UNUSUAL EPISODE IN A COLTS LIFE. San Francisco. Cal.. December 1. "Stolen from the barn in which lie was quartered after being hrouglit from the farm, missing for four days, and then returned just in time to lie virtually given away," this is the way in which an episode in the career of the All Green Victoria yearling bought by Frank Farrar last week will read if ever that colt establishes anything like a career. The Antrim Stock Farm yearlings were hrouglit in from the farm about ten days ago and were stabled, in a barn out near the Santa Fe station until sale day. The next morning the discovery was made that the All Green colt was missing and nothing further was heard of him until Monday. Then a young chap went to the barn and asked if he would be exempt from prosecution in the event he should bring back the colt. He evidently had found the yearling a "white elephant" on his hands, and on being guaranteed Immunity from prosecution, returned the colt, which was sold to Farrar for 00.
