BRUTAL TREATMENT OF HORSES. ••When Tr.i-u. ■.- raaaj to Ki i Eealaad turn Bag- - lHlid he was :i sHiagc. :lln| .,11 -v,. :ifr.iid , ! I ...i. He got a lot f ■!— ITS.

He grew half b bv blind through the darkness and bis feet grew long, a His attendant used simply to throw his food in to a him and left him severely alone. n "One day they put a halter 011 biin. and a man h he mounted on horsehack stood at the stable door, c They opened the stable door, ami as soon as be t was led out another liorseuiau was behind with a stock whip. with which they thrashed him and drove r him for IMl ten miles along ihe road, footsore ami a of weary.

I The above shows that the bad. old barbarous customs obtained in New Zealand many years ago I just as they lid in England, when savage horses i were made, not born. It is quite rare now to see t really savage horse, and this is sufficient proof 1 that quiet but tiMn handling, such as better education has dictated, will almo-t always suffice to es- I tahli*h a mans control over his charge. That a horses heart might be broken by punishment on 1 the tap of privation is likely enough, but he would ■ never again be the same horse. A stock ease in Kngland is Vatican, which they deliberately blinded f on Hambleton, where he was located, to render him less dangerous to any one who approached him. I well j remember seeing him in thosc. days, but the stock i he sired after the operation did no good at all. — "The Special Commissioner." *
