road use in the country, with the true tandem harness, stable clothes are most suitable.
It may be well to state that the groom, when left alone to hold a tandem, should stand on the off side of the wheeler's head, so that, if necessary, he can use his left hand to hold the wheeler and his right to grasp the leader's reins. (The same method should be adopted when one man is left to hold a four.) When the owner is up, he should stand in front of and facing the leader, and either holding both reins lightly or standing with arms folded some few feet distant.
When the owner is driving without a passenger, the tailboard of the cart should be up, and his servant should sit beside him. The cocking cart. however, savours so much of a four-wheeler in its arrangement that the servant should always be carried on the hind seat or rumble. The lamps on any tandem cart should be removed in the daytime, unless they are provided with shutters or can be turned in the irons so as to show only a plain black surface.
