CAMP MOUNT. Last Sunday For the Boys at Home Camp. Third BeRiment Left-For Chiekamauga Yesterday Afternoon. Cuss County Boys Will Get Away To day—A Pharos Reporter's Observations. Camp Mount was tbe scene of an- otDer immense gathering of people yesterday. Thousands took advantage of the low rates oflered by the different railroads and went to the capital city to see a relative or friend in the service. This was probably the last chance to visit them, for tbe troops are moving to Cnickamauga. A Pharos representative went to Camp Mount Saturday night and visited Company M. in their quarters. Company M, now known as a part of the 150th Ind. Vole., are nicely arranged In camp. They have twenty- three tsnts, in which the eighty- three men sleep. Captain Bender has a tent to himself, and Lieuten- arits Dunn and Fitch bave one together. Souae trouble was experienced in getting through the lines after dark, and It took nearly an hour to get to Company M'9 grounds. Captain Bender was In bis tent, reading, and tbe other officers were lounging about in tbe difierent tents talking. All appeared to be in good spirits and aside, from slight colds, were in gbod'Jiealth. Taps sounded before half of the boys had ; bsen seen. Sunday morning the eun shown brightly and Its warm rays cheered the men up; Their camp life has not been as pleasant as It might have been on account of the weather, and when a.pretty.'.'day happens along there is general rejoicing. Yesterday was also-* busy day and early in the morning those who did not go on guard duty were busy cleaning up and getting on their "oiled" shirta in preparation to receive a large crowd of Logansport people, whom they fait sure would come, The boys were greatly disappointed about the Panhandle excursion train not running, but were somewhat encouraged by the number of people from home, who came by way of the L. E. & W. The first business of importance .occurring yesterday was the signing of the musterlng-in roll to the United States service. Although sworn in several days ago, their names were never put on paper that was official. When their names were signed they were released from the National Guard and .will,draw pay as such to that time, while the : salary of ths U. S. soldier commences at ouce. The "guard mount" was an Interesting feature of the morning's work. It consisted of detailing nearly 300 guards for duty for the succeeding twenty-four hours. Seven men from Company M marched with the rest to the center olthe field opposite the grand stand. They could be distinguished a long distance because of their citizens clotb.es, the uniforms having not yet arrived. The Regimental band, consisting of two memoers from each company, furnished the music and the boys from Logansport, outside of a little swerving of the line, kept time like old regulars. Much "falling in" and "falling out" was gone through with and wnen the ceremony was finished the men were maroned away with two buglsrs in the lead to the different lines of the camp, the band returning to their headquarters. At 10:30 Lieutenant Dunn called his company together and marched them to the place where regimental »< 11 1 1 One pleasure in using Clevelands I Baking Powder You need never fear results. It raises just right every time. 11 11 services were held. The men sat down on the ground and the service was very impressive. The last service in camp and the appearance of the men with cowed and uncovered heads during prayer, together with the words of the chaplain moved many in the audience to tears. This^Mr^ice has a telling effect on themiforit v yof the men, but there were a few who probibly did not know what .their chaplain was saying. ..-•-• -'.'"•""•''.-'•?, Returning to camp, Bob Vpll : and Harry Cory were visited in the'coolf-i tent. They put together enough food at each meal for ..Company' M, and the men are loud Ia thelr'rpraise of the cooks. Beef, potatoes," bread and two barrels of hardtack were piled all around the two . men and their busiest time in the day was on- Company M was fortunate in securing good rations and especially fortunate in (jetting a good cook. Captain Bender and other commissioned officers were ia different quarters and also have good cooks. Their food while good, clean and wholesome, is not what they got at home, bat several weeks practice has educated them up to a point where .the/ do not notice anything missing. Shortly after dinner a delegation from Tipton surrounced Company I, oftheieOdh Reg., from that city, and one of the party presented the company with a beautiful flag. The orator's last words were as he handed the flag to the captain: "Remember the Maine." The officer could not reply and the gentleman said: '.'Your actions speak lounder than words." Many similar touching scenes were witnessed during the day and brought back distinct cremembrances-of the sorrow manifested here when the boys were first called. There were many fathers and mothers sitting in the tents with the contents of a well-filled basket of "home grub" spread on the ground, spending the day with tbe son, who now seexns dearer to them than ever. In most every case the tents had been deserted by the other occupants and the soldier boy given an opportunity to spend the last day in camp with his loved ones uninterrupted. Preparations were being made neariy all day for the departure of the troops for Cbickamauga,and after dinner tbe 157th Regiment was lined' up and paid for their service as militiamen. This consumed several hours and it was late m the afternoon when the 1,020 men of that regiment marched out of the main entrance to the fair ground and away towards Indianapolis, which was fully six miles distant. The 157this known as the old 3d Regiment and was camped ID buildings about the grounds. In conversation with Lieutenant- Colonel Msy,of the 167th,he said that batteries A and E would leave during the night for Ohickamauga, following the 157th; that the 160th Regiment, known as the old 4th, would leave Indianapolis today, and that the 159th, the old 1st, would stay In camp until equipped and await further orders. The light artillery, under Captain Curtis, of Indianapolis, which left last night, has 121 men and four commissioned officers. It was known as the old battery A and now as the 27t,h Battery Ind.^Yol. They have six rapid firing guns, all breech- loading, Colt's pattern. The Light Artillery. Battery of Fort Wayne moved with the Curtis company. The men made a fine appearance as they marched out of the grounds and were greeted by crowds on every cross street on tbe way .to the Union depot, where they took the train for Chickamauga via Louisville.
