NEW YORK, Aprll IS.?There have been all sorts of reports, many of them ?tpparontly authentlc, as to how the boat crew wlilch is to represent tho L'nlted States in the Olympic regatta ln London is to be chosen. I am now ablo to glvo an authorita tive statem.nt from Jim Piikington, Which will settle the matter. ?The orlglnal plan formulated by Ju lian Curtls and myself will be adhered to," said Mr. Piikington. "According to the rules of tlie association, we ciiii pick twenty-seven oarsrnen who show up well in all or many of the regattas held before June lst. These men will con? test a_-_.li-.: one another untll we hav. .elected elght oarsrnen and sever'al sub Btltutes. There is no truth in the report that we i.-itend to pick a crew as a whole. By picklng elght of the best oarsrnen !n the country we will have no trouble ln boatins- them in tlme for them to get plenty of practlee togeth ?r before they go abroad ln July." Under thls plan lt ought to be possl? ble to get together a crew whlch wlll do credit to the country even if it does not win the world's champlonshlp. There ts great activity among the c_ri_i.n ln the East just now as the sesslon falrly opens, and Messrs. Pii? kington and Curtls wlll flnd no lack of candidates from whom to make a cholce. Among college oarsrnen this hns been a very busy week. The weedlng out process is going stendily forward and wlthln another week tho men who wlll mako up the regular unlverslty crews will have been chosen, und the work ol gettlng them into shape wlll be under way.

With Joo Coard nntl pther trottcrs, Finney did well along the llno of tlie Maryland and Virginia circult of falrs and race meet Ings in 1907. Joo Coaril began the season a green horse and closed It with a mark ol 2:16 1-4, whilo llttle. doubt was cnter tf.ined of hls abillty to trot in 2:12 over a half-mile track.

A horso whlch ls worth owning ls worth feeding enough good food to keep tlio animal ln a strong, henlthy condition. Now that the warm weath? er has set in for the sprlng and sum? mer seuson wltli tho natural result that tho gruss hns commencod to grow nlcoly ln our Holds, as usual, many of the farmers nre arrunglng to "turn out on grass" not only tlie cattle, hut the colts. brood mnres, nnd lnst, the work-horses, In order to savo feed. Of course, It ls the thlng to put this cattle on giass, und tlio young stock, too, and Krass alono whcro it .is good and a plonty of It ls usua'Ty sufll clent food for thc young growing Etock ,i they are In good llesli when put on tlio pasture, and are not put on grass too soon. But to requlre horses t work dally, nnd at tho salno tlmo <]e pcnd upon grass only for food, Is Imlt-ed a. mlstako, lt matters not what rarmer undcrtnkes It. Only last sprlng the wrlter was called by wire to see tlio horses be longlng to a gentleman who had moved from tho West to Vlrglnla. When ho arrlved at thc gontlemun's rarm he met mo und sald, "My horses are all .lying wlth a contaglous dis? ease, and I took the llberty of culllng on tho Stato voterlnarlan to come and seo what the trouble is." Thls was ( utjout thc middle of Mny, and thls | rarmer iiud four blg draft horses all out on a pasture ut nlght, though ut work durlng the day to plows, wa? gons, etc, as farm horses ure usually worked. They were very thln, though the-man fcald thut they Iiad beon xut until about three weeks before. I made a very careful examination of tho surrouiidlngs, as well ns of thc curcass uf one of the horses whlch dled the day beforo I arrlved. To me lt was a slmplo caso of deblllty, caused by too much work and especially u luck of good, nourishlng food. I told the gcntloman that tho norses wero only in need of, tho proper food und a plenty of lt. 1 told hlm thut hlR horses had boen overworked und un derl'ed. Ho replied that they had not beon overworked, us he had not boen able to get more than a half-duy's work from a team a day for some tlmo, as the horses wero dlseased, and thus too weak. '(Ho had Just told mo that they wero fat a month before.5 Thus lt ls, lf you do not feed a woiTT team you cannot expect tlie team tVJ do 4 good day's work. Half feod means haif work, whlch ln turn means a loss of time for man and beast, resultlng in a loss bf money to the farmer froni the lack of tlio use of the team, to say notWng of how much the valuo of the norse ls do creased by allowlng hlm "to get ln a brokon-down, weak condition. Allow your stock to s._rt Into tho wlnter poor, and thoy wlll ln most cases be poor all wlnter, and wlll thus bo vory troublesome to caro for dur? ing- tho ontlre wlnter: Again turn your horse-' out to de poiid upon grass too soon, or try to work thom daily and glvo thom noth? ing but grass to cut, and you will