Mr. Madison Honeycutt lives at
Lock Hole Creek, in Stanly county
One day last week, a horse died in
his stable. The horse was 27 years
old. The qaeer part "about it is,
that the horse waa.put in the stable
by Mr. Honeycutt 26J years ago,
when the animal was 6 months oi1
and from that iime until it was car
ried out dead, it had never left that
stable. Never or ce did the horse
get outside the walls of the stable,

stable and nevei Est its foot on
ground outside, - Our informant

Honevcutts only reason was .that
he "never needed the hoi S3 and Lad
