Doings of the “Buoyant M." Port Russell, Wyo., July 1,1912. This Is the most cheerful organiza tion that the writer has ever seen. Without going among them, one could never know what a friendly feeling these men hold for one another. The reason that one would not think that such happiness exists Is because the outfit usually has more men in the guardhouse than any of the other trocps This Is simply a sign of strict ness The average number of men In this troop seem to be better satisfied than the average number In other out fits. The troops has fewer "kickers" than any other organization known to the writer. One of the trop's good-feeling spreaders Is the Civilian Quartet. The gentlemen composing It are: Sarver, base: Bell, suprano: Leonard, tenor; Howard, alto. Corpl. Lewis, who recently held Sergt. Darshevskl to a draw, Is one of the best boxers In post at 165 pounds. 801 l Is the troop's 145-pound fist artlßt. nnd will challenge all comers at tbnt weight. lAe recruits of the troop beat all other in post shooting with the pistol. Two or them, Howard and Owens, made expert. The last named two will shoot with any similar two in the reg - Iment for the coin. Privates Robinson and Payne are troop's orderly buckers. They say that If guard duty should ever be consoli dated again, all other orderly buckers had better take notice. The pool team Is composed of Muck or, Chenault, Moseley and Leonard. Here Is the baseball aggregation: Captain Moseley, right field; Bell, center field; Olllver, left field; Miles, catcher; Lewis, pitcher; McClare, short stop; Stone, first base; Hill, second base; Owens, third base; How ard, substitute. The team Is out for suds. The men say that they are expect ing some good chow from Cook Dade who recently returned from Riley. The outfit has the three fastest wall scalers in post. Blakemore, Sarver and Snake form this trio. The troop was fortunate enough to secure elx eharpehooters, thirteen marksmen and five pistol experts this target season. Here are a few of the San Juan Hill ‘vets”: Corpl. Harrison, Miller Reed, Jeff. Jones and Pinkston. Bye, bye, M. Sergt. Major and Mrs. Deaan are visiting Washington, D. C. Owing to his huving been detailed to take an in sane man to the capltol, the . Sergt. Major was fortunate enough to $et the trip free of charge. On Sunday •evening. June 22nd, Chaplain Prioleav exhibited the Pash ion Play with moving pictures. A great crowd was in attendance. His services were well attended Sunday evening last. The recreation room of troop A was nicely arranged for the meeting. Chaplain Priolean spoke on The Value of Friendship." After this short talk a beautiful and inspiring service of song was conducted by the chaplain. Mrs. Garrard, wife of Colonel Gar rad. formerly the captain of troop A, was present and enjoyed the services. She shook hands with all the old members of the 9th cavalry present. Just because the 11th infantry broke even with the ninth bunch in the championship series, the white boys thought that they had a better team than the colored lads. The dough boys, therefore, challenged the cham pions to play a silver cup series of five games The cavalry lads accepted. The sand-fiddlers thought that if they should win the cup that sentiment would favor them as being the real champions, leaving the cavalry to be thought of as simply having lucked up on |t. But the horsemen fooled them by winning the cup in the same easy way that they won the championship. It is believed that the foot soldiers w ill now keep quiet. WON HER SPURS AT ITHACA.
