"Tho one thing that Impressed mo
whllo In Europe was tho fact that we
Americans do not fully realize the
greatness of our own land, and its op
portunities, and the greatness and op
Dorlunltles of our own people as com

and they were all of a very high type.
One thing that Impressed me both In
London and Paris was that the average
coach horse was a much larger fellow
than we have been accustomed to see
tor that work. I think that we people
here In America should look toward
breeding a larger animal that we have
in the psit, and unless we watch our
solves, we will be Inclined to breed
down. In Naples there wero many cab
horses, and about ninety per cent of the
cab horses driven were stallions. On
thing thst was very Interesting to me
was thst they do not use the bit. They
use an Instrument thst fits over the
nose, and above the nostril Is apiece
which extendi out about three Inches,
and when pulling a horse to stop, they
pull on the nose.
"In going up the Tiber river north
of Rome, almost every wagon that I
met was being driwn by oxen, either
by Undem, or with a yoke. Tho oxen
were all very strong fellows, quite
large, well built, and hsd huge horns
rising above their beads. There did
not seem to be the beet type ot cattle,
nor wsa were any mil; type, i sup
pose their cows, were, of course, rued
for milking purpores, but they were
not apparently bred to either type, but
rathor to tha ox type.
The poorer clsss ol Italians do not
know whst It Is to have meat In any
quantity. The average man Is.too poor
to bo able to buy Deer, as tney wouia
have to pay not leea than twenty-two
cents a pound for IU Klda are used for
flesh there a great deal. The swine
there were very largo, and rather more
ot the type ot the bacon bo than like
our Dcrkthlrcs or Poland Chinas. They
use coats' milk a great deal, and es
pecially In Naples. In the morning
you would see women and mm driving
goats around from place to place, as
the customer has the privilege or Hav
ing the operation of milking performed
In his presence. The goat siltcted Is
milked, and In many coses you will see
a goat being taken up In an elevator, or
up a stairway, wherever the customer
may be, and then mllkod In his pres
ence. "In Italy the tillage Is ot a very In
tensified kind. There, many of tho
Italians have their own vegetable gar
don, and raise their own vegetables.
Here we pay twelve or fifteen cents a
head for cauliflower, and In Italy you
can buy a doxen head ot cauliflower
for six cents, and that will make it
clear why the Italian liable to llvo on

Durke and Ooslln and two others, who
had been Indicted, by Hal! oa a charge
ot conspiracy to defraud the govern

Burke and Ooslln lei tinea tost in

relinquishments. Only tha prelimi
nary facts by which Fulton, aa attorney
for Hammond and his various Interests,
will be associated with this traneactioa
were brought out yesterday, but Heney
promises by the Introduction of further
