Well, friend, we will now take
up the mule subject, and this
copy of The Mail is worth $50
to any man. It costs you about
2 cents so there's $49.98 clear
profit. Ain't you happy?
As I said in town Saturday,
some people in Payne county
think it difficult to break a
mule, but they are just afraid,
that's all. If you had had as
many rides over the saw-buck
on a mule's pass as the Cimar
ron "Valley Farmer had in his
days you could reflect .. now. in
istead of looking forward. In
other words, you should look be
hind when you are near a donk
ey there's where 90 per cent
of the action comes from. The
first thing to do is to gain the
mule's confidence and respect,
and study his disposition. This
can be done best by turning
him into the barn yard and with
a good field glass study him
from the top of the stable roof.
Youare more apt to be unob
served if up above the danger
line and are safer. Should the
wind blow hard, tie yourself to
the roof. After the mule is
tied in the stable and the door
is shut you can como down
and eat. In this study you
should throw aside your pre
judices and view the animal
with calmness, patience, im
partiality and non-partisanship.
In about one week you will have
enough courage stored up to
form a better acquaintance with
him. It is well to do this 'by
pushing a load of hay ahead of
you and have your wife to
watch and tell you when to get
under the wagon. After a while
the mule will get so that he
will eat hay out of the wagon
and then you can sing to him
from a distance and study the
angle of his hind legs by stand
ing a looking glass against the
barn in the back of him. Do
this while the mule is still ab
sent. After you have got so
you can memorize the wrinkles
on his hoofs, corner the mule
somewhere. The well is the best
or the cistern will do if there
is water in it. Get a halter on
him and pull out with a well
derrick. If he has not been in
more than a week he will be al
right to leave alone in an hour
cr two, when you can retire
and rest a few hours and con
template. Feed the mule sugar
if he likes something sweet. You
can do this by tying a lump
to a fish line, getting away
the proper distance and cast
ing for him. After a day or
so he will get used to this and
take his sugar on the fly. A
mule that is properly sweetened
is worth more than a sour mule.
Get the hired man to help
you now and put the harness on
with a pitch fork. The crupper
should be shaped like a dip net,
and at least three feet wide,
which is necessary, as the tail
will have to be steered through
with a fish pole. Set the collar
on r c.ounle of low nosts and
'call the mule through with su
gar. Now fasten the harness.
i ne best way to do tnis is to put
the mule back in the cistern and
let the hired man buckle it
while he is swimming. A mule
is like a bumble bee neither
one can bumble much in the
water. Lift him again with the
derrick, let him dry, and be
careful that he does not dry in
streaks, then' put him in the
shafts. This is easy if you have
tied his legs together as you
ought while he was in the well.
The shafts should be at lea?t
eight feet long and the lines and
at least ninety. There is a little
danger of a mule kicking if you
follow these directions.
Talk often and gently to the
mule. Although he may not
perfectly understand, he might
guess at it. A great many
things that a mule will do are
not generally known. These can
only be learned by experience.
The mule's heart is in the right
place, but the nerve center be
tween his brain and his hind
legs frequently get crossed on a
live wire. To avoid half of this
you may try a different scheme.
Find the mule's nerve center
with a compass and attach a
fence wire to it any horse doc
tor in Payne county will do thi3
for you. When you have the
wire attached wrap it around
your lighting rod and stand the
mule out in the thunder storm.
This will burn out his fuse
and thereafter he can kick only
ionce in two seconds instead of
twice. This gives you a double
chance of passing him on the
run without making the life in
surance agent smile.
Another way to break a mule
is to hoist him up on the house
roof, ' laying him across the
gable, and tying three tons of
brick on each end. When it
cracks he is broke, but he'll
be "dead broke" this time, arid
a dead broke mule is like a dead
broke man he'll kick himself.
This won't give him any time
to kick his companians, and so
you reap the benefit. See?

JOHN GILPIN'S AUTO RIDjV.
John Gilpin was a citizen of
credit and renown,
1 Until his auto got him jr.Lo
i rows all over town;
I He took the auto from its place
I beside an empty stall,
.And filled the tank with wh.it
j is called denatured alcohol.
j 7c auto sputtered down t le
! street in an uplifted moc t.
I A jolly gait, a joyous pace it
i was that it pursued ;
IJut soon its honks grew n 11
cous and its sputterin ?3
-grew thick '
Instead of "chuff-chuff-chuff,"
it changed to "hick-hic:
hick-hick !"
It whirled about, it flew aboi.lv
it covered all the street,
It yowled at scared pedestrair,3
and knocked them frcm
their feet;
It swooped around the come 3
with mighty careless rec !,
And then went half a block or
eo on one wobbly wheel.
And then ! And then its chuf '
j ing changed to somethir j
I wild and new,
i With great rapidity it yellec :
! "hurroo-hurroo-hurroo !"
I John Gilpin tried to tone :";
j down, to turn it rounc .
I about ;
ilt merely coughed as though ":
: said: "Sit still or ge ;
j thrown out !"
the shades or dusk came o:-.
apace, the auto shrieke .
with joy,
And seemed to say : "Fill u
i tank anozzer time, o!"
boy !"
And though John Gilpin did hi.v
best to slow it up a bit,
The auto struck a gait tha';
meant "Let's make a nigh :
of it."
And so it went along the street,
with people playing tag,
With lamps aglow, now to and
fro an auto with a jag '!
And then it tried to climb ;.
tree, and then began t
weep,
And leaned against a lamp-pos ;
and went solemnly to sleep.
John Gilpin on the morrov
found he could not turn.
its crank
Until he's put a quart of bromo-
seltzer in its tank
But O! 'tis sad to tell about;
it surely is a shame
Although the auto had the jag,
John Gilpin got the blame.
