STORY OF FIFES AND DRUMS

I im they have been trying to banish
drums from the French army and that to
prevent it dramatist has written a play
around dmma, and the Parisian howl like
mad as a battery of drummer thunder
nun the stage. One critic questions
whether it Is applause or execration, and
says either would be unintelligent and no
orlterlon, since the drums make too much
noise for anyone to hear himself think.
The Eleventh and Seventeenth Infantries
Wore the last regiments In our service that
retained the Tlfes and drums. It Is op
tional with the' colonels to have bugles or
fifes and drums. ... i-
1 was 'in the midst of a bugle and fife
nd drum controversy as soon as I Joined.
Our post there In New Mexico' was a two
companV post, one company from a bugle
regiment, the other from a fife and drum
oat fit. 'Schwarti, a J'ennsylvanian of Ger
man,' descent, commanded the bugle com
pany, while McAndrews, a Pennsylvanlan
of Scotch,, ancestry.' had the .Solace of fife
nd drura., iTha two captains would get
rather .testy debating the claim of the two
kinds 6f music.
i tchirairu' for the Bugle.
Pen warts said a drum was not depend
able. When wet, .'hot only was Its sou ad
faint, but the sticks were liable to punch
through the soggy' head. A fife without .'
drum was helpless. A bugle could tie
played and heard In any weather and was
10 small that a bugler could fight as 'well
as anyone, while a drummer couldn't do
much but carry bis drum.
"The fife and drum are Instruments of
savagery," said Kchwartt. "The only musio
a rife Is fit to play are the wild Scotch and
Irish airs, and so. it Is that all but the
two English speaking armies have kicked
It out. , It la In the blood of the British
tuck to like that sort of music," -
Jt wasn't long before Schwarti had a
great ; triumph, ilurella, Mexican store
keeper, hire the buglers .to play at his
plaoe .five afternoons. week, the people
enjoyed It so. A bugle Is so limited In Its
performance that this seemed strange.
The lakaowa qoantlty.
About this, time an epidemic of drunken
ness began In our command. We couldn't
discover how the men got the liquor. The
guardhouse was full, and things were un
pleasant. '.A month went by and the Mexi
cans didn't get tired of bugling, and the
soldiers kept on getting drunk. The bug
lers each had two bugles. Tou change the
key of a bugle by putting In a crook. Oh
day McAndrew said:
"Schwartx," If you put a C and 3 crook
on an F bugle Vt the same time you'd get
about X, wouldn't you? That represents
the unknown quality of whiskey your
buglers have been bringing In. They al
ways carried both bugles, and when I
finally realised that they also alwWya had
both crooks on that led to my discovering
this was a device to Increase the capacity
of the Instrument aa a receptacle for
whisky. Don't talk to ma, Schwarti.
Fifes and, drums never debauch a . com
mand." ;The Navajoa began cutting tip and, we
went after them. McAndrew's company
and half of Schwarts's, with the result
that at the close of a 'September day we
found oxyselvee cornered In the foothills
by too or 600 Indians. Back of us was a
range with, whose geography we were un
acquainted. In that country you keep
out of a district unless some one with you
knows where the widely separated springs
are. In front of us, where the plain met
the hills, lay the Indians. It would be a
hard and dangerous tank to push on
across the mountains. The Indians knew
It and settled down to beselge us. j
Written m Draabtai,
rV-oond day a Puablo Indian came down
off the mountains on a burro, book I tig
after some sheep, perhaps. He couldn't
talk English, and It he could talk Spanish
ws wouldn't have known It. But we and
he could say "Alcalde de Toaa," which
meant head man of Taos. The Pueblos and
Navajo didn't like each other, but with a
war with the whites on their hands the
latter wouldn't stir up another with the
Pueblos. They'd let thl man through, and
we could give him a letter which he could
give the Alcalde and troops be sent to our i
relief. But, although Hchwarts had a pen
cil, there wasn't a scrap of paper in the
command. Couldn't writ on handkerchiefs,
the pencil was so hard, or on sage brush,
the only wood available.
"I was thinking," said Drummer fljaton,
"that you could write on a strip of drum
head like pie."
Which we did, taking the atrip from the
snare head, and the drum could still be
played. But It would be a week or more
before w could expect relief, and we were
provisioned for four days. We didn't like
the thought of eating pack mules, and It
didn't seem Anglo-Saxon to let even 600
Indians bottle us up without snaking lomt
attempt to get out.
A night attack, a rear r flank attack. Is
always disconcerting, . even to civilised
troops, and It Is completely demoralising
to unclvllfzed forces. So long as they felt
there Waa any chance that we would try
to break out no one Would watch us -more
sharply than those Navajos, but If we
could make them think w were going to
keep quiet for any period they would aban
don guard entirely for that period.
"We'll sing and dance around our fires,
pretending to be very jolly and engrossed
in fun," said Schwartx, "and after a bit
most of us will sneak out and get behind
'em and attack."
'Arklng the captain's pardon and the
other officers' pardons," suddenly said Mur
phy, saluting at least three times, "know
ing It Is not the part of a private, and a
flfer at that, to hand In advice, may I call
to your recollection that among Indians
dancing accompanied by singing means get
ting ready to fight, and they're liable to
think that Is what our demonstration
means, and are our men actors enough so
their voices wouldn't betray It was manu
factured merriment? Indians are very keen
about such things.. But If I might suggest
sirs, I would play some lively tunes on my
fife, and that would furnish the noise neces
sary to attract their attention and explain
the danolng. Besides, the voice of the fife
la always the same, and the Indians could
not detect any Insincerity In It."
A Ceaplcte Host.
At S o'clock. ten . men were left Jigging to
Murphy'a fife around a big fire In the cen
ter of our blvouao, and the rest of the
command made a wide detour, got down to
the plain and behind, the Indian camp. We
crept up almost fupon It unchallenged.
Lieutenant Sawyer mad a reconnaissance.
"There aren't a fourth of them here.
They can't bs making an attack or they'd
all. be gone. What does it mean?"
"Means they've crept up to listen to Mur
phy and watch the Jigging; Just dribbled
away .on by on without any concerted
action. They're between ber and .our biv
ouac," said Schwartx.
"And If they let their curiosity and pleas
ure lead them near enough to find there
are only eleven men there It will be the
end of the fifing," said McAndrews.
We moved up the slope, silent, dark fig
ures, slowly moving nearer the .merry
strains of Murphy's Jigs. We threaded our
way am6ng them quickly, making no reply
to an oocaslohal grunt, all about in the
loose, open mob of Indians, and "Bang!"
went McAndrew s pistol; . ''bang," went
sixty-four rifles, and -away, went ike Nava
jos. Never waa there a more . complete

