Wilson, Winslow, which had earned for ibselt' a bad reputation. Efforts had been made to break the colt m, but without success, The Professor went through a similar coarse of operations to that of the previous evening, with the result that t'ne animal soon permitted itself to be handled and ridden. The Lichtwark Patent Mouthing Gear was then applied, and the animal was m a very 6hort space of time taught to " load " and to come when called. The Professor then asked one of the bystanders to come into the ring, and the horse followed this gentleman* when called, as readily as he followed the Professor. Professor Lichfcwark remains for some littlo time m this County, and will give free lectures at some of the smaller towns m the district.
