GOT SAOTA ANA'S LEG.
Mast Who Captured It in Mexican
War Tells How Be Did It.
Tha man who captured Oeneral
Banta Ana's cork leg. the moat Inter
esting rello of the Mexican. war. Is still
living. He is Edwin Elvln Elliot, now
living at San Rafael, California. From
Mr. Billot comee the firat authentic ac
count of tha capture, says the Mexican
In the course of his narrative M.
Elliot describe the scene when the
Mexican batteries were attacked by the
American troops charging across the
open plain. The Fourth Illinois ad
vanced rapidly to the Jalapa road. In
whloh stood the' luxurious and gaily
caparisoned coach of General Santa Ana
harneased and ready to leave. This
coach, however, had been rendered un
serviceable by the artillery fire, one of
the mulea having been killed. The sad
dle mule on which an outrider usually
rode was being cut out of tho harness
aa the American troops came up. The
latter noticed the Mexicans mounting an
officer upon this mule, but they did
not know until later that this officer
was no less a personage than Santa
Ana himself. '
Companlea B and II charred down
the hill, and Private Edwin Elliot waa
the first soldier to reach the carriage.
He Jumped inside and secured the cork
leg of the general and passed It out to
the soldiers who followed. . .
It waa sent to the rear as a prise of
war, and eventually waa placed In Me
morial hall. . at Springfield. Illinois,
where It is yet on exhibition.
Elliot also found a basket of lunch,
consisting mostly of chicken, which had
been put up for the general. The food
was ejulckly devoured by the hungry
soldiers.' Continuing his search, Elliot
found a bag of gold under the eeat.
The coin was kept under guard until
an aid of General Twiggs camp came
up, when It -waa turned over to the
commander-in-chief aa a prise of the
fovernment. The sack contained In all
10.000. - ' '
Mr. Elliot's regiment, the Fourth Illi
nois, saw much hard service In the en
sulng month, but the war ended in Sep
tember, 1147, and tha soldlera were
mustered out in the following year. The
capture of the leg waa productive of
much merriment at the time, and many
accounts of the Incident have been
published, but the story of the man
