MAKES HIS REPORT
Interesting Account of Experience ut
Maneuvers on the Mexican Herder.
Capt. W. R. Itichey. Jr., who return
ed several weeks ago from the Mexi
; can frontier, where he participated in
' the maneuvers, lias filed his report
\ with Adjutant General Moore. The re
port is a very interest inn account of
his trip, paying most attention, howev
er, to the military phase. The follow
ing is the report in full:
Hdqrs. Co. "!)?? 1st., Infantry, X. ('.. S.C.
Laurens, S. C. July 1st., 1911.
To the Adjutant General,
State of South Carolina,
Columbia, S. C,
I have the honor to submit the fol
lowing report, In He Special Order No.
28, ordering me to report to the Com
manding General, .Maneuver Division,
San Antonio, Texas, on June 12th..
1911, for purpose of observation and
I joined the party leaving Columbia,
S. C, at 7: 10 A. M., on June 10th, 1911,
at Spartanburg, S. C, from whence we
proceeded en route to San Antonio,
Texas, arriving at the bitter place on
schedule time and without accident.
a short time after arrival I reported
in person to the Division Adjutant,
and was immediately attached, by or
der of the Commanding General, to
the Commanding Olllcer of Company
"11" 11th., Infantry.
After a very pleasant conversation
with the Commanding Officer of the
11th., Infantry, in which the fact that
I was there for business and work,
and not pleasure, (afterwards demon
strated) was very foreeably impressed
upon me, l reported to the Command
ing Olllcer of Company "B", who gave
in?? a very cordial welcome, and who
afterwards proved to he my ideal of
an Army Officer: always responsive
I to duty, pleasant of manner and con
siderate toward ins men.
The officers attached to the 11th.,
infantry, who all belonged to the 1st.
S. C. Regiment, were considered for
tunate, for the reason that they were
required to he present at all forma
tions. including reveille ;it <; o'clock A.
M., drill at 7 A. M.. officers meeting
at 12 M.. school of instruction at 1.30
P. M. The drills consisted of from
two to three hours work in close or
der, extended order and practice
marches. The instruction schools last
ed from one and one-half to two and
one-half hours every day ami cousil i
ed of lectures, tactical inarches, tac
tical rides etc So if the ..mount < [
duty imposed on we officers attached
to the 11th., Infantry carries with it
the word fortunate, you may so ecn
Blder us. However it la n muttor of
dlff< rence of opinion.
It may be well to say here, that Oil
account of the wide Hold of observa
tion, the varied branches of the ser
vice instructed in and the personnel
I of the officers, I would, perhaps, be
i aide to write a hook, hut must he I
j brief and confine myself to those fen
j ttires most impressive.
The most impressive and by far the
[ most wonderful feature of the whole
It-amp. is its sanitary condition. Wh -n
you think of a camp, four months old,
of upwards of twenty live thousand
men, with ;i record of only ono case
of typhoid lever, it is hardly short
of miraculous. Yet ihis is n facl as
told in a lecture by (he head surgeon
of the lit)),, liifai.try. The prcrcquis
He of all camps is the preservation *>?
the occupant i' health, and the high
standard oi health in li.i- camp Is
brought nboui by the exclusion of
Hies, which are the principal carri
eis of disease in this particular local
ity, there ballig very few IllOSqultOS.
The absence of the ily Is due to an ef
fective, et apparently ? r?de and ex
perimental method of destroying thbl
principal attraction of Hies viz: oxe
crotn, fecos and garbage. This is de
stroyed,by simply diguing ditches and
trenches, lining same with rock, Into
which all matters are deposited and
afterwards burned: this method is
very simple in construction and per
fect for purpose.

Quite a unique feature of tlx* Divi
sion Camp is its bakery. This bakery
Which has tiie appearance of a small
mud house village, turns oul enough
bread daily lo feed the whole division,
and I was informed by the olllcer in
charge, thai Its capacity could bo
doubled at. short notice.
The Commanding Officor of the com
pany I was attach.id to made it mar
compulsory upon me to alternate with
him daily in commanding his company.
I was afterwards Informed that quite
a number of other army officers made
use of their shadows (as we were- term
ed) in the same ; inner. This coupled
with the fact that all National Guard
Officers questioned by inc. were cor
dially received, courteously treated,
and given due and proper attention by
the different Officers, tends to dispel
the idea that we were sot wanted in
enmp. My experience taught me that
the old repulsive feeling the Regular
had for the Militiaman, has vanished
and that we stand in closer commu
nion with the Regulars, he realizing
our worth and we realizing his worth.
I say in conclusion that the period
spent in the camp was one solid, un
interrupted two weeks of valuable in
struction and Interesting observation,
and I feel that my ability to command

Greensboro Life Does!
Walhalla, S. C, April 19, 1910.
Greensboro Life Insurance Co.,
Greensboro, N. C,
Your General Agent, Mr. D. W. Cochrane,
has this day handed me your check for Five
Hundred Dollars, being the first annual instalment
of disability claim under Policy No. 7961, which
amount I will receive every year during total dis
ability until I have received the face of the Policy,
Five Thousand Dollars.
I want to thank you for your promptness in
settling this claim. I received your check just
one week from the day satisfactory proofs of dis
ability were furnished you.
What I particularly like about this contract
is, it not only turnishes tne same protection that
other insurance policies do in case of death, but
gives the additional advantage of protection to the
insured while living, in case of total disability, as
has been illustrated in my case.
Being an old insurance man, the first time I
had your policy explained to me, I applied at once
for Five Thousand Dollars, believing that it filled
a long-felt want in the insurance world: namely, a
policy which would protect one's family in case of
death, and would also protect oneself and family
in case from any bodily disease he becomes totally
unable to make a support for them.
I am more than ever convinced that the
Greensboro Life is one of the fairest, strongest
and best insurance companies doing business in
GEO. A. HARRISON.
