This "Enay veteran" -was- a horse. The story of a good horse :is always interesting. This one is as told in that paper. ;Here it is: "It is not often that our four-footed soldiers break into the pages of his- tory. The best of them'like Traveler and" Bucephalus, are hardly more da-. serving than Foxhail, who gave many years of valuable service' in the Unr-' ted States army. Much of the time he served in humble positions, but his record is all his own. He had no Caesar, Grant or Lee, not even a Don Quixote, to mate him. But, in ciation of his humble service, which terminated last December, we are pub- lishing this little account of his life, which was supplied by Sergeant-Majer William D. Mtisselmaa, Third Field Artillery, Fort San Texas. "Foxhail was purchased at Santa California, September 11, 1SS6 and assigned to Light Battery K. First Artillery. He was transferred to' Light Battery F, Fifth Artillery, now C. Third 'Field November 26, 3S9S. The same month he was sent to the chief quartermaster at Ponce, Porto Rico. .The next year he waa sent from Porto Rico to Fort Myer, Virginia. The same year he was ship- ped to Fort where he served from May 1900 to November 1905, when he marched with the Sixth Battery, Field Artillery, to Fort San Houston, Texas, where he remained until he was shot December 19, 1915. "While unloading the horses at Bar- quiri, Cuba, during the Spanish-Am erican war, on- July S, 139S, Foxhail was dumped into the bay to swim ashore with the other horses, but lost his bearings and started for sea. A boat w'as lowered and aoaie soldiers unskilled in rowing itartwl after him, but could not flfttch Him. Tne cap- tain of the gunboat. Manning, seainc the predicament, ordered to lower a boat and finally landed Fox- finally f0und his way back to his eld hall safely on shore. It is estimated that he swam about five miles. "Foshall went through the cam- paign until we reached Ponce, Porto when, owing to his heavy condi- tion, he wag exchanged fpr a more suitable horse. It Is strange that after this horse, had turned loose in a paddocfe among 1800 horses he Portion of Chateau, Lake Louise. (2) Seracs UlecUlswaet Glacier. (3y Climbing Mount .Resplendent.
