W. C. Dodson Tells oJ
Editor Atlanta Journal :
In responding to your invitation to
write something more about Wheeler's
cavalry, I wish to say that the sub
ject is by no means exhausted, but I
had hoped that others of the old gang
would take up the task. Many there
are more competent and worthy, but it
is only just to myself to say that none
can love more the men, their cause
and its memories than I.
In reading of battles, sieges,
marches, hardships, etc., the averace
reader may be unduly impressed with
the horrors of war, and is apt to con- i
elude tbRt it is all tragedy, with no '
place for comedy, but comedy plays its
part, and the average soldier is much
more inclined to mirth than mourning.
Of course the hardships and sufferings
of our army wero great, but Johnny
lieb wasted but little time in ubcIcss
repining and was usually able to ex- 1
tract some diversion from nearly every
situation, and as a rule was equally
ready for a tight or a frolic.
Having in my previous communica
tious told about some of the fighting
we did, suppose I now vary the mono
tony and tell about some of the fun ;
we had. I would forget the darker
side of the picture if I could, but am j
fond of dwelling upon the lighter
Most of your readers have probably
heard of the great sham battle of
Johnstone's army on the retreat from
]> ilton, but an amusing incident con
Ucuted therewith I have never yet
seen published. There was present
tho wife of General ilardee, and a
number of handsomo and accomplished
ladies from Mobile. Among tho lat- j
tor was one having a decided partiaii
ty for a certain major, who was an ac- j
tive participant in the forefront of the
battle. She presently became uneasy '.
at the apparent dangerous position of j
her sweetheart, and in her excitement
exclaimed, "Oh, just look at the Ma
jor! Oh, the Major oug.it not to be
A ragged old cavalryman standing
near, and who was probably more fa
miliar with the major's fighting re
cord than his fair champion, felt call
ed on to reply: "Don't you bo uneasy,
Miss, if 'twas a sure enough fight the
Major wouldn't be nowhere near
The young lady's indignation and
disgust can better be imagined than
described, and if a look could have
killed, th'i.e would have been a dead
cavalryman then and there.
After the battle of Chickamauga
our division (Martin's) was sent wtyh
Longstreet on hisKnoxvillecampaign,
and remained with him until both men
and horses were worn to a frazzle.
Early in 1861 we were ordered to
Oxford, Ala., to recruit. This sec
tion had suffered comparatively little
from the ravages of war, forage and
food were plenty, and after our severe
wiuter campaign in East Tennessee
seemed verily a land of milk and hon
ey. Many ladies visited the camp
almost daily, and picnics and parties
were the order of the day.
The cavalryman's favorite ?port was
horse racing, but there the monotony
was varied. We were encamped in
Ghoooloco valley, in which lived
*'Unele" Taylor Do Arm an, the breed
er of a famou j strain of game chick
ens, and cock fighting soon beoame as
popular as horse raoing had been.
The contagion spread until the officers
became infeetcd, and then as usual.it
was the Alabama brigade on the one
aide and Georgia brigade on the other.
The Alabamians had decidedly the ad
vantage, in not only being able to get
the best of "Uncle" Taylor's cocks,
but also in having his friend, Bill:
Taylor, a uotei' heeler, to handle the j
birds in the pit. The result .vas that 1
Alabama soon had money to burn,]
while Georgia went dead broke. Col. I
Crews, commanding the Georgia bri- j
gadc, and his men were blue, while
General (uow Senator) Morgan and his !
Alabamians were exultant; and to
make it worse the Alabamians were
disposed to "rub it in" by tantalizing
the Georgians on every occasion.
At this stage of the game Crews
went to Columb *, and after consider
able delay and expense, secured a
coop of fighting chickens of a celebra
ted Georgia strain, and another big
main was arranged. The Georgians
who were able sent home for more
funds, others borrowed from friends,
and big money, such as it was, de
pended upon the issue of this final
Tho Alabamians had *n old gray

