CO. F RETURNED
Sunday Morning From Ten Days Outing at Camp Lake View
Last Sunday morning the major portion of Company F returned from their annual
encampment at Lake City. Those remaining were Captain Stelle S. Smith,
Lieutenant Dodge, Corporal Joe Hildyard, and Private Claude Johnson, who were
the sharp shooters of Company F, appointed to take part in a contest of all the
expert riflemen from the various companies. The Worthington participants in this
contest have good records and are expected to capture some of the medals offered
for those making the highest scores.
The inspection and drills at camp were quite rigid this year, being conducted
under the same rules and regulations a govern the regular state troops, while on
duty. One new feature of the encampment was sham battle between different
battalions. A very bad accident occurred during one of these encounters, which
made some of the company begin to doubt whether or not they were engaged in
On last Wednesday morning about 7:30 a.m. the 3rd battalion were sent out on
the bluffs near camp where they were to repel an attack by the 1st and 2nd
battalions in sham battle. Strict orders were given for every man in these
battalions to leave all loaded shells at camp and to carry only blank cartridges
with them to be used in this encounter. About 10 o'clock one of Co. B's men was
struck in the right knee and severely wounded. The wounded man was Wm. Paschke
of Faribault. He was attended at once by the hospital staff, who, fortunately,
were near at hand, and who succeeded in checking the flow of blood by means of a
tourniquet, until he could be removed to the regimental hospital, where it was
found necessary to amputate his leg.
A strict investigation was made to detect the one, who had disobeyed orders
and fired the ball cartridge, but as yet the officers have met with no success
in this matter. The loaded and unloaded shells are of entirely different
shape and the only possible explanation for the mistake is that some one was
inattentive to orders given. Co. F was with Co. B in the 2nd battalion at the
time of the accident and therefore it was not a member of their company, who was
responsible for the misdemeanor.
