According to an-angements, on
the morning of Tuesday, August
22, I got our equipment onto one
of the great van trucks of the
Transportation Company and ac
companied it Iti miles down the
Firehole to Madison Junction. My
old friend Cushman gave me a
profane welcome and I whiled
away a few hours with him while
1 waited the arrval of the boys,
on the Ranger truck from Ma'm
moth Springs .The boys stili laugh
at a good joke 1 nlayed on myself
here.
Pefore we loft St. Johnsbury Dr.

and in addition to my contribution
I tendered the contents of the
knansack which we wotilrl nn Innir-
er need.
When I veached the bottoni I
found a small bottle of dark -color-ed
liquid marked "Poison". I had
"dropped a stitch" a few days be
fore and stili had a very trouble
some back. I said, "By George
Cushman, here's a bottle of l'odine.
Pub some on mv back." "Sure,"
said he, "peel off." He rabbed and
rubbed until I said "don't put on
too much or it will blister." An
hour lattei-, when the boys carne,
one of the,m snirfed and said "leen

called that I had gone to one of

had him put up my favorite mos

and Pennyroyal. Tho old man said
"Dam it, I thought it was a blank-cty-blank
