Corporal James O'Brien and Privates
Smith H." and "Smith G." of the 10th
airy arrived in the city late yester-
in advance of the first squadron of
that regiment marching enroute. The
lctachment came on ahead to see about
quantity of freight that is to be ship
ped to this point. The men are brown-
d by wind and sun, and show evideneo
jf continuous exposure. In speaking of
the ride, they are high in their praise
of roads through Iowa, but condemn
those of eastern Kansas and northern
Missouri as villainous. Corporal O'Brien
lated that there was almost continu
ous ram the first week out from tort
Uley, the starting point, and that on
it-count of this the column was thrown
onsideialdy off schedule, which they
iave been trying to make nit ever
ince. It was their opinion, however,
hat the time would be made up when
he troops arrived at the arsenal and
that they would be able to lay over u
ouple of days in this vicinity. He also
;tated that, while a surgeon and a do-
.lclimcnt of tile army medical corps
was with the command, there had been
no necessity for their presence up to

:bout the only excitement which has
iccui rcd during the entire trip to break
the monotony was a stampede which
occurred at niton. Mo. I here the
lorses became frightened at a train
md stampeded, causing considerable
tluiry lor a short time. .o one was
injured, however, and but little time
The command numbers 275 men and
about :;5'i horses, also a train of in
wagons drawn by army mules.
As an example of the; intelligence of
animals, it is stated that the mules
upon entering Missouri, began to tal
particular notice. Great rivalry was
evinced between them and the native
product, and as for kicking propensi
ties there is no doubt in the minds of
:iy of I he "whacke rs" that the Unit
States specie has any other long-eared
quadruped faded to a dim chromo.

Tilkini; Note of Trip.
The line of march is. formed in col
tiiun of squads 'with 2ntt yards between
troops. The column is under commam
of Major Lewis, ami Captain Fitzhtigh
Lee and Lieutenant Phil Sheridan, spe
ial military aides to the president
wdio are making notes of the trip am
photographs for the compilation of
data in regard to the endurance of men
and horses on long marches. The two
start officers have ingratiated them
selves in the opinion eif the men and
are among the most popular of the of
ticers with the command.
On account of the demands made
upon the stock, no field maneuvers
have been attempted, although at
places whore stops have been mad
special drills have boon ordered from
time to time. It is not known whether
anything ef the kind will be under
taken here or not.
The command is now living in shel
ter tents, two men to a tent. At the
start the conical war tents were used
but in the rain these became so damp
that the increased weight on the wagon
train with the decreased passabilitv
the roads was too much and they were
shipped on ahead and the shelter tents
"lions" are taking it all in good part,
however, and are dodging the artists
in the most graceful manner possible.
Given Mwh Liberty.
Considerable freedom is given the
enlisted men wherever stops are made.
After camp is pitched and the duties
of the men in this connection are fin
ished, rest call is sounded and the men
are free to go and come as they please
until recall. In larger cities taps does
not sound until 11 o'clock p. m.. and
after mess at night the men are allow
ed off bounds until taps and after if
they are on pass. The command is
composed largely of veterans, one man
in B troop now serving his 10th enlist
ment, which entitles him to retirement
next fall if he so desires. There is no
band with the column, and'the march
is being made for practie-al purposes

adopted. On this account, as well
others, the camp of the soldiers when
pitched em the island will prove ef vas
interest to the thousands of tri-city
people who have never seen a sight of
Ilinrrx from Infantry Cninp.
A cavalry camp is so essentially dif
ferent in appearance from that of any
other branch of the service, and should)
a special drill be. ordered here, a treat
indeed will be afforded those who wit
ness the ceremony.
From the account of the trip given
by Corporal O'Brien, the command will
not arrive in the tri-cities before Tues
day noon. They come from Muscatine
up the Iowa side over roads picked out
by a reconnoitering party of ten sent
several miles in advance who keep the
main ltody advised by telephone of the
condition of highways, bridges, etc.
Whenever a small bridge is found to
be in a weakened condition on account
of floods or from other causes, a detail
is sent out from the main body and it
is repaired before the command crosses.
No pontoons are carried, therefore the
command is forced to use only prepar
ed crossings of streams.
Great trouble Is being experienced all
along the line of march by Cantain
Lee, Lieutenant Sheridan, and Kermit
Roosevelt in escaping photographers.
At one place in Iowa a particularly per
sistent camera fiend pursued Lieuten
ant Sheridan all about the camp and
finally cornered him in his tent

The Limit of Life.
The most eminent medical scientists
are unanimous in the conclusion that
the generally accepted limitation of
human life Is many years below the
attainment possible with the advanced
knowledge of which the race is now
possessed. The critical period, that
determines Its duration, seems to be
between 50 and 60; the proper care of
the body during this decade cannot be
too strongly urged; carelessness thin
being fatal to longevity. Nature's best
helner after 50 is Electric Bitters, thj
scientific tonic medicine that revit-ii
Izes every -organ of the body. Guar
