Amid the rousing cheers of several hundred men, women, boys and girls, the special train composed of three companies of militia—Ozark, Bentonville and Springdale, and 2nd regimental band, Bentonville—d e p a r t ed here about twelve o'clock mid night last night for Fort Logan H. Roots where they will be mustered into the federal service and despatched to the border within the next ten days. Moth ers, sisters and sweethearts were there to be with their loved ones the last time before their probably long and hard service i n the United States Army. And, through it all, the boys were the braver. With heads up, shoulders well back and shining faces, their every move was an inspiration. There was a look of patriotism on their faces which showed they were readv to face any eventuality. If by chance there came a wist ful look into the face of any of the boys, it was scarcely noticed amid the cheers and good-byes of the throng. The Ozark com pany is probably one of the best, physically, in the state, Ozark is proud of her boys and it is certain that they will give a good account of themselves. The highest esteem possible is felt for the soldiers all over the county and the spirit has been truly manifested during the past week and on the moment of their departure. The first big honors accorded Company K was a week ago Monday night when Misses Pau line Clayton and Evangel Gallo way, assisted by the citizens of Ozark, gave the boys a reception on the court house lawn. This was followed by another recep tion Saturday night when the band furnished music and splen did addressed were made by the Rev. J. J. Galloway, G. C. Car ter, L. M. Guthrie, C. C. Col burn and Adjutant Dodson, of Gravette. On Monday night the boys [ were given a reception at the home of Mr: and Mrs. Otto Ha berer by the' Misses Mattie Mil ton and Regina Quaile while Tuesday and Wednesday nights were marked with concerts on the courthouse lawn by the Ozark Merchants’ Band. Today the boys are gone, but they are comforted by the thou’t that, back home, there is a city full of people whobelieve in them, and who are waiting and watch ing for their safe and triumph ant return. Company K de parted at full peace strength while Lieutenant A. B. Collins, recruiting officer, remained in Ozark and is working to secure recruits sufficient to build the company up to full war strength of 141 men. Captain F. M.
