[COPYRIGHTi 1S9C.] A year ngo those farmers—and there nre thousands of tliem—who had been, making most o.f their money raising oommon or "railroad" horses—W nbout the bluest class of men in the United States. To-day they are ago-iii in pood heart, their eyes are bright with the sparkle of hope and their steps havo the buoyancy that is characteristic of successful men. Then they were convinced that the industry in which their capital wus invested, and from which t hoy hnd won their profits for years, wax doomed; that they imi!>t- abandon forever the one business to which they had devoted Uioir lives and witli which they- were familiar, and seek other ways to make their farms productive. Many of them, indeerl, sold their horses at big sacrinVi! and closed out without ceremony. Now they are lx;g-uiiiiug to go into business again, their pastures and paddocks are once, mere being brought into use, and they are satisfied that the oiulool? is full of prortiise. This most desirable change in the status ot ei great Industry has been brought about so gradually thnt few pcirsOM not direet.lv engaged' in the horsy business know anything aboutit. Its I'nuse, according 1 to Mr. William F. Doom 1 , oncof the best-known horse dealers in the United States, has been thy apprehension — somewhat tardily shown, to fie. siir',—by the English, of (he facts with regard to the hor.se market in the United Slates.' , Ti, w;is some time last year," sa.ifl Mir. T)ocrr. in converx:ition with thi» writer :i day or two ago, "that o-ur friends on the other side began to send their buyers- over here. They hnd never clone so to any extent before. Possibly this was in some degree because they did not favor American horses, but chiefly for the excellent reason that American horses cnu-ld never before be bought nearly so heaply as those of foreign breeding, I Flu: Jirst English agent wentnt his buy- perhaps with some hesitation. But and more, from Philadelphia, bu .Boston bus {lie bulk of the ship mi.-i.Us nt present. They nre sent at Rattle ore sent on vessels especial!} fitted'ilp for that purpose. It costs. $.17,00 to send' the horse across WU.UM- on a steamship. JTorscs are gooi sailors, as a rule. From its geographical position Chi cajro in the most natural, center /or the gathering together of great nunr bers of horses. Illinois produces main horses; Indiana, Missouri nud Jow; are all contributory states; Kentucky the great horse'state, is not far away; and there is a perfect vortex of rail way transportation facilities centering at the lakeside metropolis. According ly, many of the English buyers are .v present making Chicago their head quarters, and lire much in evidence at the big duily horse sales there. The scenes ut these sales are full of interest urn! the various contrasts afforded bj the mixing- together of Western horse breeders and their wen, Chicago selling agents, and cocknsy horse buyers, produces a crowd not entirely with out value to the discriminating- observer of "types." Buffalo is another town of some importance in the new trade in horses. It is the point at which they are transshipped on their eastern way tothesc-a, and it i« a gathering place or Canadian- bred-horses and some'that have been bred in Ohio und western New York, so, in JJiiff;i!o, ns well as in Chicago, many English agents gather to buy in the market that has been established for horses in n portion of the old-time stock yard. "Although the breeders of horses have begun again in earnest,".continued Mr. Doerr, in his talk, "it will be four years at least before the effort v/ill be much felt on the market here. In the meantime prices will go up—they will be higher, in my opinion, than "hey have been. . T do not mean thnt 'railroad' horses will bring much higher prices for 7-casons which you already understand. In fact, in a few years there will be no 'rai'ro;id' horses to speak of for sale here, since the new horse-breeding 1 ,, frra is to be conducted along'other lints. American breeders are at last finding out, what fine horses nre. They have been learning from' the 'horse shows, whose influence lias been'oxceedingly far reaching. They have been learning, too, from bitter experience. When the trolley eame, and with it the bicycle, •Dally. 1D«J17 except Sunday. Leave Arrive.

