A subject on which the indigna
tion of humane people la often arous
ed Is the inhumanity shown by certain
drivers to horsea on our.sireets. While
It Is a pertnent remark that cruelty
to children ta- not Infrequent, and -Its
prevention more worthy of the efforts
of philanthropists than anything that
can be done for animals, yet It is
often apparent that a little wholesome
restraint and education would be ben
eflclal to the interest ot the faithful
nd oft abused horse.
An Instance Is'eiven thus: A by-
- Btander was watching a team of horses
drawing a heavily loaded wood wagon
up a -hill. Aa the splendid animals
were pulling evenly and with all their
strength, and making good headway
he admired their devotion to duty and
willingnea to serve. But the driver ex
pressed his lack of appreciation by fin
ally striking one of them witha heavy
piece ot wood, without any apparent
need or reason.
Another driver has been noticed for
years to continually urge his horsea
to a fast?r gait by jerking the lines.
A series of short, sharp Jerks on
horse's mouth may keep his head up
and add speed and sprlghtllness, . but.
the means with equal Justice applied to
the man would at once provoke serious
. Other drivers seek to make up for the
time lost In a chat with the servant
girl or to accomplish more in a given
time than Is fairly possible, by rush
lhg their teams at dangerous speed
through the streets and particularly
down stceo hills. To drive a horse
rapidly down hill Indicates ignorance,
recklessness and cruelty. Plank, roads
quickly enough stove up a horse with
good treatment, but racing down hill
la wanton waste of a horse's useful
ness. 't ONE WOMAN'S WAT.
-At first thought It is a relief to know !
that the woman who married a Chinese
t& Seattle a few weeks ago has been
released frcm the heathen by divorce.
That she was granted a neat alimony
Is also approved. The exhibition in the
court room of dried rats, which she
claimed her husband tried to make her
eat, was a species of evidence at once
repulsive and effective. But If all re
ports are true, the Chinese was the
victim, and the woman only an adven
turess uf such abandon that she dared
even this scandalous manner of obtain
ing money under false pretenses. She
is said to have boldly declared that
this, as also two former marriages,
were entered into solely for financial
gain. While no one pities here celes-
tal husband, who, having more money
than sesnw of propriety, evidently
thought be was making a shrewd Tan
kcet hit, yet, the decree was probably
aa much .a relief to him as to the
shameless woman who won his cash.
If the disappointed husband, the suc
cessful but grossly criminal woman.
and the persons who Issued the license
and performed the ceremony were sen
tenced to a diet of dried rats and en
forced labor, perhaps Justice would be
better served. -
