A TRUMPETER, bravely leading on the soldiers, was captured by the enemy. He cried out to his captors, "Pray spare me, and do not take my life without cause or without injury. I have not slain a single man of your troop. I have no arms, and carry nothing but this one brass trumpet.""That is the very reason for which you should be put to death," they said; "for while you do not fight yourself, your trumpet stirs up all the others to battle."
