Says the HAWERA Star:-
Mr E.C. HORNER, of PATEA, had a strange experience the other evening. With his wife and another lady he had been to ALTON to a dance, and when he commenced the return journey home in the evening found his horse, contrary to usual experience, a "jibber." By alternate punishment and coaxing, and after much delay, and the need for the ladies to walk a considerable distance over a muddy road, he reached the metal, and then the horse travelled home at a rattling pace. Arrived home, Mr HORNER found he had been given a strange horse in place of his own, and inquiries showed that the substitute had never been in harness previously. A lucky escape, one would think, from a perilous predicament.
