Sav Astosio, Dee. 2L Special--Under the new army order, which re quires that all officers above the grade of second lieutenant shall pass a satis factory examination before being eligi ble to promotion, a aeries of examin tions have been recently . held.

They ao not lixe it particularly, but can't get around; therefore, at Fort Clark, on five days out of the week; there is the novel spectacle of grizzled captains, lieutenants and r others ' wending their way to school, like village nova. : The system of daily instructions has been -estab lished but a short time, but, it is i erted, is already bearing good fruit.
