This course of thirty daily lessons is offered to the men selected for
service in the National Army as a practical help in getting started in trie
right way. It is informal in time and does not attempt to give binding
rules and directions. These are contained in the various manuals and reg regulations

Cleanliness in Camp
When large numbers of men arej
assembled in camp it is necessary forj
the good of all that strict rules of
personal conduct and sanitation
should be enforced. These rules are
by no means a hardship. They are a
protection. By insisting on strict
obedience to these rules, the diseases
which once took so heavy a toll in
nearly all military camps have been
brought under control; some have
been practicaly eliminated.
Suppose you were asked to make a
choice; either to live under conditions
in which small pox, typhoid fever,
diarrhoea, dysentery and cholera
flourish; or to live under strict reg
ulations, which make these diseases
far more of a rarity in military than
in civil life. Your good sense would
lead you to choose the latter. Bear
this in mind. See to it that you co cooperate

One of the pests of camp life, if
perfect cleanliness is not observed, is
the presence of swarms of flies. Flies
are not merely annoying. They are
dangerous. Somebody has said, with
perhaps a slight exaggeration, that
to soldiers they are more dangerous
than bullets. This is because flies
c?rry disease germs. They feed on
manure, garbage, uncovered food,
human excreta and the like. They also
lay their eggs wherever refuse of the
same kind is found. The best way to
keep flies away from camps is to de
stroy the places where they breed and
feed; in other words, keep the camp
For this reason the daily "policing
(or cleaning up) of the camp is a
matter of first importance. You will
be required to keep your company

bits of food, and the like, which
might attract flies or other insects

This is washday for Company A,

which the boys regret their sojourn
at Uribeno and other suburban re resorts

redeeming feature of Uribeno that a
soldier could go down to the river,
reduce himself to his birthday suit,
wash his clothes in the flowing
stream, spread them on the rocks to
dry and in the meantime nestle in
some sunny spot, nursing his rifle
and "rolling his own. It was in this

place, that the boys, while shooting
craps with the said dice, and waiting
for their clothes to dry, acquired
those close-fitting but airy suits of
tan, which most of them yet possess.
They are not finding washday easy, as
they have only two inadequate places
at the armory to do their laundry. A
soldier is supposed to have two suits,
one to wear and one to wash, and
whenever washday comes they wish
they were working for the sultan of
Sarahwhack or some other potentate
who doesn't require one of his soldiers
to wear any other uniform than a
Snider rifle and a cartridge belt.
The older men, who broke in their
clothes on the border, and kept them
tame during the "interim," are doing
all right, but some of the new ones

Is any cause worth such a cost?
I know the question God! so well!
I've asked it when a mate was lost
And life was just a dream of hell.
But when the doubting devil drums
In every heart-beat are you right?
There is an answer always comes
My mother's face, as small and white
And pure and shining as a star.
Tears, but no doubts,were in her eyes.
She was as sure as angels are
That God is King of Paradise,
As sure as that my life was worth
The long inexorable pain
Oh, mother, you have brought to birth
A man again!

"Put her off to the east ard. cap

I jumped out of my berth and reach

Stopping only to put on my trousers,
I ran on deck and, taking the wheel
