Invesligation revealed that the
pack mule is not the only member of
his family that has? peculiarities that
can be played upon or must be hu
ndred. It was learned that the lar
ger mules, once teamed up or pair
ed, must thereafter be ' worked to
gether if each Is not to suffer a loss
in efficiency. Two strange mules
will not work together anything like
so well in the brinning as they will
a fw weeks later after they becor.i
well acquainted and then if they ar?
separated the whole process must be
rone ov r again.
Tlire Types Required.
The government rfiuire three
types of mules; animals that weh
from 1150 to 1250 pounds for whi el
muies; mules that weigh from 5
pounds to 1150 for leads; and tht
little flat-backed, short bodied mule
which rnay weigh almost anything
tinder 950 provided he has tht- legs
to hold np the 2'5 pounds te is
supposed to carry.
In this connection, it might be
remarked that the comparative lif
ferenee in the qtialitj.of horses and
males observed in th stables of the
different units at Camp Zachaty
Taylor and In the.nprrajs of the re
mount depot furnishes, an excellent
illustration o fthe effects of the war
on the supply o fsuch animals JieM
in this '' country.
1 The country has been combed for
horses and good animals which ap
parently are difficult- ta obetain.
When the "good animals" term is
used. It means a cavalry horse true

to tyyf ' conformation and having
the ability to carry weight. It is
true some fine anirrals are to be se "
among the horses now obtained fy
the"nrmy and the isroportion of good
artillery horses is fairly high, but
even thd casual observer fan not
the diffrnce between the peneral!y
high quality of mules and the ordi
nary quality of horses
Iforse Is Se fiet.
The horsse and mule are not used
interchanEoably by th army. There
fore the lack of pood horses is to
army men particularly lamentab!
If thp task requires quickness an.l
conrape. If it is one that a sense of
pride or a. '1ov of parade will carry
through, the hors is chosen. There
fore th cavalry and artillery usi
only the horse.
If there is a hard thankle-r-s job
to be dne day after day throsh
ny conditions and over all ginids
ef trails; If there must at time3 o
fhort rations then the mule gef
the call. ITe wfll ro forward nn

at noght he will Mk for twontv-five
per cent le?s grain. I?e will thrive
on this and at the end of a hard
campaignbe squeaf;ng and kkkins
np his heels when the horse woul-1
be reduced to ineffectiveness.
Whether horse or mnl", every ani
mal boujrht for war dity mnst-have
ben broken. When the animal gets
into the army there are so man"
things it must be taught tfire Is no
time to waste on rudimentary things.
It first to the corrals of the re
mount depot where it Is held with
ether animals of "the same general
type and conformation until a repo
sition for animals of that sort is re
ceived from some unit to which It
Team Work Taught.
Then begins the anin-als' real ar
my training. As with a man, th?
first thing is to drive the lessen
home that the first duty is toward
the group to which it is assigned,
nl the man this soon becomes loyal
ty to the squad, the platoon, the rom
pany and the regiment and results
in team work. For th animal it
raeans the lesson Is driven home so
j relentlessly that it is the, duty of a
I wheel'er, or a leader, or a number
I two orthree. (the-horses making
! rp the middle team of a six horse
1 artillery team) to do thus and si
I that an animal that has been
j through, this whool will never lo
its moUt effective work anywhere
but fn .the-position to which it was
accustomed In Its training. Put any
one of these animals In another team
In a new position or change the po
sition of the animals In the gun team
to which they belong, and the effec
tiveness of their work is destroyed;
the team work Is gone.
To the cavalry horse much the
fame thlg applies. Put him into
fralnintr. accustom him thoroughly
to what Is expected of him. and hh
rider may fall or be shot from th
saddle and in most cases hewill hoM
his position and thunder forward
with the rest of his command in tho
midst of the charge.
At camp Zachary Taylor this
training of animals has progressed
as far as has that of the men. but it
is going forward every day. and its
effects are to he seen plainly as are
the results pnf the training the men
tfcemselvVs have experienced.
