O folds of white and scarlet! O blue
field with your silver stars! May fond
eyes welcome you, willing feet follow
you, strong hands defend you, warm
hearts cherish you, and dying lips
give you their blessing! Ours by in
heritance, ours by allegiance, ours by
affection—long may you float on the
free winds of heaven, the emblem of
liberty, the hope of the world!—Anon.

Calling for Volunteers.
The Military Training Camjis
as.'^ociation for North Carolina is
appealing for men from this

at Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., from May

This is enormous. Conditions are
favorable and Transylvania should
