Guy V. (to head of column on cavalry hike)-—“It’s a very good plan to speak to the inhabitants of the country you're passing through; it increases their confidence in you.” (This is duly absorbed by the Kaydets. Five minutes later they pass a farm-house, where a young woman is leaning over the gate.)
Guy V. (cordially) ‘‘Good morning!”
Young Woman (enthusiastically) “ Oh, you kid!I!"
Instructor (to squad) “We halt here two minutes. Give your horses fifteen swallows of water."
Hoisington “ Do they tether horses closer together on the picket line in winter than in summer so that they can keep warm?”
Instructor Is that a store up on the hill?"
Jake Bagby “ Xo, sir; it's a saloon."
Instructor—“ Do they sell Bull Durham there?”
Jake “ No, sir; but they have Duke's Mixture."
Scene Practice March. Members of mapping detail sitting on ground dead-beating; Schimelfenig eating huge blackberry pie with evident enjoyment. Enter Instructor.
Instructor Mr. Schimelfenig. don't feed that pie to the map.”

passed, “Hey, what do you think of our L. P.'s?" The ferns, all-confiding and all-unconversant in kaydet slang, were immensely boot-licked! A grand hop at the Lakeview House ended the ceremonies, and ii was on the way home therefrom that the only casualty of the hike occurred. Jim Burt collided with a stone wall, to the great damage of his fair countenance.
The retreat to Garrison was completed in record time, and only once was contact secured with the Blues. The open hills over which this engagement was fought gave us a final chance to see what a real engagement looked like, and the drama that we there enacted was a fitting close to the week’s work. The whole country was the l est we have yet travelled over, and gave men whose very souls cried out against the brush-fighting of former years, a much appreciated glimpse of service in a country where you can see far enough ahead to tell what the other fellow is doing.

IT was not an invincible nor even an inspiring cavalcade that swept up the long Garrison hill to the horse-show grounds, but it was the best that time and ci rcumstances perm i 11ed.
A misunderstanding in regard to the horse-show of 1909 caused many of the best riders of the class to remain at home. We would like to correct any wrong impression that might be gained by others by stating that the horse-show was an immense success, and thoroughly appreciated by every cadet that attended. Aside from any mean thoughts of dead-beating inspection and confinement, every man was inspired with a desire to learn more of horses and their ways, and the afternoon’s trip certainly proved to be an interesting one.
The cavalry plugs ranged up well alongside the thoroughbreds of the Garrison exhibitors in everything except jumping. The jumps were higher than those to which our horses had lxien accustomed. Again, the cadet horses had l cen practiced on ground that furnished a good foothold, while at Garrison the takeoff was very slippery. What little grass that remained had dried up on the hard ground, making it so slippery that many even of the fine hunters refused to try the jumps.
Even at that, the cadet exhibitors were not wholly excluded in the comj cti-tion. Estes held up the honor of the riding-hall, winning third place by taking Dorst over the jumps in excellent form. His riding was perfect, and besides satisfying the most exacting requirements of our riding instructors, lie made every cadet there proud of him.
The other men that entered in the jumps were Gilbreath, Booton, Surlcs, Cowles, Hardy, Lucas, Dillman. and McKinney. They were not so fortunate as to have high jumpers, and their horses refused to try.
Miss Harriman. who won first honor on a beautiful chestnut gelding, is to be complimented upon her wonderful riding, as well as Mr.
H. F. Osborn, Jr., who took the second place.
Where the cadet competitors, however, clearly outclassed the others was in the polo pony competition, and but for the fast pony ridden by Miss Burton, would have taken every place. The competition consisted in a race between six flags set ten feet apart. The win-
