a History repeats itself in horse taming. it
d appears, as well ou in other matters. Mr.
y Rarey and Cruiser have met with their
o match in M. Carries aend Trocadero. Tro
at cadero, son of Monarque and Antooia, has
ro of late exhibited symptoms of the moat
y earfnul ferocity ; "and sabot two montbe
ago," according to Le Sporalt, M. Aamont
imet M. Carries," who offered to tame the
t animal. M. Aumont, having inquired
Swhther the means employed would not be
edrugs or such violence as might ijure the
horse or render him still more furious, and
ir having received an assurance that nothing ,
of the kind would be used, consented;
.. and, at a time agreed upon, a visit was
paid to the stud at Victot-Poutfol, and the
l experiment began. Tha first thing was to
enter the borse-box. This M. Carries did,
in in presence of M. Anmoat and all the
t "stable," who expected to see him eaten
up. An exciting " duel" ensued; the horse a
Srushing, time after time, with open moth
and with ferocious neighing, at M. Carries,
Swho merely dodged him, by raied move
d moente, aside, as the toreador dodges the
Sbull. After ten of these attacks so met
" the animal soddenly stopped to contem
plate the audacious individual who braved
him in this manner; and was at once seized
with the nervous trembling which comes
oovers r a wrestler contending with an adver
sary againse t whom his usual methods have f
been tried and failed. Troeadero was sub
dued And M. Carries took advantage of
the horse's stupor to put a saddle and bri
dle upon him, after which Trocadero sub
u mitted like a lamb to have his fore-feet

more ado. The dodging process of M. Car- I

ward if the tamer were to meet with a horse
less susceptible of stupefaction than Troea
dero appears to be. The question sugges
ted by all these horse-taming facts, how
ever, is whether they could not be rendered
altogether unnecessary by care taken in the
original training, and whether, as regards
the trainer and the methods he adopts to
wards bis four legged pupil, the gist of the
whole matter does not lie in what has been
said by a French authority : " If the
trainer is brutal, thecolt will become fierce,
violent and distrustfol ; if he knows how to
gain the animal's confltence, a good under
standing will be soon established." It cer
tainly seems that, if a horse in his years of
discretion, or iather maturity, and of con
flrmed viciousneses, can be tamed so readily
by a resolute but ger tile master, there ought
to be little or no difficulty in training him
up, during foalhood, like Captain Cuttle's
fig-tree, in the way he should go,, so that
when he is old he will net depart from it.
CROSS EXAMINING WTITNESSES.
A quick and ready wit is ant almost indie
peusable endowment ina good cross-examinung
counsel. but the quickest and readiest some
times fida his match. "Oh, you say this
gentleman was about fifty-five," said Canning
to a pert young woman in the witness box, "and C
I suppose now you consider yourself a pret-y J
good judge i,f ages. eb Ah, just so. Well, a
now., ow old should you take me to bet" f
"Judging by your appearance, air," repiled the
witness, ' shbould take you to be about sixty G
By your question I should suppose yon were
about sixteen." Whether counsel had any
more 1'estiora for this lady is not recorded.
"Now,' began another learned gentleman,
rising slowly from among his professienal
brethren, and looking very profound, "now, at
are you prepared to swear thae this mare was
three years old '" "Swear?" returned the
stableman in the box. "yes, Ill swear she ei
was." "And pray sir, upon what authority are
you prepared to swear it ?" "What authority I'
echoed the witness. 'Yes sir, upon what au
tbherity ? You are to give me an answer and I
not repeat my question." ' I don't see asa o,
man can be expected to answer a question be- tW
fore he has had time to turn it over." "No
thing can be simpler than the question put to
you. Upon what authority, I repeat, do you
swear to this animal's age?" ' On very good
anuthority." "Then, why this evasion ? Why ,
not state it at one?" "Well, if you most have Ro
it"- 'Most have it!" interrupted the man Pa
)f law, "I will have it.' "Well, then, if you
umot and will have it,' said the hostler, with D
leliberate gravity, --I had it from the mare's
own mouth." A particularly witty reply was sa
mee made by a well-known English arotiteo', pat
who had been given an importantopinion, and
whose professional status Mr. 8erjeaot Garrow, i
he opposing counsel, was anxious to depre- of
late, "You are a builder, I believe," began Tea

unoh ths same, I suppose." "I beg your par

'a totally different." "Oh, indeed; perhaps
on will state wherein this great difference 1.
onsists.' "An architect, sir, conceives the
esign, prepares the plans, draws out the
peceldetions-in short, supplies the mind. T
'he builder is merely the machine; the archi- NL

