To Cure Balking Horses.
Electricity is used in the latest
method of curing halky horses. It is.
applied by wires connected w'ith the bit ,-
and crupper of the stubborn animal
and a dry storage battery. Pres.sing;
the buiton completes the circuit. ^
Thomas Rodgers, a horsenian o£ Av
alon. Pa,, w'as arrested a few days ago
at the instance of the Western Penn
sylvania Society for the Prevention ol
I Cruelty to Animals. It 'svas said that
' his use of electricity in curing a balky^
horse was cruel. He explained that the,:
animal on which the electric current-
had been used w'as a blooded horse,^
■worth .S1,00ii if he could be induced to
pul!. Rodgers had consulted a vet(5r-,
inary and the electric arrangement
v,-as the result.
When the horse was hitched up W
spread his four legs and refused to,;
budge. The current was turned on f.nd;
the horse started off at a good giU%|
Every day for a week the horse re-,
ceived a lesson, and it apparently
made a permanent cure, as the ho;-^|
soon pulled without the use of Uio
Justice William Griscom decided
the electricity used, which was a thri>e^|'
volt current, w'as not cruci, and
discharged Mr. Rodgers.—New Ycr^

Amid the uuiver.sa! satisfaction which
snust inevitably follow the announce
ment from San Francisco that the Da-
, vis will case has been decided., It may
be well to supplement the brief press
dispatch -v.-ith a word of explanation
concerning this peculiar and popular
Western institution: Some forty years
ago a bright young man named Davis
went W’est and laid the foundations of
the Davis will case, which has been
one of the most flourishing and Import-
Rnt industries of the trans-Missouri re
gion, At first, like all who depart from
the beaten track, young Davis was
laughed at by the thoughtless and
shortsighted. But he W’as possessed of
indomitable courage and of uncommon
energy aud, year after year, despite the
scoffs of the lightminded, toiling often
in hunger and cold, he worked on and
on, preparing the ground and sowing
the corner-stones of the Davis will case.
In the fullness of time he died. Then
it was seen that he had builded better i
than bis nelshbnrs knew. Here anc
there a sorrowing widow, here and
'here a batch of sons a-'id daughters ana
first cousins and uncles appeared, and
»;eason by season, even as the wheat
blossoms out in full head, a brand new
regiment of lawyers came Into the
(scene. The courts ground and ground.
Decision followed decision, until from
Butte, Mont,, to the coast you could not
go anywhere in the dark without run
ning into large ripe sheaf of Judg-
Tiients in the Davis will case. The mag-
nitndi- of the ,growth may be gauged
from tlu' simple fact that the annual
report of the Northern Pacific road for
3S95 shows that 14.67 of the entire
freight revenue and 43.92 of the entire
]'asseuixor I'cvcnue were derive-d from
1 rauspi*rtiii.g la^\' books and affidavits
and decisions and law'yersand witness
es aud plaintiffs and defendants con
nected with the Davis will case.
