Old Horses. The term, as applied to horses, is generally intended to convey not only the statement of their age being past marks in the mouth', but also_^ the common impression that comparatively .they are of little<value, if past eight or_'nine years. Now, if we rightly understand it, the horse has1 not attained his full growth and perfection of bodily frame, until he has passed -his seventh year; and until growth is .attain- ' ed, he is just as'unfitted for extreme .hard_, labor as a man before arriving at full manhood. In this country, the_L practice of putting horses to work ' at two or three years, usually results in their becoming broken-down, by o _^ ver-driving, _,or( overstraining, before flijey, _bave attajritjdjr *4r. uiv ness df muscle, and_>capabilityifbr-endur'hiff labor.-** Thus it is « EBat" horses "ar_^_ofMo '_^ 'with us, rendered gofliparatively, ,vaiuelepsi before-they have _inf truth arrived at an age; of full powqrs- and _^endurance.

Its parts ' are somewhat complicated, yet their dl 6si_|_tf is simple and obvious. The_^ hoof is ' not, as it appears to the careless eye, a niere lump of .finsensible bone fastened to the leg by a joint. It is made up of a series "of *thin layers _^ or leaves of horri, about five hundred in number, nicely fitted to each other and forming a lining to the foot itself. Then there are as many more layers belonging to what is called the " coffin bone," and fitted into this. These are elastic."

JPaith. When Charles V. imperiously required the' Confession of Augsburg to be abandoned, and gave the Protestiht leaders only six months more in which to make up their minds finally, the cause of the Reformation was thought hopeless. But Luther exclaiined : " I saw a sign in the heavens, out of my window at night; the stars, the hosts of heaven, held up in a vault above me; and yet I could see no pillars on which the Master had made it to rest. But I had no fear it would fall. Some men look about for the pillars, and would fain touch them with their hands, as if afraid the sky would fall. Poor souls! Is not God always there?"—Dr. Gill
