1 nocoiiT him of Johnson, tho lior.-e-iloi'lor,
niul hesalil ho was ilaiumcd by
rioia Tcnijilo, 1iim1 by Illni'k llmvk,
ami ilcMreil by nil Iho liorso Jockeys in
tho State. I wlihotl tltoy had got him.
J lu was fourteen anil a half hands
high anil one linger over, ills eolor
wa a dun, and his imivhaser was about
in that condition alio.
Ho was slightly sprung in tho knees,
and his tall had oneo boon out, no Uint
It stood right on end, nud looked
moro llko a bunch of straw nailed on
lo tho end of a log than anything el.-e.
II lit he wiiirnthcrn tlne-Iooklng horse,
and the man warranted him kind,
lint it was a jioor kind, I afterwards
llosaid he could mako his mile in
bido of i;..'t"i without an ell'ort. It was
two hours and thirty-live minutes ho
mount, unless ho intended to deceive
me. Hut ho could mako a milo lnldu
of that timo if he exerted himself nnd
didn't get one of Ills fits on him.
He was a peculiar liorte, and wus
subject ton variety of complaint that
would hnvo killed an ordinary animal ;
but ho seemed lo Maud them well
Tho llibt night 1 had him, 1 put him
lu the stablo and gnvo him feed. Tho
next morning my wlfo remarked t lint
s.ho didn't sleep n pnrtlclo on account of
onio locomotivo or otlier out on tho
ruilrond, Hint wns pulling and blowing
all night, trying to mako headway. I
heard It, too, and it struck mo ns queer
Hint the engine couldn't get past Hint
I went out to see about it. It wasn't
i locomotive, 11 was my hor.-e. Ho was
breathing and sighing unlike any otli
er hor-o I ever heard before, anil I was
alarmed nbotit him, 1 wns afraid it
would blow tho whole end of tho stable
nut. I unhitched him nud took him
around to Johnson.
lohnson seemed surprised, but said lie
only bud n slight nttack of tho heaves.
"All horses most lias it. It'll p.v.s olf
.-aid ho ; so I drove him honioand creat
ed an impression in the town that tho
wind wns freshening for a hurricane.
Vbottt half wuy up the mnln btieet ho
camo to n dead halt ; I clicked my
tonguo fur lilui to go on. Ho never
budged. 1 touched him with tho whip
1 lo begun bucking, and backed tho bug
gy right upon tho pavement and through
a plato glass window, worth am do!
Then ho started down tho street like
lightning, and ran over two boys.breali
lug their legs und crippling them for
life. I won't mention tho expen-jo I
wai to, ns yoogvouldu't believe mo If I
was to give tuo ugtires.
I wns so busy attending court for two
wicks that I hadn't n chance to usohlin;
at tho end of Hint timet his. lower Jaw
had swollen up until ynu cottlilii't tell
whether ho hnil got his head on upsldo
down or not. Bo I drove him over
to Johnson to seo what was the matter
Johsou seemed lo feel hurt that the
uiilmal should behnvo so, IJut ho said
it wns only a Ilttlu touch of the glau
tiers. "It don't hurl n boss ii hit to
hnve'eni now nnd then, itdoes'emgooilj
but it'll pns off," mud Johiinou,
So I wns moro hopeful, nud drove
home ngnlu without any serious tied
dent, except that Hie horso shied nt it
chicken in tho rond, and took the wheel
oil' by running thobuggy intotliu fence
SHU 1 didn't blame him muclr, for Mr,
.lohnson (old mo Hint "It wns good for
a boss to lio timid ; It's a sign of pure
Tho glniideis dld't tilled hlsnppetllo
any. Ho nto moro oats, aud hay than
would hnvo run an ordinary llvcry-stn
ble, nnd not satlsllcd with that, ho
chewed tho feed box nil up, and tiled to
gnaw down n yellow plno partition.
Johnson said it was "a good thing for
a boss to bo n heavy feeder."
1 nover owned a horso before, nnd I
was n llttlo set up about It. So 1 thought
I would drive my wife nnd family In
town to church tho following Sunday
1 le wont nlonge all right until heenme In
front of Ferguson's house. Mr, Fergu
son Is Jenlous of my having a horse, und
our girls don't speak to tho Ferguson
girls, becnti'o they said they were
"stuck up" about our horse.
