Mr J. F. Buchanan, of Kinbeh, Little tliver, is one of the riKst prominent horse jrflcderg and sportsmen of New Zealand, and ho lollowing account of his biood flock sul<

t Chri-tciiuruh just Tbur."day is of inieref a showing the value of hia Kinloeh-bn (

tarlings :—

" That ihsre is still a rnadtet for thorough > hro • jiarlings, though it may be only a iimited on- at the present time in Canterbury, wa- demonstrated when the Kinloch lots camo under the hammer at W. Hay ward and Co's stables (says the " Press." Mr F. Pyne, of Pyne and Co., Chtistohurch, officiated as auctioneer. It has been the experience of stjdmasters all too often to receive anything but a fair return for their young thoroughbreds, and this yeir two southern breeders have decided to send their youngsters to the autumn sales in Australia, and as a result they were nnrepresented for the first time for many years at the ppring sales in Canterbury, and it was owing to the disorganisation of the ferry service nero« Cook Strait that the Waikanae yearlings wers not brought south as intended. Thest happenings left the market rather bare in number, and the successes of the progeny oi Martian already this season, and of the progeny of his half brother Boniform, at th« raeolirg in progress at Bicoarton contributed in no small measure to the satisfactory re, suits of the sale. There were several wouldbe purchasers, and Canterbury buyers me 1 with some opposition from northern visitors and though only three of the lots were purchased for the north, and these were the three iowest'priced onep, still a coupe o: North Island owners, who went away empty handed, were bidding steadily for higher priced lots. Mr Kirkdale, of Wellington secured the full sister of Immer, bis con sistent and useful daughter of Martian anc Everlasting, for 75 guineas, and seemed sur prised at the small sum he had to pay fo: her. She ia a sound-legged filly, of mediun size, and there is no reason why she ehoulc not be every bit as good as Immer at th< the sarx!9 age. Mr Hugo Friedlander got i shapely, thick set brown colt by Martial from Fireside by Eoyal Artillery from Fin Queen. The youngster is a September foal and started at 100 guineas and went oi steadily to 300 guineas, and might hay. made more had he been more heavil; engaged. A straight-out bid of 209 guinea made by J. Bae on account of Mr F. Hall, o Gisborne, secured the lengthy full-sister ti Soldiers' Chorus, Tannhauser and Cberru bini, who was expected to make more money and probably would have done but for i rather pronounced twist in one of her fori legs, which rcay not interfere with her raoini career. Neva has contributed a number o wfnning representatives to the Stud Book Bunyan, Danube, Arnbrosian, Onega, am Martel being notable performers. The bi| chestnut colt purchased by Mr A. W. Euiher ford, jun., for 260 guineas, by importei Downshire, sire of Pownham, who is fror) the same family, has possibilities. Th Martian—Mary of Argyle colt, foaled oi August 20th, and therefore nearly fifteei months old, is of fair size and looked tn< pick of the basket. It was some tim before a bid was made for him, an , then someone had the temerity to star him at 50 guineas, when another cbippei in with 100 guineas, and be went t 200 guineas almost at once, and thei steadily along to 600 guinea?, when ther was a pause, and in tens be went up to 70' guineas, then to 750 guineas and 77* guineas. At 800 guineas all wore silent bu Mr Friedlander, who got a very nioe colt fo ■which he paid what must be considered i fair price for the seller. The next lot, i brown filly by Martian from Lovelorn, b; Melton from Hebrew Maid, evidently a gooi doer, went steadily up in bids from 10i guine s to 300 guineas, at which price M D, G. Greenwood secured her Th Martian—Hebrew Maid filly, half-sister ti Lovelorn and full sister to Thrax, thougl apparently not doing well, looked a bargaii at 65 guinea?, at which price she went to M v. Tricklebank, of Waipukurau, Hawke' Bay. The next lot, a bay son of Martial from Gipsy Girl, by Gipsy Grand fron Marion, looked somewhat on the leg, and a no one would stait him at 100 guineas wb passed in. A black colt by Treadmill fron Ingleneuk, a sister to Fireiron, whom man: liked the appearance of, was bought by M A. W. Kutherford, junr,, for 200 guineas and he should turn out useful, The ligh lots made a good average of 275 guineas. The following are details of the sale :— On account of Mr J. F.
