Co. F. 2nd INFANTRY, M.N.G.
Company Order No. 24
Departure Co. F will leave for the annual tour of field duty on the
night train on the C., St. P. M. & O. Ry., leaving Worthington Wednesday, July
15-16, 1908, returning July 16th, 1908.
Equipment Each man will be provided by the Quartermaster with uniform,
leggins, campaign hat, hat cord, 2 chambray shirts, rifle, bayonet, cartridge
belt, canteen, haversack, shelter tent, half blanket, roll straps, blanket and
Each man should provide himself with 2 white collars, handkerchiefs,
toothbrush, soap, towel, comb, needle and thread, extra stockings and underwear.
All other baggage is prohibited.
The blue uniform shall be turned into the Quartermaster at once to be packed
Duty Company F has by its two years service in the Third Regiment
attained a high standard of excellence, and holds an enviable position in the
esteem of the officers and men of the guard, and it is the earnest desire of the
commanding officer, and should be of every man that, upon this our first tour of
duty with the Second Regiment, that standard and position shall be advanced in
every department that makes for an efficient fighting organization, especially
as regards attendance, marksmanship, and soldierly conduct.
Attendance Orders for camp duty originate with the Commander-in-cheif
(sic) and company commanders have no authority to grant furloughs or leaves of
absence from that duty. However application for such leave, stating the reason,
if any, may be made in writing to the company commander and the same will be
forwarded by him through channels, with or without his approval, as the reason
stated may seem to warrant.
There are now pending several applications for enlistment and failure to
attend the encampment or to make seasonable application as stated will be deemed
sufficient ground to discharge the delinquent, especially if his place and
equipment be required for the accommodation of recruits, or his record is
There are many men in the ranks as capable and worthy of holding warrants as
those who now wear the stripes, and it is manifestly unjust that such should
attend camp with the rank and pay of privates when their superiors are
delinquent. Accordingly notice is given that all non-commissioned officers
should attend the full period or resign their offices.
If for any reason a man can attend but five days, he should go the first five
if possible and make his application for furlough while in camp.
Marksmanship Much attention is now being given to marksmanship
throughout the Union, and Congress has equipped the entire Guard with the new
Springfield rifle, the best military arm in the world. Many inducements in the
way of medals, decorations, competitions and privileges are offered to enlisted
men to perfe[c]t themselves in this regard.
Soldierly Conduct However much the company commander desires a full
attendance at camp, yet he prefers to dispense with the presence of any man who
does not resolve, and in that resolution persist that during this duty he will
faithfully apply himself to the duties of a soldier, and will ever regard the
soldier's motto; "OBEY FIRST, COMPLAIN LATER."
Special drills will be held July 13, 14 and 15, in preparation, and should be
attended by all, especially the new men.
Let each man retain and refer to this order in procuring his equipment.

likeness of each one is perfect. We also saw a fine four generation picture
which he had recently made for Mr. Burr Ludlow, of Rushmore, and another four
generation photo which he was furnishing for Mr. George Voak, of Brewster.
A jolly party of young folks from Sioux Falls, S.D., are in camp
at the chautauqua grounds. The party is composed of Mr. and Mrs. H.C Schlosser,
Phillip Schlosser, Misses Maud Scudder and Carrie Black ad Mrs. Grace Austin.
They have been spending a two weeks' vacation here but will break camp today and
return to Sioux Falls, sounding the praises of Worthington as a summer resort
and of beautiful Lake Okabena as an ideal expanse of water near which to camp.
Charles Sowles is quite ill at his home with an attack of blood
poisoning. The trouble originated in a carbuncle and has now developed in an
infection similar in character to that from which Dow Mitchell is suffering. His
condition is not as critical at this time as Mr. Mitchell's as the joint of the
knee has not become affected. Dr. Mork, on Monday opened the wound to assist in
drainage, and it is now discharging freely, which has a salutary effect, and it
is the hope of his many friends that he may speedily regain his usual health.
Mrs. A.J. King, and two children, Myron A. and Miss Nina, Mrs.
N.M. Tallman and son, Thorne, and Miss Jeannette Brown, all of Kansas City, Mo.,
arrived in Worthington Wednesday and will spend the next three or four weeks on
the shores of Lake Okabena. They have secured quarters at the home of M.P. Mann.
Several of the party have been here before, so when they planned on taking an
outing they decided that beautiful Okabena was about the proper spot. There is
no reason why Okabena and Worthington should not be made as popular as a summer
resort as any of the resorts in the state, as all who come here go away
enthusiastically praising both town and lake.
A pretty home wedding was consummated at the residence of Mr.
and Mrs. A. Nazerenus, in Elk township, last Tuesday evening at seven o'clock,
when Rev. Mueller, pastor of the German Lutheran church of Brewster, spoke the
words that joined in happy wedlock their daughter, Miss Anna, to Mr. Aaron O.
Wensberg, of La Crosse, Wis.