CJULD HOT REACH
lvw Woman Tells Why Ordinary Doc
tors Fulled to Cure Her
THEY ONLY TREATED SVMPTOM3.
fche Got No Relief Until the Cause Was
, Removed by United Doctors'
: Here is an Iowa woman who tells the
true cause why so many doctors fall to
cure s.ek people. She says that In her
ess they were unable to teach the cause
or give her any satisfaction aa to what
wi th matter with her. Too many
aootcrs are satisfied to treat th symp
toms, "end any fair minded, intelligent
person would know at once, that no dis
ease can be really cured unlesa the cause
Is found and removed.
That la one reason of the auccess of
the, I'nlted Doctors, those expert medical
specialist who have tholr Omaha Intl
tule on the second floor of the Neville
Block, corner Itth and Harney streets.
They always local and treat th cause.
Thus their cures are real and lasting.
Suoh letters as the following are re
ceived by th United Doctors every ilay:
"Dear Doctors: On May 24th 1 came
to th United Doctors after Buffering
with rheumatism, liver and other com
plaints for quit awhile. I had tried a
number of other physicians who diagnosed
tny case differently and each one :ave
me a different .treatment, but it seemed
as though none of them could get dowi
to the cause of my dlsraue, or could give
me any satisfaction as to what was the
matter with, me..
"When I came to th United Doctors,
the,. doctor txumlned me and told me
what was the matter with me and how I
felt and that he could cure me in a short
time. I at once began treatment and now
feil like a Tew woman. Before I came
to Mi' wonderful specialists I had spells
of Rheumatism every two week or so,
but since I have been taking thslr med
U'Ib I hav not -had even one attack.
"I really cannot spaak too highly of
these specialists, and would be glad to
nswer any written Inqu.rles as to my
pust and present condition."

PRICE OF JSHQES GO UP
Too Much Leather Used lax Other
Way Cause Plach la, '
A great many people are wondering
why It is, with th IS per cent tariff
removed from hides by '.he Payne-Aldrlch
bill, that the price of shoes , has not
fallen correspondingly, or that the prlc
of prepared hide, Instead of falling, has
advanced. According to It. S. Barnet,
president of th Barnet Leather com
pany, and Editor Brown of the Shoe and
Leather Reporter, 160 Nassau atreet, New
York, this advanc IS brought about by no
artificial causes. It la simply the result
of a great Increase In th demand, with
a coincident decrease in the supply.
The advance has been tremendous, as
all dealers admit from 7 to 20 per cent
above a year ago and from 10 to 62 per
cent above two year ago. The ultimate
result to the shoe trade. It la believed,
will be an Increase In price from IS to
25 cents a pair, probably, in higher
grades. The actual advanc In th prlc
of hide over last year Is from IS to
20 per cent. This 1 what Mr. Barnet
ha to say of It after three months' care
ful observation In Europe:
''The reason of th high prloai In .lides
Is that cattla are raised for consumption.
and the demand for leather is constantly
Increasing; manufacturer are constantly
opening up now export fields, which take
so much more leather out of th market.
There is no prospect of lower prices in
"The population of the world Increases
much more rapidly than th raising of
cattle; Japan and China and other coun
tries with their enormous populations are
wearing more shoes mad of leather than
at any previous time. I found empty
warehousues abroad where there should
have been full ones, and mora buyer
Regarding th Increased demand for
leather In line other than for shoes
Editor Brown pointed to the quantity
now used In automobile aa a striking
"In th last three - years," he said,
"that Industry has increased more than
two-fold. Each automobile take for
upholstering, on th average, three com
plete steer hides; think of the difference
In demand that one Item makes.
'Then, too, you must hav noticed the
sort of bags women carry now In place
of th oM-fashloned pocketbook. Beside,
th demand for leather furniture has in
creased vastly, and that for fancy leather
goods, burnt leather, etc I think the
final result will be the Increase In price
of shoes from II to ii per cents a pair;
not more." New York Times.

that a prudent and honest management

consideration of all th evidence that the
rates complained of ar not confiscatory,
