THE MODERN SIDESADDLE.
"WJiy xt Is That a Woman Is Safer on
Horseback Than a Man Is.
About the year 1830, by an accidental
circumstance, women's riding was revo
lutionized. An Englishman made a
wager to ride a steeplechase on a side
Bad die. A preliminary trial showed
him, I imagine, the. rashness of the
attempt. So ' to minimize the danger
by enabling him to sit safely, Mr. Fitz
hardinge Oldacre, I - think, invented
the third pommel. Looking back one
wonders how it was that women had not
lone before invented it .for themselves
under stress of urgent need. . But one'
generation followed another and no one
seems to have thought of it.. . Once in
vented," however, it was immediately
adopted, and a , three . pommeled side
saddle came into general use. .This in
vention at once reinstated women's rid
ing as a fine art by producing a new de
parture under improved conditions... For,
the grip obtainable by its means gives
the greatest . possible security in ex-
- change for the least possible expenditure
of force. - - . '
- Saddles of this kind were cumbrous
and very heavy, but during the follow
ing fifty years the weight of construc-
$jon was gradually reduced, and little
feylittle every . unnecessary item was
cut away, till in course of time the three
pommeled saddle evolved into the long,
light hunting saddle actually in use at
present. It differs in several ways from
its prototype. In this . modern saddle
the long narrow cantle is built oyer a
sort of tunnel, which takes in the horse's
withers and allows the seat of the saddle
1 to lie flat; while the old fashioned seat
sloped up and tilted the rider's knee
with much the same effect as riding up
All traces of the, outer pommel have
disappeared, leaving a free space where
no resistance is necessary.- Finally, the
left hand pommel is placed high up the
thigh, where the grip is strongest, the
pressure having formerly been placed
just above the knee, so that a shorter
. stirup was necessary. Now, such greater
leverage . led to . an exaggeration of
movement, which prevented all rhythm,
for obviously the closer the rider can
sit "the more possibility there wrill be of
being "one" with the horse, of riding so
as to blend with his action, of, so to
speak, following the pattern of his
-.. In the modern saddle all modifications
tend to diminish effort and by greater
aecurity to enable the rider to sit very
still. . Strength of seat seems to me to
be the result, roughly speaking, or three
grips, caused by the opposing pressure
of the two legs against tne pommels.
Of these grips, the first results from the
downward pressure of the whole length,
of the right thigh and the upward press
ure of the left. The second is the grip,
just above the knee, of the right thigh
against the pommel, involving the press
tire of the leg just above the ankle on
the saddle flap below; This grip, is
counterbalanced by the left leg's inward
pressure at the knee. . And, third, the
nook back of the right leg oyer tne pom
mel as opposed to the pressure of the
" stirrup foot. "-'
Moreover, by sitting far: back the
leverage of these three, grips is. in
creased, and the consequent distribution
of the weight makes the balance right.
The legs must be immovable on the
saddle, but above the waist the body
sways and gives ,to" the horse's .action,
and from constant habit a good rider
adjusts the balance almost by instinct,
and carries on the horse's movements in
a multiplicity of tiny curves which pass
imperceptibly from one step to another
without any jerk or abruptness of move

New Style of Coon Hunting.
The inhabitants of the mountains west
of this place are great coon, hunters.
Some .. nights ago Bill Benchoff and
Colonel Yingling started out with half
a dozen dogs and two boys to carry the
pine torches. A coon was raised on the
. -east side of the Monterey, and the dogs
chased it down through a deep and
rough ravine and up a rocky spur on
- the west. After a climb of an hour
Benchoff and Yingling at last came up
with the dogs. They had run the coon
into a tree and were snarling and bark
ing around underneath. The, boys
whirled the torches and Benchoff banged
away at what fee thought was the coon.
but no animal tumbled. . " "
.Yingling in the meantime had been
tearing paper and trying to ignite a
match, but it was damp and would only
splutter. Benchoff was deriding him
when suddenly a great ball of fire illu
minated space. Yingling had succeeded
In igniting his match and was emptying
a roman candle into the tree. . . -
The first ball struck a branch and
burst and the second- -hit the coon
plumb center.. Its fur caught fire
and with, a yell it came -rolling down
among the angry dogs. w The . third ball
revealed two more coons in the tree, and
BenchofFs rifle dropped one, while Ying
ling, with the last ball in, the candle, hit
the limb on which the. third .coon clung
with pitiful terror, and it lost its hold
- and -tumbled into the mouths of the
They got six more coons that night
with the help of Yingling's candles, and
now the colonel regularly - shoots the
Tomans and. Benchoff shoots the gun.
They are the most successful coon hunt
ers in all the region.-! Gettysburg (Pa,)
