horse called Joe, and the pacer Lucy accom
panied Ruby, the three animals being at
tached to sulkies. When between the quar
ter-mile and half-mile pole the running
horse Joe collided with the sulky in which
Hickok was seated. In an instant Hickok
was lying insensible upon the track, having
struck upon his head when thrown from his
seat by the collision. The runninc horse did
not injure him further, but the pacer, which
was just in the rear when the accident oc
curred, went right over him, aud it is
thought tnat either Lucy's hoofs orthc wheels
of the sulky inflicted the more serious inju
ries. The driver of the running horse
stopped as soon as possible and turned his
animal to the outside of the track. He then
went to Mr. Hickok's assistance and re
moved him from the track, just as Ruby
came rushing around. Four times she
dashed around the mile track, and was final
ly caught after being tired out. Mr. Hickok
was brought to his rooms in town and Dr.
Lane summoned to attend him. He recov
ered consciousness early in the evening, and
if there are no internal injuries it is believed
he will soon recover.
Scelu's American Star.
Seely's American Star was a horse of qual
ity and bloodlike appearance. He was a
chestnut in color, with a blaze in the face
and hind ankles white above the pasterns.
He was foaled in 1537, and was bred by Mr.
Henry H. Berry, Pompton Plains, N. J., but
passed into the possession of Edmuud Seely
about the year 1848, and thereafter stood at
Goshen, Orange county, N. V., until his
death in February, ISOI, having made his
last season in 1860, when he served twenty
one mares. He was sired by Stockholm's
American Star, a chestnut with one white
foot, who was a good runner and a winner of
three-mile heats. In IS3G he served three
mares, the produce of one being Seely's
American Star, and he was then gelded. He
was by Duroc, a son of Diomed. His dam's
breeding has never been satisfactorily deter
mined, but there is no doubt that she was
thoroughbred. The dam of Seely's Star was
Sally Slouch, as she was by the celebrated
four-miler Henry, son of Sir Archy, her dam
by imported Messenger. This warm blood,
mingled with that of the "old hero of Ches

drove Jay Eye See a mile in 2:lo>'£, for
ih he was much censured by many, even
by his owner. They all said no five year old
should be driven so fast, and even if he
could go, it should be kept dark. But when
in 8 he gave him the record of
2:107 i, iv Providence, R. 1., thus proving
him the fastest five year old in the'world,
and placing himself high up on the lad :
fame, there were no word 3 of censure for
him then; but congratulations poured in on
every side. Mr. Bither Las been with J. I. j

of whom are said to be in first class condi

that you could not find sounder or better feet
in the country. They are at present at
Louisville, where they are preparing for the
coming season's campaign. Jay-Eye-See
nas won every race he has ever trotted but
one, and that was In Chicago, as a four year
oid; Eddie Bither was driving him, and lost
the first heat, so they thought he was young
and inexperienced and put him down, and
put Bud Doble in his place; the result was
his first and last failure.
General Knox, the celebrated stallion, on
the Fashion Stud Farm of Mr. Kenry X.
Smith, is now twenty-nine years old. He
has lost an eye and his back is down, but his
quarters still look muscular and his coat pre
sents a healthy appearance. He runs in a
paddock during the day and finds shelter in
a roomy box at night. Ten of his sons and
daughters are in the 2:30 list, including
Lady Maud, 2:18^; Cantors, 2:lS?.<; Inde
pendence, 2:2lJ£, and Victor, 2:23. He
will be allowed to serve fifteen mares during
the season. A noted horse on the same farm
is Stranger. He is a brown, four years old,
by General Washington, out of Goldsmith
Maid. He is lengthy and rugged in ap
pearance, stands close to 15.2, and is an
inch higher behind than forward. His
famous dam transmitted to him the white
hairs, which form a sort of star cluster
on his back, but he has the thick
jowl and massive neck of the Knox family.
Goldsmith Maid was the winner of somel
tike $350,000 during the twelve successive
years she was on the turf, She is now
twenty-seven years old and is well preserved.
She has not been faithful since 1881. Her
produce of that year was a bay lilly by Gen
eral Washington called Rosebud. This filly
is 15-3 and is a perfect likeness of her dam.
She has been broken to harness, and would
undoubtedly trot fast, but her owner, Mr.
Smith, is preserving her for breeding pur
poses. There seems no reason why Gold
h Maid should continue barren. If she.
does not catch to General Washington early
this spring she will be tried to another stal
lion. Lucy, another of the Fashion Stud
Farm mares, who retired with a record of
2:lsi£, and who is the best representative of
the Clay blood, has been uncertain for three
years- She missed twice, and this year slip
ped a seven months' foal to Jay Gould.
Lucy is now twenty-eight years old.
