A GIGANTIC HORSE.
j - - !
A Queer Monster Thnt lias Existed in ]
England for Over 1,000 Wars.
About two miles to tbo north of
Lamlxiirrno, in Berkshire, England, is
White Horse hill, on the summit of
which there is a large Roman entrench?
ment called Ufflngton castle. A little
below the eastleon tho steep side of the
hill facing the northwest is thoj figure
of a gigantic white horse, tho dimen?
sions of which extend over about an
acre of ground. Its head, neck, body
and tail consist of one white line, ;?s
does also each of its four legs. The out- j
lines of this monstrous specimen oft the |
genus equu are formed by cutting
tranches in the chalk, of which the hill !
is mainly composed, tho ditches j being
2 or 5 feet in depth and about 10 feet
wide. The chalk of the trench being
of a beautiful white color, and the sur?
rounding turf the greenest of green, the
figure of tho horse can bo plainly seen
at a distance of twelve miles, and oven
farther, it is said, if the sun Is shining
A white horse is known to have been
the standard of the Saxons, and some
hove supposed that this monster em?
blematic figure was made by Hengist,
one of the Saxon kings. Mr. Wise, an
author who has written much of the
celebrated white horse of Berkshire,
brings several arguments to prove that
this ligure was mndo under order of Al?
fred during the reign of Ethelrcd, his
brother, and that the figure is a monu?
ment to a victory over tho Danes in
the year S71. Other well known writers
are of the opinion that tho wonderful
white horso is a natural freak, one of
nature's oddest oddities. Aslunead
Burton thinks that tho early tribes
rioted the outlines of a horse on the
hillside and gradually worked it into
its present graceful symmetry.
However this may be, it has been a
custom since time out of memory for
the neighboring peasants to assemble on
a certain day of each year, usually about
midsummer, to clear away the weeds
from the White Horse and trim the
edges of the trench so as to preserve
the color and shape. This task is
known for miles around as "Scouring
A largo mound at the foot of White
Horse Hill and almost directly under
tho '?Horse'' is called Dragon Hill.
Here, according to tradition. St. George
killed the dragon. On tho top of this
mound, or ??barrow," there is a space
about fifty yards square upon which
not a spear of grass has grown during
the last thousand years. The peasants
say that the grass cannot grow on no
count of the ground having been poi?
soned with the dragon's blood at the
time St. George gave him the fatal
wound.?St. Louis Republic
"Down on the Nail."
This is a well known half slang
phrase/used for a rash payment. Of
its history I cannot speak, but I con?
fess to feeling startled When I found it,
as it seems to me, in a parliamentary
deed of King Robert the Bruce. By
indenture dated July 15, 132(3 (Scots
Acts I, 470). a tenth penny was cove?
nanted for, payable to the king. On
his part ho agreed not to exact certain
prises and carnages unless he was pass?
ing through the realm, after the cus?
tom of his predecessor, Alexander III,
'?for which prises and carriages full
payment should he made 6upcr un
guem." fThe words are, "Pro quibus
prisiset cariagiis plena fiat soluciosuper
I am aware of the classical use of
the phrase "in unguem," or "ad un?
guem," signifying "to a nicety," but it
does not seem to apply here. At the
same time the corresponding French
phrase "payer rubis sur Tonglo"' may
make this doubtful. Just below the
passage cited occurs another, in Which
payment is tobe made "in manu."
Both iu my opinion refer to ready
.money, and I do not hesitate to trans?
late "super unguem" "down on the
nail." Hitherto I have supposed the
nail to be a ligure of speech for the
counter on which the coin was told.
Apparently this is erroneous, as it is
clearly the fingernail which is referred
to.?Notes and Queries.
Old Fashioned Parsons.
The old fashioned country parsons of
the English church lived more on the
social level of the farmers and yeomen
than of the squires, though in many
cases they were men of culture. The
Rev. S. Baring-Gould tells an anecdote
of a parson of tins class who wan in?
vited to spend two days with a great
squire some miles from the parsonage.
He went, stayed Ids allotted time
and disappeared. Two days later the
lady of the house, happening to go into
the servants' hall in the evening, was
amazed to find her late guest there.
After he had finished his visit upstairs
ho had accepted tho invitation of the
butler to spend another two days be?
"Like Persephone, madam," he said
apologetically, "half my time above,
half in the nether world."?Youth's
Pianos, which have long been con?

all sorts of devices for accompaniment
have been used previously. One teacher

drowned tho girls' voices.

ceive it at all out of sympathy for tht

Side by side are we stiil, though a shadow
Between us doth fall:

The Sensation of Hanging.
Lord Ponsonby, who was hanged by
a mob in Paris in 171)1 and cut down
beforo life was extinct, proceeded to
give an account of his sensations on re?
turning to consciousness. He could
not have actually been suspended in
raid air more than a few seconds, and
yet in that brief space of time all the
events of his past life passed through
his mind. It is true that his life up to
that dato had not been a very event?
ful one, being only 19 years of age;
but every past sensation was renewed
in ail its freshness. It is also remark?
able that he did not at the time expe?
rience any sensation of fear; while,
he added, his was an essentially ner?
vous temperament. This remarkable
mental power of calling" up the past in
moments of suspended animation I
have heard frequently mentioned.
One was tho case of C > nit Zichy, in
the revolution of 1S4H, in Vienna. He
was caught by the savage mob, hung
like Lorn Ponsonby in the middle of

dragoons charged down and cut the
cords as he was swinging in the air.
He fell to the ground and was suppos?
ed to be dead; but his recovery was a
very different matter from Lord Pou
sonby'Sj for he suffered agonies, and
for ten days had four men constantly
with him. He described exactly tho
Same sensations as Lord Ponsonby;
the scroll of what was a much longer
life was unrolled, even the smallest
detail rushed back on-his memory; he
had the same fearlessness at the mo?
ment, but ho felt all the horror of the
