about U and af tr the drill this af tei
noon every man here who wears a
uniform will be minutely Inspected
by the regular army officers to see
that nothing resembling: a steel nosed
bullet Is about. The blank ammuni
tion haB not been distributed Yet, but
will be shortly. The officers are tak
ing this precautionary measure In ad
vance. The old familiar rumor which
strikes each encampment about this
time every year that n militiaman
whose nanie Is. being kept a secret has
been found with quantities of ball
cartridges In his gun hasn't arrived
yet, but is hourly expected.
Because of Tuesday's rain and tln
storm of last night the Signal Corrs
has found It Impossible to get In
communication with the outside world
yet. It Is expected that the wireless
tower will liavo been erected before,
nightfall and messages tl'jn may bs
fcent direct to "VaBhlnj5t0n. Telephones
are being Installed In the camp today.
The reputation of the guardsmen
for orderly conduct was maintained
In Harpers Ferry laet night. Although
there were but few of them with en
ergy enough to visit the town, those
that did enturo forth. In the rain re
mained but a short time, attended an
Ice cream festival, at which cream
wado by a well-known Washington
li' nrm, and extensively advertised as-
such, was served, and then returned to
Wet Weather Not Feared.
It Is beginning to look as If the
guardsmen will spend another two weeks
In camp similar to those of six years
ago when they maneuvered at Mt.
Gretna, Pa., when It rained the greater
portion of the time. They will not suffer
the hardships of that campaign, how
ever, as this camping ground is so un
like that of the Pennsylvania Held. If It
should rain every day, the natural slope
of the ground where the tents arc
pitched and the quality of the soil
would make It Impossible for the men
to be flooded.
Barely had the guardsmen reached the
camping ground and had pitched their
tents when the first storm cloud ap
peared. There was a hurrying and
scurrying for utensils with which to
"ditch" their tents. It wasn't an hour
before each of the hundreds of circular
tents In which tho men will sleep were
Inclosed In miniature open culverts,
over which nothing less than a cloud
burst could wash.
It didn't rain, however, until long
after the last mess of tho day had been
finished, and the concert of the Second
Infantry Band had concluded. It didn't
bother the guaidsmcn the least bit, as
they had no desire to see the sights of
Harpers Ferry. The hike from their
armories to the freight sUtlon In Wash
ington wliere they entrained, the two
and a half hours on board the trains,
and then the long hike up the hill load
ing from Harpers Ferry to Camp Ofd
way, all of which was followed by the
work necessarj to the erection of u
tented city, sipped the energy of tho
men. But few of tho 1,600 or more men
now in camp heard the headquarters
bugler sound taps, as most of them
had been in slumberland before that
time. . . .
This promises to be an Ideal encamp
ment for the men. While Colonel Gar
rard and the regular army officers, as
well as the brigade staff of the militia
expect to give the guardsmen some
pointers about this little game of war
and preparing for war, which have been

A Vacation
With an Easy Mind
No matter where you go to seashore, mountain, lake
woods; or merely slip away for recreation, to the
nearby Country Club you may always be in touch
with your business affairs, for everywhere will be found
the Bell telephone and the familiar blue sign.
Travel, worry, suspense, delays are all precluded by that
word of authority or assurance which flashes along the cop
per spans, setting the mind free.
For small sums up to half a dollar or so, you can reach this
City from Colonial Beach, Blue Ridge Summit, Berkley or
Capon Springs and scores of other resorts. No place is be
yond the reach of the Bell System.

to the letter. He spent his first day
here visiting the men who constitute
his father's regiment.
For the first time In ears, tho Dis
trict National auard will spend two
Sundays In camp, which means that the
largest number of visitors the militia
men ever has entertained, will see them
at the Harpers Ferry encampment this
year. Ahead? provisions for entertain

been put under way, and a series of
jipcclal trains from Washington wilt bu
operated to Harpers Ferry, both the

Capt. George Dudley, chaplain of the
Second Tnfantry, has with him In camp
this ypar a mosquito netting which he
has used every year since the District
olnntecrs went to Cuba during the
war with Spain, and one which has as
sociations which make it Invaluable to
him it was presented to him by Clara
Barton, founder of the Amerlca'n Hed
Cross Society. To his fellow officers
he told this story today: ".Miss Barton
asked me to come over to a small Cu
ban town and officiate at the funera!
of one of her nurses. When the serv
ices were concluded she asked me if
there was anything she could give me.
As the baggage of the soldiers had mis
carried, and we had been without
equipments of any kind for a month. 1
asked for the netting, which I have
with me. That It was of exceptionally
good quality Is shown by the good con
dition In which it Is today."
An Interesting as well as Important
event from the standpoint of the men,
took place at tho close of tho day'B ex
ercises yesterday, when representatives
of the United States Government, in
the person of the regular army Inspec
tors, mustered In the officers and men
which constitute the District mllltla.
Every person who will receive pay for
services during the encampment, was
required to present himself to one of
the four Inspectors and answer to his
name, a Blmllar exercise will be given
at the conclusion of the encampment.
Assigned to the Second Infantry as
inspector, is Lieut. F. B. Eastman,
formerly of the Tenth Infantry, United
States army, but now detached. Lieu

birth, and Is rapidly making many

Despite the fact that the -day pre
ceding the one on which the guardsmen
were due In camp was a rainy one, and
that nearly all the tents which had
been erected, weie torn from their
moorings by the heavy storm, but little
Inconvenience has been caused. By
Thursday night all the shower baths
will be In working order, and the water
from the many artesian wells which
dot the large farm which Is being used
as a maneuvering camp, will again be
clear, and can be used for drinking
purposes. The water on the Cavalier
farm, by the way, has been analyzed
nnd pronounced perfectly pure by the
Government chemists. The guardsmen
will be in no danger at contracting dis
eases from this supply.
During the absence of General Har
ries Col. Charles H. Ourand, command

senior officer of the brigade, Is In com

ST. LOUIS. MO. "At about
eleven years of age my face
was covered with a mass of
scabby tores, awful to look

the intense itching, and then after
scratching, the sores would pain
me juit something awful. 'My
mother got salves and soaps to
use, bnt all to no purpose. A
friend of mine who was Physical
Director at the T. M. C. A. at that
time, told me it was a bad ess,

gave me some Reslnol Soap and
