Blackfoot News (Newspaper) - March 7, 1896, Blackfoot, IdahoA War incident. How Jackson g Ilion came upon j the eleventh course we of Deven s division eleventh a corps had been idling away the whole Day at Chancellorsville. Gen hookers army had crossed the Tappahannock above Refie Rietburg to flank Lee out of his position on the Bills above the town. The general idea was that we were to move Down on his flank and rear and Why we should waste time in the Woods was a mystery to All. had come to us that there had been fighting with Stonewall Jackson s corps Over on the Furnace Road. We wondered Why we did t move opt across the line of Retreat but officers and privates alike were k i it i in ignorance of hookers intentions. Home said we were to move toward Fredericksburg that night others that we would follow after Lee others yet that Hooker was spreading his net to capture the whole Confederate army on the Morrow. We were on the extreme right of front. On the right flanks where the guns had been end bladed on the Plank Road the rail fences were torn to splinters the ground Cut As by a Hundred drags and scores of confederates lying in the Highway ditches were killed by stones splinters and fragments of rocks. After Nightfall while the confederates lying among their dead still held the Road and while the Federal guns were still in position to Check any attempted Advance Jackson and his Start Rode Forward Over a Blind Road in the Forest to see if these guns could not be flanked and a Volley of musketry from a picket of his own men Laid the great fighter . Quad in Detroit free press. May ease fatigue Long Unen of men rustling toward the gnus. The Fui on line and in front of us was a Light breastworks of rails and logs. From noon to 4 of clock we broke ranks stacked our guns and took easy. At 5 some of the men things began to Fry Bacon and boil Coffee. At 6 every Man of us was thus Bush so As to change the Angle at which the wrist is Bent. This As Well As As changing the grip will relieve pain on the outer Side of the Arm. Sometimes pain is Felt at the Elbow joint especially when the Arm is Bent at the joint and the Road is rough. This is relieved by sitting up straighter and thus straightening the Arm. Fatigue of the Pectoralis major Chest muscle is al most always due to bending the Backa j u a few get in Jie rear Over thus keeping the Pectoralis nit. I for the 3rd to g0 when t i m a 1 to a ail a i it in 4 a Lutle anatomical knowledge of interest to Blueye Llata Vith the Aid of a slight knowledge of Anatomy and a common sense application of it bicycle riders May avoid much of the fatigue that very often makes trips of greater than customary length anything but pleasurable. Fatigue is a necessary evil even on a perfectly adjusted wheel that moves like the wind at the touch of the foot and particularly is this True of Young and inexperienced riders. Complete Freedom from it is Only gained by keeping in constant physical training a condition which few persons in these Busy Days Are Able to fulfil. Rut much Relief May be gained by a study of ones Muscles and an adjustment of the position of the body and limbs so As to distribute the strains and change the form of action demanded of the Muscles. The cute Cago times Herald has been making a study of this matter for the Benefit of its cycling readers and the information is reproduced Here for the Benefit of bicyclists. In the illustration the places where and Felt certain of spending the night bicyclists feel fatigue air marked x. On the spot of a sudden two or three j fatigue at the wrists May be relieved rabbits came running out of the dense by changing the grip so As to catch Woods beyond us and scores of men the handles with the Palms up also jumped up to try and kill or capture by raising or to w Cong t lie shoulders them. Everybody round me was laughing and shouting when a shot was suddenly heard and i saw a private Soldier who stood in the Highway fall dead. The single shot was followed by another and another Ana j then sore one shouted at the top of his voice a a great heavens but there Are the a johnnies in Battle line a there was a panic at once. No one supposed there was a Confederate 1 within five Miles of us and had they been looked for it would have been j from the other direction a few men a got into i Hie Here and there but the resistance melted away As the confederates advanced. It was a furious fire which Quot Jackson a men poured into the eleventh. They were elated and very enthusiastic and they swarmed through the Forest As