Horses in Stables. - A correspondent of the, Indiana Farmer writes: "I hfwe tried a variety of means to prevent horses pawing in the stable - among others, the strap and chain - but all failed. Becently I devised a plan, which has succeeded to my entiro satisfaction. I made a frame four feet long, and of sulïieient width to reach nearly to the top of the manger, from which I suspended it, allowing it to reach to -vithin about ten inches of the floor. I boarded up the sash or. frame, in order that ho could not get his fcet over the krwei bar, wliich was a round stick two inches in diameter. The act of pawing sets tho swing in motion, causing it to strike against the shius, which so disgusted my animal that he very soon gave it up entirely."
