As five years are required for the comple
tion of the bone structure of the horse, it is
important, says Dr. Lemercier, the French
veterinarian, that he be carefully used until
that age. If he is early overworked, the lig
aments which unite his one hundred and
thirty bones are prevented from becoming
aslliciently fixed to the frame, and he Is
dwarfed and wears out or dies long before
reaching the full twenty-fivo years which
should be the average duration of his life and
vigor. The muscles of a fine horse ought
to be thick and very long; thickness in
sures strength, and length and extended
sweep of limb. Properly-constructed har
ness is as essential to the comfort of a horse
as easy clothes are necessary to the comfort
of ma If harness is not well fitted to
the form, the veins are compressed, circula
tion is retarded, and disease ensues. When
in motion, the horse regulates his centre of
gravity by using his head and neck. The
check rein is therefore inhuman and injuri

his head is bold in a vertical -position, the
gravity is thrown too far back, and he ad
vances with difficulty. The ears may be
called indices of a horse's mind. Intelligent
animals prick up their ears when spoken to,
vicious ones throw their ears back. A blind
horse directs one ear forward and one back
ward, and in a deaf horse the ears are with
out expression. The ears on the best horses
are short and wide apart; the eyes are well
open, and the forehead is broad. A broad
forehead indicates good brain. The Arab

The loins should be short, the chest square,
aend the shoulders well developed. The
veterinary surgeon who said "no foot, no
horse," was perfectly correct. The hoof is
a curious and complicated mechanism; an
elastic box which expands and contracts as
the horse raises or puts down the foot.
Shoeing should be done with care and skill,
or the natural form of the hoof is destroyed.
Above all. so noble an animal should treated
with the greatest kindness, and no pains
should be spared to make his bonds as easy
to wear as may be.
A Mou, SINGoLAR CAsE--The Oregon
Herald of a late date gives this:
About six weeks ago Cull W. Hess, of
Yarmhill county, was shot by a man named
Morris. The shot passed through the fleshy
part of his right arm above the elbow, and
also through the skin of the right side, and
came out at the back. The wound was
dressed and Hess went home, his arm being
close to his side and over his right breast.
Mrs. Hess, the wife of the wounded man,
was at that time ena'kent, and on learning
what had occurred, she was considerably
agitated, es a matter of course, but there
were no unusual or extraordinary demon
strations on her part-no fainting or epilepsy
whatever. Eight or ten days ago, however,
that is about five weeks after the wounding
of her hueband, she gave birth to twins.
seven months old and still-born, one of
whom was " marked" in the most singular
and extraordinary manner. On examination
it was aseertained that a hole had been made
through its right arm and side correspond
ing exactly to that made on the arm and
side of Mr. Hess; that the position of the
arm was the same as that of the arm of.Mr.
H., and that inflamation had ensued and the
right arm had grown to the right side; and
that the bole in the arm had partially .·led
up and deltrised. Weeonsider this one of
the most singular sanetraordinary eases on
record, showing the woodedul matsraal in

of Preeeresa the Hasanm Body.
A correspondentof theLondon Atseneum,
writing from Naples, gives some Interesting
information respecting the means employed
by Protessor Abbate of that city for pre
serving the human body. He says:
" Some secret similar to Mr. Abbate's has
existed for a long time, as all the travelers
who have visited Florence probably well
know. In the Cabinet of Physiological
Anatomy in Santa Maria Novella, there are
preparations of portions of the human body
by Dr. Segato. The Grand Ducal Govern
ment refused to purchase the secret, which
died with Segato. His preparations, I re
peat, were only portions of the body, where
as that which is now being exhibited in
Naples, in the ex-convent of 'Santa Maria
della Nuova, Is the entire body of a youth of
seventeen years of age, who died of phthiss
about the end of last January. For five
months, therefore, it has resisted the action
of a very variable atmosphere. The features,
the integrity of the form, are perfectly pre.
served as they were at the moment of death.
The nails have a roseate hue; there is no
odor of any kind; and the flesh has the
hardness almost of marble. To this let it be
added, that the hair adheres so tenaciously to
the head that It is impossible to remove It,
of course without violence. The operation
of embalming or petrifying is effected In a
few hours, without the necessity of remov
ing the dress; Indeed another body had been
petrified, according to the same system,
without taking off the dress, and even pre
serving the gloves on. ' We know,' says a
medical gentleman, not an Italian, to whom
I am Indebted for these details, ' that some
gentlemen In Naples, after having proved
what we have stated, made an alteration In
their wills, Imposing it as an obligation on'
their heirs that they shall apply the system
of Abbate to their bodies, in the event of
their dying before the professor.'"
The Oldest City i the IVorld.
Damascus is the oldest city in the world.
Tyre and 81don have crumbledon the shore;
Basibec is a ruin; Palmyra is buried in a
desert; Ninevah and Babylon have disap

mascus remains whatit was before thedaysof
Abraham-a center of trade and travel-an
island of verdure in a desert-a " presiden
tial capital," with martial and sacred seso
clations extending through thirty centuries.
It was near Damascus that Saul of Tareus
saw the light above the brightness of the
sun; the street whichis called Strait, in which

man to have but one paradise, and for his
part he was resolved not to have it in this
world," is to-day what Julian calls the "eye
of the East," as it was in the time of Isaiah,
" the head of Syria."
From Damascus came the damson, our
blue plums and the delicious apricot of Por

its keen edge and elasticity, the secret of

that beautiful art of inlaying wood andsteel
with silver and gold, a kind of mosio en
graving and sculptural united, cailed dam

and guns are ornamented. It is still a city
of flowers and bright waters; the streams
