Prowtisvillo, Texas, July 24; ?The gohornl conditions at Cum|i remiiin the snmo aw re? ported in the lust account, with ,1 fuwi minor changes. As I write, most of the mom "oers of Company II uro on guard huiy. This men lie that tho safely of tin' encampment is in their hands. lOach man, gun loaded with high power car tiiilges, has a portion of the surrounding fence to patrol. Should one who is not a soldier approach, the guard challenges hini, and will not lot him pass unless ho possesses n written permit, Bigriod by a high officer, Lost night, just after being posted, one of the boys saw an auto passing through his sec lieu cif territory; In the roar eeat was a captain, and a civi? lian ohanlFem running the mn clliue; They were halted, und tin' chauffeur und bis machine turned back. Such was the zeal of the guard, that the captain himself found dilliculfy in get ting through, being forced to wail until the corporal of the guard was summoned. Yesterday, Sunday, was a holiday. No drill was allowed, nut even morning setting up ex? ercises. At .S::i<! a. in., the Chaplain, Capt. Dennis, held a religions service, largely at? tended. The '2nd Regiment Hand but the hymns?old, familiar ones. ('apt. Dennis spuke forcefully and feelingly mi the subject of "The Oath", with special reference to the military oath of allegiahen. Among ulher tilings he urged the tuen to hold to the same stuudard of morality observed ut their homes. The church services in Mrownsvillu were well attended by the soldiers. Sunday dinner at Company H's mess wns a surprise. Steak, macaroni with CHEESE, apple pie and iced tea. In camp pari mice, the cooku "pulled oh" a big one." At Port Brown, in the lifter it.i, there wits a ball game be iween the Richmond "Grays" und Company F, of the regu lurs. The latter were victors by u o' to II scorn. A polo game followed,? Illinois infantry versus the Fort Brown horse? men, This was a beautiful ex? hibition of expert and daring horsemanship. The Illinois hoys were snowed under--7 toO. Just here, it may be interest? ing to the golf enthusiasts of the (in)) to know that the course :it the Brownsville club has been put at the disposal of the Bohlier golfers. From avail? able statistics it appears that Company II will ovorshadow the rent in this game. We have nine players. There are only two to be found in tho other companies of the 2nd Regiment. In the 1st Regiment only four delight in "chnsing the little white pill." Thorn is little time to play except Sun? days. Company II was detailed last uight for guard duty. Each man walked guard two hours and rented four. This continued for _'i hours. This morning ut breakfast a sleepy, disgruntled crowd tiled through tho cook tent. Coffee?"barefoot"?was the favorite, and was apportion? ed generously. The sick call today discover? ed only six patients, an un? usually small number. None 'if these were serious cases. Neuralgia, boils and tooth-ache was about the extent of the trouble. The "sick" ones, of I tor treatment ut the Hold hos-1 I pital, woro detailed to roll the j tents, bo that tho nun could get I at. the floors and cots. I Saturday was a red letter jday. Aftor u thorough sanitary and physieial examination .(known as S. M. I., or Saturday morning inspection), the glad? some news leaked out that tho First National Hank was guard? ed by a detuil of soldiers. Kvery ono know what that meant. Pay-day was horn at last! (Junh was given for service from on listment in Juno to tho Ural of July, Brune privates receiving us much as $0.001 Some had borrowed more than their pay would meet, but eanh in hand put a face on things, neverthe? less. It is the opinion of some of the ollicers that tho lato drouth of ready money was a good thing, after all, as they say that u "broke" Boldier is better than a "full soldier"! 'The scheme of drill has boon altered to give variety of work. Hoavy marching will be the rule. Battalion. drill occurs frequently. We have the honor of being the ranking Company of the Hod Battalion, and Capt. i'.tillitt is, of course, the rank ing Oaptaiii, At for real "news", there is very little. Rumors in plenty. Kor example?it is hoard on good authority that the camp is to he moved immediately to another point ou the border; that the companies will be dis? tributed along the Rio (Iramlu; that the Government purposes to carry on an immediate cam? paign of forcible oversight and education of the .Mexican peo pie: that Villa is on his way to the border with 1,800 melt, bent on plunder and pillage; that we will he back lo in (lap within six weeks; that the camp here is a permanent one, and all will remain here three years at least; that all the married men will he sent home al once; that all will be sent to the Philip? pines for a term of service; that we'll he sent buck by transport in time for election day in No vomberjaud so on, ad inrlhituml Some insist that the move.ut of troops to tho border, original? ly ti necessity strategic move, has been turned into a political instrument to pacify advocates of preparedness. Tho American residents of this section all say that the only sensible thing to do is to maintain a large armed force along tho border for an Indefinite period of time, us the Mexicans will surely begin mnkingtrouble tlitS minute the troops are withdrawn. The only real bit of "dope" is tho fact that three months' sup plies of medical supplies have been ordered for this camp. Wo can only wait for future developments. W. J. A. Mrs. Prescott Entertains.

