Haines' Patent
The Best and Most Effectual in Use.
NUMEROUS patent* Lave been issued and variou*
improvements made on Safety Bridies, but bere
is nothing invidious in saying that the invention \ a
tented by Joseph C. Haines o; this pa -e i* superior
to any yet offered, e'-m'aning teatur, * of simple i:y
and liower in guiding and surging a horse or horse*
which n-> other possesses. 1 'i •-* esscn'ial h mir-"1
tins patent is in providing the driv inir nin with -li 1 ft- j
ins hearings, winch form th? point* nf attachment i
between the rein and fit rings, and thus net upon the J
I.it directly, nhen easv ana steady driving will con
trol t.'ie nmni'il. hilt when it requires u more severe
application of the I it. said bearings leave the bit i ings
am! give way to the strap* to which they may tie at
tached. This is nil done by the regular driving line,
no extra one heing r- quired. which ought to satisfy
every person of the great superiority ot this inven
tion to un\ otlo I'.
The following certificates from well known gentle
men. some of whom have loot much experience with
horses will show the estimation in which this bridle
is held :
Having occasion tv try tlie Safety Bridle invented 1
hv Joseph Haines, ot this town, upon my runnwav !
iiiare, the result has proven to my entire satisfaction |
that any horse can he prevented from running ort or j
kicking. Mr. 11 M. I'rait. whose large experience j
with horses induced me to e.a'l upon him to .li ne my !
mare and test the safett bridle, concurs in the opin I
ion that it is the best bridle that lias lor its object the !

LEWISTOWS. Aug. 21. 1860.
Joseph C. H-vnes Dear Kir: After having fully tri- !
ed vour Safety Bridle on my uutraim d colts. I find
that v'-nr invention embraces all that is desirable in
a iiridle. Its simple construction, and adaptation to
anv eoinnion bridle ami any rein, cannot but make
its" ue universal. The ease with which it can be ad
justed to ,t soft or liard mouthed horse ;* an excellent
feature, r u l i ng lis use its effectual in preventing
running or kicking as any other patent hi idle or rein
and as~easy on tlie mouth as the common bit-and as
it is always rea.lv at tlie ei iiical moment it can not but
recommen I itself to all w ho wiii try oi look at it.
Respectfully yours, A. T. HAMILTON, M. Lb J
LKWISTOWX. December s. lKfifi. i
1 have been driving horses since I know anything |
about them, and have drove some very viciousie-rsos j
,nd colts. In driving stleh with a common bridle. I
never feel easy nor eomfortal it: to enjoy the ride. Ii j
is more nnnot ing. however, w hen you have persons
with y> u and you can tell by their countenance ti at
tney don't enjoy the ride from fear of vour horse
running a little, <> r even runningaway i have always
tli.Higtit ti ere might be a bridle or bit so constructed
tlu.t von could drive ami hold horses with perfect
. use "and safety. The first of this kind I happened
to see was 1 r. Mart man'a. 1 thought it was vtry good.
In' tl e meantime it occurred to tne that the way the
lines' worked on tlie bridle you could not draw the bit
and let it drop quick enough on your horses. Some
horses and colts when you surge them tightly and
cannot slack the lines quickly, will balk and back
very uglv 1 once saw Mr. Christs and Stamen's
patent with the elastic strap, working on shout the
same principle a* l>r. Harlman's. Mr.Uhnst then;
gave me a bridle to try on my horse 1 had the same
objection to it I had to L>r. llartman s. My attention
was next called to Mr. Jos. C. Humes patent, ot our
tow n M v attention was arrested immediately with
the appearance of it. 1 have been using it tor some
two weeks quite successfully. 1 have drove along the
railroad and other uglv places, tee ling quite sate. I
think it embraces all you can get out ot a bridle. It
the public once get to see this bridle, thev can t help
but understand its simplicity, durability and effective
ness. and taken together, cannot help recommending
itself Railroads are made and being made through
the country in every direction, crossing our pubuc
road.s four or five times in as many miles sometimes.
These crossings often occur at very uyiy place. A
parlies are more or less afraid of meeting the trains
when they are traveling for fear their horses will take
t'ri dit and not be able to hoi a them. 1 huscommunt
tv remember* how seriously Dr. Isaac Kothrock, of
snvder county, was hurt at the crossing, at the new
Tannuiv la*t May. He found he eou.d not hold his
horse and then git out of bis buggy, and the .horse
tore him arouni badlv. •

This community is well aware of the fact that in
the midst of an extensive practice, Di. G.W. Hoover
was almost kille d by the running oft of hiaiware. I

Bridle invented by Joseph U. Haines, and I foundl that
she was entirely under my control, I be

Any persons having fractious horses are invited
to bring them to the undersigned, or during his ab
sence to Mr. I'ratt, and they can readily be satisfied
that any horse can not only be prevented trom KlCK

