FUTURE OF ELMENDORF FARM. Lexington, Ky., November 30v-Foliowing the report published here today that at least half of the Elinendorf Farm, the largest thoroughbred breeding establishment in the bluegrass region, and perhaps in the world, was to be devoted to the breeding of trotting liorses in the future, Charles H. ISerryman, manager of the farm, gave out the following statement tonight: "We have always had trotters. We are not going to extend that department of the farm at present that I know of." However, it is a known fact that the hundreds of thoroughbreds at Elinendorf are being sent to the various markets throughout the world, but what ultimate use will lie made of the farm is not known. The latest report is that eight carloads of thoroughbreds are to be shipped to France for sale there. This rumor Mr. Berryman declined to either cojiiirm or deny, but it is known that he is planning a trip to Europe in the near future and will remain there for some time.
