The wild horse of America, although now native to the soil, is descended from the tribes of wild horses that still rove the plains of Central Asia.
When the discoverers of this continent first landed, there were no horses in either North or South America.
Centuries before the horse had been introduced into European countries from Asia, and had become common all over that continent.
When Columbus arrived here on his second voyage in 14U3, he was accompanied by one Cabrea de Vaca, who brought with him a number of horses, which were lauded in Florida.
Cortez took horses with him V assist in the conquest of Mexico, as did Pizarro in his conquest of Pern.
The natives were greatly af frighted when they beheld these strange animals.
At firt they supposed that the mau and the horse were one complete creature, somethiug like the centaur of which we read iu ancient fable.
And when they siw tho rider dismount und disengage himself from his steed, their amazement knew no bounds.
In time the savages learned ihat the horse was an animal that had been subdued by man; and that it was a separate creature; but they long dreaded tho horse of th Spaniards as a beast of prey.
And when the horses escaped from their masters, and made their way into the freedom of the forest, as they did after a space, the natives avoided them as something to be shunned.
The quarrelling Spaniards neglected their steeds, which soon found homes on the plains of Mexico, South America and the unexplored interior of North America.
From these escaped animals have sprung the wild horses of America.
The mustang, as the natire horse of North America is usually called, is generally of a bright chestnut color.
The horses marked with odd colors and patches are called pinto or painted by the Mexicans, and calico by ti: ! Americans.
The mustang is smaller than the domesticated American horse; for we must remember that the larger horses now found in our stables are the direct descendants of later importations from Europe.

THE AUSTRALIAN CRICKETERS IN EJvGLAND. A cricket match between the Australian team and the Eleven of the Marylebone Club and ground, vv played in May I last, at Lords. . The match was splendid, and there was an enormous attendance.
The English team, with nine wickets down for 4G5 runs to their credit, con j tinned their first innings, Barnes and i Sherwin the notouts of the preyious day resuming their places at the wickets.
Barnes added 10 to his score, making it j 105, and Sherwin added 6, when the latter was bowled, and the innings closed for a total of 481 runs.
The Australians went in for their first innings, and succeeded in putting together 184 runs.
Tho highest scorers were i Bannerman, b, 32 ; McDonnell, stumped, G4 ; Murdoch, c, j 25 ; Blackham, c, 57. McDonnell was badly missed early in his innings.
The fielding of the English team was, on the whole, pOnounced rather weak.
The Australians being 297 behind their opponents, had to follow on, but in their second innings were only able to add 182 to their score, the highest contributers being Bannerman, b, 22 ; Giffen, c, 20 ; Murdoch, not out, 42 ; Spofforth, b, 37. The Marylebone Club thus won the match in one innings, with 115 runs to spare.
The Australians lost the services of Mid winter, who injured his hand, and was unable to bat.
Quarter Crack.
The presence of a quarter crack is usually an indication of some diseased condition of the foot.
In other words, the wall of a perfectly healthy foot sel dom cracks.
In this case the crack may not have been present when the animal was purchased, but the abnormal condi tion of the foot certainly was.
The treat ment is to pare the wall about the crack away in the shape of a letter V, with its base resting upon the coronet and its apex extending downward to the lowest ex tremity of the crack; also pare that part cf the wall that rests upon the shoe about the vicinity of the crack, so that it can not possibly have any bearing.
Require him to have a bar shoe: apply a mild blister to the quarter, and, with frequent changing of the shoe, the trouble will gradually grow out.
If, however, tho foot is so badly diseased as to cause him to become lame without the assistance of the crack, you should blister the entire coronet and turn him to pasture for a couple of months.
