Who'd wonder at his pinched and wearied face.
When he is from God's own grabs and trees debarred?
But Just beer:rise I pity him. I guess • ,
The God who made him does not pity less

But then the Nana one's holm In 'et always that,

,They were as kind at home as kind can be.
It father carried Irate or little Joe,
The rest would fret, and want a turn, you know,
But never minded how he mrried me.
I've /revered over many a mile like that.

I think you'll always find them very kind.
It's when you go selimplog to your mlud,
You get pushed over, or let coldly be.

We cripplee have our hearts, sir, just like you
I could not play with urchins rough and strong,
But played among the girls; and there was ono
Would leave her comrades to their dance and fun
Beside my halting crutch to move along;
Lent me her books, and gave herself no rest
To dud the flowers she knew I liked the bdst.
And at the old church steps she'd Mans wait
And give a friendly hand to help me down,
Till prouder of my crutch than of a crown
I grew. Out of such threads God weaves our Cato:
• And St wont on, and I grew up with her,
And was bsWitched to ask—you guess it, sir?
We two were walking in a long green lane;
Why, Jim," she said, •• I never thought you'd care
You seemed so different from the rest—but there;
Forget it. Let us he ourselves again."
She pitied we, and yet with half a smile,—
I should have understood it all the while.
I was so foolish that I couldn't bear
Tlle fields with all their dear old pollard trees.
There always seemed a voice upon the breern
Baying, Why, Jim, I never thought you'd caro."
So now, the old folks dead, I came away,
And•fouutl this Court—a change of scene you'll say
When I went back again she was not there.

lint she had gone. sir, with a babpboy
And'wbere she'd gone the people didn't care;
They gave her bitter names end fon) alograce.
Oh, sir,.l only'saw the sweet, good, childish facet
Pre never found her, sir. I've gone about
Over thia city when my work was done.
But, air, they're many, and she's only one;
And now I think that I mind die without. '

