his father how they fastened such
shoes onto a horse's foot, and even

why (lie nails did not hurt the
foot. Right there the fattier caught
an idea and planed hie excursion.
The following day he took his son
to a'blackamh h shop, and. as is
nearly always so. found the smithy
putting shoes on a horse. The
young lad watched tin* prooes from
beginning to end, thoroughly en-
joyed it and is now able to tell just
how it is done and why it does not'
hurt the hors*.
And the father enjoyed it too—
probably because he saw the lesson
it had bean to the hoy So he con-
tinued the excursion. From Hie
blacksmith shop he took the lad
to the grist mill and there showed
him how the corn was dumped