This has practically been done nv/ay with of late years, an<3 many i'arinei-s now go to New York for their horses, the Fame as soniii summer, boarding-house keepers do for their miik. Farmers in the neighborhood of metropuliuin towns find thnt they can put their holding's to lx:tt«r and more profitable uses than raising horses thc«o clnys. Decides, it costs quite as much to raise a horse in Long 1 Islnnd, New Jersey or Connecticut as to buy one, and pe.rjmps more. In addition, the farmer is never certain ,vhen he lias raised hi.s colt that it will lie sound and willing, whereas he can go nud buy a horse from the big New York denlem, keep the horse a specified number of da.ys on trial, and finally take him on a g-uunmtu<>. returning him if he proves unsatisfactory. Re- ma-rkable changes have been made in this regard within the last few years. Time was when the term "horse-trading 1 " was held by many to signify everything that IK tricky and catching 1 . But (he' horse business now is about as clean and "above board" as any traffic in the land. Certainly no dealer in any other commodity than horses would allow buyers to take purchases home a,nd iry them before acceptance. An interesting feature in the horse trade in. New York is the use of certain streets near well-known horse mar- iets as ground for breaking green lorses. Nothing 1 is more surprising to the rural stranger in the big city than to see men putting young 1 horses through their paces on East Twenty- third and Twenty-fourth streets. Al- .hough many of these horses are almost entirely unbroken when their street training 1 begins, the nomber of .ccidents is small, and it, is claimed by those who train them OB Kew York .trcets that horses there broken are setter broken than anywhere e'sc. DEXTER MARSHALL. WORMS THAT CARRY'LAMPS. What is CASTOR IA Castorla is Dr. Samuel Pitcher's prescription for Infants and Children. It contains neither Opium, Morphine ncr- other Narcotic substance. It i* a harmless substitute for Paregoric, Drops, Soothing SjTiips, and Castor Oil. It is Pleasant. Its guarantee is thirty years' use by JttUlioiis of Mothers. Castoria destroys Worms and al):iy« feverislmess. Castoria prevents vomiting 1 Sour Curd, cures Diarrhoea and Wind Colic. Castoria relieve! teething troubles, cures constipation and flatulency. Castoria assimilates the food, regulates tho stomach and bowels, giving healthy and natural sleep. Castoria is the Children's Panacea—the Mother's Friend. Castoria. "Castoria Is an excellent medicine for children. Mothers have repentedly told me of its good e0eet uftttt their children." DR. G. C. OSGOOD, _ I,owe;l, Mass. " Cnstoria fa the best remedy for children of which I am acquainted. I hope the day is not far distant when mothers will consider the real interest of ihtir children, and nseCastpria instead of the various quack nostrums which are destroying tlicir Icvcd ones, by forcing opium, morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful agents down their throats, thereby seadtog them to premature graves." DR.. J. F. KiNcm:LOE, ^ Couv'ay, Art, Castoria " Castorin is so wc!K-dapted K>children. thC I recommend it as superior to any prescription known to me." ir. A. ARcnisn, M. JX, 111 So.

The first shipment of consequence was sent over rather early last year, and as soon as the 1 horses were seen and tested there a rush of English buyers to the states began. Ever since then the shipments have beeji constantly increasing. I do not believe the traffic lifts even yet reached its height, since there are at least a hundred English buyers now in the liuifT, picking 1 up horses wherever they may. Seven, or. eight hundred horses a.re now being sent over every week, n.nd I shonli'i say the. total shipments of laiJroad horses to Kngland this year are likely to reach 25,000 or more. "How do they use those horses over there? To haul tram cars with. The English have not yet adopted electricity ou their tram lines to any extent. Their adoption of street cars in the first place iviijj slow, nnd although they are DOW using them more freely, they are still behind us to the method of hauling 1 them. Some American horses are being'used for other purposes, I suppose, bu t not many. The grade of horses which we formerly called 'railroaders' are no much better adapted to tram work-than any other sort that 4hcy are ull practically snapped up for that purjK)se. "Prices? Well, the American railroad horses cost, delivered over there, from $3-5 to $175. This, of course, includes the commissions ot the English buyers and the American agents, the transportation cost to the seaboard, nnd the ocean freight,' No; prices of railroaders have not gone up on this side, for the reason that there -is now not much demand here for thnt grade of horses. They nre 1 still bought for delivery wagons, light trucking, etc., but .the call for- such purposes^ has riot been, large enough to cause a rise in prices." • Curiously enough, according to Mr. Doerr, the larger proportion of the American horses sent to the English markets are shipped from Boston, as better-terms can b'e had from' the steam- nhip» people from* the Huh. : {han •from New York. It is true there are occasionally shipments from New York and