Their flapping sounded above the scream of rifle and the boom of cannon. A platoon of Confederate soldiers had charged their guns with powder and ball that was to destroy our tower of defense. Our grasp upon victory was all relaxed. The dim gigantic half ghastly spectres almost recalled the vis ion of the Apocalypse. He was carried from the field, all mangled, torn and bleeding, to die before the final victory was inscribed upon his tattered flag, and the Anaconda again turned its many scale to the sun.

"Bill Arp, you have read after him, I reckon." "Yes," said he. "I have, and he don't cut no figure with me." Of course I was mortified. He passed on. but came back in a min ute and said to my friend. "I don't take any stock in these infidels. I wasn't raised that way. I believe there is a heaven and a hell and Bob Ingersoll nor Li1! Arp can't fool me a!out it." My friend was mortified a-ud said: "What has Bill Arp got to do with Bob Inger sojl?" "Well." said the conductor, "I've been told that they are the same man and they don't cut and figure with me."
