December 31, 1879. The authorities
not only called the proceedings a
riot, but they aald that It was rebel-
Hous In IU nature, and aa the result
of it Gen. John M. Schofield, superin-
tendent of the academy, placed the
100 cadets under arrest.
The riotous demonstration at the
academy on that night broke all
academy precedents. It was planned
by a dozen daredevil cadets of the
first class who were to graduate the
following June and who wished to
mark In a manner unprecedented the
ushering In of their graduating year.
About 20 cadets by a continued
course of good conduct had succeed-
ed in securing leave for two days at
Christmas. When they returned from
,lr.l8h0rt furIough thpy brought
with them In valise and in trunk ev-
ery variety of fireworks known to
the ingenuity of the manufacturer-
Roman candles, skyrockets, cannon
crackers and other noise and fire

hidden away in the mattresses of the
cadets all over the barracks For
nearly a week tlle boys s|ept ^ ^

went back to barracks.
The bell in the tower of the old academic
building killed the first stroke of midnight.
Before the second stroke came there was a
roar from the river front, followed b/ another
roar, another and yet another. T.-ien there
came a shock that shook the plateau and sent

Col. Kennon Is an example of
the class of men who develop
gravity and solidity of character

greater several times than that
which is allotted to the average

staid soldier's subordinates could
to-day. by the wildest flight of his
imagination, picture to himself his
commanding officer holding on like
grim death with six other cadets
to the edge of a blanket while
from its center a "plebe" was
soaring skyward. Yet for this of-
fense Kennon was once suspended
from the military academy.
Somewhere out In the northwest
is Maj. John D. McDonald, whose
service has brought him fume and
who looks as though he couldn't
break a military ruCivlth a sledge

Donald was serving In the Philip-

he bad an idea that he could hood-

other cadets who

academy deeds of dar-
