BREEDING BUREAUS PROGRESS. New York. February 8. The Breeding Bureau has , placed thoroughbred stallions for public service in 1 thirty-nine counties today and hopes to have horses ■ in all the agricultural counties by the beginning ■ of Hie breeding season. The brown horse Sprit:::, by Alheling. out at Gala, by Hambleton, which has been placed with i l lard s. Carlisle, Watertown, Jefferson County, v Y.. is one of tbe greatest additions to the breeding : Interests of this State; individually probably the most attractive. A well known horseman said of him: "Well. 1 1 know which horses gel Mill be BMSt conspicuous in the show ring in a few years, and if Spring is 1 put in show Shape I would as soon have his chances " for the blue ribbon at the National Horse Show as ■ any stallion in the country." Alheling. the sire of Spring, has been a success s in the stud and all his get have the flashy good looks of their sire. Alln ling is a Sterling horse, and nothing more is necessary to be said of his male line. Spring, like all the Athelings. was a i good racehorse, winning twenty-one races from l Jiis two year old to his four-year-old form. As I I two-year-old he was unplaced but three times in ■ seventeen starts. Another most important acquisition is the chesinui t horse St. Carolus. by St. Hlaise. out of Carina. St. Canaan is 10 hands 2 inches high and weighs over r I.2o0 pounds. This horse has been doing stud duty at Cortlandt H. Smiths Hampton Stock Farm in n Virginia.
