Touching examples of this were afforded in
the lingering fondness with whicn he clung to
Lis accustomed place of work, ani how he
prized the privilege of revisiting the scenes of
ail early life at the east But his religious ex
perience gave opportunity for the fuller mani

rare and beautiful testimony that ' He was

accompanying testimony. "He was not known

House Ham, m the Village of I'aw I'aw. ex
clusively. DESCBIPTI05.
Vounn Bashaw is a beautiful dark brown,
stands lo-. hands high and weighs l)0!on.
He is a tine sauare trotter and for his age. m
symmetry and beauty cannot be excelled, (a
seven vears old iri May, 1H74, and Is half
brother to the famous trotting mare Cozette,
owned by. ;. M. French of Detroit, foi which,
he paid 17,000. Cozetto trotted Balle heats to
tbe Buffalo track in 2:2t; , : trotted la 18" is
2:2e. She also took the first money a- the
State 1 an- at Kalamazoo, two yeais agi tin
took double mone by side of Molhe Newton,
ber mate. I ld Bashaw, the sire of Co
ani Young Bashaw, took first money foot
years ago at the State Fair, trotting low down
in the thirties. A half brother of Young
Bashaw trotted as low as 2:23; , in Chi i .
last tall. This horse was never tra::.ed he
being raised by ( has. McCarty of I'ontiac. anc
purchased of him by u till last fall, when we
gave him about two weeks work ou tbe track,
and be showed a nice, handy laii, trotr.ng m
at out three minutes.
Young Bashaw was sired by Hlack Bashaw of
Pontiac, he by Bashaw, he by aladin. he by
Basnaw, Jun., be bv Imperial Grand Hashaw.
The dam of Flack 'Bashaw was sired bf An
drew Jackson, grand dam by Why Not. oy io
ported Messenger. This cross with the Mes
senger combines more of tbe Arabian blood
of Imported Bashaw than is found in any
horse in this State. The dam of Young
Basbaw was sired by tbe Tayes horse, he by
DeWitt Clinton, he by old ( hDton or New
York. Dam bv the Ward horse, be bf Par
; son's horse of Bedford, he by old Eclipse,
thns making bun equal in blood to any horse
in this country.
Beferences can be l;ad of tbe following jen
tlemen as to ths blood and qualitv of the
B. Stanlev, C. McCarty, J. Frost, J. Mor
risev. and L. Dowel!, Pontiac: J. M. French,
R. C. Willson. A. II. Emery. J, M. Seeley,
Alonzo Holfe. J. Kengle. Detroit.
We bave a:so tbe well known horse
of the impson stock. He is a brown, thick
Ot, italkv made, heavy Loned horse of 1400
ibs weight. This horse is too well known lo
need comment, as be has plentv of stock in
this vicinity many oi them of which aro
selling as high as 250 and 9300 each. H- is
better known as tbe Hyames horse, having
made one season in this :lace tive rem ago.
His stock was of that malitv that we were i
duced to purchase him last winter. He can be
seen a all time tt the Willard House Barn.
