TO QUIETEN A HORSE. Tennyson once arrived- at Hasle mere Station' carrying a heavy parcel of books; and his own carriage not having arrived to meet him, he was glad to accept the offer of a lift. Going up the steep hills to Black down, Tennyson, with his character istic consideration for animals, sug gested that they and the books were heavy for the pony to drag. They therefore got out and walked for some distance in front of the trap, until suddenly it was discover ed that the books had dropped out. Tennyson was asked to stand by the pony's head while its owner went back for the ~,ooks. These were found a hundred lards or more down the hill, and on his return he found the pony, had been restive. Knowing its dislike to strangers, he wondered how it had been kept quiet, and was astonished to find that this had been effectually accom plished by holding a watch close to the animal's ear. . 1959.
