"The most curiovw thing I ever saw
in my travels." said 8. C. Lillia, who
had just returned from Europe,
"was one day in England, right after
friend and I had attended a session
of parliament. We wanted to aee
the stables of Queen Victoria. We
had been told that there were some
splendid horses there, and being in
terested in fine horses we thought
we would take a look at them.
"So we climbed aboard a hansom
nd started. The cabman drove ua
Dp to a big gate, where there waa a
gorgeous fellow with a tail bearskin
bat on. We bad to give him a shil
ling, and we didnt go more than IS
feet before he handed us over to an
other fellow in need of a shilling, and
o on. I think it was repeated about
eight times, and I parted with about
8 -fining, before we got to the first
"There were six yellow horses in
that and mx brown hones in the
table adjoining. Six of these horses
make tip a team for the queen. The
fellow that was showing as the horses
aid these were very fine indeed, and
altogether just the thing for her maj
esty. 'I took a look at them and couldn't
see a thing about them to recommend
them. To me they looked just like
so many common plugs about 18
hands high, especially the brown one
to which ocr particular attention was
directed. 1 said I thought they would
be gentle, and that 1 didn't think the
queen need be afraid of their run
"Suddenly they flared around, and
I saw three of them were rattaila.
Then I was more astonished than
ever. "What,' 1 said, the queen sat
isfied to drive those ornery old rat
tail horses I This beats me.'
-Oh. we fix that all right. said
the attendant, and with that he
whipped down a false tail nice,
black and flowing as you please and
buckled it an. It was done so wfell
that you wouldn't know it was false.
Then be brought down the other tails
and showed them to us. That, sir,
was the strangest thing I saw in Eu
rope and astonished me tbe most. I
never knew they had false tails for
horses till I saw them on the rattailed
horses belonging to the queen.

In the retreat the colonel's head
quarters wagon was missing, so they
were all without rations, save a stray
hardtack or slice of bacon that some
provident man still retained in his
saddle pocket. An incident occurred
here that I shall never forget, and I
should like to know the name of the
man and where be is now. As I lay
there, weary and in pain, hungry and
thirsty, with no prospect of anything
to eat before the morrow, if then.
some one bent over me. I looked up
and recognized ray captor, behind
whom I had ridden off the field. He
held in one band a hardtack en which
was a small piece of bacon, in the
other a tm cup of hot coBeet

Conceding its power of musical re
production by means of wax cylin
ders, which are both cheap and last
ing, the imagination may run riot
without exhausting the field opened
before one. Besides giving musical
pleasure past present computation to
the million, it will do wonders for the
musician. First, it will offer the
composer a means of indicating his
wishes concerning time and expres
sion compared with which the met-
ronone and all printed directions and
expression marks of the present are
but the clumsiest of makeshifts, sec
ondly, it will become agre&t teacher
of mueio, as even the phonographic
echo of the piano, of singing, or of
orchestral work wijl be sufficient te
