Maryland (Maryland, United States) (search for this): article 15
Capital Joke. --A military company in full uniform was called out a short time since, by the Sheriff of Worcester co., Md., to capture a pudgy which was taking oysters against the law. The company, in a bateau, proceeded to the conflict. The captain of the pudgy went below and got out a stove-pipe, mounting it cannon style over the bulwarks, and standing at one end with a big lump of charcoal lighted and sparkling. The moment was critical, its every advantage on the side of the captain match. Simultaneously as he thrust the chunk of fire into the end of the stove-pipe the military jumped overboard, and such a "sloshing about," and diving was never witnessed in the waters of Worcester. It is needless to add that, while the military were under water, the captain of the pudgy hoisted sail, and bid farewell to the waters of Maryland, and that, since this marvelous adventure, the military company aforesaid, for behaving so gallantly, has been called the "Stove-Pipe Invincible."

ort time since, by the Sheriff of Worcester co., Md., to capture a pudgy which was taking oysters against the law. The company, in a bateau, proceeded to the conflict. The captain of the pudgy went below and got out a stove-pipe, mounting it cannon style over the bulwarks, and standing at one end with a big lump of charcoal lighted and sparkling. The moment was critical, its every advantage on the side of the captain of the pudgy, who straightened up, and at arms length prepared to apply the match. Simultaneously as he thrust the chunk of fire into the end of the stove-pipe the military jumped overboard, and such a "sloshing about," and diving was never witnessed in the waters of Worcester.
