More Than a Horsez.BreedinX Will Pay
HERE will be a famine in the
- mule market in the next few
years, as the result of war,
that will prove very trouble
some to the Sounthern farmers. This
is the opinion of every nae raiser and
dealer in the Sou',hvwest. It has sent
-up the rrice of the sturdy and stub
born animal that doEs the bulk of tbe
farm work south of the Ohio A."
'Potomac; and the price still tends up
ward, and will cost the British War
Department half a million mnore than
its original estimate for mules. Bat,
however great the advance in price
it will not mend the matter or prevcnt
The mule has been found so neces
sary in war and the American mule so
superior to the Spanish and Italian
animal that there has been a drain on
the market in this country which it
cannot stand. The market, more
over, was caught in a somewhat de
nuded state, with a smaller crop of
animals on hand than ever before.
Mule raising for some five or six years
had ceased to be as profitable as here
tofore and many mule growers had re
tired from business.
The bulk of the mule crop is grown
in Missouri, Kansas, Kentucky au]
Tennessee, the animal being shiopd
to the South and Southwest. There
was a steady decline in prices until
1837, when, in consequence of the
Spanisi War prices advanced. This
decline is partly attributable to the
fail in the value of the horse, due to
the areater use of bicycles, trolley
cars, etc. The horse, however, has
fallen off more thaa the mule in value,
and the latter, in spite of ignoble
origin, commands a better price.
The average value of a mulo, includ
ing the young and old, is $14.9G; of a
horse only $37.40.
The Cuban insurrection brou:;ht
the mule back into favor and created
a demand for mules, which has con
tinued ever since. Just now there is
a periol of war, especially in tropical
countries, where the male is an abso
lute necessity. The demand for the
animals has, therefore, greatly in
crease!I, and at the same time the ad
vauce in the price of cotton has caused
the Southern farmers to improve their
I places and increase their stock, w.hich
they greatly needed. There is a su.li
cent amount of mule stock left over
to supply the present demand, but at
greatly advanced 1.rices. But when
this supply is exhausted it is going tc
cause a mule famine. The mule crop
is a slow one and not to be harvested
in a single year like corn or wheat o
colton. There arc comparatively fen

beeg-ti me the nmul es ar<
put upn the mar a i-:AI J
.male fauine. There is the predic
tion, if it can be call a prediction,
based1 npon the solid fact that the
United States has cut down its output
Iof mules from thirty-three to fifty pes
cent. just at a t-ine when th.- demand
for mules has become greater than
ever because of war.
The export of mules from this coun
try a year- ago was not over 1000
aunnually. In 1837, with the Cuban
wvar, it rose to 8000J. It was probably
20,000 to 25,000 last year and will be
even greater for 1900. The Spaniard~
first began the export of mule;3 for use
in the Cuban revolution. They found
the animal extremely valuable and
indleed necessary in their camplaigns
against the Cubans in the mountains.
They had to travel long distances fromi
the railroads, and th.ey needed lat ge
numbers of pack mules, animals that
could stand the climate of Cuba. A
Spanish commission was established
at New Orleans for the shipment of
mules to Cabr, and perhaps 10,003
were sent to tl~at island to help sub
due the Cubar~s. On the very eve of
the war between the Unite:l States
and Spain, Spain still had a large
number of mules in this country. A
cargo of the animals had been placed
upon the Spanish steamer Buaenven
tura, which was about leaving for
Havana, when an order from Wash
ington stopped the shipment on the
ground that the mules were intended
for the Spanish army to be used!
against this country., The animals
were disembarked and driven back to
tbe stock yards,and the Buenaventura,
which had remained here dangerously
late in order to take on the animals,
put out to sea, only to be captured by
the American fleet in the Gulf and'
condemned as a prize of war. The de
cision was subsequently reversed and
the value of the vessel paid over to the
The Spaniards announced them
selves well pleased with their experi
ences with American mules and de
clared that , a bountiful supply of
these animals doubled the efficiency
of an army operating in the field, and
having long expeditions to make.
When the United States went to war
with Spain, it protitedl by the experi
ence of that country and supplied its:
army in Cuba with a large force of
mles. The same thing was done in
the Philippines, and the Government
demand calle'd for 15,000 animals.
Then came the Beer war. The
British War Office had heard of the
experience of Spain and the United!
States in the use of mules in war, and
decided to try the animal. It also
ade New Orleans the headquarters
of the mule purchasing business.
Bme 12,000 or 13,006 mules bayvd al
ready been sent to South Africa. The
nimals have given satisfaction to the
British Government, so much so that
the order has been increased to 2i.
000, and will probably run up to 40,
000, with from three to four cargoe
of mules leaving New Orleans eac
week. The Boer sympathizers in
Cape Colony have endeavored to
arouse a prejudice against the Ameri
can animals brought there, and the
papers, which are known to lbe luke
warm, are filled with stories that the:
imported mules have brought gian- i
1,6 eot=ntry. There is an outbreak or
rlanders among the animals, but thatcc
)utbreak came after the animals .and
,d in South Africa, and was ps:sibly MA
tie to the exhausted coiiitioi in j
which the animals reached Africa,
wvhich rendered them prone to the
many diseases that prevail there de- tn
structive to horses and mules.
The Afrikander protest against tho
importation of American mules has
led the British Government to order
the inoculation of all the animals witii
the Pasteur serum before being
suinped from here; but this inocula
tion has shown not a single glandered D
animal, thereby going a long way to
prove that the outbreak of glanders
among the American pack animals
was not brought there by them. In Bi
no wise dissoaded by the protests of co
the native farmers of the Cape Colony th
against the importation of America
mules, the British Wrar Ofeo will in
crease the amount of its purchases; ha
and after experimieuting with Italian
and Andalusian mules it-bas closed its
purchasing bureaus in Naples and
Gibraltar, and will use only American
auimals bought in the Southwest and fr,
shipped throngh Ne v Orleans.
Tie extent of the purchases will b
depend, of course, on the duration oi
the Boer war. Present appearances
would seem to call for 30,000 or mori
mules. War is a heavy consumer of
mles. They wear out in a compara
tikely short timae, for they receive
very lititle attention-one of their
chief merits being their toughness
and their ab-ility tc take care of them
selves and to ndure all the privations
to which they may ue sabjected. They:.
are completely used up and of little
value after a campaign, as the United 0
States found when it tried to sell b
i some of the supertinous mules em
ployed in the Santiago campaidn. t
Whether the mule would be useful e
in a war in a tenwperate country is a
question that cannot well be determ
ined. His toughness, his stolid
ness, his ability to gct along with lit.
t!e care, to stand any climate, and to n
exist with far less water and food
than his half brother the horse, would c
I seem to make him a valuable animal t
for armnf paching purposes in any
climate, but to his importance, value I
and indeed necessity in a campaign
Iin a tropical or semi-tropical country c
the United States, Great BriLaim and
Spain can ail testify. He is now 1
more important to an army than a
horse, ain'd as essential as the artiliery f
I!lc Withont him au army caa no
longer move any distance without
danger of ruuning out of its snoplies.
The recent fight at Nicholson's Nek
bore evidence to the importance of
the mule in warfare; for the result of
the battle was largely due to the
mules, which ran olf and left the
British without ammunition-these,
by the by, were Spanish, not Amerl
ccan mules, the first cargo of the latter
having not yet reached Cape Colony.
At present nearly all the mules at the
front in South Africa are the Ameri
can animal, who are giving Generals
Baler, Gatacre and Methuen .vala
able assistance in their canmpaign.
It can be readily seen from thxeqe
facts why a mule framine is threatened
in the early fnture when the present
supply of uiules is exhausted. _Mule
br eeding has star ted up largely in alt
pats of the West and Southwest, in
nonseqnence of the improved value of
mares is now very limited, and it will
be somne years, before the new cro'> of
ruimas is on the market. -New York

