"Still fifteen leagues to go..." reads the caption under the cartoon. A French soldier's horse has collapsed under him. An officer stops, as the rest of the regiment ride by. "Come on, brigadier," the officer says, " you'll have to follow on foot. You are responsible for your baggage; however, if you're too loaded down, leave your horse." (Virginia K. Anderson 04/17/95)
