"TAKE TO THE WOODS."
An Interesting Ynrn nronaht All tile
AVni lrom Hat aim.
"Did you ever seo the celebiated
'tako to tho woods' proclamation?"
asLcd a young man who bns lately ro
tuincd froui a prolonged sojourn In
lluuiun. "It was oio of llic most
amiishi); practical Jn!cs ever played.
For nearly a year, as you may know,
IInana lias been swarming with fnku
patilots. most of 'em colonels nnd ecu
eiaU, who aro dead sore because they
bnwn't received fat jobs In the civil
cervlce. Tliey sit around tho cafes at
nlKlit, rehearsing their wrongs, and
their f.iorlle threat U that they ate
going to 'tnkn to tho woods,' meaulng
that they will go out to one of the In
teilor piovluces and start a little war
of their own.
"Of course nobody regarded tho
thing sol lously, but some of us got
thed hearing it, and ono day wo dinft
ed a proclamation which purported to
cmnunto fiom the governor's palace.
After the usual preamble It went on to
say In substance that tho evpiesslon
'take lo the woods' wnjy hereby de
clined tiensonnlile. aud irny ouo malt
ing use of the same was liable lo a
penalty of fiom 5 to 20 yenis' Impris
onment nt hard labor.
"A Job printer we knew set the thing
up for iw In regular ofllelal style, one
side Spanish nnd one side English, and
we had about a hundred copies pri
vately struck off. They worn tho
source of endless fun. Wherever wo
heard a boodlo patriot holding forth
on the Ingratitude of nations we would
quietly slip him a copy of tho procla
mation and whisper that It was hclntr
ported all over Havana.
"The effect was magical. I remem
ber a certain general who was bellow
ing nt the top of Ids voleo and had Just
mnde the usual declaration In regard
to the woods, when a waiter banded
him one of the documents. He glanced
at It, turned pen green nnd vanished.
How be got awny I don't know. It
was IlLo a trick on the stage, and,
what Is more. I never laid eyes on him
again. I believe be really did take to
the woods. " '
"Wo worked the thing for nbout a
week before tho Joke leaked out, and '
we came near causing an exodus
among military gentlemen who wanted
Jobs or blood. Some of them received
such a nervous shock that tbey Have
been mild as lambs ever slnceV' New
