The horses are scheduled to be sold at 11 oclock a. m., and as soon as they are disposed of the farm will be offered, following which the vast amount of equipment every thing pertaining to a first-class establishment will be sold. The catalog of the horses has come from the press and shows thirty-eight head, twenty-six of which are mares, ten yearlings, the stallion Short Grass, and one two-year-old. It is a sale that should attract the attention of all in the market, for the mares were selected with great care.
