Under a tree, upon a comfortable bed of dry sand, we wer obliged to lay her for several hours, until the paroxysm passed, and she could remount her dromedary. This she did with extreme difficulty, and we hurried toward Cassala, from which town we were only a few miles distant. For the last fifty or sixty miles we had seen the Cassala mountain at first a blue speck above the horizon.

When we came back from the Loire in September, after our temporary retreat, the British personnel at this place grew from 1,100 to 11,000 in a week. Now there are thousands of troops always passing through, thousands of men in hospital, thousands at work in the docks and storehouses. And let any one who cares for horses go and look at the Remount Depot and the Veterinary Hospitals.

"Sometimes," she said, "young men say ’très chic.’ It depend on when and how one says it." "Are there times when it is all right for me to say it?" he inquired. "Yes, I think so.... How are your mules today?" "The same," he said, " ready to bite or kick or eat their heads off. The Remount took two hundred this morning." "I saw them pass," said the girl.

Picrochole thus in despair fled towards the Bouchard Island, and in the way to Riviere his horse stumbled and fell down, whereat he on a sudden was so incensed, that he with his sword without more ado killed him in his choler; then, not finding any that would remount him, he was about to have taken an ass at the mill that was thereby; but the miller's men did so baste his bones and so soundly bethwack him that they made him both black and blue with strokes; then stripping him of all his clothes, gave him a scurvy old canvas jacket wherewith to cover his nakedness.

I want to show you one I bought from the Government almost for nothing. Remount man piped me off. Light in flesh, rather, but fast. Handy, light mouth all he needs is a bit of training."

Winkle got off his tall horse to pick it up, how he tried in vain to remount while his horse went round and round, how they were all spilt out upon the bridge and how finally they walked to Manor Farm these things are known to everybody with an inch of reading. "'How far is it to Dingley Dell? they asked. "'Better er seven mile. "'Is it a good road? "'No, t'ant....
