Why doesn't a french horn have a spit valve?

To get the spit and condensation out of the French Horn slide each valve out of their position in the horn and shake the contents out. Then turn the french horn around until all the water has come out. Then put each valve back in the correct place. For the key valves hold down each key while taking each valve out. That is how you get the "spit" out of a French Horn.

To remove spit the easiest way is to breath in with your mouth on the mouthpiece as hard as you can. This seems a little unsanitary, but it is the most efficient way, because certain times you will not have more than half a second of a break, and if you have a spittish-tone, you will want to try to get the spit out from inside your mouthpiece.
