I . MANY WITHDRAWALS AT LEXINGTON. Dismayed Breeders Call Back Their Horses and the Sale Ends. Lexington, Ky., November 20. There was some improvement in the prices obtained for broodmares and weanlings at the Fasig-Tipton sale today, but not sufficient to encourage all of the consignors to offer their stock! In addition to the lots from the Millstream Stud, the consignments from Captain W. Harry Browns Senorita Stud, J. P. Chinns I.eo-natus Stud and Karl Juugbluths Waldeck Stud have been withdrawn and the few catalogued by W. W. Harden, Tliorndale Stock Farm and John II. Morris of Woodburn Farm, were not offered. Only a few or the poorest of the big consignment of R. H. McCarter Potters Request Stud were sold, the others being held out. There is a possibility that the consignment of J. P.. Haggin, Elmendorf Stud, will be withdrawn. Manager Charles II. Berryman is in communication witii Mr. Haggin on the subject tonight. The sale . will be concluded tomorrow. Today seventy-one head were disposed of for an aggregate of -1,775, an average of 0S. Of this number forty-five head were the property of George C. Bennett, of .Memphis, Tenn., and they brought .511,20.", an average of -19.2.. .The remaining twenty-live averaged only 37. The highest price was ,000 for the splendid mare, Dishabille, William Lakeland getting her. She will never race again because of a bowed tendon, but she is considered a genuine bargain at that price for breeding purposes. Milton Young got her dam, Night Gown, for ,350, the next highest price of the day. The only stallions sold, were Abe Frank and Intrusive. The latter was bought by E. It. Bradley and will go into the stud at Idle Hour Stock Farm. T. F. Kelly got Abe Frank and will probably send him to Texas. "I would not have sold those horses today," said Mr. Bennett, "except for the fact that I promised my wife that I would go out of the breeding business entirely if I had a losing year with my horses this year. I had a losing year and I felt that I was compelled to abide by that promise. Tlie sale, of course, was a big disappointment to me, but they are gone now and I am through as a breeder as soon as I get rid of about twenty broken down old racers and worthless two-year-olds sml my farm will be clear of horses entirely. Kings Counsel was not sold today, but he will go back into the ring tomorrow. I will not take him back home. I have nineteen horses at New Orleans, some of them yearlings, and I expect to get rid of them during the winter. I will still continue in the racing game, but only as a bookmaker." The Bennett sale would have been better could Barney Schreibcr have reached the city in time. He sent a man to Mr. Bennetts place about ten days ago and got reports on all the mares that were sold today. He picked out about a dozen that he wanted. He missed the train at Louisville this morning and then paid a hian forty dollars to bring him here from the Falls City in an automobile. He did not arrive until after three oclock and the sale was over. Mr. Schreibcr, however, secured a list of the names of the people who bought the mares. he wanted and will try to buy some of them privately tonight and tomorrow. Property of Elliott C.

AAitii the disposal this morning of seventy-one head for a total of 1907.sh,000, an average of .50, the Fasig-Tipton Companys eighth annual Kentucky sale of thoroughbred stallions, marcs and weanlings was brought to a close. The sale was originally scheduled for five days and 597 head were catalogued, but there were so many withdrawals that it was no task to bring the sale to close in three days. All told. 274 head were sold for 1,2S0, an average of 14.10. This is the lowest general average in years, but barring a few exceptional instances among the mares", and soberly considering the individuality, quality and age of the greater number of those offered, the values were not far out of line, though they were unquestionably not satisfactory to the consignors. AVith the yearlings, however, the sale of which is to be concluded tonight, it is somewhat different. There were among the 111 sold Monday and Tuesday nights a score or more that in the estimation of good judges, would have brought under normal conditions, an average of at least 50, yet the general average was 22.S0. At this mornings sale the highest price was 50 for Frantic, by Hindoo Francesca, consigned by Perry Belmont, who has closed out his Horse Haven Stud. She went to James E. Clay, of Paris. Ky. Only two others brought as much as 00 and Barney Schreibcr got both of them. He gave 50 for Toots Mook and 00 for Lady Chariot, both j being in the consignment of Engman and AVilkerson. The only stallions sold today were Lamplighter and Gallantry from Milton Youngs McGratliiana Stud. Lamplighter was bought for 00 by AV. R. Schrader. who lias a farm near Barney Schreibers AVoodlands Stud in St. Louis County, Mo., where the old horse will go. Gallantry was knocked down to a farmer named Calleghan for 0.
