Owners of pure-bred stallions have
been pleased to comply with the Wis-
consin law as regards posters, having
nothing to hide and everything to gain
by publicity; otherB have been lax in
this respect or have pleaded Ignorance
as an excuse, when taken to task for
their negligence. This condition of
affairs will be apt to continue to a
greater or less degree If, as is now the
case in many districts, owners of
mares aid and abet the owners of stal-
lions in their evasion of the law and
11I99 are iasliffereal as to the breeding
ul the stallions they patronize, pro-
vided the service fee Is kept sufficient-
ly low. A cheap service fee is the
least consideration in breeding horses.
The cheap fee means a cheap selling
offspring. It Is the proverbial "penny
wise, pound foolish" policy and It is
high time that our farmers learn that
It Is to their best interest to make
sure that the stallion they patronize is
pure-bred, sound, a fine individual and
properly prepotent and in that case
the service fee will be of little mo-
ment and will be more than paid back
when tho time comes to sell the colt.
If a groceryman must sell oleomar-
arine be should at least ticket it as
such and not advertise it as pure,
creamery butter. In exactly the same
way it Is but right that the man who
offers a counterfeit, grade, or scrub
stallion for public service should ad-
vertise its true breeding and this is
done when, according to law, the li-
cense certificate is printed and posted
up In conspicuous plaees wherever the
horse is used.
Relative to the stallion situation the
following facts will be of interest to
The secretary of the stallion regis-
tration board of Minnesota, Prof. An-
drew Boss, says: "The law requiring
the enrollment and licensing of stall-
ions was passed on April 25, 1907. The
board was organized in May, and dur-
ing the first year of its existence has
licensed 2,959 horses. Of these 1,110,
or 37.5 per cent., are purebred; 1,849,
or G2.5 per cent., are grades; 96 have
been refused license 01 account o." un-
soundnesses which are recorded as
transmissible and would be likely to
a!Tect the get of these stallions. It is
estimated that 25 to 30 stallion owners
have been advised by local veterin-
arians that their horses could not pass
examination and application has not
been sent in for them. In all proba-
bility 125 unsound horses have been
kept from service In the state this
year. The Percheron breed of horses
leads all others both in grades and
pure-breds, with standard-bred trot-
ters second and Belgians third in the
"In some sections of the state there
Is slight opposition to the law, due
largely to local prejudice, or misrepre-
sentation on the part of some preju-
diced stallion owner, or other inter-
ested party. As a whole, the la 7 is
meeting with the approval of tne horse
breeders of the state. This is evi-
denced both by the large number of
horses registered, and by the co-re-
spondence uecessary in securing li-
censes. With only a few exceptions,
the law la being obeyed strictly, some
counties reporting only one or two
horses still unlicensed. Some misun-
derstanding still exists regarding Sec-
tions 5 and 7 of the law relative to
posters. The law requires a poster
containing copy of the license certi-
ficate on the door of every stable at
which the horse is stood for public
service. In many places these par-
ticular sections of the law are not
being observed simply became tho
owners of stallions do not know that
It Is necessary. Where informed that
this is required, there is little diffi-
culty lit securing the posting of the
In Pennsylvania, where the stallion
law has been in effect for one season,
1,820 stallions have been licensed, of
which 604, or 38.2 per c:nt., are pure-
bred and 1,216, or 66.8 per cent., are
grades and mongrels.
In New Jersey the legislature last
winter (1907-08) passed a stallion law
based upon that of Wisconsin, but hav-
ing the following important differ-
ences: The work of stallion enroll-
ment Is to be done by a stallion regis-
tration board, consisting of the ani'xal
husbandman of the State Experiment
station, who shall be secretary and
executive officer; a graduate veterin-
arian and a prominent breeder of live
stock. "It shall be the duty of the
board to examine personally each
stallion or jack and determine to the
best of their knowledge and belief
whether Bald stallion or jack is free
from infectious, contagious or trans-
missable diseases or unsoundness and
their findings shall be final." The
board is authorized in case of emer-
gency to name a committee in each
county, consisting of a graduate veter-
inarian and a practical horseman who
shall examine the various stallions or
Jacks in the said county as to sound-
ness. The fee for enrollment is $5
and $2 shall be paid annually for the
renewal of pedigree certificate and
service license. Stallions shall be ex-
amined every year until '°n years of
age, and after the first examination
shall be exempt, if ten years of age
or over. The act went into effect
September 1, 1908.
The legislature of New Jersey also
enacted a unique and important bill
which now is in force and provides
for the appointment of a live stock
commission by the governor, consist-
ing of the director of the state ex-
periment station and the master of the
state grange, ex-offlcio; the animal
husbandman of tho Btate experiment
station, who rhall be secretary and ex-
ecutive officer of the commission; a
graduate veterinarian anj a promin-
ent breeder of live stock. "It Bhall be
the duty of this commission: First, to
purchase aud maintain stallions of
draft and coach type for distribution
and UBe in the several counties of the
Btate, wherever breeders' associations
have been duly organized and which
provide dams for breeding, which
shall conform to the standards anil
rules established by the commission;
second, to aid In the selection and
distribution of breeding sires and
dams of other classes of live stock;
and third, to constitute a stallion ex-
amining board." The sum of $20,000
is appropriated to the commission for
the current year, and thereafter
$5,000 annually for the purpose of
carrying out the provision of the act.

and Anally had to un-
dergo an operation.
I did not rally well,
and began to suffer
smothering spells and
dropsy. My left side
was badly swollen
and the action of the
kidneys much disor-
dered. My doctors
said I would have to be tapped, but I
began using Doan's Kidney Pills In-
stead, and the swelling subsided and
the kidneys began to act properly.
Now my health is fine." (Statement
