ELASTIC SHOES FOR HORSES. Mn A. M. Wood, the inventor of the well-known composition woodite, has been trying her inventive powers again, this time in horse-shoes, which she has desired and succeeded in making elastic. The new shoe is composed of an elastic composition called whaleite (also an invention of Mrs Wood). It wears well, prevents-the horse slipping on ice or very smooth or slippery streets, and does not jar the legs of the animal as the common iron shoe does. The whaleite shoe proves more advantageous in another way. It can be cut to fit the hoof, instead of the hoof being cut to fit it, and by its use the natural growth or expansion of the boof is scarcely in the slightest degree checked, as it always is to a very considerable extent when the iron shoe is worn.
