A Thrilling War Sceae.
Out In a certain Western fort, com tine
ago, tbe major conceived tbe Idea that ar
tillery might be used effectively, In fighting
with ibe Indians, by dispensing Iwlth gun-
carriages, and fastening tbe cannon upon
backs of mules. So be explained bia view
to the commandant, and it waa determined
to try the experiment. A howitzer waa se
lected and strapped upon an ambulance
mule, with tbe muzzle pointing towards tbe
tall. When tbey bad seoured and loaded
tbe gun with a ball cartridge, tbey lead the
calm and steadfaat mule out on a bluff, and
set up a target in tbe middle ol tbe river to
praotice at. Tbe rear of Ibe mule was turn
ed towards tbe target, and he waa backed
gently up to tba edge of tbe bluff. Tbe
officers stood around In semicircle, wbile Ibe
major went p and inserted a timefuse la
Ibe touobbole of tbe bowitaer. When tbe
fuse waa ready, tbe major lighted it and re
tired. In a moment tbo hitherto unruffled
mule beard tbe fining upoo bia neck, and

were aeon dim log ever tbe bluff Into tbe
river, as if tbey didn't care at all about tba
price of uniforms; the adjutant made good
time towards tbe fort; Ihe sergeant began

and tbe major rolled over the 'ground and
groaned. In two or three minutes there
