JOHN BURNS, OF GETTY'SBURG.
The Old Hero Who Wanted to Fight for
His Country.
One of the quaint heroes of the civil war
was John Burns, of Gettysburg. Burns
wanted to enlist in '61, but he was rejected
for old age; then he became a wagoner in
the Army of the Potomac. On the morn
ing of July 1, 1863, he took up his gun and
tramped across the meadows to meet the
troops, bound to fight whether or not. The
members of the One Hundred and Fiftieth
Pennsylvania regiment were the first sol
diers to see the'venerable figure com' upon
the field of battle.
With his lone brown rifle and bell-crown hat
And the swallow tuils they were laughing at.
'1 hey looked the oddly dressed civilian
ov r curiously, but their ranks were full,
they said, and when he iterated his desire
to fight they pointed to the left where the
Seventh Wisconsin. a portion of the fa
mous "lron Brigade." was preparing for
warm work. "Over there," they said to
him, "you can get all the fighting you
want."
Realizing after some delay that he had
better go further. the white-haired fighter
hurried across the intervening space and
accosted Col. John B. Callis. Col. Callis
relates that while viewing the operations of
the skirmish lines he heard some one ask
for permission to fight. Upon looking
around he beheld as grotesque an object
as ever walked a field of blood and carnage.
Gray hairs and wrinkled face were capped
with a bell-crowned hat of antique design;
and a blue swallow-tailed coat was worn as
shire as the big brass buttons that held it
tightly about the person of John Burns.
Grasping firmly his rusty rifle, the old man
presented arms to the officer. "Colonel,"
said he. "can 1 fight in your regiment?"
"Old man, you had better go to the rear.
People are liable to get hurt around here."
'1 he roar of cannonading and the scream
ing of shot and shell gave emphasis to the
words of Col. Callis.
"That's no difference," unflinchingly
replied old swallow-tails. "I've heard the
whistle of bullets before and if you won't
allow me to fight in your regiment I'll fight
by myself."
"How can you fight, old man? Where is
your cartridge box?"
"Oh, I've got the bullets." said he, draw
ing a handful of them from his trouser
pocket. "And Ive got the powder, too," he
added, bringing forth from his swallow
tails a powder horn, the venerable appear
ance of which indicated that it may have
been the veritable one that the veteran
carried when only 18 years old while march
ing to Baltimore in the war of 1812, more
than half a century before.
The soldier from the Badger state could
not resist an appeal like this. A silver
mounted rifle, just captured from Archer's
rebel sharpshooters, was given the new vol
unteer, and his old-time shooting iron was
laid aside. It was not lost, however, and
is to this day preserved in the flag room of
the Commonwealth at Harrisburg.
Burns showed some uneasiness for action
to begin. The old man scented the battle
from afar, and was impatient to be in its
midst. Finally he shouldered his gun and
walked from the ranks, going in the diree
tion of the Union skirmish line.
A few minutes later Colonel Callis saw a
Confederate officer mounted on a gray horse
riding in the distance. He also saw his
aged reoruit take aim at the adventurous
oficer. In a few moments the horse gal
loped riderless across the open space into
the Union lines. Thus one of the very first
officers whose blood reddened the now his
torio soil fell a victim to old John Burns'
unerring aim.
Throughout that hot Jul dy he engaged
ernestly in the confliot. Little is known
of the partiular things he did after the
oafliet became general, but that he fought
like a brave man, long and well, his wounds
Closer at hb elbow allthat d
senburnsd end beard crged away.
While Burns unmindful ofjer and scoff,
Stood there picking the s of

their marks upon his person and clothing.
Only three of the balls injured him. One
passed through his ankle; another pene
traited his arm; the third inflicted a flesh
wound on his breast. Considering his age,
these wounds were of a serious character,
and confined him to his room for several
weeks.
In after years Philadelphia people gave
John Burns a fine aun, and Pittsburg people
gave him a cane. He was uncouth and
eccentric, but a good and honest citizen.
He was an 1812 pensioner, but not of the
civil war.
Barns died February 4, 1872, 78 years old.
Bret Harte has sung about him:
The fellow who won renown
The onty man who didn't back down
When the rebels rtde through his native town.
The World Enriched.
The facilities of the present day for the
production of everything that will conduce
to the material welfare and comfort of
mankind are almost unlimited and when
Syrup of Figs was first produced the world
was enriched with the only perfect laxative
known, as it is the only remedy which is
truly pleasing and refreshing to the taste
and prompt and effectual to cleanse the
system gently in the springtime, or, in fact,
at any time, and the better it is known the
more popular it becomes.
