Fun In Camp.
Some wicked pranks were played
by the troops occasionally durin
the encampment. While we do not
endorse such as the following we
nevertheless tell it for the benefit of
our readersrQA madcap member of
Co. , Regiment, on Thurs
day night came across a party of
bootblacks sound asleep around a
fare on the outskirts of the camp
when a brilliant idea suddenly oc
curred to him. He hurried to his
company quarters and imparted the
scheme to several of his comrades
and induced them to join him. The
party secured their pieces and man
aged to get outside or tne camp
without detection. They then sur
rounded the sleeping squad of boot
blacks and awaking them told them
that they, had been robbed and
accused them of the, theft. They
would take no denial but told them
that military lav was very- strict in
this particular. When a thief was
caught m camp lie was generally
hung but in this instance, as they
were all boys, they would give them
a chance for life. Each man then
rammed a blank cartridge into his
gun and told the boys that they
must run for their lives. As they
ran they would be shot at and the
innocent would all escape but the
guilty party was sure to be hit". The
word was then given and the boys
went like the wind and yelling like
unto Comanche Indians. The party
fired and it is needless to sav that
the boys all escaped.
