NOTASULGAS UNSOLD BROTHER. The brother to Notasulga which was not marketed with the Kdenwold yearlings at New York, is a slashing big chestnut son of The Commoner and Touch Not, and from the time he was foaled he was considered the pick of the lot. Unfortunately he was in no condition to make the trip from Tennessee, and he will be offered at private sale later. One of the best-looking yearlings of the recent sales was a big chestnut gelding by Toddington out of Luckless. lie went to Fred Durlew for 00 after some spirited bidding. He was bred at the Silver Brook Farm of W. S. 1anshawe in Shrewsbury, X. J., and right now would win a blue ribbon in the show ring. Of rich golden color, there is a long narrow white strip in his face, anil be has four white feet, the markings extending half way to the knees in front and to the hocks behind. A youngster of great size, he has trie shoulders and quarters of a three-year-old, and should he race to his looks ought to be one of the bargains of the year. ThoChicagoans, Miller Brothers, of the "Ranch 101" show, have bought quite a lot of horses at the sales. The showmen have not paid extravagant prices, but have led off some very likely looking youngsters at 5 and 00 each. It is hardly possible that such purchases can be other than prolitable for the buyers. The horses so bought, oven if they are not developed into race horses, lend a decided tone to "Ranch 101." They should make excellent show animals, and most of them are of a size that will dwarf the cow ponies usually seen in such exhibitions.
