Amono the Ned Wing attached to tile Bantaro some years ago there was not u More inveterate getter up of practical jokes limn it Apt. If., poor fellow lie is dead now hut the memory of some of ids laughable pranks still lives. In the Early history of a country whose existence is hut of recent Date i not. Ii. Was sent by the Secretary of War on n recruiting tour through Kastern Texas. When journeying from place to place of horse Back he chanced one evening to Stop it a Small tavern where lie soon discovered that every preparation was in Progress for a Hull. Over ready and re get for anything in the Huie of fun or frolic the Captain it once resolved to a a put up at the tavern for the night mid Lake part in the festivities. At the time the circumstances took place which we Are about to relate society was wild to lie divided into three distinct classes in Texas. First there a the aristocracy or Quot up it or crusts a who from the fact that they wore shoe und stockings were by common consent allowed to take precedence in All matters of taste Cleg Unce or then came the second or Middle class no order that wore shoes hut were Uii Able to go to the exit enc for stockings. The third or lower class Quot went Barefoot Ulm ranked Udow the first mentioned grades in every res sect. Thu was society divided at the Date of this Story. After Cut. Ii. Had a use Cuton ills horse and procured his own supper he repaired to the Hall room. There he found a promiscuous Assam hinge collected Ninny of them engaged in the Giddy mazes of to Tullous jigs mud country dances.

Ily this time the first society tie come wearied with salutary exercise mud relinquished their Culm to he next til rank. He wus another monopoly for unless n Ierson Ltd shoes upon his or her feet such Sentous would not he allowed upon the floor. It bore heavily upon the lower orders the shoeless and stocking less Gentry but they were compelled to submit to those arbitrary inns which always will govern alike in tic most free As in the most despotic countries. A wooden clock upon the mantel piece which found its Way into Texas in company with some Yankee pc blur. Was striking its Little ones before the Middle Renss la name wearied with Dnn Cong hut by the third watch of the night they tired themselves Down Aud manifested a willingness to give up the hour to the next in Grade. But now a dilemma occurred which entirely spoiled the sport of those who up to this time a a no show Quot whatever the fiddler who been imbibing rather copiously of whiskey was found to lie so drunk that he could not sit up of a chair much less draw a tune from he violin. They rolled the Drunken Man upon the floor they stirred hint lip they rubbed he head with vinegar Aud they crammed an entire Jai of i uder Wood s pickets Down his to limit hut All would not do. At this juncture and when the poorer Sople Huu Given up All in Desisti their spirits were suddenly dated by an of Flor on the part of copt. Ii.

The dancer were in cent Nelm the fiddle was procured and a cont Luon set was immediately formed on the floor a Apt. H. In in no articular hurry hut Eon tinned 111 flourishes in the Way of turning the instrument for some time. Once or twice he Drew the la a scientifically across the strings which were now horribly out of tune flourishes which caused the eager dancers Muied tardy to commence a a forwarding Quot across the floor but the waggish Captain no intention of giving them Quot Send Oft Quot so suddenly. At length thinking he infused a nil Clenty of the of dancing into the eager set he Drew the Cork by giving every string on the violin a general Rake with the Bow. Away they went like mad c Apt. Ii.
