drill ground or going through the
various drills would never dream that
the organization was but one week
old. The truth of the matter is that
perhaps 90 per cent of the recruits
have had previous military experience
and that a general high order of in
telligence combined with superior in
struct ion has made possible results
that under less favorable circum
stances would require mouths to ac
complish. Work Not Too Hard
Capt. Hunt has the rare faculty of
getting the other fellow's view-point,
and he is constantly impressing the
importance of this. It for this rea
son that there is little fear that the
men in his camp will ever be serious
ly overworked. The drills, "setting
up" exercises, hikes, etc., while vigor
ous, have not yet caused a single man
to drop out of ranks. They are be
coming more strenuous daily, but as
muscles become accustomed to un
usual work the tasks become lighter.
Aside from some sunburned noses
and a few blisters on hands unaccus
tomed to handling a rille, no one has
suffered from the work. On the con
trary, a large percentage of the men
have acquired an erect and active
carriage which they did not have when
Made A Good Impression
L'rged by Capt. Hunt to not stay at
the Barracks over Sunday, almost all
of the Company went to Honolulu on
Saturday afternoon returning Sunday
evening in time for dinner. It was
the first time any of them had been to
town since the camp was organized.
The red, white and blue hat cords and
the neat chevron on the left arm with
letters "U. S. T. C." attracted general
attention and much favorable com
ment. Most of the boys spent the
time with admiring families or l'riend
eiiger to hear the details of training
camp life, and if theembyro officers
carried themselves with somewhat
selfconscious erectness, it was merely

due to their surroundings. Here at
the camp this carriage is rapidly be
coming fixed, and round shoulders are
being straightened as by magic.
While the service Is not off damask
linen, but instead Is from a bare but
whttely scrubbed table top, the food
supplied the rookie officers is both
abundant and good as to quality and
preparation. Skilled cooks prepare
everything in palatable and hygienic
manner, and thus far not a single kick
has been heard. The men have ample
variety and apparently the supply is
Strict Care Of Feet
Up at 5:30 o'clock every morning,
the men have made up their beds,
bathed, shaved, eaten breakfast and
thoroughly policed the building and
grounds by 7:05 o'clock, when the
drill hour comes around. From then
till 11:30 the company is given a set
ting up drill, a sharp double-time chase
across a steep little ravine, (perhaps
several times,) and then usually a
several mile hike, to probably be
finished up by an hour of close order
or manual of arm drill.
Last Friday, on returning from the
hike, the men were required to sit on
the ground and remove leggins, shoes
and stockings, while the officers care
fully looked for evidences of poor fit
ting foot-gear. Where such was found
new shoes were ordered or other re
medies prescribed. The care of the
feet of the fighting ninn of today Is
second only to the care of his diet and
general health, for a soldier that can't
walk is not only no good to the army
but a liability as well.

New Church Is Now
Open For Service

an edifice that we assemble ourselves
together this morning. This building
was erected to perpetuate ihe memory
of a man who did justly, loved mercy,
and walked humbly with his God.
About him we can say as was said of
a man in the old Testment, 'The Lord
shall count when he writeth up his
people, that this man was born in
Zion.' It is altogether fitting that a
memorial to Mr. Baldwin should take
Ihe shape of a House of Worship.
This building is an expression of de
votion. It is a hymn and prayer in
wood and stone. It is a, religious
service in itself. A house of worship
such as this makes it known to nil
who see it, that God has a people in
this place, that Christ has a church.
The mission of the modern church Is
to perpetuate the ministry of the Mas
ter on earth."
The speaker also emphasized such
lessons to be learned, as consecration
to service; and lit equipment for
service, comprising such divine at
tributes as sympathie insight, and
compassion, these being emotions
which became transmuted into ac
tions, in Christ's life.
The music was an especially fine
feature of the service. Mrs. G. K.
Tackabury rendered with rare effec
tiveness, a contralto solo, "Rock Of
Ages," and H. W. Baldwin with Mrs.
L. C. Jones were never heard to bet
ter advantage, than in the duet "Guide
Me, O Thou Great Jehovah". The
chorus choir of over forty well-blended
voices, sang under the direction of
H. Washburn Baldwin, two splendid
selections, Gounod's "Sanctus" and
Farmer's "Gloria in Excelsis" from
the Mass in B-Flat. Maui is to be
especially congratulated on the ac
quisition of an organ such as was
