The Horse.
There is evidently an increasing in
trrest manifested by farmers and others,
in improving the preset)* breeds of bores*
which is shown, not only jn the selection
of ss)erior animal* t» breed from, but al
so in a willingness to pay high prices for !
such somees, that once would have seem
ed fabulous. Any facts, therefore, of
value, calculated ta throw light upon n
subject so important to stock raisers, may
be useful as well as interesting.
The prcscut breed of horses in this
country originated from stock imported
from England, in which country the na
tive breed of horses had been improved
by successive crossings with those of Ger
man, Spanish and Arabian blood in the
order named, until England possessed,
what she still claims to have, the finest
breed of horses in the world.
The improvement thus effected is to bo
attributed to a number of causes, among
which arc indirectly, the iuventious of
gunpowder and steam. Previous to the
invention of gunpowder the horses were
large and unwieldy, and suitable only for
carrying the knights of those days with
their heavy armor. The effects of gun
powder rendering the armor useless, both
that and tho kind of horses required (o
carry it fell into disuse, and a demand was
created for a higher and more active breed
of horses. The discovery of steam, a few
centuries later, increased this demand by
still further superseding the necessity for
using horses of a large size' Hut it is to
the introduction of the race course, and to
the preserving the predigrees of such
horses as were winners in the race, more
than all else beside, that we arc to attri
bute the production of a breed of horses,
tdike famous for possessing the qualities of
strength, swiftness, beauty, docility, cour- j
age and durability, which are found in ;
those that arc thorough bred.
It is necessary for farm and road pur
poses, that horses should bo of pure blood :
but it is an advantage to them to have
t-iawji aw 1/iua aT it nisaaw.liitrr fn fill* a-nvl
■ 1
required of them, as it has been ascertain
ed from actual experience, that for all!
purposes a mixture of the thorough bred I
is beneficial even in the cart horse.
It is a very common, but mistaken idea,
which some farmers have that tlie largest
males are the best stock getters; and large j
sums are accordingly paid for the services
of large stallions, hulls and rams which
results in deterioration of the stock aud ,
disappointment and loss to the farmer. :
There arc certain well defined rules, that
may be found in Youatt's work on the
horse, which 1 will quote tor the benefit
of those engaged in breeding aud improv
ing stock, as follows :
1st. J/uscles.—The muscles and ten
dons, which are their appendages, should
be large, by which an auimal is able to
travel with greater facility.
2. The Hones.—The strength of the
animal docs not depend upon the size of
the bones, but upon that of the muscles.
Animals imperfectly nourished during
growth, have their bones disproportion!}'
large. Large hones, therefore, indicate
imperfect organs of nutrition.
3d. On the Improvement of the
Form—When the malo is much larger
than the female, the offspring is generally
of an imperfect form*; if the female is
proportionately larger, the offspring is of
an improved form Flic proper way to
improve the form of animals, is to select a
well formed female, proportionately larger
than the male. The improvement depends
upon this principle—that the power of the
female to supply her offspring with
nourishment is in proportion to her site,
and the power of nourishing herself
through the excellence of her own constitu
tion. The size of the fentus is generally
in proportion to that of the male parent;
and, therefore, when the female parent is
disproportionately small, the quantity of
nourishment will be deficient, aud her
offspring disproportioned accordingly;
but when the female, from her size and
good constitution, is more than adequate
to the nourishment of the f«Mus of a male
smaller than herself, the growth must be
proportionately grcutcr.
To produce the most perfect formed
animals abundant nourishment is neces
sary from the time of its birth until its
growth is completed.
The power to prepare the greatest

REP.iK.4TOR CAPILM.
For restoring hair upon bald heads, (from
whatever cause it may have fallen out) and
forcing a growth of hair upon the face, it has
no equal. It will force the beard to grow
upon tlic smoothest face, in from five to eight
weeks, or hair upon bald heads in from two
to three months. A few ignorant practition
ers have asserted that there is nothing that
will force or hasten the growth of the hair or
beard. Their assertions are false, as thous
ands of living witnesses (from their own ex
perience) can bear witness. But many will
say, how are we to distinguish the genuine
from the spurious? It oertainly is difficult,
as nine-tenths of the different Preparations
advertised for the hair and beard are entirely
worthless, and you may have already thrown
away large amounts in their purchase. To
such we would say. fry the Reparatnr Capilli;
it will cost you nothing unless it fully comes j
up to our representations. If your Druggist
does not keep it, send us one dollar and we
will forward it, postpaid, together with a re

jjt*r A Young Lady returning to lier
country home, after a sojourn of a few months
in the City, was hardly recogniicd by her j
friends. In place of a coarse, rustic, flushed
face, she had a soft, ruby complexion of almost |
marble smoothness, and instead of twenty
three she really appeared but eighteen. Upon
inquiry as to the cause of so great a change, i
she plainly told them that she used the Clr* |
