in tlie natives of the country being
traversed This aire, of course, is only
ttemendous by comparison with the

. rm to be peculiarly attractive to the
ii .tires, and when one of them is pass
ing along a road, it is sure to have
a 'gallery" made up of every native,
voung and old, gathered In from the
o Towns occupied.
T'n to this time, the commander of
the expedition has refrained from oc
cupying anv of th towns in the tern
tor through which his forces have
marched There may be other foasons
for this seeming tribute to the feelings
of the inhabitants of the country, but
the reason aaslgned Is that camps In
the open and as far remoted from town
an possible are more conducive to the
health of the men composing the var
ious commands. Thus far. the army
has been fortunate In that it has
traveled through a well watered por
tion of Mexico and has been able to
make caftnp everv day on the banks of
a flowing stream The effect of this

there has been little need for either

earlier In the month. The flrat day
or two out, a few "dough boys" suf
fered from blistered feet, but the new
"tpe treatment" cured the blisters
and they now hike along as well as
their tougher footed fellows in the In
fantry. Horses Looked After.
For the horses and mules In the
cavalry and transport trains, veterinar
ians, horseshoers and saddler are on,
hand to see that every possible ailment
is promptly looked after. There are
no sore backs, blistered shoulders npr
crippled legs to be found, which is in
marked distinction to what has alwavs
been found by correspondents who have
traveled with other armies in Mexico.
The trip from the border to this camp
has had the effect of hardening men
and animals to the point where they
should be ready for any service which
mav be asked of them from this time

An Army Of Guides.
The expedition is accompanied by an
armv of guides and scouts, for the most
part oldtime cow punchera, who have
ridden th ranges of this section of
Mexico ' and are familiar with every
foot of the ground from the border to
the southern end of the Bablcora plain
and farther south. They wear the high
heeled boots, big spurs, brightly col
ored neckerchiefs and gaudy shirts of
ten affected by the cowboys of South
western United States and give a touch
of color to the somberly arrayed
troopers and Infantrymen of the main
body of the expeditionary column.
The guides lead the way. riding well
in advance of the main column, while
the scouts ride the ridges on either
flank, guarding against surprise by any
body of the enemy which might have
the temerity to attempt to make a
dash with a view toward putting a
wagon train out of business
