THREE BOATS FROM ST. LOUIS.
Privates Start a Boisterous Imi
tation of a Hull Fight and
Land in the Guard
bouse. BY A STAFF CORRESPONDENT.
Camp Wells. Montesano Park, July R.
This" was "at home" day nt Camp Wells.
It being Sunday, the weather fine and
three boats having come down from St.
Louis, hundreds of St. Louis ritlzcns were
enabled to visit the jiost.
Many brought lunches, arriving In tlm
for guard mount in the morning. Joining
their friends or relatives, they, too, spent
the day in camp. In the spacious officers"
quarters or among the privates.
It was a perfect day. The tents were
white as snow and shone in the sun's
glare. Here and there, shade trees cast
cool shadows. In these could the citizen
soldier)" and the visitors group themselves,
be comfortable and enjoy an outing.
Under the dense shadow of a white oak.
Immediately In front of the Colonel's head
quarters, a part) cf viMtors and offlcTS
were gathered at all times through the day
after 11 a. m. Comfortable canvas reclin
ing chairs were provided and in the the
ladi and gentlemen from town rested, in
a position to look on the one hand at Camp
Wells and the jarade ground outspreading
brfore them, and on the other hand to the
south at a perspective of hills, valleys and
fields, a view Inspiring and exhilarating.
Only one little thing caus-ed discomfort,
and the sufferers were all not military
persons. Before headquarters a sentry
paced up and down hour after hour. For
him there was no escape from the heavy
musket on his shoulder nor relief from the
broiling sun. Sympathy caut-ed the sensa
tion of discomfort, but It was explained
that the sentry has his chance to lecorao
an officer and be free to sit in an easy
chair. Every officer in the regiment has
served as private.
Colonel Sinclair and all the officers of the
camp are glad to entertain St. Louis visi
tors, as it Is largely for them that the regi
ment exists. Especially to an those who
have aided the organization, whether by
furthering this encampment or in other
ways, an Invitation is extended to come to
the post and view the soldiery. Guard
mount and dress parade, the latter of which
takes place in the evening at 6:45 o'clock,
are well worth seeing.
PRIVATES AXD POLICE IX
CLASH AT FAV1LIOX.
A clash between privates of the regiment
and private police In the pavilion nt Monte-
sano disturbed the quiet of the afternoon.
Serious trouble threatened for a moment,
but was averted by Captain Ebbs, who was
near and compelled the militiamen to de
sist, ordering several of them to the guard
house. Nobody was injured. There was a
patient later in the day. a negro, who
was shot In the lec at Klmmswick.
By now the offlcers are beginning to feel
that in the field their men could be soldiers
among soldiers. In matters of regimental
and battalion formations their appearaneo
has greatly Improved, and accuracy Is
rnucli more closely approached. Upon the
first day here and yesterday some criticism
as to the details of guard mount and dress
parade ws Justifiable. To-day the new
guard for the day was installed In a man
ner satisfactory to Colonel C D. Comfort,
formerly commander of this regiment and
until lately a regular army Captain. Dress
parade in the evening showed a similar im
provement. To-day. Sunday, some few among the
members of the regiment, might perhaps
take cold, as they have time to waste. Not
so en other days. There is work enough to
do to kep everybody busy, nnd even to-da
it was necessary o undertake the arduous
and prosy task of trer.ch-digglng. Colonel
Sinclair did not feel like arbitrary order
ing a detail for this work on Sunday, and
himself, with Major L. 51. Rumsey nnd
Captain and Acting 5iaJor O'Keefe assist
ing, did the greater part of it. The dig
ging was essential to the construction of
targets on the rifle range. This range is
now ready and practice will begin there to
morrow. MOCK BULL FIGHT LAXDS
MEN IX GlAItnilOLSE.
