Ho IV He Happ<  ätJ to  Fecaliaritles of tUe American Horse. i"ew Aleu Who Can Draw the Western Hoi  copyright 1889.  In a cozy little house in Mott Haven, New York City, just bej'ond the Harlem river, lives FredeiicRemington, famous in the magazine world for his drawing of the horse. Readers of the great weelc-lies and monthlies find a facination in the life and nature of his work. Ho gained his position as an illustrator almost at a single bound. Four years ago he was a ranchman of the Southwest, without art training, making an occasional sketch or two for amusement in the intervals of cowboy life.  A THOROUOIIRTÎKD RUXÎTER.  (Drawn b.- Frederic Remington.)  In the soring of '86 he climbed up the the stairs to the art editor of "Harper's Weekly" with a i.-ouple of sketches on the Indians and horses in the war of Geronimo, the Apache chief. He had just returned from that country at the end of his ranch life. A Yale' College man, in 1879 he started out to make his fortune ranching in the far West. An expert horseman, a shrewd and keen observer from the start, he soon rose from a cowboy into a cattleman. The distinction on the plains is this: The owner of the ranch is the cattleman, the employe, whatever his age may be, the cowboy. Thus, grizzled old frontiers-œeri are often the "boys," the wealthy ypungster from the East the "man." But Remington's ranch did not prosper. The Indian troubles and hard luck pressed down upon him, and in 'B6 he gave it lip as a failure and came on East. Here, "down on his luck," he determined to make a trial of his artistic propensities, fostered only by a bare month's study at the Yale Art« School years before. His perfect understanding of the horse aiid his close observation during seven years of ranching now stood him in good stead.  In these trial sketches handed to Harper's there was a great lack of technique. They bore no comparison with the finished work of the regular staff. Yet there was in them a wide knowledge of the West, a reproduction ot horse action, photograpically wrong, but one that could be felt as correct. Harpers' not only accepted the sketches but sent him back to Arizona for others.  His first sketches of Geronimo's cam-j^ign were printed late in the spring. Those he did on his special mission there appeared throughout the summer with a series of articles entitled, "Our Soldiers in the Southwest." During '87 and '88 appeared drawings of Mexican horses and men, frontier studies, Kansas cattle sketches and pictures of events in the East, such as racing and football scenes, and incidents on a man-of-war. But all this time it was as a drawer of the horse that be stood out most brightly.  In the early part of 1888 he illustrated for the "Century" a series of papers written by Theodore Roosevelt on "Ranch Life in the Far West." Here he was in his element and his remembrance of his years in the saddle came forth in brilliantly graphic drawings of horse action. Later in the year he made drawings for Roosevelt's thre.e "Century" articles, "Frontier Types." "Sheriflf'a Work on a Ranch," and "The Ranchman's Rifle on Crag and Prairie." Hia knowledge of technique was constantly increasing, and what he knew of horse anatomy was brought into still better use. Within tlie last few months he has illustrated for the "Century'' and written as well four papers on wonderings among the Indians and horses of the plains. Last winter, armed with letters from ouï War Department and accompanied by a detailed Mexican officer of engineers, he visited the Mexican army in their camps and sketched the types. Theses ketches "Harper's Magazine' has just published. Be.sides these mor» Important pieces of work, h> has furnished countless sketches to varioui publications, and painted many characteristic scenes. But as a painter h« makes no pretentions. He "isT^urelj an illustrator. Yet he works awaj uonscientiously with his brush, looking toward the future in that.  AN AMERICAN TROTTING HORSB.  (Drawn by Frederic Remington.)  Every year he spends several months in the West, picking up new materiaL When in New "Sork. his afternoons are spent in the saddle, the mornings given up to work. His studio is a curious place. The wails are lined and the corners; piled up with saddles and bridles and bits of trappiAgs of the ranchman and the Mexican horseman. There are studies of all types of horses scattered about. Remington himself is a ;: sturdy, stocky man of fine physique, tall, round-faced and smooth shaven. He has the artistic temperament -to a dot, but it is an athletic one. His ways of work: and bis ideas are^interesting/«« iphiwaotaKlstio of the man: who in^ t^  s;-' í  ' í--  suorti years' ñas. abcaint^u a ranK cnac most people work a life time for.  "It wasn't because I knew how to draw that I mot with my first success," hesays, "for 1 didn't; but because I knew the West bettor than any other man. I have been all over it, from the City of Mexico to the Saskatchewan up North. They recognized a latent quality in my work which none other had.  "My drawing is done almost entirely from memory. I understand the horse 30 that ev-3ry movement of his lias fixed itsi'lf upon lue. For a color effect, a hand o - n f id in the sleeve. I sometimes use a model, but that is all. The model is inactive, there is a stiffness about it," and he struck an illustrative pose. "The .subject is alive and in action. Nature doesn't pose.  "As to drawing from a photograph, I am thoroughly familiar with all instantaneous photography, but I never, use the camera now, I haveh'ü for a year past. The photograph lacks the interest which I seem to be able to give to horse action. And the best attestation of that is that my horse is incorrectly drawn from the photographic standpoint. We know that the photogragh must be correct, but it doesn't give the impression. Now it is very easy for the artist who knows how these horses move to observe and feel the motion, and then reproduce it.  "People have no time to look at tlje commonplace. The interesting never occurs in nature as a whole, but in pieces. It rarely ever happens that one gets a thoroughly good picture from a photograph. It's more what I leave out than wliat I add. 1 merely fix the salient points.  "I think this: If one desires to successfully draw, the horse he should know the typi> and the differences, for horses are as different as men. Whae success I have had has been because I have á horseman's knowledge of a horse. No one can draw equestrian subjects unless he is an equestrian himself. The most of our American horse artists live in the middle of New York and aren't out among horses. These are the men, who, in a picture will put an Indian on a ?700 horse instead of the scrubby pony he really fides. Knowing the type it is next the task to delineate it. 'J'hen the oblect is accomplished.  "The matter of saddlery and frontier trappings, the perfect knowledge of tbem, opens up anotheranda very wide subject.  "The Polos and the Russians, as a nation, are the best horse artists. They not only paint and draw them but they lead the world in their horse modeling in bronze. ChiJniiJnsky and Kowalsky are the most famous of these modelers. In Poland and Russia there is a wide diversity of horse stock and strain, ranging from the thovouThbred in the cities tp the Cossack pony. Those people live closer to their horses than we do here. There is a great deal in the liking of a horse to be able to draw him well. But the American artist should easily lead, it would seem, with such a variety of types as we have, the Western pony, the American trotting iiorse, and the thoroughbred runner. These only need to be strongly individualized tp win success. Now there is too much sameness in the hoi-ses of England. In France, though the artists paint mag-  ® tirii wkstkrn pony.  (Drawn by Frederic Remington.) nificently, they hadn't the knowledge of the horse, b.-ir Rosa Bonheur and perhaps Moreau, who, they say, doesn'b rely on models at all."  The outline sketches accompanying this were drawn by Mr. Remington to illustrate what he has here said. The individuality of the types is certainly very strongly marked.  Cromwell Childh.  THE AGE OF HORSES  Interesting: Inr<>rin:ition for the tovora of Tliis Useful Animal.  The average age of the forty-one animals that make up the "Obituary of Stallions" in the last i.ssue of the London "Stud liook" was a little under seventeen years: while the fifty-four that are mentioned in the previous volume averaged a little over the same figure. I'hese horsos were of valued or they would not of course, have been sent to the stud: and' it'thfis^pjSiilr'S'' that, roughly speaking, a hundred horses of sound constitution, and of whom it is safe to assume that every possible care was taken, lived on an average as nearly as possible seventeen years. A few of them were killed after havirg met with accidents, two orthree died w-hile on their voyages to other countries—for the sea is' vóry fatal to the horse, many, including several Derby winners, having died on shipboard—and one,. The Rover, was barbarously slaughtered by Irish moonlighters; "Murdered in Ireland, November, 1884," is his epitaph in the Stud book. Fits, paralysis, influenza—Lord ■Ronald fell a victim to this disease in 1888—inflamation, abscesses, rupture, diseased heart, peritonitis and broken blood vessels, are among the causes of death. Victorious, a son of Newmin-ster, is described as having "died of old age," when no more than 14, and The Dart succumbed last, year to the same complaint when 25; -Thunderbolt, a son OfStockwell, livedtobe;il,:however, and is the patriarch of recent stallions. Hermit, of living horses, is bale and hearty at the age of ajS, having won the memorable Derby of 1867.  . Oiroulation of Water in Boilers.  The circulation of water in boilers la attracting more attention from engineers and the importance of lit is being more generally recognized.

