    Shows a old horseman gesturing towards his horse who obediently brings him his hat. The caption reads: 'Old Mr. B. found out that the oil of Rhodium system is all nonsense, and has been initiated by Mr Rarey. Whenever he gets split, and loses his hat [...], he just says to his horse, "Fetch it, Old Boy!" and the thing is done!'. This is a reference to John S Rarey's system of taming horses.
