' I bought him of Johnson, the lidrse
and he said he Wti - S dammed by
Flora Temple, sired by Black Hawk,
and desired by all the horAe jockeys in
the state. I wish they had got him.
He was fourteen and a half hands
high, and one finger over. His color
was dun, and his purchaser was about
in that condition also.
- Re was slightly sprung in the knees
and his tail had once been cut,. so that .
it stood on end, and looked mite Ilke
bunch of straw nailed on the• end of' al
log than anything else.
But he was rather a_fine looking
horse, and- the man w rranted him
kind. But It was a very poor kind I
afterwards found.
I{e said he could mak nsmileinside
of 2:35 without an effort. It was two
hours and thirty-five min ites he meant,
unless he intended to deceive nte. But
he could make a mile inside of that
time, if ho exerted himself and didn't
get one of his fits on him.
He was a peculiar horse, and was
subject to a variety of complaints that
would have killed an ordinary animal ;
but heseemed to stand them well enough.
The firSt night I had, him, I put him
in the stable and gave him a feed. The
next morning my wife remarked that
she didn't sleep a particle on account of
some locomotive or other out on' the
railraid, that was puffing and blowing
ail night, trying to make headway. I
heard it, too, and it struck me as queer
that the, engine couldn't get past that
I went out to see about it. It wasn't
a locomOtive—it- was my horse. He
was breathing, and sighing unlike any
other horse I ever heard before,', and I
was alarmed about him. I was sorely
Afraid he would blow the whole end of
the stam.—u*_._
.nn,l.ached him and
took him arourai to J mamma: - - -
Johnson seemed surprised, but said
he only, had a slightattack of the heaves.
l'Mosi all homes has it. It'll pass off,"
said he; so I drove him home, and
created an impression in the town that
the wind was freshening for a hurricane.
About half way up the main street he
came to a dead halt. I Clicked my
tongue for him to go on. ! He never
budged. I touched him with the whip.
He began backing, and backed the
buggy right upon the pavement and
through a plate glass window, worth
two hundred dollars.
Theh he started down the street like
lightning, and ran over two boys,
breaking their legs and crippling them
for life. I won't mention the expenses-
I was put to, as you wouldn't believe
me if I was to give the figures.
I was so busy attending court for two
weeks that I hadn't a chance to use
him •, at the end of that time his lower
'Jaw had swelled up until you couldn't
tell whether he'd got his head on upside
down or not. -
So I drove him over to Johnson to see
what was the matter with him.
Johnson seemed to feel hurt that the
animal should behave so. But he said
only a little touch of the glanders.
"It don't hurt a boss a bit to have
'em now and then—it does 'em good—
but it'll piss off," said Johnson.
So I was more hopeful, and drove
home again without any serious acci
dent, except that the horse shied at a
chicken in the road, and took the
off byrunning the buggy into the fence.
Still I didn't blame him much, for Mr.
Johnson told me that it was good for a
horse to be timid—"it's a sign of pure
,The glanders didn't affect his appe
tite any.. He ate more oats and bay
than would run an ordinary livery
stable, and not satisfied with that, he
chewed the feed box all up, and triedto
gnaw down a yellow pine partition.
John said it was a good thing for a
horse to be a hearty feeder.
I never owned a horse before, and I
was a little set up about it. Sol thought
I would drive my wife and family in
town to church the following Sunday.
He went along firstrate until ho came
M front of Ferguson's house. r. Fer
guson is jealous of my having horse,
and our girls don't speak to th Fergu
son girls, because they saidlre were
"stuck up" about our horse.
When this animal arrived here he
suddenly began to stagger from side to
side and bolt around like a drunken
man, butting his head into tree-boxes
and one thing or another. At last he
fell over the bank at the side of the
road, turned three or four somersaults,
dragged the carriage after him, and then
he lay stretcned out there apparently
as dead as any dummy.
The women had on their best clothes,
and they were completely, spoiled,
while Augusta sprained her wrist so
thatshe couldn't dos, stitch of work for
a month. And the whole Ferguson
family stood at the window andstai led.
