When the war be tween the states opened and the south ern ports were blockaded this was a favorite point for running the blockade with cargoes o f this valuable cotton. Where It was grown It was worthless; beyond the Yankee blockading squad ron It was often worth more than a dollar a pound. The United States government sent a naval and military force to Tort Roy al to occupy the harbor, and adjoining the Islands, some fifteen or twenty miles from the month o f the harbor.

I ’ve sold out my little plantation and put the money into cotton I got twenty bales.” “ Don’t you know that the Lincoln government won't let any cotton leave the Confederacy?" “ You don’t say so!" *Yes I’ ll take your cotton for yon. but there’s a big chance o f its being captured by a Yankee gunboat lying off the mouth o f the harbor I f so it will be confiscated.” “ Waal. now.

"T h at’s the color o f a fog. I shall not go to sea till I can git a misty night That gray paint Is exactly the shade o f a misty mo’nlng Just befo’ day.” A bargain was struck between the two, the captain agreeing to take the lean man and his cotton to England for 20 per cent o f Its value In Liver pool provided the blockade could he run sRfely. The twenty bales were taken to the whurf and rolled aboard. The owner remained ashore till a fo g gy night should enable the ship to get to sea. there being five chances o f success to one o f capture. Finally an east wind brought In murky weather, and the captain told his passenger that there was a pros peet o f her getting out early the next morning. The Intter went aboard with his baggage, a hair trunk, a bandbox and a leather case evidently contain ing a musical instrument But the captain, who was busy superintending getting the ship off. bad no time to Inspect the passenger’s baggage. Steaming down on to the broader waters the ship cast anchor between two Confederate forts on either shore to wait for an opportunity. There were considerable wind and rain during the nigh», hut nothing to conceal a ship About 7 o’clock tn the morning the wind lulled and a dense fog settled do wn. The captain concluded to try to slip out between the gunboats outside the harbor.

H alf nn hour passed, and he was congratu lating himself on having cleared the blockading ships, when from below there arose the resonant sound o f a bu gle. Dashing down the companion- way. he followed the sound, which led him to his passenger's stateroom. The man was practicing ou a cornet The captain with a blow sent it scurrying on the floor "You idiot!" he exclaimed. “ What do you mean?” “ W hat do yo’ mean yo’self? 1 al ways practice at this time o’ the morn- in’.” “ Fool! Do yon want to lose your cotton?” Through n porthole they heard "Ship ahoy!” then “ Heave to!” and the captain knew it was all over They were In possession o f a Yankee gun boat The lean man was a Connecticut Yankee, and his prize money for hls services amounted to 2100.000.
