A COLLEGE FOR HORSES.
HOW THE STEEDS IN THE NEW YORK
FIRE. DEPARTMENT ARE TAUGHT.
Marvelous Thine Accomplished la at Few
Seconds Apples and Lumps of Sugar
for the Good Scholar. Started In Eleven
"That's the best eduted horse in New
York. Ha is the most ictelligont horso that
ever came out of school.''
The speaker was a br ad shouldered fire
man, who stood at tho d xr of a down towu
engine bouse. The liardsomo roan which
stood a fow feet away ready to jump into his
harness, seemed to know what was being said,
for he twisted his bead and arched his ueck
In the proudest manner. A moment later,
under tho direction of t :io fireman, be went
'ihrough a wonderful exhibition of fast har
nessing, showing ulinost human intelligence.
Ho practically harnessed himself, and did it
so quickly that the eye oould scarcely follow
What the fireman said of the horse was
true. He had been to school, from whence
be graduated with d stingnislied honors.
There are many interesting things in New
York, but tjero are a few things moro inter
esting tbau the school 'rota which this par
ticular horso graduated. It is situated in tho
upyer rart of New York and is under the
tnnuageuiHut of severa veterans of the firo
department, command' :d by a well known
vetorinary burgeon, niu is practically prin
cipal cf school.
At;d thcro isos mud. bard studying done
in this sdiool as in r.ny .:i Now York, oven if
tho pupils are horses.
Tbe school in Now York educates horses
for the fire service only. It is a more im
portant institution than most pooplo may at
first thought imagine it to lie. Intelligent
horses are almost as ic dispensable ns uro in
telligent men. A ; tui id, a slow or a balky
horse may at times cos! the loss of thousauiU
of dollars, and perhaps many lives. Tho de
lay of two or three seconds in getting a fire
engine out of tbe engine house sometimes
gives a firo an impetus that is unnecessarily
damaging to life and property. The horses
turned ont from this liool are warranted to
be strong, intelligent a id to have a thorough
knowledge of their business. They never
balk, they are never lazy, and are in every
respect reliable, .bein sound of wind and
limb and more than in diligent.
SELECTION At D TEAOHIKO.
The horses are all picked, but they seldom
are of any use for fire work after five years
of service, i hev are s lee ted by experts from
among tbe best horses that aro to be found at
the Bull's Head horse market, tbe chief horse
market in the United States. The horses
selected come mainly from the west. It re
quires somo skill to pit k out horses for use in
the fire department. Utg and clumsy horses
aro of no use. But tbt horso must bo speedy
and strong. The hoives selected are usually
about sixteen hands high, weighTng from
lfidO to 1,450 pounds, and their ages range
from 4 to 0 years. Younger horses are not
strong enough to drag heavy fire engines, and
older ones are too old o truin.
As soon as the horso is bought he La sent to
tho school, and Dr. Sh ja, who is in charge of'
this Institution, says ' that iu his opinion
horses and boys ore very much alike, and
must be managed iu very much tho same
manner. But Dr. fehta believes in kindness
as a moans to get control of his pupils and
It is marvelous how quickly these young
horses learn what it it necessary for them to
know before they can lie put to work. The
men who handle tue:n know their business
thoroughly, and are in lovo with it. Under
their careful handling the green horse under
stands his duties iu litLle moro than a month.
No whip is used in this school. Xhe first test
is that which establishes the soundness of the
animal's wind. Then he is put in his stall.
He is led backward a: d forward to where the
harness hangs until bo becomes used to the
engine, and until ho also becomes accustomed
to ducking or lowerin ; his head to get it into
When ho accompli: lies his task woll he is
given apples or can ly Or lumps of sugar,
and is petted and made much of. He is next
taught to rush to his place in front of the en
gine tit the clang of the gong. When he be
comes expert ct tli i ; his education is com
plete and ho is ready for serious work, and a
week later can run to a tiro as well as the
most thoroughgoing veteran.