if their number was endless. Men have said that the panic would have extended no further and that the corps would have speedily recovered from the Surprise and men have written that but for one Many a coolness at the critical moment Jackson would have driven a wedge into the Federal army. Gen. Pleasanton then commanding three regiments of cavalry and a Field Battery Lay in position to be run Over by the frightened fugitives As they sought a place of safety. In the midst of the most embarrassing confusion he sent a regiment of dismounted cavalry Forward to form a line and Check the Confederate Advance and the other regiments mounted at once charged into the mass of fugitives and drove them Clear off the Tiekle on the left of the Plank Road. Then one by one Twenty two guns were brought to the front and in timbered. To was in the cleared Field to the left of the Chancellorsville Plank Road and about half a mile below the famous Brick House. Those guns end bladed Jackson a whole front and the moment his lines broke cover they were met with such storms of canister that whole regiments Lay Down after the first Volley. For the first Quarter of an hour these guns were supported by the cavalry alone but As regiment after regiment was picked up whirled about and sent to the Gap the support soon became a division. Other batteries were rushed Down the Plank or across the Field and by and by Jackson s Golden moment had passed. The Federal army had faced to the rear and the great Gap had been closed by artillery. Just at Sundown Jackson grew restive under the terrific fire and ordered a general Advance. Long lines of men sprang to their feet and rushed Forward with cheers and yells determined to have the guns. It did not seem As if anything living could Croes that it pen space of goo feet with such a Tornado of canister sweeping Over it i Indian football How the game is played by the there Are ways and ways of playing football and while the highest Type of football evolution May be represented by the Long haired thick padded ear and nose protected collegiate gladiators of to Day who smash anti crush the daylights out of each other in superhuman efforts to Lodge an inflated pigskin within the goal there Are other games of football played annually within the limits of the United states that require in a modified Way almost As much endurance Pluck and skill to Lead to Victory. The map Ito indians of southwestern Arizona Ami Northern Sonora Mexico have a game of football All of their own conceiving a game which has been handed Down generation after generation from times far More Remote than the Spanish conquerors of Mexico and it May be possible that the southwestern Redskin was the original promoter of the game which causes thousands at present to yell themselves hoarse on Eastern Gridiron in the ecstasy of Victory or to go Home covered with a gloom thicker than the padded mud Bedau bed Anatomy of the Defeated. A the in Pangos play the game with solid balls of Wood four inches in diameter. Made from the Wood of the Mes quite tree. They Are chipped and whittled into approximate shape and finally rounded to nearly perfect spheres by irksome rubbing upon that stones. The game consists in carrying these balls of Wood by kicking and throwing them away with the Bare foot Over a Straightaway course to a turn and Back to the starting Point the Winner being the Man who throws the Ball across the line first. In the big contests this course is from two to three Miles Long or one to one and one half Miles to the turn and it May Currence a wild an excited congregation gather around the starting line coaching their favourites with cries of Praise and flinging taunts of weakness and general decrepitude at All competitors up to the moment they Are off. What a race now one Man is ahead and his clan yell in a frenzy of Joy but he fumbles the Ball with his foot and another Lithe sprinter has thrown in front of him. They Are making the turn. One or two Are hopelessly in the rear. On they come and the last mighty spurt for Victory is made with jaws set and Muscles quivering under the terrible Strain. Two balls go into the air at once kicked by powerful legs. One drops Short of the line a few feet and the other Rolls Over a Winner. The game is Over and the players Limp and prostrate Are carried into the Little grass houses to recuperate Aai 1 As the years to by champions of san Xavier Village the Victor and his people Are Happy in tie knowledge that they Are Richer by far since morning in ponies and personal effects.

