DeCoursey, of the firm of Garrett & DeCoursey, left for the East Sunday, his business calling him through Minnesota, Illinois and Iowa. The trip will occupy about three weeks, and when he re turns he will have completed arrangements for the shipment to Mountain Home of the finest lot of thoroughbred stock ever seen in this vicinity. These details are the prelim inaries in the furtherance of a project which Messrs. Garrett and DeCoursey have had under consideration for some time— the establishment of an uptodate stock farm. The headquarters will be on what is known as the Bert Smith ranch. To this will be added the Hot Spring ranch, recently purchased, and also 160 acres of raw land, east of town, which is to bo cleared up. The enterprise is to bo called the Mountain View Stock Farm. The promoters will breed trot ters, pacers, Percheron and Old enburg coach horses, Shetland ponies, shorthorn cattle and Berkshire hogs. When he returns Mr. De Coursey will bring with him an Oldenburg Coach stallion, val ued at $2600; "Nowood," whose pacing record is 2:12.1, valued at $3000; "Agnes R," pacing record 2:184; "Malcatoon," trial 2:20; also a number of trotting and Oldenburg Coach brood mares. lie will then take im mediate steps to have ground broken for a circular half-mile race course at the ranch head quarters. About 14 flyers will be trained there this summer, some of the animals belonging to Garrett & DeCoursey, and some to other turfmen. These animals are to be shipped to North Dakota early in June, to fill racing engagements in that state. From there they will bo sent to Winnipeg, Canada, and thence through Minnesota and Wisconsin, winding up the sea son through Idaho. The meet at Mountain View will probably follow the fall events at Boise, and efforts will be made to make it the most interesting and important ever held in the state. I ly!
