At 10.30 this forenoon Company E took the oalh of allegiance to the United States from Major Jocelyn, nnd at noon as they relumed from the parade ground signed the uiuster-in' roll which made u, all soldiers of Uncle Sam. The cer emony was very impressive. At 8.30 every company fell in at their own streets at the adjutant's call marched to the parade ground. Here they were "lined up" "companies front" milking a line of National (iuardsmen 1200 stroiig reaching from one side of the parade ground to the other. After going through a few minor for malizes the command from Col. Clark came, "Companies Right," bringing them around in columns of companies. The recruiting officers, Maj. Jocelyn and Capt. Hovcy, U. S. A. then started with company A, and administered the oath to each company separately. Co. E being lifth in the column was the fifth to be sworn in. Maj. Jocelyn, Capt. llovev and Capt. Iiadgereach had a muster roll. As each man's name was called by Capt, liadger, lie answered hen!-' inarched past the officers, sa luted and "fell in"' as a member of Co. E, 1st Ucgt. Vt. Vol. After all had answered to their names with heads uncovered they raised their right band to receive the oath trom Maj. Jocelyn, after which we marched to our street ami after signing the roll, became a company in Uncle Sam's great army. Following is the oath: "1 do solemnly swear (or affirm) tlfiit I will bear true faith and allegiance to the United Stales of America and that I will serve them honestly and faithfully against all their enemies whomsoever; and that 1 will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me according to the rules and articles of war." Company E wishes to thank their friends at Harro who came to visit them Sunday for the many tokens of friend ship given them and that they alone know how they appreciate their kind ness, and especially the ladies who sent them the aprons and sleeves. Mr. (1. W. Lang felt very proud this after noon in his new uniform. The eooks found them to be the ' missing links " and last, but not least, we thank those friends who have sent us gifts from home.
