BARNEY SCHREIBER AT TORONTO. Genial Barney Schreiber, the Missouri tnrfaaan, breeder and owner of .lack Atkin ami many another fnaaona horse, i- la Toronto tor a day or two. He set a good example to other American breeder* by his steadfast refusal to accept the eclipse of racing in his country a- other than a temporary affair. While others were selling out as rapidly as they could. Barney kepi up his stud in the face of many discouragement, and he is today probably the larg est owner of thoroughbreds in America. Of horses about ready t.. race he has probably eighty, most ..f them two year obi-. A number of the produce of his farm have done well for Canadian owners, par ticuiariv in British Columbia. Perhaps the bkkJ notable winner of all that he sent to Canada was Heresy. i„. Kings Plate cham- l i «f lasl year. The little brown bulldog is a son of Hera, a mare that was with foal to Sain uheii hough I by the Messrs. IK men; for Riookdnle Farm. A picture .,! she head of Ilere-y. which ornaments the 1913 calendar of a local brewery, was staring Barney in the face when he went up to the cigar stand in his hotel yesterday, and the Missouri turfmans pleasure at tin- sight was almost as great as the day be saw Tack Atkin win the . hm Dominion Handicap at Iort Erie in record time. Mr. SiTireil.ers visit will probably result in some more of his slock passing into the bands of Canadian owners.— Toronto Globe.
