'Although hostilities are not to com

However, the Reds have been mask
ing their movements bo as to keep the
Blues In partial Ignorance of tlwlr
whereabouts. In theory th?y have cut
off communication between New York
and Southern points.
The commissary department produced
the first big question In the mammoth
war game. The problem of feeding the
10,000 troops of the Reds and Blues wan
a serious one. The following amounts

All these articles were purchased in

missary of tho Eastern division. But
the horses and mules have to be fed
and the fires of the cooks must be kept
ablaze, a duty which fell upon the
shoulders of Col. J. B. Bellinger, chief
quartermaster of the eastern division.
He has purchased and shipped to the
front from New York 600,000 pounds of
hay. 500,000 pounds of oats and 400 cords
