whether they can ride 15 miles across
country on a horse. The order from
the war department has not put the offl-1
cers in a good humor, many oi tnem, i
as is the case at the arsenal, never
finding it necessary to use a horse.
Furthermore, many of them have left
important matters relating to the man
ufacturing side of the army unattend
ed to in order to obey the orders of tht
war department. The officers will have
no easy time of it, for they must either
ride horses provided by the govern
ment or animals which they themselves
own. No pacing, racking, or single
foot horses will be allowed in the col
umn, according to an order of Colonel
II. P. McCain.

Quartet Appears as First Number
Lyceum Course at Augustana.
The Dunbar company, which ap
peared as the first of the seven attrac
tions on the Augustana Lyceum
course this year, completely captivated
the large audience that heard them
last night at the college auditorium.
The program was made nearly twice
its original length by persistent en
cores. The bell ringing was a novel
and interesting musical innovation,
and the skill with which the bells were
manipulated evoked repeated applause
from the audience. The bells them
selves possess a remarkably pure and
rich tone and the harmony produced
approaches the marvelous.
The quartet work of the company
would alone win its way to popularity.
The four voices blend admirably and
the numbers were sung with much
feeling and expression.

squad of the officers gathers at the
armory of Company A in the rear of
the police station and indulges in tar

the militia. A number of the office
have magazine revolvers, and are de
veloping considerable skill in operat
ing them. The practice is a pleasant
and beneficial pastime.
