Four boys play at being soldiers, but Julius grows weary and deserts. After his capture, he is court-martialled and pays the penalty of death. "'Ha!ha!ha!' said Julius, rising, and taking off his bandage, 'I suppose, now that I am shot, I may be permitted to go and amuse myself as I please until to-morrow, when you know it is my turn to play the captain!'"