I walked two miles to get Johnson to
come and look at the horse. He came
and appeared as if he was provoked at
the horse for his conduct. Then he
stoopeddown and stuck a knife into
his neck and let out a barrel or two of
blood, and the horse gradually got bet
"It's nothing but a slight attack of
blind staggers," said Mr. Johnson.
"Every boss has got to have it. It's
just like the measles in children. It'll
pass oil' and he'll be the better for it."
• We' got home by easy stages to• the
stable, and there he staid for three
weeks, until he seemed better,- except
that he still had•a touch of the heaves
and the distemper. •
Shortly afterwards I had to drive
over to Delaware City to see anul, and
I gave Johnson ten dollars to go with
me, in ease the horse came to pieces on
the road, or anything of a serious _na
ture happened,
. .
We stated 'at daybreak, and had
progresse.about a mile and a half by
dinner tin e, when the horse suddenly
stopped sl art, and would net budge atr
.ine - il, • - , 1 ,
I sugge ' that the barbed ' steed had
'forgot something and wanted to - go
'back for IL Sohn said:
"'No; it,is only one of his little tricks:
MoSt every boss has 'some. eccentricity
or other.- just let him alone for a
:minute and he'll get over it."
We waited full three-quarters of an
hour. Then Johnson got out and -un
dertook to pat him on 'the neck, and
the horse got: frightened and kicked
until he got one leg through the dasher
and couldn't get it out again. -
I asked Mr. Johnson what-lie thought
we- had better do now.i a said :
"It is all.right. All redly - good hos
ses kick. - I wouldn't gi a cent for an
animalthat hadn't pluck enough to
kick , . It iS a sign that he feels his oats."
'Ho we loosed his leg and got, in, and
before we had time to pick up, the lines
he gave a jerk and started down street
at lightning speed—lightning for him,
that is to say, about fourtuiles an hour—
and ran the buggy into a ditch, and
then tried to jump over a fence, but
- failed miserably, and got another blind
stagger on hina„and lay there till nine
o'clock - that night.
I didn't get to see the - Man at -Dela
ware City, and in fact haVen'tseen him
since. Johnson said it was a good
thing anyhow, for they had the fever
:down there, and I ought to consider it
it providential thing that the horse was
taken just as he was. If we had gone
to Delaware City we might haye-been
dead men.
It Is singular how Johnson. looks on
the bright side of things when that
1 horse is concerned.
Then I thought that perhaps after ail
I had better sell the horse, he was so
much trouble, so I advertised him. The
man who came to buy him was not so
hopeful as Johnson. He said the horse
was spavined, foun ered and distem
pered. He had t e glanders, and
heaves, and blind s aggers, and ring
bone, and a numbe f other infirmities
that I don't care to ention. He said
the horse was too ha,d in the mouth,
...,.o tins man I wasn't much Ltt —s 't
_ ...
driving a bargain, but still if la • would
take the horse off my hands for any
reasonable sum, he might' b ve him.
He said he wouldn't assume t e risk of
driving him for .less than ten dollars.
So I gave him that sum and lie took
him away. But he hadn't go!ne more
than a mile before the horsegot another
blind stagger on him and lalki down,
and gasped, stretched his legs out, and
then died, and broke for hors heaven
for all I know.
Johnson was called in, but he couldn't.
do anything for him. He only said he
considered it a good thing.
"Fdr the hoss, you know, must have
stiffered a good deal, and now he's out
of his misery, and as you're a kind
hearted man, Mr. Quill, you ought to
be glad," he'added. ,
So I was, but didn't feel exultant
when Johnson handed in a bill for one
hundred dollars for professionalservices.
It didn't seem fair. But I never had
any luck with horses anyhow, and I
don't care to speculate again.