When this nulinnl nrrlvcd there ho
suddenly begnti to slugger from nldo to
sldo nnd boll nroiind llko a drunken
man, butting Ids hend Into tree boxes
nud one tiling or another llko some old
ram. At last ho fell over tho bank nt
tho side of Iho road, turned three orj
four somersaults, dragged tho carrlngo
uffcrhim, and then lay stretched out
there apparently as dead ns nny dum
my. Tho women had on their best clothes,
nnd they were completely spollcd.whlle
iUiguslii sprained her wrist 60 Hint she
couldn't do iv stitch of work for n
month. And tho wliolo Ferguson fami
ly stood nt tho window nnd smiled.
I walked two miles to get Johnson to
come and look nt tho horse, llo enine
nlong nnd appeared as If ho was pro
voked nt the horso for his conduct. Then
he stooped down and stuck n knifo Into
his neck and let out n barrel or two of
blood, and the horse gradually got
"It's nothing but an attack of blind
staggers," said Mr. Johnson. "Kvcry
boss has got to have It. It's Just llko
tho measles In children. It'll pass olf,
and ho'll bo better for it."
Wo got him home by easy stages to
tho stnble, and there ho stnld for thieo
weeks, until ho seemed better, except
that lie. still had a touch of tho heaves
and the distemper.
Shortly afterwards I had to drive over
to Delewaro City to seo a man, and I
gnvo Mr. Johnson ten dollnrs to go
with me, In caso tho horse camo to
pieces on the road, or anything of aso
rlous nattiro happened.
Wu started nt daybreak, nnd hud pro
gressed about a milo and a half by din
ner time, when the liorse suddenly stop
ped short, nud would not budgo nil
I suggested Hint perhaps tho barbed
steed bad forgotten something nnd
wanted to go buck. Mr. Johnson said,
"Xo, It was only ouo of his llttlo tricks.
Most every horso has soma eccentricity
or other. Just let him alniio for a min
ute and ho'll get over it."
We waited three-quarters of an hour.
Then Johnson got out anil undertook
to pat him on tho neck, aud the horse
got frightened nnd kicked until he got
onuleg through the dashernnd couldn't
get It out.
i asked Mr. Johnson what he thought
wo had better do now. Hostiid "It was
nil right. All really comlliutiwHUlckwu
lie wouldn't give n cent for nn nnlninl
lhaUiiulii't pluck enough to kick. It
was u sign Hint he felt his oats."
So wo loosed his leg and got In, and
before wo had timo to' pick up tho lines
he gave a Jerk nud stnrted down tho
rond nt lightning speed lightning for
him, Hint is say about four miles nil
hour, inn the buggy into a ditch, nud
then tried tojiiinpovern fence, hut fail
ed miserably, und got another blind
.slugger on hlni.anil laid there until nine
o'clock that night.
1 didn't get to see that man nt Dela
ware City, and, In fact, haven't seen
him yet. Johnson said it was a good
thing anyhow, for they had the fever
down thoriyuul I ought (o consider it a
providential thing that the hor.-e wns
taken Jiiit as he was. if wo hud gouo
to Delaware City we might both hnvo
been dead men,
It is singular how Johnson always
looks on the bright side of things when
Hint hoi.-e Is concerned.
Then I thought that perhaps after all
I hail better sell tho hor.-e, he wns so
much trouble, so 1 nil vert Ned him. The
man who came to buy him wus not so
hopeful ns Jolin-on. lie snld the horso
wus spavined, foundered, and distem
pered, llo had the gliindiTs.uud heavw,
nnd blind stnirgeis, and hots, and ring
bone, and a number or other infirmities,
Hint 1 don't care to mention. He said
the horse was too hard lu the mouth,
"And 1 don't llku to pull too hard on
n horse, you know," snld he, "for I
know ii man who split u liorse in half
jerking at Mm."
So I told this man 1 wasn't much at
driving u bargain, but still if ho would
tako the horso oil' my hands fur any rea.
souablii sum ho might have Mm. Id
said he wouldn't assume the risk of
driving him for les than ten dollars.
So I gave lilm that Mini, and he took
him away, Hut ho hadn't gonu moro
than half u mile before tho hoisegot nn
other blind stagger on him, und laid
down, and gaped, and stretched bis
legs out and tlien died, und broke for
horso heaven fur all I know.
Mr. Johnson was culled in, hut ho
couldn't do nny tiling for Mm. He only
ild lie considered It n good thing, "for
tho liorse, you know, must have stiller
cd il good deal, and now he's out of his
misery, nud us you're n klud-hcarteil
man. (Juill, you ought to bu glad." ho
I was, but didn't feel exultant when
Johnson handed In a bill of one lain
died dollars for ijroiojtslonal services, It
didn't seem fjir wit i novel' nan any
