By Dr. C. E. Page, New York. Fowler & Wells.

This is a treatise, of 150 octavo pages, and, in spite of its alliterative title, more suggestive of a sensational heading in a daily paper than of a solidly-written book, seems to be a very good essay on the general treatment of the horse. It does not pretend to be an exhaustive treatise, but is rather an essay on certain features of horse management, and fully as much as one would expect to get in an essay at a low price. It is good as far as it goes, and valuable to horse lovers.
