The old woman's words had kind of

THE CADETS HAD A L;,UGH AT THE
How a Billiard Table Was Smuggled
Into the Barraeks at West Point
and the Story cf Its Ace-idental
T:ere are many t:aditions and sto
ries of escapaies at the Military acade
my at West Point that are handed
down from :lass to class. and one of
the most iutecrsting of these is that re
lating to the billiard table. Shortly
after the civil war the cadets, always
on the alert for some new scheme for
amusement, decided that they would
like to have a billiard table and ac
cordingly organized a billiard club. A
collection was taken up with which to
purchase a table, and a suitable place
was sought in which to set it up. Until
the present steam heating apparatus
was installed in the cadet barracks.
about 30 years or more ago. the heat
ing was by means of furnaces. The
basement of the sixth division of the
barracks was used for coal bins, the
bins being so arranged that there was
a large one near the center of the
building, which could only be reached
by passing through one of the others.
After considering all available places
this coal bin was finally selected as be
ing the place least liable to detection,
for it must be remembered the table
The table was bought in New York
and sent to Garrisons, across the river,
for there was no West Shore railroad
In those days. One cold winter night
it was hauled by a team of oxen across
the river on the ice and up the bill and
was safely stowed away in the coal bin
before morning. The table was soon
set up and became a source of great
enjoyment to the cadets. A keg of I
beer was always kept on tap. and.
lamps were hung from the ceiling. giv
Ing the room a cheery appearance
The members of the club used to gath
er there at all hours of the day and
night. when their presence was not re
quired elsewhere by their duties, and
sit around smoking. drinking and tell
ing stories while two of them played
The authorities soon became aware
that there was a billiard table some
where in the barracks, for they could
hear the balls clicking together. but
they could not find it. The cadets con
tinued to enjoy the privileges of the
billiard club for more than a year.
Finally one night soon after mid
night, as do officers were returning
from a convivial evenigg at the mess.
they saw two cadets, clad in their un
derclothing and dressing gowns,
emerge from the north sallyport and
disappear down the steps to the area
way in front of the barracks. Instant
ly the thought of the billiard table
flashed through the minds of the two
officers, and they started quietly after
the cadets. On reaching the basement
doorway of the sixth division the two
cadets entered, and the officers, arriv
ing a moment later, saw them climb
over a pile of coal and enter an open
door, through which came sounds of
laughter and conversation and the
clicking of halls, while the air was la
den with fragrant tobacco smoke.
The officers paused for a moment
and held a whispered consultation.
Finally deciding that they would tell
the other orheers of their discovery and
have all of them come down the fol
lowing night and enjoy the fun of a.
raid on the club, they withdrew and
went home. Next day all the officers
at the post were informed of the dis
covery, and it was arranged that the
raid should occur at midnight.
All might hatve ;;one well, and the
officers might have had their little fun,
had it not been that there were three
cadets the previous night instead of
two. The third had forgotten his pipe
and had gone back for it. while the
other two went on and were discover
ed by the officers. The thIrd, coming
along a moment later, saw the officers
and quietly followed them, observing
all their movements and listening to
their whispered 'con versation.
When they withdrew, he went in and
told the members of the club all he had
heard and seen. The cadets at once
realized that It was all up with the
club, but they determined to have a
laugh at the expense of the officers.
Accordingly all arrangements were
made before the club adjourned that
The next night the officers met as ar
ranged and crept stealthily down the
areaway and into the sixth division.
Hearing no sound of clicking balls.
some became skeptical and concluded
the whole thing was a hoax, but never
theless they pushed on and climbed
over the pnie of coal. Opening the
door, they were greeted with a glow of
light, but still no sound. On entering
they found the room deserted, but
there were the billiard table, an almost
untouched keg of beer, several pounds1
of tobacco, some chairs and lastly a
note on the table, addressed to the offi
cers on duty at West PoInt. The note
was to the eff'ect that as the officers of
the post had been so kind as to permit
the club to continue its existence for
more than a year it desired to present
to them (the officers) the table and all]
its appurtenances, as it was deerped
expedient to wind up the club's affairs.
The note was signed "The Executive
The officers, of course, were much
chagrined at being thus outwitted by
the cadets. Nevertheless the table was
removed to the otficers' mess and, ac
cording to tradition, is the one still in
use there.-New York Tribune.

WASPS ACT IN A TRAGEDY.
But They Come Very Near Turning
It Into a Comedy.
"One of the most laughable scenes I
ever witnessed during the representa
tion of one of Shakespear s trage
dies." shid a vwell known theatrical
laager to the writer the other day,
"hiappeuel to the late Tom Keene
when lie was performiiing in a northern
Ne' York to\wn. The company was
playing '.ilius Cw.:ir.' and at the
last ltonitIt it was found that the
property imian hal 1I'iled to send up the
regular tir::t ebuir used in the sen
ate st-ene. ::il anM oh! r1:s:ie chair was
hastily procured from t ie lft of the
theater and, after being covered with
drapin;:. was pressed into service. In
the uhist of the scene a largi' wasp'
nest ias discovered attached to ti
chair, nl its inhabit::nts. becoming
indignalit at the disturbance they had
suffered. began to swarm about the
stage. seeking revenge upon the Ro
mans in their low necked and short
sleeved dresses. The wasps seemed to
be particularly offended with Cesar,
and it is doubtful if Cosar's death
scene was ever acted with more feel
ing, for at the moment he was being
pierced by the conspirators' daggers
the wasps were most industrious in
their work. \.
'"Iu the tent scene where Cesar ap
pears to Brutus one might almost have
doubted its being the real Ctvsar. It
was the same in form and dress, but
the face was no longer the same. In
the last act Brutus had one eye closed,
Antony a swollen lip. Cassius an en
lared chin. Lucins an inequality in
the size of his hands and Octavius
Casar a nose that would have done
service as the. famous nasal organ of
Bardolf In 'Henry IV.'
"The tragedy cane very near becom
ing a roaring comedy *hen Mr. Keene.
as Cassius. said. 'Antony. the posture
of your blows is yet unknown but for
your words; they rob the Hybla bees
and leave them honeyless.' and the
actor who was doing Antony replied.
'Not stingless too.' "-Washington Star.
How It Came to Be Tues'day After
First Monday In November.
The designation of the day for hold
ing the presidential election is left to
congress. The first act passed by it re
lating to that subject was in 1792. It
provided that presidential electors
should be appointed "within 34 days
before the first Wednesday in Decem
ber." This left each state free to select
a day to suit itself within those limits.
Pennsylvania chose electors on the last
Friday in October. Other states elect
ed theirs on different days between the
beginning and middle of November.
When Harrison was elected in 1840,
the Democrats asserted that his suc
cess was due partly to fraudulent vot
ig, which was made possible by the
lack of a definite election day. It' was
alleged that Kentucky and Ohio Whigs
had voted in both states, the election
being held on different days. So in
1S45 the Democrats passed the law
now on the statute books malking the
first Tuesday after the first Monday
At that tine but five of the 26 states
had their elections in November. In
Michigan and M1ississippi voting was
carried on through two days-the first
Monday and the following Tuesday.
New York had three election days-the
first Monday. Tuesday and WVednes
day-but had finally confined voting to
the middle day. or~ the first Tuesday
after the first 3Ionday. Manssachusettsf
chose state ofiicers on the second Mion
ay in Nov-ember and Delaware on the
econdl Tuesday. So congress selected
the first Tuesday after the first Mion
ay to consult the convenience of three
states out of five, one of the three be
ing the implortant state Of New York.
