jf: Nothing is more important, and
| nothing, perhaps, receives less alien
Ition on the farm than "breaking the
colt," says a writer in the New York
Tribune Farmer. This is especially
- true in the South, where almost every
farmer keeps more horses than lie
needs ^for his own use. This being
the case, the colts are often allowed
Y' to run at large until they are four
years old, and even much older, before
ft. ' they are handled in any way. When
one is needed for use he is haltered
afc. up with strong ropes and held by sev
eral negroes, whose only claim to abilE;Y-r
ity to handle young stock is based on
i:'; . strength and rough treatment. Thus
fe the poor colt is brought to obedience
fcfS by fear of cuffs, kicks and blows. No
wonder kind horses are scarce. Any
liorse that has been broken in this [
?4" way can never be trusted. You may '
' use one that has.been broken in this j
manner for a long time, and some day i
he will remember his early training |
si and kick or rmi away with yon.
. The best way I have ever seen a j
j|? .colt handled is to begin die work
fe-V yourself .when the animal is quite
jffr> small. This may lie done by caressing
him in his stall and about his
Sy: dam. When he is perfectly gentle 1
halter hirn and direct some one to
y lead his mother, while I allow him to
V.': 5 walk along after her as 1 walk by
him, holding his baiter. In this way
iS*;'. '* ho is trjiinivl r, "hnltpr l/vol" before
r," he ix aware of it himself.
. I always get my wife to assist me j
?Jjt' in tnis work, or rather play. When
r|w'-. the colt Is accustomed to the use of
i thei halter I put lines on him, and have
J my wife use the lines while I lead
:W him wherever I please, hi this way j
?v we teach him to he guided by the I
lines and not fear any kind of "scare
felt,*'- crows." After he is easily turned j
(fey by the lines I have my wife drive him I
feydv '* ?n a good road, while I pull a buggy i
after him. In this way lie is used as j
often as possible until he is one to
H". two years old. Then we begin to use
S:" ' 'him in reality to a light buggy on
B&aigood roads until he is old enough to
mee. the stern realities of a busy life.
" "After this other people arc allowed
|L><o 'to\tise him gently.
So -well does this kind of training
last that I have trained many good

was* neglected. One of these has
never been known to kick, shy or run.
One beautiful thoroughbred colt that
we had handled in this way was
driven by us to (own to church. This
was his first time to he driven, and
as we were going down the street
we overtook my mother-in-law walking
to church. 1 got out of the buggy
and she got in. After tlicy had
started she asked my wife if the horse
was gentle. My wife replied: "I sup
pose so: it is the first time he was
ever driven."
It is noticed by all our neighbors
that every horse we own is perfectly
gentle and absolutely safe for anyone
to ride or drive. This gives me quite
an advantage in selling a horse. I try
to have two or three to sell each year
and always find a ready market for (
them on account of their good qualities,
and this at fancy prices. You
see, it not only .pays to have them
broken in this manner to sell, but if .
you keep one Air your own use you
have the proud satisfaction of knowing
that he is safe for (he entire family
to use, and the hired hand is not
tn c--T4r.il him in :mv war. This
satisfaction alone is worth much to the
busy farmer, who lias plenty of worry
a i best.
Solomon never said a truer thins
than when be said: "Train up a child
in the way be should so. and when lie
is old lie will not depart, from it."
This seems to he as true of colts as
it is of men. You bring up a colt in
that wild and broken way, and when
old he will not depart from it, although
he may have done so in middle
life. For this same reason we see old
horses that have been kind and gentle
for years become "old fools" in their
last years of life. They are simply
following up their early iraining.

Sharks Richly Deserve .the .Odious
Name Applied to Them.
Every once in a while some one wit
rise up and tell .us that there are nc
man-eating sharks. It would not <2c
to tell an old sailor that. He knows
better. Some years ago I met r
young man who knows that there arc
such fish?he had left; his left foot anc
part of his leg with one of them
while he was bathing off Key West
and had not the ship's boat got to liirr
the moment it did, the shark would
have eaten the rest of him.
When sailing in a steam whaler in
1874 one of our amusements was fish
ing for sharks. I made a hook aftei
a drawing and with it we caught a
number of them. One of our besi
steerers gave me his opinion of how
the shark became a man-eater, and ;
have often since thought lie had it
right. Since then I have seen the
same opinion advanced to account foi
the man-liunting tigers. All tigers arc
not man-eaters. His idea was that i:
a man-eating shark did attack a mar
when any other sharks that might be
in the neighborhood would also at
lack him, and after these had done sc
they, too, became man-eaters.
The shark is like a wolf in one re
spect. If he gets hurt, any of his
companions that may be present wu
tear liim to pieces without loss o
time. I have seen thorn do it.
We were under sail and were stand
ing west under a light wind, hardlj
doing more than keeping steerage wa>
with the sea as smooth as a mill pond
when one morning just after dayligh
a shark was seen ahout 100 yards
astern of t.lie ship. He had probablj
been doing this all night. Only his
dorsal fin showed above the water, bin
he seemed to be a large one. Oui
hook was thrown to him, but the onlj
notice he took of it was to drop a lit
tie further astern; he did not want the
hook. At noon he was still in his
place astern, and. leaving the lioolout
for him, we went to dinner. He
might get bold enough to take the
hook when we were not in sight )
thought, but. he did not, for when we
next came on deck lie was still asteri:
as before, and now T made up mj
mind to shoot him.
We had rifles on board, but I could

tain's permission, and just as I had
started to go and get his permission,
lie came on deck, and seeing the shark ?
sent nie for his glaes and rifle.
I brought up an old Sharps rifle, and
while the captain stood at my elbow
with the glass to coach me I fired
three shots; using his fin, the only ,
^ part of him I could see, to aim by. I
wanted to hit liim amidships and as

* was too high, the next one not high
enough, but the third got him. and the

^ The sharks will follow a ship day

that it is he they want to pick up.

if he did drop over. When we found
them following us. we would bring up
