'Yank's' Presence in Confeder
ate Lines Expjained

. iional "Uniform" He Could Hardly
Be Charged With Spying, as
Geh. Gordon Qulokly Saw.
In bi: "Ilemlhlsccnces of the Civil
War," General Gordon relates that
while the two hostile armies were con
fronting each other on the Unpldnii',
tin- i.Vmfe'derute-'nnd the1 Union pickets
DHv.iiiti so- very,,"ch"muniy" tlmt the
commanding generals were appre
hensive lest Important military Infor
mation might leak out. '
An almost ' continuous exchange of
toiiAoo for c'olTec was going on be
tween "Yanks nnd "Johnnies j" nlso
tmieh exchanging' of newspapers. When
tlit river was so deep that the soldiers
could not wndo across, they rigged
'aiinumire lioats and rafts loaded with
h:r.vpr they wished to trade and
m tht-m over fts the breeze favored.
The consignees on both sides scrupu
lously respected these snmll argosies,
and always .sent buck a fair equivalent.
Tii- u.t-n not only conversed across
h,rlver, but "Visited" pack and forth
for an hour or two at a time. The
office's began to fear tilnt they might
?CMi$e too friendly to fight with
pnlr energy; and at Inst General
ffjyt Instructed General Gordon to put
HJStap to It.
-A flaunting his horse, the general
tarUii to ride along the river front,
and almost immediately came' upon a.
Oon'-d. rate outpost, Where his sud
di appearance seenied'to create an
uiiiHtuil degree of excitement and stir.
'"Wliut's going ou here?" demanded
"Kott.mg at nil, sir!" cried one df
tlk sol'iiers eagerly; while another nt-
tempt ci to explain 'hat the confusion
was owing to their haste to "present
, nos" to him.
, , general Gordon was satisfied that
this was a subterfuge, but he could
gee notiilng amiss, and had turned to
ride away when he 'saw some tall
weed on the river bank begin to
. "What's In those weeds?" he asked,
wheeling his horse.
"Nothing ut all, sir I" cried a chorus
"Bre.sk down the weeds I" 1.
Vary reluctantly one of the mcn-dld
' ao and there lay a large, red-headed
Wrfnk" In purls nnturallbns, having
evidently but that minute swmu across
"Where flo you belong?" the general
tipked him severely.
-'.fOver yonder, general," replied the
-' Yankee, with a wave of his arm across
tfae river and uu inscrutable grimace. ,
"What are you doing here?"
"JttS! a little friendly visit to tho
"Don't you know that there's a war
raging in this country?"
"V, sir; but 'tain't ragln' today,"
waa the quaint reply ;' and the ring p?
Vstoning "Johnnies" grinned broadly.
Something had to be done to preserve
dignity and to enforce orders.
"Have you anything, to say why I
should not have you shot as u spy?"
demanded the general sternly. "la
titat your uniform?"
"Wal, general, it'a the uniform my
' mother gave me," came from the
Jweeds in a drawl so irresistible that
Xjfhe "Johnnies" shouted. t ,

Weeping stove pipes, from (lie Joints

of the pipes, and so cause the smoke
to pass out so quickly that It cannot

the membqrs of the division all wear
a big sunflower on an ni'in baud as a
distinguishing emblem of the division,
which received Its training here. The
division, tho first to bo trained nt
Camp Funston, was trained by MaJ
Gen. Leonard Wood.
