Isaac Mars ton, we stepped on board the north bound train on the Michigan Central for a day s sojourn in and about Bay City. The day was warm and the ride.to Bay City pleasant as all trips are, over this division of the Central. A three hours ride brought us to West Bay City, a fine business place which has sprang up almost by mag ic, but exhibits those characteristics that make up stability, enterprise and certain prosDeritv. Here we wer met by Judge Marston, and seated in his buggy behind a coal black five years old Morgan mare, were in "a jiffy" off at a 2,40 pace for River Side Park farm, the country seat of the Judge which is located near the village of Kawkawlin, on the Mackinac divi sion of the Michigan Central about three miles north west from Bav City. To" this farm there is, all of the way, either a paved street, or a macadamized road, and the ride was a delightful one. Arriving at the farm house, we were very kindly re ceived and hospitably served with an excellent dinner by Mrs. J. F. Mul- dran, wife of the wide awake mana ger of the Judge's broad acres, and fine stock. Havincj had our then present neces sities full relieved, we sallied forth to see what the Judge had been able to do amid the pine stumps of Kawkaw lin in the brief period of five years. The farm is located on a sand ridge once covered with a heavy growth of pine timber and but recently thought to be worthless for all agricultural purposes. Doubting this, and finding on the river bank a beautiful sight for a rural home, with a spring of al most ice cold water as clear as a crys tal, the Judge invested in the .spring of 1879 in a fractional quarter section of these lands to which he has since added until now he has 212 acres, al most all of which is under cultivation in a more or less advanced state of perfection, and which is beyond question the making of as fine a dairy farm as there is in the state, and which will soon be good returns as any 212 giving as acres that can be found in any of the southern counties of Michigan. The result of the work down there under . Judge Marston's direction proves, conclu sively .that for stock growing purpos es the pine stump lands of Michigan, are of real value, and ought to be made "exceedingly productive and profitable. . We doubt if a . finer 30 acre field of clover can be found in the state than is to day seen amid the yet unremdved pine stumps on that farm. The result of this effort on the part of Judge ' Marston to make a farm, that should be a source of rev enue to its proprietor, through the sole agency of tenants has been a success; and also proves that the Judge was exceeding ly fortunate in the selection of the man who has and has had from the beginning, all this interest in charge, encluding the care and development of the celebrated herd of Jerseys, placed on this farm by Judge Mars ton, which for the value of the indi vidual animals and the general ex cellency of the herd is not excelled in the West. Of this herd of Jerseys much could be written that would be of interest to those engaged in stock growing, but might not be of value to the gen eral reader; yet we cannot do justice to our own views of the importance of the dairy interests of Northern and Central Michigan, with saying that this herd proves the value of the Jersey as a butter breed, and from it the farm to day is made to pay a large interest on the money it cost, and the necessary expense of putting the land in condition for stock grow ing purposes. The Judge now owns about thirty head of pure bred Jersey cows and heifers with ' several grades; many of these are exceedingly valuable animals. He has among them a heif er calf dropped in Dec. 1883 that would readily bring $1,030 in the market and if she does well would be a cheap heifer to buy at those figures. The Judge bought her in New Jersey, and paid a round $400 when sirs was only ten days old. Her breeding is the best, and in appear ance she is a fine looking, vigorous calf; one that would attract attention and admiration anywhere. He, also, has some half dozen, heifer calvesr dropped on the farm that in the pres ent state of the Jersey fever, are worth almost any price he could have a face to ask for them. His yearling heifers arc, also, very fine animals, one or two of which are of more than ordinary value owing to their pedigree tracing to so many of the strains noted for their butter rec ords. At the head of the herd . is Farmer's Son, 7940, by "Farmer's Glory" one of the most celebrated Jersey bulls ever imported into this country.. His dam was imported Clover Bess, 7505, who has a wonder ful butter record. In this herd may be found imported Rose of Sharon, whose butter record is i9lbs. 202. of unsalted butter in seven days, on grass alone. Forrest Queen of Rev erside 9993, Bagley's Mayflower of Riverside, Dahlia of Hillcrist, and a score more of as fine cows as one would wish to see, varying in value from a few hundred to four or five thousand dollars each, and some of which could not be bought at any price. It is a fact that this herd . has been selected and bred with great care, for the purpose of establishing one of the best herds in the West, and there can be no doubt that the Judge has succeeded beyond his most sanguine expectations. The day at the farm passed all to quick, and as the shades of evening fell upon as we were reluctantly com pelled to leave this delightful spot and return to Bay City, but as we did so we felt sure that we had seen the work of a master hand in the dc velopement of the industrial interests of that portion of our State that ' had -not very generally attracted public attention, , but the possibilities of which, in the hands of men of enter prise and push, are rich beyond com putation. . It was our purpose to return home on the evening train, but consented to remain over, and view some of the industrial interest's of Bay City, ' and visit the stock farms on the east side of the county on the following day, so we were driven to the Frazier House in Bay City, one of the finest hotels in Michigan, secured pleasant quarters for the night; and spent the evening iiv pleasant social iottw.rse With our long time fricmi, Hon.j.- 'iej Berney, and were mor than dclig'it ed with his many reminiscence- of the early history of that now beUur ful city.. i : . Space forbids further report in this issue, but in our next - we shall note what we saw and learned on the fol lowing day.
