. MILTON YOUNG STILL OWNS MANY HORSES. Lexington. Ky., November 28. When Scarf Pin, the fourteen-year-old daughter of Springbok and Emerald, was knocked down to the bid of Colonel Milton Young for 25 at the Corrlgan dispersal sale Wednesday morning, there was general surprise among the horsemen at the ringside. "Back in the game so soon?" shouted some. "I knew he couldnt stay out of It long," said a voice. "Are you going to take her to the Argentine Republic." queried another, and similar inquiries were fired at the Master of McGrathlana in a good-natured vein until auctioneer Easton rapped his hammer sharply upon the box to call attention to another horse In the ring. " Thats just a necktie adornment that Ive picked up at a bargain." answered Colonel Young. "I guess I might as well tell you now as at anv other time that this isnt the only thoroughbred I own. I bought back forty-seven of those that went through my sale. Including the stallion. Wools-thorpe. because I had an opportunity to pick them up cheaply, and I have rented a barn and a part of the farm that I sold to Messrs. Thomasson and Coons on the Tates Creek Pike, where I will keep them for the present. What I shall eventually do with them, I do not know; but I am certain that 1 will not take any of them to the Argentine Republic. "I expect to leave for Buenos Ayres about January 1, aud will remain there three or four months, maybe longer. Investigating conditions. If I conclude to locate there, and I think I will. I shall buy a farm and then go to England and spend another six months selecting stallions and mares for my stud in the new place. The mares that I have picked up since the sale are worth much more than they were knocked down for and I can affoTd to hold them as an investment."

It will be noted that twenty-six of the thirty-six mares were bred to Cesarion, and it is reasonable to presume that the majority of them are in foal and will produce living colts or fillies. Likewise six of the eleven weanlings are by him. The get of Cesarion have been doing things and they are in demand. The forty-eight head did not cost Colonel Young a great deal more than 0,000 and it is next to a cinch that he will get that back with interest during the coming two years and still have the mares left if he should choose to keep them.
