From the Rrvedt r's Gazette.
The sensational performance last
season of the stallion Jerome Eddy
naturally drew the attention of horse
men to his breeding, and as his sire,
Louis N.ipoleon, is undoubtedly the
most successful son of Volunteer in
the stud, some account of the estab
lishmrnt of Messrs. Dewey & Stewart,
by whom he is owned, will be of in
Louis Napoleon, whose dam is
Hittie Wood, by Sayre's Harry Clay,
is a bright bay in color, stands 1514
hands high, and weighs 1,150 pounds
in stud condition. He is a strongly
m tde horse, and stamps his impress
strongly upon all his get. Hesides
Jerome Eddy, of whose performance
it is unnecessary to speak further, he
is the sire of Spinnella, whose record
of 2:30 at mx years old is a creditable
one. Spinnellft'g dam is of unknown
breeding, but ah? also threw to the
cover of Louis Napoleon the bay
colt Symbolic, that waa given a trial
in 2:31 last fall. Reynard, another
of his colts, got a record of 2:40,
with only a few week's handling, and
can now trot better than 2:30.
Joe Gavin, the stable companion
of Louis Napoleon, is a brown stal
lion, by Messenger Duroc, and his
d im 1s Fanny Mapes, the dam of
Jerome Eddy Cora Bell, the only
one of Joe Gavin's get that has been
trained, showed, at the State Fair in
1880, the fastest half-mile heats ever
tro-ted by a two year old in Michigan
and last fall showed a mile in 2:31
Another addition to the stallions
will be made next spring in George
Milo, three years old, a full brother
to Jerome Eddy. He stands 15
hands high, weighs 1,000 pounds, is a
ark bay in color, and has never been
' worked for speed. He will be limited
to eight or ten trotting bred mares
There are in the stables of Dewey
& Stewart thirty-five head of horses.
twf e of which are brood mares.
O ie of these is a fu'l sister to Jeronu
E My, and two of them are.half sis
ters, their dams being Fanny Mapes.
Tli -re are two daughters of Alexan
der Abdallah in the lot; three
mares by Louis Napoleon ; one by
Hambletonian Star (a full sister to
George V.) ; one by Speedwell Ham
bietonian, dam by George M. Patchen;
one by H iy Middleton, and one by
Trophy, dam Enchanter by Adminis
trator. Among the young stock is a
filly that will attract attention by rea
son of her strong inbreeding, she be
ing by Jerome Eddy, out of a half
sister to that horse, her dam being
Fanny Mapes. She is certainly a
wonderful field trotter, and her groom
tells me that she is equally fast in
harness. Among the sales recently
made from these stables are the fol
lowing : Ben Harris, two year old
stallion, by Louis Napoleon, dam
Fanny Harris, to R. W. Beeker, of
Monroe, Mich.; Roland, yearling
stallion, by Joe Gavin, dam Fanny
Tarris, to C. E. Abbott, of Owosso ;
Edgar Bell, weanling stallion, full
brother to Cora Bell, by Joe Gavin,

As an item of interest to those of
our readers engaged in stock raising
it may be of interest for us to state
that Mr. G. W. Farlee, of Trenton,
N. J., has recently sold to Richard
Peters, 01 Atlanta, Georgia, a 7
months old Jersey heifer, Valette,
15,674. for (400 and that in the
last year Mr. Farlee has sold 15 head
of Jerseys at an average price of $585,
each of which 5 were cows, 4 yearling
heifers, 1 yearling bull, 3 bull and 2
Seventeen years ago the Turf,
Field and Farm located its offices at
37 Park Row, New York, and its
rooms became the resort of thousands
of distinguished men, fond of breed
ing and sport, residing in all parts of
the country. It voiced the senti
ments of these and became a recog
nized power. It excluded from its
pages everything that was not ele
vated and manly and it made pop
ular the literature of the turf and
field. Its circulation rapidly spread
until it covered every state and terri
tory in the Union and the journal is
now accepted as an authority abroad.
The great fire on the 31st of Janu
ary, 1882, which wiped out its offices,
drove it for a few months from Park
Row, but it has been back in the old
neighborhood since April, where it
has been conducted with rare zeal
and ability. Its reputation is higher
and itH circulation greater than ever.
Its opinions are eagerly consulted and
articles from it are widely quoted.
It is a pleasure to see a journal like
Turf, Field and Farm, of positive
convictions, unflagging enterprise
and decided merit, riding the waves
The Estey Organ Industry.
Presuming that it may interest the
many friends ot Mr. Jacob Estey, In
Owosso, to know something of his
organ industry at Brattleboro', Ver
mont, we give place to the following
which was sent us by a friend who
resides at Brattleboro', and who
knows whereof he writes:
" The music of the Estey organ can
now be heard around the globe, or
at least in all civilized parts of the
earth. The sales of the instrument
made by Jacob Estey & Co., at Brat
tleboro' have extended to Europe,
South America and other foreign
lands within a few years, and with a
growing demand for their organs in
our own country, their factory has
been run to its fullest extent for sev
eral years. The year 1882 has been
unusually prosperous one for the com
pany. I heir increased business has
necessitated additional shop room
and a larger dry nousc for lumber.
A new building has been fitted up
with machinery and a spacious dry
house erected, with a capacity for
100,000 feet of lumber. It is a substantial-brick
building, having an
improved system for drying, invented
by Col. Levi K. Fuller, one of the
Some 60 additional skilled work
men are now employed, making a
total force of 560 men. The pro
ducing capacity ol (he works has been
increased one-eighth in 1882. The
factory has turned out 16,000 perfect
organs the pasl year, and the sales of
the company have been about it
000,000 in this period. The com
pany have found it necessary to run
their factory nights a considerable
portion of the time. They have a
model establishment, heated by
steam, lighted by gas and supplied
with all modern appliances, machin
ery and conveniences. Their business
for 1882 shows a handsome increase
over previous jears.

The Times, Owosso, has thrown the
first javelin at the American, tnat is
but the beginning of a long and bit
ter war. Our sad duty soon will
be to publish obituary notices of 10
editors and extend our sympathy to
two heart broken widows, for Dewey
will find that while Owen is a pati ft'
man, he is a bad one, and. after h
has been , railed a liar once or tw a
more, and his had it tnrown in
face that the Journal is the Deal paper,
then look out for gore.
Brother Pulver is mistaken, it was
the American that threw 4,the jave

itorofthis paper being a candidate for
the Owosso post office. And it may
as well be understood, first as 1. 1st ,
"gore" or no "gore," if a a man lies
about us we shall throw it back in his
face, and then leave him to waddle
in his own mud.
A Washington dispatch says that
it may be announced as almost certain
that if the next meeting of the Ju
