? IIORSKS AM) HOT WEATHER *
Hot weather Is always the occa
sion of great suffering among horses]
on the farm, as well as elsewhere,
i We frequently hear of horses being
overcome by heat, or dying from the
i ffectS of too much water while in
an overheated condition.
One of the most common causes of |
leath to horses in hot weather is go
ng too long without water. It is not |
tmUSUal lor Hams to be kepi in the
? eld from one o'clock in the after
noon until seven in the evening with
out, having an opportunity to slake
-heir thirst. The man who drives]
them has a supply of water in a jug
from which he draws frequently. It
is a safe assertion tha4 the hoists
would drink nearly as often as their
liriver if they had the chance to do
(i. Anyone who has bad to work
while thirsty ??an rendild appreciate
how the horse must feel when, in the
Another common cause of death
riinong horses, und one that natural
er follows the above, is drinking too
much water while warm. We do
not believe that it Injures a horse in
any way to drink water when ho
warm, providing tho water is nol too
?old and the horse is not ;o thirst;
?hat. he will drink a largo amount. The
great barm that comes IjO horses drink
ing water when they are warm Hea in
their being so thirsty that they drink
an excessive amount. Where horses
tfjure denied the privilege! of drinking
mjffi* they become thirsty, it is no doubt
?vise to keep them from having their
till when they reach water.
The better plan is not to allow
horses to become so terribly thirsty
'hat they will drink to excess when
they get at the water tank. If it is a
practical plan, and we believe it is
in many cases, water should be tak
en to the field for tho horses as well
as for the men who work there. If!
this is not feasible, then horses should
not be kept so long In the field.
There is more than the humani
tarian side to this question, for wlth
out a doubt horses which receive wa
ter when they become thirsty are
uiven new lifo^ust as a man Is renew
ed In energy when his thirst is
quenched. The horse with a satis
fied thirst has more spirit and great
er capacity for work. Then the occa
ionnl loss of ' a valuable horse
through overheating or drinking loo
much water when warm is another
material consideration. Thus both
from the side of kindness to animals
and from the financial side, it pays
to keep horses from becoming ex
ceedingly thirsty - Nebraska Fanner.
LOCKING PINCER IS LATE31
Little Tool That Locks When Closed
Requires Considerable Force to
Open Just Invented.
A pair of pincers that lock when
they are closed and that require
considerable force to open have
been invented by a California man,
and men who use pincers that need
a tight grip will appreciate the
Implement. The Jaws are loekfd
by dovetail tongues that enter
sockets at tholr inner ends. Nor Is
this tool only to be used aa pmcero.
On either aide of tho jaws are a
hammer ftnd punch, and the divi
ders arc removably attached and are
held in place by thumb screws so
that they can be taken out at any
time wLen they are likely to be
bent by the work to which the
tool is being used or to scratch the
user. Midway up the handle, too,
Is the rule by which the spacing
of the dividers can be regulated,
doing back to the pincers it should
be mentioned that their jaws are
?o curved that when closed they
surround a circular opening by
means of which pipes or other
round bodies may be accommodated,
though, of course, the jaws will
not lock if they do not meet at the
ATTACH WHEELS TO SLEIGH
Conveyance That Is Hsndy When One
Is Caught Miles From Home After
Snow Is Melted.
Any person who has been sleighing
up to the eleventh hour and got caught
miles from homo after the snow had
melted will appreciate the invention of
a Minnesota man hero described. This
invention is nothing ieaa than a wheel
attachment for sleighs which enables
the driver to get homo without difficul
ty, even If the snow Is all gone. Two
pairs of wheels aro attached to the
body of the sleigh, with the front and
rear crank axles mounted on pivots. A

bar running through tho two axles is
adjustably connected to tho rear sup
port of the sleigh body, A strong
: pring keeps the wheels clear ot tho
ground when they are not in use, but
when needed they are let. down, and
tho connecting bar locked so that the
sleigh rests on tho wheels and tue run

ground. It takes only a few minutes
to make tho chango and tho vehicle
may be used comfortably in places
where tho conditions of the road vary.
Utillza Manufacturing Waste.
To utilize manufacturing waste is in
