Manage (Man"age) (?), n.
[F. manège, It. maneggio, fr. maneggiare to manage, fr. L.manushand. Perhaps somewhat influenced by F. ménage housekeeping, OF. mesnage, akin to E. mansion. See Manual, and cf. Manege.]

The handling or government of anything, but esp. of a horse; management; administration. See Manege. [Obs.] "Young men, in the conduct and manage of actions, embrace more than they can hold." Bacon. "Down, down I come; like glistering Phaëthon" "Wanting the manage of unruly jades." Shak. "The unlucky manage of this fatal brawl." Shak.
^ This word, in its limited sense of management of a horse, has been displaced by manege; in its more general meaning, by management.