.ca"<*c he looked like a Shanghai. But
the.v?a a fighter from away back and
iiD'tiuj* battle he killed eight of his
opponi r.t* in succession. In the
ninth r > ind. he was pitted against the
best of the batch of Crew's Columbus
chickens, und broke the latter's leg
in/the lirai shuffle he made. The
' Georgians were now in despair, but as
? F\iii With Wheeler's
it is frequently the unexpected that
I happens, so it ?van in this case. As
I old Brahma leisurely reached over to
i give his fallen foe one more peck, the
I latter sprung at him and with one
I sound leg struck the steel gaff nearly
I through his enemy's head. Brahma
! fell back with a disgraceful squawk,
1 and the battle was ended.
The Georgians were almost wild,
: while the Alabaruians were corres
pondingly depressed, and to make the
tragedy complete, General Morgan
drew his knife and cut Brahma's head
off?remarking, with more human na
ture than justice : "I always thought
you were a dunghill and now I know
As previously stated, our usual
sport was horse riding, and many and
exciting were the races we had. In
the best of these Georgia and Alaba
ma were arrayed on opposite sides.
Toward the last the contest was nar
rowed down to two horses?"Crow
hop" and "Claybank." "Crowhop"
was a Yankee horse, captured by a
member of the Sixth Georgia regi
ment, and took his namo from being
"string-halted" which made him jerk
up one hind foot in rather a peculiar
fashion. "Claybank" belonged to a
man in my regiment?l'if*y-first Ali
bama, l'artisan Hangers, and obvious
ly took his name from his color.
"Crowhop" was fast: could in fact
outrun anything in cither the Georgia,
Alabama, Kentucky or Tennessee bri
gades, provided he could bo kept on
the course, hut he had a way of flying
the track, sometimes even after he
had the racu practically won. In the*
last race between these two consider
able money was up, but the Georgians
didn't back their representative with
their usual enthusiasm.
Just before the horses started,
Licutenaut Hodo, of the Sixth Geor
gia, after excitedly asking on which
side of the track Crowhop was to run,
made haste to the end of the course
and proceeded to climb a tree. This
was after we had crossed the Savan
nah river, following Sherman in his
in-famous march to the sea, and on
each side of the race course were a
number of South Carolina militia.
They were, of courso, amazed at Ho
do's action, and inquired its meaning.
"Boys, there's going to bo a cyclone
here pretty soon, and I am fixing to
stand from under."
The race course was a straight one,
and the judges stood on either sido, at
the end, each holding a fence rail, by
which to sight which horse passed out
Presently the horses came thunder
ing down the homo stretch, Crowhop
about a hurfdred yards ahead, his jock
ey leaning back and riding easy, while
Claybank trailed in the rear, his rider
applying whip and spur.
Just as he appeared an easy winner,
Crowhop flew the track, and the pre
dicted cyclone came to pass promptly
on time. Heran between one of the
judges and his fence rail, knocked
both down, jumped into the midst of
the militia, and those he didn't tram
ple he stampeded, ^Yhilc this was
goiug on of course Claybank was get
ting in his work, and went under the
string or rather inside of the rail,
away ahead, much to the joy of the
Alabamians and the discomfiture of
the Georgia contingent.
But the Alabamians' victory was
shortlived, for Claybauk was soon to
meet his Waterloo, and lose his race
and his life at thesamo time.
After Savannah was captured the
commaud had a few days' respite be
fore the beginning of the end. Of
course, we were never long in a place
until sport was inaugurated and Geor
gia, smarting under her defeat, ban
tered Alabama for another race. This
time Crowhop, being iu disgiace, was
relegated to the rear, and a big sorrel
horse trotted out iu his stead to con
test the honors with Claybank.
Xow, Claybank was a fast horse for
his day and time, and was fairly well
trained to run on a straight track.
But he, like Crowhop, was not with
out an infirmity, being blind in one
eye. This probably woulo have made
but little difference if his rider had
had two eyes, but he was ridden by a
one-eyed man, and both horse and
man were blind on the same side.
To make tho comedy of errors com
plete, there was a rather sharp curve
in the track, and it on the blind side.
So here came the one-eyed horso and
his one-eyed rider, lickety-split, and
when they camo to the curve in tho
track they, just kept straight on, till
Claybank brought up at>inst a pine
tree on the blind sido and broke his
neck, while the rider took a flying
leap, frog fashion, and landed 15 feet
This was about the last of the races
of which I have knowledge. It left
Georgia flushed with victory, and
Alabama with empty pockets and a

