GLAD ADAM WAS NOT SOLD. Teainer Thomas Welsh of the Newcastle Stable, who accompanied Andrew Miller and Frank C. Bishop to Lexington, Ky., from New York, on a tour ofi Inspection of Millstream Stud, says it would have been a calamity to have permitted Adam to be put up at auction during the Fasig-Tiptonsale at Lexington last month, for the horse would not have brought half what he is worth. Walsh credits James R. Kecne with being ready to pay 40,000 for Adam, and says that an offer of the same amount was cabled from the Cobham Stud in England, but notwithstanding these offers he rejoices that Adam was withdrawn from the eule. Mr. Welsh says that when Adam was purchased from M. Edmond Blanc two years ago there was a stipulation in the .sale that Adam was not to be resold to any Frenchman or any other person -who would send him back to France. "I have not uny interest iu him, but I wish had," concluded ilr. Welsh. ,
