NEWS FROM J. K. L. ROSS NEW FARM Training Track Not Yet Completed Cudgel to Serve Fifteen Mares Next Spring. NEW YORK, X. Y., December 15. H. G. Bed-well arrived here today from Maryland and reported everything in good condition at Commander Ross new Maryland farm. "There are about fifty horses in the stalls," said Mr. Bedwell, "and I am pleased to say then is not a sick one among them. They are doing well and look fine. The mile track is not yet complete, and I dont think it will be ready for jxercising work until spring, though there are about one hundred men working on the place at the present cime. The barn is a wonderful structure and contains seventy-six stalls, all inclosed and fitted witli the most modern stable equipment. I think Maryland is a bully place for wintering horses, the weather leing so even and climatic conditions just is one would desire. We had only about two days rain during the fall." Speaking of Commander Ross intentions in breeding thoroughbreds, Mr. BcCwcll said that about twenty mares on the farm would be bred early next year, the two sires to be used being Cudgel and Wigstone. "Cudgel will have fifteen engagements aid Wigstone five," said Bedwell. "Wigstone is an rnglish stallion by Bnyardo Blue Tit, the latter ;onsidered one of the best matrons in England, her earlings of this year bringing over 0,000 at auction." The stallion Shannon, by Irish Lad Census, which came to .this country on the same ship that brought Sweet Briar, cannot be located by the registration department of the Jockey Club. The French registration papers have been received, but they came unaccompanied by any letter of information as to the destination of the stallion. It is presumed lie nas been consigned to some place designated by Mrs. H. B. Duryea. the details of which have not yet- been reported to headquarters. Mr. Algernon Daingerf ield and family will pay i visit to Kentucky this week to spend the holidays with Mr. Daingerfields mother.