I loved her, sir, and so, I hope, did God!
I've helped a few poor girls for her dear aake.
I do not fear their paint or evil tongue;
Homebody knew them, eir, when they were young
They've told me steiies tlt one's heart to break;
And if I am kind to them, It helps my faith
Ood sent her comfort, somehow, ere her death.
I've had a hard life / Did you say so. sir?
No, no; you see I often ponder thus: .
The very Bible seems express for us.
Christ healed the lame, and Spoke to girls like her
No, sir, I think my sort of life's the best—
Just makes one tired enough to like one's rest.
It's sixty years I've bobbled ou my way,
She must be dead, and I—l can't last long.
I'll know her voice in all the burst of song
When 'leaven's gates open. If she's there, d'ye say?
We mayn't condemn our foes, says God above,
Barely he lets us hope for those we love.
The Hare and the Hedgehog.
This is a tough story to tell, youngster, but
true it is for all that, fur my grandfather,
from whom I have it, used always . to say
when he told it, "True it mtist be, lily son,
otherwise one could not tell it so at Olt"
And this is the way the story ran.
'Twits on a pleasant Sunday morning to
ward barvest time, just as the buckwheat'
blossomed. The sun had gone brightly up
into the heavens, the morning wind swept
warm over the stubble, the lark sang in the
air, the bees hummed in the buckwheat,
the good folk went in their Sunday gear to
church, and all creatures were happy, and
the hedgehog al:so_ _
The hedgehog stOeicrlielo — re - the
his arms folded, - peeped out into the morn
ing air, and chirruped a little song to him
self, just asogood and just as bad as a hedge
hog is wont to sing on a pleasant Sunday
morning. And as he was singing to him
self in a cheery little voice, all at once it
came into his head that lie might just as
well, while: his wife was washing and dress
ing the children, take a little walk into the
field to See how the turnips were standing.
Now the turnips were close to the house,
-and he used to eat them withjiis,family,
so that he looked upon them as his own.—
No sooner said than done. The hedgehog
shut the house door after him, and took his
way to the field. He had not gone very far
from the house, and was about to turn just
by the thorn bush which stands there before
the field, near the turnip patch, when he
met a hare who had gone on a similar busi
ness, namely, to look after his cabbages.—
When the hedgehog caught sight of the
hare be bade.him a friendly " good-morn
ing!" But the hare, who in his own way
was a mighty fine gentleman, and held his
head very high, answered nothing to the
hedgehog's greeting, but said to ,the hedge
! hog, putting on thereby a' most scornful
mien, "Howhappens it then that thou art
strolling about here in the field so early -in,
the morning?" . •
" I'm taking a walk," said the hedgehog.
" Taking a walk!" laughed the hare,
" methinks thou mightest have used those
legs of thine for better things."
- This answer vexed the hedgehog hugely;
he could stand almost anything, but his legs
he didn't like to have spoken about, because
they were crooked by nature.
".Thou thinkest, perhaps," said the hedge
hog to the hare, " thou couldat do more
with thine own legs?"
"That's what I do think," said the bare.
"That depends upon the trial," quoth the
hedgehog. bet that if we run a race to
gether I beat thee hollow."
" That's quite laughable; " thou with th
crookedlegs!" said the bare; "but I e
nothing 'against it if thou art so bent upon
it. What's the bet?"
" A golden louis d'or and a bottle of bee
brandy!" said the hedgehog.
" Done," said the hare;
then it may come at once."
"Nay, there's no such hurry," said the
hedgehog; "I'm still quite hungry; I'll go
home and get a bit of breakfast first; with
in half an hour I'll be here again on the
With this the hedgehog went his way, for
the hare was also content.
On the way the hedgehog thought to him
self: " The hare trusts to his long legs, but
I'll fetch him for all that; he's a fine gen
tleman, to be sure, but still he's only a stn•
phi fellow, and pay he shall!?
Now when the hedgehog came to his house
he said to his wife: Wife, dress thyself in
My gear quickly, thou must go with me to
the field."
" What's all this about?" said the wife.
" I've bet the hare a golden lords d'or and
a bottle of brandy that I beat him in a race,
and thou must be by."
"0 my God! husband," began the wife
of the hedgehog to cry; " art thou foolish?
hast thou quite lost thine understanding?—
How enlist thou wish to run a race mith the
"I-fold-thy mouth, wife," said the hedge
" that's my businesst don't meddle I ,
with men's affairs! March! Dress thyself
in my clothes, and then come along."
What could the hedgehog's wife do? She
