The remarkable feature of the opera?

which a sixteen-hand draught horse, ?
weighing twelve hundred pounds, was 1
so secured that during the operation, !
which lasted only eight minutes, the ,
animal moved not a hair's-breadth.
The table is solid oak, and rests on a '
stout platform about two feet high, lly ;

Th(! operation, which is known us
cuncon tcnotomy, was first proposed
by Prof. La fosse to abolish lame?
ness arising from born* spavin. It re?
quires the division of the internal or
cuncon branch of tho tendon of the
flexor metatarsi. The tendon that gave
tho trouble is a stout one. a branch of
another tendon. It starts from tho
anterior portion of the bock and runs
across diagtnally downward to where
the curb generally occurs.
The doctor first made an incision an
inch long, and a probe-pointed instru?
ment was Inserted and tho toiid^pn
raised and cut, which gave instant, re?
lief. The tendon lay in a groove and
was readily found. A bony tumor was
growing tinder the tendon, making the
tension on the tendon so great that tho
animal could not put its foot to tho

THE EARTH'S RULERS.

Tho President, of the United states
I would'pcrhaps bo a competent person to
answer as to the relative ranks of child
. magistrates, as he takes his place among
j the rulers of the earth as an equal. Tho
I usual precedency Is alphabetical. In
I the lasl century there was no republic
j in America before the Failed Slates,
I and many in Europe, as the Seven
i United Province; in Holland, the Swiss
I Canton-, the seventy five cities of the
[ German i in pi re, the republic of the king
I dorn of Poland, thai, of he Knights of
I St. John at Malta, tho republic of Ven
: ice, thai of Genoa, that of llagusa, etc.
? Tho Doye of Venice used the crown of
I tho kingdom of Cyprus, he of Genoa
; that of the kingdom of Corsica. Km
j peror. as in I he ease of Russia, gives no
, precedence over older States. Tho rO
I publics of Europe wen-.swept, away by
? the results of tho ophemeral French rc
| public one and indivisible, an historical
? fact to which little attention has been
given. King Henry VIJ I. and Queen
Elizabeth constantly referred to tho
, commonweal! Iis and Republics. The
j lord protector, Oliver Cromwell, did not
yield to any Prince in Europe. The
supposed antagonism between inonareh
Ism and republicanism now bo big
! put forward has been largely
worked up in the present day. An in?
cident of the question of monarchy is
the religious capacity of the Lord's an?
ointed; but many Kings are not so
anointed. In the respect of the scionco
of politics, this is subsidiary, and has
no direct connection with the functions
of chief magistrate. In framing the
constitution of the United States the
founders did not provide a King, be?
cause it WBS not possible: but the Presi?
dent and executive have a stronger pre?
rogative than is po-sossod byQueeu Vic?
When the rules of court etiquette
j were drawn up there were no republics
to speak of, or, if there were any, tlioy
I were quite ignored by tho mighty pot 011
I tales of the da; : and so I think no place
urns assigned to thochiofsof such States
by lliosu who indited these rules. p,ut
Binco the days of tho Stuarts in England
and Uioso of Louis XIV. In Franco the
state of things in tills respect has been
considerably altered, and il would seem
strango to see the President of the
United stau s of America, the President
of the Swiss confederation and the Pres?
ident ol the French republic silling at
liny royal table "below the salt" and
