The Southern People the Best Uorsemeu In
she World-1)eCIloA of t tie Noble
Art in ,he North.
[New Orleans Picayune.]
Not many years ago electricity
was made the moving power of street
cars in cities, and* when the bic3 cle
was seen on every street and road it
was declared that there would soon
be little use for horses as means of
transportation, wbile the military
cities declared that the long-range
guns had made the use of mounted
troops impossible, and the romantic
picture of the war horse rushing with
his rider into battle would soon be-,
come a mere memory.
The experience of the Confederate
war for independence, supplemented
by those of England's war with the
Boers, have demonstrated that mount
ed trops are of greater value than
ever. As the American people are
going to be called on many times to
prove their prowess in battle, and as
volunteers will continue for a long
time to make up a great part of the
United States army in time of war,
it becomes of the greatest value that
the Americans should be good horse
The superiority in horsemanship
of the people of the Southern States
of the Union has been frequently
commented on, but it appears that
this superiority in past years has
grown decidedly more maiked. In
the Northern States it seems that the
people no longer ride horses, but have
abandoned the saddle for the wheeled
conveyance. In a recent issue of the
New York Country Gentleman, a pe
riodical devoted to rural interests,
Mr. Ernest H. Crosby, of Dutchess
County, in that diate, writes as fol
"Visitors of the South usually find
much to criticise, but during a recent
trip through Georgia and the Caro
linas, I noticed one thing in whicb
the South is far ahead of us at the
North, and that is horsemanship. In
aySouthern town on any day of the
yelyou will see a dozen men on
horseback, who have come in from
the neighboring country and are
tranacting their business there, and
it is not uncommon to see a string of
saddle horses tied up before a church
door during Service. Every man who
owns a horse or keeps a horse in the
South knows how to sit on his back,
and as riding is a fine manly exer
cise, conducive to vigorous health
and self-respect, the habit is a clear
advantage to the community.
"In the North, as we all know, our
farmers have forgotten that the horse
*can bear aman on his back, and they
would as soon think of riding a cow.
I doubt, if on an average, there is
one saddle to fifty farms in the State
of New York, and our boys are
brought up in the stable without
ever getting astride of a horse. It
is a very great pity and distinct loss
'to the character of our people. The
buggy is no substitute for the saddle.
With' its comfortable seat. and high
back, saddle invites an erect and vi
rile attitude. On a large farm it is
far more convenient to superintend
operations from a saddle than from a
wagon or on foot, and there is a good
deal of business in town, not involv
ing large packages, which can also
be well attended to on horseback,
and the saving in wear and tear on
wheels would be worth considering,
"We are usually told that people
ride in the South because the roads
are too bad for wagons. If good
roads mean the neglect of this exer
cise, I would go slow in urging the
*improvement of them. But in the
North we seem to fall between two
stools, for we have neither the goodi
roads nor the horsemanship. As a
matter of fact, the good roads excuse
is no excuse at all, for in England,
where the roads are excellent, every
body rides, and the farmer spends a
goodly part of his life in the saddle,
and would open his eyes wide at the
idea of a farmer who did not know
how to ride.
"Can nothing be done to encour
age horsemanship on the farm? We
cannot expect much from the elderly
men, but I am sore that the boys
would take kindly to it, and I believe
that a saddle on a farm would soon
pay for itself in the saving of wagons
and harness. It must be manifest1
to any one who thinks the matter
over that it is absurd to leava riding
to a millionaire class, with polo and
steam yachting, when the farm
e r's son is thrown with borses much'

this respect, and I hopo that, with
the sad examplh of the North before
them, our sontbern brekhren will not
suffer the horseback habit to fall into
It was mentioned some weeks ago
'that when President Roosevelt was
vi.,itirg National Park at Chattanooga
he was escorted by a detachment of
Federal cavalry; but when the presi
dent, who is a rough rider, broke into
a fast gallop, the cavalrymeu, in try
ing to follow him, were not eqnal to
the pace, but many of them fell from
their horses in a most disgraceful;
manner. Such cavalry in a break
neck charge, even if not a single gun
were fired at them, would be de
feated, if not destroyed, from ina
bility to ride.
Major Heros Von Borcke, an offi
cer in the Prussian Dragoons, who
became an officer in the Confederate
cavalry, under the, celebrated Gene
ral Stuart, in his "Memoirs of the
Confederate War," published in 1866
in London and Edinburgh, by the
famous Blackwood firm, declared
that the Soutbern mounted troops
were the best light cavalry in the
world, and he excepted none, not
even the Cossacks.
Mounted men for rapid movements
are What is wanted today in war, and
the army, other tbirgs being equal,

e;t number of them, will wi[ in bat.
EMILE ZOLA'S SUDDEN DOATt.
The Famous Nov.list Aeph3 zated by rnal
Gas-Narrow Escapa of Zola's wife.
The Couple had Just Returned
from their Country Home to
Paris, September 29.-Emile Zola,
the novelist, who gained additional
prominence in recent years because
of his defence ok the Jews and of
former Capt. Dreyfus, was found
dead in his Paris home this morning.
Aphyxiation, resulting from the
fames of a stove in his bed room, is
given as the cause of death.
M. Zola and his wife retired at
3 o'clock last night. afadame Zola
was seriously ill when the room was
broken into this morning. About
noon she was removed to a private
hospital, where she recoved conscious
ness for a short time and was able
briefly to explain to a magistrate
what had happened. M. and Mine
Zola returned to Paris from their
country house at Medan yesterday.
Owing to a sudden spell of cold
weather the heating stove in their
bed room was ordered to be lighted.
The stove burned badly and the
pipes of the stove are said to have
been out of order.
To the magistrate a Mmne Zola ex
plained that she woke early this
morning with a splitting headache.
She wakened her husband and asked
him to open a window. She saw
him rise and attempt to move to
ward a window, but he staggered
and fell to the floor unconscious.
Mine Zola fainted at the same mo
ment and was, therefore, unable to
give the alaim.
Mmne Zola does not know of her
husband's death and it is feared she
may sufier a relapse when informed
of it. It is thought tonight, how
ever, that she will recover.
The death of M. Zola, which only
became generally known late this af
ternoon, has caused a
GREAr SENSATION IN PARIS .
and this evening there was a con
stant stream of callers at the Zola
residence. M. Zola's body lies upon
a divan in the centre of the spacious
drawing room of his house under a
canopy of rare and. ancient hangings.
The body is covered with a sheet a
electric lamps throw their vivid light
upon the waxlike features of the
They were good friends, and in
their early days of indiffere'nce to
femiinty had sigued and sesled a'
contract which directed that the first
one mnarried was to pay $25 to the
other, says the Memphis News.
Cupids in a freakish mood turned
their attention to the same girl and in
the end one ttiew captured tbe prize.
The friendsbip that had stood the
rivary without a crack did niot

wedding came from a n~ekrb city.
