The Horse Objected.
Luther Springer, of Hancock, Me., owns a horse, whose days of usefulness being over, he hired a man to kill.
The man taking an axe started to lead the horse into the woods, but after going some distance the animal suddenly attacked the would be slayer and throwing him down trampled upon him and injured him so badly that it is feared he will not recover.
At last accounts the horse’s prospects of living were much better than the man’s.
