Stealing and Forging Dispatches.
When setting out on his raiding trip
to the old Kentucky home of himself
and his troopers Morgan called to his
side an expert telegraph operator, who,
like his leader, was a joker and a dare
devil at the lame time. Oenrge A.
Ellsworth. Ellsworth proved an ally
equal to a battalion of soldiers. The
(Trass region, and orders between j
banks nnd commercial houses to send !
money and other valuables by rail

also sent Nashville the general news
of the day. and thus Federal war dis
patches from Washington nnd New
York were placed in the hands of John
II. Morgnn. the Confederate raider.

o,uenlly Ellsworth received dispatches
! by way of 7. nt the junction, showing
j that General Boyle did not know of
; Morgan's capture of Lebanon. They
showed also that Federal troops from
, Louisville were on the road south in
' anticipation of his coming, and so in- j

: ers moved northeast, striking the
Lfluisrille and Lexington n:Hro:id be- i

btation called Midway.
In the Heart of Kentucky.
The command reached Midway in
the forenoon of the l.".(h. Morgan was
in the heart of Kentucky. Ellsworth
entered the telegraph otlice ut Midway,
surprised the operator and made hiiu
prisoner and after a few words of
professional condolence carelessly ask-
ed hiiu to call the Ixington otiice and
, get the esact time of day. This was a j
ruse to get the operator's style, and
when he responded Ellsworth found
that he was a register operator, using
pajier to receive answers. A little
search brought to light a signal book
giving all of tbe calls on tbe line, and
it appeared from dispatches which'
oassed over the wires that the towns '
i all about were alert for Morgan. Ou j

It was now necessary to deceive the
Federals and give Morgan a chance to
be off in one direction while his
enemies were massing troops in an
other direction. Ellsworth then tele
graphed to Federal headquarters at
Lexiugton that the raiders had passed
by Midway toward Frankfort.
"To Cincinnati, Sixty Miles."
The command then moved on toward
Lexington, reaching f!eorgetown at

And so. while Morgan struck and
his scientific ally. Ellsworth, stole dis
patches and sent out Imus ones, the
alarm spread all over the country, and
even Washington awoke to the star

in Kentucky. On the I3th of July this
