LITTLE SCOUT GOES TO LOUISIANA. George C. Bennett Donates the Veteran to the Breeding Bureau. New York. September 19. President S. F. Ileas-lip of the New Orleans Jockey Club is still seeking horses for his Louisiana Breeding Bureau. Last Wednesday he secured Little Scout from George C. Bennett. In speaking of the Bureau Mr. Hens-lip says: "The Bureau is made up from the New Orleans and the New Louisiana Jockey Clubs. .We work" in conjunction, and the horses donated, are tendered to the commissioner of agriculture. Thus far there has: been duly- one sire placed, lie is in Lafourche Parish in charge, of Colonel Tom Berry. Our plan is the same as that of the New York Bureau in that there is only a nominal charge for service. The latest contribution was that of Little Scout, which was donated by George C. Bennett. He was a sterling: racehorse and is a valuable addition to the bureau. "In my opinion the breeding bureau is an Institution that Is sure to bring lasting results wherever established. In Louisiana where mules are in such ready demand, there has been less attention paid to the upbuilding of the breed of horses than would otherwise have been the case. There is no reason why the state should not produce high-class horses, and already the Interest shown in our plans gives promise of the state taking Its proper place in the horse world. We have ideal pasture lands in many sections, and suitable marcs will be brought in by many of the planters, who have expressed an intention of. taking advantage of the .service to sires of fashionable lineage."