With them both the slump in prices of the cheaper grades of horses, the prices of first-class horses never wavered. In fact, handsome, sound, carriage and coach horses were never so high as now in this country. They ore almost impossible to get. This is because the folks who have mojiey to spend ur,e horses now just as much as they ever did. They may have their 'wheels,' all right, for fun, but they wont their horses and carriages for solid show all the snine, and'they wnnt better kines than they ever -wanted before. Why, there are plenty of beasts going abroad now to 'haul trammers that would have been thought elegant carriage horses ten years ago. Good coach horses range now from $800 to $2,'iOO the pair. Those that can be bought for the lowest figures nre not considered of much account, either, nnd there is no lack of buyers for any that may be 'offered at more than the highest rate named. Five-thousand-dollar carriage teams are 'snapped up without delay, whenever they are oflered; the troxiblc is that there are so few that are really of this grade to be offered. JVo; there -are not many sales of hjgh-grnde horses in Kngland. They are worth more here thnn they nre there; arid in my opinion that, and the fact that they are not plentiful here, are the reasons why Bng'lish coach horses nre so often sold here, ...... . "In spite of the high prices commanded by coach horses, I can hardly say thnt it is a surely profitable business ns yet. ..It often happens that a colt is bred and reared with the greatest care and only to.turn out.practically worthless as a conch horse, to the great disappointment and' damage of the breeder." Mr. Doerr did not know anything ubout the! talk', that many Americau horses are now being bought up for service :in' various -European cavalry forces. Mr. Max M. Caspari, however, says .that fc'.'fe'w horses'are' being so purchased on this side. "They are not for the Germans or Italians, 'however," said he, "though for what army they are being bought I will not say. The shipments of ^'remounts,' as we call "horses BentKacrww for cavalry purposes, afeiiot very laif*e/ as yet, but I beli«ye..the tiusinesiB'is s'urt to increase rather than decrease. One lurlonfl .PlioHphort'Hccut J^lKl't Given Out by Southern Eurthwnrmn. It might lie imagined tuat the sufo- erraneau regions, from what we know i them, were devoid of light and pro- lortinnately dark and gloomy; but lierc arc certain noolis and corners of tie so.il beneath our feet that arc at nies illumined in a reninrkablc ivny. Th'o^liinncls of the worms, moles and rcrta'iii'insects which live hi the ground ju'O nol enveloped in complete dnrkness. l.ut have lights of tlicir own nr.d for their own peculiar purpose. I lirst noticed this while walking -hrough an orange grove in southern California . some years ago at night, says C. F. Holder. It was ra i n i ng heav- ijy and very dark, and as I moved cautiously along over the ground that had he-en saturated by a week's rain, I was suddenly startled by a perfect blnxo of .•ight thnt radiated from mj' foot. Radiations of a rich yellowish light fuirly covered (.he ground for a few inches. A clod of'earth as large as a silver dollar blazed brightly, and I picked it up to solve the mystery.™ The light w:is a greenish yellow, clear and beautiful as though a strong glowing- substance with iin- intense peiie- 'rating power wus held behind a glass K-ureeu or something which.prevented the heat from being felt—altogether a. ' very mysterious and ghostly gleam. A'little investigation disclosed'the secret. In the clod of earth was a simple earth worm; not even a large one, but an insignificant fallow scarcely two inches iong, who seemed to be covered with ;t luminous fluid or secretion that had penetrated the earth, making it j-hosphorescent, t-o that when my foot touched the clod it flew in every direction, blazing like living fire. The tliscotiuectcd pieces apparently burned for several moments, and the ?nrious secretions that easily came off upon the hand could for a few seconds lit used as luminous puint, gradually dying away or becoming more vivid when disturbed. As to the ti.sc of the light to the worm no little speculation 1 has been indulged in. I believe one office is ns a signal to others, 'to attract, possibly to warn, enemies and frighten them. Few birds, probably would luive ventured to attack nn animal lh:it bore so striking a. re-semblance to a burning ember. In the ocean marine worms are found occupying the' mud or sandy bottoms inuch as do the worms of the land, but tho ujr.rine forms are gorgeous creatures, some us mr.gnificentns hummingbirds, glistening ,with iridescent and metallic tints. One which I l-.ave often observed in 'Pacific waters M'ould first be seen at the bottom -as a suiull spot of yellow light', gradually'increasing in size until as large as a teu plate. When several were seen at once the bottom hnd the appearance of being dotted with moons. Occasionally they would rise to. the s-.irfnce and throw out the wonderful secretion that would change the water lor perhaps n foot- about them "to a'flffry .hue which would gradually fade aw.iy.. This 1 worm wns'hnrdlyhaif an inch in length, yet 'capable of producing thin wonderful light.

