Educating the Horse.—Professor Theodore Lichtwark, well known throughout New Zealand, will gi?e an exhibition of horse-breaking at Messrs Friedlander Bros' Horpe Bazaar, West Street, on Friday and Saturday evenings next. It may be remembered that the Professor gave a similar exhibition in Ashburton some thirteen years ago, when his system of horse education met with very favourable notice in these columns. Professor Theodore Lichtwark is the son of Professor C. F. Lichtwark (now deceased), working in conjunction with his father in the elaboration , of the system of horse training adopted. Together they published a treatise entitled " Educating the Horse " in which a full description of their system is set forth. An appendix to this work contains copies of testimonials as to the efficicy of the system from many of the leading horse owners of the colony and other authorities on the subject, including Messrs J. C. N. Grigg, Longbeach, C. S. Murray Aynsley (then at Methven), Alfred Saunders, M.H.E., F. Lawry, M.H.R., and Edward Saunders (Huntsman of Ashburton hounds). The Professor and his system have received appreciative and flattering notices from nearly every newspaper of standing iv this colony. Unsportsmanlike Sport.—At the annual meeting of the Waitaki and Waimate Acclimatisation Society, reference was made to the use of cylinders by sportsmen, ' and it was decided that the matter be referred to the conference of Acclimatisation Societies in Wellington, with a request that it be considered with a view to compelling the discontinuance of the practice. The question of the use of pea rifles and fowling pieces by boys under a certain age was considered at length, and this subject also was referred to the conference for consideration. The police authorities in Christchurch look upon Allandale, who was sentenced to ten years' imprisonment with hard labour on Wednesday for his Bhare in the Amberley burglary, as the cleverest criminal in Australasia. They say that his ingenuity and ability are very remarkable, and that in his way he is a man whose talents are hardly surpassed in any part of the world. His daring is equal to his talents, and there is practically no limit to the boldness of his schemes and the cunning devices he invents in attempting to carry them out and in evading the police.
