On Sunday night two of our men
Goodwich and Sheets, of Nelson and
Superior, tried out in the cornet sec
tion for the regiment band and suc
ceeded in carrying off the honors for
the first chair.
On Monday, during the period for
athletics, our best foot racers ran
races with Co. P and wo succeeded in
carrying off the honors.
On Tuesday, after taking our morn
ing exercises all of tho regiments in
our batillion and several other regi
ments marched up into the hills where
wo heard a very good spech by a
Frnch officer. Wc then marched
back and had a company drill. In
the after noon wo drilled a while and
the second hunch of privates were
given their second shot in the arm
and the first bunch of us practiced
drilling with real rifios. Our officers
'inform us that wo will use tho Enfield
rifle, which shoots ten times.
On Monday afternoon the company
had a very enthusiastic athletic meet
ing and Captain Fisher and Lieuten
ant Baldwin gave very good talks and
a great deal of pep will spring forth
in the future, which 'will result in
having Co. G the best drilled company
in army tactics as well as athletics
over on the other side.

size of our barracks. The building

On Wednesday wc didn't work very
hard owing to the fact that the second
bunch had core arms and some were

In the morning our regiment, which
consisted of 2300 men on that day,
marched to the hills, where wc list
ened to a very forcible address by
General Woods, and ho said in part
that they were giving us plenty of
athletic and physical training as this
wasn't a war of machines and could
not be won by any genius like Edison
but 'was a war of personal combat of
-man against man, and also talked on
, the subjects of military discipline and
courtesy, preparedness, universal and
compulsory military training, signifi
cance and seriousness of this war and
our fortune of being able to get pre
pared and the slow realization of the
' general public that we are at war. In
the afternoon wo spent the time at
drill and tho Captain also talked on
Tho Service of Security at tho time
given for that subject, after which we
practiced for a while at the daily ex
ercise of bayonet drill. In the evening
the beds were rearranged so as to
make room for fifty men who arrived
at four o'clock Friday morning from
Lincoln county. A fire broke out

On Friday night the Yost meat
market was entered vithout the per
mission of the proprietor but nothing
of special value was taken. The
pad-lock, which was removed from tho
front door, was found in the Morhart
hardware store, this establishment
having also been entered through a
back window. An inventory of the,
stock showed that several revolvers
had been taken by the thief. A box
of sai dines and a note book was left
behind which furnished a clue for the
officers, who at once phoned the var-'
ious' surrounding towns to bo on the '
look-out for the juvenile law-breaker.
In due time Sheriff Huffcr was noti
fied that the person in question, Geo.
Murphy, had been taken into custody
at Iluidy by the officers of that place.
The sheriff immediately went to that
city and the prisoner was turned over
to him. He was brought to tills city
and given a f hearing before Judge
Ranncy and sentenced to a term in the
