WHY WE'RE GOING. j
It's not because we think elsewhere'
The skies are bluer than our own, J
Or that we think more sweetly fair j
Must be the land that is unknown, j
It's not that we're unhappy here, j
For here is all that makes life gay j
But still we feel that every year
It's up to us to go away. j
Tv are not wandering because
We've wearied of our little home,
To seek from strangers loud ap
plause Is not the reason that we roam,
VTe do not feel that east or west
We'll find more pleasures than we
Bight here about our little nest;
Yet once a year somewhere we go.
We don't believe the August moon
Is brighter miles and miles away
Or that we'll find a greater boon
That could be had If we should
We've all that we desire right here.
Yes, all that elsewhere could be
Tat once a year we disappear
Recauee It seems to be the fad.

Eleven members of the newly or
ganized Rock Island Motor Cycle club
left here yesterday morning at S
o'clock and went to Muscatine, the
trip being the first one undertaken by
the club. Before the return, the par
ty was joined by two additional cyc
lists. No attempt was made to make
a record between here and the Pearl
city and considerable time was spent
on the way during which it was re
ported numerous raids were made up
on apple orchards along the route. The
raids. however were not severe
enough to incense any of the owners.
' ONE HAS AN ACCIDENT.
R. G. Purington, 620 Thirty-ninth
street, a member of the club who Join

an accident that seriously damaged
his machine and in which he himself
had a very narrow escape. He was
just riding out of a garage and was
glancing down at his engine wheu
without warning of any sort, a big aut
omobile turned the corner and run him
down. Fortunately he escaped with a
few slight bruises and scratches but
his machine was hurled to the ground
and the wheels of the ponderous auto
passed over the center of the motor
cycle. It was damaged beyond immed
iate repair and was shipped back to
tuiS city by boat.

Company A, together with the other
companies making up the 6th infan

at 12:30 Saturday noon, after marching
a mile and a half from the depot. The

The members of the company were
certainly hungry and they made won
drous inroads into the meal which was
set before them.
CAMP AT RrtER.
The camp is located in Rock River
Assembly park, about a mile and a
half north of town, and is a beautiful
place. It is by all odds the nicest
camping grounds the company has
ever had. It is surrounded by groves
of trees, and less than a quarter of a
mile away lies Rock river. The land
is low, and they say that during the
heavy rains a week or more ago there
was from three to eight inches of wa
ter in places, but at present they are ;
in excellent shape and nice and dry. j
The parade grounds are perfectly ;
level and covered with short, soft I
grass. One of the nice things about ,
the camp is the total absence of dust. '
Although there were no drills sched- j
uled for Saturday afternoon, the boys j
were kepi busy cleaning up the com- j
pany street and getting their tf nts in ,

ment are already forming ball teams,
seme of them being in shape to play ;

Thus far during our stay nothing un- !
usual has happened, although the :

the initiation which the older members j
of the regiment are arranging for them.
