By the Light of the Moon ECCLESTON, Md., May 9.— It might have been merely coincidence, but Janon Fisher, Jr., master of The Caves, near here, noting a full moon that particular evening, declared, "Those four overdue mares will foal tonight." And foal they did, on the full moon. Fisher avers that it is not the first time mares overdue have foaled on the full moon. Two of the matrons were two weeks overdue, while the others were about four weeks past their time. The mares that foaled that night were Idyll, who foaled a bay filly, by Blue Larkspur; Valiantly, who delivered a chestnut colt, by Busy Wire; Blazing Ember, who dropped a chestnut colt, by Swashbuckler, and Pumice Stone, who contributed a bay filly, by Swashbuckler.
