until after the official order is Issued.
The order. It Is stated, will probably
be issued this week, and the First Ne
braska will be on United States soil by
Christmas It was on this account
that the Christmas boxes which
started some days ago for Manila were
stopped at San Francisco on what was
considered perfectly reliable Informa

dered home having been received.

In climate the regiment will not come