Jor in a permanently contracted condition. Straighten the Back and the fatigue will disappear. Pain in the Back from Riding is due to jolting and generally to leaning Over. Fatigue of or pain in the rectus Lemoris is due to the double work that muscle has to perform in cycling. It not Only Straightens the leg when the foot goes Down but pulls the knee up the next moment. No other muscle does so much work on the wheel. It is the great a a push muscle in cycling. Fatigue in the tibial is antics is relieved by changing the gearing of the wheel so As to work the ankle As Little As possible. It is the same fatigue Felt in fast walking for a considerable time. Fatigue at the ankle joint is relieved by changing the gearing. The Muscles Are not drawn exactly due to nature but so As to show them Best. Old rat stood guard. Go. When the word is Given each Man takes two Long Swift strides to his Ball and inserts a is toes under it by punching them 1 in the Sand and then hurls it through the ail with a powerful swinging i kick As far As a Strong White Man can 1 throw a base bail.

No tackling or interference of the players is allowed and padded clothes Are at a discount for the runners Seldom Wear More than an attenuated Bleeth clout and mud painted legs. Certain mystical markings of yellow and red Adobe mud decorate each players legs an Are supposed to make him supple and Strong and to enable him to Fly with the wings of Mercury himself. This football contest is an inter Village one and every year in the widely separated villages of this desolate and arid Region there Springs up in the hearts of Ali the male population a spirit of contest so fierce indeed that they Send carriers scurrying across the desert waste to Challenge other villages and to Herald the skill and prowess of their football runners and to hauntingly voice their ability to Insp up the Earth with every Village singularly and collectively that dare come to compete with them. Challenges Are accepted and dates for a great inter Village contest Are decided upon and the pick of the Village brawn and skill go into training for the events an event which Means that the visiting villagers who go in Masse to witness the sports May return Home uproariously Happy with All the Chattle and personal effects of their hosts or if they Are losers they go Home on foot plodding Over Plain Sand without even the Solace of counting ties. The Pangos Are profound gamblers and will stake even their the first were considered marvels in Speed Ami Comfort. Stage coaches were used in England at the end of the seventeenth Century. They Are described in an old Book by a traveler who says a by stage coaches one May be transported to any place sheltered from foul weather and foul ways free from endangering ones health of body by hard jogging or Over violent motion and this not Only at a Low Price As about a shilling for every five Miles but with such velocity and Speed As that the posts in some foreign countries make not More than five Miles a Day for the stage coaches called flying coaches make forty or fifty Miles in a Day As from London to Oxford or Cambridge and that in the space of twelve hours not counting the time for dining setting Forth not too Early nor coining in too this journey in 1666 occupied two Days but a coach called the a flying coach a was afterwards put on which performed it in thirteen hours in the summer. As late As 1692, however the time taken in Winter was two Days. A writer in 1673, suggested that Only one stage coach should go to every Shire town in England once a week and that the Speed should not be More than thirty Miles a Day in summer and Twenty five in Winter. Nine years later the journey from Nottingham to London occupied four Days in Winter. A writer in the reign of William iii., describes England As excelling All other nations in the matter of coaches which he particularly praises for their expedition. A some of these coaches a he says a will travel above fifty Miles in a summer the state of the roads in 1703 May be gathered from the fact that it took the King of Spain fourteen hours to go from Portsmouth to pet Worth in Sussex. An attendant says that he did not get out of the coaches a save Only when they were overturned or stuck fast in the mire a and the last nine Miles took six hours to cover. The Fine roads kept which England enjoys to Day Are due to the stage coach and the comparison Between the roads Over which first they travelled and those of to Day is wide in deed. Guarding the treasure. It snot by his own men. But whole regiments charged up to with Fri fifty feet and scores of confederates dashed in among the guns and were killed there. The charge was repulsed but to let a made again and i again. When night had settled Down Jackson gave it up. He could not drive his wedge past the muzzles of piers Antony a guns. He had hoodwink Hooker routed a whole corps and Laid his plans for a great Victory. That