"I bave no doubt that tbe members

the gnard must be preserved and it can
only b done by enforcing proper
measures to preserve discipline and the
gnard will remain until tue end of the

of infraction of the law by soldiers

Quartermaster Tracy says that the state
rations were probably never worse than
they are this year. A lot of beef had to be
condemned on Wednesday. Major Cool
baugh, the commicsary of the Third brig

day nbout the excellence of the rations.
"Ihere are no flies npon them." said the
dignified major with considerable satisfac
tion. 'I don't know nbout that." retorted
Major Mattes. "There were nlentv of
Hies on the beef Compauy A, of the Tnir

bad to be burled."

Sergeant John Moir, of Company C. was
anxious to have au opportunity to view
the eights of Gettysburg and as the bono
ot obtaining a pass was meagre he resorted
to euDlerluzc Captains bave the privi
lege of going to and from town without
question so Moir obtained a captain's coat
und cap. gave his moustachn a proper mili
tary waxing and started. He was the most
soldierly looking peraonage in the town
ana ought nave passed tor anything from
a ui 'sion ttatt otucer down. As be passed
the i tlitary patrols he received tne salute
due ..Is rnuk until he met one careless
guard who saluted him ia a balf-hearted
manner. . "Captain" Jack would tolerate
nothing of thut kind and. assuming hie
most serious tone, wanted to Kujw if
"that wus tho war he had been taucut to
salute nn olllcerf" "I I dou'tknow whether
I was everehown the right way or not,"
replied the guard with troubled counten
ance, ilust then a corporal ot the guard
rushed to the sceue and made haste to ex
plhin that the guard was a new recruit aud
bad not been.instruoted as to tbe proper
salute. "You'd better take him arouud
ou a side street, then, and show him tbe
salute, We cp.n't tolerate such an exhibi
tion on a public street. It would briug
tbe National guard into disrepute," se
verely said Mr. Moir.- "All right, cap
tain," said the corporal, saluting, as he
dragged the unfortunate recruit into an
adjoining nlleywuv. Half an hour later
Captain Moir passed the same guard again.
This time the latter was prepared. He
straightened out, hold head erect aud.
with his bund held on a level with his
shoulder, gave a salute that would bave
done credit to a regular. Captain Moir
smiled approvingly, commended the uiaa
and passed ou.
