Last Sunday afternoon after the
East Carroll Guards had been formed
in line in front of their armory and
marched up to the (Guenard drug
store, the order was given to hault,
right face, parade rest. Private Faib
erree stepped inside of the store and
brought out a magnificent sword,
which he handed to 2nd Lieutenant
Yancey Bell, and in a few brief re
marks presented it to their Captain,
R. N. Rae, on behalf of the company.
The Captain was taken by surprise,
but responded in a neat little talk.
The sword is a magnificeLt piece of
workmanship. and has the inscription
engraved on it, -'Presented to Captain
R. N. Rae from the East Carroll
Guards." If the cadets take as mucl
interest in their company as Captain
Rae has shown, it will not be lonig
until they will become efricient in drill.
The b,oys should remember that he
comes a long ways to be with them on
drill day and as many as possible
ought to be on hand to give him all
the encouragement possible. This is
the only way the company anu be
kept up. We understand their uni
forms will arrive next week.