storm of canister checked him death brought his plans to naught. The confederates who advanced against those guns defied death a thousand times Over. Those killed were in most instances riddled and torn to pieces. The burial parties found bodies with fifty wounds and beads legs and arms were scattered ail along the front. Hardly a wounded Man was found on the Battery warned Yousik rodent of the dangers of the trap. The shrewdness and via gait of aged members of the rodent family have been demonstrated in numberless instances but an incident recently witnessed by supt. Tyler of the City Hall is worthy of remark. The Yard of a House adjoining a stable on seventeenth Street above Fairmount Avenue has been infested with rats for a Long time and a few Days ago a member of the family set a Large wire trap in the Yard. Or. Tyler was seated in the rear room of a Grayson Street House and watched results with great interest. First one rat studded across the grass and took an observation. In another minute a dozen Little rats came trooping along with the evident intention of sampling the cheese. Just then a lean Long Gray old rat with his tall chopped off. Probably from a previous experience with traps appeared and chased All the Little rats away. The old fellow kept watch All the afternoon and effectually prevented a single rat. Young or old. From entering the trap a Philadelphia record. A religious ainu. The minister had been in the Little Kentucky town but a Short time and when he was called on to preach a funeral Sermon he thought it Best to pick up a few facts about the deceased. A i Trust our brother was a truly religious Man a lie said to the surviving Brot her. A you bet he was a was the Earnest answer. A Why. Brother he never Tuk out his gun to Lay in or one of the summonses without Fust praying three enquirer. In i Kiny up the Hull for a kick. Rawhide sandals on the turn of the Dice. When the time for the great struggle draws near the men women and children of the near Village or villages. Set off for the seat of War carrying with them their culinary utensils and sufficient food to subsist while away taking also most of their personal effects and horse Stock to Back their convictions of Success. It is a truly gala occasion for there Are dances and fiestas in which All take part horse races and exhibitions of daring equestrian skill Given by the Indian Vaqueros. Who Are quite As dexterous As the american Cowboy in Riding ponies and casting the Row hid e Varlet. Nothing however detracts from the chief event and on the Day of its of the Dank of England a method of Protection $25,000,000. Of the millions of pounds of treasure stored during the year in the Banks of London so careful and thorough is the system of surveillance that rarely More than a few thousands get into the hands of thieves and burglars. Few great Banks in the world Are so carefully guarded As the Bank of England. The a old lady of thread Needle Street keeps a Good watch upon her treasures. One room alone the specie room is estimated to contain Gold coins of the value of $25,000,000. The safety of the Bank of England is further insured by a magnificent system of electric wires All of which communicate with the quarters of the Bank guard and elsewhere. If a burglar touched these wires he would set into motion Bells whose sound would alarm every one within hearing distance and the thief would fall an easy prey. Many of the safes will stand anything except dynamite. Every Bank and insurance company a office in London has its own Strong room and safes in which May be stored valuables Etc. The newer Banks probably possess the safer Strong rooms for in their construction the latest improvements Are incorporated. In nearly every Case the big Banks Are chary of speaking of the manner in which they keep to Weir treasures. One Bank permits Only its manager and an assistant to visit certain Strong rooms while another to guard against any tendency shown by tie watchman to fall asleep presents its servants with chairs on which they can sit in a certain position. If one Falls asleep and moves in the chair the piece of furniture closes up and throws him upon the floor. The result is that unless the watchman an sleep while standing or walking the employees of the Bank Are bound to keep their eyes York Mer j Cury. The rain pattered against the window panes it fell from the Gray sky to the Gray Street like a Bead curtain that shimmered incessantly. On the Hearth a Jovial log fire crack eled. Mrs. Winslow shivered quite luxuriously thinking what a horrid Day it was. She was sitting at a Little table and on it was a Rosewood desk. She wore an old Tea gown and old slippers and she was indulging in old memories the latter she was relentlessly tearing up. Already Many scraps Lay in the waste baskets a Limp somewhat Musty Heap. From the open lid of the desk came a faint odor of Crisp Rose leaves of Yellowish perfumed notes and