In something written we have an
indistinct recollection of having made
reference to a general disposition
among boys in their teens, as well as
bovs of maturer years, to enlighten
ana bless the world with their pro
found knowledge of the horse and his
history. Our books and newspapers
aie full of this kind of literature, and
it varies in style from the production
of the child at school, commencing
with: The horse has four legs and a
tail; up to the eloquent tribute of the
scholar wlion he quotes from .leb: That
his neck is clothed with thunder and
the glory of his nostrils is terrible.
He smeileth the battle afar off, the
thunder of the captains and the
shouting. Between these two ex
tremes of the child at his first school
conization, and the profession.il
literature, we have every grade of pre
tention, and each professing to have
mastered the whole subject. As we
approach the close of this nineteenth
century, we begin to look for some
thing hetter in this department of
knowledge from those who assume to
instruct," And it is to be found in
