GRETNA. Arrived In tho City Saturday Morn lnp In TImo for tho Members of tho Regiment to Breakfast nt Their Homos Colonol Watros Highly Pleased with tho Manner In Which His Men Conducted Thomsolvos During tho Week Few Cases of Dlsorderllnoss Roported. Tho Thhteenth regiment arrived home nt 8.10 o'clock Saturday morn ing from Camp Magco, Mt. Orctnii, after n long hut not unpleasant ride. Their tinln left Mt. Gretna at 10.1S o'clock Fildny night, camp being broken pimoptlj nt 8 o'clock. Tho long trnln Into which the com panies ctowded consisted of llnel.v equipped Ichlgh Valley coaches, which afforded the bovs evers' accommoda tion during their ten bouts' journey. Captain George Merrlman, of Com pany V, was olllccr of the day, hut his peilodlcal trip thioiigh the tialn found everything quiet nnd oideily. On nrrlvlng nt the Delnwuie and Hudson station, tho regiment formed and, with Colonel Wntres and his staff at the head of tho column mauhed up Lackawanna to Wyoming, and from theto to Washington and the new armors-, whero equipment was de posited, after which tho dusty-looking soldier boys In khaki left for their vat Ions homes and had tho satisfac tion of eating breakfast with their families. a pli:asaxt wi:i:k. The encampment, on the whole, piovod a most pleasant week for sol diers and ofllcets alike to look back upon. Colonol Wattes has declared himself hlghls satlsiled with the way his men conducted themselves and, In deed, the camp was an exemplary one. Onl' a few Individual cases of dls orderllnoss wete repotted, and these occunlng In the early part of the week were attributable to the speakeass' nuisance In the company streets, which Colonel Wntres piomptly did nwny w Ith. Tho ramp was a model of clennll ness, cery compnns' street being en tltels' fiee from scinps of paper or tho least debris. There were sots' few ac cidents nnd the genernl health was excellent. It was pietts" warm during sftmo of tho drills, but nevettheless the men bore up against the weather like veterans, nnd Mnjor Keller nnd his staff of woikers had little to do lu the way of nldlng victims of ' "at rtostialion. Mirth nnd Jollity liugned supreme nil week nnd after taps was sounded nights nnd lights wete out, many wete tho'practlcal Jokes played upon unfor tunate "rookies," ns tho new enlisted men are contemptuously termed by their experienced brethren In the lanks. A clever jest was enacted nt the tent of Major Frank Hobllng Thuisdny night. TIIH MAJOR'S PINK TKA. The major was giving his "pink tea," ns he rather lnnptlj termed his farewell party, at which were present the field and staff of the regiment and the oQIcers of his battalion. About 10. 10 o'clock, several otilcets of the Twelfth leglment Joined the festive thtong and with them was a pottly Teuton, visiting In the tamp. He was a pondetous individual, weighing nbout two bundled nnd thlit' pounds, nnd w eating a military coat, borrowed ftom nn ofllcer. About an hour after his ai rival, one of the Thhteenth's ofllcers slipped away and had a brief talk Ith the ofllcer of the provost guat d, which icsulted In tho arrival upon the scene soon after of that dignitaty and his men. Walking up to tho big Get man, ho laid his hand heavily upon his shoul der nnd luitly lemiuked: "You are under arrest, sir." 'Tutor an est! Melu Gott, what hat I done'.'" t-tammered his unfoi tunitto pilsoner, nervously dropping on a chair half a glassful of "pink tea." "You aie wearing an oflleer's coat, which It Is against the rules of this camp for a civilian to do," sternly answered tho ofllcer. DID NOT KNOW HIM. "Rut I am all right. I haf no other goat with me," stammered tho Ger man. "These ohentlemen can identi fy me. They know who I am." With which ho turned to the ofllcer who had Introduced him Into tho parts', and plteously appealed for recognition. All lie received, however, was a steels' glance, and a cold, "Ofllcer, I never saw tho man before In my life." Ho lecclved tho same treatment fiotn nil present and the guaid hunted him nround to tho guaid house, wheic, af ter thoroughly frightening hhn by a fierce display of bayonets, thes' al lowed him to go back to his quartets, after sui tendering the coat. Just befoto the leglment left camp, Sergeant R. J. Hauer led his band around the company stieets, In each of which the men were lined up In foimaj array to greet and che6r the talented nggiegatlon of musicians who won flesh lauiels for themselves dining the encampment. Headquuiteis also wa; ecienadcd. Following this, the entire leglment, led by the band, matched to the brigade headquaiteis as fat ew ell to General Gobin and his staff. Tho brgade com mander met the regiment and made a very nice little speech, In which ho warmly pialsed the leglment for the excellent woik it had dono In camp, and said many exceedingly pleasant things nbout Colonel L. A. Waties and his Scrnnton command. SAMUEL HARLEY ARRESTED. Ho Had a Skirt, Believed to Have Been Stolen, in His Possession, Samuel Hurley was at rested Saturday morning by Patrolman Addyman for behaving In a disorderly manner on Center street, and -was found to have In his possession a skirt belonging to a woman named Lottie Smith, who re bides at 309 Oakfoid court.

He got off backwards and In landing stiuck some ralhoad tle which were lying alongside the track. This caused him to slip and his body In falling was sent under the wheels of the train, where It was hoirlbly crushed nnd man gled almost bes'ond recognition. The grief of Mis. Wnlsh and her large fam ily of children when they learned of the accident nnd viewed the remains was pathetic In the extreme. The body was viewed bv Cot oner Sic Kee, of Luzerne counts', who gave per mission to have It temoved to Oly phant. The dead man was a miner by occupation and had lived on Dempsey street, Olyphant, for a number of years, lie was 4,ri yeais old nnd Is sutvlved by a wife nnd nine children.
