MAN— AND HOW TO TREAT HIM.'
by A Horse.
When a man drops from sheer .exhaustion, or illness, promptly seize an end board or a cart stake and pound him on the head and. on the ribs. If this does not recuperate him, kick him violently m the belly. This treatment will restore him if persistently administered. If a man finds his load to heavy, and feels that it will seriously strain him to proceed, kick off a shaft or toothboard and knock him down, and hammer him thoroughly with the Board. This will give renewed energy, and he will make no more fuss. Butdd not on any account reduce the load. That would look too much like common sense or humanity, and he will probably never baulk, again .when overloaded. If a man refuses to drink when you offer him water, don^ give him any for two days. That will teach him to be thirsty at any time you find it convenient to attend to him. It is a good thing to ply the whip -frequently on a man who is at work. No matter if he is doing his best, hit him now and then on general principles,' and to prevent him taking any comfort. If his load is not heavy enough oblige him to go faster to make up for it. Work him hard enough to bring down the average life of man one- half, as is done with us the unfortunate horses. If no whip is handy use a club. Tie your man's head back m an unnatural position, with his eyes up to wards the sun. This will give him a fne appearance,' and prevent him from stumbling. Of course he will not be able to do much work m this position, but it makes him look smart, so it's all right. In wintej^^riHMß his clothing J^^^flfl^^|^^^^| cold 'J^^^^^^^^H^^^^^^H

These are Correct principles, I am sure, for I learned when a colt from nay' master, who treated air his horses on this plan.
