Reference to Value* on the Mar-
Kit Some General Vlenn,
The subject of growing and feeding young
h irs< * is next in importance for consideration
by Cramers starting this industry to the
of breeds and the manner of mating, j
The time has come, in connection with horse
for large attention to be paid to |
th< general improvement of all classes. With |
;'.; - :. - :i basis, tho next object shojld be to
1>:.,.1 in distinct classes. If a draft horse Is :
wanted, und this is likely to piove mire j
profitable In this sei-tion of the countr? vhan •
jiiiy ether for many years to come, let the
ji'.an;* tie first Well selected end the service
be oi tin 1 bf.st available. In no other way j
will the Improvement sought be attained. A |
:. :-, 1.- usually bred with the primary ob- j
Ji 1 i of sale, and for this purpose, while the !
farmer is about It, he should aim to secure j
a foal which will prove desirable and bring
„ price when taken to market.
Beginning with distinct classification— that !
Is, fccurlng a horse for a definite purpose,
cari' should be exercised iv rearing the foal.
And this relates to tempering the animal by
kindly treatment as well as to the proper 1
feeding .■; him in order to secure natural '
development arid conformation. It is as uecos- i
i-ary that a horse should be well ftd on good j
substantial provender as that a steer should j
not be allowed to become stunted in growth \
from being forced to go hungry. No matter
of how good blood an animal is possessed,
if he is not cared for as lu 1 should b? during
the progress of his growth, he will result in
nothing better than an ordinary scrub. There I
13 a period in the life of a colt as theie
Is In the choldhoDd of the human being when
the animal may falsely develop. It never pays
to compel a colt to shift for himself. He I
may become and seem to bo full, but If the
food lacks stamina, the horse will develop into
the same condition.
A writer to the Breeders' Gazette, refer
ring to this subject, says:
You must feod right as well as breed right
for the successful production of a good ani
mal. Becretary Wilson, in his recent tour of
observation in ' the Western horse-breeding
sections, was of the opinion that so many un
<lersi^ed horses were caused by the use of
trotting blood; but much of this lack of size
and substance- was caused by the rough-and
ready system of horse-keeping that is quite
behind the present times of advanced knowl
edge of what is proper care and feed to grow
and mature stock. Ever since the depression
i:i values of horses there has been a conse
quent lack of Interest in feeding and caring
for the farmer's most useful and indispensable
animal. Horses have been too cheap to breed
and too cheap to feed in the mind of the av
erage farmer of the West, who depends on |
the corn crop for his mainstay and considers
the sow as his most valuable stock. There
fore the stable has been turned into snw
pens, while the horse that has produced the
feed to make the sow profitable is left to shift
for himself, neglected and despised.
The value of a good, well-fed horse as an
ellieient auxiliary to the successful operator
of a farm has been ignored by many who have
been producing cheap grain at a profit with
cheap horses. Xot only have they been in
different to young stock, but also to the
proper attention of the work horses. CheaD
grain makes cheap feed and a good horse
should be worthy of his keep. The manufac
turer when his valuable machinery beoomen
