In the midst of the attention we ay jiving to the personnel of our armies there la a feature not less Important than the feeding and the physical condition of the men, and which we aro apt to overlook. It is the condition and training of the army horse. Horses we almost as necessary an adjunct to a successful war as are men. With the exception of carriage horses for use on the boulevards of large cities, and of race horses—of which class i we probably breed the 'fastest In the world—we have run behind other nations In the production of good and •ervlceablo horses. This was because having such splendid railroad and , electric facilities, we have had less need for horses than other people. One of the results of our new expansive '• policy will be to enlist public Interest I In the cavalry horse; for while we may . have soldiers and a navy that can beat , the world, without strong and speedy . horses capable of covering a march and capturing a position by. a dash, we cannot be fully equipped as a nation. The effect of quick-firing guns will be to reduce the relative efficiency of ; cavalry, and of infantry from those of jthe olden time, but nevertheless the i horses will still be a powerful factor I in. war. The style of horse needed in the army is that known in the older j; countries as the hunting horse, an ani- £»al with enprmous chest, clean limbs, i heavy loins, deep quarters and free I moving action. Such a .faprse when [well-groomed »nd .bred will carry a I mount pf 150 pounds across country at- Ian excellent riding pace fpr the space pf flv§ pr six hours, and will be coro- Iparatlvely fit and fresh fpr a pro"anted march at the close. , Hunters thu» trained ia the field to |"«ugh .work, ' make excellent army horses. Npt being 'puch accustomed £o the delights of tbt chaw IB this ^usjr country, we have not developed be SJurppean typt & hunting bprse; ••* be Is coming. %» best type p? the American horse use In the ariaj, no.w CJJJBSS Jrom {be. neighboring It in claimed by ,''chunky" ' ,. and PUQtaiBpUQ WSt that tl far better aon than Pf great iuc]j »pqa ft when it t^t |?&f JPfK PPPPWS «f diers, to protect them In case of a charge and to furnish food to the army in case of famine. Many a soldier has protected his own life fighting an enemy from behind the dead body of his horse, and when a retreating force was cut off from Its base of supplies, an army was ofen provisioned by the sutler's forces returning to the scene of defeat and cooking the horaea that were killed In battle. And in the Sioux campaign of 1878 General Crook was so hard pressed for food that he had to kill some of tha horses, the command subsisting on the meat for several days. The well-trained cavalry horse fights some upon his own account. He rear* upon his hind legs and strikes venomously with his forelegs at the sight of an enemy whose colors he knows nearly as well as those of his master. Ip a charge of Infantry the horse being so much larger, offers a greater target than the rider whose chest is protected by the erect neck and head of his gallant steed. Horses thus save the lives of the men, and few phases of war are better calculated to inspire terror lo unmounted troops than a desperate adr vanclng charge of cavalry at close quarters, with dust flying and hoofs clanging, and the discharge of carbines; keeping music to the war-li. a neighing of stallions on full gallop. The akir mlshes during the Peninsular war wsre mostly of this character, and the Puke of Wellington used to say that a man and his horse thus equipped, were equivalent to five infantry solders, though since the introduction of re,, peating rifle* the proportions Pt Wel- llngton's time are sadly altered now. It is somewhat sad to state that' despite all the usea of horses in war, and notwithstanding the great exposure of this noble animal to dftnger }n, q,age of battle, statistics show.the fle^th pj a greater proportion, pf. jhprge^ from disease, neglect or n(ar,rat)an w f,haa frsw actual slaughter in^ption.^'vy'a.nj pf food, want.prwftter, .ftR^-?r*n.t!ipJ rest, the common miflortupe' pf .*y*ry campaign, kills pvw-*«y per csnt, pi the hpr»e«; and pverwp/k^ dj«ea«» and .. ,. fy »>&&' larger nrppar- than are actually ; Ji4lle,d ijc"waft T , ^ew gopd people, who '-jraipgi f t$e'ft. nif ht8 dnaming about >the! parltttffleV! _ |) JJtn H — — J Al. — AAJMU«XI_.« _ * J-tf _ .._.(• .
