In Ireland they have no such agree- nents, btit ii is customary that the lyer let ihe horse be exaniitied by veterinarian within 48 hours aud it her party submits himself to his ecisioti. Without this-precaution the{ eal is irrevocable in all cases. In the United Slates conditions re- semble ihose in Canada as far as sjie- citic laws is concerned. In the larg- est American horse market at the' Chicago stock yards, the auction sales; of horses are regulated by certain de-j Unite rules. When a horse is brought; in for sale a sign slitting how horso is to be sold is immediately posed ou the auctioneer's rostrum, There are of these signs, viz.: I, sound: serviceably sound; ;j, wind aud work; work only; legs go: ti. at the baiter. What theso terms mean is that pvery peciive buyer should familiarize him-! self with. Ail horses must be ineil and tried hy purchaser as soon as bought, ami must be tried and ac- cepted on the premises during the day of sale, as all guarantees on j horses expire- with iliat day, and on! delivery of tbe horse.

Furthermore, H may in almost all canes lake i' T granted that the price aalied will be one or more "fifty-dollars" (ban expected.

If on the other hand the difference be not so great as to ex- clude the agreement, then simply state the amount you are willing to pay, which the dealer frequently will refuse with a more or simu- lated astonishment: in these cases it, is sometimes good policy to .sMcl: to your offer, while starting to walU off your way; that might bo termed more in accordance with remains, and after some display of diplomacy the difference is, settled by dividing it. j if after a thorough inspection and mustering you feel convinced thattli hortJe will suit your pnrposo well, al- ways remember tbat it is far hotter to pay n little too much for a good and useful animal than 10 get a "bargain" on a doubtful oiie. as the latter gen- erally loses In value, while the form- er increases; After buying- a horse one should re- menVher the importance of feeding it carefully after its transfer to your own stable to avoid sickness and dan- gerous colicB.
