HORSES IN HISTORY.
SOME OF THE NOBLE STEEDS THAT
HAVE ACHIEVED FAME.
THE COURT JESTER.
Governor iloicomo iinally mustered
up c u atre yesterday to draw on tho
st te treasury for house rent, says tho
State Journal. lie stopped drawing
last April and all through the cam
palgn he declined to make out a claim
for the usual amount. He drew $(!0
yes'erdny jor nine months, being at
the rate of $40 a month. Iu order to
draw this money the governor is re
quired under the provision of a new
law to t ike oath to the correctness and
genuineness of the claim. It has been
reported that this provisions of the law
and fear of criticism deterred the gov
ernor from drawing the money. Gov
ernor Crouse rtfused to accept a simi

particular item in tho appropriation
The crossing of the $160,000,000 line
by the gold reserve in its upward
movement, which is the highest point
touched since September. 1S90, is a
financial event of great importance,
savs an exchansro. Ever since the over
throw of Brvan. nearly fourteen
months ago, there has been a steady
increase in tna treasury gold, except
during the two or three months in the
latter Dart of the spring and the
earlv part of the summer when gold
exportation was under way. Finan
cial confidence has been completely
restored. All that is needed now to
make the treasury situation ideally
good is an abundant revenue, ana the
constaat gain in governmental income
ever since July shows that that condi
tion cannot be far off.

How to Prevent Pneumonia.
At this time of the year a cold is
very easily to contracted, and if left
to run its course without the aid of
some reliable cough medicine is liable
to result in that dre d disease, pneu

to cure a cough or cold than Cham

used it quite extensively and it has
always (riven entire satisfactions

This is the only remedy that is
known to be a certain preventive of
pneumonia. Among the many thous
ands who have used it for colds and la
grippe, we have never yet learned of
a single case having resulted in pneu

