MORE OF KENTUCKY SALES COMPANYS SALE. Lexington, Ky., December 2.

Ma-comber, representing the eastern contingent. Ma-c-omber is a Boston business man. Of the large numbers disposed of by auctioneer George Bain, seventeen head were from the farm of John E. Madden, fourteen of them weanlings by Sir John Johnson, and they yielded a total of 2,000, the top price being for the weanling half-sister to Colin, which II. P. Ueadley, the president of the. Thoroughbred Horse Association, got for ,050. Mr. Headley, by this purchase, became the owner of the entire crop of 191G Star Shoot foals.
