About 5 feet high, had (when taken up)
the appearance of being shod all round,
has a few saddle marks on his back and
is inclined to carry his tail somewhat to
one side. Said horse is adjudged to be
IS or 20 years old, trots well, and is ve
ry mischievous appraised at jg25. I
have before advertised said horse at the
Court-house in Greenville and other
public places in the county, and no own
er having come for him, I deem it ne
cessary to have him advertised in the
Free Press. The owner of said horse
is requested to come forward, pay char

to be troubled with him any longer.