GENERAL JOE WHEELER.
San Francisco Post.
Strikingly interesting stories are
told about this small, grim, nervous,
soft-voiced, 'dashing soldier. Some
are matters of history. The "Bed
Book of Michigan" tells this story at
the general's expense. It in an inci
dent connected with the repulse of the
Confederates at Strawberry Plains,
August 24, 1864. Eight men of the
Tenth Michigan cavalry had been de
tailed to defend McMilligan's ford on
the Holsten. One of the men disap
peared, leaving seven, and among this
number was a great, husky, giant
named Griggs, the farrier of Company
These sevau men actually kept the
Confederate Brigade from crossing the
ford for three hours Jaud a half. The
fighting was severe. Finally the big
farrier "van wounded, and the Confed
erates, by swimming the river above
and below, succeeded in capturing the
General Wheeler was filled with ad
miration at their valor, and at once
paroled a man to stay and take care of
Griggs. Then he said to the wounded
"Well, my man, how many men
"Seven, sir," answered Griggs.
"My poor fellow, don't you know
you are badly wounded? You had
better tell the truth. You may not
"I'm telling the truth, sir," said
the indiguant soldier. ''We had only
"Well, what did you expect to do?"
ahked the general with a laugh.
"To keep you from crossing, sir."
The general was still more amused.
""Why didn't you do it?" he asked.
"Well, 6ir, you Bee, sir, we did un
til you hit me, and that weakened our
forces so much that you were too
many for us."
General Wheeler, more amused than
ever, inquired of another prisoner,
who happened to be a horse farrier,
"Are all the Tenth Miohigan like
"Oh, no," said the man; "we are
the poorest of the lot. We are mostly
horse farriers and blacksmiths, and
not mudh aoeustomed to fighting."
Gen. Wheeler has a largely develop
ed vein of poetry in his composition.
Some of his reports, when he was a
general of oavalry in the Confederate
army are unique in this reepect. In
line of communication he had captur
ed and burned the tin-clad gun boats
of the Sedelle. In his reportjWheeler
"Abngside the blazing and crack
ling transports she beoame a cinder
upon the waters which only an hour
before bad walked so proudly like a
thing of life."
His report of his raid on the Se
quatchio valley in September, 1863, is
one of the most remarkable war docu
ment! ever published. He wrote :
"As jocund day began to stand tip
toe on the mountain tops on either
side, and the sunbeams to oast their
golden radiance upon the fields of that
fertile valley, as if to oheer the weary
soldiers for the brilliant achievements
before them, a column of the enemy
was encountered, and no sooner seen
than the notes of the general's bugle
sounded the chargo, and each horse
man, instinct with new life, rushed
forward to the attack."
His escapes from death during the
civil war were almost miraculous.
From first to last he had sixteen hors
es killed under him in battle, "besides
a great number wounded," as he once
told General Mahone. Thirty-two of
his staff officers were either kill-d or
wounded while riding beside him at
the front. He was three times wound
ed himself. In an engagement near
Nashville, nfter Bragg'a defeat in
1862, his horse was torn to pieces by
a~ exploding shell, his aid was killed
aud himself paiufully wou led. He
climbed on another horse, i .ured an
other aid and continued at the head of

