We left our camp at 6 130 Monday morning and took the train as far as Cqfmp Abello, and we had twelve miles to walk to the range. We left Camp Abello at 10130 and got here at 4 oclock; is some place. We are at the foot of the Blue Ridge mountains. We are all well and didn't mind the- hike at all. This morning we started shooting. All we have to make is 105 points out of 175. I maae 143 points on the 100-yard range; 48 out of 50 on the 150-yard, and 55 out of 75 on the 3ooyard. Tiiis last was the hardest; b*e- caute we had to use the battle- sight foi five shots, and the battle-sight is for 500 yards. Then we had to shoot five shots with the bayonet off 4 which made the gun jump more and harder^ to hold. Now don't woiry if you don't hear from me for a while, because we haven't any lights in our tents except candles, and ours is almost burnt out, and we don't have much time to our- selves. Best regards to all. Affectionately John Camp Wads worth — w. s, s. — optmwl mice qvaiifj ftfc v«cy m&fr- er*J» prieo», Herald Offie*.

E. church to an audience that completely filled it, some even being turned away. The following were the singers: sopranos, Mrs. Jas. W. Aitchison, Mrs. A. W. Hawkins, Mrs. G. Stuart Curtis, Mrs. E. T. Clements, Mrs. E. E. Mc- Knighti; altos, Mrs. Frederic J. Merriman, Mjss Luella Wilson ; tenors, Allen C. Meeker, S. Burton Stiait, Rev. Edgar T. Clements j basses Arthur W. Hawkins*, Elmer E. McKnight, James R. Aitchison, John A. Andrew. For a village as small as Mad- rid and with as little trained vocal talent, such an attempt is very presuming, but, as is usual with Mr.- Hawkins, his energy- and ability as a musical director carried the enterprise through to % successful and very pleasing conclusion. Even the tender and intricate harmonies were executed with an e3ccellentde,gree of p«ecision> while the menV voices were particularly rich and strong. Mr. Hawkins' solo work was fully up to his own high standard, if not better. Such renditions contribute distinctly and generously to. the cultivation of a choice musical taste,especial- ly among the young. I W. 8.
