sanity. The County Judge is off to Tilla

vices could be dispensed with. His insanity
is of a religious kind : he came into town
Ringing hymns and was no sooner out of the
hack than he began preaching on the street.
One part of his ceremony was to baptise
himself, which he did most thoroughly, first
by throwing water in the air and letting it
fall all over him, but that not being suffi
cient, he next put his head under the pump
and sent a Rtream down his back, then down
his breast, then down one boot-leg and then
down the other ; finally he began to strip
himself (at Burbank's pump) but some men
interfered <ind took him away. He was
placed in the hand*» of the Sheriff and 1°°*'

naked and preached and prayed to his hearts

have been laughable, if his case was not so

Hambletonian Mambrino is a beautiful dark
bay or brown, 15 hands, 2| inches high and
weighs over 1,100 pounds. He is unsurpassed
for style and beauty; long-bodied, with a
rangy neck and blood-like head. He is hea
vy muscled, and as for ieet and legs no horse
can excel him.
Of bis prepotency as a sire there can be no
doubt. All his colts have the impress of his
hi Ji form and superb courage, and when plac
ed nn the market have, so far, commanded (at
the same ages) as high a price as the get of
any hoise in the North Pacific.
During the lagt year his get was awarded
many premiums and was the winner of the
three-year-old three-in-ilve races at Vancouver
and the State Fair, defeating in both races the
finest field of three-year-olds that ever came
together in the Northwest.

1st dam Olean, by Border Chief.

Border Chief, sire of Olean, was by old Mam
brino Chief, 1st dam bv Highlander, 2nd dam
by Glencoe, 3rd dam by Post Boy, son of Hen
ry that ran with Eclipse.
Thus it will t>e seen that Hambletonian
Mambrino has eight Messenger crosses and
unites the two greatest strains of American
tre tting blood—those of Rvsdyk’s Hambleton
ian and Mambrino Chief, being a lineal de
scendant of imp. Messenger o i each side of the
house To this, the very quintessence of Amer
ican trotting blood, he unites the rich racing
strains of Glencoe, Wagner, Chorister and Post
Boy, famous in the annuals of the running
turl on both sides of the Atlantic. He also
has the Bashaw blood, through Long Island
Black Hawk, the first horse that ever trotted
below 2 :40 to a road wagon.
