Homes Wounded In Battle.
Horses wounded on the battlefield
are duly attended to when no danger
to human life is involved. The veteri
nary officer in charge is expected to
follow close on the fighting line and,
together with a number of aids, to in
spect properly wounded animals and
give instructions for their removal or
slaughter, as the case may be. The
veterinary surgeon is naturally expos
ed to considerable danger, but if his
work is not carried out during the
progress of hostilities in all probability
it cannot be accomplished afterward,
for, although the royal army medical
corps Is allowed to proceed to the res
cue of the wounded men under the
Red Cross, the members of the army
veterinary department are not permit
ted to attend to the injured horses, be
cause they are not under the protection
of the Geneva convention, which niake*
no provision whatsoever for wounded
At the conclusion of the battle, if it
has been decisive and one or other of
the combatant armies has been driven
from the field, a party of veterinary
surgeons, with their assistants, is sent
out to examine every animal that has
fallen and to shoot such as are badly
wounded. Those suffering from only
Blight injuries are collected and taken
to the veterinary hospital lines, formed
as fixed camps and established on a
similar basis to those of the royal ar

that has been looked for since the coal

afternoon. A pos*e hurriedly gathered
by Sheriff Toole of Schuylkill county to

A man was killed and a little girl
wounded, and several others fell more or
