Swift Travel.
Mere speed in traveling is in itself a
great element of independence. Iu a
country where good lodgings are only
to be found at wide intervals the
power of going quickly from one to
another makes the traveler heedless of
the demerits of those which he easily
passes by. Nobody knows who has
not tried how difficult it is to travel
slowly in some regions that the quick
traveler believes to be perfectly well
provided. It matters nothing to liim
that his hotels are forty miles apart.
The slow traveler has to put up with
wretched accommodation in the in
terval. This is the great adyantage
that cyclists have over pedestrians.
The velocipede soon takes its rider over
the ten or fifteen miles that separate
him from his inn. The slow traveler
seeks independence in another way—
his great desire is to have his lodging
with him. Long before independent
traveling was understood as a recrea
tion the science of it had been mas
tered empirically by poor practical
men. The canal boat has its narrow
cabin, the wandering hawker his
covered wagon or more comfortable
caravan, the gypsy his humble tent
for the roadside. All these people can
cook for themselves in their own way,
and being thus always near their lodg
ing and their dinner are independent
of the country inns. Lovers of slow
travel have been considered eccentric
and absurd for doing that which the
necessity of the case has suggested to
all mankind, in similar circumstances,
from time immemorial. The desire of
all travelers by water is to have a
cabin in the boat, and every land
traveler caught in a shower of rain
has desired a tent or a caravan. The
eccentricity of traveling with means
of shelter of your own seems to depend
upon very slight distinctions. It is
extremely eccentric to have a caravan
on the road and sleep in it, but not in
the least eccentric to have a saloon
carriage, with similar sleeping ac
commodation, on the railway. When
the distances are very long, and people
wish-to be independent of hotels, they
do exactly the same things in rapid
steam conveyances that slow travelers
do on the canal, the river or the road.
When Her Majesty goes to Provence
or Savoy she sleeps on board her boat
like a fisherman in harbor, the only
difference being in the greater luxury
of the royal accommodation, and when
she passes from the water to the land
she sleeps again in her railway car
riage, which is nothing but a splendid
sort of caravan. The progresses of
Indian Governor General used to be a
very magnificent kind of gypsying.
Yachting of all kinds is gypsying that
has received the consecration of fash
ion, and now that independent travel
is appreciated there are yachts of all
sizes and degrees of luxury and ex
pense.—Longman's

Horses Taking a Hath.
We really enjoyed a most interest
ing sight the other morning. Half a
gale was blowing and the sea was run
ning high on the incoming tide, the
great waves being topped with foam
that glittered in the sunshine as far
out as we could see. As we walked
along we saw a crowd assembled, and
soon joined it, when we found that
about fifty horses belonging to E. San
ger's circus, which was visiting tlie
place for a day were having a sea
bath. Some of them were tied to
gether by fours and sent in by men,
only to turn and scamper out again as
fast as they could. Sent back again,
and seeing the joy of their equine
friends, they soon entered into the
spirit of the pastime. Some of them
swain about for along time, delighting
in the refreshing dip, and probably en
joying a wild sense of freedom, with
the soft west wind exhilarating them
and the great waves splashing over
them. Six small ponies, tied together,
for a long time refused to face the
formidable-looking breakers, taller
than themselves, but at last they were
hunted in, and, after a very short stay,
they scampered out, shaking their ears
and expostulating freely in their own
tongue. Some of the horses were
ridden, and their riders got wet
through, but, regardless of this the
men seemed to enjoy the boisterous
play of wind and
-wave.—London
A SPHISO-HOOSE is a house with a spring
ia it, and a spi-injr bonnet is usually worn
above waterfall.—Hixm-ircl Tribune.
