while four went aboard forced every
body on bonrd to the forecastle nnd
disarmed them It was then that iho
two caunoneers led the horses down
to tho boat and after they had got
ten the steeds nboard explained the
nature of the fort to their captives
who did somo talking which was far
more expressive than clegnut How
ever it wns of uo avail to them One
Confederate stood in the pilot house
another over the engineer oucon the
root with tho captain while the other
three kept guard over the soldiers
and the balance of the crew oil the
forecastle
The captain the pilot engineer
and tho balance of the crew were
forced to attend to their duties ami
given to understand if they made any
fulse plays their gooso was a goner
When all was ready the boat was
hacked out and started for Green
wood on tho Yazoo On her arrival
there Capt Goodwin who had once
been a clerk on the river was given
the command Gid Montjoy who
when he enlisted was a striker on the
Vicksburg nnd Tallahatchie river
packets was assigned to the engines
while the writer who was then purser
ami steersman on the J M Sharp
was transferred to tho house with the
glass windows on the Keolo Our
mate was a soldier nho had never be
fore trodden the decks of a steam
boat His deck crew were planta
tion coons fresh from their overflown
homes and on their first voyage We
were an inexperienced set for tho du
ties we had to perform but the best
available with which to man the little
captive
Tho captured crew wcro to be pas
sengers with us to Grenada where
most of them were paroled and sent
through the lines to Memphis The
pilot was a deserter from the Confed
erate navy nnd being nu old timer on
these turpid streams Jumped over
board when we laid up our
first night out and swam to
land making his escape rather
than run the risk of nn
arrest for desertion However wo
reached our destination alCright and
the writer steered that little doubled
nhccl single engine craft all over the
Yazoo Delta We were homeward
bound with n load of corn and bacon
for tho nrmywhicli hud been secured
iqi Cohl Water river aud Cassidy
Ilayou On reaching tho seventeen
milo ferry below Grenada by land
and about sixty five by water wo
were met by a courier with the news
that Geu Johnson had surrendered
tho department Our loatl was
transferred to tho Sharp and in
rounding out to go down stream the
engine caught on center We drifted
In against the bank and one of the
many old trees which Hue the banks
of these rivers pierced her sido with
a much more telling fatality than nny
ball horn the keg with which she wns
taken could have done c i
At the time of tho battle of Ft
Donelson the writers homo was in

large Confederate hospitals to which
the wouuded from tho battle were

next day the Mlunctonkn Cnpt

It was in tho spring cf 1805 nt tho but ho refused So they gnc htm n
time the cartel was In vogue by
which certain steamboat under ling
of trace could ascend tho Ynzoo nnd
n portion of tho Tallahatchie rivers
mid exchntiga their loads for cotton
Hint n small wct cudcr which sailed
under tho nmno of Keoto at
tempted to stcnl her wny in through
tho overflow nnd tho pnss nnd
trade for n enrgo of tho fiecoy staple
She succeeded in getting iuto tho
Sunflower river nnd wns doing n live
ly business with tho swamp angels of
Hint stream Sho had disused of
about half of tho lond she carried
when a sqiind of six Confederate
cavalry scouting In that section got
hid of her marauding expedition
made for tho river nnd laid n trnp
for her capture They secured two
or three old shovels spades nnd
hoes found nn empty nail keg
threw up nn embankment stuck tho
keg through n port hole in it nnd
awaited tho coming of the bont
When tho Keoto wns nearly
abreast of them two of the soldiers
stepped out emptied their carbines
across her bow and ordered the cap
tain to haul to or they would turn
the camion loose nnd send him and
all on board to Davy Jones locker
Notwithstanding they had nearly a
full crew nnd seventeen soldiers as a
guard they came to the bank Two
of the boys stojd by tho gun
glass of brandy sat lilin ilorrn In n
chair with tho wounded firm on tho
I
tnblo nnd soon had the torn and
bleeding part severed When the
nrlerics In tho stump had nil been
staunched nnd tho linp nicely turned
Dr Lylo said There uiy brnvo
nnd gallant boy 1 think your life Is
saved nnd hope you may soon be
well Tho young soldier who had
nut bathed nn cyo nor uttered n
groan during the terrible ordeal re
plied ul join you in your good
wishes nnd asked for n cigar
which when lighted ho arose picked
up the dismembered part of his anat
omy walked out of the cabin to the
guards gnvo It n twirl or two nnd
tiling it ns fnr out into tho stream ns
lie could coolly remarking nt the
same time There goes n bait for n
catfish Mnny such operations
were performed but no one
exhibited such an amount of
nerve ns the young soldier
mentioned Arriving nt Nnshvillo
ns tho writer stepped from the stngo
to tho wlinrf ho wns greeted by
Cnpt Jcsso Johnson who took him
to his ospitnblo homo on lirond
street where his wifo aud daughter
dressed his wound nnd extended
every kindness and nlteutiou heart
could wish That night n train of
sick nnd wounded left on the old N
1 railroad Cnpt Jcsso snw the
writer off nnd when ho snid Good
bye mny God watch over yuu
though this terrible struggle my
boy who blames him if n tear
coursed down his manly weather
beaten face or me that they ran out
of my eyes like rain We both re
cognized aud felt whit was to come
That wns the last time the writer ever
snw the big hearted gallant nnd able
old steamboat captain Jesse John
son C L
City Clerk Arthur Cole has had
many interesting experiences many
very remarkable experiences in fact
which when related to his friends of
ten evoke expressions of pardonablo
doubt Yesterday the subject of
dynamite was brought up and he
regaled n crowd nt the city hall with
some oi llio astonishingly large
blasts he had toQchcd off in bygone
years when compelled to use tho
powerful explosive
rhotographer P L roblc was
present and with a withering smile
replied to one of Clerk Colos sto
ries Pshaw I Ive touched off more
dynamito at one time thau you ever
saw in your whole life
1 11 bet you money jou haven t
said the official by way of argument
hats the largest charge you ever
fired
Well when 1 vn3 blasting out
in Colorndo several yenrs ngo 1 fired
one blast of 12 tons of dynamite at
one time
The clerk gave a contemptuous
glance nt the small audience tliat
was appalled into silence and with
out another word sought tho quie
tude of his otllcc on the second lloor
A man dont stand any show at
all with those evil fellows he after
wards said apologetically Why
twelve tons 2 1000 pounds of dy
namite would blow Kentucky iuto
Europe 1 cant tell my past expe
riences when those sort of fellows are
around
When tho uiob began to scatter
over town yesterday morning after
having its ardor dampened by disap
pointment most of the saloon-keepers
down town uol beiug by any
means reassured by the sight of so
many formidable looking wcapous of
every description closed up mid
went home
One well known bartender how
ever was not ono of the latter nnd
before dnjlight the men began to
straggle in with their axes guns
and pistols and some of the more
bibulous become free nnd easy llio
electric lights were in somo manner
affected and would go almost out oc
casionally and every time they went
out tho bartender would crawl down
under tho bar out ofruugo of what
ever camo nlong which was ns likely
to be n bullet ns anything else and
when the lights brightened up again
he would resume his standing posi
tion tho very picture of courage
One fellow became n littlo loqun
cious nnd laying ono pistol on the
bar ho hugged his Winchester and
leaniug over the counter confidently
declared You fellers didnt do us
Maylleld fellers right dye hear
Tho bartender certainly did hear

Tho gun awakened many n pa-