There aro always a dozen horses being put
through their paces i t this school, which is
constantly becoming moro and moro of a
necessity. These hor s cost about $300 each,
and after their five y ;ars they ore disposed
of to street peddlers nr cartmen for any sum
from $50 to f 150. These horses are so well
taught that they nevsr forget their training.
It is not an uncommon thing when a fire en
gine dashes through i he streets of New York
to see somo dilapidated looking nag attached
to some huckster's w agon prick up bis ears
and join in the race to the scene of tbe fire.
It is an old and broken down fire horse who
can't forget tbe stirr.ng days when he helped
draw an engine. It is the same spirit that
led broken aown hu iters to join iu tho hunt
at the sound of the cry of tbe hounds.
' THE CBA tfPIO-V TEAM.
There are some wonderful horses in the
New York fire dep irtment, hut the cham
pions are "Joe" and "Charley," the splendid
team that are attached to engine company
17, in Chambers street. These were the prise
winners at the work 's fair at tho American
Institute in 13S5, and they are still tbe cham
pions. They are the t wo most famous scholars
ever turned out tr im New York's school.
Joe is the champion of champions, and he
entertains many vititors who come daily to
admire his intelliget ce. Joe is a roan, and a
hondsomo one, too. His mate Charley is a
bay, and this team can drag a heavy engine
over the ground faster than any team in the
United States and p-obably in the world. At
the world's fair, wheu they won the medal
which they still hold, they were tried on a
dash of 20 feet Oi aches. Tbey made three
tests, one at 10 in the morning, another at 2
in the afternoon, au 1 yet another at 8 o'clock
in the evening.
The time for tho first p ish was one and
five-eighths seconds . f cr ..no second two and
one-half seconds, an 1 for the last two seconds.
Tbe intelligence of these horses is simply re
markable. Chief lihaw, of London, could
scarcely believe tlnr. they could do what was
said of them until it was done before his own
eyes. Even then it was hard to believo. On
three ordinary trial t tho other night Joe and
Charley got into tieir harness and had their
engine on the street and on their way to a fire
la an average time ot eleven seconds. And
there was no special effort to make extraordi
nary speed, either. Cor. St. Louis Globe

ANCIENT ENGLISH CUSTOMS.
The Giant of tho Chalk Hills Burying
Suicides at Cross Roads.
Amongst the almost universal custom of
raising tumuli, statues or monuments com
memorative of persons and events, England,
perhaps, stands alone with u jwculinr custora
of carving objects on the sides of chalk bill
Tho "Corno Giant," which is to bo seen at a
great distance, dug on a hillsido at Cerno
Abbas, Dorsetshire, is a very interesting
specimen of this unique art I do not re
member the dimensions, but the figure occu
pies a considerable space, otherwise it would
not be easily distinguished at a distance,
where only it can bo mado out. It is that of
a man with a club in his hand, and, although
it was, I -believe, intended to reoreseut one of
the curly kings of England, I do not think it
is certain which.
Strange objects of this and other kinds,
however, generally bear a "local reputation,"
or otherwise, local tradition, which in the
present case is. as usual, rather absurd, and
is to tho effect that the figure represents a
giant who once killed and feasted on a farm
er's sheep on the hill, and having gorged him
self lay down to sleep, when the vi. lagers
stole npon and killed hinil I should state
that to form the figure the surface earth is
dug away, revealing the white chalk, and it
would seem that considerable skill must have
been displayed and the work directed from a
distance, in order to give it the proper per
spective. While the "giantn has evidently
existed for many centuries, there is in excel
lent modern figure of horse and r'der on a
hill near tho little-watering place of Wey
mouth, representing King George III, who
visited there. A statue is also erected on the
esplanade, with an inscription recording the
event. Tho hill incisions have to be cleaned
up about oiieo in two years.
