ON BLIKD HORSES. The way in which blind horses can go about without getting into more difficulties than they ordinarily do is very remarkable. They rarely, if ever, hit their head- against a stone waR; they will sheer off when they come near one. It appears from careful observation that it is neither cliade nor shelter that warns them of the danger, for on an absolutely sunless and windless day their behaviour is the same. Their olfactory nerves doubtless become very sensitive, for they will poke their heads down- wards in search of water fifty yards before they come to a stream crossing the roadway. It cannot be an abnormally developed sense of hearing which leads them to do this, for they will act alike though the water be a stagnant pooL Men who have been blind for any length of time develop somewhat similar instincts to blind horses. ♦
