J FROM PAUL TWYMAN.
On the 10th of thia month I waa
Ira naf erred to ( amp Meadn, Md
and hav been on the s;o ever since I
got to thnt place. I was mode a cor
poral day before yesterday and the
recommendation for a aergeantry haa
been sent to headquarters and in
all probability will be out the first of
the week. Hava been doing the Com
pany Clerk's work ever since I csme
to this place and believe me it la
some Job. Being assigned to the de
pot brigade, which receive all tha en
listed and drafted men, fives them
their first Instructions, mskes out all
the initial paper and then transfers
them to the real work, I hava almost
m roe work than is good for m.
Three nighta out of last week I work
ed until after three o'clock and then
waa back on the Job at oevan the
next morning. W hav just cleaned
out the lunrh of men who cam Into
ramp the first of June and now are
tilling up acaln.
You should some of th name
the men have. They all com from
Rhode Island, New York, Pennsyl
vania and ether date that r full
of foreijtnera and we get that class
a 1 -. i . ... ,i
S!t mis ramp. t'l rnursv mere are
- . :
iiiiiniti a lew nmrnian names anq
men but the percentile is on ths
foreigners and half of them cannot
writ their name and their cpeech
is so broken that it b) very difficult
to understand them. t
Camp Meade is a very pretty plat
It i located about 20 or 30 mile
from Washington and la easily gotten
to by electric trolley. The country
awfully sandy and the first night I
waa there wo had an awful . wind
storm and tha next morning I waa
literally covered with sand. Th cli-
mat ta hot a th mischief in th dsy
time and at night it cools off unti'
yon welcom th blanket before morn
ing. Nearly every branch of the ser
vice is represented here and there is
quite bit of rivslry in athletics
The 154th D.B. to wihch I am attach
ed holds th championship in base
ball and boxing. Until bat week we
had Wedneaday afternoon for the
ball games, bat on account of the
number of men coming In nnd the
urgent need ot fast training they
hav limited th athletics to Satur
day. Saturday and Sunday ars the
soldiers' rest days. There to nothing
to do on these dsy but to clean op
your quarters and stand the in
apeetion. Then those who are out ol
quarantine (two typhoid shot and
vaccination) may hav passes to th
city lesving eauip at 10 a. m. Satur
day and returning by 11 p. m. Sun
day night. Just back of our offic Is
the range for machine gun practice
and th gun are popping all day
long. ' Over a couple of block the
artillery la at work and th boom of
th big field pieces makes on think
that ha is at least somewhere In thebay mar. Reward for information,
line. Ther is also anofficsrs' train-, w m Ri,m Phona ltl-3. 98tf
ing camp located In Camp Meade
Th men are picked from the ranks
and tha non-coma of th company in
camp and given th necessary train
ing to equip them for officers. It ia
very intersesting to watch the man
euvers that the West Pointers put
ths prospective officers through.
Ws have a big liberty thestre and
hav soma very good show. Th Y
M. C. A. furnishes entertainment
along with the Y. M. II. A. and the
K. C. In fact Unci Sam haa not
left much for the comfort and en
tertainment of tha aoldior undone.
Of course it is not like the home by
any means becsuse there la a set
Urn in which the things may be en
joyed but when that Um cornea ev
erybody to ready for.it and haa at
much fun aa could possibly be had.
It seems funny to ss om of thoss
a. l 1 t a . ....
oaia-neaasq ana mkiill aged men
romp and cut up lik a lot of school
When the now men com Into the
camp they certainly do get a good
panning. Th old men all of them
hand them something lik this. "Aw!
just wsit till you get thst shot Come
on now kid nnd csn that strsw lid
this is no place for duk. You
will have to come out from undet
that hat Did Mama say she'd miss
Z. ,,T. k'L "wl
Sav bovl did vou kk. her -nul.hv
lB you leftT"
Very fsw of tha men are discon
tented. W have had several C. O.
(conscientious objectors) but they
are soon put to work In the camp
at aoma kind of labor. Th moat
of them are rarin to go. Ono man
almost cried when he waa transferred
to a part of the service that does not
enter into much of the fighting. He
was an Lnglishmaa and has a brother
or two In th English forces.
I certainly do enjoy th Kentuck
lan when it comes. It is like ons
great big letter from home. Of course
1 hear from a aum5r af tt folk
and get a lot of th awa but I get
