The uses and wastes of war n the destruction ot'over oue hundred thousand horses a year, suoeradded to the usual demauds for domestic pur- ooses, have made such a drain upon ;he horse stock of the country that ;here are unmistakable symptoms of a lotse fimioe close at hand. When the country was full of supernumeraiy three, four years dram upon horses fit for the field was readily supplied: now the available market stock is used up, the colts are ill put upon the active list, and the slow process of breeding does not fill the vast prospective needs of the country. The first years of the war used up a bostof pig headed, straight-shouldered, wooden-legged brutes, which were then well out of the way; but the af ter demands took in better blood and breeding, and with them quite a num- ber of good mares, which is a serious drain upon our productive resources. Every farmer who has a good mare sbonld now look upon her as a treasure, and hold her eapabilitiSs of production at a high eatimate. t Do not tool away the golden opportunity by breeding Trdm every penffy-roj'al stallion that liad at a low pjuce, but in for a colt that" wiiramourjt ,.to some- thing.