The following is the Globe report of
Mi. Blaine's speech, delivered In the
House of Representatives, June 23d : •
Mn. BLAINE. The fact that the bonds
of the United States are exempt from
State and municipal taxation has creat
ed a wide spread discontent among the
people, and the belief'-prevails quite
generally that if this' exemption could
be removed the local burdens• of the
tax-payer would be immediately and
essentially lightened.' Many' persons
assert this belief from a spirit of mis
cheivous demagogueism, and mat y do
so-from sine2re and conscientious con
viction. To the hitter class I , l 'otild
beg to submit sonic facts and stigges
tions which'may greatiy modify, if not
entirely change their conclusions.l
The total gold-bearing debt of the
United States, the conversion of seven
thirties complete, amounts to a little
more than $2,100,000,000 ; of this sum
total something over $200,000,000 draw
but live per cent, interest, a 1 rate not
sufficiently high to' provotte hostility or
suggest the necessity of taxation. In
deed it may be safely said that there has
never been any Popular taisatisfaction
with regard to the non-taxation of the
five per cents., it4teing agreed by com
mon consent that such a rate of interest
was not unreasonble on a loan negotiat
ed at guch a time . •
The agitation may, therefore, be re
garded as substar tially confined to the,
six per cent, g6ld-bearing bonds, which
amount to the large aggregate of $1,900,-
000,000. Many people honestly but
thoughtlessly believe that if this class
of bonds could be taxed byjoeal au
thority the whole vast volu le • repre
sented by them Would at one - be added
, i
to the list of the assessors. ' t is my
purpose to show very briefly that this
conclusion is totally unfound d and ;er
roneous, and that if the right of local
taxation existed in its fullest and amp
lest extent, but aiminor fraction of the
total amount of bonds could ,by any
possibility be subjected to any more lo
cal tax than theyalready pay.
The entire amppnt of these bonds as
I have stated, is $1,900,000,000 ; and of
this total, by the hest and most careful
estimates attaina de, at least six hun
dred and fifty m 1 lion are now held in
Europe. This amount could not there
ore be reached by any system of local
axation, however extended, thorough
nd searching. Deducting the amount
bus held abroad we find thee amount
held at, home is reduced to 81,250,000,-
000. .
' But, of this $1,250,00000 more than
one third, or to speak with accuracy,
about $425,000,000 are held by the na
tional banks, and no form of property
in the whole United‘Statespaysso large
a tax both local and general as these
banks. The-stock depositories, and the
deposits which I these .425,900,000 0 I
bonds represent pay full loctiVtax at the
highest rate besides a national tax
averaging about two and a half per
cent. .-Were the power of local taxa
tion made specific and absolute on these
bonds, they could not yield ra dollar
more than is now realized in that direc
tion. It thus follows that the 1,250,000,-
000'0 bonds in this country, presump
tively escaping local taxation, must be
redticed by the amount represented by
the banks, and hence we find the aggre
gate falls to 825,000,000.
The reduction, however, goes still
further, for it must - be remembered that
the savings banks have invested their
deposits in these the amount
of 175,000 ; 000. In some States by local
13 " *1.4 , dorooitv of savings banks are
exempt from taxation, ac an theyntive
to thrift and economy. In other States
wherb these deposits are taxed, as in
Colecticut, it has been held by judic
ial tr eision that the fact of their invest
ment,in United States bonds does not
exempt thmi front taxation. _Renee
these 175,000.000, thus invested in sav
ings bank deposits, are either locally
taxable, or if exempt it is by State law
and not virtue of the general exemp
tion of the bonds. It thus follows that
the 825,000,000 must be further reduced
by this sum of 175,000,000, leaving; but
630,000,000 not already embraced with
in the scope of •docal taxation. But
there is still a further reduction of 30,-
000,000 held by the , Life Insurance
Companies andilield on Precisely the
same terms as the deposits of savings
banks—that is,r, r either taxed locally, or
if exempt, detuting the exemption from
the local law. The surplus earnings
anti reserves cl these life insurance
companies invested to the extent, of
thirty millions in United .States bonds
are just as open to taxation when in
vested in that form as though they
were in State or railroad securities. -
Deductingthese thirty millions we find
the untaxed bolds reduced to 620,000,-
And still there is irtather large reduc
tion for the lire and marine insurance
