Camel was ■ dark brown horse, foaled in 1382, • and is described in that most valuable addition to I turf literature.

I am eon in. ed. i-. as geed as the beat, l-otii as to Orat-rate race becaea and iaftaeattal sins, and it does seem incredible that iu- Haw Rhoaid so suffer from neglect. That this Mae is in.; nsjarectated as it ■hoarid be is evidenced from the reel that it is only threanh Weather Witch here in this eountiy and through Stoc kwells daush-ter Lady Saajhle abroad that the Maiden flame is k«pl alive and from now ea it would appear that tin- Maiden by Sir Pater bianeh of the No. 24 family «in be known only to the ehreaUder. I lie east two really arertb While horses in nil the liiMory of the N . L." family are Comus and Yonn;. Methearae The Mateheai line ones its very eziatence to the former and the Maid of Maahaaa family its success to Younc Melbourne. The name of North Lineoln. of course, figures bi the make-up of li..val Hanii.fon and His Bighaeaa; King Hal in the pedisre.- of Oeateatar; Chlaa once led the winning sirea ef l-ranc- but was ■eaaethlag of :i failure after his bnportation here. The aaase powerful line of Slane. 1S.1.". has eeased to ejst: nothing much is heard theee days ,,f the activities of Flying Kos s-,n Oourenaat; the Derby winner Sefton was a failure as a sire: Goata name in Frame is not iiiueh spoken: Lilyvale. I know, area the S dney tup in Australia, and Chasseur has five victories to his credit in this c.untry ihis season, and freas this it aaaaM appear that the day of the No. •_." I.orse is done; but. no. there is this season that really remarkable Irish-bred filly Pharuiaeie to bo reckoned with, for Phnrmaoic is judged to he. by the official Knglish hniidicapper. to be within ,-i few pounds of sii.-h flyers as Monareh and Leigbtoa. In relation to the rather sketchy success of members of the No. o.-, unity it may not be out of place to dire.-; attention to the fact that the sU. -• ess. when it does come, of th.se few members is indisputably due to a comingling of the strains of Herod. Mat. hem and Eclipse. The No. ur horse and life saver for the Mateheni liae t omus. lsoH. was. of course, ef Matchem de-s, ent and was from the Herod mare Houghton Las-, by Sir Peter. Young Melbournes dam Clarissa was a daughter of Pantaloon; Herod from an unminicl daughter of Qleaene. Herod! Is it any wonder then that ihis Matchem to double Herod horse should have had each a tremendous influence on the Maid Of Masham family. The No. ."i filly Phurniacie, too. is a daughter of the Kclipse sire Charles UMal- lejr, by Ptcocrlethm, by the Bered, laiawfnrd from If. ! .. by Marco, Matchem. The i-ady response of the otherwise irresponsive No. 29 mares ,i the blending of the blood plan of mating is but additional proof thai this is the surest plan by which the best of the ln.rs. s may be bred.
