His teeth popped from his jaw, itself shattered. Mr. Ford fell hardly looked back on with any de- ;.gree of fond nostalgia.

A whistling cannon ball nipped off a part of'his leg downward .from just above the ankle. A lance down. Meanwhile, Senor Santa Anna was not finding it at all 'peachy. He had had a part of a leg misplaced too, only at a previous spot in time. His trouble lay in keeping his hollow leg intact. When the tide for his side ebbed. General Santa Anna decided to take leave, and he did so with much speed. Meanwhile, Mr. Ford, leg gone, teeth missing, jaw fractured, wrists punctured, blood all around, had no easy way of knowing the general's leg was flopping about somewhere, unattached. The best he could find in the way of a souvenir was a shoulder piece from a uniform. How he got it, cannot be known. But he got it and came 'back home and got well and had it with him for many years. It is possible the shoulder pads even belonged to General Santa Anna. Sport Parade <R*g. U.S. Pat. OH.)
