Mr. Thurston was a man of great energy of character, and built
up a large business in heavy trucking in South Boston and Boston,
Mass., in which he accumulated a competency. It was interesting,
and often collected quite a company to see him manage with his sim-
ple voice his team, consisting of ten or more horses, moving a large
boiler or heavy machinery. He understood his horses and they
seemed to understand him perfectly. He never used the whip, but
when he spoke the word, not with harshness, but in an encouraging,
friendly tone, every animal in the long team would put forth his full
strength in a determined and steady effort to move the load — no
jerking or kicking out — if the load moved, it went smoothly, and
if it did not, they were ready for another try.
