The fallowing recipe is scut us by A.
Tait, of Howard county, Kansas. He
thinks it is the best he has ever used,
and it is se simple that any one may
easily try the experiment:
Take about half a gallon of oil, and
put in a shallow pan or basin, and dip
the harness in, one pioco or raoro at a
time; then strip the oil ofT of the strap
with your fingers, Jetting it run back
into the basiu; hang up to dry; repeat
the dipping of the harness two or three
times until it will take no more oil. A
little lamp black added helps the looks
very much. After the oiling take a rag
and rub off the harnoss, and you will find
the hardest leither and tbo stiffest lug
