Scouts in Camp. IT. was very enjoyable ! As one writes there arises before one the picture of the little camp, the three tents in the shade of some wattle trees, the hill in the background, the smoke of the camp fire climbing lazily into the air, the blue sky, and above all the rushing, splashing, ex hilarating stream. What a' stream it is !

Five swims a day was the usual allowance, but these hardly satisfied the amphibious * Chicken " and " Colley." Do you object to nicknanies ? We had in camp a weird assortment of them " Bones," " Cowboy," " Keystone," (alias " Casey"'), 'Z Crawfish," and several others that for the moment have escaped my memory.
