Reports of the contrary decision were reeclted with anger and dismay. Crowds, mostly of women and old men. assembled in the streets and noisily discussed the matter. Under the eyea of the police, however, the crowds melted away and the people returned to their homes or went to the cafes. But at the latter place pictures of the Kaiser, the crown prince, Hlndenburg, and Ludendorff were taken from the walls and thrown Intq the streets. For some minutes there was a rain of pictures of Germany's military Kreat ones pouring from Berlin's private and public house Out of doors the people gave vent to their feelings ty trampling- the pictures underfoot.

No longer will it be necessary to oper ate on the throat of the poor army mule, as the French veterinarians are eaid to do, to prevent the resound ing he-haws by which the beast wakes the echoes, arousing the Humphreys engineers from their toil weary slumbers. After many experi ments with gas masks, feed bags, and the like. Stable Serst. Dave Traugott. of Company F, Fourth Regiment, who back In Pennsylvania had great op portunities for studying the char acteristics of the mule, has discovered a much simpler method. A little bag of sand attached at night to the tail of the mule. Sergeant Traugott discovered, worked the trick. Accordingly each night the bags are attached to the tails of all the mules In the stable and Traugott and his comrades get their sleep undisturbed by the blatant brays of their charges. The doughty sergeant's knowledge is the result of deep study and much re search, gleaned from close association with the animal. According to Trau gott, in order to bray successfully snd with wonted harmony, a mule must stretch his neck and elevate its caudal appendage to a horizontal position at right angles to the vertebrae. Denied this privilege by the weight of a small rock or sack of sand, the beast id absolutely unable to bray. LEAVESBHTO T CAMP MEADE.