The Martian meteorology is less complicated and more pleasant than thati-f the earth, says the North American He- view. There the weather is almost always fine, especially during summer. Very seldom are there clouds even in winter. Generally, when we are unable to distinguish through the telescope the details of the geographical configurations upon the planet the fault is in our own atmosphere nnd not in that of Mars. It is very rarely the case that when our atmospheric conditions are good we are unable to see these details. During the last period of observation of ifars in 1894,1, to speak for myself, encountered only 35 days (from October 10 to 25) when the surface oi carried away all the young women tney could Jay their bands on. Such of them as contrived to escape from captivity happening to return to Helmagen cct the time of the fair, kissed their friends and relatives, and even 'strangers who congratulated them on their wonderful deliverance. ABATING A NUISANCE. DOR Nelson DU- C»o» Queer M>an« of c of a Snarling Cnr. ' The London Spectator tells a dog- story of unusual quality: Nelson was one of ourselves. Where we went he went. He was especially fond of following our trap, and nothing, not even his dog friends, could divert him from his faithful attendance at our wheels. One summer we were staying at the west coast village of Saltcoats, where the sands arc brond nnd flut, and wi> the planet was veiled by its own atmoE- often drove along the road skirting Uie 'phere. Clouds nre excessively rare on j bay. Nelson followed, of course. The the surface.of Mars, and perhaps exist at all only ns fogs or light cirrus; they are not clouds of rain or Etorm. These veils nre very infrequent there, while they nre perpetual upon the earth. Probably there is not a single day in the year when the entire surface of th? earth is uncovered so that it could be satisfactorily observed from space. The two planets have two meteorlogic^l systems that are absolutely antithetical. Furthermore, in the rarefied atmosphere of'Mars there can be no powerful winds, like the trade winds, and the predominant atmospheric currents which rule terrestrial climates. Occasionally, however, observers hare noted long streaks of snow which appear to have been, produced by currents in a tranquil atmosphere. SchiaparelH, for instance, observed such streaks ("trainees") in November and December, 1SS1, around the northern pole, and extending a considerable distance from it. But such things are dogs of the village seldom molested or. interrupted him, but one rash little, terrier repeatedly rushed outof his garden gate ns we passed, and bit at Nelson's heels. Time after time Nelson declined to notice'the insult, but one day his patience become exhausted. Turning' around he caug-ht, the unhappy terrier by the back of the neck, carried him. down the sands and into the water, chest deep, put his paw on him and drowned him, and then carried him back to the dry sand and laid him out there. One crunch of his jaws would havo done the deed, and more quickly; but it seemed as if Nelson had no personal animosity against the dog, or at least had suppressed it, but concluded Ural, the world would be better of! without such a snarling, cur. The normal condition, of Mars is fine weather. KISS FOR EVERYONE. IccU Coffee. Put six heaping tablcspoonfuls of powdered coft'ct—J;iva and Mocha, exceptions, j mixed—into u.
