tumt of establishing at Fort Keno a re
mount depot for the purchase and training
of horses for the different branches of
army service Is now under way. This Is
the only remount depot In the United States
and If It la successful others will be es
tablished In different parte of the country.
The experiment Is due to General J. II.
Aleahlre, quartermaster aeneral, who be
lieved In It and talked for It during thn
many years he was In regular service as
a cavalry officer. European countries
have Ions; had such departments for their
armies, even to the extent of breeding
The purpose of the remount depot Is to
net the best and longest service from army
horses at the least cost. The average
length of service of a cavalry horse, for
Instance. Is from seven to eight years, and
most cavalvy horses are about 7 yeara old
when pun tinned, though 4 years Is the age
at which preferably they ahoutd begin srrv
h e. This difference la due to the fact that
after a horae la broken at the age of about
4 yeara the farmer want to keep him dur

strength and usefulness, and not until the

Capacity of the Depot.
The remount depot at Fort Reno has a
present capnelty for l.ano horses, which
may be Increased Indefinitely. It is situ
ated on n tract of beautiful land containing
)iearly 10.WO aorca and adapted in every
way for the maneuvering of horses.
The old barracks buildings have been
changed into stables and In addition two
arables have been built. The- depot was
opened In April, 1908, and the flret horses
received In the following July.

that Is being done at the remount depot.
If possible, no horse la ever permitted to
know that there Is such a thin as bucking
it pitching, the idea being to train him,
not break him.
Gentleness is employed at all times. The
average cowboy begins usually by roping
Ms horse, fixing a cruel bit In hla mouth,
cinching hla heavy aaddle aecurely. and
then springing astride the frightened
animal with a kl-yl, a dig of two sharp
spurs and a stinging cut of a quirt. The
horse Is ridden until exhausted or his spirit
broken, and this mothod la continued until
he becomes amenable to aaddle, bridle and
Western II or sea Preferred.
The belief is common that the western
horse Is natdrally wild and vicious, but It
Is not accepted by Captain Hardeman,
who points to Montana range horses at
the remount depot that have been made
aa gentle as the driving horse of an old
farmer. The violent throwing of a saddle
on the back of a young horse frightens
him, and his Instinct Is to rid himself of
the strange object, and hla natural way of
doing It Is by bucking.
At Fort Reno a young horae Is haltered
end an effort made gently to lead him.
He Is pelted and caressed to gain his con
fidence. He noon grows accustomed to the
halter and finally the bridle.
Ills lrga are stroked and In time his
trainer Is able to handle the horse's feet.
Then a blanket Is placed gently on his back,
and this gives way to the saddle, and the
horse la taken to his stall, where he stands
saddled for hours at a time.
Next comes the mounting of the rider.
Unaccustomed to welglrt In the stirrup or
a man on his back, the horse Is Inclined
to shy. The trainer puts his foot into the
stirrup many times before mounting. Once
In the saddle the horse Is no longer fearful

For vicious horses Intended for the ar

ts used. Heavy timbers are fastened to
gether In Tie shape Of the letter A, the
apex of which is attached to a heavy stake
sunk firmly In the ground, and on the
ends of the side tlmbeis are wheels taken
frrm a gun carriage. The fractious horse
Is tied to one of the side timbers, the cross
bar of the latter serving as the Inner shaft.
The outer s'laft swings on a bolt, with
one end free, and Is used to push the
horse against tl e other shaft, after which
the free end ts bolted Into place.
The tugs are then hooked Into heavy
rings and a strong kicking strap drawn
over the horse's back. If he refuses to
move forward a mule is bitched to the
merry-go-round and rway they go. The
hrtse runs In a circle, with a driver In a
soat behind him.
The requirement that army horaes shall

