Some forty!years ago, the managers of a
race course pear ' Brownsville, on the
Mi onongahola ¡published a notice bf a race,
one mile heati, on a particular day, for a
purse of §10 . “F iee4 for anything with
four legs and^hair on.” A man in the
ncighborhod ; namd
that he was in the habit of riding to mill
with his bag of corn, aud he was deter-
: mined to enter him for the race.
, He said nothing about it to any one.
i but he rode him ro ind th< track a number
i of times on several moonlight nights, uqtil
the bull bad ¡the bs ng of the ground ptefty

He yode yvith spun, wh^ch the bull con

C ost of W ar —Between the year
1814 and 1864 1,782,000 men were kill-
edin battle. Of these 2,148,000 were
Europeans, 164,000 inhab tante of the4
other continents. Thus, during 49 years,
the average annuel numperwbo thus per-
ished amounts to 48,800 men not inclu V
ding the-victims of disease engendered by
Consequences- of war. The Crimean
(1853 56) was naturally the most
men having perished
during its coi
course. 176000 of them died
eld o of battle, 334,000 from dis««
ease in hospital

60) cost the Lives of 330,000; the Anglo-
Indian war (1857-59) 166,000; the Rus
sian and Turkish war 1827 29(. 193,000,
the polish insurrection of.
of, 1831, 190,000 ;
civil war ol f Spain, which raged from 1833
to 1840; 1 72,000 ; the war Of Greek inde-
(1821-29), to which Lord By ir
ron fell a victim, 148,-000;
148,-000 ; the various
campaigns of the French in Algeria, from
1830 to 1850 146,000; the Hungarian ’
revolution, l-|2,000 ; the Italian war of
1899 60, 129,874, which may be thus an-
alysed» 96.874 fell on thewelj of battle,
and 33,000 died of disease ; of which 59,
664 were Austrians, 30,220 French, 23
l 00 Italian^, 15, 010 Neapolitans, and 2,
399 Romany. A curions result may be-
deduced from the above—namely, that a
greater number perish by disease incident
to a eamp life than are actutally killed by
shot and shell or any other engine of des- 1
truction. As to the sums* of money-
swallowed up by these wars; it is impossi
ble to arrive at anything ' àpproaching a
