Boy Scout:- of America, at Bear Mountain, Interstate park,'tells a bearcat story which he got direct from his boy. ' It was their first night on" the Islands. ™tfr had-been sounded, and the camp was settling down to a quiet slumber, when from, one of the islands came a low, blood-curdling screech. "Some cat," ventured a scout In -on* of the tents. '• '• ' • . <••• "Cat, nothing," exclaimed another In the same tent, excitedly. "It's a wildot." This statement brought six other tousleheads from underneath six blankets ,ln the tent. A hurried conference was called, and It was decided that they just had to go out and get the wildcat. ' '-'••-• Arming themselves with broken oars and old broom-bandies, and with their scout knives safely hitched to their belts, the boys crept stealthily from their tent out into the starry night. The shriek again pierced the still night 'air. ' • ••--'. Suddenly the leader called a halt. His foot touched something. It was another scout. In fact;another group,, anc 'still another group.-;>/Thc scouts began to assemble rapldl» ( ,and It finally seemed that every tent had a delegation present. :ErcIted;-whispers as to how to proceed"?broke the silence, but suddenly everybody grew quiet, as a tall figure loomed up In the darkness. It was Lieut. H. Hudson of Westfleld, 1C. J., resident director of the camp. "I've got the wildcat, fellows," he said quietly; "now hustle back to camp." Lieutenant: Hudson would advance no Information, but ordered everybody back to bed. But the story leaked out end spread from tent to tent. The truth was that the shriek was not that of a wild cat, but an ordinary boy scout imitating that animal. The wild- oat was Scout George Becker of West Hoboken. THE §EA SCOUT'S CHANTEY.

At a victory celebration for the soldiers at Geneseo, N. Y., the boy scouts were asked to take care of two airplanes and guard them through the long night. Some happy scouts are those of Los Angeles Troops 1 and 2. A short time ago they went over to Hollywood ind were the guests of Mary Pick- Cord, the movie star, who not only ?ave them a royal reception, but also presented th,em with $25 for troop squlpment. SCOUTS LIKE WOOL CAMP DUDS Bodily moisture can evaporate through woolens much more easily than through cottfn or linen cloth, which keeps the moisture in its texture Until It is thoroughly saturated. And It is the dampness n^xt to the skin that causes colds and chills—so stick to Woolens. . But, see that you wash 'em right! You kill their betterness right off If m let little bits of soap get in between the fibers an-;! thus clog up UJB channels through which the. moisture Is supposed to go. A good way is to soak the garments In lukewarm suds, then squeeze out the water by pulling the woolens through the hands. And don't twist or wring, if you don't want to invite sketching or shrinking. Just get out as much of the water as ' you possibly can and hang the "duds" up to dry. i To Develop French Water Power. - A bill for the canalization of the Rhone and the employment of water power was introduced. in tbe French chamber of deputies on August 9. The cost of the-'scheme is estimated at 2> 500,000,000 francs (S482,qOO,000) and the total power to be obtained will aot be less than the equivalent ob-! tained from 5,000,000 tons of coal, or' one-fifth of the coal production of 1 France for ,19181.
