For tho first two weeks they were here they could hardly "Walt for night fall to como so they could hurry to tho bright lights of Houston street, which Is San Antonio's Broadway. Thoy lived high while their funds lasted, but from now until payday they will be compelled to stay In camp or walk five miles to tho city. Most of thorn are unwilling to take the atroll. since they have no money to spend after walking the long distance. Camp Wilson at night Is one of the most Interesting places to which the District boys have ever been assigned. For soveral hours after "Retreat." or tho evening roll call, the camp of 80.000 men seethes with activity and Is n bedlam of noise, the soldiers rending tho air with shouts of rejoicing that tho day's work Is d.ono. About 9 o'clock the militiamen become more quiet and o from tent to tent with lanterns In their hands paying visits plans for the coming day. visits or making Tattoo at 9:30. At 9:80 "Tattoo," a long drawn out, soothing bugle call, la blown to notify the more boisterous soldiers that they must be quiet and, allow tho other militiamen to retire In peace. A very large percentage of tho District sol diers "turn In" at "Tattoo." while a number of habitual guard runners atlll practice their profession. Mess sergeants, cooks, and assistant moss sergeants retire at "Tattoo," aa they aro required to arise at 3:S0 a. m. to preporo breakfast for the hungry hordes. The first note 'of "Call to Quarters" Is wafted over the camp at 10:16 o'clock. As one bugler finishes the rhythmic call another takes It up. For ten or fifteen minutes tho bugle's last can bo neara, the strains being echoed and re-echoed ovor the broad, level expanse some moments after- tho last musician con cludes. . There aro more than 100 organisa tions at Camp Wilson, nnd each of them has Its bugler, who sounds all the calls during tho day and night. Immediately after "Call to Quarters the rumble of modulated conversation can be heard as the soldiers swarm to their tents from the Y. M. C.

Tho AIR BATTLE THRILLER SEEN BY SOLDIERS District Men at Camp Wilson Witness Struggle Between Birds and Butterflies. By Staff Correspondent. CAMP WILSON, SAN ANTONIO, OcU ; 28 (by mall). Many thrilling aerliW battles have been witnessed by the District guardsmen nt Camp Wilson. The combatants have been crow black birds and Monarch red butterflies. The blackbirds have come out victorious tn all the struggles. San Antonio Is on the direct migra tory route taken by birds traveling from the North to the South for the cold weather. The day the militiamen arrived here thoy found swarms of birds on the ground. When they arose and flew away thoy formed a black cloud almost a quarter of a mile In length and a hundred feet high. Several days later the big red but terflies, which closely resemble birds at a distance, made tholr appearance. The blackbirds, evidently mistaking the butterflies for some of their kin, swarmed around them. Upon discov ering their mistake, the blackbirds began to make war on the butterflies, with the result that the latter ranka were Badly thinned. The red butterflies are said to mi grate like birds. There are only a few varieties which migrate and the members of the red family are said to bo the most consistent and exten sive travelers. Dig Demand for Ice Cream. San Antonio Ice cream dealers are making a mint of money out of Camp Wilson. Every Sunday they deliver moro than 6Q.0 gallons of ice cream to the various organisations. The District militiamen consume about 160 gallons. This refreshment Is serv ed on one or more days during the week. The soldiers "chin In" to purchase tho Ico cream. When the company funds aro running short the dealers extend credit until pay day. Practically all the merchants in San Antonio allow the mess sergeants credit at their stores when it is re quested, for the soldiers remember their business debts. As for remem bering the friends who "let them out for a couple of bucks," well, a fellow cannot always be taxing his mind with such small matters. To Address Hero Club.

"Since taking Dreco I feel fine," said Miss 3. Ranke, of 2039 WUkens Ave.. Baltimore, recently. "I suffered with stomach trouble In Its worst form for years," she con tinued. "I was unable to eat any solid food at all on account of the weak con dition of my stomach. Even the lightest of things disagreed with me, and after eating I would feel like a big lump had lodged In my chest, and nothing I could do would remove It. I would have awful attacks of Indigestion, and It seemed like I could not live through one of these spells. Gai would gather about my heart and I would have smothering spells and could hardly breathe. Then my nerves would give away, my mus cles would draw up, and I would have a general collapse. I waa so ner vous I could not bear the least unusual noise, and couldn't get any rest or sound sleep at all. I was so weak from loss or ziesn strengui uie least exer tion would exhaust me completely, ahd when I wasn't down In bed I was too weak to proporly ace after my house hold duties. I had tried ao long and used so many different medlclnos with out getting any real benefits, I had about despaired of getting anything that would help me. "It certainly was a lucky day for mo when I bought Dreco. I began feeling Detter ngnt irom tno start, and since taking three bottles of the medicine I haven't a symptom of my troubles. I can eat most anything I want now and ail I eat agrees with me. Those awful attacks of acuto Indigestion have stoo ped, and I have no more smothering spells or shortness of breath. I am not nervous now and can stand any kind of noise and my sleep and rest at night la nne.t yes, sir, i nave gainod in weight, and what I have gained In health and strength can't be measured.
