Three-Year-Old Army Animals to Be Broken by Experienced Trainers and Then Taught the Game of War. El Reno, Okla. Picturesque old Port Reno is to be made a "remount station," a place where new mounts will be provided for cavalrymen. It is purposed to turn out more than thousand head of horses and mules each-year, ready for the military. The cavalrymen who have been sta tloned at the fort have gone to other posts, and as soon as stables can be built the horse school will open. England and France have remount stations, but Uncle Sam has not had one heretofore. If the one here proves a success, it Is probable that all horses and mules for the United States army hereafter will go through a course of training before graduating into regular army life. "A horse usually lasts about seven years in the service," said Capt Letcher Hardeman, who is here ar ranging for the opening of "school." "A mule Is good for ten years. The contractors who have been supplying tho army horses have been buying them, between the ages of four and eight years. Our experiment will be with three-year-olds exclusively. - "There'll be no broncho-busters here. We don't care for any man who would mount a three-year-old, sock a pair of rowels into hi3 side and fight It until it's broken in spirit and broken in heart. That kind of breaking may do on the plains, but it won't do for the United States army. A good cavalry horse must have a cavalryman's spirit. "Nor will the cavalrymen them selves do the breaking. This work will be in the hands of civilians, under the supervision of army officers. The best trainers we can find will be em ployed. After the horses have been broken, cavalrymen will teach them the game of war. No animal is to be roughly handled. Kind treatment goes a long way with a horse in cultl-1 vating a good disposition. ; "We believe there is economy in a remount station. Not only will we get a better, more desirable lot of horses, but by taking them as three-year-olds we will get from one to five years more service from them than when we took them four to eight years old. They may be bought cheaper, too. "A rebellious, unwilling horse can almost disrupt a cavalry movement and the sooner It has 'I. C Inspect ed, Condemned branded on Its side the better off that troop of cavalry is." About 60 men wiil be employed at the Fort Reno station, and they ex pect to break in 800 or 900 head of horses and from 300 to 400 head of mules each year. The old barracks at Fort Reno have practically been aban doned for months. The fort is on a reservation over which bands of Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians still rove, but they commit no depreda tions. The Darlington agency is just a few miles distant and Lo is careful that he does nothing which might pre vent him from drawing his quarterly pay. He remembers, too, the Indian police, mounted on fast ponies, who feel the importance of their blue uni form and brass buttons. Saw Off Horn; Loosen Hoof. Allentown, Pa. A cow belonging to William Mast of Standard scratched her head with her hoof and caught In the latter one of her horns, which is very badly crooked and crumpled. The cow fell upon her side, and the noise of her struggles awakened the family. Mr. Mast had no alternative but to saw off the horn in crder to releaso the hoof. French Land SPRINGER, N.-M. C. E.