One evening four German students j
at a university were enjoying them
selves in tin upper room ot'a little hotel.
They had four instruments, and were
employing themselves in making music
alter the hard labors of the day. There
was a pause in their music, but no
sooner had they ceased playing they ;
heard an old man playing a voiiin be
neath their window in the street. They
went to the window and looked out,
watching him until he had ceased play
ing. One of them threw out a little
piece of money, and said to him, laugh
ing: 'Here, poor Peter, this is'3ll we
have for you now ; come again some
other time.'
•Yes,' said another, 'come again in a
year from now.'
' Then we will give 3011 a little house
for a present,' said the third.
'Yes, in the middle of a garden,'said
the fourth.
The old man was struck with won
der at such tt promise. His long white
hair shone brightly in the light of the
lanterns which h ing out at a neigh
holing restaurant. He looked up to
the window and said, after a moment's
reflection : 'Young people are you in
earnest in what 3011 say to me? 1
hope you are not making light of an
old man.'
'lndeed we are in earnest,' repl ed
Ernest, with excited voice; and his
three companions called upon God to
witness their seriousness.
'Farewell, then,' replied theold man,
I take 103' leave of you. One 3" ear
from to day, at this same hoar, expect
me to come and pla\- a tune beneath
this window. Farewell, may the Al
mighty One, whose name you have
called upon, bless you in 3 0111' kind
The old man went off after invoking
this blessing upon them. The students
closed the window, took their instru
ments again in their hands, anil after
playing three jr four lively tunes
seemed to forget all that had occurred.
Ernest said to them, however, after
the space of about half an hour, '3*oll
seem to he very quiet, 1 cannot he, for
1 have made a promise that L would
give something which I have hot got.'
•What promise?' answered one of his
light hearted companions.
•The promise of a house and garden.'
A loud hii'gh was tlio response that
he met with, and the students separa
ted. They met again on the following
evening, and during their interview
Ernest called to mind the promise ot
the night before. They made light of
him, and told him that he was foolish
to pay any more attention to it. Then
said he: 'L don't see where your con
sciences are, if you can make a promise
and break your word.'
'How can we fulfill an}* promise of
that kind?' said Christopher. 'Our
parents are all poor, and have no more
than they can do to send us to the uni
versity. How then can they help us
to buy a house and garden for a fool
ish old man ? Good night, comrades,
I wish you as pleasant asleep as.l shall
But this kind of argument did not
affect Ernest much, for he could not
help thinking that he was compelled
to keep his bargain. He was the
poorest one of the group, for his moth
er was a plain widow, and she made
her living by washing. The promise
he had made deeply affected him, and
he left the university for a week, so
that he might go homo and tell his
mother the pledge that he had made
to the old musician. After ho had
told her, she replied :
'Keep it, my son, keep it, if it costs
you your life.'
'That is what I'll try to do, .mother,
and I hope I shall have your prayers.'
Ernest returned to the university
and told his friends that they must
seriously think of buying tho old man
a house and garden. lie went to a
neighboring village one day, and found
that he could get a neat little cottage
and garden for two thousand guldeifr.
That was a large sum for those poor
students to think of paying, but
through the influence of Ernest the
other three gradually became con
vinced that it was their duty to keep
their promise. The four resolved that
in one year frolu. the time the pledge
was made tho old man should have his
house and garden, if it was in their
power to get it for him.
They must leave the university—a
proceeding for them. They came to
the conclusion to go through the coun
try and give little concerts, for really
this appeared to them to be the only
way possible to gain any money. Even
by pursuing this course there appeared
to be a poor prospect to get a large
sum. Still they resolved to do their
best. They closed their books, put
their instruments in the little bags and
set out on foot to give concerts in the
villages through which they might

a promise of the man who owned tho
bouse and lot which he had looked at,
that he would not sell it under six
months to anybody; and that if he
would take it at the end of that time
he might have it, though the money
need not he paid under a year. Week

expenses were not heavy, but their in

months, and a half passed by, and still
they had but little above seven hun
dicd guldens It was a great question
with them how the remaining thirteen
hundred could he raised. They were
spending one day lit a country town,
and a nobleman living in a large castle
a few miies distant, was seeking mu
sicians to attend the wedding of his
| Jaughter who was to he married in
three or lour days. Fortunately
enough for the students, the nobleman
I employed them for the occasion. The
marriage ceremonies took place, and
by and by iw was time for the music to
begin. The students had trained them-
I selves very carefully for that evening
and their selections were certainly of
a very high order. During the course
of the festivities it was noticed that
; the nobleman became very sad. His
face wore a melancholy appearance,
and those who stood nearest to him
{saw him weeping. What could have
; caused him to he melancholy at such
a time as that? One of the pieces
that these musicians had played was
his mother's favorite melody She had
often sung it to him many years ago,
and he had not heard it since, until the
students played it. It was enough to
make him sorrowful, and it drew these
students to his heart in such away that
1 he could not express his feelings. They
had recalled to his memory a piece of
music which he had never been able to
j find in any music store, and which it
was worth a fortune for him to hear.

versity to give concerts Ho supplied
them with three thousand guldens, and
told them he would pay their expenses
at the university for four years, and
that they might have the privilege of
making drafts on him at any time.
Their fortune was better than they
had reason to expect. Ernest had
already written to the owner of the
house "and garden that he might ex
pect them to take it, so that it was now
The students returned to the uni
versity and reached there just a few
weeks before the end of the }*ear when
the house must be ready for the own
er. On the evening of the day when
the old man promised to appear, he
stood below the window in the bright
winter moonlight playing on his violin,
lie was true to his word, and expected
the promise to be kept. The young
men went down and invited hint up,
and told him all that they had done.
They showed him the deed for the
place and gave it to him. On the fol
lowing day he formally took possession
of it, and they supplied it with furni
ture and groceries for housekeeping.
The young men felt that they were
amply repaid for their faithfulness to
their word, by the gratitude and joy
of the old man. But they were not
repaid in feelings, they were more
than repaid even in money.
Fourteen years after that time, that
place came into their possession : for
the old man had died and bequeathed
it to them in his will. That part of
the town rose suddenly in value.—
Many things contributed to increase
its value which I will not enumerate.
It is enough to say, that in seventeon
years from the tiino the four students
gave the deed of that house and gar
den to the old musician, the same prop
erty which had cost two thousand
guldens was worth eighty thousand.
The students therefore were not
merely repaid in heart, but also in
money. They kept their word, and
tlio memory of being faithful to their
word, even to the poor old man who
had no power to compel them to be
true to it, was a pleasant memory as
long as they lived.
