It will bo only 11 loenl evidence of what
Is likely to bo tho most Important, bo
cause most pwetlenl, military prnctlco
ever held In this country. One million

"Tho enemy hna landed n forco ot

This will set tho ofllcors In com

Altogether thoro will bo about 20.000

learn from tho work, said;
"I nni tho teacher, so you could
hardly expect that I would learn any

I hope to got bettor acquainted with

There Is moro hard work being done