had to follow, whether or no. When they
were on the way together the hedgehog said
to his wife: " Now listen to what I have to
suy geest thou—on the long acre yonder
will be run our race. The hare runs in one
furrow and I in another, and we begin to
run up there. Now thou !last nothing else
to do than to take thy place here in the fur
row, and when the hare comes up the other
side thou must call out to him, 'l'm here
With this they had reached the field. The
hedgehog showed his wife her place, and
went np the furrow. When he got to the
upper end the bare was already there.
"Can we start?" said the hare.
"" Yes, indeed!" said the hedgehog.
"To it, then!" And with that each one
pi-teed himself in his furrow, the hare count
ed one, two, three, and away he went like
a stoup-wind down the field. The hedge
hog ran about three steps, and then ducked
down in the furrow and sat still.
" When the hare, on the full bound, came
to the lower end of the field the neighbor&
wife called out to hint, " I'm here already I"
The hare started, and wondered not a little;
he thought not 9therwise than that it was
the hedgehog hmself that ran out to meet
him, fur, as every one knows, the hedge
hos'e wife looks jtiat likeim-husband,
But the hare thought there was something
wrong-Omit all. this Another racet at It
againr..And away he went like a storm
wind; ad that lois ears lay flat on his hesd.
.Itut the hedgehog's wife staid quietly r ip her
place. 'When the hare came to the upper
end the hedgehog-called out to him, "I'ni
here already." But the hare, beSide him
self with rage, cried, "Another race! At
it again!"
"I'm quite willing," answered the hedge
hoe, "just as often as thou likest."t
So the hare ran three and seventy times,
and the hedehog held out. to the very end
With him. E very time the hare came either
below or above, the hedgehog or his wife
said, "I'm here alreadyl"
But the four end seventieth time the hare
chine no wore to the end. In the middle of
the field he fell to the earth and lay -dead
upon the 'spot.
Bo the hedgehog took the louis d'or and
thibottle of brandy he had won, called his
wife out of the furrow, and both went home
together; and if they are not dead are living
So it happened that on the- Buxtehude
heath the hedgehog ran the hare to death;
and since that time no hare has ever dream
ed of running a race with a Buxtehudo
But the moral of this story is, first, that
no one, however high and mighty he may
think himself, shall let it happen to him to
make merry over an humble man, even if
tie be a hedgehog; secondly, that it is advi
sable, when one marries, that he take a wife
out of, his own condition, and one who
looks just -tike himself. Ile, therefore, that
is a hedgehog must look to it that his wife
is also a hog—and so forth.
'TUE MYRnaty Ulf 41 OLD TWA"
[By an Occasional Correspondent of the Tribune.}
BAXIATOoA, July 21st.—" Who is `Did
Tom?'" asked Mrs. Spriggins.
I replied that I did not know, and asked
why she asked.
" Because," - she said, " When Mr. Sprig
gins and I are(sitttng 'on the piazza, every
little while Borne of his friends come up and
say that ` Old Tom' wants to see him, and
he gets up and goes off looking pleased, and
comes back with his face shinier than ever
and smelting of peppermint."
Several of the young ladies have asked
me if there is a spring away off on the far •
Piazza, for they see the gentlemen wiping'
their mouths when they come back from a
promenade there.
This morning the Sprigginses were down
to breakfast later than usivd, and there was
a difference in the order of their arrival.—
Usually Mr. Spriggins frisks in first, in a
sort of I-pay-for-this style, and Mrs. Sprig
gins, leading the little S priggins by the I
hand, follows with the grace and dignity of
a Christian mother conscious of trying to
do her duty and satisfied with the way tier
back hair's done up. But this morning
Mrs. Spriggins led the van with the injured
air of person who pays taxes and if; not
allowed to vote, and Mr. Spriggins followed
after with his head down on the floor as
though hunting for something he had lost;
and his hair was thinner than usual—looked
as though the moths, had got in it during
the night. And he:didn't* seem to want
anything for breakfi-ist but pickles; and
when MN.. Spriggins got through she didn't
wait for him as usual, but just clawed hold
of the little Spriggins and sailed out of the
loom like a seraph sliding down a Riverdale
hill on a shingle—you'd have thought she
was getting away from something catching.
"The fact-of it is, my boy,", (this is what
Mr. Spriggins said to me after breakfast,
confidentially,) " there's no manner of use
in those newspapers agoiug on and discuss
ing whether Old Tom Gin will intoxicate,