cheaper does not try to wear It out auicker.
The majority of farmers know how to feed
cattle and hogs and realize the importance
cf proper management for profitable produc
tion, but say it does not pay to breed good
torses because It does not pay to give them
the attention and feed.
The quality of an animal not on'.y depends
or the blood but also on the management
and feed it may have received while growing
to maturity, and that develops size, soib-
Btance. stamina, and soundness. By Improper
care you can Btuut the Bize, oheck the sub
6tance, weaken the stamina, and make horsee
liable to unroundness. It Is not blubber you
wont for your feed, but bone and muscle that j
should be ripe and ready for service at ma
turity. The superiority or mediocrity of our
horses does not only depend on improved
Btandrds o! breeding but a better system of
horse-keeping. "Blood will tell," but gen
erous care Is the best Interpreter. Right bred
and right fed will catch the high dollar now
and tomorrow.
The Drover's Journal offers some observa
tions of timely Importance to breeders, as
A fe-w breeders are timid as to the future
cf good harness horses, for fear that so
jnany fine horses may be prochiced that prices i
will fall below the cost of production. Such
pessimistic views are contrary to the ex
perience of the enterprises of breeding fine
horses. For more than a century the breed
ers of Prance, Germany, Belgium and Eng
land have made a s-peclalty in breeding fine
coach and draft horses, and still those coun
tries are far from being oversupplied. In
fact, the above countries are the best buy
ers of fine American horses, and the United
States is being thoroughly canvassed for
choice horses to supply the European de
mand. If the effort of more than one hun
dred years has failed to produce an over
supply of desirable torsrs in Europe, Ameri
can breeders need not be apprehensive of
overstocking the domestic market. When
dealers will pay as much as $355 for a single
draft horse for exportation and proportional
ly as high for coach horses and drivers there
need be no fear that fine horse breeding ia in
aar.gcr of being overdone in this oountry.
The Indiana Farmer is another Journal
which regards with favor the extension of
the industry of horse breeding at the present
time. In its latest issue it says:
Jiore capital Is required for breeding good
horses than in any other live stock industry ■
and the breeder has longer to wait for re
turns upon his investment, but If he has been
Judicious in selecting his foundation stock
and carries the same good Judgment Into his
breeding, feeding and handling the rewards
are greater than in raising any other class of
live stock.
Never before has the United States sent
abroad so much of her agricultural products
es during the fiscal year just closed. In
breadstuffs alone the exports of the year
amounted to nearly $1.000 000 for each busi-
Ee-ss day, and will be more than $100,000 000
ta excess of last year's exports of breadstuffs
Nearly all articles classed as breadstuffs have
participated in this increase. In "provisions "
In wnich t^rm are included beef, hog nnd
dairy products, there is also a marked in
crer.se-, the total exports of provisions for the
year l,?ing likely to reach $100,000,000 in value
Most of Uiis increase, however, J 3 m hoe
pr< aucta. Exports of bacon, which were '
$34,1*7,147 in value last year, are likely to
reach $44,000,000 this year. Lard shows a
Bimilar incrfase, the figure.?, which last year

