You are right about music in _No. 44_.  "A Horse's Tale" includes a fair
amount of
music toward its end, such as "Reveille," "Assembly," "Taps," "Boots and
"To the Standard," as well as "Soldier Boy's Bugle Call" (Soldier Boy is the
narrator).  What is interesting that Twain places the music staffs for the
songs within
the story.  I'm not sure of his purpose, but it is an arresting narrative
