Ancient Stories of Their Care and
Training Are Mere Fables.
So far as we know, the Arabian 1
breeders have no patented system of
training their horses different from
those prevailing among peoples of a
similar degree of civilization. Natu.
rally the lack of pasture results in
young Arabian horses being fed a con
siderable quantity of barley and, so the
story goes at least, a not inconsider

palm. fresh and dried, by way of suc
The colts are broken, usually bare
backed, at two or three years old.
Their subsequent handling is much like
that of all other horses, with perhaps
the difference that as early in life as
possible the young animals are accus
tomed to doing without water for in
creasing periods of time in order to ac
custom them later on to the scarcity of
liquids in desert journeys.
The ancient stories about the Arab
steed being kissed and bawled over by
the sheik's whole family, kept in the
living tent and foaled on the best silk
rugs are picturesque fables containing
about the same measure of truth as the
one which dates the pedigrees of Ara
bian horses back to the mares owned In
Biblical times by King Solomon.
THEY SAW THE GHOST.
Easy to Recognize the Woman Who
Had Haunted the Place.
"A certain lady and her family,"
says Sir Mountstuart Grant-Duff In
his "Diary," "hired a place in Scotland
which was haunted by the ghost of a
woman, who was to be seen constantly
at night wandering through the rooms
and passages. When the family arriv
ed the lady was much struck with the
place and said, 'I must have been here
before, for I know this place so well.
only there ought to be two rooms here,
and there is only one.'
"The agent replied that within a few
weeks the owner had caused a parti
tion to be taken down and made the
two rooms into one. Still the lady was
puzzled at her knowledge of the place
till she remembered that It was a
house she used to go to in her dreams.
"Well, some time passed, and the
agent was up at the house again, when
the -lady complained that one part of
the contract had not been fulfilled.
They had hired a house and a ghost
for the summer, and no ghost had she

The Fate of the Oneida.
One of the most extraordinary ca
tastrophies that have befallen vessels
of the United States destroyed the
sloop of war Oneida in 1869. She was
bound homeward wi , a jolly ship's
company eager to see wives and sweet
hearts and native land once more,
when not far out of port she was
struck by the British steamer Bombay
coming In. The stem of the Bombay
cut off the stern of the Oneida. The
ship was sinking rapidly, and guns of
distress were immediately fired, but
the ~bay steamed on her way and
left t. .s vessel to her doom. She went
down, and all but one or two of her
crew were drowned. The captain of
the Bombay gave no other reason for
his conduct than that he had Lady
Eyre, the wife of a distinguished Brit
ish satrap, on board and did not wish
to disturb her nerves with scenes of
shipwreck. Hie was mobbed when he
reached Yokohama, dismissed from the
service, socially tabojoed from that time
on and died in disgrace a year or two
The Obstacles to Evil.
In the constitution of our nature a
limit has been fixed to the triumph of
evil. Falsity in theory is everywhere
confronted by the facts which present
themselves to every man's observation.
A lie has no power to change the or
dinances of God. Every day discloses
its utter worthlessness until It fades
away from our recollection and Is num

The indissoluble connection which our
Creator has established between vice
and misery tends also continually to
arrest the progress of evil and to ren

Frigga was called the "Venus of the

The Russians a:-e in the habit of
using the following prayer for their
horses before going into action: "And
for these also. 0 Lord, the humble
beasts who with us bear the burden
and htat of the day, and offer their
guileless lives for the well-being of
their countries, we supplicate thy
great tenderness of heart, for thou
