Shortly after that the Boy sent
thirty pi eclous cents to Scout head-

There weie places in it that seemed
to me a good deal claptrap, a kind of
playing at make-believe; something
here and there which, to my way of
thinking, is forced or cheap and uso
less; something which lacks sense aud

woman's native misunderstanding aud

thus fooling the boys, he may better
give them a genuine (I) lesson iu llrst
aid to the injured. I read that one
leader pretended to be lost in some
big stretch of woods, so that the boys
would get the genuine lost-ln-the-woods
scare, such as the wilderness
pioneers had; aud there were other
All of this, as well as many other
minor details of the Scout movement,
I disapproved of, do still disapproe
of thoioughly. I thought them then,
aud I still think them, cheap and un
worthy; but in that Manual, as 1 icad
it, tlieie were pages, too, that glowed
with the light fiom a boy's own world.
Also, thcic was the page of Scout
laws, reading which, something iu me

Bilward E. Kasser, was the youngest
of tho three Kasser boys, who lu 1SI51,
offered up their young lives in defense
of the Hag of their country. We are
not sure but that there was another
brother, Christian, who also enlisted.
Christian, if we have the name correct
ly, died very soon after taking his
homestead. As we remember, the
three Kassers who first came to Ne
braska in 1870, were John, Gottlieb
and Christian. Edward Kusser did
not come here until several years later.
They were all Milwaukee boys, aud en
