In the United States there are 50, 000 scouts in 23 states. The late Ad miral Dewey was the father of the Naval Scouts, the object of the forma tion of which was to interest young hoys in the navy service and to give them an early training which in later life, whether as civilians or members of rncle Sam's navy, would prove most beneficial to them. On the death of Admiral Dewey, Ad miral Benson of the United States navy became chief naval scout and Major General George Barnett of the marine corps became chief marine scout. Since the establishment of the local (livision the hoys have shown much interest in the drilling. At the pres ent time the fitv Auditorium is at the disposal of the division, through the kindness of Mayor W. II Maloney, for tin* regular meetings on Tuesday nights. The Symons Dry Goods com pany has donated $15 worth of cloth f->r signal Hags. The hoys bought their own uniforms, which arrived in time for Christmas. In addition to their regular drill work the hoys, after school hours, visit the local navy recruiting ofliee and assist in every way in recruiting messages for the army officers and making themselves generally useful.
