The yearling half-brother to Minto II., by Grey Fox Miss Reynolds, which was imported at the side I of his dam by Col. E. R. Bradley, died this I week at Idle Hour Farm as the result of sicl:-j ness contracted during the long voyage from England in December and January. The colt was insured. Pat Dunne, for John B. Gorham. has sold to J. Howard Lewis the colt by Horron that is to be trained for crocs country purposes. B. B. Jones is here from Washington to spend a few days with John E. Madden at Hamburg Place. E. F. Simms, who has been at Xalapa Farm several days, left today for New York. There were two foals at Short Grass Stud Friday night. Comsora dropped a bay colt, by North Star HI., and Florence L. has a chestnut filly, by Glen R. The latter is the property of Jcs. Morrone of New York. The catalogues for Short Grass Stud Farm sale are off the press and being mailed out to those who have listed their requests for them. There is, just now, a strong demand for thoroughbred mares, especially for young English mares such as are several of these brought over last summer by Emil Herz, and for mares in foal or with foals at foot. The consensus of opinion is that they will sell well.
