Fifty-nine Henderson county boys were entrained for training camps on Tuesday, fifty-seven of these of these entraining at Hendersonville and two at other points. There was not an incident to mar the going of the boys -. Every one showed up with a willingness to serye hiscoTnlfy "ah'was'lidrrncessary. to call on the substitute. The boys gathered at the city nail one hour before train time and bearda rousing farewell message from E. w. Ewbank, followed by brief remarks from Mayor C. E. Brooks, chairman of the local -exemption board. The roll call by C. N. Wrenshall proved the presence of each boy called for ser vice. The boys were provided with com fort kits: furnished by the Woman's club and the National League for Wo man's Service. In addition to these each boy was provided with a smilage book. To Dr. W. H. Justus credit is due for selling these. The name of the purchaser was on each book. These books admit the boys to the entertain ments at the camp. x The boys formed in fours and marched to the depot in company with the exemption board. There they found an arrangement somewhat different from that prevailing under previous estrainments. It was what Mayor Brooks described to the boys as "re sened seats." Heretofore the crowds were so large that there was confusion at the moment of entrainment. Oh Tuesday Chief Otis Powers had roped oft a good portion of the space at the depot and in this the boys gathered, while they had the opportunity to sit cr sand and talk to their friends, the arrangement being quite an improve ment over previous . ones. When the time for entrainment came Chief Pow-w ers without the slightest difficultyand with the best of order in the surging crovrd, led the way and the boys en trained and left amid the cheers of their friends. Hugh J. Earber was made leader, having been entrusted with the trans portation and records. C. T. Cobb entrained at Troy, N. Y., and Tillman A. Prestwood at Wichita, Kan., instead of at Hendersonville on 'Tuesday. The names cf those who left Tues day were given in last week's Hustler. Error in Registering.
