TO FEED GUARDS
.Captain Frank L. Mueller,
Who Accepted Reduction,
Takes Up New Work
MASTERS EVERY DETAIL
By CARL L. ZEISBERG
Kvtnita Jsdaer Staff Corrttpodmt
EL PASO, Tex., Aug. 9. The bread that
Pennsylvania's soldiers will eat, rreih from
the Camp Stewart baltery, will be clean and
irhoUsome. Captain frank I Mueller, of
Philadelphia, assumed charge of the divi
sion headquarters bakery today.
There 1 a, closer connection between
those two sentences than appear Captain
Mueller, who already knows cooking In
general from A to Z and halt way back,
today mastered baking down aa far as X
and by nightfall he wilt have completed
the alphabet of baking. Not long ago he
learned that he would be detailed to take
charge of the bakery. Scorning the Im
portant air that many officers assume
when they are detailed to take charge of
anything, he went oer to the Ford Bliss
bakery Instead, put on a whlto uniform and
a huge apron, rolled up his sleeves and
plunged Into the dough. He kneaded it
and rolled It; put It Into the ovens: he
ivatched over It aa a physician might ob
serve a patient. And when It came out,
a warm loaf with crisp crust, he tasted It
to see If It was good enough. All this In
pits of the astonishment of the regular
army sergeants, who witnessed the precedent-smashing
act of a captain actually
boklng bread and learning the art of it so
that ha will know If hl underlings are
baking good bread.
WOULD KNOW ALL.
"I want to know aa much about bread
making as my bakers do." said Captain
Mueller. He doesn't know that he Is being
quoted, and probably he will sniff when he
learns that his words are being used. Nev
ertheless, It Is a fact that there Is general
satisfaction throughout the division because
the making of the staff of life 'Is in the
hands of the baker captain.
Captain Mueller, who Is commissary of
the Third Regiment, who will be Inspector
of small arms practice If that position is
re-established by Congress, and who will
take command of a company If It Isn't, Is
the Major Mueller who accepted a reduction
In rank to come to the border, so anxious
was he to continue his long' service in the
National Guard. As commissary of the
First Brigade, a position now abolished, he
conducted the famous culinary schools for
National Guard cooks on the Hatfield
estate, In Philadelphia, for many years.
When General Clement and his staff In
spected the Strand Regiment this morning
they completed their examination of the
Pennsylvania Infantry. They found not
only a neat ramp, but a camp that boasted
the only park on the mesa, Turner-Casoy
Park, named In honor of Colonel Turner
and Major Casey.

WILL MAKE ARTILLERY

War Secretary Approves Change
of Infantry Body Much
The Second Regiment, an Infantry com
mand since im, Is not likely to return to
Philadelphia as such. Secretary of War
Baker has given his consent to the transfer
of an Infantry regiment of the Pennsyl
anla National Guard now nt the border
to the field artillery, nnd Colonet Turner's
command Is the choice of the Guard au
thorities for the change.
The Secretary's decision was announced
at Harrlsburg by Adjutant General Slew
art. It was anticipated by those In the
confidence of General Prlco and the other
high Guard officers that In th event of
Ihe transfer the Second would be selected
as tho nttlllcry regiment.
General Price has worked hard to achle-e
the transfer, believing that the Pennsyl
vania National Guard would be strength
ened by the addition of a full regiment of
artillery, to be located In this city, an arm

THINGS AT BORDER NO DIFFERENT
THAN THEY HAVE BEEN FOR YEARS
And So They Will Be in the Future, Writes Member of a
Philadelphia Company, Who Advocates a Little
A letter from an officer of one of the
Philadelphia companies In El Paso has been
receded by a friend In this city, a portion
of which follows:
"Well, we are down here, for what I
don't know, except that the President must
have had a nightmare and fancied he saw
spooks. Things are no different here, ac
cording to "prominent citizens, than they
have been for four years past and prom
ise to be for years to come.
' We are in camp about 10 miles out on
the mesa, and beyond Fort BHm. All there
Is to be seen Is some rugged mountains, ap
parently within touching distance, nnd be
tween tiem and camp, sand, mesqulte, cac
tus and prairie dogs or gophers, as they
are called down here. The wind Is al
ways freih, sometimes very much so, and
Texas twisters,' otherwlso whirling sand"
storms, are frequent When you see one
comlr.g don't try to dodge It. don't try
to save your effects: simply hang on to
your tent nnd cot. and trust to God that
nothing you want very much will depart
"Water Is plentiful, from artesian wells,
and said to be unlimited In quantity; cer
tainly there Is no shortage in any of the
camps. Our own is two miles long by
about half a mile deep and laid out In
the most approved style, aa no consideration
need be paid to space occupied.
'I suppose you wonder how we get to
town; hark! One Dodge car Is furnished
on memo to each headquarters of brigade
or higher. I am learning to run It, and
came into town today without stalling the
engine more than three times. And, believe

enough to last me the rest of my life But
I'll come back more convinced than ever
that every cltlsen of this country should
havo a year's active training, some time

a large skeleton force, so that If necessary
a million of trained citizens could be called
to the colors, beginning with the most recent
graduates of the training forces, and a full
supply of equipment be kept on hand
Then this unseemly haste could be avoided,
trained men instead of recruits be called to
the colors, and the spectacle avoided of a
cavalry regiment, 1200 strong, with but one
horse and no mules We need prepared
ness, but no militarism, and that's the way
to get It. The rich man's son should learn
