HIS DAD A MERRY CHASE.
From VcdnoMlay's Inily.
As the secretary of the V. M. C.
A. Mr. C. C. Wescott will have to be
come a hardened soldier, just as
some one who shall occupy the
trenches, and is required among oth
er things in his training that he
shalj be able to stand a lone; hike,
and so this morning the first day fol
lowing the receiving of the message
calling him to the service, lie pre
pared to get into the proper condi
tion. This morning C. C. Wescott
and his son Mason Wescott started
for Omaha, making the distance on
foot, and requiring about four hour
for the trip. Mr. Wescott is a pretty
good walker, but the hitching of
himself up against the younger man
made him quickly understand that
there was pep in the next genera
tion. Mason came home on the noon
train, while his father waited un
til the evening train. We are not
sure it was to rest before he ap
peared at home or not. but it would
require as .much evidence to estab
lish the fact that he was not tire J
as it would that he was.
