THE MARINE BAND
.History of Uncle Sam's Famous
STARTED BY A KIDNAPING.
Tradition Says That the Original Band
' Was Spirited Away From Sunny
, Sicily by Captain McNeil of the
: American Frigate Boston.
One of the best known and most
popular musical organizations in this
country Is the United States Marino
band. It is alway9 selected to furnish
the music at Important government
functions, such as Inaugural balls and
receptions at the White House, and is
always assigned the post of honor In
notable parades. Indeed, It is the
ablest and most famous military band
in the country.
There la an interesting tradition that
the original MariDe band was kidnap
ed from the snnny slopes of Sicily.
The story goes that one Captain Mc
Neil of the American frigate Boston
was crnising In the Mediterranean,
when his soul yearned for the sound
of real music, an art that had been
little developed in this young republic.
When ashore he heard a regimental
band play so tunefully that the bluff
old seadog became lnsprred. The in
spiration was promptly put Into execu
tion. In his suavest manner he In
rlted the Sicilians aboard his ship to
play for "a ball." The invitation was
Accepted with alacrity, induced no
doubt by the prospect of American
A few nights afterward the entire
organization was on board the frigate
with its instruments when the captain
suddenly found it expedient to return
to the United States. So it was up
anchor and away before the aston
ished Sicilians could protest. There is
no authentic record of what became
of this band of Italian musicians, as
many of the marine corps archives
were destroyed in 1814.
The official records lo show, how
ever, that shortly after the marine
corps was organized, probably in 1801.
Lieutenant Colonel Archibald Hender
son brought from Naples a group of
thirteen Italian musicians, which was
the Inception of the organization as
an instrumental band.
An act to establish a marine corps
was approved by President John
Adams on July 11. 17!)S. This
provided for a drum and fife corps
consistinp of sixteen drummers and
sixteen fifers. ow of whom should act
as fife major. This constituted the

Nasal catarrh is an inflammation of