Turning- Point in the Life of the

Westbrook, JMe., Recalled by the
Death ef Governor Mor
TOPHK A, Kan.. April 2-The recent
death of former Governor K. N. Morrill
at his home at Hiawatha recalls some In
teresting Incidents In his life. One of
them is that when a member of a district
school board In Maine he confirmed the
employment of the late Spaeker Thomas
B. Reed as teacher, and later stood by
him and saved him when other directors
and patrons of the school sought to dis
It was fifty yeara ago when Reed, then
about 17, appeared at the Utile village of
Weatbrook, ten miles weat of Portland,
Me., and appllled for the Job of teaching
the district school. 'Westbrook. now a
town of 8.000 people, was then a hamlet.
E5. N. Morrlell, who later came to Kansas
and served this state as congressman and
governor, lived on a farm near the West
brook district school. He had been elected
a member of the school board, and among
the other duties devolving upon that body
was that of employing a teacher for the
eight weeks school term during midwinter.
Reed was a student at Bowdoin college
and was doing chorea mornings and even
ings to pay hla way. He had eight weeks
vacation during winter and decided to put
In the lime teaching a country school at
125 a month. Il selected Westbrook be
cause of Its nearness to Portland.
Story of Tom Keed.
Dr. H. O. IJnn, a Kansan who had spent
many yeara In Washington and was a per
sonal friend of Bpeaker Ree and Governor
Morrill, In a reminiscent talk about the
early friendship between these men In the
llttlo village of Westbrook said:
"I wish I could tell the story aa I heard
Tom Reed teH It In Washington when he
and Governor Morrill were In congrrees. No
body on earth could put It In black and
white as it was told In his Inimitable
drawl, with the twinkle In his kindly eyes,
the jolly laugh or slowly coming smile
that ' changed so marvellously the whole
expression of his face.
"From Reed's deacrlptlon of this, his first
first business venture In the world, the
district was no happy valley by any
means. There waa a neighborhood broil
always on the coala at Weatbrook and one
waa stewing away when he put In hla ap
plication for the district school. It was
there that his path crossed that of Gover
nor Morrill who, though only five yeara
his senior, was chairman of the district
school board. Thomas B. Reed passed the
examination and waa engaged to teach the
school for eight weeks. Governor Morrill
signing the certificate. J
"Reed didn't get along very well, even
at the first, because, as he said, he
undertook to Introduce city methods Into
a country school. He waa very strict. He
insisted that leasons should be learned and
proper decorum observed during school
"When pupils made poor recitations he
sent them back to their seats and kept
them after school hours, laboring with
them long and earnestly. Misdemeanors
Were, visited with severe condemnation
also. I remember of hearing Governor
Morrill ask Reed If he wasn't something of
a csar when a boy.
" "Oh, hang It.' Reed replied, 'what'a the
use of doing a thing unless you do It prop
erly? I was there to teach school. I was
paid for It, and I Intended to earn my
money If I had to fight every day.
One Sample Fight.
"In deacriblng one particular encounter
which led to Heed's arraignment before the
school board, he said his attire waa sadly
rant and disordered and he looked to have
been the under dog in a fight.
" 'But,' the former sneaker added with
a twinkle In hla eyes, 'the other fellow
didn't look very pretty either.'
"The neighborhood row that waa going
on finally Involved the district school, and
chargea of caarism against the teacher or
something akin to It were preferred against
him, and he was accordingly arraigned be
fore the school board. The battle waged
all one day. Chairman Morrill of the school
board standing by the sturdy youth to the
"Night came on and Tom Reed walked
out of the board meeting a conqueror.
With Morrill's help he had been able to
count a majority In his favor. He taught
the school to the end of the term and so
well did ' he succeed that he waa engaged
for a second and a third winter, and he
might have gone on Indefinitely had he not
graduated with honors and gone beyond
the narrow horizon that environed West
brook.' More than twenty-five yeara later Tom
Reed and Mr. Morrill were In congress to
gether, and the boyhood friendship was
re-established. Naturally, when Mr. Reed'a
ambition to become speaker of the Fifty
first congress became known, one of his
most ardent supporters waa Governor Mor
rill of Kansas, together with the balance
of the state's delegation.
Morrill on Reed.
Turing hla lifetime Governor Morrill fre
quently talked of the Intimate friendship
which existed between him and Mr. Reed.
Thla was proved when Red was chosen
speaker. He had it In hla power to reward
Morrill for hla kindness to a struggling
school teacher in the early daya at West
brook. lie made his boyhood friend chair
man of the committee on pensions, and the
Morrill pension law which has distributed
millions of dollars among former soldlera,
their widows and their orphans. Is the re
sult. Governor Morrill frequently referred to
the employment of Mr. Reed as the teacher
of the Westbrook district school, and In
his remlniscenses and speeches In eulo
gizing the man from Maine expressed the
belief that he himaelf In a measure was
responsible for the career of the speaker.
If Morrill had failed to hold that school
board to Its contract Reed'a opportunity
would have been lost and his propects In
jured. Governor Morrill believed that
Reed's turning point In young manhood
hinged on hla success In handling the
Westbrook school and that hla stanch
friendship and loyalty to the young teacher
In a critical hour was the Inspiration which
shaped his useful life.
After Major Morrill was elected governor
of Kansas in 1X?4 a great ratification wad
held In his home ton. Hiawatha. Cyrus
Iceland, who had settled In a neighboring
county In lfc-IS and who for twelve years
was national republican committeeman, was
that year chairman of the Republican Btatt
committee. Joseph U Rristow, now I'nited
States senator, was secretary of the com
mittee. Only Two Jobs Pledged.
They both went to Hiawatha for the
Jollification and the twp with Morrill