The singular ancient custom of burying
suicides at cross county roads has long since
become obsolete. I believe tho persons so
"houored" had met their fate ch efiy, if not
entirely, by drowning. It will be remem
bered that Hood, relating the tragic end of
one of these unfortunates, concludes with the
And they buried Hira at tour cross roads
With a stake in Lis inside.
It is said that on being interred presum
ably, without a coffin a green stake wan
driven through the body of tho victim.
Tho somen hat barbarous custom of gib
beting murdorers. too, has happily long since
been abolished. Tho worst form of gibbet
ing alive or starving tho cocdomned man to
death in an iron cage or som j lonely heath,
exposed to the elements, was terrible com
pared with tho milder form of exposing the
body after death on a post, tn many locali
ties tho sito of a gibbeting post is commemo
rated, the writer remembering a spot called
"Jack White's Gibbet"
Turning to something a little more pleas
ant, the reader may not have heard, or, if so,
seen what are termed "fairy rings," which
consist of distinct aud perfectly formed
beaten round tracks, of about one foot, on a
green field, down or rabbit warren, "tradi
tionally" said to be formed by a fairy. These
rings vary in size and distinctness, and while
some are quite fifty yards iu circumference,
others ore not more than ten or fifteen, and
aro generally surrounded by the commonest
fungi or toadstool. It would be interesting
to know how these rings are really formed,
and although there seems some reasvn to
to suppose they aro produced by the gambols
of rabbits, yet it is diHcult to understand
how they could contrive to form a complete
circle. Detroit Free Press.
Occupation and Facial Expression.
A man's occupation o.-condition has a good
deal to do with making his facial expression.
Intellectual pursuits, like studies or the schol
arly professions, when coupled with temperate
and moral habits of life, brighten tho face
and give a person a superior look. Magna
nimity of nature, or love of studies and arts,
will make a bright, glad face, but, contrary
to this, a man may have a face that does not
please anybody, becaose of a love of self to
the exclusion of all others, notwithstanding
his learning aud worldly shrewdness, tjol
diers get a hard, severe look, overworked
laborers constantly look tired, reporters look
inquisitive, mathematicians look studious,
judges become grave, even when off the
bench, the man who has had domestic trouble
looks all broken up. An eiamplo of the ludi
crous side of this- subject is to see a third
class lawyer stalking around a police court
looking wise as an ewL Tbe business makes
the face, I say. There's the butcher's face,
the saloon keepers face, the beggar's face,
the ministerial face, the lawyer's face, the
doctor's face, the hoodlum's face, all so dis
tinct each from the other and singly, that I
seldom foil to recognize those callings show
ing through the faces. And what city boy
cannot recognize a genuine farmer on the
street as a farmer the moment he sees him?
Harold of Health.
The surface of the earth presents a great
variety of fomiS and features. Land is flat,
undulating, broken, hilly, mountainous,
swampy, deser., etc. The free movement of
men aud traffic over this uneven surface is
much affected by its form; hence, for the
general information of those interested
directly or indirectly in travel or transpor
tation, a knowledge of surface form is
valuable. Hence arise topographic surveys

I hve been a sufferer for six years with
catarrh, ulcerated sore throat and rheu
matism of the chest, from blood poison.
About four weeks ago I was passing the
Botanic Blood Balm store No. 8, North
street, Baltimore. I went in and con
sulted your agent about my case. lie
gave me one of your B. B. B. "Book of
Wonders," which I read. I called in a
few days afterward and got a bottle of
your Botanic Blood Bhlm-B. B.B. I
am now on my third bottle and will say
that I have felt a marked improvement
since the third day after commencing to
use your medicine. I now have no trouble
from my tbroat, and have improved so
much in every way that I am' satisfied
that by the use of your medicine I will
soon be all right.
I have taken many and eome good
prescriptions and medicines for this
trouble, bull think your B. B. B. the
best remedy I have had, and I cheerfully
recommei-d your Botanic Blood Balm to
the public as the quickest and best blood
remedy 1 have found, after eix long years
of search for health. Very respectfully