companies and the annuity and trust_
companies and other corporations which ,
cannot readily be classed, hold in -' the
aggregate over 125,000,000 of bonds, and
these are held on precisely the' same
basis as those held by the savings banks
and life insurance companies. These
numerous corporations have their cap
ital stock, their reserves and their sur
plus earnings Invested in ' Government
bonds to the extcht, named, and they
are in this form just as open to taxa
tion and are actually - taxed just as
much as though they were invested in
any other form of security. Making
the deduction of this 125,000,000wefind
remaining but 495,000,000 of the six per
cent, gold-bearing bonds that are not
already practically subjected to local
taxation, Allowing for the possibility
that 100,000,000 of the five per cents, are
held instead of six per cents, in all the
channels of investment 1 have named,
anti it follows that at the outside figures
there are to-day in the whole country
less than
~600,000,000 of Government
sixes, not fully subjected to the power
of local taxation. And these six hun
dred millions arc rapidly growing less
as the various eorporated institutions I
have named invest their funds .more
and more in the bonds. These institu
tions desire a security that is of stdady
value, .not liable to great finctuaion,
and at'all times convertible into mon
ey ;and hence they seek GoVernment
bond's in preference to any other form
of investment. The high premium on
the bonds induces individuals to part
with them and hence they are readily
transferred t u corporate ownership,
where they become in effect at ()nee lia
ble to local taxation and are no longer
obnoxious to the charge of evading or
escaping their just :sliare of municipal
burden. In the hands of individuals.,
the bonds may be concealed, but in the
possessipn of corporations concealment
is necessarily impossible.
If these statistical statements needed
any verification it would be supplied by
an examination of the income returns
• recentl3.f made under, ;nth and publish
ed in ail the large cities of the country,
disclosing the fact that the amount of
bonds held by the wealthy men of the
country has been continually growing
less, just as they have been absorbed by
foreign purchase and by corporate in
vestment. 'The correctness of these in
come returns in reference to the invest.
ment ill bonds will be accepted even by
the incredulous and the interest of those
making them was to exaggerate rather
:than depreciate the respective 411101,111U3

held by them. - Instead - then of 1,600,-
000,000 of these bonds running- - free of
taxation it is clear that less than 600,-
000,000 are open to that charge—less
than one-third of the whole - amount.—

it ? On its face the prospect might be
fair - and inviting, but in, practice it
would assuredly prove delusive and de-,
ceptive.- The trouble would be that the
holders of the bonds could not be found!
No form of property is so easily con
cealed, none 'so readily transferred back •
and forth none so difficult to trace to -
actual ownership. Walleye hundreds
of millions of State bonds, city bonds,
and railroad securities in tiats country,
and yet every one knows that it is only
an infinitesimal proportion-of this vast
investment that'is ever represented on
the. books of assessors and tax collectors.
As a per tinent illustration, I might cite
the case of the bonds•of my own State,
of which there are over five millions in
existence to day, largely held as a favor
ite investment by the citizens of Maine.
Of - this - whole sum I am safe in saying
that scarcely a dollar is found on the
lists of any assessor
,in the. State. Jond,
yet the facility for concealing owner
ship in national bonds is far greater;
than in any other form of security, and'
the proportion in the hands of individ
uals that would escape the -assessment'
of local } taxes - may be inferred with
reasonable certainty from the analogies
I have suggested, and which are famil
iar to all who have given the least at
tention to the subject. Indeed, I' ven
ture to assert with confidence that if the
power of local taxation of these bonds
were fully aceorded to day, the tax lists 7
of our cities and towns would not be in
creased on anaverage one per cent.—'
Many of these-who to-day may be am
bitious of parading their . bonds when
protected by What is deemed an offen
sive exemption, would suddenly have
none were the power of taxation - appli
ed to them. Indeed, the utter failure
to realize anything from this source, if
the power to test it were granted, would_
in the end create more dissatisfaction
than that exdaiption, which in theory
is offensive but in practice is absolutely
of no consequence whatever.