BEMMA ABBOT AND TRe OPEA.
te The reading publi are familiar with the
history of this gust singer, lately brought into
Sunusal newspaper prominenee by her refosal
to play is operns having immoral teadencles.
In ano nterview with a Sna reporter, after re
Ierring to the dislike of notoriety, and men
tioning facte regarding her study, engagement'
debut and experience in Europe, she spoke of
her conscientious soroples an follows :
"Now some the fats eoonoeraing my ' con
scientious scrupise '-my 'prndery,' as some are
plense to scll it. Mr. Mapleton billed me to
appear in Traviata.' and told me to prepare.
I told him that I could not sing in that operao
that I would not appear In an opera where I
should have to assume the oharaoser of a pros
titote, where the scenes were laid in houses of
prostitution, and where sin was made alluring.
I considered the influence of the opera bad, and
would not sing in il Mr. Mapleson laughed at
me; then he threatened-tebreak the oontract.
This he did to 'soare me,' e afterward told my
friends. I was beseiged with arguments and
t pleadings by my beet friends. Titlens talked
with me for hours. But Leould not see the
matter in any but one light. I considered the
opera bhad in its nfluence; I could not use my
volie in such a way.
" 'This was not an impulse, a freak," she con
°' tinned impulsively. "When I was a little girl
singing round the coountry with my guitar,
made a vow-yes, vow is the word-that I
would never use my voice when I thought the
influence might be bad. This vow I mean to
re I keep. That you may understand this was not
a new idea of mine, let me show you a copy of
a letter I wrote to Mr. Gye."
She hurried to bher room and returned with a
worn copy of the letter, dated in Paris three
ts days after her contract with GOe.
'"'This is what I wrte," she said: "' If I sing
in Paris next winter, oun will probably want
i me to appear in pubhoi on Sunday, and you
might wish me to sing in "Don Giovanni"
and other operas which I consider immoral; 1
tr but I most tell you that I cannot sing such
0- music, and I must be free on nunday. You said
as to me, "With your ideas on religion, your place
at is in a convent, and not on the stage." There
( you are all wrong. I know that a singer who
at lives a noble life, and who devotes the talent
God has given her to the best purposes, has
i just as much influence for good as though she
were in a pulpit. I will sing oin operas like the
" D"aughter of the Regiment," "Martha," and L!
e -'Faust," but nothing can induce me to sing
id music of the opposite class, nor is there a per
g son living who has the power to make me do
what my conscience tells me a1 wrong. There
i fore, unless we can agree on this subject youa
l will greatly oblige me by releasing me from my
o contract; for it would be folly to thiuk of be
ginning athe engagement.'
" My views tneu didn't make any difference
e to Mr. Gye," she continued, "for he didn't want
In to have me sing anyway. But withMr. Maple
tc son it was different. He insisted thati should
h sing. I insisted that I would not. What a
s, struggle I had then I None of my friends sym
,. pathized with me in my views. They said that
I was ruining my prospects. I had been study- d
lug four years. I had made asunoessful debut,
and then, juast as I was on the threshold of
Scucces, the door wide open, Ideliberately turn
d my back to it. Then they said, ' You sing in
d "Faust;" is not that just as bad Does not p
s Mcarguerite sin t' That's the argument they use
row. Marguerite sins, indeed, but she cannot
e help it; she is in the power of M p3isfop tee.
,. She suffers terribly for her sin, and dies with
f prayers on her lips. Theinfinenceof the opera
is good. Sin and its consequent evils are
strongly shown. In ' Traviiata' not so. Not
so in ' Don Giovanni ;' the hero is a libertine;
it the amours are set forth in attractive form.
.t Why, respectable men, fathers of families, will
take their children, their daughters, to the
a opera, and laugh heartily at the jokes made
about the number of Giorani'e conquests-one Li
girl in this place, two, three, four In anotherl i,
I don't understand how they can do it.
"Look at Jenny Lind. h8be had tickets for

At the last moment there was a change in the

a Jenny Lind refused to attend; refused to per
mit her daughters to attend; refuoed to let the Cc
tickets be used at all. I have her illustrious
example to encourage me, and that of Albani
also, who has refused to sing in these operas.
"No, as long as God permits me to sing, I Di
