BY E. E. COUSSELL.. LONDON, England. April 16.— Every sfall on the Atlantic Transport Companys steamship Mississippi was filled when she left the London docks on Saturday. April 14. — She carried over sixty animals in addition to ten foxhounds and several greyhounds. The former were for Windsor T. White and W. Chanler. They were purchased from the famous Berkeley pack. The majority of the horses on board are of the hunter and polo pony class. There are, however, a number of thoroughbred hunters, several good jumpers, a few brood mares and the stallion Athdara, a son of Desmond. H. V. Colts consignment consisted of twenty-one head, of which eight are thoroughbreds, including: Blue Ray. bay mare, 191S. by Radames — Blue Stocking, by drey Leg. Vodka, brown mare. 1917. by Kroonstad — White Fort, by The White Knight. Miss Prepared, bay mare, 1918, by Prepared -La Rosa, by Bonarosa. Another in this consignment is Cascade, a beautiful five-year-old bay mare, which won the Championship Cup as the best polo pony at the Great London show in March, 1923. THOROUGHBRED HUNTERS. Among the thoroughbred hunters are several which are well known in Ireland as winners of good point to point events. In this connection Flip, a non-pedigree mare, had a big reputation. The animals are: St. Finbar. brown gelding, 3, by St. Vitus — Brown Bracken, by Ccnimon. Walshtown, bay gelding, 4, by Coligny — Clack, by Morganatic. Pearson, bay gelding. 4. by St. Dunstan — Fell Maiden, by Keswick. Marcub". bay gelding, 3, by Marten — Follicule, by Calllstrate. Silver Clow, bay mare. 7, by Bridge of Earn — Dim Light, by Walmsgate. The last named is a big upstanding mare, typical of some of her sires offspring. Mrs. F. Ambrose Clark is also importing a couple of thoroughbreds which have been running over jumps in England. It has not yet l:een announced whether they will be raced in the United States. Herminius has done best, for he was third in a two-mile steeplechase over the difficult Sandown Park course in February last. There were twelve runners. He carried 1" D pounds. Herminius is a bay gelding, five years old, by Prince Hermes, son of Cyllene. from a mare by Trenton, son of Musket. There should be no doubt as to his stamina. Mrs. Clarks other horse is Burton, a dark bay four-year-old gelding, by Burton, from Dru-cilla, which is related to six or seven winners, including Loch Eck, a brilliant handi-capper and good stayer in South Africa. In view of her consignment, for Mr. George Watson has numerous animals on board, the arrival of the Mississippi will create general interest among horsemen, hunting people and polo plavers. "