good nis t a.), of the boys got around yester
day and kept looking toward me, and I got
so confused after awhile that one of them
went home with me, and when we got about
where I thought the room was, he put in his
heat! to ask if Mrs. Spriggins lived there,
and the rest of him disappeared kind o' sud--
dint, as though something took hold of it.
And when he•came out lie said he thought
there must be a mistake somewhere, that
he'd accidentally stirred up the nest of a fe
male threshing machine, disturbed the old
bird while she was busy hatching, or some.'
thing. She's little, but she's amazing pow
erful, Mrs. Spriggins is, and she tho,ught it
was me she was yanking. I didnrt sleep
much last night, for stie'd a good deal to
say that she thought'd be interesting to me;
;and you mayn't have noticed it much, but
she's got a way of fixing a fellow's atten
tion when she sets out that'ssurprising, and
she gives you nothing but facts either. She
—Lon do t
is great on facts, Mrs.
,SpTiggins is."
Passing the barber's shUp just now I saw
Spriggins in there having his head sham
pooed; it's the third time he has gone Lino'
that today, and I guess he'll feel better by .
and by. You see the trouble with Sprig
gins is, that he can't hold much anyway,
and doesn't know when he's full. Most
men are muzzle-loiders, and a good deal
like guns; some can burn a good deal of
powder comfortablir, and others can't; some
take live drams without winking, and others
kick up a thundering fuss with one in them.
If a man doesn't know when be% got en
ough, and will drink, the better way is to
carry a " charger" in his pocket and load
by that; guessing by "fingers-full" won't
do. And then one wouldn't be safe unless
he evened the measure off every time with
al straight -edge. The better plan, after all,
is to do as 1 do—stick to Congress water,
the beverage which neither cheers nor ine
briates. Palling this, putting up at a 'Holly
tree coffee house strikes me as sensible; and
I notice that they are establishing these be
neficent institutions in all parts of the coun
try. '!'he ladies of Saratoga have not moved
in, the matter yet, but of course they'll 'lend
a hand to the good work in time, and