Like yesterday, camp life among the men
developed amusing incidents. Another mock
trial was carried out by Company E. Pri
vates Sandford and Cahtll were charged
with refusing to steal "everything they
could lay hands on." Private Johnson was
the Judg". and upon their conviction sen
tenced the prisoners to toss a donkey in a
blanket, a feat hitherto not accomplished.
Some camp geniuses suggested a bull
fight In the course of the afternoon. Two
young heifers, innocent animals enough,
were the only available "bulls." A squad
"fixed bayonets" and charged. The "mata
dors" were v'ctorlous The heifers lied
Ignomlnlouslv. but Colonel Sinclair saw the
performance and the would-be bull slayers
jye now In the guard hou-e.
In officers' row Captains Thomas O'Keefe
and Captain Hlnton have been furnishing
amusement for all. "Cap" O'Keefe corner
from "Old Olrland." ns h'.s accent plainly
Indicates. He served for several years in
the English Royal Engineers and knows
soldiering under all conditions. What is
more to the point at present, he knows
many good stories and tells them as only
an Irishman can.
Captain Hlnton Is the regimental "Grand
pa." wl'o nevertheless Is as much of a
soldier as the rest of them. Last night
Captain Hlnton had an experience at
Klmmswick. which he retailed, with em
bellishments doubtless, at mess this morn
ing. Klmmswick's negroes, of whom there
are many, are much impressed by the num
tier of military men about. One of these
negroes, well along in years, tco, respect
fully npproachid trp Captain and queried:
"Are you a Sarjent. ah"
"No. I'm a Brigadier lit; rral." replied
Hlnton with dignity.
"Huh!" exclaimed the negro; "a Sarjent
ain't nowhere 'long side o' you. Won't you
hab a drink wld me?"
Several former officers In the regiment
were at the camp to-day, besides Colonel
Compfort. Captain Clllt Allen wns at
headquarters In the morning, also Captain
G. F. A. Brueggeman. Lieutenant T. V.
Mills, now an officer, but who was unable
to attend the encampment, paid a visit
with his fiancee. Miss Dollle Holmes. All
of the above party took dinner with Colonel
Sinclair and the staff offlcers.
Mr. and Mm William Banden, Miss Ban
den, Mies Wallace and 5Irs. Ed Weather
wax, all of Harrlson.-IIIe. III., visited Cap
tain O'Keefe. Mr. and Mrs. Theodore
5Ieyer, the former of whom is a member
of the Meyer Bros. Drug Company, were
here this morning and also Miss Olivia
Meyer, their daughter.
Lieutenant Ellsha 5Iorgan entertained
friends, among whom were E. W Bernard
and Misses Agnes,5lay and 5Iargaret Harris.
The father of Color Sergeant Robert Grace
Ylrfted his son In the hospital. 5Ilsses

the many who were here.

"Xow let me tell you why I did this. I
went to Chicago onf day to look over a hos
pital which had aoked me for help, on the
ground that they were doing much charity
work. I fouixl tlial the charity imtienls
had an average stay In th hospital of thir
teen days and two Itourc. Later I vfolted
the Sister of Mercy Hospital In Dubuque,
where th charity iatleitts were ihl for
by the city. I found th-re that, the charity
latlnts had an average i:ay of over live
weeks. On a closer inquiry in Chicago I
learned that the hick r were huatltil
alout from one borpltal to another, and
everywhere were turned out as soon as pos
lble. and otten long before thy were well.
I wanted the hospital to hnvtt an Incentive
far keeping tin- lour as long as they were
tfxi :4ck to help thrzneives.
"Then, again. I found uften that there
were men hJmI women uho preferred to die
outside in the abjecleat poverty rather than
f-l their Ipenlcnce on charity. In pro
viding that fund it was jKILIe for the nos
;ltal jeople to make them feel that they
m-re Hctuntly conferring :v favor on the ln--stituthm
in eominc there. Why? IScaua
it would Kt r.o money unless It earned it.
So theH ittmr fellows were made to feel
good about it. awl were correspondingly
