They stopped In front of the tents, played such a fanfare as onlv drums and nfes can maxe, summoned forth the occupants and shook hands, threw their arms about the gray shoulders and in a dozen other ways showed their feelings of friendship. They kept it up for hour after hour and visited practically every "Reb" tent. Their reception was as warm as their greeting.
