a boy, whom he became successful In
business. Ho comes to Newport with bis
family every summer season. Dr. Gaines,
who is nbout tho same ago as Mr. Blake,
was born in Berkshire, and after spend
ing his early lifo upon a farm secured a
medical education and lives In Ncwpoit.
Iloth of these men being brought up on
a farm and both being lovers of horsei
during their early days, they naturally
took up tho breeding of the samo In a
small way for recreation. Several years
ago they began to buy and own some
stock together, and in 1900 Island Wilkes,
2.13 owned Jointly by them, was taken
to tho Newport house stable and adver
tised with other hordes as tho Newport
stock farm. Finding it necessary to se
cure large accommodations tho present
slto was selected by them, nnd tho busi
ness was continued under the namo of
the Newport stock farm. "
Mr. Ulake's tlrst choice for n brood
mare was the maro which ho raced un
der the name of Nclllo C, giving her
a record of After her racing days
weio over she produced for him tho good
race horse which was campaigned by the
farm in ISO I and secured a record of 2:12'i
under the name of Octavo P. The socond
foal of hers to obtain a record was tho
mnre which was raced by tho farm dur
ing tho past sonson under tho namo of
Firo Fly, obtaining a record of 2:2lli,
placing her dam In the great brood maio
Tlio first selection made by Dr. Gaines
for a biood mare was the mare now

Amber Wilkes, and Island Wilkes,

of 2:29U and has since been kept for
breeding purposes. She has produced in
all nlno foals, live by Island Wilkes,
2:13"i, tho tlrst of which was Island
Wilkes, Jr., 2:0fil. The other four ate
very promising and bid fair to make her
ono of tho great brood mares. The keep
ing capacity of tlio farm Is about 73 head.
The methods of bleeding, developing
and training at the farm are somewhat
different from tboso of most other breed
ing establishments. No stallion will be
kept for breeding purposes that has not
already a low record or ran show his
ability for taking one. The pioprletors
do not believe In breeding from stallions
that have, been over raced and over work
ed, but from stallions that were colt trio
lein nnd Just raced sufficiently to show
that they possessed race-horso qualities.
Only stallions havo been selected that
wero absolutely sound; that were not
afraid of objects; that were perfectly
kind, nnd nil possessing good action with
great style and beauty. In the selection
of brood mures tho samo ruin which they
adopted Iu the selection of their stallions
holds good, and they havo not been sn
lected so much upon their blood lines ns
upon tho qualities which they wish to
reproduce. The largo collection of sound,
