Out o: his small pay an Knglish soldier
has to jmy for his vegetables and any ex
tra meat he may have. Our soldiers get
more than they can eat of everything that ,
Is fumi shel. and are permitted to trade
the supilus off for anv dainties from the
commissary :.-partnient that they may
wish at govei .intent contract price. Then,
too, evtry company in the army has a
company garden that supplies it with veg
etables, and again the garden is a success
accordii.g to the efforts of the company
commntider. Then there are ways in which
a comj any makes money to supply its
mess with still greater dainties and its
reading room with literature, and often
with bi liard and pool tables.
Beyoiid keeping himself and his acon
termcnis clean, attending drills and doing
guard duty, the enlisted man has to take
his turn every three or four days doing
the woi k of a laborer about the post. This
Is the crying shame of the army today
The nu it are not enlisted us artisans nor as
laborer-,, and they should not be expected
to do such work. It is worthy of not ice
that they do the work, nevertheless, very
cheerfi.lly. Some day, when ll.e officers
have agitated the matter enou- h. all this
will lie changed, and the soldier will be ex
pected to do nothing but actual military
The soldier on the front ier has even more
amusement than the oiii -er. The writer,
once a lieutenant of cavalry, has many a
time w hen alone with a company in t he
field wished that he could sit down at the
camp fire With the men and enjoy their
Jokes and share in their conversation.
They 1 ave the opportunity of playing all
Sorts of games and the time to practice
A liOOD com pan v.
It h prolxibiu that they have more so
ciety nt a government post than they would
haw at their homes, mid they usually have
opportunities for sport in the way of hunt
ing and fishing that would be envied by
many a rich New Yorker. There are al
ways post schools for the education of the
soldier, and there lire always post libraries
that contain a suuVicnt. number of books
to keep them busy reading.
The writer served in a company of cav
alry in which three men had saved up con-
uiderably over 1,000, and almost all the
others-sums less than that, down to twenty-five
dollars. Half the company were
men who were on their second, third or
fourth enlistment. They had a billiard
table that was said to lie the best one in
Arizona, a garden that yielded a profit
from the sale of vegetables of over eighty
dollai-s a month, besides furnishing the
compiny table with every variety that
could be asked for; a drove of forty or more
hogs very valuable live stock in the far
west), chickens, a milk cow and a mule to
save t he men from the harder part of the
comp.iny work. The company fund of
ready money amounted, at times when the
writer had charge of it, to several hun
dred!- of dollars. The men had a splendidly
equipped reading room and formed
gethcr an exceptional company.
Th; result of such a state of affairs was
the (.ratifying fact that only one man had
deseited from the company in years, while
all the time there were dozens of applica
tions from men in other companies to lie
transferred to t his one whenever a vacancy
occurred in it. It is a fact that the men
had better food and a greater variety of it
than any officers at tue different posts
whe-e it was stationed while the writer
was with it, and it is doubtful whether
any men of the same class in the country
were half as comfortable and happy as
thofe same men in that cavalry company.