Dr.,I. P. Martin has announc? ed that Gamp Meeting this year will be held August 26t,h and 27th. Rev. J. Stuart French will bo present and take part iu I the meeting. Mayo Cabell. At u mooting of tho Wiso County Bur Asso, ii.iion, held July IS, 1918, nt the Court Houbo of Wiho County, Vir? ginia: The President, Mr. K. M. Kul? ten called tho meeting to order. The Secretary, Mr. Wade M. Miles, acted uu such. Tho President stated that the death of Mayo Cabell, one of the attorneys and counsellors of this Mar, and a beloved mem? ber of this Association bad oc cured .once the last meeting of tho Association; that proper memorials of respect to his memory, and resolutions of sympathy for his bereaved family were in order. '['hereupon,, tho Committees heretofore appointed, consist? ing of Mr. J. W. I'halkloy and Mr. A. K. Morison, presented tho following memorial anil resolutions, which were road to the meeting: A proper appreciation of the life and character of Mayo Cabell, whoso death brought sorrow to tho members of this Mar, in but justice to his good name and memory, and the last possible tribute from this Bar of the respect and high esteem in which his memory is held. Comparatively few in years, the brief span of his entire pro fessionnl career, was spent in Wise County, and yet brief as was this span of life, it was siilliciclit to exemplify the well said truth that "Life is lived in deeds well done and not years spent.'* The high sense of duty actuating his life was the dominant characteristic of the man. Imbued with this ideal, it was but natural that bis activities in every Held were accomplished in a manner both thorough and complete. By bis genial friendliness and never failing courtesy he made many friends who were never lost to him, for his unswerving loyalty to high ideals, lofty aspirations, and the obligations of duty are tho strongest ties which hind man to man. 'I'd those who know hint most intimately , in his home, as a neighbor and friend, his life left nothing to he desired. No man was more tenderly devol ed to his family and home, or was a belter and more sympa? thetic neighbor, or a more loyal and true friend. As a citizen be contributed freely and without stint of his labor, abilities and resources to the moral life and civic wel? fare of his adopted home. In the Held ot Iiis profession he was best known and most highly esteemed. Here his high sense of duty to the courts of law; his regard for the ethics of his profession, his abilities anil learning were known and moru fully appreciated. To the best traditions Jot the Bur, he contributed his full share, and this share will bo known und recounted in days to come. As an adversary at trial his abili? ties and learning were highly respected, and Iiis conduct of cases admired; in the ardor of argument, and in the stress of hard fought cases, thoso in? herent traits of courtesy and consideration. which characterized tho man, were never forgotten or laid aside. For several terms of office ho served the Town of Big Stone (lap as its oftipiul attorney. Many laborious duties, some unpleasant ami unprofitable, were required of him, and bo gave to these duties the same enthusiasm, tireless energy ami laborious elVort that marked his work in other pleasant and more profitable fields. As a Koferuu in Bankruptcy and as h judicial otticer of the Govorment, his careful con? sideration, his kind and never failing courtesy, and his sound judgment and legal abilities, speedily won for him the friend? ship und sincere admiration, alike of the counsel und liti? gants who came into bis court. The life of an individual can? not be told by u single act taken from the multitude of activities making the whole, nor rightly judged by any single day, when that duy severed anil apart from the sum of days stretching from the beginning to the ulti? mate end. Lifo, its service