ATTACHED TO HIS REGIMENT,
Etorle* of a RdfUltr Army Veteran Who
Wouldn't Quit th? Service.
The old soldier's attachment for regi
ment, company and officers ii not -with
out its compensation, or he presumes
upon it and ia indulged. A gray-haired
veteran, though something of an incor
rigible, would have his offending met
with a leniency at which the younger
soldier or war recruit would marvel.
Indeed, it ls the fact that not a few old
soldiers of the past owned their regi
ments, or believed they did, and acted
up to their belief. Jack Carpenter,
"H" Company, Third Infantry, had that
bolief as strong as any man who ever
wore the blue in the ranks for sixty-five
consecutive years Superannuated for
years, he would not take a discharge,
but at the end of each enlistment he
would get a dispensation from the war
department, and take on again "just to
stay with the old Third." A veteran
of the Mexican war, ne served faith
fully during the civil wai*, and in 1863,
with his regiment, was sent from the
Army ot the Potomac to help quell the
draft riots in New York.
The regiment, having sucessfuly ac
complished Its mission, gave a bail on
Governor's Island before departing for
the front. Jack Carpenter, as neat a
looking soldier aa ever pipe-clayed a
belt, along with a veteran comrade,
Mullaney, waa detailed to.look after the
gentlemen guests ia their retiring
room. Carpenter met every batch of
guests with elaborate courtesy
and, conducting each to a side
board, effusively protested that
each had better take a nip
before "jining" the ladies. Jack
the host, courteously drank with each
group or squad of visitors, and finally
he and Mullaney, who had been equally
hospitable, got into a dispute Forth
with Jack repaired to the ballroom to
find his captain and have the contro
versy settled. The ball was at its
height, with the band playing a langu
orous waltz, while the floor was filled
with dancers impatient for the go-note
of the music. Just at thia interesting
moment Private Carpenter, "H" com
pany, Third United States Infantry,
stalked ia, unsteadily, face flushed, but
determination stamped upon lt Cap
tain Andy Sheridan, his company com
mander, espied him, arid fearing some
outbreak, sought to hide him from the
crowd of gayly garbed ladies. Carpen
ter detected him and exclaimed:
"No you don't, sonny, you don't hide
from old Jack Carpenter. I am after
knowing who ranks in the cookhouse;
do I rank Mullaney or does Mullaney
After the war Carpenter accompanied
his regiment west and took station at
Fort Lyon, Colo. There, so well ad
vanced in years, he was practically ex
cused from all duty, only being re
quired to show up at Sunday morning
Inspection, so he might be kept on the
muster roll. This he always did, look
ing as soldierly and clean as if he Were
a toy soldier instead of a war worn
veteran of two wars and scores of in
dian expeditions and scouts. It so hap
pened that Second Lieutenant Louis
Hamilton, a grandson of Alexander
Hamilton, was assigned to duty at Fort
Lyon and to the command of Carpen
ter's company. A roayjaced, beardless
d imtareas'fh^'?ren with the
SmffiFne was an old hand at-the
business. In turn he took each gun
and inspected lt. He came to Carpen
ter, looked him over, took his gun, in
spected it, and, returning it to him, said
"What is your name, my man?"
"Jack Car-pen-ter," was the answer,
delivered with the faintest suspicion,
to those who knew him, that old Jack
had been early at the bar at the sutler'?
"Well," continued Hamilton, all inno
cent ot offense, ycu are the cleanest
man in the company."
"Sonny," with a snort, ejaculated old
Jack, "I was In the army before you

A UNIQUE WILL .
Inscribed His Bequests on the Back of a
Photograph of His Heir,
An original and unique document, in
the form of a will executed by James
P. Pettegrew, was admitted to probate
in Judge Clark's department of tho Su
perior Court here this afternoon. The
author of the strange instiument died
in this city a few weeks ago at the age
of seventy-one. He possessed an utter
disregard for the ordinary forms of
legal procedure, but had such shrewd
ness that the instrument by which he
devised his estate met all require
ments, in the opinion of Judge Chirk.
The testator had an excellent photo
graph of his son, George W. Pette
grew, a young man, who resides in
Randsbnrg, the new mining camp. He
took a sheet of note paper just the size
of the photograph and very carefully
pasted it on the back of the pioture.
Then he wrote his will on the back of
the photograph. It was a short docu
ment, and the phraseology is suffi
ciently out of the ordinary to make it
of unusual interest. It was as follows:
"Los Angeles, Cal., January 21, 1897.
"This ls a photo of George W. Pettegrew,
who, la case of my death, ia the owner of
all my property of any klcd whatsoever.
George W. Pettegrew was born December,
1860. His address ls Ranisburg, Keru
County, Cal. Telegraph him. He wUl como
and pay all honest debts.
"J. W. PETTEGREW,
"Father of George W. Pettegrew.
"Witness: Andrew J. Rideout."
It was in the handwriting of tho old
man,, except for the signature of Mr.
Rideout, in whose hands Pettegrew
placed the will and who kept it until
the death of the testator. There are
other children of the deceased, but he
left his estate to his son George. The
estate is worth about $4000. It con
sists of $1000 in money in a safety de
posit box at the Farmers' and Mer
chants' Bank in this city and real and
-personal property in the Slate of Wash
ington.-Los Angeles Correspondence

; Indian Lore About Cyclones.
"People out West," observed a Kan
sas Congressman, "have learned a
number of things from the Indiaus,and
many of them are of value. Probably
the most valuable has been in the mat
ter of cyclones. We have learned that
whenever a city or town was built on
the site of an old Indian settlement, it
has been free from any of the cyclones
which have now and them come along
in the Western country. How the In
dians were observant and smart enough
to select sites for settlement which
have always escaped cyclones ia more
than we have been able to learn to
study or investigation, but the fact re
mains that towns or cities on original
Jjidian settlements are cyclone-prooi.
These -towns which aie located thus
fortunately use their Iudian origin as
an advertisement and as a guarantee
for settlement. Thus lots in an origi
na! Indian settlement town are sold for
a higher price and are in greater de
mand than in towns laid out by white
men. It is rather rough on our intell
igence, but it is dollurs to pennies that
it is right. The cyclone insurance com
panies will insure a policy on houses in
an Indian settlement town for one
third the prices they charge for similar
policies in other sections. They have
found that it pays them better to issue
the low-rate policies than other poli
cies at the higher rate."-Washington

There is a business m&n in this tows
who is a terror to stenographers. His
amanuensis, who bas been with him
for a long time was recently taken sick.
The employer mailed a letter to a local
business college to send him a stenog
rapher and typewriter. The business
man is very particular about his
vocabulary, and wants everything
written just as he dictates it. Thara
fore, in order to test tho newcomer's
accuracy he, instead of dictating in
ordinary business letter, gave forth
the following at a rate of speed that
would do justice to a stump speaker:
"In promulgating your esoterie cogi
tation or articulating your superficial
sentimentalities and amicable philoso
phical or psychological" observations
beware of platitudinous ponderosity.
But he got no further, for the poor
amanuensis broke his pencil in the
effort, after which he got up, wiped
the perspiration from his forehead,
and quickly left the office.'-Phila
