PURCHASES MARYLAND FARM Charles Seglin, of New York, Acquires Arthur Property Nom de Course Linton Farm. BALTIMORE, Md., Jan. 29. George M. Seglin, of New York, who races in the nom de course of Linton Farm, is one of the latest sportsmen to join the ranks of Maryland breeders. He purchased the property of James Arthur, one of this states veteran breeders, a few weeks ago. Of late years the Arthur fortune declined and "Uncle Jim," as he is known to racegoers has been forced to sell his stock. After disposing of his breeding farm, where he raised and trained such good thoroughbreds as "Bolster, Freezy Sneezy and Bondage, "Uncle Jim" departed for Florida. The news that Seglin has joined Maryland breeders is welcomed. It means the adding of another link to the chain of studs owned by Robert J. Walden, Sylvester W. Labrot, H. Guy Bedwell, J. W. Y. Martin, Dr. Walter Wicks, Dr. J. Fred Adams, Leslie E. Keiffer, M. Nelson Bond, Mrs. Charles Minot Amory, Howard Bruce, Ral Parr, Mrs. Helen Roskob, Strathcona Farm and Branncastle Farm. Among the Linton Farms horses this year were Jack Pulpit, two-year-old chestnut son of Prince of Bourbon and Bending; Linton Nell, two-year-old chestnut daughter of Pennant and Olive Wood; Porgie, two-year-old chestnut son of Prince of Bourbon and June Flower; Post Kid, two-year-old bay son of Jhilhowee and Anne;, and Vagaries, two- year-old brown daughter of Chilhowee and Sarah Day. It is Seglins plan to overhaul his property, erecting new barns, paddocks and outbuildings. When completed the farm will rank with the best in the state.