accepted a position as foreman of the Advance-Herald. He comes here from
Watertown, S.D., where he held a similar position on the Daily Public Opinion.

gentlemanly bearing and upright habits.

The typhoid epidemic at Mankato is abating. There are a few new
cases reported each day but the number is small compared to a week ago. Four
deaths have occurred so far which is a remarkable small percentage when the
number of cases and the character of the disease is considered. The authorities
of the city deserve a considerable measure of credit for the manner which the
epidemic has been handled.

Brandon, Vermont, who will spend a short time with her before returning to her
home in the Green Mountain state.
On Monday a photograph was taken of Oscar F. Blood, Mrs. A.
Blood, Mrs. A.A. Jones and Miss Hattie Blood. To the casual reader this simple
announcement does not have much significance, but when it is known that those
who posed for the photograph represent four generations of one family and the
oldest child of each generation, it becomes a matter of interest. That is
exactly what this particular photo means. Mrs. A.A. Blood of Morningside, Sioux
City, Iowa, is the mother of Mr. Oscar F. Blood and Mrs. A.A. Jones is his
grandmother; Miss Hattie Blood is his eldest daughter. The family is quite proud
of the distinction which they enjoy and the photo will doubtless be greatly
prized by present and future generations.
Wags Spoil Plans of Chas. Pannell By Advertising
Last Thursday night at 10 o'clock at the home of the groom's
parents in this city occurred the marriage of Charles M. Pannell, formerly of
Worthington, but who of late years has been making his home te
[at?] Drinkwater, Saskatchewan, Canada, and Miss Mabel F. Anderson, of
Org. The ceremony was performed by Rev. William Fletcher, pastor of the
Congregational church, in the presence of the immediate relatives of the
The groom is well and favorably known in this city where he grew
to manhood. A few years ago he went to Saskatchewan, where he engaged in
business and has prospered. The bride is one of Worthington township's most
estimable young ladies whom we regret to lose.
The marriage took on the nature of an informal affair, if such a
term may be applied to a wedding, but the groom was the recipient of an urgent
message recalling him to Drinkwater, and so decided to take his bride with him
at this time. After the ceremony a bountiful wedding supper was served and the
young couple left on the two o'clock train for their Canadian home.
An amusing feature of the wedding and one that upset the plans
of the young couple for a quite [quiet] marriage,
was the posting of large placards bearing the inscription:
This placard placed in conspicuous places by some wag served to
notify their friends of their intention and shortly after the ceremony
mysterious gatherings could be seen on the street corners and about eleven
o'clock the crowd gathered in front of the residence and gave the happy couple a
good old fashioned charivari, the instruments employed in creating the bedlam
embracing every known noise-maker from dynamite cans to the vocal organs.
The young couple departed on the two o'clock train for their
future home amidst showers of rice and congratulations of their friends. The
Advance-Herald joins with the host of friends in wishing them a smooth and
pleasant journey over the sea of matrimony.
