I am in a desperate looking country no one out here except Indians and soldiers never see any one else I left Jefferson Barracks Mo Dec 26 1903 was nine days getting here four days and night on the train and days marching from the railroad stitlon to this fort Most of the way was a desert There were fifteen of us togather and we had our fun allot the buys with the exception of one or two are from some city Of course walking didnt agree with them but 1 was use to climbing up and down old Cumberland river hills and it didnt hurt me quite so bad only my feelings Two or three days we marched all day didnt see any one from morning until night Some times I thank I could see 500 miles straight not a crook or even a bush to be seen Game is plentiful here Five of the G troop boys came in the other day with three cubs five deer and lots of prairie chickens Us recruit are getting plenty of drilling forenoon with carbine sabers and revolver afternoon mounted drillI see why any could dislike army After we get turned to duty we can get a hunting pass for five or six days days can go put riding every Sunday The great trouble of going out riding Is there isnt any place to go through the Indian reservation At first it was a fine scenery for me I never had been around them very much But I soon grew tired of It as they are so awful dirty and lazy It is almost impossible for anyone to desert here for it is one hundred and twenty five miles from any B R station and the worst of all Is Uncle Sam has fiftean Indian scouts they can trail a man equal to a fox dog and are always practicing It is somewhat dry here hasnt rained or snowed for eight months but roe inch snow It is warm havenot had on my coat but once since I came here I was sorry to hear of the Steamer Burnslde burning It will be greatly missed up and down Cumberland river The following is a piece of poetry for my Kentucky girl Remember thee can I forget One Xmas night when first thee I met The sun may cease his light to give And all thats bright may cease to live The moon may cease her course torun The rain drops to tall one by one But while sight remains my eyes will turn To thee for whom my heart does burn Remember thee those dark blue eyes Shall ever in my memory rise Remember thee thy clear sweet voice Shall ever be my only choice The roaring waters of the sea May very calm and silent be But in the calm Ill listen still For her sweet voice my soul to fill Remember well and bare In mini That such a girl is hard to find ORAL L McCLURE 3rd Cavalry H Troop TBE STOMACHS When the external body

known from one end of the country to the other says the Salt Lake Herald Since he retired from the governorship to private life he has not been prominently before the public but many men are living who remember the speech that made him famous It was in the fortythird Congress and Benjamin F Butler of Massachusetts was forging chains for the South when Brown then comparatively unknown delivered his famous philippic against the then Congressman from Massaetusetts That speech has gone into the records of Congress as the most masterly bit of invecelve ever delivered there It came from a heart burning with the knowledge of a great wrong and it is said to be the only human utterance that ever touched Ben Butler After describing the broken and bankrupt condition of the South Mr Browusald

Oou- rierJdurnal is wellknown to the Deiiiocrata of this State the abil it pri fits ble editor is highly ap dated but his loyalty to the party and his prophetic deolara tionBar not received by the great bulk of Democrats as infallible Possibly Mr Bryan is too insist ent on whatthe party should do in its next convention and possibly Mr Watterson demands tot much from his fellows in this state If Mr Bryan is not consistent then Mr Watterson should be lenient in his criticism in VIew of his own reoortt We trust that harmony wIllprevail that the lamb and the lion will worK together We ad mire the abilities ofboth the above- mentioned ontlemon but are not willing for either to ply the lasb or mako the la w Democrats of Kentucky are not likely to openly repudiate their posItion on the

ysat8 he is often in opposition to the party If Mr- Bryanis tp Qe repudiated it is the task for the next convention rath or than a paper that has blocked his way The convention in St Louis will
