ARGUS. . - '
Nicholas BisdorfV 3J0 Second street,
has received the following letter, from
hi brother Bert, who is with Uncle
Sam's regulars infth'e' Philippines:.,
Camp Keithley; .Mindanao, P.
March.. 29, 1908. Dear . brother and
sister: Well, it seems a long time
since I heard of ybii. so I thought I
would write just to let yon know I
am well at present and., hope- , you
folks are the same.' There is no tell
ing when I may not, bo able to write
because some Moro may cut my head
off with his bolo when I ain't looking.
but I will try and not let him. This
is a very hostile country and the
Moras are uncivilized and wild as a
deer. The . only clothing they wear
Is a little hemp rag tied, around their
bodies. They will kill a soldier every
chance they get, to get his gun.
We had a small battle last Febru
ary, on the 15th and ICth, I. never
will forget. There were "about 1,000
Moros and only - 200 of us, but we
made them pull for the tall grass.
This trouble started on account of
the Moros , killing two soldiers one
night and taking their guns. We had
a hard hike to catch them. We hiked
all one night and the next day Ull
about 2 o'clock through mud and
water up to our knees and hips. That
was a steady march- without stopping

to get a bite to eat. We had to do
It in order to keep track of the Moros.
. Stf at lust we landed at the foot
of a mountain and camjkd by a small
stream. We just got our coffee boiled
in our tincups and commenced io eat
whvn the bullets .began flying as thick
as hair on a dog's back; Now say, I
thought my time, would come any
moment, but as luck would have it, I
never got a scratch. We were not
long -aboyt returning the compliments.
The way we shot volleys into that
bunch of Moros was awful. We
killed about 47 of them in about 20
minutes and the rest skiddooed. . We
wanted to let them know that 'we
were not bluffed out so we camped
right close there that night and those
Moros ciNno 'sneaking around our
camp all night. We killed several
that way and each Moro had a ' big
wicked looking bolo. I have got two
bolos I got off of dead Moros. The
next day we started in to burning
every' bamboo shack we came to. We
burned about 50 or, more and that
night we came back to our camp
without losing a' man and only one
wounded, a bullet hitting him on the
foot and he lost his big toe. We are
going out again before long "and get
some more of those Moros. . That is
the "only sport we . have over -here in
these mountains.- We are. 20 miles!
frcni the" coast and 2,700 feet above
sea level, and.lt rains up here every
day. We go out In the rain Just the
same as we would in sunshine. ,
There are lots of wild . deer and
wild hogs over here. We get our deer
and hog meat whenever we. want .It,
but we get tired of iL It don't, taste
as good as the good old pork chops
we. got In the good old United States.
-There Is lots of fruit over here and
it Tgrows .the- year, around, and 'the
mountains are full of monkeys. We
are not allowed to "eat any fruit un
lets it is cooked and we have to boil
flll-oiip drinking water on account .of
the cholera. The cholera ever both
ers us. 'It runs amongst the natives
and kills them by the hundreds. .To
-t it means certain death sure.
Well,- Nick, I have been, company ar
tificer for the last ight months, so
now ' I am going to be promoted. I
will be made corporal about tha first
of June," 1908. That's going some.
We will leave here about the latter
part of 190!) and I think we will go
to New York from here, so I will go
almost around the earlh. I am ll.Ooo
miles from homo now. I would not
have to go much farthor and I could
step off of t lie earth. I am ever yonr
