The Horse's Ancestors.
Lovers of horses ma- be delighted
with the distinguished genealogy which
geologists have completed for that fa
vored aninal. At least the names of
the htrse's ancestors look very distin
guished. Here is the list. with the geo
logical eras in which each lived, as ar
ranged by Professor W. N. Rice: The
line of descent begins with Hyracothe
riumi and Eohippus of the lower eocene
age. Then follow Protorohippus and
Orohippus of the middle eocene; Epi
hippus of the upper eocene; Mesohip
pus of the oligocene: Anchitherium of
the lower miocene: Parahippus, Proto
hippus and Pliohippus of the middle
and upper miocene, and finally Equus
of the pliocene and the quaternary,
from which the modern horse directly
descends. lipparlon and Hippidium
represented ancient side branches that
died without descendants.
\More Laughter, Less Suicides.
The physiological benefits of laughter
cannot be overestimated. It shakes up
the diaphragm. sets the pulses beating
to a lively measure. stimulates the
blood corpuscles, enlivens the brain
and sometimes produces dislocation of
the jaw when indulged in too heartily
by a man with a large mouth. Used
with discretion. laughter is as inspir
ing as a sea breeze, as refreshing as
an -August shower. Its moral effect is
beyond computation. It haz killed

rollicking roars of unbelief thanl any

INK THAT NEVER DRIES.
Care Used In Handling Fine Etchings
"One of the tirst things we have to
Impress upon uewcoiers in this busi

"is to take the utmost care in handling
prints for the simple reason that the
ink used in prining engravings and
etchin;;s practically never dries. Of
all thte miien whose works in this line
we hanile it can be safely said that
on the prints of only two of them

really dried. And you know it is a
long time since they were alive. It
has been our frequent experience to
have prints fully 200 years old show
signs that the ink still had some mois
ture in it, as we have learned to our
:ost in seeing them rubbed.
"An expert. whether he be a profes
slon:1l or amateur :ollector. can tell at
a glance that a print has had another
one pulled aeress it. for to his accus
tomed eyes the telltale marks of the
ink having been drawn across a blank
place on the paper are as clear as day
light. That is why we keep all of our
prints in boxes that just fit them so
that they must be lifted out squarely
with no chance of their being dragged
across the one below. It seems llke a
trifle. But it is just such trifles that
make or mar the sale of a really fine

THE SNOW BUNTING.
A Feathered Songster of the Arctio's
One of the most interesting of arctic
birds is the snow bunting or polar sing
ing bird. A native of Spitzbergen and
Nova Zem bia, its short, agreeable notes
sound doubly sweet wvhen heard in
these treeless wastes. The birds build
their nests in the mountain clefts
or under large rocks, lining them wvith
feathers and dow'n. In wvinter time
their plumage is warm and abundant
and especially fits themt for the rigor
of an arctic winter. During the breed
ing season and summer they live en
tirely on insects, particularly gnats.
while in winter they subsist on moss,
roots and seeds. Some winters less
rigorous than others they are in abun
dance, but at times famine compels
them to seek a more favorable climate,
and they are then seldom found until
they invariably reappear toward spring.
These buntings are distinguished by
a long claw on their hind toe, a struc
ture which really enables them to run
about with ease on the soft snow.
Of the other birds I may mention
puffins. divers, loons, dovekies, gulls,
skuas, burgom asters, kittiwakes. terns.
swans, geese, hawks, eagles and every
variety of ducks known to inhablit the
