Deppw's Hero of the War.
Among Senator Dejiew’s stories there
is one about a veteran on a street car.
This veteran, all in the monoixdy of his
blue unifirm, brass buttons and white
cotton gloves, was on his way to a p'oiirth-
of-.lilly picnic on the outskii'ts of the
village. A stranger board-d the car, and
the veteran, leaning across his wife, en
gaged the man in ccmversation.
The talk soon turned to warfare, and
the veteran said:
“Yes, sir; I’ve seen fightin’. I got this
gash acrost the cheek at Cbicamauga. My
stiff leg, by gosh, comes from a ball in
the kn e—(^hancellorsville. This thumb
nail here was shot off at Gettysburg. I
lost the tip of my ear at S)>otsylvania. ”
“Dear me,” said the stram.ier, “how
interesting! You have, indeed se?n hot
fightiiM'. But tell me, how did you get
that long, deej), murderous dent down
the side of your nosel A cavalry charge
hand-to-hand engagement, eh?”
Th“ veteran frowned and if>nored the
question. He began to talk about the
heat. But his wife interru]>ted.
“Go on. Bill,” she said impatiently.
“Tell the gentelman how you got that
dent in your nose.’’
“You shut up, Hannah,” said the vet
“I won’t, nuther,” said the idd W'oman.
“For if just about riles the skin off me
to hear you braggin’ and braagin’ about
the marks you got in the war, whilst you
won’t never open your head about the
Hu' st and most noticeable mark of all—
the one T giv you with the fire shovel.”
