Bottom Facts About Mules.
The Only Animal ilia! EHrtn't

A Humorous Review uf the Animal froiii
Historical ami Oilier Stand Points.
[Cjudrgc A< Quinhy in the Huston Globe.]
The mule is the only animal that
Noah didn't lake into the ark with
hitii. I have Iool|cd over: the freight
list carefully, and could not see a
nude way-billed for any place. So
clear headed a man as Noah did not
dare to take one on board, as he
knew be would kick a hole through
her in loss than .a weck. 1 don't

risk of ills-pilling off than on Noah's
lli' was a'dread ful level hoiidyd ?uan,
and before the freshet was over every1
body on earth icali/.ed the fact.
The origin of the mitie is crivolnp
c<l in a good deal i?fmystery. Tradi
tion informs us'lhat when the flood
had subsided and ihe :irk h id landed
on .Mount A rural; Nosih was very
much surprised in one of his fust
obse'rvaiions to find a good healthy
mule standing on the top of an ail
joining mountain. The same tradi-'
tictii informs us that the mule is the
.> ily aiiiiiial that lived through the
Hood outside of the ark.

Tin.' word nude comes froih the

of Train's lectures, but you cannot
discover why this is so, any more than
y<u c;in why a woman cannot put oil j

Ihc mule lias one more leg than a
milling stool, ami can stand on one
and wave the other three rounds in
as many different directions: He has
(inly three senses?hearing seeing
and smelling. He has no more sense
of ta-ite than si stone jug, a id will e.it

and lie don't care two coats whether
it 1)?' the per cent, or niucly-uine.
All lie ask.-? is lo pass him a'oiig his
plale with whatever happens to be
handy round the pantry, and he
won't go away and b'ow how p >6r the
steak is. He jnsl eat.-; v ha (ever is set

.Mules arc naturally deaf, hat that

They are hung by hinges to the -ides

quite a tasty business isdone in males'
t ars. '1 he cars arc cut. oil'and dried,
and sohl for snow shoe?, and then the
stubs are trimme! up and the mules
arc sent South and sold for horses. In
this way a great many fine horses
were purchased for the army by the
United States.
Ill were it) have a large picture of
innocence to hangup in my parlor,
aud I did hot wish to sit for it myself,
I I should gel a correct likeness of :v
inide. There is innocence enough
depicted in ri mule's countenance to
tit .out a Siiuihiy School class. It
looks as guileless as.an angle worm.
A ihule never grows old or ?lies.
Oi-ee brought into existence, he con
tinues on forever. The original mule
is now alive somewhere in tlic South.
Mules are chiefly found in the South
and West. They have boon more
abused than Judas Iscariot. A boy
who would not throw a stone at a
inulc if he got a chance, would he
considered by his parents as to > me i n
to raise.
Tlic mule is a good worker, but lie
cannot, he depended on. II e is liable
to .strike, and when a mule strikes
human calculation fails to find out
any rule by which to reckon when he
will go to work again. It is useless
to pound him, lor hu will 3t?n I in >re

Down South, when they have sur

barn yard to play, where there is a
loose , mule. They always bid them
good-bye wdion they start out, for
they are sure, the parting will bo'
final. This is the most eccouoiuical 1
style ofTunerafnow in the markets
? To fully npprcciata the mule one
should listen to his voice. You never
can really km. w whether you like a
mule or not till you have beard him
sing. I attended a mule concert at
Fort Shelling. The program ma open
ed with :i soprano solo, and then
swung into a duet, and then prance I
iiifiiilo a trio, followed up by a quar
tette, and ending with a full chorus
by 150 mules. I didn't hear the whole
thing, for when I came lo the regi

