Last Thursday the degree team of
Fort ,King Camp, W. O. W., of this
city and afew of its members were
guests of Eustis Camp No. 431, in the
pretty Lake county city.
Owing to many of the men not be
ing able to get off very early in the
afternoon, the team went down in
autoes four in all leaving at differ
ent times from 3:30 to 5 o'clock.
The trip to Eustis was made with
out mishap, other than two of the
cars having blowouts and another
losing the road and wandering around
the country for a short time.
On their arrival at Eustis the boys
found everything in readiness for
them and after they had partaken of
coffee' and sandwiches the meeting
was called to order by Consul Com
mander Butler of Eustis Camp, with
a large assemblage and two candi
dates in waiting.
Following the business meeting of
the Eustis camp and after several
short talks had been given, the floor
was turned over to the Fort King
degree team and the goat turned
loose to feed upon Lake county fresh
meat, which he did to his satisfaction.
. The candidates having been duly
escorted over the many and treacher
ous byways, and having, been brought
safely over the quagmires to the inner
circle of the forest, where they were
given their final instruction in Wood
craft, one of the big features of the
evening, one tha .always brings out
