Breeders are Interested.
No event in live stock circles has
attracted so much atteDtiou in recent
years as the horse breeding experi
ment about to be inaugurated at
Fort Collins under the direction of
v the Bureau of Animal Industry. It
is not ho much the experiment itself,
*.B the fact tbat the government has
at last adopted the policy of breed
ing experiments. When the Bureau
of Animal Industry was first organ
ixed in the Department of Agricnl
ture investigation of breeding mat
ters was one of the prime obiects,
but as the first work required was in
relation to sanitary matters, gradual
ly there has grown up the idea that
t'uis was the sole end and aim of the
bureau. Even Congress considered
that in authorizing the appropria
tion last winter for this experiment,
they were inaugurating a new policy,
aud there were plenty of statesmen
who opposed the whole proposition.
But the policy ha 9 been inaugurated
aud it is safe to predict that within
a few years this branch of animal in
dustry will be the principal work of
the department, and sanitary work
will be a side issue.
Horsemen interested in the exper
iment about to be inaugurated and
the plan decided upon to construct a
model American carriage horse from
Standard Bred trotting stock is meet
ing with general approval. Mr. M.
H. Tichenor, probably . the leading
carriage horse dealer, trainer and
breeder in thia country, has tendered
to Prof. Carlyle the nse of bi 6 sls,
000 carriage stallion, which is ad
mitted to be one of the finest horses
of his type in the world. The com
mission authorised to select the
foundation stock for the experiment
is be ng tendered the use of some of
the finest and most valuable mares
in the country, and there seems to
'be a general disposition among horse
men to lend every assistance to the
government in making the experi
ment a success. All realise that it
is the commencement of a new fam
ily of horses that in the future may
make this country famous. It also
mepns that the time is not far dis
tant when instead of importing mil
lions of dollars’ worth of carriage

horses from Europe, this country
will be exporting to the whole world.
When this experiment is well un
der way it is expected that an ex
periment or two in cattle breeding
will be started. This oountry has
never yet produced a type of cattle
aud it is believed that a type could
be produoed that would much better
fit natural conditions than the differ
ent breeds imported.—Record Stock

The Designer for January will un
doubtedly tempt more than one man
to investigate the pages to which she
acts as gate-keeper. Two article in
this number have a decidedly West
ern flavor: “ A Chinese New Year in
California,” by Jessie Juliet Knox,
aud “The Staudford University and
Its Girls,” by Sarah Comstock, Stand
ford, ’96. The unfortunate music
lover who has had a Wagnerian af
ternoon ruined for him by chatter
iog neighbors, will heartily appro
ciate “At the Matioee,” a monologue
by Harvey Peake; and the observing
man or woman, who has watched the
wonderful contortions of which the
human countenance is unconsciously
oapable, will concur with Bertha
Hasbrook, who writes on “The Mak

Beauty.” “Our Winter Boarders —
The Downy and Hairy Wookpeck
ers, by Craig S. Thomas, is a charm
ing bit of nature study, aud “A Din
ner of Herbs,” by Temple Bailey, is
a capital New Year story in which
two widows, two bachelors and a
bull-dog take prominent part.
“Pleasant Sitting Rooms,” by Mary
Kilsyth, shows how to combiue com
fort and attractiveness in the living
room. Id the faneywork line there
are “Initiating Household Linen,”
“Filet or Gitterfcyl Enbroidery,”
“Hand made Sweaters,” and “Rib

the captivating midwinter fashions
there are three pages of “Character

Fort Lyon Canal Meeting.
Although the attendance at the
meeting of the stockholders in the
Fort Lyon Canal Co. at Las Ani
mas on Monday was very large the
session was the most harmonious
one for seyeral years, and proves
that the old factional spirit has died
oat and good sense, friendship aud
business judgment are now in com
mand. Over 85,000 shares were
represented out of a total of 94,000.
The old board of directors were
reelected with the exception that
President Messenger refused to
again serve ou the board and Dr. J.
8. Hasty was elected a director in
bis place. The board now is B. T.
McClave, D. B. Nowels, J. 8. Hasty,
D. Mclntosh and J. J. Cooper. The
board met after the session and
elected the following officers for the
ensaing year: President B. T. Mo-
Clave, vice-president D. B. Nowels,
secretary Frank Kreybill, treasurer
D. Mclntosh. The superintendent
and attorney have not yet been
chosen bat it is probable that the
present incumbents Messrs. Burke
and Lubers will jvmain.
A committee of two each from
Prowers and Bent counties and one
from Otero, consisting of C. M. Lee
D. B. Nowels, H. L. Lubers, W. A.
Colt and E. H. Bradbury, was select
ed to investigate thoroughly the
queetious of reservoirs aud water
supply and make a report to the di
rectors of their findings. The reg
ular assessment of 22} cents per
share was voted.
An important resolution was
adopted regarding the development
of the King reservoir instructing the
board to either effect a compromise
with the A V. 8. B. & L L. Co., or
posh the suit to quiet title so the
work of development could proceed.
