Nevor beforo has there been such a demand for huntlng horses ns at prcj ent, and yet ln looking over thin vasl country of ours, In whlch thero are In mimernble dlstrlcts ln every way sult? able to the brcedlng of the typo, I can see no organlzed effort to supply the markot. Tho huntcr ag a type In Amorlca Is nn nccldont. He comes by chance. In many cases ho rcstilts from hla own Inablllty to wln on the track or turf, the purpose for which ho was prl mnrlly bred; but In the great majority of instances he comes wlthout rliyme or renson, nnd ls due to no definlto breeding prindple. When we think of the many great tttilmala whlch Amerlca haa glvbn to tne hunt Ing fleld, j-roduced ln thls hap hazard way, ls lt not aurprlslng whon wo romember Ihat they wore but the crealures of chance. Tho Pledmont soctton of Vlrglnla, that beautlful blue grass roglou of lltnostone and undulatlng hlghlands. is liiiqiiestlonably tho chief produeer of Amerlcan liunters. Yet even there no systomatlc plan of breeding to the typo Is followed. I do not know of a siuglo horseman ln Vlrglnla who ht-oed.. huntors ns a type. Many of the horses at stud ln the rural dlstrlcts nro far moro sultable for tlie plow s.or the bonoyard than for slres to perueffi nte thelr deflelencles. The Ignojranco and lmllfference of the farmersJHs so great th>t tho vory poorest anfl most worthlesa mares aro often seie.^ed for breeding purposes on the prlnelple^that slnoo thoy nre unflt for anything olso they must oarn thelr keep as brood mares, ?* Half of tho foals thus obtalnod aro actually not worth tho tlmo lost by the mare ln foallng them, and the practlce ls ono whlcll. of course, can? not possibly yleld tho farmer a protlt. lnstead of improvlng tho breed ho eon? tlnues to lower tho type, whllo the cry for tho better anlmal grows louder and loudor. Brokendown Anlinal*. It ts a common slght on court days to see droves of brokendown anlnials, brought from the cities for sale to the farmers at prlces ranglng from $ 10 to $100. who themselvcs, b.v tho cxc-rclse of a llttle judgment, could supply other niarkets wlth a superlor horse. The worat of lt ls that these nondescrlpts and equlne curs form the foundation stock of the subsequenf breeding-. A few more voars and tlio famous couti trv-bred Virginla horses that hore the matohless troopers of Stuart and Fitz Lee wlll be thlngs of the past unless prompt stcps aro taken to cducate the farmer and encourage moro Judiclous methods In horse-breedlng. When we conslder that there are about twenty reeognized hunt clubs in the State of Virginia (more than in anv other Stfrt'e), the prosent condi? tion of horse-breedlng is a sad com mentarv upon thelr energy and thr ft and interest ln the wclfare of the horse These very hunt clubs could easily comblne to form a State asso? ciation which could d.. much for the horse-breedlng Industry by the educa? tlon and encouragement of the farmer. Upon hini rests the real solutlon of the matter, for no matter how earnest and enthusiastic they may be, a few mon of wealth and intelligence cannot malntaln tho general standard of horse fle-h in the face of such degenerating Influencea as the methods of breeding now In vogue. Mlnor assoclations of the farmers could be formed in the locality of each hunt club and valuable information as to the breeding and raising of horses, speoially adapted to the pecullarlttes of the partlcular section, clrculated among them by means of free pamphlets, etc. In cases where practical the hunt club could malntaln at Its kennels a stud and charge only a moderate fee for the servlce of sultable brood mares. One or two stahions of*approved type would easily pay for thelr own keep, and wlth such encouragements held out to hlm the farmer would soon patronlze the club stud in preference to inferlor anl? nials of the nolghborhood at a higher fee. Iii-ppinln on Hunt Clubs. I liave seen enough ot farmers and tlieir ways to feel that any plan de pendlng upon their co-operation and fiunnclal support ls doomed trom the start, but such a plan as the above is not dependent upon the farmer. but upon the hunt club. The almost lmme diate results would supply the exam? ple to the precept, and in the course of a fow years, when the local market had beeome well established, the lesson would bear frult, and the farmer would recognlze ln tho breeding lndii3try a natural resource of his country and a valuable adjunct to the pursult of agrl culture. A few years more and tho Leglsla ture would follow the lead of the hunt clubs and requlro stalllons to be llcensed and adopt somo method of Inspectlon under whlch only horses measurlng up to a hlgh standard would be permltted to stand a stud.

Vlrglnla manager -wroto Sowanee and endeavored to arrange a g.ime wlth htr ln Norfolk, according to the custom of recent years. Sowanee ln reply offered to play us on November 6 ln Tennes see. Thls date was already contractod for by Vlrglnla Mllltary Instltute. Several attempts to arrange a game on other dates proved futlle. In thls con? nectlon lt may bo remarked that, lf tho maln assumptlon of the edltorial wore correct and Vlrglnla really were a "qultter," she would have dropped Se waneo ln 1007 after Sewanee had de feated her.

"Lflorts to arrange a game wlth Vanderbilt falled also, Virginia re fuslng to play ln Tennessee." Thls final case ls not only false, but the complete contrary of the truth. Vir? ginla took the Inltiatlve, and offered to go to Tennessee to play Vanderbilt, and left no stone un turned to arrange a game. The edltorial states that "there ls no good reason, save obrdlnacy or fear of defeat, why football games should not bo arranged with the Vlrglnla Poly technic Instltute, "Washington and Leo, Agrlcultural and Mechanlcal and Se? wanee and Vanderbilt, whlch, llke Vir? ginla, North Carollna and Georgetown, nre the rccognlzed leaders of Southern collegiate sports." We might liumbly Bubmit ono other roason. Wo have only one fooball team, and not two or three, and that one is composed of stu dents. Wlthin her own relatlve class Virginia plays inore games than Yale, Harvard or Prlncetori. In Issulng this statement, the execu tive commltteo of the General Athletic Association ls departing from its cus? tom.
