MONBADGERS WISCONSIN SOLDIERS IN TEXAS LOSE FLESH UNDER FIERCE GLARE OF SUN. OFFICERS EASE UP ON WORK Promise Relief From Heavy Drills During Torrid Weather—Federal Inspector Finds Wisconsin Camp in Good Condition. San Antonio, Texas. The intense heat is telling upon the Wisconsin soldiers at Camp Wilson, all are rapidly losing superfluous flesh un der the blazing hot sun that beats down upon the Texas plains. Many of the men unaccustomed to the scorch ing heat have collapsed on the drill field, twenty being overcome in one day. There are no serious cases of prostration reported, however. There was much complaint among the men because of their being re quired to drill for long periods in the hottest part of the day, but fear of an open mutiny was removed when offi cers announced that the men would be given easier work while it remain so hot. The officers were forced to admit that they had mapped out too strenu ous a campaign in their efforts to toughen the men for possible Mexican service. “Ghost Walk” Causes Joy. Joy reigned in Camp Wilson when Uncle Sam’s “ghost” walked for the boys of the three Wisconsin regiments j and other state troops. Incidentally, | it might be said that joy reigns in i San Antonio, too, for the merchants ' had laid in anew stock and were waiting for the soldiers to turn over their pay envelopes for cigars, tobac co, ice cream, postcards and various other things. They did a rushing bus iness. The Wisconsin members —meaning privates—of this division of the bor der army received $5 each. They have earned this amount by working hard in a boiling sun for eleven days. The federal government places no restric tion on the manner in which they spend it. No typhoid fever cases have broken out among the Wisconsin men. The troopers generally are in health. One of the main fights conducted here is the crusade against the fly. Watermelons are not permitted in the camp, because of the difficulty in disposing of the rinds. All refuse mat ter is put in incinerators. The caipp is kept Leat and clean. A bathhouse and hydrant has been placed near each tent. Bedding and equipment are exposed to the sun daily. The wa ter supply is pure and is being con stantly analyzed. All meats, vege tables and breadstuffs are inspected by medical men. Regular army officers who inspected the Third Wisconsin regiment paid high compliment to Company E, Fond du Lac, on equipment and general or der of the men. It is the largest com pany in the brigade. Orderlies Draw Bucking Mounts. The Wisconsin infantry regiments were highly entertained when the mounted orderlies of each regiment received horses from the government. The horses were no sooner received than mounted orderlies appeared in the air, on the ground and every where. They bounced up and down like the piston on a vertical engine; they soared gracefully through the air like birds on the wing; they took up positions on the ground with great suddenness and dull and sickening thuds; they slid, scraped, coasted and rolled, and kicked up showers of dried gumbo from one end of the camp to the other. But nobody was hurt, and the horses finally behaved as army horses should after they were so thor oughly tired that there was not a good kick left in them. Many of the mount ed orderlies knew little or nothing about horseback riding. Four mules have been given to each supply company in the Wisconsin camp. These will be ridden by mem bers of the company, the only mule riding soldiers in the outfit. It is ex pected there will be a large and ex ceedingly active demonstration along ‘‘Wisconsin street” when the supply men introduce themselves to their fu ture companions. The 1,228 members of the Second in fantry have been vaccinated to pro tect them against smallpox. The work was done by Surgeons Maj. James R. Scott and Lieuts. George H. Scheer, William C. Watkins and William N. Moore of the sanitary corps. Chaplains Have Busy Time. One of the first men to alight from the Third regiment train upon its ar rival at Camp Wilson was Chaplain George R.

Wright of An tigo, a junior at the university. He is a member of Company B, Second infantry, Illinois.

When he visited the sanitary corps of the Second in fantry, Appleton, they showed him a hairy tarantula on the ground. He didn’t like its locxs. Detecting this, they showed him some bigger ones in a jar. That nearly settled him, but when he looked at the ground and saw a green snake making towards him he bolted. Private Walters has not been seen on the grounds of the Second regiment of late. Troop B in U. S. Service. Camp Douglas, Wis.

RETAIN CONTROL OF SELF Without That It Is Unreasonable to Think One Has C->e Ability to Control Others. The other day a man who makes his living by fighting was struct* by an undersized man, and instead of return ing the blow he walked away from his diminutive assailant. This man exhibited much more self control than the majority of people. Men who class themselves as being on a higher plane than this fighting man would have mixed immediately with the hot-headed individual. What would you have done? The chances are that you would have rushed at the fellow with all your might; you would have permitted your savage instincts to rule you. This proves that you have not as much power as you should have over your impulses. You may boss other people, but you are not boss of yourself. Maybe you wonder why others are forging ahead of you as leaders of men. It is because they have a check rein on themselves. They have schooled themselves that they may be able to guide others. Self-control is the at tribute of a leader. —Chicago Ameri can. IF YOU OR ANY FRIEND Buffer with Rheumatism or Neuritis, acute or chronic, write for my FREE BOOK on Rheuma tism—lts Cause and Cure.
