New Youk, July 30. Tlio tendency of
men who go on camping parties to load
themselves with useless linpeiHinentii is
in exact proportion to their greenness in
tho Held. Tlio older nnd more expert
enccd a mnn is, tho less ho believes in
tho beauty of transporting an extra buck

A sash for tho waist or a strong belt will

at night serves for a pillow. For sleep

called a Scotch cap, may bo taken. It
forms a good nightcap and is comfort

shirts to the 'list, and a largo bathing
towel is never out of place. Do not con
sider it necessary to purchase suits of
clothes for camping. Every ono has
clothes which aro too old to wear in
town, and these aro just in tho right con
dition for the woods.
If you aro anxious, however, to haven
special suit, get one made of brown jeans,

pockets which marks them show a rate'
appreciation of one's needB in tho open,
and aro all useful. j
There is probably no question over
which men who camp out have wasted
so much breath as that of carrying a :
tent. It is beyond a doubt that a tent
is not only heavy and awkward to lug
along, but that it is tho source of no end i
of worry and bother. At tho same Hum i
ono must havo a roof of somo kind over i
him at night and when it rains, and
building shanties is not always practica
ble. I am willing to allow that a shanty
is much moro comfortable than a tent
can be, and that when ono has a shanty
he will neverdong for tho canvas substi
tute. Still, putting up a shanty uierel
to spend tho night in it is more work
than tho average man cares to expend.
My own enstom in such matters is to
make up my mind beforehand how long
1 am going to stay in one spot. If I atn
to spend from two weeks to u month nt
tho same place, then a shanty or very
large tent with a double roof is in order.
If I am to move every night a shelter
tent is enough. There is a modification
of this rule which is not without merit-
always use a shanty if eomo one else
builds it, for the labor of putting up
even a bark shelter is much more enjoy
able when undergono by another person.
in iiemuu ui bulimies lummy mini yuu
will need a tent of 6ome cort.
The camp tools consist ot an ax or
two, a trowel to dig the trenches around
tho tent, one of theso handles contain- ,
Ing awls, small gimlets, screw drivers
and the like, and if you havo those who
shoot In tho party, some assembling tools
for the guns. There should be in the
stout bag in which all theso aro kept a
piece of shoemakers wax, a hank of i
strong linen thread, a tin box of vubo- i
lino nnd one or two pieces of good glue.
It is well also to carry a few feet of cop
per wire, say No. 10, atul a pair of pin
cers. Rods will bie.ik sometimes, and ,
if one has the materials he can mend
them very fairly, while otherwise ho
will bo reduced to borrowiug. For clean
ing or oiling guns nothing is as good as
vaseline, It does not run if it gets tin-i
corked, and it keeps tlio guns in perfect I
condition This tool back should al
ways form patt of the p.iek of ono par- '
ticular man whose business it is to see
that things are teturned when uk-d.
Otherwise tho very thltig you wantjwill
be missing just when it is most needed
I suppose it is scarcely necessary to say
that each member of tlio party should
have a good jackknife, and a ten cent
whetstone in tho toot sack will come in
handily for these.
Tho branches ot tho tlat fir what is
called sapin in Kanuekia mako the
thebestofallcampbeds. They should
be tued liberally and piled up until the
ii until ,li
heap is at least eighteen inches deep It
is well to drivo small stakes down ou
each side of tho bed in order to prevent
the branches spreading over the floor.
In default of Hr, mako a pile of grass,
hay, small brush, bnllrushes or, (n fact,
anything that will serve to ralso you a
llttlo way from tho ground. Over this
bed spread your rubber blanket, fasten
lug It with loose strings to tho stakes to
keep It In place. Hy tho bye, get a rub
ber blanket with brass eyelets along tho
sides, On tho rubber goes tho blanket
bag', of course.
For eating and cooking let each man
provide himself with a largo pressed
block tin cup, a deep plato also largo
a knife, fork and spoon. Two tin milk
pans having been purchased, add ono
more of these for every three persons In
tho party To a party of six this would
give four pans, Have also an eight iptart
tin pall, with covert a four quart ditto,
with ditto, and for good measure, if the
party exceeds four, h second four quart
pall Purchase ono or two large, deep
frying pans, with covers, and havo do
tacliablo handles. Tho best handle Is
bent Into a tlat hook which Ills under a
strap riveted on tho sldo of tho pan.
Get what is called a Dutch oven. This
is a largo Iron iot, with a deep cover,
into which coals may bo put, and in
"' ,c" " nm vu uu" 'V"'' 7.
bako bread with gtvatest ease. It must
ho pointed out that when
tainted out that when using it for
baking tho heat must bo taken from the
coals In tho top or cover, and although
it is well to place tho pot near tho lire It
must not be close enough to heat from
the side or bottom.
This pot is also used for cooking ono
of tlio regular dishes of tho woods pork
and beans. In order to get these at
their best, dig a hole and (HI It with
burning sticks. When tho earth is tlwor-