or have reason to .ear an attack of

The Four Footed Friend For Whom a
City Waa Named Koman Horses That
Lived Ilke Princes Chargers Who Woo
Itenown Amid the Carnage, of War.
It is hard to say with any near ap
proach to accuracy how long the hcjr.se
has been a dometstieutcd animal. WTo
can only nay that he lias been mo from
time immemorial that is, from tho
earlietit times of which wo have any
records. Tho Assyrian nculptures and
they nro about tho moist ancient of which
we know anything, for some of them
are estimated to date from 4200 li. (J.
contain inoro representations of capari
soned horses than oven men. Still, wo
do not get any examples of favorite
horses until a long time after this.
Even the first examples, indeed, are
only legendary, for, though there is no
d'juht that Hector of Troy existed, it is
not improbablo that Homer invented
tho names of his three favorite horses,
I'oderge, tho cream colored Galathc and
the fiery Ethon. Ilut the horse of Alex
ander the Great, Bucephalus, is an indi
vidual as historically real as his master.
This famous horse was, says I'lutarch,
offered to Philip for lii talents (about
L'i, 5 18), but he displayed so much vi
cionsness that Alexander's father was
about to send him away when the
young priuco offered to tamo him. Ho
agreed, in the event of failure, to for
feit tho price of the horse stud began by
turning his head to the sun, as ho ob
served that tho horso was frightened at
his own shadow. In the end he com
pletely tamed him so completely, in
deed, that Bucephalus, though ho would
permit nobody except Alexander to
mount him, always knelt down for that
purpose to his master. He died at the
ago of 5J0, and his master built as his
mausoleum the city of Bueephala.
Readers of Mucaulay will remember
the famous Mack A lister, the horse of
Merminius, and the dark gray charger
of .Mamilius, whoso sudden appearance
in the city of Tusculuin without his
master brought the news of the defeat
of the allies at Lake liegillus. Connect
ed with that battle, too, were the horses
of the great "twin, brethren, " Castor
and Pollux, coal black, with white legs
and tails. But those are legendary. Not
so, however, tho well known horse of
Caligula, Incitatus. This animal had a
stable of marble; his stall was of ivory,
his clothing of purple and his halters
stiff with gems. He had a set of golden
plates and was presented with a palace,
furniture and slaves completo, in order
that guests invited in his name should
be properiy entertained. His diet was
the most costly that could be imagined,
the finest grapes that Asia could provide
being reserved for him. Verus, another
Roman emperor about a century later,
treated his horse almost as extravagant
ly. He fed him with raisins and almonds
with his own hands, and when ho died
erected a statue of gold to him, while
all the dignitaries of the empire attend
ed the funeral.
As we come to later times, so we get
more examples of favorite horses. Wil
liam tho Conqueror had one which ho
rode at tho battle of Hastings, about
which almost everything seems to be
known except his name. lie was of
huge size and was a present from King
Alfonso of Spain "such a gift as
prince might give and a prince receive. "
This gallant horse, however, did not
survive tho battle, for Gyrth, Harold's
butcher, "clove him with a bill, and he
died." Richard I's horse was called
Maleck, and was jet black. Be bore his
master through the holy war and ar
rived in England before him. In fact
he survived the king several years. Tho
second Richard, too, had a favorite
horse, called Roan Barbaiy, which was
supposed to be the finest horse in Europe
at that time, and it was on Roan Bar
bary that the young king was mounted
when the incident wherein Wat Tyler
was stabbed by the mayor of Walworth
About a century later we get the
Wars of tho Roses, and in the many
battles of that civil disturbance a cou
ple of horses played important parts.
These belonged to the great Earl of
Warwick, the kingmaker. His first
was Maleck, a beautiful gray, which
he rode at the battle of Towton. It was
this horse whose death turned the for
tunes of the battle, for Warwick, seeing
that his men were giving ground, de
liberately sprang from his favorite horse
and killed him. Then his men knew
that the kingmaker was prepared to
conquer, but not to ny. They rallied
and finally won the battle.
There were two horses belonging to
highwaymen which were famous in
their time. One of them belonged to
the celebrated knight of the road, Paul
Clifford. He was called Robin and was
Irish. In color iron gray, he was re
puted by judges of horseflesh and
there were some who were quite as com
petent to give an opinion, if not more
so, as any of the present day to be ab
solutely without blemish and to be sec
ond to none. Another famous horse, or
rather mare, was Black Bess. Her own
er, Dick Turpin, or, to give him his
correct name, Kicks, committed a rob
bery in London at 4 o'clock in the
morning, and, fearing discovery, made
for Gravesend, ferried across the river
and appeared at the bowling green in
York the same evening, having accom
plished his ride of 300 miles in 16 hours
on one horse. At least so says the leg
end, and this is certain that on his
trial he was acquitted, the jury consid
ering it impossible that he could have
got to iork in the time. London
A Practical Joke That Will Sommers
Played on Cardinal Wolsey.
Amelia Wofford tells of "Tho Court
Jesters of England" in St. Nicholas.
Tho following is related of King Henry
Sommers, liko S og"in, liked a prac

Cardinal Wolsey is thus quaintly told
by Arm in :
"Of a time appointed the king (lined

Open confession, open penuance. His

maxims, "Everybody may be right"

The Once Familiar Laths Have Glren Way
to Wire Netting.
Men whoso memories go back, say,
40 years will reinemler that In those
d.iys when a man wanted to build a
chicken coop he bought a bundle or two
of laths and built it. There are mighty
few lath chicken coops built nowaday.
Even tho smallest chicken raiser, who
keeps u few in his back yard, makes his
coop or runway of poultry netting. The
chicken house, or shelter, is made of
boards, often of two thicknesses and
with tarred paper between, for better
protection from the weather, and with
openings at the bottom and under tho
projecting roof for ventilation.
Laths were cheap; jtoultry netting is
still cheaper. It is made of steel wire,
galvani:i :L iu various widths and in
various sizes of mesh. Tho netting most
commonly used is six feet wide, with a
two inch mesh. The chicken raiser sets
up a frame and tacks the netting to it.
Narrow nettings of smaller mesh aro
used in various ways to keep in little
chicks sometimes a foot wide small
mesh netting to run around at tho base
fit the lnelosure, the regular netting
bt ing set above it, thus increasing tho
total height of the netting. Sometimes
the small mesh netting is run around
inside of the regular netting, thus mak
ingtho lower part of the netting double.
I Souk times it is used to make separate
tin.t 1 1 lnclosnies within the largo run
way ;:nd perhaps to make a number of
PmrJl inclosures to ep separate broods
of chicks apart. The narrow, small
mesh netting is made up to thrt) and a

