I OPENING DAY OF LEXINGTON SALE MARKED BY LARGE ATTENDANCE AND GOOD DEMAND FOR DESIRABLE OFFERINGS - ; Lexington, Ky., December 1. The Kentucky Sales Company auction of thoroughbred horses today was well attended. Though the offerings, generally speaking, were of poor quality as to Individuality, the demand for anything desirable was good, but only the traders were willing to bid on the nondescripts, of which there were more than a few. The best looking horse offered was Irving H. Whoatcrofts imported stallion Brummel, a six-year-old sou of Desmond and .Beautys Daughter, by Gallinulc, but he was not sold. J. O. Keene bid ,5J0 for him and this was raised to 4,000 by Walter O. Farmer. There was no advance and the good looking English horse- -was knocked down at that figure. After the sale it was made known by Mr. Wheatcroft that Mr. Parmer was bidding for him and that he may decide to stand the hors; here this winter for public service. The highest price of the day was ,423 for H. T. Oxnards stallion, Golden Maxim, which was knocked down to Thomas Murphy, of Louisvilie. Price Ileadley paid ,050 for Lady Paramount, a iive-year-old daughter of Lady Languish, which was sold to 13. It. Bradley for 50. August Belmont paid 5,000 for Lady Languish by St. Simon Lady Reel when she was a yearling. Captain W. F. Presgraio of Baltimore, and Godfrey Preece, of New York, were liberal buyers.