time I've got soaked and swathed and pack

play right under me. It's a good band, a
nice band, •but an elderly gentleman, with
his interest powerfully excited about sleep,
and able to travel, would get up and hire a
pair of horses and drive oft a hundred miles
or so on the Ballston road, to get away from

the Condition tental Europe.
The pieseut position of Imatters'in Europe
is not snch as to give much hope of a peace
ful future. The questions at issue, both po
litical and 'religions, become daily more
complicated, and their solution more diffi
cult. Old parties are breaking up, and there
iiverywhere that confusion that marks a
period of transition.
Yet, amidst all the tolmoil and tumult,
certain great tines of, division begin to be
distinctly seen. SloLwly but steadily all Eth
rope is gathering little two cutups—that Of
the Ultramontanes al d that of the Radicals.
Upon the standard o the one is inscribed
the supremacy of the Chula, on that of
the other the supremacy of the State. It, is
not that between Church and State there is
any necessary antagonism. Both may ex
ercise their true functions in perfect harmo
ny. but ; usurpation on one side has been
met by usurpation on the other; claims to
supreme authority by counter claims, sill
peace is no more possible. The liltramon
nmes have taken a position from which they
cannot recede; and the Radicals will stick
at nothing if they can thereby overthrow
the Papacy , . It is a war to the death; and
this the leaders on. both shies well know.
Between the two extre Ines there are now\
many small parties not yet ready to rank
themselves with either, hut inclining this
way or that, according to their prejudices,
or opinions, or fears. To the Church party
naturally turn the monarchists, the consa
ten inontly tuned awl oonvervetive, the rich,
who fear The communims and their theories
about properly, the religions, who dread
their infidelity, and all who cling to exist-
g institutions, or tlre hoond by the 9..stlei
actions of the lent. Many of them are not
Ultramontanes, nor even Roman Catholics,
but they uphold the Church of Rome be
cause they see in it the leading representa
tive of law and order and of Christianity,
mind the 4 chief bulwark against the demo
cratic spirit. To the State party turn as
naturallyl all of republican tendencies, the
defender free thought and speech, the
young add ardent, who t,, sieve the golden
age is yet to come, all who halo the Jesuits,
the infidels, who see in Rome Clink, chief
enemy, the opponents of all spiritual des
potism, and Protestants in general, who
think anything more tolerable than Papal
It is:not to be supposed that all of these
several classes have any clear conception of
their own position. They probably hope to
hold an intermediate place, and successfully
to oppose both extremes. They think to
uphold the Church, and yet preserve civil
liberty; and to uphold the State, and yet
leave the Church tree. But the lenders of
the two extremes have a clearer understand
ing of the real condition of affairs. . They
know that in such a strifo it is the bold, the
determined, those who enunciate a princi
ple without limitation or compromise, that
draw the masses of men after them. The
common mind does not appreciate nice dis
tinctions; it does not like qualifications and
refinements. In a popular leader, at great
crises, moderation is weakness. ..The wise
chiefs of the Church well understand this, 1
and they have taken ground in regard to 1
the relations of Church and State which are
intelligible to the dullest intellect. The 1
Pope, as . the head of the spiritual order,
and infallible in faith and morals, is the
head of all kings and rulers. In all cases 1
of disputed authority they must he obedient
to him.. The supremacy of the Church—
that is, of the Pope—must be recognized as
a first principle by all Christian nations.
On the other side, the Radical chiefs
enunciate their principles with equal bold
tess, simplicity, and`decision. The State is
' supreme; it knows no power above itself.-
1 If there be a Cod, the State is his true rep
, resentative. Religion, as a matter affecting
the public well-being, is wholly under its
control. It is to deleriniue what shall be
the rites Of worship, and what doctrines
may be kught, and who shall be the teach
ers. CWins to Divine authority are essen
tially ble, since they' conflict with
the civil 1 soverei gilly.
These are plain and intelligible principles;
'no man Can mistake them. If received and
acted upon, they cue up the ; Church. of Rome
and every Christian Church root and branch.
No religion can exist which is not divested
of its supernatural ci aracter and made sub
servient to political 4 iil social ends.
Such, in principle, ire the, lines of divi
sion. Every year thty. become more clearl
drawn. No one can 2 6 :til to . .sce *hat pr -
gress the tfliramontanes have made in LI
last decade, and how they are lowing all t
come into their camp. Their cry is RontA i
Cathollei-im or atheism; the supremacy of
the Pope or communisin and anarchy. To
multi+ tadesthis seems to he the only alter-
native; and the fear of one extreme I.lrives
them to the other. The same is the case
with the - Radicals. Their numbers are aug
menting, not so much thDough rational cun•
viction as through hatred of ecclesiastical
tyranny. Many are nut atheists, but if
compelled to choose hetween the slavish
submission demanded by Rome and no roll
gion at all, they prefer the latter. They
choose the absolutism of the State pallet
than that of the Church.
As regards numbers and organization, the
great advantage is on the side,,of the Ultra
montanes., This party is a great and coin-
pact body, a gigantic army, well officered,
acting in unity, and directed by one
Alia there is something far more potent
than numbers or drill; there is. a religious
energy—in some cases we may call it enthu
siasm—which shrinks from no obstacles,
and hesitates at no sacrifice. - There is also
a skill in playing on the superstitious fears
and the credulity of. the lower and ignorant
classes which no other party possesses,—
The intimate knowledge of the prejudices
and wishes of their flocks which the parish
priests have, and the entice subjection of
these priests to their bishops, give the Ul
trainonume episcopate gre.st power of pop
ular excitement, which it well knows how
to use.
The Radicals, on the 41ther band, are far
fewer in numbers, nor arc they united in
principles or action. Their leaders have no
official position, and, scattered in different
countries, have no center or head. In their
councils there is discord, and the proceed
ings of the International at its sessions have
not indicated much wisdom or prudence' on
the part of: its chiefs. A considerable part
• -of the people look upon them 'with terror.
In almost every point„when compared with
the Uttramontanes, they stand at great dis
advantage, Yet we should make a capital
mistake if we despised the power of- this
party:. Its strength lies in this—that, it is
the truest representative of' the spirit of the
age. Young Europe is mostly in its ranks.
It gathers to itself all who are dissatisfied
with (the 'present and will not renew the
past. There is a widespread feeling . that it
is poSsible for men 10 be much happier apt
More More prosperous thathey have been, an
that this can be effected by a reconstruction,
of society, the rebuilding it on new founds':
tions. To this class belong many of a phili
antluopie and speculative turn of mind; -
and to these must be added those who are
fond of change, those who love license and
hate restraint, the despisers of all religion
the vicious and profligate. Very unlike in,
character and purpose, nil agree in this—
that Christianity,. as repreSented by the
Church at Rome, is bringing more of evil
than good to Europe, and must be over
thrown, and the State, embodying other
principles, take its place. There is a type
of eivilizatioh better than anything which
Christianity has given, and this must be
brought in by statesmen, not,by priests.
Looking upon Europe as it presents itself
to day, we see many signs of an Ultramon
tane triumph. Evidently there is a strong
reaction going on, the proof of which may
be seen. in Spain, in France, and in Germa
ny. In Spain the 'Carlists , are gaining '
ground, andithe Republicans, disunited and
factions, can neither gain the confidence of
the people nor make war with vigor. Un
MaeNtalum, France is turning more and
more,biward the Church of Rome. As be
t wean the Republicans and Cellists in Spain,
it assumes a position of neutrality; but no
one can'doubt,that the spirit.of .the Admits-
istratioh is decidedly anti-republican. The
priests are very busy in arousing the reli
feeling of the peasantry by means of
apparitions and visions and 'tirades, .and
by large processions to holy places; and de
mocracy is denounced as the chief of sins,
and the restoration of legitimate authority
,held up as the only salvation fbr France.—
Germany is full of internal strife, "and Bis
marck, who has offended all the-Roman
Catholics, has by no means carried all the
Protestants with him. He has found that
the power of Rome is still very great, and
that its stubborn opposition tst his ecclesias

