CAVED BY HIS PIPE.
Cspt. Bcyla. Veteran of Civil War, Re
late Odd Story of Martial Day.
It Im n strati; story of a buttle In
the civil war, liow a lx thut a man
carried In Ms pocket saved his life,
tbe lop of the pipe and Us recovery
over two score years after It had
been loat. The story has come to
lipht, says the Indianapolis News, as
a result of the recent reunion of sol
diers of all wars at Frankfort.
The central figure In the story Is
rapt. J. H. Hoyle, 404 Lord street, In
dianapolis, who was In command of
compauy C, Tenth Indiana volunteer
Infantry, during the civil war. Capt.
Boyle owned the pipe and had It In
his pocket 43 years ago when a con
federate bullet struck It. Six months
later the pipe was stolen, but was re
covered by a friend. It was not
turned over to Capt, P.oyle, however,
until three days ago.
The pipe Is of meerschaum and wa
purchased In Chattanooga, Tenn., by
Capt. Poyle In 18C3 for the sum of
$25. The captain carried It with him
throughout his soldiering and on July
9. ixf.4. during the Atlanta campaign
when his company was In a heavy skir
mish at Vlnlng Station on the Chatta
hooche river the pipe occupied a place
In a pocket directly over his heart.
When the company was called Into
action Capt. Poyle laid the pipe down
on Lis bianket, but afterward decided
that it were best to take It with him,
fcr It might be stolen, or he c:!?ht be
prevented from returning to the spot
where he left It. He returned the
pipe to the left Inside po Wet of his
army bloiine, end went Into the
"The co!. fe.l-rates were driven off.
and the Cght was n.-ariy over." said
Capt. ISoyle, "a hen one Johnny Ueb,
who lingered a moment when the oth
ers were retreating, raised his musket
and fired a parting shot. 1 was en
ftK"d in straightening out my line of
men. I was a little higher up than
the others, and heard the bullet com
ing I Instinctively moved to the
right just es the bullet struck the
Ikw I of the pipe In my p,ocket. James
A. Trice was standing beside n:e at
the moment and heard the bullet
strike the pipe.
"The bullet knocked a big piece out
of the bowl, and later I sent the pipe
to New York, where I had a new bowl
"In ISGj I was attending a meeting
at Ctarks Hilt, Ind.. and while I, was
there the plie was taken friim my
pocket by unknown parties. I after
ward learned who had the pipe, and
William Pay, at one time a well known
citizen of Frankfort, volunteered to
recover It for me. He did so and re
turned It to me one dsy In 167.
"Later I was in Frankfort and was
smoking the pipe while walking about
the streets when Mr. l'ay came up to
Capt. J. H. Boyle and
rue and In a Jocular way took the i
pipe out of my hands. I ill t not think '
much about It at the time, ami 'U- ;

"My company," said Capt. lioyle,
"whs on the skirmish line on the
niornlng of September 19. 1SC3, Trh'.ch
was (he morning on which the big bat
tle opened. We had Just emerged
from a dense piece of woodland and
had route suddenly utn a bunch of
rebels behind a lot of underbrush not
more, than fiO yards away. Jeff Goar,
a member of my company, who was
marching a little In advance of me,
saw them first, and came running back
-'There they are, captain,' he shout
ed. " 'Well, why In the don't you
shoot?" I called.
"The words were hardly out of my
mouth when Goar fired Into tbe bunch
of rebels. It was like throwing a stick
Into a hornets' Bent. There was a yell,
and then the whole lice biased away.
The rebels that we had run on to were
what was known as the lilack Horse
cavalry. The fight raged fiercely for
a time and we were forced to retreat
to the main column. While the fight

Thompson and D. F. Allen, were
Our colonel was also killed that day.
When the column advanced on the
enemy the Fourteenth Ohio was Im
mediately on our right This regiment
had 20 men killed in an Instant. The
fire was terrific. After some very hard
fighting we forced the cavalry to re
treat to a line of infantry that was
coming up In the rear. Then the line
rallied and advanced. A rebel brigade
advanced upon us at an obtuse angle
to the battalion In which my company
belonged. Tbe firing became fast and
furious. In some way, I don't know
Just how I came to do it. 1 became sep
arated from my command and found
myself between both lines of fire. It
was a most daunerous position. I g"t

fired I Jumped to the side of the tree
next the rebels.
"When the rebel fired their volleys
I Jumped around to the side of the
tree next to my own company. I stoo l
this for some time, and finally got a
chance to get back to my eomiatny. A
j number of bullets struck the tree

"During the day we loet a battery

Thoruas came riding up and ord-red

i night there wasn't a man In my enm

Clark and myself. Out of the entire

"We maintained our organisation,
however, and finally I took what men
I had left and went with the rest of
the regiment to the joint where Gen
Thomas was fighting, three-quarters of
a mile to the southwest. While th-
leglment was going to his assistance
we came to an open field and met a
rebel brigade coming acrons It mas
marching In as fine order as 1 ever
saw. I ordered my men to fire They
did. and our entire line joined in The
rebels returned one volley and then

Most of the states of the union felt
the unusually severe winter of li067.
and the effect of the succeeding late
spring were everywhere apparent.
Corn was planted two and sometimes
three times, the winter wheat suffered
and generally there was a nervous
feeling as the retarded growth was In
evidence. From the Dakotas to Texas
the feeling of dread existed, and the
jears were entertained that the crop of
corn, wheat, oats and barley would
be a distinct failure. How far this was
the case is best left to those who
passed through the experience. Natur
