TIKMUH HORSE TRADERS.
fbelr DcTlnus Way of Making poor
Horse hell Well,
j The first Monday of every month Is
liorso-swnppltig day In Toum-see.
! There are thousands of men who gain
i their livelihood by their wits in this
business. The tricks of the TeuuesM-o
horse traders nre legion, and unless n
I man Is accustomed to hnr-.es it is folly
I for him to depend iiHin his ow n know j.
edge In dealing Willi tlie tri, ksters iti
1 the horse markets of the Stale.
When u Tennessee horse trader w ants
to make a true-pulling horse ..-ilk. so he
can purchase him at a low price, lie
mixes caiiiharldes and corrosive suPll
unite, and bribes the stable Imy to
bat ho the horse's shoulder w til Ihe mix
ture, tine of the greatest fraud-, is lo
make a good horse appear lame. The
professional trader takes a single hair
from the tall, puts It through the eye of
a needle, lifts the front leg. and presses
the skill bet won the outer ami ml. I, lie
tendons. Then he shoves (he needle
through, cuts off the hair at each end
and Ids the foot down. The horse goes
lame within twenty minutes. When he
desires to make n horse siand by his
food aud not eat It, he greases the front
(colli and tlie roof of the mouth with
beef tallow, and the horse will not eat
until its mouth is washed out.
A horse Is made to appear badly
foundered by tlie fastening of a tine
w ire tightly around Its fetlock, between
the foot and heel. The wire is never
left on over nine hours, or the horse
would become permanently lame.
Many men buy nice looking nnlnials.
but by the time they get the horses
home tl Hit these to ho badly allllcied
with the heaves. The trader has sim
ply lo fore,, half a pound of small shot
Into a hmsc's sloinaeli to disguise the
heaves. A small quantity of moiled
butter poured into the ear of a horse
will make the owner think the horse
has (he glanders.
When n horse goes dead lame III one
shoulder Ihe defect Is always disguised
by a sin. liar lameness in the other
shoulder. This Is done by taking off
the shoe and inserting a Ih'iiu between
It and the foot.
A lame hoise Is nerved lo appear at
Its host by a small incision about half
way from the knee to the Joint on the
outside of the log. At Ihe back part of
the shiuboiic Is a small while tendon
w hich Is cut off aud the external wound
Is closed with u silich. The horse will
then walk on the hardest pavement
and not limp. White horses are benull
II cd with black spots often by Ihe ap
plication of powdered lime ii ml litharge
lied together. When 11 professional
trainer llnds a man who wauls a hand
some horse he often produces a star In
lis forehead by spreading warm pitch
on a piece of coarse towel of Just the
size of the star and applying It to the
part shaved. The pitch Is left on ror
three days, and thou Is washed away
with elixir of vitroil mill! the wound is
well. The hair that grows out Is w hile.
An (dil horse Is made to appear young
by filing dow li the teeth ami removing
the dark markings with a hot Iron. The
depressions over Its eyes are removed
by puncturing tlie skin over the cavi
ties and tilling them with air from tho

Is Iho liydrocyclc, which Is built on the
