America sells 678,443 horses to Europe

 America sells 678,443 horses to Europe

The United States shipped 678,443 horses and mules, valued at $131,914,000 to Europe for the allied armies in the last year and a half, according to export figures assembled today in the bureau of foreign and domestic commerce. During the whole of 1913, only a few more than 30,000 horses and mules went to Europe from the United States, but three months after hostilities began they were going at the rate of 30,000 a month. The steady flow reached its height last October, when 60,000 were shipped.
