The Clydesdale Horse
This breed of horses b of Scotch oil-
gin. It is said that one of the ancient
kings required the bishops to seo that
good staflions were kopt in each dio
cese, to propagate a good race of norses
for agricultural purposes as well as for
ouier worit. Later the Duke of Hamil
ton sent to Flinders for a Flemish stal
lion, which crossed upon the mares
sprung from the horses kept as above
referred to. became the fountain head
of the Clydesdale.
The estate of tho Duke of Hamilton
is in the valley of Clyde, and from
which enme the name "Clydesdale.'
From this valley tho breeding of thia
horse spread all over Scotland, and aro
now in demand all over tho world
where good draft horses nro needed.
The following is" tho general descrip
tion of this now popular breed: In col
or, bays and browns predominate, with
usually somo white In tho face or on the
feet. In height they range from 15.3
to 17.1, with un occasional one at near
ly eighteen hands; ami in weight from
1,500 to 2,100 pounds, with un occa
sional horse 2,100 to 2,600 pounds.
They arc heavier boned than most
other breeds, accordingly their weight,
particularly in their Jimb.i, which nro of
great width, llat, cordy and hard. It
is said that at the bone rnillo the hones
of tho Clyde can readily bo distin
guished from those of tho ordinary
horse by their toughnesj and solidity.
Ring bone, bone spavins, splints, and
such diseases of the bony structure aro
with them in their native country utter
ly unknown. Tho hoofs are good sized,
deep, well-shaped, fine grained, llrm
and tough. IIn has a prominent eye,
tine head, well-shnpod neck, which is
well set upon magnificent shoulders.
Their barrel is round and straight.with
none of the paunchy appearance; body
generally long, and tho quarters im
inciiso. The whole muscular structure
is of prodigious development, and with
none of the stall-fed und Hubby appear
ance so common in some families of
the draft horse; their manes and tails
heavy and usually inclined to curl. Tho
back of the logs, from the knee and tho
hocks to tho fetlock", is covered with
rjuito long hair a characteristic as
highly prized by the Scotchman ns tho
crumpled horn by tho breeders of Short
Ilorus both being evidences of tho
purity of the blood. They aru kind
and gentlo in disposition, but spirited,
and with great nerve, vim nnd courage.
They are rapid walkers, with or with
out a load, are excellent travelers for
such heavy horses, of wonderful power
and endurance, and withal very easily

The Jfachrt'chten of Baale adds a new
miecdote to the rich collection of Gor
roan, stork-talesf. During , one of the
great storms of . th present year, the
lightning struck a barn in the village of
Lowenberg, . and a stork's" nest, la
which there were some young stork
lings, was threatened by the flamed.
Tho two parent birds contemplated the
horrible situation from a distance, with
evident distress. At last the mother
bird darted down upon tho nest, and,
seizing ode of her young family with
her 1'uk, bore it off to a safe spot upon
a meadow. Tho, father followed her,
and settled down to keep watch over his
offspring. When tho mother returned
to tho scene of danger the fire had
reached the nest, in which one bird still
remained; but while she was flying
around it, preparing for a descent, the
youngfoll through the chaired nest
into the burning barn. It was no mo
ment for thought. Down darted the
mother into the smoke and lire, and,
coining up with her iirodlmj in her
beak, tlew off, apparently unhurt.
On tho next day a wounded stork fell
to the market place in the neighboring
town of Trebbin. She was unable to
stand, and the policeman of the little
towii carried her into tho guard-house,
wheip it was discovered that both her
legs were sorely burned, and she was
recognized as tho heroic mother who
had done tho brave feat of rescue at tbo
tiro in Lowenberg. A physician was
sent for, ami the burgomaster found
her a temporary hospital in tho Kathaus.
Meanwhile, the spouse of the sick she
stork bad discovered her whereabouts.
Ho attended diligently to the young
ones, ana paid daily visits to the moth
er, as if to inform himself how the pa
tient was getting on, and to assure her
that their children were doing well.
Tho school children of Trobbiu readily
charged themselves with the task of
finding food for the patient, bringing
her every day far more than the neces
sary number of living frogs. The bur
gomaster paid an official visit every
day to tho sick guest of tho municipali
ty, to see that the doctor s orders wore
duly carried out, and in less than a
fortnight the bird was sufficiently hale
to II v away to her husband and children.

1 he habit of feeiugthe servants.
while still deeply rooted, is losing pres
tige, and American inlluonce will event
ually kill it. One class of American
travelers never give fees. Not accus
tomed to it at homo, they boldly and
fearlessly spurn it here. Tho other
class give fees with far too lavish a
hand, and what is beyond all reason.
They scorn . to give a man as well
dressed as themselves a penny, and so
they give a shilling. Servants thus ex
orbitantly feed Boon learn to receive
with contempt anything less, even from
their employers, and so tho European
himself is compelled to fee beyond rea
son, and thus the whole system will die
of its own weight. Tho stranger is al
ways embarrassed in determining whom
to fee and whom not, and how much to
give. In many places tho servants re
ceivo no compensation whatever from
their employers, and are paid solely by
gratuities; very large stuns are often
paid proprietors for the positions.

of dollars in tho aggregate, but were
far beyond tho regular profits of tho
business. I think the clever Yankee
hit. the point exactly a few days ago,
who when asked by a servant at an eating-house
for his feo, replied by saying
that "If your master is not ablo to pay

feet, but four arms. Tho sense of feel

heads looked peevish and occasionally
cried on account of a painful tooth,
whilo tho other lookod fresh and lively,

arms come in conflict and cause fights
between tho twins. Though the pair
have one body below tho uroast, they
