RAISING MULES AT NANTURA. Lexington, Ixy.. April ." . — Nantura Kami, which in the days of Hie Harpers gave to the turf such celebrities as LongfeOow and Ten Breech, is destined to became a nursery for mules of a superior qua liiy. C. P.. Hawkins, who was one of the heirs to the late Frank H. Harper, mated ten of the thoroughbred mares he inherited from his uncle to Spani-li jacks last spring. The foals dropped this spring have caused Mr. Hawkins to decide to breed all of his mares to the jacks this year and he says it is his intention to gradually increase his band of matrons for this purpose. There is a great demand for mules and those out of thoroughbred mares are particularly desirable.
