What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

6. Kendall, Montana, September 8, 1903 RACE HORSES AT SEA Precautions Are Taken in Shipping Thoroughbreds Across Ocean. Stalls Padded and Floors Covered with Peat Mong—A Clean Hill of Health Necemary for Each Horny. Few persons have an idea of the de- tails attendant upon the shipping of a thoroughbred from this country to England on one of the Atlantic Trans- port line steamers which handle most of this line of business. A thorough- bred is not handled like a dray horse. The race is as much entitled to com- fort and consideration as a first-class cabin passenger. His owner is so- licitous as to his welfare and is will- ing to pay well for it. The slightest jolt due to the rolling of the ship in a heavy sea might disable a thorough- bred so that his trip to the other side would all be in vain, therefore the greatest care must be taken that the quarters on board ship are provided with precautions against such acci- dents, says the New York Sun. The railroads have gradually met the demand for the traffic in race horses and now run whole trains of• specially constructed horse cars for the accommodation of thoroughbreds. According to the laws of the United States a horse brought over a railroad to a seaport town preparatory to an ocean voyage must have 18 hours of rest in a stable after leaving the ears before he is led up to the gang plank to his stall on shipboard. The New York Central road bass specially con- structed stable for this purpose .at Thirty-sixth street and the North river, -and- other trunk anecare Mark- ing preparations to proviSe similar quarters. These stables and the quar- ters for the horses aboard ship are un- der the direct jurisdiction of the Unit- ed States bureau of animal industry, of which the chief executive for the port of New York is Dr. William H. Rose. The inspectors employed by this bu- reau have many duties to perform. among them close scrutiny of each ship before horses are allowed to go Aboard. According to the require- ments of the law, each stall must be eight feet in length and two feet six inches in width. These are die accom- modations for ordinary horses, but the box stalls for thoroughbreds are generally ten by eight feet, with the. walls and roof thickly padded. The floor of one of these stalls is covered with six inches of peat moss, over which at night a heavy mattress of straw is thrown so that the racehorse can enjoy a comfortable sleep. But the same mattress is not used two nights in succession, for the law says that the racehorse must have a clean bed every night. The inspector; disinfect every- thIn a ship sails. including stalls, blankets, feed troughs. water pails, pitchforks and currycombs. A horne cannot go aboard until he haa received a clean bill of health from • n veterinary surgeon who repre?ents the bureau. vvNile the attendants who sail the animals must make atlietivit that they are all practical horsemen. Uncle Sam awl sees to it that the horses, whether they are poor beasts of burden or rich racers, receive proper rations. They get all the hay they want, the thorough- breds receiving extras in the shape Of bran mash mixed with oats, flax - seed meal and oatmeal, with corn in cold weather. Some of the box stalls are built on the main deck with powerful fans to produt e ventilation. The old plan of ng\ a horse aboard a steamer has been done away with, big gang- planks having been substituted. A thousand horses can now walk aboard in the same time it used to take to get an animal onto the deck by means of a sling. ,When 'one of the Atlantic Transport liners lands a load of horses on the other able they are put ,into the company's stables on the dock and cannot leave until more veterinaries have gotten in their work. Horses shipped to this country must pass through w.hat is known as \horse quarantine\ under the watchful eye of a veter- inaty attached to the department of agriculture. So much care is exer- cised that it is estimated that not more than one horse in a hundred dies from the effects of an ocean voyage. The attendants on these \horse ships\ say that they have never seen a thoroughbred suffer from seasickness. Th. Monument Was a Misfit. A stately granite shaft had been erected in the cemetery of a Massa- chusetts town in memory of a man whose life had been anything but praiseworthy. None the less the monument was one of the sights to be shown to a stranger, and one day a former resident of the town who had been away for many years re- turned and was taken to see the granite obelisk. He was no stranger to the faults and failings of the man whom it eulogized with its gilded in- scription, and after silent contempla- tion of the shaft on all sides he said: \Well if it's for goodness it's too WIZ, and if it's for badness it's not big enough.\—New Haven Chronicle, Enklmon Have No Religion.

England buys from the United States in a year more than $100,000,600 worth of wheat and flour, meats to the same amount and 69,000,000 bush- els of corn.—Indianapolis News. They Stand an Permanent and Pow•r.. fail Sermons on the Stabjeet of Religious. Faith. In New Work there is under const ruc- tion a cathedral that is to cost $10,000,- 000 or more. Its site is unsurpassed by any cathedral -site in Europe. The bishop. of New York says commerce builds to itself palsiees; the church must do the same. A danger exists in the extreme of material wealth, but a danger also exists in an extreme of material poverty, says Eugene M. Camp, in Woman's Home Companion. Young people's organizations are not few in number that have started out well, but have already written the final chapter of their history. The Young Men's Chri.stfau association is an- chored by its $30.000.000 accumulation. The cathedral of St. John the Divine, crowning the highest hill of America's metropolis, already preaches by its single unfinished arch eloquent and powerful sermons on the subject of faith in the Gospel ass solvent for hu- man ills, and during the coming years, finished or unfinished, it will proclaim Jesus Christ further and better—shall I claim so much?—than all other churehes in New York put together!
