Ancient Stories of Their Care mid
Training Aw 3lci' Fables.
So far as we know, the Arabian
breeders have no patented system of
training their horses different from
i hacked, at two or three years old. 1 heir
subsequent handling is much like that
ol all other horses, with perhaps the
difference that as early in life as pos
sible the young animals are accustomed
to doing without water for increasing
periods of time in order to accustom
them later on to the scarcity of liquids
m desert journeys.
The ancient stories about the Arab
sleetl 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.

"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 he seen constantly at night
wandering through the rooms and pas
sages. When the family arrived 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 he two rooms here, and there
is only one.'
"The agent replied that within a few
weeks the owner had caused a partition
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 fulfiHcd..-Tliey

that is wall papers.

White walls, of course, absorb the
least light, only ISO per cent, but nearly
everybody wants some color to meet the

It is when you get into the reds and
greens and browns that the light begins

Why it Sccnis to Itniii in Stwitks In
.stewl of in Drops.
When it is raining just what does
one seer We know that the ram con
sists of drops, nearly spherical, falling
either vertically or at an angle (if the
wind be blowing). Hut what do we see?
We see streaks through the air and not
drops at all. The reason is that the
eye cannot follow the raindrop in its
llight and so cannot see just the drop
continually. The eye gets only one
glimpse of the drop in one position, while
an impression is made on the retina for
some distance by the drop moving.
If the drop were still we could look
at it as long as we chose, and the image
of the drop would be in just one place
on the retina, hut if wc let the drop
escape from our direct view it makes an
image, or, rather,. a succession of images,
on the retina, and that is what we sec.
Hut why does the retina show this
succession of images? It certainly sees
at any one time the drop in just one
position, so it would seem that the last
position seen would be the one. This
is not the case, and the cause is due to
what is known as persistence of vision.
We cannot quit seeing a thing immed
iately after netting a view of it. It
I takes about an eight of a second for the
retina to lose an image, and o this suc
cession of images will be on the retina
at one time and will cause a streak.
For the same reason the spokes of a
rapidly rotating wheel cannot be seen
except as a blur. For the same reason
moving pictures are possible. Xew York