One of the dead certainties about a
mule is that he is sure-footed, especi
ally with his hind feet. He nevjr
misplaces them. If he advertises
that his feet will be at a certain spot
at a certain time, with a sample of
mule shoes to which he would call
your attention, you will always find
them there at the appointed time.
He is as reliable as the day: of judg
ment, and he never cancels an en
gagement. Every man n >w living I
who dove a mule team during the
war now draws a pension.
*? 1 never owned a mule I caitic
near buying one once. He was a line
looking animal; his ears stood out
like the side spires on an JO pi-copal
Church. His tail was trimmed down
so that it looded like a tar brush lean
ing up against him; He was striped
oil' like the American flag, and
list phaCl's cherubs never looked more
angelic than did that mule. He lo ik
ed all innocence, though he was. in
no sense. Tho ownersat in the wagon,
with his chin resting on his hand sind
his elbow resting on his knee. In the
other hand he held a stick with a
brad in the end of it. I examined the
mule and asked the man si few ques
tions, and out of mere form inquired
if the inuli! was kiiid.ot if lie kicked ?
"Kind? Kick?" said the man, and
those were the last words he ever ut
tered, lie reached hisstick over the
front, of the wagon, and stuck the
brad into that mule. Jt was awful to
see si man sntilled out as quickly as
lie was. It almost took away my
breath he went ho suddenly. 1 never
saw the thread of life snap so abrupt
ly as iL did on that occasion. I!<?
didn't have lime to leave a message
for his family. That mule simply
I ducked bis head, anil then a pair of
heels flew out behind; there was a
crnsli, a flying, of splinters, and that
was all; and the next moment that
mule and 1 stood alone, my lace cov
ered with astonishment two feet deep,
and his covered with a part of an old
bridle. The. next day I read an ne
count in I lib telegraphic news of a
shower of flesli in, Kentucky. I was
the only man that could,explain that
phenomenon, and 1 did not dare to,
lest I should he implicated in the
affair u itli the otlfer mule.
1 have seen death in many forms,
hut I don't recollect of ever seeing a
funoral g?lten hp with less pomp and
display ihaii-^ii that occasion. If I
had my choice, to work in a nitro
glycerine factory, or take care of a
mule, J should go for the factory, as
in case of aiij?xplosion, there would

An Oriental Ruler s Cruelties.
When the French finally reduced
Constantino, one of the Algcriho
cities, in 1848, the palace of Iladj
Ahmed excited general admiration,
and the women of his large harem
caused unusual curiosity and com
passion, from the tales spread of his
cruelty to them. He sprang from a
wealthy family of the place, and had
been khalifa under the Hey I.) rah am
el-linbbi, but exciting the jealousy of
tlia't ruler, (led to Algiers. There he
won the gooel-wiH of the pasha, aud
in 1820 became himself liey of Con
sta tit i he.
His cruelties were the theme of
e* cry tongue. A summer house 'used
to he shown in his garden where he
was accustomtal to '-it and smoke,
while his harem, all attired in their
finest array, passed one hv one before
him. They were required to keep
their eyes cast down; their arihi fol l
eil across their breast in a modest at
titude, t.'ne ?tiny one of these women'',
as she passed through the garden,
plucked an orange. The llalj Ahmad
ordered her hand to he nailed up to
the tree.
One of his four wives was an Ital
ian girl named Aicha, carried oil,
when in hild; with her brother. She
was a queenly young woman, and,
after the French occupation, was in
structed, and in time married a
French officer. Her influence had
been great with the Iladj Ahmed,
ye! when her brother, after rising to
a liigh rank in the army, discovered
finally that his sister was in the har
em, the Iladj Ahmed put. him to
death for daring to ask*to see her.
One day some of the women found
a pipe, and, to divert themselves,
dressed one of their number in a tur
ban and robes, and set her to smoke
while they waited upon her. Iladj
Ahmed burst in upon this childish
scene, tore his mock representative
from her seat of honor, had ii ;r in ra th
sewed up n? a piini-htiictit lor daring
to place his pipe wi:!ii:> it, a:i 1 ordjr
ed her to be put to ! >ath.
From time to ti.iv, darin ? hi; role,

1 hilling at. three f tones, the box was
placed oil the middle one, the sack
slipped in, one end of the box raised,
and the sack shot out down a pre
cipice of r-ix: hundred feet. Some
hours lattr men approached the sack
on the rocky hank of the river, opsiied
i it, took out a woman's corpse, and
conveyed it to the grave.