But it will be asked, " Why don't you
tax the bonds L by national authority 2"
Granted, it will be urged, that thepow
, et. of local taxation would be nugatory
and valuelessi. i" that affords all the
stronger reason for taxing the bonds by
direct Congressional \enactment." In
answer to this
.I have only to say that a
tax levied directly upon the coupon is
simply an
.abatement of interest, and
that result can be reached in a_ better
and more satisfactory and more honor
able way.. The determination mani
fested by this Congress - and b the
great Republican Convention at hica
go to maintain the national faith has
already worked a large appreciation in
the value of the bonds, and with_ the
strengthening of our cred t it,. which :re
sult:o'mm an honest and high toned
pulley, we will speedily be able to fund
our debt on a lower scale of interest,'
running down to five, four and a half.
and ultimately four per cent,. per an
num. Should we proceed, however in
viotuti 'n of good faith and of the uni
form firactice of civilized nations, to
hold back part of the stipulated inter
elst instead of effecting an honorable ex
change of bonds to the mutual advan
tage' of the Government and of the
public creditor, we should only punish
ourselves, produce calamitous results in
the business world, and permantntly
injure, our national fame. •
• To withhold one Per i cent. of thedn
terest Under the plea of a national ,tax
this year might be • foll Owed by 'with
holding twO per cent. next year and
the three per cent. the year ensuing.—
To enter upon - such a policy Would pro
duce alarm at home and wide-spread
distrust abroad, for every man bolding
a bond would have to count his rate of
interest not on what was stipulated in
the contract, but on what might be the
will and caprice of Congress in' its an;-'
nual withholding of a portion of th 4
interest under the pretence Of a tax.—
Under such a policy our bonds, would
be returned upon us from _ Europe with
pallid like rapidity, and the drain upon
srnr specie ,resources would produce an
immediate and disasttous crisis in mon
etary circes. If even one, half 9f our.
boodS hel I in Europe Were Suddenly
sent home, it would drain us of 256,000,-
000 of specie, and the financial_: distress
throughotit the length and' breadth, of
the land wou/dhe beyond the power of
calculation or imagination,"-;And yet
that is the precise result involved if we
should follow the policy advocated by
those who urge tax.. the coupon
and withhold one or• two perent. of
the interest. Let us reject suc coup
t i f
sels, and adhere to the .steady, s raight /
forward course indicated alike poli
cy and good faith. And let u never;
forget that in the language of the Chi-i
cago platform, " the best policy to di
minish our burden of debt is to so im
prove our 'credit that capitalists wilt
seek to loan us money at lower rates of
interest thi we now pay, and must
continue to ay so long as repudiation,
either Marti I or total, open or covert, is
/ I
threatened r suspecte.d.'!_
A gentleman who is rather given to
story-telling relates the following :
When Iwas a young man I spent
several yes atlthe South, residing for
a while at Port 'Hudson, on the Miss
issippi River, A great deal of litiga
tiOn was going on there about that time,
and it was not alwaysoan easy matterto
obtain a jury. One day I was sum
moned to act in that capacity, and re
paired to the court to get excused.
On my name being called I informed
his Honor, the Judge, that I was not a
free-holder, and therefore not qualified
to serve.
" 'Where do you reside ?" inquired
the Judge. .
" r nui :+topping for the time being at
Port Hudson."
" You board at the hotelll presume?"
LtalZe my meals there' but I ' have
rooms in another, part where I
1O( ge."
so you keep bachelor'sliall ?"
r." . •
How long,have you lived in that
Al•out six months."
. think you are qualified," g"ravely
retnart;ed the Judge ; " for I have never
known ;t man jo keep bachelor's hall
the leno I) of time you name wbo _had
not diri enough in his room to make
freellotder ! The Court does not
excuse him."
The hearts of relatives are like gar
deiv, wherein they tire not only flowers,
but weed , :; ttml as the former must be
walvrea and cherished, se the latter
must be crushed and nipped. If noth
ing hut dowti and showers of promise
should fall upon the heart, though they
seem to tend to the cherishing of the
grad's, yet the weeds Of corruption will
Ise apt to grow up "with them, and in
the end to choke them, unless they are
nipped and blasted' by the severity of
throateninge.,—Owen. -
