Ariz., Aug. 21, 1817. The Spectator. The camp of the 35th Infantry is located one-half mile from Nogales. ArizJ. which is a small city of 5,000 inhabitants. The Mexican border extends through the center of this city. We sol diers guard the border and allow no one to commit a nuisance on or near the border. This country is very mountain ous and covered with sand and rocks. We drill every day except Sat urdays and Sundays. First call goes a 5:45 a. m. In 15 minutes we are out and lined up for re veille. After we stand reveille and we have had time to wash our hands and faces and comb our hair, the call goes that every body is always ready for and glad to hear—Chow call. After we have all enjoyed a good morning meal, we line up and pick up every thing in the company street, such as paper, match heads, cigarette stubs, etc. After we have finished our polic ing up and have had time to go to our tents and fill our canteens with water the drill call goes (6:30). We grab our rities and belts and are out Jined up ready for drill in 15 minutes. We drill from this time till 11:30. At 11:30 we are marched in by our company commander and dis-' missed. At 12:00 we eat dinner and are ready to rest until 3:30. During this time the boys can be seen some washing, some play ing ball and some writing to his best girl. etc. At 3:30 drill call goes and we drill on signaling, first aid, etc. until 4:30, when we are dismissed and prepare for supper, which is ready at 4:30. At 5:30 we line up in the eom psny street and stand at atten tion while the “Star Spangled Danner” is played by the band. After the last note has been played, we are dismissed for the day. Some of the boys go to town, and most of them go to the Y. M. C. A., where we have free magazines and a library etc. All the boys are all getting ex perienced in cqoking and wash ing dishes as every one serves a day in the kitchen about every 15 days. The boys are all well and en joying soldier life. Hoy Martin, Bugler. Co. A. 35th Infantry. A Safe Test. For those who are in need of a remedy for kidney troubles and ickaehe, it is a feood plan to try Doan’s Kidney. Pills. They are trongly recommended by Rus sellville people.! Mrs. Samuel McKee, Washing ton St.. Russellville, Ark., savs: “Some time ago I found that my kidneys were weak. I had a .ready, dull ache in the small of my back and I often noticed .-■pecks before my eyes that affec ted my sight. My kidneys acted irregularly and 1 realized that they needed attention. ,1 tried Dean’s Kidney Pills and they hepled me greatly. I used other, kidney medicines and can say that Doan’s Kidney Pills gave the host results of all. Price 60c, at all dealers Don’t simply ask for a kidney remedy get Doan’s Kidney Pills—the same that Mrs. ‘McKee had. Foster-Milburn Co., Props., Buf falo, N. Y. Advertise in This Paper -1-4 LARGEST AMERICAN FLAG. The City of St. I -onis possesses the largest American flag in ex~ istenee, as far as is known. It is 150 feet long and' 7K feet wide. Each of the thirteen stripes is six feet wide. Imagine a plot of ground containing 11.700 square feet almost one quarter of an acre and you will have an idea of the size of the flag. When used in pa rades it requires 200 people to carry’ it. But on account of its great width it cannot he carried through many of the streets of the city. Popular Science. One of the young soldiers re marketl to the listeners: “I don’t think it’s light for older men to hi* discouraging us by talking about the dangers we shall have to face in the trench es and on the firing line; the chances of being wounded or killed or of dying in the hospital. We know all this and have counted the cost and are ready and willing to pay the price of genuine patriotism." He was a volunteer and will | valiantly fight for the flag un der which he has enlisted, an 1 j it is safe say that this is more J than the said calamity howlers ' will do. And it is also safe to 1 say that wfign the flag shall 1 have been borne to final and | complete victory and the boys i “come marching home." glori ous conquerors, and the people according them triumphal re ception. this same slacker will be right up at the front: Irv ing to fool the heroes with a be lated show of patriotism. This ; despicable dispenser of pessi mism and all his kind ought to be suppressed. It would be but ! giving them just deserts to put them in the front trenches that they might have personal ex periences of the dangers and sacrifices they so blatantly teil tthc soldiers they must en counter.

His illness, due to dropsy and heart trouble, man ifested itself about a year ago, when he came to Ozark to spend his last days with his brother and wife who were in a position to care for him in the most ten der way, and this they did. His wife having died five years ago and all his children being dead, except one son, D. J.' of Gilmore, Okla., the caring for and laying away of this lonely brother fell to their lot, and the devotion of the little family and other rel atives to him was more accentu ated because of this. He was and Confederate sol dier. a member of the Freewill Baptist Church, and a good man whom everybody respected and I the neighbors loved. Funeral services were conduc ted at the Hixon cemetery by Rev. VV. J. LeRoy Tuesday after noon, and the remains laid to rest by the side of his mother.
