Oct. 1& The Bible ttlU, of chariots of lira and of simple donkey carts. The Rev. S. Tasart Steele, Jr.. -who has charge of religious work at Camp Meade for the Protestant Episcopal Church, has hit upon a vehicle thst combines the merits of the two. He decided to get himself a Jitney bus. It Is a Ford without camouflage and a Jitney without frills. The only fancy thing about It Is a lit tle step in tHe back such as are to be seen on patrol wagons. This tall deco ration will soon be gone. The going here is rough Indeed, and this Is no place for steps. It Is a hot pace toe Jitney men set over the deep holes left behind by the dynamiters who blew out stumps to blast a way Into the unknown region where this enor mous cantonment has been built In the past few months. Cant Held Hlsa Back. No path is too rough, no sand too deep, no mud too sticky to hold back Mr. Steele. If the engine balks he gets out and gives it a hard kick over and catches up with the procession. Those who are weary and heavily laden are sure to get a lift if be ses them. Old mothers with heavy bundles for their embattled sons who fear the expense if they get aboard the other busses cannot resist when they see Mr. Steele in his clerical garb. Ills smile carries with it a benediction tn their sad eyes. Also conducts the bus in the service of the Most High and charges no fees. Deea Excellent Work. Mr. Steele, who knows all about automobiles and has ridden in almost all kinds, might have had a nobby little runabout, or possibly a Clover Leaf model roadster, but what he thinks about, least of an. In connec tion with his job is himself. He is anxious for the leading men of his church to come here and see the camp from his point of view, to learn at first handSof the religious situation and Its Importance in relation to all the other problems of training. For the present his work requires frequent visits to Baltimore and Washington, and his car comes In very handily for that purpose. Bishop Murray, of Maryland, and Bishop Rhlnelander, of Pennsylvania, got together as soon as they learned that men from those two States wire coming to this camp, and decided to have atnlsslon work carried on here. This work, of course. Is for the Dis trict men at this camp. In the early days of camp life the big pay led to wild excesses In gambling and drinking among the workmen. The life here then was like that at some outpost of civiliza tion, a duplication of the looseness of frontier life. Mr. Steele was sent down on the Joh In those days. His services and those held by Father Kelly, the chaplain of the Tenth New York Regiment, now on other duty elsewhere, helped to give a decent tone to the place. A communion serv ice held by Mr. Steele every Sunday attracts large crowds of men He has become popular with workmen and soldiers from the first. The Jit ney idea is only one of many in which he has conformed to the situation and thus made his work more successful. Caa Drive Like Jehn. The main thing in this camp is no bility. The man who gets around is the one who gets in touch with the situation. Mr. Steele can drive like Jehu, and he knows nis Job well. Religious work Is an Important factor In this camp. Mr. Steele co operates with the Y. M. C A. In ev ery way possible, making one of the buildings his headquarters for ser vices. There are Catholic masses, as many as four or five every Sunday morning, at three different Y. M. C A. buildings. Later on the Knights of Columbus will have their build ings ready for Sunday services and entertainments on week nights. There Is also a Young Men's Hebrew As sociation, which will have a center for religious and social work. ING MEN OF SURVIV MOSBY'S RANGERS STAGE REUNION The golden autumn fields of Vrr ginia, the very ones which more than fifty years ago saw the formation of the famous "Forty-third Battalion, yesterday witnessed a gathering of Its surviving men. On a sloping lawn of the home of Mr. Brittle in the little town of Rem ington there laughed and talked with tears in their eyes the now gTay- haired "boys" who had once followed the black plume of Mosby la the smoke of battle. It was a typical Southern scene the gathering of old and young from the countryside, the men in gray telling their stories of how they chased Yanks and took Sheridan's sutler-trains, the colored servants of the family taking in the holiday on one side of the crowd, and the great tables laden with piles of fried chicken and delicious country ham. In fact, the feast prepared by the Eeneroua. ladles, of Remington would have made them eternally ene mies of Mr. Hoover. Lee's Grandson Talks. When the feasting was over, out on the porch stepped CoL Robert E. Lee, grandson of the immortal leader, and as he spoke there thundered by in the distance a long train passing south cars full of new soldiers bound to the training camps preparing for a new conflict. At 11 o'clock In the morning about forty of Mosby's men met in the town hall to transact business Among the Washingtonians were Frank Angelo, A. W. Fairfax and Capt. F. A. Strother. The following men, mostly from the farms of what was once "Mosbys Confederacy, were present. Dr. L. W. Dunn, Bart- lett Boiling. H. C. Bowen. B. X. Cow. herd, C Danne, R.'M. Mackalt, J. W. Coone, B. F. Nails, J. R. Kerrick, J. P. Simpson, Lud Lake J. M. Ayier, J. C. Uti. C. R. Mcintosh, A. E. Many- ett, C. H. Dear. P. It. Budd. J. E. Stone, T K. Stone, L. E. Hutchinson, R. S. Burke, T. T. Jones.

The camp formally reorganized. Dr. Dunn being made commander: Frank Angelo, of Washington, ad jutant and treasurer; Capt. F. Beat tie, of Alexandria, first lieutenant, and Captain Ballard, second. Mrs. Esther Emmirt, of Washlngtonsptok to the veterans regarding the secur ing of the names or all the veterans in a roster, then -Angelo' followed with an appeal to the men that an organization be formed to secure the erection of a monument to Colonel Mosby. Dr. James Wiltshire, of Bal timore, was elected president of this committee, and It was voted that the entire camp be, known as Iosby Monument Association," which was to consider ways and means of car rying out the project. Shaft In Old Heme. The concensus of opinion was that any shart erected should be placed in hja old home, Warrenfon, Va., which Is the center of the Piedmont country. In which the command operated. The obtaining of the funds will be under taken by the committee and the se lection of a design then gone Into for decision. It Is probsble that the aid ot the Virginia Daughters of the Con federacy will be enlisted, as well as that of camps all over the South. The exercises in the hall were closed by the band playing Dixie, after which the old veterans and the general crowd adjourned to dinner on the lawn. Among those present were Mrs. Brittle, of Warrenton; Mrs. Esther Emmart, of Washington, and Colonel Mosby's two grandchildren, Beverly Mosby Coleman and Miss Pauline Mosby Coleman, of Washing ton, as well as Miss Rosa Fairfax, of this city. The Rev. Mr. Mears, of Albemarle, spoke the concluding ad dress. No formal selection of the next pla-e of meeting was made, but It is likely Front Royal will see the next gathering.
