For Sale is a Full Page from the Ilustrated Sporting and Dramatic News October 23rd 1909, showing the following 6 Illustrations Drawn by Lionel Edwards, called "The Wire Question."
a- "Ware Wire !" (the marked variety.) Pulling up at the sight of the only too familiar danger signal. b- "A Nasty Accident" ! A result of bad farming, namely, a forgotten or hidden strand of wire in a long uncut and overgrown fence. c- A Capped Wire Fence. A perfectly safe jump, but one which the majority avoid, so great is their fear of wire. d- The nervous rider and lover of gaps runs almost as much danger as the most determined of "Thrusters" for gaps are very often "mended" with barb wire. e- In Australia they have taught their horses to jump wire, (even a single strand.) f- This sfetch is dedicated to the gentleman to be found in almost every hunt, who, while always holding forth on the "wire question," has his own park, drive, paddocks, etc., fenced with wire. Although, it must be admitted, the hunt seldom crosses his land, he is nevertheless a shocking example to his poorer neighbours and should take to heart the old saying that example is better than precept !
