The sojourner in the agreeable hotels of

best hearted horsemen in the country, says
a visitor to the Latskuls. He s driven
stages in these mountains for thirty-five
years, and his salient remarks on the "way
women drive" would be worthy of being
preserved in print and liberally given out,
as are tracts, for the sake of misunderstood
horseflesh. Tom only received twenty
copies of that charming autobiography of
a horse, "Black Beauty," from mountain
maids who know how well he likes horses.
"They keen fishinwith the lines," says
Tom, when giving points on the way
women drive. "They all think they've got
a bite. A woman can't help it; it's natural.
She's got a notion she oughter git along
faster, and she keeps a-pushing, a-pushing
on the lines.
"Hold your lines taut in one hand; a turn
of your wrists guides yonr horses all right,"

of a ball of twine with the air of a pro
fessor demonstrating a scientific fact.
