Colonel Griggshy, arrived from the
lslacU Hills region of South Dakota un
der command of Major R. S. French.
The three troops number 225 men.
Complaints of the Soldiers.
The various commands are beginning
military lire In earnest. All the regiments
that are permanently encamped were
given regimental drill yesterday and
this will be continued from day to day.
Reports of disaffection among the Mis
souri troops arise from dissatisfaction
growing out of an Inadequate watr
supply, but this will be remedied, as the
completion of ipipe lines will afford
abundance of water to the commands.
The trocps also complain of insufficient
equipment, having received no uniforms
or arms from the government since be
ing mustered into the federal service.
The various commands were served
with supplies of fresh meat yesterday
for the first time since the arrival of
the volunteers at the park, and ar
rangements have been made by the
commlssionary department to supply
fresh meats regularly.
Indulged in Cold Water Baths.
Yesterday two miles of pipe was laid
In the park and several of the com
mands were last night enjoying the
luxuries of cold water baths. By to
night the two pipe lines will be com
pleted to the extreme limits of the park
and the problem of an adequate water
supply for the big volunteer army will
have ben solved. The government has
authorized General Boynton, president
of the Chickamauga park commission,
to expend $10,000 If necessary in the
erection of a permanent water works
system at the park. The Sixty-Ninth
New York, First Arkansns and Fifth
Missouri regiments arrived last night.
Sanitary Condition of Camp Alger.
Washington, May 27. Camp Alger is
rapidly being put in excellent sanitary
condition. Colonel Girard, chief sur
geon, has been unremitting in his at
tention to the health of the men' since
he assumed control, and his work has
produced good results. Colonel Girard
held a conference at headquarters yes
terday with the several brigade sur
geons. Since Wednesday each one had
gone over carefully the ground under
his direction. The opinion was unani
mous that the hospital corps was as
well organized as any other department
of the camp, and that the sanitary con
dition cf Camp Alger was as good as !
that of eny regular army field camp in
the country. Colonel Girard was par
ticularly emphatic in his injunctions
upon the surgeons to prevent the
Fpread of contagious diseases, such as
rromlses First Class l'.inlpment.
Commenting upon the work already
accomplished Col. Girard said yesterday
afternoon: "Within a few days we will
have our corps as well equipped as any
In the service. We will have accurate
records of all the men In the camp; we
will have every man at all 111 under
the care of capable, competent hospital
authorities. We have not yet as many
ambulances as we ought to have, per
haps, but we have as many as are ab
solutely necessary. Within a day or
two our division hospitals will be set up
and then we can care easily for every
body." COLORED RKOIMKXT OFFERED.

exhausted all available funds in
its possession at present for the equip
ment of troops, and unless the federal
government does something in the way
of furnishing equipment additional Wis
consin volunteers will not be ready to
go to the front for some time. The new-
state volunteers will be concentrated at

Albuquerque, N. M., May 27. Under
Sheriff Frank Vigil, Deputy Sheriff Dan
Bustamente and an Indian trailer were
killed Wednesday by the two despera
does who held up the Santa Fe passen

with a number of Pueblo Indian trail

leading at Breakfast.
Bcatliug at breakfast is fatal to socia
bility, la breakfasting alone it is per
missible, but not in company. Leigh
Hunt wrote in The Ind icatorf "When
we lived aloue, we could not htlp read
ing at meals, and it is certainly a deli
cious thing to resume an entertaining
book at a particularly interesting pas
sage with a hut cup of tea at one's el
bow and a piece of battered toast in
one's baud. The first look at tbe page,
accompanied by a coexistent bite of the
toast, comes nuder the bead of intensi
ties." A book at breakfast is no compli
ment to tho cook, bnt a newspaper ia
an iusalt. Un tbe other hand, a news
paper at breakfast is a benefit to the
doctor, for it is when one is put off
one's guard by tho struggle with the
folds and the search for items of inter
est that tbe way is made easy for the
approach of dyspepsia.
In the old days of The Spectator and
Tattler, when papers wore of a reason
able size and reposeful to boot, they did
no narm. row well, now tbe largest
circnlation in the world may produce
the poorest digestion. It has been re
marked (by a collector) that the only
literature suitable at breakfast is book
sellers' catalogues, bnt since catalogues
lead always to telegrams or envy this is
doubtful. The line should probably be
drawn at private letters. Cornhill Mag
