LORD BERESFORD AND THE MULE.
Had it not been, for a mule Lord Beresford would have lost his life at the battle of Abu Klea (stays a writer in the Penny Magazine). He was the only man left alive working the guns. Suddenly there came a maddened rush of Bagara horsemen, aii'd the square was broken. A wounded mule plunging in its death agonies, kicked Beresford down and fell on top of him. But for this he would have been massacred. When the square was reformed he got up coolly, and remarked, “dSTow, that is what I call a brotherly act.”
