An Old Amerlean Jockey.
Mark Ransom Walker lives at No. 81
Plane street, Newark, N. J. He is the
oldest living native American horse
jockey and trainer. He is 82 years old.
He was born in Dover, near Boatop, and
rode running horses in races over 70
years ago. His father, who was a fa
mous horse trainer, taught him to ride
as soon as he could sit in a saddle. He
has blue eyes, regular features, gray
hair, mixed with a little brown, and a
small but compact figure. His hands
are palsied. "Runnin'horses ain't what
they was when I was a youngster," said
Mr. Walker to a reporter, "for they
ain't got the bottom now to run three
an' four mile heats a couple of times in
one afternoon. Seventy years ago horse
men wouldn't give much for a horse
that couldn't stand two or three four
mile heats in a day. I'll never forgot
the great four-mile race, best two in
three, heats of four miles each, between
the North an' South, which come off at
Craig's Point, near Boston, in 1814. It
was a blisterin' hot day, an' clouds of
dust nearly hid the wagons and people
that crowded.the road between Boston
an' Cambridge. Thousands of peopl
crowded round the race courso. The
South had matched Watch Eye, a fluo
hay horso, agin Sam Purdy's fast Little
John, a rattlin' runner. Rich planters
plnte.Weked their horse with their
last dollar ait then put up their slaves
agin the Northern men. A little darkoy
boy in a pik suit rode Little John an'
a white boy was mounted on Watch Eyo.
Folks choored likei mad when the horses
was brought out. Little John won the
first heat by a longth, an' ho took the
second heat easy. The Northerners won
heaps of money. The next day Poaco
maker, Revenge, and two other good
ones started in tho three-mile race.
Arthur Hydo, of Boston, owned Peaco
maker, an' the New England folks put
their money on him. The New Yorkors
an' Southernors backed Revengo, a New
York horse, Sam 1urdy wanted Mr.
Hyde to lot the darkey who won with
Little John ride Peacemaker, but Mr.
Hyde said he had a Yankee boy who

an' 2(6 other runnlers to Hailifax, where
lie wa'is to sip them11 to) the Weost Iudies
to run agin English horses. I was lired
to~ ride Little Jhn. Thle English
woulhdn't let Americeans taiko racing
hlorses to the West Indies, so Mr. W~r
ren sold all tile hlorses teet Little
JIohnl and two others, which noe shlipped
to Kingstoni inl the namle of an English

to Kinigstoni one dany too,t late for thet
ratces, but Mr. Warren sold Little ,Johin
to Major McCrea, of the English Army,
andt lhe beat. every horse ownied by thet
other officers. I redo Cubamn hor11s in
Havana for a whlile, 1an' then went to
Charleston, 8. C., where I rodo for
plantors ait the races in New O)rleanls,
Savannahi, Maconl, Rtaleighi, ani' lots tof
other towvns. The planters sent for 111
from every p)art of thle Southl, all' I made
a heaplj of money. At ai grealt rae meet
in' in Concord, S. C., 1 rotde the winninl'
colts, overweights, in every race for four
days. I rode an aged horse, full'weighlt,
for a planter named iDingwell, who hadi
bet nearly all he was worth onl the? horse.
Ho hatd never won ai heat tor ra('t. Every
body was sulrprisedl whien I landetld the
oltd horse a safe winner. Another mlatch
was mate for $300, and there was great
exciteent. The colored j)ckeys wvas
aw~fuil jealous, anl' 0110 of themI, just as
the hoersets was scored, shouted :' That

hitndred darkies hunllted for him in the
swamps, bult lie got away. I never
knowed what tile powVder was, bult the
trick was of tell played ill the South.
One jockey was killed by it. It was hot
times on ralce tracks in them days. I
saw men shot dead for not paying thoir

Them hot-blooded planters would shoot
as quick as a wink. In Charleston I
once saw 21 negroes hung together on a
gallows, an' 87 in one week. They had
planned to kill the white men an' black

