NAILS THAT WHISTLED. A JOKE THAT MADE 40,000 MEN THINK THE ENEMY WAS NEAR. It Sprang from the Agitation of Smoke less Powder, and Price's Men Imagined That the Ingenuity of the Yankees Had Evolved Something Terrible. "I see,"* said the veteran, as he twisted his feet up on the veranda railing and gazed lazily at the sunset, "that they are making whole lots of talking in the news papers nowadays about smokeless and noiseless powder. Why, we were talking about the same thing when I was in Price's army. "Yon know we were away down in the brush in southwest Missouri, where we were all cut off from the world and couldn't get any news from the outside. Well, the story got started somehow that the Yankees had invented a new powder —a kind that burned with no smoke, no flash and no noise. Pretty soon they were talking about it in every regiment, worrying over the thing, and reviving the devilish ingenuity of the Yankee. There was nothing to talk about, and you know how it is in a big body of idle men. "There waa one fellow that took great stock in the noiseless powder story. It bothered him all the time. This was Bill Oliver, of Colonel Winston's Second Missouri. Bill came from up here at Platte City. He was a blacksmith, a strapping great big fellow, strong as a horse. He weighed, I reckon, 200 pounds. "One black night Bill was put out in the brush on picket duty. Now, he was just as gritty a fighter as you ever saw in line with a man on either side of him, but I tell you, my boy, set a man out in a dark thicket all alone and the enemy known to be near and supposed to be everywhere, it takes all the starch out of the best of them. WHISTLING NAILS. "So Bill was trembly and shaky and saw Yankee sharpshooters everywhere. "Now, in the same regiment they had a daredevil, haruin scarum fool—Reub HilL This Reub Hill was the kind of a specimen every regiment has—a pestif erous practical joker—a nuisance that everybody liked. Here was a rich chance for one of Reuben's little jokes. Soon as Bill had got settled at his post Reuben loaded his pocket with a dozen or so big wrought iron nails, and out through the dark he circled to get in front of the pickets. He hid in a sassafras brush about a hundred feet from the big black smith and looked out. "There was Bill tiptoeing up and down his beat like an elephant on a rickety bridge, dodging and whirling every time" a grasshopper chirped or a horse back in the camp snorted. He was getting badly scared. Reuben picked up a right rag ged nail and flung it just as hard as he could jerk. "You know what a vicious screeching a nail makes when you throw it that way? No minie ball ever sounded wick eder. It goes: " 'Whi-u-u-u-u!' "Poor Bill's heart stopped with a big thump like a sledgehammer, and Reu ben, away off in the thicket, heard him catch his breath as if some one had dropped a bucket of ice water on him. His big bulk dropped in the weeds like a sack of sand, and for about a minute there was not the sound of a breath. Then the big picket muttered shakily: 'Sho, I'm gittin skeery as a woman with thinkin of them Yanks an their new fangled powder.' And he got up and began warily to walk his beat. "Reuben let go another of his nails, and a third just as quick as he could throw. They went whirring blood thirstily toward William, and one of them ripped through the leaves over his head, spattering twigs and bits of leaf all about. AN ARMY IN READINESS. "There was no doubt about it this time, and big Bill, as he let his musket off wildly in the air, charged for camp, sputtering, puffing, yelling, tearing up weeds and sod and bolting into trees. His trail looked like the track of a young cyclone. Into the camp he plunged, over men and tents, musket stacks and cook trenches. It is an actual fact that he ran over a little foraging pony that was tied to a tree and couldn't get out of the way, knocked the poor beast down and crippled it for a week. His head way was terrific. He finally brought np full tilt against a tough little hickory sapling, which he ran down like a moose, landing up in the leafy top with his hands clawing at the boughs. "He waked every man in the regi ment. Down the line went shouts and bugle calls. Within ten minutes every one of Price's 40,000 men was in line of battle, staring into the darkness for the enemy's advance guard, listening for the purr of their silently fired bullets. "Of course, the enemy did not come, but the men lay on their arms all night. "Reuben was too tickled over the way Bill tore through the brush to keep quiet. Next day every man in the army had the story. But it did not take well with the officers. A corporal's guard came after Reuben and put irons on him, and his little joke was ponderously consider ed by a court martial. That afternoon came news of the enemy in deadly ear nest, and Price set out on one of his long, forced marches. Reuben went along. He took with him by especial re quest of the court martial a full sized black oak fence rail, soggy with sap. He was charged carefully not to lose that rail for three days. " 'The first day,' said the disconsolate joker after it was all done, 'that rail felt pretty heavy, just like an ordinary rail. Next day it felt like a whole tree, but, my! on the last day I thought I was car rying all the woods.' "It is still an open question among the boy« of Winston's regiment whether the joke waa on William or Reuben." —Kan- sas City Timfts. Something New at the Circus. Jinks —Been to the circus, eh?

THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 22, 1891. —llouD.tza.Ue (Pa.) Observer. For s ale i by C. F. Heinzeman, 222 North Main, Druggist. A Desert Wonderland. The bed of the Colorado desert today may well afford a study to the seeker after marvels as well as to the geologist It is a desert wonderland. Imagine a plain of clay, monotonously level, re lieved here and there by hills of sand built in beautifully wavelike outlines. These hills lire not stationary; they trav el constantly, though slowly, journeying over tho plain as the winds direct. The sand of which they are composed is not like ordinary sand at all, but of a nature marvelous. Most of the grains are trans parent, others are translucent, while many are of rainbow hues, being in fact small gem 9of redcarnelian, green chrys olite and varicolored garnet. Looked upon beneath a microscope they aro most interesting. A majority of them are perfect spheres, rounded and polished by attrition with each other. When mixed with a familiar acid they effervesce like seidlitz powders. Com posed of these strangely wrought ma terials, the sandhills look like great snowdrifts, with hero and there a gleam of color. Continually they give forth a rustling sound as the tiny spheres are shifted by the winds, slowly rolling on ward.—Washington Star. How Some Insects Sing. The Greeks shut tho cicadas in cages so as to be sung to by them iv their sleep. The Greeks were at odds concerning the nature of the singing apparatus, and the controversy among naturalists on the subject lasted till very recently. The zoologist, H. Landois, who investigated the difficult subject of animal sounds with ceaseless industry aud great skill, was able to give a satisfactory solution to the question. According to his re search, the case la one in which the sound is really made by air circulating through passages in the interior of the body. Ever}' insect's body is penetrated by a system of breathing tubes or trachea? which open at places ou the surface. The openings are called stigmata. This sys tem of breathing tubes, through which the air is inspired and expired, takes the place of the lung of the higher animals. Landois discovered them in very obscure parts of the cicada, and found that they form a kind of windpipe representing the actual tone factory of the animals.— R. Franchcschini in Popular Science Monthly. Conscientious. Rose is an odd little girl, very con scientious, considering that she is only four years old. The other day she came to her mother with a half penitent, half triumphant look on her face. '•What is the matter, dear?" said her mother. "Well," she said, "I told you I would tell you in three days, and Tin going to tell you now." "Tell me what?" "Oh, that I ate the green apples. You see, it was this way: late three green apples last Tuesday! After I'd eaten them I begun to think that I'd be awful sick, but I didn't coiuo and tell you about it; I just went up to mv room and told God. 'Oh, God!' I said, ; If yon will keep me from being sick with these green apples, in three days I'll tell my mamma all about it!' So I didn't get sick at all, and now I've told you." This was certainly a remarkable case of faith cure—or else a very good infan tile digestion.—Boston Transcript. Snphlr's Wit. A very poor actor, having played the part of the ghost in "Hamlet" for many years, Saphir, the German wit, on seeing him, said: "It would be a good thing if this man gave up the ghost, so that some body else could take his part." A young poet once sent the humorist an "Ode to Immortality," requesting his opinion of it. Saphir returned the manuscript,with the message, "This package will never reach its address." "Three persons," remarked the wit, "sleep soundly—a child, a corpse and a night watchman." During his sojourn in Berlin, Saphir was frequently in the society of a well known theatrical manager, whose dullness was notorious. "How strange it is that my legs go to sleep every day!" he remarked upon one occasion. "How can you won der?" returned Saphir; "they are always in your company."—San Francisco Ar gonaut. A Scare in the Museum. For about ten minutes a ghost waa supposed to have taken charge of a Bos ton dime museum. The sweeper, pre paring to clean the main room, placed Mr. Bass, the ossified man, in a corner, arid that bony gentleman leaned lazily in the angle. The sweeper hurried with his work, and passed to the next room, leav ing nobody in sight but the mechanic, who was fixing the electric lights. The silence of the grave was broken by a sepulchral voice, which came from the ossified man, uttering these words, "I want my breakfast!" The mechanic fell from the ladder and crawled hastily out of sight. In the next room, with hair standing erect, he exclaimed: "Don't go in there! One of the wax figures is' talkin."—Yankee Blade. A New Fuel from Waste Paper. The waste of a paper and pulp mill, near West Troy, is being utilized as the basis of a new fuel, which is said to be of much value. The waste as it comes from the mills is nearly pure carbon, and by cleansing and chemical treatment it is converted into a form that permits of nearly perfect combustion. It is said to burn rapidly, with intense heat and with littlo of the unpleasant features attend ant upon the use of bituminous coal.— New York Telegram. Beady to Assist. The popular idea of the labor which goes to the making of books is often an amusing one. A literary woman who had urged as a reason for shortening her call on a dear old lady the fact that she had some work to do when she got home was confronted with the question: "Don't you want a sheet of paper and a pencil right now?" "What for?" was her astonished query. "Why, to write something!"— E xchange. We have a speedy and positive cure for catarrh, diphtheria, canker mouth and head ache in SHILOH'S CATARRH REMEDY.
