How to Buy a Horse.
'In buying a horse, first take a gen
eral look at him, then examine his
hocks and watch his flanks, then stu
dy his head. The most common defects
in a horse are found in the hoek and
wind. Blood and bone spavins are
easily detected, the former as puffy
enlargements which the man that is
selling will always tell you are wink
puffs, but which are always spavinls
if found about the hocks and the lat
(er as a hard bony growth over the
inside of the joint. The flanks are
almost. sure to "give away'' the
heaves, although he may be doped in
such a way as to effectually conceal
it except to a careful observer. If
suspicious about his wind and you
cauiot deteimine by flanks, wait, until
you get to his head. The nostrils

of defects. Many a worthless horse
has been sold for a fancy price sim
ply because he was fat, while many
of the very best have failed to find
a buyer at any price for want of it.
The age of a horse is most easily
determined by the cups of the teeth.
At four years the horse has its perma
nent. front teeth. At five there are
deep black cavities in the center of
all lower nippers. At six these cavi
ties disappear in the two center lower
nippers. Two more lose their cavities
for each year to the eighth and then
the two center upper tippers lose
their cavities, and each year two more
until at the age of ten the teeth are
all smooth, or retain only a small
black speek. After the age of ten the
length of the teeth and tushes m'ust be
judged, even then the age can be de
teriined only approximately.-R. E.

Dean Swift predicted the death up
on a particular date of Partridge, the
chief of the atrological almanac mak

cement of his demise on that very
date. Poor Partridge proteste.d in
vain that lie was still alive, for the
brilliant author of ''GulHiver's Tra

own pretended science that lie must
actually have ceased to exist.
