and Mentally Some May
Resign From Guard When
T Is plainly the intention of the
war department to maintain the
Ht. drill nnd work regulations of the
national guardsmen, now en
camped on the Mexican frontier, until
the- men who are unable to stand the
physical strain are weeded cut and
their places filled by recruits. It is the
object of the Texas camps to transform
ti e militia into a body of soldiers rank
in ir with the repulars and to so turn
around the old time rules of conduct
j for the militia that tp3 entire ndlltla
l establishment of the country, as con
stituted before the call to arms last
month, will be thrown into the discard.
All this Is very well from the stand
point of the professional soldier. The
militiameu who went down to Texas In
response to an urgent call are not pro
fessional soldiers and have no idea of
devoting the rest of their lives to mili
tary work. It is a question whether
they can te imbued with the reprular
service idea, esiK"ciaJly as all danger of
war with Mexico has apparently
passed, according, to the news that
comes from Washington.
Without doubt the drills and camp
life are doing the men who can stand
the strain a world of good. They will
tro back home made over physically
and also helped mentally. They ought
to appreciate it, but they are stubborn
enough to imagine that the arduous

who want to fight for a living and not
on men who have jobs at homo.
Not nil the officers in the militia or
gnnizations are satisfied. Many say in
confidence- to tlieir friends that as soon
as they get out of the regular service
they are going to resign from the na
tional guard. It looks as though this
camp will impose on congress the task
of upsetting the whole militia program
and forming an entirely new policy of
national defense on land-
Bad Han Subdued.
Military policemen of the Seventy
first New York had their first en
counter with a would be western
"bad man." with discouraging results
to the bad man, who, having yet failed
to reclaim the six-gun the effete east
erners took from him, is believed to
lie slightly less bad than he was.
To make it won?, one of the New
Yorkers bears the mild name of Yas
sar. Yassar and Dooling were on
duty in the Mexican quarter of Mc
Allen when a ferociously armed and
caparisoned cowboy entered the larg- ;
est saloon and announced that he was
!ing to shoot up the place.
At this juncture the two soft spoken
Manhatfanltes entered- A few sec
onds later Dooling was In possession
of the Texan's artillery, and the Texan
was riding through the door on the toe
of Yassar's boot.
Horses For Pennsylvanians.
The distribution of mounts to tlie
troops of the Seventh division, nation
al guards of the United States from
Pennsylvania, has begun. Major Gen
eral George M. Clement, commander
of the division, with several aids and
a number of regular army officers,
made the first selection at the remount
station for use of division staff.
The division commander took a beau
tiful animal, sixteen and a half hands
high, a sleek bay, long of wind and
with muscles of steel and of sufficient
weight to bear hard service. Several
of the division staff oflicers tried out
their mounts recently, but a num
ber of others, including the command
er himself, are giving the horses a
chance to rest up.
The animals arrived in cars from the
east, the quartermaster's count total
ing approximately 2,000. It is said G3,-

Not only Pennsylvania militiamen, but
state trooxs from Massachusetts and
Rhode Island, also the regulars, are
to be mounted from the new supply.
One letter from an Illinois man says:
"We stopped at Marshall, Tex., and
remained two hours. A freight ahead
had been wrecked. I met a very won
derful young lady who was chaperon
ing a bunch of southern and congenial
beauties. Never more criticise the
southern hospitality. In other places
the populace grafts off the soldier lads.
In Texas they offer native fruits, sim
ple gifts and much real courtesy. They
have autos a-plenty, and they took us
riding. The young lady chaperon per
mitted me to assist in chaperoning in a
motorcar. She spoke kindly to me.
She smiled and even laughed aloud at

to 6hoot and improving the marksman

The lieutenant estimates the range,
instructs those who don't know how to
set their sights, tosses up a handful of

says when to set the wind gauge. Then
he follows results with his field glasses,
making needed corrections.

Second Illinois Infantry, has buret in

To ask this single question.
Just, "Dear, may I be thine?"
Although I don't know who you are,
But you're a soldier true.
So I will believe In you
As in the red. white and blue.
