A HORSE WITH BRAINS.
An Animal That Knew the Value of a
Watch anil C ould Carry One Like i Man.
John Holt, from Tom Green county, was
visiting some of his relatives when are
porter met him and heard him tell an in
teresting rtory of a remarkably intelligent
animal: "I have Just met with a very seri
ous loss," he said. "You know 1 was al
ways fond of hiintini;, and since I have
been in Tont ttrw-n county I have missed
few opportunities to take a day on the
prairies. Atmtit four years ago now I be
came the possessor of a line young horse
thA tainted me exact lv in uait and habits.
and he has In-en almost mv constant com
panion bince. He was especially fine in
hunting. If 1 wanted to dismount and
slip around a few hundred yards to get
nearer a covey of partridges or a gang of
prairie chickens. Don would stand perfect
ly still where I left him. When I was
ready to mount again I had but to call
Here, Don!' and he would come running
straight to me.
"It was more than a vear ago that I was
walking over the prairie oue dav, as Ioftcn
did, with Don following aliout twenty
steps in the rear, when my game bag,
which I had slung lightly over oue shoul
der, slipped oft" and fell to the ground. I
went lazily on several steps, and then
turned and was alout to go back after it,
when, to my astonishment, Don came
along and picked it up. When he came to
me he didn't show much disposition to sur
render it, and so I allowed him to carry it
a mile or two. That was the start of it.
"Often after that he would come nosing af
ter the game bag and insist on having it, so
that I had to let him carry it sometimes to
get rid of his importunities. I believe that
I could soon have taught him to retrieve
He was a born hunter, if ever a horse was,
and took as much interest in the siort as
any sportsman of them all.
"One day I had business at a ranch ten
miles away, anil took in my pocket an ex
ceedingly handsome gold watch which
my neighbor ranchman had sent by me to
San Angclo to have it mended. I rode Don
and took my gun, hoping to kill some
birds on the way, and as it happened
game was unusually plentiful. I went
here and there over the prairies, walked
several miles, 1 should think, and made
wide detours, and it was not until my
game bag was full that any recollection
came to me of what my mission was. 1
felt for the watch then, merely to see that
it was safe, but to my horror it was gone.
I went through all my pockets, but it was
in none of them. I turned and commenced
trying to retrace my steps over the prairie,
but that was impossible. I couldn't follow
them a htindred yards. I tell you I felt
mean. I knew that watch, b.-siJes lwing a
very expensive one. had been a gift from
my friend's dead wife and could not lie re
placed. "While I stood still, trying tothink what
to do, Don came close up behind me. 1 put
my hand out to stroke his nose without
looking at him, and as true as I live that
horse wascarrying the watch in his mouth
with the chain dangling. I never was as
glad to see anything in my life. There
wasn't the slightest sign of a scratch from
his teeth on the watch. He must have
seen me drop it and picked it up. and there
is no telling how Ions he had been carry
"Poor fellow! He stuck a nail in his foot
about two weeks ago and took lockjaw. 1
couldn't stand to see him suffer. I hired
one of the men to hold chloroform to his
nose till his struggles were over." Texas
