The "horse doctor" formerly was a quack. lie picked up a smattering around the stables of the racing men. The knowledge he lacked he made up by bravado. By the time he was gray headed he learned a few things that it was not well to do. He was rained like some people by the ex pensive school of experience, at the cost of much suffering on part of the animals and expense to the owner. He always charged all the people would pay. Today we have a noble class of men in the ranks of veteri nary mediciinc, recognized as full fledged members of the regular pro fession of medicine and surgery, af filiated closely with the scientific men of the medical profession. The old idea was that a sick animal was to be left alone to die or get well with possibly the aid of some dose de vised by the wild imagination of the stable boys. A favorite dose used to be boiled peach leaves' for colic. By the time the leaves were gathered and boiled down to a pulp the horse was well or dead. If he was alive the dose w"as drenched down him and he was "cured." How To Give Medicines. The drenching of a horse is often attempted by unskillful hands and the animals receives a portion into his lungs; after a few days of suffering, dies. I had a man that knew abso lutely nothing about horses -and in one of our abscnocs from home at tempted to drench a four-year-old draft horse; when the horse resisted he had him thrown down .and drench ed him through the nose. When wc came home an hour or so afterwards he told of it. IFc felt abused when wc told him the chances were against the horse, for St was not proper to drench a horse through the nose, Sure enough the poor creature had received enough of the drcjich into the lungs to die within ai few days. Appliances. Today the scirncc of veterinary medicine has advanced to the point of making the regular doctor's outfit nearly as extensive as the instruments used by the reguhir attendant of the human family. The pop gun that shoots the ball of medicine down the throat of the adrjenished horse Is one that is in common use. It often alarms the patient so greatly that it is weeks before he will open his mouth for the bit without a struggle. There is now a long list of hypodermic medi cines for the horse. These arc put up in neat cases with syringe and full di rcctions. These arc first vfo rather than for dispensing with the vctcrin ary surgeon. While I never hesitate to give a hypodermic to a horse with acute pain, still I send at once for a veterinarian; the prompt use of mor phJa often saves a rupture of the bow els. Old Horses. It is safe to say that nearly every old horsc that dies while still useful, dies from stomach or bowel troubles. I sometimes think that the horses on the ranch would live forever if sud den colic did not carry them off. Now these faithful old friends need to be more carefully fed than the younger horses. They need to be watched; a little oil cake and bran mixed with dampened rolled barley will keep them thrifty for a long time. The old horse has a value from train ing in vineyard work that adds to his work greatly. lie never tramps vines and any kind of ai two-legged biped can handle him. ITc often is far wiser than his driver and more careful. Save the old horse for the slow, careful work and push the young one into doing the heaivy or fast work. "Floating" the Teeth. The old horse, and, indeed, many young ones, have rough irregular teeth; these sharp edges wound the sides of the mouth and the food is bolted instead of chewed carefully. The veterinary dentist uses a broad file after pinching off the sharp point to make the mouth level once more In the West we often feed foxtail hay. The sharp points run into the miouth and often -a mass is found un dcr the tongue. Once a day the hands hould be put into the horses mouth and all these pulled out. It is com mon to find horses that have breath so offensive from the rotten mass in their mouth that it is noticeable as you pass them tied along the racks-. Helps. t Many young horses bolt their food too rapidly for perfect chewing. There arc corrugated iron boxes to prevent I this as well as several other patents. I The cobbles from the washes large enough for the horse not to be able to I swallow make the cleanest things to I use in the feed box. Three of these fl will allow the feed to drop between I them, and the horse's nose must be I pushed down to nibble up his grain. I A mixed diet often helps the young horse as well as the older ones. Chopped up pumpkins or beets or carrots, five or six pounds once or twice a week, will take the place of green grass. Where a family horse is kept, if the cook will be careful to keep the tops of beets and outside ' leaves of lettuce and cabbage clean and free from grease, the horse wi'l be greatly obliged to the hands that kindly add them to his food. Fears. The only fears that come to the horse owner should be the fear of not watching his health. A little extra care will make a horse live a long time and keep well. Every stable should have a half barrel to give a horse a foot bath when necessary. It should also have -a three-yard Jersey bandage to be used on the leg that ' swells or stocks. The bandage is p;l on beginning at the hoof and after it is well wrapped, it is wet, then a pajit leg or anything to keep it warm is slipped over it. This is the only wat er that should ever touch a horscs leg. Keep the hose off him and watch his teeth. Do not overwork or over load him. He will then serve you twenty or more years. I am driving a marc eighteen years old that has never lost a day from work by sick ness since she was put into harness fifteen years ago. She is sleek and active as a well fed cat. Today she will out-race any colt in the pasture for the fun of going. Yes. Good old Morgan blood. Pity there arc no more of them. They arc spirited, but gentle, intelligent and loving to their owners. Nearer, perhaps, to the der scription of the Arab horse that lrviecl in his master's tent with the children than any horse we have had in the country. WANTED. A first-class, reliable ( man for my farm. Married or single. f Will furnish house. Prefer 3 to S year contract. We raise stone fruits, peaches, cherries and apricots on a, commercial basis; also poultry, heavily. Will pay liberally for the right kind of a man. W. S. RAMER, 503 Atlas Block. Salt Lake City.
