A ** Pasetoi” Peat. —One of the most surprising feats on the part of a hon(e, says the Manawatu Times, which we have heard' of for some considerable time came under our notice a few days since. A foal, not eighteen months old, was confined in a stable in which there was a window with two panes of glass, each IBin by 30 in. The imprisoned animal evidently pined after its liberty, and was determined to have it, for it made a clear spring through the glass and landed outside unhmt, and that without in the slightest injuring the dividing sash between the two panes. As.the foal is a : very large one, a glance at it and its mode of exit would lead most people to the belief that the feat it had performed was almost as imposssble as for a camel to go through the eye of a needle. Nevertheless, it is so, and in proof we can produce half a dozen witnesses. As the window was four feet from the ground, ■ and the'jump must have been a standing one, the owner of the beast sees visions of yet possessing the champion hurdle racer of the colony.