fragrant Wood. It was Twenty years since the contents had been disturbed. The Day before her wedding mrs. Winslow had tucked them away and shut them in safely and after a while had lost the key. To Day she broke the lock in the matter of fact Way of forty she was destroying the foolish sentimental ties. She fingered the Odds and ends smiling indulgently at the thought of the Young person who had not been Able to part from them. She examined the desk critically. She thought it might be renovated for Genevieve. The child would soon be sixteen. Mrs. Winslow herself was sixteen when her Mother had bosom friends and then the time she had Laid her tousled head Down upon it and had cried As one cries but Seldom then How tragic the thing bad been and now How trivial it seemed would Genevieve care for the desk she wondered. One of those spindle legged modern antique affairs might please her More than Given it to her and it then was a generation old. She smoothed the faded purple velvet. It was Cut where the lids Bent and on it were Odd Little shiny spots. The times and times she had least her elbows there and had scribbled Idle hieroglyphics on her Best writing paper waiting for inspiration the times and times she had dashed off impetuous volumes to this shabby portable relic she raised the lid of the smaller compartment the holy of holiest and the trifles it contained she touched with lighter fingers. There was the stubby wooden penholder its end half nibbled by impatient Young Teeth. There was a bit of ragged blotting paper Black with use. What cherished perished correspondence had been condensed in it there was a poor Little Bunch of withered violets a boutonniere from what Many a buttonhole there was a tiny Little packet of notes bound by a Rotten elastic a from John Morgan who had never married. And there was a corpulent package of letters lavishly tied with Pink ribbon. Those were times. Last of All in an envelope she found two photographs. One was a round faced smiling saucy girl who stared Back at her with a twinkle in her Eye. Mrs. Winslow frowned slightly disapprovingly. She critically noted the dowdy Cut of the dress the superabundance of hair on the forehead the air of a dressed in my Best a suggested by the whole. A did 1 really look like that a suggested mrs. Winslow. She glanced at a portrait hanging opposite her. She saw a Well preserved woman gorgeously gowned of Fine presence and somewhat severe expression. Again she studied tin photograph and. With a certain patronizing indulgence she called it yet it was charming fresh amiable a face that delighted menus eyes and haunted their memories. The other likeness was that of a very Young Man. Mrs. Winslow held it in the Palm of her hand. The firelight shone Ruddly on it and tinted the hair with Gold. It was quite amusingly old fashioned the coat was baggy the Collar too Low the Scarf comical. The face was exceedingly comely Boyish serious purposeful. There came into mrs. Winslow a eyes a something misty and tender. Her lips moved. A tim my Darling a she whispered. The picture eyes looked at her with a Frank Sweet look that had thrilled her Long Long ago. A Are you really dead time Dearest a the something in her eyes dropped from her spare lashes on the faded velvet and it made a dark spot among the shiny ones. Dusk was entering the room. Shadows blotted the Corners. The fire Light danced on the pictures and Bric a Brac touched them up fantastically. The rain had ceased pattering. In the sky. Near the roof line of the opposite houses was a Long Golden rift. Mrs. Winslow walked to the window and gazed up into it. Suddenly there was a noise of heavy Steps in the Hall a hand brusquely pushed aside the curtains in the doorway. Mrs. Winslow started guiltily across the threshold. A Well Nell what Are you doing in this gloom How you women love the dark a she met him and they exchanged a Curt marital Salute. A a you re come Home Nice and Early Arentt you dear a she said and edged toward the desk. He had already lit the Gas. And was standing with legs spread 011 the Hearth briskly rubbing his hands. A a what Sall this stuff. Nell never saw this desk a a it a been knocking about the Garret. I Only found it to Day. In be been amusing myself rummaging through she began hastily to scattered things. A Why a a he exclaimed a a there san old picture of you a sweeping by he picked up the photographs lying together those had been trying particularly to out of sight. A a it a a Good one. How pretty were Nell a then glancing at other he burst into a great laugh. A Good lord a he cried gather up the two she slip you the Hearty a did i Ever look like that a a Short stories. There is probably no building material so desirable As Well made bricks in the British museum Are bricks taken from the buildings in Nineveh and Babylon which show no sign of decay or disintegration although the ancients did not Burn or bake them but dried them in the Sun.