around town. That night Ir.and and
ttrUtow were guests at Morrill's home.
After dinner they talked orer the matters
that would come before the new governor.
"How many do I have to fulfil In the
way of pledges to give people Jobs?" asked
"Only two." answered teland.
"Tea," said Fiistow, "and they were In
return for" good service."
"That's nice," said Morrill. "That's very
easy, and It's very good of you."
And he fulfilled the pledgee.
Iceland has another slcry about Morrill
and hla campaign fir governor In 1KH.
Everybody knew of Morrill's friendship for
Tom Reed. McKlnley was then governor
of Ohio, and McKlnley and Reed were the
two most prominent candidates for the
republican presidential nomination In 1S96.
Morrill was having a stiff campaign, and
Governor McKlnley was brought to Kan
sas to make some speeches In his behalf.
At Newton, where one of the speeches
was made, Morrill introduced McKlnley aa
"the next president of the United Btates."
Reed heard about It and did not come
to Kansaa, aa he had been expected to do.
"Why. Morrill." said some of his friends,
"did you Introduce McKlnley as the next
president? Tou and Reed are very good
friends and everybody knowa you are for
Reed for president. Why did you do that?"'
"Oh," Morrill responded, "1 would have
introduced Tom the i,im way if he had
come to Kansas."
THRILLING QUAKE INCIDENTS
A Battle with I.ootlna? Convicts, the
Conraae of Woman and Some
The following Incident waa recounted In
a secret report sent by Captain Cagnl, of
the Italian navy, now In command of the
battleship Napoll, the first war vessel to
reach Regglo after the earthquake, to the
minister of marine.
Aa soon as Captain Cagnl reached Reggio
he landed in a boat, accompanied by a
party cf officers and men, a score In all,
in order to arrange for the organization of
relief parties. No sooner did they set foot
on shore than about 100 escaped convicts
armed with rlflea which they had stolen
from the barracks opened fire on the party.
Cagnl and hla men were unarmed, so they
returned to their boat and signaled to the
battleship to dispatch at once 200 sailors
armed with rifles and two quick-firing
guns. Within ten minutes the sailors were
landed. Cagnl assumed command, lined
them on the beach and gave the order to
The convicts opened fire on them from
behind the ruined houses. The sailors fired
a volley In the air, and then, as the con
victs continued to fire, Cagnl ordered his
men to fire on the convicts, which they
did. The firing continued for five minutes
until most of the convicts were killed and
the remainder surrendered.
Captain Cagnl In his report does not
state how many were killed, but he says
that his first step was to secure all the
scaped convicts he could find, convey
them on board In Irons and sail to a port
In Sicily, where he handed them to the po
lice, and he did thla before rendering arty
help to the victims, as he considered It of
the utmost Importance to free the city from
this band -of looters.
A reference to the incident sent by wire
was stopped by the press censor, as loot
ing was officially denied.
Many of the earthquake survivors owe
their lives to strange circumstances. 8ome
fell, bed and all, from top stories to cel
lars and were not hurt. A sacred picture
served as a shield from the crumbling
walls to others, while some were shot from
their beds In the street without sustain
ing any Injury.
One family owe their lives to a dog, a
mastiff, who, scenting the approach of the
earthquake ahead of them, barked and
bayed for twelve hours before the catas
trophe, alarming, hla master so much that
neither he nor his family could sleep all
night. The dog's barking grew fiercer and
louder as morning came until at the first
shock he leaped toward tie door, begging
with his eyes for his master and the fam
ily to follow him. He guided them down
a street over a mass of ruins to the cathe
dral, barking all the time and looking back
to see If they were still following him.
The master and his family sought shel
ter under a flight of steps, but the dog
refused to stop, and no sooner had th!y
followed him than the stairs collapsed,
owing to a fresh shock. The dog was only
satisfied when they reached the Marina,
where they found a boat which conveyed
them to a man-o'-war.
There are many caaes of wives saving
their husbands, which shows that Italian
women under stress of circumstances
play a belter part than the men. One
courageous woman dug out herself, her
husband and five children.
Another young girl, with two small
brothers, was taken out after eight days,
living In a corner of a cellar upon which
nearly all the rest of the house had
fallen. She dug for three days with her
hands until she had opened a small hole
for air and by reaching out her hand and
signaling she caught the attention of a
passing squad of soldiers, who rescued
the trio Just aa the two children were
about to die.
A party of soldiers removed a portion
of a crumbling wall at Messina which
blocked a room In which a husband and
wife were discovered In bed. Their heads
appeared first side by side on the sanio
pillow. The husband was dead, while the
woman was alive. A soldier seeing this
took off his coat and covered the rutin's
face to hide it from the wife.
"Never mind," she said, "I know lie Is
dead and his arms are around me."
When the bodies were removed it was
found that the poor man had embraced
his wife when he died, and the doctors
had to amputate the arms to detach the
dead from the living body. The wife did
not cry. New York Sun.
