THE ASS AND TIIK HORSE COMPARED. In one respect the ass is more delicate than the borse-it cannot thrive or multiply in regions where the snow covers the ground for several months of the year. A horse will bear a severe degree of dry cold under which the ass would die. Asses are not known in Northern Russia and an eccentric traveller who made a tour in Norway with three gipsies and a donkey found the latter as much an object of curiosity as a tame bear in England. Even at the present day native Egyptians prefer the quiet ass—which neither rears, plunges, nor shies, and keeps a steady pace, quite fast enough under a tropical sun—to the more high- eouraged horse, except on occasions of parade. In fact, in the East the horse is chiefly valued as a ty charger for war purposes; the ass is the hack for daily use where the much-enduring camel is not employed. A wealthy Copt will give as much as £200 for a white ass of good stature and easy paces. .0
