One of the Most Strongly Fortified of the liar's Outpoxtn — How It Came Into Hnstila'a Pmhp^loii-Ab Illustration of KnnNian Diplomacy. [Special Correspondence.] Ran Francisco, March 12.— The im portance of Vladivostok to Russia in the present emergency, said a returning traveler from the orient, cannot be overestimated, particularly if Port Ar thur should be captured or invested by the Japanese, a thing not altogether impossible or improbable. In that event Vladivostok would be the only base ami refuge for Uussian war ves sels in the far east. The story of how Vladivostok came to In' Russian at all is interesting and serves as an admirable illustration of Uussian diplomatic methods in the ori ent In the year 1880 China was in vaded by the French and English bent on teaching "the son of heaven" a sal atary lesson on the advisability of maintaining the rights granted by' pre vious treaties.

6 BRBEDBRS Much has been written about the high class draft stallion, while the im portance of the high class mare has been overlooked in exploiting the equine breeding industry, says Drover's Jour nal. While "like begets like or likeness of some ancestor," the high grade mare becomes a coequal factor in the im provement of the horse stock of the country. When the industry was pros trated and prices had declined below the level of profitable production farm ers were excusable in sacrificing their best mares, but with the return of prosperous times there is no investment that pays better than a good draft mare on the farm. The farmer must needs employ teams in cultivating his farm, and a span of good draft mares make ideal workers. As a role mares are freer workers, truer pullers and less liable to ailments than geldings and are qualified to per form the double function of farm serv ice and raising a foal every year. A high grade draft mare mated to a good BtaUion will produce a foal...
