Description

The island of Japan, the home of the Jinrikishaw and the?as conveyances for persons of rank or wealth, have new horses, and the Japs know little or nothing of horses. When the war with Russia [became] inevitable, they bought up a large number of horses for their artillery, cavalry and..., but clever as the people are, and [quick] to learn, their utter ignorance concering the handling of horses and mules led to [many] serious and many ludricous incidents Frederick Villiers the war artist, taught them many a trick before Port Arthur, to their great [advantage] and gratitude. Our [picture] shows him in the act of subduing an unruly horse...half a dozen Japanese...had struggled in vain. In a few hours they [will have] learned this art,...and...improved upon the western ways. [Description is incomplete due to damage to the original object]
