SPARROWGRASS’ PROPOSITION,–

SPARROWGRASS’ proposition, that the Home Guard should not leave home except in case of invasion, is equal to the old story of the Bungtown Riflemen, an Ohio military company, whose by-laws consisted of two sections, namely:

“Article First.–This company shall be known as the Bungtown Riflemen.

“Article Second.–In case of war this company shall immediately disband.”
