The modern American thoroughbred, as we see him at our present day race meetings and horse shows. Is the product of four centuries of breeding, training and experimenting. The ancestors of the present numerous equine family were brought to Virginia by the early English settlers and Virginia and adjacent parta of the Bofath have always been famous as the breeding ground of thoroughbreds. However, much of the breeding of thoroughbreds which Is and has been done In this favored region baa been carried cm for love of the task rather than for financial returns. There Is a wide difference between American thoroughbreds and those bred In other notable horse-raisin- g sections (for Instance, Ireland), but It would be difficult to find an American horseman who will not argue up and down that the Yankee steeds are as fine examides of training as may be found anywhere on the globe. The American thoroughbred Is admittedly shorter than his English prototype, but It Is claimed that this lack of stature Is more than counterbalanced by soundness and superior constitution. States and In the , Horsemen In the United United Kingdom hold to different ideals In breeding that are bound to be reflected by certain dissimilarities In the animals produced. In America the tendency has been to develop thoroughbreds that will run comparatively short distances at maximum speed, whereas In England greater at- - . tentlon Is bestowed upon the problem of breeding horses that will run long distances and will carry weight It Is to be expected that with the passing of racing as the supreme Held of usefulness for the American thoroughbred there will be a tendency on the part of Y&nkee breeders to more nearly approach the English standard, which Is supposed to produce horses Ideal for private use. .. The breeding of thoroughbreds In America has been carried on most extensively In the States of Virginia, Kentucky, California, Montana, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, New York and New Jersey. The principal requisites are an equable climate,, good soil with a foundation of limestone, plentiful water and ad abundance of sweet grass. There are yet In existence many breeding farms of modest pretensions, but the tendency of recent years hppears to be to create vast estates where wealthy men specialise In the breeding of thoroughbreds by aid of every facility that money, and thought . can provide. In Kentucky a few years ago eight. . stock farms were merged by a millionaire Into one vast breeding estate of fully two thousand seres. Experienced breeders figure that It. costs not less than $125 to raise a thoroughbred yearling stock farm and this sum merely at an cross-countr- a mount for the -- timber-toppers,- the r covers cost of feed and labor and taken iuj account of the Investment represented by the stock farm usually a heavy one. , There are breeders who declare tha unless they can sell each of their yearlings for a price close to 500 they do not make a reasonable profit, but In the South, where labor Is cheap and where the Initial cost of Im much of the land was fairly low. It Is possible for breeders to maks f money from sales at lower figures I than that mentioned. iV The organisation and management1 Vw of an breeding form Is Interesting from the manner In which It insures attention to detail. Tbe own- er of the form Is usually his own manager, but In some instances there Is also a resident manager to handle matters when the owner Is absent as he most be much of tbe time If he atetnds the fairs, horse shows and horse sales. Under the manager are a number of skilled trainers, each of whom Is responsible for the education of a certain number of horses, and has the assistance of several helpers In his work. In addition to this staff there Is a boss or foreman for each barn and under each barn boss is enrolled a number iff grooms, exercise boys, etc. At some of the costly forms in Virginia and Kentucky we find every modern facility from a private electric light and power plant to feed cutters that not only take the grain from the private elevator and crush it, but mix the feed In any desired proportions.

If one has a small closet partitioned off In the cellar with a window for ventilation, vegetables and fruits of all kinds may be kept Indefinitely. If windows stick and are hard to open, grease the cord with a little oil and pour a little around the window frame.
