Allowed to set foot on iti and lmmedlatelT on
the arrival of the grott people, tbe starters for
the first race took their pieces at the poet.
The Arab Is the most reasonable bone In tbe
world) the moment he undersunde what Is
expected of him, be accommodates himself to
circumstances In the most well-bred way, and
however mettlesome ho may be, does not fidget,
bolt, or caper, as hit European cosilu Is apt
to do at a sUttlDg post. We had ampVop
pOTtunlty, therefore, for studying the points of
the horses. They were Ore Arabs of the ordi

heads well set on, with deep jaws, broad fore

gether, a look of gamenese that showed It was,
at any rate, no plebeian animal yon hid before
you. If tbo horses were nnllko what one sees
on an English course, the riders were still more
so. Moat of them were bare-head od and bare
footed, and had nothing on extent a shirt and
a pair of short, bsggy trousers. One vtnerablo
looklrg old fellow, however, sported a yery

about a dosen races that day. Ue certainly
won elx or eeven.
Tbo moment tbo raco was over, tbo uext
starters were put up, snd so on, with breath
less rapidity, until at last we came to a race
which I was particularly anxious to leo. All
the races np to this, with one exception, had
been for Arab horses exclusively, the exception
being raco for horses of European origin,
owned by resldcUU in the province, which bad
been run by three very ordinary-looking nags.
Now came a race fur all comers, end I was cu
rious to lea how the Arab wonld come out
against the European, Aa far aa that Issue
went, It was a very hollow affair. Three
French horses started, among them the winner
of the last mentioned race, and two Arabs.
But thoogh the Arabs made all the running at
first they were soon collared and passed, and
came In, one of tbem "nowhere," tho other
several lencths behind the last of the French'
men. In fact, the popular notion about tho
speed of tbe Arab courser Is, I think, erroneoua.
Great speed Isnothlsstrongpolnt tho chances
are that on any ordinary raco-courao tbe best
Arab In the world wonld be beaten easily by a
very eecond-rale English raceborse.

The following account Is now going tho

The municipal wine rault of Droucn Is tbo
most celebrated In all Germany. One section,
called the Rose, from thwbronte bas-relief of
roees over uv contains mo ismous uosenwem,
which Is now two centuries andahaU old.
There, six large casks of Rhino wine, Jobsn
nlsbcrg, and as many of nochelmer, wero
placed in 1034. In the adjacent rarta of tho
same division of the cellar are twelve largo
casus Dca nog ue names ot tue Aposues, ana
containing wines not less precious, but not so
sged by a few years j the wine bearing tbo
name of Judas is considered tbe best. Tbo
other parts of tho cellar aro occupied with
wines of a subsequent growth.
Br decrees, as a few bottles of Rosenwcln aro
drawn otf, tbe cask a are filled up lib Apostlo
wine, ana mat wun some sort sua younger,
and so on, In such a manner that tbe different
casks are always kept nearly full. A single

value. A cask of wine containing 1,000 bot

sum at compound Interest, with tbe expense
or cellar see, a bottle would positively cost
10,895,232fr. and a glass, or eighth part of a
bottle, about l,301,90fr.
Tbe Rosen w tin and Apostle wines aro never
sold but to citizens of Bremen. Tbo burgo
masters have alone permission to draw a lew
bottles, and to send tbem as presents to sover-
clngs. A citizen of Bremen may, In caao of
serious uuiobb, procure a uuuiu ui iMirt uu ins
obtaining the certificate of his doctor snd the
consent of tbe municipal council. A poor In
habitant of Bremen may also obtain a bottle
gratis, after having fulfilled certain formalities.
A cltlzon has also tbe right of demanding a