and accomplishments, its ideals and I aspirations, are shaped and take tangible form, from the totnl days translated into activities '?days of I ibor and of rest, of gladness ami of sadness. From '? the continuity of the whole, the individual life, and the service and good accomplished by it, for its day und generation stands forth in bold relief, clear and unmistakable as a lofty mountain peak is lifted up from the level of its chain. Tho days of Mayo Cabuli's life have been spent, and comes the eternal query, "What doth a law require of a man?" The wisdom of the ages answer, " That he deal justly,love mercy ami walk humbly with his God." These are the things to which his life was given. Whereas, the death of Mayo Cubed brings to this Bar, a profound and sincere apprecia? tion of his abilities and ethics as a lawyer, his high ideals, his devotion to duty, his aims of justice and his many qualities of mind and heart. Therefore, be it. Resolved, that wo mark the deep sorrow occasioned by his death, and the loss to this l'.ar of one of its conscientious, up right and ethical members, j And, be it further, Itesolved, that these proceed? ings he spread upon the Order Hook of the Circuit Court of Wise County, Virginin, publish? ed in the Big Stone Gup Post, and that a copy of the same be transmitted to his widow, as an expression of sorrow and sym? pathy from the members of this Bench and Bar. Upon motion duly made and seconded, it was unanimously, Resolved, that said tribute and memorial be adopted, ami that Messrs. Chalkloy and Mor ison, present the same to the Circuit Court of Wise County for an order to spread the same upon the Order Book of said Court. In due course, the said Com? mittee reported that tho said Court had ordered the tribute and memorial spread upon its < irder Book. There being no further biisi uess before the meeting, on mo? tion it was adjourned: K. M. Kf i.nin, VYaok M. Milks, President Secretary. TRY IT! SUBSTITUTE FOR NASTY CALOMEL.

State Board of Health Antici? pates Increase In Number of Cases Unless Precau? tions Are Quickly Taken. Richmond, Vu., July Tho roiim which have boon do luging Virginia in the lout few weeks may result in a sharp in crease in the number of cases of typhoid fever, according to the Stale Hoard of Health, uu less prompt precautions are taken by all whose water sup? ply is in danger of possible pol? lution by J^overllow or other? wise. The I a to spring, health olllcors say, gave Virginia the prospects of a favorable typhoid year, but. these prospects are fast being Upset by continued washing rains and the morbidity for the year may exceed that of tOifi unless individual householders and farmers protect, themselves, The rains, it appears, are peculiarly favorable to the spread of typhoid, in that they wash the tilth into streams, whence, it may find its way in? to water-supplies of different communities. On farms, also, where reliance is placed on springs, heavy rains sometimes choke up the ditches or dam the spring-brunches und result in ovorllow or backwater that may be dangerous. The hoard is strongly urging uvury furnier to waten his spring and, if he finds the water muddy after rains, to eil her use another spring or to render the supply safe by proper ditching above and below the spring. Fall directions for do? ing tins have been issued in printed form by the hoard und may bo had free upon request. Of serious outbreaks of ty? phoid, the hoard reports few during the last month, and none that could lie classed as genuine epidemics. All report? ed outbreaks have been investi? gated In officers of the boutd and have been traced to differ? ent causes in the various lo? calities effected. In some in? stances, the origin of the di? sease w.iS relatively obscure and responsibility was placed on what seenied to be minor and overlooked factors in sani? tary protection.
