MRS. LIVINGSTONS CANADIAN YEARLINGS. Toronto, Out., Dccemlicr 1. Contrary to her custom of lie past two years, Mrs. L. A. Livingston has decided not to disjiose of her Province-bred thoroughbred yearlings, raised at Pontiac Farm, Cobour- tliis season. They will lie raced on the Canadian tracks next summer in her own colors, and probably during the season some of the number may lie disKised of to Canadians, as they will be eligible to the Kings Plate of 1!15. Edward Feakes. ion or Matt Feakes. the Livingston stables regular trainer, has been at Pontiac Farm for several weeks, breaking the youngsters. They are a line-looking lot and all have been named. There are ten in the string, seven of the number being by Stanhope II. ami three by Rowling Rrook. Following is the list: Akeldama. b. c, by Stanhope II. Athleen; a brother to Auster. Shrovetide, b. e, bv Stanhope II. Scotch Mist. Arbite, b. c. by Stanhope II. Adeline M. Fair Montague, b. e. by Stanhope II. Meadowley; brother to Mausolus andhalf-brother to Marybud. Garish Sun, b. c. by Stanhope II. Ganymede; half-brother to Floras Dial. Tartarean, b. c. bv Stanhope II. Tarletan. Ringbolt, b. c, by Rowling Rrook Rings. Stagger, b. f, bv Rowling Drook Virginia Reel. Taps, b. f, by Stanhope II. Present Arms. Vashni, b. f. by Rowling Rrook Vestal; sister to Cobourg Relle. This year the foals again number tea. Six of them are colts and four fillies. Five of the lot are the get of Rowling Rrook and five are by Stanhope II. Fair Montague is the biggest of the yearling colts aiid one of the most promising of the lot. Tartarean is also a a good-looking youngster, well put together witli fine lione and clean legs. Due to an accident from falling on the ice last winter, Vashni is a cripple and will not lie broken. The good broodmare Meadowley died recently of old age and left a lilly foal, now seven months old. Athleen, the dam of Akeldama and Auster, lias gone blind from the same cause. That tlie rumors which have been sent broadcast to the effect that Mrs. Livingston Intended disposing of Pontine Farm, are without foundation, are evidenced by the fact that during this fall she has had a fine new barn erected, and several smaller buildings added to the plant. Unfortunately, however, a new railroad has been run through the Livingston farm so closely adjoining the race track, that it is now practically useless for the breaking or working of the young horses.