One of the stories told about him is
characteristic of the man :
Once during one of his Congression
al campaigns he was traveling through
a remote corner of Alabama, and over- |
took a mail carrier groaning under the
weight of an enormous sack of stuff.
He invited the man to ride besides
"Why don't you have a horse? '
asked the general.
"I have had three at different
times," replied the carrier, "but they
all died. The work was too heavy."
"You mean that the burdens of the
mails was too great?"
"Yes, that's just it. There's a
darned fool of a representative from
this district who sends out such a lot
of truck that the mails are loaded all
the time. This bag is full of such
stuff?seeds and such."
"How much money would buy you
a horse?" asked the general, feeling in
"I oouldc't get a good one for less
than $30," was the reply.
Fighting Joe counted out $30.
"That will buy you a horse," he
said. "But I'm not a darned fool, my
The man gazed at the money and
could not find a word to say before the
general drove off.
When the war with Spain was about
to be declared the question of appoint
ing Joe Wheeler to a reasonable com
mand was taken up by President Mc
Kinley and his friends. Among those
whose advice was asked was the late
Senator Cushman K. Davis, of Minne
"What is your judgment, Senator,
j on the appointment of Gen. Wheel
er?" asked the president- of Davis one
day, when a number of old soldiers,
j among them Hawley of Connecticut,
: Shoup of Idaho, Henderson of Idaho
and others were present.
"I think it would be one of the
best appointments you could make,
Mr. President," replied Davis, frank
ly, "I am a living witness of Wheel
I er's grit and persistence. During the
rebellion he chased me like the very
devil through about five States."

all the noxious weeds, bushes, briars
and such plants as are troublesome
and put the land in fine condition for

"That is the way some people have
of slandering the goat family. Some
body is always talking of 'noxious
weeds,' tin cans, dry leaves, or some
equally undesirable food, as being the
delight of goats. This editor onoe
had some experience with goats. He
had read some letters of Mr. J. W.
Watts, say twenty years ago, and
straightway bought an Angora billy,
and a whole gang of the ordinary
herd. We expected to see the noxious
weeds and other nuisancer. disappear
in a jiffy.
"Our testimony would be that a
goat is a sensible animal that loves to
eat nice things. That variety with
which we experimented put off pick

was anything half fit to eat in the

Fishing in the -Yellowstone.
People returning from the west fre
quently have some wonderful stories
to relate of how they caught trout in
the Yellowstone Park, and, without
ohanging their seat, lifted the
fish oat of the stream of
cold water over into a boiling spring,
and cooked it without removing it
from the hook. These stories are all
very well in their way, but when told
in the manner above outlined, one
can safely pat them down as yarns
without the slightest foundation in
fact. To catch a fish in a stream of
cold water, and lift it over into a
spring of boiling water is one of the
many curious things that ?re possible
only in the Yellowstone Park, but,
should the person so doing attempt to
draw the ?sh out of the boiling spring,
the head would pull off the thoroughly
boiled and perfectly soft body, and he
would thus lose the fish.
The most wonderful phenomena of
this sort in the Yellowstone Park is
one that thus far escaped those who
are fond of telling big fish yarns,
mainly for the reason that the locality
lies outside the beaten track of travel
and visitors, and can only be reached
after considerable difficulty. At the
point in question, a stream of clear,
cold water flows through tho park re
ceiving in its course the scalding hot
waters of one of the numerens boiling
springs of that region. This boiling
water, as it reaches the oold stream,
flows for a considerable distance,
along one bank before the waters final
ly mingle and become one in tempera
Into this spring of boiling water,
insects, bugs, toads, grasshoppers,
and the like are continually dropping,
and thus losing their lives, and all
such insects are, as a matter of course,
yrcpt into the cold water stream.
Now in the cold water of this stream
a number of hungry trout are continu
ally skirmishing along the edge of the
hot water, taking good care not to
venture too cIokc, for the purpose of
snappingpp and devouring the insects
brought down by the hot water, and
whioh happen to float over into the
cold water, or near enough the border
for the trout to pick them up, so that
it is possible 'for a fisherman sitting
on the bank, to catch a trout, with
hook and line, draw him two feet from
where he took the hook, and boil him
good and done, all in the same stream,
and without ever lifting the fish from
the water. The fisherman would, of
course, have to have a scoop net to re
move the boiled trout from the water,
for otherwise the head would pull off,
leaving the body in the tfnter. But,
barring this, it is within the bounds
of truth for one to say that the Yel
lowstone is the only place on earth
where it is possible to catch and cook
a fish in the same stream.?Washing
