In his more than -ISO-odd canes reposes one once owned by Horace Gi'ccley and was a combination gun-canu used w h e n Greeley "toured" the then wild and roaring west. But probably the prize possession of his whole collection is the cane ho bought in Mexico City in 1890, and which was responsible foi his one-half century hobby. Hutchison said ho bought it the day after attending a full-fight from a peddler and found it had been made from the defunct horns of "el toros" of the previous clay's battles. Practically every country in the world is represented in his odd collection, and seven of the -150 odd canes are in.'ide from the woojl near the birthplaces of Presidents James Buchanan, James Monroe, William McKinley.
