IN PRAISE OF THE HORSE.
Its Supreme Virtue an Exquisite Delicacy
H. C. Merwin in Country Life in
Even if we admit that most horses
are fools and cowards, inasmuch as
they are afraid of things which
more intelligent animals, such as
the dog, perceive to be barmless,
yet it is also true that many horses
have a heroic capacity for conquer
ing or putting aside their fears.
Who has not seen a high bred steed,
urged by his rider or driver, march
straight as an arrow up or past
some object so terrifying that it
made the sw'eat run from him in
streams? On the race track, horses
painfully contend for victory out of
their own native courage and am
bition-not under punishment, for
as a rule, the courageous horse will
"stop," or "shut up," as the tech
mical phrase is, whipped or spurred
at the finish of a race. In Cali
fornia some years ago, a running
horse broke one of the bones in a
foreleg near the close of a heat, per
haps seventy yards from the wire.
He faltered for a moment and then
recovered himself by a mighty ef
fort, struggled on and won the heat,
practically om three legs.
The horse is a logical, and there
fore a teachable animal. Once con
vince him that a locomotive or any
ether object of terror is not really
dangerous, and he will never shy
at it again. Every year accidents
occur because the harness breaks or
the vehicle upsets, and the horse
runs away. But such accidents are
unnecessary. Any horse can, with
a little pain, be taught to hold back
a carriage by his hind quarters as
well as by the breeching. To have
wheels come off, -and straps and
other things hitting his legs, should
be part of a colt's education.
But the supreme virtue of the
horse is neither logic, nor memory,
nor curiosity, it is an exquisite deli
cacy of perception. This is what
distinguishes the horse from a mule
or an ox, and this is what makes
him interesting to study, and diffi
cult to understand. His nervous
organization is so highly developed
that it will respond to the ver y
slightest call upon it. You 'do not
have to give him a kick; he will
take a hint, and the least hint will
The horse is a mindreader. He
knows what you are; he divines all
the ins and outs of your character,
so far as they affect him;.and if you
have a weakness he will bring it to
the surface. An experience in
horsebreaking is an experience in
A well-bred horse of good disposi
tion is a gentleman; and he should
be treated as such, and by such. It
is the quiet low-voiced, sympathetic
mnan, with an iron will but gentle
manner, who succeeds best with
Mr. Higgins and Gentlemen of the Jury.
When, in his charge to the grand
jury, Judge Townsend urged you
to see to it that the chaingang is
properly treated, he was calling
your attention to an important
matter, and it is to be hoped that
his words made the impression
which they deserve and that his
charge will be carried out. In the
language of this wise and just judge
they are human beings and should
not suffer anything except what is
imposed by the court. That is a
noble sentiment and it has our un
Just What You Want.
Lots of people want more than
they get or can get. They would
wear diamonds, some of them be
cause their neighbors wear the rich
jewels. Man wants but little, so it
is to the other side we speak in
Daniels & Williamson have jewels
to suit all styles of fashion and
all shades of beauty. They have a
fine line of rings, including en
gagement rings-and especially
leap year engagement rings-- that.
will make a rival's eyes sparkle.
The D. & W. rings are particularly
adapted to shapely fingers, and on
account of the war now on they
will be sold at reduced figures, be
cause the firm wishes to dispose of
them so as to have more time to
keep up with the war news. In
their large and beautiful stock of
brilliant goods Daniels & William
son have many things suitable for
gifts-from cotton wedding to dia
mond-and some of them are the
very idea for presents to those who
were born on the 29th of February
and whose birthdays are conse
quently celebrated every fourth
year. This is the year and Daniels
& Williamson the place. See their
