Story of Adventure as Told by One
of Their Number.
The Boy Scouts decided to take a trip,
so we loaded up a light wagon with pro
visions, tents and bedding and started
at 3 o'clock Friday afternoon.
We proceeded rapidly until met by a
quantity of rain, which came down in
torrents and soaked all of us. We
struggled on until we struck a deserted
house, in which we luckily found a stove.
We unpacked our food and bedding, and
after cooking supper made the beds, di
vested oureelves of drenched clothing
and turned in.
At 1:30, however, we went to sleep and
at 4:30 most of ue were up. We marched
on to Wilcox, played a game of ball
and, returning to camp, cooked dinner.
We then marched into Colfax, distant
eight miles, and dispersed quietly to take
a rest. Okvili.e Williams,