Ing in popularity with our foreign customers
the exerts of beef cattle having Increased
materially, while those of beef, either fresh
canned or salted, have failf-d to show any
Increase, in most cases a decided falling off
being noticeable. The numDer of cattle- ex
ported during the first ten months of the
flscnl year were 379.663, against 310,478 in the
corresponding months of last year- the value
in the ten months of 1898 being J32 352 833
against $25,866,703 In the corresponding
months of last year, while fresh beef in the
6ame period fell from 242,168.034 pounds in
ten months of 1897 to 227,434,373 pounds in the
corresponding ten months or 1898, salted beef
showing a fall of "35 per cent for the year

CHICAGO. June 17.— The uplifting of the
curtain of rain-chareed cioudi that have Jpr
about three weeks overhung the Western
skies, let in such floods of sunshine today that
values of wheat were withered. July closed
with a loss of H&9B%C, and September with
a loss ol 2K@2%c. Corn loft off I%@lV2<>

pfovisj[pn£ wore: Pork, 12Vjc; lard, 6@7%c,

WeaK foreign markets and brilliant weather
in the winter wheat belt presented an op
portunity {or short sellers of wheat, which
they hastened to ayall fnenifielvcs of at tl)6
start. September, which closed yesterday at
70%@70%C, started today at from 70c down to
6?Tic, and after touching 70 1 4c for a moment,
it beg-an to roll down hill, and did not cease
its descent for two hours, except to gather
force for a further fall. In that time it had
dec-lined to 68»ic. December in the same time
had gunk from 70 1 ,*!g70%c > around the open
ing to 69Vi@C9%c. July had sold off from 78V4c
to 7G'ic.
Everybody sold wheat, and evinced no dis
position to buy It back, even on such a break
as that shown above. There was nothing In
their minds, apparently, but the coming of a
great crop of now wheit here and in Europe,
and the hastening of the advent of the homo
crop by the cessation of rain and the fair,
warm weather that had generally succeeded
The market refused to respond for more
than a few minutes at a time, and then only
a small fraction, and grew still weaker as the
close of the session approached. Liverpool
was 3>id lower in July, and l%d in Septeni
The Paris market was heavy also, and Ant
werp extremely weak. The domestic receipts
were small, and Atlantic port clearances
large, but such matters were, lgnored. The re
ceipts at Chicago were 9 cars, against 19 a
year ago, aud at Minneapolis and Duluth 77
car loads, compared with 227 the correspond
ing day last year. Atlantic port exports of
wheat and flour were eoual to 700.000. Argen
tina shipped only 272.000 bu this week. July
opened lc lower at 7S@7S%c: sold down to
77% c; up to "Sc: then dropped off to 75%G, tihe
closing price. September began %@%c down,
at 70c. df-ellned to 60^c, advacned to 70 1 / 4 c,
then fell off to 6SSo bid at the close.
The reappearance of the sun in the Western
country had a depressing influence on corn.
It thawed out a good deal of long corn that
holders had frozen to for some time, and !t
all dropped into the pit. July opened %@M>c
down at 32T4@33c. sold off gradually to 31%@
32c bid. the resting price.
The weakness in oats was mainly in sympa
thy with the other grains, although the
weather was to some extent a bearish factor.
July opened %c lower at 24>,&c, advanced to
24V4c. then weakened to 23% c, the closing
The decline in wheat and corn affected pro
visions unfavorably. There was a desultory
commission house selling. July pork started
20c lower, sold up to $9.62%, then declined to
$9.60, the closing figure. The range in lard
and ribs was unimportant.
Estimated receipts for tomorrow: Wheat.

NEW YORK, June 17.— The uncertain and.
waiting temper of speculation was shown no
less today by the stagnation in railroad stocks
than by the disposition to take up different
members of the group known, as specialties.
Dealings in the railroad list were few and
far between, and the only movement of prices
was the sagging tendency almost inev.ta'ols
In a lifeless market. Definite information as
to the conditions of the coming crops is what
speculators would most like to have. The
markets were full of rumorß today of damng3
and deteriorlation to the crops. The fai'uri
of the wheat market to reflect any crop dam
age was attributed to large selling »,f i»v<? ac
cumulations of the Leiter deal. But, coupk-d
with the reports of crop damage, it served to
confuse the speculative mir.d and di&courage
Money also showed a slowly hard nlng
tendency, and sterling exchange advanced en
demand for remittance of dividends and in
terest due to foreign holders on July 1. Th 3
violent movement of several of the specialt e3
reflected the general condition, and was with
out ffect on the market beyond the st'Ck
immediately dealt in. Tobacco, the rubbe*
stocks, General Electric, Leather pre'errtd
and Lead all showed substantial advances,
the dealings in Tobacco being on an enor
mous scale. Sugar fluctuated in a most ec
centric manner all day over a range of *ok
points, part of the time above and part of
I the time below yesterday's closing price.
Railway bonds were very du!l. in sympathy
with stocks, but prices were tetter held. To
tal sale-s, $2,690,000. United States 4s reg s
tered declined %: do coupon and the old
I 4s registered %, the old 4s coupon % 'n the
I bid price. The ntw 4s registered and the old
; 4s registered rose 2% and 1% respectively on
I sales over the previous sale.

New York stock gossip, reported by H. Hol

! street, National German-American Bank
building, St. Paul:
Post & Flagg wire us: Today's market
was dull, from beginning to end. and, al
though the appearance was rather wsak,
1 there was more or less deceptive buying made
by room traders, who were the only selleis.
I These professionals are, almcst to a man.
j bearish, exactly why they don't seem to bi
able to say. The only reason they give is
that prices are hig'a enough and the bull
I market Is over. We don't atjres with this
feeling, for we think the market acts as If
the reaction were about over, for on the de
cline dealings are very light ar.d tons dull.
Should any favorable news come, such ai a
capture of the Spanish fleet, there will be a
lively time among present sellers to get
their stocks back.
NEW YORK. June 17.— The Evening Post's
London financial cablegram: The stock mar

could be devised under the clrcumstanc:a.
