Pershing's Big Stunt as Boy Was
Hanging Goat to Band Stand
Capt. Love, Owner of the "Billy," Was Furious When
He Found His Pet Dead in Center of Village
Pershing Not Afraid of Rattlers, but First Chew
Was Too Much for Him Raid on Peach Orchard
Was Rank Failure.
Peach orchards, since time Imme
morial, have been an attraction
which few small boys could resist.
John Pershing was no exception.
John.with several of his "gang" was
walking on the outskirts of the town
one Sunday morning and stopped
to rest near the home of Farmer
Margrave. Now in all Laclede there
was no finer peach orchard than
Farmer Margrave's and never be
fore or since, if one believes the
story, did the peaches appear more
alluring than on this particular Sun
day. Ripe, luscious looking, they
were an attraction that John and
the boys with him could not over
look. A few words were passed and John
were Grace, born March 29, 1859;
Rose and Ruth, twins, born in 1872;
Ward P., born March 29, 1874, and
Fred G., born in 1877. The twins
and Fred died in infancy.
Grace and Ward lived many years,
Grace to become the wife of Rich
ard B. Paddock, an officer, who fell
in the Boxer campaign, Ward to be
come a captain in the United States
army. Grace died in 1904. Her son,
Richard B. Paddock, jr., is a major
on his uncle's staff in France. Ward
died in 1909.

Let me tell you a story of him to

The old swimming hole, Lotus creek, near Laclede, where General Pershing swam and fished as a boy.
deployed his "gang," one boy to a-
tree and himself to the largest tree
of all. Everything was going nice
ly, just as the young leader of the
raiding party had planned, when
Farmer Margrave suddenly appeared
on thei scene. Retreat was inevi
table and it came, wild and hasty, be
fore the advance of the irate farm
er. It was a , successful 'retreat.
Farmer Margrave could not catch
one of the raiders, could not even
get near enough to them to recog
nize them. The whole town learned
of the raid a few hours later and
suspicion pointed to John.
Forgive Stealing; Not Lying.
Mr. Pershing, he was superintend
ent of the Sunday school of the
Methodist church at the time heard
of it and called John before him.
Whether John had ever read of
George Wasington and the cherry
tree is not known. But anvwav.
John, 'like George, confessed his
guilt and told the whole story, ab
solving the other boys. No blame
should attach to them, he told his
father, as he was the first to think
of raiding the orchard and directed
"Got any of the peaches, John?"
his father asked.
"No. sir," the boy replied. "We
had to leave too quickly."
"Well." said Mr. Pershing, after
a few moments of reflection, "if
Mr. Margrave should ever ask you
about the affair look him in the eye
and tell him the truth. I guess the
Lord understands what a tempta
tion an orchard or a watermelon
patch is to a boy, but He will not
stand for lying."
' Hanged the Goat
It was about this time in the gen
eral's life, the time of the peach
orchard raid, that an incident hap
pened whichj Laclede recalls today

old Laclede folks about Captain
We had lust planted the park
then," Mr. Lomax said. "One
night Captain Loves goat broke
loose and went to the park for a
banquet. He ate several of the
trees. - I hose he didn t eat ne
stripped of bark. John and I and
some of the other boys decided that
Mr. Goat had eaten his last txee.
Next night, led by John, we caught
Mr. Goat. We hanged him. Yes,
sir, we hanged him to the band
stand in the park. Of course Cap
tain Love's wrath was terrible. He
offered a Teward of $25 for the ap
prehension of anyone who took part
in the hanging. The reward is still
His First Chew.
The general's brother, "Jim"
Pershing, has many interesting
tales to recount of those childhood
days. There is one in particular,
the story of the first time he and
John ever chewed tobacco.
"John was 14 and I was about
12,'r Mr. Pershing said. "I think
perhaps we had tried to smoke be
fore. But we never tried to. chew.
One of the boys, Hawkins, offered
us a bite out of his plug of navy.
We accepted it and we bit into the
plug generously. We did- not want
Hawkins to" think we were molly
coddles. Since that day I always
smile when people talk of being
seasick. They really do not know
what misery is.

concludes this anecdote, "somehow

It seems to be well established that
this deficiency In phosphorous may now
be met by the use of an organis phos
phate known throughout English speak
ing countries as Bitro-Phosphate. Through
the assimilation of this phosphate by
the nerve tissue the phosphoric content
when absorbed in the amount Bormally
required by nature soon produces a wel
come change in our body and mind. Nerve
tension disappears, vigor and strength re
place weakness and lack of energy, and
the whole body , soon loses its ugly hol

veloped in a glow of perfect health and
beauty and the will and strength to be UP
Fhyslelans are now reeornlsina' Its
merits by its us in ever increasing
quantities. Frederick Kolle. M. D., editor
of New York Physicians' ''Who's Who."
says: "Bitro-Wiosphata should be pre
scribed by every doctor and used la every
hospital to increase strength and nerve
force and to enrich tha blood."
Joseph D. Harrigan. Former vlaltinar
Specialist to North Eastern Dispensatory,
says: xet those who are weaky thin,
nervous, anaemic, or run-down, 'take a
natural, unadulterated substance such as
bitro-Dhosphate and you will soon aea
some astonishing results In the increase
of nerve energy, strength of body and
mind and power of endurance."
Bitro-Phosphate Is made entirely at the
organic phosphate compound referred to ia
tne national standard Dispensatory as
being a preparation which has neentl
acquired . considerable reputation ia the
treatment of neurasthenia. The standard
of excellence, strength and purity : of its
substance is beyond question, for every
Bitro-Phosphate tablet is manufactured ia
strict accordance with the U. 8. Pharma
copoeia test requirements. Bitro-Phos
phate is therefore not a patent medicine
and should not be confused with any ef
the secret nostrums, so-called toaios er
widely advertised cure-alls. .
CAUTION : While Bitro-Phosphate is
unsurpassed for the relief .of nervousness,
general debility, etc, those taking It who
do not desire to put on flesh should use
extra care in avoiding fat-producing foods.