The
commonest ot all catastrophes In camp
is upsetting the frying pan just when tho
fish and potatoes aro nearly done. I call
it a catastrophe, and tho name Is not a
misnomer, for it is beyond a joke to
I lose tho supper or breakfast with several
hungry men waiting for it. Tho danger
may bo guarded against easily enough.
Find four or bIx stones about tho sizo of
1 your head atul arrange them in two
lines near enough together to support
I tho frying pans firmly. Hack of this fire-
I place mako your camp fire, anil as soon
hs you havo a goodly storo of coals rako
these down between tho stones into n
good, hick heap. Then cook over them,
Tho sill, 8tones Kjveyou a rest for tho
!? "n,! on need havo no fear that it

c"n niako tho Oro itself between these
"tones if you wish by placing tho ends
f, ' "ticks together and shoving the
there Is more comfort to bo derived from
tho coals. Add to your equipment one
long iron spoon.
Stores for a camping trip may bo as
many as tho money available will buy
Thoso necessary, however, aro not ex
pensive and aro not difficult to carry.
Generally speaking, you should allow
fdr each perbon in tho party, per week,
three pounds of pork, two pounds of
flour, half a pound of coffee, half a peck
of iiotatoes, one-eighth of o peck of
onions, a pound of sugar and an ounce
and a half of 6alt. For tho whole party
carry a can of barring powder, half a
pound of pepper and a bottle of Worces
tershire sauce. In place of coflee, tea
may be taken if you prefer it, and tho
best way to carry either is in a wicker
covered demijohn with a good cork.
And speaking of coffee, the proper way
to mako it in tho woods is to soak it for
twenty-four hours in cold water, strain
through a cloth and heat up. Two or
three cans of condensed milk are not
amiss.
One does not go to the woods to bo
sick, but for all that a number of the
pany may we auacaeu or nijureu, unci k
Is well to havo home medicine. Quinine
In 2-grain pills for fover, Sun cholera
remedy for dysenteric atto'ks, somo lep
tandrin and podophyllyn pills for bilious
ness and some laudanum and arnica for
bruises will make up tho camp medi
cine chest. Add to these somo drachylon
plaster, a roll of bandage, some absorb
ent cotton, a good bistuary and a pair of
tweezers. The greatest danger to which
men in camp aro subject is an accident
while chopping wood or a sprain while
fishing. For tho first it is impossible
within 11 short articlo to give any direc
tions. The cut may bo 11 mere scratch
or something which demands the atten
tion of a surgeon as speedily as possible.
For the second no man need sufler from
a sprain who will put his ankle into a
water bucket and keep It there for a day
or two. A useful thing in tho woods is
a small bottle of ammonia, for this liquid
is an almost certain euro for all forms of
Insect bite, from those of mosquitoes to
spiders. Poultices in the woods are
mado of wet clay, and If they aro kept
wet they draw splendidly.

I was lonktnti at tho Murphy family In

handglass from his pocket and look at tlio
big "hippo" and then at himself, If )ou'u

the advisability of admitting a certain let

tiring that tho letter be given to him In
order that hn might decide the matter.
When tho letter was handed to him he put
on Ills spectacles, turned it first inside out,
then upside down, thon sideways, examin

Tlio train was speeding along when In
the distance a wagon loaded with wood
was sighted. It was standing In the road
beside the tracks, and as tho train ap'
preached it was seen that four sleepy look
ing mules were attached to It and that a
Wk ncisro was asleep on top of It.
"Why, dam 1110," said tho old northern
farmer who was going south to visit rela
tives, "he's stuck In the mud."
"Right you are," said the Pullman con
ductor Just then tho train shot by tho wagon
and nuo of the mules dipped an ear as a
sort of courtesy to tho passengers.
"And bust 1110 all up if tho driver ain't
asleep," exclaimed tho old farmer, hurry

"Looks that way," admitted tho con
ductor "Why, he ain't stuck bad," ho said aftor
a last look.
"No?"
"Naw. Old Nance, my gray maro, could
yank that load ot wood Into tho next
county and not half try."
"It wouldn't take much of a yank."
"And that feller with four mules jest lies
down on his load and don't try to get out."
"Yes; that's tho way they do down hero."
"Well, what In blazes li ho waiting for?"
The conductor seemed aurpriscd at the