Tubes placed zigzag never give good results.  He Was Jixpe«tetl To.

Arrest of K. <i. W'ood on u Charge of; libel—The Case Gro^-s Out of tUe famous «allot-Box forgery IJuriug the Xate Oliio Campaign. cincinnati, Nov. 33.—The political sensation of Friday was the arrest of E. G. Wood, of the famous ballot-box forgery case which played so prominent a part in the late Ohio election. The arrest was made at the instance of Governor-elect James E. Campbell, United States Senator Jo.hn Sherman and Congressman ButterM'orth. It is said the disclosures in connection with the case will cause a profound sensation in the political world.  The aflidavit charges AVood with perpetrating a libel againsi; William Mc-Kinley, James E. Campbell, Ben But-terworth, John Suerniun, S. S. Cox, W. B. C. Breckinridge, Charles S. jNIcAdoo, J. R. McPherson, .f. R. WhitingandF. B. Stockbridge, all members or ex-members of the Hou.se or Senate of the United States, in that he counterfeited their names to a forged and fictiiious contract, with lualiciou.s intent to disgrace these men and damage them in the eyes of the Nation, by leading the people to believe they were in a corrupt scheme to make money by violating the laws of the LTiiitcd States by being pecuniarily interested in the passage of the bailor,-box bill ponding before Congress. The aflidavit furthermore alleges that R. G. Wood caused this forgery to be published by delivering it directly or indirccfcly to Governor J. B. Fox*akor and to otheivs unknown to afilant.  Mr. Wood's bail bond was fixed at 81,000. He tried for two hours while under arrest to obtain bail, but failed. He protests innocence.  TO HEAR PATTI.

Old  How the Comlcfioi- Astouisliod an  — VasseHsrcr.  ■ Every body who travels on the Pittsburgh division ' of the Pennsylvania railroad knows Conductor John Dinges. He is one of the greatest jokers in the service, and whc.^i not punching tickets is busy telling stories or perpetrating a joke. Conductor Dinges' ears are historical.' They arc romarkable not for their size, but for tlieir wonderful pliability. His favorite trick is to double up'his ears and then stuff them far into thô orifice. This makes them look as if they had been mashed with a crowbar.  Thé other night, v.'hile the train was spéeding along tov.-ard Altoona at the rate of-^fty-llve miles an hour, Dinges dpubled-his ears and parsed through the fourth car. Nearly all the passengers were ladies. They regarded Dinges with amazement. The conductor's face wore a look of superb unconsciousness. One old lady with iron-gray curls and a pug nose could not take her eyes from the ears. W^hen bing-e,s passed through the car again h.ir curiosity was so great that she could not resi.st the temptation to stop him;  "What's the matter with your ears, conductor?" she asked.  "Nothing," he replied, innocently, as he elevated his eyebrows, and his ears flew back to their normal position.  The old lady nearly fainted.—Philadelphia North American.  SXiïGHTÎ.Y AMBIGUOUS.
