The Burlington has problems to
solve which we know not of, unless
perchance we are observant. The
matter of seeuring4Jielj) has been a
problem, as the army has taken many
of their men and those whom they
can illy afford to part wit. They
have gone here and there to secure
others only to have them depart af
ter arriving, because they have
found no suitable place to stay. Just
now they are endeavoring to solve
that proposition, by building a lodg
ing camp, as they have elsewhere.
Ten box cars have been demounted
at the site of the old elevator, where
they have been made into a village
somewhat resembling the ancient
town of the oriental countries, and
the Mexican village with the court
or plaza in side. These ten cars are
arranged for a boarding camp. Five
bunk cars, one kitchen, two diners,
a refrigerator and a comissary car.