not only havo a team all of tho your whlch you should bo ashumed to let any ono see, but you wlll keep the most expen? sive toam thut you could possibly havo, as It will bo the caus_ of your belng wlthout feed another yoar, owing to the fact that no man can cultlvato a crop an lt should ho cultlvated wlth a half fed toam of horsos. Grass ls vory essontlnl for all stock In tho sprlng and summer, lf tlie work l.i of a nature where the animal may hnvo grass at nlght nnd graln mornlng, noon and nlght wltli somo rough, or long food at noon, In nddltlon to tho grass. But tiny practlcal" mnn knows that a horse whlch haa to work durlng tho day should not bo rectulred to stand up ull nlght und plck gmss from a pas turu in order to koop from starvlng, and thus got no rest for hls tired llmbs, or sleep nnd comfort for hls weary nuisclos. 1 havo lmd tho pleasure of llvlng ln the country all my llfo, wlth tho oxcoptlon of about elght months Home olght yours ago, nnd whilo the majorlty of faruinrs feed thelr work ttiiiriH at loiist onco a dny, nnd mnny of thom feed thom throo tlmos, yet \ havo alwtiyn iiotlcoiKothnrH who unrtortook to work tholr horses nnd at tho samo tlmo ninko tho horso depend upon grass alone for food, In fact, only ono day last summer I heard ono gontloninn nsk another what ho would ehnrgo hlm to pusture his horso per month In a cortaln flold, The mnn wlio owned tho pasturo told the gcntloman wlth tho horso Just what lt would cost, though tho ownor of the horne ropltod, "You ought not to chargo mo but half price aH 1 work my horso durlng llio day." However, the ownor of tho pasturo In turn sald, "Thon he wlll cat twloa aa much at nlght as n horse tliat does not work durlng the day." Tlio mnn wlth tlie horso thon sald, "Whon 3 got through wlth hlm at nlght ho ls too tired to stand up long and ocit grass," I mi>v tho horso in uu-stlou and from his eppedranco 1 could not lell whether ho v/ns too poor and tired to stand and eat grass all night, or whether he was too hungry not to eat as long as he could flnd the grass, though I saw the sama horse last Christmas and he wns at the same old gume?looklng for somethlnK to out. whllo I heard hls owner say thut hc dld not rnake much feed last year. und that he was not going to pay $13 a ton for hay to fe.-d nny horse. So It goes as a rule, lf horses are allowed lo j.'.o thln and weak all summer. thelr owners are not apt to mnko enough feed by worklng such horses to be able lo feed Ihe stock the next wlnter. Tliere Is no better way of debllltlng a horse, or tenm, than to start out ln the year by worklng the team hard every day and then allowlng the onl mals to d'-pend upon grnss alone for thelr support. Unlets the pasture Is very good, ahd the stock when placed on the same Is fat and strong. young. growing ani-' n*als, eolts, calves, or any other stock. can be fed n little graln dally to nn nd vantage, und lf the stock ls good, the extra feed wlll so Improvd the animal as to save cost. nnd mako money rather than odd to the expense. A hors<. TRut ls not worth feeding. and feeding well all thnt he wlll cat clean, ls not worth keeplng. The poor, half fed nnlmals are the ont- that not only suffer themselves for food, but they cause tholr owner to suf? fer as they aro never anythlng bul an e."pense. Such anlmuls are usuully too weak to do good work, too poor to ninke good meat, too ugly and thln to oell. I have often n-.ticed that lf the pa.s turo fleld was so sltuated as to allow the animals on grass to go to the stablo dally, and that there was food left In tlie stable, lhat the animals on grass would always make one dally trlp, If not more, to the f'tnblo nnd not only eat the graln whlch they could get, but wlll. as a rule, cat some dry hay a& other long food. too. They eat lt be? cause they want It, thelr system calls for lt, and they not only need It, hut often suffer from the luck of such food durlng grass season. Tako the human belng for example. We are fond of fresh vegetables durlng the summer seasons, but we also want our bread und meat. It is much easler to keep a horse in order by a little judgment nnd regular feeding than it is to got hlm to lmprove after ho hus ence gotten poor and weak. Remember thls and do not let your farm teams get poor from overwork and lack of at? tentlon slmply to savo foed, when by doing this you aro undoubtedly t in? creasing your expense account, Instead of saving money. Grass ls a splendid tonic, all growing stock should bo turn? ed to grass as soon as the grass ls good enough for them In tho spring, and ns soon as the weather is suitable to leave them out, but the work animals should never be allowed to dopend upon grass alone for food. aUERIES AND ANSWERS.
