Sedan as a battle field may be said to
be already obliterated. The wide re
glon over which the struggle raged
still remains, but already in these few
years have disappeared almost all
traces of the tragedy of which it was
the theater. The plow has passed over
the countless graves whose mounds
studded the strangely diversified ter
rain from Bazeilles to Fleneux, from
Givonne to Fining. The visitor to
Sedan can And now no guide to the
battle-field. The English resident who
tor the first year or two after the battle
offered himself in that capacity has
abandoned the role for lack of employ

original avocation. I have spoken of

TRAINING OxECN.-The first thing
necessary in training oxen, is kindness
then patience. I began In November last
not knowing whether I could got them
taught In time for this season or at all,
but I soon found them so tractable-that
my hiopes began to be raised. It took
.me just a day to learn that it wasn't
necessary to strike a, blow or speak a
word. The- farmers who go along
shouting at their cattle and goading
them, waste breath and strength. A
dozen yoke of oxen could butaught to
draw a load a hundred miles without
a word or a blow. It is only necessary
that the rarmer should lead, to show
the direction, and the t casts if kindly
treated and having an alrection for
their master, will do the rest. These
oxen were trained by un iform kindness.
A berlies of tricks in regular order
was fixed upon, and I put thein
through every day. I was with them
nearly all the time and they followed tue
like two pet kittens. There was a ring
in tile stables where I tuught then day
by day. First, with food in my hands,
I got them to follow me around in any
direction I choose to take. In ils way
I got then to go along on their knees
to waltz. W hat they knew when I got
them had practically to be untaught,
as it wias all done by 'gee' and 'haw.)
I found tney were quick of sight, and
that,havinig taugit tliem o artaln things,
I needed alter tLhat to simply get where
they could see ile, and to give them a
cue by the motion of my body or my
whip inl a Iertatin tllreOtlol. Ill this
way tihe waltz was taught, and wlien
