THE MULE STABLES IN A COAL MINE
Often down a quarter of a mile in the earth are stables kept
as clean and as sanitary as a race-horse barn. The mule is brought
down the shaft in the cage, or elevator, blindfolded, and he stays
down below until he dies, or is rendered "hors de combat"
by accident. If he is sick there is a "barnyard" covered
with white sandthe only touch of white to be seenwhere
he can roll and rest to his heart's content.
