The story of the exportation of horses
nnd mules from the port of New Or
leans Js told officially in the following
figures. The showing is the largest
ever made by any single seaport in the
history of the world. This is the state
ment: "From Oct 1. 1S99. to Nov. 30,
1001, the total valuation of horse and
mule cargoes was $13,483,052, exclu
sive of feed, which amounted to ?992,
C10, making a grand total of $14,470,
270. The total number of horses nnd
mules was 140,050, about equally di
vided." From this it would seem that
the average value of the horses and
mules shipped to South Africa and
elsewhere by the British government
is, to be exact. $90.27, and we ail know
thnt so small a sum of money has not
since Oct. 1, 1S99, been paid for any
very good horse. As has been said be
fore, remarks The Breeder's Gazette,
we can very well afford to lose all of
the small, inferior horses of the "war
rior" type that the foreigners will buy
from us provided they will -ship them
away out of this country bo that the
marcs among them may not in time
return to plague the breeders again.
No doubt many of the mares taken to
South Africa nnd used up in hard
marches and other work incidental to
warfare will do yeoman service in re
stocking the high veldt "n'ith the sort
of pony thnt thrives best on it, for any
kind of a large, full sized horse will
not do well on the thin land and bare
feed and peculiar climate, with its
constant chnnges of temperature, but
we have no use for such now. Once
upon a time perhaps we had; but, at
any rate, that time has passed, nnd It
Is splendid t- be able to relate that we
have got rid of so many of these horses
for so much money nnd in such an nd
mirable way. It is an ill wind that
blows nobody .good.

having a safe driving horse will do all
in his power to prevent that horse from
pver getting beyond control. If the
horse gets to run nwny once, he is- lia
ble to be an unsafe nninml ever after

position nnd good sense of horses
that more of them nre not ruined by
carelessness. Unsafe harness, neglect
to fasten properly, careless or reckless
driving, constant nagging until the
horse Is nervous nnd the infliction of
pain in bitting or reining nre common
with vounc horses being broken to

The horse market is in good shape.
It was put to n severe test a short
time ago In New York when the Fasig
Tipton company offered at auction
nearly COO horses of all sorts and con
ditions. The prices paid vnrled from
$30 to upward of SIQ.OOO, and for ev
erything of form and quality there
was a ready bidder at more money
than has been paid for similar stock
since 1S93. General B. F. Tracy ex
posed most of his stud for sale. Three
years ago his stallion Advertiser was
sold In the same ring for less than $2,

In the feed yard?"
W. A. Henry answers ns follows;
"Our correspondent will find that if he
gives his steers a ration consisting of
a quarter or third brau by weight and
the remainder corn Le will materially
uuiiiuve iue quality pr ins feed supply
to the fattening steers. Bran furnishes
a large amount of mineral matter, such
ns phosphoric acid and potash. It also
supplies nitrogen. It has a generally
uv.-iium.-mi euect on me digestive tract
of ruminating animals nnd will cause
the nteer to more fully utilize the corn
which Is fed him. The manure result
ing from bran is much richer thnn thot
mnde through corn feeding, nnd where

STORY OF THE ANGORA.
intcre-tln Account of Their IntrSK
dnctlon Into THU Conntrj.
When It is said that tho mohair In
dustry is looking up In this country, It
ls equlvalent to saying that the Angora
looking up. Now, the
j Angora goat history in the Lnlted
I states is rather nn Interesting one. It
! -nK iiurlnc the administration of Pres
ident Tolk thnt it began. The sultan of
Turkey had to do with the introduction
of the Angora goat Into this country.
He requested President Poll: to recom
mend some one who would experiment
with cotton culture in Turkey, nnd
President Polk suggested Dr. .lames B.
Davis of Columbia, S. C. Dr. Davis
accordingly was invited to Turkey by
the sultan and went there, with the re
sult that his cotton experiments so
pleased the sultan that when he re
turned to America he brought with
him nlnp Angora goats, the gift to him
of the sulfan.
These goats were frequently exhibit
ed at fairs and attracted much atten
tion. It wan thought at the time that
they were the Cashmere breed, from
the fiber of which tlie costly cashmere
shawls ure made. This mistake proved
to be uufortunate, for everything that
was known about the Cashmeres was
said for these goats, with the final re
sult that there M-as such disappoint
ment that it gave n serious setback to
tlie Angora goat industry nt its very
outset. An Angora gout can no more
serve tlie purposes of 11 Cnslnnere than
the beef breeds of cnttle can serve the
purposes of the finest Jersey stock.
Vet, all the same, the Angora is n very
vninoble animal, and this early disap
pointment in the sultan's gift had a
tendency to blind people for a long
time to the fact.
In lS&i the Davis flock of goats,
consisting of eve:i does nnd .two
bucks, wris purchased by Colonel Rich
ard Peters of Atlanta, Gn., with tlie
exception of one owned by Colonel
Wade Hampton of South Cnrollna and
one by Mr. Davenport of Virginia and
one by Mr. Osborne of Now York. Lat
er Colonel Peters imported others, and,
although they did not prove satisfacto
ry, he Is nevertheless regarded ns tlie
real founder of the Angora gout indus
try in this country.
His first importation was followed
by others up to ns late as 1S7C. when
tlie sultan became alarmed at what lie
fancied was the development of an In
dustry which threatened the same line
in Turkey. In 1S7C he issued nn edict
absolutely prohibiting the exportation
of Angoras, and this edict is still in
force. Notwithstanding the edict Dr.
W. C. Bailey of San Jose, Cal.. went
to Asia Minor in 1901 aud succeeded in
shipping four goats, which finally nr
rived at their uew home in C'ulifornin.
From these importations, supple
mented by a fow goats brought from
South Africa, have come nl! the herds
thnt now are found In nearly every
state in the Union. At tho close of the
civil war about all tlie go ts of the
Angora breed that remained in the
country were in the sum h western
stutes and territories, principally in
Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Cat -fornia.
Within the last few venrs they
have gone into Oregon in hi ire mun.
