CONCERNING THE BULL. The eoleotion of a bull (says the Melbourne ?' Leader") is porhnps the greatest probloro "the oare lul breeder is called upon to solve.

For many years past the perennial ques tion of improving the breed of horses, crops up in the Agricultural press only to be shelved again, and valuable reports and wise suggestions have unfortunately the one distinction of having been evolved only to be speedily forgotten, Horses do famously well in Australia, and the supply could be indefinitely extended were pro per means taken to'secure the right sort of animal. Hitherto chance has ruled and the land is full of weeds. Those who remember the horse flesh of 30 to 40 years ago, assert that no animals of that-type of those days, can now be met with since. For stamina, an.4 endu,r^n,pe they are un equalled.