"Nearly sixty years ago I came to
Now York," continued Mr. Walker, "an'
folks was goin' wild over American
Eclipse, a horso that was never beat in
a four-mile race. He wan a sorrel, with
a star, an' near hind foot white, 15
hands an' three inches high, an' had
spood, bottom and strength. He was
foaled at Dosaris, Long Island, on May
25, 1814, and Ginoral Nat Colon, his
owner, sold him to Cornelius Van Rant
when he was flive years old. Eclipse
beat Soa Gull, Flag of Truce, Heart of
Oak, Lady Lightfoot, Sir Walter, Black
eyed Susan, Fear Naught, Slow an'
Easy, Duchess of Marlborough an' Sir
Charles an' Henry, the champion racers
of the South, In the first race agin Sir
Walter, the four miles was covered by
Eclipse in 7:54, and in the second he
done the first heat in 7:58. In Novein
ber 1822, he was matched agin Sir Wal
tor, a Southern horse, but the owner of
Sir Walter paid forfeit. Both the horses
ran one heat for $1,500 a side, Eclipso
winnin' with ease, makin' tho first milo
in 1:45. Then Col. Bill Johnson, of
Petersburg, Va., matched lieniry agin
Eclipse for $10,000 a side. That wan
the greatest raco between the North and
South. Over 60,000 people went to the
course on Long Island to seo the race.
Billy Crofte rodo Eclipso in tho first
heat, an' Houry won it-the only heat
Eclipso over lost. Sam Purdy mounted
Eclipso for the second hoat. He was
dressed in red. The people clicred him
an' he mado Eclipse win the race easily.
Thje Southerners were cleaned out of
money by that race. Eclipse's timo was
7:37 in the first heat, 7:49 in the second,
and 8:24 in the third, so that he made
the twelve miles in 23:50-a great per
formance. IIonry carried 108 pounds
an' Eclipso 126, but ho never ria agin.
I trained him onee after thait to race
with Bert-rand, a horse from the Smith,
but Bertrand didn't show up. In my
opinion, no htorse that ever lived coild
heat Eclipso in a long race. Inl 1824
the New York Jockey Club took Oineral
Lafayette to iarlem to see Eclipse, an'
thy took fouilitary companies along.

BAnuEY FOl FIEEDiNo.-In thiscountry bar
ley is used mainly for brewing; li Europe
and Eastern countries it Is fed to stock, par.
ticularly horses. As compaired to oats it Is
more nutritious and less heating. The
produt of an acre of barley il of moro value
as food for horses or other amia.s than
the product of an acre of oats of equal
quality. The grain bcing harder when dry
than oats, it cannot be consumed so well in
a raw state, but If fed ground it should be
soaked in water or boIled. When ground
and fed in conjunction with cut fodder,
there is nothing superior as fo(V for work
ing teams. Barley to keep tihe system
open and the skin soft. 8o long as our
American farmers giow barley with no use
for.it in view but malting, so long will it
be subject to extreme fluctuations in price,
and the business a risky and uncertain ote
for the grower. But whou the value of it
for feeding stock Is realized the markets
will be stedier anld the prolits of the crop
more certain. Many farmers rrow both
barley and oats, the one to sell and the
other to feed. It would be wiser, if the
soil is good for barley--is most all soils
are-to grow a portion at least for feeding
purposes instead of oats. Ground barley
is an excellent food for fattening hogs.
We know from actual experience that
horses will perfornie as inuch labor when
fed on barley as they (1o when fed on oats.

horses and mules had from the time I he army

Everybody has seen In the woods tie roots
of sonic trees planted by the birds or the
winds in the crevices of a rock, wandering
down the sides of the great boulder in
search of nourishment. Dr. Davy tells of
a case in which -% horse-chestnut, growing

for food. They passed seven foot up a
contiguois wall, turned at the top, passe(
ilown seven feet on the other shle, fount
the needed nourishment, there which their
own barren home denied them. A yet
more singular instance of this search for
food is related. A seed[ had been droppdd
by one of nature's husbandmen, a bird, in
the decaying trunk of an old tree. it
sprouted, put forth roots, branches and at
