American Horses Astonish Filipinos
A young officer of the Uuited States
army, uow in Manila, in a letter to a
friend in Washington speaks about the
amazement caused by our horses among
the Filipinos. The officer says: "I
think the horses we are getting here are
having us great an influence on the
natives as oar ballets. The native
e do apt reach half ac high as' our I
average size horse, and the natives
dtnud aghast at the sight of the Kentucky
and Oregon product." He adds
that the horses are doing very well in
the island, and that great improvements
have been made in
of the animals across the water.
Two years ago it was considered almost
impossible that horses would last an
oceau voyage across the Pacific, and
mly a few mouths ago it was regarded
as impossible to transport any without
unloading them. But within the last
few months the government has transported
the horses from the Pacific coast
to Manila without unloading them at
Hawaii or elsewhere, and the horses
havo actually gained in weight ou the
trip, and have lauded in the best of
trim. New York Mail and Express.

livery For Automobile.
The kind of livery best suited to the
New York autnmible Is yet undecided.
Automobile fashions came first from
the French. English use of the automobile
followed and the English makers
set out to Invent a fashion of their
own. They did this "with such complete
success that the two styles are
quite different The English liveries
axe noticeable chiefly for the elaborate
frogglag added by the Loado tailors.
Both styles of liveries are used
of Our i
vantage in numbers rather on the side
of the French, later purchasers of
automobiles have, on the other hand,
shown a preference for the English
styles, so the question is now complicated
to a degree unpleasant to owners
of automobiles, of which every detail
from the color of tha vehicle to tho
driver's hat is a matter of importance.
This confusion is not likely to last
much longer, however. An Is

owners to come to some
