THE ARMY EMERGENCY RATION. The emergency ration established by G. O. 49, Hd. Qrs. of the Army, A. G.

Abstract

The emergency ration established by G. O. 49, Hd. Qrs. of the Army, A. G. O., Washington, D.C., Dec. 5, 1896, has recently been subjected to a practical test in the field, the results of which have been reported as entirely satisfactory. This is to be appreciated the more because we have in vivid remembrance the disastrous results of a test made in the Department of the Colorado of an emergency ration suggested by the officers of that department. The test of the War Department ration was made by troops from Fort Sill, Oklahoma Territory because on account of the absence of settlers, on the Indian reservation, a command could march for the required number of days without having to camp or to pass within twenty or more miles of any settlement where the troops might obtain any article of food unknown to their officers. Deputy Surgeon-General Smart was ordered
