A a article which appears in the sou venir number of the Western Horse man, -will be of especial interest to horsemen of Wayne county. This ar ticle reads as follows: The selection of stallions for a stock fariw is a momentous question. It often happens that one may be se cured that will fill all requirements, but to secure two that will come up to expectations is another task. George Amsden of Richmond, Ind., took upon himself this undertaking and secured a pair that are proving their worth as sires of speed and indi viduality. His selection of Oratorio, 2:13 and Prince Direct. 2:07, was a stroke of good judgment and business polioy. A glance at the breeding of each will suffice to account in part for the showing they are making in the stud. Oratorio is by Wilkes Roy, 2.24V&. the best bred son of George Wilkes, as well as a most extraordin ary progenitor of uniform and ex treme speed. His first dam is Can aonet, hy Dictator; second dam Fugue, 2:1914, by King Rene; third dam a Jouble producing daughter of George Wilkes and fourth dam a trlpple pro ducer by Clark's Chief Sit.

Which, gives him an enviable position among the sires of early extreme Bpecd. Prince Direct. Prince.

The yellow and whites are straining every nerve to get their men classified in track work, as the season is of un certain length. This classification can be explained best by taking the run ning high jump as an example. Four feet entitled the jumper to one point and by jumping four feet four inches he secured an additional point. Each man's total will be added to his color faction's total and the side which has the most points when the contests cease will win. It adds inter est to the competition for the men to know that they will remain on the same color side for the entire college course.

FORMERLY HE WAS A SPHYNX, BUT NOW HE DASHES OFF FRE QUENT BULLETINS TAFT'S METHODS NEW TO POLITICS. Washington, Feb. 21. The presiden tial candidacy of Secretary Taft has some distinctive features that are causing widespread and interesting comment.

The enormous outlay of money used in carrying on the Taft'propagan da is said to be far in excess of the expenditures of any former candidate for a presidential nomination. Secretary Taft believes in publicity and his campaign is being run on the publicity plan. It is a new departure from the old-time rule of politics. He is overturning all of the conventional methods of the political generals to sit up and rub their eyes in astonish ment. Campaign Breaks Record. There never has been a political campaign that was run so completely undr the full glare of the limelight. With two headquarters going at a full hea"d of steam one at Columbus and one at the national capital and with an army of press agents thronging the avenues of publicity, the war secre tary's candidacy has become known far and wide for it? publicity features.