the thoroughbreds; grouped around
massive barns, cottages, orchards
gardens. Everywhere are shade

king a veritable equine paradise.
A HORSE PALAcEr
:n the centre of this thoroughbred
>artment is the pride of Daly's
Lrt, the famous "Tammiany Castle,"
ated on a plateau which rises gen
fully 100 feet above the surround
lands. Mr. Lucas designed the
tie and will show the favored ones
:r it with a good deal of pride. It
a one-story brick building, fire
of in every detai!. In it are only
stalls an]1 an offiee. These stalls
eightee feet square and have a
k celin"' tvrel e inches in thick
s. Eae stall is not only plaster
but wainscoted and finished in
solid ogk, with ventilation a the
bottom, brought from the roof. A
perfectly equable temperament is
maintained the year rond.
At the rear of the barn is the im
mense granary of soid stone. A mac
adamized walk runs all around the
castle, and this is all rocfed over,
forming attractive verandas; these ver
andas are literally enmeshed in sum
irer with the choicest of vines and
flowers. In the front is over an acre
of green velvet lawn; all about are
beds of ilowers. In the front is over I
an acre of glittering sand, while foun
tains are playing in every available
spot. :In this department are kept the C
finest stallions; Hamburg, valued at
$75,000; Tammany, Ogden, Bathamp
ton and Inverness, costing Marons
Daly over $250,000, but which no sum
could purchase from him now. All
are well known as royal stallions and
winners of the largest prizes ever
offered. Here are also quarteredi the

the racing men of America look for
The standard bred or trotting de
partment is located in the lower lands
and over 1000 acres is devoted to it.
Like the thoroughbred department,
everything is in the most elaborate and
convenient form. Paddocks, barns,
all built with an eye to the greatest
convenience, but still pleasing to look
at, both outside and inside. There
are about 100 brood mares and the
I foals there. The entire ranch, every
department, is connected by telephone
with the stock farm office, which is in
Hamiltoi, in the rear of the "Ravalli
County Ba nk.
FAMED FOR ITS DOGS.
Another thing for which the ranch -
. is famous is its dog kennels, which
- I are all grouped around Tammany
f Castle. The - different strains and
breeds are well known to dog fanciers.
One can almost pick out the dogs in
Butte which have come from Daly's
I kennels, so superior are they. Au
- other sight well worth seeing are the
v hatcheries and fowl coverts, also situ
- ated on the plateau. Every kind of
a pigeon is to be seen here; every kind
of game cock flourishes and English
I and China pheasants aboand. The
- pea fowls add a picturesque touch.
y As for domestic fowls not a breed can
,e be named which s not here repre

small Southern town recently the ver
diet gave such satisfaction to every~
one that a lodal laundry advertised itJ
would give a week's washing free of
charge to the jurors.

Soldiers and Cross-Eyed Women.- t
AlI-British soldiers share .the conto
mon superstition against meeting
cross-eyed wvoman. A reservist wh T1
recently journeyed'to Aldershot to ye
join his rq' ent- nder. orders for i
South Africa, w ~ friend oti ths
eve of his departure' front: ."I .
shan't come back -this trip ig~ fllow- *
there was a cros's-eyed wehec in the E
train as I came down to joi. She
looked at me all the time, cdnfoundl
her, and you know what thit meau?.
I sall get the knock journey."

ings came true-hie wak~ne of the~ over
Grenadiers who fell at Belmont, andf
Ihis fate has strengthened in one or men
two minds at all events, the belief repri
that the sight of a cross-eyed woman
is inimical to the safety of a soldier
going on active service.

hard coughs. bronchitis,asthia,and the
