MAN AND THE HORSE.
AatlaMl Cue Marked Osta of tsta
Eaocbi 1st rtvtllaatfoa.
The conquest of tbe horse by man
and its final utilization for all pur
poses which are discharged by steam
and electricity .today marked one of
the great turning points in the history
of civilian tlon. In the great earth, and
J sand preglacial deposits .of .Europe the
1 true wild horse is as widespread,
though not as varied, as in America.
. It is not at this stage associated with
the remains of man, because no pre
t;lacial man except tbe pithecanthro
pus or triull man of Java has been
found. In the interglaclal or postgla
cial period the remains of man and
tbe horse are first found together. The
first association occurs iu the middle
of the paleolithic or rough implement
period. The discovery of all the possi
ble uses of the horse came very gradu
ally, however, for there is abundant
proof that man first hunted nnd ate,
then drove and finally rode the ani
mal. The prevailing drawings of the pa
leolithic horse represent him as hog
maned. with no forelock to conceal the
low bred Iloiiiau nose. A second tyite
in the Moutbe cave, a bearded horse
with lonjr. bristling mane, long ears
und convex forehead. Is regarded by
M. Kivlere as another species. But it
is not clear to my mind that these
drawings represent more than tlie
summer and winter coats of the same
animal. ISesides these Itoman nosed
types, to which Ewart traces the mod
ern cart horse, there are others with
small heads and fiat noses, which
Ewart associates with the Celtic pony
and possibly with the origin of the
thoroughbred. Other cave drawings,
reproduced by M. t'apitan. leave little
doubt that the ass was known in Eu
rope. It is also certain from abundant
evidence in the caves of France that
there was a larger horse toward the
south perhaps, while the smaller
breeds may have frequented the colder
northern regions. 'entury.

But Miss Cbawortb treated all the
boy's shy advances with laughter and
contempt, and, although he was "suf
fering the tortures of tbe lost" for her
sake, refused to take him seriously.
But tbe crowning blow came when, in
an adjacent room, be overheard Miss
Cbawortb say to her maid, "Do you
think I could care anything for that
lame boy?" "Tbls cruel speech," be
ufterward said, "was like a shot
through my heart. Although It was
late aud pitch dark, I darted out of the
bouse and never stopped running until
I reached Newstead."
Shelley, too, almost as handsome and
as gifted as Byron, knew from more
than one experience the "pangs of re

His first infatuation was for the

When Abraham Lincoln, as a youth
of eighteen, was "living In a rude log
cabin In Spencer county, IncL, and
picking up the rudiments of education
in the intervals of rail splitting and
plowing," be fell In love with tbe
daughter of a poor Irish settler in a
neighboring log cabin, nnd after many
clumsy failures to declare bis love

one of his first letters, asking her to
become his wife.
He never received an answer to this
"clumsy effusion." as he afterward call
