OLD CLAIM IS GRANTED
After Five Years Scia1 Woman Receives $175
MULE GETS THE BLAMiE
8CIO, April,' 9. During the
summer : ot 1 92 5 a government
pack mule stampeded a farm
team belonging to . Mrs. Alice
Burton ot the Bilyeu Den region
near Sclo. -.The team ran- away
with a disc and one of the ani
mals sustained a cut on the leg
and had to be hilled.; .
Five and a half years later
the congress -of the United States
enacted a special law authoris
ing the payment of S17I to Mrs.
Burton to reimburse her tor the
loss . of the mare. Notice of al
lowance ot the .claim . was re
ceived by Riley 6helton of Sclo,
who had been looking after the
matter for Mrs. Burton, through
Congressman Hawley and Sen
ator McNary. The special law
was approved March 3, 1931,
A son of Mrs. Burton waa
working in the field when a fed
eral geological survey party with
a pack outfit passed the place
from Snow Peak, where field
work "had been tn progress. A
gate at the Burton farm was
open and one of the government
pack mules went Inside to take
a rertful roll on the newly
turned soil. This the animal did,
and when It got up it shook its
pack, twisted its tall and saun
tered away near the farm team,
which had been left standing for
a few minutes. The white can
vas which covered the pack be
came soiled with the new black
loam and It looked terrible to
the Burton team. In fact. It
was entirely too much for the
farm team, which snorted like a
buekaroo brone, kicked over the
traces, and forthwith frantically
hurried away from there. In the
wild run from the : discourteous
mule and its spotted pack the
farm team finally came to grief,
proving that a disc is a danger
ous thing to draw when getting
away from a homely pack mule.
The leader in charge of the
geological party terminated the
injured mare's suffering with a
bullet from his revolver. The
growth and the standing water
on the fields caused considerable

ground that the government was
not - liable for the assigned rea
son that the gate at the Burton
farm was open and the pack
mule was ' not driven onto the
premises and therefore was not
a trespasser. It required five and