There aro now many largo establish

chicken house; and coop, to men who
raise m.any chickens and maintain an
elaborate plant for their breeding and

Von Moltke was originally an officer
in the Danish army. At the ago of .)
years he was entered as a royal cadet
i. e., he was to be educated at the ex
pense of the king, Frederick VI, in the
Copenhagen Military academy and,
having taken his examinations, he wore
the Danish uniform until he, as a sub
lieutenant at the age of 27, petitioned
the king for three years' leave to pro
ceed to the continent to study the mil
ltary art, as he says in his petition, to
be able on his return to employ his ac
quirements for the good of his country.
This petition was granted, but the count
also asked to be allowed to retain his

There is no sentiment about Grizler
Ho is close and is not easily alarmed. It
is not surprising, then, that the doctor
assumed the utmost gravity when Griz
ler called to present the case of his wife.
"I'm greatly afraid, " said the bus
band, "that her mental equilibrium is
disturbed. She is not like other women
and not as she used to be."
"What are the symptoms?"
"You may regard them of a negative
character, doctor. To begin with, she
never opens her fashion papers of late. "
"Bad! Badl Very bad I"
"I feared as much. The woman who
lives next door called last night and
wore one of tho most elegant hats I ev
er saw. You know that 1 am not given
to noticing such things. Mrs. Grizler
never seemed to see it and said nothing
about it after the caller had gone."
"Awful, " exclaimed tho doctor, "aw
ful. I've known your wife, Grizler, ev
er since she was born. No one ever had
brighter mind or a happier disposi
tion. I can't understand it. Used to be
the life and beauty of every company
oho was ever in. Does she co out?"
"No, i, or entertain. Never mentions
tho theater, burns .-ill invitations and is
without tho slightest iuur(.sl t t.
cial whirl. I would give halt x -ortu
to see her the girl I married. "
"Done," snapped tho doctor, and he
wrote out tho strangest prescription on
record. It called for horses, carriages,
fine raiment, jewels and a well filled
purse. At the bottom was a receipt in
full for 250,000. There was no chance
for . Grizler to weaken, and now his
wife is one of the most brilliant women
in the swim. When she and the old doc

AN ECLIPSE OF THE SUN.
fcoinber and Terrihle Was the Scene at
tho Moment of Totality.
Mrs. Mabel Loomis Todd, writing in
The Atlantic; of an eclipse seen in Jar
pan, says: "Just before totality, to oc
cur at 2 minutes after 3 o'clock, I went
over to the little lighthouse, taking
up my appointed station on the sum
n it, an ideal vantage ground for a spec
tacle beyond anything elso I ever wit
nessed. Grayer and grayer grew the
d:iy, narrower and narrower the cres
cent of shining sunlight. The se.i faded
to leaden nothingness. Armies of crows,

with heavy baste to the pine forest on
the mountain side. The French man-of-war
disappeared iu the gloom, the
jnnlvs blended in eolorlessnoss, but
giass and verdure suddenly turned
strangely, vividly yellow green.
"It was a moment of appalling sus
pense. Something was lunng waited for.
The very air was portentous. Tho flocks
of circling sea gulls disappeared with
strange cries. One white butterfly flut
tered by vaguely.
"Then an instantaneous darkness
leapd upon the world. Unearthly night
enveloped all things. WTith an inde
scribable outflashing at the same sec
ond, tho corona burst forth in wonder
ful radiance. But dimly seen through
thinly drifting cloud, it was neverthe
less beautiful, a celestial flame beyond
description. Simultaneously the whole
northwestern sky was instantly flooded
with a lurid and sfartlingly brilliant
orange, across which floated clouds
slightly darker, liko flecks of liquid
flame, while the west and southwest
gleamed in shining lemon yellow. It
