Don't Imagine, when the Glenn H.

station yourself on the roof of your

manager remarked, "and they make
It a point to navigate in territory

with the aeroplane there were mis

the operatorsfound to their sorrow
that it was unwise to travel over the
tops of tall buildings, some of them
with towers and lightning rod spir

Members of Company A of Rock Island
who are attending the annual encamp
ment of the Illinois National Guard
will probably realize more real good
from this year's tour than they have
from any previous encampment, and
the same thing is true of all the guards
men at Camp Deneen. They are fac
ing the problem of taking care of
themselves under all circumstances,
for while the state is doing the best it
can in the matter of provisions, tents,
bedding, etc., many have found them
selves without part or all -of these sup
posed necessities for several days at
least, Then they had to arrange and
pitch their own tents and care for
themselves almost as tliey would were
they in a campaign In a foreign land,
and the result is that while they have
met with many hardships, they have
nevertheless gotten considerable knowl
edge and no little fun out of the exper

At Camp Lincoln, Springfield, where
the guardsmen of tue state formerly as
sembled, everything was reduced to a
system and there was rarely any con
fusion. About all the militiamen had
to hustle for was bedding, and they
knew just where they were to get that
and just where to put it. Their tents
were already pitched and were provid
ed with board floors. Compared with
Camp Deneen, Camp Lincoln was a
first class hotel. The Inhabitants in
the vicinity of Camp Lincoln knew just
what the soldiers needed and they aim
ed to supply it. For Instance, if a sol
dier who did not drink coffee could
easily buy a cup of milk from any of
a hundred people who made a business
of peddling it at mees time. At Camp
Deneen such advantages are not pre
sented, as the natives have not as yet
found that they can make a consider
able profit by catering to the soldiers.