scents to be aware himself of his partial
failure, and to seek dismission from office.
Without speaking of Italy and Austria,
sin which signs of the same reaction maybe
noted, though less conspicuous, we conclude
that the Ultiamonotnes have some reason
for their hope of speedily becoming the
masters of Europe. But their triumph, if
they win it, will he illusive and short-lived.
The attempt to Make the Church of Rome
supreme must end by making her the slave
of the State. The tendency to democracy
is too strong to be overcome, and, sooner or
lter, it may be tate' a bloody religious war,
the supremacy of the people must be recog
nized as absolute. Rome is strong. in her
.organization; but this is no defense against
the undermining influences of unbelief, and
when the day of final contest comes, her

what they are pleased to call their princi

Beside their essential duplicity, one other
eature marks the proceedings of the Co
umbns Liberals. It is the cool assumption
bat the country is wild with a desire to
throw over the Republican party, and is
only, ,restrained by a fear that the Demo
crane patty may come into power. They
seem to , think that the enormous majority
given to Gen, Grant last year was the result
of a blind helplessness, and not of a posi
tive couvietion. We do not pretend that
every man who supports the Republican
party believes that it is perfection, and that
no other party can ever be its superior.- -
Political action is always, to a great extent,
a tatter of expediency. Most men who up
hold the Republican party do so only be
cause it -is,' on the whole, the better party.
But then the preference is a very strong one,
and rests on important facts. P. , ,was not it
mere wavering of the balance that gave the
Republican party three-quarters of a mill
ion majority and all the States hi the Union
but six. The gentlemen who get together

is l tired of the Republican party, and that

Al this applies to the new party move- 1

We are reminded of this just nr-

highly intelligent gardener,of this place, b

He takes the ground that the winter-kiln
of trees, which occurred So extensively th
past two seasons, is owing. to the attacks of
the red spider. In support of this view he
gives his exper'ence with a hedge of hem
lock spruce and r his charge. He found a
great many pla sin the hedge badly infest
ed With red spi ers, and set about disturb-1
big these flocks !rich, uninvited, had taken
to green past res, but not before consid
erable damage had been done. :In the se
vere winter which followed* was these spi
der-attacked trees that succumbed, the oth
ers not infested getting through without in
jury from the severest weather. ' Ho con
cludes therefore that it was the red spider,
anti net the severe winter, which destroyed
the trees.
Of course Mr.. - Newett is correct in his
conclusion in regard to these trees. Had
there been no red spiders on them in the
summer,. it is probable they would'nothave
died during the winter. On the other hand,
it is probably if there had been no severe
winter—no frost at all—weak as the trees
were from red spiders,they might baveatrug-
gled through. • Millions of trees in a thor
oughly Wild state, and far awls from gar
dens whence red spiders could emigrate,
were destroyed in the winter before the last
one, and it is scarcely likely all these suf
fered precisely as the hemlocks did, arodiyet
we believe - with Mr. liewett that If not *WI
red spiders, yet with something else many
of these trees suffered in the summer before,
for it is logical that where two or more trees
side by side are more or less Injured and
some not, it can only be by those injured
being . less vital than those which are saved;
and it is chiefly while trees are growing in
the season preceding the frost that vital in
juries ensue. •
Though there are undotibtedipmanyfirst
causes of injury before the final cause which ;
takes them oil, as well as this one of red
spiders, spiders, the essay will be of rest value in I
dressing attention to the rave es of red spi
ders on outdoor trees. In thi , respect it is

A beautiful and' high-spirited horse would
never allow n shoe to be put on his feet, I ,
without a resort to every species of power
and means to control him. At onetime he'
was nearly crippled by' being put in the

fettered; at /mother time one of the most i

aside everything but an anvil, anti came near
killing hirorAf with that, and finally was
brought back to the stable unshod. This
was his only defect; in all other respe is he

turned from Mexico, was passing, and be
ing made acquainted with the difficulty,' Alp-,
plied a complete remedy by the following
simple process: Ile took a cord about the
size of a common hedcord, put it in' the
mouth -of the horse like a bit, and tied it
tightly on the animal's head, passing his loft '
ear under the string not painfully tight ,_but
tight enough to keep the ear down and. the'
cord in 'ts place. This done he patted the
gmtly on the side of the head, and
' couturier 'ded him to follow; and instantly
the hori obeyed, perfectly subdued l tuad as
1 gentle a d obedient as a well-trained dog;
sufferin his feet to be lifted with entire im
punity, acting in all respects like an old
stager. That simple string thus tied made
him as docile and obedient as any one could
desire. The gentleman who thus-furnished
this exceedingly simple , means of subduing
a very dangerous propensity, intimated that
it is practiced in Mexico and South America
in the management of Wild horses. Be this
as it may,ire deserve the thanks of all
owners of such horses, and especially the
thanks of allthose whose business it may
be to shoe oilgroom ' the animal.—Commer
