THE NATURAL HOME.
As brother Merry, of the Inland
Empire says, "This is the natural
home of the horse," hence our horse
men in this part of Oregon cannot toko
to much pains in tin breeding of this
Some people are anxious to raise
good horse, but seem to think that if
they get a line brood maie that about
all that is necessaiy is to breed her to
some horse, no matter whether the
horse be a cayuse, old or young, blind
or otherwise, a good colt is sure to be
the result A horse breeder can make
no worse mistake than this. First
purchase the brst brood mare that you
can get, then select the best horse in
the country to breed to no matter if
it does cost ten or -twenty-five dollars
more the colt will sell for more than
the difference. If you want a fast
horse, b eed to a fast horse, for all
sporting men know that a racer cannot
come from a Norman or some of these
heavy, slow horses, no more than a
"spaniel dog" can come from a "snail
ing cur." But if no pains are taken to
secure a horse that will improve your
stock, it will naturally degenerate and
soon run out. This has been fully de
monstrated on this coast, in the Indian
pony. A tribe of Indians in Nevada,
or California, were known not to have
a certain kind of horse until the whites
came to California and some of their
horf-es were captured by the Indians,
and not until a few months ago were
these hordes seen again, when it
was noticed that the once larirc and
well bred American horses had so
diminished in breeding that they were
simply Indian ponies; next week we
will give a few remarks on the breed
ing of the horse.

A Good Horse.
A friend of mine is employed on a
farm near Toronto, Ontario, where a
horse belonging to the wife of the far
mer is never required to work, but is
allowed to live the life of a gentleman,
for the following reason: Some years
ago the lady above mentioned fell oil
a plank bridge into a stream where the
water was deep. The horse, which
was feeding in a field close by, ran to
the spot., and held the lady up with his
teeth till help arrived, thus probably
saving her life. Was this reason or
